Fanning the Flames

Too bad Trump’s cult loves their Dear Leader more than America.

They believe in his Big Lie over every state certification board, every poll worker, every recount, every court, and every elector.

This blind acceptance and obedience fits the definition of a cult. They attacked our Capitol, believing they were following Dear Leader’s orders.

All that matters to these terrorists and their sympathizers is they hate the same people, those of us who know Trump is a dangerous liar.

And they are foaming at the mouth for more insurrection. Another Fourth Reich style rally and possible Putsch are in the works for September 18th.

Washington (CNN) Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said Monday evening that law enforcement needs to take the upcoming right-wing rally in support of jailed January 6 rioters "very seriously" as concerns mount about more potential violence on Capitol Hill.

Law enforcement members in Washington are steeling themselves against possible unrest at the "Justice for J6" rally -- planned for September 18 -- which aims to support the insurrectionists charged in the riot.

Homeland Security Intelligence chief John Cohen told CNN last month that online extremist rhetoric is strikingly similar to the buildup to the January 6 attack, with increasing calls for violence linked to conspiracy theories and false narratives.

Still, McCabe, who served as the FBI's deputy director from 2016 to 2018 including a period as acting director, said Monday that law enforcement has "a few factors leaning in their favor" this time. "You don't have a sitting President actively fanning the flames and trying to get people to attend the rally," he said.

Sorry Andy. They have an ex-president fanning the flames. He is still their Dear Leader, and he's still pouring gas on his fire.

Trump recently mixed in more hate and blame with his Big LIE.

Just last week he told his new “spokesperson” and fellow serial liar Liz Herrington "We had it perfectly -- perfectly -- in control. We could have taken our time. It was after I got out with a Rigged Election, as soon as I got out [the Taliban] started taking over. Those 13 incredible people would be alive today."

Why do Trump True Believers eat that crap up so willingly? Is it the hate? 

I see no other reason for rejecting truth to this dangerous degree. This radical cult is attacking our country's democratic process, voting rights, and elections as well as the truth.

All on the word of Donald Trump.

No shame. No decency. No honor.

Just loyalty to the Big Lie of "Honest" Donald Frickin Trump. No wonder so many brainwashed dupes think wearing masks and vaccinations do not mitigate a pandemic. Many still think covid is a hoax.

Only hate can explain their brainwashing, fascist demonizing, scapegoating, and hate mongering like, "Leftists hate America", and every damn thing they say about socialism and Critical Race Theory.

This cult of lies and hate is what is really tearing our country apart.

It took six months after being legally voted out of office for the big jerk to finally recommend getting vaccinated.

His cult didn't like being told that, either.

How many cultists will continue to embrace his Big Lie, even if after he finally recants the most dangerous lie known to the republic?

Trump may back off on his Big Lie if he starts to feel the heat of justice closing in. He’ll probably try to weasel his way out by saying, “That’s what people were saying”.

He’d better start rehearsing.

He and Lindsay Graham are under investigation for interfering with the Georgia election.

This is exactly what he said.

"Just find me 11,780 votes."

"Just say the election was corrupt, and leave the rest to me."

They are criminals and enemies of democracy. Period.

Some of us thought the Trump cult fever would break once he was thoroughly defeated in 2020, but his cultists are more rabid in their loyalty to the Liar, Cheat, and Fraud than ever before.

What this has shown me is that within any given population, there will always be people who are drawn to authoritarian figures who are willing to lie to them to stay in power.

The hardest thing for me to accept is that so many of my fellow Americans are eager to destroy our republic on such an unworthy man.

Shaw,
The most frightening aspect of the entire radical Right cult's debacle is the possibility that Trump will not face justice.

If that's the case, our Constitutional republic is by definition terminated. In fact his incitement of a mob to overturn an election will forever erase our history of peaceful transition of power.

America has NOT been made great again. Trump accomplished the polar opposite. He and his party have degraded and suffocated our democratic republic with hate, lies and insurrection. They will suppress voter rights, deny any loss, and nullify any election they lose.

This is the dark tyranny that awaits America.

Trump needed to not only lose, but to be prosecuted, punished, humiliated, dishonored, and totally repudiated.

Lock him up. It's the ONLY way to save the country.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Dave, that's what I hope for. But I'm not sure I'll see it happen.

-FJ said...

Wanting to lock people up sounds pretty authoritarian...

Dave Dubya said...

FJ,
Yes, wanting to lock people up can be pretty authoritarian.

