Judge Jeanine Pirro is one smart lawyer — one who has turned out a second bestseller that catches the Left dead to rights.

That bestseller is Radicals, Resistance, and Revenge: The Left’s Plot to Remake America. Her first, another bestseller from the Fox host, was Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy.

In her new book, bit by bit she builds — and proves — her case that this virulent left-wing Trump Derangement Syndrome has subjected President Trump

to unprecedented maligning by the mainstream media, high-level Obama administration officials, and disappointed, disgruntled, and deranged Democrats. He has been accused of being an agent of a foreign government, a Putin puppet, and a treasonous dictator, all because they despise the president we put in the Oval Office.

From her opener Judge Jeanine goes on to nail what she quite correctly calls the

biggest scandal in American history, bar none: an attempted elimination of a presidential candidate and then coup against the duly elected president of the United States from within the government itself.

Indeed it is.

The judge makes the ironclad case as to just why the likes of ex-CIA Director John Brennan, fired FBI Director James “Cardinal” Comey, fired ex-FBI Director Andrew McCabe, and FBI pals Peter Strzok and Lisa Page plus ex-Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch should be “investigated by a grand jury.” The recent announcement that U.S. Attorney John Durham, conducting the Justice Department investigation, has now turned this into a criminal case shows just how perceptive a lawyer Judge Jeanine is.

She points out something that is now blatantly obvious, titling a chapter this way:

Revenge Off the Rails: The Resistance Attacks Barr

It is crystal clear, she correctly says, that when the Mueller report struck out in failing to prove the Trump–Russia collusion myth, the angry Swamp mob turned their sights on getting Attorney General Bill Barr. And for one key reason:

Attorney General Bill Barr isn’t just in their way. He’s on their trails with an investigation into the origins of this attempted presidential coup.… Their hysteria over Bill Barr was so intense that for a while it seemed like they forgot Donald Trump was the man they hated. It was like a mini-Resistance within the main Resistance. They became desperate because they understood what Bill Barr is capable of.

Yes indeed. Bill Barr and John Durham are on the trail, and when the results of their investigations are finally made public, you can count on even more abuse hurled in Barr’s — and Durham’s — direction.

What certainly comes in on the amusing side is when the judge takes note of the plotters turning on each other. She points out that Comey “is now trashing (ex-Deputy Attorney General) Rod Rosenstein (because he) didn’t have anywhere near the ‘inner strength’ to stand up to Donald Trump.”

Comey is also “in a finger-pointing duel with former CIA Director John Brennan.”

You can almost hear Judge Jeanine laughing as she types:

This one I can’t wait to watch play out. They’re both accusing each other of being liars and being the first to put the (Christopher Steele) fake dossier into the intelligence community.

She is right. So right I have stocked up with extra popcorn to enjoy what is surely more to come just like that.

In particular a very welcome — make that needed — chapter is about the fact that it is “open season on conservatives.” The judge writes of the rage that has been directed at both herself and the president:

All over the country, the radical Left has decided that it’s open season on conservatives like us. They now believe that they are allowed to punch us, scream at us, and throw things in our direction without consequence — all for the crime of supporting the President of the United States. They kick us out of their restaurants. They spit on us over the counters of their bars. They declare openly that we are not welcome in their small businesses. And if we dare fight back against them, they call it a hate crime.”

This is perhaps one of the most serious problems amid all the many problems with Trump Derangement Syndrome. The Left seethes at free speech, targeting the sponsors of conservative television and talk radio shows to force the hosts off the air. (In my case, simply being a CNN contributor was enough to trigger them.) They shut down conservative speakers on college campuses, manipulate the law, and abuse government agencies. In the latter case the last few days of impeachment hearings have illustrated just how deeply entrenched the attitude of Trump-hating career bureaucrats is when it comes to the rule of law.

She points out about how we have come to joke about “banana republics.… But they’re no joke.” Indeed not. Yet this banana republic mentality from the Left is exactly what she spotlights as a very serious problem.

There is more here in Radicals, Resistance, and Revenge. This is a book that lays out in chapter and verse exactly and in detail what we are witnessing across the board with rogue government officials, a wildly unbalanced mainstream media, and, as she calls it, “The Democrats’ Siren Song of Socialism,” noting directly and correctly that “socialism can’t be maintained without authoritarianism because it defies human nature.”

What she successfully prosecutes in this book is the deadly serious case against the American Left in its fevered campaign of hatred against a duly elected president.

It needs to be said that Judge Jeanine Pirro has written not just a superb book detailing the events threatening our nation — she has written a necessary book.
