It’s Getting Restless in the Beer Halls

Well the Emperor Don I continues his daily tweet storms to his supporters determined not to lose even one of their votes.  These folks are beginning to look more like a cult for it seems Don was right.  He could shoot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue and not lose a single vote.

His supporters are clearly beginning to constitute a danger to the Republic displaying all the making of an American S.A.

Trump’s” cult of personality” is clearly on the rise among the smitten currently at 38 – 40% of voters and probably 75% plus  of Republican voters.  Three quarters of Republican voters approved the way he conducted himself at the recent NATO meetings and at Helsinki.   I mean, how low does he have to go to move some to have misgivings?  Clearly we have not yet reached the bottom.

I mean he admitted on tape to grabbing ’em by the pussy and paid $130,000 to a porn star to keep her quiet, all while married to his 3rd wife.  So much for Christian family values.

He spoke approvingly of neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville where a young woman was killed when a car driven by a brown shirt wannabee plowed into a crowd.  The Don responded that there were  “good people on both sides.”

He separated children as young as three months old from their parents seeking asylum at the border and shipped them half way across the country to be housed in hastily constructed camps and cages in an old Walmart store.

He conducted a campaign which conspired with the Russians.  Yes.  He did.  And he knows it.

Gave a tax cut to billionaires which will add at least a trillion a year each year for the foreseeable future.  So much for responsible Republican stewardship of the budget.

He has called the press the “enemies of the people” – a phrase I haven’t heard since Joe Stalin died.

He put in tariffs which resulted in tariffs in kind directly hurting Red State farmers

Of course North Korea is no longer a nuclear threat even though they are continuing to make and stockpile nuclear material.  And to deflect attention from his ongoing problems related to lying about paying off the porn star through his “fixer” he launched a twitter storm against Iran this week.

All of this has just been fine with his supporters.  He spends everyday tweeting to his base making sure he doesn’t lose one percentage point of support in his base.  He doesn’t even bother to use a dog whistle.  He makes sure they know where he is coming from.

Some half of all Republicans believe that Trump won the popular vote in 2016 whereas the truth is that Hillary won the popular vote by over 3 million.  These same folks concurrently believe that voter fraud goes on commonly, all the time which is, of course the reason that Hillary “won” the vote.  The mountains of evidence to the contrary fall on closed minds.  They believe that millions of illegal immigrants and non-citizens voted for Hillary in the 2016 election.

The most shocking poll of Republicans reveals that 52% of Republicans would agree to postponing the 2020 election and that 56% of Republicans would do so if  it was proposed by Trump and Republicans in Congress.

That is the key to Emperor Don staying in power.  His base will believe anything he tells them to believe.  They will vote any way he tells them to vote.  He is counting on them to do whatever he tells them to do and if recent polls are to be believed, that is exactly what they will do.

“Much of the news media is indeed the enemy of the people and all of the Dems” he tweeted on his way to Helsinki.  On his way home “The summit with Russia was a great success except with the real enemies of the people – the Fake News Media!”

What you’re hearing in those tweets is Trump preparing his base  and you must ask yourself for what?  What is he preparing them for?  What will he tell them to do?

He is  preparing for the Mueller end-game investigations.  He, he will not be driven from office by Congress or the Courts; he will fight to the end of democracy if necessary for he has no loyalty to the Constitution or any love of democracy.

He is preparing his base for the day he fires Mueller, Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions, pardons everyone convicted, collects the entire investigation and burns it.

He’ll send his supporters into the streets and when counter-demonstrators clash with them, he will declare a State of Emergency and begin making arrests.  He’ll begin with the likes of Antifa and Black Lives Matter and move on to anyone near a demonstration where lives were endangered or property damage.

When the jails are filled he will put the excess in the same camps he is using for the immigrants.  If you think the thought of Japanese internment was shame enough to keep America from building concentration camps again, you are wrong.

American citizens working for the government or contractors are following orders – they are building camps, stringing barbed wire, making children march down make-shift streets between tents.  They are denying access to these camps to the news media and members of Congress.  And they are doing it willingly while contractors are making hundreds of millions of dollars imprisoning immigrants.

And when demonstrations break out against the camps he will declare Martial Law.

And his base will support him all the way.  his base believes every insane thing he says.  His base believes every insane thing he does.

Those “libruls” opposed to the Fuehrer wannabee are the new Jews and his supporters are waiting for their Reichstag moment.

The Make America Great Again crowd pose the gravest threat to democracy this country has ever faced within these shores.

 

About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    I have been thinking about that ‘Reichstag moment’ too. It dawned on me some time ago (shortly after he won in 2016) that all he needs is a ‘massive event’ to shift all blame onto, then impose numerous restrictions on personal freedom as a result. Then just ban elections, and rule by force.
    If he can’t get the Federal authorities to cooperate, all he needs to do is to organise the NRA members and rednecks int one of those “well regulated Militias, being necessary to the security of a free State”.
    Best wishes, Pete.
