Another Perfect Call
Author: Raine    Date: 01/04/2021 13:55:37

Yesterday, Washington Post released a 4 minute excerpt of a one hour call with the Georgia Secretary of State and others. Within minutes the folks over at the infestation known as Parler were really furious at the occupant of the White House for trying to subvert our democracy.

Just kidding. They were cracking the mystery of Mr. Orange in the Billiard room with the lead pipe.



About two hours after the snippet was published, the same newspaper released the entire call and the transcript. It's extraordinary even for said occupant. As many people have noted, he sounds like a desperate D-list hustler. The thing is, it's worse than that. He knew exactly how many votes he needed. And to be clear, as the occupant was telling these election lies, he was he telling the GA Sec of State to make them truth.
Okay, you know that. You know that. You have no doubt about that. And you will find you will be at 11,779 within minutes because Fulton County is totally corrupt, and so is she totally corrupt.

And they’re going around playing you and laughing at you behind your back, Brad, whether you know it or not, they’re laughing at you. And you’ve taken a state that’s a Republican state, and you’ve made it almost impossible for a Republican to win because of cheating, because they cheated like nobody’s ever cheated before. And I don’t care how long it takes me, you know, we’re going to have other states coming forward — pretty good.

But I won’t . . . this is never . . . this is . . . We have some incredible talent said they’ve never seen anything . . . Now the problem is they need more time for the big numbers. But they’re very substantial numbers. But I think you’re going to find that they — by the way, a little information — I think you’re going to find that they are shredding ballots because they have to get rid of the ballots because the ballots are unsigned. The ballots are corrupt, and they’re brand new, and they don’t have seals, and there’s a whole thing with the ballots. But the ballots are corrupt.

And you are going to find that they are — which is totally illegal — it is more illegal for you than it is for them because, you know, what they did and you’re not reporting it. That’s a criminal, that’s a criminal offense. And you can’t let that happen. That’s a big risk to you and to Ryan, your lawyer. And that’s a big risk. But they are shredding ballots, in my opinion, based on what I’ve heard. And they are removing machinery, and they’re moving it as fast as they can, both of which are criminal finds. And you can’t let it happen, and you are letting it happen. You know, I mean, I’m notifying you that you’re letting it happen. So look. All I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have because we won the state.
This was done with WH chief of staff Mark Meadows participating in the call. This is seditious and under normal circumstances his own party would have forced him to resign, just like they tried during his call to the president of Ukraine.

Oh, yeah, my bad.

It's logically too late to impeach him again. The problem is this party. Tom Nichols, (former Republican) wrote a station piece about the members of the GOP House and Senate challenging President-elect Biden election and electors. It's titled Worse than Treason.
“We are what we pretend to be,” Kurt Vonnegut wrote in the opening of his 1962 novel, Mother Night, “and so we must be careful what we pretend to be.” Republicans in Congress are pretending to be seditionists—and so they have become, in fact, seditionists.

Forget all the whispered denials and the off-the-record expressions of concern in private; ignore the knowing smirks on camera from GOP officials who are desperately trying to indicate that they’re in on the joke. Brush aside the caviling of the anti-anti-Trump writers who would rather talk about that time in 2017 when some Democrats objected to the Electoral College vote (and were gaveled down by Joe Biden himself).

(snip)

It is possible that the sedition caucus knew that all these challenges would fail. It is possible that they know their last insult to American democracy, on Wednesday, will go nowhere, as well. This is irrelevant: Engaging in sedition for insincere reasons does not make it less hideous. Arguing that you betrayed the Constitution only as theater is no defense.

(snip)

The sedition caucus is worse than a treasonous conspiracy. At least real traitors believe in something. These people instead believe only in their own fortunes and thus will change flags and loyalties as circumstances require. They will always become what they pretend to be, and so they can not—and must not—be trusted ever again with political power.


At least real traitors believe in something.

This Republican Party allowed that phone call by the Occupant of the WH. This Republican Party has laid bare for all that choose to see facts and reality that they hate democracy and they love power, money above anything else. January 20th cannot come soon enough.

