The Insurrection Act

A up and coming word of the year, ‘insurrection’ and the last guy to hold the White House considered invoking the Act……

As protesters near the White House demonstrated against the killing of George Floyd last summer, aides were preparing a proclamation allowing President Trump to put active-duty US troops on the streets of the capital. The document was drafted after an angry Trump told the attorney general and military leaders he wanted to deploy troops in the city on June 1, the New York Times reports. They dissuaded the president, but aides decided to have the proclamation at hand, should Trump change his mind. The Insurrection Act of 1807 gives the president the power to dispatch military and National Guard troops anywhere in the country, per the Hill, in the event of insurrection or civil unrest. That was the day that protesters were forcibly removed from Lafayette Park, across from the White House, and Trump held up a Bible outside St. John’s Church, per CNN.

The former president told the Times he did not want to send in active-duty troops. “It’s absolutely not true, and if it was true, I would have done it,” Trump said. But officials said the president brought the notion up again over the next few weeks during demonstrations in other cities. Trump was especially irate at being embarrassed in the eyes of other nations. “We look weak,” he told Attorney General William Barr, Defense Secretary Mark Esper, and Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Nonetheless, all three resisted using the Insurrection Act, officials said. White House aides also brought up the possibility of a federal takeover of the District of Columbia’s police force.

The Brain Dead Party

Of course I am talking about the GOP.

And the Supreme Court has made it official……

In a stunning decision last week, the Supreme Court ripped the mask off the Republican Party. According to the nation’s highest court, the party no longer has anything to offer the American people.

Of course, the Supreme Court didn’t say that directly, but that’s the indisputable meaning of their ruling to uphold the Affordable Care Act. Seven justices — including two appointed by Donald Trump — rejected, for the third time, a Republican Party attempt to overturn the public health plan passed by Congress in October 2009.

Read between the lines of their decision. In effect, the Supreme Court told Republicans: Look, get serious. ObamaCare’s been around for almost 12 years now. You promised to “repeal and replace” it with something better, yet never came up with a plan of your own. You voted to repeal it 54 times in the House, but never got enough votes in the Senate. This is the third time you begged the Supreme Court to kill it for you, but couldn’t even convince your fellow conservatives to do so. In the meantime, the Affordable Care Act’s more popular than ever — and 31 million Americans have now signed up for health care coverage. You lost this battle. It’s time to move on.

The GOP is becoming as irrelevant as possible thanks to their devotion to the likes of Trump….the party is losing the urban and the suburban voters…..

The Republican Party is in a bind after the Donald Trump era destroyed the GOP in urban and suburban areas, according to a report by The New York Times.

The newspaper interviewed former San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders, who left the Republican Party one day after the January 6th insurrection by Trump supporters seeking to overturn the election.

“I don’t think the right has kept up with the times,” Sanders told the newspaper.

“Across the political map this year, Mr. Sanders’s diagnosis of his former party appears indisputable: In off-year elections from Mr. Sanders’s California to New York City and New Jersey and the increasingly blue state of Virginia with its crucial suburbs of Washington, D.C., the Republican Party’s feeble appeal to the country’s big cities and dense suburbs is on vivid display,” the newspaper explained. “But the party’s growing irrelevance in urban and suburban areas also comes at a considerable cost, denying conservatives influence over the policies that govern much of the population and sidelining them in some of the country’s centers of innovation and economic might. The trend has helped turn formerly red states, like Georgia and Arizona, into purple battlegrounds as their largest cities and suburbs have grown larger and more ethnically mixed.”

Since polls have proven to be anything but accurate we will see just how good this on is in 2022.

I believe we will be surprised.

Keep in mind that 57% of Repubs think the election as stolen through voter fraud…..and that would include the urban and suburban voter.

It says nothing good about our country that 1 in every 3 people apparently believe Joe Biden only defeated Donald Trump in the 2020 election through outright fraud. It is similarly unfortunate that the more than 30% of the country who do believe that has largely stayed unmoved by “facts” and “reality” for the past few months, according to a just-released poll from Monmouth University.

“The continuing efforts to question the validity of last year’s election is deepening the partisan divide in ways that could have long-term consequences for our democracy, even if most Americans don’t quite see it that way yet,” Monmouth University Polling Institute Director Patrick Murray explained in a statement accompanying the poll, published Monday morning. Indeed, a full 57% of Republican respondents affirmed that they believed Biden “only won [the 2020 election] due to voter fraud.”

The GOP political consultants see the light…..

According to a report from the Washington Post, close aides to Donald Trump, as well as high ranking Republican Party insiders are doing all they can to discourage the former president from hastily making endorsements of Republicans with an eye on the 2022 midterms believing they could come back to haunt the party looking to regain power in Congress.

Is anyone listening?

The GOP has been brain dead since 2010…they offer this country nothing but obstruction and division…..and the voter licks it up…..

So just who is brain dead?

This is interesting info….but will it make a difference in 2022?

As it appears today….I think not.

Any thoughts?
