curiously, lots of Trump supporters believe that the SCOTUS is in on the steal as well.

Quote
“It’s clear the election has been stolen,” said Mark Paul Jones of Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania, who sported a tricorner Revolutionary War hat as he walked toward the Supreme Court with his wife.

Trump “is being railroaded out of office,” he said, adding that Biden won with the complicity of the Supreme Court, FBI, Department of Justice and CIA. The Supreme Court “didn’t even take the time to hear the case,” Jones said.

I've have to wonder if the US will split in half somehow.    As long as the smaller population in rural states can enable control of the senate for the Republicans the US seems to be stuck in this gridlock.

Moments like this make absolutely love conspiracy theories. Somehow the Biden campaign got Democrat and Republican governors, legislatures, supreme courts, federal courts full of Trump appointees, postal workers, poll workers, and the conservative-dominated US Supreme Court to all work together to get the win for Biden.  Of course if the DNC had so much control over the election, why would they rig up a win by a margin of just a few thousand votes in strategic states?

These ignorant folks are alleging the most complex and diabolical election fraud in a century, but next week they'll harp on how the Democrats are too incompetent to run the country.

I just keep saying, if we had really cheated, McConnell would have lost his election, too.
You just don't get it, right?

That is a trick! A HUGE trick! That was intentional, so that the cheating Dems could say: "See McConnel? We don't cheat!" It's devilish!
It's amazing. If you start with the answer and work backwards it all makes sense!

OMG, it never ends!

What do you think about this?

Alternate electors are kind of like Alternative Facts.

At what point do those in congress cross a line at which their collective actions are conspiracy against the state. Attempting to overturn a fair election seems a pretty grievous act, and one that in a perfect world would not go unanswered. Senators have been kicked out of congress before, through that was after CIvil War hostilities had started, and when Mitch McConnell wasn't the majority leader in the Senate.

We have already crossed that point. In the scenarios where there were "legitimate" "Alternate Electors" that led to a legitimate constitutional crisis with unclear legal results, one slate of electors was appointed by the Governor according to the previous laws and results of the vote and the other slate of electors was appointed by the Legislature "because we can". That hasn't happened anywhere, no one has appointed these guys as Electors. They're just a bunch of idiots running around cosplaying as Electors. It would be funny in a sad way if it wasn't done with the traitorous intent of overthrowing the US Government.

Electoral college officially called it for Biden with 302 votes today. Curious what shenanigans are next on that front.
... and Barr tendered his resignation today, effective on 12/23 "to spend time with his family." I'm sure this had nothing to do with his not having a press conference on Nov 1 about Hunter Biden.

Every morning I eagerly look up Heather Cox Richardson’s daily letter to update me on the shenanigans and put it all into historical context.

Poor lady deserves a break one day soon. She has been burning a lot of midnight oil keeping up with this administration’s nonsense.

I wonder what changed his mind? He spent the last year being Trump's hype-man and attack dog, but then right before the election decides to start acting like a real law enforcement leader?

I'd like to think at some point most people have lines they won't cross - i.e. everyone's fear about the SC that Trump picked ruling for him in a "contested election" not coming remotely to pass.

I suspect he was given the option to resign if he wrote an appropriately obsequious letter.

Was there going to be so much meaningful work for those last four weeks anyway that staying on for it would be interesting to Barr?

What an odd way to frame the situation. Do AGs normally resign a month before the end of their term? No they don't, they normally stay to the end. So why are you trying to frame it as normal for him to quit a month away from the end?

I agree with Omy, he sees clearly that a) the election is over and b) that Trump is only going to escalate, and he wants to get out before any outright treason occurs.

He isn't willing to do Trump's bidding on *everything*, but he is willing to step aside and give him free reign...

Indeed reading these posts, I can only conclude it's not Barr's mind that changed, but that of the outgoing President.

It’s not at all unusual for executive branch appointees to resign during lame duck sessions, particularly when they have no intention to no chance of staying on in the new administration.  In many ways its the preferred situation, where the acting head is free to ‘clear the decks’ for the incoming appointee.

Barr had a snowball’ss chance of remaining in the new administration, and Trump had little use for him after the election.  I’m sure Barr wanted out just as much as Trump and Biden wanted him gone - though it is notable that Trump has managed to say glowing things about him (“...and outstanding job!”) days after being hyper-critical of his performance as AG.

It's interesting that he offered to take a psychiatric test out of the blue. The level of projection from Trump and his cult members is fascinating.

We're nowhere near out of the woods.

Former Houston Police Captain Arrested In Alleged Scheme To Prove ‘Voter Fraud’

Quote
A former Houston Police Captain was arrested Tuesday after allegedly running a man off the road and restraining him with a pistol in an attempt to prove a nonexistent massive voter fraud scheme in Harris County in exchange for more than $250,000, prosecutors said.

According to an affidavit describing the incident, Former Houston Police Capt. Mark Anthony Aguirre told police that he was a member of a group of private citizens called "Liberty Center for God & Country," and that he and his friends had been conducting 24-hour surveillance on the victim's home.
-----
Aguirre claimed to believe the victim was hiding about 750,000 fraudulent ballots within his truck and home, with Hispanic children being used to sign the ballots because their fingerprints would not appear in any databases, according to prosecutors.

Whaaa?!? There are a couple things wrong with this story.

1) The claim was about an assembly line of kids signing fake ballots in an HVAC guy's house and the cops searched the victim's home and truck. Is that all it takes? Some former cop telling current cops some cray cray story and you're being frisked, held, and searched?

