    I'm seeing a lot of right wing outrage on twitter. Pence, Brian Kilmeade, etc. All demanding answers.

    I can't believe Pence is going that route but I guess we shouldn't be surprised.

    Lol Eric Trump said the safe was empty.  However he didn't say if the search of the rest of the premises came up with nothing.  Obviously MAGA will latch on to the safe was empty narrative.  It would be nice to know what if anything was discovered in the raid.
    The DEA joined the raid and ensuing investigation after 285 pound of dope was found.

    Not necessarily. Raiding a former presidents home is a big deal. This better be more than “misplaced classified documents.”

    Either one of a few things this better be: top secret documents that show he clearly put Americans in danger or proof beyond doubt he committed serious crimes regarding Jan six. Anything falling short may have just given the Rs fuel to get trump back in good graces with swing state voters. And it fits right in with his “deep state” narrative unless they have proof very soon their actions were justified.

    And it better be quick. The more this gets delayed the more outrage the right will generate. This all should have been anticipated before the raid, and they better have hundreds of agents going over the docs 24/7, and disclose they are in possession of overwhelming proof of serious crimes to be made public soon. This is the type of thing you don’t do to a former president unless you are about to indict for treason.

     And if it’s not a clear cut obvious and dangerous crime, this could be a huge mistake by garland. It’s not like they just raided Stone Gossards home.

    The media- including the so-called "liberal media" keeps calling the searching of Mar-A-Lago a "raid".  It wasn't a raid.  It was legally searched by warrant (the only commentator who seems to get this is Heather Cox Richardson).  Calling it a "raid" is feeding the anger of the Cult-45.   Not a very bright move.

    I remember 10 guys holed up.  They didn't get close to taking over the country.
    Seemed like 50 guys or less stalled the military in nearly every city and village in Iraq and Afghanistan for the better part of 20 years.

    it’s not like these guys were elite soldiers either and they didn’t have aircraft or tanks.

    we aren’t that great at urban warfare fighting non traditional forces if we aren’t carpet bombing. I think the government will be even more concerned about civilian casualties here 

    weather it happens or not I think we shouldn’t overestimate the government’s ability to respond to an asymmetric threat.  Taking over the country probably isn’t the goal.  Chaos and retribution is .  I’m sure plenty would love to have a shootout if they try to arrest trump.  That’s how it could start

    So your measure is somewhere between 10 guys holed up and taking over the country? Bundy’s weren’t held accountable. Neither was David Koresh without a bunch of people dying. You can’t imagine a scenario where Mar-I-Lieo is surrounded by heavily armed POOTWH supporters not allowing the feds to arrest and book him? Taking over the country is your definition of “bad things happening?”

    I remember 10 guys holed up.  They didn't get close to taking over the country.

    Yeah these guys were a real threat to the US govt.  A drone could have wiped them out if the govt were inclined to do so.  Their power came from the knowledge that the the govt wouldn't harm them unless in defense. Seriously,  you think they couldn't have been eliminated in ten minutes?

    I'm seeing a lot of right wing outrage on twitter. Pence, Brian Kilmeade, etc. All demanding answers.

    I can't believe Pence is going that route but I guess we shouldn't be surprised.

    Weird!  Trump's people wanted to kill Pence on 1/6!

    Not necessarily. Raiding a former presidents home is a big deal. This better be more than “misplaced classified documents.”

    Either one of a few things this better be: top secret documents that show he clearly put Americans in danger or proof beyond doubt he committed serious crimes regarding Jan six. Anything falling short may have just given the Rs fuel to get trump back in good graces with swing state voters. And it fits right in with his “deep state” narrative unless they have proof very soon their actions were justified.

    And it better be quick. The more this gets delayed the more outrage the right will generate. This all should have been anticipated before the raid, and they better have hundreds of agents going over the docs 24/7, and disclose they are in possession of overwhelming proof of serious crimes to be made public soon. This is the type of thing you don’t do to a former president unless you are about to indict for treason.

