The Law and Order President Encourages a Wild Protest

Mish

Trump asks you to be at a wild protest in DC.

"Wild Protest Be There"

"Statistically impossible to have lost the 2020 Election. Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!"

No Evidence, Just Claims

Fox News Discusses the Tweet in Trump promises 'wild' protest in DC on Jan. 6, the day Congress to count electoral votes

On Saturday, Trump linked to a report by Peter Navarro that claims without evidence that the amount of election fraud was sufficient to swing the election.  

Some Trump allies have planned to call for a debate in the House when the election results are received. However, those plans were dealt a blow when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell asked his Republican colleagues in the Senate not to contest the election results on Jan. 6, when a joint session of Congress formally accepts the count.

After McConnell recognized Biden as president-elect in a Tuesday speech on the floor of the Senate, Trump responded by calling on him and other Republicans to "get tougher."

".@senatemajldr and Republican Senators have to get tougher, or you won’t have a Republican Party anymore. We won the Presidential Election, by a lot. FIGHT FOR IT. Don’t let them take it away!" Trump charged on Twitter.

Trump, who lost by more than 7 million votes, has also taken aim at a number of other Republicans over their stance on the election -- including Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo.

Law and Order

Stand Up For Law and Order

The Law and Order President now seeks a "Wild Protest" and want you to partake in it. 

All because he refuses to admit the obvious. 

Liar of the Year

I nominate Trump for the liar of the year award.

He sounds worse than Hillary who blamed Russia and anyone and everyone but herself.

The Kraken submitted this statistical evidence to the courts where it quickly went no where. Remember SPYDER? Well Republican appointed judges were too smart so Trump decided to target social media and his followers.

Not totally unrelated but Lou Dobbs had a very unusual segment where he debunked every false claim against one of the voting software companies and the Whitehouse legal team instructed all parties to preserve documents. I guess people have had enough of Trump's conspiracy theories involving Hugo Chavez and George Soros

Hey Mish.
I used to enjoy reading your blog. But Your name calling and irrational hatred of Trump has turned me and many of your readers off. Trump has his faults but so do you. An objective commentary is much appreciated, your hyperemotional diatribe is not.

Trump is going to end up encouraging a psycho or two to show up at the inaugural to do violence. The madness needs to end!

The crazy thing is that even when a judge is willing to get past technicalities and let Trump’s lawyers argue fraud in court, they simply won’t do it - even while claiming fraud from every rooftop - everywhere except for in court:

Interesting paradox here: Trump is a concomitant liar.....and he's the only one telling the truth.

Jojo

The easiest way to shut Trump up is to prosecute him for the many crimes he has committed or participated in and throw his sorry ass in jail.

Joe Biden said during the campaign that he would not pardon Trump. I’m hoping that Biden doesn’t try and weasel out of this promise.

Biden pledges not to pardon Trump
The former vice president described the president’s actions as a “prostitution” of his office.

@Mish As someone who finds Trump-speak easy to understand and who is amused by those who either can not or will not understand Trump-speak, this seems to be yet another Trump-speak thing.

There is a big difference between "Be there, will be wild" and "wild protest". The former is "wild" in the sense of a fun-loving family's upcoming get-together at the lake. The latter ... well, golly-gee-willikers, the easily suggestible of us near DC can go loot some stores!

Now, let's just put on our thinking caps, here, and take a wild guess which of these meanings Trump meant.

I admit that I have TPS, but the only reason I can see for encouraging riots on 1/6/20 is to test his support for a coup.

Looks like Trump considering martial law. Is the Russian hack of government a bug or a feature ?

Lance Manly

Trump can bring the crazy like no other. Once he declares martial law, then Special Council Sydney Powel can get to the bottom of things. The national security advisor is participating in this crap? Maybe the whole Trump coup thing is not just for the tin foil hat crowd.

"According to the person familiar with Friday’s meeting, the animated gathering featured yelling and screaming, with the lawyers often accusing each other of failing to sufficiently support the president's efforts. Flynn and Powell both said they needed the Trump administration to do more to support their efforts to reverse President-elect Joe Biden's win. Giuliani and Powell also turned their ire on each other. The source said National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien, a successor to Flynn, participated by phone."

I find it hard to believe that the Cuch turned down the request

"Giuliani also has urged top Department of Homeland Security official Ken Cuccinelli to confiscate voting machines, a request Cuccinelli has turned down because he lack the authority to do so, according to a person familiar with the discussions."

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.

So the question is how does Trump pull off the coup? At least in the short run I can see it happening like this: Night of Jan 5: All house and senate leadership are detained by DHS. Day of Jan 6: DHS surrounds the Capitol and prevents any representatives, senators or their staff from entering.

From there, who knows!

Trump should become a televangelist and give up the president gig. He would make Steve Munsey look like a dunce when it comes to begging people to dig deep into their pockets and give to their savior.

