America is in a pretty unique constitutional situation at present. However it turns out, whoever occupies the White House, I just can't see anything going back to something resembling normal. Nor should it. To complicate matters, the crisis will be deepened by challenges to the Dem narrative of a new normal--which increasingly looks like the bad old normal of the Carter years, but worsened by an out of control and divided Left.
The Covid Regime will be increasingly challenged in the coming months. The CDC is now openly admitting that the gene therapy injections have only a very limited period of effectiveness. This is confirmed from the Israeli data, where the government is warning of "mortal danger" to induce people to get "boosted" after only 5 months. Serious "breakthrough" cases in Israel--cases of infection by new variants after the gene therapy has lost protective strength--are multiplying rapidly and are a clear majority of cases. How long will it be before the general public tumbles to the reality of ADE--that it's the gene therapies that are inducing the new variants and leaving the vaxxed with less protection. People will realize that sooner rather than later. There will be a lot of unhappy people.
Here in the US, the narrative or rareness is being challenged on multiple fronts.
In LA we're learning that no less than 30% of new cases--mostly the Dread Delta--are "breakthrough" cases, and the trend of breakthrough cases--months before the boost will be available--is steeply upward. 30% and climbing just isn't rare, even if we concede that rarity is a relative concept. People will understand this, and will resent the lies that they bought into. Trust is being eroded.
Also, slowly but surely, word is getting out about side effects. In this WaPo tweet we see another relative concept substituting for "rare": "uncommon." Don't worry about the inevitable attempts to shape the narrative; just realize that this is coming out in the super mainstream Bezos Post:
U.S. officials are reviewing the possibility that the Moderna coronavirus vaccine is linked to a higher risk of myocarditis in younger adults than previously thought, according to two people who emphasized the side effect still probably remains uncommon https://t.co/7qL19rE9t1— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) August 20, 2021
“There might be a 2.5 times higher incidence of myocarditis in those who get the Moderna vaccine compared with Pfizer's vaccine.” Any risk at all for young people under 17 is unacceptable https://t.co/vz1REfaaj8— Sue Cook (@SueC00K) August 20, 2021
This is coming on top of a big push to inject young people, as well as the ongoing uproar over government schools generally--the Covid masking regime, the probability of continued shutdowns, and the CRT controversies.
Put all that into the general mix, which also includes accelerating inflation, continued sky high crime numbers, and a border crisis that can no longer be kept secret. Any one of those taken singly would be a regime crisis. Taken together and joined to the Covid crisis in all its multifarious ramifications and I believe a crisis in trust in our establishment generally is at hand--but focused specifically, as it must be, on the Left that its doubling down on the policies that gave us all this.
And now we have a regime and a White House occupant that is being revealed not only to the American public but to the world as a bad joke, a hoax president who is an object of derision. One way or another I suspect we will see regime change coming to DC. This, in my mind, goes beyond impeachment. It's a regime collapse and a scramble to shore up the entire establishment that foisted this illegitimate regime on the nation. This morning I saw polling numbers stating that fully 17% of Biden voters say they wouldn't have voted for him had they known what the MSM hid from them. And now with the Afghan debacle ... In the best of times recovery of credibility after that screw up would be a Herculean task, but these are far from being the best of times.
Even if Zhou is allowed to continue living in the White House (which he has once again abandoned in the midst of this crisis), regime change will have to occur--someone will need to be held accountable. Major figures in the National Security apparatus will need to be sacrificed. If not, all trust will be lost and the regime will spiral downward--there can be no prospect of regaining its footing.
If Zhou is shown the door--whether by resignation or the 25th Amendment--the crisis will still continue, for several reasons. The Left has attempted to rule by steamrolling and demonizing all dissent. Now they will need cooperation from the Right. Whether or not the GOP is able to present a united front, the calls for a change of course will grow and will need to be somehow satisfied. Again, I doubt this can happen quickly.
The wild card in all this, of course, is Kama Sutra. The Dems know they have a disaster on their hands. But for that realization it's conceivable that Zhou would already have been shown the door--what with multiple MSM regime stalwarts (NYT, The Atlantic, etc.) savaging him. Formation of a new administration will be a prolonged and difficult process, and such an administration would have just about zero political capital and would be widely regarded as illegitimate. One misstep--which is inevitable with Kama Sutra--and you're into constitutional crisis territory again.
It's even conceivable that we will see the idea of a national unity government floated, given the very evenly divided Congress. VP DeSantis, anyone? I don't personally favor that approach by the GOP, but I toss that out to illustrate that virtually no eventuality can be totally discounted.
UPDATE: Speaking of things like coups, legitimacy, and credibility, who thinks the military would be in a position now to be a national savior? At any level of influence? Their full on embrace of the furthest reaches of the sexual revolution shot their credibility, and now they've forfeited any claims to competence. Look for more revelations of malfeasance and corruption. Their further embrace of the coup against Trump--thus, their endorsement of the coup and current occupant of the White House--undermines their influence as well.
