Yeah, right. Oh, excuse me. It was supposed to be “Only the best people”. At what? Being dyed in the wool traitors? Straight off-the-shelf lunatics? Or would you prefer white supremacists or white nationalists? Maybe card-carrying Russian trolls? Ye gods and little fishes, folks, we have a sampling of all of the above and probably some more despicable types thrown in there. No screenplay writers back in the days of McGovern could have possibly come up with such a cast of nasty people willing to try to take down our government and our country in just four years time.
But damned if Putin and that board at the National Council for Policy that Ginni Thomas is a part of didn’t come within a gnat’s eyelash of doing it. (Makes me think of that “cabal” on Blacklist that went after Reddington. Scary folks.) (You also have to be a member of The Federalist Society and a graduate of a certain elite law school to be a member.)
On July 21, we will have the 8th televised hearing of the House Select Committee for the Investigation of the January 6 Events/Riots. The steady drumbeat of evidence has come almost entirely from Republican sources and witnesses. The timeline and steady flow of information is painting a portrait of a desperate, ambitious, determined individual who had laid all this out with numerous individuals who had allied themselves with him for their own reasons over a period of months prior to the actual happening. He almost certainly knew that there was a good probability that he would lose the election in January 2020 and he began to plan this then.
He even began talking about how the “election would be rigged” to start preparing his base to fall in behind his plan that far in advance. He already had ties to the Proud Boys, 3%ers, and various white nationalist groups through Bannon, Gorka, and Miller. He would need to convince various members of Congress, but they fell in line, too. If only he could convince his Vice President to follow the script.
The swing states fell through on throwing the Electoral College over his way. Why did there have to be ETHICAL people? It would be so easy if people would just do what they were told like his friends’ Putin’s and Un’s people did. If they didn’t, they just disappeared and more amenable people took their place. Why does the USA have to be so difficult?
Thank God we are that difficult. We are supposed to be difficult. Our system of government has checks and balances to keep people like Donald Trump from assuming total control. Governing is not supposed to be simple. It should not be. Ambitious, cruel, sick men like Trump should never happen. We are going to have to strengthen our control systems.
I want to be part of that solution. I want to help devise a way to keep nasty people like him and the people who nearly overturned our government out of politics. Will you help me by voting for me on Nov. 8?
