Expecting that midnight knock at the door

From Marshall Law himself!

A great schism has come to the Republican party. It may result in an equally great purge, such as the sainted Bill Buckley rid the conservative movement of anti-semites, racists, and John Birchers in the mid-1950s. Thirty years later, Goldwater and Reagan marginalized the Rockefeller eastern establishment.

Question is, who gets purged? Blaska and other realists or the bitter enders willing to subvert the Constitution to save their hero, the self-destructive (but somehow infallible) Donald Trump?

martial law

Trump’s Christmas die hards have taken to their social media bunkers with conspiracies that make the supposed fakery of the moon landing sound credible. A sampling:

  • “The Electoral College votes have NOT been counted. They are sealed until January 6, 2021. Another trick by the fake news!”
  • “Trump won by a landslide.”
  • “Not a single penny to WISGOP unless WI state legislature votes to decertify November election!”
  • “Democrats are not blocking us; it’s the RINO anti-Trumpers.”

In case of our disappearance

Though the Werkes voted Trump,  Trump’s putsch people demand we be arrested for treason under “marshall law.”

Every faction has its kooks (they’re running Madison WI) but Robert Gerald Lorge of Bear Creek WI claims some stature. Son of a former state senator, a candidate for that office himself and for Lt. Governor of the state, he is an attorney and producer of some excellent honey.

Hungary tanks

What happens when you vote wrong

Mr. Lorge wants the President to declare martial law

David Blaska: How does that play out, Mr. Lorge? … like one of those banana republics, suspend habeas corpus? Shut down CNN and the NY Times? Military tanks in the streets? Line up opponents against the wall with a cigarette and a blindfold? Midnight knocks at our doors? People “disappeared”? Who enforces? Not the military, which took an oath to the Constitution, not (unlike Nazi Germany) an individual. Am I on your hit list?

Robert Gerald Lorge: “I think the gallows are just for all those engaged in defrauding this election, if that you, so be it.”

Blaska: Who and what army will march them? Under what court order? You call for insurrection, civil war, domestic terrorism and then accuse your political opponents of treason!

Lorge: “… The military in martial law would have several options, but foremost those guilty would be apprehended by force, and stood up for trial by military tribunals. Habeas Corpus would be suspended …  There would be a lockdown … to prevent rioting, looting and pillaging like we have already seen by leftists. I imagine all broadcast and cable news would be suspended.” 

“Maybe the heads of the Biden camp would be dragged out of their houses like they had their corrupt crooked FBI do to Flynn  … Lincoln even hanged a few belligerent Congressman, but that might be going a bit far since the public might want to see many more of them hanged. … If the leftists start shooting at our military, I and many other citizens would help the military shoot back GLADLY if authorized.”

G. Washington

Truly Orwellian

Whew!

It’s not just Mr. Lorge. The “We The People Convention” took out a full-page ad in the Washington Times urging Trump to “immediately declare a limited form of Martial Law, and temporarily suspend the Constitution.” CNN (which works hard to justify its mistrust) reported that retired Gen. Mike Flynn talked martial law at the White House. We turn to the level-headed Jonathan Turley:

It was an outrageous and reckless statement that was tantamount to a call for tyranny.   [However,]  … it was not some agenda item of a meeting of the Trump Trilateral Commission. 

Despite his alarming rhetoric, Trump has complied consistently with court decisions and worked within the legal system. If he or his successor ever defied the court, they would be removed from office. … Even if Trump lost his mind, he would have to carry out a martial rule without the military.  The military has said to leave it out of such bizarre discussions.

Blaska’s Bottom LineDonald Trump should issue a statement decrying the sloppiness of the November 3 election but recognizing the results — if he wants to save the country and his cause.

    It has been the cancer of the far-left wing of the Democrat Party – The Occupy Movement, Antifa, BLM – that has pushed this country to this point. It started with Bush-Gore, although not nearly to this extreme. It intensified when Trump was elected, with his defeated opponent and former First Lady stating that she will become part of “The Resistance”. That helped embolden the aforementioned kooks, and with the help of Soros funding and the complicity of the MSM – here we are! Republicans MUST retain the Senate, then begin work on January 1 on regaining the House. It’s there for the taking, within about 10 seats now, and with the division among the Dems between the radical left-wing Dims led by wild-eyed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the over-the-hill-gang of Pelosi, Hoyer, Nadler, and Schifface. Get to work, GOP! No excuses.

