    The insanity of Trumpism will be talked about like the insanity of McCarthyism one day.

    Trump has shown them the way.

    Just lie and never admit it is a lie.

    It is the way of the fascist.

    I hope that you're right. I'm not seeing it though. The same 20 people that I know who believed the Great Lie still believe it, all these months later.

    I'm talking about when there is no money in spreading the lies anymore and Trump is dead.

    Right now there is nothing to stop Trump from running again.

    Oh, very much agree. And I think that Trump is the odds on favorite to win the republican party nomination. And since the republicans do not need a majority to win an election, I think that odds are slightly better than 50-50 that Trump will win reelection in 2024. A quote that I read the other day: "A coup attempt that goes unpunished “becomes a training exercise.”

    Another capital policeman has committed suicide.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Poverty exists not because we cannot feed the poor but because we can't satisfy the rich.

    Trump definitely tried to get the DoJ to officially get involved in the Coup push.

    It didn't get released... too much "deep state" in the way of the Coup.

    Here is Chris Hayes segment on it.

    Top URL seems busted. Don't know why. But here is a similar one. https://www.cnn.com/2021/08/05/polit...oup/index.html

    This Clark guy should be prosecuted (and of course disbarred).

    Just finished "I alone can fix it".

    Very good for a really dry read. Authors go out of their way to stay in the zone of "just the facts. ma'am". Descriptive prose is minimal, and most of what there is of it came from interviewees.

    For me, the best part is imagining all the Republican coup participant politicians and operatives reading that book and freaking out - "I can't believe he told that guy what I said about this!" The layers of skulduggery and backstabbing were, unsurprisingly, many and convoluted.
    What really stands out is that General Milley was probably the only thing that stood between what we have now and the dystopian nightmare the trumpsuckers were - and still are - determined to visit upon this Country.
