* Pentagon keeps Bremerton-based USS Nimitz in Middle East,
* Amazon surpasses Boeing as state’s biggest employer,
* Is Trump flying to his Scotland resort Jan 19?

In a recorded phone call obtained by The Washington Post, President Trump pressured Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” votes to reverse his loss.

Ed. Note: “Donald Trump could flee to Scotland in bid to avoid Joe Biden’s inauguration,” according to one of Scotland’s leading newspaper.

The National, a prominent newspaper of Scotland, reported yesterday that,”Prestwick has been told to expect the arrival of a US military aircraft the day before Joe Biden’s inauguration [Jan 19th].” Why is that important? Prestwick is the closest airport to Trump’s Turnberry Resort, 20 miles away. The US military Boeing 757 aircraft making the trip is occasionally used by Trump [primarily domestically for short trips], though usually by Vice-President Pence, or often used by the First Lady.

“Presidential flights tend to get booked far in advance, because of the work that has to be done around it,” quoting The National.

From Yelm’s blogger: In my opinion, if Trump was still President on January 19, the Secret Service would insist he use the Presidential 747 when/if traveling trans-oceanic. Therefore, I conjecture that one plan may be that Trump will resign and have Pence pardon him. Then, he will leave the country on the smaller 757 aircraft not used for Presidential foreign flights, to be on foreign soil when Biden is sworn-in as President on the 20th. Then when Trump is subpoenaed to testify in depositions and/or before a Grand Jury for his many legal cases that will soon follow, he will not show up and dare the UK to extradite him to the U. S., which I am certain they will be loathe to do. Read more

  2. I like the blogger’s conjecture that Mr. Trump may seek a pardon from Pence. Trump has been likened unto General Patton. I see Trump to be more of a General Sherman with his scorched earth policy destroying our Republic as he shamefully exists.
