Friends, it has been a strange day. I have the symptoms of COVID-19 and I called a young friend who is a college student in Waco, Texas and who had the coronavirus in the summer to ask her if my symptoms matched. She said that unfortunately they did (dry cough, congestion, trouble breathing, severe headache) but she also counseled me to wait a few days because a coronavirus test, if taken at too early a stage, will come back with a false negative. So I guess I’ll attempt to keep it together and monitor this situation, at least for a little while.

Now the call did have the benefit of much needed comic relief. I’ll call my friend Nicki so as not to dox her in the unlikely event anybody in her father’s information bubble would see this post. I’m pretty sure her anonymity is safe.

Nicki’s father informed her that Donald Trump is going to stay in office using the military. I asked where he gets his information. She said, “from his militia buddies (some of whom went to Washington to riot in the Capitol) and from Newsmax, Facebook and Parler. Not Fox News anymore, it’s too liberal.” The plan is that Trump will remain in the White House and troops from the Pentagon will be dispatched and Joe Biden will be physically prevented from entering the People’s House and assuming his duties.

Now that is Plan A. In the event that that plan is thwarted by “backstabbers” like Mike Pence, the three Supreme Court justices Trump appointed and others, then there is Plan B — and that involves Trump going to Texas.  Lin Wood was tweeting about that before his account went dark. He said, “the military has his back” and according to Nicki’s father, Trump is indeed coming to Texas, if he can’t hold the White House physically, and he will rule from there as the True President. People will “do what he says” and “not what Joe Biden says.” Trump will effectively “start the Confederacy” in Texas.

It actually makes a lot of sense where the MAGAts are coming from. The GOP hoped that Trump would be the second coming of Ronald Reagan. The MAGAts have always seen him as the second coming of Jefferson Davis. And the goal was never to go back to the 1950’s at all, no sir, the true golden age to return to was the 1850’s.

So I inquired, “What about all the laws on the books? Will they still apply in the Confederacy? For instance, if Texas wants to get oranges from Florida, will all the laws of interstate commerce still be in effect, or will Trump seal off Texas when he lays claim to it as the seat of the Confederacy and they sign a treaty? Or would Trump invite Florida to join the Confederacy?”  I also asked if there would be another White House — and I mean “White” — in Texas.

Nicki said, “they haven’t gotten that far. They don’t think about practicalities.”

This is America today. Right-wing media, radio in particular, has literally brainwashed a good portion of the populace, particularly in rural areas.

I asked Nicki to write a first person piece of her own here on the site and she said she would do so in a couple of days when she returns to school. We’ve got our own correspondent from Wingnuttia, friends.

We used to have two Americas, now we have three. We have blue America, and red America has forked into red and orange factions. The traditional GOPers are making their stance, trying to hang onto some semblance of carrying on the party, and the Trumpers are making theirs, trying to stay in power. They don’t understand it’s all hot air, psychosis and bluster and that there has never been a chance, since November 7, that Trump was going to stay in the White House. Where the GOP made it’s fatal error, is they should have all insisted on ratifying Biden’s win from the get go. This stringing along of Trump’s followers has only sown the seeds of destruction that we saw manifest last Wednesday.

The handwriting about what a powder keg this has become has been on the wall since the Biden-Harris bus was forced off the road  Former Texas state senator Wendy Davis said that law enforcement didn’t take things seriously enough then and that’s why they got what they got in Washington on Wednesday.

“This is a symptom of a broader problem that is not going away. This truly is the birth of a domestic terrorist unit. And I think that the FBI and local law enforcement need to see it this way,” said Davis, who spoke publicly about the October incident for the first time on Monday to The Texas Tribune. “It’s no surprise that we see things like Wednesday of last week in our nation’s Capitol, when people who are behaving aggressively like that are rewarded and praised by their quote-unquote leader for that kind of behavior.”

I think Davis is right. Things are not going away in nine days. There is going to be a lot of violence in this country. What remains to be seen is how Trump is going to play it, if he’s going to keep doubling down or if he’s going to put his attentions on his own legal woes and leave the troops. This is spiraling out of Trump’s control now. He created a monster and he doesn’t know what to do with it.

And one thing is certain: January 20 will be a tipping point because it’s going to become evident to the MAGAverse that they’ve been lied to — or right wing radio and Trump will actually try to foment a revolution in this country and that seems to be cost ineffective. What good is it going to do to get a lot of MAGAts shot and imprisoned?

Here’s one fellow who’s learning about reality the hard way. He was just kicked off a plane because he’s on the airlines’ s*hit list.

“They’re trying to ruin my life.” Hey pal, did it ever occur to you that you’re ruining other peoples’ lives, not to mention ruining government property, not to mention killing and injuring people, and that ruins families and communities’ lives? What you do is like a stone thrown into the lake, the waves ripple out, have you thought about that? And now you’re crying at the airport about the milk — not to mention blood — that you spilt yourself?

I guess this is what it’s going to take to wake these people up that actions have consequences and this is not reality TV. What will be wonderful is when their Dreamsickle Deity starts facing some consequences of his own. That will illustrate conclusively that this isn’t all fun and games, this is life. I think that will happen but I despair of what violence could lie ahead for the country before then if this second, delusional narrative of reality that has taken over these peoples’ minds is allowed to continue unabated. That is where the focus will be, in the weeks and months ahead, unless I miss my guess. The problem needs to be addressed at the root source.

