Donald Trump is about to give a provocative speech in Waco, Texas, on Saturday night, around the anniversary of the right wing tragedy of thirty years ago, when federal agents engaged with the followers of the lunatic David Koresh and his Branch Davidian Cult.
This tragic event in 1993 led to right wing extremist Timothy McVeigh to plot to blow up the Oklahoma City federal building in 1995.
Waco is a touchstone for the Far Right, and portends the promotion of violence by groups like the Proud Boys and the Oathkeepers.
Conspiracy theorists, and those who preach that Donald Trump is the word of God coming to save the nation and its future, causes great concern about security and safety.
The incitement of violence and bloodshed by Trump is, sadly, a sign of further troubles ahead, and the speech should be canceled as a “Clear and Present Danger”, under the Schenck V US case of 1919.
Merrick Garland is the right person to be Attorney General of the United States in these difficult times legally, due to the disaster of Donald Trump.
Denied a hearing for the Supreme Court in 2016, after his nomination by Barack Obama, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican Senate not willing even to meet with him for consideration for the position, Garland now comes on the scene and will do what is right regarding the many outrageous legal actions and maneuvers of the Trump Presidency, including the horrifying Capitol Insurrection on January 6, 2021.
After a long career of prosecutions, including the investigation and the prosecution of the Oklahoma City Bombers in 1995, and service as Chief Judge for the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit for 23 years, Garland will restore the good name of the Justice Department, and will remind us of morality and ethics in law enforcement.
Garland could end up as the most significant member of the Joe Biden Cabinet!
