British Assets Run Secession Scenario ‘Wargame’ for U.S. 2020 Elections

Sept. 16, 2020 (EIRNS)—John Daniel Davidson, political editor of The Federalist, called attention on Sept. 11 to the scenario of an attempted breakup of the United States post-election leading to a military coup which was included in the 2020 election outcome wargames carried out by the so-called “Transition Integrity Project” last June. Sixty-seven top Establishment anti-Trump fanatics (Republican and Democrat) participated in those wargames; TIP co-founder Rosa Brooks first mooted the military coup option against Donald Trump after his first week in office.

The secession scenario wargame had been reported on Aug. 2 in a New York Times article by one Ben Smith on the backroom discussions and planning taking place among “mainstream” media and social media chiefs on how they should coordinate and manage the planned “election crisis” coup. According to Smith’s report, the scenario in question assumed a big popular vote win for Joe Biden, weeks of counting votes in one state afterwards, followed by a narrow defeat weeks later. And then:

“But Mr. [John] Podesta, playing Mr. Biden, shocked the organizers by saying he felt his party wouldn’t let him concede. Alleging voter suppression, he persuaded the governors of Wisconsin and Michigan to send pro-Biden electors to the Electoral College. In that scenario, California, Oregon, and Washington then threatened to secede from the United States if Mr. Trump took office as planned. The House named Mr. Biden president; the Senate and White House stuck with Mr. Trump. At that point in the scenario, the nation stopped looking to the media for cues, and waited to see what the military would do.”

Who is “reporter” Ben Smith? He joined the New York Times staff in 2020, after eight years serving as the founding editor-in-chief of BuzzFeed News, which published MI6 Christopher Steele’s infamous, lying dossier at the center of the Russiagate hoax.

Davidson does not identify the documented British Empire's hand behind both today’s discussion of splitting up the U.S. republic and the Confederacy’s war against the United States, but he does draw the parallel between the two:

“Whether they realize it or not, Podesta and Frum and the others are acting out a present-day version of the election of 1860, only they’re playing the role of the secessionist South. Indeed, well before Abraham Lincoln won the election, even moderate ‘unionist’ southern leaders warned that their states would secede if the vote didn’t go their way.... For slave states, the Union was conditional, not perpetual, and Lincoln’s election violated their conditions.”

Whereas then it was the slave states asserting the right of a minority to break up the government, today “it’s anti-Trump Democrats and left-wing radicals threatening to tear the country apart if Trump wins in November. For them, the Union is conditional, and Trump’s reelection will violate their conditions,” Davidson writes.
