This is a special episode of the Game Theory Today podcast focusing on the attempted overthrow of the United States government on January 6, 2021, a day that will go down in history beneath the attack on Ft. Sumter in the annals of American treachery. A conspiracy against democracy, having been fomented for years, resulted in a surprise attack against the United States Federal government, the first such assault to reach America’s capitol since 1812. Like when the assault on Sumter occurred, there was the assumption in the capital that both sides were merely Americans with strongly different feeling about the direction of democracy. But when the shots were fired, a disturbing reality was revealed where one side intended to end the rule of law at the point of a gun. Civilians in Charleston cheered. And insurrectionists consigned hundreds of thousands to their death to pursue a fever dream. It took four years of this nation’s worst internal strife to wrench back under control. The incomplete efforts to mediate that damage have haunted us to this day, and have been used as fodder for enemies foreign and domestic to attack America culturally and politically.

American Coup d’Etat

An historic second impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump reveals a conspiracy to overthrow the United States Government through the massacre of elected officials. President Biden pushes back diplomatically on Russia and China – hard. And the White House procures 200 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine for the American people.

What makes this all such a milestone is that Alex Jones, for years some illegitimate child of conservative movement, is now front and center in the fight to overthrow the U.S. government to keep the president with the full backing of the GOP in power. He used to be just some cable access lunatic. Fast forward to 2018, and Jones’ partner Jerome Corsi has a joint defense agreement with the Republican President of the United States. This year, on January 5, he’s rallying outside the Capitol saying that our democracy is illegitimate. He is key to the terrorist attack on January 6th coordinated with Trump campaign officials. Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley agree with Jones after the violent revolution has gone forward and failed. When combined with mainstream donors and state attorneys general, basically there isn’t a lick of difference between Alex Jones and Mitch McConnell.
