We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

You lost me at Kevin Williamson. He is an irrelevant tool of the elites in America, mocking and deriding blue collar and working class Americans. He is another soon forgotten useful idiot writing for a publication on life support. Screw his fat ass
He cited numerous conspiracy theories and had to throw in Qanon which is the classic technique, i.e. you complain about voter fraud and someone declares that you are a racist so now the debate is about your racism. But look at some of the conspiracy theories he didn't want to talk about, like Obama being born in Kenya for example. Obama SAID he was born in Kenya in his first book. It was only after he thought there was a chance to run for president that he began to cover it up. His aunt IN KENYA said she was present at his birth. His Hawaii birth certificate is a phony, literally everything that could be incorrect on it is in fact incorrect. Something is rotten in his birth story but they are so desperate to discredit anyone who questions the birth place must be labeled a kook. Why not just prove he was born in Hawaii. Why are ALL his records sealed??? We do know that when he went to college he claimed to be a foreigner (born in another country). Was he lying then or is he lying now?
This is the Dumbest Coup:
Pap written for the Prog Minions reassuring them that the Working Middle is too stupid to manage their own lives or hear different points of view. The smarmy, juvenile fixation on Trump is typical, lest the Snowflakes realize that it's not about Trump, at all. It's deflection from the reality that Middle America rejects the Prog vision of a paternalistic future that benefits the cocooned and privileged; the rest of us not so much. Let me help you out . Regular Americans don’t want to give up their heritage and rights, they don’t want a top down government and economy run by unaccountable, China/globalist appeasing bureaucrats. What the Progs offer isn't even socialism, which, at least purports to benefit labor; it's some sort of globalist corporatism, crony capitalism on steroids, or maybe post socialism. Whatever it is, it is not benign; it's creepy and dystopian for the people of Middle America.
Almost 75 million people voted for Trump, why shouldn't he fight back, given the suspicious nature of the 2020 election? Middle America expects him to go the distance and not roll over like a Romney, or a McCain, not that either of them would have taken up the mantle for Working People or Main Street.
Donald Trump is what happens when both major parties abandon the lower and middle classes to their fates in the name of open borders and globalization. And, then lie about it.
Boston Dynamics' Robot Dog Starts New Work On BP Oil Rig
Just what we need, something else to take the jobs of the people. Some of us knew it would be bad when they sent all of the manufacturing to China and thank God Trump has tried to bring those jobs back. Now a robotic dog to take another person's job, maybe an army of robots to take all of the jobs.
Subsidizing of the elite, it's a bit generous to call them elite. I actually have some compassion for all the chumps that bought into a way overpriced "college education"; it was a scam especially all the bogus degrees in "studies". At the end of the day, it's just a cost shifting scam, part and parcel of the bailout of corrupt public sector pension funds, that you are soon to be on the hook for.
How To Grow Old: It's Google. I don't DO Google. I'm already "old", and all I can say is, GET OFF MY LAWN. (I've always wanted to say that.)
Cancel student-loan debt? That’s making the working class subsidize the elite! Rebellion of the masses coming up in one, two, three...
The return of lockdown lunacy: See comment above.
Hillary Clinton is not happy with how 2020 is going: I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo not bummed.
The Dumbest Coup: Well, it's from National Review, which shot off every foot of the NR's staff in 2015, and I wiped their dust off my feet and never looked back.
NOT SUSPICIOUS AT ALL: Dominion Voting Systems Execs Fail to Appear for Testimony; Office Shuttered, Websites and Social Media Erased
Now it appears their offices have been shuttered and top brass are in the wind.
And after Rudy’s and Sydney’s press conference, “smart” people were expecting (hoping) Dominion to sue them for defamation!
It’s hard to sue people when you’re busy running for cover like roaches when the lights are turned on.
One happy thought: Hillary Clinton will never be president.
I bet she is extremely bitter and angry at the Democratic Party for not cheating on this scale for her.
