The democracy of United States of America barely survived the disgraced ex-President, who made a very serious effort at performing a coup in order to stay in power. Even today, Republicans are afraid to cross him, and he has an army of deluded MAGA supporters who believe themselves to be patriotic. When attacking the nations Capitol, they don't all carry Confederate Flags. Some of the MAGA Patriots instead carried USA flags to then be used as weapons against the Capitol police.


Everyone in America should have known This Man would not to quietly into the night, but few expected outright treason.


We are eventually going to find out just how far President Donald J. Treason would go to destroy our governing structure in order to retain power. Treasonous Trump's authoritarian tendencies went spiraling out of control during the time between his election defeat and the inauguration of Joe Biden. Another 4 years of his tyrannical rule would have ended America as we know it. Instead, our democracy is deeply wounded.


Trump himself had called his supporters to DC, and he certainly did not ever ask for peaceful protests. Instead, on the morning of January 6th, he said this “Now, it is up to Congress to confront this egregious assault on our democracy. And after this, we’re going to walk down, and I’ll be there with you, we’re going to walk down, we’re going to walk down. Anyone you want, but I think right here, we’re going to walk down to the Capitol, and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women, and we’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them.

Because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength and you have to be strong. We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated, lawfully slated. I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard”.

Prior to Trump sending his minions off to war, the Rich and Famous (Trump himself, Donald Jr and Eric Trump, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Ivanka and other big wigs stood under a tent participating in a revival of sorts, the the tune of Gloria, watching the insurrection unfold.


Working backwards, we find that Trump's people met at a Trump hotel on January 5th, the night before the insurrection. Including Daniel Beck, who's pedigree is a being a right wing lunatic. Beck must have been proud to be in the same room with Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Michael Flynn, former National Security Advisor to the president, Peter Navarro, Assistant to the President, Corey Lewandowski, 2016 Trump campaign manager, David Bossie, 2016 Trump deputy campaign manager, Adam Piper, executive director of the Republican Attorneys General Association, Rudy Giuliani, personal attorney to the President, Kimberly Guilfoyle, girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr., Michael Lindell, The Mypillow guy and Tommy Tuberville, recently elected Congressman from Alabama. The President of the United States could not use the Pentagon alone to keep himself in power, although he compromised the military. He also tried but was unable to replace the Attorney General with someone who would pressure Georgia Republicans in order to somehow overturn the vote. Everyone in the room...the highest levels of the Justice Department... threatened to resign on the spot, so President. Treason backed off. We know that he actually did hope that by appointing Amy Comey Barrett, he could use the Supreme Court to overturn the election, because he said so himself. So on January 5th, they sat in a room at a Trump hotel and decided to send right-wing militia people from around the country to attack the United States Capitol.


We know that Trump fired several key people in favor of loyalists. And we know this was partially effective, as it is clear that there were obstacles to getting National Guard troops to the Capitol to defend the United States Congress people and their staffs, 100 Senators, as well as the Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was clearly personally threatened, and unwilling to go with some other Congress people because she thought she would be targeted BY HER FELLOW CONGRESSMEN. Pence came within a minute of being seen by the bloodthirsty crowd, and then what? Three Capitol Policeman were killed, one on the spot, and 140 were injured. ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY Capitol policeman, along with other casualties.


Disgraced, convicted ex military Michael Flynn was in that room. Probably Donald Duck was on a phone, listening to his two sons, Rudy Guliani, Michael Flynn, and this guy Daniel Beck. If that is not treason, then the word has no meaning. Who else was at that meeting?


The FBI has video of the person who dropped off the pipe bomb at the RNC office. What might we find out about who this person was associated with, and who paid for it. We will learn more about this as the FBI has no reason to cover for this person, who will be located.


Speaking of pay, huge amounts of money were invested in this effort. According to the New York Times, “a new class of Trump-era benefactors rose to finance data analysts and sleuths to come up with fodder for the stolen-election narrative. Their ranks included the founder of MyPillow, Mike Lindell, and the former chief executive Patrick Byrne, who warned of “fake ballots” and voting-machine manipulation from China on One America News Network and Newsmax, which were finding ratings in their willingness to go further than Fox in embracing the fiction that Mr. Trump had won”.


Seventy four million people voted for President Narcissist to Biden's eighty two million. Republican office holders cower before this treasonous coward.


I would ask them to simply consider Donald J Trump's behavior from November 3, 2020 until January 20, 2021. This delusional man decided that he won an election that he lost by a landslide. He hired lawyers to challenge the results....everywhere. Multiple states, multiple courts, attempts to get the Supreme Court to hear them cry and whine about about the delusion of a stolen election, while providing no evidence.


So while unleashing Rudy Guliani and other corrupt lawyers on the rest of us, he also canned Defense Secretary Mark Esper, cybersecurity chief Chris Krebs, Bryan Ware, assistant director for cybersecurity at CISA and Valerie Boyd, assistant secretary for international affairs at DHS, Richard Pilger, the Department of Justice's election-crimes division chief and many more X, Y<Z. We suspected at the time that he was up to something with these leadership changes.


Now we know that Treason-in-Chief accomplished his mission in making those changes, because somehow the military failed to show up for THREE HOURS. Three hours where Senators, Congressmen and women, families and staff were wondering if they would live through the day. Mike Pence came within 60 seconds of being sighted by the lynch mob. The word “lynch” is no exaggeration, since they actually built a gallows on the grounds of the United States Capitol.

During that period of time between election and inauguration, Trump called Brad Raffensperger, the Secretary of State of Georgia, and ask him to come up with 17,000 votes, long after the election. How did Trump express this? "So look. All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state." How he was supposed to do this might be clear in the mind of Donald Trump, but it wasn't clear for Mr Raffensperger, the governor of Georgia, or any sane person. We don't know the details, but of course Trump made similar calls to Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. We need to know about those calls.


Where was Erik Prince in this? Erik Prince, the boss of a paramilitary force formerly Blackwater (rebranded as XE Services). His sister is Betsy Devos, the equally disgraced Secretary of Education. Devos resigned the day after the coup attempt failed, along with other cabinet members. Trump most certainly would have discussed this with Erik Prince. Did Prince turn him down, or was Prince involved in this? In his defense, I tend to think he was not involved, as they got close enough to do kill a target, and the fact that they didn't probably means his high level people were not involved.


We are about to see a twice impeached delusional narcissist avoid conviction for treason because of the MAGA following he has. These Republicans do not see that Trump is a snake in the grass. It is just a matter of time until he makes it worse for them. We should recognize the few Republicans who did vote for impeachment. Adam Kinzinger, Anthony Gonzalez, Fred Upton, Lynn Cheney, Ben Sass, Tom Rice, Dan Newhouse, Jaime Herrerea Beutler, Peter Meijer, John Katko, and David Valadao. Even Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell crossed over for about a nano second, before reverting to lap dog status.


America's democracy survived the insurrection of January 6, 2021. Will it survive the next authoritarian President? We are in great danger, because Trump's personality is noxious, and he was not ruthless enough to pull this off. The insurrection of January 6 was lead by the President of the United States, who should now be charged and convicted of Treason.
