First comes a rolling civil war
Biden is on a double precipice of the worst-ever economic depression coupled with imminent explosions of social rage
The massive psyops is ongoing. Everyone familiar with the Transition Integrity Project (TIP) knew how this would play out. I preferred – diplomatically – to frame it as a think tank gaming exercise in my Banana Follies column, which is getting maximum traction in the US. This is a live exercise. Yet no one knows exactly how it will end.
Everyone in US intel is aware of the well-documented instances of election fraud. The key actor is the Deep State, which decides what happens next. They have weighed the pros and cons of having a senile, stage 2 dementia, neocon warmonger extorsionist (along with son) as “leader of the free world”. The optics may be somewhat terrible – but still not enough to nullify a rigged election.
The GOP is in a very comfortable position. They held the Senate and may pick up as may as 12 SEATS in the House. They also know that any attempt by Biden-Harris to legislate via Executive Orders will come to nothing.
The Fox News/ NY Post angle is key. Why are they suddenly supporting Cadaver? Because Murdoch made it very clear he has all sorts of kompromat on the Biden family. So they will do whatever HE wants. Murdoch does not need Trump anymore.
Nor, in theory, does the GOP. Serious backroom shenanigans are going on between GOP honchos and the Biden-Harris gang. Trade-offs. Bypassing Trump –which most of the GOP hates with a vengeance. The most important man in Washington will be in fact GOP Senator Mitch McConnell.
Still, a vote recount would be absolutely necessary in all 6 contested states – WI, MI, PA, GA, NV and AZ. Through hand counting. One by one. The DoJ would need to act on it, immediately. Not gonna happen. Recounts cost a ton of money. There’s no evidence Team Trump – on top of it short of funds and manpower – will be able to convince Daddy Bush asset Barr to go for it.
Mainstream media and Big Tech have declared a winner – while demonizing Trump for spreading “a torrent of misinformation” and “trying to undermine the legitimacy of the US election”. Only the terminally brain-dead buy the script.
What REALLY matters is the letter of the law. STATE LEGISLATURES decide whose electors go to the Electoral College to appoint the President. Here it is – Article II, Section 1, Clause 2: Each state shall appoint electors “in such Manner as the Legislature Thereof May Direct.”
So this has nothing to do with governors. It’s up to GOP state legislatures to act accordingly. The drama may roll out for weeks. And it may be the case Congress will have to certify and make the final determination in January.
Meanwhile, talk of a New Resistance is spreading like wildfire. Trumpism, with 71 million + votes, is established as a mass movement. No one in the GOP commands this kind of popular appeal. By sidelining Trumpism, the GOP may be committing seppuku.
My dear friend Alastair Crooke, always indispensable, hits the nail on the head in a powerful essay.
Depending on what happens next, The Deplorables will become The Ungovernables.
Alastair refers to a crucial parallel evoked by historian Mike Vlahos.
Vlahos notes how the current American saga does mirror Ancient Rome in the last century of the Republic, pitting the Roman elite against the Populares – which today is Red (Trumpist) America:
“This was a new world, in which the great landowners, with their latifundia [the slave-land source of wealth], who had been the ‘Big Men’ leading the various factions in the civil wars, became the senatorial archons that dominated Roman life for the next five centuries — while the People, the Populares, were ground into a passive — not helpless — but generally dependent and non-participating element of Roman governance: This sapped away at the creative life of Rome, and eventually led to its coming apart.”
So what will imperial Big Capital do? The West as a whole is on the edge of a double precipice: the worst economic depression ever, coupled with imminent, myriad, uncontrollable explosions of social rage.
So the Deep State is reasoning that with Cadaver – or, much sooner than later, Commander Kamala – the path gets smoother towards the Davos Great Reset, while keeping Plan B in ready, set, go mode: a global rampage to satisfy the military-industrial complex, which selected Cadaver in the first place because he’s no more than a cardboard figure.
