Today’s WYNK. Today’s what you need to know is killing Trump. Quote killing Trump now End Quote.
Remember Bill O’Reilly had a series of books called Killing Patton and Killing Kennedy and they were really interesting books to read. There was a lot of reasons they were interesting. One of them was the writing and the writing was I I talked to Martin Dugard, who is the co-author with Bill O’Reilly of those books. And he told me O’Reilly was a co-author. It wasn’t just one of these deals where he was writing it O’Reilly, in fact, he said. O’Reilly was a really into the research. He and they, they would do lots of research together and it was a it was a pretty interesting undertakings, according to Martin Dugard.
But here’s what I wanted to tell you about that the one of the reasons those books were so good is Martin Dugard had picked up a writing style. He told me in an interview on this program from James Patterson. With with whom he wrote early in his career and it was very short chapters. And and then it sort of moved along quickly and it’s the first time I really saw in a history kind of context, a history book that kind of writing. And it’s very, very effective and so, but the phrase Killing Kennedy, Killing Patton really got popularized by O’Reilly and his program. And my point in saying Killing Trump is to be a little bit dramatic. But I what I want to Say is, do you realize, and I I only figured this out last night.
I was reading on breitbart.com part of the follow up to my interview with Neil Munro, the breitbart.com journalist. His very interesting interview he and I did about Vivek and and about the TPP, the Trans Pacific Partnership. One of these multilateral trade deals that Trump got us out of. And and that somehow the Democrats and the Rinos wanna put us in, they work together to gut American jobs and and destroy American business markets. But anyway, be that as it may, I’m reading Neil Munro. I’m on breitbart.com hadn’t been there in a couple of days and I get pulled into a Joel Pollak story in which Joel describes and so I give him credit For pointing me to this that one of the four charges. That is, in the new indictment, the Jack Smith indictment of Donald Trump, the federal charges, one of those charges can have as the penalty Execution if in fact I think it’s the defraud, it’s the counter defrauding the United. States, and if you’re. Maybe one of the others I could be misstating it. I’m sorry I didn’t print it out to to look at, but Joe Pollak look closely and Joe Pollak’s an attorney. If you didn’t know that, he’s a journalist. But he’s got a background in law too, and Joel wrote. And and looked into this if the crime. Ends up causing death. You can be. Penalized the penalty can be capital punishment, the death penalty. So in other words, if you make the argument that that somehow you you defrauded America, therefore the United States, and it led to a death, a death. Then you could be executed for it, meaning Ashli Babbitt. Or even, I think a couple of days later you could say if somebody died of the of the stress, I think you might make the argument, I don’t know.
But the point here is it’s all the way on the table. I mean the the Trump derangement syndrome at this point has gone all the way to the point they actually have charged him with something that could lead to his execution.
Now that sounds like I’m being dramatic, but that’s actually what was pled. And prosecutors, federal prosecutors have a ton of power. They have a ton of of of weight and they have the ability to charge what they want To charge, it’s one of the reasons That in the January 6 cases, they added that felony charge obstruction of official proceeding because once you add that and you have that prospect, it’s a felony, 20 years if you’re a guy that walks through the building and you’re trespassing and that’s a misdemeanor, no jail time, $500 fine, something like that. And you get added 20 years, you’re going to Plead differently. You’re going to act Differently, that’s the. That’s the thing about this.
The Trump indictment, besides going way too far. It is clearly. A an effort. To moderate behavior. Now you can say hey, Ed isn’t all law. You know, all the laws we pass. Isn’t that in some sense a an effort to moderate behavior? You know, that’s probably right. I mean, we could have a longer conversation about the, the nature of law and the nature of rules.
But when you have a criminal indictment by the special counsel. Specifically appointed by Joe Biden’s Attorney General for this, and it includes a charge that gets you to the death penalty and it’s your opponent, Donald Trump. It’s pretty stunning, isn’t it? I mean, that’s pretty darn amazing to think about. I I I don’t know how to think sort of clearly about what that means, and imagine if you’re Trump and you’re saying to yourself, OK, OK, the, the, the media vilifies me and they lie about me and they destroy what I do. And then sometimes I do things that rub people wrong but in general. I’m just, you know, participating in America. And they’ve got you charged made-up. And charged. With for for a a thought crime, they say in the in the in the indictment they basically are. And I heard this phrase used mind reading. You have to mind read and say well, Trump knew the election was totally successful and fine. He just went against it because he’s that crazy. He’s that he’s that much of a crazy. And and that duplicitous, not crazy, that duplicitous, that that that power hungry. They have to read his mind. And and you know. The only person I’ve seen, the one person is this 22 year old aide who said she overheard Trump saying to someone else. I can’t believe I lost to that guy. We can’t. We can’t let people think I lost to. That guy or. Something like that, you know? And so that’s an indication of his mindset? And so you’re going to get the death penalty. In America, you’re gonna get you’re gonna charge someone a political opponent with the death penalty. For for thinking the wrong thing and and failing to do something about what you think. What, what what you thought about.
In other words, Donald Trump had bad thoughts. The election was he actually lost the election, and but that those bad like he didn’t just bury that, and he pretended that he didn’t lose it because he was trying to grab power. But he didn’t grab power, so he’s being charged with being unsuccessful. At something, but based on the reading of his mind, that’s what we’re seeing happening. That’s what’s happening in America. And it’s way past, killing Trump is way past what Americans will accept and should accept. And frankly, if they get away with it, that that’s a much bigger problem.
In some ways, this is a wonderfully clarifying thing. I think for a lot of Americans to say, wait a second, wait a second, Beat the guy. If you want, call him names if you want but, but putting him in the in jail for something like this and also. The death penalty? Remember, sometimes it’s how people feel about something that they hear, right? They don’t. They don’t even necessarily know what’s going on. But and and and you know, frankly maybe half the country never will hear what the real charges are and the real penalties or anything else that’s part of the trick that’s going on. It’s so, so, so duplicitous. But if people if this country I’ll, I’ll say this way.
As this country realizes that that’s what they’ve done. You are going to see. A reaction. I I do not think that the American people will tolerate this. They will not tolerate this. As something that we do in America, there’s just no way that they’ll tolerate it. And so you mark my words, I talk about it now and I give Joe again, Joe Pollak deserves credit for it. Killing Trump an assassination attempt of a political rival. Not OK in America, not OK in America.
There’s no way we’ll still let that stand. We can’t. We can’t.
So watch for that and watch for that language. I don’t know, killing Trump. That’s me being dramatic. But I think the death penalty Joe Pollak writing about the death penalty, the only one I saw and how that connects. I I guarantee you you’re gonna see that creep into the media, creep into some of the left will, will, will gloat about it. They want it. Some on the left will be, CNN will be embarrassed and they’ll try. To hide it but I. Think you’ll see it getting out into the mainstream. And that will change things even one more time.
