AUDITS = Americans United for Integrity and Transparency in Elections

John Brakey, an official helping oversee the audit of the 2020 Arizona election, says auditors are looking for bamboo fibers because of a baseless accusation that 40K ballots from Asia were smuggled here.

I'm sorry, but that's AUFIATIE, not AUDITS.

Tell it to Mr. Brakey, he's the one I got it from.

there's an amusing video clip of him in that tweet

Have we had the magnificent Judge Amy Berman Jackson's latest action?

I posted that earlier and got the same reaction, I realise now I posted it on the wrong thread though.

Whatever, it's probably the most significant fun story for the thread so far this week, basically if the judge is right (the full text has been held back for 2 wks pending any DOJ appeal), then Barr lied to congress under oath, which is a criminal offence.

What were these guys thinking? That the Trump reich would last 1000 years?

Tucker Carlson tried to go after Joy Reid. She responded:

Don't come for the queen if she didn't call for you.

popstar7 - 05 May 2021 20:55:24 (#167 of 1856)

TIL that Tucker's little brother is named Buckley Swanson Peck Carlson.

They are Real Americans, equally at home in Mobile, Alabama and er La Jolla.

Was discussing the Donnie 'new social media' (blog) with my son, who pointed out that I'd missed - that while the right is in uproar about being 'silenced', he's come up with a solution for exactly one person. Naturally since this person is the only one he cares about, it's a solution that's just fine by him - but as always, his followers get stiffed.

#162 "Democracy" supplies the missing D, as the man says in the clip.

Tucker Carlson tried to go after Joy Reid. She responded:

It’s fascinating how all these right wingers bang on about the elites and the educated, because 99% of them are as elite as you can get. But it’s even more fascinating how they manage to co-opt a narrative and get support for it from the disaffected. It really should be the other way around if anything and somehow liberals and the left have kind of dropped the ball on that a little bit. I’m not sure what the answer is, but I wonder if sometimes liberals and the left just don’t communicate as well.

Of course it helps if your narrative is a simple one like “we don’t like those people with cultures (especially if they’re educated)” etc.

misosoup100 - 06 May 2021 02:24:53 (#171 of 1856)

What is he doing?

Tucker claims that thousands of Americans have died after getting their COVID shots.

"What is happening now for whatever reason is not even close to normal, it's not even close to what we see in previous years with previous vaccines."

Garden - 06 May 2021 02:55:47 (#172 of 1856)

He's stoking fear. It's a remarkably effective way to keep eyes glued on his show.

Garden - 06 May 2021 02:56:40 (#173 of 1856)

Plus there's the added benefit of undermining everything the White House is accomplishing on the vaccine front.

They walk amongst us, these pod people.

Joy Reid: "measle blouses".

Very good. I am educated.

Garden - 06 May 2021 05:15:24 (#176 of 1856)

She's so good.

Kind of funny how transparent Tucker's racism is - she did a nice job of reminding him that non-white-men who are accepted to Harvard have the same qualifications - and that Tucker didn't get in because he didn't have them.

Except if you're Jared Kushner, then your dad buys you a place in a class. Too bad no one loved Tucker enough to do that for him.

TheSwearingBear - 06 May 2021 06:52:58 (#177 of 1856)

Gotta love Tuckums.

Tadagee - 06 May 2021 07:31:44 (#178 of 1856)

If this was the UK then I'd imagine the vaccine producers would group together to bring a defamation action against both Tucker and Fox. Not sure how that would work in the USA.

Tinymcsmithy - 06 May 2021 07:35:53 (#179 of 1856)

If Dominion can do it, isn’t it similar?

Tadagee - 06 May 2021 07:44:52 (#180 of 1856)

Yes, I'd imagine so - just meant I'm not a Yoo-Ess-Ay law guy so couldn't say for sure.
