Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Lying to Ourselves

 

We have a problem with our federal government, but it’s not exactly the one we’re used to thinking about. Frankly, we don’t want to think about it all – better to deny the reality entirely. Easier to lie and lie and lie, and blame our problems on everyone else. Easier to blame Liberals, or Wokesters, or (the current favorite among the increasingly reality-averse folks who still cannot face that Trump has immolated himself once and for all time) traitors and sabotage. It is, of course, all lies. Mind you, lies can be useful – especially when trying to avoiding hurt feelings (our own not the least), but they’re still lies. At one time rebellions against ruling monarchs favored the lie “We’re not really rebelling against the King, he’s just the victim of bad advisors.”

The lie we all tell ourselves today is that we are the helpless victims of “The DC Establishment” (or whatever other term you want to use). Synonyms for this include “Wall Street,” “Big Tech,” and a host of others. They are the “bad advisors” we blame for manipulating Congress, for stealing elections, or for disloyalty to Trump (fact check here: the only consistent disloyalty in the Trump administration came from Trump – watching his cabinet members go from vaunted heroes to filthy traitors and sellouts in the commentariat was much akin to studying Soviet photography for disappearing faces alongside Stalin). We are very good at lying to ourselves about why Trump lost this or that political battle, about why Congress is a dysfunctional mess, and about why the “authoritarian ratchet” is inexorable. The truth we cannot confront about it is all is simple, and we all bear the shame of it. We do not really want any of our congress critters, our president, or our courts to lead us out of our morass, we want them to follow us into the pit of our own making. And follow they blithely do.

We all know when a team has given up. Morale, communication, and coordination plummet. Easy shots are suddenly impossible. Obvious wide open opportunities to score or advance the ball are suddenly invisible. And not least, creativity takes a nosedive and the team’s efforts devolve into half-hearted repeats of the same tired set of plays – […]

If anyone missed these stories, chalk it up to suppression by the news media. No matter what happens on January 20th, read the report for yourself and draw your own conclusions. My conclusion is this ship has sailed. The Great Reset is and has been underway. The EU, the WEF and other global entities will […]

I’ve been harping on and on and on about Trump needing forensic evidence that can stand up in court, because no Judge is going to throw out the voting results of an entire county, much less a state, based on indicators of fraud instead of actual evidence of fraud. Well … please watch this; Preview […]

My favorite Supreme Court Justice of all time is Clarence Thomas, for his courage in sticking to his principles, despite knowing they are unpopular with the tastemakers of the day, no matter the consequences. This courage was a deliberate decision by Thomas. In February 2001, he gave a speech at the American Enterprise Institute outlining […]

Was there “chicanery” November 3rd? I don’t know. But I do know this:

It is an unwritten law of nature that nothing happens for the first time. We’ve all been there. When a teenager gets busted for booze or pot, chances are it’s not the first time. When a cop pulls your kid over for speeding, same thing. Should you catch your spouse in flagrent dilecto no matter how much he denies it or how much you want to believe him, deep down you know the truth. If you find your wife day drinking during the pandemic, and she swears that she hasn’t done it before, it’s probably not the first time.

The Texas lawsuit and the 17 states that have filed amicus briefs in support have been one of the few bright spots in the last one month on the legal battlefield. What concerns me as a gaping weakness is that while Texas is rightly pointing out that every extra-legislative change in the four states made […]

Two disclaimers; first of all, I am not a lawyer. Second is that I have learned to never assume that any politician is some super-genius executing a plan above my capacity to discern or comprehend. I watched too many people fool themselves with the idea that George W. Bush’s politically disastrous silences were part of […]

For some reason, I keep imagining Trump announcing to the world, with unassailable forensic evidence, that his team has discovered hundreds of thousands of fake ballots were manufactured for Biden in PA, GA, MI, WI, AZ and NV – just before Congress is to meet to accept the results on January 6th. For icing on […]

Let’s consider a scenario. A major corporation goes bankrupt rapidly, and lots of people lose jobs or money in stocks. Even other companies are left holding the bag from purchase orders. It turns out that a major executive was actively embezzling from the company and defrauding the investors while lying to the SEC. However, the […]

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Are We Watching Failure Theater? Because Team Trump’s Actions Don’t Make Any Sense.

