We must get past the immediate emergency before we can have a “reckoning”. Trump may have installed people in key security positions who were supposed to preempt the attack on January 6 and who purposely didn’t – which makes Inauguration Day dangerous.

Everything that happened leading up to January 6 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.

Read that article if you don’t believe it – and be wary of what still might happen.

More long-term, one of our most important “reckonings” will involves how we constrict presidential power in the future. It is the concentration of such power that enables a fascist strongman to exist in the first place. We must assure that there be no reincarnation of Trump by demanding that Congress implement the legislation to curb presidential power petitioned for in The Pledge to Safeguard the Constitution [https://alcris2.medium.com/following-is-a-summary-of-6be4d81a3ddc?sk=bf21c2a6b26ea78cf6761ede5d12a96c].
