In a move that will potentially forever alter the foundation of America, President Donald J. Trump was indicted on Thursday evening by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

I’m going to state what I believe is obvious based on the flimsy, at best, case Bragg has against the 45th President of the United States of America.

They’re wanting to charge and arrest President Trump because they cannot beat him. And they know it.

And they cannot cheat on the scale they will have to in order to pull it off (like they did in 2020) because people are paying attention.

Heck, anyone who was paying attention in 2020 knows they didn’t really pull it off in 2020, they simply got away with it because it had never been done before.

Even if you’re not comfortable calling 2020 stolen or rigged, we know election laws were broken in certain states. So, at the very least, in some states, we can refer to the 2020 election as illegal. And no, Americans should never accept the results of an illegal election.

Listen, going back to 2015 and early 2016, I wasn’t a big Trump guy. But this indictment only makes conservatives and Republicans more likely to vote for Trump — not less likely.

Clearly the “system” does not want Trump to be able to run for President, let alone be President. There’s a reason for that. And it isn’t by accident.

One of the guests on Tucker Carlson’s show Thursday night — I believe it was Glenn Beck — made a good point. It is no longer about Donald Trump the person, it’s about the movement and the people that Donald Trump represents.

I believed for a long time Jan. 6 was a setup by the government (I won’t even say the Democrats because I believe a certain wing of the Republican Party was in on it) in an effort to keep Trump from running in 2024.

That didn’t work.

The impeachment of President Trump was intended to keep him from running in 2024.

That didn’t work.

And I don’t buy for a second the “electability” argument against Trump. That Republicans shouldn’t support Trump because he “can’t win.” If that were true, why would the people who are our political opponents be so hellbent on trying to prevent Trump from running?

If he has no chance to win the election, wouldn’t they want him to be the nominee?

If you could pick your opponent in anything, wouldn’t you always pick the person you are most likely to beat?

But that’s not what they are doing in this situation.

Call it a conspiracy. Call it far-fetched. But I’m not quite sure what other conclusion there is to reach.

I don’t think this indictment is going to result in what the establishment hopes it results in.

This will only fire up Trump’s base. And it — more than anything else — has the potential to win some of the support from moderate Republicans who Trump has lost.

We will see what happens, but we can’t see this hurting Trump. If anything, this will serve as a rallying cry for Republicans around Trump.

It may result in Trump even receiving sympathy from people who do not want to feel that for him.

Iowans need to fulfill their duty of “going first” in the presidential primary process. We need to listen to each of those Republicans wanting to become the leader of the free world.

More than anything, what this indictment shows us is this — whoever is the Republican nominee (let’s be honest, it’s either going to be Trump or Ron DeSantis) — Americans must coalesce behind that candidate.

And yes — I said Americans — not Republicans, not conservatives…Americans.

Because this indictment is an affront to American justice and America. We cannot function with a government that tries to put its political opponents in jail.

And that is exactly what the establishment is doing.

And do not forget, they’re doing it because they know they cannot beat him.
