It’s Friday.

We are 4 days away from Safe Harbor day.

We have arrived at What Fresh Hell is This?, Day 31.

The almost former President Blowhard has tweeted 9 times and retweeted 3 times so far for What Fresh Hell is This?, Day 31.

12:57 a.m. D.C., time.
1:04 a.m. D.C., time.

1. He’s going to “VETO” the Annual National Defense Authorization Act.
2. Try’s once again to make Section 230 about protecting our national security and not his hurt feelings.

@ 11:37 a.m. D.C., time on Thursday he tweeted that it was “Very sadly for our nation,” that Senator Inhofe didn’t add to NDAA Section 230’s termination clause into the military spending bill. He added it was bad for both our national security and election integrity.

During the summer of unrest that followed the murder of George Floyd during his arrest the Impeached now One-Term President told America he was planning on vetoing NDAA because it included an Amendment that would see military bases named after Confederate leaders renamed.

On December 1st, he explained via after midnight tweets that he was going to veto the bill because Section 230 termination was not included.

According to CNBC News, the NDAA typically passes with overwhelming “bipartisan support and veto-proof majorities.”

Included in this years NDAA; 3% pay raise for U.S. troops, a plan to rename military installations bearing names of Confederate leaders as well as a slew of other provisions.

Republican Jim Senator Inhofe from Oklahoma told reporters on Wednesday that while he agrees that “we ought to do away with,” Section 230 protection, he doesn’t believe you do so, in the NDAA, as Section 230 has “nothing to do with the military.”

Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger from Illinois tweeted that he would override any Lame-Duck veto attempt of NDAA.

Unrelated but noteworthy: On December 2nd, when President Bitchy McBitchy posted his 2 minute preview of his 46 minute Bitch Fest on Facebook, Kinzinger told President Cry’s about Twitter but Still Tweets Insanity to “delete his account”.

Reminder: The almost former President of the U.S., wants to remove Section 230 because Twitter hurt his feelings. It’s also our daily reminder that the “fuck your feelings crowd,” is very sensitive to their own feelings.

8:04 a.m. D.C., time.

3. Says thank you to Alyssa Farah.

The Washington Post was the first to report that White House communications director Alyssa Farah had resigned from her post on Thursday, her last day is Friday [today].

Farah, 31, began her White House tenure as press secretary under Vice President Pence before joining the Defense Department as press secretary last September, and she returned to the White House as communications director in April. She is the first person to serve in these three roles in one administration, and the youngest Pentagon press secretary.
Farah’s departure, with little over a month remaining in President Trump’s administration, amounts to a tacit acknowledgment that — despite his baseless and dangerous claims to the contrary — Trump lost the 2020 election, and much of his team is now pondering their post-White House future.

Washington Post. 12/03/2020.

Farah tweeted out a statement regarding her resignation.

11:05 a.m. D.C., time.

4. Promotes a rally.

Speaking of Georgia…

On Thursday first the Dickless One, retweeted two videos that were alleged to show proof that people in Georgia were doing shady stuff to help President-Elect Biden win that state, that a Democrat Presidential candidate hasn’t won since 1992.

@ 8:28 p.m. D.C., time via his own tweet he said that “People in Georgia got caught cold,” because they brought in “massive numbers of ballots,” and put “them in “voting” machines.”.

Republican from Georgia Gabriel Sterling explained the video footage that is said to show “fraud” at the State Farm arena was just the normal ballot process.

Leadstories reported on Thursday that no the 90 second clip does not show fraud according to two high-level officials with the Secretary of States office.

 No, those claim are not true: Two high-level officials with the Georgia secretary of state’s office and a state elections board monitor each told Lead Stories that their investigations revealed nothing suspicious in the video. The officials said the ballots seen in the video were in regular ballot containers — not suitcases — and they had been removed from their envelopes and processed while news media and election observers for the Republican Party and Trump campaign were present.

The media and party observers were never told to leave because counting was over for the night, but they apparently followed workers who left once their job of opening envelopes was completed, the chief investigator for the secretary of state told Lead Stories. The observers were free to return at anytime, she said. Georgia law allows observers, but does not require them to be there for ballots to be counted, she said.

