Fascism – The Capture of the Republican Party by TRUMP

Submitted by Pachamama

By the end of the business day, Thursday 27 August 2020, political history of the world would have been written by one Donald Trump. This grifter would have achieved total and unquestioned controlled over the Republican National Convention (RNC) apparati and inserted his brand in such a way that there would be no recognizable differences between man, family and party. The former Republican Party would have become an integral part of the ‘family businesses.

The current coming-out ‘party’ convention has been so organized so that not a whisper of dissent could be given voice. Every ‘man jack’ chosen to speak was to be a reliable Trumpeter. Only Hitler was this exacting. Dissidents were either skillfully sidelined, assigned to the political wilderness in search of uncertain futures or made to join the growing numbers of ‘never-Trumpers’ in groups like the Lincoln Project, in exile as outside supporters of Joe Biden, a man who himself, is less than compos mentis.

As Trump plays for keeps, the clear intention is the deployment of the party organization for the maximization of personal and generational wealth. He and he alone must be the richest man in the world. This is Trump’s personal party! This is all happening, while the Democratic congressional leadership is running around talking about passing this bill, and that bill. But none of this matters to Trump. For Trump, they provide good cover for him to reshape the political structure, under their feet, and in his own image, his brand. The Republican leadership, on the other hand, has been mere lapdogs to this new ‘King’ of America!

We would be unsurprised should Trump emerge from this convention gaining the added bonus of reducing the margins between himself and Biden, a post-convention bounce. This is the normal bounce expected, which Biden failed to obtain from his own theatrical displays of last week.

At the end of the day we would fail to see, if Trump is as successful as we assess he will be, the circumstances under which the current political duopoly formations could resist the type of transformation similar to that as imposed on the Whig Party of the early 19th century. The real question here is whether the Republican Party, as we have known it, is now dead or not? Given demography, some may wonder how it could have existed for so long. History may find that this has been achieved through systemic electoral fraud. This is a history of fraud with which the Democratic Party (DNC) has willingly colluded to ensure that the status quo is maintained.

Trump must be well-pleased with himself for getting away with the incessant moral and legal challenges he has mounted to the system. For example, no president has thus far, been subjected to an impeachment conviction but continued to successfully seek the party’s banner in a coming election. But nobody even mentions this fact. Such is the gravamen of existential challenges to the duopoly as presented by Trumpism.

Maybe, he was right when he voiced his truism that the president’s power is ‘total’. Evidently, his most loyal supporters, the fascist-Christian-evangelicals; court systems well populated by Trump loyalists; that critical mass of Euro-Americans whose every sinew is racist; the silent corporate elites who support both duopoly factions; and a bevy of supine congressmen and senators are now well-prepared to set-sail any remaining notions about ‘democracy’, ‘liberty’, ‘freedom’ down the Potomac River. The Potomac two-step on full display!

Trump has instilled such a perverse party ‘discipline’ that a Martian visiting Earth and landing on this convention would not believe that there is currently a pandemic and that north of 200,000 Americans, based on excess deaths statistics, lay dead. Even as a coterie of buffoons feels confident enough to compel a populace to believe that what is real is indeed fiction and that fiction is reality. Oh, where is George Orwell when needed most!

Internationally, the Dictator-in-Chief has wielded his fascist powers with ruthless efficiency. We could list the countries. They include Bolivia, Venezuela, Guyana, Belarus, Palestine, Syria and more. In the case of Guyana he, with hidden hands, was able to deploy CARICOM and the OAS to overturn an election and install the PPP on the basis that one of his associates in Washington was a paid consultant to the Jagdeo gang. What is currently happening at the so-called Republican National Convention has more to do with the future of empire and the fortunes of the Caribbean than anything happening in this region currently.

Of course, we expect Trump will be the next president. This we see as highly possible regardless to who wins the most votes, who gains the larger number of delegates in the Electoral College or what the exit-polling may suggest. A Biden victory will merely delay the inevitable. The American fascist dictator has already laid the predicate in order to question any adverse result. Before that, we are guaranteed an enhanced panoply of uniquely American electoral fraudulent measures, maybe by both sides, measures already in play. Will CARICOM and the OAS interfere like they did in Guyana or Bolivia?

