A quick commentary on the difference between having a good administrator and not
I’m not surprised to hear a politician say anything at allTrump Lawyer Michael van der Veen to Lana Zak of CBS
Now that Donald Trump has been acquitted in yet another impeachment trial I expect to hear the media, the left and the Democrats continue to make broad declarations as to the horrible, HORRIBLE things he said and did on January sixth 2021. They’ll be stories with anonymous sources, various pols making loud statements and all kind of shocked SHOCKING claims to be made.
When you hear them remember this quote from yes minister about such statements.
PM James Hacker: (On Phone): No, no, leave me out of it. A routine visit. (Listening) All right – a routine surprise visit. (Listening) Well, say they were invited earlier, but the NATO exercise got in the way. Now they’re not needed, they’re going anyway. (Listening) All right. Nobody knows it’s not true. Press statements aren’t delivered under oath.
Yes Prime Minister A Victory for Democracy 1986
and then remember this quote from the movie Class Action:
Jedediah Tucker Ward: It’s not hypothetical to Dr. Pavel, he wrote it
Michael Grazier: So he says.
Jedediah Tucker Ward: So he says under oathClass Action 1991
Of course none of this should surprise anyone since it was the same cost benefit analyses that happened during the Russia probe when wild things were claimed in public about evidence but the opposite was said in classified testimony under oath
So when someone in print or on TV or online or even in casual conversation talks about how horrible the GOP was for not convicting Trump remind them that the Democrats forced and won a vote to call witnesses at the 2nd Trump impeachment trial and then decided not to call a single one of those witness who had written these stories, made those statements or appeared on TV to make claims about Donald Trump to repeat them under oath.
Yesterday’s acquittal of the president making him, as the Babylon Bee puts it “The most acquitted president in history“, was amusing in several ways.
The complete meltdown of the left on twitter was satisfying. I haven’t seen them this angry since Tom Brady won the superbowl last week.
Mitch McConnell’s speech against Trump, while annoying and to some degree anger was also amusing in the sense that he laid a trap for Democrats to pursue the President in a court of law. A trap that would likely bring out a lot of evidence that the left and the democrats don’t want to see the light of day.
But the best part and most amusing of the day had to be the sudden of Democrat House impeachment managers, realizing that their case had fallen apart push for a vote on calling witnesses something that was thought to be previously settled.
Remember these are the same guys who rushed an impeachment vote through, without hearings, without evidence and without thought and then sat on it.
The Democrats got their vote and managed to when that had already been settled, Collins, Murkowski, Sasse, Romney all voted for witnesses and at that point Lindsey Graham decided to change is vote to support witnesses and made it clear there were several he wanted to call.
And that’s when the fun began.
The first problem was the rules that state that witnesses have to be deposed before they appear in the Senate which would mean a long delay, but since the senate had pretty much thrown the constitution out the window by having this proceeding it likely wouldn’t have been too much of a stretch to have a vote to fudge that.
No the real kicker was this. It was made clear that if witnesses being called several Democrat lawmakers including Nancy Pelosi would be called by the Trump team and would have answer questions under oath.
Now if there is one thing that Democrats were more afraid of than the prospect of having election fraud cases being ruled on their merits rather than on procedural grounds it’s having Democrat office holders having to testify under oath and having that testimony being part of the public record.
Once it became clear that would be the case the shine which had so excited the left (take a look at some of the tweet at this Breitbart post) particularly from media who had just said how afraid the GOP was of witnesses. How could this be? How could they cave? What is going on?
This is the problem with living in a bubble, you actually start to believe your own press releases
The anger on the acquittal was one thing, we all expected this but for them to win on a witness vote and then once getting the win watching them run for their dear lives…
Given that massive failures already taking place in the Biden Administration the media/left likely could use a prolonged impeachment to distract from what is going on with the economy, with jobs, with schools, with the border, with Iran, etc etc etc. Weeks of people speculating on witnesses, what they are saying who is going to be called, how much time for depositions and the ever present possibility of getting Donald Trump to say something anything out of turn so they could cover that rather than spinning or ignoring Biden crashing and burning would have been invaluable.
Think how damaging the potential testimony of Democrat officials oath must have been for they guys to throw this distraction away?
