Dem Foes Try To Eat Trump Alive . . . But He Grows New Limbs

September 10, 2023 Frontpage No Comments


“I’m so hungry I could eat a horse!”
Through and through, that’s an exaggeration. No one believes that even a famished person could do that for a meal.
But what if an emaciated person not only did it, but also ordered up a second horse, and then a third and cleaned his plate — or whatever eating surface he needed to accommodate that size of repast. Only Clydesdales on the menu, please, no little ponies.
Look there, even the hooves and horseshoes went down the hatch.
That would be overkill for sure. Or at least remarkable overfill. It’s not only unreasonable but impossible that such enormous consumption would be demanded to solve the problem.
In a way that’s the equivalent of what’s being done on the legal front by the enemies of Republican Donald Trump, who’s being eaten alive by voracious foes. (Trump, however, manages to grow new arms and legs to replace the devoured limbs.) Their demands are insatiable.
These radical Democrats can’t get enough. Up and down the East Coast, they never seem satisfied with how many knives come out to carve up Trump. More, more!
He’s regarded as the worst man in U.S. history by foes out of control. Or maybe North American history? Or of the Western Hemisphere? This 77-year-old would face hundreds of years in prison.
Nor is the witch hunt confined along the Atlantic coast. Out near the Pacific Ocean, to take an example, the extremist Democratic Party governor and attorney general of Arizona — specially installed left-wingers Katie Hobbs and Kris Mayes, respectively — wanted to have their own go at assaulting Trump legally.
At least this is the landscape of opinion as it’s reported and mapped at the establishment level. Not so much attention is given to the perceptions and attitudes of the many Americans who see this as obvious overkill.
Occasionally a video appears of people on the street saying they recognize this banana republic politics for what it is. It’s not the pursuit of justice against a flagrant criminal. It’s a corrupt, decaying establishment terrified that finally a foe is confronting it who has the clout and popularity to end the uniparty’s unlimited schemes and frauds.
Both black and Hispanic voters are among those drifting away from the Democratic Party, making it increasingly vulnerable. And Asians see themselves being denied opportunities because of left-wing “woke” ideology that considers them a successful class that deserves some punishment.
Phoenix radio conservative talk host James T. Harris (KFYI, 550 AM) told listeners on September 5 that even rappers are coming out in support of Trump now, including one who during the 2016 presidential campaign dismissed Trump with an obscenity. Harris, who himself is black, noted that life was better under Trump.
The Daily Caller website posted an article September 5 headlined, “Biden’s Support Is Crumbling Among Nonwhite Voters, Analysis Finds.”
On September 3 the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette posted an article by roving national writer Salena Zito about unhappy middle-class black voters. It was headlined, “Democrats beware: These Black voters are fed up, and looking for a political home.”
Zito said that she sat down with six such voters for hours to discuss the state of politics. She wrote: “What was most interesting is their shared belief that neither party is listening to them, with the Democrats taking the brunt of their criticism for promising change that never comes and taking them for granted, while Republicans struggle — sometimes comically — to give them a reason to support the party.”
A person might note that Trump made a point of not being a regular Republican — while he went on in the White House to post a mostly conservative record of accomplishment.
Three mostly conservative, pro-life Supreme Court justices were confirmed in Trump’s four years. But when other GOP presidents had the opportunity to appoint more than one justice, there were sore disappointments, like Ronald Reagan’s Sandra Day O’Connor and Anthony Kennedy, and George H.W. Bush’s David Souter.
When prominent Republican presidential candidates for 2024 held their first debate on August 23, Trump not only declined to join them but counterprogrammed with his own interview run at the same time with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
At that GOP debate, conservative viewers saw some candidates they’d consider worthy of their vote if one of them secured the presidential nomination, while other faces on stage represented the past.
The extent of uniparty presumption of a right to rule perhaps had reached its height in the closing years of the twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-first, when five people from only two immediate families either held the presidency or were put forward for it — on the Republican side, George H.W. Bush and sons George W. and Jeb, and on the Democrats’ side, Bill Clinton and wife Hillary.
Out of more than 300 million people, inhabitants under only two roofs deemed themselves suitable for the pinnacle of U.S. political service — but two of those five family members didn’t make it because Barack Obama disrupted Hillary’s plan, then Trump disrupted Jeb’s.

