I think they accepted long ago that there's just no defending the indefensible. Who knows? Maybe they've even flipped!

Not suggesting anything for one minute, but soon after Rudy's sweaty press conference is news that his son Andrew, who works in the White House, has tested positive for Covid-19.

What concerns me is that Trump knows so many state secrets that he may use his knowledge to gain access to monies to repay his debts.Russia for instance?

That fear has been expressed, and I think it highly likely. Why wouldn't he, knowing everything we know about him? It could be argued that he's already the greatest traitor in American history, and I'm sure he wouldn't think twice about it if it got him out of the enormous hole he's in. Who knows if it hasn't been going on already, for that matter?

Listened to Americast yesterday, which I find one of the best podcasts around at the moment. A very clued-up Georgian local pundit gave the interesting view that Trump’s insistence that the election was rigged will certainly cause many voters not to bother to vote in the January state senate elections, which will hopefully give the Democrats the senate majority they seek.

That’s the one useful thing about Trump’s stupidity. He’s totally incapable of thinking through actions and consequences.

Exactly Mervin,

He is out to get some state elections overturned, therefore any elected Republican Senators/congressmen in those states, will also get there seats overturned. Don’t think they will to happy about that.

Er...

https://eu.jsonline.com/story/news/politics/elections/2020/11/22/attorney-heading-up-trump-recount-wants-throw-out-his-own-vote/6382647002/

The attorney leading President Donald Trump’s recount effort in Wisconsin voted illegally according to his own legal argument that in-person absentee ballots should be thrown out. So did his wife.

Jim Troupis, a former Dane County judge and Cross Plains attorney who is representing the Trump campaign, would not answer questions about why he and his wife voted that way.

Fortunately that doesn't matter now. Michigan has certified Biden's win and the GSA has finally - finally! - ratified his overall victory, thus setting in motion the formal transition, Trump concession or no Trump concession.

The world can breathe something of a sigh of relief, although I suspect that Trump still has a few wrecking ball moves to play yet.

Probably the closest we're going to get to a Trump concession - via Twitter, naturally:

I want to thank Emily Murphy at GSA for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our Country. She has been harassed, threatened, and abused – and I do not want to see this happen to her, her family, or employees of GSA. Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail! Nevertheless, in the best interest of our Country, I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same.

Not actually his own words, I'm sure, with just a single STRONGLY thrown in there to make it look authentically Trumpian, but never mind that now. It says what it needs to say.

I've been doing my best to allow others to gloat, that I may remain aloof and immune to the grubbiness I espy far below.

But what's that you say? You want another hilarious YouTube clip exposing the charlatans and scam-artists who dupe the credulous for money and power? Oh, very well... but it's against my high principles, you understand.

For those that are interested, here are the 2 big lawsuits recently submitted by Sidney Powell. I don't watch the news much tbh but I haven't seen or heard these mentioned anywhere; all I see and hear are complaints about the lack of evidence.

It'll be interesting to see the way this goes.
