WOW, bad for MAGA!

First, ABC News, there is nothing “so-called” about these fake electors. They submitted fake certifications that they were the real electors and they all voted for Trumpie, claiming that Trumpie had won the electoral votes of Georgia, presumably by one ballot, that 11780 votes Trumpie was looking for. The real electors cast their legally certified electoral ballots for the actual winner of the election in Georgia, Joe Biden, who won by 11,779 votes. The Trump “electors” were fake electors, you corporate asswipes.

Second, ten of these MAGA fraudsters were represented by the same attorney, paid by one of the PACs that Trumpie’s minions send money to. That lawyer did not tell any of her ten clients about the immunity deals from Fulton County DA Fani Willis. Willis took that lawyer to court for her failure to inform them of her offer. Eight of the ten so-called MAGA assholes accepted her immunity deal soon after being informed of the offers. Yow!

You go, Sister Willis, most of the country, and the world, is rooting hard for you.

Now you know the rest of the obvious story…

Rather than fanning the vague and hateful lie that there is widespread voting fraud, on all sides, and here’s another example of it, reports should always mention that voter fraud in the US is fleetingly, statistically insignificantly rare, except for the Stop the Steal crowd. 

Here’s what is missing from the report on the previous post, and, no, it is not members of both parties who are warned by judges not to intimidate witnesses at their trials, that’s a MAGA/Mafia/Nazi thing.  Buried toward the end of the article published in the Times Union, dateline Troy, NY:

Crist is a former news reporter and longtime GOP political operative in Rensselaer County who has wielded enormous influence in local politics and for many years has been McLaughlin’s political confidant. Wallace is a former Republican legislative aide in the state Assembly and Senate who also has a private political consulting business. Gordon is a former Troy mayoral candidate and a member of the North Greenbush Town Board.

The charges include allegations that the trio conspired to use their official positions to violate the constitutional rights of subordinate county employees to intimidate them into requesting and filing absentee ballots, according to federal prosecutors.

What a fucking shock.

Unregulatable Second Amendment freedom

The sacred Second amendment reads:

 “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” 

Or to those looking up the text of the sacred Second amendment on the internet, the first thing you will read is the interpretation of the “Originalist” Supreme Court who decided 5 to 4 what it actually means in the original intent of the holy, infallible framers

Unconnected to service in a militia, obviously, because if they’d meant the government shall not restrict the ownership of guns for members of a well regulated militia, they would have so stated, obviously, duh!

And it’s worth remembering, Antonin Scalia was a genius.

Investigate Public Corruption

A great demonstration of why a free press is vital to an informed electorate and a functioning democracy. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse with episode 21 of his important series The Scheme, how far right billionaires captured the Supreme Court, as part of their long quest to capture American democracy. Clarence Thomas edition, the details are damning. A clear, brilliant presentation, well worth checking out.

Coordination

Mueller was unable to find sufficient evidence of the Trump campaign’s criminal conspiracy with Putin, just 140 instances of coordination, along with numerous instances of obstruction of justice.

He’s currently coordinating with Jordan, Comer and others in Congress to obstruct the first criminal indictment of him, or at least poison the jury pool — lying about being arrested on a certain Tuesday and having three MAGA chairmen make wild legal threats to the local DA on the Monday before.  

Trumpie worked in coordination with Bill Barr and his postmaster general to spread disinformation about  massive mail-in voting fraud and to disable the mail service in heavily Democratic areas in the lead up to the 2020 election. Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Flynn, Eastman, Miller,  Bannon, Ginni Thomas, Meadows, My Pillow, Jolly Roger Stone, FOX and others coordinated efforts to keep Trumpie in power after he lost. Trumpie himself met with and coordinated with new MAGA members of Congress, like Greene and Boebert, along with loyalists like Jordan, Gaetz, and Brooksafter he lost in 2020.   These were the people he was counting on, along with Cruz, Hawley, Rand Paul, et al, to take the lie about the stolen election and run with it to stop the certfication of Biden’s victory, if only the DOJ would send a letter to every swing state falsely claiming it was investigating massive election fraud. 

On January 6th he coordinated with his political appointees to minimize police presence along the route of his unpermitted march on the Capitol and planned storming of the joint session of Congress.

The DOJ is now investigating what appears to be a massive, coordinated, very successful ($250,000,000 and counting) campaign of wire fraud in relation to Trump/RNC fundraising on a lie.

If you listen to the corporate talking heads, the hard part of pinning this squirming specimen down in a criminal trial is proving his intent was corrupt.  Seriously?
