As has already been explained, we have a very long way to go. Scroll down to see one scenario I wrote about last month.
I will explain what the hell is going on in Arizona in another post.
Dems already war-gamed the non-election, four months ago… did you see the results?
So there were a bunch of Dems and RINO-never-trumpers who got together back in June to war-game what is going to happen on non-election night, and in the weeks and months that follow.
One of the scenarios, understandably, is Trump winning the EC but losing the popular vote. John Podesta, playing the part of Biden in the war-game, refuses to concede. The drama plays out into January. I’ll block quote below, and then link to the source where you can find other links.
This is all right out in the open, folks. Don’t you dare claim, three weeks from now, that this caught you by surprise.
“Far more interesting, and totally unnoticed, is the behavior of former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. Podesta also took part in the simulations, and unlike the anti-Trump Republicans, he wasn’t pretending to be someone he hates. Instead, organizers did the sensible thing: they had an anti-Trump Democrat portray an anti-Trump Democrat. Because the simulation designers apparently wanted to torment him as much as possible, Podesta had to endure an exact 2016 repeat: he played Joe Biden in a simulation where Trump loses the popular vote but wins a close but convincing victory in the Electoral College.”
Buried at the bottom of a New York Times article, the paper describes what Podesta did:
‘Mr Podesta, playing Mr Biden, shocked the organizers by saying he felt his party wouldn’t let him concede. Alleging voter suppression, he persuaded the governors of Wisconsin and Michigan to send pro-Biden electors to the Electoral College.
‘In that scenario, California, Oregon, and Washington then threatened to secede from the United States if Mr Trump took office as planned.’
The actual text of the final report is even more jarring. According to a summary of the game, while acting as Biden — rather than accept defeat — Podesta actively instigated secession, and then issued an ultimatum: Trump could only begin his second term if Puerto Rico and DC became states, California was cut into five pieces, and the Electoral College was abolished. When the ultimatum was refused, Podesta got the Democratic House (played by other Democrats) to declare Biden the president, and then watched to see how the military would react. If you think Cockburn exaggerates, here’s what the document says about ‘Game 3: Clear Trump win’ (a scenario in which Trump wins the Electoral College and the popular vote)
‘The Biden campaign encouraged Western states, particularly California but also Oregon and Washington and collectively known as “Cascadia” to secede from the union unless Congressional Republicans agreed to a set of structural reforms to fix our democratic system to ensure majority rule. With advice from President Obama, the Biden Campaign submitted a proposal to 1) give statehood to Washington, DC and Puerto Rico; 2) divide California into five states to more accurately represent the population in the Senate; 3) require Supreme Court Justices retire at 70; and 4) eliminate the Electoral College, to ensure the candidate who wins the popular vote…’
And it goes on,
‘One of the most consequential moves was that Team Biden on January 6 provoked a breakdown in the joint session of Congress by getting the House of Representatives to agree to award the presidency to Biden (based on the alternative pro-Biden submissions sent by pro-Biden governors.) Pence and the GOP refused to accept this, declaring instead that Trump was re-elected under the Constitution because of his Electoral College victory. This partisan division remained unresolved because neither side backed down, and January 20 arrived without a single president-elect entitled to be Commander-in-Chief after noon that day. It was unclear what the military would do in this situation.’

All I can think of right now is how I can make up for all necessary suffering I avoided when I was living a dissolute life.
Also, turning to the Blessed Virgin has never felt more like a balm during the first of what I reckon will be many sleepless nights.
Agree on both points.
For starters, I decided to bow out of my uncle’s funeral because I refuse the Virus burqa.
He was my favorite uncle and I loved him; if we were living in any other period in history, I would be the first to attend, even at great personal expense.
But his children, widow and the rest of the family are all-in on VirusCult; and besides, they’re having him cremated after the viewing.
Undoubtedly I’ll be derided for my decision and even now I’m suffering scruples for having made it; but I’ve prayed rosaries for his soul and am trying to find someone to say a requiem Mass for him. Hopefully I will receive some signal grace that this will all pay off.
Ditto. Thank you for those thoughts. I find myself waking up at night but try to pray a Hail Mary or the Memorare and both help immensely.
Mark, I will look forward to your analysis of AZ. For what it’s worth, I am trapped in the Vampire State (NY). I am far away from the madness of the bigger cities and Big Rotten Apple, at least for now, but there is nonsense everywhere it seems. 🙁 People have lost their collective minds because they have either lost their faith or didn’t have it to begin with. May God have mercy on us all.
Biden just took Michigan. Sad.
Aethelfrith, my sincere condolences on your uncle’s death. It is such a sad and mixed up time, that things have to come down to this where families are divided when they should be together. 🙁 I’m sure your rosaries are an immense help, and I hope you are able to find someone to say a Requiem Mass for his soul.
May eternal light shine upon him, and through the mercy of God, may his soul rest in peace.
“There is a risk of a lacerating division, those who live across the mountains have already threatened to leave. In order to save peace and the unity of our nation, the president could just step aside from the exercise the active ministry of being the president, while keeping the office and camp in a tent in the gardens of the white house. He could still wear red ties and occasionally sign executive orders, while the Oval Office will be occupied by an active president. After all, where is it written that the president of the United States should have immediate and universal jurisdiction over all Americans?”
The good news is that Trump Inc. also had a war room. I feel sorry for those who crossed him this time!
I am beginning to appreciate the Chinese curse “may you live in interesting times.”
