Who is trying to turn US into banana republic?



In the wake of the events surrounding January 6 in Washington, Wisconsin U.S. Senator Ron Johnson tried to downplay his role in trying to overturn the results of the election. Turns out he may have had more involvement than he cared to admit. President Donald Trump’s attorneys worked in Wisconsin and a handful of other states he lost in the 2020 election to line up fake electors who were ready to swear that in fact Trump, not Joe Biden, won Wisconsin. The fake electors got off with a slap on the wrist, but Trump’s attorneys are now facing legal charges in Wisconsin. They apparently hatched a plan to give the fake electors’ signatures to Sen. Johnson, who tried to get them to Vice President Mike Pence and convince him to certify the election in favor of Trump. Johnson is critical of the new charges against Trump’s attorneys, saying Democrats are turning America into a banana republic. But there are reports by MSNBC that there are text messages and other evidence showing Johnson was well aware of the effort to overturn the election. Johnson should come clean and tell the people of Wisconsin what really happened that day, and what his role was in it. Voters deserve to hear the truth.

    You are absolutely correct . We are also entitled to full disclosure on Hunter Biden business dealings and Lying Joe’s involvement in phone calls.
    We know Joe sat in on many of them.
    You and most of the press silent of course.

    Mr. Shaw, you really need to get and give the whole story about the election, not just what MSNBC gives you. Apparently, you forget they are not “fake” electors, they are “alternate” electors. The Dems had their own electors for every election that Republicans won. You don’t seem to remember that or call them “fake” electors. As for the subject of your opinion, the only ones turning this country into a banana republic are the ones currently in charge. This president is only a figurehead having his strings pulled by others.

    I have come to this conclusion about Mr. Shawn’s posts.

    1: He does not believe what he writes but wants to get a rise out of readers

    2: Or, he believes what he writes , has no critical thinking skills and is a complete and utter shill for the left.

    Would he state for the record which one?
    I doubt it
    As he should know by now, I go after both sides

      Nick, I have asked myself the same. Shaw may be one of those people who simply cannot be embarrassed and maybe is getting his marching orders from on-high (above quoting MSNBC that there are “reports”…that qualifies him as a total fool).

      The short answer to his numbing question is the Dems and the media (shaw included) have turned the US into a banana republic.

    I think it’s pretty clear who is doing the work: progressives, democrats, liberals, chamber of commerce republicans, that ilk that wants to have a ‘command and control’ society.
