On Friday, the House oversight committee released notes of a 27 December telephone call from Trump to then acting attorney general Jeffrey Rosen, in which Trump told Rosen: “Just say the election was corrupt + leave the rest to me and the R congressmen.” The notes were taken by Richard Donoghue, Rosen’s deputy, who was also on the call.

The release of these notes has barely made a stir. The weekend news was filled with more immediate things – infrastructure! The Delta strain! Inflation! Wildfires! In light of everything else going on, Trump’s bizarre efforts in the last weeks of his presidency seem wearily irrelevant. Didn’t we already know how desperate he was?

In a word, no. This revelation is hugely important.

Rosen obviously rejected Trump’s request. But what if Rosen had obeyed Trump and said to the American public that the election was corrupt – and then “left the rest” to Trump and the Republican congressmen? What would Trump’s and the Republicans’ next moves have been? And which Republican congressmen were in cahoots with Trump in this attempted coup d’état?

Pete,

      As it turned out, Trump didn't really need Rosen's help to convince his cult that the election was corrupt, and that they needed to march on the Capitol to block the certification of Biden's election on January 6th.

      He had ample sales support from the right wing media and Republican members of Congress.

      And now his favorite GOP sales associates are pushing the narrative that Trump's January 6th coup attempt was really a "Deep State" plot involving FBI informants (whose information, obviously, failed to protect Congress from the attempted coup!)

       War is peace.  Freedom is slavery.  Terrorists are tourists.

I've come to think of Jane Mayer as a national treasure.  The video at the end of this article is even more informative than it.  The original article in New Yorker goes much deeper.  Well worth reading.

Makes perfect sense now, Pete.

Apparently, the purpose of this entire "fraudulent" election is to lead Trump supporters to Jesus-- so that they, like Trump, will learn to more capably hoard wealth, defraud people, despise the poor, the sick, and strangers, (immigrants) while fomenting hatred against minority groups, sabotaging healthcare, and grabbing women by the p*ssy... 🤥

Trump brutally mocked over plan to issue membership cards to loyal supporters

By John Wright August 05, 2021

https://www.rawstory.com/trump-cards/

 

"”We're about to launch our Official Trump Cards, which will be reserved for President Trump's STRONGEST supporters," the PAC wrote in the email, asking supporters to vote for their favorite of four proposed designs.

Those who voted by clicking on one of the four proposed designs were, naturally, redirected to a fundraising page.

"We recently met with the President in his Florida office and showed him four designs," the email continued. "Originally we were planning on releasing just one design, but when President Trump saw the cards on his desk, he said, 'These are BEAUTIFUL. We should let the American People decide - they ALWAYS know best!'" the email said.”

"All four of the designs say "Official Trump card" and bear the logo of his Save America PAC. They include the former president's signature above text saying, "Authorized by president Donald Trump," as well as a place for the name of the "member," along with an ID number and the date when their membership began."

“On Twitter, several users pointed out that the eagle on one of the designs bares an eery resemblance to the Reichsadler or "imperial eagle," which was combined with a swastika in the official German national emblem adopted by by Adolf Hitler.”

House GOP Campaign Chair Won’t Rule Out Backing Candidates Who Attended Jan. 6 Riot

At least two Republican congressional candidates were part of the mob that went to the Capitol to overturn the election results.

By Amanda Terkel

“There are at least two Republicans running for Congress who went to the Capitol on Jan. 6.Derrick Van Orden, who’s hoping to unseat Democratic Rep. Ron Kind in Wisconsin’s 3rd District, used leftover campaign funds from his 2020 run against Kind to travel to Washington for Trump’s “stop the steal” rally. Van Orden claimed that he never stepped foot on Capitol grounds on Jan. 6, but a photo from that day shows otherwise.

Van Orden has the backing of powerful House Republicans, including Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), Whip Steve Scalise (La.) and Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (N.Y.).

 

Republican Teddy Daniels, who is taking a shot at challenging Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-Pa.), was also at the Capitol on Jan. 6 and put up a video showing the crowd.

If Daniels shot the video, he would have been well past the police barricades that the mob barreled through.

Daniels also ran in the 8th District in 2020, coming in second in the six-person GOP primary.”

The poopoo image association and resemblance is uncanny...and creepy.

Trump has always presented a fascist bent.

That statement reportedly made by his former wife Ivana about him having but a few books, one of which was speeches by Hitler...rings true to me. I would also guess that Trump's father Fred was sympathetic to the same political and social views.

Steve,

      This is creepy as hell.  More evidence of Trump using the old N-a-z-i propaganda playbook.

      Ivana Trump told Vanity Fair years ago that Donald Trump used to keep a book of Hitler's speeches on his nightstand.

      I was so disturbed by Trumpism a few years ago that I took University of Pennsylvania Professor Thomas Childer's  Great Courses course on the History of the N-a-z-i Empire.

      Some people I know scoffed when I used to point out parallels between Trump's conduct and the propaganda techniques of Hitler and Goebbels-- e.g., vilifying minority groups, fear mongering about foreigners at the border, labeling the opposition press as fake news, "the Lugenspresse," etc.

     Ultimately, as we all know, Hitler was able to quickly destroy a Constitutional democracy and establish a one-party, fascist police state.  By 1933 he was incarcerating opposition politicians and journalists at Dachau.

     I still don't believe it could happen here, but who knows?

Was listening to this old pop song yesterday and was gob smacked how many of it's message phrases ring true as much today as they did 56 years ago.

Eve of Destruction

The Eastern world, it is explodin'
Violence flarin', bullets loadin'
You're old enough to kill but not for votin'
You don't believe in war, but what's that gun you're totin'?
And even the Jordan river has bodies floatin'

But you tell me over and over and over again my friend
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction

Don't you understand what I'm trying to say?
Can't you feel the fear that I'm feeling today?
If the button is pushed, there's no running away
There'll be no one to save with the world in a grave
Take a look around you boy, it's bound to scare you, boy

But you tell me over and over and over again, my friend
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction

Yeah, my blood's so mad, feels like coagulatin'
I'm sittin' here just contemplatin'
I can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation
>>>>> Handful of Senators don't pass legislation <<<<<

>>>>>And marches alone can't bring integration
When human respect is disintegratin'
This whole crazy world is just too frustratin'<<<<<

And you tell me over and over and over again my friend
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction

Think of all the hate there is in Red China
Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama
Ah, you may leave here for four days in space
But when you return, it's the same old place
The poundin' of the drums, the pride and disgrace
You can bury your dead but don't leave a trace
Hate your next door neighbor but don't forget to say grace
And you tell me over and over and over and over again my friend
You don't believe we're on the eve of destruction
You don't believe we're on the eve of destruction
