    This is beginning to feel like a scripted narrative in hopefully only 3 (?)acts .
    We are just waiting to find out if its more ‘The persecution & assasination of Trump as performed by the inmates of the asylum of Charenton under the direction of the Marquis de Sade’ or the more uplifting very first Star Wars film. That latter meme of the Deathstar being destroyed is coming up a lot on various platforms in the last few days strangely enough…with the Deathstar being obviously you know what…

    With those battle line states’ legislatures all starting hearings on the validity of the vote count in each state over the next few days, its seems that a Contingent Election in the US congress is the to be expected destination & conveniently enough those guidelines were updated just over 7 weeks back.

    There is just no way that both sides havent been wargaming this for at least the last 2 to 3 years.
    The fact that Trump signed that executive order with those dire sanctions re foreign interference in (literally any)!!! US election back in sept 2018 shows a level of prescience that leaves me feeling rather humble given the power of the FISA court to surveil literally anyone in cahoots with nefarious foreigners …& has kept me off the ledge & still hopeful …but literally anything can still happen..

    Good post Shane. I don’t have the time or stamina to keep up with the other US election post mortem threads, but from what I’ve seen and read this has been like a Clancy or le Carre novel on steroids. Huge stakes and a lot to play out yet.

    Skewers Biden and Muntifa!

    “Picking his Cabinet”???

    Poor Old Joe couldn’t pick his nose unless the teleprompter instructed him how – and even then, he’d need a week of rehearsals.

    As I said on the other thread, the Penn judgement has already been appealed to the PA Supreme Court, which is controlled by the Dems. This particular one may not be able to go to SCOTUS either, since it is to do with the PA constitution.

    ‘…the Penn judgement has already been appealed to the PA Supreme Court, which is controlled by the Dems. This particular one may not be able to go to SCOTUS either, since it is to do with the PA constitution.’

    The State Legislature can overrule the Supreme Court regarding appointing their electors to the Electoral College.
    Just watching the PA Senate Election hearing, they seem to be really pissed.

    What we are seeing is the clearing of the political decks to facilitate the declaration of a tainted ballot and the State Legislatures exercising their Constitutional authority to appoint the Electoral College.

    After one state opts for this, it will become much easier (politically) for States in similar positions to do likewise.

    Kameldung hasn’t resigned from the Senate yet, she doesn’t believe the media call also. Barry resigned less than two weeks after the 2008 election.

    Whatever the MSM/social media narrative is, my sources still say this is very much still un-decided, but it has been sobering to see just how tightly the information flow can be controlled to the masses – everyone just assumes its over, move on etc etc.

    What happens if the Donald wins in his efforts, but the MSM just doesnt cover it and continues to tell us Sleepy Joe is President?

  9. Rorschach

    What happens if the Donald wins in his efforts, but the MSM just doesn’t cover it and continues to tell us Sleepy Joe is President?

    More like that the MSM will provide wall to wall coverage to tell us that Donald defrauded / stole / broke democracy. And why a lot of businesses that boarded up prior to election have not removed the boards.

    The PA legislature (GOP controlled) makes the call and they are currently auditing, holding an enquiry.

    Over the past four years the number of crimes that were committed by the Obama/Clinton gang, have been exposed and just dismissed. The only people who have suffered have been President Trump, his family and people in his Administration. This time as a result of further crimes, an imposter may be installed as the next Leader of the free World. They got away with it last time. If they get away with it this time then President Trump will have himself to blame. The evidence appears to be there and he has a duty to protect all those who have supported him because if he doesn’t expose the lot and act accordingly, God help us.

    That’s a bit unfair Joanna. One of the problems Trump has had is subordinates have been refusing to follow his legal orders. Recently he ordered declassification of a lot of stuff, but it didn’t happen because the people who do that are Wray and Haspel, who are playing for the other side.

    Eight years of Obama cemented control of the upper echelons of the agencies. So there was basically no way to appoint anyone with sufficient experience to the top jobs without them being a swamp critter.

    The blame entirely lies with the Democrats and the Left, not Trump.

  13. Joanna Smythe

    Bruce, yes it would appear that Trump has been allowed a little bit of authority but only what the Democrats have allowed him to have. We can see now who has really been in control all this time, right.

    Joanna – All you have to do is look at the Durham, Huber, Sessions and Barr stuff. The illegality of Spygate is obvious yet in four years nothing much has happened despite strong pushing from Trump. Recently the DoD guy even boasted that they hid troop numbers in Syria from Trump. That is sedition, yet they get away with it because there is such a strong level of control in the system. It’s not called the deep state for nothing.

    Trump has gotten stuff done by drawing upon his experience doing business in the notoriously corrupt Democrat cities of New York and Atlanta – the art of the deal, outflanking strategies on things like wall funding and the Abraham Accords. Legally there are ways and there are ways, if you are good enough, which Trump is. But that indirect approach can go only so far, and he’s had very little solid support from subordinates. Guys like Tillerson, Kelly, Mattis and Bolton even undermined him.

    Lincoln was in a similar bind for a long time during the Civil War. He had to sack general after general until he finally found one who would fight. Trump has fired some people, but unlike Lincoln he is not so free to appoint people – they have to be confirmed in the Senate. Which has been slow-walking confirmations for most of his Presidency.

    There’s a feel of inevitability in all of this. Azimov invoked this in Foundation with the idea of psychohistory. That was about the seeming unstoppable decline of the Roman Empire. The same principles are at work here, with Trump being the modern Belisarius.

    Below is a quote from author and physicist Brian Clegg which you may find of interest.
    “Will the American Empire Follow the Romans?
    Do the recent political upheavals mean that what many regard as the American Empire will collapse as Asimov portrayed in his books? Not necessarily. We have, if anything, the opposite problem to that faced by Rome and Asimov’s galactic empire. In our world, communications happen far faster than ever before. So fast that our traditional mechanisms of monitoring and assessing behavior have simply been left behind. Mathematics will always be essential in predicting future outcomes. But the recent results have shown that without a better understanding of people, and the variables in play in today’s world, our mathematical models can prove useless.” More here https://www.thehistoryreader.com/world-history/asimov-empire/

    If you look outside the MSM, a few things seem to be happening today. The Legal Team are releasing data, Sidney is supposed to be releasing her Kraken tonight. It won’t be reported of course but it’s there. Today there is hope but tomorrow who knows. If nothing else comes of all this, President Trump owes it to his loyal supporters to release everything. Donald Trump and his Team have nothing to lose but the rest of us are looking at a dark future.

  18. Bruce of Newcastle

    Mem – That’s a fun one! Dr Clegg says it’s the opposite of the Roman problem of unwieldy communications, whereas what I see is it’s the same problem. We have instant communication but no transmittal because of the censors. We saw this during the election that a large part of the population never heard of the Hunter Biden stuff. They just didn’t ever see it because it was never transmitted to them.

    17% of Biden voters would have changed their minds (26 Nov)

    A new survey conducted by The Polling Company for the Media Research Center (MRC) found that major media censorship of certain vital stories left voters in the dark, particularly Biden voters, and prevented President Donald Trump from winning a second term.

    Impeding the flow of information, and controlling it, is the essence of the current decline of the US. The climate change thing is an example – the real world data shows nothing much is occurring, but that information can’t get past the censors. So the barbarians and corruptocrats of the Left can get their way without outrage from the voters.

    The Legal Team are releasing data, Sidney is supposed to be releasing her Kraken tonight.

    Let’s hope that the Kraken amounts to something and that this squid isn’t just a damp squib.
