Five-alarm warning.


 I'm getting tired of sounding the alarm.  Mr. Trump told America in no uncertain terms, that if he is reelected he will be a dictator from "day one".  And still, incredibly,  there are folks out there who don't believe that he poses a serious threat to this country and everything we stand for. (I see you Chris Cuomo and Mitt Romney.)  Just imagine, almost fifty percent of the people who will vote will no doubt vote for this guy, and there is a really good chance that he could win. His surrogates are already plotting how to get revenge on his perceived enemies, and those enemies include members of the press.  Yikes!

I am going to post an excellent article I read recently about this very subject, it was written by Marc Elias writing for Democracy Docket.  After you read it I would love to hear your thoughts. 

Here goes: 

"Donald Trump is plotting to overthrow American democracy. It is not a secret, and he is not subtle. The only question is whether enough people will care enough to stop it.

Trump is not hiding his intentions for a second term. Echoing Hitler’s rise to power, he has called his political enemies “vermin” and promised his supporters that, if elected, he would be their “retribution.”

Trump’s enablers have outlined a plan for him to replace tens of thousands of career civil servants with MAGA loyalists and to take personal control of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to prosecute his political rivals. He is almost certain to use an old law — the Insurrection Act — to convert the military into his personal domestic police force.

Since his power comes from a bottomless capacity to lie, he has contempt for the free press, which he calls the “enemy of the people.” He recently suggested that the government should censor or shut down media platforms he dislikes.

His most brazen attacks on democracy manifested in the aftermath of 2020. Since his loss to President Joe Biden, Trump has advocated for discarding lawful ballots, tampering with election certification and throwing out entire states’ results. 

He supports voter intimidation and voter suppression, often with a racist dimension. Recently, he unveiled a new “guard the vote” strategy, urging his supporters to monitor the vote-counting process in blue cities like Atlanta, Detroit and Philadelphia. If Trump regains power, these abuses would just be the beginning.

Though state laws generally govern elections, Trump would assuredly use the federal government to seize voting machines and ballots. Anyone who thinks that a re-elected President Trump would not insist on controlling ballot counting and certification has simply not been paying attention.

Trump’s attack on the legal system would not be confined to spurious criminal prosecutions of others. He would also use it to personally benefit himself and his most violent supporters. 

He would almost certainly pardon all the Jan. 6 insurrectionists. Worse, he would abuse his office to block his own criminal prosecutions. 

Regardless of the law, he would immediately take steps to fire all the prosecutors in the two federal cases against him. Who would dare stop him? The DOJ and the military would become a weapon to end all four criminal cases in which he is a defendant, while initiating retaliatory criminal investigations against others

If all of this sounds terrifying, it is. If this sounds unrealistic, then you have learned little from history of how democracies are replaced by despotic regimes. Hitler did not come to power in a coup, but rather from democratic elections. The same is true with many of the authoritarians today.

Even if you doubt that this is correct, it is not a risk worth taking.

Blaise Pascal, the 17th century mathematician, is responsible for the foundation of modern risk theory. In his famous “wager” he argues that even non believers should live a life as if God exists. If God does not exist, the downside of living a pious life is relatively small; but, if God does exist, the consequences of living a lavish life are infinitely bad. The lesson: measuring risk requires one to consider not only the likelihood that an event will occur but also the consequences if it does.

Trump will do anything to win in 2024 and the Republican Party will aid and abet him at every turn.

You may believe that the likelihood of Trump destroying democracy is low. You may think he will lose the election, or that our system of checks and balances will hold him back.

But what if you are wrong? " {More here} 

Maybe things aren't so bad after all. I am not alone in sounding the alarm. Hopefully a lot more people will hear it.

I can’t get my head around how many people are either absolutely oblivious to the danger Trump poses to democracy, or they simply don’t give a shit.

We’re sleepwalking into potential catastrophe.

We've had warning signs from the goddamn Republicans for decades. When they tortured people after 9-11, and that torture was likely to figure in any criminal trials they faced, the goddamn Republicans just tried to manufacture a new criminal justice system in the military, which convicted a total of eight defendants, three of whom had those convictions overturned.
Which is a piss-poor result at prosecuting actual terrorists, more than 660 of whom have been convicted in our criminal courts.
Which goes to show that 1) goddamn Republicans will weasel out of any actual law that gets in the way of them doing what they want, and 2) the things they come up with to weasel out of them don't work worth an old, green turd.
Fergus is just the excuse the goddamn Republicans are using to do the disgusting shit they have always wanted to do. As such, it is vitally important that his presidential aspirations be put down like the rabid and dangerous animal they are. No, we won't see a landslide, as those just don't happen any more, but we need a decisive win, which is in the realm of possibility still, and we need to retake control of the house so Maga Jesus Mike isn't the speaker on January 20, 2025 to re-try his attempts at subverting a presidential election from a more powerful position.
In a way, it's fortunate that Fergus can't stop himself from running his mouth about his fascist tendencies, because at least we get to hear them before we get another goddamn Republican administration, and perhaps more voters who don't obsessively follow politics can be appalled by them. Otherwise, they just sort of acted as if they were normal-ish aspiring public servants that there really wasn't any obvious reason to reject.
Thomas Ten Bears calls it "Project Just Let Them Speak", and we should do everything we can to help them do so.

