On Thursday, Trumpâs campaign sent out a fundraising message based on standing up to protesters. âThe Left-Wing MOB is trying to DESTROY communities around the Nation, and Sleepy Joeâs campaign is only fuelling the fire,â it read. âTHESE RIOTS MUST END.â
Donald Trump's America: 75-year-old man injured after being shoved by police during protest in Buffalo, NY

"The Democratic Party is the dominant party in Buffalo politics; no Republican or other party member has won a seat on the council in several decades, and all nine seats are currently held by Democrats."
President Donald Trump is trapped inside the White House, as a tall and imposing wall is erected around him, and prison guards stand watch.
The fencing is intended to keep other people out, of course, and to provide security for the White House. But walls donât just keep people outâthey keep people in too, a reality dramatized by the fact that some of those standing watch are officers of the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
And as Trump tries to project strength, he instead appears weaker than ever.
"Donald Trump just crossed a very serious line that demands swift and forceful condemnation by every Member of Congress," said the group's interim executive director, Air Force veteran Jennifer Dane. "Promoting a letter that labels American citizens peacefully exercising their First Amendment rights as 'terrorists' is an egregious breach of his oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Now more than ever, it is absolutely crucial that Trump be held accountable for his reckless actions."

I didn't forget you. Took awhile to formulate a response.
A) Your recollection is correct. The statement "unearthed" was made 4 years ago almost to the day. I tried to get a link to the chain, but it will not work as it usually does. I reread the whole thing for a refresher. It was also made before any conventions and any candidates had locked up a nomination. Of course my thinking and certainly understandings of things have changed since then. As have others as well. Reading the chain showed how much that is so. There was much civility and actual thoughts being exchanged and the change in views and the ways they were expressed are light years away from that now.
B) As it turns out getting the DS exposed and punished is the biggest and most important thing left that can be achieved by Trump at this point in time. If Biden gets elected, we get a brand new AG and all the investigations under way at the DOJ will come to a screeching halt and everyone will walk away unscathed and probably even those fired rehired with back pay after being given their old jobs back. But then again, if you do not believe that a DS exists in the first place, what is the point and why does it even matter. You will just call it a phony distraction which is what you obviously believe based upon everything you have said here over the past 4 years.
C) That requires eternal vigilance as the framers / founders warned. If Clinton had won, none of this would have been exposed. Trump would just be another failed wanna be left on the heap. They would have succeeded and locked in their absolute power from that point on. It would be over and done with and impossible to recover from the systemic damage caused by "getting away with it" once again.
Bottom line, either you believe that there has been an ongoing coup attempt on Trump or you don't. A coup does require a conspiracy of many to attempt let alone succeed. That seems to be the dividing line. If you believe that there has been a coup against Trump, the he gets the benefit of the doubt. Conversely, if you don't and still believe in things like Russian collusion by Trump (not saying you do, but I don't know unless you tell me), then no holds are barred and whatever means available to remove him are fair game considering the nature of his unproven crime against the country.
I appreciate the response.
Here is the overriding problem I have with your position: You seem to have boiled this down to evidence of âa coup against Trumpâ proves the existence of this Deep State that you also have said has been with us and operating sub rosa and nefariously for many years before Trump began his presidential campaign in 2015.
As I said in my preceding post, what was this Deep State doing during all those years? Who were some of the members before this current cast of characters? What were the goals of this shadowy group? How did it recruit or indoctrinate new members? I recall you once pointing to the military industrial complex cited by Eisenhower as being evidence of the existence of the Deep State. How was the proverbial baton passed to succeeding generations of this Deep State?
Will the answers to these kind of questions always remain unsolved mysteries?
Right now, all the allegations against the Deep State are that it has conspired to stage a coup against Trump. The shared commonality of all the persons alleged to be members is that Trump has viewed them as enemies â in most cases, largely because they have not shown themselves to be sufficiently loyal to Trump. Some of those so branded have had long and distinguished careers in service to our country and yet they somehow were exposed as being near traitors when Trump became President. Were they akin to terrorists in sleeper cells? Or did they succumb to the dark side late in their careers?
Sorry, it just does not make any sense to me, for the reasons stated. I will save my views on the âproofâ of âa coupâ for later.
