Americans Demand Accountability

American Eagle

The coming months will be some of the most trying in our nation’s history as the 2024 election season heats up. With breaking news this week that the two leading 2024 presidential candidates have agreed to debate each other at least twice, one thing is certain: The 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, will finally get a chance to confront his accuser. He might ask whether all those indictments brought by his successor’s partisan hacks mean he’s really a threat to America or…just Joe Biden.

The last thing the current President wants is to let his record speak for itself. His open borders policy has ushered 7 million, and counting, illegal aliens into the country he is sworn to protect. The felons who have entered under his watch have contributed to the soaring crime rates in virtually every major city. Inflation continues to surge to historic levels and American families feel it every day at the grocery store and the gas pump. The White House’s climate change agenda and other boutique policies are crushing American industry while boosting China’s economy.

And it’s bad abroad, too. The administration continues to fund an endless and unwinnable war on the borders of nuclear-armed Russia. America’s trillion-dollar Navy can’t or won’t stop Iranian-backed Houthi rebels from threatening shipping lanes in the Red Sea. And U.S. allies in the Middle East and elsewhere reconsider their commitments, and loyalties, as they watch the White House betray longtime regional partner Israel to support a murderous Palestinian terror organization.

Everyone can see America, and the world, was better off when Trump was in charge. It seems Biden’s only play is to paint Trump as public enemy number one. With CNN hosting the first debate on June 27 and ABC hosting the rematch on September 10, it is doubtless the moderators will help flesh out the false narrative, cribbing lines from Trump’s torturers — Jack Smith, Fani Willis, and Alvin Bragg — anything to prop up the increasingly feeble incumbent.

Trump could play it for laughs if he likes and wear a black cape, top hat, and a fake mustache like a silent movie villain. But the opposition leader knows there’s nothing funny about what’s happened to our country in the last four years. He wears the scars to show what happens when the ruling party weaponizes the justice system to turn our constitutional republic into a banana republic. Sure, Trump is one of the most entertaining and engaging speakers in our long history, but he’ll be playing for keeps.

It’s a matter of life and death for our country. So, what we’ll be watching is a real-time enactment of America at the crossroads. The Biden administration has pushed us to the edge of the abyss — are we going to go over the edge and fall through space until we hit rock bottom? Or are Americans going to choose to join forces and put an end to this death spiral? Do we choose national suicide or a revival of American greatness? It’s rally time Patriots. We were meant for this time. It’s our time to fight for America’s future.
