Donald Trump made one of the best pitches to his base as well as anyone else (somehow) still sitting on the fence in the next presidential election. Despite Biden and all Democrats representing tyranny and oppression, there will still be so-called independents waffling in their decision to cast a ballot for Donald Trump.
Why? In a word: Indoctrination.
Be that as it may, Trump delivered some of his best forward-thinking lines for 2024. It’s a refreshing take after listening to cyclical commentary on election fraud and vaccine pitches. Now, this doesn’t mean there wasn’t freedom-stealing fraud on a massive scale and this doesn’t mean we should entirely forgive Trump for his vaccine salesmanship on Candace Owens’ podcast, but it does mean we might have a new version of Trump focused on the real issues ahead of us. As with the costly Senate runoff elections, in which two GOP seats flipped blue, any distraction – no matter how relevant and true – from future issues could easily produce similar results.
As reported by Fox News, Trump spoke forcefully against the political imprisonment facing several hundred American patriots:
“Another thing we’ll do, and so many people have been asking me about it, if I run and if I win, we will treat those people from Jan. 6 fairly,” Trump said, eliciting applause. “We will treat them fairly. And if it requires pardons, we will give them pardons. Because they are being treated so unfairly.”
“This hasn’t happened to all of the other atrocities that took place recently,” Trump continued, appearing to talk about crime across the United States. “Nothing like this has happened. What that ‘unselect committee’ is doing and what the people are doing who are running those prisons is a disgrace. It’s a disgrace. We will treat them fairly.“
This is a huge win for truth and freedom. Both of these concepts are far more important than Trump the person. Anyone that values truth, freedom, fairness, and justice should want to see Merrick Garland’s pawns released immediately.
For sure, there will be strong opinions from our own side questioning why Trump didn’t issue immediate pardons for protestors prior to vacating the White House. Could he have? Should he have? To the first question, a reading of the powers of president vis-a-vis pardons requires a sentence to have been handed down. No such sentencing had been conducted in the two week interim between the alleged Capitol Riot and the Biden Inauguration. As to the second question, we have approached a period in time when the answer is absolutely in the affirmative. If Trump wins the presidency, anyone still rotting in jail for merely showing up that day deserves not only a pardon, but an apology and payout from the Department of Justice.
With the GOP, nothing is ever certain. Will they win in 2022 and 2024? They should, but should and will are two different beasts. One thing is for certain, though, promises to free wrongly jailed political prisoners is a great starting point.
