Trump Firing Up Supporters Who Name for Martial Regulation and Political Violence

Following rallies over the weekend by supporters of President Donald Trump that included threats of political violence against his opponents and speakers calling on Trump to declare martial law, pro-Trump attorneys Lin Wood and Sidney Powell urged Trump to to tread the path of martial law.

Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, hailed as a hero by viewers on Saturday, has endorsed Wood’s call for Trump to declare martial law and use the military to oversee new elections. Flynn told rally goers that on a scale of 1 to 10, he was confident that Trump would remain president next year.

With a graphic that read “1776 Again,” Wood tweeted on Sunday that the courts could not be relied on, adding, “We have to trust @realDonaldTrump to take the necessary steps to save the country. Just like Abraham Lincoln had to do. “

We CANNOT trust courts to save our freedom. They ignore massive evidence of fraud and unlawful voting.

We have to trust @realDonaldTrump to take the necessary steps to save the country. Just like Abraham Lincoln had to do.

Remember: we, the people, have all power.

In another tweet, he specifically urged Trump to “order martial law to cleanse the elections” while insisting that this was not a “US government military coup”.

The mainstream media CCP propaganda wants people to believe that @realDonaldTrump will attempt a military coup by the US government.

Flawed nonsense.

President Trump must act to save the country and freedom.

It is time to move EO forward on foreign interference and order martial law to clean up the elections.

Sidney Powell replied to that last tweet saying, “Exactly!”

In the early hours of Monday morning, Wood encouraged supporters to stock up on food, water, flashlights, and batteries. “Remember, we only have one president at a time. Our leader is @realDonaldTrump, not Biden. “

Better to be sure than sorry.

Make sure you have plenty of water, groceries, flashlights and batteries, candles, radio, accessories for the 2nd Amendment, and a plan to meet with leaders in your communities.

Remember, we only have one president at a time. Our leader is @realDonaldTrump, not Biden.

Meanwhile, the president himself continues to portray his defeat as a landslide victory, insisting on Twitter on Sunday that the swing “CANNOT LEGALLY CERTIFY” its elections “without committing a highly criminal crime”.

In fact, all of these states have confirmed their results, and the electoral college members will meet today in the state capitals to officially cast their votes. Just days ago, Trump and some of his supporters were calling for state lawmakers to intervene in some way to override voters and reward the electoral college’s votes for Trump. As recently as Friday, Trump’s campaign was promoting a dishonest video that worked through exposed allegations and encouraged people to turn to their state lawmakers.

Despite their dire record, Trump attorneys are still banning the courts with lawsuits. And some die-hard are now hoping they can convince right-wing members of Congress to meddle in the final step of the complicated process of electing a president when the electoral college votes cast today are formally received and counted in Congress on Jan. 6.

At Saturday’s Let the Church ROAR rally, Stop the Steal activist Ali Alexander told the crowd that Alabama MP Mo Brooks had agreed to object to the House’s confirmation of votes and warned that if no senator was ready to join Brooks, “We will burn down the Republican Party.” His message to other Republican members of the House was to support Brooks “or we will kick them out of office.”

The Christian nationalist “prayer rally” in the National Mall was conducted by right-wing author and expert Eric Metaxas, who said, “We must fight to the death, to the last drop of blood” to secure Trump’s victory.

After such extreme rhetoric at the pro-Trump rally on Saturday, members of the violent Proud Boys trudged the streets of Washington, DC, beating people, destroying historic black churches and shattering the signs of the Black Lives Matter.
