It’s fraud when we lose!
The indentured servants here at Blaska Stately Manor are sitting out the big protest 09-18-21 in Washington D.C. (Lawn needs mowing.) Saturday is when what’s left of the insurrectionist movement will demand “justice” for the 639 heroes now being prosecuted for the January 6 attempted takeover of the nation’s Capitol. We are tempted to say something about being careful for what one wishes but let’s move on.
No word yet on whether #45 will address the crowd, encouraging them to “fight like hell,” “take [their] country back,’ “stay strong,” and (wink, wink) “be peaceful.”
The former one-term President who never could win a majority of the electorate is still crying “We Wuz Robbed.” At New York City fire houses on the 20th anniversary of 9/11! Now THAT is some serious chutzpah!
At least #45 did not bellow into a bullhorn that the people who robbed him would hear from all of us soon.
Reports say Capitol Police are prepared (this time). Fencing is going up, so bring your wire cutters along with your zip ties and nooses, patriots! Nancy Pelosi is chugging down her best Napa Valley vintages, lest they be liberated by the hoi polloi who put ice cubes in their cabernet sauvignon.
Who will step into the clown shoes of the horned QAnon Shaman?
Oh sure, Larry has occasional aches & pains.
But how many candidates can make this claim?
Sore loser man
Trump, as he was in Georgia, is proving toxic to our beloved Republican brand. In California, Gavin Newsom was a gone governor until wonder pill pitchman and Trump apologist Larry Elder emerged from a scrum of 46 Republican challengers. Today is the final day of voting and Elder is already celebrating defeat. Never too soon to cry “fraud,” as his website already claims, according to The Dispatch.
“Does anybody really believe the California recall election isn’t rigged?” Trump said Monday 09-13-21. That’s the only way that political juggernaut Larry Elder could lose an election for governor of California!
Low-hanging fruit even for Uncle Joe Biden: “You either keep Gavin Newsom as your governor or you’ll get Donald Trump.”
A legal coup
The keyboard warriors are prepping for the big day, Saturday. Trending now on social media: Did you know the Constitution gives us the right to overturn the government? We’ll cut the civics class dropouts some slack. They mean the Declaration of Independence. At one point, it reads:
Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
This was the Founders’ rationale for cleaving from George 3. Worked then but not at Appomattox four score and nine years later. Maybe this time? The Michigan Militia confronts General Milley, his arms folded. The head Proud Boy whips out the Declaration of Independence.
“Sez here you’ve got to step aside and let us hang Mike Pence!
Whatcha gonna do about it?”
General Milley stands down, frustrated like Captain McCloskey at the hospital when Tom Hagen shows up with licensed guards and threatens a show-cause court order in the morning.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Want to flummox our constitutional survivalists? Ask them with what new government do they anticipate replacing the one the Founders created?