That's like customs searching incoming ships for ballots from North Korea based on a tweet from Sidney Powell.

2) Also, why did it take so long to arrest him?

I hope the HVAC guy sues the former cop for $250k.

He needs to sue for a hell of a lot more in damages, and sue both the former cop and the group that paid him.

And cops tend to protect their own. Hence why it took so long for an arrest in George Floyd's broad-daylight murder.

We will probably see more of this coming out of the fever swamps. Remember Pizzagate, where a guy shot up a pizza parlor believing that there was a sex trafficking ring being run out of the basement and associated with HRC? I think the growth and mainlining of platforms like Parler will breed a lot more of this, and worse.

One of the funniest parts of that ridiculous story is that he tried to open a locked closet door with a butter knife because he thought it was the entrance to the basement. The knife didn't work so he shot the lock. (Inside the closet was the computer server handling pizza orders.)

There's certainly a "played too many FPS games" aspect of this movement.

And in the "shot yourself in the foot there, buddy" news of the day:

Mar-a-Lago neighbors to Trump: Spend your post-presidency elsewhere

Quote
That message was formally delivered Tuesday morning in a demand letter delivered to the town of Palm Beach and also addressed to the U.S. Secret Service asserting that Trump lost his legal right to live at Mar-a-Lago because of an agreement he signed in the early 1990s when he converted the storied estate from his private residence to a private club. The legal maneuver could, at long last, force Palm Beach to publicly address whether Trump can make Mar-a-Lago his legal residence and home, as he has been expected to do, when he becomes an ex-president after the swearing-in of Joe Biden on Jan. 20.
------
The current residency controversy tracks back to a deal Trump cut in 1993 when his finances were foundering, and the cost of maintaining Mar-a-Lago was soaring into the multimillions each year. Under the agreement, club members are banned from spending more than 21 days a year in the club’s guest suites and cannot stay there for any longer than seven consecutive days. Before the arrangement was sealed, an attorney for Trump assured the town council in a public meeting that he would not live at Mar-a-Lago.

I hope those Palm Beach people are going to fight for what is right. He knows the agreement but as usual, never wants to abide by the rules. From what I read somewhere else too, is that Melania's parents either live there now or will be living there. Same deal for them. Nobody is supposed to stay more than 21 days a year or more than 7 days in a row. The helicopter pad at Mara Lago is supposed to be ripped up as soon as he is done being president. The neighbors are sick of the noise. Knowing the way Trump is, he will refuse to have the pad ripped out.

I mean, I guess if I had to wash out that much hair spray and spray tan/stage makeup every day, I'd want high pressure too...

But I'm not that vain or spoiled.

This was obviously a much bigger priority than working on some sort of covid response.  And look at the results!

All he does is project.  You can all but guarantee that anytime he rails about anything it's directly related to him.  "people" are flushing 10, 15 times?  That means he does.  Biden's family is corrupt? That means his is corrupt.  The election is rigged and democrats stole it?  That means he cheated and tried to rig it, and now he's pissed that despite that he still lost.

See also: Trump admin downplaying of virus, muzzling of the scientific community, pushes to open schools early, etc. 15,000 Americans are dying of this every week. How's that working our for us? I don't know if outrageous even comes close to describing their handling of the pandemic.

Agreed. When you're as full of shit as he is, it probably takes 10-15 flushes.

We're nowhere near out of the woods.

Former Houston Police Captain Arrested In Alleged Scheme To Prove ‘Voter Fraud’

Quote
A former Houston Police Captain was arrested Tuesday after allegedly running a man off the road and restraining him with a pistol in an attempt to prove a nonexistent massive voter fraud scheme in Harris County in exchange for more than $250,000, prosecutors said.

According to an affidavit describing the incident, Former Houston Police Capt. Mark Anthony Aguirre told police that he was a member of a group of private citizens called "Liberty Center for God & Country," and that he and his friends had been conducting 24-hour surveillance on the victim's home.
-----
Aguirre claimed to believe the victim was hiding about 750,000 fraudulent ballots within his truck and home, with Hispanic children being used to sign the ballots because their fingerprints would not appear in any databases, according to prosecutors.

Wow, these people are completely insane. The worst part might be that HPD proceeded to search the victim's property for evidence of this crazy theory.

Waiting to hear when the governor/Lt governor offers Aguirre a medal or to pay his legal fees.

Japanese women before the invention of the sound princess (otohime).

I don't know if Trump has one, but if he has, with all his shit the poor lady has to be freed because of overtime violations.

Finally, some good news!

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/12/17/nuclear-agency-hacked-officials-inform-congress-447855

Oh wait, that's bad news.

Maybe Trump should have appointed someone to head the DOE who didn't advocate for it to be abolished.

Tens of thousands of govt agencies and private companies compromised in the same attack.  Scary nonetheless.

I think very little of the blame can be allocated to Trump or his appointees in this case. Supply-chain attacks are incredibly difficult for the end user to defend against or detect, and this sounds like a very sophisticated one.

A supply-chain attack is when a legitimate company that you buy software from is compromised, and then they ship something to you to that lets the hacker into your system too. Imagine Microsoft was hacked and then one of the Windows Updates included the hacker's code that let them in to your computer. How would you even know anything was wrong? You were doing everything right, even keeping your system up to date with security updates.

Edit: Of course, the fact that the White House seems to be completely uninterested in doing anything about it can be blamed on Trump. "Stunning", according to Mitt Romney.
