That said, this election is going to usher in landmark changes to the American political and social landscape. If Trump wins, expect to see an authoritarian government with no guard rails with an irrelevant House and Congress. In essence it will be a Duma.

If Biden wins, these will be an uptick in domestic terrorism. It will not be small armies of right wing militias roaming the streets as some here think.
It could however be an increase in bombings and assassinations of media and political figures (by the right).

But what i do see happening is the breakdown of the traditional two party system. The GOP might well fragment into a centralist Conservative party and a far right Tea Party. Over a longer period of time, the Democratic Party
may well split into Center Left Liberals and further left Social Democrats (progressives).
I agree totally if Trump wins it is goodnight, and that includes here in HK (contrary to what many think here, having been seduced by the US right wing courting of HK protests as useful propaganda for their own ends). Agree also that if Biden wins the problems will be multiple, violent and hard to predict. Ultimately IMO democracy centres on the rule of law and the tacit consent that everyone from the president down gives to abiding by it. Having repeatedly and unashamedly decided that laws are advisory for the ruling elite and can be broken with impunity by Trump, the GOP and his enablers surely the only way to restore democracy and the rule of law is to prosecute each and every single crime that has been committed. By all of them. Trump is cascading lawlessness down to the people who are enthusiastically embracing it; Biden must embrace rule of law for the Trump regime with zero quarter given.

I believe that has been dismissed as an urban myth.

i don’t see Russia.

I believe the current bolthole of choice for former heads of state in fear of arrest is the UAE. However despite there being no extradition treaty between the UAE and the US, the US does have leverage in respect of arms deals. So perhaps the UAE is out as well.

Please let it end up being North Korea.

I wonder what him and his son in law have promised these gulf states in return for normalising relations with Israel? I mean these countries ain't short of a bob or two so can't be bought off, they are too important re oil for their security to be compromised, America is running to their aid if they get into trouble no matter what, so what do they gain? Possibly Netanyahu is open to Palestinian concessions but that would be out of character and they'd want more than just a "maybe".

I wonder if he knows he's out next year so is making a lot of crazy promises that Biden will inherit.

The thing that scares the Gulf oil states the most is the green new deal.
