    Mike Lindell Loses It On CNN Reporter As His Cyber Symposium Disintegrates



    MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell’s disastrous “Cyber Symposium” concluded on Thursday without offering any of his promised evidence of fraud in the 2020 election.

    But when confronted by a CNN reporter, Lindell claimed he couldn’t show the evidence, as he’d promised, because of something-something, the media.
    “I have that proof with my people that we’re bringing to the Supreme Court,” Lindell told CNN’s Donie O’Sullivan. “I don’t need the media driving the narrative before my case to the Supreme Court.”

    That excuse was in sharp contrast to his claims leading up to the event, in which he promised to deliver “100%, non-subjective evidence” that Donald Trump won the election. (He didn’t.)

    Lindell swore his evidence would be so strong that the Supreme Court would unanimously rule in his favor, that President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris would resign and that Trump would be reinstated on Aug. 13.

    Instead, the supposed evidence was described by one of Lindell’s own experts as a “turd.”

    O’Sullivan brought election security expert Harri Hursti to Lindell’s event to analyze anything he produced.

    “We expected a huge pile of data which we wouldn’t be able to understand and how it can be evidence,” Hursti said. “We didn’t expect there’s no pile of anything.”

    Apparently Biden called someone by the wrong name the other day and RPeters found it news worthy. (Can't find the post at the moment,) Here's something he might take note of.

    Lest we forget.

    Alex Jones blasts Trump as 'dumbass' over vaccines

    Far-right talk show host Alex Jones slammed former President Trump after the 45th president encouraged people at an Alabama rally to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

    A clip from the Aug. 22 taping of InfoWars appears to show Jones accusing the former president of heralding the vaccine for political gain and bowing to media pressure.

    “Shame on you, Trump. Seriously. Hey, if you don’t have the good sense to save yourself and your political career, that’s OK,” the InfoWars host said.

    “At least you’re going to get some good Republicans elected, and we like you,” Jones added. “But, my God, maybe you’re not that bright. Maybe Trump’s actually a dumbass.”

    The feeble-minded wanker is STILL whining.

    Former president Donald Trump continued his false claims of election fraud on Monday, suggesting he was "robbed" of a second term and that President Joe Biden should be forced to give him back the White House.

    In an interview with right-wing radio host Todd Starnes, Trump claimed he was winning several swings states "by a tremendous number — and all of a sudden, it got wiped out."

    "They cheated, and you know when people cheat, I always say, 'If Tiffany gets robbed of its diamonds, when they catch the robber, you have to give the diamonds back,'" Trump said, referring to the iconic jewelry company.

    "They have all of this incredible evidence (of election fraud)," he added, falsely. "Does this mean we have to keep the people that cheated for another three-and-a-half years? Because we're not going to have a country left, I can tell you that. We won't have a country left."


    Trump made the comments in response to a question from Starnes, who asked, "What can we do to help save this country?"


    "The first thing you have to do is look at the results that are going to soon be coming out of Georgia — a very corrupt election, unbelievably corrupt," Trump responded. "Arizona, they led the way. The senators in Arizona deserve a major medal, because they led the way. They found massive fraud."

    "They have better things to do". Major Republican donors are staying away from Trump

    Donald Trump : Former POTUS-106907720-1625676472445-gettyimages-1327493802-2p2a4643_20210707120359995-jpg

    Key Points
    • Several of the Republican Party’s biggest and most influential donors are signaling that they don’t plan on helping fund former President Donald Trump’s political operation, at least for now.
    • Wealthy financiers have instead opted to spend money on the GOP’s efforts to take back Congress or to support other potential 2024 presidential candidates such as Ron DeSantis and Tim Scott.
    • Donors are also concerned about how Trump’s organization is spending the money it has raised from smaller donations.
    • “Big money, sophisticated people are just losing interest in this s--- show,” said an advisor to longtime Trump allies in Silicon Valley.

    Until Trump declares he is a candidate he can spend donations anyway he wants.
    Big money donors are not going to throw money at Trump knowing it is just another scheme to enrich himself personally.

    In 3 years Trump will not be the Republican candidate and Biden will not rerun. 3 years is forever in politics so who will be the Republican and Democrat candidates is pure speculation at this time.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Good news. Another Trump sign to be removed

    Trump in advanced talks to sell D.C. hotel - Axios

    Former President Trump is in advanced talks to sell rights to his Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., sources tell Axios.

