#7480: Rumors, hearsay, and hope

Fervent hope, though the guy Vox is quoting has no more information than we do.
* Expect the emergency broadcast system to be activated. The FCC just recently released a memorandum speaking to the requirements under Federal law to send messages from the president to the public.
* Expect confusion. We are in a battle for our republic against elites that are attempting the very coup that they are accusing Trump of doing. In battle, there will be disinformation but know that plans are being fulfilled.
* Expect high profile arrests to take place over the next 12 days and at any time. You may wake one morning to find someone in high office is no longer there.
* Expect this to be a bumpy ride to the very end. This is not a television show where things are resolved in 45 minutes.
* Expect more bombshell evidence to be released between now and Jan. 20th.
* Expect some sort of internet blackout or outage....
* Expect Trump to be inaugurated on Jan 20th!
* Expect the executive order from 2018 and/or the Insurrection Act to be enacted. This DOES NOT mean martial law. Remember that we have been under a state of emergency since 2018 which gives the president many powers to act.
Someone, somewhere, pointed out that one of the requirements of the Insurrection Act is for the President to issue a proclamation to the insurgents telling them to "go home".

And what did he say? "We love you, but go home. Go home peacefully." (Paraphrased.) Twittle deleted the post almost immediately, but he made the announcement.

Vox Day is convinced that Trump is doing all this--waiting as long as he has--in order to let the real traitors show their true colors. They certainly have! Everyone from Pence down to the gangsters in congress...and I just can't get past the point that if they were confident of their victory they would not be trying to impeach him.

So I went to the link that Vox included in the post, and--and, it's another case where if even a minority of the assertions made there are true, it's mind-blowingly huge. Quoting one sentence will explain it. "I hereby call for the immediate arrest of Michael Richard Pence, 48th Vice President of the United States, for Treason."

The link that Vox includes in his post goes to an open letter, which has three links in it, and that sentence appears in the third link. It is necessary to read all three of them, in order, to understand why this guy is calling for Pence to be arrested for treason.

And almost certainly we are not actually going to hear about people being arrested in Washington, D.C., unless the press can spin it as "Trump has seized total control of the United States!" The Democrat-media complex (DMC) has already labeled a peaceful protest as "insurrection" and Nancy Pelosi has committed an act of treason (or at least sedition) in trying to usurp the chain of command.

Let's face it: no one told me that the fall of the United States was going to be entertaining, but the hysterical shrieking from the DMC reveals how frightened they are, and I find that a wonderful thing to behold. They're not afraid of Trump fomenting insurrection and illegally hanging on to power; they're afraid of the failure of their attempted coup, and having to face the consequences for all the laws they've broken over the years.

Pelosi's call to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff was ostensibly made because she's afraid Trump will nuke someone. This is projection, as always, because that's what she'd do if her shit was being fricasseed on live TV. But what I think what she was actually doing was trying to subvert the chain of command, to get the military leaders to refuse to support Trump, or to remove him from government. She was, in fact, trying to incite a military coup, which is sedition.

...and probably treason, as well, because if I'm right, there are foreign governments' hands all over this shit.

"Italian affidavit," is what I'm saying.

Why are they scared, though, with a scant 10 days left of the Trump administration?

The answer can be found here.
Trump has a duty to defend the country against enemies both foreign and domestic. I'm convinced that, in order to do so, Trump will hand off the presidency to a Military Tribunal, as a result of what has now emerged. When the Tribunals are over, they will hand the presidency back to Trump, as we all know he was the rightful, truthful winner.

They're terrified, and this is why they're rushing to cross red line after red line, after committing to the fraud they all knew was fraud on the night and into the wee hours of the morning on the 6th and 7th. They sealed their fate with that certification.

Nothing else explains everything we're seeing so far; the panic, the scramble, the utter fear in their eyes.

Because nothing can stop what is coming. NOTHING.

And they're all about to learn that the hard way.
And then there's this tidbit:
And remember, in the case of high treason, Military Intelligence takes over all the 3 letter agency investigations and doesn't answer to congress. That means all those FBI cases that their forever quislings have always squashed at the top are going to be active and prosecuted. Chain of Command directly from the President is a wonderful thing.
There's a saying: if you're innocent, you're better off before a military court. If you're guilty, you're better off before a civilian one.

The military tribunal mentioned above would not bow to political pressure, lobbyists, journalists, reporters, twiddle, fatzboob, or even Caesar's ghost. They would look at the black-letter law, the evidence of its violation, and the seriousness of the crime's effects on the safety of the United States...and take a rather dim view of people who sold out to foreign interests.

Do you understand that a politician who helps a foreign power subvert a federal election has, in fact, committed treason?

There has been so much treason and sedition committed by elected and appointed government officials over the last four years, I'm skeptical that there will be any inauguration on the 20th, if this goes to plan. Perhaps that's why Trump has said he will not be attending the inauguration.

