What to do, what to do

Steyn offers a course of action for Trump to consider.

If the lawsuits go nowhere, what should Trump do? He’s never been a “normal” president, and he wasn’t elected to be one. Does he really want to mope around in the Oval Office until January 20th for a “peaceful transition of power” that he himself was denied (by among others Joe Biden)? Even if they never succeed in gaoling him, they will surely use the “peaceful transition” to put in place a couple of decades’ worth of litigation-without-end. Come to that, can he even trust the Secret Service agents they’ll assign to him?

He will never be a “normal” former president – because they are determined to exclude him from those ranks. If I were Trump and the litigation goes south, I would pardon Michael Flynn, Roger Stone and others and then get on a plane to one of my overseas resorts to play a little golf. After forty-eight hours, I would resign the presidency, having first ensured that Mike Pence would issue any necessary pardon.

I think the American people would enjoy Pence as president for a couple of months, and Pence would do the tedious interregnum shtick better than a justifiably sour and embittered Trump. And, if nothing else, it would oblige the Dems to re-order all their T-shirts, because Joe would now be the “47th president”. The political “norms” of contemporary America are mostly garbage: No founding father would have contemplated for a moment a two-year presidential campaign, and, if you’d suggested it, they’d have cried in unison, “Come back, George III, all is forgiven.” It’s a total waste of time, energy and money, culminating in a three-month “transfer of power” that the Deep State uses very effectively to ensure that as little as possible actually gets transferred.

But it’s impossible to change unless a sorely traduced guy with nothing to lose goes and blows it up. That would be a grand public service.

Go for it, Mr President – and then run in 2024 as the 21st-century Grover Cleveland.

I like it, but have a few more suggestions to tack on. In addition to pardons for one and all who were persecuted, hounded, and had their lives and livelihoods destroyed by petty, spiteful Democrat-Socialist pond scum, before he heads on off to some Bahamas isle for some well-earned R&R, Trump should:

  • Thoroughly and ruthlessly clean Deep State house via mass firings in every Federal bureaucracy—ZERO exceptions, from department heads on down to the lowliest janitor; not a single Swamp remora or Obama stay-behind should be spared
  • Declassify every last document even tangentially related to the Russia and Ukraine hoaxes; Operation Fast and Furious; Operation Crossfire Hurricane/Spygate; the Benghazi blunder; the Iran pallets o’ cash scam; HILLARY!!™‘s illegal shithouse server; Uranium One, etc, then execute a massive document dump to every media outlet in the world
  • Disband the FBI and CIA specifically, direct the US Marshall Service to forcible eject every employee and contractor without delay, then reduce the buildings they currently occupy to rubble
  • Sell off all office equipment, supplies, and furnishings left behind by terminated bureau-rats at fire-sale prices, then immediately raze the now-vacant office buildings they previously infested

After all that, Mr Preznit sir, declare it a job well done, accept the thanks of a grateful half-of-a-nation for your efforts, then head to the beach for plenty of sun, surf, and suds far removed from the soul-sucking toils of Mordor On The Potomac and its loathsome Orcs.

  1. While I think it premature and what the left wants in thinking of what to do IF the president fails to overturn the fraud, I like Mike’s suggestions but think Steyn’s are fairly useless in this case.

  2. After all that, Mr Preznit sir, declare it a job well done, accept the thanks of a grateful half-of-a-nation for your efforts, then head to the beach for plenty of sun, surf, and suds far removed from the soul-sucking toils of Mordor On The Potomac and its loathsome Orcs.

    Screw that.

    He should do everything on your suggested list and then refuse to step down.

    I like Steyn, but he’s cucking. He’s committing the standard Conservative error of validating the Leftist framing and arguing from a standpoint of their narrative being valid.

    Biden didn’t win.

    Not even a Supreme Court rubber stamp declaring him “winner” will make that so.

  3. One *BIG*one to add…

    Defund and kick the fucking UN outta here. Sell its building to Trump and let him use it for condos!

    We shoulda listened to the John Birch Society back in the 60s.