I'd say it depends on the reasons, like justice and maintaining public safety.

Locking up dangerous criminals like murderers, extortionists, robbers, and those who incite insurrection and mob violence fall under justice and maintaining public safety.

What would you suggest be done about those criminals?

Crimes like fraud, extortion, grand larceny, etc. need to be deterred by punishment in some form. The criminal has in effect exerted illegal authoritarian power over his victim.

Justice seeks a balance.

If justice, proportionate punishment, and deterrence could be served by means other than incarceration, it should be considered. I wish we had more humane, practical and effective answers.

Wanting to lock up people for victimless crimes, minor offenses like drug possession, or no crime at all is very authoritarian.

Do you recall those "Lock her up!" chants at Trump's rallies? THAT is authoritarian.

-FJ said...

You don't remember the Mueller investigation that inspired those chants and which turned out to be a completely a "Hillary Campaign (Sussman) manufactured" hunt for "plausible" crimes and subsequent labelling of Trump as a political criminal? Wow...

Dave Dubya said...

FJ,

Wow, indeed. I do not remember the Mueller investigation before Trump won in 2016.

Can you explain how Mueller's investigation came BEFORE the "Lock her up!" chants at Trump's 2016 rallies?

Are you unaware of the Trump Tower meeting the Trump campaign held with Russians? Are you aware of Manafort's Russian contacts, and that the campaign gave polling data to Russians?

You seem to have a treasure of new information that has yet to be revealed.

For FJ:

JOHN DURHAM ADMITS HE OVERSTATED EVIDENCE IN HIS MICHAEL SUSSMANN MATERIALITY STATEMENT

https://www.emptywheel.net/2021/10/21/john-durham-admits-he-overstated-evidence-in-his-michael-sussmann-materiality-statement/

In response to Michael Sussmann's motion for a Bill of Particulars, John Durham effectively admitted that he has no evidence Sussmann himself coordinated directly with the Clinton Campaign before (he alleges) lying to hide coordination with the Clinton campaign.

-FJ said...

lol!

His "overstatement" is a product of the link author's imagination. If Sussman was de facto billing the Clinton Campaign, HE WAS AN AGENT OF THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN.

-FJ said...

btw- Are you aware that 'Russian Agent" Manafort shared polling data with isn't a Russian Agent? He was an employee of his consulting business who had also worked for JOHN MCCAIN.

-FJ said...

Edumacate yourself.

Dave Dubya said...

FJ,

I'm not going in circles with you. You've shown your detachment from reality by claiming "Lock her up" chants at Trump rallies were AFTER Mueller's investigation. Maybe you think his report "exonerated" Trump as well. Mueller simply stated there was insufficient proof of a legal description of conspiracy between Trump and his campaign with the Russian government. That's it. No "exoneration".

The Steele Dossier is irrelevant. "Russia, if you're listening..." IS relevant.

Facts are facts. The Trump Cartel openly admitted getting a lot of money from Russia.

The Trump tower meeting between his campaign and Russians is proof he clearly welcomed their interference. Trump kissed Putin's ass in Helsinki, as he threw his Director of National Intelligence and Agencies under the bus.

Do you know why Reality Winner was locked up? She shared classified info on Russian cyber attacks on the 2016 election.

The facts remain Trump welcomed Russian interference and obstructed the investigation.

You're free to believe Trump, Barr, and Kilimnik all you want. They are liars.

I'm sure you think you know more than the FBI. They may not be entirely trustworthy, but your opinion is likely less informed, especially if based on the word of Kilimnik.

Konstantin Viktorovich Kilimnik is wanted by the FBI for obstruction of justice and engaging in a conspiracy to obstruct justice which occurred in Washington, D.C. and elsewhere from in or about and between February 23, 2018, and April of 2018. A 2018 indictment issued by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia alleges that Kilimnik knowingly and intentionally attempted to corruptly persuade another person, with intent to influence, delay, and prevent testimony in an official proceeding. Kilimnik worked and served as a liaison to Ukrainian and Russian politicians and businessmen. Kilimnik, who is assessed by the FBI to have ties to Russian Intelligence, allegedly assisted with a multi-million dollar lobbying campaign in the United States which was allegedly conducted at the direction of the Ukrainian Government without providing disclosures required by law.


On June 8, 2018, a federal arrest warrant was issued for Konstantin Viktorovich Kilimnik in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia after he was charged with obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice.
