The Great Trump Coup

Do you think the MAGAs will do some insane shit between Jan. 17-20? Oh and they’ll blame it on Antifa! Also, that Trump will declare martial law, suspend the constitution and overthrow the government to create an American Dictatorship? Well?

They'll try it. But the security situation is going to be much improved. I don't see it being very successful.

by Anonymousreply 101/13/2021

Call me ignorant and lazy, but can an impeached president declare martial law?

by Anonymousreply 201/13/2021

They're neither smart nor organized enough. Insurgent groups from so-called banana republics put them to shame. They couldn't hold FARC or Shining Path's jockstrap.

by Anonymousreply 301/13/2021

An impeached president is still president with all the powers and immunities of the office.

But a president can’t just declare martial law you you might just decide to take a sick day.

by Anonymousreply 401/13/2021

^^^ like you might

by Anonymousreply 501/13/2021

No. The 6th was their chance and they failed. The smart, organized group that was there on 1/6 won’t be dumb enough to try again with 20k national guard, the military, and every federal agency present in DC. DC is basically locked down.

I’m more concerned with smaller incidents in other states.

There’s absolutely no scenario that results in Trump still being president on the 20th

by Anonymousreply 601/13/2021

Norah O’Donnell CBS EVENING NEWS said there are alt-Right plans to block routes into DC, including roads and railways.

by Anonymousreply 701/13/2021

What's that gonna do, r7?

Most everyone is already in DC. Including numerous troops.

Biden can be sworn in anywhere as long as it's witnessed.

Agreed; god only knows what those crazy fuckers in MI are up to & that poor guy GA that recorded Dear Leader's grift is no doubt living in hiding

by Anonymousreply 9Last Thursday at 12:16 AM

No not now OP. Not with all the troops/military lock down in Washington.

*That's not to say whatever they have planned in the future is over but there will be no Dump coup. I think whatever happens will more likely be at a state level now. What Dump said can't be unsaid now - not even by him. Dump has been green-lighting their call to arms for years and the "movement" can't be put back in the box.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff issued a statement this week making it very clear they would not follow any illegal orders given by Trump.

by Anonymousreply 11Last Thursday at 12:31 AM

They will try more coup but "it will not happen" it will fail.

by Anonymousreply 12Last Thursday at 12:42 AM

Most of the MAGA terrorists now think the 16th and 17th are set up to be honeypot traps. Most likely nothing will happen. (Thankfully).

Before social media shut a lot of MAGA/QAnon down, I did see a lot of mention of 3/4 being the date for the “real” inauguration. Did anyone else? I wonder if this could be the date of another attempted coup?

by Anonymousreply 13Last Thursday at 12:43 AM

What would be the significance of the 3/4 date do you think R13?

by Anonymousreply 14Last Thursday at 12:49 AM

I'd like to see a lot of them killed. Would make the last four years a fond memory.

by Anonymousreply 15Last Thursday at 12:57 AM

3/4 is the date US inaugurations were held from 1793 until 1933. It was changed to 1/20 after the 20th amendment ratified - which makes sense, could you imagine sitting through a 4 month transition right now? I wish the senate would review and amend to a 1 month transition.

But getting back to Maga/QAnon, I sense there could be ongoing preparations towards this 3/4 date, meaning that there will be continued crazy. Unless the FBI can make substantial mass arrests.

by Anonymousreply 16Last Thursday at 1:02 AM

OK thanks for the 3/4 explanation R16.

Yes I don't doubt there will be continued crazy R16. It's literally inevitable. There won't be a Dump coup but they will go back and hunker down, dig in and plot now that they have been initially thwarted. Their anger will grow and fester. QAnon and other movements will grow in size and reach and like you say - continued crazy.

What a shitfest.

by Anonymousreply 17Last Thursday at 1:10 AM

The rioters not yet arrested are of two groups:

Those who are scared and are trying to lie low;

Those who are extra-stupid and violent who will go armed to D.C. and be met with overwhelming and lethal force.

