Who Will Make the Finals and Win the Upcoming Presidential Race?

President Trump looks like one of the two finalists, but President Biden may not make it and whether or not it is best for the United States for him to make it and lose or not make it and be replaced by Michelle Obama for what would be an awesome battle for the soul of America remains to be seen.

Full Disclosure: I support President Trump. I'm not sure President Biden will be the other finals and I hope that he will be.

Why do I support President Trump?

Five years ago, on June 18, 2019, then President Donald Trump answered a letter from my cousin, Laurence Veras, as follows:

    "Thank you for taking the time to express your views regarding immigration policy.

    "My first duty as President is to keep the American people safe, and that obligation guides my approach to immigration and border security.

    "Immigration to the United States is a privilege, not a right. The Federal Government has the responsibility to enforce all laws passed by Congress, to rigorously vet and screen all foreign nationals seeking entry into the United States, and to keep drugs, criminals, and terrorists from entering our country and threatening our citizens.

    "Additionally, we must have responsible controls on the future entry of foreign workers to protect jobs and wages for existing United States workers of all backgrounds. I have issued an Executive Order to help accomplish this goal as I promised during the campaign.

    "Further, we achieved a record reduction in illegal immigration on the southern border, an effort that requires constant vigilance against a wide array of threats and challenges. We are also taking action to confront unlawful sanctuary city jurisdictions that dangerously shield criminal aliens. Moreover, I continue to press Congress to end the visa lottery and extended-family chain migration, to provide a permanent solution for the status of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and to move forward a merit-based immigration system. Crucial planning and preparations are underway for the border wall, which is necessary to stop the trafficking of drugs, guns, weapons, and people.

    "If we continue to enforce our laws and protect our communities. workers and struggling workers, we will reduce our deficit, increase incomes, and make our communities safer for each and every American – both now and in the future."

Bravo, President Trump.

His reelection in 2020 would have been terrific, but, rightly or wrongly, Congress finally declared that Joe Biden would succeed Donald Trump as President of the United States and so he did.

Then Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden had successfully sold the lie that President Trump had to be replaced because he was working with Russia and the Hunter Biden laptop story really was "Russian disinformation" as 50 (actually 51) alleged experts had declared.

The highlight of the 2020 presidential debate was candidate Biden citing that letter of the Gang of 51.

Did Biden "steal" that election?

It depends upon what "steal" means.

Here's one definition: "to seize, gain, or win by trickery, skill, or daring."

Did President Biden win by trickery in 2020?

Since the FBI finally certified that the Hunter Biden laptop really was the Hunter Biden laptop, it seems to me that President Biden won by trickery in 2020, whether or not voter fraud determined the election.

This year it appears that the American voters will have the chance to set things right and reelect Donald Trump instead of Joe Biden.

Under President Biden, (1) the deficit ballooned, (2) inflation outpaced income growth, (3) illegal immigration soared as President Biden immediately reversed President Trump's executive orders that had secured the border and pretended for years that the border was secured, and (4) Democrats relied on Lawfare to keep the Trumps from moving back to the White House next January.

The special counsel who investigated President Biden decided against prosecution because President Biden was not fit for trial and a jury would not convict him out of pity for a failing old man..

That conclusion did not seem to be an abuse of prosecutorial discretion, but Biden is refusing to release the audio transcript of his five hour interview by the special counsel because it might be used against him in political ads and misused for AI purposes.

What could be better evidence of President Biden's fitness or unfitness for voters to consider than that audio transcript?

The cleaned up written transcript certainly is not what lawyers call the best evidence.

It may be a moot point if President Biden drops out of the presidential race to make way for Hillary Clinton, whom President Trump beat in 2016. or Michelle Obama, who did not long to be President but would bring with her as First Gentleman a two-term former President of the United States.

Would the Obamas take the risk of trying to come to the rescue of a Democrat Party now desperate to stop President Trump, apparently now the favorite in the race, or leave the task to Vice President Kamala Harris?

Can President Trump be so lucky as to run against President Biden's border czar?

I hope so.

If you want to know whether Michelle Obama will overcome her heartfelt antipathy to being President of the United States and are too polite to ask her directly, then check with the lady who runs the Obama Foundation, Valerie Jarrett, Obama mentor and loyalist.
