Trump tried to overthrow the government by unconstitutional
means - a lynch-mobocracy - just as America's founders
feared.    The Jan 6 committee hearings summarize the
case against Trump.  But delusional guys try and fail to
violently overthrow the government every day.

Yet Trump almost succeeded! - because of all his enablers.
Will the Jan 6 committee focus for a public hour on these
Trump enablers who knew better but gladly went along for
the ride anyway?     Will the Department of Justice?

The enablers include the House Freedom Caucus, most
Senate Republicans, the clown car full of lawyers
touting imaginary evidence and legal theories, and
all the rest - Bannon, Stone, et al - everybody that
refused to testify under oath, or pled the 5th, or sought
a pardon.     And everybody who chose to protect minority
rule with  a Trumpist Dixiecrat Republican Party built on
a foundation of delusional and violent fringe single-issue
constituencies.

 https://www.political-scrapbook.net/2020-minority.html

They can refuse the Jan 6 committee and get convicted like
Bannon; likewise they can refuse a Federal grand jury and
face the consequences, and then perhaps get another chance
at their own criminal trial, or in the case of lawyers,
before their state bar associations.

 https://www.msnbc.com/opinion/msnbc-opinion/doj-criminal-probe-targets-trump-garland-should-target-lawyers-n1297500

They all deserve a Franz von Papen award -

 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_von_Papen

So considering Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt and
Eisenhower and even Reagan, who are the real Republicans
in Name Only?

Trump, like his role model Putin, is obsessed with the
Great Man Theory single-handedly changing history, even
though America's founders designed the Constitution to
prevent one Great Man from being able to run the country.

 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_man_theory

But Trump only failed because of a few  humbler men -
and women!  - who showed greatness in a moment of crisis
and changed history.    The Jan 6 committee highlighted a
few of these Constitution enablers who knew there would
be a heavy price to pay, but did far more than their
duty anyway.  When do they get their due recognition -
that constitutional government depends not just on words
on parchment but on personal character and courage of
leaders and citizens?  Such as Pence, Rosen, Raffensperger,
Goodman, Hutchinson, and many more.

What legislation will the Jan 6 committee finally recommend
to disable future insurrectionist Trumps and von Papens
and enable future defenders of the Constitution?

Watch the last public hearing if you missed it!

Hearings are expected to resume in September.

What would you do on your last day on earth?   Probably
call your family to say goodbye.   That's what Pence's
Secret Service detail did on Jan 6.

 https://apnews.com/article/jan-6-hearing-takeaways-da9e850c8744a3d4395928cf19eaf36f

Of course Trump didn't call off the mob as long as they
seemed to be succeeding!     He sent them home only when
it was clear that they had failed.

Freedom Caucus founder Mulvaney says Republicans must
watch Jan 6 hearings.     Especially since most of the
witnesses are Republicans testifying under oath.

 https://www.charlotteobserver.com/opinion/article263174168.html

But will anybody listen to him?   Especially from the
Freedom Caucus, who sought pardons, refused to testify,
or pled the fifth?

Arthur Bremer is out of jail now.

 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Bremer

He didn't have any issue with Nixon's or Wallace's
politics.    He just wanted to be famous.    Like so many
assassins and mass murderers.

Meanwhile Trump hoped to look powerful!

 https://apnews.com/article/capitol-siege-biden-presidential-elections-election-2020-congress-eb90b5a11a77fe528fa610cccb442c1e

But first he had to overpower the Secret Service which
is there to protect him.      From Arthur Bremers.
Trump evidently never considered that some of the
armed people in the mob would be just as happy to become
famous shooting Trump as shooting Biden or hanging Pence.
Lucky for Trump the Secret Service overpowered him.

We better get started with regional federalism sooner
rather than too later.

 https://www.political-scrapbook.net/2020-regional.html

Minority rule is fortifying itself by every means possible.

 https://www.political-scrapbook.net/2020-minority.html

There is a playbook for civil war, and the radical right
is following it.    The GOP leadership either cheers them
on or keeps quiet, in order to preserve minority rule.

