I see much hoopla nowadays about Donald Trump having come to power by way of a coup. I see various left-wing-but-mainstream outlets advocating that we stop calling Donald Trump our President. This is entirely wrong-headed, and is the next step toward our downfall as a nation. This story has played out before, and will play itself out again if we do nothing to stop it. This is a critical time for our nation. We are on our way to a revolution, one which must be crushed, if this insanity is not stopped. The cure may be as bad as the disease.
For starters, Donald Trump is in fact the duly elected President of the United States of America. You may not like this fact. I’m not entirely comfortable with it myself, quite frankly. But facts are facts, and the fact of the matter is that Donald John Trump was elected by our Electoral College to be the 45th President of the United States. Our system worked. A popular majority is not required to win that Office, and a look at the vote distribution map clearly shows the wisdom and brilliance of our nation’s founders. The system worked, and we should thank our lucky stars it did.
Our problem is, now, that we must be willing to make it stick. The agitprop is running rampant now. There are literally prominent people in popular, mainstream media calling for our government to be overthrown. There are college professors calling for the murder of Donald Trump. There are violent mobs shutting down free speech on college campuses, directed in some cases by these professors. This is the same vector the Communists used in Russia. It is happening again, right before our eyes.
This must cease, immediately. The next acts in this little play are riots fomented by Communist groups or those directed by them. Riots which must be cracked down upon, lest they inflame entire cities and begin an open civil conflict. A crackdown must surely follow, and then it is up to the character of Donald Trump to shape events. This is not a place where I want to be. I will put faith in the Constitution, and give the benefit of the doubt to the elected President. I see those trying to usurp the system and invalidate the election as highly suspect in their judgment at the very least.
The President of the United States has the Power to put down insurrections. This is delegated to him by the Constitution. What is happening now, and what could unfold in the coming weeks, will certainly smack of insurrection. We cannot let this chain of events proceed. Our President will be forced to round up and jail the leaders of this insurrection, and that will snowball. Public outrage will further divide the country. Riots will ensue. Martial law will follow, as night follows day. As it must.
We the People must look to our neighbors and friends, our coworkers and the people with whom we interact and conduct business every day. Imagine pointing a gun at each and every one of those people and squeezing the trigger. Or, since roughly half of the country voted for each of the top-finishing candidates in our recent election, call it half. The time is coming when you will have to make hard choices. If we cannot put the brakes on this train, it will plunge off the trestle that’s been dynamited before it. We have seen this story before. Must we continue the cycle all the way to its bottom? Can we please learn from history, before it’s too late?
Choose sides now, and weigh your losses now, before the insurrection is kinetic. It doesn’t matter which side of this divide you are on, you must do this. Then realize that this future that you are contemplating is yours, if you remain apathetic now. Circumstances will be forced upon all of us, circumstances we cannot yet foresee, and you will bitterly mourn for the time you wasted right now.
We the People have a banner to which we can rally. That is the Constitution. It is the fundamental secular Law of our nation. We are duty-bound to follow it, in this matter, even if we don’t like the results. The alternative is one that nobody who is advocating for forcing out our duly elected President can imagine. Talk to someone who lived in the Soviet Union sometime, especially an older person. This is not a road you want to go down, especially since our technology would make a police state that much more total and that much more nightmarish.
I had an acquaintance in a class I took a couple years ago, a very personable and pretty articulate guy, with whom it was easy to strike up conversations. Inevitably, the conversation rolled around to politics. He is a far left fellow, and made no bones about it. I respected that, but of course extolled the virtues of liberty over the inevitable consequences of the form of government he was advocating.
One thing he said struck me, especially. He informed me that I “just didn’t understand the love that was behind [the movement].” By his face, it seemed as though my retort might have caused him to tuck it away for further study. I said, “The Nazi regime and the Soviet Union are the quintessence of collectivism.” I direly hope that he will dig that one out of his memory banks and think about it a little more, for we are headed down the same path as the Russians tread, and the inevitable end of this path is a despotism most bleak.
I said we would, as a people, need to make this election stick, whether we like it or not. This is not hyperbole. We have a tough row to hoe ahead of us. This country is under perhaps the most severe threat of its entire existence. Abraham Lincoln said this country would not be conquered from outside, but that if it fell it would do so because of rot on the inside. This is veritas. I see the rot before my eyes, and I cannot stop looking at it. I have begun laughing uproariously at it, because the pieces strung together are like a comedy where everyone dies in the end.
Imagine if, on Monday, we see a resumption of outages or a spread of this “Ransomware” that has caused so many problems globally. Clearly, the security researcher in England who did the world a favor and registered a particular domain name is to be commended. He stumbled along and put his finger in the dike. But the story does not end there. This same code can be modified and relaunched with no Hail Mary to stop it. Worse already exists or is being cooked now, probably also based upon code our own intelligence organs created.
What happens to our cities when money can no longer move? When trucks no longer carry food because money cannot move? Does that increase strife within a country, or decrease it? It seems to me that a cyberwar situation, where people are hungry and desperate, when political tension is already high, would be the perfect time to shove, rather than nudge. An insurrection taking off in earnest at a time like this, especially one which looked like it had a chance of succeeding, would create chaos that would leave us vulnerable to outside attack, as well.
Civil strife in the United States would be just the kind of chaos a petty tyrant like Kim Jong-Un would use to his advantage. Perhaps he would drop one or both of his satellites, speculated to carry EMP weapons, over the United States. Or perhaps if the first one works on us, the second one will be dispatched to the atmosphere above Europe as it swoops overhead. Unless we pull our heads out of this fog, we are in grave peril.
It is estimated that, if we were hit with an electromagnetic pulse weapon, over 90% of our population would die. We are dependent on our electric grid and all our electric gewgaws. If those suddenly stopped working, and if we could no longer communicate, this is a very credible estimate. Our grid is utterly unprepared for this event. If we are also trying to kill each other, this looks like a good option.
We are already infiltrated by millions of military-aged, able-bodied men who are experienced at getting by with little or no infrastructure. Perhaps they are sent here by our guiding light to help us to survive in such an event, but perhaps not. An event like this could turn the tables on an unsuspecting American populace in a split second. Do we truly know who has come across our border, and where they are, and what they are doing, and who is helping them to do it?
I know that people who aren’t just a little off-kilter never think about such things. I will not profess to be entirely what anyone thinks of as “normal”. I am, to the greatest of my ability, trying to prepare for what I believe to be coming. I live off the grid, in about as close to a wilderness area as you will hopefully never find in the continental United States, with plenty of good, fresh running water. I have provisions to last a good while. I don’t have room or provisions for anyone else.
Face the facts. Please. Donald John Trump is the President of the United States, having been duly elected according to our Constitution. He is of sound mind, and is probably a fairly straight businessman, but from the old school. You may not like him, and you may not agree with him on anything. But he is the President, and that duly elected office deserves your allegiance.