It was obvious to me as I watched it unfold live on TV that there was a lot that was not right about the rioting that took place at the US Capitol on January 6th. The nature of the US Capitol violence seemed so contrived and it seemed that is was so divorced from the massive peaceful protest that bore all of hallmarks of a true MAGA protest.
The nature of the violence and the nature the more colorful characters on video leading the way and committing most of the violence seemed much more appropriate for an ANTIFA or a Black Lives Matters riot than a MAGA rally.
It made no sense that such a small group would break away from the rest and storm what was supposed to be one of the most secure buildings in the country. It made no sense that the US Capitol Building could be so easily stormed period yet alone from such a small group. Nothing made sense until I started seeing the following articles indicating that the whole incident was a setup.
Based on what I saw and read, I have no doubt that dozens and possibly even hundreds of Antifa and/or other provocateurs had infiltrated the rally in order to carry out violent acts and suck impressionable Trump supporters into their antics. None of this violence was justified, but contrast the frustration and conflicted attitude of this Capitol building trespasser with that of the proud of this BLM rioter. One calls for prayer while the other calls for “reparations.”
Some of the more impulsive Trump supporters fell into a trap that served to scapegoat both the Trump administration and the 99.9% of rally participants who neither condoned nor participated in any of the violence.
First, to state the obvious, there is no question that Trump-supporters criminally entered the Capitol and behaved abominably. All who breached the inadequate protective perimeter must be prosecuted to the full measure of the law. Throw the book at them!
But there are grounds for suspicion that provocateurs, anxious to discredit Trump, his supporters, conservatives, and those who question the integrity of the presidential vote may have been the point of the spear in violently attacking the Capitol.
What happened at the Capitol building on Wednesday, to my eyes, obviously was a stratagem to destroy the president’s popularity and support and overshadow the challenges to the Electoral College vote. The building was breached at the beginning of that process and riveted the media news feeds. Members of Congress were evacuated with hoods over their heads as if they were in grave danger.
As a group of protesters approached the building, a policeman removed the barricade and appeared to invite them in.
That group entered the rotunda peacefully and stayed behind the rope line. Those who observed this noted that there were several instigators embedded among the crowd. They were using bullhorns to agitate and move people. A couple of them set off flash bangs.
We now know that several known Antifa activists were among the agitators. As they broke windows, Trump-supporters tried to stop them. But the distraction worked, frightened the pathetically spineless Republicans who were set to challenge the stolen election. They quickly capitulated, and Biden was certified. The Republicans, even the ones we thought had grit, got rolled.
As I read each of the articles I was continuously reminded of the scene from the final Hunger Games movie. which I shared at the beginning of the article. If you have not read the Hunger Games novels I strongly recommend you do so. They have an very libertarian message. They are about a successful rebellion against an extremely powerful and oppressive central government led by President Snow.
When the main character, Katniss Everdeen, and the rebel forces make it to the presidential mansion they notice that it is surrounded by pens containing capitol children serving as human shields for the president. Out of nowhere a capitol hovercraft appears and drops bombs on the pens of capitol children. At that point the remaining capitol forces abandon President Snow, ending the war.
As you can see from the scene I shared, President Snow informs Katniss that the head of the rebellion, President Coin, is the person who actually ordered a disguised hovercraft to bomb the capitol children as a ploy to break the will of the remaining capitol forces, ending the war.
I believed that the riot at the US Capitol was the same sort of political ploy by leftists to discredit President Trump and his supporter, just like the authors of the articles I shared here earlier, and the authors of so may other articles I have read on the subject. I am no conspiracy theorist, I am just the opposite. I am someone who has studied a great deal of history. Similar tactics have been used by leftists over and over again. The Germans during World War II and the Soviets both used that type of tactic.

Okay, I admit, the headline is provocative, and absolutely click-baity. But stay with me here. In two weeks the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump will begin. Presidents of course can be impeached by the House and removed from office for committing “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
There’s just one obvious problem here. On Wednesday Joe Biden was sworn in as Trump’s successor.
Last year on his Cabinet of Curiousities podcast Aaron Mahnke spoke of a “particularly dark and corrupt moment in the church’s past,” the Catholic church that is. That moment was the trial of Pope Formosus in 897.