What has been revealed today?

Knowing the rioters - "his people" - were armed
and headed toward the Capitol, Trump WANTED to lead the
riot in person, and struggled to get his Secret Service
detail to agree.    At the time it had seemed that he only
SAID he would join the rioters, with the real intention
to retreat to a safe place.

 https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics/watch-live-jan-6-committee-hearings-day-6

Giuliani and Meadows were so concerned about their exposure
that they inquired about pardons.

So-far unnamed persons have been trying to convince Jan
6 committee witnesses to perjure themselves.

And Trump expresses himself by throwing dishes - for other
people to clean up.

The fly on the wall gets a special hearing.

 https://www.cnn.com/2022/06/27/politics/cassidy-hutchinson-former-meadows-aide-testify-january-6-committee-hearing/index.html

Expect the Trumpists to spend a lot more energy attacking
the witnesses and the committee than disproving the
factual allegations.    Because they can't - and Trumpism
was never about facts anyway.

Too bad we can't hear from the translator who was the
only witness of the private conversations between Trump
and Putin.     But that's a separate crime and separate
investigation.

Dec 13 2016 - "Republican electors should vote
for Mike Pence for president and Donald Trump for vice
president"

 https://www.political-scrapbook.net/archive/electors.html

Too bad for the country that didn't happen.

Mike Pence did almost nothing for four years - causing
little harm - he praised no foreign dictators, made no
money from his office except his salary, and invented no
big lies of his own.    Too bad he was too willing to be
a loyal lieutenant to the Big Liar in Chief.

But then in the moment of national crisis he was strong and
defied the Big Liar - at great personal risk of harm from
the Trumpist lynch mob.     That's how he'll be remembered.

 https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/jan-6-probe-says-pences-life-was-in-danger-during-capitol-riot-after-he-rejected-trumps-demands-here-are-the-other-takeaways-from-the-hearing/ar-AAYAl28

Of course, if Pence had been president, that national
crisis would not have occurred.    He might even have been
re-elected.   Biden's 2020 margin was only 43,000 votes -
Trump's in 2016 was only 78,000.

Jeffrey Clark thought the 5th was a good move.

 https://www.cnn.com/2022/02/03/politics/jeffrey-clark-justice-department-plead-fifth-january-6/index.html

The highlight of the third day of Jan 6 hearings?

 https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-lawyer-john-eastman-knew-jan-6-plan-was-illegal-asked-for-pardon-afterward-committee-hears/ar-AAYySIP

John Eastman decided to ask Trump for a pardon.   He didn't
get it - so Trump must have thought Eastman's usefulness
was at an end.    Trump granted pardons when he expected
future benefits in return.   Eastman  later pleaded the 5th
to the Jan 6 committee, joining Clark in admitting guilt.

That growing rumble in the distance?

“If the law is against you, talk about the evidence.
If the evidence is against you, talk about the law.
And if the law and the evidence are both against you,
then pound on the table and yell like hell”

 https://quoteinvestigator.com/2010/07/04/legal-adage/

That's not thunder - it's the sound of pounded tables!

 https://www.msn.com/en-us/entertainment/news/how-to-watch-jan-6-insurrection-hearing-everywhere-except-fox-news-which-wont-cover-it/ar-AAYdJrI

In this case, with the facts and the law against them,
Trumpism's defenders have to pound on the Jan 6 committee's
legitimacy, hoping to drown out the facts it uncovered,
the lawbreaking that merits punishment, and the fragile
laws that need repair.

Scott Perry and Jeffrey Clark - unsung heroes of the
(ongoing) insurrection.

 https://www.cnn.com/2022/04/26/politics/mark-meadows-texts-scott-perry-key-role-overturn-election/index.html

Oddly enough, they don't want to testify under oath
about their actions.     Scott Perry is now head of the
Freedom Caucus and looking forward to investigating the
Biden administration next year - for being Democrats.
Like Benghazi, they don't need to find anything, but just
keep repeating the same nonsense as long as the TV cameras
keep showing up.

