The GOP Response to President Trump’s Arrest is Too Wimpy

What word would you use to describe the GOP’s collective response to the unprecedented political arrest of President Donald J. Trump? Wimpy? Limp-wristed? Flaccid? Weak? That disconnect between the GOP and Trump’s voters is exactly why the president polled 80% over Ron DeSantis’s 14% in a recent Florida poll. They either need to get with the program and start fighting back, or they will be left in the dust of the MAGA movement.

Most high-profile Republicans have hit the same talking points, but that’s all they’re doing. You could probably recite many of those talking points by now: Political prosecution, hypocrisy, yadda yadda yadda. RNC chair Ronna McDaniel has them memorized.

 

Rep. Jim Jordan, who I like and respect, has been slow walking the House Judiciary Committee’s response for fundraising purposes. I’m sorry to say it, but that’s what he’s doing.

First, Jordan asked former Manhattan prosecutor Mark Pomerantz – who was one of Crooked Hillary Clinton’s lawyers – to come sit for a deposition. Pomerantz was the guy who quit in a hissy fit when Alvin Bragg was first elected. Bragg declared that there was “no case” that Pomerantz had developed over 18 months on the Stormy Daniels idiocy.

Pomerantz walked off the job and then wrote a book about it. In the book, he states that the investigation “developed evidence convincing us that Donald Trump had committed serious crimes.”

Alvin Bragg didn’t seem to think so when he first came on the job. Anyway, Jordan called Pomerantz to come sit for a deposition, he refused. Next, Jordan subpoenas Pomerantz. Alvin Bragg tried to sue the Judiciary Committee to stop Pomerantz from testifying. The judge will rule on that case on April 19th but has already ripped Bragg a new one for the weakness of his filing to block the subpoena.

Republicans are engaging in some kind of weird, sissy slap-fight in the courts while sending out fundraising letters about how they’re “fighting back” against the Democrats. No, you’re not, guys. You’re really not.

Why did Jordan wait to subpoena Pomerantz? For that matter, why doesn’t Jordan just subpoena Alvin Bragg right now? Haul his corpulent frame into the Judiciary Committee, put him under oath in a public hearing, and remind him that he’s under oath before every question.

Then, pull a bunch of White House staffers in with subpoenas, or at least try to. Ask them what contact the Biden White House has had with Alvin Bragg’s office. If Biden exerts executive privilege over their testimony, then blast it from the rooftops:

The Biden White House was directly involved in this fake prosecution over the Stormy Daniels payment. Therefore, we’re impeaching Joe Biden.

And then do it! Who cares if the Senate won’t convict Biden. We control the House and it’s time for Republicans to start acting like it. The Democrat Party doesn’t get to “lawfare” us to death before the 2024 election.

Letitia James, the other lunatic prosecutor in New York, just had Donald Trump sit down for another seven-hour deposition. How many hours has any Democrat been forced to sit there and answer questions about their plans to “get Trump?” Oh, right. Zero. Because the GOP never fights back. We issue lame subpoenas to people way down on the totem pole, while the Democrats have SWAT teams showing up at our homes for silently praying while 1,000 yards away from an abortion clinic.

Does Jim Jordan understand what happens next if the Democrats are allowed to successfully prosecute President Trump? Does Kevin McCarthy or Mitch McConnell understand? Republicans always seem to come to the correct conclusion on how to deal with any issue exactly five seconds after it no longer matters.

The Democrat Party would be perfectly happy if no more Republicans exist. And it’s not just the leaders. It’s the rank and file, everyday Democrat voters too. Remember your liberal Aunt Sally who wouldn’t let you in her house unless you wore a mask during COVID? She’d totally put you in a concentration camp “for your own good” if the Democrats asked them to start turning people in.

Republicans are going to have to start doing things that make them very uncomfortable if we’re going to get through this. We can’t play by the same rules that we’re used to, because those rules no longer apply. If you’re still wringing your hands and worrying about “norms” and “traditions” and “fair play” and thinking, “It could never happen here,” then you need to get out of our way.

    1. get rid of Ronna McDonald. Maybe she is too much like her Rino uncle – Mitt Romney who is nothing but a sore loser like Hillary Clinton

  1. I find the reply should be he is not above the law and the GOP needs to step off with protecting this criminal where they turned their backs on the rule of law that he broke for years. We don’t need him back in office and was a disgrace when in the office. I am a republican but vote what is good for the country not the the person or group

    1. Do you really like 5+ dollar a gallon gas, our FREEDOMS being stripped away, high prices in the grocery store, open southern border?…..I could go on and on…..Everything was better when President Trump was in office……MAGA, AMERICA FIRST, BEST PRESIDENT EVER

    2. If the majority of Republicans INSIST on continuing their BLIND allegiance to this LOSER, THEY will ALL be responsible for the butt kicking we are going to get AGAIN. Trumps glory days are OVER. A vote for him may as well be a vote for Biden.