I see BP is up to their old tricks, doing incredibly stupid things at great expense trying to look trendy and hip. Guess what? Offshore production platforms are already incredibly automated. They have things called Control Rooms located in fire and blast-proof safe havens on the upwind side of these platforms - plus a thing called instrumentation and automation, to read operational parameters and monitor for fire, smoke, and gas releases, while they produce. It's Amazing! People can control the platform in complete safety, and with modern satellite telecommunications, the engineers can even do it remotely while they wait in line at Starbucks, using their Smart Phones. But - you be you, BP. Mobilize the robots. Don't forget the team of technicians that go with it. You'll probably have to squeeze out some maintenance personnel to make bedspace for them out there, but - what could go wrong with a little less maintenance on high-pressure production equipment in a salt water setting, amirite?
Why am I not surprised?
Nurse Who Claimed Dying COVID Patients Filled With ‘Anger And Hate’ Appears To Have Embellished Story
After Doering’s appearance on CNN, which led many to question the validity of her claims and at the very least suggest CNN did absolutely no verification before inviting her on to speak, RedState’s Hounsell looked into the South Dakota coronavirus numbers and found Doering’s claims to be farfetched.
“Nurse Doering, a Marquette grad and licensed Certified Nurse Practitioner (CNP) lives in a little town called Woonsocket, in Sanborn County. Sanborn County has had just one COVID-19 death since the beginning of the pandemic, according to South Dakota’s COVID-19 statistics website, which provides data from all the different regions and counties in South Dakota, and USFacts.org. That death occurred in October,” Hounsell reported.
Hounsell spoke to the marketing lead at Huron Regional Medical Center, where Doering “has worked, at times, on the COVID-19 unit in the hospital.” That person told Hounsell that only six people died with COVID-19 during the entire outbreak, while 22 died in Beadle County where the hospital is located. HRMC currently has six non-critical COVID-19 patients, with only one in the Intensive Care Unit and none on ventilators, according to South Dakota’s COVID-19 statistics website.
“Of the six deaths identified, RedState was able to determine that one was the tragic case of a 21-year-old mother of three who died back in May. Without revealing the identity of the mother, RedState has determined that she likely was not a patient who denied the existence of the virus. That leaves us with five patients that died at the hospital since the beginning of the outbreak, whom we have not been able to identify. RedState was not able to determine whether or not Doering was working at the time of any of the deaths. She could have been there for all five, or there for none of them. The narrative that Doering appeared to be weaving does is not supported by the facts,” Hounsell reported.
The right thing to do in the five swing states where clearly election fraud on a massive scale took place, would be to have a "redo" on the presidential election. Hold it on Jan 5th, all votes in person with ID. Simple ballot; choose "R" or "D" and drop the ballot in a box (just like the way we used to do it. The only way to force this to happen is a SCOTUS decision that the elections in those states were invalid and must be repeated or the state not counted.
Of course I know this won't happen. It would take some balls to do the right thing at this point and we all know there is only one person in our entire federal and state elite leaders and that is Trump. So, because no one will step up and fix this colossal disaster it will be shoved down the throat of some 78 million Trump voters. Will they just accept it? If not will my suggested solution be way better than what will result from kicking this can down the road?
Re: The Dumbest Coup
Rather than ask whether conspiracy kookery is relevant to Republican politics at this moment, it would be better to ask if there is anything else to Republican politics at this moment.
Neither I nor anybody else I know in the Republican Party is a conspiracy kook, we're all just your standard racists, Nazis, and white supremacists, as well as all being inbred toothless knuckle-dragging morons.
Maggie's Farm commenters are now reinforcing each other in their conspiracy beliefs.
This is America. Actual evidence is needed. There is no clear fraud on a massive scale. Obama's publisher made the claim - Obama never did. There are plenty of reasons for Dominion to not try and litigate in the press, and none of the Trump lawsuits make any claims against them.
And then there's just being insulting about people you disagree with, sans facts.
