The FBI raid on Trump’s Mar a Lago home has stimulated some calls for a Civil War (The Independent on MSN). These outbursts only appeal to a small percentage of people. Tweets calling for an uprising increased because of the incident (Business Insider).
Most of these people blame the left, democrats, for a conspiracy to destroy Trump. However, a Federal Judge risked his career to approve a warrant that the FBI duly served. It is no secret the former President took classified material home and ignored requests to return it. What this investigation is about hasn’t come out yet.
More importantly; what political group has the most to gain by stopping Trump? The right is divided between Trump supporters and old school republicans. Trump lost the last election by a landslide and divides the GOP. The right has more to gain than the left.
Furthermore, if one considers the Jan 6 fiasco calls for a Civil Uprising are incredibly dangerous; to Trump supporters. The Jan 6 White House stupid show resulted in Trump supporters having their pictures taken by the NSA and, later getting arrested. It did not result in Trump taking the presidency. A Civil Uprising by Trump supporters will have a similar result – Trump supporters in jail (or dead) and a more vehement case for gun control. Quite possibly there would be the imposition of martial law.
The minority Trump supporters do not have the financing, organization or firepower to forcefully take over the US. Attempting to do so would be suicide – don’t believe the hype. To whom are these people listening to? The Lemming Kings.
Has anyone considered these calls for Civil War might be for the purpose of eliminating patriots? Are these patriots following a patriot?
Today’s related study is another musician
This is the chart of Jimi Hendrix (Johnny Allen Hedrix November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970). He was one of the most influential guitarists that ever lived. His style and music is still emulated. He had numerous hits and was inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of fame. He died in St Mary Abbots Hospital in London of drug induced asphyxia (drowning).
This is the chart of Dustin Higgs (March 10, 1972 – January 16, 2021). Higgs was the last person executed by the Trump administration. Attorney General Barr‘s << DOJ appealed a stay of his execution to the Supreme Court and the way was cleared to carry out the sentence. The rush to execute prisoners before Biden takes office is unusual. It would not have been possible without the Neo Con appointments to the Supreme Court. Justice Sonia Sotomayor;s scathing dissenting opinion can be read in Courtroom Strategy.com. See this related post.
Higgs was sentenced to death for his involvement in the murder of three young women in 1996. The actual shooter, Willis Haynes negotiated for life in prison by testifying against Higgs. The other man in the vehicle, Victor Gloria, negotiated a 7 year sentence (down from 15) as an accessory by testifying against Higgs. They said in court that he had ordered the killings. Both later recanted their statements.
