    Another Surgeon General’s Warning: It may be hazardous to GLoP at night.

    Really? a new GLoP released at nearly 11pm Eastern?

    I agree. Rudy’s behavior has been a disappointment. I expect Trump to act like a bad guy. But I had hopes for Rudy.

    So, JPod thinks he has an audience because people like to read how he writes about things that he doesn’t know about?

    Great.

    Actually if that’s how most pundits are, it could explain a lot.

    Ricochet Audio Network: supporters of the President and people who believe the election was “stolen.”

    Because you guys know? I don’t think so. I really don’t think you guys have any insight worth listening to. Your advice, predictions, wishes and dreams have been exposed. This comes after 7 years of listening to, and reading your posts, and juxtaposing these witty ramblings against the transpired events. 

    You guys have short memories of your errant predictions and long ones of your glory days.

    To assume ( or conclude? ) there wasn’t coordinated and possibly massive fraud (on top of the pedestrian fraud in every election), at this juncture, with these crazy anomalies visible to us all, betrays abject naïveté, or something incredibly manipulative and devious.

    It’s been a long time since this was really about pop culture, without “drifting into” (or crashing head-on into) politics especially anti-Trump politics, something which the Sub-Standard/Beacon seems to carry off well even with their cast of characters?

    And yet the Sub-Beacon is apparently ending while these guys keep going and going and going…

    So how about they trade places, what do you think, Franco?

    Glop Boys,

    I listened to half an hour of you. I haven’t heard such a put down (of Guiliani) since I was 14 in the junior high school cafeteria. Usually, I’ve got to put up with sophomoric 19-year-old crap from you plus 50 glop guys. This time you got worse. I hadn’t had the time to watch Guiliani’s presser. So just out of curiosity I went to YouTube and listened to the first half-hour. He was completely rational. His arguments were strong well documented and devastating to anyone who is interested in the integrity of American elections.

    Apparently, the three of you could give a rat’s behind about the integrity of American elections. You lot are far more concerned about proving that you were right all along about Trump. Of course, you have been wrong all along about Trump. This has been proved so many times over in the last 4 years one wonders what keeps you going. One is reminded of the 14-year-old idiots in the cafeteria who were so sure that their obvious lying to smear somebody they resented was going to win the day. It didn’t, and in a few years, most everyone had attained a greater level of maturity and realized what a bunch of cheap shmucks these guys really were.

    Summing up, I was not impressed with this episode of Glop. Think a bit more clearly about the gravity of a fraudulent election for this country. Oh, and BTW, grow the hell up.

    Regards,

    Jim

    Trump’s votes arent the problem, explain the Biden voter to me. How is it possible that a democratic candidate can lose support in the Black community, the Hispanic community, Union workers. Yet miraculously Biden finds enough voter in 5 counties to win?

    Explain the Biden vote to me, it makes no sense.

    I have now watched the first full hour in which Guiliani alone spoke. He was very convincing. If he gets to court Biden is sunk. I will watch the rest of the presentation. However, I’d like to thank the Glop Boys for giving me the heads up on this. Of course, they were trying to bury it. Nice try.

    Regards,

    Jim

    To all and the Glop Boys,

    I am now watching the presentation by Sidney Powell on the computer-based fraud. Once again, if she gets to court with the hard evidence of the computer software scam from Dominion not only will Biden lose but there will be a lot of people in jail. If the Glop Boys think this is funny, I wonder what it would take to make them consider something serious. Try to wrap your wittle brains around it. Powell can and will prove everything she said in court.

    If she gets there.

    Regards,

    Jim

    Dennis Miller’s podcast is going away too. He scrubbed his social media accounts or at his twitter page.

    He said the country had had it when Obama beat Romney in 2012. Dennis had an actual successful 15-hour per week radio show for eight years, not a podcast. He came back for awhile for about 45 minutes twice a week, but he said that the country was in deep trouble even if Trump won as he wondered who was going to have the will to fight back when Trump is gone.

    American conservatives from the Northeast just want to fight the conservatives who live elsewhere.

    Not just “win” but from what I hear, he got 10 million more votes than Obama? BS.

    I’ve wanted John Is Always Wrong to be replaced with Sonny Is Always Right for a long time now. Call it BLoG or GLoB. The Sub(space) Beacon was wonderful even with the anchor Last. The one time they talked politics was because the movie, which I forget, was political and they spent minutes debating if they should bring up the politics.

    Trump has converted much of the Republican party into a party of lunatic conspiracy theorists. After all this is over, it will be harder to communicate a message to the public that says, “The Left isn’t in touch with reality.”

    Trump is a kook and he is incentivizing kookiness within the GOP. If you aren’t willing to go full bore kook with Trump, you aren’t “on the team.”

    You do you realize the (D) Obama run FBI/DOJ/IC ran a disinformation campaign alleging Trump colluded with the Russians with exactly no predication other than the HRC campaign made it all up as a political dirty trick.

