The decisive issue in 2022 and 2024 -

The division in the country is no longer between the
traditional conservative Republican and liberal Democratic
parties, but between the Trumpist Dixiecrat cult of
personality party and the anti-Trumpist rule of law party.

Traditional conservatives who still think of themselves
as Republicans should avoid making the Franz von Papen
mistake.

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

They must understand that Trump's rage against them is
even greater than his rage against Democrats, and any dirty
election tricks his minions can engineer against Democrats
in the general election, will first be used twice as hard
against anti-Trumpists in the GOP primaries.

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-election-officials-pressure-campaign/2021/12/22/8a0b0788-5d26-11ec-ae5b-5002292337c7_story.html

And Trumpism will not end with Trump; he has numerous
would-be successors competing for media attention.
So Trumpism might be a threat to American constitutional
democracy for years or decades instead of months.

It's time for anybody who truly embraces the rule of law
and the Enlightenment ideals of America's founders to
stand up and be counted - and not among the Trumpists.

Democrats' secret weapon!

Trump spends his time "fighting Republicans rather
than Democrats and plotting his revenge against the
10 Republican House members who voted for his second
impeachment, the seven Republican senators who voted to
convict him and the 13 House Republicans who voted for
the bipartisan infrastructure bill."

"McConnell won’t release an agenda before the
midterms. He’s worried that specific proposals are
nothing but fodder for Democratic attacks." That's
right!    Keeping the REAL agenda secret is essential to
minority rule.

But who need an agenda, real or imaginary?
"Republican candidates allow their Democratic
opponents to define them negatively — and then,
take office in January 2023 with no idea what to do.
They assume they will win next year without doing anything
of significance. "         They know exactly what
to do - get on Fox as often as possible to praise Trump!
Was there anything else?

Traditional conservatives still cling - like a drowning
man to wreckage - to their fantasy that the GOP is a
traditional conservative party instead of a Trumpist
Dixiecrat personality cult.

 https://www.nytimes.com/2021/12/18/opinion/trump-republicans-2022-midterms.html

Democrats just need to keep hammering on the message that
the Trumpist Dixiecrat GOP is the party of personality
cult, class warfare, violent overthrow of the Constitution
- and pleading the fifth amendment.

Is regional federalism the only way out?

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

Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion
to their disposition to put moral chains upon their own
appetites, - in proportion as their love to justice is
above their rapacity, - in proportion as their soundness
and sobriety of understanding is above their vanity and
presumption, - in proportion as they are more disposed to
listen to the counsels of the wise and good, in preference
to the flattery of knaves.   -- Edmund Burke

 https://apnews.com/article/joe-biden-minnesota-presidential-elections-capitol-siege-elections-8d9e92a27a90511bf8f3f7f9540d44c2

Trumpists, and those who pull their strings by controlling
their finances with dark money, have revolted against the
Constitution and the Enlightenment ideals of its authors,
rejecting

1 rational inquiry and belief in an objective reality,
in favor of feelings

2 rule of law, in favor of rule of men, or better ONE man

3 equality of all people before the law and before the
Creator, in favor of a hereditary nobility class

In later words, they reject government of the people,
by the people, for the people.      They believe the
people unfit to govern themselves, and take every step
possible to make them that way and keep them that way.
And they reject non-violence as a means to their ends.

Just how close are we to another civil war?

"The core idea is that race is a social construct,
and that racism is not merely the product of individual
bias or prejudice, but also something embedded in legal
systems and policies"

1619 was indeed the founding date of Southern feudal
hereditary aristocracy based on slavery, then segregation,
and now suppression.   Read about the compromises of
1820 and 1850, the KKK and Plessy v Ferguson, Woodrow
Wilson segregating Civil Service.      It wasn't just a
few bad people, it was foundational for a whole society.
Abernathy recognizes this.

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/12/13/theres-lot-conservatives-embrace-critical-race-theory-question-is-what-we-should-do-with-it/

But Abernathy repeats the mistakes of many traditional
conservatives in thinking that Trumpist dogma is
intellectual and can be proved right or wrong.  That's
utterly irrelevant.      The dogma is intended to bypass
the intellect and go straight to the adrenal glands.

Just because Trump calls himself a conservative doesn't
mean he is one.       He's a personality cult, which
works the same way from the far right to the far left.
And he's a personality cult in service, probably unaware,
of that same Southern feudal hereditary aristocracy,
now spread throughout rural America.