"while US foes like Russia and China are escalating
efforts to discredit democracy in the US and worldwide,
their goals are shared by Americans working to destroy it
from the inside."

Navarro accused the Jan 6 committee of being "domestic
terrorists."

"Trump always appeared to view the presidency as a
personal entitlement with which he could do what he liked
rather than a sacred trust meant to advance and defend
the national interest."

Why not?    That's how he always viewed everything.
No higher purpose for anything than aggrandizing Trump.

Very Trumpist - trying to have it both ways.      Somehow
persuade the public that RNC was (implicitly) talking
about peaceful protesters, while - nudge-nudge-wink-wink
- letting the fringes know they were also talking about
the violent insurrectionists.    These "peaceful
protesters" were the ones intentionally signing
fraudulent electoral vote certificates - part and parcel
of the same plan as the violent insurrectionists - and
equally worthy of investigation by the Jan 6 committee,
not to mention DOJ.

GOP wants to whitewash the big picture by preventing
the Jan 6 committee from finding out how it happened -
who planned and financed the insurrection.       As usual,
the big shots are the most guilty, and are the least likely
to face adverse consequences.     Other people's money,
other people's blood, other people's jail time.

 https://www.cnn.com/2022/02/08/politics/mcconnell-mccarthy-rnc-censure-resolution-january-6/index.html

On this point, however, McConnell is with the rule of law.
Not so McCarthy, who sees a rosy future for himself within
the cult of personality.     But Trump will never forget
what McCarthy said right after.

Attorneys warn Jan 6 defendants not to count on Trump
pardons.      He could have pardoned them while president
- and didn't.           Anyway Trump loyalty goes uphill
only, and he issued pardons in return for specific future
benefits - favors to to do things, or favors not do do
things - Omertà!

Just look at poor old Tiger King Joe Exotic.   He spent
big bucks to buy a pardon - his lawyers stayed at the
Trump hotel -

 https://www.nydailynews.com/snyde/ny-joe-exotic-team-10000-tab-trump-hotel-pardon-20201126-73se3pmflvaktk3krnr5fkzknm-story.html

the limousine and hairdresser were ready and taped effusive
thanks to Trump -

 https://www.koco.com/article/joe-exotics-legal-team-absolutely-confident-he-will-receive-presidential-pardon/35248007

but Trump had bigger fish to fry and left him to die in
jail from prostate cancer.     How much good could a dying
man do for Trump?    Not many cameos at campaign rallies.

 https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/joe-exotic-trump-fool-not-pardoning-tiger-king-2-proves-innocence

At least his lawyers made out like bandits.     As far as
that goes, Trump said he'd pay his supporters' legal fees
- and didn't.    Instead he accumulated $122 million for
- Trump!     And got the RNC to pay his own legal fees.
Other people's money - other people's jail time!

So the Jan 6 foot soldiers should realize that they are
just expendable foot soldiers - with plenty more where
they came from -

 https://cnn.com/2022/02/05/politics/trump-pardon-us-capitol/index.html

Some have already figured it out; others are just slow

Pence said the obvious - Trump was wrong.     He got
no applause from the Federalist Society for that line.
Is it another Trumpist front organization now?

 https://apnews.com/article/mike-pence-donald-trump-election-2020-84ff467d9ff5bfaad084e274f69ac521

Give Pence full credit for courage in support of the rule
of law on Jan 6, and some credit for pointing out the
obvious to a hostile audience today.       But looking
over his whole tenure in the White House, it's hard to
see how he rises to presidential stature.

He could increase his stature by providing full and
complete testimony under oath to the Jan 6 committee, and
directing his staff to do the same.      That would insure
his honored place in history.      Continuing to waffle in
hopes of capturing the Trump base of voters and donors -
will cement his place in the house of wafflers.

A lot of hot air or a critical turn for the worse?  Trump
has proved that his hot air can start a conflagration.

