Hardly. You'll rarely hear me go on about Canadian politics. But if you like that little cock sucker, you can join him.

Update, I just made a donation to your gofundme for Breonna.  The wager was fun, right up until the end.  Thanks for being a good sport, and enjoy the next 4 years.

Truth.  

But the fraud has been completely visible, no faith involved.  It actually takes more “faith” to look at the various videos and claim you see no fraud.

I don't BTW. 

But I can see so many here see the world in such Black and White scenarios.

You're so wise...and we're all so small next to your greatness. Understood.

America existed before the Republicans and will exist after they're gone.  

 

Do you plan on reintroducing anything? You know...the things Republicans stopped?

The latest conspiracy-theory is that the ones who invaded Congress were actually antifa in a maga-disguise. It is common that when something happens which makes you look bad you shout: false flag!

It must have been the idiot wing of antifa. They forgot the masks they always wear to these events.

It's safe to say that yesterday put an end to this charade. 

Trump finally conceded that he's gone January 20th. Of course it was facing the threat of being forced to resign or being removed from office. :rolleyes:

Next up: impeaching him... going from four more years to maybe four more days...

Waste of time unless McConnell agrees, and he doesn't.

From Snopes

Quote

If a president is impeached, convicted, and removed from office, they lose many of the benefits awarded to former presidents, such as a pension, security detail, and travel allowance. A president who is removed from office via impeachment may also be barred from holding future office.

From Senator Jeff Jackson, North Carolina

 

Last week I sent an email that bluntly stated:

“The election was not rigged. The elected officials saying otherwise are being intentionally dishonest.”

And I got a lot of replies from people saying, “Are you SURE it wasn’t rigged? How do you know? Where’s the proof? I heard that it was, so maybe we should look into that.”

Ok, so let me double back for a minute.

If you honestly aren’t sure whether or not the election was rigged, the best way I know to address that is to provide a wide variety of sources on the subject.

So here are 44 sources - a number of them supporters of the president - for you to consider.

In my view, if you genuinely believe that the election may have been stolen, you owe it to yourself to at least check your beliefs against what you see below.

(And if, upon review, you determine that the evidence does not support a conclusion that the election was rigged, the next step would be to cast a skeptical eye toward the sources that repeatedly tried to convince you otherwise.)

“But Jeff, why should I believe anything you say?”

Don’t. Check the sources.

“But Jeff, these sources are all corrupt and lying and should be ignored!”

Ok - but just know that when people accuse you of believing a conspiracy theory, this is why.

It’s because - in the face of an immense number of fact checks, Republican judges, and Republican elected officials - you’re not willing to consider the possibility that you may have been misled.

That’s conspiracy theory territory, and you should just know that going in.

Dominion suing Powell for 1.3 billion. They have also sent letters of intent to Fox, Hannity, Dobbs, Bartiromo, Wood, Giuliani, Limbaugh, Newsmax, ONN and Epoch Times. Legal eagles say their case against Powell is pretty much a slam dunk.

Dominion executive Eric Coomer who had to go into hiding because of death threats from Trump's crazy battalion is suing Powell, Giuliani, Newsmax, ONN and multiple other right wing agencies and commentators.

Bout time these people were held accountable.

Hah, that "lawsuit" will never see a court, because if it does, all of their dirty deeds done will have to be heard by the courts involved.  Witnesses from the US, Italy, Germany and South America will sink Dominion like an enraged Kraken.  This is just Dominion trying to get some good press while they can.

You say that with the secure knowledge that you are probably much too insignificant to be sued for libeling a company with no evidence whatsoever.

Wow Beaver, another hatchet job on Trump, this time by the Globe and Mail.  I'm sure there are a lot of hatchet swingers out there, but for them to claim that he's accomplished nothing illustrates clearly how blind they are.  I'm not going to list his accomplishments and get into this with you as it would be a waste of both of our time. 

When this is over, one of us is going to be $100 poorer.  Do you have a short list of organizations you want the money to go to?  I've got a list of one.

Ok @sharkmantime for you to become $100 poorer as you promised You can make the donation here under the name Sharkman-MLW or something like that

Another strange thing:

It looks like many pro-Trump forums and groups on Facebook went away.  

My take is that they were set up by paid content providers and the contracts are now cancelled since there's no sense in paying for content until the next ramp-up.  Thoughts ?

Last piece of news: Sydney Powell revoked her Georgia lawsuits.  Let's try to follow up with this, as she doubtlessly won't be in the news for these lawsuits much longer.
