    If the same number of shooter as were gunning for JFK from the grassy knoll are gunning for Trump, he will be very safe indeed.
    Trump is a harder-to-miss target than JFK.

    Google can't find parlay as a webpage. Parley is an eco site. I'll stick to the sources I listed, thanks.
    The Reuter site has a fact check on the story, very detailed, which shows that it was a fake Parler account.
    We will soon find out if it is me that has been had, or the MSM shielding the story.

    Either it's going to be an interesting countdown to the 20th Jan, which clearly I don't think is going to happen.

    I'll come back and post on 20th so that everyone can throw pelters at me, so start saving your pelters up. :-)

    On the other hand, I don't think Trump would ride in an open-top convertible.

    The only bad thing which absolutely must not happen to Trump is assassination. It will turn him into a martyr.

    He must however be dragged through Congress and the courts to face any and all legitimate charges against him.
    Hear, hear! And after him, Johnson, Rees-Mogg, and Rutte. Ah, ça ira!

    Who are you, anyway, Medjool? Last time I was here, a couple of months ago, you hadn't appeared yet. Are you yet another Red Monkey Morph?

    A bit like diplomatic immunity or job protection when doing union work, etc.
    Just this year, a Merkin "diplomat"'s wife murdered an innocent English man through drunk driving. She got off scott free.

    Lovely, lovely diplomatic immunity.

    I say, string them up. Every single one.

    No evidence was cited that Anne Sacoolas, a former CIA employee, was drunk.
    Her 'diplomat' husband, another CIA employee, was working at a RAF base.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Harry_Dunn

    "On 9 February 2020, the Mail on Sunday disclosed that Sacoolas was previously
    involved in espionage with the US CIA.[56] Following the disclosure, which was
    subsequently confirmed by Sky News, and widely reported by other news outlets,
    Dunn's mother expressed her family's suspicions that the British government were
    not fully sharing their knowledge of Sacoolas's past role with them."

    "An agreement made in 1995 treated US staff at RAF Croughton and their families
    as part of the US embassy, granting them diplomatic immunity.[71] On 22 July 2020,
    the UK and US governments amended the arrangement to remove immunity from
    criminal prosecution for the family of US staff. Staff at RAF Croughton had already
    had immunity removed. This change was reported not to be retroactive."

    If Donald Trump were assassinated, then imagine how many of his faithful followers
    would make pilgrimages to the site of his 'martyrdom'.

    After German reunification, the BRD government prosecuted Erich Honecker for
    what he did as the leader of the DDR.
    Yes. So?

    Various elements of the nazi top were put on trial and punished as well. And I don’t disagree with that at all.

    What I am saying is that generally speaking putting politicians on trial for political matters isn’t good for the democracy of a country.

    A nasty case.
    And border-line abuse of diplomatic immunity.

    What should have happened is that a court case is held with US observers present. And if they concur that law was observed (that the case was proper, without political bias, objective, etc.) then the diplomat’s wife could have been found guilty.
    She then could do her sentence in a mutually agreed country.

    The system is in place to protect officials from being unjustly tried and bullied, not to allow them to get away with murder.

    Generally speaking, no. But inciting a murderous riot inside your own parliament - let's be honest, so close to an attempted coup as to make no difference - is not merely a political matter. It is treason.
