Remember the Trump warning: Anytime the traitor gets particularly crazy, it’s because he’s scared. It’s one way we can measure how things are progressing with the indictments.

And Trump is most definitely frightened. It’s funny. Trump would never admit to feeling fear because he views the admittance of any vulnerability as a sign of weakness. He has not yet learned the truth — that it is the very strong who admit they are flawed. It is the ones with soul and humility who admit to things like being frightened.

But actions speak louder than words, and we see Trump’s fear. We saw it on Thursday when he went on a wild rant, a diatribe in which he accused Special Prosecutor Jack Smith of trying to rig the 2020 presidential election against him. 2020 — NOT 2024 — although I’m sure he meant this one too. That’s one way to get Smith’s attention I suppose.

Trump is fearful. He has always been fearful of the four swords — the four swords of Damocles. These swords hover over him, sparking with soon-to-be promises fulfilled.

And isn’t it funny that many pundits refer to only three? They seem to have forgotten that there are FOUR — not three. Let’s look at them together. One sword has vanished because it isn’t imminent anymore — it’s already happened.

That was the indictment by Alvin Bragg. So that’s come to pass. But there are three more — three more swords of Damocles, hanging over him, preventing him from calm, aiding and abetting in his wild temper tantrums.

Those are: the case in Georgia and Jack Smith. BUT — We need to count Jack Smith twice. Because Smith is looking at indicting Trump in two different ways. One is for the stolen documents. And one is for the insurrection.

Many pundits seem to lump both these two Smith cases in as one. I’ve noticed that. In truth, they are three — three little swords — three little terrors watching the traitor, preventing him from moving on.

And that is likely why Trump erupted the other night. Jack Smith is in his brain. After all — accusing the special prosecutor of trying to rig an election that happened years ago isn’t exactly smart.

So as we go forward, remember — we do not have TWO swords left; we have three. One done, three more to do. Where will it all end up? Likely with more indictments and many more tantrums from the guilty one.
