The world we live in

Walking through the living room last night, I shot this.

A poll indicates that about 30 percent of Democrats think the U.S. presidential election was stolen. About 90 percent of Republicans concur. Why it’s not 100 percent is baffling. That other 10 percent must be those people we call RINOs.

Or maybe it’s just proof that a portion of any group are nincompoops.

That almost a third of Democrats are clear-headed is heartening. I wonder why they think that. I wonder where they get their news, clearly not CNN, The Washington Post or The New York Times, those running-dog lackeys of the DNC.

Speaking of running-dog lackeys, YouTube is now inserting a claim at the bottom of videos questioning the election results that The Associated Press has declared Sleepy Joe and Round-Heels Harris to be the winners, as if the news media make that call.

Never have, never will.

The Fat Lady has yet to sing, but she will in time, and we Trumpsters hope she croons a positive tune, putting the five-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee back into the Oval Office. I remain guardedly optimistic. You would hardly know about the legal cases currently in the pipeline if your news sources are the above-named running-dog lackeys.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a brilliant man, says it’s the first U.S. presidential theft since the White House was stolen from Andrew Jackson in 1824. I looked into that, but the system was very different in those days. It does appear that Jackson was blocked due to political hanky-panky. He went on to win, however, four years later.

Now where is that Fat Lady? Warming up stage-right?

Rudy Giuliani is still scribbling the opera.

With luck, it’ll be a blockbuster.

  1. I’m losing hope, but Trumpsters are not giving up yet. Looked up that fellow you recommended last week and came across some other videos. I was surprised that there wasn’t a warning on them as they were making fun of the left and doing a very good job of it.

        1. I think all certified have certified the totals, and Trump’s own election czar said this was the most secure election in history. He got fired for saying it, but that was expected. The electoral college will not go rouge, and the Supreme Court is not going to interfere. All other courts are throwing out lawsuits for lack of evidence. Lindsey Graham and John Cornyn have stated that Trump’s allegations lack proof and it’s time to move on. So, this little drama is over and done.

          Like

          1. In many cases, elections have to be certified before suits can begin. So the certification, by itself, isn’t particularly definitive. As for courts throwing out suits, most of those have been thrown out on either motions to dismiss (which says nothing about evidence) or lack of standing, which also says nothing about the quality of evidence. Motions to dismiss automatically assume that the allegations in the suit are correct, and the motions are done for legalistic reasons like lack of standing, improper jurisdiction, moot point (when events make the suits pointless), etc. So your points there are not correct.

            As for proof, time will tell. Matt Braynard has already provided hard evidence of votes by people who have moved, were dead, voted in other locations, etc. This is all now a matter of record. So whatever Cornyn and Graham have to say, it’s no longer correct.

            Personally, I believe it’s highly likely that Biden is seated, but in due course of time Trump will sufficiently prove that he legally won the election.

          1. I have mixed feelings. Yes, I believe that Trump would have clearly won a fair and transparent election. But (as usual) the misleadia have persuaded plenty of Americans that Biden won and that there’s nothing to question. Were Trump to prevail, I think that leftists would create violence in the streets, and the misleadia would back them. I’m not sure this would hurt the Republic less than simply letting Biden take office.

            All of this, of course, hinges heavily on the Georgia senate election. If the Republicans can hold the Senate, then we can probably overcome a Biden (or more likely, Harris) presidency. If not, then I fear for our form of government.

            We’re in something of a no-win situation. Trump prevails and we have endless violence. Biden prevails and we risk packing the Supreme Court, having DC and Puerto Rico declared states, a “Green New Deal” forced down our throats (to little effect on global warming), and other horrors.

            I’m less concerned about Biden raising taxes. We’ve borrowed too much and for too long. It’s high time we either shrink government (almost impossible) or pay the price and deal with it. Of course a tax increase will slow business and the economy, but we can’t live on borrowed dollars for ever.

            At this point there are almost no good options.

  2. Amigo, the fat lady sang a long time ago. There was no corruption in the way the voting was conducted. The current WH occupant just can’t accept that he lost and is throwing a fit in the courts, which is going nowhere. This is a good test of our democracy, though. So far, it has withstood it really well. Dear Leader’s frivolous legal shit-fit has hurt it some, but it will recover quickly once he is gone on Jan. 20, 2021. Meanwhile he and his crime family are enjoying a full-time golfing vacation on taxpayer expense.

Trump’s attorneys have nothing. Giuliani is leading the clown show and is embarassing himself. Trump only cares about staying in power any way possible, never mind that he lost fair and square. He is making baseless allegations that his followers repeat robotically. It’s shameful that this Kremlin tool is determined to destroy our democracy, but that’s what he is doing. But, please, if you have any specific proof that in some way the election was not on the level, get in touch with dear leader’s legal team, because they are still at ground zero.

              1. Republican-led Senate committees have concluded that there was Russian collusion, and so did all intelligence agencies of the U.S. government. Another fact, not belief. But Trump chose to believe Putin rather than his own government.

