An interesting look ahead to 2028 and potential candidates, as well as the groundwork some may be doing already.

The gift that goes on giving from the man who doesn't read (and maybe can't).

 

 

A while back I heard a teacher talk about Trump. Based on her many years of educational experience it was that persons opinion that Trump had very low reading skills and was basically illiterate. According to her he exhibits all the trade marks of someone who cannot read properly and has to bluff their way through life making people they meet think they know what they're talking about.

 

Trump never read any of the daily presidential briefings that were prepared for him. Apparently he dismissed them as being unimportant. This supports the teachers observations.

Which gives rise to the interesting question of whether Wharton is a corrupt institution that sells diplomas for big bucks. Apparently Trump's time there was not all that memorable, in spite of his bragging about it.

Trump is the squirming spoiled brat at the museum yelling "This is so boring and stupid" while stomping his foot.

https://www.axios.com/2023/11/16/trump-efforts-disqualify-2024-ballot-14th-amendment >> he can stay on the ballot in Michigan, and Colorado's block is on hold for now.

 

I always thought this particular strategy was something of a long shot, but let's see what happens.

"Law and order" supporters true to form :(

RNZ: Police, FBI probe threats to Colorado judges in Trump ballot case

Colorado authorities and FBI are investigating possible threats against state Supreme Court justices, Denver police said on Tuesday, one week after the court barred former President Donald Trump from the state's presidential primary ballot.

The Denver Police Department also said it was providing "extra patrols" around the homes of the justices, who ruled 4-3 on 19 December that Trump should be disqualified under a little-known clause of the US Constitution's 14th Amendment for engaging in insurrection.

Two nights later, Denver police officers were dispatched to the home of one of the justices in response to a call for service that police afterward described as an apparent "hoax report," adding they were still investigating the incident.

Republican strategists have suggested the Colorado ballot ruling, likely headed for a US Supreme Court appeal, would spark a backlash among political conservatives by reinforcing the narrative that Trump is the victim of a partisan legal process.

NBC News and other media outlets have since reported the emergence of violent rhetoric on right-wing online forums from Trump supporters aimed at the four Colorado justices who sided against him.

The posts in question, according to news reports, included messages calling for the justices' personal information to be publicly exposed, and an apparent reference to the judges that said: "All f**ing robed rats must f**ing hang."

Classless, incoherent and crazy Use Of CAPS (◔_◔)

I didn't realize our leaders had "Open Borders, INFLATION": sounds like they need to visit a hospital ER.

Trump's Christmas message:

"Merry Christmas to all, including Crooked Joe Biden’s ONLY HOPE, Deranged Jack Smith

Included also are World Leaders, both good and bad, but none of which are as evil and "sick" as the THUGS we have inside our Country who, with their Open Borders, INFLATION, Afghanistan Surrender, Green New Scam, High Taxes, No Energy Independence, Woke Military, Russia/Ukraine, Israel/Iran, All Electric Car Lunacy, and so much more, are looking to destroy our once great USA.

MAY THEY ROT IN HELL. AGAIN,

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Trump is clearly disintegrating. The best hope is that he soon collapses to the point even his sycophants can't make excuses for him any longer.

An excellent analogy.

 

I went to Te Papa yesterday to see the Dinosaurs of Patagonia exhibition, with a squirming spoiled brat, and immediately regretted it. An expensive mistake.  😦

 

(The dinosaurs were fascinating, and much better behaved.)

The Washington Post - Opinion - Blame democracy’s woes on the GOP or ‘tyranny of the minority’?

 

28 Dec 2023  (extracts)

 

 

Liz Cheney’s memoir [ “Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning” ] takes us through the events leading up to the 2020 election, the attempted coup and the investigation that followed. In granular detail, she explains how a maniacal narcissist insistent on retaining power bent weak men and women to his will.

 

Had Republicans not played along with the “big lie,” not signed a brief attempting to disenfranchise millions of voters, not raised bogus objections to electoral votes, not maintained those bogus objections even after the assault on the Capitol, not acquitted Trump in his second impeachment and not continued to curry favor with him, the nation long ago would have done away with the only president ever to refuse to transfer power peacefully to his successor.

 

 

 

By contrast, Levitsky and Ziblatt [ "Tyranny of the Minority" ] explain that elements designed to prevent mob rule and emergence of an executive despot have become a fortress for a political minority - mostly White, rural and Christian. The essence of democracy, majoritarian rule, is therefore thwarted.

 

The authors enumerated numerous antidemocratic devices such as the filibuster, the electoral college, the rural-state biased Senate, gerrymandering, lifetime-appointed Supreme Court justices and voting restrictions that have been adopted by the Republican Party. The latter no longer can compete for majority support in an increasingly pluralistic country, so it relies on these devices to stay in power.
