Americans are beginning to wake up to the reality that Donald Trump’s coup is still unfolding. Hillary Clinton voiced the real national concern, without exaggeration, that our government was and is on the “precipice of losing our democracy.” Those who control the election process will continue the coup otherwise and illegally throw the election to Trump in 2024.
Clinton agreed with one of the House’s January 6 Select Committee members and Constitution law expert, Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD). He appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday morning and said:
‘It was certainly a violent insurrection and nearly a coup. It was a seditious conspiracy, an unconstitutional seizure of power, which is what a coup is.’
Clinton said in essence that Trump represents a “clear and present danger,” as C-SPAN caught the revered conservative, Judge J. Michael Luttig, on video:
‘We are standing on the precipice of losing our democracy, and everything that everybody else cares about then goes out the window.’
Secretary Clinton urged her party to look directly at the issues that “help you win” instead of more “controversial issues.” Losing the midterms “is so frightening..[all else] should not be a priority, The Financial Times reported:“
‘Look, the most important thing is to win the next election. The alternative is so frightening that whatever does not help you win should not be a priority.’
The Financial Times reporter brought up the transgender debate as an “activist cause” which he says is “relevant only to a small minority.” Then he asked about J.K. Rowling, author of Harry Potter. Apparently is anti-transgender:”
‘What sense does it make to depict JK Rowling as a fascist?’
It seemed that the former secretary agreed with the “premise of his question,” Then, she brought her laser beam focus to bear. She said the “defund the police” wording was bad for the Democratic Party:”
‘You need accountable measures. But you also need policing. It doesn’t even pass the common-sense politics test not to believe that.’
When asked about whether there was another run in Clinton’s future, she replied:
‘Some positions are so extreme on both the right and the left that they retreat to their corners. … Politics should be the art of addition not subtraction.’
But she believed that President Biden would run for president again in 2024 and said:
‘He certainly intends to run…[A Clinton run was] out of the question.’
Of course, her party is looking at Biden’s age. At 79 could he be the Democrat’s ideal candidate in the 2024 presidential election? And would his age reduce his power?