The Holy Father was accused of a grab bag of crimes, including perjury, seeking to be the bishop of more than one jurisdiction, and coveting the papacy. Because he was unable to speak in his defense, a deacon was appointed for that task. Formosus was found guilty, he had three middle fingers cut off–the fingers used for blessings–and buried in an obscure cemetery not befitting the Bishop of Rome. His body was quickly exhumed and then dumped in the Tiber River.
If the prior paragraph doesn’t make complete sense it’s because Formosus, after a five-year papacy, died in 896. His successor was pope for just two weeks, the next pope was Stephen VI, an enemy of Formosus. He called for what historians label the cadaver synod. Stephen ordered the first exhumation of Formosus. His corpse was then dressed in papal robes, propped on a chair, and the conviction process began as there was certainly no doubt of the verdict, despite an earthquake during the trial that might have elicited a few doubts among Vatican officials.
Just as the guilty verdict of Formosus was set twelve centuries ago, so was the House of Representatives’ vote to impeach Trump a second time, just one week before the end of his term. Trump’s chances for an acquittal in the Senate are much better. In essence, the second impeachment process against Trump is his cadaver synod. It’s about making a political statement and playing to the base.
The justifications for the second impeachment from Democrats vary, but the primary goal seems to be preventing the former president from seeking another term in 2024. Another reason for impeaching and removing Trump from office, now moot, was that he possessed the nuclear strike codes. After the first Trump impeachment, House speaker Nancy Pelosi, knowing that the odds of the Senate voting to convict Trump were remote, called the lower chamber’s vote “an impeachment that will last forever.” Presumably this will be a second impeachment that will last forever. Oh, and it’s a splendid way for Pelosi and the Democrats to tar the Republican brand.
A third run for the White House, in my opinion, is unlikely for Trump. The former president will be 78 in 2024; yes, that is the same age as Biden, who is clearly an old 78. Three years is a long time for people in their 70s. And in the last 100 years no president who was defeated in a reelection attempt has tried to regain the White House. Only one, Gerald Ford, has seriously considered it. And Trump, again in my opinion, damaged his brand in the last weeks of his presidency by his slowness to condede defeat, his hostile phone call to the Georgia secretary of state asking him to change the election results there, and the riot at the Capitol–which by the way the president did not incite. And the riot, the destructive work of about 1,000 conspirary theorists and other screwballs, was not an insurrection. While Trump is a clearly a unique politician, political moods change. In 1980 Americans weren’t clamoring for Gerald Ford–they wanted Ronald Reagan.
The Trump cadaver synod is a two-minute hate for Democrat politicians and a way, perhaps for the final time, to fill their campaign funds in the name of Trump, and a hate that is being cheered on by the anti-Trump media, who will soon see a drop in readers and viewers now that their enemy is out of office.
In other words Impeachment Part Two is a waste of time.
As for Formosus, his body was recovered by a monk and buried–for the last time–in St Peter’s Basilica. His accuser, Stephen VI, was pope for little more than a year. After the cadaver synod Stephen was imprisoned and then strangled to death.
As for voters, a much more civil revenge will be to return the GOP to majorities in both houses of Congress.

I’m not a fan of killing babies. There is just something so inherently wrong with taking a small, innocent child and murdering them in cold blood. Maybe its my Catholic upbringing. Maybe its my experience fighting so hard to keep a kid, only to lose them after heart surgery. Maybe its because I actually enjoy (most) of the time with my kids. Or maybe its a combination of all these things and more. I don’t really know. But murdering young babies, including unborn ones, is pretty awful.
Murdering babies is so awful that its pretty high on my list of “things I care about when I vote for someone.” Other things high up on the list include not infringing on gun ownership, insisting on following the rule of law, and avoiding dumb overseas conflicts while stepping in when needed to maintain good international order when needed. There is a lot in the middle. For example, I can be persuaded on different economic models, so if one is a bit more “left leaning,” but it has some data behind it, I can be talked into setting down my Ayn Rand novel and trying something new.
I’ve had this world view for quite some time, and then Donald Trump became President. Increasingly, when asked how I could ever vote for such a vile human being, I would find myself saying “I know he’s not a nice guy, but…” Recently, my wife almost had the same argument with a friend, who challenged her on her views on abortion. My wife had written a long response, including the obligatory “I don’t like Donald Trump either, but I agree with his views on abortion.”
