It’s Monday aka Christmas Eve-Eve-Eve-Eve…it’s aka the Winter Solstice.

For us political junkies, it’s known as, What Fresh Hell is This?, Day 47.

For What Fresh Hell is This?, Day 47 the almost Gone Girl, has tweeted 4 times and retweeted 3 times.

6:51 a.m. D.C., time.

1. Is a campaign tweet, a quote from Fox and His Friends, Brian Kilmeade, and attempts to take credit for something he wasn’t a part of…it’s a three-fer.

Very smooth distribution!

December 19th, 2020.

The President was responsible for those direct payments to Americans in the Covid-19 Relief Bill. 

Narrator: No he wasn’t.

On Sunday Senate Majority Leader Kentucky Republican Mitch McConnell said that the House and the Senate had come to agreement on a Covid-19 relief package.

Since I can’t find the Kilmeade quote, I can only speculate part of the reason for I Take Credit for All Things Good, posting it, is a reference to a Saturday after midnight tweet from the Whiner in Chief.

He hasn’t offered his thoughts on the relief package via tweet as of 10:48 a.m. D.C., time.

President-Elect Biden offered a statement late Sunday.

2. Says there is “Big news,” about a “Very big illegal ballot drop that cannot be account for,” that happened in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. He adds that the election was rigged.

I have Googled, I’ve come up empty. Even his psycho fans at the Epoch Times just posted his tweet saying we don’t know what he means, maybe it’s about the Supreme Court case filed on Sunday.

On Sunday Jenna Ellis, possibly a lawyer, announced that the campaign was asking the Supreme Court to overturn the Pennsylvania election results. In a bizarre series ending plot twist, they went with attempting to appeal 3 Pennsylvania Supreme Court decisions the first issued on October 23rd, 2020, the second from November 17th, 2020, and the third handed down on November 23rd, 2020.

Litigator Akiva Cohen, broke down the past rulings before reading their petition.

Cohen has more background tweets not included in this article. It’s a very long thread.

As to what the petition filed on Sunday looks like?

The footnote cites Trade Advisor Peter Navarro’s “report” called The Immaculate Deception regarding voter fraud that wasn’t.

Like with the background tweets above, Cohen has several more tweets unpacking the petition at the Supreme Court.

This is toward the end of the long detailed thread.

The last tweet suggests something I have been debating inside my own head.

It’s a serious question, on the face of their challenge it should be dismissed, without oral arguments, without thought, as it’s just fiction at this point. However, Cohen says out loud what many experts said about the Texas bullshit. Without the Supreme Court in detail pulling apart the fiction on the record, many will continue to believe that the case had merit, the Supreme Court merely hid behind the “process”.

But on the other hand, if the Supreme Court treats the case seriously, it puts the idea out there that there is a there-there, when in fact there simply is not. It’s as I said fiction.

10:30 a.m. D.C., time.

3. Asks what are those RINOS hiding?
4. Says that Republican Senate hopefuls will not win the GA Senate runoff’s if GA doesn’t allow for signature matching in the presidential race.

Signatures are verified using the outer envelope in Georgia, to preserve the secrecy of the vote, these envelopes are separated from the ballot after verification.

AP News fact-checked the claim back on November 15th, when the Sitting Lying Liar that Lies, lied that GA can’t verify signatures.

On Sunday the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals denied Senator Loeffler and Perdue’s emergency effort to change the GA signature matching process.

I have debunked this claim several times. For this election cycle Georgia added a second layer to signature matching. When a resident applies for an absentee ballot, that request is matched to the signature on file before the voter receives their absentee ballot. When the voter returns said ballot the signature is matched again. The exception to that rule is voters that have linked their GA Drivers Lic., to their voter registration, their signatures are matched one-time, when their ballot is returned to be counted.

On December 14th, 2020, the Secretary of State Republican Brad Raffensperger announced that Cobb County, Georgia, would undergo a signature audit following reports that Cobb County election workers had not “adequately conducted signature matching on absentee ballots ahead of the June primary elections.”

In his statement he explained: Election integrity has been a top priority since day one of my administration. Though the outcome of the race in Georgia will not change, conducting this audit follows in the footsteps of the audit-triggered hand recount we conducted in November to provide further confidence in the accuracy, security, and reliability of the vote in Georgia. I look forward to working with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Cobb County, and any other future partners to secure the vote in the Peach State.

They also explain in their statement the audit would take two weeks, adding that it would not change the outcome of the November election.

The audit of Cobb County’s signature match system is expected to take two weeks. However, it will not change the outcome of the November election.

The Impeached one-term asshole has tweeted 3 more times.

4:48 p.m. D.C., time.

5. Says a Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice was losing badly until he endorsed him.
6. Whines that Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice he endorsed did not rule in his favor.
7. Lies and says he “won in a LANDSLIDE!”

*Googles Trump endorses Brian Hagedorn*

I found one article published on March 2019, by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel was mentioned Asshole two-times.

1. An arm of the Republican State Leadership Committee debuted ads this week, including one that invoked President Donald Trump to praise Hagedorn. That ad compares attacks against Hagedorn to those against U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  
2. The Republican group’s first ad praises Trump for conservative appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court but says — over images of protests in the Wisconsin Capitol — “radical out-of-state special interest groups” are spending millions for Neubauer and making false attacks, “just like they did against Justice Kavanaugh.”

Trump Twitter Archive records one tweet with mention of Hagedorn.

April 5th, 2019.

I did find this tweet endorsing Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice candidate David Kelly, from April 3rd, 2020. No such endorsement seems to exist for Brian Hagedorn.

This post might be updated.

We are this many long days to go…

We are a month aka decades away from…

In other news the almost former Attorney General Lowest Barr said today that he sees no “basis” for the federal government to seize voting machines.

In the clip above says he would not “opine” on the Constitutional aspect of the President any President pardoning themselves.

In this small clip he states he has no reason to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden.

This is an Open Thread.
