Was that Giuliani beside her trying to get her to stop? Looked like it as he was reaching over and tapping the table. What a bunch of inept clowns. They are doing nothing for Trump or his election, they are just sabotaging their own future.

I think Giuliani is doing his best at trying to guarantee himself a pardon from Herr Trump...

Great Article on Trump's losing streak and why it may be useful to keep pointing this out to your friends that are Cult members.

https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house ... -nightmare

The Trump campaign or its allies have lost nearly 40 lawsuits; the most relief they obtained was to position poll observers four feet closer to the ballot counting tables. The coup de grâce may have been the disclosure by Attorney General William Barr, a Trump loyalist, that the DOJ had found no evidence of fraud that would affect the election outcome.


Take U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Brann in Pennsylvania, an Obama-appointed judge who is a life-long conservative Republican and a member of the Federalist Society. In a fair, reasoned and firm opinion, Judge Brann rejected a Trump lawsuit. He wrote that, “in the United States,” the Trump campaign’s “speculative accusations” did not come close to justifying the disenfranchisement of even a “single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state.” His ruling was affirmed on appeal in an opinion written by a Trump-appointed judge. (“Voters, not lawyers, choose the president.”)

I have a friend who's drunk so much of the Trump Kool Aid he firmly believes that Trump is the actual winner and that the election results will be overturned and Trump sworn in for a 2nd term. He says "it's far from over" and he's serious. So I found the best way to shut him up - I told him I have $500 in my pocket that says he's wrong and asked if he's willing to take the wager. Haven't heard from him since. I wonder why............

I don't know about blind dogs, but it's just being done so haphazardly and with the quality of the argument secondary to the main goal of headline. Indirectly the typos are an extra headline.

VP Pence visited Georgia in person on Friday and Pres. Trump is to visit the state in person on Saturday to rally support for the Republicans in the US Senate seat runoff elections. In contrast, former Pres. Obama did a far safer 'virtual visit' for the Democratic candidates. https://www.usnews.com/news/politics/ar ... rump-storm

The US Senate runoff in Georgia is likely going to be a massive and very ugly campaign with a for sure battle as to the counting process, court fights and recounts even if a Democratic win is by significant margins. The election is critical as if both Democrats win, it tips the power to the Democrats as then 50-50 and the Democratic VP to be Harris can break party line deadlocks and committees would have Democrats in control. I very much fear violence from clashes of pro-Trump and anti-Trump groups, even candidates at risk of assassination. Likely Trump will continue his delusional campaign to say he actually won, and that if the Democrats win the senate we will turn communist, take away guns, give Blacks control of government and a lot of other vile, racist and general hate. Meanwhile Trump is ignoring the need for his full attention to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic, causing 1000's more excess deaths and untold damage to our country.

No need for that. Just get Mellissa Carone in the room to talk to the virus, it will soon just give up.

BTW, it seems Ms Carone has a rather colourful past having been charged with obscenity for sending videos of her and her boyfriend having sex to his ex.

Well I for one am not going to be surprised if/when the people who attended the legislature events (both real and staged) start coming down with the virus in the large numbers. What happens then is, if like Arizona they shut down, then that becomes yet another new outrageous thing for Trump to tweet about—now not only WON’T they hold a session to overturn the result, but they can’t. Somehow that will also be a conspiracy.

Based on her performance alone I don’t see Ms. Carone being invited to anything but a rally with a captive audience. Had she been under oath or in an actual court proceeding she would have been reprimanded. She’s just one of a line of bodies being trotted out for the show, a dredge looking for her fifteen minutes in the sun—and there have been quite a few faces that we see for a day or two and the wilt under the obligation to prove their claim. Perhaps one will have something of merit, but at the same time if there was an actual case they wouldn’t be thrown into the melee of the media razzle dazzle and instead would have actually testified under oath in front of a judge.

As my four-year-old son and I were finishing up decorating the house for Christmas on Saturday night, and he was about to sit down to watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas, dozens of armed individuals stood outside my home shouting obscenities and chanting into bullhorns in the dark of night.

Definitely third world type stuff to be sure. If someone does end up getting hurt or killed do think Trump is going to care? We all know the answer to that.

Interesting the people who believe those demanding police be held accountable are silent on these domestic terrorists? Look at the plot against the Michigan governor. Complete and total silence from Republicans. Democrats at least come out and say "something needs to change but this violence is not good".

If a candidate winning a state three times in a row in one single election is not proof of deep-state orchestrated voting fraud, I don't know what is...

