I will be in my remote bunker with my guns and popcorn... Good luck folks, you might want to read on gorilla warfare and urban tactics before the internet is blocked for “safety” reasons but don’t worry about me, I will be fine. :ROFLMAO:

Don’t worry he is here to keep everyone safe. Mail in ballots can’t be trusted and in-person voting can’t happen because we can’t risk people’s safety but don’t worry once this COVID-19 thing is completely sorted out he promises the election will happen. Eventually, sometime in the future, at a later date when it is “safe” to have it... :LOL:

If we’re ever attacked by the Planet of the Apes I’ll worry about “gorilla” warfare.

Stone on the other hand should be deported to Russia or Belarus, where he might find the political system more to his liking.

Go ahead and laugh until you look out your window and you see it but don’t have any Internet!

Stone also said federal authorities should seize all Nevada ballots, federal agents and GOP state officials should “physically” block voting, that Trump should nationalize police forces, and that Trump should order widespread arrests. My guess, Trump is considering it.

I have thought - for quite some time, now - that Mr Trump is seeking an excuse to declare martial law and nullify the election results (should they not deliver a result in his favour) and, with that end in mind, he seems to be seeking to foment civil unrest.

Earlier, I did ask @yaxomoxay, whom I regard as a sane and thoughtful conservative, whether the US constitution is sufficiently strong (and the respective political institutions sufficiently robust) to resist this.

Since the moment he descended the gilded escalator, he's been sowing discord. Just as most t.v. shows borrow from other successful formats, trump has stolen bits from past elections in an attempt to win in '16.
He stole Reagan's 'Make America Great Again'. He stole Nixon's 'I'm the law and order president'. He similarly used Nixon's short lived attacks on Kennedy's health (until, ironically, Nixon was counseled that having seen a shrink in the past nullifies that attack).

Without an enemy, trump has nothing in his playbook. He has no policy proposals. He has no record of success, save for his promise to destroy the nation if elected.

History will not be kind to this fool.

What was his response? Cause I have great faith in our conservative brethren...doing the wrong thing.

History will not be kind to this fool.
We can only hope. I’d like to see him used as the poster child for cancel culture.

Doesn't some local prosecutor have some dirt on this scumbag?! 45 & his minions are making the upcoming election an afterthought. If he loses, he will seize power by any means necessary. They're telling us now that there will be no chance for Biden-Harris.

The problem is that they EXCUSE the dirt.

LTC (Ret.) Vindman tells us a bit more about the Trump administration.


If you can't read The Atlantic due to paywall... here's a summary:

He'll be a case study for what happens when a nation is ripe for change, but doesn't do its due diligence before opting for an unusual candidate.

Similarly, he'll be referred to in many psych discussions. Notwithstanding the danger he represents, he's a fascinating case study.
