Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, November 28, 2022

Former President Donald Trump called for defeated Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake to be named victor and appointed governor on Monday while repeating baseless voting fraud conspiracies that he has similarly used to contest his own 2020 defeat. Trump, in a post on Truth Social, claimed without supporting evidence that the former TV news anchor-turned politician was a victim of "another criminal voting operation" and that her Democratic opponent, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, "ran the election."

I'm still waiting for Ms Sidney Powell to ~release the kraken~ (i.e., all the non-existent evidence) from the election fmr Pres Trump said he won and the voters said otherwise.

The Kraken: What is it and why has Trump's ex-lawyer released it? (November 2020)

...The Kraken is a gigantic sea monster from Scandinavian folklore that rises up from the ocean to devour its enemies.

It's also become an internet meme representing a sprawling, unsubstantiated set of claims that purport to outline the case for widespread fraud in the US presidential election.

Pro-Trump groups including QAnon conspiracy theorists have amplified the idea under the hashtag #ReleaseTheKraken, and it's being widely shared by those supporting the legal campaign to challenge the election results.
The 'Kraken' lawyer

Lawyer Sidney Powell - who was until recently part of Donald Trump's legal team and is now acting independently - has described the case she was mounting as a "Kraken" that, when released, would destroy the case for Democrat Joe Biden having won the US presidency....

Unfortunately for Ms Powell...

Sidney Powell And Kraken' Attorneys Must Undergo Legal Education For Attempt To Overturn 2020 Election For Trump (February 2022)

...$175,250.37. That's the exact amount Parker has ordered the nine right-wing attorneys involved with the case to pay in sanctions, with $21,964.75 going to the state of Michigan, on behalf of defendants Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, and $153,285.62 to the city of Detroit. The attorneys won't have to pay that yet, however, as Parker paused the order while the sanctions are being appealed.
Key Background

The Michigan lawsuit was one of four lawsuits Powell brought in battleground states after the 2020 election trying to overturn the results, part of a broader post-election legal campaign waged by Trump and his allies.

The cases alleged widespread fraud and Powell dubbed the blitz of lawsuits "releas[ing] the Kraken" after the 1981 film The Clash of the Titans"though all four legal challenges ultimately failed.

Parker initially dismissed the Michigan lawsuit in December, ruling the complaint was based on "nothing but speculation and conjecture" and did not actually offer proof of election fraud, but rather "an amalgamation of theories, conjecture, and speculation that such alterations were possible."

Powell and her co-counsel have continued to stand behind their litigation, however, saying in a February brief to the appeals court they made "non-frivolous legal claims" and that "millions of Americans believe the central [voter fraud] contentions of the complaint to be true, and perhaps they are." There is no credible evidence to support allegations of widespread fraud in the 2020 election....

Trump demnds Lake be declared the winner sort of like he believes himself to be a dictator like his idol Putin. I love democracy and every American who shares rhat love will understand why we need to prevent Trump from ever being President again. We can be liberal or conservative but still share our love for democracy and respect and accept the outcomes of free and fair elections even when "our side" doesn't win.

Ok sure dotard. She's a winner at losing. First place in the loser category. Such a loser you never saw. So tired of winning that she decided to lose. On purpose. Just to change it up. You have never seen such a loser. People are saying she is the losers of all losers and possibly the most valuable and biggest loser ever. Trust me.

Despite over 60 court cases involved with the theory that the vote was tainted in some way, not one case ever came up with documented evidence to support that theory. Courts deal in facts, not conjecture. What it tells you, isn't that the vote wasn't accurate, it tells you Trump doesn't like to lose and will gaslight to say it isn't true.

But notice one thing, Trump himself has never testified under oath to that claim. He's avoided all possible appearances to prove his claim. It tells you he knows but as long as he's not under oath, he's free to lie his butt off, just like he did so many times as president. They had a running total of the bald faced lies he told during the time he was POTUS. How is this any different? It's what a conman does.

"The GOP has become the Fact-Free Party... evidence?" Brute force knowledge. It is not the same as a fact, but people try to make it real It is like religion but with current events. They think they can yell/scream until we belive them.

Kari Lake and Trump should take their "First Loser" trophies home and STFU.

LAMP, it wasn't 'release the Kraken!', it was
'release the Karen's!' And those, the Right has released
a plenty...

Why, my state of WV is just swamped with big fat
Karen's, red in the face and out of breath, 'railing
about God knows what, and perceived injustices to the right...',
all while shoving Hostess Ho Ho's and grease filled Pizza Rolls
down their big fat gullets...

The fat orange grifting peadofile treasonous ex POTUS probably just wants to-------- with this nutcase woman in Arizona. And at the same time, keep his BS propaganda going so when he runs again he can say the same thing.

I hope Trump has a massive stroke that doesn't kill him. I want him paralyzed and unable to communicate, but not dead.

If reporting from MSNBC is to be believed, the failure of officials in Cochise County, Az. to certify election results may turn some GOP winners in other races into losers. Let's Go Dotard!

"Can You Believe I Lost to This Ef---- Guy?' Trump Knew Biden Won, Aides Testify"

So, Trump did acknowledge he lost the election and rhus all of his claims about election fraud, etc. wer just made up lies to undermine a legitimate election which constitutes sedition. His claims about election fraud were untrue and he knew it which means he incited a violent riot in the Capital with the knowledge that the election was legitimate but he just ---- lost. People died because of his actions. The rioters were hunting for Mike Pence and Nancy Pelosi. He is guilty of criminal conspiracy to overthrow the legitimate government of the United States and should be arrested and tried in court but our God damned AG is too cowardly to do his job. Biden needs to fire him and put someone in that job who will do that job.

"Our problem isn't the Democrats and their "messaging." Our problem is the Republicans. Justice has no place in a society run by people who care only about domination and the will to power.
What used to be called the "authoritarian tendencies" of conservatives have grown unchecked, and the parasite has now completely taken over the host body. American conservatism is an authoritarian movement. The American right has become enthralled with the same idea that has motivated fascists for decades, which is that justice, reason and reality itself do not matter " all that matters is raw power. "

Sure Donnieboy-we'll have whoever has that power to get right on it, and appoint you head of the Vatican in Rome and President for Life in DC while they're at it. Would that do it for you? Maybe they could throw in (not literally, as you prefer) a membership in the tater-tots for life club too!

Oh great now he wants her to get a "participation trophy".

Actually, Bushturd2, Muskhole, and Trumptydope are perfect examples of what "participation trophies" can do to a man's psyche. All three lived the ultimate "participation trophy" life.

I strongly agree that the GOP voter has been coddled and groomed by the GOP leadership.

Groomers will deny their victims a sense of agency. Here, the GOP tells GOP voters their votes are powerless, denying GOP voters a sense of agency.

Eberly and GoNoles know what I'm talking about. Not sure the other Republicans can really process what I'm saying here.