    Dave,
    If, as I suspect but do not know, the election outcome was produced by illegal activities and fraud, then Biden should not become the president. As Jim Troupis explained on Vicki’s show, no court case has been decided on the merits of the evidence of fraud, illegal actions, rigged voting machines and/or biased software. Consider that for a minute. The courts refused to hear the evidence. (review Peter Navaro’s report)

    YOU have been silent about what recourse citizens have for illegal elections. You seem to reflect respect and admiration for those who fought (and died) for the Consitution, YET, you are willing to accept fraud and illegalities “to save the country.” WTF ! What about future elections? Fraud and illegal activity will not reform themselves! They will continue. Romney and the Lincoln Project are not coming to the rescue. By allowing presidential elections to be determined illegally, what protections do any of us have against mob rule and Woke expropriation actions to create “social and racial justice?

    Reparations and free medical benefits for illegal’s are only the beginning. You may reject the views of Lorge, but you have remained silent about all other remedies to illegalities.

    Vichy France is not a model for the future. Did you really stake your personal integrity with Romney and the other Quisling Rino’s?

      “Quislings.” Strong words, ill used. AKA: hyperbole. Total respect for the legal acumen of Jim Troupis. Did the best with what he had. But no allegation of forged ballots, double voting, fake voters. Citizens followed the precepts as laid down by election clerks. To disenfranchise voters for the mistakes (however intentional) of ministers is undemocratic. Besides, is it so hard to believe that four years of Mr. Chaos lost Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania after somehow drawing an inside straight four years earlier against the Hildabeast?

          Trump brought many into his tent as he chased others out. Problem is he never had a majority of Americans. Won 2016 by a lucky inside straight in a few keys states like Wisconsin, PA, and MI. All very narrowly. Trump was horribly served by the corrupt news media, which peddled increasingly desperate lies (Russian collusion, nothing to see on Hunter Biden, Trump is a racist). But the guy picked needless fights with potential allies. Responding to the news media’s baiting during the once-daily Covid briefings was his final undoing. He lost 2020 in Wisconsin’s WOW counties and their equivalents in Arizona and Georgia — NOT because of Dominion voting machines. In any event, Trump is supposed to be the Master of the Universe but he got played by Joe Biden? He was supposed to drain the swamp but after 4 years the swamp won?

        My rejoinders to your affirmation and rationalization of a Biden victory. –>

        * Your personal distaste for Trump’s attitude, language, etc., has NOTHING to do with the question of whether the election processes were in violation of state law, though that unprincipled view is common to most liberals.
        * What was the effect of the Wisc. Election Commission’s illegal refusal to prune the voter roll by more than 200,000 entries? How much fraud occurred from dead people who voted, ballot harvesting in nursing homes; from non-residents and illegal aliens?
        * Illegal ballot harvesting in Madison with Zuckerberg funds that promoted voting in the parks.
        * Illegal voting by those who did not complete absentee ballot applications, as REQUIRED by law — even though WEC denied a place on the ballot for Kanye West for a 14-second violation. That action, alone, could have turned the outcome to a Trump victory.
        * WOW counties were NOT Trump losses as you claimed in another post.
        * And, you have ignored what remedial actions must be taken to eliminate fraud before the next election.

      If this was a legal election, then by all means, we need to concede gracefully. But millions of us don’t think it was fair. And why should we?

      I’m not sure how anyone can look at the evidence, the hundreds of sworn affidavits & testimonies, the data dumps, the missing USBs, the statistical improbabilities, the fact that as Trump is winning on election night, counting comes to a halt, then when it resumes, Biden is in the lead.

    Luckyesteeyoreman, 12/17/20 from ethicsalarms blogsite:
    “Election.” Stolen. Rigged. All talking around the truth. All of you.
    Say the words: It. Was. A. COUP. Say them! Don’t talk around them.
    Trump has been ousted, and is now President-In-Exile. Biden is now President-In-Title-Only [PITO] – not a legitimate president – not a lucky outsider like Trump, but A REAL ONE [PITO].

    This blog might, just might, already have been infiltrated by agents of the junta. They’re watching. And they ARE coming. Just watch. The junta knows they pulled off a coup. They just don’t want to hear you say what they know. Because it works best for the junta, for people not to say what everyone knows to be true, if in any way that truth is adverse to the junta. NO ONE who exposes the junta’s corruption must be left un-monitored. NO ONE who dares to introduce “revolutionary” (“seditious” *) – even the least bit contrarian – thoughts and suggestions to the general public in opposition to the junta, must be left undetected, un-tracked, and eventually, un-personed. Disappeared. Just watch.

