Like overturning the Constitution?
The January 6 (2021) insurrection wasn’t unique?
Election untruther Janel Brandtjen, exiled from the Republican Assembly Caucus as Wisconsin’s Marjorie Taylor Green, is running for the state senate seat vacated by the retirement of the honorable Alberta Darling in Milwaukee’s country club suburbs.
Cannot improve on Facebooker Karen Mayhew who posted, “I swear to God, Republicans in this state must love stepping on rakes. Clown show Janel!”
Brandtjen is one of the few Republicans among the 65 in the Assembly (after the November election) to swallow whole Trump’s stolen election lie. Along with Rep. Tim Ramthun, who racked up an impressive (Snark Alert!) 6 percent in the Republican gubernatorial primary. Brandtjen chaired the Assembly’s election committee! The 6 percent are in thrall to the Insurrectionist-in-Chief who, in just the past week, invited Hitler admirers to his table before advocating tearing up the Constitution. (But but but … Nancy Pelosi tore up his State of the Union speech!)
"A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution." — Donald Trump, a defeated former President.
→ But what about Hunter Biden’s laptop?
Who will be Trump’s die hard Baghdad Bob?
The Werkes is sponsoring a World Cup event to determine who will keep defending Dear Leader down to the last days in the bunker. Our Round of 16 includes these Republicans In Trump Only (RITOs) responding to a rare statement of sanity posted on social media:
Donald Trump is such a patriot he directly called for us to break the constitution to reinstall him president. Kinda sounds like every dictator. They have some special reason to change the law to stay in power. Donald Trump is a sad and disturbing man.— Matt Ahmann
Now the RITO blowback:
Enjoy the denials, the what-aboutisms, the reinterpretations, and out-of-ammunition name calling!
Mark Steven Zuelke: “No, YOU are a “sad and disturbing man.”
Josh Aura: “The democrats are domestic enemies and you don’t even bat an eye. You hate trump more than you love the country.”
Joe Scheibinger: “Matt, that didn’t happen. You are a slanderer.”
Jeff Kirschmann: “We are very highly suspicious that President Trump would declare such a thing. The ‘elephant in the room’, is, with plenty of evidence of fraud, and millions of ppl aggrieved, why is there no court case yet!?” [BLASKA: 61 court cases aren’t enough?]
Josh Aura: “Notice how he has no issue with the fbi lying to subvert the election and install bjden by telling Twitter to suppress very damaging material against Biden and his bagman son. They literally threw a US ELECTION, and all this beta does is scream ‘but Trump’.” [BLASKA: Despicable, possibly criminally actionable, but no grounds to overturn a Presidential election.]
Diane Kennedy: “What I think he intended to mean is that the apparent fraud that installed the current administration necessitates drastic action to correct. Rather than follow the chain of succession which would lead to another complicit person being installed, we should suspend THAT aspect and do something unique to fix the problem. Resulting in putting him back in the WH.”
Lee Showalter: “He’s not wrong. we should abolish our Republic and the entire government with it.”
Blaska’s Bottom Line and Impertinent Question: Wm. F. Buckley revivified conservatism by calling out the John Birchers, anti-Semites, and other kooks. Can Republicans afford to lose Ramthun/Brandtjen’s 6 percent or will they more than compensate by gaining disaffected Republicans and independents encouraged by the party’s return to sanity? Especially after our under-performance on November 8?
Is this a further result of abandoning the policy of institutionalizing the mentally ill?

I will continue to say Trump had his time but his time has clearly passed. He is now a liability. A slight change in topic: David, do the recent Twitter revelations alter your opinion about the veracity of the 2020 election?

Excellent question, Kooter. Deserves its own blog, essay, book, congressional investigation. The short answer is NO. What counts in an election is HOW they voted, not WHY they voted. That many voters were misled is undeniable for that and many other reasons. A cynic would say that’s what elections are all about, misleading the voters. Then again, Trump may not have won in 2016 without James Comey’s foolishness with the Hildabeast.
Nixon had a better case in 1960 than Trump in 2020.
“Wm. F. Buckley revivified conservatism by calling out the John Birchers, anti-Semites, and other kooks.”
FTR, Buckley was, himself, one of those <i<kooks, as his 1957 treatise Why The South Must Prevail will confirm.
The Gotch trusts Buckley evolved in order to do the right thing rather than the cravenly shameful political expediency which motivated Hillarity, Hopeless Changey, and DementiaJoKe to EVENTUALLY…um…trend away from their pointed refusal to acknowledge SS Marriage in the 2008 POTUS debates.

The political left’s new propaganda narrative that’s being parroted far and wide is that, “Trump made clear his desire for the termination of the Constitution’s election provisions…” with this Truth Social post…
Trump was not making it clear that he desires to terminate the Constitution’s election provisions, he was making it as clear as Trump’s loose cannon mouthed statements usually are (clear as mud) that that is what was already done by the political left to put Joe Biden in the White House.
I have been saying for a while that “The political left has shown its pattern of propaganda lies within their narratives so many times since 2016 that it’s beyond me why anyone would blindly accept any narrative that the political left and their lapdog media actively push?”
I’m not a Trump fan or supporter and yes Trump’s loose cannon statement was unethical and poorly worded as usual (applying the Julie Principle), but someone should answer Trump’s question directly. NO Mr. Trump, there is no provisions in the Constitution to throw out the results of the 2020 election, declare a different winner of the 2020 election or have a new election to replace the 2020 election and Donald Trump needs to accept those verifiable FACTS and move on. Joe Biden IS the current President of the United Sates and will remain so until Constitutional conditions are met that puts someone else in that position.

For those that don’t already know…
It appears that Trump replied to the arguments that he wants to terminate the Constitution’s election provisions…
I think this sentence, “What I said was that when there is ‘MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION,’ as has been irrefutably proven in the 2020 Presidential Election, steps must be immediately taken to RIGHT THE WRONG.” pours gasoline on the “terminate the Constitution’s election provisions” fire.
NO Mr. Trump, you cannot right the wrong of the election no matter what they were, to do so would bastardize the constitution like the Democrats have been doing since 2016! Trump should have kept his blathering loose cannon mouth shut but in my opinion this post by Trump does verify the political left’s arguments.
After this loose cannon mouthed reply from Trump that’s basically verifying what the Democrats were saying, I retract my December 6, 2022 at 8:33 am comment above.
