Aside from the Devil, Alex Jones went down to Georgia...


https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...cid=spartandhp

The GOP is now embracing a guy who not so long ago, was accusing a GOP President of being behing 9/11, back in the days when Jones was playing to the wackjob left as a leader of the Truther movement???
Have fun, GOP, when the Jones the rattlesnake will turn on you again...

I guess we're at another "Blame Canada" moment.

Toronto company finds itself at the centre of Trump's unfounded vote fraud allegations [cbc.ca]
Quote:
Dominion Voting Systems, an elections technology company founded in Toronto, is being targeted by U.S. President Donald Trump and his allies as they claim the recent presidential election results were rigged by the firm — claims the company says are entirely baseless.

No, seriously, the owners are known for hiring managers opposed to their political views. As a matter of fact they never consider a job candidates' politics before hiring them to manage what their media company tells the public. It was silly to think otherwise. Smartcooky has it right, after all

Fascinating.........so how do the directors of media companies determine the political views of all their thousands of different shareholders?

You don't actually know what a public company is, do you?

Bubba has admittedly come up with some hilarious moments in the past; but taking a propaganda statement that pro-Trump Sinclair forced all of its owned stations to air - a statement that was specifically complaining about and pledging to take a stand against supposed left-dominated media coverage - and saying "look this is what the scary lib MSM does", has to be the crown jewel thus far.

Trump can use the Sept 2018 executive order

I'll try to summarize.

If the President can demonstrate that the election (electronic voting machines) have been tampered with by a foreign country ... well, they can toss them.

The lawfully counted votes will count to law-makers and legislators. If they ignore the legal/lawful votes adjudicated by SCotUS, then, the House of Representatives will weigh in, or the Senate can, or (Sept 2018) the executive Branch can.

The Executive had the right, from the Civil War times, to deny any delegate entry to the capital city while the Electoral College is going on.

Those are 'blunt' powers ... but they exist. When we are speculating why the President is confidently Tweeting "we won big", it's worth knowing what laws are on the books. The Democratic Party will have a tough time calling it a "baseless conspiracy theory' when Amy and Liz have written a letter about it.
If it's a conspiracy theory, it's bipartisan one, and Amy & Liz are "in on it". So, scratch that easy dismissal debating point (from the easily unimpressed).
How dirty does Sidney Powell have to make Dominion in order to have them tossed ? The Sept 2018 Executive Order has an influence on defining the legal/lawful votes.

It's a stark choice - the mail-in ballots were a ****-show. An audit would be more thorough than a recount. How long will it take ? The Dec.8 deadline for approving Electoral College electors is approaching and there's a run-off in Georgia first week of January, so, there is time to have a whole new election - but they would have to start now, get an order and run in an election.


A fresh election might be attempted, but Joe Biden didn't run a campaign at all - just some Photo-Ops and tortured interviews. Trump would hold rally after rally. Who can repeat their record-breaking numbers ? I think the guy who can hold rallies will win - especially if he's the underdog and everything is riding on the outcome.

Tossing the votes being requested - will likely flip the State, otherwise, the SCotUS wouldn't be hearing it. So, right now, there's 6 or 7 States "in play".
We started with 50 Chess games in a tournament, there's 6 or 7 games still being played.

Stale-mate goes to the incumbent. Joe Biden needs to produce 270 Electoral College votes. He can't put the Presidency out of reach, until the allegations of fraud have been dealt with.

"Executive Order on Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election"
https://www.whitehouse.gov/president...ates-election/

"The assessment shall identify, to the maximum extent ascertainable, the nature of any foreign interference and any methods employed to execute it, the persons involved, and the foreign government or governments that authorized, directed, sponsored, or supported it."

"Heads of all relevant agencies shall transmit to the Director of National Intelligence any information relevant to the execution of the Director’s duties pursuant to this order, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law"


Sooooooo.... Bubba? Has Giuliani presented evidence it was Russia again or the evil foreign democrats? Is Trump going to apply sanctions against the evil foreign Democrats?

That means reading the actual law Bubba. Some anonymous idiot writing nonsense on Facebook, who missed the meaning of the words "foreign" and "sanctions" isn't the law, is it?

You are falling for your own BS Bubba. How is Dominion foreign?

"Giuliani told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs in an interview on Nov. 12. “Dominion is a Canadian company but all of its software is Smartmatic software.”

"Dominion, for one, is not a Canadian company. It has been majority owned since 2018 by Staple Street Capital, a New York private equity firm."

Oh ... Bubba. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Trump is ******* evil, dude. I think it's obvious that God wants Biden to win. Biden has 306! That's 36 electoral votes more than 270. Biden has got this! How do you explain that?

I suggest laughing. Trump has spent a week claiming the US Democrats stole the election.....so Bubba links us to an executive order about foreign interference allowing for economic sanctions.

I don't think Bubba understands what the word "foreign" means.

Just wanted to highlight this particular piece of ignorance.
It is estimated that Trump's rallies were directly responsible for some 30,000 new Covid cases, and around 700 deaths.
Given that his handling of the pandemic has been one of the key points of the election, I would have thought it the height of folly to double down on the superspreader events.
Now, we are talking about Trump here, so the height of folly is pretty much his stock in trade, but I do wonder if Bubba's anonymous FB sources have thought this through. When (not if: when) more people become ill, and more actually die, as a direct result of Trump's actions, do they really believe that this will result in more votes for him?

All Trump has to do is prove that the Canadian government pulled the strings on the American election. Tell him to drop that McMuffin and get to work! Should be a breeze with Rudy helping out.

Lol, they're such morons.

Giuliani and Ellis will have a press conference on CSPAN at noon EST today covering the legal challenges and Trump’s path to victory.

I expect this to involve some really sketchy legal theories.

I don't know what but I know when. He and Jenna Ellis are supposed to have a press conference today at the RNC at noon Eastern time.

'Course, if Borat's daughter was too old for Rudy at age 15, I hate to think what he might try with Jenna Ellis, who is considerably older than that ...

This isn't WWE. The Champion doesn't get to keep the belt because he found himself losing so he intentionally DQed himself because the belt can't change hands on a countout or DQ victory.

Seen the replay... it was hilarious. So long as Rudy doesn't find himself being prosecuted after Trump leaves office, he really does have a future as a straight man to a comic.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...ce-on-thursday

Best response came from Josh Shapiro, the Pennsylvania Attorney General

Quote:
In case that thought pops in your head this morning, the answer is:

No, Rudy is not smarter than folks give him credit for. He doesn’t have a legal strategy and he has no facts to fit his client’s false narrative about election fraud.

Now carry on with your day. We got this.

How true !

...and its just more proof that owners dont care what their employees tell their audience. Be wise like Smartcooky, pay no mind to the politics of the owners.

The ironic thing here is that we're being silly, but if it was a person who wasn't on Team Trump, this is exactly what a substantial portion of QAnon would be posting to each other right now.

I am wondering if Giuliani has early dementia. He accused Biden of having dementia and tweeted images of himself reading a DSM5 manual. Why did he have that manual in the first place? Some of Giuliani's behaviour has been very odd recently and his court appearances suggest confusion .

If you "have" something, you take to court, not to a half-assed presser featuring lunatic Ghooliani*. Oh, that's right, they lose in court.

Well, the Georgia recount result is in and amazingly the result shows that it was actually a win for Donald J Trump!

Ha ha! Just kidding! Biden won, of course.
