When You Strike At A King, You Must Kill Him

For the past three years, President Donald J. Trump has been under continuous and savage attack from the Democrat Party, its fellow travelers the mainstream media and more than a few RINO enablers and even one or two flat out traitors. Yet he remains unbowed, undefeated and unrelenting in achieving his objectives. As I noted previously, President Trump continues to rack up his list of campaign promises kept. Yesterday however, something changed. If you thought Donald Trump the counterpuncher was bad, well folks, now that he has been acquitted of the baseless charges spawned by Democrat fevered imagination, the gloves have now come off and the retribution will (and should be!) swift and painful.

At Thursday’s Annual Prayer Breakfast, The President served notice that he was loathe to adopt the Bushes, père et fils policy of turning the other cheek in hope that the Leftists would cut them a break. The Democrat Party just looks at that as weakness. President Trump learned that lesson long ago. The President remarked,

“I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong,”

In an obvious if indirect shot at Senator Mitt Romney’s cowardly and disloyal guilty vote…

“Nor do I like people who say, ‘I pray for you’ when you know that is not so….”

That was a veiled shot at Speaker Pelosi who once claimed that as a good Catholic, she prayed for President Trump every day…two lies for the price of one. It was all the more enjoyable to see that Madam Speaker was within three feet of The President when he made these remarks. Her facial gyrations were a frightening sight to behold.

Later, at the White House, during his press briefing about the Impeachment results, President Trump let us all know how he really feels. This time he named names.

“These people are vicious. Adam Schiff is a vicious, horrible person. Nancy Pelosi is a horrible person. And she wanted to impeach a long time ago…”

President Trump is right and these people need to understand that their attempt at political regicide, murder, lynching, mutiny, soft coup or whatever you want to call it, has failed. They have left The King unwounded. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “When you strike at a king, you must kill him.”

Given the ignominy of the Democrats latest defeats, I can imagine an allegorical path forward for Trump, that reminds me of the final scene in the original Godfather movie. In that scene, Michael is attending the Christening of his nephew, while around the country, all of his tormentors are being whacked.

Here’s the clip. It’s pretty gruesome. Please note, neither I nor Red State are hinting at much less advocating violence.

President Trump’s political version of that scene has been playing out in fits and starts, but has now gotten serious. Here are just three Now four**, recent examples…with more to follow I’m sure. Imagine a movie scene parallel to The Godfather, where The People play the part of the Priest, President Trump is responding their interrogatories and in a series of scene cuts, various anti-Trumpers are being dealt with.

The People: Will you make America Great Again?
Trump: I WILL make America great again.
Scene: Cut to Utah Legislators introducing a bill to recall Senator Romney.

Trump is not and should not follow in the path of previous Republicans like the Bushes. Senator Romney will find out shortly, just how short the hang time is between being a media darling for defying President Trump, and his return to an object of Democrat scorn and derision. The President has made a great start. Please feel free to list in the comments, any other scenes you’d like to see played out as part of this film finale. (No violence please).

I’ll leave you with one final, happy warrior thought…

“A man’s greatest pleasure is to defeat his enemies, to drive them before him, to take from them that which they possessed, to see those whom they cherished in tears, to ride their horses, and to hold their wives and daughters in his arms.”

—Genghis Kahn