Trump implies demonstrators should protect him from
criminal investigations.

 https://www.cnn.com/2022/01/30/opinions/trump-rally-dangerous-obeidallah/index.html

Gingrich implies Jan 6 committee should be in jail.

 https://www.cnn.com/2022/01/24/politics/newt-gingrich-jail-time/index.html

Georgia DA requests FBI aid on physical security.

 https://www.cnn.com/2022/01/30/politics/fulton-county-da-fbi-letter/index.html

And he still thinks Pence could have and should have
overturned the election on Trump's behalf.

 https://www.cnn.com/2022/01/30/politics/trump-pence-2020-election/index.html

Trump is testing the character of every GOP legislator
and official, perhaps intentionally in order to purge
those with shaky loyalty.  Those who dodge the issue are
the worst.       Will any of them have the guts to say
"enough is enough, I was wrong to support Trump,
and he is not qualified for any position in the party
or government" ?      Not many are still willing to
stand up for traditional conservative rule of law.

The great sorting out of the GOP - who's for cult of
personality and who's for rule of law?

Re-elected Trump might pardon insurrection criminals.
Or maybe just the ones that never blamed him in court.
But a pardon from Trump certifies guilt, perhaps more than
a conviction - something to think about in terms of future
job prospects.

Why didn't Trump just issue a blanket pardon before he
left office?  Maybe he wanted to see who would stand with
him until the end!  They can be his Leibstandarte!

 https://apnews.com/article/capitol-siege-steve-bannon-joe-biden-donald-trump-crime-934c38eb247dd8839e8985ff966b7bc5

"taking down names and kicking ass"

Mo Brooks meant that only metaphorically, of course -
but he knew full well that his audience took it literally
and acted thereon.        He must have known trouble was
coming when he put on his bulletproof vest.    He could
have notified the FBI, but didn't bother.   His plan A
didn't work, but fortunately his plan B is in progress.
That's pretty much the story of his political career.
Truly a son of Preston Brooks, by spirit if not by flesh.
Not nearly smart enough to claim descent from Mel Brooks.

Ultimately the only guard rail of democracy is are citizens
that agree on basic principles, even if they disagree
on application.

There has always been a minority of Americans that reject
outright the Enlightenment ideals of the founders embodied
in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
What's new is that a national party - not just a regional
faction of a party - rejects the same ideals - and
explicitly caters to that minority.

Who cares whether Trump wanted "stay peaceful"
in his tweet after the violence already started?  Everybody
knew he didn't mean it, and was just covering himself in
case the insurrection failed - as it did.  He was watching
the violence with glee - from a safe distance, after
promising to accompany the insurrectionists to the Capital.

"What brazen politicization of January 6 by President
Biden" - Lindsey Graham

 https://www.cnn.com/2022/01/06/politics/lindsey-graham-biden-jan-6-insurrection-speech/index.html

What's Graham been smoking?     Jan 6 was 100% political
in conception, execution, and whitewashing afterward,
all to preserve minority rule by cult of personality.
It was already politicized far above Biden's poor power
to add or detract.

 https://apnews.com/article/jan-6-capitol-siege-biden-congress-3dd8fd804c857c23f8e0fe2324c9d8a4

Biden didn't want this task.     But Trump makes it
impossible for any politician to avoid, by rehashing old
lies over and over until enough people believe them.

 https://apnews.com/article/capitol-siege-joe-biden-donald-trump-ap-fact-check-election-2020-10bf58cd37e30c51478ad8bdc5a0a2e2

As far as Trump is concerned, you are either 100%
for Trump or 100% against.     Biden would have
preferred to negotiate bipartisan bills with traditional
conservatives.    But Trump intends to primary any GOP
bipartisan collaborators.  So Biden has to meet the moment
and address the root cause of Congressional failure.

 https://apnews.com/article/joe-biden-elections-donald-trump-0145c353d3a44ab10b0e063a8adb73a1

“I am deeply disappointed at the failure of many members
of my party to recognize the grave nature of the January
6 attacks and the ongoing threat to our nation.” -
Dick Cheney

What's Cheney been smoking?    Why does he think the
GOP is in any way HIS party?     The Trumpist Dixiecrat
personality cultists want nothing to do with traditional
conservatives named Cheney or anything else.
