Oh my. Rather damning.

Still, expect the usual “but Democrats…laptop…November…look a squirrel!” from the peanut gallery.

Among the ideas: naming fake slates of electors in seven swing states, declaring martial law and seizing voting machines.

Most of the GOP slate is so repulsive and their ideas so bankrupt ( still hawking that trickle down scheme) they are resorting to these measures to hold onto power.

The only thing they have going for them is the useful idiocy of the neo-liberal Democratic establishment doing their best to marginalize their own wildly popular populist wing (Bernie Sanders).

As well as the Evangelical base of the GOP and of course the fat cat corporatocracy pumping money into propagandizing their beloved "low-information" voters.

Scum of the earth, all of them!!!

A coup in plain sight....the Republican Party (most of it) collaborating and scheming with the Trump administration to overrule the popular vote with a series of criminal acts....

Despite the warning from the counsel's office, Trump's allies moved forward. On Dec. 14, 2020, as rightly chosen Democratic electors in seven states — Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — met at their seat of state government to cast their votes, the fake electors gathered as well.

They declared themselves the rightful electors and submitted false Electoral College certificates declaring Trump the true winner of the presidential election in their states.

And there it is - in black and white - "fake electors" and "phony certification certificates".... None of them appointed by the state election boards....none of the lists certified by the Governors....

They were "made up"...."fabricated"..."illegitimate"...

This is clear evidence that Trump and his team attempted to pervert the Constitution and deny the will of the people...the first ever attempted coup in our nation's history...

And it perfectly explains Trump's heartfelt admiration for Putin and Xi....

“As the mob smashed our windows, bloodied our police and stormed the Capitol, Trump and his accomplices plotted to destroy Biden’s majority in the electoral college and overthrow our constitutional order,” Raskin tweeted last week.

Wasn't too long ago liberal progressive extremists were upset at Trump's use of the word "thugs" to describe BLM "protesters", but it is acceptable by the left to throw around the word "mob" to describe protesters who felt an election was not held properly and took out their frustrations on a government building as opposed to private businesses, homes, automobiles . . .

‘Thugs’ and ‘mob’ are different words used in different contexts. I’m sure you understand this because you just explained it yourself.

Not sure what your point is here, if you have one.

Oh, you certainly know the point.

Yes, breaking into and ransacking private businesses, committing arson, and shooting civilians is certainly a different context than taking over a government building.

I'm sure you understand this.

Oh my. Rather damning.

How?

Still, expect the usual “but Democrats…laptop…November…look a squirrel!” from the peanut gallery.

Don’t have to, the Dems are doing a fantastic job and politically wrapping that 13th knot.

Most of the GOP slate is so repulsive and their ideas so bankrupt

Not according to every poll conservative, liberal and independent. Why do you think the Dems are for court packing? Because they know they can otherwise never get their toxic policies through.

( still hawking that trickle down scheme) they are resorting to these measures to hold onto power.

Ahhhh, so liberals letting in millions of illegals mostly low-skilled is out of compassionate reasons? Get real.

The only thing they have going for them is the useful idiocy of the neo-liberal Democratic establishment

No, the only thing they have going for them is they will enshrine the 1st and 2nd amendment rights of all Americans, supporting our police, enforcing the law unapologetically, focus on lowering taxes, making us once again energy dependent and canceling CRT. That’s what they’re running on and the Dems (not surprisingly) oppose all of this, so the people are not going to vote for them, it’s that simple. And you don’t need to have graduated from Harvard to understand this.

doing their best to marginalize their own wildly popular populist wing (Bernie Sanders). 

Truthfully, even the Democrats are not ready and willing to back a socialist, will never happen. Even the Dems are not that dumb.

As well as the Evangelical base of the GOP and of course the fat cat corporatocracy pumping money into propagandizing their beloved "low-information" voters.

Look at my home State of California, look at all the high-information voters leaving that State.

These times they are a' changing.

This is the real "woke" as in more and more people are waking up to the propaganda, mainly from the conservative side, that tries to make them vote against their interest and support the corporatocracy.

The Democrats, but especially the Republicans, need to change.

Yeah, that’s what they teach in school, I was like that when I was 18 and when I bought my first business I realized how full of crap my teachers were. I failed their indoctrination attempts.

Until they turn 30 and wake up and realize big government is never your friend.

Yeah, sure and if that were true, Republicans wouldn’t be winning in every single poll.

The Democrats, but especially the Republicans, need to change.

They are and it had to take Trump to make that happen m, they want more money in their pockets, less regulations from big government, less taxes and more people individual independence and the Republicans hate change and Dems are changing as well, they are embracing more of the socialist garbage and the people are thankfully either rejecting it or moving away from it. So yes, both sides are changing.

Funny how the most popular politician among millennials is a 80 year old socialist.

big government is never your friend.

Especially when it is allied with big business.

And there is a reason why for over 50 years he couldn’t get voted into the Presidency.

Especially when it is allied with big business

Which is different from handing out cradle to grave entitlements. Another failure that people are rejecting.

The far-rightists sure fail trying to explain this....

Maybe today?

Despite of course the obvious fact that he didn’t run for the presidency until 6 years ago.

Other than that sure, but it’s the same reason why you didn’t get voted into the Presidency over the past 50 years.

Speaking of election schemes- the one that the Supreme Court leak was trying to cover up- "2020 Mules" is an eye opener. Check it out if you want to be informed.

Thanks for admitting Trump was beaten - why won't he admit it?

Just as long as it is not a group of "thugs" doing the "beating"--liberals would take offense to that term being used--they wouldn't object to the beating of course.

“11 days to 1/6 and 25 days to inauguration," the text read. "We gotta get going!” Perry urged Meadows to call Jeffrey Clark, 

Sounds like a conspiracy!

Projectionism is labeling and ridiculing others for things you do yourself. Dictators like trump use words like 'thugs' while they hire militia crud thugs to terrorize the population. Trump called a military whistleblower criminal a 'traitor who should be executed', well helloooooo....... 'Traitor'? Et tu, brute?

Of course he sasses off about everyone else anyway. But his treason and that of those GOP yes-men is becoming clearer and clearer every day.

I remember growing up and so many celebs slammed Reagan. But RR is spinning in his grave now. And during the 2016 GOP primaries which I saw live on TV, George Bush was in the wheelchair already, wishing he was someplace else. His look said, 'WTF happened to my GOP?'. It must shake off the scourge of Trumpism!