How farcical will it be if American civilization ends because late-night comedians can’t stop telling “Biden is old” jokes (presumably because their writers are lazy and jokes about aging are pathetically easy to come up with), and those “Biden is old” jokes are all that low-information voters can manage to pay attention to?

The news about how Orange Hitler tried to overturn an election with bogus court cases, fake electors, and rioting mobs, and wanted to put the country under martial law but the military leaders wouldn’t comply — it all somehow just went over their heads because understanding any of this requires focusing on political details for more than five whole minutes, and frankly, they just can’t be bothered.

I don’t believe those who will vote for Trump are oblivious to the dangers he poses, it’s more that they don’t view them as dangers. They welcome totalitarianism because that is what they want, at least in the fourth reich the white man will still be in charge.

What we will be witnessing is the last paroxysms of rage of a people who don’t understand what the world is becoming. They don’t understand how it could be that white people are no longer automatically presumed to be in the right, that there are people who are working towards a society where there privilege is not a god given right.

It’s fascism viewed through the lens of nostalgia. Or perhaps the other way round.

The Purple Cow said...

« On the other side they see the illegal, unofficial forms of violence practiced by “stormtroopers” and similar shirted hooligans outside the forms of law, as in Italy and Germany. This is characterised as fascist.

But what about violence which is technically illegal and unconstitutional, but carried out nevertheless by duly constituted officials clothed with legal authority? What about such things as the breaking up of meetings and picket lines by official police and special deputies; wire tapping; inquisitions; screening and blacklisting of “subversives”; and all the rest of the intimidation and terror of the witch-hunt? These procedures don’t fit very well into the “democratic” formula, although their chief instruments are legally-constituted officials, supported and incited by press campaigns, radio demagogues etc.

This kind of illegal violence under the outward forms of law has a distinctive American flavour; and it is especially favoured by a section of the ruling class which has very little respect for its own laws, and cares more for practical action than for theories as to how it is to be carried out. This is, in fact, an important element of the specific form which American fascism will take, as has already been indicated quite convincingly. »

Yeah, there aren’t enough racists to enable Trump to take power, all by themselves. There isn’t a racist majority in the US.

But unfortunately, racists + stupid people + undemocratic features of our electoral system = maybe Trump gets to be president again. The combination of these factors worked for Trump in 2016, and could work again. That is the tragedy.

That is exactly my view. If it was just down to the racists, we wouldn’t have to worry about Trump mounting a comeback. But there are quite a lot of those disengaged, selfish people, and they may well lend the racists a helping hand. So we are still facing a possible calamity.

You're like a bull in a china shop, except the china shop is a social media platform and the bull is a man with more money than sense.

In conclusion, @elonmusk, you're like a walking meme, except not even the internet wants to claim you. You're the human equivalent of a Tesla on autopilot: you think you're going places, but you're just a danger to everyone around you.

Texas SB8 claims not to be a law but a "civil action". But in prescribing "injunctive relief" in the amount of at least $10K plus attorney fees for the plaintiff but not the defendant it is in every sense a law. In no other circumstance would a member of the public have standing in civil court to bring such action except having been invited by the legislature by means of this “non-law” to abuse the civil court for fun and profit. As such this “non-law” enlists said civil court as defacto law enforcement in violation of separation of powers and hence should be declared unconstitutional.

Anonymous said...

SB8 has never been meaningfully tested in court. The Supreme Court refused to issue an injunction preventing it from going into effect, but did not rule on the merits of the law. And I don’t believe anyone has yet attempted to actually use the law to punish the provision of an abortion.

If anyone ever is sued under SB8, it seems like there is a strong chance SCOTUS will nuke it out of existence, considering how legally nonsensical it is. And also considering that Roe v Wade has now been overturned, so it’s harder to see any justification for allowing civilian “bounty hunters” to sue anyone carrying out or “abetting” an abortion, when the state can just go ahead and prosecute these people itself.

dinthebeast said...

Yeah, if Paxton goes after Kate's husband or whoever helped her flee Texas her life and her fertility, it won't be the first action under SB8. From Wikipedia:

On September 20, 2021, Oscar Stilley, a former lawyer in Arkansas, filed a lawsuit against Braid for providing the abortion.[145] Stilley told reporters that he did it in an effort to speed up the process of getting the law reviewed. Another lawsuit by Felipe Gomez of Chicago was filed against Braid the same day. Gomez argues for the law to be declared unconstitutional as the law is illegal until Roe v. Wade is reversed or modified.[146] Both lawsuits were commenced in San Antonio in the defendant's county. One is in forma pauperis. Both plaintiffs are not averse to publicity.[147] Both have also intervened in the federal case brought by the DOJ against Texas. Legal experts expect SB 8 lawsuits brought by pro-abortion rights plaintiffs to fail for lack of a controversy and thus standing.
_

Since those were brought before Roe fell, and there were questions of standing, Kate's case could conceivably be the one that brings SB8 before the goddamn supremes to be adjudicated on its merits. Whether or not that was her intention, I don't know, but by this point in the fiasco, I would imagine she would be game for participation.

