The Phyllis Schlafly Report
By John and Andy Schlafly
After throwing the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden by suppressing the damaging truth about him on social media, the deceitful Deep State is going all-out to prevent Donald Trump from winning in 2024. On Monday the Trump-hating House Select Committee on January 6th announced a so-called “referral” of criminal charges against Trump relating to a day that most Americans have long since forgotten.
The driving force behind the “referral” was the sanctimonious Jamie Raskin (D-MD), whose own teacher, Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, called him out for conducting an unconstitutional witch-hunt. Congress’s job is to legislate, Dershowitz pointed out, and the House has no authority to recommend criminal charges against anyone.
Another law professor, Jonathan Turley, quipped that this tiresome House committee is like “a group of actors that refuse to leave the stage.” Turley patiently explained that the absurd accusation that Trump “incited insurrection” on January 6th was firmly rejected by the Supreme Court 53 years ago in a unanimous decision that has never been questioned.
Trump was unfazed by the two-bit political actors who linger on their anti-Trump stage before being dispersed by the incoming House GOP majority in two weeks. “These folks don’t get it that when they come after me, people who love freedom rally around me. It strengthens me,” Trump responded Monday on Truth Social.
“Unfit for any office,” blustered the Wyoming-rejected Liz Cheney, using invective that should be applied to herself rather than Trump. She was humiliated by her own constituents in her landslide primary defeat last August, and embarrassed herself further by supporting these meaningless criminal referrals.
The committee’s referrals would go to Jack Smith, the special counsel named to take charge of the politicized investigations into Trump but who has never appeared in public since his appointment. He reminds movie buffs of the “George Kaplan” in Alfred Hitchcock’s Cold War thriller North by Northwest, in which a U.S. intelligence agency created a non-existent decoy to divert attention from its real double agent.
The phenomenal Julie Kelly of the American Greatness website exposed how the Attorney General pretended to turn over the Trump investigation to a special counsel to shift attention from the Democratic hacks who are really running it. More than a month later, Jack Smith has never reported here for duty, as far as we know, and may still be in Europe recovering from a bicycle accident and knee surgery.
Merrick Garland’s announcement that Jack Smith was taking over the investigation was a public relations stunt, designed to pretend that there would be independent oversight of the investigation of the leading Republican candidate for president. In the absence of meaningful supervision, the DOJ recently served subpoenas on officials in all seven battleground states where Trump supporters properly questioned the election results.
CNN reports that 20 prosecutors within the DOJ have been assigned to investigate January 6. That’s a larger team of prosecutors than is used for real crimes, and if the mysterious Jack Smith is really in charge, then he is not reining them in.
Democrats on Capitol Hill are using the DOJ as their club to intimidate Republicans. More victims of the out-of-control J6 Committee are expected to be announced in its final written report to be issued on Wednesday, and already Trump’s attorney John Eastman has been targeted by it.
Meanwhile, the Deep State has once again prevented the release of evidence documenting the CIA’s complicity in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy almost 60 years ago. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., recently stated that the “CIA’s murder of my uncle was a successful coup d’état from which our democracy has never recovered.”
None of the JFK-related files were to be withheld from the public after October 2021. But Biden, who protects the Deep State while it covers up for him, released only a few innocuous records while concealing the most important documents.
Only 95% of the JFK documents have been entirely released to the public, as the Deep State hides its own misconduct by withholding the final 5%. In 1992, Congress required that all withheld documents about the JFK assassination be released to the public by October 26, 2017, except as ordered by the president.
Trump’s instincts were right when he promised to release all the JFK documents while he was president, but was reportedly talked out of it by his former CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Now Pompeo, backed by a web of dark money funding, is assembling the resources to challenge Trump’s reelection.
The next presidential election will be about reining in the Deep State, and Donald Trump is the only Republican willing and able to lead on that crucial issue. The first actions by the incoming GOP majority in the House in January should rescind everything the J6 Committee did.
