TWGB: They Texted a Criminal Conspiracy?

 

Apparently, some of the cast of characters featured in the over 2,000 text messages to Mark Meadows that CNN got a hold of were advised they were getting hung out, and that's great. They should have expected that. They were involved in trying to overturn an election. It is serious business. Now, I am starting with Matt Schlapp, who as far as I know is still taking CPAC to Hungary next month and really isn't deviating at all from who he's ever been:


(I stay mad about 2000). And I would venture to add--I don't think this was completely unexpected a violation of democratic values from the Republican party, the party of Watergate and the October Surprise and Iran-Contra, and Benghazi (yeah--I am calling the politicization of that tragedy solely about elections, not at all about justice for the slain or rectification of security issues).  I don't expect better from this party. I am a little shocked about how many Republicans sold their soul and allied their reputations to Trump, the amoral reality tv show pussy-grabber.

The GOP occasionally pretends they have standards. Their support for Trump has belied this and I will not ever let them live this down. He is corruption and amorality in a saggy skin-suit. 

So, while I can laugh with all of you at Perjury Traitor Greene being shown up about her confusion at whether martial law was ever discussed (or Marshall Law, as the illiterate case may be), it's nonetheless disconcerting that apparently, there was a GOP House group chat where martial law was very strongly recommended--just days before the inauguration. When the election of Joe Biden should have been a settled cause, and the imposition of martial law would have definitely been a full military autogolpe situation. (And yet we weren't unaware that this was part of the conversation at the time--it's just who all was saying it that was striking.) 

I think it's odd to contemplate that Jason Miller was both a voice of reason, asking if some of the election fraud claims were even plausible, while also being a monster who encouraged blaming the insurrection on antifa. 

And they did it for this sweaty, deluded chump who can't admit he lost a fair election despite all the lack of evidence that his election was stolen and blames his Vice-President and the Senate Majority Leader for what is ultimately his own failure to win the necessary number of votes.  This putz, who was just cited for contempt and is going to pay $10K a day (well, his fan club will pay it, I am sure) because he isn't releasing docs to the NY AG because his business affairs look bad, probably because they are bad.  Like, why should we think they aren't

Trump was a crook president, and he made crooks of his party. What else is there to know?

It has long been my conviction that the Y2K nuts had it right, they just didn't quite get their grubby little fingers wrapped around it - that the nepotistic appointment in the face of both the loss of the electoral and ultimately the popular vote by an ideologically stacked non-elected panel of actively partisan vigilantes of the scion of old school Robber Baron, Hitler financing money with limited intellect, less education and no practical governing experience to speak of to the highest office in the land effectively marked The End of 'America'.

We're where we're at on momentum, and it's running out ...

Was Benghazi!, the spectacularly successful cover-up even into the highest halls of congress of Romney and the Retards (look it up) spectacularly failed campaign attempt to stage a Reaganesq hostage-taking and subsequent White Guy Riding To The Rescue The Black Guy In The White House Could Not October Surprise that instead resulted in the deaths of an American ambassador and three services-members abroad, a dry run, a training exercise; practice?

A dress rehearsal for Trump's "1/6" (one-six) insurrection and attempted coup?

Someone stirred up the rubes with inflammatory social media rhetoric, incited then herded a riot to overrun a poorly defended U.S. government compound.

The same tactics used in the 50's to install puppet governments in Iran, Chile.

All the players in the "1/6" cover-up ~ Jordan, Meadows, McCarthy, McConnell, Faux News, the NY Times, the Post ~ were all players in the Benghazi! cover-up. Many were players in the 2000 supreme court coup.

Benghazi! ... Needs more investigating. It's all connected ...
