There's a fine line b/w being aware & alert vs paralyzed with despair. Sadly, it's very hard to do
Violent clashes between the police and protesters erupted across Belarus on Monday after President Aleksandr G. Lukashenko declared victory in a vote widely dismissed as fraudulent.https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/10/world/europe/belarus-election.html
(a) DJT incompetence
(b) October Surprises
(c) DJT Health
(d) Will of the People
The only reason DJT has been 'successful' in anything has been the well-oiled evil machine of current GOP
FoxNews as sole info for 40% of ppl
White Supremacist Christian Movements
SCOTUS stacked w/partisan hacks
bullying of the MSM
neglect of abusive bosses in media & industry
tacit acceptance of W-Suprem in US culture
All built-in rot that DJT uses
In contrast, compare to a very talented evil crook: Dick Cheney. He got away w/war crimes & grand theft
DJT's group aren't good at crime
i. state sponsored espionage & cyber-hacking
ii. complicity of Facebook etc
iii. MSM bending backwards b/c they've been bullied into coddling Nazis AND b/c they thought HRC was going to win
Please remember this. DJT squeaked in. https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-comey-letter-probably-cost-clinton-the-election/
Another reason he fails so often is that he's evil but stupid
His plots are stupid b/c he lacks facts. Destroying USPS is insane. It's a universal good.
Basically, Trump is all circus and no bread
One of his worst approval periods was Jan 2019. Why? The insane gov. shutdown. That's what USPS gambit reminds me of.
Anyway, his gambits are brutal but not effective. Basically, terrorism. We're left with paralyzing fear.
I'll discuss the next 3, (b) October Surprises, (c) DJT's health & (d) Will of the People, soon.
We're worried Barr and/or GOP Senate will try to rig up a Biden scandal, weaponizing the DOJ & other investigations. It worked very well with w*kileaks (GRU operation) & the NY FBI pressuring Comey (see above, it was the last nail in the coffin)
More importantly, almost all of DJT's recent bizarre gambits immediately fizzle b/c of his shot credibility: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-ignored/2020/08/08/01aacfa6-d76f-11ea-9c3b-dfc394c03988_story.html
More than 3½ years into his presidency, Trump often finds himself minimized, as many of his outrageous or groundless statements are briefly considered and then, just as quickly, dismissed.https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-ignored/2020/08/08/01aacfa6-d76f-11ea-9c3b-dfc394c03988_story.html
@HoarseWisperer said (great thread), we've become habituated to DJT's crazy https://twitter.com/HoarseWisperer/status/1288297451451973632
There are real events that are imminent.
e.g. (i) The newest Senate Intel. Cmte report: https://thehill.com/policy/cybersecurity/510590-senate-intelligence-panel-approves-final-russia-report-moves-towards
The Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday voted to adopt its fifth and final report on Russia’e election interference efforts in 2016, with committee leaders vowing to keep working towardshttps://thehill.com/policy/cybersecurity/510590-senate-intelligence-panel-approves-final-russia-report-moves-towards
Anything can come forward, especially from his underage victims. Maxwell can cut a deal; physical evidence abounds. He's very guilty of the worst crimes
Again, both women can release information. Court discovery is a potent weapon. https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/jean-carroll-trump-lawsuit/2020/08/06/ef4b10f2-d82f-11ea-aff6-220dd3a14741_story.html
Trump had tried to delay the suit from journalist E. Jean Carroll while an appeals court considered a similar, but separate case.https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/jean-carroll-trump-lawsuit/2020/08/06/ef4b10f2-d82f-11ea-aff6-220dd3a14741_story.html
In every case above, plus the recent revelation that an over-classified report abt. Nov., damaging info can be leaked https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/511189-blumenthal-calls-for-declassification-of-materials-detailing-russian-threat
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said intelligence detailing Russian efforts to influence the 2020 elections should be declassified and made available to the public before ballots are cast.https://thehill.com/homenews/senate/511189-blumenthal-calls-for-declassification-of-materials-detailing-russian-threat
We're already seeing this avenue w/the #RussianBounties. The IC leaked that. Why not his tax returns? Or even more damaging stuff?
& in real life for each Ukraine-gambit by DJT I have RussianBounties by anti-DJT on the other side
Next two: (c) DJT's health, (d) The Will of the People