This is what was taught and not taught to 7th graders in
Virginia in the 1960's -

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/slavery-history-virginia-textbook/2020/07/31/d8571eda-d1f0-11ea-8c55-61e7fa5e82ab_story.html

If you look at your paper money, all the men pictured
were Masons or indicated a desire to become Masons,
except Jefferson - who associated with Masons all his
life and was a brilliant expositor of Masonic ideals.
Masons have an ideal of masculinity -

 https://freemasonsfordummies.blogspot.com/2018/12/the-ideals-of-freemason.html

Nowadays Trumpists have a different ideal -

"If toxic masculinity is worth doing, it’s worth
overdoing"

Trump owns the Trumpist Dixiecrat GOP, to the chagrin of
his would-be successors, who have to pretend to love him,
and the even greater chagrin of traditional conservatives,
who now have no home until they recognize that the choice
in 2022 and 2024 is pro-Trump or anti-Trump.

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/12/06/trump-comments-undermining-democracy/

It seemed that most of the traditional conservatives were
willing to abandon Trump on Jan 7, but they must have have
gotten different marching orders from their donors, some of
whom also seemed to back off from Trump, but most of whom
apparently reconsidered quickly.     Perhaps they decided
that Trump would help elect a minority-rule-defending
Congress in 2022 but would be incompetent again in 2024
and wouldn't get in their way - electing Trump would block
somebody more dangerous for four more years.

But his incompetence and malice toward those he considers
disloyal might jeopardize the GOP majority in 2022 or
pack it with idiots bad enough to get Democrats back
in 2024.   Subordinating his own personal desires to the
best interests of a team is not in his DNA.

So as insurance, major donors seem to have gotten fully
onboard rigging future elections by gerrymandering, voter
suppression, and enabling state legislatures to overturn
elections wherever they can.       That way GOP can still
win even if Trump gets in the way.

Give Trump credit for proving for once and for all that
traditional conservatism was never a mass movement.
Trump correctly perceived that most of those who voted
for traditional conservative legislators out of habit
were really just making the best of it until their REAL
messiah appeared.      Their advent is over and they expect
Trump to be installed as president in 2025 if not sooner.

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/12/03/gops-vaccine-shutdown-gambit-what-it-says-about-whos-charge/

Marjorie Taylor Greene, Paul Gosar, and the rest are sure
THEY are the embodiment of the Trump base, and the sooner
the weak sisters are removed, the better.

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/12/01/marjorie-taylor-greene-says-shes-gop-base-not-fringe-well-see-2022/

By now all traditional conservatives should understand that
they are not welcome in the modern Trumpist Dixiecrat GOP
cult of personality.

 https://www.cnn.com/2021/11/25/politics/marjorie-taylor-greene-kevin-mccarthy/index.html

By now all surviving Trumpists - like McCarthy - who are
soft on GOP non-Trumpists - are not really welcome either.

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/boebert-mace-islamophobia/2021/12/02/092f8eae-52b8-11ec-8769-2f4ecdf7a2ad_story.html

McCarthy has let his desire to become speaker inhibit
Trump's vengeance on the disloyal.    So Trump is looking
for a more loyal and vengeful Speaker.

Even better, what if Trump ran for Congress in 2022 in some
safe district and demanded to be elected Speaker, so he
could succeed Biden and Harris after they were impeached
and convicted for the high crime of opposing Trump?
Wouldn't that vengeance feel good!

And poor Kevin would have debased himself for nothing.
But Trump enjoys watching people debase themselves for
nothing, in the hope - often in vain - of some fleeting
favor.  Just ask Mitt Romney!  Maybe Trump would let Kevin
be majority leader.

But even better - Trump could be elected Speaker without
ever running for the House!  The Constitution only says
that "The House of Representatives shall choose their
Speaker" and does NOT say that the Speaker must be
a Representative.  The President of the Senate is not a
Senator, after all.

A message from the leader of the original Republican Party
to the Dixiecrats who have taken it over in our lifetime -

"Fellow-citizens, we can not escape history. We of
this Congress and this Administration will be remembered
in spite of ourselves. No personal significance or
insignificance can spare one or another of us. The fiery
trial through which we pass will light us down in honor
or dishonor to the latest generation."

 https://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/documents/second-annual-message-9

Delivered 159 years ago today.

But, following Dear Leader Trump, the modern Trumpist
Dixiecrat GOP gives no heed to observing precedents from
the past or setting them for the future.

Give Trump credit for proving for once and for all that
traditional conservatism was never a mass movement.
Trump correctly perceived that most of those who voted
for traditional conservative legislators out of habit
were really just making the best of it until their REAL
messiah appeared.      Their advent is over and they expect
Trump to be installed as president in 2025 if not sooner.

