Former General and convicted felon Mike Flynn is advocating overthrow of our government by the outgoing loser president, and the loser president says he likes that advice, is considering it.
Why are they not BOTH in Guantanamo awaiting trial by military tribunal right this minute?
When will the world learn that you cannot appease a dictator even if the only alternative is war?
When Hitler took over the German government and passed the Enabling Acts the isles of the Bundestag were lined with Brownshirts to make sure the Nazi minority party "won" the vote to turn Germany into a dictatorship. When the would be dictator this time is trying to use the courts, and if that fails, and it has already, the next step is force.
On another note, russia has been in our most sensitive government and corporate databases for almost a year now, mining them for everything they can, doing untold damage, and act of war by any standards, and they did it so easily it is almost as if they had the passwords to get in. How did Trump's government not know about this? Or did they not know at all, perhaps they have known, perhaps they have invited the russians in and covered for them. After all by March when this allegedly started it was already pretty clear Trump was not going to win.
Donald Trump is the biggest threat this nation has ever known. He intentionally botched the Covid response and even called for the widest possible intentional infection via our own kids, he tanked the economy and in four years added over $8 trillion to the national debt, any claim that he ran even a half decent economy which he inherited from Obama is patently false, you too could have run just as good or better of an economy if you could create more than $2 trillion per year out of thin air. Reminder, Obama started his presidency stuck with Bush's final year budget of $1.2 trillion deficit and a global financial collapse. At the time that was a record year for new debt, he finished 8 years later with a deficit between 5 and 600 billion. Trump has added more debt to your bill in 4 years than Obama did in 8 years.
Putin loves this of course since the USA basically killed of the old Soviet Union which Putin so loved, by bankrupting it. He has always been crystal clear about his desire for revenge on the US by crippling us, causing our own collapse, and one of his plans was the great irony of bankrupting the wealthiest nation on the globe. I would say he has succeeded. Whether or not it kills us the way we took down the Soviets is not yet clear, but we cannot survive the onslaught of debt, intentionally mismanaged economy, wildfire pandemic, also intentionally mismanaged, and an election that went as well as possibly can go yet is being screamed from every idiot as rigged, with lost faith in our democratic institutions, our voting, our courts, and our rule of law. All aided and abetted by Moscow Mitch and his GOP that are now prisoner to wild fanatics who are no longer sane.
I would say this will not end well, but it already has not ended well.
I would say I told you so and I did for many years, remember? I left the USA for Australia the week before he was sworn in saying that it would come to this and worse, finally settled in Ireland where I warned this would come when he was in office no more than 4 months.
Now, we play like our duly elected President Elect will make it all better in a month when he is sworn in. I have bad news for you, he will not be sworn in and is likely going to be arrested and held incognito by Trump because Trump himself has said he is going to be sworn in for a second term (a permanent term at that). You did not believe me then, so I wonder if you are starting to believe me now, or at least believe Trump.
All he needs to pull it off is the help of sympathetic forces in our military who will follow his orders, and they in turn will arrest those who refuse for mutiny. If he needs them he also would have russian forces he can call upon to maintain order at gunpoint in the cities, which are mostly blue anyway. Only once there are russian boots on the ground with guns pointed at Americans they are going to be following Putin's orders not Trumps, the take over of the US will be complete.
I have a Casandra Complex about it all and hate to bear bad news, but all you have to do when it comes to Donald Trump is imagine the worst possible outcomes and bingo, you will be right, well half right because it will always actually be worse than you could have imagined.
This is why I have my EU/Irish passport handy at all times and the address to the nearest Irish consulate in my glovebox, along with enough cash to get there. Because when the USA ends I am not going to fight, I am too old and I know that battling 40 million insane Nazis is not a winning proposition. Especially when they are backed by 80 million apathetic non voters who just don't care.