      1. Joey and his regime are the LOSERS! Joey has two functioning brain cells which is more than anyone who votes and supports his communist views. If you hate America so much, Cuba has plenty of room since those who share different views become fish food.

    3. In other words, you are 100% ok with Obama and Joey also being incarcerated for the many crimes they have committed? Hillary and Bill should be in the cell next to them. Hypocrisy is committed by your party but is ignored. Time for you all to pay up.

    4. Seriously, look at the facts about how things worked under Trump versus how they are now. Yes, Trump’s personality and comments can be abrasive and I wish sometimes he would shut up. But, he was a strong leader FOR AMERICA. Biden on the other hand is probably the weakest and dumbest president this country has ever had. He is selling the soul of America to the Globalists and destroying the middle class, all which weakens our country and will allow WEF/CCP etc to suck us into their power web. This is exactly why the Globalists want to “Get Trump” as they cannot control him and it runs counter to their agendas.

      If you like to lose most of your freedom (whether right or left), you like to take from those who worked hard and give to those too lazy to work, if you want immorality and perversion and deceptions, vote LEFT. If you want a better life for your grandchildren, Trump has actually done a lot of good.

  2. They aren’t fighting because they don’t really want Trump back in office any more than the Democrats do. If it was someone they ‘have more love for” they probably would. They just don’t want us to know they’re all part of the same damn swamp and they’re starting to show their true colors. I’m disgusted with all of them!!

    1. You are right on the money! President trump scared the living hell out of all them career politicians with his idea of draining the swamp!!

  3. From my flyover perspective, big media has almost totally silenced those of us who merely read the news but have no voice in it. Democrat-socialists have pushed their agenda by controlling almost all big media outlets and banished conservative comments.

    Conservatives can be pushed too far and nobody can predict their ultimate reaction. I believe unheard conservatives are reaching a limit on the border. It could become a hot war zone if Title 42 ends and a hundred nations rush the border demanding entry and access to free stuff.

    They’re also reaching a limit on how far they’ll allow our leftist judiciary to push them with oppressive verdicts, e.g., Trump’s alleged 34 felonies. In the sparse bits of news we’re allowed to see, I believe citizens are reaching a limit on their ability to remain peaceful.

    The point is, I believe conservatives are on the brink of rebellion. We haven’t seen such anger since1775. The ability to make their voices heard has been oppressed without violence beyond conservative patience. Hopefully, we’ll see conservative principles restored before we see another revolution.

  4. Trump had everything running smoothly. An old expression is, “SH– OR GET OFF THE POT!” Another point the Dems r more closely related to Communists, Socialists and Progressives. All r detrimental to a free country. I will not cow tow to such EVIL. Republicans must FIGHT with their fists not powder puffs. MAGA forever!!

    1. Actually I’d say it’s probably good that we bought all those guns after what they did to us during and after the Covid pandemic. We’ll be ready when they start that crap again and we’ll recognize the symptoms when it’s arrived. Rebellion that is!

  5. Read Washington’s farewell address upon his retirement. He warns of the danger of political parties accumulating power. The primary purpose of a party is to gain power by obligating candidates loyalty to party over country. The primary purpose of a citizen is to control the candidate. There lies the conflict.

  6. The real danger of Americas REPUBLIC is…………………..RINO Republicans. Mitch McConnell, Lindsley of South Carolina ,John Coryn (tx) Romney, Barrasso, Susan Collins (Maine),Murkowski (Alaska)

    1. Yep. They all need to go. Plus some! We should have let McConnell sink when he was drowning during his last reelection. Unfortunately he acts like he’s everybody’s best friend when he needs something. Fooled too many into supporting him and too many into voting for him. The jackass!

  7. The Republican party should be ashamed of it self for not supporting a fellow member of the party. Each of them must show up on the Sunday morning talk shows , with a list of talking points,provided by the party, just like the democrats do. They should be prepared to support Trump. Speaking as one voice is very, very powerful. If they don’t they should be voted out of the party and not provided any reelection support.

  8. The Republicans really need to shit or get off the pot. If they keep at the pace they are, nothing will get done. Biden really needs to be removed from office and about two thirds of his administration. They’re wrecking our once great nation. Term limits need to be enforced to get some of the fossils out and young new blood in. We’re on the brink of WW3 with Russia and China, a war in which we will most definitely be defeated. Does the average Joe speak their languages? NO, and I don’t want to, either. GOD SAVE US. TRUMP 2024.
