What do you suppose they would do differently if they wanted a violent uprising?

The left thinks a "violent uprising" is something where people bring scale models of guillotines and gallows to a protest march.
 
Can they transfer that to the thinking of the vast majority? Possibly.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

 I heard about it on the way home from work, but have not looked at anything yet or read anything either.
  THIS IS BOVINE EXCREMENT...

 All the crud we have put up with over the years, from JFK  to Biden, and they pull a stunt like this.
 I'm really angry, I hope this backfires big time and Trum does a real housecleaning if/when he gets in office again

I seem to remember that one of the reasons Caesar seized power in Rome was because his enemies in the Senate were planning to convict him as soon as he was no longer Consul.  IMO, when a leader thinks he will be put in prison or killed after leaving office, will he leave office peacefully? 
Not quite the same thing here, but still a bad precedent.

Me? I'm guessing that there is some sort of procedural paperwork error someplace.
 
And that will be used to try to put nails in...
 
Will that work for, or against, the Democrats? Are they betting that they STILL have enough people hating Teh Trump?
 
I know they want to...
 
And they're hoping that all the people 10% of the people talking *expletive deleted*it aren't going to go out and do *expletive deleted*it...

The provisional IRA (commies though they were) had, what, a couple hundred active fighters at any one time during The Troubles?  And they tied up, what, 25,000 British troops at any given time?

They go full jackboot here and and it’ll make 1992-1993 Sarajevo look like a Girl Scout meeting, never mind any comparisons to Northern Ireland.

Call it 1mil LEOs if all jurisdictions in the USA.  Another basically 2mil active and reserve military.  Disregarding the constitutional limits on using the military domestically, and assuming their paychecks matter more than their honor or oath to defend the constitution for 100% of the members.  That’s at most 3mil jackboots.  Let’s also ignore any political ramifications.

At the same ratio as Northern Ireland that means a mere 30,000 “domestic terrorists” could keep all the jackboots rather busy.  That less than 0.05% of gun owners.

There are approximately 5,000,000 NRA members, right?
 
1% of those is 50,000
 
Considering it took two committed jihad monkeys to lock down Washington, DC for close to two weeks...
 
I suspect that a few folks may commit a massive error of hubris.

Trump's been being cagey about whether he's going to run in 2024 or not.

If it were me, this *expletive deleted*it would tip the scales to running.  And winning in whatever way it took.

Then it would time for some real house cleaning.

Will he or won't he???

Plot-twist: Trump wins 2024 only for the corrupt establishment to reveal he really did win in 2020, so he can't win a third time be president again.

Constitution says he can’t serve more than 2 terms (VP succession doesn’t apply).  Doesn’t say anything about winning the election more than twice.

That guy is exhibit A on why I will never vote Trump again. He means well and then surrounds himself with idiots. Unlike Biden who means evil but surrounds himself with idiot henchmen incapable of doing the deeds. Way more comical that way.

This guy says it would be difficult for this to be corruption/political because of all the individual steps to get the warrant. Yet he does say that there is a high probability this went all the way to the AG for sign off. It will be interesting to see what's in the warrant when it becomes public.

Which aside from this particular bullshit, makes me glad Garland never made it to the SC. Between his attacks on parents and his continually identifying everyone and their brother as extremists, he appears to have quietly become one of the most political AGs ever.

Also, side note, this was executed on the anniversary of Richard Nixon's resignation. Even if 100% coincidental, I'm sure it will spark conspiracy theories.

What makes you think the warrant will become public?

It concerns classified material,  and I'd be shocked if they didn't detail exactly what just so they could classify the warrant itself.  Derivative Classification for the win!!

Normies still trust the AG, the FBI and the rest of the system. My neighbor, a blue collar union guy is laughing and happy about this raid. He's a union Dem and is sure Trump is the bad guy. He called me up to gloat! I don't even talk politics with him at all. The only thing he knows about my political views is that I've voted Republican.

There will be plenty of political and social cover for the American jackboots when the time comes. They will be held up as the heroic standard of protecting Democracy.

Americans minds have been broken by the govmnt/education/media complex. They not only believe two contradictory things at the same time they believe dozens of impossible and contradictory things at the same time.

My Republican despising union neighbor conceal carries and even open carries. He 100% supports the Democrats. He knows I've supported Republicans because I've asked him why he supports the Democrat gun grabbers. You start talking to folks and you realize you can make long lists of common but incoherent beliefs/positions that contradict each other.

 
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead

If the goal was to make sure every able-bodied conservative voter votes come November, they're doing it right.

I wouldn't call that guy a "normie", but he does represent a subset of people that exist.  That is why Biden still has 30% or so approval rating when it should be much less.  People like him are part of that 30%.  And yes, some of them are armed.

From the cnn article:
Quote
A White House official said it was not notified about the search. President Joe Biden, a senior administration official said, was unaware of the search of Mar-a-Lago until after it was reported on the news.

Either this is BS and both the white house and biden knew, or they have no problem admitting to their own incompetence in allowing the fbi to go rogue. Reminds me of the Firefly quote: "A government is a body of people, usually notably ungoverned."

Those in power don't even bother pretending anymore that there are any restraints on their behavior whatsoever. They know they can get away with just about anything anytime with no consequence.
Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will... The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress. ― Frederick Douglass