There are large numbers of people who showed up to vote and were told that they already voted by mail. That is proof of fraud. There were thousands perhaps tens of thousands of mail in ballots that were supposedly stamped by the post office and returned before the date that they were mailed. Again proof of voter fraud. There was a conspiracy in four separate states to shut down the count in the middle of the night AND then had tens and even hundreds of ballots dropped of by unknown people from unknown sources and inexplicably all the ballots only voted for Biden. Clearly fraud. Numerous cases in multiple precincts and multiple states the vote counters were told to violate the laws and count unsigned mail in ballots. Clear fraud. There were multiple cases of the post office workers back dating the stamped date on envelopes so that they could be counted. clear examples of fraud.
You have to ask yourself if you are denying fraud because you are unaware of it or do not believe what you have seen OR you are denying it because you are in favor of it and applaud it. Your choice.
Having said this I do not think Trump will beat this massive criminal conspiracy. The laws are intentionally in favor of voter fraud and have been for perhaps a 100 years or more. But that is not something to celebrate because there are 74,000,000 people who are really pissed and many of them will convert that anger into action. Their vote was stolen! Their country is being stolen! Some of them will take action. This could be the worst four years in our history since the civil war. All because the global elite want to steal our country.
Remember too that because of covid, or more correctly because of the way the governors dealt with covid in the next year or two literally hundreds of thousands of people will go bankrupt losing their businesses and homes. This alone is enough to push many over the edge never mind having their country stolen from them.
Too all those complicit in this greatest crime of the century I hope you enjoy your celebration and the next four years. It is going to be a shit storm...
If Dominion is suspected of aiding other parties perpetrating federal election fraud would it be Trump or the government itself seeking action against them?
Staying away from Dominion for the moment...
What is the benign reason for stopping the vote count? Why was Trump ahead before and behind or barely ahead after? (Coordinated)
How does it happen that batch of 130,000 ballots were for Biden and not one for Trump?
Why were Republican observers kept at a distance or not given access at all to the counting areas - in several big Democrat cities? (Institutionalized)
There were instances were the exact same number of votes (to six digits) were entered for Biden and Trump (Trump get the lesser, of course) twice.
How many dead people voted?
How many told workers to (and how) to commit voter fraud? (Institutionalized)
How many precincts or even counties had 100% voter participation? Was it only Wisconsin that had 90% voter participation?
Several people swear that they saw vans deliver votes while the counting was stopped.
Between those and the ones that OneGuy mentioned, there is more than enough to change the results.
Now, a few comments about Dominion and several other voting systems:
One of its features is the ability to reassign, delete, and weight votes.
If it is for counting, why does it represent votes as floating point values?
People have sworn that voting machines were connected to the internet.
Dominion software was developed originally for Hugo Chavez. People have sworn that its “features” were used to give Chavez his victory.
Clearly there is a lot of potential for serious fraud. We’ll have to see what Sidney Powell eventually produces but I’m curious why people expect her to give her case away before she goes to court.
It sickens me to see what National Review has become. I was a subscriber all the way back to when they had the "transogram
' on the back page. Now it might as well be Mother Jones.
Conservatives have never conserved anything.
One very important point in this election fraud fight. For the left it is all fun and games, they just keep delaying and the clock keeps running. Every lawsuit is judge shopped to get a left leaning activist judge and of course the lawsuit is thrown out. BUT the first time that a circuit court declares the election null and void and must either be thrown out or re-voted and everything changes. Then you will see the left all assholes and elbows trying to get the case in front of SCOTUS. And SCOTUS is an unknown. If the circuit court opinion is well written AND provides a remedy, i.e. re-vote before Jan 20th, then it is a difficult lift for SCOTUS to overturn that decision. So when the case is quickly thrown out at the state level this gives the Trump attorneys the green light to bring it before the Circuit Court and that is where the sausage will be made.
That leaves only one box:
There is a scene in the movie Patriots where Mel Gibson who is a pacifist suddenly 'gets it'. One son is taken away to be tried and hung and the other is shot dead right in front of him. That would do it for most people. But real life is different. The bad guys didn't just fall off the turnip wagon. This will be a slow process of boiling the frog. Some people may never 'get it'. They will boil slowly until it is too late.
