It’s Wednesday.

We’ve now entered What Fresh Hell is This? Day 42…

For What Fresh Hell is This?, Day 42, The President for 35 More Long Ass Day’s has tweeted 5 times and retweeted 3 times.

12:40 a.m. D.C., time.

1. Tells us it’s “too soon to give up”.

On Monday the Electoral College delegates met around the U.S., to cast their votes for the President and Vice President separately.

After all the states voted President-Elect Biden had 306 EC votes, the Incumbent Idiot had 232.

Washington Post Electoral College Tracker. 12/14/2020.

The winner of the Presidential Election only needs 270 EC votes to win the Presidency…In light of President-Elect Biden’s reaching the 270 plus EC votes. Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Tuesday, recognized the reality that our Failed One-Term Asshole and his supporters are attempting to deny; which is, as was projected on November 7th, 2020, that former Vice President Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States.

People are angry he says, which is fair, it’s true, but they are only angry, because he’s pushing an alternative reality onto his supporters and the nation as a whole, fabricating the idea that the election was stolen from him. It simply wasn’t. He simply lost.

1:09 a.m. D.C., time.

2. Was watching OAN in the middle of the night.

OAN Chick: A top insurance fraud expert recommends that Dominion voting systems be audited to fix irregularities in this years elections. In a recent study, Ben Turner of insurance consultancy Fraud Spotters [her phrasing is awkward] found Dominion voting system shifted an average of 2 to 3 percent of votes from President Trump to Biden. Turner says this type of fraud took place only in counties which used Dominion machines. The study finds Dominion glitches [all have been reported as human error, not machine glitches] and the high rates of error effected more votes than necessary to sway the election outcome. Officials in Nevada and Arizona are now following Michigan’s lead to conduct forensic audits of the machines.

I googled the study she’s talking about. I think I found it, anyway. The only Ben Turner study I found via fraudspotters.com was posted on November 21st, 2020. On December 9th, 2020, he posted a FAQ regarding the “Dominion Effect”.

An excerpt from Turner’s blog post.

For Dominion to have switched the election from Trump to Biden, it would have had to have increased Biden outcomes (with a corresponding reduction in Trump outcomes) by 0.3% in Georgia, 0.6% in Arizona, 2.1% in Wisconsin, and 2.5% in Nevada. The apparent average “Dominion Effect” is greater than the margin in Arizona and Georgia, and close to the margin for Wisconsin and Nevada. It is not hard to picture a scenario where the actual effect in Wisconsin and Nevada was greater than the national average and would have changed the current reported outcome in those two states.

[The next sentence after the paragraph].

Assuming the “Dominion Effect” is real, it is possible that an audit of these machines would overturn the election.

[In bold he writes] The best way to restore faith in the system is to audit the Dominion voting machines in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, and Wisconsin.

3. Whines about a local issue.

The Daily Caller article sends users to a San Francisco Chronicle article that’s pay-walled.

Since I can’t read the source report, I have zero idea why this is current news, according to the School Names Advisory Committee’s website, their next meeting isn’t scheduled until January 6th, 2021. Their last meeting, which has the minutes and zoom video posted at their website was held on October 7th, 2020.

On November 11th, via Google, I found a post about the School Advisory Committee from SFGATE, that explained, “Despite backlash and mockery, a panel of community members advising the San Francisco Unified School District is doubling down on its push to rename 44 of the district’s 125 schools.”

From SFGATE, 11/11/2020.

According to the panel, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and even Sen. Dianne Feinstein are insufficiently woke to have city schools named after them, and parents and principals were formally asked in October to brainstorm potential new names by Dec. 18. [<<< maybe that’s how come it’s news right now?]

SFGATE. 11/11/2020.

According to the post, the school board will vote on any name changes in January or February of 2021.

In October the school board (SFUSD) offered the following statement to SFGATE; Any final decision to change school names rests with the elected members of the Board of Education. As part of this process, the committee has requested input from schools by the end of this semester. Schools are not required or mandated to participate in this process. This is a process being led by an advisory committee. The district appreciates that the advisory committee’s timing may be difficult for schools, and has conveyed concerns to the advisory committee regarding the challenges of making recommendations at this time given that we are in distance learning due to the pandemic.

The Mayor of San Francisco London Breed is quoted as calling the potential name changes “offensive.” SFGATE also reported that parents in the district have ridiculed the idea.

Almost two hours later…

4. Says it’s “Really Sad!”, that Fox News has bad ratings.
5. Says it’s Fox News fault along with the “Rigged Election!!!”, to blame for his election lose.

The election wasn’t rigged.

The biggest difference between 2016 and 2020, more people turned out to vote and more voted for Joe Biden, the President-Elect, than they did President Impeached Lame Duck One-Termer.

Lame Duck has a cabinet meeting today.

President-Elect Biden’s schedule for today:

This post might be updated.

So many more days to go until:

This many more sleeps until:

We are 9 days away from Christmas 2020.

This is an open thread

In other election news; Authors note: I debated covering the Senate Election hearing currently happening on the Hill. I decided against it, Alien, had other plans already for this morning. But, given what I’ve seen so far out of the hearing, I’m glad we skipped it live, it’s one of those cases, that it’s better to summarize the events later, when you can include fact-checking because all a live thread does, is give rise to the false narrative that it was fraud that denied Trump his second term, and not in fact, just voters firing him.
