Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, June 05, 2021

In Donald J. Trump's final weeks in office, Mark Meadows, his chief of staff, repeatedly pushed the Justice Department to investigate unfounded conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election, according to newly uncovered emails provided to Congress, portions of which were reviewed by The New York Times

In five emails sent during the last week of December and early January, Mr. Meadows asked Jeffrey A. Rosen, then the acting attorney general, to examine debunked claims of election fraud in New Mexico and an array of baseless conspiracies that held that Mr. Trump had been the actual victor. That included a fantastical theory that people in Italy had used military technology and satellites to remotely tamper with voting machines in the United States and switch votes for Mr. Trump to votes for Joseph R. Biden Jr.

... people in Italy had used military technology and satellites to remotely tamper with voting machines ...

But I thought it was the Jewish people who were shooting lasers from satellites to start wildfires in California.

I'm waiting for one of Trump's minions to suggest that people in Madagascar tampered with the voting machines...

That would be about as credible as Italy using satellite technology to tinker with the vote count in states like Arizona and Georgia.

I think the purpose behind these super-bizarre voting conspiracies is not the individual conspiracy, but the sheer number of the falsehoods being used to discredit the election process here in the United States.

The Republicans' end goal is to take away the vote from those who tend not to vote for them.

Raising all these crazy conspiracies provides support for the GOP-controlled state legislatures in their efforts to bypass the voting process and have GOP officials determine who won an election.

If Trump will be remembered for one thing, it will be how easily he was able to manipulate the media into giving him free coverage any time he wants or needs it.

As Zorak would say, cut off his oxygen supply.

FTFY - If Trump will be remembered for one thing, it will be how easily he was able to manipulate the GOP and the GOP base.

The media are just reporting what is happening. Fmr Pres Trump and the GOP are the problem, not the media.

There are people who post on this site that still support this madman and would vote for him again. Those people are deranged fools just like Trump.

They're worse than Trump.

They support all the nastiness, corruption and grift that is Trump without any of the benefits.

It's Italy; probably the Jewish Catholics.

Prior to the Orange Dumbass, this type of deranged conspiracy theories would have caused any person running for the nuclear codes to be laughed off the stage.

Now the morons nod in agreement vigorously.

Trumpism is a mental disease.

So it's easier to believe that China printed fake ballots and had them shipped over here all voting for Biden and no reports of duplicate ballots were reported, shipping containers full of ballots were sent from Korea to Philly, millions and millions of illegal immigrants voted without valid social security numbers, the news papers, the radio, the television news, poll watchers, election supervisors, auditors, recounts, secretaries of state, numerous recounts, state judges, state appellate judges, state supreme court judges, federal judges, federal appellate judges, supreme court of the united states, the House of Representatives, the Senate, the Vice President of the United States and now italian satellites were all in on the steal rather than your candidate was a horrible human being who lost.
