    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.

    Trump is to Caesar as Rudy is to Cicero.