Oh no! This is horrible! Please keep me informed of your progress if you are able. A text is fine, then you wouldn’t have to talk. My very best to you.

Ursula – so sorry that you might have been infected with this dreadful disease. Certainly hope that if it’s true, you have a mild case and recover quickly. Keep your fan club updated, please.

Republican politicians have been feeding their uninformed supporters with lies and propaganda for decades. Now it’s blowing up in their faces and they don’t know what to do.

I think the temporary put in charge of the military are going to have their own troubles with the legal system. The army won’t help. Some of Tx is going to be mighty disappointed when when he gets back on his plane-for-a-day and goes back to DC.

These domestic terrorists need to be placed on the No Fly List like any other suspected terrorist…..there is no burden of proof needed, just suspicion (see Cat Stevens)…..that would put a stop to the terrorist groups from congregating in a particular city on short notice.

There’s a move to do just that – if they’re identified as having been at the Capitol, verify with records (they never think about their phones as locators!) and then ban from planes.

I don’t remember any Antifa or BLM being blacklisted like this during the summer riots. I don’t remember them being rebuked, humiliated, or condemned. They burned up cars, police buildings, 30+ people were killed. Stores were looted, Statues broken, and buildings graffitied. If I remember correctly they were bailed out of jail, and everyone got to get on a plane, keep their jobs, enjoy posting pictures of their involvement on Facebook and Twitter. Do you see the hypocrisy here? Ask yourself why truth are now lies, and lies are now the truth? You might find in the not so far… Read more »

Strange…..I don’t recall BLM and Antifa, (which doesn’t exist BTW…….you’re welcome), breaking into the United States Capitol and attempting to kill members of Congress which is the issue rapt hand…..

See the difference Mary???

What you don’t remember and what actually happened are two different things. The very few rioters out of the millions and mullions of protesters were roundly rebuked by one and all including Democrats and specifically Joe Biden. Of the many who were arrested, most of their cases were dismissed by the judge. None of them had the goal of executing a coup over fictitious “concerns.”

First, I hear it from my longtime client (who’s been down with a confirmed case for the last several days about 20 minutes ago) and now you too, Ursula? Dammit…! Look, do whatever you need to get better first. I, for one, will still be here when you do and I’m sure the others can say the same.

I am distressed to hear you’ve got COVID; it’s really out of control everywhere. And most people don’t get the kind of concierge medical treatment that the undeserving orange shithead got.

I think that one is a maskless wonder – there are a lot of videos of them in airports and on planes, that are being passed off as from this last week.

Sorry to hear about the health issues! Wishing you the best and a speedy recovery. As a caregiver for a transplant recipient, I’ll get all nurse-y. Take extra care of any individual symptoms. If you’re having congestion, consider a regimen of phenylephrine (Sudafed) as a decongestant, but also guaifenesin (mucinex products) as an expectorant. We use this combo in my immunosuppressive friend to help him ride out viral infections without getting secondary issues. Tylenol is good for pain and fever reduction. And stay hydrated! Pedialyte if you start to experience dehydration, and Ensure if your appetite drops off. My friend… Read more »

Me. Cranking the vitamins. D E. Finally got some fish oil. And just eating. And yard work in shorts. Barefeet in rain and cold. But now layer more. Lil sis and nieces think I might be a tad strange in the old noggin. But mask and sanitizer. The other folks… no mask and the nose peckers folks… well.

Take care. Ensure is good. Vanilla. Was my liquid diet in the mornings when I had to unload a trailer by myself. And then got an appetite.

Ursula, so , so sorry to hear you are sick with this virus(?). Get the test done, get treatment early, be advised what you need to stock up on. Look after yourself, I know you do.
You are in my thoughts, all the very best to you. Much Love.

I hope that you don’t actually have COVID-19 or if you do that you will be okay. I love you and always enjoy reading your articles. You are one of the best at what you do.

I have been predicting a new civil war since Reagan took office back in 1981. Having lived in California during his first years as governor, I got the picture and it was so right on when he became president. Even through the Clinton and Obama years, all the clues were there. As long as we allow the right to control and interpret our message, it will only spell disaster for the country. The cold war and racism were all the had to divide thinking of folks in the USA, and these tools have been quite successfully used to demonize democracy… Read more »

Please secede Texas and don’t let the door hit you on the way out. Also, don’t forget to take fools like “Turd” Cruz and Louie Gomert (can’t make up a name funnier than that).
I’ve often said I agree we need a wall on our southern border, I just disagree on the latitude on which to build it.

Nope. Turn Texas purple, then blue. Don’t cut off our millions of brothers and sisters working their asses off to bring this about.

Hi Ursula. Im sure you dont know me, but I’m a fan of your writing. I lurked on Dkos and started reading your work in 2016 I think. When you were pointlessly booted from kos I followed you over here. So glad I found this place. It’s so much more relaxed here. I am truly sorry to hear that you’re sick. It must be very frightening, to say the least. Please do all you can to get healthy again & come back to us soon. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

The original video states that he was removed because he wouldn’t put his mask all the way on. Just because he wouldn’t wear a mask doesn’t make him one of the rioters.

Sending healing thoughts to you Ursula. I hope you’re going to be ok. Rest, drink lots of water and take zinc and vitamin D. Those help the immune system.😘

“Waco” really needs to insert a “k” itoits name. It’s only fair to provide a warning rattle when you are that poisonous.