 

Maybe Giuliani, Murtaugh, Stepien, etc. have some different, better course of action planned that I cannot begin to guess at, but otherwise what’s happening (or not happening) isn’t making any sense.

Let’s be honest; everyone knew from the onset that no judge is going to set aside the results, or delay the certification of the election, and no state legislature is going to send a different slate of electors without incontrovertible evidence of election fraud in sufficient volume to change the outcome.

Join Jim and Greg as they enjoying watching House Democrats point fingers at each other for doing much worse than expected in Tuesday’s elections. Jim tells Republicans to stop airing their arguments about election crimes or irregularities on social media and cable news and bring evidence to court if there are reasons to investigate the vote counting. And they unload on self-important New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman for suggesting Al Gore “took a bullet for the country” by conceding to George W. Bush in 2000.

This isn’t so much an “article” as a conservation starter. I can’t help but imagine some election scenarios. Unfortunately, I can’t think of a single on that doesn’t result in major riots. I’ll just start the ball rolling, and I’ll read all replies, but it’s unlikely I will have the time to comment on them. […]

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. How the Election May Be Stolen

 

Be concerned. Very concerned. Even if Trump and the GOP appear to have won a major electoral victory on Election Night… because of Mail-in ballots the election will drag on for hours and days. Just a couple of ways how the theft is likely to occur: Mail-in ballot envelopes opened by steam, real ballots replaced with counterfeit ballots and envelopes resealed; and postal workers, already in the employ of Democrat operatives, dumping Republican ballots en masse into garbage dumpsters. But wait, there’s more.

First, from Gateway Pundit and the New York Post:

A Democrat operative who worked covertly in a massive voter fraud operation blew the whistle to New York Post reporter Jon Levine and revealed how Democrats will try to steal the 2020 election with their mail-in vote scheme.

The Nevada Democrat-controlled legislature “in a midnight special session” over the weekend pushed through a massive change to the voting process in the state, without any discussion or debate from Republicans, without any input or counsel from the Nevada Secretary of State, allowing ballot harvesting throughout the state and allowing partisan operatives to enter nursing homes with elderly dementia patients and “help” them fill out their ballots and if the patient is unable to sign the ballot the operative will sign their ballot for them. President Trump has conveyed that the GOP will file a lawsuit in the next day or so to have the law vacated.

Ballot box“Never leave it to the judges.” This admonition of every rule-based combat sport goes double for elections. John Roberts has already amply demonstrated that he is no William Rehnquist. If we leave the 2020 presidential and Congressional elections to the courts, John Roberts will deliver the result George Bush wants: a boot in the face of every voter who dared to vote for President Trump. There will be no repeat of the 9-0 Bush v. Gore opinion. We need far more than President Trump talking about the foreseeable disaster of mail-out vote fraud, which he keeps mislabeling as mail-in voting.

We need immediate administrative and litigation work that spells out the specific, historically documented threat of massive voter fraud and that seeks as a remedy a strict prohibition on issuing ballots to any person or address not validated this year as a live voter address. We simultaneously need to collectively get off our duffs and fight like we have a country to save. I mean that we, you and I, have to be directly involved in getting every single possible real vote into the right box with the right candidates marked. Whatever the local rule, that is the game you and I must play or shut the federalism up!

As a casual fan of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), I have heard competent losers, after a bout went to the judges’ scorecard, say “I didn’t finish my opponent. You can never leave it in the judges’ hands.” Politics ain’t bean-ball, and there is no crying in presidential elections. Fight to win or don’t snivel about the results. It is not as if Democrats cheating is a new thing. As Salem Radio host Hugh Hewitt wrote in the summer of July 2004, the election after Al Gore and the Palm Beach Democrats tried to steal the 2000 election, If It’s Not Close, They Can’t Cheat.” The rest of the title? “Crushing the Democrats in Every Election, and Why Your Life Depends on It.” Yes. When your opposition is the party of two steps forward and one step back, of Rules for Radicals and Das Kapital, it actually, no kidding, for real is a matter of physical life and death for many in our lifetimes and of liberty or reeducation camps for many more. Until we reconquer our own nation’s culture, them’s the rules.

Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder apparently is certain that Republicans are going to cheat in the 2020 federal elections. “It’s going to be hard because the reality is that Republicans are going to cheat. They’re going to try to keep people away from the polls, they’re going to move polling places, they’re going to do […]
