Then we have a group of Trump supporters planning to “neutralize” the police by obtaining their addresses, kidnapping a governor, and possibly blowing up a bridge. And we have a President encouraging folks to “monitor” the polling stations when they open for early voting. Sounds like the Republicans are planning a war while the rest of us just want to vote and let the chips fall where they may.

The recruiting effort is being done by Atlas Aegis, a private security company based in Tennessee that was formed last year and is run by U.S. military veterans, including people with Special Operations experience, according to its website. The company posted a message through a defense industry jobs site this week calling for former Special Operations forces to staff “security positions in Minnesota during the November Election and beyond to protect election polls, local businesses and residences from looting and destruction.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/private-security-minnesota-election/2020/10/09/89766964-0987-11eb-991c-be6ead8c4018_story.html The hell with the Republicans, they are our own worst enemies, they are worse than the ISIS agents ent to the US. . They have no respect for the Constitution. A broad brush is painting anyone who votes for Trump. You do not respect the US Constitution.

In August 2020, Taylor said that in April 2019 he had personally witnessed President Trump offer Homeland Security staff federal pardons for any criminal prosecution arising from their actions in stopping illegal immigration to the United States, and at that point Taylor decided to resign from the Department. White House spokesman Judd Deere rejected Taylor’s allegations, and described him as “another creature of the D.C. Swamp who never understood the importance of the President’s agenda or why the American people elected him and clearly just wants to cash-in”.