Even if by some miracle Biden were to win, it would be another significant hurdle to get Trump out of the White House, physically. Biden is wrongly persuaded that the military brass will expel Trump under these circumstances. Given recent events outside this very White House and the irrational refusal of all elements of the military to arrest Donald Trump and subject him to a military tribunal on treason charges, we are not inclined to concur with Biden.

Trump has never followed any tradition or lawful requirement. He breaks more laws before breakfast that the criminals in his dungeons, it has been said. Also, he is much too fearful of going to jail, like he must, if a sense of political decency is to be re-established in Washington DC. We are therefore left to loiter on the good graces of ordinary citizens in an unlikely quest of removing a political carbuncle from the body politic.

We have been reminded that the Constitution requires the Speaker of the House, Pelosi, to assume the interim-presidency should there be long-lasting election uncertainty going beyond January 20th, 2021, as Trump is threatening with blatant interference in the USPS. But even if it were to come to this, we would fail to see any circumstances where the incumbent, Donald J. Trump would recognize her (Pelosi’s) existence. He may even have her arrested should she venture anywhere near 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The fatal flaw is the American political culture requiring the presumptive loser to accept defeat will serve merely to ignite deeper social discord and further the aims of the fascists. This is an environment Trump lives for and is clearly willing to ignite a civil war if necessary.

The classical definition of fascism has been the conjoining of political and economic forces, an unholy alliance. However, what we see emerging here through the use of processes to further disempower the masses and enrich the few is a more virulent formation than understood by the traditional definition. Lewis and Long argued well that when fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag. However, this writer is still left in wonderment that such a monster, from the cesspool of American fascism, would arise in our own lifetimes, at the centre of empire, even as we have always been acutely aware of the very nature of American political culture, which has always been fascistic at its core. We are left to wrestle with the internal contradictions.

    Mr Blogmaster, some days ago you posted about POTUS using some military action to gain more support towards election victory … and despite that being a standard presidential election cliche it seems some folks want to actually take you up on that!

    The news this week that Iran wants to retaliate with a US high-profile assassination who in this case is a Trump BFF (one of his big donor Ambassadors) is madness playing to that narrative.

    Ideally Iran realizes that any such action would do nothing more by get a powerful US reaction and likely propel this man back into the WH … if they are looking for an excuse to scuttle the Israeli-UAE-Bahrain accord then I suppose such action as an instigation to POTUS guaranteed aggressive response leading to open hostilities is their perfect geopolitical MADNESS !

    And then for this madman to ADMIT that he was talked down by Gen Matthis from an assassination attempt on Syria’s Assad is unhinged explosive electioneering …. It’s amazing how effective con-men are at contrasting THEIR absurdities as rational and demonizing the reason of those opposed to their madness.

    The PCR test picks up if you have COVID or if you once upon a time had Covid …. or a virus with a similar DNA as COVID.

    Chinese New Year placed hundreds of thousands of people in US cities, especially New York, in close proximity, nothing comparable in Canada.

    It was followed by the pre Lenten celebrations, Mardi Gras, in New Orleans.

    Look at infections in states where these activities occurred and they should have high infection rates.

    For this simple reason you would naturally expect the US to have more infections than Canada, and by far.

    The more testing that is done the more “infections” will be found but the number of infections that occurred in January, February , Mach etc cannot be determined and more than the number of infections in September can.

    How many of the 20,483 infections are infections from six months ago?

    According to a letter the Department of Education sent to Princeton that was obtained by the Washington Examiner, such an admission from Eisgruber raises concerns that Princeton has been receiving tens of millions of dollars of federal funds in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which declares that “no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.””

    Instead she gambled and lost, the Senate became Republican controlled in the 2014 mid terms and Trump won in 2016.

    The Democrats would not be going through this if Obama had nominated Merrick Garland in 2013 when the Democrats controlled the Senate.

    In 2016 when Justice Scalia passed he chose to nominate Merrick Garland without the advice and consent of the Senate.

    “As you know, the President has the authority to name appointees to the Supreme Court, but he has to do so with the advice and consent of the Senate.

