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.
I have to say, I’m a little disappointed with some fellow Conservatives today – seen too many ready to throw in the towel. Has Trump taught them nothing? You just keep fighting and you only quit when you are defeated. Until the whistle blows, it is still on.
Now, to be sure, it is pretty grim – but the MSM calls of the race for Biden are merest propaganda. Had the situations been reversed, they would never have called them for Trump unless Biden quit. The calls are merely to pressure Trump to quit (ha!) and demoralize the GOP base. The demoralization effort has clearly had some effect. So, stop it. Grow a pair. Politics ain’t beanbag.
The bottom line is that we have abundant physical and circumstantial evidence of voter fraud: what remains to be determined is whether or not the courts accept the evidence. And don’t think for a moment that the Democrats and the MSM (but I repeat myself) won’t put massive pressure on judges to rule the “correct” way. This is why Trump’s case has to be airtight – it has to be so overwhelming that fraud occurred that no one ( other than Democrats and the MSM – BIRM) deny it. We’ll see if Team Trump can come up with that – all I know is that Trump went golfing today and took some pictures with a bridal party at the course. He’s in a good mood, so you get and stay in one, too.
Well, Trump laid down the marker: he won and will win if all legal votes are counted. I think this is correct: to me, Trump not only won PA and AZ, he won MI and WI, as well. The sheer brazenness of the Democrat fraud here is astounding – they aren’t really trying to hide it, knowing as they do that the MSM will not show it to the Democrat base.
We’ll see how it comes out – it is an uphill climb for Trump as he has to get the fraud to stop long enough to certify the legal votes. This may go on for a while. Keep in mind as it goes on that you’re going to hear MSM reports and rumors – each and every one of them is a lie designed to get you to give up and then put pressure on Trump to quit. I’m sure they’ll have polls out soon showing that eleventy bazillion percent favor Trump conceding. I hope Trump wins – and some people think he will. I think the psychological turning point would be Arizona going for Trump. Right now, he’s behind there but he’s doing better than expected in the count and plenty are saying he should come out ahead there. The good news is that we’re having an honest count in Arizona – because, you know, it is run by Republicans.
Do now be swayed by network calls: nothing is for sure until the vote is certified. The calls of AZ for Biden and the House +5 for Democrats show how ridiculously the MSM is lying about things.
And that brings me to The Rest of the Story:
Tuesday was catastrophically bad for the Democrats. They failed in the Senate. They’ve already lost a net of ten House seats (so much for that D+5 call, huh?); they may end up with a majority of 219 or 220. There’s even a slight chance the GOP winds up with 218! And it is slight: don’t get your hopes up on that…but wouldn’t it be the most awesome thing in the world to take away Nancy’s gavel? Again! Democrats also got blown out in governorships and State legislative races: and this means the GOP has a huge advantage in the redistricting to take place next year…and we’ve got a 6-3 Supreme Court majority to ensure against Democrat court challenges. CA and NY are going to lose House seats next year – FL and TX will gain. Maybe 3 each! And we’re going to draw some nice, little districts to ensure they all go our way.
If the Democrats do manage to install Biden – whom I will never accept as the legitimate President – then we look forward to a crushing mid-term victory in 2022.
We’re watching to see who is in the fight – and one that I mark for the future is Richard Grenell. He’s been in this fight from the beginning. He doesn’t back down. He punches back twice as hard. And this Conservative Catholic may find himself gladly voting for the gay guy in 2024.