    Why it matters: The removal of Trump’s big, golden name from Pennsylvania Avenue would be a symbolic bombshell savored by opponents.


    • The historic building became a prop and symbol for both sides in the political wars.
    • The hotel was a central setting during his chaotic presidency, with Trump preening at his personal table, and supporters and supplicants thronging the lobby bar and restaurants to curry favor.


    How it would work: Trump would sell the leasing rights to a real estate developer, who in turn would negotiate with hotel companies that would manage the property and rebrand it.


    • Details of the deal’s terms aren't yet known but Trump’s representatives have been in talks with major hotel chains and investors.
    • Trump, who initially tried to sell the leased federal property in the fall of 2019, declined Axios' request for comment.
    • Sources said the former president is likely to get less than the $500 million he was reportedly seeking in 2019.


    The backstory: The hotel is housed in the 122-year-old Old Post Office building.


    • Three years before Trump was elected, the General Services Administration (GSA), the federal landlord, announced a 60-year lease agreement with the Trump Organization.
    • Under the 2013 agreement, $200 million of private money was to be spent to restore the building and convert it into a luxury development.
    • The Trump Organization has been paying $250,000 a month in base rent, GSA said in 2017. The rent was to rise with inflation.
    • Many ethics and contract experts called upon GSA to end the 60-year lease after Trump was elected and became, in effect, both tenant and landlord, NPR noted, but GSA upheld the deal.


    Trump’s hotels and golf resorts have been hit hard by the COVID shutdowns that have walloped the hospitality industry — worsened for the former president by his lost heat after his 2020 defeat.


    • When Trump left office, The Washington Post reported that the D.C. hotel had a $170 million loan outstanding, and had seen revenue drop more than 60 percent compared to the previous year.
    • In early June, the Post reported that Trump had hired the brokerage firm Newmark Group to market the lease.
    • The original commercial real estate brokerage firm, Jones Lang LaSalle Inc., dropped out following the Capitol riot, Bloomberg reported.

    Donald Trump Signs Up to Call Boxing Match on 20th Anniversary of 9/11

    On Saturday, the United States will pause for a moment of reflection on the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Donald Trump, however, will reportedly be calling a boxing match at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. According to ESPN, Trump and his eldest son, Donald Jr., have signed up to provide commentary on Saturday’s four-bout event headlined by Evander Holyfield vs. Vitor Belfort. In a statement, Trump said: “I love great fighters and great fights... I look forward to seeing both this Saturday night and sharing my thoughts ringside. You won’t want to miss this special event.” Meanwhile, President Joe Biden reportedly plans to visit all three 9/11 memorial sites to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the attacks.

    Meltdown!


    Trump Calls Allies to Demand Gen. Mark Milley Be ‘Arrested’ for ‘Treason’

    In the afternoon hours on Tuesday, following reports that then-President Donald Trump’s top military adviser had formulated secret plans in case the commander in chief went “rogue” after the Jan. 6 riot, the ex-president picked up the phone and rang up several close associates and TV-prone political allies. According to two people familiar with the matter, the twice-impeached former president was sounding testy and had a simple request:


    He wanted his prominent supporters to go on television and in public this week to declare that Gen. Mark Milley should be “arrested” for “treason.”

    They followed his orders as various MAGA-faithful pundits and Trumpy candidates—including Ohio U.S Senate candidate Josh Mandel, Trump-aligned TPUSA frontman Charlie Kirk, and several former Trump officials—dutifully echoed the “treason” charge on social media.


    And by Tuesday evening, the twice-impeached former U.S. president was on a Newsmax show co-hosted by his former White House using the T-word.


    “I’ve had so many calls today saying that’s treason,” Trump told Newsmax hosts Sean Spicer and Lyndsay Keith. Later in the evening, the former president released a written statement through his office, calling him “‘Dumbass’ General Mark Milley,” adding that if the reporting is accurate, “I assume he would be tried for TREASON in that he would have been dealing with his Chinese counterpart behind the President’s back and telling China that he would be giving them notification ‘of an attack.’”


    “If this is true, General Milley would be a traitor to this country and should be tried for treason immediately. If true, he should be fired and tried for treason immediately,” Fox News star and informal Trump adviser Sean Hannity exclaimed later on Tuesday night, alongside an on-air graphic that blared “Benedict Milley.”

