[An update of this article regarding the potential censure of Donald Trump follows this brief summary of its previous installments:]

In June of 2020 the Transition Integrity Project ran a series of political scenario exercises (or what the military would call “war games”) on various outcomes for the 2020 presidential election. “We anticipate lawsuits, divergent media narratives, attempts to stop the counting of ballots, and protests drawing people from both sides,” the TIP report summarized. “The potential for violent conflict is high.”

On top of this, Nils Gilman, one of the TIP’s co-founders said in an interview with Vox afterwards…

Now that Donald Trump has returned to public view in Sunday’s CPAC convention and declared himself as the “future” of the Republican Party, we need to ask ourselves, “What are we going to do if he really does attempt a comeback?”

First of all, we must insist that Donald Trump’s recent past be forthrightly addressed before he begins to anoint himself as our “future”.

The problem will be relatively minor if Trump merely retains control of the Republican party and drives it into the ground. …

During a week when white supremacists and others may launch another attack on our nation’s Capitol, and as Martin Luther King Day and the presidential inauguration dovetail in what has the potential to ignite into a state of emergency or even into an invocation of martial law by President Trump, I want you to think about “What would Martin Luther King do at this moment?” Before I suggest an answer…

The Pledge to Safeguard the Constitution

We as citizens and/or as candidates for political office commit to support and call on Congress to enact legislation around the framework of the following four affiliated proposals:

1 — We pledge to support a congressional resolution and legislation (and ultimately, if required, a Constitutional Amendment) reaffirming the legal obligation of all members of BOTH the executive and legislative branches of the federal government (including the President of the United States) to abide by whatever rulings the courts adjudicate (even under what might be defined as a “national emergency”); and assert that the…

These two quotes from President Trump when put together should send shivers down the spines of all Americans. They should cause us to armor our backbones with steel indignation, but more importantly inspire us to have the resolve to do what’s necessary to prevent what they imply from occurring.

“They ask me, ‘If you lose, will there be a friendly transition?’ Well, when I won, did they give me a friendly transition?”
