You’ve been hearing it for a long time: President Trump will refuse to accept the election results if he loses in November. But now, a secretive group of former government officials has worked through a number of scenarios for the election, and guess what they found? War-gaming a scenario in which Trump lost the popular vote but won in the Electoral College — in other words, won the presidency — they found that it was Joe Biden and the Democrats who would not accept the election results. All hell broke loose, as a matter of fact. And then there was the “rogue individual” scenario…

    Interesting to see Never Trumpers participating in a war gaming exercise in which the Democratic Party violates the Constitution to prevent Donald Trump from being reinaugurated after an Electoral College victory.

    I wish I could say I’m surprised.

    The cream of the jest, of course, is that it’s called the Transition Integrity Project!

    Interesting to see that the plan is to remove Trump from office no matter who wins.

    On Scenario Three, since Detroit always has more votes (Democratic) than voters, thus I don’t think that is likely that someone is going to destroy enough D ballots to make a difference, thank you. The only way that could be done is with a nuke to downtown.

    I’m sorry but game planning a close and/or split victory is one thing (popular vote v. electoral college, etc) but the one where President Trump wins out right is bizarre and, frankly, shameful. I find it harder and harder to believe that (all??) Democrats are not anti-America. As usual an informative podcast by Mr. York.

    Democrat leaders are not explicitly planning, or endorsing a coup if Trump wins. But they are hinting that they are OK with one.
