The Morning Report - 11/19/20

Good morning, kids. Thursday and, okay, I'm not going to get excited but it is nice to wake up to some good news in the morning and hopefully it won't be fleeting. The two Wayne County, Michigan GOP election canvassers who were subjected to naked terroristic threats and intimidation against them and their families are reportedly reversing their coerced votes to certify the county's election results. If this holds - IF - it is a very big deal. The report broke from Just The News:

Their pronouncements come just 24 hours after a chaotic meeting in which the county's election board initially failed to certify the Nov. 3 election results during a 2-2 deadlocked vote when both Palmer and Hartmann voted against certification. But after hours of contentious public comment and criticism -- including Democratic allegations of racism and threats against their safety -- the two GOP members struck a deal to certify the elections in return for a promise of a thorough audit.

Palmer and Hartmann said Wednesday they learned that state officials had reneged or would not honor the audit, leaving them no recourse but to oppose certification until more investigation could be performed.

It was not immediately unclear[sic] whether the Tuesday night compromise was binding or could be changed, or whether the two members' decision to announce their rescinded votes would stop Michigan state officials from proceeding to name electors.

But both GOP board members said in the affidavits they felt misled and unduly pressured to change their positions the night earlier.

One would think that a signature obtained under duress would be null and void, but given the state of our justice system, especially in jurisdictions controlled by the Enemy, I'm not so sanguine. But on the assumption that Palmer's and Hartmann's rescinding of their votes holds, the certification of the votes of Michigan's largest county cannot legally go forward. And as goes Wayne County, I assume so goes the rest of the state. Let's play this out a little further; if these individuals are acting just based on their own observations of Election Day, you have to wonder what their colleagues as well as the state legislators in Michigan will think when Team Trump officially presents its "kraken" of evidence to them and the courts. And then extrapolate that out to the other states in question.

But I think I am getting ahead of myself. The one very heartening thing that can't be taken away is the courage of Monica Palmer and Phillip Hartmann to do the right thing. The constant stream of incandescent vitriol being hurled at them about "racism" and "disenfranchising" blacks and minorities is a sick joke, considering Trump gained historic levels of black and minority votes all across the nation, and more than likely in Detroit, Atlanta, Philly, Pittsburgh and Milwaukee if we are ever able to toss the hundreds of thousands of fraudulent votes or ones switched via computer from Trump to Biden. As for this slug Abraham Aiyash who doxxed Monica Palmer's children, the book should thrown at him - or his house Rachel Corried - but that's not likely given the times we live in.

In Georgia, unfortunately, the GOP there seems to be making a complete hash of the recount and audit. There is massive evidence of fraud, cheating and malfeasance yet the Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger goes on Fake Yapper's XiNN transmission to crow about his severe conservatism:

"I've been a lifelong Republican," he said. "I'm a conservative Christian Republican. And you look at my voting record. I have been endorsed by pro-life business, pro-business groups, National Federation of Independent Businesses. I'm a business owner. And so, people say that I'm not Republican -- it's crazy talk.

That was after he proclaimed: "We have not seen any widespread voter fraud."

You're a lifelong hack and jackass and Kelly Loefler is right; you should be shitcanned with extreme prejudice. Let's hope that we have more folks in the Georgia state legislature with the attitude of Palmer and Hartmann from Michigan than this fraud. If not, we got trouble in River City.

Contact your state legislators and encourage them to do the right thing, support our legitimate President and keep the faith.

And take off the fucking face diapers. Masks do more harm than good, the morbidity/lethality of this virus is fading away to nil and all this is about seeing who will comply and who will not, making you an easy target for your own neighbors to act as the government's enforcers.

Personally, I'm in the mood for rebellion.