... someone should suggest that, since Biden won the state 3 times, he should get 2x their EC votes as a bonus in 2024.

I wonder how busy the incoming AG will be upholding the law of the land and go after all the election interference... like calling to get votes tossed out.

Ah, that’s easily explained - according to the right-wing extremists who post in the comments sections on Breitbart, OAN and Gateway Pundit, none of these people are real republicans, they’re traitors!


if that wasn´t Republic ending level stuff the mass psychogenic disorder would be fun to watch.

The same extremists are openly calling for an armed revolution to overthrow the election result while claiming they're "defending democracy". The word irony is apparently missing from their dictionaries.

i would also think that is kinda illegal along the lines of 10 years in prison or so?

P.S. defending democracy in an armed fashion is fine with me, heck, we have it in our constitution as a right, but you kinda have to fight against the people undermining democracy.

By the way, today is safe-harbor-day, isn’t it?

But I guess the only „safe harbor“ is the knowledge that Trump will never ever accept that he simply lost this election...

I just wish this dreadful episode will end soon. But knowing that the electors’ votes will be counted on January 06 only, I guess there is not much hope. Unless Trump will have a Grinch-like confession at Christmas...

Trump is a Malignant Narcissist, and this will not go away. Not for the next 4 years. With Kool-Aid drinking Fox news addicts pushing the curve, they only enable the actions of Trump, Ted Cruz, Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, and a host of the other power hungry folks that only care about how to keep in office while separating money from their uneducated followers .

I believe it is.

Probably why Texas filed a request just before midnight seeking permission to bring a lawsuit against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin directly in the U.S. Supreme Court, claiming that under the "excuse" of the pandemic those states changed voting rules illegally.

It will be interesting to see if this goes any differently to any of the other lawsuits.

The most interesting part from your link is what it says in the end:

Paxton is facing state securities fraud charges relating to his actions before taking office. The Associated Press also reported last month that he was under FBI investigation for allegedly intervening in legal matters on behalf of a major campaign contributor. Paxton has denied wrongdoing.


As we say in Sweden, "perhaps he should clean up in front his own door first".

Funny how that wasn't a issue before Trump lost the election. Might be the only USSC decission that can be done with two words "too late".

He's likely peddling for a pardon. This would be surprising if it went anywhere beyond Alito's desk, especially considering the Texas Solicitor General (you know, the guy who would actually argue the case in front of SCOTUS) isn't mentioned in the filing.

I have not doubt it is the "Give-Me-a-Pardon-Appeal".

Not only does the Solicitor General not sign onto the project, none of his legal staff did, either. Paxton (who is sort of the Matt Gaetz of Texas) went to outside counsel - undoubtedly at taxpayer expense - to back-up his filing.

"Notably, Paxton himself is listed as the agency's lead attorney on the case — a highly unusual role for the state official, who rarely plays a hands-on role even in the state's major cases. Paxton's new chief deputy, Brent Webster, signed onto the filing, but conspicuously absent is the agency's top lawyer for appellate work, Solicitor General Kyle Hawkins, who typically argues the state's cases before the Supreme Court and did so as recently as last month. None of Hawkins' deputies is listed as contributing to the case, nor are any of the agency's hundreds of other attorneys.

"The agency instead appears to have hired an outside attorney, Lawrence Joseph, to contribute to the case."

I am scared this is the end of our Republic. Three far right extremist justices were seated under McConnell for this very reason. And, of course, states rights do not matter anymore to any Republican....

This isn't the end of the republic. It is the end of the republican party as anything but a joke of uneducated and dishonorable people

Whatever shred of respect I had left for this country yesterday is gone today. When one of two political parties willfully cheers on this wanton destruction of our core values, and their followers goad them to ever greater depths of moral depravity it means to me that the United States has just a become a sad POS of a country. What a tragic frigging joke we are. I wish some of the pro Trump crowd that disappeared off this thread would come back and explain this crap to all of us.

I agree the behavior of a lot of the GOP has been shameful. What's ironic is most of them publicly profess faith -- I'd love to be a fly on the pearly gates when some of them supposedly walk through. On the other hand, I do take heart, that, so far at least, the system is doing what it was put in place to do. Trump and his cronies are testing it, that is not doubted, but so far the system and its constructs are holding.

Only if they were unconstitutional. However it has already been established that the voting laws are constitutional..
This is just a lawsuit by dishonorable people based on lies .

Fear not - this is a last desperate Hail Mary pass by some partisan political hack in a Texas. The Supreme Court, while definitely leaning conservative, still has some moral integrity. This suit is going nowhere, SCOTUS or not.
