Business Insider: Stone calls for Trump to declare 'martial law' in election loss - Business Insider.
https://www.businessinsider.com/stone-calls-for-trump-to-declare-martial-law-election-loss-2020-9

As a precaution it might be wise to invest in an AR 15.

Wouldn’t the military tell him to fuck off?  He’s not exactly given them reason to support turning the US into a dictatorship.


I honestly don't know.  Theoretically they're supposed to reject illegal orders.  Practically speaking the military doesn't select for people that spend a lot of time pondering philosophy, civics and ethics.  It's a culture that doesn't involve a lot of introspection and glorifies obedience.
For the enlisted ranks, you're probably right.  However, the officers, especially the higher ranking ones, are a different story.  Most officers have a minimum of a 4 year college degree and often more as they work their way up the ranks.

Also keep in mind that getting into the US military requires an oath to defend the country against all enemies, foreign and domestic.  If the generals deem a rogue president to be a domestic enemy, then their duty is clear.

The key will be if Trump can convince the military that the election was rigged.

Probably not the high up brass, but definitely a chunk of the grunts.

Quote
Attacking Joe Biden and seeking to exploit reports that his rival is struggling with Latino voters, Donald Trump boasted on Sunday of receiving “the highly honoured Bay of Pigs Award” from Cuban Americans in the battleground state of Florida.

Perhaps inevitably, and to the glee of the internet, no such award exists.

lol
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

I wonder what the award would be anyway?

The award for the Most Disastrous Illegal Invasion of a Foreign Country?

A digital ad released by a fundraising arm of the Trump campaign on Sept. 11 calling on people to “support our troops” uses a stock photo of Russian-made fighter jets and weapons.
The jets are Mig-29s and one of the soldiers is carrying an AK-47.  How much more evidence does anyone need to prove that Trump is in Putin's back pocket?

Serious. You just can't make this stuff up. 

After this story was published, the creator of the image, Arthur Zakirov, confirmed in a Facebook message that it shows a 3D model of a MiG-29, and that the soldiers were Russian models. He said it was a composite photo created five years ago and taken in three different countries showing Russian sky, Greek mountains and French ground.

“This is a completely recreated scene from various photographs of mine,” said Zakirov, a 34-year-old oil company analyst and hobbyist photographer based in the Russian city of Perm, about 700 miles east of Moscow.

“Today you hear about the Kremlin’s hand in U.S. politics. Tomorrow you are this hand,” he joked, saying he found the fact that his photo ended up in a Trump fundraising ad “pretty funny.”

It's a nice pic, so no issue with that - but they should have removed the soldiers+jets to the right and left so that you can only see 3 and not parts of the others.
They also should have chosen a pic with American jets and American soldiers with American weapons.  Because, you know, they want us to support American troops.

In fairness, they probably wanted it done quick, cheap, and by an intern.  So stock photos by someone who can't tell the difference it is.

People who can crop an image so it doesn’t slice through the subjects are the next target in the culture war.

On Trumps fashion choices. We gotta talk about that tie



Why does a billionaire not have a fashionable tie pin and instead uses some cheap scotch tape lol

And here he is always having the damn thing hang over his crotch


Has no one pulled him up on how sloppy and embarrassing he looks? Is he so surrounded by yes men they are afraid to tell him he looks shite?

Where do I have to go to be influenced by Russia?

Did any of you know, at the time, you're being influenced by the fucking Russians?
Did any of you need to be told you were being influenced?
Did any of you figure this out on your own?

Seriously, raise your hand and proclaim you were influenced. 

Do you have a measurable I.Q.?
