For those who understand the decades-long war between the globalist Deep State, who seek world government, and the Patriots, who wish to retain America's independence from all nations and individual liberty, Tucker Carlson's question to Donald Trump in his interview with him on Aug. 23 does not seem strange at all. "Will they assassinate you?" he asked.
Trump is the one person standing in their way. This was so from the day he announced his intent to run for president. He was not with the Deep State. He could not be bribed, blackmailed or intimidated. For eight years, they have used every weapon at their disposal to destroy him. From the unconstitutional FISA warrants to spy on his campaign to the "he's not my president" movement the day after his inauguration to the four indictments with 91 charges against him, all designed to incarcerate him or make him ineligible to be president.
Many patriots believe that John F. Kennedy was the last president to really oppose the Deep State. The Kennedy family believes that the CIA was responsible for his assassination. That is why the Deep State will not allow Democrat Robert F. Kennedy Jr., his nephew, to have the office of president either.
Carlson stated, "The indictments aren't working. So what is the Deep State going to do now? Are they going to kill you? Are they going to assassinate you?"
"So, the reason I'm asking you is I'm looking at the trajectory since 2015. When you got into politics ... they start with protests against you, massive protests, organized protests by the Left and then it moved to impeachment twice and now indictments. I mean, the next stage is violence. Are you worried that they're gonna try and kill you? Why wouldn't they try and kill you?
Trump answered, honestly, they're savage animals. They are people that are sick, really sick" (X22 Reports, hereafter not cited, Ep. 3148b, August 24, 2023, 59:44).
Trump never really answered the question.
Will Robinson nailed the seriousness of the question. "Tucker's interview with Trump is the first time in American history that the leading presidential candidate has been asked if his political opponents will murder him rather than allow his victory" (Ibid.).
Tucker's concern is reasonable. The Deep State staged a treasonous coup to bring themselves to power. If Trump is returned at the demand of the American people, and he does have irrefutable evidence of this as he says he has, they go to prison -- likely Guantanamo Bay. All will be revealed. They undoubtedly have a much greater incentive than Lee Harvey Oswald and the CIA did in 1963. Trump failed to get the release of the CIA files on the Kennedy Assassination but promised to release them when re-elected. They have to realize that no one has ever successfully resisted their shadow government, in place to some extent since the William McKinley era of the 1890s. They must believe with Trump gone, they escape justice and remain in power.
With the National Guard monitoring the 2024 elections, it is likely Trump will be re-elected. Tucker's interview with Trump must have petrified the Deep State as it was the most viewed interview in American history -- more than twice the viewership of the Super Bowl. At approximately 250 million viewers, this single event surpassed the five most-watched television interviews in American history combined. These were: "Michael Jackson and Oprah Winfrey -- 62 million average viewers; Richard Nixon and David Frost -- 45 million average viewers; Michel Jackson and Lisa Presley -- 37.5 million average viewers; Bill and Hillary Clinton and Steve Kroft -- 34 million average viewers; and Stormy Daniels and Anderson Cooper -- 22 million average viewers" (Ep. 3148b, August 24, 2023, 44:25). These combined totaled 200.5 million viewers. This is the Deep State's worst nightmare. No matter what they do, Trump's popularity grows.
Amazingly, he held these extraordinary numbers simultaneous with the Republican Party presidential debates in which Trump declined to participate because he had 62% of all voters nationally and was at least 46% points above the next highest Republican contender, Ron DeSantis. He chose instead to be with Tucker Carlson, speaking to all Americans (Ep. 3145b, August 21, 2023, 55:46). The nation watched him.
Trump just separated himself from the entire establishment, both Democrat and RINO. No one can beat this movement. We can predict the outcome of the election 15 months before it happens. This is phenomenal! Indeed, the nation has chosen Trump and no one else.
The Deep State presses: Forbes, The Hill, The New York Times, ABC News, Rolling Stone, Intelligence, and CBS all went out of their way to belittle the interview and its meaning, but these no longer control the national narrative. Trump does.
Trump has now been hit with "a total of 91 criminal charges in four indictments issued over just the past five months. All 91 brought by Democrat prosecutors ...only after Trump announced he was running for president again" (Ep. 3140b, August 15, 2023, 57:15). The 19 indicted in Georgia, along with Trump, turned themselves in as ordered Aug. 25 and posted bail (Ibid., 49:34). But America is not with the Deep State prosecutors. A recent New York Times poll asked if Trump has committed serious crimes. 71% said no, and only 17% said yes (Ep. 3145b, August 21, 2023, 58:11). With 62% believing that the 2020 election was rigged, a Trump landslide is predictable (Ep. 3140b, Aug. 15, 2023, 1:06:35).
But Patriots are not entirely unhappy with Trump being indicted. For the first time in three years, they will be able, in court, to show how the presidential election of 2020 was rigged and stolen, this time to a far more sympathetic national audience. They always wanted to present their case in court but lacked standing. This time, Trump and all the accused have injury and thus standing, plus they have subpoena power.
