Seems a bit silly to ask that question right now since the democrats have control of the white house plus slim majorities in both houses of congress, but this story over at gunfreezone.net raises the question:
The top US military officer, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Mark Milley, was so shaken that then-President Donald Trump and his allies might attempt a coup or take other dangerous or illegal measures after the November election that Milley and other top officials informally planned for different ways to stop Trump, according to excerpts of an upcoming book obtained by CNN.
In my experience, projection is a hallmark characteristic of the left. In virtually everything they do, they ascribe their bad behavior and motives to the other side. Anti-gunners constantly spew vitriol and hatred at their opponents and then claim that gun rights supporters are hateful and violent. Democrats demand defunding of the police and then claim that it’s the Republicans trying to defund the police by failing to pass their pork barrel spending bills that have nothing to do with police. The left spends all summer burning cities, looting businesses, disrupting the lives of innocent citizens and violently attacking anyone who doesn’t agree with them, then they claim that “right wing extremism” is the most serious threat the country faces. They insist that minorities, especially blacks, are incapable of succeeding in a modern society without the assistance of whites and then claim that those who believe everyone should be treated equally regardless of race are “white supremacists”.
I could go on.
The point is, the worrying question about the story linked above to me is this: Did they truly believe that Trump was planning to attempt to use the military to stay in office after the election – or was this just another case of leftist projection?
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, the plan all along has been for Biden to serve 2 years and 1 day…even if they have to prop him up and work his mouth like a puppet at the end…and for Harris to take over on January 21, 2022. At the same time, they plan to steal enough congressional seats in the 2022 midterm so that they’ll simultaneously have a “true believer” that’s beholden to them for her ascendency in the White House, and firm majorities in both houses of Congress. Under the Constitution, Harris will be able to serve two additional full terms in addition to the 2 years minus one day of Biden’s term (assuming they can keep stealing elections). 10 years is plenty of time to consolidate and complete their control over all of the federal law enforcement agencies and the military, pack the supreme court and pass every unconstitutional “law” they ever wanted to ensure their power forever.
If, however, the states are able to clean up the election procedures to the point where we have a relatively honest election in enough states in 2024, Harris will lose.
In that event the left will be apoplectic that their plans are going awry. The fact that they were ascribing the possibility of a coup to Trump, and their penchant for projection, leads me to suspect that the reason a coup was on their minds is because…well…it’s on their minds.
Food for thought. Keep your powder dry.
