Wilbur, can you try to explain to Omni that Pompeo is acting as a part of a  lame duck presidency, considering that you at least have grasped that much?

Then when the two of you have come to understand that, could you both try to think of some reasons why Pompeo didn't cancel the trip?

Keeping in mind that none of the leaders of any of those countries will take anything Pompeo says seriously. That is, unless Pompeo has something important to say about US actions during the lame duck session?

Get it? Any ideas? You two can do this wilbur!


Hard to understand how you don't understand how strongly you contradict yourself with your statement on this issue, Biut then I've seen it elsewhere with you. Are you sure MLW isn't a better place for your ideas?

Trump is canvassing his lowlife supporters for money to pay his legal team and it must be working so far. But I greatly fear that when the money runs out the lawyers will pack up and go home. After all, they're lawyers and don't do what they do because of their political feelings.

And then all the fun will stop.  >:(

Except maybe, the hardcore Trumpers will take it to the streets with their guns?  ;D

Trump once again tries, and once again fails to overthrow the will of the people, this time in Michigan. How many more times will he attempt to thwart the process of democracy the country was born on before the SS has to cuff him and drag his stupid ass out of the White House? Anyway on a more "lighter" side now that Don jr. has come down with Covid 19 and with Don sr. having recolored his fake hairpiece, and the family lawyer flapping his gums ridiculously while the grease pours out of his face and his hair dye flowing down both cheeks I think I have an updated version of The Three Stooges ready to roll out. StAY TUNED.

The SS?

In this case, it's the other SS - the Secret Service.

It's all good in the land of the gun! Trump will remain as their president in exile to Mara Lago and Biden will be unable to change anything. Then maybee they'll do it all over again in 4 years by electing Ivanka as a figurehead president with daddy instructing her on what to say and do.

The land of the gun is too irreparably corrupted now to be able to fix the mess they've made of their country.

Will this all lead to a nuclear war led by the US against China? Who knows? Who really cares?

It's all good and it's free entertainment too!

recap: in the U.S. state of Georgia, by state law, the closeness of the margin between winnerBiden & LoserTrump necessitated a recount be done... the law only requires a representative sampling of ballots to be recounted; however, the Secretary of State authorized a full hand-recount of all state-wide ballots. The recount result maintained the Biden win; accordingly, by state law, the Governor certified the election results this past Friday.

now, as is the right of the Loser, after results are certified, LoserTrump has the right to request a recount... which is just what his elite strike-force legal team has done:



of note: this next recount will not be a hand-recount; rather, it will be a machine count. Trump's legal wizards are emphasizing signature matching was not done as a part of the prior hand-count and are requesting it be undertaken for all mail-in ballots... while knowing full-well that this is no longer possible. Per the Georgia Secretary of State:

Quote from: Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger
At this point in the process it is not possible to match signatures which already took place as a part of a two-step signature verification process because ballots are separated from envelopes to ensure the secrecy of voters' selections.

today, Saturday: Federal judge dismisses Trump campaign Pennsylvania lawsuit that sought to invalidate millions of Pennsylvania votes. Elite strike-force legal team responds... emphasizing the dismissal is simply an, 'expeditious fit helping their strategy to realize a U.S. Supreme Court hearing'. Apparently, they believe Trump stacking the court with conservative/right-leaning justices has consequences!

Waldo I sincerely appreciate the updates.

What I and others I am reading can't figure out is whether there's an actual strategy to win behind this:

- emerging batshit crazy figure and Qanon quoter Sydney Powell goes on NEWSMAX last night to claim the Republican governor of Georgia was PAID OFF by Dominion

- Wisconsin recount monitors for Trump rejecting EVERY ballot

Are they just mashing the buttons and muddying the water hoping to discredit the presidency of BIden and maybe break the system if they're lucky?

My anxiety is creeping back up, make me feel better.

That's exactly what he's doing. I'll be surprised if he doesn't throw a torch over his shoulder when he leaves the White House on Jan 20th.

It's a credit to their snake oil abilities that I still believe there must be something, anything, in the wait that will mount an cogent attack.

Maybe in Georgia there will be but in the meantime the vast majority of Republicans appear to be quite happy to slosh that snake oil all over themselves and join Trump's orgy.

Again, it needs to be said Trump is more effect than cause.

It's both.  And the Republicans can't possibly wish it on themselves that an exiled maniac in Florida will be remotely directing policy. 

If Jeb Bush wants to go again... or really any of them it's the last thing they need.

The Trump legal team has no strategy to win. That's quite impossible in the ordinary sense of winning. Their win comes in the form of dissention built up in the minds of the Trump supporters and their commitment to knowing that Trump was cheated.

You can think of it as setting the stage for America's politics going forward.

The only question is whether there will be enough of them to deligitimize Biden. I think there will be because Biden isn't legitimate to begin with, in the sense that he's establishment rot and won't have the commitment needed to make the change necessary to bring the American people up out of poverty.

They may not gravitate toward Trump again but they will still be motivated by the needs they have to find another anti-wstablishment hero to serve their gravelly desperate interests.

There's no contradiction in politics in that country. When the establishment system is so severely threatened as it was before Trump, the solution of the establishment is finding another shyster who will promise the people and then reneg on everything.

And around they go for another 4 years!
