Ex-national security official pours cold water on Peter Navarro's second civil war warning

https://www.rawstory.com/second-civil-war-peter-navarro/

This is why the DOJ arrested over 1,000 people for the January 6 insurrection. (my words).

"I don't want to mitigate this threat. As you know, I talk about political violence all the time," she explained. "But I don't want to alarm Americans into thinking that, you know, a large jump, a large number of Americans really are ready to take up arms in a civil war against their fellow Americans. I don't think we are there yet. I think we are in a very dangerous place because of the rhetoric and that brings fear, and fear to people that prevents them from participating in democratic processes, and that's one of the things we need to worry about, in my view, even more than are we really gonna have war on streets of the United States of America."

''Most alarming political ad': Pro-Trump activists release disturbing campaign message'

https://www.rawstory.com/if-i-was-the-deep-state-pro-trump-activists-release-disturbing-campaign-ad-2662374482/

We're in it now, people. The indictments must be imminent. (my words).

Scroll down the article to see Frank Luntz twitter account for video.

'If I was the deep state and I wanted to destroy America, I would rig the election with a puppet candidate, one that was so compromised that they would never say a word about it. I would create a false flag that allows for mail-in ballots. I would be in charge of the ballot-counting machines. I would create a false flag to blame all who question the results of the election.

If I was the deep state, I would prosecute anyone that went against me. I would sue and prosecute anyone that spoke up about the fraudulent election. I would use my powers to shut down all your internet businesses and bankrupt you.

If I was the deep state, I would make everyone an example why you should never question a Democrat ever winning an election. I would imprison my foes. I would use my corrupt das and blackmail judges to destroy you. I would make sure all crimes I ever committed never happened. I would prosecute my biggest competition. I would make sure they could never run for office ever again.

If I was the deep state, I would convince everyone that Ukraine Nazis were good and women are men.'

'never fuck with your brand: x marks the very stupid spot' JEFF TIEDRICH

'every morning, Donald Trump wakes up and tortures his few remaining hairs into that famous fucked up rat’s nest of cotton candy bullshit that sits atop his big dumb pumpkin head. he then puts on one of his shapeless, ill-fitting, off-the-rack cheap blue suits, and finishes it off with a ludicrously long red tie.

he looks like a fucking clown. and you know what? he knows that he looks like a fucking clown. but he does it anyway.do you know why he does this? because it’s his brand. Donald Trump is a fucking moron, but he absorbed one lesson from all his years of being a game show host on TV: never fuck with your brand.

you can spot Donald Trump a mile away. he’s counting on that. if Trump went on TV tonight wearing a well-tailored suit and with his hair combed back in a dignified manner, you wouldn’t hear a word he said. you be too busy trying to figure out what the hell was going on. that’s why you never fuck with your brand.'

I was waiting for Trump to turn threatening. Of course he does it by proxy. Here it is...

'Trump promotes threatening video: ‘We are going to do things to you that have never been done before’

Overnight Donald Trump promoted a video featuring an extreme close-up photo of his face in black and white, and audio of him making an obvious threat: “If you f— around with us, if you do something bad to us, we are going to do things to you that have never been done before.”

Trump’s promotion of the threatening video in the early hours of Thursday morning comes just after one federal judge on Wednesday refused his request to transfer his criminal trial in the porn star hush money case being prosecuted by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to the federal court system, where the ex-president had hoped to be able to use federal law to protect him from prosecution. It also comes just after a different federal judge refused his request for a new trial in a civil case where a jury awarded E. Jean Carroll $5 million after determining he was liable for defamation and sexual assault.

Trump’s promotion of the video also comes after the Special Counsel sent Trump’s attorneys a letter on Sunday informing them their client is a target in the investigation into Trump’s alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election he lost to Joe Biden, including the events surrounding the January 6 insurrection.'

Joe Biden just keeps on giving to the American people...

https://heathercoxrichardson.substack.com/p/july-19-2023?utm_source=substack&utm_medium


LETTERS FROM AN AMERICAN: HEATHER COX RICHARDSON

'Biden promised to enforce antitrust laws....In the 1980s...Reagan and his people advanced Bork’s position, abandoning the idea that capitalism fundamentally depends on competition. Industries consolidated, and by the time Biden took office his people estimated the lack of competition was costing a median U.S. household as much as $5000 a year.

The administration’s focus on restoring competition had some immediate effects... That law was part of the solution that brought ocean-going shipping prices down 80% from their peak. It worked with the Food and Drug Administration to make hearing aids available over the counter, cutting costs for American families. It also has worked to get rid of the non-compete clauses which made it hard for about 30 million workers to change jobs. And it began cracking down on junk fees, add-ons to rental car contracts, ticket sales, banking services, and so on, getting those fees down an estimated $5 billion a year.

The Department of Agriculture will work with attorneys general in 31 states and Washington, D.C. to enforce antitrust and consumer protection laws in food and agriculture. They will make sure that large corporations can’t fix food prices or price gouge in stores in areas where they have a monopoly. They will work to expand the nation’s processing capacity for meat and poultry, and are also promoting better access to markets for all agricultural producers and keeping seeds open-source...Having cracked down on junk fees in consumer products, the administration is now turning to junk fees in rental housing, fees like those required just to file a rental application or fees to be able to pay your rent online.'

BOOM: Donald Trump is getting fucking indicted for election interference JEFF TIEDRICH 7/18/2023

https://www.jefftiedrich.com/p/boom-donald-trump-is-getting-fucking?utm_source=substack&utm_medium

'justice is coming, and there’s not one thing that Donny or his ace team of parking garage lawyers can do to stop it...

Little Donny Fuckface is experiencing a Big Sad this morning, because The Guy Who Convicts War Criminals In The Hague just sent him a target letter, giving him four days to appear before the Grand Jury investigating election interference. Donald is having just a wee bit of a meltdown right now in his shitty New Jersey golf-motel-and-wife-cemetery...so, now we get to spend the next four days playing America’s favorite new guessing game: how many counts will Donny be indicted for this time?

will there be counts for obstruction of an official proceeding?
will there be counts for inciting an insurrection?
will there be counts for the fake electors scheme?
will there be counts for obstruction of justice?
will there be counts for fraudulent fundraising?
seditious conspiracy, anyone?

it’s like Christmas in July. Jack Smith is making America great again, one indictment at a time..stay tuned.'
