No, not a play on “smoking gun“, a play on “smoking crack“.
I’ve not commented much here recently due to my workload, and certainly not on Trump’s refusal to concede the election…..primarily because the soap opera drama and utterly juvenile legal challenges seem to shift, twirl and change on a daily basis.
But I’m fascinated by the pathology of those who not only think that Biden [or some multi-named nefarious entity] “stole” the election….who believe that Trump actually won by a landside….but the also the sheer mythology they’ve created and bought into along the way.
Sidney Powell [of whom I was told on another site, was a sign of…..”serious lawyering“….heh], has been spouting off about a “Kraken”…..allegedly a DoD Cyber Warfare program that was either employed to steal the election on behalf of the “deep state” [meaningless and undefined moniker] or will actually expose such evil deeds. Powell [once a much respected attorney] publicly announced a few days ago, that she has “released” such a beast. Crickets…..
Other conspiracy-minded folk including retired General Tom McInerney [a staunch war hawk, regime-change advocate and reliable right-winger…he’s a real piece of work] have claimed that there was actually a firefight in Germany between CIA elements and Army Special Operations units, over an alleged seizure of a server that somehow held evidence of such electoral chicanery. Whew.
And to top it off, these people claim that the 305th Military Intelligence Battalion at Fort Huachuca, AZ…is the site of or manipulator of, said “Kraken”. Yep, an Army Basic Training unit is responsible for the Republic-ending calamity that now faces us……
At this point, to be believable……one would have to offer that nearly every person or entity in this nation, outside of the Trump legal team….is in on the great con against Lil’ Donnie. Someone is being trolled here.
I remain sad for what’s left of our Republic…..but also utterly fascinated.
*UPDATE* Commenter Paul posed a question where my response included the potential for a Martial Law declaration. Lo and behold, that same call [tweeted out by toxic leader and persistent national security risk Michael Flynn], calling for such a declaration, and a new election, ‘overseen’ by the military. Link
Banana Republic……you have arrived.
