The Tribune of the people

The Tribune of the people
"Are you ready for my EPIC Rally in GEORGIA?" Trump wrote this week in a fundraising email to supporters.

In ancient Rome a Tribune was an invividual chosen by the plebeians to protect their interests and protect them from the oppression (real or imagined) of the patricians or nobles.

In America there is one man who deserves that title. He is all the people had and served them well for four years. He is also a lightning rod for the indoctrinated enemies of the people. Some think he plans on running for a second term, while others believe he is wise enough to know that he might just be the only Republican who could be defeated in 2024. In any event, he is about to come out of seclusion to help begin the 2022 midterm campaign for the return of Republican control of congress.

He is on his way to a key state that not only played a crucial role in his defeat last November, but was the scene of a costly giveaway of 2 Senate seats. That's right: Georgia - the state where Republicans didn't really come out for the Senate election. I suppose we can thank Sidney Powell for convincing Georgians to boycott that election. There is also some personal business to be settled. Georgia is the state where the former president has vowed to defeat an incumbent conservative governor and a Republican secretary of state for refusing calls to decertify the results. That's the petty part. What is important is to get those Georgia Republican voters energized for the 2022 midterms.

It should be another of the large rallies we have come to expect whenever he speaks. Herschel Walker will join him and speak ahead of him at the rally, which is being held at the Georgia National Fairgrounds in Perry, in the central part of the state.

We can only hope he doesn't make the same mistake he made the last time he was in Georgia. Does anyone recall that?

He was there to endorse Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. Instead he spoke mostly of a stolen election.

Let's hope we don't hear any more about it.

IMO Trump won't draw crowds like he did in 2016.  People really are tired of hearing about Trump all the time.  The run up to 2024 will change things but, for now, Trump isn't doing himself a favor by seeking public attention.  In fact, Trump trying to be too visible at this point could damage him for 2024.  Democrats are cooking their own goose; let the Democrats stew in their own juices.

The Georgia Senate race was no mistake.  If Republicans had retained control of the Senate then Pelosi would have blamed everything on Republicans, the media would have ginned up Republican opposition as the cause for all Biden failures,  and Congress would have been as deadlocked as it has been with Democrats in charge.  Winning control of the Senate was the worst possible outcome for Democrats because they can't hide behind pointing fingers.  It's a redux of 2009-2010; Democrats didn't have a place hide then and don't now.

Not in recent polls:

Former President Donald Trump would beat both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris if he were to run in 2024, according to a new poll released Thursday.

A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that in a possible 2024 Trump-Biden race 51% of possible voters said they would choose Trump over Biden, who garnered just 41% of support, the  Washington Examiner  reported. Independent voters chose Trump over Biden by 20 points, according to the report.

If the election was against Harris, Trump would win 52% of the vote while Harris would only garner 39% of voter support, according to the report.

One-fifth of Democrats also said they would choose Trump over either the president or vice president.





I know how much you like polls!

"Georgia is the state where the former president has vowed to defeat an incumbent conservative governor and a Republican secretary of state for refusing calls to decertify the results."

Where Trump tried to get the Governor and Secretary of State to become criminals and break the law to benefit Trump's numbers.

I have no problem with Trump being compared to a Roman Tribune.  The only example I've ever seen of one was Messala (played by Stephen Boyd) in the movie Ben Hur.  Knowing that Ben Hur (played by Charlton Heston) was innocent, he sent him into slavery and his mother and sister to a leper colony.  He also cheated in the chariot races.  A perfect example to compare Trump to.

In America there is one man who deserves that title.

The only title Trump deserves is Convicted Felon.

He is all the people had and he served them well for four years.

That is utter nonsense.  He was, to put it simply, a disaster and we are well rid of him.

He is also a lightning rod for the indoctrinated enemies of the people.

In my long life, there has NEVER been a greater enemy of the American people and the American way of life than Donald Trump.  That is clear to everyone except those who have been indoctrinated by his lies and extremist propagandistic disinformation.

What a bunch of disingenuous nonsense this article is. 

In any event, he is about to come out of seclusion to help begin the 2022 midterm campaign for the return of Republican control of congress.

Donald Trump has been out of seclusion since at least June 27, when he held a rally in Ohio , allegedly attended by 10,000 people. Jun 27th was 13 weeks ago. Since then Trump has held multiple other rallies, and  appeared on conservative television media many many times. He puts out his own press releases and has a website where he posts two or three blowhard pronouncements per day.

He's been banned from Twitter, which was a good thing because now the American public has had a full dose of the disaster known as Joe Biden.

"The same man who had access to the nuclear codes."

Which frankly should have scared anyone who had a brain in his head, because he fired anyone who opposed what he wanted and surrounded himself with those who enslaved their brains to him, and IMO absolutely justified what Milley has been criticized by the stagnant political opportunists for doing the right thing.

McConnell is the biggest hypocrite in the American government.  He so smoothly talks out of both sides of his mouth, agreeing with anything that serves him at the time and disagreeing with the exact same thing if it doesn't.  I need not list examples, they've been aptly reported.

My god. That almost made me physically ill.

Hate to break it to you, but the former New York billionaire would be a patrician, and he's more like Julius Caesar than a tribune of the plebs in that he tried to destroy the republic to remain in power. Much, much dumber than Julius Caesar, though.

He is also a lightning rod for the indoctrinated enemies of the people.

A sampling of the "Save America" Rally

More like a sampling of a tyrant continuing his treasonous behavior right out in the open.

Here's another sampling from that rally: Trump Falsely Claims Arizona Audit Found He Won 'At a Level You Would Not Believe'

"We won at the Arizona forensic audit yesterday at a level that you wouldn't believe," Trump told the crowd. "They had headlines that Biden wins in Arizona, when they know it's not true. He didn't win in Arizona. He lost in Arizona based on the forensic audit."

Trump is actively trying to undermine the American republic by repeatedly telling his supporters bullshit like this -- that they can't trust elections, even elections that have been reviewed three or four times, and even those managed by Republican officials. Hell, even elections in states where he won like Texas! 

Trump is a god damned traitor who tried to pull off a coup to overturn the last election. Fortunately, it was a fairly incompetent attempt and it failed. Even after replacing several senior pentagon officials with loyalists after the election, it all came down to Pence on January 6, who, to his credit (and about the only one) refused to play along with the act of treason and did his duty to the country and the constitution by certifying the election results.

When are Trump supporters going to get it through their heads that the only reason he wants the presidency is because it protects him from criminal prosecution? Well, that and the fact that he's an egomaniac. He is only going to continue this kind of performance art because it's a last ditch Hail Mary for him. He'll do whatever he can to delay things in the courts long enough to hopefully win another election and regain immunity, but he also needs to maintain a base for the next election. That's all this is. Unfortunately he can't maintain a base without the kind of deceit and "alternative truths" that got him into office in the first place, and if he destroys the country in the process of trying to regain power and immunity from prosecution, he doesn't care.

Democratic elections are what create and perpetuate republics. They are how a people authorize and install their own government, as opposed to having one forced on them by a conquering minority. They're how a people remain free and unsubjugated, with everyone having an equal, figurative seat at the table (a ballot). For crying out loud, stop supporting and defending a traitor who tried to pull off a coup to overturn the last election, and who is still, to this day, actively trying to destroy the republic with lies.
