Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, April 19, 2022

Fifteen months after they tried and failed to overturn the 2020 election, the same group of lawyers and associates is continuing efforts to "decertify" the vote, feeding a false narrative.

A group of President Donald J. Trump's allies and associates spent months trying to overturn the 2020 election based on his lie that he was the true winner.

Now, some of the same confidants who tried and failed to invalidate the results based on a set of bogus legal theories are pushing an even wilder sequel: that by "decertifying" the 2020 vote in key states, the outcome can still be reversed.

In statehouses and courtrooms across the country, as well as on right-wing news outlets, allies of Mr. Trump --including the lawyer John Eastman--are pressing for states to pass resolutions rescinding Electoral College votes for President Biden and to bring lawsuits that seek to prove baseless claims of large-scale voter fraud. Some of those allies are casting their work as a precursor to reinstating the former president.

The efforts have failed to change any statewide outcomes or uncover mass election fraud. Legal experts dismiss them as preposterous, noting that there is no plausible scenario under the Constitution for returning Mr. Trump to office.

They are priming the pump for 2024.

"The Electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by Ballot for two Persons, of whom one at least shall not be an Inhabitant of the same State with themselves. And they shall make a List of all the Persons voted for, and of the Number of Votes for each; which List they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the Seat of the Government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate. The President of the Senate shall, in the Presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the Certificates, and the Votes shall then be counted. The Person having the greatest Number of Votes shall be the President" - Article II, Section 1 of the US Constitution

Nope, nothing about decertifying votes. These people are anti-American traitors who are attempting to overthrow the Constitution. They should be prosecuted as such.

Hello?!? The coup is ongoing:

Joyce Alene
This is what happens when you don't hold people accountable. They continue to crime.

Michael S. Schmidt
The same gang of Trump cronies who turned a bogus legal theory and disinformation into the Jan 6 attack on the Capitol is back together and running a similar play.

Judge Luttig: "At the moment, there is no other way to say it: This is the clearest and most present danger to our democracy. Trump and his supporters in Congress and in the states are preparing now to lay the groundwork to overturn the election in 2024 were Trump" to lose.

A nationwide, mass delusion was not on my "Living life as an American" bingo card, but here we are.

Total reality meltdown, and nobody on "my side" is doing anything to stop it.

Complete nutters everywhere now. Can't even go anywhere in public without at least some concern that some nutter with a red hat is going to start shouting about demonic space aliens feeding their cannibal pedophile minions with Disney babies. Used to be limited to the homeless people with the Jesus sign and a bullhorn on the corner, now it's everywhere.

Lunatics everywhere, and some of them can even read and write.

Only nominate people who can win and then help their campaigns.

Otherwise the trumpers will win.

I wish that were true. Unfortunately I don't think that would even slow them down. They'd just claim it was the "deep state" persecuting them. Sigh.

Next time around violent mobs will descend on key precincts in battle ground states just before closing time and destroy the ballots and voting/tabulating machine memories. GOP secreteries of state will say it is not possible to get an accurate count and just certify the GOP slate of electors. Problem solved.

As noted in an earlier thread about Eastman trying to alter a certified vote of electors in Wisconsin, he seems impervious to the fact that he's being investigated himself for conspiracy to commit subversion.

He's going way beyond conspiracy now. He's gone full blown subversion.

Somebody should put this guy into protective custody before he works his way into the gas chamber.

I'm sure if there was something wrong our Judicial system would deal with it.

But. Biden, Democrats in Congress, and the DOJ don't seem to care.

So. Guess there's nothing to be concerned about.

Carry on Republicans!