The really funny thing about this is something that I've been saying all along: that all of this could have been avoided if the Democrats had simply come clean and let the process clear the errors. But when someone is a liar, and a cheat, and he's found out, he reflexively doubles down on it. He has too much invested in the falsehood to give it up and say, "Yeah, I shoudn't have tried that."

They could have let the audits and investigations go forward, and, "Well, shazam! How do you like that? We had no idea this was going on! This is terrible! Those responsible have been sacked."

You see, for the Democrats, doubling down has always worked before. It's never failed them; they've never told a lie that got exposed which didn't lead to them lying even harder about it. Their allies in the press would helpfully not question the new spin and it would all be quietly forgotten.

But that, as a once-popular song goes, was yesterday.

That was before the DMC spent four years trying to ooze slime all over President Trump, and in fact that was before Trump was even elected. During the Obama administration it became obvious how all-in the press was for Democrats, to the point that I got tired of writing posts about the latest proof of the press' leftward bias. I said, during Obama's administration, that the press was wasting its credibility on this stuff, and that someday they would need that credibility and be dismayed to find that it was gone.

There are a hell of a lot of Americans who now take a simple approach to anything these shitweasels say: Don't believe them. Don't trust them. The mainstream media has become a left-wing echo chamber, and the only folks that take them seriously are leftists.

Or, rather, I should say that the mainstream media was a left-wing echo chamber all along, only now they have dropped all pretense at fairness.

Nothing they threw at Trump in the past five years stuck, because it was all the same tiresome nonsense we'd heard a dozen times before during every last republican administration. The endless scandal pieces and the character assassination and the lurid accusations and the fact that not one major outlet ever had a good thing to say about him--all that did was to convince a large number of Americans that the press was out to get Trump. And once a "journalist" reveals that he's got an axe to grind, he's not really a journalist any longer; he's a propagandist.

And by the way, do you know that President Trump's popularity has gone up since January 6?

...but they don't realize this, because none of them takes seriously anything said by the rubes in flyover country. Hillary Clinton's "basket of deplorables" are a bunch of hicks and hayseeds, not sophisticated and educated elites, so obviously they're easy to trick into abandoning their support for Trump, right? All we need is to find the right salacious story and push it every day--

Something that worked with George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan, and Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford--go negative, stay negative, keep hammering negativity, all the time--eventually you push down the man's poll numbers and at that point you've won because he has no popular support.

My favorite example is from November of 1992. There was a column in the paper, at the front of the business section--I've talked about this before--where they had a list of economic indicators and discussed the prospects for the economy over the next couple fiscal quarters.

Prior to November 3, 1992, there was a constant drumbeat in that column of "recession, recession, recession", leavened with a few positives and some numbers which were "too close to call". This was 1992; they couldn't be too obvious about it, so positive numbers were reported as such without any spin. The important thing was that the numbers which were not positive were usually "recession" rather than "too close to call". But after November 3, 1992, when Bill Clinton was the president-elect, suddenly the exact same quality of numbers that were called "recessionary" turned into "too close to call".

And of course later that year the Christmas shopping season was absolutely fantastic compared to 1991's or 1990's. Even though the numbers were largely the same.

...but that kind of thing, pulled every last day since 2016, had no effect on Donald J. Trump. Because the press wasted their credibility on propping up Obama, who was arguably among the worst presidents this country has ever seen.

That credibility is gone. So no one to the right of Vladimir Lenin believed the press when they said there was no fraud in the 2020 election. That would have been an uphill battle even in 2008, but in 2020? After four years of people not believing that Trump had colluded with Russia, or paid hookers to pee on a hotel bed in Moscow, or any of the other complete nonsense of which he was accused, why did the press think we'd believe them about the election?

Why did the Democrats think they could deny the voice of the people, in wholesale lots, and still expect the country to remain governable? The patriots entering the Capitol building, unarmed, was nothing compared to what is coming if they actually get away with what they've done.

But I'm not sure they will.

Incidentally--did you notice that within hours of her death, we knew who Ashli Babbitt was, but the press has been saying for days that "five people lost their lives" and we don't have names or faces or anything, except for hers?

I don't believe that the other four deaders actually exist. I won't, either, unless I see their names and faces and biographies, and from a source I trust.

The late and lamented Ms. Babbitt was a victim of scared Capitol Police opening fire when they should not have. The other four alleged corpses have been invented out of whole cloth simply to show that the patriots were so "dangerous" that the Capitol police were fearing for their lives.

Well, one bit suggests that three people at the rally had heart attacks. Yep! Dangerous insurgents!!!!

* * *

Rumor has it that the Capitol police are denying that any of their officers was killed. However, it looks as if one of their officers had a stroke after the excitement was over.

