Anxiety surges as Donald Trump may be indicted soon: Why 2024 is 'the final battle' and 'the big one'​


WASHINGTON – It looks like American politics is entering a new age of anxiety, triggered by an unprecedented legal development: The potential indictment of a former president and current presidential candidate.

Donald Trump's many legal problems – and calls for protests by his followers – have generated new fears of political violence and anxiety about the unknowable impact all this will have on the already-tense 2024 presidential election


I’ll reframe this is a more accurate way, Are Presidents above the law? This new age was spurred into existence when home grown dummies elected a corrupt, mentally ill, anti-democratic, would be dictator as President and don’t bother to hold him responsible for his crimes, don’t want to because in the ensuing mayhem and destruction, they think they will be better off. The man is actually advocating violence (not the first time). And btw, screw democracy too. If this feeling spreads, we are In deep shirt.

This goes beyond one treasonous Peice of work and out to all his minions. This is on you or should we be sympathetic to the idea of they can’t help being selfish suckers to the Nation’s detriment? Donald Trump is the single largest individual threat to our democracy and it‘s all going to boil down to will the majority of the GOP return to his embrace and start slinging his excrement to support him?
 

And Donald Trump sprints toward being close to Dick Cheney making a call that Trump will not like the end result of. A big sincere, YAY!

If there's one person and the group of people they are connected to you do not "eff around and find out" with, it's Dick Cheney. That dude is BFF with the blackest of black operatives in the CIA. There are much worse things they could do to Trump than kill him, if they want to make his life miserable.
 
I guess some Epstein evidence was made public today. Trump appears on call logs to Epstein quite a bit from what I am reading. Also, the allegations from an Epstein victim against Trump are being circulated again. They’re pretty shocking, but well within known Trump behavior with women, the only difference being these are 12-14 yo girls. The case was dropped just before he announced his run for president, for whatever reason.

This is something the Democratic candidate should get as much documentation as they can, using Freedom of Information Act filings if they need to, and record as much video testimonies from as many very credible people as possible. Then you flood every day from mid October until the last polling place closes on Election Day with an around the clock media blitz revealing a shockingly new detail every few days so it stays fresh in the voters mind and Trump has to play defense the whole time.

The response from Trump world will be it's all lies. We've seen in the Carrol ruling and the New York felony document falsification indictments on all 34 counts, that Trump's "it's all lies, defense only works with some of his voters, very little with independents and undecided Republicans, and definitely not at all with Democratic voters.
 
All 3 main architects of Project 2025 were in the Trump Admin. He still to this day embraces the Heritage Foundation. Nobody should believe these lies now.



It's about co-opting the executive branch with Christian nationalist loyal to the Republican party. It's exactly what they did in the Supreme Court. How else do you get that insane immunity ruling.

He’s starting to figure out that most people won’t like Project 2025 when they learn more about it. It has dimly pierced his lizard brain that it might be bad for him politically.
 
That was a great episode of TNG
=========================


In his increasingly rambling public speeches, Donald Trump seems to be talking in some version of Tamarian, a language first heard more than 30 years ago in a 1991 episode of “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

Spoken by a potentially hostile alien leader, Tamarian baffles the universal translator because it doesn’t consist of nouns, verbs and adjectives or any of the usual building blocks of language, but rather of allusions to myth, literature and history, densely packed but meaningless unless you know the context.

Trump is now so bonded to his base that he need merely allude to “the snake” or MIT or names like Rachel Morin and Laken Riley for the crowd to know that these stand for, respectively, a fable about immigrants and misplaced trust, a Trump relative who taught at MIT decades ago and victims of crimes allegedly perpetrated by men who entered the country illegally.

Recently, a new reference has crept into the Trumparian lexicon: the Woman with Two Beautiful Children, or the Beautiful Woman with a Good Family.

It appears when Trump discusses the most ambitious and cruel item on his policy agenda, the deportation of millions of undocumented immigrants, potentially as many as 11 million people who will be rounded up, herded into camps and returned — somehow — to countries they may not have seen in decades and that may be hostile and dangerous to them.


