    I thought this was a good take on the whole debacle.

    Journalist Maggie Serota commented: “I will watch an 11-part Ken Burns documentary on the Four Seasons Landscaping story.”

    The press conference was also notable for Giuliani, describing forthcoming legal challenges to the result, being told by a reporter that Joe Biden had just been declared the winner of the election.

    His response: “Don’t be ridiculous.”

    No shit sherlock.
    Or.
    Would we have expected anything less?

    Donald Trump’s refusal to acknowledge his loss in the 2020 election has fed concerns that the presidential transition would be sabotaged, as a Trump appointee refused to sign off on funding for the transition and the Trump campaign announced an expanded legal strategy in a quest to reverse the election result.


    The Center for Presidential Transition, a nonpartisan advisory board, urged the Trump administration on Sunday to begin the handoff to staff supporting Joe Biden, whose victory continued to grow in magnitude as states completed their ballot counts.


    “We urge the Trump administration to immediately begin the post-election transition process and the Biden team to take full advantage of the resources available under the presidential transition act,” the transition center said in a letter Sunday.

    “This was a hard-fought campaign, but history is replete with examples of presidents who emerged from such campaigns to graciously assist their successors.”


    Neither Trump nor his campaign nor political appointees has the power to stop the transition, and there was no sign that the basic steps toward Biden’s installation as president were at risk of interruption.


    But non-cooperation by the Trump administration in the transition could slow the ability of some agencies to act on directives by Biden in essential areas such as pandemic response and the reinstatement of environmental regulations, protections for migrants and international accords.


    A Trump appointee named Emily Murphy, who is administrator of the General Services Administration, has refused to sign a letter allowing the Biden team to formally begin its work, the Washington Post first reported. The paperwork would release millions of dollars for use in the transition process and give Biden’s team access to government officials and office space and equipment.


    Action by Trump administration officials to initiate the transition seemed unlikely without the assent of Trump himself, who has made no in-person public statement in the days since the election was called but who has tweeted false accusations of fraud and pressured campaign staff to expand challenges to the election.


    Members of Trump’s White House staff and even his campaign staff realise that he has lost, and top advisers including chief of staff Mark Meadows have urged Trump to consider a concession, CNN and the New York Times have reported


    But Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and others have urged him to hold rallies to challenge the election result, CNN reported. Giuliani and others have laid out an expanded legal challenge to the election that would include previously debunked claims such as voting by dead people, Axios reported.


    Trump’s legal strategy has gained zero traction so far, with judges throwing cases out of court for lack of evidence, and there was no indication that any new strategy would fare any differently. The Trump campaign has set up a “voter fraud hotline”, but instead of hot tips, aides taking phonecalls and emails have been subjected to a barrage of pranks from “lefty teenagers” and received “disturbing unsolicited adult images,” Axios said.


    The false accusations of fraud were landing powerfully among Trump supporters, however. The city commissioner’s office in Philadelphia, where counting took days owing to rules put in place by the Republican legislature, had been targeted by death threats, one commissioner, Al Schmidt, told the 60 Minutes news programme on Sunday.


    “At the end of the day, we are counting eligible votes cast by voters. The controversy surrounding it is something I don’t understand,” he said. “Counting votes cast on or before election day by eligible voters is not corruption. It is not cheating. It is democracy.


    “From the inside looking out, it all feels very deranged.”

    An Irritatingly Early Note on 2022

    Hey repeater666 get a load of this. It is your best case scenario.

    Republicans will likely need to defend seven vulnerable Senate seats in the 2022 midterms. Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski, Wisconsin’s Ron Johnson, and Florida’s Marco Rubio are sure to run for reelection. Richard Burr of North Carolina and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania have both announced that they will be stepping aside. Iowa’s 87-year-old wunderkind Chuck Grassley has not yet decided whether to seek another term and it remains to be seen whether Georgia’s Kelly Loeffler will hold her seat this year such that she can run as an incumbent in 2022.

    Republicans should be able to compete for seats in Colorado, Arizona, New Hampshire, and Nevada, but none of those are particularly probable pick-ups.

    Right now, the GOP is sitting tight at 50 seats until Loeffler and her fellow Georgian, David Perdue, face Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff in their January runoff elections. If one of them prevails, Mitch McConnell remains majority leader. If both win, ditto but with more breathing room. If both lose, Vice President-Elect Harris makes 51 for the Democrats.

