Team America Standing Tall For Truth & Justice

Statue with Blindfold

At this stage, no one is surprised to discover that the judge in the case that Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis brought against Donald Trump donated to her political campaign. The ethical and honorable move would be for Judge Scott McAfee to recuse himself. But the current political winds aren’t blowing in that direction, not when Manhattan Judge Arthur Engoron imposed a $355 million penalty on Trump in the bogus case brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

That record number is designed to hamper the Republican presidential candidate’s campaign — but it also broadcasts a stark warning to the American public as well as those around the world who look to America as an example, as the shining city on the hill: The rule of law is dead. The justice system can’t be trusted to rule impartially. At present, the law is rather an instrument that the ruling party uses to crush its political opponents.

The corruption of our justice system is the harvest of Russiagate, the poisonous information operation that was weaponized to undermine the Trump administration by falsely alleging the 45th President of the United States was a Russian spy. What began as a dirty trick engineered by the 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign was taken over by Barack Obama during his remaining days in office to disrupt the peaceful transition of executive authority. Rather than honor the choice made by those who elected him president twice, Obama unlawfully tasked his spy chiefs to target Trump and his aides, including America’s Future Chairman, General Mike Flynn.

And wouldn’t you know it, Russiagate is back in yet another variation. As sure as mistletoe and eggnog signals Christmastime is upon us, when the Democrats and their allies in the Washington, D.C. press corps start in with “Russia Russia Russia,” it means election season is near.

Here’s how the latest iteration of the most poisonous conspiracy theory in U.S. history is playing out in 2024: Just as the Republicans’ push to impeach President Joe Biden was getting off the ground, last week, the Department of Justice (DOJ) indicted the informant who told the FBI about Joe and Hunter Biden’s financial arrangements with the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma. The DOJ says the informant Alexander Smirnov lied when he told the FBI that the Bidens demanded $5 million each to protect Burisma from domestic and international investigations.

This week, the Special Counsel investigating Hunter Biden filed court documents claiming that Smirnov’s account of the Biden family’s foreign corruption is sourced to Russian intelligence. Consequently, Democrats claimed Republican efforts to impeach Biden are based on — wait for it — Russian disinformation. Why, it looks like 2020 all over again, with 51 U.S. spies signing a letter that Hunter’s laptop was the same thing, Russian disinformation. And that was just a variation of the 2016 race when, according to the DOJ/FBI, Democrats, and the media, the Russians pushed “disinfo” into the public sphere to get Trump elected. It would all be laughable if it weren’t so deadly to the well-being of the Republic.

If we were to believe the Party of Obama and Biden, Moscow has had a hand in our last three presidential races — but the fact is otherwise. It’s the ruling party that continues to interfere in U.S. elections, using the resources of the federal government to rig elections — and peddle destructive, mind-altering lies to the American people.

We’re fighting for our country to restore not just the rule of law but also sanity. That means the way to fight the campaign of desecration and demoralization waged by the ruling class is to speak truth and speak it clearly. We won’t be panicked into lies or conspiracy theories — we know what’s true and real and beautiful, and we speak it with intellectual, emotional, and spiritual clarity. America is counting on us to be truthful and clear — and to lead. We were born for this time.
