What’s the Mechanism?

Sadly, lots of folks in Our Thing are as gullible as SJWs.  For instance, this is apparently making the rounds:

The President signed the [omnibus spending] bill because the military needed to be funded. They’re going to have some big jobs this year: war with Iran, rounding up most of the Obama administration to stand trial in front of military tribunals, and keeping domestic order when the roundup happens. The midterms are going to be utterly irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. That means the roundup will happen before then and the DNC will be struggling with things other than running for office.

OK: How?

Seriously: How is “the military” going to “round up” most of the Obama administration?  To stand trial for what, exactly?  To stand trial, even in front of a military tribunal (run by whom? doesn’t that entail martial law?), there needs to be a charge.  A real one, not “being a guy we don’t like.”

Even assuming all this is true — and it is, of course, horseshit — how, exactly, does all this happen in six months?  Walk me through the steps.  Do we declare martial law?  On what pretext?  And then what?  SEAL Team Six hits the DNC convention and frog marches Hillary off stage?

This is how you know you’re dealing with a fantasy.  The paperwork alone on this would take more than 6 months.

    Why? The democrats seem hellbent on impeaching Trump with that very charge, so why wouldn’t the other side decide it’s fair game?

    And so the tribal wars begin again.

    Is this what it is to grow old, Sev? To realize it’s all the f’ing same over and over again and nobody will learn?

    The “before the election” thing triggered me as well. This is no different than “Jesus is coming back on August 12/2019”. Now, frankly, I think a military coup is the only way to stop the slide to a socialist “utopia”, but I don’t believe there are enough citizens OR soldiers out there that will cooperate. And while there are some military leaders that can make things happen, they would spend so much time fighting among each other that they wouldn’t be able to focus on the gallows and gas ovens. Personally, I think the West is dead. But, that doesn’t mean there isn’t hope. I’m still an optimistic cynic at heart.

    “rounding up most of the Obama administration to stand trial in front of military tribunals, and keeping domestic order when the roundup happens.”
    – What the actual fornication, man? That’s a new one to hear, and I’ve hung out at conspiracy sites a lot.

    Forgive the lateness but I was updating my quotebook and had this, which I apparently pulled out of a tweet thread:

    “One way to tell that something is a conspiracy theory is that most people are too embarrassed to tell you what the theory actually is. They’re always sort of dancing around the margins of it, ‘connecting dots,’ never giving you the full narrative.”

    Robert Waugas, I think the name is. I must have been in a hurry jotting that one down.