When I read that, something clicked in my brain, and I asked out loud “Why do we feel we have to defend Donald Trump’s personal life?”
I’m not related to Donald Trump, nor do I have any control or influence over his decisions. As a politician, I voted for him ONLY based on his positions aligning with my own on a variety of matters. That’s it. His personal life doesn’t mean anything to me. Neither did any previous President’s life.
Almost every politician engages in some ugly behavior, and the ones that don’t seem to simply don’t get caught or highlighted by the media. John McCain dumped his wife for a younger, prettier gal. Joe Biden swam nude around female Secret Service agents and can’t seem to keep his hands to himself. Plenty of elected officials engage in insider trading and abuse their elected position for money. I’m opposed to all this behavior, and it disgusts me when I see it. I’m also not voting for these people to spend time around my kids. I’m voting for them to advocate and legislate for the policies that I agree with, which will cause me to vote for people I don’t like personally.
That vote doesn’t mean I have to defend their personal decisions. After reading my wife’s response, I recommended she take out all the defense of Donald Trump and simply ask “Why are you claiming to be a Christian and yet think its OK to kill unborn children?” Because, really, that’s what it is about.
The next time you hear yourself saying “I don’t like Donald Trump’s tweets/behavior/rhetoric/bombastic nature/etc.” stop yourself. Stop defending Donald Trump’s behavior. It’s not your job to do so. Stay focused on why him, or any other elected official, earned your vote in the first place.

With the ratification of the Constitution the United States became a Constitutional Republic. Under that form of government the Constitution was the supreme law of the land, As a Constitutional Republic the United States enjoyed more than 200 years as the freest and most prosperous nation that ever existed. That all came to on end on January 6th when the fraudulent election of Joe Biden was certified by a joint session of the United States Congress. There are many safeguards built into the United States Constitution that were meant to prevent the fraudulent election of president. All of those safeguards were ignored by a plethora of corrupt or cowardly politicians. With that the Constitutional Republic known as the the United States died. It will most likely be replaced by a socialist democracy bearing the same name.
Our Constitutional Republic died because a gaggle of corrupt Democratic politicians and election officials in Democrat cities in six states decided that they would work very hard to steal the presidential election for Joe Biden. These thieves were aided by the corrupt Democrat propaganda arm known as the mainstream media, their fascist thugs that crush descent by silencing conservatives on the social media sites that they control, and the company who made the voting machines. If you do not believe the election was stolen I strongly recommend you augment the websites you get your news from with websites that actually report the news accurately.
Our Constitutional Republic died because the Republican legislatures who controlled, I believe five out of the six of the stolen states, certified the fraudulent election results. In most cases they failed to investigate the widespread fraud.
Our Constitutional Republic died because the judicial branch on the state and federal level failed to do its constitutional duty when faced with an obviously fraudulent election. For too many decades courts all across the Untied States have been packed with partisan hacks instead of jurists. Liberal partisan hacks are by far the worst.
Our Constitutional Republic died because the Republican party is made up of far too many cowards who almost never do the right thing. Their cowardly behavior was on full display during the joint session of congress where only seven Republican Senators voted against certifying the fraud and about a hundred or so in the House.
Our Constitutional Republic died because the Supreme Court failed to carry out its constitutionally mandated duty regarding fraudulent elections. They chose to dismiss the election fraud cases on technicalities. The three Trump appointed justices displayed a remarkable amount of cowardice.
Our Constitutional Republic died because we allowed progressives to take over our colleges and universities. For far too many decades college students were brainwashed into hating our Constitution. Far too few of us understand what a remarkable gift that document is, or understand the true meaning of any of its clauses..
Our Constitutional Republic died because civics is no longer taught in our grade schools and high schools. It was replaced by progressive indoctrination known as social studies.
Our Constitutional Republic died because we the people chose not to do anything about the rampant election fraud. We allowed our elected officials to do nothing to stop it. We allowed ourselves to be locked down and cower in silence because of fear over the Coronavirus. There is so much we the people could have done non violently to stop the fraud. Far too few of us acted in any meaningful manner.
Over the past many decades both parties have almost completely ignored the Constitution, although the Democrats were the worst. Now that the Progressives are in full control of the presidency and both houses of congress they will dismantle all remaining vestiges of constitutional restraint. Because they got away with the theft they will do it over and over again. They will incorporate the election fraud into federal election law. They will eliminate the filibuster and stack the Supreme Court with the most liberal justices.
