It’s been hard to miss the steady drumbeat of articles and think-pieces over the past few months about Election Day war games and post-election planning underway on the left, rooted in obsessive fears that President Trump will refuse to accept an electoral loss, triggering a constitutional crisis and maybe even widespread civic unrest, all in a desperate attempt to cling to power.
“The Left Secretly Preps for MAGA Violence After Election Day,” reads a recent headline at The Daily Beast. “Is Trump Planning a Coup d’État?” asks another recent piece at The Nation. “Is America in the Early Stages of Armed Insurgency?” frets Slate. Similar pieces have run at the Washington Post (“The election will likely spark violence—and a constitutional crisis”), The Atlantic (“What might he do? What should Americans fear?”), Vox (“Imagine that… Donald Trump refuses to concede defeat”), The New Yorker (“Trump’s threats about rejecting the results come November are not idle”), and on and on.
The news hook for most of these articles is a series of elaborate election war games hosted in June by a newly formed organization called the Transition Integrity Project, touted by the media as a bipartisan group of experts consisting of former elected officials, high-level government staffers, consultants, and journalists like David Frum, who wrote the Atlantic piece referenced above.
In other words, the Transition Integrity Project is a cross-section of our elite ruling class. In its own executive summary of the war games, the group states it was founded “out of concern that the Trump Administration may seek to manipulate, ignore, undermine or disrupt the 2020 presidential election and transition process” — never mind the many ways Democrats in Congress and the executive bureaucracy, aided by the media, have been doing just that since before Trump won the 2016 election.
The exercise mimicked the kind of war games sometimes conducted for foreign policy crises, only this time the format was applied to the presidential election, with one team playing the Biden campaign and the other the Trump campaign. The outlandish outcome of these simulations—that in the event of a close election, Trump might “federalize the National Guard and take military control of state voting sites,” as Frum writes — tells us less about what is likely to happen in the real world and more about the mendacious worldview, toxic prejudices, and treasonous imaginings of the elites themselves.
First, the left sees themselves in a hopeless position; Biden is not a winner. Second, losing another election seriously threatens them EVER getting their far-leftist agenda in place. The Democrats are placing all their hopes on voter fraud, political violence and undercutting the Constitution to try and wrest power from the legal owners.
This is China.
Playing around in the shallow end of the pool, THEY don’t have enough foot solders with enough experience to run a real operation. THEY are also not doing the calculations of the good folks that are getting ticked off enough to join a militia and reduce their numbers . Millions of new gun owners and tens of millions of old grumpy military and hunters who love their country and have a hell of a lot of ammo. Ordinary people, people who have never thought about being armed are asking questions, standing in line to purchase firearms, looking for training this is in leftist Calif.
There is literally a gun behind every bush.
As an aside, there is a CA Nextdoor Trump group that has grown from a few people to close to 1,000 in a few months, in the belly of the beast of Silicon Valley. The Biden group is bumping along in the very low double digits. The demographics are all over the map which is awesome, some of the people are from countries that are definitely anti-firearm, others from countries that were/are Communist, some new Americans some admittedly illegals, all with one statement, they LOVE America and President Trump.
Looks like the M.S. Media are going over the top with their fake news and fake headlines The Daily Beast,the New Yorker,The Atlantic and the Washington Post with their usial lies and fake news then they wonder why their sales are down
