September 2020. THE ELECTION THAT COULD BREAK AMERICA. The Atlantic. An article by Barton Gellman.

Here’s the link.

https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2020/11/what-if-trump-refuses-concede/616424/

This article discusses the problems the nation would face if Trump lost a close race. Guess what? It wasn’t a close race and Trump is still fighting the will of the people.

With today’s exposure of the Roger Stone video, video shot by a Danish film crew, video I’ve heard about since just after Jan. 6, I thought of this article again. I so clearly remember reading this at the time it was published. My blood ran cold. My friend had read it, too, and she called me just as heartsick and concerned.

I bring this up because I’m getting very frustrated with some media types who act as though this plan wasn’t out there and that we weren’t put on notice ahead of the election. I’m more than frustrated-a bit angry, too-that there seems to be no journalist putting this together. Journalists don’t need to work as prosecutors do. They should have sources in various agencies. I don’t believe for a minute that Trump’s band of misfits keep tight lips. I wish for investigative journalists who break new ground and piece together the greater conspiracy. Who planted the bombs on the night of Jan. 5? How did Stone interact with the Proud Boys? Tell me about what Hawley, Cruz, Gosar and the rest of the self-righteous traitors were doing in the run-up to Jan. 6.

There’s so much more. I’m not going to be satisfied until there are bright lights on it all.

At least TFG won't be Commander-in-Chief of the military this time. But his cabal will still be dangerous, and will stop at nothing to install him in the White House again.

Kicked and recc'ed.