This looks so familar
I remember the day after the Billy Bush tape dropped when all started running away, people falling for the MSM meme, on that day I wrote a post titled: I double down and re-endorse Donald Trump for President of the United States.
Now as more facts come out and it looks more and more like a lot of what is being said about events in DC from the media is false and people seeking power and position are reacting to ingratiate themselves with the new administration and with the democrat/left/tech fascists’ who demand silence or else, contrary to all that America stand for but consistant with their Communist paymasters.
Thus the time has come one again to say it aloud:
I’m with Trump.
I’m with Trump because he was with me. He improved the economy, he fought for life, he fought for Israel, brought peace to the middle east, made us energy self sufficient and fought for what was right. Yeah he was loud and carried himself with braggadocio but he literally took the wish list of conservatives like myself that republicans have promised for decades and took it seriously doing his best to fill it. You have to go back to President James Knox Polk to find a President who has come close to doing all that he promised.
It’s also personal for me. I was and still am a Ted Cruz guy. I would support Cruz in a heartbeat for president. I came to Trump reluctantly as the only alternative to Clinton.
After 8 years of Obama from which I had fallen from a good high paying job with excellent benefits usually working from home on the day he was elected to a 3rd shift temp job with no benefits making less that half of what I was making before the election. I had very little to lose by voting Trump
After four years of Trump I’m still underemployed but I’m at a full time job with excellent benefits and while I’m only at 65% of the rate I was making when Obama was elected I’m trending up.
Meanwhile both my sons, one college educated one not have during the Trump years gotten good paying jobs with excellent benefits and even my wife pay situation has improved.
I’m not alone in this:
In fact, his presidency saw something extraordinary, even if it was all but invisible from the country’s globalized cities: the first egalitarian boom since well back into the twentieth century. In 2019, the last non-Covid year, he presided over an average 3.7 percent unemployment rate and 4.7 percent wage growth among the lowest quartile of earners. All income brackets increased their take. That had happened in the last three Obama years, too. The difference is that in the Obama part of the boom, the income of the top decile rose by 20 percent, with tiny gains for other groups. In the Trump economy, the distribution was different. Net worth of the top 10 percent rose only marginally, while that of all other groups vaulted ahead. In 2019, the share of overall earnings going to the bottom 90 percent of earners rose for the first time in a decade.
As Glenn Reynolds put it at the time “Democrats have a plan to fix that“.
That President Trump did this is remarkable. That he did this with all of DC all of Hollywood, all of Academia and all of media trying to destroy him makes it nothing short of incredible.
In short Donald Trump has earned my support and my loyalty & he’s going to get it.
Does that mean I’ll be supporting him in 2024? That depends. If there is a primary then I’ll see who is there and decide at that time. After all I was a Santorum man in 2012 but I went with Cruz, not because I didn’t like Santorum but because I thought Ted was a better choice. Cruz remains the only person who is guaranteed to get my support ahead of Trump if he runs anyone else I’ll have to judge at the time, but if President Trump is the GOP nominee I’ll have no problem supporting him and if the GOP nominates a Romney or a Romney lite and Trump goes 3rd party, then he’ll almost certainly get my support as well.
So I’m with Trump, I remain with Trump and if it means some people stop reading or some people have bad things to say about me or I face retaliation, so be it.
I expect nothing but trouble for this, both from individuals and from the incoming administration, in fact despite being a minor blogger with a small following I expect retaliation for expressing these views in public.
But I was born into an America where speech was still free and people were unafraid to speak their minds and I’m too old and too Christian to marry myself to a life of lies and fear.
You don’t have to be with Trump if you don’t want to. It’s a free country and as far as I’m concerned people have the right to be wrong, but as for me I’m with Trump
If you don’t like it, tough.
Thanks to many decades of progressive indoctrination an alarming number of Americans mistakenly believe those individuals holding political office or occupying some government bureaucratic positions are the lords and masters over the entire population. The level and wide spread nature of ignorance regarding this most fundamental principle would shock the founding fathers of the United States.