Happy New Year!

Good morning, bloggers!!!!

I have said that Trump always finds a way to sink to new lows. Now, he has been joined in this by most of his party in Congress.

Trump should, as Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois, be investigated. I am afraid that our nation is at a crossroads. Either we will fall into despotism or we will rise to support the best aspirations of our democracy.

I am so sorry for Steph and everyone at the show.

I am so sorry for Steph's family. May their mother's passing be gentle.

We need to decide if we are a nation of humans ruled by law or a nation where the laws can be flouted by leaders.

We now have people not being taken to the ER rooms in major American cities. We are now rationing care.

Heaven help us all!

I feel so bad about her Mom.

I had prepared myself that our last Xmas with her would likely be my last with her.

And it was.

Morning

Furious about these seditious traitors, and even more so that I know they will face zero consequences.

Depressed that they even think this is ok.

And could laugh as the absurdity of it all.

But mostly furious.

Fortunatley, my Dad was rational to almost the end of his battle with diabetes. The irony is that he was fine the last day my sister and I saw him. He told us to come back in two days. He died the next day. (I think he knew that he would not last another day.)

I would take it for a given that Trump would both attack Georgia officials and misrepresent the call.

It seems that all the GOP wants to do is kiss the wring of Dumb Corleone.

Sort of prepared myself when my aunt was diagnosed but it was never enough for when we lost her.

Is anyone surprised that Trump has no qualms about violating the Geneva Conventions Against Gas Warfare?

That sounded wet and sticky. A stain-maker, for sure

From November, but a delightful read nonetheless.

Gotta love that British snark

Good morning. Trump is supposed to have a superspreader event, er, rally in Georgia tonight. Will he end up telling his MAGAts to stay home?

Probably - he's pissed at McConnell for acknowledging Biden's win (and not going along with his coup attempt), so he'll try to screw him over by helping the Dems take over the Senate.

Mornin' all!

Today I learned there's a female version of the name "Cletus".

And no, get your mind outta the gutter.

I wonder if the Occupant is going to Georgia at all.

AF2 has already left for the state.

Who has heard the rumor that he might go to Scotland on the 19th?

Comment by TriSec on 01/04/2021 18:03:58
Greetings, comrades.

As I have pondered for months, if not YEARS....

Is it NOW that the military oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies kicks in?

If not, WHEN?

There may be a complication. From the Scotsman:

Scotland is going into lockdown for a month.


Coronavirus in Scotland: 'Stay at home' - Nicola Sturgeon announces full lockdown from midnight
Nicola Sturgeon has said Scotland is in “a race between the vaccine and the virus” as she announced stringent new lockdown measures from midnight and the closure of schools until February.
By Gina Davidson and Hannah Brown
Monday, 4th January 2021, 5:51 pm

The First Minister said soaring case numbers of Covid-19 and the modelling of the spread of the virus suggested that without stringent new restrictions NHS capacity could be breached within three weeks.

She said prevarication or delay in dealing with the virus “almost always makes things worse not better” and that to ensure Scotland did not see the level of cases currently being experienced in London the government needed to “act quickly”.

Ms Sturgeon said Monday’s case numbers – 1,905 new cases, with 15 per cent of tests being positive – “illustrated the severity and urgency of the situation”.

As a result, a new lockdown will start at midnight for all areas of Scotland currently in level four and schools will shift to online learning from January 11 for the rest of the month, rather than returning on January 18.

The Scottish islands in level three will remain in that tier, but schools will still close.

It may come to it soon. I expect the Proud Boys and their ilk will create a lot of violence on Wednesday.

And in other news, my new years' resolution was to leave Facebook.

I'm still on messenger - but I deactivated my main account (instead of deleting outright for now.)

As I posited to the nice people at Facebook when they asked why - "Facebook has become a wretched hive of scum and villainy, and I have no further use for it."

My sister got her first vaccine today!


Comment by Raine on 01/05/2021 00:50:32
My other sister will be getting hers on the 6th,

I cannot express how much relief I have about this.

I;m sorry about that,

FB is what we make our pages about.
