Trump’s Baptism Scene

The Corleone family of Godfather fame embodied mob life and acquiring money, power and prestige through criminal activity. The Trump family—in stark contrast—embodies the nose-to-the-grindstone, upward-mobility glory of the American Dream.

Nevertheless, when I think of the fanatical, maniacal and relentless persecution, accusations, vilification, and sabotage that President Trump has experienced for the past four years at the hands of crazed Democrats—both in and out of office—the infamously stunning Baptism Scene at the end of Godfather One comes immediately to mind.

The Baptism Scene – planning…

In that scene, Michael Corleone—who attended Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, where he met his future wife Kay, and who then left college to join the U.S. Marines after the attack on Pearl Harbor—appears in the baptism ceremony where he has agreed be the godfather of Michael Rizzi, the infant son of his sister Connie and her husband Carlo Rizzi, in 1955.

The solemn ritual takes place in the splendiferous Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral, built in 1809. This Roman Catholic Church stands on Mulberry Street in New York City. It takes place shortly after the funeral of Michael’s father, the powerful Don, Vito Corleone.

Before Don Vito’s death, however, he and Michael—the ordained heir to his father’s mafia fiefdom—concoct a complex plan to vanquish all their enemies.

…and execution

Michael’s wife Kay holds the infant—who is bedecked in a lace-embroidered baptismal gown handed down through generations. The ceremony begins, with the priest intoning in both Latin and English:

Let us pray, mercifully hear our prayers, we beseech Thee, O Lord. Oremus: Preces nostras, quaesumus, Domine, clementer exaudi.

Then he sprinkles the baby’s head with the Holy Water that symbolizes purification and his admission to the Christian Church.

As the organ music builds, Michael says “I do” to renouncing Satan, renouncing his sins, and becoming the infant’s godfather. In each renunciation—five in all—he reaffirms his commitment to be worthy of this honor.

And with each surge of music in which the priest sprinkles Holy Water on the infant’s brow and Michael affirms that he has renounced his sins, the audience sees Don Vito’s and Michael’s master plan executing with balletic precision.


It took years—of intrigue, treachery, heartache—for Michael Corleone to exact revenge on the Corleone family’s enemies. Likewise it has taken years to reveal the truth of the betrayal of President Trump.

But in D.C., the bad guys are usually not shot down in elevators or in a hooker’s bed. Rather, justice works out through an Attorney General, a special prosecutor, and a handful of honest politicians.

In this case, as it turned out, “the best and the brightest” of the Obama regime and the “best and the brightest” of the leftist media were no match for the singular brilliance of President Trump. His political enemies should have known that for the man who dealt for half a century with the union sharks and cutthroat politicians in New York City, as well as mob bosses on which the fictional Godfather dons were based, the D.C. swamp denizens were small potatoes.

A bloodless Baptism Scene – the principals…

Fuggedabout the fact that these slithery creatures are not honest, moral, ethical, or trustworthy—they are simply not that smart.

It is now clear that President Trump has beaten the Obama regime and the leftist media decisively. Over the next several months, we will see these reptilian putative criminals come to justice.

…and the small fry

And that is not to omit the 35 bottom-dwellers involved in the Russian-collusion hoax. Willis L. Krumholz spells out their roles in sordid detail. They include Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, Joseph Pientka, Bruce Ohr, Nellie Ohr, Christopher Steele, Loretta Lynch, Victoria Nuland, Glenn Simpson, on an on—all in obsequious service to the Obama regime.

Not to forget Samantha Power, Obama’s Ambassador to the rancid United Nations. Former South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy called her “the largest unmasker of U.S. persons in our country’s history.” Don’t forget her ignominious and possibly criminal role in asking to reveal the identity of Gen. Michael Flynn in classified intelligence reports seven times between Election Day 2016 and the inauguration of President Trump on Jan. 20, 2017. Yet she testified later of having “no recollection” of the requests, as Miranda Devine reports in The New York Post.

After this bloodless baptism scene, the Obama administration will at last be transparent.

Barack Obama at the top

Let us remember that the fish always stinks from the head. It now appears that this dishonorable cabal took orders from Barack Obama and those who financed his own peculiar—indeed fishy—rise to power. And those who participated in the crashingly failed attempts to destroy the Trump presidency—the Russian-collusion hoax, the Stormy Daniels hoax, the Ukraine hoax, the impeachment hoax, the leaking, the lying, the spying, and the media whores who to this day cover for Obama’s many failures and scandals—including this one, Obamagate—are now on the threshold of paying the piper, so to speak.

It may be true that the wheels of justice move slowly. But right now they are moving in the right direction. They move in the direction of identifying and hopefully indicting and imprisoning the already-disgraced people who participated for the past four years in undermining and trying to destroy a duly elected President of the United States.

Gitmo, anyone!
