President Biden & Vice President Harris,
I see a compelling reason to address this letter to both of you as Heads of Government.
I do so in my capacity as a syndicated columnist of the Sahara Reporters Media Company of New York.
I was among the first to accurately predict you were going to be the Democratic nominee and would go on to defeat Donald Trump by some miracle.
I did so knowing that the incumbent was going to be a hard nut to crack to put it mildly
I stuck to that prediction while you were losing in Iowa and New Hampshire and running far behind Bernie Sanders. Elizabeth Warren snd Pete Buttigieg,
I stood by you pretty much like Congressman James Clyburn of South Carolina had stood by you and I contributed my widow’s mite to your campaign a few times and I wrote many articles on the social media proactively supporting you because I believed in you.
I was so sure that you were going to be the nominee and become the next President of the United States. I have been proved right.
You won in a landslide by a miracle because you were running against a sitting President who was devilish enough to use all his leverage of power and the Secret Service to blackmail you just like Richard Nixon had once tried to blackmail Robert Kennedy who eventually died through an Assasin’s Bullet a few days before he was to become the official nominee of the Democratic Party to run against Nixon.
Rachel Maddow had recently done an interview on MSNBC on Monday May 17 from 9 PM to 10 PM in which she interviewed one Carol Leonnig a day before the release of her new book titled, “Zero Fail”: The Rise and Fall of the American Secret Service.
I have just finished reading the book. Once I started reading it, I could not stop until I finished reading it from cover to cover.
Having invested so much time and energy in your presidency, I knew I have to address this open letter to you in the hope and expectation that somebody close to you might see it and draw your attention because you have too much on your plate to pay any mind to this kind of an SOS from one of your loyal supporters in America who not only want you to succeed but to survive and to excel and to not get hurt in a country where your predecessor has created an environment where too many deranged people have felt empowered to do bad things to people in power as observed by the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the former Secretary of State, the one and only Colin Powell.
I am convinced beyond all shades of doubt that you could be exposing yourself and your VP to a serious and grave danger and even to death through a plane crash or through an assassination similar to what happened to Indira Gandhi who was assassinated by a member of her own Security Detail.
I am not saying that anything bad is going to happen to you or your VP but I am asking you to be extremely careful and watchful
The price of Liberty and safety for you and your VP has to be seen as eternal vigilance.
The attack on the US Capitol on January 6 is only a tip of the iceberg. Another civilian Coup like that may be inevitable given what we know today and what has been brilliantly and painstakingly documented in that amazing book by Carol Leonnig as your predecessor continues to promote and to provoke hatred civil disobedience against your Administration, while deliberately and falsely inciting his loyal supporters all over the country to still believe that you stole the election away from him.
Some ‘crazy dude’ might just feel provoked and upset and traumatized enough to do something totally wacko, totally unexpected, and dangerous, and irreversible to please Donald Trump.
You can expect such feelings to blow out of proportion and to escalate if he, Donald Trump were to be indicted and charged for some of the crimes he allegedly committed while in office and after leaving the White House.
The refusal of both the Minority leader Kevin McCarthy and Minority Senate Leader Mitch McConnell to suddenly turn their backs on the Commission and to now say that they are not going to support or participate in the setting up of a new bi-partisan Commission to get to the bottom of what occurred on January 6, 2021 and what motivated the civilian coup could be a bad omen for what is to come. Republicans are secretly embarrassed and dragging their feet because a good number of them bear as much vicarious responsibility like Trump for the disgraceful desecration of the Holy Grail of Democracy.
Donald Trump who had known since April that he had become the target of a criminal investigation by the New York Southern District of the Federal Department of Justice is doing everything to prepare his supporters to get ready to stage another coup in which members of the Secret Sarvice loyal to him might be more surreptitiously involved than they were in the January 6 storming and desecration of the Capitol. It is an understatement to call America a Banana Republic if for the second time in 6 months to one year another disruptive insurrection were to occur, this time, under your watch and you could no longer put the blame on Trump even though it should be clear by now to your FBI and your CIA and your Secret Service that Trump is the “fons et origo” of the mischief and political unrest.
The Leonnig Book had focused on that eventuality like a laser beam hence my decision to write this open letter to you
The Republicans have found themselves cornered on all sides and with their backs against the wall as they are now trying to settle for the lesser of two evils in their calculus because they now know that the bubble is going to burst for them and their embattled Party and naked Emperor who no longer has his Roy Cohn of an Attorney General in William Barr to cover up for him and the whole bunch of his loyalists who have suddenly become radio-active and endangered species for all we know.
The public announcement yesterday May 20, 2021 by Letitia James, the Attorney General of New York State and the ongoing investigation of the Donald Trump by the New York Southern District of the US Department of Justice could be another pointer to what is to come down the pike for the outlaw former President who is desperately looking for the ways and means to get himself back to the White House means going through the back door and through some mysterious subterfuge.
In his convoluted mind, Donald Trump still sees himself as Head of a Government in exile and he now wants his supporters to whitewash or even deny that January 6, 2021 apocalyptic eruption at the Capitol was really another day in infamy to quote FDR’s superb characterization of “Pearl Harbor”
I am much more concerned today about your safety and security than ever before and I hope and pray that you pay as much attention to that subject like the rest of us do.
God bless and keep you, Mr. President.
