So is this possible

How many of you think Trump will be reinstated before the end of this month.

How to create a poll on your thread topic:


You may notice that some threads on this forum also include a section where you can vote on an issue or question. These threads are called 'polls' and this is how to create them:

Quote:
Creating a new poll

When you post a new thread, you may have the option to also create a poll.

This function allows you to ask a question and specify a number of possible responses. Other members will then be able to vote for the response they wish, and the results of the voting will be displayed in the thread.

An example poll might be:

What is your favorite color?

Red
Blue
Yellow
Green
Sky-blue pink with yellow spots
To create a poll when you post a new thread, simply click the 'Yes! post a poll' checkbox at the bottom of the page, and set the number of possible responses you want to include.

When you click the submit button, you will be taken to the poll creation page, where you can specify the question and the list of responses you want to include.

You may also want to specify a time limit for the poll, so that (for example) it only stays open for voting for a week.

He's far more likely to be indicted than "reinstated" as President.

Such a thing is impossible. The SCOTUS angle is not possible because A) SCOTUS is not in session until October and B) no suit has been presented that could get to the court. Trump cannot be reinstated because there is no constitutional way to invalidate an election in the US. Trump could run again in 2024, or he could become president in early 2023 if the GOP gets the house and a whopping double majority in the Senate and installs Trump as speaker of the house before impeaching Biden and Harris, which isn't going to happen.

So Trump cannot be president again unless he runs and wins in 2024.

Why do you think it's possible?

Who would reinstate him?

How would they do it?

You're all forgetting about the Secret Constitution that's been locked in a special underground vault beneath the National Archives Building since it was completed in 1935. Most people don't know about that.
Lots of people are saying that it allows an election to be overturned by a simple show of hands in an invitation-only session of Congress during a month starting with "A" during any year that ends with "1". Lots of people are saying it.

I know you're joking but, er... even if some of the similar claims by QAnals about this sort of stuff were true, it still wouldn't help them. Laws have to be recognised and acted upon to be real laws.

It's like Sovcits' yapping about the articles of Confederation as if they hadn't been superceded by the Constitution and subsequently ignored by every law agency and court in the country for 250 years.

not even if the Supreme Court voted 9-0.
There is scenario beyond a Civil War for Trump to become President again before 2025.

Well, there's the speaker-impeachment scenario, but the odds of getting a supermajority in the senate in 2022 are so remote that I wouldn't consider it. Idem for a military coup.

So there isn't even a dissent chance he'll be returning to the White House at all before 2025, let alone this month. Judging by his rate of cognitive decent, he may be signing legislation in crayon by then.

No I think anything but a 2024 win is extremely remote. And even so, considering the loss in 2020 I would bet against him if he runs then.

It's possible if aliens attack and destroy most of the world, and then Trump makes an inspirational speech and then pilots one of the last remaining fighter planes helping to accomplish the miraculous destruction of the entire alien fleet.

That's not very likely, though. It's more likely he'll get vaporized by the first blast from the ship over Mar-A-Lago because he won't evacuate because he'll insist the aliens are less dangerous than Mike Pence or the swimming pool contractor he owes money to.

I can see a dissenter under a dictatorship taking the stand at his show trial and denouncing the court and the government for being illegitimate. Even though he knows the bailiff will club him down before he finishes. Even though he knows his outburst will be suppressed and memory-holed. Even though he knows it will change nothing about the trial or his sentencing. It's just a futile, last-ditch effort to speak truth to power before the inevitable happens. Something a character in a Terry Gilliam dystopia would do.

What baffles me about the SovCits is their apparent conviction that telling the illegitimate court that they're illegitimate will actually prompt the court to desist. You're in the grips of the regime, man. Whose laws do you really think are going to prevail here? The laws that suit you? Or the laws that suit them?

Won't all foot soldiers be out on bail if not already in jail?
Seems unlikely an 'honest' attempt through the system and another insurrection certainly will be expected. Even if there are no outward signs to most of us.

Possible only in the sense that anything is possible.

Functionally zero actual people think this could realistically happen. Maybe like two or three nut jobs with no sense of how the planet works.

Bloody ninja‘d by a tangent. I feel so worthless now.

I must say, though, that the term SovCit reminds me of the same thing, as a former avid 2000AD fan.

Ain't gonna happen. Not today, not not this week or this month or this year. Not unless or until Trump runs for President in 2024.

My guess is that many of the CT believers will just shift focus to other Conspiracy mongers. They'll quietly shift away from Q/CodeMonkeyZ/Ron Watkins and Mike (Pillow Guy) Liddel and move on to other people spouting other made up dates with more excuses as those don't pan out either.

Not within the month, nor within this year. But within twelve months? Possible.


Although not the "reinstated" part. Because he might just become president of some Qanon-type club in jail or something? There'll be obliging rubes inside jail, just like there are obliging rubes on the outside, who might let him. And narcissist that he is, he'd love to call himself President again, no matter what kind. So, it's possible, what you propose, except over a somewhat more extended time frame.

If powerful, hostile aliens showed up, Trump would be the first to offer himself up as their lackey, and give up anyone he knows to seal the deal. He’d offer them his own children in a heartbeat.

They are genuinely that stupid. Some of them are dying right now in hospitals, as they beg for the vaccines they swore never to use.

What definition of the word "possible" is being used here?

More to the point: why?

Yeah, but the aliens wouldn't bother listening to him.

I think a more interesting question is, "how many months into the future will people keep asking if it's possible Trump will be reinstated by the end of the month?".

Two millennia from now, will there be people preaching about the imminent second coming of Trump? And if so, will they be called Melanialists?
