... and another one gone and another one gone....

another one bites the dust....

An Arizona state judge threw out the Arizona Republican Party’s lawsuit seeking a broader audit of votes cast on Election Day which county lawyers warned could have delayed the state’s certification of ballots.

In a brief order, the judge dismissed the lawsuit with prejudice and denied the Arizona Republican Party’s request to amend its complaint. He also denied the party’s request for an injunction to block Maricopa County from certifying the election results.

The judge said a fuller order explaining the decision will follow.

Georgia Audit confirms Biden is the winner. Despite a gagle of Trump lies, Republicans including Lindsey Graham demanding that Republican election officials fix the election and repeated death threats from Trumps SS wannabe terrorists.

“Having failed to make even a plausible case of widespread fraud or conspiracy before any court of law, the President has now resorted to overt pressure on state and local officials to subvert the will of the people and overturn the election,” Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, said in a statement.

“It is difficult to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American President,” the senator added.

The election “in all the swing states should be overturned, and the legislatures should make sure that the electors are selected for Trump,” Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell said during an appearance Thursday evening on Fox News.

Now that he has lost the subhuman sadistic psycho POS is trying to wreck the economy...
US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has pulled the plug on emergency Federal Reserve lending programs, drawing a rare rebuke from the central bank, which said they are needed to support the economy as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage.

The decision would force several programs to end that were intended to help businesses that have been struggling as the pandemic wreaks havoc on the US economy. The money was set aside in March as part of the CARES Act, a $2 trillion stimulus package meant to prop up the ailing economy by providing financial assistance and loans for distressed companies, among other measures.

But the central bank immediately criticized the decision. The Fed, which typically avoids commenting on sensitive political issues, responded in a statement saying that it "would prefer that the full suite of emergency facilities established during the coronavirus pandemic continue to serve their important role as a backstop for our still-strained and vulnerable economy."

Powell said earlier this week that it was too soon to wind down the lending programs. "When the right time comes, and I don't think that time is yet or very soon, we will put those tools away," he said during an event on Tuesday.

It's just funny how Juggs and Co. are all up in arms about Biden/Harris previously having policies that may have hurt Black folks, but don't give one shit about Trump attempting to torpedo Democracy.

They arent TOO sad to see the coach that is always in the news for claiming every loss is because of the refs, encourages dirty play, calls players nggrs, pays players, rapes children, and takes money from rivals to point shave or throw games fired. (I hope. So they say at least.)

But its not like they are willing to admit any institutional control problems either

One adviser who recently spoke with the president said that Trump told him he planned to announce a new campaign in three weeks, and that he wanted to act quickly to try to freeze the large field of prospective Republican 2024 presidential candidates. That group includes at least three people who have served in the administration: Vice President Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

"It would be a fool's errand to declare you're running for president at the end of this year, but on the other hand, to keep your hold over the party and fight Republican legacy hierarchy so that they can't erase you from history, it's important to remain a front-runner in this process," said Sam Nunberg, a former Trump adviser.

Regardless of whether he actually runs for president again, Trump is likely to try to dominate Republican politics for years to come.

"Unlike Bush, unlike Reagan, unlike any of our former presidents, he will be an ongoing presence," said Michael Steele, a former chairman of the Republican National Committee and senior adviser to the anti-Trump Lincoln Project. "He wants the party to continue to be consumed by him and his madness."

Trump has been bragging to confidants that he secured more votes than any Republican presidential candidate in history - although he trails Biden in the national popular vote by about 6 million - and that he believes he has leverage because he thinks anyone who wants a future in Republican politics will have to "kiss the ring," said a second adviser.

"Let's not pretend his sway over the party was based on his governance or his policy views," Buck said. "It was his ability to use his voice very loudly and attract attention for himself, and that's not going to change."

I dont know if he actually would run. But I can see him announcing it to keep others out of the running, And I am sure he is gong to be promoting te most extreme possible racist wacko candidates and savaging savaging loyal Americans.

This is what happens when you feed the bears.

Republicans could have done the right thing and put him in his place. But they chose to hop on the demagogue bandwagon. He may not rule the nation, but now he rules the party.

In other petulant sociopath news. Trump joined the G20 and spent the first session tweeting debunked election conspiracy theories. When it came time to discuss the worldwide pandemic that is on track to kill half a million Americans because of his self serving incompetence with more successful leaders - he bailed and went golfing instead.

Chris Christie calls Trump's legal team a 'national embarrassment'
GOP Governor On Trump’s Election Tantrum: Beginning To Look Like A ‘Banana Republic’

“Frankly, I’m embarrassed that more people in the party aren’t speaking up,” Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said.
Election officials in Wisconsin’s largest county accused observers for President Donald Trump on Saturday of seeking to obstruct a recount of the presidential results, in some instances by objecting to every ballot tabulators pulled to count.

Trump requested the recount in Milwaukee and Dane counties, both heavily liberal, in hopes of undoing Democrat Joe Biden’s victory by about 20,600 votes. With no precedent for a recount reversing such a large margin, Trump’s strategy is widely seen as aimed at an eventual court challenge, part of a push in key states to undo his election loss.
As they frantically searched for ways to salvage President Donald Trump’s failed reelection bid, his campaign pursued a dizzying game of legal hopscotch across six states that centered on the biggest prize of all: Pennsylvania.

The strategy may have played well in front of television cameras and on talk radio to Trump’s supporters. But it has proved a disaster in court, where judges uniformly rejected their claims of vote fraud and found the campaign’s legal work amateurish.


In a scathing ruling late Saturday, U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann — a Republican and Federalist Society member in central Pennsylvania — compared the campaign’s legal arguments to “Frankenstein’s Monster,” concluding that Trump’s team offered only “speculative accusations,” not proof of rampant corruption.