    Assuming that last scenario doesn’t unfold, I’d anticipate — given the gains Republicans made in the House and the fact that the party controlling the White House typically struggles in midterm elections — that Republicans and Democrats may very well swap control of the House and Senate in 2022. It may look quite a bit like 2018, when Democrats annihilated Republicans in the House but actually lost ground in the Senate because of an unfavorable map.

    This would no doubt cause great consternation in the GOP, as a Biden administration may find itself more empowered in its second half than its first.

    Philly Vote-Counters Getting Death Threats Because of Trump’s ‘Deranged’ Theories: Republican Commissioner

    The team working around the clock to count votes in Philadelphia is allegedly receiving death threats because of the baseless election conspiracy theories being pushed by the sitting president. Al Schmidt, one of three commissioners who run elections in Philadelphia and the only Republican, told CBS News: “From the inside looking out, it feels all very deranged... At the end of the day, we are counting eligible votes cast by voters.” The commissioner alleged that the office is receiving threatening calls, with people telling them: “This is what the Second Amendment is for, people like us.” CBS News reported that Schmidt’s team will be counting provisional ballots for at least another week, though Pennsylvania and its 20 Electoral College votes were called for Biden on Saturday.

    So you could have voted for Republican Senate and House candidates, and Biden for President, or abstained from the Presidential vote. But you didn't, you voted for Trump, the most hate filled man to ever hold the office. You are a hypocrite, plain and simple.

    Classic baldy orange loser bullshit.



    As absentee ballots helped Biden overtake Trump in Pennsylvania last week, Republicans sought to stop Philadelphia officials from counting them. Their argument: GOP observers had been barred from the rooms where the votes were being counted.

    The problem: That wasn’t true.

    Republican observers were there, after all. Trump had “a nonzero number of people in the room,” one of his attorneys conceded in federal court Thursday evening.

    “I’m sorry, then what’s your problem?” asked U.S. District Judge Paul S. Diamond, who denied the request to halt the count.

    Classic baldy orange loser bullshit #2



    In Nevada, two days after the election, a group of Trump allies claimed that thousands of people had voted illegally in Clark County, home to Las Vegas.

    “That is unacceptable, and it’s giving legal people a sense that the system is corrupt,” said Richard Grenell, Trump’s former acting director of national intelligence.


    Neither the Trump campaign nor the GOP were named plaintiffs in the federal lawsuit that was eventually filed by Republicans, which presented no evidence that thousands of people had voted improperly.


    By then, the allegation had been whittled down drastically. Instead of 10,000 cases,
    Trump’s allies presented one: a woman named Jill Stokke, who said she was denied the right to vote in person because her mail ballot had been stolen and filled out by someone else.

    But, in fact, Stokke’s story was more complicated.
    Election officials said they had indeed received a mail ballot from her — but the signature matched her own. They had offered her a chance to cancel that mail ballot and vote again if she would sign an affidavit saying the mail ballot had been stolen. She did not.

    Classic baldy orange loser bullshit #3



    [QUOTE]Lawyers for the Trump campaign sent a letter Thursday to U.S. Attorney General William P. Barr alleging “criminal voter fraud in the State of Nevada” and claiming to have identified 3,062 people who voted improperly. They enclosed a list of addresses of voters who they said had moved out of state, information they said came from cross-checking voter data with the National Change of Address database.

    At a news conference Sunday before a crowd of cheering supporters in Las Vegas, Trump campaign officials went further, claiming that as many as 9,000 nonresidents wrongly voted and that the Clark County elections system was riddled with other fraud, without offering credible evidence.

    Groans and gasps could be heard from the crowd as campaign officials accused Democratic officials in Clark County of disenfranchising Republican voters. “Stop the steal,” the crowd chanted.

    Local election officials have stressed that Nevada law allows some people to vote while living out of state: students, military personnel and military spouses.


    “You don’t have to live here in order to be eligible to vote here,” Joe Gloria, the Clark County registrar of voters, told reporters last week.

    If you're bored and have a bit of time on your hands, go to Trump's Twitter, click on one of his comments and then on one of his followers accounts. It's fucking scary to think these people are real.

    I've just seen one woman who said that the Covid vaccine is entirely down to Donald Trump.

    They're absolutely fucking mental. It's a cult with Klondyke levels of brainwashing.
