Or, y’know, cometh not.
A popular catch-phrase among pro-Trump patriots is: “Nothing can stop what is coming.”
This is based on the theory that there are things quietly going on behind the scenes, that President Trump still has a hand in what is happening today.
Perhaps he is laying a giant trap for Democrats and the deep state establishment. Or perhaps the military is in control under the theory of devolution.
Or perhaps, this is all delusional wishful thinking.
I gotta go with door number two, Monty.
Devolution is an interesting concept of continuity of government plans. Its purpose is to maintain government leadership in the event that constitutional successors are incapable or incapacitated. A small and select group of military leaders would be in charge, running a shadow government behind the scenes in the event of some catastrophe.
This scenario would have kicked in if the military believed that the COVID pandemic and electoral fraud were acts of war against the U.S. by foreign and domestic actors. Some have written extensively about devolution, telling a compelling story, but that is all it is, a wishful thinking story in contradiction to what we are seeing around us. If it turns out to be true, this past year will have been the greatest show of all time. But I’m not holding my breath.
Nor should you be. There is no savior coming to our rescue, no Knight in shining armor on a white charger galloping straight out of a fairy tale to slay our enemies and save our bacon at the last second for us. There’s only…us, and that’s absolutely it. If said bacon IS to be saved at the last second, we’re the ones who are gonna have to roll up our sleeves, harden our hearts, stiffen our spines, and get it done ourselves. T’was ever thus; t’will ever be thus. Which, actually, is no bad thing; if we had properly tended to the business of vigilantly safeguarding our sacred heritage of freedom, as our Founders explicitly instructed us to do, we wouldn’t be facing the difficult and uncertain struggle now before us.
There is much wishful thinking in the belief that “nothing can stop what is coming.” Maybe nothing is coming.
Was the election on the up and up? Did COVID provide the ideal excuse to change election laws at the last minute, against Constitutional provisions and the law, to facilitate fraud? If Biden really won 12 million more votes than Obama in 2012, why are we hearing chants of “F*** you Biden” at college football games, from college students who “turned out in droves” for Biden?
There were too many coincidences in late night vote-counting, stopping and starting, to say the election was fair and proper, but so what? This probably wasn’t the first dodgy election in America and certainly won’t be the last.
Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence, but until such evidence can be produced and acted upon, it’s all “hopium.”
There is no evidence of a Trump-led shadow government pulling the strings. Yet there are shadow websites like Real Raw News, telling us of arrests, tribunals, and executions of prominent people like James Comey, Tom Hanks, Susan Rice, and Hillary Clinton, people who appear in public days after their supposed execution.
At the same time, the Durham investigation plods along, with hopes of a reckoning for Spygate conspirators. Five years have gone by with zero real punishment for anyone involved in weaponizing America’s intelligence, law enforcement, and justice agencies against a presidential candidate and subsequent administration.
Trump likes to say, “I caught them all” which provides hope, but who exactly has been caught and what is their reckoning? So far that’s been a big zero. Without signs to back up the words, it’s all just hopeful talk.
Trump laid it out before the 2016 election in a powerful but little known speech where he said:
Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the American People. There is nothing the political establishment will not do, and no lie they will not tell, to hold on to their prestige and power at your expense.
Yet here we are. Trump certainly tried, but it seems the “failed and corrupt political establishment” won, holding on to their “prestige and power”. It’s not for lack of trying but even the likes of Donald Trump as president was not enough to slay the deep state dragon as he was largely alone in his efforts in Washington D.C.
Maybe something is coming, maybe not. As America descends into Cloward-Piven chaos and a Marxist future, what will stop the disasters that keep coming and coming?
Only us. Like it or not, ready or not, up to the task or not—all are required to face the cold, hard truth of the thing: There’s no one else. There’s only us. Which is only meet and just; it was always our job anyway, our burden and responsibility, and will always will be.
