Earlier today, AG Barr had a meeting with Mitch McConnell and shortly thereafter, McConnell offered a pretty vigorous defense of the President’s actions.
What I think is that Barr laid out what the President has and what it might mean and Ol’ Cocaine Mitch signed off on the fight. There are lots of reasons for this:
- It is the right thing to do (important to you and me, less important to politicians).
- Trump might win. It’s a long shot, but it is there.
- The GOP base wants the fight.
- We wont alienate anyone who matters to us.
- Getting voter fraud front and center is simply good, in and of itself.
Team Trump has amassed a very large amount of evidence and they are now starting to present it in court and in several States. Eventually, all disputes will wind up at the federal level and, ultimately, likely at the Supreme Court. The key for Trump is to invalidate ballots as illegal. If he does that, he can win. If he can’t, then he’s done. We’ll see if he can do it.
Fox News is now just CNN. I stopped watching ages ago and now everyone is dropping it like a bad habit. And past time, too: even the few good guys over there (Tucker and Hannity) do pull their punches to please their MSM masters. They have to: if they don’t, then contracts don’t get removed. Tucker gets $10 million a year – and he doesn’t want to give it up. This is why he never criticized by name Wallace’s atrocious moderating at the debate. No matter how good the guy or gal is, the requirement for employment in the MSM is to lie – by act or omission. You can’t get a job there or retain it unless you forswear telling the whole truth. Trust none of them. Everyone, move over to Newsmax and OANN.
We’ll see how it plays out – and people might find that, once again, we have tacked something on to the Constitution rather than amending it and that can lead to all sorts of trouble. Since 1787 and to this day, the power to elect the President lies with the several States. We never changed that. What we did – because the purpose of American governance since 1787 has been to get around the Constitution – is tack on people voting for President and the States accepting that as the choice. But the power still lies with the States. There is no Constitutional right for the people to vote for President. And, really, the power belongs to the State legislatures – who may be forced to select Electors if the voting results are so screwed up, no one can tell who won.
Anyways, my dream is for the challenges to result in a Supreme Court decision written by Clarence Thomas (with a concurring opinion by Kavanaugh) resulting in a 269/269 tie and then the House elects Trump over the shrieking objection of Nancy Pelosi.