Control over the governmental by the people was one of the most important founding concepts of this nation. That concept is enshrined in the Preamble of our Constitution:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Because We the People created this nation we are in charge. When we hold elections we do not choose rulers we choose elected officials who are our political servants. Elected officials we have sent to the United States Senate and House of Representatives have ignored the will of the people and the Constitution for decades yet we keep reelecting these individuals and when we do elect someone new they exercise the same bad behaviors as incumbents.
Our elected officials have created a gigantic federal bureaucracy and given that unconstitutional leviathan enormous amounts of power over every aspect of our lives.
None of this is right yet we do nothing about it. The Declaration of Independence states quite clearly that We the People of the United States have every right to fix everything that is wrong with the federal government.
We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.
We are now in the middle of our most severe constitutional crises since the Civil War thanks to the concerted effort by Democrats in six State to steal the Presidential election from President Trump. So far all efforts to set things right so far have failed because all efforts have relied on some level of government. Because the election is in the process of being stolen for Joe Biden, he will not have the consent of the governed. We the people have every right to make sure the rightful president is ultimately inaugurated.
Democrat and RINO governors are placing all residents of their states under house arrest and shuttering businesses across their states in the name of fighting Coronavirus. These extremely harsh measures violate the constitutions of the states and are not supported by any form of science. These measures are best challenged on the state level.
The Constitution of Massachusetts states quite clearly that we the people of this state are the absolute bosses here.
Article V. All power residing originally in the people, and being derived from them, the several magistrates and officers of government, vested with authority, whether legislative, executive, or judicial, are their substitutes and agents, and are at all times accountable
The Constitution of Massachusetts states clearly also that we have every right to take charge and reform our state government if it becomes abusive to us, which it clearly is right now.
Article VII. Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity and happiness of the people; and not for the profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men: Therefore the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity and happiness require it.
Martin Luther King Jr. and Gandhi proved that mass nonviolent civil disobedience is by far the most effective means of dealing with any form of government injustice.
As every day passes it appears more likely that the Democrats will succeed in their theft of the presidency for Joe Biden. By all appearances, all that stands in the way of the theft being successful are the Republicans in the US House and the US Senate, where Vice President Pence will play a major role. It is a long shot considering how spineless the Republicans in the State legislatures have proved to be in handling the election theft and how spineless the establishment Republicans in Washington DC have proved to be time and again.
On January 6th the electoral votes will be counted during a joint session of the US Congress. Thankfully seven states, including all six of the disputed states sent both Republican and Democrat electors so there is a slim hope.
The Supreme Court completely failed the American People and the Constitution when they failed to even hear the case brought by the State of Texas, and many similar cases. The Judicial branch on the federal and state level has done nothing to stop this outrageous theft. It has been widely reported that the Supreme Court failed to take up the Texas case because Justice Roberts feared Left wing rioting and bullied the Trump appointed justices into going along with him. If that is true they failed the Constitution and the American people because of their cowardice.
If Joe Biden is illegitimately awarded the presidency that will sound the death Nell of our Constitutional Republic, especially if the Democrats win the two Georgia Senate races. The Democrats have demonstrated a remarkable loathing for the American Constitution, most notably the First and Second Amendment, and all restraints on federal government power. The Democrats have informed us that they will stack the Supreme Court with liberal justices and do away with the Filibuster.
The Democrats will be so emboldened if they succeed in stealing the election that they will attempt the same outrageous behavior in every succeeding election so that Republicans will hardly win any future elections. The Democrats will make sure that all of the dirty tricks they used this time will become institutionalized in federal election law.
The American people are the only line of defense truly left to prevent the theft of the election. There is a massive rally scheduled in Washington DC on January 6th. This rally better be the largest and most passionate rally that ever took place. It better be so massive that it puts the fear of God into the members of congress and stops all business in Washington DC for many days. Similar rallies across this country will be needed.
I fear that this theft of the election, if it comes to pass, will result in violence. Theft of an election is in fact a coup. Will every single one of the tens of millions of passionate Trump supporters simply step aside and let this theft happen? So far Trump supporters have proved to be far less violent than those on the left. Will that continue if Biden is inaugurated? No one truly knows the answers to these questions. I’ve heard a lot of rumblings on social media, and also a lot of open talk.
If the worst comes to pass in the form of an open civil war it will be the fault of the Democrats who succeeded in stealing the election, the Supreme Court who failed to do their duty, and spineless Republicans who failed to do what is right.
