Georgian Republicans are part of the deep state threat to Trump

Over in the US of A some amazing claims are being made.  They are suggesting that the Georgian voting system has been subject to a huge rort, which I actually agree has happened, but that it is evidence of a Venezuelan based conspiracy against Donald Trump, which is bonkers.

As to the former all you need evidence then just check out these posts and how a couple of years ago the Republican administration wrongly purged 340,000, many Black Americans, from the voting roll.  Biden winning in the state was an outstanding result.  Take a bow Stacey Abrams.

But the new claims are bizarre, the sort of gibberish that you expect people under the deep influence of strong drugs to come up with.

And we have a new star, lawyer Sidney Powell.

In that factual language that it uses Wikipedia has this description of some of her beliefs:

Powell has promoted numerous conspiracy theories. She has made claims of a “deep state” plot to frame [fomrer Trump advisor Michael] Flynn, and has promoted personalities and slogans associated with the QAnon conspiracy theory. More recently, Powell has alleged that groups including international Communists, Venezuelans, Cubans, Chinese, George Soros, the Clinton Foundation, “globalists“, thousands of Democratic officials, as well as thousands of Republican officials including Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, have taken bribes to help rig the 2020 presidential election in favor of Joe Biden.

To get an appreciation of what we are dealing with this video provides some pointers.

Get that?  A world wide conspiracy that deep that even the Georgian Republican Party has been taken over.  And that targeted and that cleverly designed that it allowed Republicans to retain control of the senate.

The conspiracy must run deep.  Because Georgian Republicans had filed a law suit alleging a general conspiracy to engage in multiple examples of voter fraud but gave it up without a fight essentially because they had no evidence.

Things are that bad that Fox News’ Tucker Carson has been criticised for asking Powell for evidence to back up her claims.  When the biggest broadcaster of over the top right wing conspiracies is requiring Trump’s lawyer to provide proof of her claims then you know Trump is in trouble.

As an aside there is a proposal that the new Covid-19 vaccine should be named the Trump.  NBC Host Brian Williams made these comments on the proposal.

I actually think there is an argument for renaming the cure to Covid 19 the Trump.  But only if it is applied rectally.

    The only real problem with those two videos is that the people who believe the first conspiracy nutter (in the style of nazis on the the moon!) will also fail to miss the ironic delivery of the second. But I did like the visuals of all of the failed ventures with Trump name on them.

    The problem is that it would be a very bad image for the vaccines to come out with the name of a total failure attached to it.

    • Anne 1.1

      Trumpists don't do irony or satire. If its not in the baaarble (said with a hiss and a roar) then they don't know what it is. Fire and brimstone such as that delivered by the august lady in question is much more their style.

      Note how close together her eyes are. An old trick taught me by my Dad… never trust a person who has eyes that a close together. It's amazing how often it is correct.

      Btw, there’s no way I’ll be having any vaccine with that $^&*# face on it. 👿

    No no no no no, micky, you don't understand.

    Oozy Ghouliani has a cunning plan. Filing lots and lots of lawsuits with zero evidence that immediately get tossed out with sick burn opinions from Repug judges is a sneaky ploy to get a case in front of the Supreme Court faster.

    • mickysavage 2.1

      That makes as much sense as the Venezulean involvement theory 😀

      • Macro 2.1.1

        Nothing these idiot wing nuts profess ever makes sense. That is the quintessential doctrine underlying membership of this insane cult.

        Other doctrine include:

        • Opinion must override fact,
        • Lies are the New Truth,
        • Unwavering belief in the New Messiah's every twitterance, and
        • The complete abandonment of logic in favour of random utterance.

        I'm sure other commentators can add to this list.

        • Gyrogearloose 2.1.1.1

          Macro, on the basis of the assumption, given the context of your post, that you are a liberal, the irony of some of your 'doctrine' is bemusing

          • Macro 2.1.1.1.1

            I've spent the last half hour wondering what it is you have been trying to say here. I guess it all depends upon your use of the word "liberal". As I'm not sure just how you use that term, I'm uncertain if your assumption is correct.

            • Gyrogearloose 2.1.1.1.1.1

              Presumed you were suggesting that "the New Messiah's" was trump, and Trump supporters as the members of the "insane cult", as if it was, it fitted the pattern of this thread of slagging off Trump and his supporters, and I very seldom seldom see speech like that from anyone other than liberal/left leaning or democrat supporting type people.

              • Macro

                Perhaps you are unaware of the many references within the followers of Trump to him being sent by God.

                But there is another important reason why Trump loyalists do not waver no matter how he behaves or what scandals come to light. For most evangelicals, it is not only fear that keeps them in line, but it is also faith. As a cognitive psychology researcher who has been writing about the science underlying Trump’s support since he began his presidential campaign, I have learned—through comments, emails, and discussion forums—that a significant portion of his supporters literally believe the president was an answer to their prayers. He is regarded as something of a messiah, sent by God to protect a Christian nation.

                • Gyrogearloose

                  No. Never seen any of that.

                  What does he consider a significant portion?

                  But the irony that some of the doctrins you list also apply to the liberal / left / biden supporters and are the foundation underpinning much vehement hatred directed at conservatives still remains.

    The Donald went down to Georgia
    He was lookin' for votes to steal
    He was in a bind
    Cause he was way behind
    And he was shillin' to make a deal

    • mac1 3.1

      Well, the Donald did his best to steal the people's soul, and not only in Georgia, like I believe his father had already stolen his…..

    An Aussie perspective on the Presidential Race.

  5. Ad 6

    It's so fun to be able to look forward to another two months of daily seeing Republican leaders shear off from the great big truth-fire.

    But there needs to be an actual legislative fix that both sides of US politics would agree to. That's not too hard to actually imagine.

    President Trump has repeatedly accused Twitter and Facebook of censoring him and has zeroed in on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. That's the one that exempts internet platforms from legal liability for content generated by its users.

    A Biden Presidency could target repealing Section 230 as a way to reach across the aisle and do something useful that most of the Senate would agree to. Strangely Trump would also agree.

    Of course, it's wouldn't help Trump supporters, since that would likely encourage social media platforms to take more not less action over Trump supporter posts. And of course it would hinder a future Trump-based online tv station.

    The useful Fosta/Sesta legislation is a kind of precedent which holds sites responsible for sexual service advertisements on their sites. The passage of those bills led to the removal of But this repeal would be a whole bunch bigger and the big tech giants would fight hard. The passage of those bills led to the removal of Craigslist personal ads and made Tumblr really rethink their content policies as well.

    That repeal of Section 230 of that Act is the best way to restore truth into politics.

    If that repeal succeeds, it needs to lead to one single US media regulator.

  6. Peter 7

    At the moment in the United States you can put out any crazy thing you want and know there will be support for it.

    I reckon you could even say things like, "Donald Trump is a genius" or "Donald Trump has great cognitive abilities" and have millions support them!
