In the past week, Americans learned that their nation is no longer on the verge of becoming a banana republic and that their representative democracy is failing. if it is not yet inoperable.
No sane person was stunned that Trump would refuse to pledge to a peaceful transfer of power if former Vice President Joseph Biden wins the November presidential election. The dirty sneak has tried to instill suspicion in the population about the legitimacy of an election that has not declared him the winner for months. It is irrelevant to Trump and his deplorable people that every electoral professional has verified that postal ballot papers are protected from “massive electoral fraud” and that the American elections have been virtually free from fraud or error for decades.
Trump is preparing the country for a constitutional crisis in November. What many understand is a (possibly) bloodless coup. To be honest, the concept of the American people voting who becomes president is anathema to Republicans, especially filthy Don Trump. So he and the Senate Republicans are taking steps to ensure that the people's voice doesn't count.
It is evident that Republicans and Trump intend to allow the Supreme Court to decide who will be the next president, and it partly explains the great rush to appoint a Christian extremist to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg and guarantee Trump becomes dictator for another four years and heralds theocratic rule. The Trump nominated woman is a die-hard Conservative Catholic known for her anti-everything, which is not Christian-Conservative.
It's important to remember that the Republicans allowed the High Court to appoint a Republican President in 2000, and if Trump and Lindsey Graham have their way, the High Court Conservatives will decide that Trump should be in November wins.
After Trump said twice that he would not commit to accepting the results of the upcoming election, Republicans offered lukewarm support for a peaceful transfer of power without contradicting the dictator. However, they revealed their true intent in seeking "an over-conservative endorsement from an over-conservative Supreme Court" so that the High Court can make the right (religious) choice for the president in the November election.
Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is one of Trump's most reliable bootlickers and, according to him, no American has to worry about a peaceful transfer of power. Graham said:
“People are amazed at the peaceful transfer of power. I can assure you it will be peaceful. I promise you as Republicans that the (Supreme) Court will rule, and if Republicans lose, we will accept the result. "
Of course, there's nothing in the U.S. Constitution that gives the High Court the power to decide who is president, but Republicans have shown time and time again that they are as unfaithful to the Constitution as stupid Don Trump. Nonetheless, they like to tell Americans that they are dealing with the Constitution, despite having disregarded everything in this document for the past five years that is inconsistent with the long-standing goal of the extremist religious right to build a theocracy. something that Trump is ready to do in order to maintain support for the Christian extremist cult.
If someone believes Trump will not challenge the Supreme Court and appeal, any outcome that does not declare him a winner is an evil fool. Remember, he has already filed a lawsuit to prevent election officials from sending postal ballot papers to voters in their states. Not that he expects to successfully control how states conduct elections, but rather to make it clear that under no circumstances will he accept losing.
Trump will do whatever it takes to hold on to power, and it doesn't take a scientist to find out that all of his rhetoric that the election is already against him is the prelude to questioning the results in the High Court – something that Republicans believe is what it will take to completely decimate America's fragile democracy and officially make America the dictatorship Trump dreams of.
