A Turning In The American Political Road Is Almost At Hand
@Panzerhund @TimeBandit @Highlander @Auslander-Raus!

Authored by Conrad Black, op-ed via The Epoch Times,
The only way to make any sense of the fierce crosscurrents sweeping over American political life now is to watch two trends that are only slightly connected.

First is the continuing great national sense of relief that the chaos and pandemonium of the Trump era is over.

There are not nightly cascades of provocative and frequently outrageous tweets and the days are not filled with confrontations in which the president’s enemies assault him like picadors, and he rises to every challenge like a compulsive single combat warrior.

To Trump’s scores of millions of admirers, he was merely returning fire from those who attacked him unfairly. To Trump’s enemies, his opponents were only doing their duty to assist in retarding the progress and hastening the departure of the Great Ogre.

To the independent voters, a beleaguered minority in the Trump era, it was Trump’s America, regardless of blame, and to the majority of Americans, the indignity inflicted upon the presidency and the strain of the constant din of needless and often witless combat became insufferable and had to end, whatever the policy consequences.



At its most acidulous, this was the Trump-hate vote, more benignly, it was the Trump-abatement vote. But the majority of people, including probably a majority of Trump voters, didn’t like it and simply could not stand the tumult of the Trump presidency.

Even thoughtful Americans who do not have confidence in Joe Biden and don’t approve of most of what he is doing, are still deeply grateful to be relieved of the nerve-racking cacophony of the Trump presidency.

This is what is chiefly supporting the Biden honeymoon 100 days into his presidency. Most of the polls remain politicized, inaccurate, and largely unprofessional, as they were in the late presidential election of ineradicable and horrifying memory (and result).

But the average of them seems to give this president approximately a 53 percent approval rating to about 42 percent negative. This is a solid and respectable result and a better showing than President Trump had any point in his term.

Though given that he was the subject of a completely unprecedented consistency and intensity of media and celebrity assault, his performance in the almost uniformly nasty and stacked polls entitles him to a special achievement award for carrying nearly 48 percent of the vote and probably forcing the Democrats to steal the Electoral College with harvested ballots in Georgia, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, and for producing so taut a political crisis that the Supreme Court ducked it (in the Texas challenge supported by 18 other states), assumedly under the mistaken assumption that that would spare them the threatened effort to pack the high court.

This total, the anti-Trump share of the honeymoon approval rate, as in all presidential honeymoons, is slowly declining. But it is also more vulnerable than other presidential honeymoon poll results, because it is not really based on any enthusiasm for Biden, but rather on the passage of something that has gone and is not threatening to return imminently.

The last time we saw anything of this kind was in the first year of President Nixon as the antiwar and race riots of the late Lyndon Johnson era faded, and in the Ford and early Carter years, when there was no longer any reason to think of Watergate.

The second indicator of political opinion is the independent policy areas where the new administration’s performance is measured. Here, the sands are running out in the hour-clock for the Biden administration’s attempt to smoke far-left legislation through on the threadbare flying carpet of anti-Trumpism.

The vulnerability of President Biden’s position is underscored by the fact that apart from his handling of the coronavirus and related problems, the majority disapprove of his performance in all other areas, most markedly the southern border and immigration, but also including the economy, foreign policy, and law and order and public security.



Approximately 90 percent of Americans believe that there should be a border and a process to entering the country; over 80 percent unconditionally oppose violent demonstrations and riots, the overwhelming majority support adequate police protection, if with more sophisticated rules in armed confrontations, and there is little enthusiasm for increased taxes or profligate spending.

The principal anti-Trump television networks seem to have lost about 50 percent of their viewers and the public clearly is not much interested in an indefinite continuation of mudslinging and defamation against the former president, either as a substitute for the new administration presenting and executing its policies, or for the national political media restoring a substantial element of professional reporting where for the previous four years it had self-righteously substituted Trump-hate.


It is of the nature of polling that unpleasant memories of former presidents recede and the prestigious fact of them having been presidents and in many cases the highlights of their presidencies remain comparatively well fixed in the public mind.

Herbert Hoover and Richard Nixon were generally reviled when they left office, but after some years they came again to be recognized as outstanding figures of American public life. President Trump was not generally a quick learner in the art of public relations while he was president, but it must be said that he has played his hand skillfully these last three months.

The initial post-inaugural efforts to torment him endlessly, portray him as an advocate of insurrection and to suborn and extort evidence against him in all manner of ubiquitously alleged imminent proceedings while pretending there was some comparison to be made between Jan. 6 and 9/11, has been a complete failure.

