After reading hundreds of conspiracy theories over the years, I finally have one of my own! Yaaaaay!
So let me begin by saying this is totally made-up except for the missing Washington Times article. That part is true, or was true when I wrote my post.
Are you ready? Ok, here goes:
I wrote before about the three-hour December 28th (?) meeting in the White House with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and unnamed Republicans in which plans were made for the coming vote and rally on January 6th. I told you that the article that appeared in the Washington Weekly edition, mysteriously, cannot be found in the e-versions available on line.
So now this mysterious disappearance from The Washington Times has got me thinking there was more to the covert plan.
Here’s my conspiracy theory for your amusement or amazement, which ever, what ever.
The President summoned some key Republican zealots into the WH to ostensibly talk about challenging the Electoral College count by VP Pence. Once they started talking, it was clear the President wanted to talk about the rally being held on January 5th for MAGA supporters. He asked who the speakers were and made some suggestions about using Rudy Giuliani and Alex Jones to fire up the crowd.
Then the conversation turned to speculation and it isn’t clear who made the suggestion but it became a kind of joke if the Oath Keepers, Proud Boys, and/or the Boogaloo Bois might capture a Democrat or two and shame them on national TV. The President liked the idea and his minions began to spread the story among the followers that the President supported the idea of putting Pelosi or Schumer in handcuffs and show his base what should happen to all Democrats.
And it became obvious that if the Capitol Police were thinned out and there was a sufficient amount of delay, that a small cadre of Trumpian patriots might be able to make this happen.
And so the plan was hatched to motivate MAGA followers to storm the Capitol so a handful of patriots could hide among the crowd and then shame a few Democrats or a couple of RINOs on national TV.
That’s my personal conspiracy theory. Don’t steal it. There is nothing factual about it except for the missing Washington Times e-article written by Dave Boyer.
I have often said that you can’t make this stuff up… now I’ve learned that you actually can make this stuff up.
(sarcasm alert) But those darn Democrats have exploded the whole thing into some nefarious insurrection and then people were actually killed and, well, what was once a lark has now become something darker and more sinister.
I’m thinking I should turn this into one of those alternate Universe/portal stories where an alernate history happened. Might be good for a TV movie …or maybe a series!
Sigh…well..,making things up is fun but reality is better. I’m going back to watching the trial now. Oh, my! Who’s the idiot lawyer talking about Due Process when the impeachment hearing isn’t a criminal trial? What a maroon! Doesn’t he know that when Sen. Mitch McConnell says there will be no witness testimony that Due Process is broken into a thousand pieces?
You can’t make this stuff up! Lawyers are such idiots.
