I got my inspiration from Palmer Report long before I started writing for them. Where do you get your inspiration from? If you are like many people, including myself you get it from many different places.

Inspiration can be gleaned from family, friends, ideas, and knowledge.
It can be received in the sweetest of ways, perhaps from watching colorful birds soar across the skies or losing oneself in the hypnotic crash of the sea-foam waves.

Where do you think Donald Trump gets his inspiration? I would say from dictators, megalomaniacs, and from traitors. From people like Adolph Hitler and Joseph Stalin, and Vladimir Putin. Those are the men from whom Trump — the insurrectionist — takes his ideas.

Far from being delusional, Trump knows what he is doing and revels in doing it. And Lawrence Tribe had some wise words when he said even if Trump were delusional, which he isn’t, “you can’t make up an alternative universe.”

In other words — Trump cannot at any time use as a legal defense “Well, I believed it was true.” I refer, of course, to the election of 2020, which was not stolen. Tribe, an expert on constitutional law, explained that just believing something is true does not exonerate one from committing a crime. Tribe explained there is a doctrine known as “willful ignorance.”

“You can’t simply make up an alternative universe, climb into it, and say I’m comfy there, and therefore that I’m immune to prosecution,” Tribe explained.
That’s not the way the law works,” he added.


The truth is this: There IS no defense to what Donald Trump did. The truth is Donald Trump took pleasure — unrestrained, bloody, loathsome pleasure in everything that happened that day. There is no defense for that. What Trump engaged in is sedition — American terrorism — cruelty — taken from the many pages of the monsters of evil he so admires.
