IN yet another extraordinary development in the saga of “will he, won’t he go”, calls have been made for President Donald Trump to declare martial law and impose a new election on the people of the USA.

Furthermore, retired General Mike Flynn, given a presidential pardon for his crime of lying to the FBI, has echoed that call by retweeting the offending item and adding: “Freedom never kneels except for God.”

The question must now be asked are there no depths to which some supporters of President Donald Trump will not sink? Is there no limit to the anti-democratic activities of these Trump cultists?

Put even more simply, when will the far right followers of the soon-to-be-ex 45th President of the USA just realise that their man is a loser and that he came a distant second in the presidential election over a month ago?

It must also be asked what possesses a man like Flynn who rose to be National Security Adviser, albeit for 23 days, to echo the absurd nonsense promulgated by the We The People Convention in a full page advert in the Washington Times. Mary Trump, the President’s niece who will be suing him in court after he stands down on January 20, tweeted about Flynn: “This traitor needs to be court-martialed.”

The Convention’s leader Tom Zawistowski, the Ohio-based Executive Director of the Portage County TEA Party, published the advert demanding that President Trump invoke limited martial law in order to allow the US Military to oversee a new free and fair federal election if legislators, courts and the congress do not follow the Constitution.

Zawistowski, President of the TEA Party-affiliated We the People Convention (WTPC), said in a press release: “We wanted to express our concerns to the President, to the legislators, courts and Congress that We the People will not cede our exclusive Constitutional right to elect our Representatives to judges, lawyers, courts, Governors, Secretary’s of State, Congress, corrupt election officials and local politicians, the corrupt media – or Leftist threats of violence!

“It is OUR EXCLUSIVE RIGHT to elect our President and that sacred right has been infringed by the massive, planned, illegal election fraud conducted by corrupt Democrat/Socialist Party operatives across our nation to steal our vote. We will NOT stand for it.”

Unfortunately for the WTPC, the advert appeared as Attorney General Bill Barr – a Trump acolyte – revealed that there was no widespread election fraud as claimed by Trump.

Agents from the FBI and Department of Justice investigated the many claims of electoral fraud, and Barr concluded: “To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election.”

He was immediately assailed by Trump’s supporters in the Republican Party and the right-wing media, but other outlets in the USA were too busy reporting on the news that Trump was going to give Presidential pardons to his family – even though they have not been charged with anything yet. Georgia state election official Gabriel Sterling warned that the anti-democratic statements by President and his supporters could get election workers killed. “This has to stop,” he said, “We need you to step up, and if you’re going to take a position of leadership, show some.”

Sterling asked the president to “stop inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence,” adding: “Someone’s going to get hurt, someone’s going to get shot. Someone’s going to get killed, and it’s not right... It’s time to look forward.”
