Donald Trump Will Be the Next President of the United States Whether He's Elected or Not

Here's the day-by-day timeline of events that will make it a reality

November 2020

The president’s lawyer creates a six-step plan for Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the election, called the Eastman Memo.

November 7, 2020

Joseph R. Biden is elected President of the United States.

Pence and enough Republicans decide against executing the Eastman coup d’etat.

Donald Trump’s team begins working to ensure it won’t happen again.

Jan 2021 — Oct 2022

With two-thirds of Republicans still believing the election was stolen, Donald Trump systematically purges the Republican party of anyone who didn’t back him in his coup attempt or publicly state that the 2020 election was stolen from him.

He also purges the ten Republican members of Congress who voted for his impeachment.

November 8, 2022

Republicans retake key governorships and the House because Democrats don’t bother to show up at the mid-term polls as always.

Republican state legislatures immediately start changing election laws:

  • Further gerrymandering districts

  • Making it harder for Democrat-likely voters to vote

  • Allowing Republican-held chambers to certify the election results instead of independent bodies

January 7, 2023

Donald Trump’s Facebook ban expires. Zuckerberg does the “right” thing (for shareholders) and re-instates the former POTUS, who immediately announces he’ll run for President in 2024.

Winter-Spring 2024

Donald Trump hosts huge, maskless rallies across the country while the Democrats still do most of theirs online.

One base gets fired up and ready for war.

March 5, 2024

Super Tuesday.

Donald Trump already has his Republican party nomination on lock and is cruising to an easy victory. All other candidates are simply angling for a seat at his table.

Summer 2024

Democrats once again block real contenders like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and put forward another corporate-captured middling candidate at their “Democratic” National Convention. It does not matter who they put forward because that person will not win.

Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination.

Fall 2024

The Dems run a Dem-standard campaign, filling their little bellies with stress, but hoping and believing (but not praying) the polls giving them a slight edge will actually prove true on election night.

November 5, 2024

Election Day.

Donald Trump loses the election by the narrowest of margins.

November 6, 2024

Donald Trump announces he won the election and calls his state attorneys general to throw out Democrat votes, find a few extra Republican votes, and pick sympathetic fake electors to certify the election in his favor.

Facebook does “the right thing” and re-bans Trump, swearing this time it’s for good.

December 16, 2024

The electors gather in their respective state capitals to vote for President and Vice President.

Several states have voted Democrat, but their Republican-held legislatures send bogus electors who swing the election to Trump.

January 6, 2025

The electoral votes are formally counted before a joint session of Congress.

The President of the Senate, Kamala Harris, faces the same choice faced by Mike Pence: Whether or not to throw out phony election results.

And she does.

Because they are.

January 7, 2025

Hundreds of thousands of Republicans flood into Washington with more anger and weaponry than last time.

Protests, demonstrations, and Antifa-versus-the-Tea-Party battles break out in major cities across the nation.

The economy spasms and the stock market freaks.

January 19, 2025

Joe Biden faces enormous pressure to call in the National Guard to quell the coup before he is no longer in charge of the military.

January 20, 2025

Inauguration Day.

Two presumptive presidents show up to be sworn in as the 47th President of a United States that hasn’t been so divided since the Civil War.

A call to action

This is what happens when you let a republic turn into a corporatist oligarchy instead of a real democracy.

It doesn’t matter who wins if you have a democracy because there are zero politicians.

Instead, both parties practice non-stop gerrymandering, partisan politics, insider trading, and dark money campaign finance — all for the benefit of private corporate interests, not widest-spread wellbeing.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it until the day I die:

Democracy is too precious a thing to entrust to politicians.

And there’s only one way out of this mess:

Stop voting for corporate-captured Democrats and Republicans and start voting with your dollars.

We’ve got twelve fiscal quarters to bankrupt the corporate powers who (s)elect the people who lead the United States of America.

Spread the word.
