This Guy Again?

Remember Mark Taylor? He's the self-proclaimed talk radio prophet who was railing against anti-Trump freemason 440 Hz DNA a little over a year ago. Because clearly, that mélange of popular Internet conspiracies posed a genuine threat to the Republic! More recently, he weighed in on the Brett Kavanaugh nomination with predictable coherence - that is, the complete lack thereof. Apparently, racehorses have been cluing him in on God's secret plan to execute Democrats. As a point, why all the subterfuge? Can't God just turn Democrats into pillars of salt or something and be done with it?

Mark Taylor, the so-called “firefighter prophet” and radical conspiracy theorist who is the subject of a new movie premiering this week, appeared on Chris McDonald’s “The Mc Files” program on Friday, where he again asserted that opposition to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is all about trying to prevent President Trump from establishing military tribunals in order to prosecute and execute Democratic leaders like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

“This has everything to do with military tribunals, them being charged with treason, and them going to prison for the rest of their lives and some being executed,” he said. Taylor claimed that God recently delivered a huge “prophetic sign” of this plan when a horse named after Obama had to be euthanized at the World Equestrian Games in North Carolina last month.

“God’s been speaking a lot to me through racehorses,” he said. “The racehorse named Barack Obama was euthanized. That is probably the biggest prophetic sign that you could have of God saying this man is going to go down. Period. That’s the bottom line. You can get mad at me all you want to, but God’s the messenger here, he is the one sending the message. People don’t think that this stuff is real or it’s going to happen. It’s going to happen.”

“This is real,” Taylor insisted. “Justice is not coming, it’s here, period, and it is taking place on the earth. This whole thing with Kavanaugh is trying to stop the military tribunals … This is all about rounding these people up, charging them with treason, and they know that, basically, their head is going to be in a noose, literally.”

The scary thing about all this is there is one sense in which it's true. Not the racehorse thing, of course, or the idea that Democrats are doing anything besides spending their time as the minority party learning to fight just like Republicans have been doing since at least the 1990s. But it's true in the sense that according to his writings, out of all Trump's potential nominees Brett Kavanaugh has the most expansive view of executive power.

So if Trump decided to round up Democrats and put them in front of military tribunals on trumped-up (see, I can play the name game too) treason charges, Kavanaugh would be one judge who would let him do it. Hopefully the only one, but as I see it why take a chance? This is America, not some banana republic, and Kavanaugh does not belong on our Supreme Court. This isn't about pushing for a liberal justice - we know we won't be getting that from Trump. But he has a whole list of conservatives who are a lot less dangerous.
