[ Editor’s Note: The Trump glow is dulling as we move further past January 6, and the contrast between his administration and Biden’s widens by the week in terms of competence.
While Trump still has a large base of followers, the impression that he would like to have of all the state parties in his pocket is his attempting to spin something as a given, which these Wisconsin Republicans do not accept.
Mob boss Donald has been putting political ‘hit notices’ out on any Republican leader who will not lick his boots with enough gusto. The Wisconsin Repubs are focused more on their own fortunes than his.
They do not want to go down with the Trump ship, when they typically out performed him in their state races. The age old political saying of “all politics is local” seems to be alive.
As more Trump scandals are unveiled and the indictments and prosecutions begin, the shine will quickly dim on the orange buffoon. I predict that in the end he will be revealed as an empty hat, that full blood carnival barker that he is, and always wanted to be.
The momentum is reversing. The Arizona recount circus keeps dragging out, apparently due to not really finding enough to make a brouhaha over, and the grifters involved do not want the party to end. The Rudy suspension of his law license detailed the total fraud of the Big Steal. Other courts will be following suit.
The Georgia recount has been stopped by a Federal judge, and I suspect other attempts to keep the recount circus going will be stopped. This will kill Trump’s plan to keep the hype going on his being reinstated in August. The date will come quickly and turn out to be a nothing burger.
The New York State Rico case will trigger his banks calling in their loans, as they can not do business with a company under indictment. The Trump ship will be bankrupt with the banks taking over his properties. He might find himself looting his campaign funds to pay lawyers.
Trump’s first rally was a fizzler. Attempts by OAN and Fox News to keep him propped up will fizzle also, as even the Trump audience will get bored with the Donald as he sinks.
Trump replacements are already lining up to fill the void when Trump farts himself out of political relevance and existence. His people will then look for something else to latch onto, and a mob of Republican office seekers will be trying to lasso them, trying to be a smarter, slicker Trump… Jim W. Dean ]

But in a rare setback for his post-presidential interventions in the GOP, Trump in Wisconsin appeared to shoot a blank. When Vos and Devin LeMahieu, the state’s Senate majority leader, took the stage on Saturday in front of some of the party’s most fervent pro-Trump activists, it was as though Trump had said nothing at all.
There were no boos. Vos drew applause. Convention-goers dismissed an effort to censure him. Worse for him, despite the former president’s harsh personal criticism, there were signs his comments were dismissed with a roll of the eyes.
