Video from Amanpour & Company
"Barton Gellman was among the journalists who predicted in 2020 that President Trump would not admit defeat if he lost the presidential election. Now, in a cover story for The Atlantic, Gellman says the former president is in an even better position to seize power. He speaks with Hari Sreenivasan about why he believes democracy will be on trial in the 2024 presidential election. Originally aired on December 10, 2021." from video introduction.
We live in a time in which many events are in convergence.
The Spiritual war that rages around us has all of us at its center. We are not bystanders or audience members.
We in America have evil on the Right and evil on the left. Which devil do you choose? Many Americans are "hellbent" on America becoming an authoritarian nation. Even fascism is now ok as long as we all get America back! Our public hero's are now outright criminal in word if not deed! WILL AMERICA AS WE NOW KNOW COME TO AN END IN 2024? WILL BE COME JUST ANOTHER AUTHORITARIAN NATION?
As Christians we should be on our knees praying to the only person who can lead us and save us, Christ Jesus!
"Technically, the next attempt to overthrow a national election may not qualify as a coup. It will rely on subversion more than violence, although each will have its place. If the plot succeeds, the ballots cast by American voters will not decide the presidency in 2024. Thousands of votes will be thrown away, or millions, to produce the required effect. The winner will be declared the loser. The loser will be certified president-elect. The prospect of this democratic collapse is not remote. People with the motive to make it happen are manufacturing the means. Given the opportunity, they will act. They are acting already.
Who or what will safeguard our constitutional order is not apparent today. It is not even apparent who will try. Democrats, big and small D, are not behaving as if they believe the threat is real. Some of them, including President Joe Biden, have taken passing rhetorical notice, but their attention wanders. They are making a grievous mistake.
“The democratic emergency is already here,” Richard L. Hasen, a professor of law and political science at UC Irvine, told me in late October. Hasen prides himself on a judicious temperament. Only a year ago he was cautioning me against hyperbole. Now he speaks matter-of-factly about the death of our body politic. “We face a serious risk that American democracy as we know it will come to an end in 2024,” he said, “but urgent action is not happening.”.. from the article: TRUMP’S NEXT COUP HAS ALREADY BEGUN