Biden’s Pathetic Path

Thereafter, Democrats became so desperate to thwart the threat that incumbent President Trump represented to establishment rule that they manipulated a campaign through the 2020 pandemic to install worn-out old loser and liar Joe Biden as some kind of savior for goodness and normalcy.
However, it took Biden practically no time at all to show the nation the pathetic path he planned to drag it along as he immediately threw open the southern border, installed pro-abortion radicals like Xavier Becerra at Cabinet level, and ordered a shameful rout of U.S. military forces in Afghanistan.
Before long Biden’s public image was that of a confused clown who had dictators and tough guys around the world watching with glee at what the U.S. ruling class had chosen to install in power.
Reporter Zito’s interview with the six middle-class blacks included this paragraph about Biden’s image:
“Ardell Martin, who spent most of her career working for community newspapers, said…even looking at Mr. Biden makes her so uncomfortable. ‘I think he’s pathetic. In a way, I feel bad for him. I really do. I think he’s lost’.”
The most recent serious embarrassment for Biden as I write this story overnight on September 6-7 for The Wanderer occurred on September 5, when Biden simply walked out of the room after he awarded the Medal of Honor to an 81-year-old Vietnam War veteran, retired Army Capt. Larry Taylor.
While the audience was applauding Taylor as the ceremony continued, and before the closing prayer was said, Biden simply exited by walking down the aisle past the people, a few of whom could be seen on a video looking at Biden’s departing back as if they wondered what he was doing. Back up front, Taylor began looking uncomfortable.
Biden often has seemed lost during public appearances when he doesn’t know what to do or where to turn.
At least a few observations have asked how Biden can be so befuddled and yet also be an alleged evil left-wing genius. But that’s no problem if the befuddled one is just a figurehead.
From early on in his presidency people asked who’s really running Biden’s show. Ron Klain’s name sometimes was suggested while he served as Biden’s first chief of staff.
However, the answer may have been so obvious that it simply was overlooked — like eyeglasses that a person shoves on top of his head then forgets they are there. How about Biden’s old boss Barack Obama, who unusually lived in Washington, D.C., after his eight-year term was over, and who had expressed a liking for the idea of being able to serve a third term.
How better to do that than to call the shots for his Democrat successor? Obama has a huge ego, but he also shows fantastic discipline for enforcing his far-left agenda by removing himself from public notice while actually performing the work of the president.
Biden is surrounded by members of Obama’s former staff, and the far-left extremism of the Biden administration echoes Obama’s eagerness in 2008 voiced to begin what he called the fundamental transformation of America.
Shortly before the November 2008 election, Obama seemed confident about who would win, and it wouldn’t be his Republican presidential foe, U.S. Sen. John McCain. Obama boasted to a campaign crowd in Columbia, Mo., “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
At that time many who opposed Obama asked what was so bad about the traditional U.S. that it needed “transforming.” They soon were to see.
On September 1 the Washington Examiner posted a video of former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich telling Fox News: “My personal guess is that the driving force behind the Biden administration is Barack Obama. Obama is the only president since Woodrow Wilson to stay in Washington,” and that was because Wilson had a severe stroke and couldn’t be moved.
“So, the fact that Obama’s here all the time, and the fact that his staff permeates, literally permeates, the Biden administration, and Obama is really, really smart,” Gingrich said. “Whatever Biden’s problems are at being kind of slow and cognitively decaying, Obama doesn’t have any of those problems.”
Obama is pro-abortion fanatical, too, like the Biden administration. Back when he was an Illinois state senator, Obama went so far as to oppose providing medical care to babies who survived abortion.
Pro-abortion dominant media’s promotion of permissive abortion tries to brush off the extremism of “good Catholic” Biden’s abortion stand, but Washington Examiner columnist Timothy Carney, a pro-lifer, posted on August 29 that Biden isn’t only coming after babies but born pro-lifers, too.
Carney said: “Biden has made it clear that he thinks pro-lifers are outside the bounds of acceptability and worthy of prosecution…. Biden has made it clear that he doesn’t merely disagree with pro-lifers, but that he hates us and wants to sic the federal government on us.”
Although Carney said he considers Trump “uniquely unfit” for office and never had voted for him nor would, he doesn’t agree with those who urge a vote for Biden as preferable to Trump.
“I know plenty of right-of-center folks who voted for Biden in 2020 and probably some who would vote for Biden over Trump again in 2024,” Carney said. But he concluded: “Biden thinks my views place me outside the bounds of acceptable politics, and he uses the DOJ to persecute people for holding those views. That makes it inconceivable that I would vote for him.”
