Canada must just look at America and think what a fucking cunt you are lad. Chill out. Obviously Mexico cant talk. 

Sure they can - you just need to be able to speak Spanish to hear them.

I think she’s realised she might be in the dock soon, the usual pivot from a grifter.  

Pretty big rush from a bunch of folks trying to wash off the #trumpstink.

Yes, I know he’s a deranged Kraken lawyer, but Lin keeps providing entertainment for the masses. No taxes, Lin? Where do I sign up?!

Q posted ‘CHECKMATE’ on Parler and they’ve all started wanking themselves off.

When it turns out, it was just a 'eureka' moment for what the next Bond movie should be called.

Parler’s problems continue as they find being synonymous with right-wing fucknuts and conspiracy theorists lessens your attractiveness to others.

Well this is embarrassing. One of the fucknuts they all listen to online is British. 
 

 

I got halfway through and realised he is projecting that Trump will be inaugurated as President again. He's got a few suprises coming, I would imagine the Police and National Guard will be more prepared for their next 'phases'.

Expect plenty of bilious over-compensation in that regard in the next 4 years, as they try to regain the exemplary and immaculate perch Trump has knocked them off.

I had no idea it was fake. It’s been circulating for a while, and with all the Trump hate shit going down, I thought it was real. Everybody seems to have a camera in any given situation. It’s getting harder to tell the truth from the jokes.

 

So debunk the Mark Levin video as well while your at it. It might help put 7 million people (his followers) at ease and help them move on more objectively, because both those videos would have been adding fuel to the protest fire.

My comment was about the second clip and I know almost nothing about the constitution but I'll give it a go.

 

The Levin video fails to mention the pandemic. This worries me. In a pandemic it would be dereliction of duty for elected officials to insist on people gathering to vote - you therefore have to facilitate postal voting on a much greater scale than is normal and that might be at odds with the constitution, which was not written with a pandemic in mind. I do not know if this is the case here but Levin fails to mention it - that makes me suspicious.

 

The video seems to suggest that enabling more people to vote is a bad thing. I guess it is if they are not going to vote for your party, whatever that might be. I take the view that in a healthy democracy, you make it simple for as many to vote as possible while ensuring electoral security, ie people don't vote twice, dead people don't vote, etc.

 

Finally, Trump brought 60 law suits and failed to provide any compelling evidence that electoral fraud had occurred. The one case he won was not about fraud. Some of the judges in these cases must have been sympathetic - presumably they were Republicans and Trump appointees. If Levin's case is so strong, if the vote in some states were unconstitutional, why was this not presented in court? Why did the SC, which is now loaded in favour of the Republican party, chose to reject the case brought by Trump? Are we really suggesting that all these Republicans judges are in on the conspiracy to steal the election or is it simply that there was no fraud on a scale that would have had an impact on the result?

They left out a couple words, it was supposed to read -- Send me a check mate.

Absolutely the pandemic made this a unique election, and absolutely the use of mail in ballots was a given, for it to be a functioning one. Levin does touch on it, indicating  the mail in ballots being almost unilaterally sent out, but clearly stating that from his perspective, the ballots needed to be requested, to be legal, and in so many cases, they weren’t. He also seems to point to an inability to process those ballots under federal and/or state requirements - maybe overwhelmed?- leading to many of them not being scrutinised properly, leading to illegal votes - again, possibly.

 

As to Trump’s legal defence, clearly now their incompetence in there for all to see, and not asking the right questions may have been an issue.

 

However, really the point I’m making here, is that this Levin spout, is typical of what uneducated ordinary people have to try to understand and either agree or disagree with, and its everywhere on right wing tv. If you’re a conservative - shall we say pro Trump - then you’re going to start to falsely put two and two together, getting three instead of two. 
 

I’m simply trying to understand how a large portion of nearly 80 million Americans came to think that the election was stolen
