    • Roger Stone Calls For Trump To 'Declare Martial Law' To Seize Power If He Loses

      Long-time Donald Trump confidant, and convicted felon, Roger Stone said that the president should declare “martial law” to seize power if he loses what Stone characterized as an already corrupt election.

      The results will only be legitimate if the “real winner” — Trump — takes office, regardless of what the votes say, Stone declared. A loss would apparently be justification for Trump to use force to take over the nation.

      Stone, who worked as an adviser in the last Trump campaign, made the astonishing statements Thursday on the InfoWars program of far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Both men talked of an ongoing “coup” against Trump, and Stone inexplicably claimed that he predicted “almost three decades ago that this moment would come.”

      Stone appeared resigned to a Trump loss — but blamed it on the baseless claim that early voting has already been “corrupted.”

      To safeguard Trump’s position, Stone called for federal authorities to seize ballots in Nevada, for FBI agents to physically block certain voters from casting their ballots, and for Trump to use his powers for widespread arrests to solidify his power
      , Media Matters first reported.

      Under martial law and the Insurrection Act, Trump will have “the authority” to arrest Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Apple CEO Tim Cook, “the Clintons” and “anybody else who can be proven to be involved in illegal activity,” Stone said. He also called for the immediate arrest of former defense secretary James Mattis for “sedition,” apparently because he feared Trump was unfit for office, according to Washington Post journalist’s to Bob Woodward’s upcoming book, “Rage.”

      In addition, Stone warned, journalist also risk arrest. “If the Daily Beast is involved in provably seditious ... acts” in a new Trump future, their “entire staff can be taken into custody and their office can be shut down.” “They want to play war, this is war,” he added.

      Stone demanded that “the ballots in Nevada on election night should be seized by federal marshals” and not counted, claiming with absolutely no evidence that “they are completely corrupted.”

      While such off-the-rail suggestions could easily be shrugged off from most, Stone is a high-profile friend of the president and has his ear, critics fear. Harvard law professor and Constitutional expert Laurence Tribe warned that Stone’s “advocacy of totalitarian takeover by Trump has to be taken seriously.”

      Former Nixon White House counsel John Dean blasted Stone for calling on Trump to “declare himself America’s dictator” — voicing what “many Republicans crave.”

      Stone dodged 40 months in prison thanks to Trump, who commuted his sentence in July. Stone was convicted of seven federal felonies, including lying to Congress and witness tampering in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Jones called Stone “almost a political prisoner.”

        Mr Stone is getting worried about facing justice in Januay.

          Come on Roger, don't stop now while you are on a roll. Tell us just how much you love a secret police to arrest enemies of the state?

                  Seriously you need to brush up on some history:https://military.wikia.org/wiki/Nati...le_Association

                  Comparing the little Soda Tyrant to an organization steeped in tradition is absurd.
                  1. Your know, and stick with me on this, MAYBE those politicians who accepted those campaign contributions ran on those as part of their platforms and that is how they voted once they got elected/reelected. Just like the Republicans who ran against those views and lost the election.

                  2. I am well aware of the NRA and what is does. I joined in the 1970s when I was dating the daughter of one of the vice presidents. Was a member until LaPierre and crew wrecked it.

                  • I agree Wayne needs to go! I knew something smelled of an unhosed (Dirty) work boat when Oliver North left.
                    I remain a life member, but I love mailing in those self addressed postage paid envelopes back to them telling them the need to send Wayne packing! Just like in politics, some get way to comfortable in their positions.

                      Sir,
                      The Darwin Awad is for people who improve the gene pool by removing themselves from it in the stupidest, most easily avoidable way. Volume has nothing to do with it, just a lack of common sense.

                      For example, building and dying in a jet-powered car, when the awardee hasn’t a clue what happens to auto brakes when they are applied strongly at hundreds of miles an hour, or what happens when said automobile is applied to an immovable object (cliff face) when the brakes melt away.

                        "I am certainly not an advocate for frequent and untried changes in laws and constitutions. I think moderate imperfections had better be borne with; because, when once known, we accommodate ourselves to them, and find practical means of correcting their ill effects. But I know also, that laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths disclosed, and manners and opinions change with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also, and keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy, as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors."

                                We can start with that phony Emoluments Clause. "Emoluments" You ever hear of the word? Nobody ever heard of it before.
