The Morning Report - 11/18/20


Good morning, kids. Midweek and it serves me right going to bed last night thinking that maybe, just maybe, the good news out of Wayne County, MI was reason to keep hope alive. Instead, I wake up to my guts collapsing and my blood pressure rising.

The Board of Canvassers had originally voted 2-2 along party lines. The tie meant the election results were not certified. But later into the night, the Republican canvassers flipped and voted with the Democrats, while the live video stream was down...

... With the certification by Wayne County, the results will now move to the State Board of Canvassers, which also has two Republicans and two Democrats as members.

Over 100 observers have filed affidavits related to the vote counting process in Detroit. Several individuals have alleged ballots being counted multiple times, ballots arriving in the dead of night, and observers being blocked from watching the tabulation process.

Of course Michigan's completely ethical, impartial, honest-as-the-day-is-long - and Nazi collaborator George Soros bought-and-paid-for - Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson has promised for a complete and fair audit of the results (puke). Look, we all know the score here; the race card aspect, as is always the case is total bullshit, especially in light of the fact that blacks and other minorities came out in record numbers all over the country to carry Trump on their shoulders to victory. It's those blacks who sure as hell are being disenfranchised with this garbage. In any case, being labeled with the race card I don't think necessarily entered into the calculus of the two GOP members of Wayne County's Board of Canvassers. More likely, Monica Palmer and William Hartmann were thinking about themselves and their families winding up in a morgue as victims of Chinese Lung AIDS or blunt force trauma, but mostly blunt force trauma.

Of course as tantalizing as the original news was last night that to that point they were standing firm, at least the other Republican leaders in more solidly GOP counties in the state will not be so easily swayed. Charlie Brown, Lucy, football...

But that wasn't the end of the craziness coming out of Michigan. The State Senate Majority Leader, Mike Shrikey, a Republican, came down strongly on the side of... Joe Biden:
Democrat Joe Biden is the president-elect, and while Michigan's Republican-led Legislature is investigating the election, it will not award the state's 16 electors to GOP President Donald Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey told Bridge on Tuesday.

Hundreds of activists who protested at the Michigan Capitol on Saturday repeated the president's unproven claims of widespread voter fraud, urging lawmakers to "stop the steal" by choosing their own pro-Trump representatives to the Electoral College.

Conservative groups have also started phone and letter-writing campaigns in an attempt to persuade legislative Republicans to decide the election for Trump.

"That's not going to happen," Shirkey, R-Clarklake, said in a wide-ranging interview with Bridge Michigan. He noted state law awards electors to the winner of the state's popular vote. And Biden won the state by more than 146,000 votes, according to unofficial results.

Well, what the actual fuck? For days now, a lot of people have been disparaging of Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Lin Wood and the rest of Team Trump. I am convinced more than ever that they have the evidence and most likely smoking gun evidence to prove that the results in all of the states in question were indeed tampered with, rigged and stolen via Dominion's election stealing software, thousands of phony mail-in ballots before November 3rd as well as the blatant ballot dumping and ejection of observers late that night. The problem was and remains very flawed individuals who either out of moral cowardice, duplicity with the Enemy, understandable fear for their and their families' personal safety or some combination of all of those, will not stand up and do their crystal clear duty and save the nation.

No, I'm not throwing in the towel. I'm just offering up a bite out of a reality sandwich that's impossible to chew, let alone swallow. Again, the evidence has yet to be presented and we'll see what the other counties in Michigan as well as the other states will do, the revolting words of GOP-e "leaders" like Mike Shrikey notwithstanding.

One day at a time. Keep the pressure up (there's a petition in the links), especially if you live in one of the stolen states and keep praying for guidance and deliverance. Not much else we can do.