Lead Stories. 12/03/2020.

In a phone call with Lead Stories Sterling said: If you look at the video tape, the work you see is the work you would expect, which is you take the sealed suitcase looking things in, you place the ballots on the scanner in manageable batches and you scan them.

Chief Investigator for the Georgia Secretary of State, Frances Watson told Lead Stories in a phone call: There wasn’t a bin that had ballots in it under that table. It was an empty bin and the ballots from it were actually out on the table when the media were still there, and then it was placed back into the box when the media were still there and placed next to the table. Nobody told them to stay. Nobody told them to leave. Nobody gave them any advice on what they should do. And It was still open for them or the public to come back in to view at whatever time they wanted to, as long as they were still working.

A state election monitor who wished to remain unnamed over concerns for their safety told “Lead Stories on the phone on December 3, 2020, that he was present at the vote counting location beginning at 11:52 p.m., after leaving briefly at earlier in the evening. He then stayed until about 12:45 a.m., when the work that night was completed.”

Fulton County Elections Director Rick Barron told 11alive that an election supervisor and that supervisor’s mother have received death threats. She was the supervisor of the State Farm Arena seen in the 90 second video.

Barron explained to Fulton’s County Board of Elections what was seen in the video.

I’ll just address the timeline of that evening – the staff at State Farm that evening, they began letting certain people go, no announcement was ever made to leave, for anyone to leave. Certain staff that were on the cutting stations, that were on the flattening stations, that were extracting from the inner envelopes, those staff left as work completed. I found out sometime, I think a little after 10:30, that they were gonna cease operations and I told them not to do that… at about 11:15 they were fully scanning again, and once they were scanning Carter Jones, the State Election Board monitor, he told me 11:42 or 11:52 that he arrived. There were media in the room, external affairs representative there until approximately 11:15. The Secretary of States investigator arrived at 12:15, and they scanned until all the ballots they had available to scan were complete and then cleaned up the room.

Part of their discussion with Barron.

5. Something–something–something “well documented evidence!”.

I listened to the OAN segment it is 2 minutes and 35 seconds too long.
According to Pearson Sharp, “mounting evidence” provided by postal workers coming forward that hundreds of thousands of votes for “President Trump,” disappeared mysteriously on “election night.” At about half way through the video Sharp explains that according to Phil Klein who’s group is looking into fraud claims, that many postal service workers were taking part in “wide spread illegal efforts to undermine the election.”

Okay, so pausing at the 1 minute 20-ish second mark, how the hell would the postal service worker know who voted for whom? Unless of course they opened all of them and tossed out the Worst President Ever’s ballots? Which wouldn’t, you know, raise a red flag or a million inside a Post Office sorting center?

*Resumes video*

Klein’s project Sharp says has photographic evidence of; people improperly accessing voting machines and eye-witness accounts that seals on ballot hard-drives were illegally tampered with and broken.

Klein says in total there are 300,000 fraudulent ballots from Arizona, 548,000 from Michigan. 204,000 from Georgia, and 121,000 from Pennsylvania. Sharp goes on to say that the FBI has requested to look at Klein’s data.

8:53 a.m. D.C., time.

6. Says that in the NDAA there is a provision for “renaming, or even desecration, of National Monuments in National Parks.

The PDF for the Bill found via Inhofe’s senate.gov website is 4,517 pages long. Using the “find” keyword feature as it’s, thank all the gods, a searchable PDF, I returned zero results for the words, “renaming, National Monuments or National Parks”. That’s not to say it doesn’t exist, somewhere, it’s just to say that it’s not in the bill shared by the man he called out by name in tweet form.

I went a few steps further than he’s tweet and included the keyword military bases, that resulted in 12 hits, but none included mentions of the renaming of U.S. military bases. The last word I tried was “provisions,” which has 398 hits, a lot of those returned hits include provisions not adopted, but again, none of them featured anything relating to military bases or National Monuments in National Parks.

8:54 a.m. D.C, time.

7. Tells R’s they need to get “TOUGH”.
8. Says the election was “RIGGED”.
9. Shouts his campaign slogan from 2016.

Parasite Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, apparently took the all-caps tweet to heart.

🙄

Narrator: no it wasn’t.