The goddamn Republicans want to enslave women as broodmares for their amusement, and if they don't want that? Kill them:

Some Missouri lawmakers are renewing a call for the state to take an anti-abortion step that goes further than prominent anti-abortion groups want to go and that has not gained much traction in any state so far: a law that would allow homicide charges against women who obtain abortions. Republicans in both the state House and Senate have introduced bills to be considered in the legislative session that begins next month to apply homicide laws on behalf of a victim who is an “unborn child at every stage of development.”

“Republicans in both the state House and Senate have introduced bills to be considered in the legislative session that begins next month to apply homicide laws on behalf of a victim who is an ‘unborn child at every stage of development.’”

The abortion laws they’ve already passed are proving to be electoral poison for Republicans. It’s hard to believe they want to find out what kind of bloodbath happens to them at the polls if they go ahead and pass a law imprisoning/executing women with unwanted pregnancies for the crime of “murdering” a single cell. (Please note that wording: “every stage of development.”)

I don’t know if these folks are just delusional, or if they’re already counting their chickens and expect they’ll soon succeed in completely dismantling democracy, and thus won’t ever have to worry about anyone voting them out.

Trump, who won more of the black vote than any republican in living memory, is polling even higher this time around. Time for dems to pander! (you'll have to find your own links to this leftist tripe.)

Quick quiz!

What do New York California and Illinois all have in common?
Answer: large black voting populations that are pissed off at democrats supporting illegal sanctuary cities and states.

What else?
Answer: these states outlawed slavery before the Civil War, and in fact, sent thousands of soldiers to end it.

Note, that these blue-shithole states are just authorizing "commissions" to "study" reparations. The likelihood of a single dollar ever being doled out on a mass scale are close to zero. But since dems consider the black vote "theirs" and are worried that what they've taken for granted since LBJ is falling apart, they're pandering to the what they consider the low-information voter with the basest of ideas - free money.

Nikki Haley's off on her abortion numbers
In the Dec. 15 Post, Nikki Haley is quoted as saying "We don't want women getting an abortion at 37, 38, 39 weeks." Does anyone ever catch her out on the math? Thirty-seven weeks equals nine months, plus one week, 38 weeks equals nine months plus two weeks and 39 weeks equals nine months, plus three weeks. I don't think anyone is actually having an abortion at that point in a pregnancy. Someone needs to point out how ridiculous her statement is and not let her get away with it

These are the kinds of lies we come to expect from magats. For drumpfuck, abortion should be retroactive and mandatory.

“These are the kinds of lies we come to expect from magats. For drumpfuck, abortion should be retroactive and mandatory.”

There is a whole batshit mythology among anti-abortion crusaders about “babies” “surviving” abortions, implying that it is a common situation that a woman could make it to full term or nearly full term in her pregnancy, deliver an intact, live, healthy baby — and then have the doctor kill the baby by bashing its skull against a wall, and instead record the delivery as an abortion.

This is not a real thing. It is made up. It does not happen. At least, not if you’re talking about a legal, medically approved procedure by an actual doctor, as opposed to some sort of grimy, amateur, illegal back-alley abortion setup.

In real-life, abortions are either early-term, in which case the fetus is not developed enough to survive outside the uterus; or they are late-term, in which case the fetus is injected with a lethal drug and chopped into pieces before being removed from the uterus. There is no “surviving” an abortion.

The last "election" proves there is no "democracy" in America.
America is a whore for people like Doug and Mike to screw.
Neither of them have contributed anything to this country. They've never paid taxes. They do like to insult taxpayers while ripping them off though.

I paid taxes for 32 years and you would look nice with a sheep in your butt.

I take that back. There's nothing that would make you look nice.

Elon is working very hard to guarantee that he won’t be able to sell any of his cars in Europe. Brilliant plan, I must say.

"they're pandering to the what they consider the low-information voter with the basest of ideas - free money"

Not really. Dems actually have substantial policies aimed at helping people. For example, Illinois congresswoman Robin Kelly and senator Dick Durban have co-sponsored a bill aimed at helping lower the too high maternity mortality rate of Black women. Real smart people with real solutions and no pandering to low information and low education voters like the GOP

Merry Christmas Eve from an atheist who thinks that an overweight elf living on the ice above an ocean and defying the laws of physics to visit every home on the planet in one night using a team of aerobatic caribou as his vehicle isn't any more far fetched than white boy Jesus from the West Bank...
Anyway, I hope you all have a happy holiday, whether you "celebrate" it or not.

Merry Christmas to you as well, Doug!

And a happy Christmas to all.

I'm still playing the piano and organ on Christmas Eve. I've been doing this for 48 Christmases. I'm not sure how much longer I can keep this going. But I do love it. Maybe five years tops.