And as for the opinion of the latest generation?  Today's
Trumpists and Trump enablers will all be dead by then,
so why would they care?

"Having election deniers run elections is like having
arsonists take over the fire department"

Of course!     That's the whole idea!     Loyal Trumpists
will never lose another election!

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-allies-election-oversight/2021/11/28/3933b3ce-4227-11ec-9ea7-3eb2406a2e24_story.html

Traditional conservative Henry Barbour -

"I don’t hear people in Mississippi talking about
whether the election was or wasn’t stolen"

Trump will call him a RINO if he isn't out there ACTIVELY
convincing people that the election was stolen.

Democrats are COUNTING on Trump and his enablers to push
the Trumpist Dixiecrat GOP ever further into the past,
purging every last bit of traditional conservatism from
his personality cult.        Which prominent Republicans
are publicly opposed?

In the Trumpist Dixiecrat GOP, " there are lawmakers,
strategist and donors who are very comfortable having no
agenda whatsoever."

"Among the party’s voters, activists and media
personalities, meanwhile, there remains a clear appetite
for Donald Trump in full — nourished by the very
America-in-2021 desire for politics to be high-stakes
TV entertainment rather than boring attempts to cobble
together governing majorities."

 https://www.nytimes.com/2021/11/27/opinion/republicans-trump.html

No agenda except opposing the Democrats - that's good
enough for preserving minority rule.     Politics as
reality-TV is a good reinforcement, keeping the masses
focused on everything except what matters.

Trumpism at its finest - performing for Fox instead of
the nation.

"Greene voted against awarding the Congressional Gold
Medal to police officers who defended the Capitol during
the Jan. 6 attack"

But the Congressional Gold Medal - Churchill, the Dalai
Lama, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa... and
Kyle Rittenhouse?

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/greene-rittenhouse-congressional-gold-medal/2021/11/24/c09980d2-4d49-11ec-a1b9-9f12bd39487a_story.html

Even Gaetz doesn't like it.      Unless Trump says it's OK.

As for Rittenhouse - that's the future he's chosen - to
be a poster boy/stage prop for ambitious reactionaries
like Greene, Gaetz, Trump, and Tucker Carlson, who will
drop him like a hot potato if he ever becomes inconvenient.
But it's not as if Rittenhouse has a lot of other promising
career paths to choose from.      Who'd hire him outside
the reactionary right Trumpist Dixiecrats?

Traditional conservative George Will identifies Josh
Hawley as a progressive, somewhat in the mold of Theodore
Roosevelt.

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/11/19/progressives-have-republican-soulmate-senate-his-name-is-josh-hawley/

It's meant as an insult, but it's wide of the mark.  Hawley
would definitely find a place in National Socialism, but
his main ideology is self-serving opportunism - proving
him a spiritual heir of Donald Trump more than anybody
else, which Hawley will deny if he ever dares to take on
Trump directly.

"Listening to Hawley talk populist is like listening
to a white progressive Upper West Sider in the 1970s try
to talk jive. The words are there, but he’s trying so
hard it sounds ridiculous."

Preston Brooks would be so proud of Gosar -

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

When legislators espouse violence against each other, GOP

Unclear on the concept of personality cult!

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2021/11/15/trump-aide-taylor-swift-white-house-warning-fired/

“I’m allowed to listen to whatever music I want”
- WRONG!

TRUMP is allowed to listen to whatever music he wants.
YOU are allowed to listen to whatever music HE wants.

McEntee was making a list and checking it twice.

"Trump supporters understand there really is no time
for internal squabbling or hurt feelings"

Really?    Trump hardly has time for anything BUT his
hurt feelings and desire for revenge.     As Trump goes,
so goes his base.

 https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/29/us/politics/glenn-youngkin-virginia-governors-race.html

But Youngkin really is a perfect Trumpist - worth $400
million - probably more than Trump - and perfectly willing
to pretend to be just like Trump voters and perfectly
willing to say one thing and do another.      An ideal
defender of minority rule!

No point reciting facts to a Trumpist!   Only feelings
matter.

 https://www.mercurynews.com/2021/07/08/memo-to-gov-noem-trash-california-after-south-dakota-grows-up/

Noem is only interested in capturing the feelings of as
many Trumpist voters as possible for her presidential bid.

 https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/02/us/politics/kristi-noem-south-dakota-republicans.html

 https://www.facebook.com/KristiNoemforPresident/

Californians who want to sample South Dakota life without
masks can try a summer in Bakersfield (represented
by Trumpist Kevin McCarthy) and a winter in Alturas
(represented by Trumpist Doug LaMalfa).      And as delta
progresses, available ICU beds will probably be nearer
from those places than from anywhere in the Dakotas.

