Meadows burned papers after assembly with Scott Perry, Jan. 6 panel informed
[ Editor’s Note: We are now at the point of having to ponder about changing the names we use for our Congressional reprsentations. Specificially I am refering to some qualitfying terms, warnings, in the vein of public safety, where they use danger.
One of these could be Congressional/Political Grifter, something that does not break a statute requiring charges, but would a public notice warning.
Citizens/voters, who love grifters would not be prevented from supporting them unless some kind of threshold was broken. A good example if is this story, when Trump tried as quick fix rigging of the election by getting Jeffrey Clark in as the top guy to rule that there were significant ‘irregularities’ with the state elections.
That would have waived the green flag that it was OK for them to throw the election results out via a real stealing by having Republican controlled legislatures just appoint who the president would be.
For anyone claiming that this is a crazy theory of mine, I must remind you that the Trumper Repubs have publicly stated that they will win the 2024 presidential election ‘one way or another’. These are not cloak and dagger people, but the right ‘in you face’ kind.
The gall of course was not a drunk bragging, but hanging that out their for the Trump base to grab onto, to keep them in the fundraising loop and active politically.
And part two of the plan seems to include hope for all those facing potential indictment for helping Trump steal the election that they all can get pardons after he is re-elected, despite his having turned America into a Banana Republic.
I have tried to kindle the use of the term ‘Banana Republicans’ as it does so fit this situation so perfectly, but alas it has not caught on. I will keep hoping… Jim W. Dean ]
