Donald Trump! I’m with you in America
where you’re draining the swamp more than I am

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where you must feel MAGAfied

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where you announce another a newer and more bigly morning

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where you’ve strangled the last progressive
with the entrails of the last liberal

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where you scoff at Democrats’ Trump Dementia

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where we are great citizens of the same Resurrected Republic

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where your sudden appearance on the Interstate
is reported with fear or joy on every website of the Internet

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where the Constitution is read aloud and squashes
the worms of the regressive oppressive progressives

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where we drink the fine summer Diet Cokes of Liberty

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where you midwife a new birth of freedom

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where your mere name makes progressives scream
in their straightjackets and fill up their drool cups to the slosh line

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where you announce the American soul is immortal
and has never yet melted

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where the traitors in the Congress are consumed
in a refining fire

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where the LORD will not suffer
the souls of the righteous to hunger

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where you will split the heavens above Washington
and resurrect the living human Jesus from the
secular tomb

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where there are three hundred million sane citizens
all together singing the final stanza
of The Battle Hymn of the Republic

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where we embrace the United States under
our flag, the stars of the United States that shine all
night and won’t let us sleep in our dream

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
where we wake up luminous and transformed from the coma
of socialism, our states’ stars beautiful
in spacious skies above our fruited plains,
as diamond-armored angelic guardians of the last best hope of Earth
O liberated legions run outside O starry
spangled shock of freedom the eternal war is
won O victory where the memory of the just is blessed:
but the name of the wicked shall rot

Donald Trump, I’m with you in America
in my visions you stride back from a seachange
on the highway across America glowing luminous
our founders’ vision confirmed by God’s holy angels
to the door of my bungalow in the Northwestern night

    Alea iacta est.

    For some time now, the increasingly relevant lyrics of an old Moody Blues song have been playing in the background of my consciousness:

    Listen to the tide slowly turning
    Wash all our heartaches away
    We are part of the fire that is burning
    And from the ashes we can build another day

    Stunning piece! Thank you.
    And good observation from captflee

    What will the Grand Old Politburo do about the New CPUSA or democrats?
    Remember, they didn’t want Trump the outsider and don’t mind any expansion of government or debt as long as the chamber of commerce golf course remains open.

    Trump can enthuse, encourage and spell out the truth so eloquently when he wants to, scripted or not. If only he stays off Social Media in future (or has his Tweets vetted before posting them), he’ll finish the job. (Just make sure cowardly Pence RINO types are not involved.)
    Good luck America, you’re going to need it!

      Mean tweets — versus — political raids a la Kristalnacht

      Gee, can’t decide. He did make some awful mean tweets, dint he?

      What is this? High school presidential politics?

      Trump can say any goddamned thing he likes – I am behind him with a flag and a gun and a bible.

      Here’s a mean tweet: suck my balls!

      • John the River August 9, 2022, 2:50 PM

        Trump can say any goddamned thing he likes – I am behind him with a flag and a gun and a bible.

        Damn Straight!
        That deserves to become a Meme… what to use as a background?

      • John the River August 10, 2022, 6:42 AM

        Follow up.
        I took your words and put an image I had of a Minuteman standing under a stormy sky behind it and posted on the Open Thread on Instapundit last night.

        And someone marked it as Spam to get rid of it. Been a while since anyone was that afraid of anything I’d posted.
        I’ll send a copy to Gerard.

        • KCK August 10, 2022, 8:12 AM

          Right on!

          This morning I was encouraged that Trump had 3 lawyers on scene at the raid. Now, I understand the FBI sequestered them and turned around the CCTV. My gut tells me: plant.

    I don’t mind his comments. Hells bells, he is only saying what most of us are thinking.

  • azlibertarian August 9, 2022, 10:52 AM

    If the Chamber of Commerce Republicans don’t recognize that Trump owns the heart and soul of conservative America, they’re fooling themselves. I’ve said before that I could entertain other choices, but this video tells me that Trump is running.

  • Hyland August 9, 2022, 11:21 AM

    It’s official… FJB has the attention span… the mental acuity of a gnat. Watch this…

    I rather like the idea of a Trump/DeSantis 2024 ticket; TWELVE GREAT YEARS!

    • Ootenvault August 9, 2022, 1:17 PM

      I love DeSantis also, but hope he is not on the ticket. Leave him in Florida or when Trump wins, bring him on as Attorney General. That’s where the snake bit Trump in the last go around. Love to see the great people surrounding DeSantis…

    • Stargazer August 9, 2022, 3:55 PM

      Per the Constitution…Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates cannot be from the same state.

      • jiminalaska August 9, 2022, 10:21 PM

        Re-read it, yes they can, but that state’s electoral vote is voided.

    If only our side could hate like the left, the communists do.

    Here’s the problem the right will win both chambers. And the fucking republicans will go brain dead instantly. Wanna tell us just how bitchen they are, how they kicked the Turtle poop out of the commies.

    It’s not the left or the right need changing. It’s the entire shit show, needing flushed like the giant turds both sides are.

    There is no difference left right, both meet in the middle.

    These mother fuckers need to go down for the hard count!

    What bothers me the most is this, in recent weeks some here have suggested that “ We” need to move forward, move thru it. Be the bigger person. Overlook the criminality of it all

    If that isn’t a progressive point of view, I’ll kiss the pope’s ass. Here’s the problem. WE as in US are a nation of laws. It is We The People who have given everything, every time.

    Without accountability now, we are no longer a nation, without accountability in the govt we the people are the problem. Yeah everybody got 7 or 10 grand, while Billions maybe trillions were printed, given, not loaned to corrupt companies.

    Have you ever asked yourself, where do these sums of money really go? I think the answers are right in front of us. The communistS print without intent to ever repay it. Ask yourself how or why would people give the vast amounts of money given to politics.

    The answer is when a company receives a billion dollars from the left, or the right it’s understood that 200 million goes to the political party, OUTSIDE, outside the party. This money was held and spent on political necessity, at the beckoning of either political party.

    Why else are there “Dark Money PACs, men with no names no addresses, who are account managers?

    How else can it work, the dollars simply don’t add up, think about it. Where one can purchase an ambassadorship to a country for an $100,000 dollar contribution. That’s chump change in the game of politics.

    Do not underestimate the evil in all the political parties. It’s not the congress, the house, or the president, running the world. Its men and women with no faces, whose names are never ever uttered publicly.

    These are some evil motherfuckers. They don’t deserve to breath the air god gave us all.

      You got that right, Dirk. Enjoy your filet.

    • KCK August 10, 2022, 8:14 AM

      Well said.

    I prefer “when the last banker is strangled with the entrails of the last government bureaucrat”, myself.

  • Brian S August 10, 2022, 6:07 AM

    Am I the only one that assumes the raid agents more than likely planted ‘bugs’ throughout before they left?

  • Christopher L Hunt August 11, 2022, 5:09 AM

    Did they leave the tape on the door locks sideways?

  • pbrd August 11, 2022, 5:56 PM

    Who could have known that hope would manifest as a blond fathead New Yorker! Its too good for Sandburg even!
    I loved it.

    So excited I couldn’t type my own nick right.