The real takeaway here is not about Trump. It’s pretty clear he’s a dangerous demagogue.

The thing we should be looking at is the failure of our system of checks and balances....the Congress is a completely partisan body these days....that would only vote party line on any attempt to bring any such bad president to heel.

This is scarier to me....that we have an elite political class in charge that has lost its moral and ethical compass completely.

I have to give points to the judicial branch this time....they are doing what they’e supposed to do in these circumstances....but they lack the authority to do what should be done....which is.....that incompetent, harmful, self-serving autocrats should be tossed out on their asses.

Instead we have willing sycophants who are eager to subvert the truth, call for martial law, and generally do the kinds of things that have led to dictatorships in the past.

And we have millions of really delusional people willing to follow some idiot into who-knows-what of a future where every decision is based on how it might affect his popularity and re-election odds.

The Presidency wasn’t meant to be a popularity contest. It’s a difficult job that calls for true leadership....the ability to make the hard decisions, often on behalf of people who have the least power.....and to resist going down the path to war when the hawks are screaming for it......someone who is capable of making intelligent choices that might NOT be all that popular.

Trump is not going to pull this off.....I agree with those who say he’s too incompetent....but he has certainly shown the way it could be done....and he remains a threat...he will be a threat as long as he has a bully pulpit to stand on.

i suspect based on Trump's behavior if the voting were held today he'd get even fewer electoral votes. zero class or respect for the system. and using the challenges to grift off his base

Someone desperately needs to remind our elected senators and congressmen that they serve all citizens of their respective states and constituencies - not just the rich, their cronies and other members of their own respective parties. I fear the swamp will never be drained.

yes he is. there is so much evidence of fraud its baffling how the left can continue to deny it. its also very frustrating that the court cases they keep mocking and teasing as reference to say that they were dismissed because there was not evidence, is a lie as well. first, NOT all of those cases were from the Trump campaign. Most of them were filed on be half of citizens throughout the country and were dismissed because of technicalities/standing and NOT on merit. the same is said for trump campaign lawsuits. but now that we know Zuckerberg made illegal contributions that benefited the democrats, which paid for the election workers, judges, ballot boxes, etc. its no wonder they were being dismissed, they were bought out. also, if there's no widespread fraud, why is Biden and his attorneys fighting and blocking trump attorneys from doing a forensic analysis on the machines? if you have nothing to hide, then let them look at the evidence and stop stonewalling them.

I will say that i find it rather amusing how liberals claim that trump is a dictator, fascist or even hitler. yet nothing could be further from the truth. do you really think that if he was actually like that, that you all would be able to say the things you say about him and not a single thing would happen to you? NO. That would also mean that the msm would have to be state run, and we all know how much the msm hates trump. i mean, they are so biased and its been showing alot more lately. not one single msm has been broadcasting any of the election regularities hearings that had been taking place the last few months. not one. and yet, all that ridiculous bullshit that the left keep spewing of no evidence of any fraud, is coming right from the msm. you guys need to put down the CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and etc. they're brainwashing you. watch The Epoch Times, they're unbiased, uncensored and tell you the truth.

If I didn’t no better, I would say the best chance of Trump followers losing their guns is to start a bunch of protests / riots (I can promise you the media would have a 180 take on them compared to the lefts uprise this summer ) and if the protests gained steam nationally , the talk of Covid super spreading and confiscating their guns under emergency order may seem tempting to the deep state . Trump doesn’t care about you Republicans , he cares about his ego, winning and fame . Like most all politicians

In order to successfully have a coup, Trump doesn't need support of 50% of the people; 20-30% is more than enough, so long as they are the 20-30% with guns. Trump has carefully catered his message to that sub-group. He has support from the pro-guns crowd. He has support from the police. He has also worked for support from the military. He has replaced those at the top of the military and defense department who opposed the use the the military against US civilians, or who were perceived as not 100% loyal to him. The only real question is, how do the rank and file soldiers feel?

It is exactly right to look back to the riots of summer, but people are looking at them wrong. Instead of thinking about the Trump followers starting a bunch of riots on January 6th, think of the summer as a dry run. The goal of Trump followers will not be to start riots themselves, but rather to provoke others to start riots (as happened in Charlotte, for example), and to make them as widespread as possible. Trump has showed that it is possible to provoke people to riot, and to encourage them to continue rioting sufficiently that rioting grows more and more widespread.

I am confident that the military rank and file will not knowingly support a coup. However, if widespread rioting can be provoked, the military rank and file may feel that they are doing their duty to the country by helping to suppress it and to restore and maintain order. Thus, for Trump to have a successful coup, he needs to find a way to provoke widespread rioting, and do it without being seen as the one initiating it. The possibility can not be eliminated that he can accomplish that.
