Judges, Prosecutors Terrified of Vengeful Dictator Trump

Why would other judges indefinitely delay criminal cases against Donald Trump, or suddenly postpone his sentencing following his conviction by a jury of his peers, with the full consent of the prosecution?

I want to propose an outrageous etiology: fear. They are all terrified of Donald Trump who promised to seek revenge once elected to the highest office in the land.

In the wake of Trump’s debate with the sitting President, Biden, everyone is coming to grips with the realization of a second Trump presidency and the ineluctable transition to a dictatorship, possibly a dynastic one.

The 2024 presidential elections in the USA are going to be the last free and fair ones. Even if Trump were to lose the popular vote (the way he did to Hillary Clinton), his armed militias will take to the streets and to the Congress and this time, the insurrectionists will make sure they successfully “obstruct official proceedings”. Blood will be spilled.

Never mind who wins the elections, Trump would end up in the White House. There is no force left that can or dares oppose him.

About half the electorate – the Republicans – do not regard such an outcome with dread. They perceive democracy as a ruse of the progressive-liberal coastal elites and the Democratic Party as a bunch authoritarian, godless traitors.

The gulf between the two camps is unbridgeable as they fiercely and violently differ on all issues, from family values to immigration and from the role of the Federal Government to America’s place in a globalizing world.

A one-party alternative – with the Democrats gone and their leaders incarcerated – seems very appealing now. Hence the ubiquitous popularity of the likes of Orban, Netanyahu, and Putin, role models among the rank and file as well as the leadership of the GOP.
