    There will be no coup. The generals will not follow suit with any orders from government bureaucrats to overthrow the the courts' decision. Esper left and these new chumps will get two months of salary before packing up their stuff again.

    This is the scary scenario, a "legal" coup.
    In this case, can't imagine how divided your nation will be and the long term consequences.

    They are. But the U.S has some of the strongest democratic institutions. Ultimately, you would need the backing of your troops to overthrow these institutions but the military is not going to back Donald "what's in it for them" Trump

    The Dems aren’t “ sounding the alarm” because they know after thousands of ballots gets thrown out, they lose anyway..

    Still a longshot. This would upend the democratic process and send the country until a constitutional crisis. In a nation where there are more guns than there are people, that is damn scary to think about.
    State legislatures are not going to follow suit with these orders to risk this kind of a scenario. Do it for who? Donald Trump?

    Barr's memo, the firing of Esper, the multiple lawsuits, the Four Seasons (chuckle), these are all a smoke and mirrors meant to give the Biden administration a bad start, and also to influence the Georgia Senate runoff election on January 5th. Those two Senate seats are crucial for Republicans.

    This is THE scenario for Trump and the Trumplets. Nobody with a functioning brain really believes that 10's of thousands of votes are going to be thrown out. They might get 100 votes here or there, but thats it.

    And they know that to. This is all about raising just enough doubt about the electoral process and then asking the state legislators to go the faithless elector route to combat the "fraud".

    Republicans know there was no widespread voter fraud. They are willing to do anything to hold on to power and "keep the dems out".

    I would not worry about that. The election was a good for Republicans not named Trump. He's toxic AF even within his own party. They just need his supporters for shore up Georgia and you'll see the whole political and bureaucratic apparatus turn on him.

    I really doubt that. They won't turn on Trump because that would mean angering his cult followership which at this point makes up a majority of the registered republican voters.
