Around six o’clock in the morning on January 25, FBI agents armed with police-grade M-16 rifles arrested a senior man in his pajamas. The arrest was part of an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, except Roger Stone’s arrest had nothing to do with Russian interference. If an investigation that never served its purpose had never began, Stone would not have been arrested. There are six indictments of former Trump advisers over the last three-year period, and not a single one stems from the purpose the investigation was formed.
Was the purpose of the investigation Russia’s meddling at all, or were the investigators always acting on behalf of the Democratic Party? At what point are the FBI and DOJ just paramilitary crusaders fighting political opposition? Democrats may not have a candidate able to beat Trump, but they have government agencies assisting DNC campaigning, and who needs grassroots when you have badges, gunpowder, and brass?
Making the arrest of Roger Stone with terrorizing force was one thing, but tipping off CNN so the network could film it in all of its Minister of Propaganda-esque theater sends an even clearer message. “If you’re thinking about supporting Trump’s reelection in 2020, you could appear in the next filming of The Eternal GOP.”
In the legacy of our previous British tyrannical rulers, Roger Stone is still under a gag order by the same judge that is rushing through the sentencing of the professional provocateur. Lawyers have been taking to social media and the conservative news circuits to explain their outrage since a gag order almost never extends past a conviction.
Even if Stone is guilty of intentionally, willfully lying about details during a hearing (which was never actually proved), this was never about Stone.
Between the makeshift FISA warrants and digging up dirt on President Donald Trump for the last five years, Democrats cannot hope to uncover anything new about the man that they can use against him when they pit their favorite DNC celebrity against him in the November elections. Everything they had, they tried, and none of it was enough to beat him in 2016. But by enacting their own Nuremberg Laws that portray Republicans as criminals, they can scare off potential powerful supporters and advisers from Trump’s reelection campaign.
With this modus operandi, it’s no wonder that the average Democratic voter sees these indictments as a justification to continue irrationally hating everything the president does. Democrats get to point to them and say, “Republicans are so corrupt that they are arrested by the trainload!” They’re unable to recognize the redefined role of the FBI and DOJ, which has given them the broad powers and ability to be their own judicial review. Democrats celebrated the rifle-drawn arrest of a political adversary with the same zest they rejoice over Stone’s extreme sentencing, and that should terrify you.
Stone was not acting in any official capacity for the Trump campaign. He was not a political operative for the Trump campaign. He had no special relationship with Wikileaks. But he was pro-Trump and a member of the media. The most that could be said is that he was trying to get a scoop on the Wikileaks story.
The federal court convicted him of threatening a witness because he said he would have a guy’s pet killed. That is not a threat, it is an absolute joke.
Michael Flynn, George Papadopoulos, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Michael Cohen, and Roger Stone may be guilty of lying to the FBI or “obstructing investigations,” but no person related to President Trump has been accused of collusion with Russians in the 2016 election. Instead, it was their interference with Mueller’s failure of an investigation which led to indictments and guilty pleas in much the same way that undesirables were always found guilty in the basement of Buchenwald.
The Nazi Party came into power in Germany in January of 1933. By the following summer, it was illegal to belong to any other political party. If someone was in violation of these laws, Gestapo police forces would show up just before dawn and raid their home, arrest them, and perhaps while they were still in their pajamas.