All the headlines and television news introductions that the Trump mob had killed capitol police officer Brian Sicknick have been exposed as pure fabrication, a campaign of outright lies. All the allegations against the Trump campaign organization of incitement of the vandalism at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 have proved to be unfounded.

And throughout these three months the former president has issued press releases without hyperbole and has given relatively few interviews and only one major speech and on every occasion he has been judicious.

Joe Biden does well with the public as an apparently amiable personality, and he probably deserves credit for at least bringing to serious consideration a far more radically left agenda than the public would approve of, in a way that has not squandered the general perception of him as a likable person.

But we are almost at the point where this administration’s attempt to revolutionize American elections by practically abolishing any verification process for ballots and turning election day into a weeks-long orgy of ballot-harvesting, while packing the Senate and the Supreme Court and gagging congressional minorities, will collide with public opposition to all of these measures.
In those circumstances, the Supreme Court, its attempt at appeasement of the Democrats by abdicating as head of a co-equal third branch of government having failed, might also reassert the legitimacy of the Constitution.

A turning in the road is almost at hand.

reassert the legitimacy of the Constitution.
It's there, and it's legitimate.

The problem is they believe they have enough power and mind control to ignore it. Having a compliant SC allows them to fabricate it to any shape they want, then the media explains how great the change is for everyone, until some poor fellow says "the Constitution has no clothes".

His friends rat him out, then he's off to Guantanamo for the next 20 years.

Biden is safe in the White House as long as no one has to take any positive action to keep him there. We won't protest because anyone who does gets thrown in jail and beaten until his retinas detach.

OTOH if Biden starts a war with China or Russia and calls on millions of young men to fight for him, the recruitment centers will be empty as our highly diverse active military quickly collapses against a competent foe. Then Biden, Harris, and Pelosi all fall down stairs and break their necks, and some general you never heard of is elected Speaker of the House, becomes President, and sues for peace. After which a broken, humiliated, bankrupt nation convulses in riots, but this time regular white folks join the fun and massacre millions of Democrats.

And El Al quickly removes all seats from its 747s for a standing-room-only airlift as the countries-Jews-have-been-expelled-from counter clicks up to 110.

Falun chinks too? Sure, why not.
<shrug>

Falun Gong publishes the widely-distributed and multilingual newspaper Epoch Times.[42][43] Besides its usual anti-PRC diatribes that ask readers to "resign" from the Chinese Communist Party regardless of actual membership, the paper often publishes woo and conspiracies such as chemtrails,[44] UFOs,[45] and an entire section titled "Beyond Science".[46] The Beyond Science section includes such things as "12 Million-Year-Old Vehicle Tracks",[47] ancient Sumerian spaceships,[48] and hype over meditation[49] and near-death experiences.[50]

Former employees noted the secrecy of the publication's ownership and funding, and tendency to promote red-baiting as well as anti-abortion and homophobic views.[17] Other former writers noted its almost slave labor-like work environment, where they need to meet a quota of writing five articles per day and reaching 100,000 views, and are paid in "virtue", a "white substance in another dimension that you gain when you do good things". [33] Falun Gong-associated editors then remove mentions of issues which conflict with "traditional values" as well as those unfavorable to Trump.[17] This is not surprising since it was promoted by Chris Kitze of fake new website Before It's News.[51]

Hey Conrad Black, how about HIJACKING AN ELECTION ?
In those circumstances, the Supreme Court, its attempt at appeasement of the Democrats by abdicating as head of a co-equal third branch of government having failed, might also reassert the legitimacy of the Constitution.
They already abdicated by pulling out their blindfolds & sticking their fingers in their ears aka 'no standing' and sent valid elections flying into the wastepaper basket.
What vestige of legitimacy is the inJudicial branch of the mega-turd called America?

That made me smile this morning.

I'm afraid, though, that your hypothetical general got canned by Obama 10 years ago and now has FBI watching him 24/7 and waiting to swoop. The collapse of our military won't be reported by any news media, and anyone who suggests that it's happening will be lucky if they ONLY get beaten until their retinas detach, and the normies and Boomers will figuratively hold you down while they do it.

Sorry if I'm blackpilled, I need coffee.

With America defeated, its money worthless, and its cities in flames, the FBI will at best be one faction among many struggling to impose order on the chaos. Every gang will know that ambushing an FBI van is a great way to score weapons, ammo, and tactical gear.

All crowns originate in the gutter. To win and become king, you need to show up at just the right time with a large, well-ordered militia of brave white men, men possessing qualities that liberal democracy has spent a century breeding out of us. To extend your kingly rule beyond what you can visit on a day trip, you'll also need a religion.

This could take a while. After the Roman legions abandoned Brittania in 410 AD, five hundred years passed before any one man could credibly call himself King of England.