Delta landed a plane and put people off of it because they had a private conversation about supporting President Trump. Allegedly. Any corroboration? Should we be boycotting Delta Airlines now?

Heard tell that even if the senate wanted to hear the impeachment case, they can't, because until the 20th it takes a unanimous vote for them to hold sessions for such weighty matters. I didn't really understand it, because the place this was mentioned said the senate could vote to remove Donald Trump from office on January 21st...which is after Joe Biden is supposed to be inaugurated.

Perhaps that's why I can't find the story now: it implied that Trump will still be the legitimate President on Jan 21st, and the only way to remove him then will be to impeach him.

But it's also nonsense for another reason: that rule is one that's self-imposed on the senate. It's a rule they made for themselves, like the "no filibuster" rule for opposing judicial opponents. Certainly I don't think there's anything like that in the Constitution, so what's to keep them from changing it? (Hell, even if there were something in the Constitution, I'm sure they'd find a way to ignore it, and the wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democrat party, the Supreme Court, would rubber-stamp it assuming the lower courts even bothered to hear the case.)

The senate can hear that case any damned time they please, and because the Democrats have stolen the majority--and no one cares to try stopping them--they can take that shit as soon as the house extrudes it, and put their own imprimatur on it.

* * *

So: for every positive angle I am finding a negative angle. It's hard to know which one is more likely to happen. The thing that I take heart in is how frightened the establishment is.

They are afraid--they are very afraid--and that is the source of my courage. They would not be afraid if they were assured of victory, nor would they be afraid if their victory was likely.

The fact that they are so scared that Pelosi committed open sedition in an attempt to stop Trump indicates to me that they are losing.

Look: if you're winning, you don't go on the record saying that you tried to get the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff to betray his commander in chief and invalidate the nuclear launch codes. (Or give them to you, if one rumor is right.) But if you're losing, and in losing you face losing everything and ending up in jail (and maybe facing a firing squad to boot) then one more capital crime is not really a big risk.

Honestly, I think that Pelosi thought that the chairman of the joint chiefs was her intellectual inferior and that she could bully or scare him into doing what she wanted, only--guess what?--high officers are usually highly intelligent people in their own right.

I'd bet money he recognized her phone call for what it was. If I had been in his shoes not only would I have reminded her that Trump is the legitimate commander in chief, but I also would have pointed out to her that by trying to incite a military coup she was engaging in sedition, "Oh, and by the way, this phone call is being listened to by another party who is taking notes, so it's all on the record, Madame Speaker...."

The funny thing about this is that in Apocalyptic Visions there is a scene where a politician is confronted with a military man who is better at politics than he is....

The longer this goes on, the longer it looks as if the American left is really trying to seize total power over the country, meaning this isn't just the Democrats trying to get away with stealing an election. They really did expend a lot of resources on trying to make this happen--so many that there's no way back for them, no way to hide what was done, except to win and rewrite history to erase the crimes they committed.

That's why Big Tech is deplatforming right-wingers now; they have to shut us up. But the Internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

They were cocksure that they could pull off a coup without anyone ever knowing they did it, but when things started going wrong for them on November 3, instead of stopping it, they doubled down. That's reflexive for them, but I think they had to do that because if they lost, Trump would have another four years, and they'd lose more than just those four years when he fired up the legal apparatus of the federal government. Their cause would have suffered a severe setback: a decade, two decades, maybe three decades' worth of work undone.

And so they doubled down again, and again, and again, to the point that their crimes were obvious to all but the willfully blind...and so now they needed not just to succeed in installing Joe Biden in the White House, but also to enact totalitarian rule over the country, else the people will throw them out. Not slowly, as had been the plan, but right away, as quickly as possible, because there's no time for incrementalism now.

And it was still not enough. Trump is still popular, still President, and to their dismay he apparently has one humdinger of a plan.

And so, they panic. Trump is not Richard Nixon or George W. Bush; he's not going to resign and he's not going to let them get away with seizing control of the nation. They might get it anyway, but they're going to have to show the American people who they really are in the process--and if they do that, the American people will rebel. They know it; and so they're stuck: they cannot do what they need to do to seize power immediately, because the American people are themselves armed to the teeth. But they also cannot afford not to seize power immediately.

I say that this could have been avoided if the Democrats had given up; but in fact I don't think they can give up now, because it would mean the end of their plans. Giving up on November 4 or 5 would have meant the same thing that a Trump victory means now, I think.

Like leftists do, they got eager and overreached. They can still pull out a win here, but it's not going to be a cakewalk, and instead of ruling over a nation that believes itself to be free, they will be frantically trying to keep the lid on a country where at least a third of their population is seeking to string them up from lamposts.

I want them to lose this, because I don't want that to happen here. But if it does, we must be prepared to face it.

Faith! Courage!