For the local equivalent of Silicon Valley - there's the
South Dakota School of Mines.   And the commute's easier!

But neither Santa Cruz nor Doheny are within a day's
drive from anywhere in the Dakotas.    And South Dakota
has fires too -

 https://wildlandfire.sd.gov/history.aspx

On the whole, it's like lutefisk - pretty unappetizing if
you didn't grow up with it.    But Noem, by her personal
example, makes a pretty good argument for regional
federalism -

Trump will run again - he wants to, and his sycophants
know that and will tell him what he wants to hear, that
he'll win.

Apparently the major GOP donors are OK with that - hence
McConnell's change of tune since Jan 7.     From their
point of view, an incompetent and likely senescent Trump
is preferable to his abler and bolder would-be successors,
who might actually attempt revolutionary changes.

 https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/09/opinion/republican-party-2022.html

The times to draw the line were in 2015 and 2019.  Instead,
GOP leaders just got in line.

Any independent commission empowered to examine under oath,
subject to penalties for perjury, Trump, Pence, and their
staffs, and Hawley, Cruz, and the rest of the enablers,
would find enough to convict or disable much of the GOP
congressional delegation and quite a few state officials,
and perhaps would take down the passive as well as the
active enablers in swing districts.     So it won't happen
on a bipartisan vote, and now we know that filibuster
will remain intact, so it won't happen on a partisan
vote either.

Washington declined a chance to be King, Jefferson died
bankrupt, Lincoln was shot, Theodore Roosevelt split the
Republican Party!Trump would NEVER lose like that unless
the contest were rigged and stolen!

Instead, why not put Trump up where he belongs on Stone
Mountain?  Trump is a Southerner now!

with those WINNERS Jackson and Lee!  And also carve in the

Or those leading the way to the future -

Cruz, DeSantis, Hawley, and Trump!

Any of them would be proud to be carved in stone next to

Don't believe what leftist elitists write in history
books - trust your feelings about what happened and is

"What's in it for me?"

GOP leaders are trying in vain to get Trump to focus on
the GOP instead of himself.     They are unclear on the
concept - Trump is GOP is Trump.   L'état, c'est moi!

He doesn't care if the Republicans control Congress if
he's not president.       It's more important to him to
exact revenge on everybody who has failed him, lining up
pure Trumpists to primary the traitors.    Get them out
of Congress and out of his party.    Then he'll be ready
to run for president in 2024.

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-republicans-retribution/2021/05/07/daf0cd4e-ae7c-11eb-b476-c3b287e52a01_story.html

One way he can weed out weak sisters is by telling bigger
and bigger lies louder and louder to see who hesitates
to say Amen.     It's a real test of character that GOP
legislators fall over themselves to fail.    Not that
they get anything for their loyalty - just ask Mike Pence,
or the insurrectionists facing Federal felony charges.

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/05/07/decline-fall-elise-stefanik/

By traditional standards, Cheney is far more conservative
than Stefanik.     But in Trumpthink, Conservative =
Trumpist.      Not Trumpist, not conservative.     The
reality is that the modern Trumpist Dixiecrat-Republican
Party is not conservative - or liberal - but an
ideology-free zone, a cult of personality.

Lindsey Graham's fantasy is that Trump is trying to grow
the GOP base.

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/05/07/lindsey-graham-fox-news-2022-midterms/

Trump knows better than that; like major GOP donors, he
knows that their only future is in suppressing Democratic
voters, not finding imaginary new GOP voters.  If you've
got the donors you can get the voters by flooding the zone
with propaganda.    Who cares if it's true or not?

So what if he's leading the GOP down into the same dark
hole as the Whigs?     Why would he care what happens
after he's gone?  Après moi le deluge!

==

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees! for ye make one
proselyte, and make him twofold more the child of hell
than you.

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/05/07/trump-his-perpetrators-bystanders-own-republican-party-incompatible-with-democracy/

Applies to legislators and media stars, too!   It's bad
enough to be ignorant, but to know better and repeat
lies anyway?    For what shall it profit a man, if he
shall gain the whole world of eternal life and honor,
and lose his next election?

But you can't be half-hearted about minority rule.
You'd lose a fair election, so use all means, fair or foul.

"53 percent of conservatives still say being a
Christian is important to being an American"

 https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/05/07/no-wonder-nativists-are-panic/

The Trumpiest Trumpists don't need rich Jewish supporters,
only their money, and everybody knows how that ends -
"where we send Soros, we send all".   They rioted
with Confederate flags and Camp Auschwitz shirts and
crosses and Q's, not Magen David.     Will Trump even
be interested in Israel after Netanyahu is gone?  Do any
of Trump's many vicious would-be successors have Jewish
in-laws?

