My Hot Take On MAGA Republican John Eastman’s ‘Let’s Roll’ Post.

By Shelt Garner

Ahh, John Eastman. Trump’s favorite toady MAGA lawyer who thought up the ill conceived memo about how Trump could “legally” stay in power. If you read the thing carefully, it’s very breezy and caviler about how Trump might end American democracy once and for all.

Here’s the ending of something Eastman recently posted.

This is very bonkers because it’s like the “Spiderman pointing” GIF in written form. Or, in a sense, it reminds me of Lincoln’s Second inaugural address about how much the two sides had a lot in common and yet they still decided to settle things on the battlefield.

Eastman is a prime example of one of those guys who should know better. He’s an intelligent, well educated person…who has gone all-in with MAGA Republicans. It’s only because of enablers like Eastman that Trump has gotten as far as he has.

And, in the end, this is yet another sign that the United States either implodes into a MAGA-themed autocracy or we explode into some sort of civil war, caused by a National Divorce.

We’re In A Constitutional Crisis (Again)

by Shelt Garner

Holy shit.

Of all the things to come out of the January 6th Committee’s investigations, the fact that Ginni Thomas was talking to the legal “mastermind” behind Trump’s attempt to end American democracy about the inner workings SCOTUS is bat shit insane.

It is, by definition, a constitutional crisis.

There’s a lot to unpack here. But two different concepts are smacking up against each other and, as such, we’re in a crisis. The natural inclination of the Elites to defer to SCOTUS (and their wives) about everything is smacking up against the HOLY SHIT element of what Ginni Thomas was up to.

I mean, oh my fucking God.

This means there is a direct link between SCOTUS and Eastman’s efforts to prevent the peaceful transfer of power. That is some Watergate-level bullshit.

And, yet, if past is preface, we will all run around in shock for a few days and then this will fade into oblivion like every other Trump scandal. We just don’t have the political will to do anything about Trump or Trumplandia.

In all honesty, we are kind of getting what we deserve. If we don’t have the political will to do some chemo on the MAGA cancer…well…maybe that’s our own fault?

Just be prepared for Twitter liberals to decamp to the south of France in late 2024, early 2025.

We had a good run.
