The plan was for trump to invoke the Insurrection Act after his team staged violent acts which would give him the justification to begin crackdowns.

With that in mind, maybe it's not such a crazy idea that Marjorie Taylor-Greene was the mystery figure who was caught on camera planting pipe bombs the night before.

Why I worry about 2024.

1. Gop outright steals the election.
2. People on left protest.
3. Gop goes draconian in response.

Won't happen.

What is more likely to happen in 2024 is Trump 2.0 having everyone that opposed him or was on the 1/6 committee accused of covering up the 'fraudulent election' of Joe Biden... executed. Including Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

Congressman Jody Hice, a Republican of Georgia, raced by a Democratic colleague, who told me Hice was screaming into his phone: "You screwed it up, y'all screwed it all up!" (Hice has denied the incident occurred, but the Democratic congressman stands by his account.)

farking pathetic.

All that effort-- just to get a second term for a lazy, ineffective, dumb, piece of shiat like Trump.

Just think of what they could have achieved if they had put that much energy and planning into something useful.

It's mind boggling.

FTA:

Of the thousands involved in the Capitol riot, 725 so far have been charged with various crimes. But those sentenced, mostly true believer foot soldiers of the Trump mob, were not the originators of the coup, the most dangerous sedition against the constitutional order since secession. Nor were the leaders of the militias, of the Proud Boys, the Oath Keepers and the Three Percenters, present at the creation.

The people being prosecuted are just the footsoldiers and the people who held any responsibility are going to get away with it.

Reminder: Hitler killed himself in April 1945, and the Nuremberg Trials began in November (concluding the following October).

Again,it's time we address the elephant in the room and start asking some tough questions about who was involved in Jan 6, and not just the right wing militia folks. A lot of these people were there as part of a "fundamentalist" crusade called by multiple poplar religious groups on the right, including televangelists and evangelical megachurches.

If scary brown people were involved in this, we'd use the word Jihad. Because that's effectively what happened.
