President Donald Trump sure can spin some whoppers, eh?
All that talk about the so-called deep state spying on him and working together to fabricate a false narrative about his alleged criminal activities.
As if the most prominent members of the previous administration all were engaged in some kind of conspiracy: first to keep him from getting elected, then to keep him from taking office, then to have him removed from office, and finally to keep him from accomplishing anything in office.
The ultimate goal of this fanciful conspiracy, supposedly, was to cover up its own crimes, which Trump had threatened to expose during his campaign. Failing that, a last resort would be to muddy the water, project their own vices onto Trump, and create the impression that he’s just as dirty as they are. Stalemate.
What a theory.
It sounds like something Ron Duebbert would come up with, expecting the gullible citizens of St. Clair County to believe that many of our politicians, judges, and law enforcement officials are utterly corrupt.
Wait a minute. That’s not hard to believe at all. In fact, it’s hard not to believe.
As a matter of fact, when he ran as a Republican for circuit court judge against the election-rules-bending Democrat incumbent John Baricevic, Duebbert did make an issue of illegal drug activity of local public officials and officers of the court - including judges - which Baricevic tried to downplay.
And so the frame-up of Duebbert began – to keep him from getting elected, to keep him from taking office, to have him removed from office, and to keep him from accomplishing anything in office.
So far, the plan has worked, here as it has in Washington. But the whole thing is starting to unravel in both places, and it’s beginning to look like Trump and Duebbert both will be vindicated in the end. The false narratives will be proven wrong, the true stories will be told, and real criminals will be held accountable.
