What The Usurpers Want Most Of All

     This morning, Julie Kelly writes:

     After nearly two years of lies related to the events of January 6, 2021, the regime finally has admitted the truth: The widening legal dragnet to scoop up Donald Trump, his associates, and his voters has nothing to do with the four-hour disturbance on Capitol Hill that afternoon. It is, rather, a thus-far successful crusade to criminalize wrongthink about the outcome of the 2020 presidential election….

     Of course, this is what the January 6 hysteria has always been about. As the chaos unfolded on January 6, Joe Biden and his apparatchiks immediately denounced believers of the so-called “Big Lie”—the claim the election had been rigged, if not stolen, by powerful interests who wanted nothing more than to defeat Trump—and vowed revenge would come swiftly….

     “Operation MAGA Fascist” appears to be the commander-in-chief’s unofficial name of the regime’s war on terror against millions of Americans, which now is reaching a version of the Battle of Fallujah but without the bloodshed. (Let’s hope.) The unprecedented FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago on August 8 ratcheted up the fever of the war by a considerable measure—the regime’s desired response.

     In truth, this campaign against “domestic terrorists” – the least violent, most polite such “terrorists” in the history of Man – is a second-best device. No doubt they’ve been hoping for a provocation from some Trump-supporting group, but so far none has materialized. Neither can the Usurpers’ pet propagandists can’t claim as the Soviets did that disaffection with their Regime is the work of external enemies. What they really want is a hot and threatening war that could be used to distract the citizenry from goings-on at home. The closest approach to this so far, the Ukraine – Russia conflict, doesn’t qualify.

     Woodrow Wilson’s Administration profited hugely from World War I. Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Administration profited even more greatly from World War II. Perhaps Lyndon Johnson hoped for similar results from Vietnam, but that war didn’t have the right qualities to engage the public sufficiently: it was an essentially minor conflict in a Third World country where no important principles or American interests were at stake, yet it reaped American lives in horrifying amounts. The Afghan War and our involvement in Iraq disserved both the Bush II and the Obama Administrations for similar reasons.

     “Look over there” is the prestidigitator’s method. It works for governments, too – but there must be something adequately attention-grabbing to look at.

     Well, if there are no external threats to pound the lectern about, an internal threat must be made to serve…even if it must be fabricated out of tissue-thin lies. But the Usurpers’ ravings about “domestic extremists” and “a threat to our democracy” aren’t working as they’d hoped. The realities are too stark and their lies are too plainly contradicted by the evidence. The Gestapo-like FBI raids on prominent Trump lieutenants and supporters, and the unconscionable treatment of the 1/6/2021 prisoners, heavily outweigh the propaganda.

     I can’t say of my own knowledge that panic is setting in at Usurper Central, but a report of such wouldn’t surprise me at all.

     This is not absolutely good. It could cause the Usurpers to “step on the gas:” to greatly accelerate and intensify its actions against President Trump and those who have supported him. What’s already taken place is bad. What could follow from a full-scale program of political repression is too horrifying to contemplate. Moreover, among the federal myrmidons who’d be called upon to carry it out, there is no indication that they would resist the order to implement such a program.

     Can we sincerely doubt that the men who’ve conducted the raids so far would blanch at a widening and intensification of their campaign? Consider what they’ve already done to Roger Stone, to Steve Bannon, and to Paul Manafort. Consider what they just did to Mike Lindell. Our rights are of far less significance to them than are their paychecks and prospects for advancement.

     Could the Regime get away with suspending the November elections on the grounds of a “national crisis?” That’s unclear, though the way the polls are trending, they must be nervous about whether their vote-fraud operation will be adequate to keep them in control of Congress. No president has ever declared martial law – but one interned 120,000 innocent Japanese-Americans as a war measure. A previous one pressed for the Sedition Act of 1917 and used it to arrest a number of political opponents, including Eugene V. Debs. And one well before him wrote an order for the arrest of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, though he never issued that order. What if the Usurpers should recast their anti-Trump / anti-MAGA campaign as a second Civil War, this time bereft of geographical boundaries?

     Don’t hope for an insurrection. Pray that we’ll go to the polls in November and outperform the Usurpers’ vote-fraud cadre. It’s the last peaceful outcome that remains possible to us.

    Allow a bit of speculation. In these here neck o’ the woods. Donald Trump got 80% of the vote. A goodly number of the 87000 IRS agents will be knocking on doors around here, I suspect. With guns on their hips?  Almost everyone has at least one firearm in this county. Will it be a question of who draws first? Lord only knows.

    After Pearl Harbor the federal government went to the leaders of Japanese people (not all were citizens or born here)  to ask then to help root out those Japanese who declared themselves faithful to Japan and committed to try to interfere with the war effort here in this country.  The Japanese leaders refused and in fact there were sabotage incidents committed by Japanese Americans.  Thus the reason for the internment, a most peaceful and kind internment.  Remember that the Japanese Americans who were interred were well fed, children provided education, and all treated kindly.  NOT SO for those Americans who were drafted and forced to fight and die to save our country.  While the Japanese Americans who were interred did indeed have their freedom infringed some 5 million Americans had their freedoms infringed and faced death and mutilation fighting for their lives 5000 miles from home.  WHO HAD IT BETTER???

    1. FDR literally imprisoned 120,000 people because a small minority of them — “leaders” — refused to renounce their allegiance to Japan and a few others committed acts of sabotage. How nice. Let’s change the ethnic description “Japanese” to “Jewish.” Would you still defend the internment? Or how about instead of “Japanese,” we make it “black?” What then?

      The interned Japanese-Americans endured conditions of squalor. None of them were ever accused of any crime. Some of them had children in the armed forces. Many lost their homes and livelihoods. “Peaceful and kind internment” my ass. Go fuck yourself.

    The elections, if held, will fare badly. You can’t expect commies to stop being commies. They stole the last one, they’ll steal this one. Flip a coin as to how it comes out. This country will erupt into gun fire from one end to the other.
