As the inauguration carries on throughout today, many concerns and recent warnings tug at the back of the minds of all those carefully watching. Yet, once again it begins to have a feeling of hype, misdirection and sensationalism. The threats were however very real in their potential, but the question remains: was it all designed to pull the collective attention of the American people from … something, or was it all simply Internet boasting and delusions of grandeur as to one’s ability to actually disrupt what should be the most heavily guarded event of the year.
Ultimately, it’s clear that the threat was real, or rather, genuine for many out there, especially the stars and political elites who were, and are currently, calling for martial law to stop a Trump presidency, as irrelevant as that now seems. Those with the motivation to call for such an outlandish and half-cocked idea, clearly are only thinking of their personal motivations and not the repercussions of such an action, both on the remanence of this country’s democracy, and the individual rights of each American citizen. And one must consider how this entire race played into the soft coup that clearly took place during the election, and is taking place, and seems to be culminating with today’s inauguration.
In today’s episode of TLAV Political Roundtable, we dive into all this and much more, as we consider the future of a Donald Trump Presidency. One can only hope that President Trump is genuine in his promise to bring the power back to the American people; where it should have always been, and where it should forever remain.
