The campaign by Donald Trump to return to his occupation of the White House is on a runaway track toward tormented dementia. With each new public appearance or posting on his pitifully failing social media scam, Truth Social, he affirms the depths of his psychosis. He’s in a downward spiral and headed for a crash landing.
On Saturday Trump attended the Republican party’s ironically named “Freedom Summit” at the equally ironically named Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Florida. The affair featured several of the candidates for the GOP nomination for president, but like a right-wing rock concert, saved the headliner spot for Trump, who spoke last. And true to form, Trump delivered a depressing and dangerously inflammatory diatribe that only an indoctrinated cult disciple, or a Republican (but I repeat myself), could appreciate.
The subjects that Trump covered were typical of his tediously repetitive sermonizing. Of course he attacked President Biden as both “Sleepy” and “Crooked,” apparently unable to keep track of which epithets he’s using today. But more troubling were his promises of what he planned to do should he be reelected next year. And the first thing on his agenda is – in his own words – retribution for the perceived persecutions he believes that he is the victim of. And the persecutor he is most fixated on is, naturally, President Biden, whose election he still denies was legitimate. So Trump raged that…
“Everything is a lie. The whole thing is a lie. The whole election was a lie. As president I will be creating a “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” to shed sunlight on every dark and rotten corner of Washington, D.C., starting with Biden.”

“Truth” and “reconciliation” are two of the English language words that are least likely to be associated with Trump, who is known for his pathological lying and vengefulness. But what Trump is announcing here is his plan to abuse the power of the presidency to persecute Biden for the crime of having beaten him so decisively in 2020.
Trump went on to boast that he had already engaged in similar abuses of power when he fired FBI Director James Comey and other FBI officials in a blatant attempt to evade the legal consequences of his criminal behavior. Trump bragged that…
“You gotta understand, we were doing a job. I got rid of Comey. I got rid of the FBI top guys. I got rid of them of all. Boy oh boy. If I didn’t, I probably wouldn’t be standing here talking to you, because that was a bad thing they were planning. […] There were bad things planned. And we learned all about them because that was like throwing a rock into a hornet’s nest when I fired that guy.”

To be clear, Trump is publicly confessing to obstruction of justice by terminating law enforcement officials who were investigating his misconduct. Although his pride in having tainted the legal auspices of the executive branch of government is wildly misplaced. He is still going to be held accountable as result of the four pending indictments against him for 91 felony charges – so far.
However, Trump still wasn’t finished incriminating himself. He elaborated on his intentions to pervert justice with a promise to clean house at the Department of Justice and to launch self-serving probes into the federal and state attorneys who are currently prosecuting him. He’s blaming them for his legal problems, despite the fact that they are only prosecuting him for crimes that citizens on grand juries indicted him for. He lashed out saying that…
“We will together restore law and order in our country. We will completely overhaul the DOJ to investigate every Marxist prosecutor in America for their illegal racist-in-the-reverse enforcement of the law.”

Note that three of the prosecutors working on Trump’s cases (Letitia James, Fani Willis, and Alvin Bragg) are Black. So naturally Trump regards this as a racial assault on his superior and unassailable whiteness. He would like nothing more than to be the instigator of a race war in America. In fact, he has an explicit plan to incite hostility and division among the American people. The Washington Post reported on this plan writing that…
“Donald Trump and his allies have begun mapping out specific plans for using the federal government to punish critics and opponents should he win a second term, with the former president naming individuals he wants to investigate or prosecute and his associates drafting plans to potentially invoke the Insurrection Act on his first day in office to allow him to deploy the military against civil demonstrations.”
So Trump is pledging to weaponize both the Justice and Defense Departments against his perceived enemies and, ultimately, all of the American people. Rest assured that he won’t stop there either. He would use the departments of State, Energy, Education, Treasury, Homeland Security, and even Agriculture if he can think of a way. His sole purpose is to exalt himself and reign unchallenged as a tyrannical monarch. And in the process, make those who stood in his way pay for their disloyalty. What’s more, Trump would form alliances with his heroes, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, and Xi Jinping. And he would sell American interests to the highest bidders.
Make no mistake, these are his ambitions. In speeches like the one he gave on Saturday he is telling the world right out loud what he intends to do. And if the American people hope to avoid this nightmare they should listen to him, and vote for every Democrat up and down the ballot, if they hope to preserve democracy and the future of this country. Because that is what’s at stake.
