Wisconsin makes Trump pay for the cost of a recount. This is what his money buys...
Which-- in my mind-- dovetails into this episode of the Free Man Behind The Wall podcast.
The guest (Curtis Yarvin aka 'Mencius Moldbug') and the host (Pete Quinones aka 'Mance Rayder') are both capable of blowing-minds, but also capable of sneering down on the folly of normies-- while huffing jars of their own farts.
The content of this episode is good mind-blowing stuff. But I wonder if the presentation is fart gas. Maybe the only-reason I have any idea what they're saying-- is I've collected enough puzzle pieces-- from their other podcasts.
So-- I'll try to TLDR the good stuff:
Yarvin sez a 'sovereign' ruler is the person with the power to override The Rules (written and unwritten).
Trump advertised himself as-if he would exercise rule-breaking sovereignty: 'Drain the swamp', 'Build a wall', 'Bring Back Jobs', 'Make America Great Again'. Trump did upset the business-as-usual applecart, just by winning his party's nomination & getting elected & pissing on the status-quo news media consensus. But Trump was also too willing to appoint swamp creatures to key posts-- and allow business-as-usual to continue in The Swamp. When Trump declared 'off with their heads' the Deep State did not comply. And Trump reacted to their non-compliance with restrained dueling. Not a dramatic internal purge.
Yarvin quotes someone saying "my least-favorite German generals are the ones who march and battle all the way to the Rubicon-- and then just go-fishing in it". That's what Trump mostly did.
Did You Know?
In 49 B.C., Julius Caesar led his army to the banks of the Rubicon, a small river that marked the boundary between Italy and Gaul. Caesar knew Roman law forbade a general from leading his army out of the province to which he was assigned. By crossing the Rubicon, he would violate that law. "The die is cast," he said, wading in. That act of defiance sparked a three-year civil war that ultimately left Julius Caesar the undisputed ruler of the Roman world. -Merriam Webster dictionary
The thing-about exercising Sovereignty-- is the more you do it-- the more you'll have to keep doing it. When you cross the Rubicon-- you discover that's just the first Rubicon. It will be for naught unless you cross the next and the next and the next.
Yarvin contends that Trump can ALREADY legally win the election-- simply by ordering the legislative Houses in each state to override the popular vote-- and appoint electors who vote for Trump in the electoral college. The red-party controls the majority of state Houses. So all that's required is "party discipline". Same with the majority red-team Supreme Court... with "party discipline" Trump can command SCOTUS to rubber-stamp his re-election. The repercussions of such drastic action would be huge. Revolt in the streets. Blowback for Republican candidates in 2 years-- if the Republic even lasts that-long. Trump would have to pull an Abe Lincoln and firefight against all sorts of Insurrection. Flex sovereignty, cross bloody rubicons.
Applying Yarvin's perspective--
The election-law wranglings of Giuliani, the 'unleash the Kraken' mass-foreign-treason rhetoric of Sydney Powell... are still constrained play-by-the-rules moves on the game board. Sydney Powell's conspiracy talk about foreign & computer election-interference and mass-fraud... is not an escalation Up from the Democrat's own conspiracy talk about Russian Facebook Interference 2016. She's within the rules. Giuliani's legal stuff is well-within the rules of all the FBI and special counsel investigation of Trump. (The Dems just can't handle a dose of their own medicine.) Giuliani & Powell wield slightly-more aggressive scalpels than we are used to seeing from Mitt Romney republicans. But they aren't using machetes. We haven't seen the Republican equivalent of a hundred days of violent riots in the streets & fraudulent FISA warrants used to round-up Adam Schiff & Pelosi in GITMO.
Michael Malice recently said-- that he interrupts when he hears progressives call the NRA 'extremists' and gun 'nuts'. He says-- "you think THOSE are the extreme nuts? The NRA are the MODERATES!" You really aren't comprehending what a real Armed Extremist Movement would actually be-like.
I only visited The_Donald.win for the first time-- a week before the election. I've been watching them closely. I see some brilliant stuff there-- random people crunching election data on their home computers. I see a lot of dumb wannabe shit... they still think Pepe The Frog 'KEK' memes are the height of edgy humor. There's a form of 'party discipline' there... cult-like but at least it's not milquetoast... in their refusal to entertain any possibility except Trump Won The Election And Will Not Leave Office.
Their wild speculations about "The Kraken" are pathetic. And their idea of Crossing The Rubicon is dumb... it's all Red Dawn fantasies of suburban father-son moments with AR-15's vs. purple-haired drag queen story hour BLM trans-tards.
I think a 10,000% more viable rubicon-to-cross would look more like unabashed Gated Communities, Private Schools, and demanding Freedom Of Association with no concern for whether it's Nice... a willingness to be called racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, communist-phobic, backward, 'square', 'on the wrong side of history' ... and... perhaps most-of all, be willing to be called: un-democratic.
No need to reach for guns. Just let Portland, California, Atlanta, D.C. whereever.... each become a CHAZ and implode on their own. Stop sending them tax money welfare.
