Will Trump likely be found not guilty in the porn queen case? Will it matter? The Judge, Juan M. Merchan, is almost certain to be goaded into sentencing Trump to a symbolically short jail time, which will give Trump huge leverage to say he is a victim of Biden’s plan to make him more and more a victim. This would play well with his MAGA voters. Trump already has gotten a free ride, as you can read below, from his delay strategy assuring that none of his trials on his other three indictments will be litigated before the November 5th election.

Another judge Trump appointed has come to his rescue in the Florida classified documents case. Read here the facts of her perfidy about justice:

For Trump, it’s the latest in a spate of good legal news, coming less than 24 hours after U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon indefinitely postponed his federal trial in Florida on charges of hoarding classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate after leaving office.

In addition to the Florida case, Trump’s other federal criminal case — on charges that he criminally conspired to subvert the 2020 election — is also teetering as the Supreme Court considers whether to declare him immune from the charges altogether. A trial this year is still possible if the justices do not grant Trump the sweeping presidential immunity, he says should block the prosecution.

But the legal snags have raised the odds that Trump might never face a jury in either of the two federal cases, both of which were brought by special counsel Jack Smith. If Trump wins the election later this year and the two federal cases remain pending, he is all but certain to order the Justice Department to unravel them. And his lawyers have foreshadowed efforts to postpone the Georgia trial during a potential presidency, even if it is allowed to proceed by the state courts.

The combined effects of the unsolved Gaza disaster, the protracted war in Ukraine and Trump blocking the bipartisan immigration bill, which limits Biden’s options to solve that problem, could very likely give Trump a 2nd term!

The enormity of such an event will quickly dawn on a huge number of voters who well understood its implications and felt quite quickly by those who did not! Trump has now lined up his lieutenants who are prepared to rapidly assist him in enacting his authoritarian regime which will change our democracy forever.

Perhaps you read my May 3 article “What if The Anti-Man wins?” which lists the issues Trump will pursue or not pursue, all of which have dire consequences for the US and our allies around the world.

Here is a short list of Trump’s stated or inferred positions which could be easily expanded!

Start with anti-integrity the absence of which allows no shame, remorse, or restraint to pursue power.

How about being Anti our Constitution and the rule of law for which he shows his current disdain with his behavior in his NYC porn star trial?

Let’s just quickly list other of the most formidable anti Trump 2nd term objectives possible here:

Anti climate change
Anti Ukraine funding
Anti US leadership abroad (Isolationist)
Anti-choice on safe abortions for women
Anti blacks and ethnics
Anti Sound Business practices
Anti-gun control
Anti separation of church and state
Anti voting integrity
Anti fair taxation

All of the above Antis have been widely covered in major media. A recent example is the May 2nd Alan Blinder Wall Street Journal article entitled “There’s No Business-Like White House Business”.

The prospect of this fascist in training felon escaping jail time for trying to overthrow Biden’s 2020 election so disgusts and frightens several close friends of mine. They tell me they are seriously considering moving abroad if Trump wins. Moving abroad they will discover will not allow them to escape the tidal wave effects on the entire world of the world’s most powerful democracy beginning its decline (Hong Kong and other freedom-oriented entities) into intolerable authoritarianism if not worse.

As Putin has reorganized Russia into even more dictatorial control, Trump’s isolationism and his distain for NATO will so imbalance our capacity and that of our democratic allies to contain the expansion of Russia and China. China’s long promised attack on Taiwan would then likely ensue along causing the enfeeblement of key Asian democracies such as Japan and South Korea.

Read this highly disturbing account of the Putin moves for a more hostile and powerful Russia.

Here is the opening paragraph of his actions, studied for 6 months by the Post staffers and consultants on the ground.

Vladimir Putin is positioning Russia as America’s most dangerous and aggressive enemy, and transforming his country in ways that stand to make it a bitter adversary of the West for decades to come.

Over more than six months, The Washington Post examined the profound changes sweeping Russia as Putin has used his war in Ukraine to cement his authoritarian grip on power.

The Russian leader is militarizing his society and infusing it with patriotic fervor, reshaping the education system, condemning scientists as traitors, promoting a new Orthodox religiosity and retrograde roles for women, and conditioning a new generation of youth to view the West as a mortal enemy in a fight for Russia’s very survival.

For this series — “Russia, Remastered” — our journalists reported extensively in Russia, especially Moscow and St. Petersburg, and central and western parts of the country. They also met with or spoke to Russians living in exile around the world, including officials, analysts, experts and civilians.

Our reporting also relied on government documents, including presidential decrees, transcripts of Putin’s speeches and remarks at public events, national and local Russian news reports and television broadcasts, social media posts, blogs and Telegram channels.

Some people interviewed for this series in Russia have since been imprisoned or have fled.

Here’s what our reporting revealed:

The new Russia is positioning itself as a superpower nemesis of the United States.

This tyrant is one that Trump found more credible than his own intelligence department. He said recently he was willing to have Putin do anything to NATO allies who didn’t pay more for their own defense.

In light of the continuing rise of environmental disasters here and around the world, the failure of Trump to continue the serious efforts Biden has initiated to deal with the climate crisis will allow the trend of disastrous weather and other environmental conditions to rapidly worsen.

If Democrats think the abortion issue will win over disaffected minorities in adequate numbers to save the swing states, I will be surprised.

Our democracy, our economic success and the integrity of the vastly underrated Biden Presidency will be gone like the integrity of the majority on the Supreme Court!

With 6 months until November 5th many unfocused voters continue to prioritize their votes based on inflation, which is declining along with gas prices, as rising wages will continue to restrain rises in food prices, and increasing horrors in Gaza, are perceived failures of Biden despite a fine first term. Their failure to grasp the ghastly Trump alternative will allow Trump to win.

As doom’s day on November 5th looms for us and the Free World, the chances for Biden’s reelection are going to be thrown away by voter indifference, ignorance and in too many voters believing Trump’s lies about the facts with his MAGA voters and non MAGAs getting sucked in to embrace more hatred!

One small caveat of hope would be that the continuing porn star trial in NYC which has at least over a month to run. Will his lack of personal control and the testimony of Michael Cohen and others so anger Trump that he will continue to make statements that disclose to enough voters his lack of governing skill or personal ethics to lose November 5th. I am not optimistic.