     And if it’s not a clear cut obvious and dangerous crime, this could be a huge mistake by garland. It’s not like they just raided Stone Gossards home. 

    10 more boxes bringing the total to 25 in all. Haven’t seen reporting of estimated number of documents or general subjects or degree of classification.

    Stop and think about what a drone strike on US  citizens, on US soil, in the absence of due process would result in. For just a minute. Guess you don’t think that would be a “bad thing?” Good lord is this country fucked.

    I do know.  Again,  that's my point.  Bundy and crew knew that too.  But if we really were having a "civil war", they would be wiped out. These guys are cos players and only the morons don't know how they have zero chance against the govt.  

    You guys are making my point about how all this talk is fanciful.  

    I was on a plane to Chicago yesterday and was picked up by the ceo of one of our suppliers.  He's a legging R.  He don't give a crap about Trump or this.  I asked him these same questions and his attitude was as I suspected.  No way is he giving up anything for the idiot Trump.

    I think you’re vastly under estimating the level of devotion and cray-cray. We’re not talking boat owners and CEOs giving up their comfy life styles for POOTWH. We’re talking lower class, undereducated and easily grifted folks with firearms who feel it’s the government’s fault their $50 donation to POOTWH’s defense fund didn’t stop the government and/or the “other” that’s sitting across from them at Golden Corral or Cracker Barrel. There’s way more of those types than your CEO or boat owner types.

     Did your CEO ever participate in a POOTWH parade or attend one of his rallies? Probably not but yet he still might have donated to him or the repub party and voted for him. That’s what fuels the cray cray. We’re seeing it play out now with repubs defending POOTWH and demanding the Dems produce, explain or be eliminated. It’s backwards. Parties of grievances never lead to good things happening.

    Stop and think about what a drone strike on US  citizens, on US soil, in the absence of due process would result in. For just a minute. Guess you don’t think that would be a “bad thing?” Good lord is this country fucked.
    I do know.  Again,  that's my point.  Bundy and crew knew that too.  But if we really were having a "civil war", they would be wiped out. These guys are cos players and only the morons don't know how they have zero chance against the govt.  

    You guys are making my point about how all this talk is fanciful.  

    I was on a plane to Chicago yesterday and was picked up by the ceo of one of our suppliers.  He's a legging R.  He don't give a crap about Trump or this.  I asked him these same questions and his attitude was as I suspected.  No way is he giving up anything for the idiot Trump. 
    I’ve gotten the same responses after speaking with some republicans.  Seems the majority have moved on and those left supporting him won’t listen to reason now and never will.  Their need for “cult” affection is too strong because so much else is lacking in their lives.  
    These militias in particular have been training for years.  Now they have a cause rather than generally being anti government.  Once you combine all those nutty groups, it’s concerning that they are all united behind a common cause.  

    When you add up the militias, the white nationalists, the pro life militants etc. it’s a lot.

    every single group as separate entities have engaged in violent terrorism.  Oklahoma City, Abortion clinic bombings, mass shootings etc
    It is particularly concerning because there has never been a time when the military and police have been more likely to be on their side.
    That might seem true, but it is not. Biden did a whole hell of a lot better with the military vote than Hillary did.

    Where are the protests and violence today? Is there a news blackout? Surely 35% of the country is marching to war,  singing the Grapes of Wrath. 
    Bad things happening take time. Wait until he's arrested and charged with a crime, remanded to home confinement with an ankle monitor and surrenders his passport(s). Remember the Bundy Ranch?

    I think they represent localized risk,  but not risk to the govt and its ongoing ability to function. 
    I think that’s the difference 

    my concern is that localised problem in multiple locations. I think you are coming at it from a overthrow the government perspective in a traditional sense.

    creating enough localised chaos and you do limit the government’s ability to function.  There may still be a government but if it’s not in control is it really a government?

    they don’t need to take Washington DC.  I also don’t think they could.
