Don’t underestimate this one. There are actually ideas by Sydney Powell that would have the election being contested after Biden’s inauguration and if successful would result in Biden’s impeachment and Trump’s re-installation as President. Check out what she has to say about “mandamus”. Sure, it sounds insane. But then remember January 6 and everything that led up to it. Sorry if I’ve sentenced you to another year of burnt coffee.

Everything that happened leading up to January 6 was predicted in an October article titled The War After the Election [https://medium.com/illumination-curated/the-war-after-the-election-545de96aa4ca?sk=627c55d616d9296af3e398f1686493a4] in which I summarized the findings of the Transition Integrity Project, a group that included former Congressmen, United States Senators, previous cabinet members, White House Chiefs of Staffs, Secretaries of Defense and Homeland Security and state governors whose “war games” predicted almost exactly what is happening. I have also been updating the article to take into account events since January 6 with ideas regarding what we should do to immobilize Trump until Biden assumes power.

Part of this strategy involves politically incapacitating Trump with the twin threats of an impeachment conviction or removal from office via the 25th Amendment; and also employing a strategy of “passive resistance” as a citizenry if things should become dire.

It wouldn’t necessarily succeed, but the President could justify the legality of the initiation of emergency powers more than he can justify the legality of many other things he has done. We as a citizenry must refrain from any action that would give Donald Trump an excuse for attempting to declare any type of a state of emergency or “limited” martial law before he is actually out of office and no longer commands the military, law enforcement and intelligent levers of power of the federal government.
