Trump Calls For Violent Overthrow Of State Govts While His Campaign Accuses Dems Of Trying To Steal Election

History is being made every day of this sordid debacle of a Republican administration, but Friday, April 17 will unquestionably be tagged in the history books under sedition. It is, to the best of my knowledge, the only time in American history that a sitting president has called for the violent overthrow of a democratically elected state government.

Molly Jong-Fast is Editor of the Daily Beast. David Rothkopt is the author of “Traitor: A History of American Betrayal From Benedict Arnold to Donald Trump”

Here’s the bottom line: Donald Trump wants to win reelection at whatever cost. He is oblivious to reality and the cost to America in what he is trying to do. He doesn’t care. He will do anything to stay in power. To that end, early afternoon EDT, the Trump campaign released their weekly email/fundraiser, accusing Democrats of stealing the election via “ballot harvesting.”

And this batshit tweet was written just three days ago.

Trump is referring to absentee ballots, and the sublime irony of this is that the only case of “harvesting” absentee ballots was on the part of a Republican congressional candidate in 2018, Mark Harris, North Carolina District 9. Huffington Post, February 19, 2019:

…investigators had evidence that McCrae Dowless, a political operative working on behalf of the Harris campaign, filled out and mailed in incomplete or blank ballots from both his office and home. She said Dowless paid people in cash to collect requests for absentee ballots and the ballots themselves. The state board also has evidence, she said, that Dowless paid people to falsify signatures on absentee ballots indicating that they had witnessed those ballots being filled out (North Carolina requires two witnesses to someone filling out an absentee ballot).

It is not illegal to help someone request an absentee ballot in North Carolina, but it is illegal for anyone other than a close relative to take custody of the actual ballot.

[Kim] Strach [Board of Elections Director] said Dowless took several steps to conceal the fraud. Those measures included using the same color ink as the voter who filled out other parts of the ballot, mailing the ballot from a post office close to the voter and placing the stamps on the envelopes in a certain way not to raise red flags.

And don’t forget the story of the campaign worker in Florida changing voter registrations from Democrat to Republican without their knowledge. This is who we are dealing with and this is what it is. Democrats need to wake up to the extreme emergency that we are in now and realize that this 2020 Election is a turning point in history. We need to safeguard this election, first and foremost, and we need to win it — or America is done. I don’t think these remarks hyperbolic, I deem them plain and simple. This is how bad it’s gotten with the GOP as a rotten husk of a political party and Donald Trump as it’s corrupt and subversive standard bearer. Trump is flailing and desperate and cornered rats are not pretty. The only way he can save face when he loses horrendously in November is by setting the stage now that it’s all a Deep State Democratic plot. This will be Fox News’ dominant narrative from here on out as Trump tanks in the polls and the economy continues to flounder. Take note.

How long does this country have to continue with this SOB and his threats. Because we know Bone-Spur Donnie doesn’t really want a war. But enough is enough, it’s time for somebody to put this sick puppy back in reality. And that is he’s not the only bully around. Why in the hell do people have to put up with his BS. I just can’t wait for God to have enough of him too.

We certainly need to be” liberated from Trump”, and his terrible family . Any President that called for the” over though of any state government ” is guilty of SEDITION ,as well as calling for the over thought of any state itself .He’s actually named the states, and his intentions toward that end [which would be” suborning” treason ] by his followers, because by that definition, Trump has declared himself as an “enemy of the various states’ he’s mentioned . This in itself is another” Impeachable “offence. Our Democracy is under siege, by the President and the Republican party, who… Read more »

This is the mark of a traitor. He is encouraging a civil war. That should be enough to remove him.
Is it true he sent our ventilators to russia?

If there was ever a time for over throw of anything it should be the White House. Throw Trump, his brats and his flunkies out. Indict, try and imprison every single one.

“GET RID OF BALLOT HARVESTING, IT IS RAMPANT WITH FRAUD. THE USA MUST HAVE VOTER I.D., THE ONLY WAY TO GET AN HONEST COUNT!”

Speaking of Voter I.D., does Trump have one? If not, he cannot be allowed to vote anywhere. Boy would that hurt! One less vote for him. Since I wouldn’t put it past him, he probably already votes in 3 places; N.Y., Fla. and D.C.

LIBERATE THE WHITE HOUSE!!! LIBERATE THE U.S.!!!
