Stochastic terrorist, Donald Trump, says "we'll have to see" if plot to kidnap and execute...

Governor Whitmer was "a problem".

President Donald Trump repeatedly attacked Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, during his rally in Lansing, Michigan, on Tuesday, at one point taking credit for the FBI thwarting a plot to kidnap her and then immediately downplaying the actual threat that had been posed to Whitmer.


"Hey, hey, hey hey," he told the audience, "I'm the one, it was our people that helped her out with her problem."

"I mean, we'll have to see if it's a problem. Right? People are entitled to say maybe it was a problem, maybe it wasn't," he added. "It was our people -- my people, our people that helped her out. And then she blamed me for it. She blamed me and it was our people that helped her. I don't get it. How did you put her there?"


The FBI revealed in early October it had uncovered an extremist group's plot to kidnap Whitmer at the Michigan state Capitol. The alleged domestic terrorism scheme included plans to overthrow several state governments that the suspects "believe are violating the US Constitution," including the government of Michigan and Whitmer, according to a federal criminal complaint.


If that piece of shit steals 4 more years, I have little doubt that we'll see Trump brownshirts - loosely organized paramilitary forces - engaging in intimidation, beatings, and assassinations of his opponents.

Keith Jarrett Confronts a Future Without the Piano - NYT 10/21/20

The pathbreaking musician reveals the health issues that make it unlikely he will ever again perform in public.


...this month Mr. Jarrett, 75, broke the silence, plainly stating what happened to him: a stroke in late February 2018, followed by another one that May. It is unlikely he will ever perform in public again.

I was paralyzed, he told The New York Times, speaking by phone from his home in northwest New Jersey. My left side is still partially paralyzed. Im able to try to walk with a cane, but it took a long time for that, took a year or more. And Im not getting around this house at all, really.


Right now, I cant even talk about this, he said when the issue came up, and laughed his deflective laugh. Thats what I feel about it.


I can only play with my right hand, and its not convincing me anymore, Mr. Jarrett said. I even have dreams where I am as messed up as I really am so Ive found myself trying to play in my dreams, but its just like real life.

As a musician, I can say that this has got to be horrible for him...having his ability to play taken away.
