Skip to comments.Hellscape 2021: Why a Second Loss to Trump Could Produce an Existential Crisis for Democrats
Posted on 03/25/2019 12:55:59 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Now that it appears Donald Trump may escape any immediate legal consequences from the Mueller investigation, its time to take a fresh look at the trajectory of his presidency.
Before November 2016, there wasnt a lot of agonized writing from the left of center about the consequences of a Trump victory, for the obvious reason that few observers thought it was a plausible scenario, even after his improbable Republican nomination. Yes, Hillary Clintons camp and progressive (and many conservative) journalists bashed Trumps character, worldview, and sinister appeals to racism and sexism regularly. But nobody saw much of a need for game-planning his administration in any detail.
We certainly know It Can Indeed Happen Here, and those who assumed Mueller would bring Trump down prematurely should check their premises. Its time as to consider what a second Trump term might be like. Here are some educated guesses of what it could entail:
1. The Courts Shift Radically to the Right
Trump has already had a profound effect on the present and future shape of the federal judiciary which in turn shapes constitutional, statutory, and common law thanks to a highly ideological judicial vetting and selection process and the willingness of a Republican-controlled Senate to rubber-stamp most nominees. Bloomberg Law notes the scorecard:
President Donald Trump has filled 20 percent of the nations federal appeals seats in his swift bid to reshape the judiciary with strong conservatives, and the emphasis could soon shift to accelerating district court confirmations.
Trump has appointed about twice as many appeals court judges as either of his two predecessors did at a similar point in their presidencies. Hes benefited from changes in the process that speed confirmations....

Yes, still doing it obviously even in this article. They can't help themselves.
Why don’t they try another rape hoax, maybe that will work for them.
"#MuellersReport did NOT investigate bigotry emanating from the Presidency harming our country. The findings do NOT negate the Presidents bigotry," Green tweeted Sunday evening. "As long as bigotry influences the Presidents policies, I will continue to seek his impeachment."
beat it, al
2020 is going to be hard. With the economy etc. humming along, reelection should be a cinch, but I’m expecting massive voter fraud by the Dems in key states. Trump had the element of surprise in ‘16. They badly underestimated him. That won’t happen again. They’ll pull out all the stops this time.
Kilgore is so full of crap that a truckload of Ex-Lax wouldn’t make a dent in his load.
Half the stuff he talks about leaves out any context that Trump and the Republicans were only USING tactics that the Democrats insisted be used for legislation and nominees (Garland nomination hold was a Democrat created tactic).
Not all Trump appointments are lobbyists. Others are professional veterans in their areas of expertise.
Trump isn’t about to go out and willy-nilly start wars but he will take action where he feels it is in the best interest of the US unlike Obama who took no real action for anything in the best interest of the U.S. which he hated.
Anti-poverty funding will be cut or eliminated - Hell’s bells, Trumps economic policies are creating jobs which go to the unemployed, new high school and college graduates, and others reentering the workforce.
THIS REDUCES THE NEED OF MANY FOR SUCH PROGRAMS, something Democrats/Liberals/Marxist/socialists never look at or even acknowledge is a cause for the rise out of poverty for many, and a corresponding reduction in “anti-poverty” programs.
Logic is not Kilgore’s mental strength. Neither is common sense. The poor guy, like Bernie and Beetlejuice and Occasionally Conscious Cortex, needs a major reality check, and soon.
Couldn’t stomach another piece of crappy writing like this article.
Massive voter fraud in all states that have large SocDem controlled cities. SocDem experimentation in 2016 and 18 proved to them that there is no penalty for such fraud and that no votes will be thrown out. All the phoney votes will be counted as if they were good votes even in the cities that will produce votes far in excess of possible voters.
Too much vote fraud (that we can't seem to even expose, much less stop), and too many states lost GOP Congressmen in high tax states because of the tax bill's capping and limiting of deductions.
The 2020 election the Democrats will stop at nothing short of having Trump 6 feet under
“Trump has appointed about twice as many appeals court judges as either of his two predecessors did at a similar point in their presidencies. Hes benefited from changes in the process that speed confirmations...”
THANK YOU SHORT SIGHTED DEMORATS. Laughing all the way to the Bank!
Says the bigot.
Indeed. I know that Trump is a racist sexist would-be dictator only because the media keeps repeating it. Certainly, I have never seen the evidence in the President's tweets, speeches, or pressers. The media is, as Goebbels said, repeating the lie over and over to make people accept it as true. I only hope that the voices of reason are able to prevail.
Who is Kilgore? A trained monkey hitting a keyboard?
I fervently hope every single thing they project as a nightmare comes to pass - and more.
Let me add:
Trump replaces more than one of the Gang of Four on the Supreme Court
Trump flips one or two Circuit Courts to a strict Constructionist majority....INCLUDING THE 9TH!!!!!!
Gun Hrabbing states are FORCED to respect Americans constitutional right to KEEP and BEAR arms by successive Supreme Court rulings that strike down their unconstitutional infringements on the 2nd Amendment.
America achieves complete energy independence (or nearly so with the balance easily met by Canada and Mexico) due to the Gaia Worshipers being checked
The Wall gets built and the border defended
Now Energy Independent, America shuts down many foreign bases, withdraws from NATO, brings the boys home and tells leeches around the world that theyll have to start paying for their own defense.
Tariffs either rein in Chinas unfair trade practices or simply severely prune imports from China resulting in a continuing restoration of the manufacturing sector in America.
Commiefornia, Illinois, New Jersey and New York are given NO FEDERAL BAILOUT when they inevitably go bankrupt.
