Yesterday, as is often the case, I tweeted ironic comments to the Twitter sites of Herr Trump and Herr Pence.

In one, I mentioned that the Koch brothers, who head a conservative PAC, oppose the regime’s ban on Muslims. (Which is true.)

In another, I tweeted a response to Herr Trump’s call for a build-up of nuclear warheads. The U.S. has 6,800 and the Russians have 7,000. 54% of the U.S. budget is currently used for military expenditures. I tweeted something like: “How’d we fall behind? Cut all social programs and spent 100% on military.”

In response to the first tweet, many — over 11,000 — hits occurred, and these were from supporters of this regime. When I suggested that Koch be arrested for opposing Herr Trump, there was agreement.

In response to the second tweet, many — over 11,000 — hits occurred, and a few people with patriotic banners retweeted what was written.

I tweeted a third time: “Free speech gets in the way of patriotism.”

I tweeted a fourth time: “Arresting people opposed to Trump would speed up his program.”

Agreement, agreement.

I asked in a tweet: “What will happen when hundreds of thousands of Americans protest this summer and shut down streets and government?”

Answer: “I don’t think it will come to that. People are coming together.”

I tweeted: “But what if it does happen? Because it will.”

Answer: “I’m sure they (the government) are planning for every contingency.”

The regime knows that the only way that it is going to survive and control is to use military force to suppress dissent and resistance.

Here is Herr Trump, quoted in Playboy magazine in 1990, on the Pro-Democracy protests in 1989 in Tiananmen Square: “The Chinese government almost blew it. Then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength. That shows you the power of strength. Our country is right now perceived as weak.”

The one remaining question is: Will Herr Trump call out the troops to fire upon and arrest his fellow citizens?
