Today, 08Dec2020, marks the ‘Deadline of Resolving Election Disputes’ in US Federal law. All state recounts and court contests over the US presidential election results must be completed by today.
Last Friday, 04Dec2020, Politico reported that The T**** campaign struck out six times in court cases. In Arizona, the court found “no misconduct, no fraud and no effect on the outcome of the election.” A Nevada judge ruled that “There is no credible or reliable evidence that the 2020 General Election in Nevada was affected by fraud.” And just within the last few hours, Brian Tyler Cohen revealed that the T**** campaign has scored just one for 46 in court. So much for ‘irrefutable evidence of widespread electoral fraud’; all those hundreds of affidavits have proved just one thing: that a small proportion of any population can be fooled into believing absolutely anything — and believe it so vehemently that they’re prepared to lie if doing so means that it might persuade others of their version of ‘reality’.
On ‘A Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ (one of my favourite shows), Stephen recently interviewed Christopher Krebs, the guy who was the director of the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency — until T**** fired him (by, naturally, tweet) just after his department issued a report stating that the 2020 US election was the ‘Most Secure In American History’.
I’ve thought all along that not even the Liar-in-Chief could really believe his own web of lies; that his actions were in reality distractions. Last month, I thought that the real objective might be to divert attention from the Georgia runoff elections on 05Jan2021, the results of which could give the edge to the Democrats in the Senate. (The voter registration deadline for those elections was yesterday, by the way; and by brainwashing his supporters into believing that there’s something wrong with the US electoral system, T**** may well have convinced many of them not to vote, shooting himself in the foot.)
The other day, however, I was alerted to a couple of other things going on in the background that may be even more relevant, and even more chilling:
- Trump Administration Targets Banks Divesting From Fossil Fuels In New Anti-Climate Rule
- Here’s How Big Oil Wants The Supreme Court to Help Delay and Derail Climate Lawsuits
Time to get back to reality, methinks.
