    Trump at the Rubicon

    Trump at the Rubicon

    When Caesar's term as a provincial governor was ending he knew his political enemies would bury him in litigation and even try to kill him. So what did Caesar do? He violated Roman law and crossed the Rubicon with his legions.

    Alea iacta est,” said Caesar: The die is cast. The rest is history. Until 2020.

    Trump faces litigation after his presidential term is up. He is contesting the election, but will he go further? Cross his Rubicon? Will he cast that die?

    In the closing days of 50 BC, the Roman Senate declared that Julius Caesar’s term as a provincial governor was finished. Roman law afforded its magistrates immunity to prosecution, but this immunity would end with Caesar’s term. As the leader of the populares faction, Caesar had many enemies among the elite optimates, and as soon as he left office, these enemies planned to bury him in litigation. Caesar knew he would lose everything: property, liberty, even his life.

    Caesar decided it was better to fight for victory than accept certain defeat. In January 49 BC, he crossed the Rubicon River with his army, in violation of sacred Roman law, and begin a civil war. “Alea iacta est,” said Caesar: The die is cast.


    In the closing days of 2020 AD, the American media has declared that Donald Trump’s term as president is finished. As the leader of the deplorables faction, Trump has many enemies among the elite irates, and as soon as he leaves office, these enemies plan to bury him in litigation. Bill Pascrell, the Chairman of the House Ways & Means Subcommittee on Oversight, has officially called for the prosecution of President Trump for “government crimes” following his term in office. In his thirst for vengeance, Pascrell has made it clear there will be no Nixonian escape by pardon:

    Donald Trump, along with his worst enablers, must be tried for their crimes against our nation and Constitution. Any further abuse of the sacred pardon power to shield criminals would itself be obstruction of justice, and any self-pardons would be illegal.

    Like Caesar, Trump now must fight for victory or lose everything. Come January 2021, will Donald Trump decide to cast the die and cross the Rubicon? He might.


    The same people who warned us that Trump is worse than Hitler will now scoff: “Donald Trump is no Caesar!” That’s true. Trump is in a much better position than Caesar was.



    Unlike Caesar, Trump can cross the Rubicon legally. He need violate no sacred law. He has all of the legal power he needs to act and win. Congress has given it to him. All he needs to do is invoke the Insurrection Act.

    Read the rest of the article about what the Insurrection Act can do.

    What legitimate litigation will Trump face?
    Claims from woman that never made them until he ran for President?
    He has been audited for over a dozen years. Even the NYTimes admitted that his tax returns cleared him of everything including the Cohen claims.
    Stormy not only recanted but owes him 1/4 million in court costs so there is nothing there.

    The NY DA had nothing before he got to see the tax returns and still nothing.

    What would be the charges?

    They will have Trump busy in the courts for years with baseless lawsuits that will cost him money and give the TDS Left Media something to talk about as Biden stumbles.

    The plan might also be to harass him enough so he won't be tempted to make another run in 2024.

    Trumpies, I am sorry for your loss! Really, I feel your pain. Its painfull to be so emotionally invested in such a fraud , a liar and grifter and con man like Trump. The CULT 45 really gut hooked you, as you bought into a slogan; MAGA, then found out he couldn't deliver! Demagogues are very tempting to vote for, so I understand, but they can never deliver the goods, and will lie with impunity to hoodwink you!
    But also understand, this is Cult like behavior(look it up)
    His appeals towards racism, misogeny, and blatant bigotry bring out the unbridled hatred that always lurks within the American psyche. We have seem many cultists appear before, like Jim Jones, Branch Dividians, The Rajneeh and PT. Barnum who held a Svengali like effect upon those who drank their poison and ignored their 'better angels'.
    If you had done just a little research, you would have discovered that Mr. Trump is a con man extraordinairre, and has such major character defects that cannot be ignored,eg. Johnston's book on his life as a con man. In reality, he just was not suited for the job as president of the USA. But you didn't! You wanted to believe his lies and slogans.
    And so we enter a new era, of just plain old Joe. It will seem boring to you after the chaos of Trump.Normalcy is boring, but let me assure you, Joe is no flaming radical, and will pursue a boring agenda of NORMALCY, which to most Americans, will be welcome relief from the cacaphony and delusions of Trump.
    Ike Eisenhower was right; we need to stay away from the extremes of the right and left and pursue a centrist path, and resist the extremists and violent rhetoric of nut jobs who seek to destroy what remains of our tenuous democrac