    The “treason” talk was sparked by revelations from a forthcoming book, Peril, by veteran Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, which depicts Milley going behind the president’s back to prepare for a potentially “rogue” nuclear weapons launch order from Trump and reassure Chinese military officials that the U.S. government did not intend to strike China amidst the chaos of the 2020 election.


    The day after the deadly Capitol riot that Trump instigated, The Daily Beast reported that “high-ranking national-security officials have spent the last 24 hours scrambling to figure out how to keep their commander-in-chief, Donald Trump, from inciting further violence at home, spilling national secrets, or sparking last-minute confrontations with international foes.”


    Excerpts of Woodward and Costa’s work published by the Post and CNN say that Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley—who continues on in that role under President Joe Biden—was so unnerved by Trump’s behavior in the aftermath of the insurrection and election that he believed the president was in “serious mental decline” and that the president could “go rogue.” At the time, such concerns were shared throughout the administration and one senior Trump official told The Daily Beast that the insurrection had “changed the calculus” and that “People are concerned about [the president’s] state of mind.”

    Milley, Woodward and Costa wrote, called a number of senior military officers into a secret Pentagon meeting to review nuclear launch procedures and told them to ignore orders for a nuclear launch unless Milley was involved, according to CNN. “No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I'm part of that procedure.”


    It’s unclear what Milley was reportedly referring to as there is no statutory requirement for the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to be involved in or consulted for the launch of a nuclear weapon.


    In the United States, the president has “sole authority” to launch nuclear weapons, meaning that no one either in the armed forces or the cabinet has to concur or agree with his decision to launch nuclear weapons insofar as the order is legal under the laws of war.


    What constitutes an illegal nuclear launch order, however, remains murky given that the mass destructive power of nuclear weapons is inherently in tension with the criteria for lawful targeting decisions like military necessity, distinction, proportionality, and unnecessary suffering.

    Questions about nuclear launch authority under Trump’s erratic personality have followed senior military officials throughout the former president’s tenure in office. In 2017, Gen. John Hyten, the former head of Strategic Command, which has responsibility for nuclear forces, brushed off concerns. In the event of a requested nuclear strike, Hyten said he would “provide advice to the president” and if told to do something illegal, “I'm going to say, ‘Mr. President, that's illegal,’” and instead work with the commander in chief to find a suitable legal alternative.


    In the wake of the insurrection, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi also called Milley to urge that the chairman take unspecified “available precautions” to ensure that an “unhinged” President Trump could not launch a nuclear strike.


    Woodward and Costa report that Milley also made two phone calls to China’s top military officer, Gen. Li Zuocheng, before and after the election to reassure the People’s Liberation Army chief that the U.S. was not planning to strike China and that the U.S. government was stable in the wake of the Capitol insurrection.

    In an appearance on Newsmax TV on Tuesday, Trump fumed at the reports of Milley’s alleged call with China’s top general.


    “So first of all, if it is actually true—which is hard to believe that he would have called China and done these things and was willing to advise them in advance of an attack—that’s treason,” Trump said.


    The idea was “totally ridiculous,” according to Trump. “For him to say that I would even think about attacking China, I think [Milley is] trying to just get out of his incompetent withdrawal out of Afghanistan, the dumbest thing that anybody has seen,” the ex-commander in chief continued.


    Pentagon officials on Tuesday told Fox News National Security Correspondent Jennifer Griffin that Milley had not “insert[ed] himself” into the chain of command, but simply “reviewed” existing protocol.


    As with many of his top administration officials, Trump’s relationship with his former top general has deteriorated with time. Milley, who flouted the norms of civil-military relations by appearing in a photo op alongside the president after federal law enforcement beat and tear gassed Black Lives Matter protests in Lafayette Square Park, subsequently apologized for the “mistake” and said it had “created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics.”


    Trump, Wall Street Journal reporter Michael C. Bender wrote in a different recent book, took umbrage at the apology and called Milley “weak” for making it. And at an August rally in Alabama, the former president publicly blasted Milley, saying “This guy doesn't have what it takes.”

    With trump, republicans are winning so much, they got tired of winning.
    California recall election results show Gavin Newsom winning — and Donald Trump losing
    "The California ballot officially featured 46 candidates vying to replace Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom in the effort to recall him. But in the end, the only one who mattered wasn’t even listed. Newsom was able to carry the day by effectively making the recall a race between him and former President Donald Trump — and Trump was the one who came up short Tuesday night."

    Can someone please explain why there is a "why is there a California recall election"?

    I did Google it but maybe I asked the wrong question.
