Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Willowed;
One type of pushback I'm not hearing nearly enough to the Stalinist "Say there was no widespread election fraud" tactic is, it didn't have to be widespread. Trump and some supporters have made this argument harder by the oft repeated claims of "landslide" and "millions of fake votes".
All that was needed was 3/1,000 of one percent of the vote [.0003] to have been fraudulent to have installed Biden.
To me the proper response to their Stalinism is "Say the Democrats couldn't fix three one thousandths of one percent of the vote. Say it!"

Ignatz,

I don't think a lot of people knew how the system got manipulated. I sure didn't.

I agree thought, those who DO know (and I am not sure at first even President Trump did) should start talking more about the easy switching in several cities and the obvious coordinated effort.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

The media seems to have a slight conflict in their scapegoating of Cuomo in the same way a whore has a conflict with her pimp.

It was the media superstructure after all that actually gave the slimy little shitbird a frickin Emmy award for his obviously duplicitous press conferences, which is kind of the media whore giving their pimp a medal and then complaining when he gives her a black eye on the way home.

And yes "scapegoating" was a poor choice of words.

No good me heading home to Perth in the hope of a relaxing time in Australia.

"2 million Australians forced into five-day "full lockdown" after single hotel security guard tests positive for COVID. And the arrests have already started."

https://notthebee.com/article/2-million-australians-forced-nto-five-day-full-lockdown-after-single-hotel-security-guard-tests-positive-for-covid

Davod

The most ridiculous part of the story is that the security guard worked in a quarantine facility.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Is there anything this guy can do to destroy his credibility?
Less than one week after advising Americans that wearing two or even three masks would be ‘more effective’ against the spread of coronavirus, Dr Fauci has done a complete 180 (again) and admitted that there is no data to suggest it will make any difference.

Apparently not.

Perth has been isolated from the rest of Australia. My niece lives there. They had been free of masks and lockdowns (aside from locking out the rest of Australia) until now. Will be toughest on her children.

From the last thread:

Senator Ted Cruz: “President Trump’s rhetoric, I think, went way too far over the line. I think it was both reckless and irresponsible because he said repeatedly—and he said over and over again—he won by a landslide; there was massive fraud; it was all stolen everywhere. That evidence, the campaign did not prove that in any court, and to make a determination about an election it has to be based on the evidence, and so simply saying the result you want, that’s not responsible and you’ve never heard me use language like that.

Whose fault is it that Trump's lawyers were consistently prevented from presenting the evidence of fraud in a trial?

1) Did evidence of massive election fraud never exist but our confirmation bias led us to assume it did exist?
2) Did Trump hire incompetent lawyers who legally blew a case that should have been easily won?
3)Did corrupt judges ignore the legit evidence and rule against Trump?

IMO Cruz is correct about Trump's rhetoric ONLY if the answer to #1 is "yes".

Jane

Something doesn't make sense to me about Trump's legal team for the second impeachment.

All the articles I have read say Trump's lawyers (past and present) want to base the defense on the fact the entire impeachment is a political sham and unconstitutional because Trump is no longer in office. The articles also say that Trump wants to use the impeachment trial as an opportunity to provide evidence of election fraud and that the election was stolen.

If that is what Trump really wants why aren't Rudy and Sidney Powell is charge of Trump's legal team?

Jane

3 hours from the Marriott Ocean Pointe? I thought you were in Palm Beach. Clearly I screwed up.

Totalitarians gonna totalitarian. It's that simple. No matter how much they get they always want more. They want total control. They want to subjugate the masses and coerce them into rightthink.

For 5,000 years the world was made up of kingdoms and empires. it was only with the spark of the American Revolution that the rights of man were exemplified and republican democracy gained a tenuous foothold.

Whether the rule of the masses or totalitarianism it is all really the same. The subjugation and exploitation of. one group by another, smaller group.

As I've said before, the China model is creeping around the world. The elites think they know better as they edge closer to disaster. This includes all of them.

A sad day today as Dustin Pedroia retired from the Boston Red Sox. Pedroia is my favorite player of all time and epitomized what kind of mentality it takes to be a successful athlete. He was on the way to being a shoe-in for the Hall of Fame until a dirty slide from Manny Machado destroyed his knee. Hope to see him as the Red Sox manager in a few years.

Rocco

I haven't trusted Cruz since I learned that while working for the Cruz campaign, Chuck Cooper tried to persuade Sessions to leave the Trump campaign and work for Cruz.

“I was pleading with [Sessions] to support Ted [Cruz] and not endorse Trump, and I failed to persuade him, unfortunately,” Cooper told TPM. He unsuccessfully lobbied Sessions over a few phone calls and texts not long after Trump’s August 2015 rally in Alabama.

https://talkingpointsmemo.com/muckraker/chuck-cooper-jeff-sessions-trump-mueller

Trump and Cruz had a nasty exchange regarding wives and AFAIC, stuff like that can never be truly forgotten or forgiven. Cooper was pleading with Sessions, that sounds a bit extreme to me and leves me with the impression Cooper dislikes Trump. Yet after Sessions is confirmed, he invites his good friend to help fill out his organizational staff. And Cooper gave us Rosenstein. I think Yates positioned Rosenstein to take over when Sessions recused. Rosenstein is the fixer. He fixed Obama's Uranium One problem. He fixed Obama's Stuxnet Virus leak problem and he fixed Obama's Spygate scandal.

I think Cuomo's AG is preparing to run against him, Jane.

Pedroia tried to lead a mutiny against Valentine before he even had a chance to suck, and he threw the whole team under the bus when they were throwing inside at Machado after he spiked Pedroia.
He also was egging on Price when he was going after Eckersley on the team plane. He's kind of a dick.

For Thanksgiving and Christmas some locales were monitoring food purchases looking for possible violations of the restrictions against large gatherings, with some NY and New England Stop & Shops requiring affidavits to be handed for Butterballs over a certain size. Will they be doing something similar with Superbowl Sunday nacho platters, or is that sort of think OK now, having succeeded in getting Trump deposed?

--Iggy, did you make a math error:Daniel Wattenberg

I think I did but in other other direction.
150,000,000 x .0003 = 45,000
.3 = 30%
.03 = 3%
.003 = .3% = 3/10ths of a percent.
.0003 = .03% = 3/100ths of a percent.

My math skills are negligible so I will stand any correction.
