Joe Biden and the Democrats truly take the cake.
Biden is down in the polls to former President Donald Trump, who is the leading GOP candidate. So they’re doing all they can to play up the “threat to democracy” from Trump. Now I have no doubt whoever was leading would immediately become “Hitler” to them, because that’s how they do things. That’s their only play, given Biden has such a horrible record. He has no real accomplishments on which to run.
According to an NBC report, the powers that be are already trying to work to put Trump in check. People talk about the deep state. Check out what they’re saying here, it’s something else. They’re worried that Trump may win so the unelected people want to thwart how the elected representative of the people might exercise his power.
Now, bracing for Trump’s potential return, a loose-knit network of public interest groups and lawmakers is quietly devising plans to try to foil any efforts to expand presidential power, which could include pressuring the military to cater to his political needs.
Those taking part in the effort told NBC News they are studying Trump’s past actions and 2024 policy positions so that they will be ready if he wins in November. That involves preparing to take legal action and send letters to Trump appointees spelling out consequences they’d face if they undermine constitutional norms.
“We’re already starting to put together a team to think through the most damaging types of things that he [Trump] might do so that we’re ready to bring lawsuits if we have to,” said Mary McCord, executive director of the Institution for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection at Georgetown Law.
The post on X about the story has more than 2 million views, far more than a normal NBC post, because many were very concerned about what the article was revealing.

The president is the commander-in-chief. If unelected people start trying to dictate/interfere in that power, you may have a problem.
But don’t worry, there’s no such thing as the Deep State…… https://t.co/VJXN0YBsSw

Usually they would wait until after he left office to admit they were doing this.

Say, these same 'public interest groups', private individuals, NGO's, and lawmakers wouldn't happen to be many of the same people who were lauded and applauded in this glowing Time Magazine piece back in 2021 for "successfully managing a 'shadow campaign' to 'fortify' the 2020… https://t.co/b7LLpxFoQl pic.twitter.com/qeY7z16QIT

Can we say how important it is to stop the nonsense now, with this election?