The Woman with Two Beautiful Children is an attempt to preempt or neuter outrage, anger and sorrow about an act for which the only recent precedents are deeply un-American: the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II and the 1954 deportation of more than a million Mexican Americans by the Eisenhower administration, an event known by the terrible slur “Operation Wetback.”

The image occurs in its clearest form in a speech Trump gave in Detroit on June 15. He began with his signature promise: “On Day 1 of my new administration, we will begin the largest deportation operation in American history.”

The next part needs to be read in full and then parsed: “And it doesn’t make me happy to say that either. And you know what’s going to happen? We’ll get 10 terrorists and then one woman with two children that are beautiful children, and that’ll be the front page of every newspaper.”

This echoes language from a June 4 interview he gave on "The Will Cain Show” on Fox News (“You’ll get rid of 10 really bad ones and one beautiful mother”).

Paraphrased into English, Trump is saying: For every 10 (or 10,000 or 10 million) bad people we deport, the media will fixate on images that depict the suffering of a few good people, perhaps an attractive woman with beautiful children, which will cause outrage and make it difficult to continue the deportation.

This idea probably has roots in comments made during his 2016 presidential campaign, when the desperate plight of Syrian refugees was in the news and Trump claimed they were a “Trojan horse” for terrorists to enter the United States.


Trump is referencing a hypothetical image of something that hasn’t yet happened, and encouraging Americans to harden their hearts against its emotional power.

He is extending his frequent dehumanization of immigrants — as animals and criminals — into what might be called the photographic conscience, the visceral power of images to galvanize public sentiment and reorder the priorities of political life……..

After Richard M. Nixon saw Nick Ut’s wrenching image of the 9-year-old Kim Phuc, he said, “I’m wondering if that was fixed.”

Trump, who frequently invokes claims of fake news and lies even though there are easily available transcripts, photographs and video to refute his claims, isn’t suggesting that forthcoming images of suffering migrants will be manufactured or fake — though he will likely make that claim, too.

At the moment, Trump is doing something more ominous.

He is perverting the logic of the photographic conscience. No longer do we see an image of terrible suffering and say, never again. Rather, we imagine the dreadful details of terrible suffering, and then steel ourselves to look away…….

One of Donald Trump’s leading running mate contenders declared on Sunday that the former president, who was found liable by a jury for sexually abusing a woman and also paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to cover up affairs with a porn star and a Playboy model, is “clearly a good husband”.….

Pure gaslighting. He knows better.

I'm a true blue hillbilly who has him identified as being an uncouth ridge running hillbilly. A scoundrel.

A ridge runner is a terrible terrible thing, not a person, a thing.
 
We need to remember how bad it was under Trump. Remember when his admin blocked hurricane aid to Puerto Rico? It was suspected at the time, and confirmed after he left office. Also, look for the name Russell Vought. He is one of the main architects of Project 2025. Scum of the earth.

“The administration of former President Donald Trump obstructed an investigation looking into why officials withheld about $20 billion in hurricane relief for Puerto Rico following the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Maria in 2017, one of the deadliest U.S. natural disasters in over 100 years, a new report says.

A Department of Housing and Urban Development Office of Inspector General report made public Thursday also found that tensions between the department and the Office of Management and Budget resulted in unprecedented procedural hurdles that produced delays in the disbursement of the congressionally approved funds.

It all started after 2018 when OMB began requiring HUD to send grant notices for disaster funds through an interagency review process for approval, making it hard for HUD to publish the notices needed to unlock funding in a timely manner. Investigators found that OMB had never before required such a review process for a notice allocating recovery funds.

Former HUD Deputy Secretary Brian Montgomery told investigators about a phone call he had with then-OMB Director Russell Vought in which Montgomery told Vought the actions from his office were equivalent to holding disaster-relief funds “hostage,” according to the report.”