    Then they had a full blown FBI Crossfire Hurricane investigation, unpredicated FISA warrants issued, a serial leaking campaign, and lest we forget the two year long Mueller Special Counsel investigation, the never ending Flynn ridiculousness …. Then there were other fun (D) antics like the Brett Kavanaugh raped somebody or something in high school maybe or were there some dirty words in his yearbook, it’s all pretty murky given it all happened in high school some 40+ years ago, but let’s have a Senate hearing on it anyway.

    Meanwhile, back on planet Earth…

    John Hinderaker, Powerline: Do Trump’s Lawyers Know What They’re Doing?

    This is a catastrophic error, the kind of thing that causes a legal position to crash and burn. Trump’s lawyers are fighting an uphill battle, to put it mildly, and confusing Michigan with Minnesota will at best make the hill steeper. Credibility once lost is hard to regain. Possibly Trump’s lawyers have already discovered this appalling error, and have undertaken to correct it. But the Ramsland Affidavit was filed in Georgia just yesterday.

    Andrew C. McCarthy, National ReviewCheckmate in Pennsylvania for the Trump Campaign

    To cut to the chase, all that remains of the Trump campaign’s complaint is the claim that voters in pro-Trump counties were denied equal protection of law because mail-in voters in pro-Biden counties — mainly Philadelphia and Allegheny counties (Pittsburgh is in the latter) — were invited by election boards to cure defects in their ballots. Even if there were arguably merit to this claim (doubtful), it may only involve a few hundred votes, and certainly not more than a few thousand. That’s not enough. By current count, presumptive president-elect Biden leads President Trump by 83,000 votes.

    Erick Erickson:

    Dominion does not have ties to the Clinton team or George Soros despite claims to the contrary.

    There is literally zero evidence about Dominion Voter Systems and each time Powell and Guiliani have been given the opportunity to present it publicly, they have declined claiming their witnesses would be harassed.

    Well, time is running out. If they truly have what they claim to have, they will need to go to court. My guess is they will claim any judge they go before is in on the theft of the election and that’s why he would not consider their evidence.

    At this point, I find this both deeply harmful and bordering on malicious. I would not be surprised if Dominion Voter Systems files a defamation claim against them. My suspicion is that this is payback for the Democrats’ treatment of Trump after 2016 and a whole lot of people want to be lied to and will believe it all despite zero evidence.

    Nope, I do not believe this conspiracy theory. It is just that — a conspiracy theory. It will not stop Joe Biden’s inauguration and the GOP would be wise to move on from a deeply destructive lie that only exists to settle pre-existing grievances about the 2016 election.

    Byron York, Washington Examiner

    GROWING CONCERN ABOUT TRUMP LEGAL FIGHT:Thursday’s news conference by Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis marked a turning point of sorts in the way some Republicans view the president’s challenge to election results around the country. Among those Republicans — Trump supporters all — there is concern that the attorneys’ sensational theories of election fraud are hurting the president’s cause rather than helping it.

    Most worrisome was Powell’s presentation. The lawyer — who had earned the admiration of many for her bold and determined representation of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn — told reporters that Joe Biden’s wins in some key states was the result of “the massive influence of communist money through Venezuela, Cuba, and likely China in the interference with our elections here in the United States.” The Dominion voting system and Smartmatic software used in the interference, Powell continued, was “created in Venezuela at the direction of Hugo Chavez” to corrupt elections there. “President Trump won by a landslide,” Powell concluded. “We are going to prove it.”

    But Powell did not prove it. She did not even allege with any specificity what she believes actually happened in the election. Powell said the Venezuelan software has the “ability to flip votes” and “can set and run an algorithm that probably ran all over the country to take a certain percentage of votes from President Trump and flip them to President [sic] Biden, which we might never have uncovered had the votes for President Trump not been so overwhelming in so many of these states that it broke the algorithm that had been plugged into the system, and that’s what caused them to have to shut down in the states they shut down in.”

    Thank you. It’s infuriating to me when people talk as if the last five years of unprecedented trashing of “the norms” and rule of law didn’t happen. It did happen and it wasn’t Trump who did it. Now, after all that, we’re supposed to believe it absurd that an entrenched political machine (hello Detroit and Philadelphia!) could manufacture an election outcome? Hell, that was believable before Trump, but it’s doubly believable now that the Dems have dropped whatever pretenses they pretended to and have embraced BAMN. If the other side believes what they’ve been told that Trump is literally a Satanic cross between Hitler and Bull Connor then they wouldn’t even need orders from above in order to exercise whatever control they have over their little portion of the process (mail, election judge, vote machine tech).

    Yes, you’re exactly like Tucker.

    If you listened to the whole clip, and if you listen to Tucker more regularly then you might notice that Tucker doesn’t view any of this as absurd or crazy. It’s just that the time to show the evidence is now. The red flags are already apparent to those who want to see, but red flags aren’t enough.

    Truth is what I’m after. The truth is that Tucker is genuinely curious about getting to the bottom of all this; you seem to be strategically incurious and using Tucker’s frustration more as a weapon than an actual argument.
