Persecution of Trump Persists

Updated: May 16

GOP allies show support, patriots urge prayers

While Trump is gagged by legal leftists in New York, Republican allies are showing up and speaking out for him.

Senator J.D. Vance of Ohio and Sen. Tommy Tuberville of Alabama arrived in the Big Apple Monday to support the former president as his political opponents execute a full court legal press to keep him from retaking the White House.

Vance chronicled his observations in a series of posts on X, one of them reading:

"We started in Trump Tower with a beautiful view of Central Park. Then you come to a dingy courthouse with people like Alvin Bragg. They [Trump haters] prevent his supporters from getting too close to the courthouse, and they prevent his friends from standing too close to him.
The president is expected to sit here for six weeks to listen to the Michael Cohens of the world. I'm now convinced the main goal of this trial is psychological torture."

One of four cases leveled against the 45th president to prevent his bid for the presidency, Trump is now on trial in New York for allegedly concealing a payment to pornographic film performer Stormy Daniels. The prosecution, led by Soros-appointed Alvin Bragg, is trying to make the case that Trump falsified business records to tip the 2016 race.

Former Trump attorney and convicted perjurer Michael Cohen is a star witness for the prosecution.

Many are noting that the leftists' attempts to destroy Trump, one way or another, in just this one case, is giving the term "trumped up charges" new meaning.

The junior Ohio senator noted the mainstream media's complicity in the no-holds-barred persecution of the former president. Reports are that "Trump looked like he was falling asleep or bored or something," he said. "The obvious narrative they're trying to sell is 'yeah Biden is mentally unfit but this other guy is bad too.'"

"It's an absurd narrative. I'm 39 years old and I've been here for 26 minutes and I'm about to fall asleep," he added.

During interviews last weekend, Vance blasted the NY v. Trump trial as an effort by Dems and their cohorts to distract from the "world is on fire" narrative under Biden. On CNN's "State of the Union," he said:

"This is about the fact that President Joe Biden has a failed record as commander-in- chief and leader of this country, and the Democrats can't talk about that. So what they're doing is putting these trials out there and saying, 'Focus on this, not on the fact that the world is on fire and the fact that you've gotten poor under the presidency of Joe Biden.'"

"The world is on fire and I sort of see Trump as a fireman."

Vance rounded out his slam by quipping on Fox News, "The world is on fire and I sort of see Trump as a bit of a fireman."

Senator Tuberville also described unseemly proceedings taking place behind the closed doors of the court room. Speaking outside at a press conference he said:

"The DA comes in [the court room] and acts like this is his Super Bowl, which I guess it is. [About Cohen] He's a convicted felon. I mean this guy is giving an acting scene. ... I'm proud to be here to support President Trump, I'm here as his friend."

In addition to the two senators, Rep. Nicole Malliotakis of New York and the attorneys general of Iowa and Alabama — Brenna Bird and Steve Marshall — went to the courthouse Monday to support Trump.

Last week Florida Sen. Rick Scott, a long-time friend of the former president, trekked to New York to show his support. He spoke about the rigged and partial trial:

"The lead prosecutor was the number three person at the Biden Justice Department. The judge's daughter is a political operative who raises money for Democrats. ... this has to stop. We know that President Biden can't win this election fair and square."


"The friendship and support of Sen. Scott is important to President Trump and to the campaign," Trump campaign senior adviser Brian Hughes said. "When Biden and the Democrats are attacking you every minute of every day, it is always good to have strong friends and supporters at your side."

Former GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, also set to be in New York to personally support Trump, has posted his observations, taking special aim at Judge Juan Merchan, who is presiding over the case:

"This sham trial is a politically motivated assault on the leading candidate for US President, green lit by his political opponent, Joe Biden, and carried out at the highest levels of the White House and Department of Justice.
Joe Biden's former number #3 at the Department Justice, Matthew Colangelo, is now leading the prosecution effort for Bragg, who himself ran for office on the promise of going after Trump. It's an insult to American democracy.
No one has a clue what the alleged crime even is. The irony here is that the crime is supposedly about bad bookkeeping, but the real bookkeeping scandal is how to account for Judge Merchan's own family members being paid millions of dollars by Democratic operatives.
His entire legal theory depends on the ludicrous idea that Trump should have used campaign funds for a personal payment, yet if Trump had done that, they'd be prosecuting him for it — which is the ultimate proof that this is a politicized persecution."

Both Vance and Ramaswamy are urging American voters to speak out about the sham prosecution by voting for Trump for president in November. Vance said:

"To the American voters who are watching this, the one opportunity you get to speak up against this sham prosecution and to say the American people elect their President, not corrupt DNC prosecutors, is to vote for Donald Trump in November."

For ordinary Americans who can't make the trek to New York, patriots are showering social media with reminders to "Pray for Trump." He has stuck out his neck for the American people. We have to storm Heaven with prayers for him, they are saying.

I believe Mike Johnson, Matt Gaetz and the rest of the members of congress that made the pilgrimage to New York were doing the right thing. We certainly don't want our legislators remaining in the halls of a dysfunctional institution when they can use their time much more effectively by decrying our justice system so the American people will distrust it as much as they already distrust congress. We didn't elect them to actually pass laws that might help Americans live their lives more effectively and less burdened by regulations. I much prefer them paying homage to a former president on trial for hush money payments to a porn star.


I have experienced this kind of thing for decades, as you probably have also if you had any sort of decency or innocence about you at one time in your life. The evil people, usually the older generation, want you to be co opted by something, as they are, to show that you are one of them, so to speak. When they cannot co opt you, by getting you to play cards, listen to the noise of Wall Street, go to a casino, eat pizza, go to a bar, go dancing, use potty mouth, smoke something, listen to gross and disgusting show offs without comment on their depravity, engage more (as a deacon told me I ought to do wh…
