Orchestrated? It is clear that the January 6, 2021 attempt to overthrow the government of the United States was more orchestrated than Beethoven’s Ninth.
John Eastman? Look, with one exception, I’m not sure who is actually going to prison in this abomination. But John Eastman is going to rot. With my full support and encouragement. Understand, Eastman will be everybody’s fall guy here. He’s dead.
Weeks before Jan. 6, Eastman was floating the idea of threatening violence at the Capitol as a way of influencing SCOTUS to weigh in on behalf of Trump and The Big Lie.
The key to all of this is Pence, of course. You have to figure he’s, you know, kinda pissed. But he’ll strategically try to stay above the fray and let his staff do his singing. And they will be operatic.
Why does all this matter? To keep this kinda shit from happening again, especially with Trump seeking a return to the White House. This is by no means “old news,” and it is not time to “move on.”
I fully expect Trump to formally announce his candidacy for president in 2024 in the next few weeks. Why? Deflection, as usual. Trump can raise more money by announcing and can gain more flexibility over that money. Plus, becoming an announced candidate might fade at least some legal heat, since courts and judges might be reticent to appear “purely political.” And as an announced candidate, Trump can whine about any decision that goes against him as evidence of “political bias.” Trump is very good at whining.
Understand, everyone around Trump is telling him it’s too early to announce. That’s one more reason why he will, of course.
But don’t discount the entertainment factor. If Trump reaches toward his holster, DeSantis will have to draw as well. Watching those two pigs trying to waste each other will be more fun than a toga party. Everybody on the floor! Time to do The Gator!
More problems with baby formula production. We can neither feed our babies nor protect them from being slaughtered. We need to stop reading our press clippings. We suck.
Oh, you know that point of climatological no return that smart people have been warning us about for a half-century? Congrats. We may have already passed it. But you were smarter than these experts, right? What exactly is it that “Conservatives” control? Certainly not coastlines.
Love, prayers, support and thanks to Dr. Fauci.