                Like

                1. John: not correct. No Russian collusion was proven, nor was there any real evidence for it. You are conflating “collusion” with the Russians’ attempts to interfere with the election, which was demonstrated. “Collusion” means they worked with Trump; “interference” means they worked on their own. So, no collusion occured. That said, the Russian efforts were so inept that no serious person thinks they affected the outcome of the election. I think it was demonstrated that the Russians (exactly which ones remain uncertain because the one Russian organization cited demanded their day in court, but Mueller managed to keep this from happening), but they spent something on the order of $100 thousand USD. Meanwhile, Clinton et al spent almost twice as much as Trump, nearly 2 billion dollars.

                  As for voter fraud, or at least law violations and irregularities, there’s plenty of evidence, that the mainstream misleadia are doing their best to ignore it, just as they ignored Hunter Biden’s laptop and its sordid contents. Giuliani & co have hundreds of sworn affidavits, which are real, genuine evidence. Also, you’ve probably not watched any of the hearings in Michigan or Pennsylvania, but I’ve seen part of these and the witness accounts suggest some pretty dirty dealing. Moreover, the Pennsylvania constitution prohibits mass, mail-in voting, despite the legislature having authorized it. The suit which contested the election on this basis was thrown out by the PA supreme court on the basis of the legal doctrine “laches,” which basically says the plaintiffs waited too long to sue. Yet when they tried to sue before the election, the plaintiffs were told they didn’t have standing until after the election. While it’s not clear whether the U.S. Supreme court can address this issue, it’s pretty clear that the PA election was held in violation of the PA constitution.

                  So yes. There’s plenty of evidence that the election was not conducted in a fair and legal manner. Whether there’s sufficient numerical evidence to overturn the elections or to require a re-vote remains to be seen. And no, we are far beyond anyone believing in the truth being able to call such allegations “baseless.” There’s plenty of base there.

    1. Hunter did not sign anything. The whole story was made up for an October surprise. As for dear leader’s crimes, we’ll see what happens after Jan. 20 when he loses his immunity to prosecution. We know he is an unindicted co-conspirator in one case at least. But I’m not even talking about the orange one’s crimes. He is just the worst president in history and mishandled everything from foreign policy to the pandemic. He gave the rich an unneeded tax break, which drove the deficit to new record levels. He imposed tariffs that American consumers are paying. He alienated our allies and befriended dictators. These are just a few f ups off the top of my head. There are many more I can recite if you wish.

      1. John: there are photos of Hunter’s signature on the work order floating around on the internet. And just to eliminate all doubt, when the story came public, Hunter’s attorney called the shop and asked for the laptop back. So yes, this was indeed Hunter’s laptop, and yes, he forgot (or decided not) to pick it up after it was repaired. Just because you haven’t sought out the facts doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

        And of course it was an “October surprise,” but that by itself has no bearing on whether the story is or isn’t true. All of the evidence I’ve seen suggests that Hunter is, at best, a blackmail liability to his father, and at worst, peddling influence and benefiting his father too.

        As for Trump’s so-called crimes, he has been the most-investigated public figure ever. Aside from a potential rape charge dating to the late ’90s, which on its surface looks suspicious, I’d like to know what exact crimes he’s potentially guilty of. Lots of people assert that he’s a criminal, but seem to be incapable of citing any specific examples.

        Providing them would give your assertions some credibility.

        1. Kim G, the Hunter laptop story was invented as an October surprise. Nobody but you and others loyal to the Orange Bunker Boy to the end believe it. There are crimes that are being investigated, and they will come out in due time. He would be better off taking Giuliani’s advice and granting his whole family blanket pardons. But that will only protect them from federal charges, not state charges. So, we’ll see what washes out once he vacates his throne. Meanwhile, happy conspiracy hunting.

If that’s what you believe, you really should look into it. There’s no doubt that the laptop exists, was Hunter’s, and that there’s lots of incriminating evidence on it.

We have many witnesses swearing under oath they saw crimes being committed in connection with voter fraud. As far as we know, not a single one has been interviewed by the DOJ. The Justice Department also hasn’t audited any voting machines or used their subpoena powers to determine the truth,” said Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani. “Nonetheless, we will continue our pursuit of the truth through the judicial system and state legislatures, and continue toward the Constitution’s mandate and ensuring that every legal vote is counted and every illegal vote is not. Again, with the greatest respect to the Attorney General, his opinion appears to be without any knowledge or investigation of the substantial irregularities and evidence of systemic fraud.”

  7. I don’t understand why everyone is so shocked about election manipulation. It’s been going on for as long as we’ve been a country.
    Trump would’ve been easily reelected had not the virus reared its ugly head. If those who say China delibertly caused the spread of this virus, one might even assume it was done to weaken Trump and strengthen their base of power in the world.

    Once this virus became a problem, there was no way Trump could get reelected.
    All this time and energy being wasted on claims of election fraud is just widening the chasm between our citizens. This is doing much more harm than good.

    State legislatures have been rigging elections for decades by Gerrymandering. It happened in Ohio less than ten years ago with Dennis Kuchinich. He was a rare breed of politician who never changed. He was such a fly in the ointment for both sides that they moved his district so far away he lost all his constituents.

    Trump was removed by outside forces and this “election fraud” is just another hyped up distraction created by those who we should really be worried about.

    The United States has morphed into weak, self-indulgent bureaucracy that is no longer a democracy. We are quickly becoming a former superpower. I see us morphing into a form of China’s government in the next 50 years.