The GOP leadership has pivoted from blaming Trump to
praising him.      Next step - pivoting from blaming the
rioters to praising them, as Trump did from the first.
What Trump says goes - until one of his vicious would-be
successors figures out how to sideline Trump for good,
while blaming somebody else.      Sound familiar?

The magic of minority rule!

 https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/21/opinion/trump-republicans.html

It's all about diverting attention - from what's important
- to what isn't.    Pay no attention to the major donor
behind the curtain!

As is evident at every campaign rally, Trump is a master
salesman and attention diverter.   Unfortunately for the
major donor behind the curtain, Trump's own attention is
diverted to his own personal grievances rather than the
donor's problems of maintaining power.

Just what you'd expect from the Scammer-in-Chief.  Now all
the GOP candidates will do the same.

 https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/03/us/politics/trump-donations.html

Roy Cohn would have been so proud.     Roger Stone probably
is proud.     GOP voters better be very careful - and just
mail a check.

And as you've probably guessed, there are no 10X matching
donations to anything.      In fact almost all matching
donation claims are suspect - industry standard practice
seems to be to lie.

Actblue and all Democratic candidates and committees should
shut down all recurring-donation options and forswear fake
matching-donation claims.     No need to imitate Trumpism.

Wreak vengeance by primary on all RINO's who opposed him or

but the important thing for Trump is to insure Trumpist
party discipline for the next step -

2024 - restoration - Restore Trump in the White House and
Trumpism in Congress by ANY means necessary.      Sure some
of the leaders of the foot soldiers will be languishing
in prison, but there are plenty more to replace them from
Trump's base, and the prisoners can perhaps look forward
to pardons once Trump is back in power.      The base is
behind him no matter what!       They'll be trained and
equipped so they won't fail THIS time!

Lindsey Graham has already signed in blood for another
enlistment!        But has he brought the donors to

 https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/14/politics/lindsey-graham-trump-acquittal-2022/index.htm

Evidently Graham was  misquoted -

when he said "count me out. Enough is enough"
he really meant "you can count on me - nothing is
too much to ask" or as G Gordon Liddy said "Just
tell me what corner to stand on".

It'll be the corner on the Capitol steps next to the
jury-rigged gallows.

McConnell has to figure out how to regain his majority
despite Trump's hopes to run loser fringe revenge
candidates.  McConnell has no mass appeal; he has to work
through donors.

“Marjorie is strong on everything and never gives up

GOP leaders have realized that Greene is not inimical to
the Trumpist Party, she IS the Trumpist Party, along with
others like her.  And the Trumpist Party/personality cult
IS the Republican Party.

 https://apnews.com/article/marjorie-taylor-greene-facebook-65c25a3f2ba05cc2393584c5ab5a7fa2

Minority rule depends on whatever allies it can get -
anybody who can get stirred up by words and doesn't care
what laws actually pass.

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

The leadership has calculated that though educated suburban
women voters might come and go, the crazies are with Trump
forever and have to be accommodated.  So once again, there
will be no consequences and the crazies will get crazier.

Why Mitch won't put up with Trump any more, though he's
not quite ready to say it in public.

McConnell has devoted his career to maintaining minority
rule - and insuring his re-election - through thick and
thin by keeping his fractious caucus together no matter
what - preventing votes from coming to the floor that would
be divisive.      His reward is that he's mostly gotten his
way on anything coming through the Senate.     This means
that he has probably subordinated his personal preferences
at times for the good of maintaining his caucus.

Trump, in contrast, never subordinates himself to anything
or anyone.     He is excited about the prospect of spending
the next four years persecuting the RINOs who were not
fully loyal to him.

 https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/16/us/politics/republicans-trump-leadership.html

Of course, the Trumpists are the true Republicans in
Name Only - with no traditional Republican ideology, they
happened to land in the Republican Party only because it
had to accept them to bolster its minority-rule coalition.

Persecution of some Republicans by others means the end
of McConnell's caucus.       The only clear path forward
for either half of the Republican Party is to foment a
corresponding split in the Democratic caucus - and they
do have ideological Democrats sympathetic to that cause.

 https://apnews.com/article/biden-inauguration-joe-biden-donald-trump-capitol-siege-trials-0537f114e8574bd39dcfa45f22730a7a

Put another way, McConnell is a master of public
self-restraint who thrives behind the closed doors of
his caucus, a discipline antithetic to a self-promoting
public cult personality like Trump - and that contributed
to his downfall.
