Almost fits the MO. While having armed forces suppressing the people 'for their own good' sounds catchy, it's divide and conquer.
The last 9 mouths and rigged election is a big rub.
They want chaos and confusion so they are the ones standing with the solutions. As people flock to that.
This may be the gate to where no one will own any property, or guns, or freedom of speech.
Biden called it a dark winter because everyone is in the dark.
So their plan is to cause civil instability, or continue to capitalize on what is happening.
President Trump has been played, or is an active agent, with fast tracking these vaccines. They'll stick the side effects on him and all the messy effects on his presidency.
Those (political activists) opposing Trump are unsympathetic, and will not give any ground for reason.
Many ways this could turn out that is suitable for them.
Their average time span is within months, for fast acting means it's within weeks. If it's an emergency for them they act on it as soon a possible, I'd guess within the hour.
They have the resources to go for long term plans, for a goal that spans for a long time many multiple generations.
So to derail these plots... the solution is to be the paragon of order with back up plans and a direct style chain of command. This is based on a vison per say, or a sleep deprived mind either works. Pegasi stuck in a tornado, one (which would be you maybe) sees that glimmer of light and flies towards it. All the while others bumo and oush and flail. Then someone supports you, and you both reach for that highest point. Then more join in, and others try to drag you back into the tornado hell. You keep flying it's hard and grueling, but it gets easier. You reach the light, an orb or crown of somekind. Still you know if you stopped you'll all be sucked back to where you were before. Your second in command the one behind you from the beginning says everything is clear. You keep going to the cloud to ensure the tornado is truely stopped. As you land your hooves on it the orb hat crown thing lands on your head as you look back to peaceful happy ponies. The tornado is no more.
The dream thingy had it so eyes were almost always on the 'prize' at all times. A few distractions at first, and some later but the goal remains the same. For a moment only, as all focus is on the end goal.
The hardest part maybe is to continue going above and beyond. From the very beginning to the end, despite the attacks and setbacks.
Maybe it's seeing that small window of opportunity in the thick of everything.
Maybe it's the self doubt if anyone else would come.
Maybe it's seeing blue skys all around, yet the pulling continues after reaching the light that guided you all out.
Maybe it'll be going further beyond that as well.
Keep eyes peeled for that moment between the chaos and confusion. You probably will recieve many lumps at the beginning and in the midst of the tornado. So will those helping or simply those holding on, that single steady strand pulls apart the tornado of confusion.
All that is left is clear skys and everything laid bare.