    *I predict that in 2021, “seditionist” will overtake and replace even “racist” as the predominant Ultimate Cancel Culture Curse – the ultimate (ironically) “Trump Card” – the ultimate Curse Card and Dog whistle to license the leftist mob’s no-limits-to-means personal destruction of any suspected “seditionist.”

    Since your “hateful” thought-crimes remain naked to the junta, you can expect a visit. Or, some kind of de-platforming – one way or another. Along with a steady drumbeat of pro-junta propagandizing through blog comments. Trust no one, because none of the junta – from its figurehead P.I.T.O., Biden, to the lowliest, most eager-to-prove-themselves-by-any-means-necessary activist, all dressed in black and throwing frozen water bottles at cops out of mobs they blend into and hide in – trust you. You have seen how skillful and successful the junta’s troops are, from the rioters to the media hacks to the pro athletes and other entertainers, to the utterly immune university (and student) staffs, to the Big Cyber oligarchs.

    ~~~> I bet they’ve even convinced many of you that the November coup was non-violent! But no: THIS coup was VERY violent; it simply was executed in a manner that gaslighted anyone who would dare to speak about the truth of the protracted, asymmetric urban warfare. Warfare, that was strategically and tactically executed like someone in control of heating a pot of water – heating it ever so slowly, that a frog in the pot (symbolizing the people of the “right resistance”) is oblivious to the rising water temperature – ultimately, failing to hop out of the pot to “slimy safety” before being gradually scalded to death.<~~~

    ***Well, RIBBIT! They gotcha. But, you don’t sense the heat yet.***
    So, what are YOU going to DO about it?

    People love Trump because he’s not part of the ruling class, doesn’t talk down to us, and is one of the few who actually fights for us and puts America first. Giving up in the face of apparent fraud would feel like a betrayal, and would only hurt the GOP.

    The main arguments are fatally flawed to argue in court.

This was a known issue in April when the huckster Jill Karofsky won a 10 year term on Supreme Court. Last I checked the do nothing Republicans in legislature sat on their hands and did and have done nothing to clarify the rules and to put punishment on requesting an absentee ballot illegally. Actually what have they been doing, absolutely nothing at all. Covid is not an excuse to stop working for the State of WIsconsin.

    Voting is a fundamental right, you cannot take the stance that each Votes is illegitimate until proven Legitimate that just cannot be the way elections are held. You have to assume each Vote is legitimate and any vote can only be thrown when it is found to be fatally flawed and not proven legitmate. The bar is set high on purpose.

    Our politicians have sold their souls to the Devil, which is communism. There is a remarkable book called “The Devil and Karl Marx” by Paul Kengor that everyone should read. https://www.tanbooks.com/the-devil-and-karl-marx.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIgfybj7Dh7QIVRq-GCh0C1AlFEAAYASAAEgI1VvD_BwE That and the online book: “Tortured for Christ”, a book by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand who lived in Romania when it was taken over by the Nazis, then the Communists. http://www.g4er.tk/books/Tortured%20For%20Christ.pdf

    Yes, we are fast coming to the day when we will have to take up arms in order to stop the inevitable.

    I just ask that all Americans pray long and hard to hopefully avoid that day; to let the hand of Divine Providence guide us in these troubled times and the troubled times ahead.

    I love this account by Sergio Lopez, describing the troubled times Abraham Lincoln went through in his writing about Elizabeth Keckley who had been born a slave but went on to be a confidante to the First Lady, Mary Lincoln during the civil war. https://www.americamagazine.org/faith/2020/10/27/abraham-lincoln-book-of-job-civil-war-bible-united-states.

    At the beginning of the article he wrote that Elizabeth Keckley had seen how despondent President Lincoln was at the way the war was progressing. He wrote: Mary Lincoln asked President Lincoln:

    “Where have you been, father?” Mary Lincoln asked him.
    “To the War Department.”
    Any news?” she asked.
    “Yes, plenty of news, but no good news. It is dark, dark everywhere.”

    At that point President Lincoln picked up the Bible and started reading “The book of Job”. Job is a good man who suffers greatly at the hands of Satan in the Biblical account. A man who has been given much, but has seen all of it taken away.

    Later in the text the writer remarks: “By the end, Job has a newfound resolution that is, paradoxically, born out of resignation and submission before the awful and awe-inspiring power and glory of God. Job regains a sense of his own agency only when he sees that he has none; no matter what he does, he is subordinate to God’s will.”

    I can only pray that we Americans will submit to God’s will and let His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

    Read, Study, Pray.
