Yep, you guessed it. Trump is playing out the neo version of the Julius Caesar and Brutus scenario. The U.S. is the Roman Empire, and Trump is a hybrid Julius Caesar who is rich and proud with power. But who is Brutus and the Roman senate that brings on instability and then crushes Caesar?
This hybrid Brutus of modern day is very close to Trump, but has shown a clear willingness to have him circled by Bear-Traps. These Traps are legal maneuvers where ethics and fairness are waived because the ends justify the means. Some will say Trump deserves what he gets even if laws are broken to get him in the Bear-Trap.
Short sightedness of history could cause too many people to think things have never been this bad politically. But they are very wrong. Would anyone say it is worse than when President Lincoln decided against the South, and we had the Civil War? Within that period and others there were threats of imposing improper use of Martial Law, and States of Emergency, and additionally the risk for suspension of Habeas Corpus.
Under the guise of self-righteousness and ‘Political Correctness’ our modern day Brutus and his cohorts have been exposed to be a threat to the safeguarding of individual freedom against arbitrary and lawless state action on U.S. citizens.
Some might see all that is happening as an attempted legalized coup that invalidates an election result.
The case of the hybrid Brutus Bear-Trap that snares the hybrid Caesar is intriguing, entertaining, and a sad drama. The cliffhanger is whether or not the trapped leg is cut off to free him or does he stay trapped in an attempt to save the leg? What is the leg a metaphor of here? Is Brutus unstoppable? Can Rome survive this mess?
If all the actors involved are committed to extremes in order to beat the other, we are looking at a constitutionally mangled warfare among the D.C. crowd with loads of dollars wasted.. In that case, the Supreme Court becomes a hornet’s nest. Trump could possibly avoid some of this if he jettisons that bear-trapped leg and then kicks out the Brutus.
