Trump Embraces the Demos’ 2024 Indictment Strategy

Will the Demo calculation that they can rally enough “Hate Trump” voters ensure victory in the next presidential election?

You could make this stuff up, but nobody would believe you!

On the same day Donald Trump “surrendered” in New York to face indictment charges filed by Manhattan’s corrupt George Soros-backed district attorney, Alvin Bragg — charges for allegedly paying “hush money” to an “adult film” star, Stephanie Clifford, a.k.a. “Stormy Daniels” — the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Clifford must pay Trump $122,000 in legal fees for a failed defamation case she brought against him.

Seriously, that happened. No comment from her attorney, Demo darling Michael Avenatti — oh, wait; he’s in federal prison for extortion, fraud, embezzlement, and tax evasion.

Meanwhile, all the mass media churners were focussed on Trump yesterday as he arrived in New York on his Boeing 757 “Trump” jet, looking and acting very presidential. As anticipated, he pleaded not guilty to the 34 bogus Bragg charges in the indictment, and then he left town. You know, the “34 charges” CNN reported last week, meaning that the only felony charge at this point should be pinned on Bragg or one of his minions who leaked information about the Trump indictment to CNN.

Back at his Mar-a-Lago residence, Trump responded to the indictment, and his remarks both looked and sounded old-school MAGA Trump, the 2016 nominee against Hillary Clinton, presidential and defiant, focused on what Joe Biden has gotten wrong (everything), not a petulant fratricidal word, and rightly focused on the deep state attacks against his presidency. I outlined those attacks last week in “The Relentless Prosecutorial Persecution of Donald Trump.”

As a practice, I avoid the endless MSM talkinghead and scribe churn, recording only what I consider the best hour of cable news each evening, Bret Baier — and most of that hour can be reduced to 20 minutes of substantive content. But as I forward through “Special Report,” I always stop to hear anything Brit Hume has to say because he is the top wise and seasoned political journalist on the networks.

And typical of his astute analysis, when Baier asked him for comment about the indictment, Hume responded: “I think that everything that could be said about this has been said. I don’t want to repeat what everybody has said.” And what has been said is reverberations in a giant media echo chamber.

However, there is something more to say that nobody is saying … yet.

George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley, a Democrat, hinted at it this week: “The chaos that is erupting is pretty much the element for Donald Trump. It’s like trying to kill an orca by throwing him in the water. He’s obviously doing well in polls because Alvin Bragg just gave him a proof-positive that the criminal justice system is being politicized. … The question is why, why would Bragg work so hard to bring out this misdemeanor and try to turn it into a felony?” Turley added, “He fulfilled Trump’s narrative.”

I answered the question “why” earlier this week in “The Demos’ Real 2024 Trump Indictment Strategy.” As the dust settles around this indictment, the Democrats’ calculated strategy will become apparent.

Here is their calculation in short: Demo strategists estimate that the Bragg indictment and the coming Mar-a-Lago indictment will help ensure Trump will be the Republicans’ 2024 nominee. Trump’s Secret Service agents are scheduled to testify this week in the Mar-a-Lago case. And that Georgia election tampering case against Trump is also in the wings as part of the Demo strategy to boost Trump. They are certain that even Biden (if he was actually going to run, which I have declared he will not) could defeat Trump again. (This week Biden put of his announcement for six months.)

All the Left and Right media churn aside, including the insistence that Bragg just suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome, promoting Trump is the Demos’ real indictment strategy.

They know the Bragg case, combined with likely indictments related to the Mar-a-Lago classified docs case, can be dragged out through the 2024 election in support of this “divide and conquer” strategy. To be clear, the Mar-a-Lago case is differentiated from the Biden case because it is not about taking the documents, it’s about what Trump did with them once the return request had been issued.

They are working overtime on this strategy, with the objective of helping Trump eclipse other candidates they might have more trouble defeating, enabling him to suck all the air out of the room. They believe that if Trump is the nominee, they can, again, depend on an enormous “hate and fear” voter turnout, which, combined with their bulk-mail ballot fraud strategy, will succeed, as it did in 2020. And in 2024, Trump will be older than Ronald Reagan was when he left office.

Even if Trump is not the nominee, Demos want to keep his base supporters angry enough to give Trump the momentum to create irreparable fratricidal division in the primary in order to sufficiently fracture the GOP, thus paving a path for another Democrat victory. As was the case in 2016, Trump has already refused to back any other 2024 Republican nominee, so that fractured model is set.

Of course, keeping the sordid and salacious details of the Trump case front and center also divides faith-based voters, so publicizing these charges, regardless of the prosecutorial outcome, serves that objective.

Back to Turley’s “why” question and his assertion that Democrats are “fulfilling Trump’s narrative.”

Demo strategists know exactly what “fulfilling Trump’s narrative” means for enhancing their bid for victory in 2024. Unfortunately, even the most astute conservative political observers are still stuck in the trenches — yet to actually ponder the strategic question.

Short of some surprise lateral pass from the Bragg indictment, Trump will eventually be acquitted — a “victory” that furthers the Democrat strategy to keep him ahead of the primary pack and help ensure none of his opponents becomes the nominee, including Gov. Ron DeSantis, whom Demos fear.

Anyone who fails to acknowledge their strategy, or underestimates its calculated outcome, need only consider the outcomes of the 2020 election and how the 2022 midterm Republican “red wave” turned into an anemic “red ripple,” despite Biden’s abysmal approval polling.

Demos stopped a big Republican midterm sweep by continuing their 2020 strategy to “protect democracy” against Trump and his MAGA extremists. That midterm Trump factor was affirmed by a long list of conservative political analysts.

In 2016, Trump won the general election with 304 of the 538 electoral votes, despite the fact that Clinton won the popular vote by a 2.1% margin. That was a great victory for America! But he drags a lot more political baggage into the next election.

However, Democrats still have their successful 2020 bulk-mail ballot fraud machine intact, and the residual fear from the J6 “insurrection” will draw out even more low-info “Hate and Fear Trump” voters.

Will their strategy work in 2024?

Trump is embracing it, thinking they are wrong, even trying to get his next court appearance in December pushed further out into the primary season.

Republicans ignore it at their grave peril.
