Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

During a speech in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Donald Trump inadvertently said something that most people would consider true when he appeared to admit that he is waging a war against democracy. Trump: From that day on our opponents and we have a lot of opponents but we've been waging an all out war on American democracy.

'Later in the same speech, Trump suggested he could win elections in New York, California, and Illinois if they had a "real election."'

Everyone votes for Saddam.

Trump's problem is when he goes off script, ad-libbing, he has to keep up a praddle of speech to keep his audience engaged. Any long pauses, while he thinks of what to say next, will drop the interest level of his audience. He's not a fast thinker on his feet. So sooner or later, out comes the truth or some lie so outrageous that someone should catch right away what the flub was. That is everyone but the koolaid drinkers.

Trump has said up front what his real problem is. As long as there is a democracy, he can't be a dictator for life, which is his ultimate goal. Believe what he says, he means it.

OpEd: It's Time to Fix America's Most Dangerous Law
www.nytimes.com

... There is a land mine embedded in the United States Code, one that Donald Trump, if re-elected president, could use to destroy our republic. But it's not too late for Congress to defuse the mine now and protect America.

I'm talking about the Insurrection Act, a federal law that permits the president to deploy military troops in American communities to effectively act as a domestic police force under his direct command. In theory, there is a need for a well-drafted law that permits the use of federal troops in extreme circumstances to maintain order and protect the rule of law. The Insurrection Act, which dates back to 1792 but has since been amended, is not, however, well drafted. And its flaws would give Trump enormous latitude to wield the staggering power of the state against his domestic political enemies.

These flaws are especially relevant because Trump and his allies are keenly aware of the act's provisions and have long expressed interest in its use. Trump has publicly regretted not using more military force to suppress riots in the wake of George Floyd's killing in 2020, there were suggestions that he utilize the act as part of his plot to steal the 2020 election, and now there are reports that Trump might invoke the act on the first day of his next term, to suppress demonstrations, to control the border or both. ...

"Insurrection Act, a federal law that permits the president to deploy military troops in American communities to effectively act as a domestic police force under his direct command."

This is what GracieAmazed is begging for every time she posts the weekend body count in Chicago.

GracieAmazed isn't smart enough to understand it, but that's why her media sources keep telling her "Chicago."

Chicago is a problem that can only be solved by direct use of force under direct Republican leadership.

Trump was president for 4 years. Why didn't he "solve" the Chicago problem?

@#6 ... Trump was president for 4 years. Why didn't
he "solve" the Chicago problem? ...

For starters, I'll proffer that fmr Pres Trump wanted to keep some problems around in order to use them for his devisive politics.

To wit, immigration and the Four Pillars in June 2018.

Fmr Pres trump looks to want to divide and conquer, not unite and be great.

He and Putin really have been doing exactly that, with the help of the cowards of the Republican Party, of course. Come election time, 2024, Americans will see who is in it for the greed and who is in it for the people and their Constitution.

Sounds like On to me.

Maybe Trump's age and dementia is getting to him and he just can't talk clearly anymore. Maybe that bout of COVID did him in.

OK.

Trump plans to be a dictator nonetheless- as confirmed by past, ongoing, and his personal promises of future behavior.

I believe the man when he says that he'll drop the hammer on day one.

The Crisis will start on day one.

Help or get out of the way.

The daughter-boning------------'s insurrection is proof of his war on American democracy.

So Snopes huge "false" is due to IN instead of ON?

WTF is the difference in real life? Just taking him at his word qualifies for "ON".

It's interesting visiting some of you in the asylum and learning this is what several of you (again not all) think. It's literally deranged lol.

No one thinks that you're crazy.

Everyone thinks that you are a Know Nothing because that's what's demanded of you by the fascist line.

So and therefore---Not crazy but a bad man.

I mean, look at who you support.

Nice try. But it's not "false".

He actually said it. So not false propaganda. A gaffe maybe but not false. Now whether it is was Freudian slip or not is another matter.

I tend to believe it was a Freudian slip because that is how Dotard really thinks. Or more accurately ... doesn't think. Rather he Regurgitates recycled hateful bile.

Now if you maga maroons were as only as forgiving of democrats when they commit these kinds of gaffs.
