I just had a thought. Some Trumpers are former Democrats angry at losing good jobs

and neither party working to fix that. Many of these voted for Obama. What happens if there are bitter nomination races between Business Republicans and Trump Republicans, and the Trump Republican candidate loses? Will the former democratic voting bitter Trumpers split and vote for Union Joe Biden and the Democrats?

Never heard of this group. GOP internal war has moved to the videos. No mention

of Trump which is interesting. They are branding themselves as the integrity faction. Like Reagan didn't spread the trikle down lie. Or use the southern strategy. Or destroy unions. They are running in the space Biden occupies too. Democrats need to be on how the GOP is anti union and not for the middle class. They want to cleave it and their cutting of taxes on the rich while trying to stop social programs lkie the ACA prove it. Once cleaved their will will entrenched rich and many poor like Mexico. Or Saudi Arabia. Or Russia.

Republicans think being small makes them big men. It just makes them

empty. Cue the SS at the Kurshners having to go to the Obamas' to use the washroom. The Mulroneys' did that 30 years ago to the police at the official retreat at Harrington Lake in Quebec. RCMP had to use a porto potty. Now we know what business people like the Trumps gossip about: how to be small when you get power. And the ones who control the narrative know that if you make people do petty things, they lose a bit of their soul and are unconnected and search out for more money and/or power to fill the void. And it never ends. And then they are at war with people who work for a living. Turns out connecting to people of all kinds makes your heart grow.

The Rich GOP say they want freedom, so how is showing fealty to Trump

and his mob freedom? It breaks one's spirit. No extra length of lazy river in the backyard pool renovation is going to mitigate that they are no longer masters of their own domains. People who would do anything for power don't really have agency anymore. They are peons. Corruption works like that. You end up intertwined, not free and a bit more dead inside because they know they kissed the ring of someone they don't respect.

I wonder if they worried authorities might be checking out their air b&bs

while they demonstrated tuesday night to get intel on their intentions, so vanilla isis took the helmets, zip ties, noose, and the bear spray with them in knapsacks, and preplanned that. Hypocrites love to teach others into being hypocritical to increase the humiliation of some other, and what could be more hypocritical than to act peaceful at a Jan 5th rally with a can of bearspray on your back. They must of had some insider police info from at least one member of the mob who 1) was police 2) travelled to washington to do an insurrection or helped plan it 3) knew police tactics of assessing the threat of rallies involving extremists. Like the FBI guy said on Bill Maher last week the authorities can be anywhere on the political extremist scale, just like any american. And there were at least 3 at the Capitol. I'm speculating. Who knows.

At the Demonstration Jan 5th the future insurrectionists went to, I pointed

out so many had knapsacks. I wondered why because normally a few people will be wearing one at any kind of demonstration. But never almost everyone. We speculated what was in the knapsacks and did someone send out instructions.

Do you think a huge part of those out Tuesday night had instructions?

I think he wants to run for President. He pushed Marco Rubio to get

back into politics after Rubio quit them after the 2016 nomination race. Then Ryan quit himself within 2 years. I guess he didn't want to get the appeaser/nevertrumper stink on him. Just speculating.

There is regression analysis out that says when people suffer

financial anxiety they think irrationally rather than rationally. Seems if they don't have a place in the middle class some will follow anything. We need to peel off the follower types from the pure evil types. Give them a good paying job and they will dream of a good retirement, maybe a cabin in the woods, rather than dream of the next Trump rally because thinking of their financial penury in retirement does not feel good and belonging to Trump does. We want them rational so they will be open to words.

Now they are purging. I don't think they reflect at all. They are talking too

about changing how the elites are educated. Saw that somewhere. Purges, re-education of elites... it is all so cambodia in the 1970s. At the very least we know what history they are reading.

Some republicans will never acknowledge Biden won because they

need the false narrative that the election was fraudulent in order to massively upend the electoral process and suppress more black votes (and other urban and suburban votes) in the future like awarding electoral college votes according to gerrymandered districts in the state ... or some things like that. IMHO They are already plotting. They are machines. The rest of humanity is exhausted by the events of the last two weeks.