    …The President is elected for four years, not three years, so the powers that he has in year three continue into year four, and maybe some members of the Senate will wake up and appreciate that that’s how it should be.” Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    https://time.com/4527889/ruth-bader-ginsburg-merrick-garland-confirmation/

    Justice RBG reckoned Hilary would win and the Senate would have no choice but to confirm Merrick Garland before she was inaugurated.

    Justice RBG lost her gamble in 2016 when Trump won the presidency and the Republicans maintained their control of the Senate.

    In July 2018, Justice Kavanaugh was nominated by Donald Trump.

    All hell broke loose as the Democrats tried to prevent the Senate consenting to the appointment.

    In November 2018. the Democrats lost 4 seats in the Senate as a result of their antics.

    Justice RBG passed in 2020.

    Donald Trump is expected to nominate a replacement by the end of this week.

    Both the Senate Democrats and Republicans have choices to make.

    The Democrats have already experienced losing 4 seats in the 2018 mid terms.

    Do they pull the old Kavanaugh stunt and risk losing even more seats in November 2020?

    How are they going to do it against a woman, and possibly a Hispanic one?

    The Republicans also are informed by the same election losses the Democrats experienced in 2018.

    Do some hold out and insist the vote not be taken till after January 2021?

    They could lose the Senate if the voters treat them the same way as they did the Democrats in 2018 if they go down this path!!!!!!

    Some could simply vote present and not oppose the appointment and so register their preference to wait until after the inauguration.

    The Republicans then would need 48 votes if all 47 Democrats opposed the appointment.

    Perhaps some Democrat Senators who face the polls in November may think twice about opposing.

    I reckon the Senate will move straight to the vote and not go through any investigation.

    There should be a new Justice appointed by the time of the elections on November 3rd.

    Those Democrats were protesting against the hypocrites aka Republicans who refused to allow Obama’s nomination of Garland to go through eight months before the Election; the same Republicans aka hypocrites who are now echoing the Democrats tune for Trump 40 days before the Election.

  • This election is critical for many. Especially the ultra wealthy and hedge funds who have put hundreds of millions behind Trump and Johnson and expect returns on their investment.

    One huge prize is the British NHS, privatisation of which woulf bring billions to the hedge funds over time.

    However, to get it done requires both Trump and Johnson, so losing Trump to the Democrat win now would ruin any chances if that deal.

    This is ultimately about money. While it is also about civil rights and racism, because those same backers are right wing money people who give not a whit about others and only use people as an economic input.

    But make no mistake, this is about MONEY and lots of it, they will not go down without a fight, a dirty fight and their showman frontman will go to extremes to do it.

    I was having some fun with folks!!

    The difference between the Republicans and Democrats is rather simple, surprised you can’t see it.

    The Democrats did not control the Senate.in 2016 and the Senate was not prepared to accept Merrick Garland.

    Obama should have sat with the majority leader of the Senate and found a mutually acceptable candidate.

    But Obama was on a power trip trying to impose his will on the Senate.

    The Senate, equally powerful, gave him the finger.

    He would not take their advice so they withheld their consent as is their role under the constitution.

    The Democrats went mad and the clips of them in 2016 are there for posterity.

    Trump has published a list of prospective candidates before he was elected.

    The Senate obviously agrees with the names on his list.

    The States obviously agree with the list.

    Can you provide the folks with a list of candidates the Democrats would support?

    The sensible way was for the two lists to be compared and the names which appeared on both to be nominated.

    That would be referred to as the bipartisan way.

    But the Democrats just don’t think that way … nor can they!!

    Rand Paul got into a neighbourhood dispute with a neighbour part of the issue was the way Paul cut his lawn – spraying his grass clippings on the neighbour’s lawn-, the neighbour (a retired doctor no less) broke six of Paul’s ribs, couldn’t happen to a nicer fellow.

    Its Texass after all, remember the time that the Texas Board of education had text books with information that slaves were immigrant workers?

    How about Gov. Abbot ordering the Texas State Guard to monitor a US Army joint exercise (Jade 15) in Texas because he feared it was a pretense for Obama to takeover Texas.
