Trump’s Conviction: A Nation’s Call to Action

ED: From a mate in California who told me that a whip around at his local VFW raised $3225 donation for Trump Campaign

In a historic and unprecedented event, former US President Donald Trump has been found guilty on all counts in a landmark criminal trial. This marks the first time in history that a former or sitting president has been convicted of a crime, sending shockwaves through the nation. While reactions varied significantly across the political spectrum, conservatives have been particularly vocal in expressing their outrage and solidarity with Trump.

Trump faced 34 counts of falsifying business records, a charge that the prosecution claimed was part of an illegal conspiracy to undermine the 2016 presidential election. This included allegations of concealing a hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels. However, the defence was hindered by a lack of a robust counter-narrative.

The conviction, a significant and unprecedented development, saw each juror confirm their decision to convict Trump. In a dramatic moment, Trump turned to face each juror as they delivered their verdict.

Trump has accused Judge Juan Merchan of “not requiring a unanimous decision” on the charges, a claim that has resonated with many of his supporters. While this accusation is somewhat misleading—since the jury must unanimously agree that certain “unlawful means” were used—it has fuelled the belief among many conservatives that the trial was unfair.

The timing of the July 11th sentencing, just days before the Republican National Convention on July 15th, has raised suspicions of political motivation. Many argue that this timing is strategically aimed at damaging Trump’s reputation and hindering his potential 2024 presidential run.

Supporters of Trump also point out that while individuals like Hunter Biden and those involved in the Jeffrey Epstein case remain unscathed, Trump is being targeted for actions they see as comparatively minor. This perceived double standard has only strengthened their resolve.

Despite the celebratory reactions from left-leaning commentators and some segments of the public, Trump’s support base has shown a remarkable surge in solidarity. The Trump campaign’s donation site crashed shortly after the verdict, indicating a groundswell of financial and moral support. Contrary to claims by commentators like Rachel Maddow that the verdict would dissuade undecided voters and benefit President Biden, many believe this event will galvanize Trump’s base and increase his chances in the next election.

While Trump’s conviction has indeed shaken the nation, it has also ignited a fervent response from his supporters. They view this as a politically motivated attack and are more determined than ever to support him. The coming months will undoubtedly see this issue play a significant role in the political landscape as the nation heads towards the next election cycle.

    Commit the crime, do the time. This New York mob boss has escaped the criminal justice system for decades and is finally being held to account. His ignorance and hubris led to hundreds of thousands of Covid deaths and warrants indictment on charges of negligent homicide. Furthermore, his rejection of election results (begun before the election) and incitement to invade Congress makes him a domestic terrorist. No one person has done more to undermine democracy and the rule of law.
