For the past several decades I have criticized Israel's many violations of common decency, notably the USS Liberty incident and the use of espionage to steal nuclear weapons technology. Thus when Trump initially was presented as a candidate, I disparaged him as a pupil of Roy Cohn who would favor Israel excessively while taking donations from Sheldon Adelson. But back in those days, when 8kun was still called 8ch, I noticed that some anti-Israel anons were holding out the hope that Trump had a secret "plan" to punish wrong-doers, but that he was "saving Israel for last." Call me foolish, but I felt hope that Israel's wrongdoings would be brought to light. I agree with at least one aspect of the 8kun consensus: I think Trump did not want to be president, and Trump was pushed to declare his candidacy by a faction of military personnel still loyal to the U.S. Constitution. I am trying to write from the standpoint of a Q skeptic, although the fact that I am bothering to take the issue seriously will brand me as a Q cargo-cultist in the eyes of many.
I truly don't know how to analyze Trump's failure to put down the George-Floyd-inspired riots in 2020. I presume that Trump feared to roll out the National Guard because Trump feared that the leftist lamestream lying-press would lambaste him as a "dictator." Sabrosky has a different analysis: Sabrosky believes Trump did not have enough generals on his side! Sabrosky and I agree on some criticisms, such as the charge that Trump was mostly disobeyed by the administration officials that were supposed to be following orders.
I am a long-time reader of 8kun, and of course 8kun is the home of "Q drops" and vague, ambiguous hints of a "plan." Anons on 8kun often exhort each other to "trust the plan." But was there ever any coherent plan? Is Trump really playing 4-dimensional chess, or is he just using that as an excuse to cover up his failures? I suppose the average 8kun-centric Q-supporter would argue that it does not matter whether Trump is stupid or smart -- the real movement to draft Trump originated in the loyal remnant of the US military. Thus the real "plan" is (some anons believe) in the hands of some shadowy team of ultra-elite NSA spooks, or some legendary unit such as "The Army of Northern Virginia," or some close personal friends of General Flynn, or the ghost of Smedley Butler, or Jesus Christ Himself. At this point, I suspect many Americans who desperately wanted to "trust the plan" in 2017 are so disappointed with Trump that they would only vote for him in 2024 because the only alterative would be the Child-Sniffer in Chief.
Regarding the George-Floyd-inspired riots of 2020, Sabrosky accused both Trump and the American people generally:
But then-President Trump failed us, and we failed America, both rejecting what Constitution, statutory law, precedent and common sense required of us for the maintenance of law and order. Trump had the Constitutional obligation to maintain what the Preamble to the Constitution calls “domestic tranquility.” He had the statutory authority in the Insurrection Act (1807) among other laws to do so. He knew (or his advisors should have known) the precedents set as recently as Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson to use Federal troops in domestic situations to enforce the law, when state and local authorities could or would not do so. And he had the power as commander-in-chief to use the armed forces, including Federalized state National Guards, to restore order when Democrat governors and mayors refused to do so.
Sabrosky has written a worthwhile piece that includes gems such as:
The Civil War not only ended slavery in the US and left a legacy of animosity that has not yet fully dissipated. It also began a process of change that moved the country away from that for which the Constitution – and therefore the system of courts, law and justice it had established – had been written. Although the issue is still debated, I understand that it spelled an end to the concept of a union of sovereign states which had been the foundation upon which the Constitution itself had been erected. The end of it all was among other things:
A strong central government with subordinate states rather than the reverse;
A democracy with universal suffrage for citizens (and in some areas, non-citizens) 18 years of age or older in place of a republic with limited male suffrage; and
A Federal judiciary with a panoply of what the Constitution called “inferior courts,” coupled with greatly expanded definitions of original jurisdiction and powers of judicial review, replacing a Federal judiciary with limited and specific powers of original jurisdiction, and a deep reluctance to employ those of judicial review.
The main piece is at:
Additionally, the main text has elicited some insightful and surprising comments, such as:
Little-known is that the USA 1789 Constitution actually makes the US Congress the highest power, with unlimited, unrestricted powers to impeach any and all federal judges including all 9 US Supreme Court Justices, merely for ‘lack of good behaviour’, such as arrogating powers and legislating from the bench … but this power is sorely neglected, the US having descending into effective judicial tyranny as some founding fathers themselves predicted. So with Roe v Wade, the judges who voted for it could have been impeached immediately, instead of waiting half a century to replace the judges.
Israel Shamir has pointed out on Unz that ‘rule by judges’ is a quite Jewish idea, with judges the branch of government intrinsically most oligarchic. Netanyahu is trying to fight this Soros-backed tyranny in Israel, Bibi trying to claw back power to Israel’s Knesset Parliament, Israel having it even worse given how judges there appoint their own successors.
Th[e] US judiciary is quite anti-white recently, but what is neglected in the narrative is that whites now suffer what blacks long underwent. Tho there was indeed a lot of black crime, in olden days there was often unconcern about which black was arrested, so some innocent black was railroaded, whilst criminal blacks were left on the street to escalate the black crime rate.
The hoax of USA ‘rule of law’ is a long running one, its machinery described in a FAQ ‘Frequently Asked Questions on US Judicial and Legal Corruption‘ by a former US Justice Dept employee, helping victims understand why they can’t get justice, why lawyers are so corrupt, etc.
Another comment reads:
...Jewish lawmakers used legal fig leafs to protect Jewish criminality all while arguing it was to protect blacks from supposedly racist laws. On the backs of black criminals, Jews (far more than blacks) most benefit and get off the hook due to liberal laws they pushed .

In today’s America, and in many other parts of the world, the process is the punishment. Selective prosecution is a major problem in this country.
The Military allowed our cities to burn in 2020.
The Military is now whining that not enough people are willing to join the military.
My response: If the military would have stopped the riots, shot about a thousand ( or 5 thousand) antifi, and BLM, recruitment would be through the roof.
If the "trust the plan" anons are correct, then some set of military or ex-military personnel had an actual plan. The Q-believers often repeat that "military is the only way," which could mean a lot of things. Like all Q slogans, it is sufficiently vague to evade my attempts at analysis. One pessimistic interpretation is that when Q was still posting, the military that had pushed Trump into power had some chance to secure the election, but that chance was fumbled.
Please note: I am not arguing that Q is to be trusted. I am not going to delve into the numerological speculations of the many anons who try to analyze Q's drops. Even if Q were a team of US military spooks valiantly striving to uphold the Constitution, I would still do my best to analyze as skeptically as I could.
