Laura Clark: Who’s the real threat to democracy?

If you turn on your TV, the media and Democrats won’t stop telling you that Donald Trump is a threat to democracy that must be stopped at any cost. He is “a convicted felon” who wants to undermine our elections. The truth is the kangaroo court in New York that railroaded the former president has shown millions of Americans that they are the real threat to democracy.

The Democrats are working overtime to weaponize the judicial system to interfere in the 2024 Election. Not to “save our democracy” but to save Joe Biden. They know that President Trump is going to beat Biden on November 5th, and the only way they can try to stop him is by trumping up frivolous charges in an attempt to dupe the American people into supporting the worst president in our nation’s history.

The numbers don’t lie. According to the RealClearPolitics Polling Average, 64% of Americans believe the country is on the wrong track, and 55% disapprove of Joe Biden’s performance as president. Biden has a lower approval rate than all three presidents who preceded him at this same point in their reelection bids.

So unsurprisingly, President Trump is leading Joe Biden in RCP’s national General Election polling and winning in crucial battleground states like Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and North Carolina by 4-5%. This is why the Biden campaign, the DNC, and these Soros-backed prosecutors have teamed up to “get Trump.” With the media as their willing accomplice in this unprecedented attack on our political norms.

We should not be surprised, though, because this is just a continuation of the many absurd conspiracies and hoaxes that Democrats have leveled at President Trump since he came down that escalator in 2015.

Do you remember the Russia collusion hoax or any of the other countless lies they have peddled since? Because I do. And I believe that millions of other Americans remember those failed attempts to “get Trump” and think this time they have gone too far.

The Democrats can’t get away with the weaponization of our legal system. They can’t be allowed to interfere in this election successfully. If they succeed, we may never see another free and fair election again in this country.

Good people won’t run for office, and those who do will eventually be prosecuted just like President Trump when they stand up against the establishment. Remember, they will never stop with him.

If they can take him down, then no one will be safe. Whether you are running for President, Senator, county commissioner, or dog catcher, the precedent will be set, and our political fabric will be forever changed.

That is why I am so proud of Senator Tuberville and the rest of our federal delegation for continuing to fight back against this tragic and despicable attack on free and fair elections. If good people don’t stand up and fight back against this outrage, soon, there won’t be any good people left standing.
