Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: first, to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; last to not only fighting for personal privacy & the freedom of information, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same.

Lordy: Trump, Raffensperger January 2, 2021 Phone Call | FULL (1:02:04) AUDIO | STREAM or DOWNLOAD



LISTEN to the full audio of Trump's call with Brad Raffensperger, the Georgia Secretary of State, in which he puts pressure on his fellow Republican, again – this time directly — to a treasonous act of sedition: to overturn the results of the 2020 Presidential Election in Georgia by 'finding' votes and 'recalculating' the tally, and declare Mr. Trump the winner.


Make no mistake, such an act, which would disenfranchise many American citizens, is a serious and a punishable offense.


I have obtained this audio via a publicly available source, and am publishing it due to its being of particular relevance and importance to the public interest, to the current debate, and to the survival of our democracy; this, therefore, puts it squarely within the public domain.

The 2020 Election, Right-Wing Militias, & The Transfer Of Power In America | MUST-SEE VIDEO (with transcript)

 My fellow Americans, listen to what this man has to say.  Because we are not so different.  And we have still got the better part of a Republic.  If we can keep it.  Transcript below, after the video.



"Let's Talk About Trump, Michigan, and Whitmer"

 Transcript of video by Beau of the Fifth Column

 October 8th, 2020


 

Well howdy there, internet people.  It's Beau again, so I guess we're going to talk about Michigan, right?  Kind of have to.  Seems important.  So we're going to do that.  


We're going to talk about what almost happened, why it almost happened, and what it foreshadows.  

 

 See there are people in this country who are attempting to energize their base, and that's a thing, it's normal, it occurs every time there's an election.  The problem is, they're using rhetoric that is so divisive, so extreme in nature, that, uh, it's energizing people to do something else, and they've subjected the populace to this rhetoric for four years.

For four years.  


This is what it leads to.  


This is what it leads to, and in my opinion there are two people that hold a whole lot more responsibility for this than others, it's the President, the Vice President: because they refuse to commit to a peaceful transfer of power.  


See when the average American hears that, I think that they're picturing that cool congratulatory phone call from the loser to the winner, and that committing to a peaceful transfer of power means that they're not going to like go through legal battles.  


That's not the question.  


The question is will you commit to a peaceful transfer of power, and the answer is no.  They won't commit to it, so the answer is no.  


Avoiding the question doesn't mean anything.  The answer is no because they won't commit to it.  


That sends a message to go along with all that rhetoric: force is on the table. 


Here you go: the attempted snatch of a governor to spark it, to get that show on the road. And there's a lot of people who think that's a good idea.  Yeah.  Okay.  See. in the U.S., we've been insulated from it for so long — to a lot of people that's just something that happens in movies, or something that happens 'over there.'  It's not real. 


But see I think a lot of Americans remember when it happened to contractors 'over there.'  Remember the footage?  See, that's a pretty plausible outcome from these events.  That's something that could have occurred.  


How would you feel, when it's an American, on American soil, on their knees, bag over their head, begging, and it's being done doing by another American.  What's the reaction going to be?  It's a very real possibility.  


And yeah they failed this time, but they're allowed to, they're allowed to, they're allowed to hit and miss; their opposition, those trying to stop them, they have to hit every single time.  


Because it only takes once, it only takes once to cause things to spin out of control, to cause things to hit that point of no return — because once it starts it's really hard to stop, because the back and forth starts, and it's small little groups.  


We need to take a step back, and sadly the person who can accomplish that step back the fastest is somebody who has shown for years that they don't actually have the ability to lead.  They don't even understand that their statements are the cause of this.  


Yeah, that rhetoric started before this administration, but they certainly ratcheted it up.  Trump ratcheted it up, pitted American against American, for his own personal gain.  And it's going to be him, if, if we want to walk this back in the next 30 days.  And I strongly think it should be.  


It's got to be him.  


He has to come out and condemn this — AND commit to a peaceful transfer of power, because if he doesn't, if he just comes out and condemns it, it doesn't mean anything, because they'll take that as 'Oh well he had to say that for political reasons, but you notice he says force is still on the table.'  


HE HAS TO COMMIT TO A PEACEFUL TRANSFER OF POWER.  


He has to own this: try to unite the country, instead of divide.  He can redeem his whole presidency by doing this, because right now he set the stage with all this rhetoric of 'make America great' apparently by undermining all of America's core principles, everything that has helped this country.  


It's got to be him.  Sadly he's a man who has spent his entire administration defending the indefensible and refusing to condemn the things that need to be condemned. 


He has to commit to a peaceful transfer of power, or we may have another incident like this, we may have something else happen like this, and they might get it right, they might succeed.  


Nobody wants that. 


Nobody who's actually familiar with it wants that.


And it's really hard to stop once it starts.  


The President of the United States has to come out and commit to a peaceful transfer of power.  It's not a game.  It's not a movie.  That's where we're at, and where we're headed is into some very dark water. 


If you watch this channel long enough, you know I am not a fan of electoral politics — voting is the least effective form of civic engagement — [but] Trump has to lose in a landslide.  I am not a partisan person.  I'm not a Democrat.  I have never said that a President could be the downfall of the country. 


But  I do not know if the U.S.  Will make it if the President is reelected, because he doesn't have the ability to clean up the mess he has created through his rhetoric.  It is incredibly important that Trump lose big.


If you are part of the Trump administration, if you have any influence, he has to commit to a peaceful transfer of power.  He has to tone this down, and that's the way to do it.  Send the message that force is off the table.  


Because the message he is sending by refusing to commit to a peaceful transfer of power is that using force to seize or retain power is okay.  


People hear what he's not saying.  


This president hasn't made America great; he has brought it to its knees.  


Anyway it's just a thought; y'all have a good day.

AN ELECTION FIX IN THREE LETTERS: RCV (IT MEANS YOU'LL NEVER HAVE TO VOTE FOR THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS AGAIN)

Screenshot from Represent.US's "Ranked Choice Voting vs The Establishment," below.




It's called "Ranked Choice Voting."  Even if you think you already know about RCV, do yourself & your country a favor and watch the video below.  

Your country will thank you for it.  That is, if it makes it through being bearbaited into a race war, lullabyed so we can better be looted, & sleepwalked into lengthening a pandemic.

Andy Ngo: A Curated List Of Links Unmasking Portland's Most Dangerous Propagandist & Extreme Far Right Apologist


 

 

 Quick rundown:

- Andy was instrumental in the early dissemination of one of two videos that just so happened to begin before the shooting, and the only video to record the entire event.  

- Whoever recorded the second video also lucky enough to catch the event may be affiliated with whoever recorded the first. The people seen in the second video (and by implication, whoever they are with and who or whatever is taking the video) can be seen in the first video, around the corner.  (This of course proves nothing, is just interesting. They look to me like they are waiting for something or someone.) One of them glances directly at the camera in the first video, just before the shots are fired.

-Andy is pushing the narrative that "Antifa" is responsible for the shooting.

-Andy has been pushing the narrative that "Antifa" is violent in Portland for a long time. He has written a book about this, after being supposedly attacked (the details of which are in question), and also after

-Andy lost his position with a right wing newspaper for being at a bar with the extreme right wing group Patriot Prayer, as they were planning to target left wing protesters with violence, and not reporting on it or saying anything to stop it

-That right wing group, Patriot Prayer, was behind the caravan that rallied in a Portland suburb and then, protected by police (according to reports on Twitter), drove down to assault left wing protesters with paint ball guns and pepper spray

-The man who was shot and killed was wearing a Patriot Prayer ball cap.
