Oh this just keeps getting better and better...
(BTW, this case was dropped today)
You just can't make up this level of incompetence and graft going on.
A campaign attorney for President Donald Trump was caught calling his own business partner as a witness during a Thursday hearing on alleged electoral irregularities in Arizona.
Kory Langhofer is leading the White House’s increasingly impossible efforts to overturn election results in Maricopa County where the 45th president was handily defeated by Joe Biden, leading to the Democrat’s razor-sharp victory margin in the Grand Canyon State.
To that end, Langhofer called witness Zack Alcyone–who just so happens to be the co-founder of petition analysis company Signafide. The company’s other co-founder? Kory Langhofer.

I think its time this thread died. The election is over, Biden won, SOMEONE NEEDS TO START A ""PRESIDENTIAL TRANSITION"" thread. I'll let someone else do that.

McSally conceded. She wasn’t going to budge as long as Trump had lawsuits pending in Arizona even though she got her ass handed to her by Mark Kelly. She is a Trumphumper to the end. I wonder if she realizes that her terribad performance brought out the vote that cost Trump Arizona?

Somebody wake me up when Trump finally accepts the inevitable and concedes.

The current leads by Biden in contested states AFTER all lawsuits.
So far, every lawsuit (except one lawsuit over a technical rule on how late LEGITAMITE ballots can be received in PA) has been lost.
AZ - 10,988
GA - 14,172
MI - 148,382
MN - 233,394
NV - 35,361
PA - 62,407
WI - 20,546

Evidently no one actually believes Trump won this election.

The Reuters/Ipsos national opinion survey, which ran from Saturday afternoon to Tuesday, found that 79% of U.S. adults believe Biden won the White House. Another 13% said the election has not yet been decided, 3% said Trump won and 5% said they do not know.

Everyone knows he lost. Even the people who wanted him to win. He really just needs to GTFO.

I would die laughing if all the recounts end up tossing a bunch of Trump ballots and Sleepy Joe actually extends his lead.

"Stop the Steal" website and pretty much the entire online movement have been astroturfed by Roger Stone and Steve Bannon.


Interesting thing is that the website was originally started in 2015, to potentially use to claim that Trump's republican opponents in the primary had cheated him. He didn't lose, so they didn't use it at the time.

This has been an electoral strategy of Trump going all the way back to the beginning. He was always going to use this if he lost any election.

What's fascinating to me is that something which is so telegraphed as this, that certain people don't find it the least bit suspicious...

Just read that, here is something that made me cringe,

"Clean your guns," said Dustin Stockton, one of the administrators of the Facebook Stop the Steal group, on a Facebook Live Stream video to his followers. "Things are going to get worse before they get better."

So we now have a large amount of disgruntled guns owners who are being fed the "we were robbed!" shit-story
and eventually it's gonna get ugly. This is your new GOP party folks, we will stoop to the level of enticing domestic
violence if need be.

What would their plan be? There isn't some Democratic base they can attack. Will they try to take over the Whitehouse once Biden is sworn in? Take over the capitol of some blue states? I don't see a scenario when any militia wouldn't be overwhelmed by law enforcement.

Oh, I'm not worried about any militia vs law enforcement or National guard but the solo wing-nuts attacking civilians
out of desperation.

What about law enforcement or national guard that are sympathetic (maybe even on a large scale) to said militias?

This is where all the demonizing of the police and defunding talk could really come back to bite the left if there was some sort of real chaos or destabilization.
