It began on Monday with the resignation by one of the president’s fiercest critics who has been after him for years: Eric Schneiderman, the now freshly disgraced New York attorney general. He resigned Monday night when it was revealed that this lowlife – a supporter of “women’s rights” – had physically abused not one but four women “with whom he was romantically involved.” Schneiderman is now a target himself: New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced he was launching an investigation into the four women’s charges that were published by the New Yorker magazine.
On Tuesday, Trump’s policies were touted by winners in three states’ primaries, blunting the expectations of a “blue wave” that Democrats have been predicting was about to engulf both houses of Congress in November.
On Wednesday, Rasmussen reported polls showing that voters are finally getting tired of the endless, useless, fruitless investigations by Mueller into Trump’s alleged collusion with the Russians during his campaign. Rasmussen wrote:
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of the 2016 election is actually going to drive Republicans to vote this year for candidates endorsed by President Trump.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 31% of Likely U.S. Voters say the Mueller probe will make them more likely to vote this year for a candidate endorsed by President Trump….
On Thursday, the indefatigable president met the three American prisoners held in communist North Korea at 3 o’clock in the morning. They were released after pressure was applied by the president’s freshly minted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo during a 90-minute face-to-face meeting with the tyrannical fat boy who has finally realized he is not dealing with Obama.
Trump was in his usual fine form, saying to the press gathered in the pre-dawn hour, “These are great people. Frankly, we didn’t think this was going to happen, but it did. It was important to get these people out. This is a special night for these three really great people.”
And then, turning to the newly freed American citizens, he added, “I think you probably broke the all-time-in-history television rating for 3 o’clock in the morning!”
When the plane carrying the freed prisoners and the President and his entourage touched down in Alaska for refueling, the State Department released a statement from the three:
We would like to express our deep appreciation to the United States government, President Trump, Secretary Pompeo, and the people of the United States for bringing us home. We thank God, and all our families and friends who prayed for us and for our return. God Bless America, the greatest nation in the world.
The three were jailed on what appeared to be false charges of espionage and various other crimes against the state. The story of one of them is likely typical not only of the experience of the other two, but of many others jailed for such crimes in North Korea over the years. As the Daily Mail reported:
Kim Dong Chui, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in South Korea … was seized in North Korea on October 2, 2015 and accused of spying….
He worked just across the North Korean border … where he ran a hotel services company. He was also a pastor.
At a news conference organized by the North Korean dictatorship in March 2016, Kim told reporters that he was a spy and “apologized for trying to steal military secrets in collusion with South Koreans” and called his own actions “unpardonable.” After a one-day trial in April, he was sentenced to 10 years of hard labor. But, as the Daily Mail pointed out, “Previous victims of this regime have explained that they were forced to make similar public declarations of their guilt after being tortured, despite being innocent.”
It was noted that, immediately upon arrival in the U.S. the three were hustled off to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for “evaluation and medical treatment.”
The early morning scene of celebration contrasted sharply with the arrival of another American citizen, Otto Wambler, 11 months ago, who had been so badly treated and tortured by the communist regime that he never recovered from his coma and died within five days of his arrival in the U.S.
The Donald is no doubt enjoying the discomfiture of his enemies as he continues roll up one victory, one success, after another in a remarkable week. And the week isn’t over!
