When a particular type violence occurs in one place, it generally happens in another. A copy cat effect.
An event yesterday occurred in Guatemala City which could easily occur in Washington, D.C. Or, any other capital city for that matter.
Yesterday protesters in Guatemala City set fire to their Congress. Heavy stuff.
Guatemala is experiencing difficult times. Two bad hurricanes recently hit. The people were hurting big time before the hurricanes. Worse since. Their Congress seemed to be doing nothing to help.
Congress passed cuts to education and health. At the same time, the legislators passed a bill to increase their own meal stipends.
Thousands in the streets. They had it. They set fire to Congress from the inside. One portion of Congress was severely damaged.
A picture appeared on the internet this morning showing a protester standing in front of the burning building giving the finger with both hands. A smile on his face.
It could happen here, including the finger. Our Congressional building could be set on fire. Perhaps even the White House.
American people are upset on both sides of the spectrum. Who knows what will happen. If it does, the U.S. definitely will have become a third world country.
My concern a serious one. Americans are upset. About everything. They are equally divided. Each side believing themselves to be correct.
When something different happens in one place, persons in another say…..”Hey ! A good idea!”
It could happen here.
Sidney Powell, a new leader of the pack. The legal group working for Trump to upset the election.
What happened to Giuliani? Quietly overnight has Trump replaced him with Powell? Giuliani’s track record having left nothing to be desired. Or is Giuliani still involved to whatever degree?
Powell is a Dallas attorney. Her background indicates a tough lawyer who enjoys working the difficult cases.
In the last 48 hours, Powell announced that this week she was going to bring a lawsuit of “Biblical proportions.” Warning in effect that the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were coming down on Georgia.
Indications are Powell is no different from Giuliani with regard to charges involved: “Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
Her charges sound horrendous and gigantic. The wrongdoing by the Democrats beyond belief. Powell claims she has “tons of evidence.” As Giuliani did.
She has been asked by the media to share the evidence. So far, nothing. It is suspected “nothing” because there is nothing of substance. Hers the same type cases Giuliani had been bringing, with a new twist.
Her theory involves conspiracy. Among other things, she will claim Democrats used an “algorithm” to switch votes from Trump to Biden. The argument will then indicate the algorithm failed because of the unanticipated large Trump vote. The Democrats then had to switch their wrongdoing to something else. The something else being the manipulation of the mail in ballots.
Powell appears to be a QAnon supporter. She has been known to run QAnon slogans on her social media site. Those referring to a conspiracy involving a cabal of child abusers in the life of the liberal elite manipulation of world events.
Powell also concurs with the QAnon claim: “The Storm Is Coming!”
This day in 1963 was a sad one. One of the saddest in U.S. history. President John Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald.
The entire nation mourned. Political affiliation had nothing to do with their sorrow. Kennedy had brought a new vibrancy into the White House with him. Hope sprang eternal.
Then it ended.
The nation did not feel that same exuberance again till Barrack Obama was elected. As Kennedy had, he brought with him that special excitement.
Enjoy your Sunday!
