“If President Trump wouldn’t have tweeted out anything and would’ve stayed silent, we would’ve stayed silent as well,” Raffensperger said. “If you’re going to put out stuff that we don’t believe is true, then we will respond in kind.” 

“A day after the call, Trump said in a tweet that Raffensperger was “unwilling, or unable, to answer questions” about the president’s baseless claims of widespread fraud in the November election.”

Why aren’t Gohmert, Wood and Trump charged under insurrection laws?

Alice’s Tea Party has become infiltrated by at least 11 Stooges

There is not a shred of evidence of fraud. The best efforts of major law firms followed by loonies Powell, Wood and Giuliani could not convince 50+ courts that the evidence was even worthy. The Constitutional Hail Mary is not based on our Constitution, but rather legal pretzels that convince the ignorant and exploited by the right wing intelligentsia.

Gohmert tries again. I say he should succeed, just not this election.

Let the courts rule in favor of the VP picking presidents from 2024 onward. Makes sense. This is too close to this one for major changes in the law and Constitutional questions. Particularly since it should be appealed all the way to SCOTUS. And for those conservatives who balk, tell them they can keep the Electoral College.

Proud Boys’ planned tactics from the man himself.

I suspect than many, if not most, of the disruptions attributed to Antifa this year were really Trump supporters who want violence. This post is from the leader of the “stand back, stand by” troops for Trump. Violence and conspiracies pushed by the right are nothing new. The test of our nation is how we deal with this mess.

Maybe some good will evolve from this tragic death.

The man was 41 with a wife and two young children. A terrible tragedy to be sure. Yet the fact that he was well known in his district as a Republican Congressman-elect might shift the fence sitters about the efficacy of the vaccine and the real dangers of COVID for all Americans. And until we get the vaccine mass distributed, precautions are critical.

Remember the big show about taming Kim and N. Korea?

Seems like Dear Leader (the N. Korean one) is more powerful than ever since Trump met him to cut deals. Apparently the “Mutual Admiration Society” meeting was “fruitful” 😇. Like the trade wars. And our GDP, trade deficit, and manufacturing output before COVID, but after paying a trillion or so in deficits to pay for tax cuts. At least Ivanka got trademarks and Dad got Chinese investment monies. So there is that.
