Sidney Powell, Kenneth Chesebro and Jenna Ellis made a key decision a few weeks back and that was that it was easier to stay out of prison and go forward with their lives than to continue to cover for Donald Trump. Can’t say as how we blame them for coming to that conclusion. Today Sidney Powell was filmed during a proffer session from Fulton County, revealing previously unknown details about the aftermath of the 2020 election.
There are two clips here of Powell, interspersed with Ari Melber discussing fascism with a professor of that subject. Powell is particularly amusing when she describes Rudy Giuliani going off on her.
I can only imagine the look on Trump’s face when he realized that he had lost the election and lying about it and ultimately staying in power was not going to be that easy. And of course you can infer that Giuliani had told him something different, about what a breeze it would be, just leave it all to him. Probably even Trump has enough awareness to know that listening to Giuliani was a terrible idea.
Reporter Jonathan Karl has a book dropping at midnight. In it he elaborates on Trump’s fascist doctrine. This is what Trump 2.0 looks like folks, the Third Reich fast forwarded to the 21st Century. The GOP appears ready to self immolate for their hero. If that’s how they want to conduct themselves and their party, then if their losing streak continues, and bigly, they’ll have nobody to blame but themselves.
Hitler telegraphed his intentions with the book he wrote in prison, Mein Kampf. Trump is likewise telegraphing his intentions at each and every rally. And MAGA thinks it’s great, just great. It makes me wonder, do none of these people have parents, grandparents, or teachers, anybody from the WWII era, and did they ever listen to those folks?
Because I personally knew some impressive veterans from that era. I knew two men, both Republicans, one of whom worked on the Manhattan Project (he was Army) and another one who piloted a Douglas Diver in the Pacific Theater (he was Marines.) I can guarantee you that both of these men, if they were alive and listening to this idiocy, would not endorse it. They would be Never Trumpers.
The men and women that they fought alongside in WWII did not die so some spray painted, floofy haired trust fund baby could mimic and ape Adolph Hitler to the unwashed masses, some 80 years later.
Fascism did not come to America wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross. It came straight out of the TV tube, glitzed up by Madison Avenue and Hollywood, wearing a corset and diapers.
