New in PJ Media:
It has been a long time coming, and now the final act appears to be in view. Donald Trump is about to be arrested, and the corrupt and politicized authorities who have brought matters to this point are preparing for the worst: the NYPD, the Secret Service, and even the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force are all busy making preparations for the big day, which indicates several things about what will happen and what they expect will happen, or want us to think they expect will happen.
NBC News reported Friday that “local, state and federal law enforcement and security agencies are preparing for the possibility that former President Donald Trump is indicted as early as next week, according to five senior officials familiar with the preparations.” All this talk among security agencies centers around security preparations at Manhattan Criminal Court, where Trump will face charges over alleged hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.
This suggests that Trump will not just be arrested, but handcuffed and perp-walked for maximum media effect. That’s not really surprising, given that the arrest and the entire investigation of the alleged payments are designed to hurt Trump’s chances for 2024 or disqualify him entirely from running. When the charges are a political show, it’s no surprise that the arrest would be a media show. And so all these security agencies have to be involved, if only to keep the sheer mass of reporters from crushing Trump and the corrupt cops who will be arresting him.
“The agencies involved,” says NBC, “include the NYPD, New York State Court Officers, the U.S. Secret Service, the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, the officials said.” This reveals the other aspect of what the officials who are engineering all this are thinking. The Joint Terrorism Task Force? Do they think that Trump has some army of partisans that is going to open fire when they see their hero being led off in handcuffs?
They may well think that, or want us to believe that they think that. After all, the officials who are investigating Trump for a seven-year-old hush money allegation are the friends and allies of those who have been pushing the Jan. 6 “insurrection” hoax on the American people for two years now, as well as fervent supporters of the president who said that “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”
