    Well. I guess we have been duly warned. :smirk:

    I suspect things might very well turn out violent as well....but I also suspect it might not turn out as well for the Trump haters as they suspect. The majority of the people out here in Flyover Land have just about had it with the Left's nonsense---and they're just about ready to say "Enough", and go on the offensive. God help the Left if Middle America decides to fight back.

    Trump is already talking about using the Insurrection Act if that happens

    I picture President Trump suddenly having an urgent need for an "Emergency White House bunker inspection" when he realizes just how badly he's lost this coming election, only ending with the Secret Service having to bodily carry him out of the White House in January. I suspect there's probably a waiting list of agents signed up who want to be part of the "carting President Trump out the door" squad. I hope they all remember to lift with their knees, not their backs when they carry him out.

    They want to defend the police yet its the threat of the police and going to jail that's holding the right back. They don't seem to think things through very well.

    I was watching him last night in an interview with Judge Janine talking about the Insurrection Act if needed.

    He said any violence over the results of the election will be put down immediately.

    The people committing the violence are cellularized, well-funded and largely protected by local/state authorities.

    This idea that armed and angry conservatives stand a chance against a mob of radical, violent, leftwing revolutionaries is pure vanity. Everybody involved in this (meaning, all Americans everywhere) should hope like crazy that things don't turn more violent than they already have. Because this entire situation is awful and violence is flat-out not the answer here.

    LOL. I think that is what Nancy is hoping for also.

    what will be interesting to see is the level of violence the left puts out.

    As it should be. Presidents will come and go, but the process serves everyone (but the anarchists).

    That dystopia is based on how events played out in one of the Transition Integrity Project’s exercises. We explored the four scenarios experts consider most likely: a narrow Biden win; a big Biden win, with a decisive lead in both the electoral college and the popular vote; a Trump win with an electoral college lead but a large popular-vote loss, as in 2016; and finally, a period of extended uncertainty as we saw in the 2000 election.

    Notice the asymmetry in their report. Biden gets two straightforward ways to win, Trump gets only the booby prize, an electoral win with a large popular vote loss. The Left is at it again, tilting the table. How dishonest does one have to be not to give Trump winning scenarios equivalent to those of Biden? This was a report and an article with a purpose - to set the expectation that Biden alone could be the rightful winner of the election, and anything else would be due to Trump chicanery. This was more than a "vote for Biden or else" threat, it helped set the expectation of election rigging by the Right. Despicable, and it happens every day in the corporate media.


    I agree, ultimately. The gun owners of this country risen up would comprise the largest army in the world, and most of them are on the Right. But settling things might not be easy, and I would caution against overconfidence. This article chronicles the experience of one cop up in Portland. He was surprised to find out that Antifa was well-armed, well-organized, and very well-trained in guerrilla tactics, as well as being vicious and unprincipled as he expected.

    If Donald Trump is true to his nature, he won’t go quietly. He will cause a public uproar and incite violence among his supporters. He might even call his supporters to take up arms to defend him. I certainly wouldn’t put it past him. In 2016, he suggested that his supporters who owned guns could act against Hillary Clinton if she was elected and not him. He also told his supporters to beat up the people who protested against him and he’d pay their legal fees. He publicly ridicules and disparages other people. He seems to enjoy causing chaos and dissension. I wouldn’t surprised if he is arrested and led out in handcuffs because he refused to leave the White House if he loses the election. I wouldn’t be surprised if the federal agencies already have a plan in place for that possibility.

    You mention of how badly he might lose the election. What if he doesn't lose badly the election? What if it's debatable and wants a review to go through the Courts? Would you resist a President's Constitutional rights to have the courts look at the issue? Clinton has told Biden (almost sounded like an order) for him not to concede election night for any reason.

    "Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually, I do believe he will win if we don't give an inch and if we are as focused and relentless as the other side is..." Hillary Clinton

    The Dems aren't going to accept anything quietly either. See Post #11

    Exactly. What it sounds like is the Washington Post issuing a call to arms but making it sound like they're merely reporting on someone else's thinking.

    And who is that "someone else?" Oh, it's leading Democrats on one team collaborating with the other team of analysts made up of fanatical opponents of Trump but not entirely Democrats. This link helps explain it even better:

    EXCLUSIVE: Obama Lawyers Fund 'Transition Integrity' Group Which Claims to be 'Non-Partisan', Tied to Hunter Biden

    What arrangement could produce a more predictable conclusion than that one? :D

    Credit should be given to the Post for this concluding thought, however:

    Seeing as in the nws in the UK they reported on someone being caught on video just casually walking up to police car and shooting the two cops inside in LA it seems its already started.

    I also watched a news report the other day about Russian tampering with the election including having perfected how to use fake news and influence voters.

    Those people have worked hard to look like they represent a real movement there when there actually isn't one.

    Can you say Evan McMillan without the image of a McDonald's product coming to mind?

    It's going to be interesting, one way or the other.

    What I'm curious to see will be the reaction of the Left if Trump wins by an absolute landslide, where there can be absolutely no argument of the results; similar to, say, Roosevelt's win in 1936, Nixon's win in 1972, or Reagan's win in 1984. What will they do then?

    The situation described in that article seems tailor-made for the employment of a tactical nuclear weapon....

    I wonder if they decided to join the Portland P.D.? I know I wouldn't go anywhere near it.

    Much will depend on whether the Democrats gain in the House and Senate or not.