Neither group will escape justice.

by Anonymousreply 18Last Thursday at 1:11 AM

Also, the Magats are getting help from inside sources. This video is of an MSNBC press photographer. Look at the hand gesture.

I feel as if they have lost a lot of their momentum. When you factor in covid, job loss, lack of healthcare, many just want some sense of normality return. At least I really hope they do. They seem subdued.

Pics please.

by Anonymousreply 22Last Thursday at 1:39 AM

A good friend of mine who is former army sergeant told me there are handful with the mentality of Michael Flynn who like the military but are anti-government. But I believe because we are now on guard to insurrection, a coup will not be successful.

by Anonymousreply 23Last Thursday at 1:42 AM

Was the question ever if it would be successful? The first one was a mess. Even the trained militia didn't manage to kill a legislator. The question is, are they going to attempt another?

by Anonymousreply 24Last Thursday at 1:46 AM

The hard core repuke fascist in politics have waited a lifetime to be in change. They have to be rooted out and destroyed. This is a start. This was too much for even life long republicans who voted for for them because of lack of education, ect. They have been exposed. It was shocking and ugly. Even many in their own party are sickened by seeing their Capitol overtaken, feces smeared on walls, brutal murder, lawlessness. The Trump supporters in my family are ashamed.

by Anonymousreply 25Last Thursday at 1:48 AM

I'd bet money that guy isn't regular press. A legit media photographer with that long hair, that red hoodie, that inscribed mask?

IDTS.

Plus, no media outlet has identified or claimed him.

Anyone can buy or borrow a couple cameras.

Congress needs to watch the original "Day of the Jackal."

by Anonymousreply 26Last Thursday at 1:48 AM

You can never let these hard cores go unchecked, and this is what has happened for years. With Toddler-Tyrant, they have been elevated and empowered. But that is over. Their party is no longer in control. They are under a microscope, facing criminal charges. The loonies have no leader. He has been finally been muted. I doubt they have the balls now.

Good points R26, then the question becomes, who is he? If not credentialed press, how was he able to get in so easily?

@Bittersouthernbitch, I hope you are right that these insurrectionists may have lost momentum, but I just have the feeling this next year, maybe next couple of years are going to be full of unrest. It’s like the genie has been let out of the bottle. However, there seems to be more “woke” people out there - as in eyes are opened to this underbelly. Much less “both siding” or diminishing of those who have been warning about the increased radicalization of these magats/qanon.

by Anonymousreply 29Last Thursday at 2:13 AM

R29- I feel it can go both ways, tbh. I can only try to gauge, not the hard core supporters, but the "God and country" yokels who truly are not down with this shitshow. They have buried the truth of what their party truly stands for. For years. They no longer have that thin veneer of deniability.

by Anonymousreply 30Last Thursday at 2:34 AM

That is true R30, let’s hope it lasts. Most of my family is pretty liberal to center of the road, but there are some magats. What scares me is they are all military and they still supportive of Trump/MAGA even after the events of last week. Keep in mind, all were radicalized in the military. I’m just hoping they can be quickly deprogrammed.

by Anonymousreply 31Last Thursday at 2:45 AM

It’s not surprising the military are Magits. Most come from poor Jim Crow States and bring their racism with them.

by Anonymousreply 32Last Thursday at 2:54 AM

Who is the weirdo making the obvious white-supremacist gesture in R19?

by Anonymousreply 33Last Thursday at 3:05 AM

R33 supposedly a press photographer, but as R26 said, it could be that he isn’t even press. I have not seen any updates regarding a verified ID.

R32 the Magat military family members (3 cousins and 2 in-laws) come from blue states - New York and Wash. state, all middle class, 4 are college-educated, 3 are black-latino. Make of this what you will.

I'd like to see Obama come out in a tan suit and call them "Radical Christian Terrorists".

-Frankly, at this stage, it is alarming that the answer is not obvious to the President and those around him. The difference is that calling these terrorists what they are — radical Islamists — would be reassuring to those Americans who have doubts about Obama's proficiency as commander-in-chief.
