It's time to start ignoring him. 

 -k

Trouble seems to be though that ignoring him is similar to ignoring a mosquitoe landing on your arm. We need to continue to swat such annoyances.

Poor old Donny, still trying to flog the big lie theory as to how he lost the election. Unfortunately there seem to be a large number of dimwits in that country that buy his bullshit. tsk, tsk!

As people here probably already know, as part of the "big lie" that Stubby McBonespurs is promoting, there is currently a "Recount/Audit" of ballots cast in Arizona, which Trump thinks will find fraud among thousands of ballots. (This is despite Arizona already performing multiple recounts/audits.)

So what are the problems with this audit?

- It is being performed by a company called Cyber Ninjas, who have never done any sort of auditing work before. However, the owners of Cyber Ninjas are Trump supporters. (And much of the funding for it comes from pro-Trump sources)

- Initially, Cyber Ninjas was not going to publish anything about its procedures, until the courts stepped in and forced them to.

- The auditors were initially using blue pens. The problem is, Arizona's vote counting machines can read both blue and black ink, so during recounts, workers are supposed to use red or green pens. (Otherwise, any marks they make on the ballot would have ruined its integrity.) They only switched pens after a reporter pointed out their mistake.

- One of the people they had counting votes was a republican politician (Anthony Kern) who actually present in Washington during the January terrorist activity. (He is actually handling ballots that have his own name on them)

- Among the things the workers are doing is using UV light to examine ballots (supposedly looking for a magic water mark), and examining the paper for traces of bamboo (which would somehow indicate the paper came from China, which would be evidence of fraud somehow)

- The counting was supposed by done by mid-May, but at the rate they are going, it will take months to complete. (However, the space they are using is booked to hold high school graduations soon. So they will have to suspend their count or find somewhere else to work)

Many Americans are hoping President Trump will run for President in 2024. Some are hoping he will run for congress in 2022. The Governor of Florida has stated he will not allow President Trump to be extradited to face charges in another state. It should be interesting to see how he can campaign for President if he can't step out of Florida. If he were elected to Congress, he could be arrested as soon as he touches down in DC. Interesting times.

I have found all what you have just discussed intriguing. I suspect Trump is a criminal and seeing him led away in hand cuffs would help me rejuvenate my respect for America. If he's allowed to run again I will be posting connections to his interview where he says he gets to "grab women by the **** because they think I'm a star"

It would be funny if he fled to Florida once the indictment happens and could only go to states with Governors that support him.

And had to stay out of federally-managed airspace.  ;)

A governor canít protect a person from federal arrest.  They donít have those powers.

I hope they do indict Stubby McBonespurs. I think there is plenty of evidence that he has broken at least some laws (and that's just from what's known publically... who knows what has been uncovered by investigators working behind the scenes.) And unlike some potential defendants, he has no redeeming qualities.

However, we need to remember that grand juries take a long time to examine the evidence and pass down indictments. It could be months before we see any action. And, their activities are done in private, so we don't even know for sure if Trump is the primary target. (In theory we could see indictments against others in the Trump klan, such as Trump Jr. or Ivanka, but they might not bring indictments against Trump if they don't have the required evidence.)

Anyone interested might want to listen to the Legal Eagle youtube channel (I've mentioned it before in this forum). One of his recent postings discusses the NY Grand jury, what's involved, and what the results might be.

I've been reading on it also.  Seems like something is there but the scope of the case probably says that he'll be dead before anythig is resolved.  Like his hero Roy Cohn, he will leave a giant mess when he dies and his kids will be sorting it out forever.

And, worse, he will remain a hero to people who don't have a clue.

Your pessimism is warranted... legal cases can often take a long time to resolve, and there are certain delaying tactics/appeals that can be applied. And, Trump doesn't exactly lead a very healthy lifestyle.

On the other hand, Trump does have decent health care available to him (which might keep him alive long enough to face actual prison time). And even if he dies before he sees the inside of a cell, seeing him tied up in the court system for years will provide a certain amount of satisfaction.

Plus, that 'giant mess' he leaves when he dies could end up seeing Trump Jr., Eric and Ivanka jailed as well (who are likely engaged in criminal activity as well).
