A Friday the 13th “Reinstatement”?

`

As of my posting time, it’s now Friday the 13th all across America. Not being one who’s particularly superstitious, I’d normally be feeling blasé re this numerology. However, owing to very little qualifying as normal, these days, I’m feeling unnerved, instead. And with good reason, too.

It all boils down to the MAGA maniacs, who’ve been perpetrating and perpetuating The Big Lie; namely, that Donald J. Trump (not Joe Biden) won the 2020 election (yadda yadda yadda, YAWN). Little doubt, they’ve taken out their orange crayons to circle August 13th on their calendars; designated this very Friday as “The Day” where they expect all nine of the United States Supreme Court Justices (even the three liberals; YIKES!) to be ruling in favor of illegally disenfranchising legitimate, qualified voters; unlawfully overturning said election for the express purpose of “reinstating” Trump. And, once that crap goes down, what’s supposed to happen next?

Well, the X-prez’s hardcore supporters also expect President Biden, VP Kamala Harris, the whole kit and kaboodle of Biden Administration cabinet members and other staffers to do what?

Shrug? En masse, wave good-bye? Obediently march, single file, out of the White House, off the grounds and out onto Pennsylvania Avenue? And after that?

Well, to hazard a guess, that’s when Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts would supposedly head for the U.S. Capitol steps to meet up with his boy Trump; to swear him into office a second time? Uh, on second thought, why would Roberts even bother? I mean, the Trumpster never has / never will take such an oath, seriously.

Of course, it’s utterly absurd to even discuss any of this; seeing how there’s absolutely no Constitutional stipulation or legal precedent to reinstate a former, one termer president; well, other than for him to run again and emerge the victor.

And, therein is the hidden danger. Donny’s delusional supporters actually believe that precise scenario will be playing out, today; just as strongly as they believe The Big Lie, itself. So, how will they react when reality comes crashing down around them? When absolutely none of that above scenario comes true?

Trump’s January 6th attempt to overthrow Democracy did provide us a valuable clue. That very seditious act amply demonstrates how his subversive supporters can and will march in lockstep with him. Indeed, at the mere drop of a red MAGA hat, they can and will re-attack America. And just knowing that such on-cue malevolence is brewing… alas… long sigh… it is possible that this Friday the 13th could prove to be bad luck for America.

And, while I hadn’t been planning on venturing forth into our Covid / Delta Variant diseased world, anyway, that Trumpers might be plotting, yet, another destructive, deadly coup d’état (in protest of Biden remaining our President)? Well, that’ll certainly keep me hunkered down at home; not only today but far beyond this entire weekend, too.

We can only hope that we, the genuine Americans, who still wholeheartedly believe in honest even-handed, liberty-based governance and voter rights / the sanctity of the ballot, will outclass and outnumber traitorous, tyrant Trump and his treacherous, MAGA minions.

The very survival of my / our homeland depends on the former political species prevailing.

Where Does Clyde “Enjoy the Go”?

`

Trumper Republican Andrew Clyde, of late, has been doing double duty as both charlatan U.S. Congressman and authentic (Orwellian magnitude) American History revisionist. He recently weighed in… correction… pooh-poohed Donald J. Trump’s January 6, 2021 attempted coup d’état, thusly:

“There was an undisciplined mob, [but] to call it an insurrection in my opinion is a bold-faced lie. Watching the TV footage of those who entered the Capitol and walked through Statuary Hall, showed people in an orderly fashion in between the stanchions and ropes taking pictures. If you didn’t know the footage was from January 6, you would actually think it was a normal tourist visit.”

To borrow bold-faced liar (and poo-poo / doody head) Clyde’s own words…

Since when does “an undisciplined mob” constitute “a normal tourist visit”, hmm?

To briefly rehash reality…

Most sensible, peaceable, pro-democracy people, worldwide, perceive January 6th far more accurately than Clyde does. We had been eyewitness to the (then) President of the United States of America ordering his attack against the United States of America; emboldening his MAGA mad hatters to storm the U.S. Capitol; to do whatever it’d take to deep-six democracy / prevent legislators from performing their Constitutional (12th Amendment) stipulated duty to certify Joe Biden’s / Kamala Harris’ Electoral College victory.

Of course, Trump’s malignant narcissism did make it impossible for him to accept ballot box defeat; so much so, that he flat-out lied about widespread voter fraud; so much so, that he believed his own lie; so much so, that his devotees eagerly ate up whatever poop he fed them; so much so that, in defense of their indefensible prez and his fraudulent cause, they murdered and maimed; pillaged and looted; despoiled and soiled; so much so, that they even took dumps in the hallways; trampled and tracked their own feces throughout the premises.”

Soooooo… if Congressman Clyde actually believes that “a normal tourist visit” is inclusive of defecation and fecal smearing, what might his own personal life be like?

  • Is this U.S. House Rep. housebroken?
  • Would an outhouse outclass his digs?
  • What type of art hangs off his walls?
  • Does he gross out his house guests?
  • Just where does Clyde “enjoy the go”?

America Is Back!

`

Two scant weeks ago, after the 45th President of the United States of America had ordered his attack against the United States of America; had deployed his private army of insurrectionists to storm, invade and violate our homeland’s Capitol building; expected them to do their damnedest to illegally install him; to complete his Fascist overthrow of America, Democracy, Liberty, etc., We, who feel genuine love for our homeland, began to wonder if there were any limits to what that bastard would attempt.

Quite understandably, We the People began to ask ourselves…

  • After their failed coup d’état, what would happen next?
  • Would his duly elected opponent ever manage to fight his way to the top of that very Capitol building’s steps to participate in our Constitution’s mandated orderly, peaceable transfer of power?

Well, I’m pleased to report that all is well; indeed, America is back!

On this Inauguration Day, at 11:48 a.m., twelve minutes early, Joseph R. Biden Jr. took his Oath of Office to become the 46th President of the United States of America. And, mere moments earlier, Kamala Harris took her Oath, too, to become America’s very first female of color Vice President!

I, too, participated; stood for Lady Gaga’s passionate rendition of the Star Spangled Banner; added my voice to firefighter Andrea Hall’s moving recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance; sang along with Jennifer Lopez’s stirring, This Land is Your Land and Garth Brook’s heartfelt, most appropriate, for these pandemic days, interpretation of Amazing Grace; took to heart poet Amanda Gorman’s message of unity.

I even unfurled, dusted off and displayed my flag’s “broad stripes and bright stars” on my humble home’s front door.

I suspect that, at some point, today, the welled up tears of joy will ebb a bit; the shudder down my spine will ease up, too. I mean, all things considered, We the People had come too damned close to losing, perhaps forever, our beloved homeland; the America our Founding Fathers had so thoughtfully secured for themselves and posterity.
