Batshit crazy conservatives are trying to persuade somewhat reasonable conservatives. They are adapting their optics and rhetoric to appear more reasonable. They went from having a press conference in a parking lot next to a dildo shop to a press conference claiming an algorithm from the ghost of Hugo Chavez stole the election to this conference.

In terms of optics, they are trying to make it look like a congressional hearing / court case. They announce “witnesses” that “testify”. I watched one witness who was an observer at a vote counting station. His testimony was that boxes of ballots would be brought into the room from another room. He didn’t know where the boxes full of ballots came from and it looked very suspicious to him. As he testifies, the people in suits around him take notes as if this is important - raising it’s appearance of credibility. 

This type of testimony has already been thrown out of courts. Judges have warned Trump lawyers not to bring baseless, frivolous claims to the court. This press conference does have better optics, yet it is only being broadcast by right wing outlets like OANN. I don’t think FOX is airing it live. I think the best the batshit crazy conservatives can hope for is that somewhat reasonable conservatives will think “yea, the election was rigged with fraud - yet the libs got us this time and it’s time to move on”. 

It seems like reasonable conservatives (the Lincoln Project) and batshit crazy conservatives (Rudy, MAGA, OANN) are fighting to persuade the somewhat reasonable conservatives (such as the FoxNews desk). 

I don’t think Rudy is the guy for this. In the last few months, it’s been a clown show from him. Getting caught with his hand down his pants, the dildo shop, dripping hair gel, The Kraken etc. I think he has been type casted as a clown lawyer and can no longer play the role of a real lawyer. It would be like Benny Hill trying to play a James Bond character.

In terms of being relevant, I think the bat shit crazy republicans would be better off dumping Rudy and going with someone more like Tom Cotton, who at least appears somewhat reasonable.

Sidney Powell was removed from Trump's legal team. And now Giuliani is having a live hearing in Pennsylvania. Sidney focuses on the voting machines while Giuliani focuses on the mail in ballots. The main claim I heard is that mail-in ballots were sent to people who hadn't requested them, and they even talked about checking the ink on the ballots for mass production fraud. Sounds like a Hollywood drama. I remain on the fence.

Trump claims that on election night every big political leader called to congratulate his victory 😂

Those claims have been thrown out of court by conservative judges. 

There was likely scattered instances of fraud as with any U.S. election, yet there hasn’t been evidence of mass fraud. The alternative theory would be that the U.S. court system is conspiring in the election fraud to elect Biden. Yet that seems like a big stretch to me. Why would conservative judges appointed by republicans join in a conspiracy with Democrats that have a different ideology? It takes a lot of mental gymnastics to hold that view.

Trump is going to be dragged out of the white house one way or another. 

No point in him crying wolf. All drama. He doesn't want to go away quietly. 

The bruised ego is doing everything to sound like it didn't lose. He lost fair and square 

He never had any dignity to begin with so it doesn't occur to him that he might be losing some.

Maybe by doing all this he is trying to create mass fear and panic because when someone puts up such resistance then people just obey that person or let that person do what they want, maybe his strategy is to create so much fear that nobody would talk about the election or question his stay in the White House so by default he gets to stay as a President. 

In every day life I've seen examples of people who have been so stubborn that people have given up and let them do what they want out of fear. 

It's just stage Red dominance strategy where enough fear can shut down a person from questioning anything.

@honesty why are you convinced otherwise? 

@Forestluv can you explain me what's going on in this video. Are they faking a hearing, like staging a hearing of the Republicans, by the Republicans and For the Republicans, is this legal? Is this an enactment of a hearing by Rudy Giuliani just for the purpose of streaming it to the public?

I don't understand what's going on here? It's not being held in a federal building? 

It looks ridiculous. 

 

And it's being held at Gettysburg, what an insult.

@Preety_India It was political theater to promote the narrative of mass fraud. It was designed to look like an official hearing, yet there was nothing official about it. 

There were some Republican PA legislatures that came to say how concerned they were about the fraud and that they would take action to fight fraud. To me, they were trying to tell the MAGA base “we are fighting for you”. They have a fine line to walk between maintaining reasonable republicans and batshit crazy republicans. 

On the left, it would be like trying to hold onto both Lincoln Project centrists and revolutionary socialists like Ryan Knight.

They should have done it in an animal zoo with all the animals as witnesses and chiming in their animal sounds. 

Or how about inside a church where pastors can approve them with a copy of the Bible? 

xD

And Trump needs to borrow some of the hair dye from Giuliani, his hair has been looking colorless and ashen in the past few days. He forgot to dye his hair it seems. 

Will add more color to these ridiculous gatherings!

@Forestluv I haven't looked into it in detail but what made me think of it as a Hollywood drama was the mentioning of forensic investigation of the ink of the signatures on the mail-in ballots. As an example, let's say that in a county they sent out 100,000 mail-in ballots to people who had requested them, and then they added 50,000 ballots of people who hadn't requested any, and all of those were signed with mass produced fake signatures and added directly to the vote count without being sent by mail to people. That was the kind of scenario I came to think of.

“There is no such thing as an “unsolicited” ballot. Five states routinely send ballots to all registered voters so they can choose to vote through the mail or in person. Four other states and the District of Columbia will be adopting that system in November, as will almost every county in Montana. Election officials note that, by registering to vote, people are effectively requesting a ballot, so it makes no sense to call the materials sent to them “unsolicited.” “

(...)

"The main states that are being contested — Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin — only send mail ballots to voters who request them. Trump said Thursday that such “solicited” ballots are absolutely “OK.”

Trump frequently blasts mail-in voting as flawed and fraudulent while insisting that mail ballots in certain states such as Florida, a must-win state for him are fine and safe. But mail-in ballots are cast in the same way as what Trump refers to as “absentee” mail ballots, with the same level of scrutiny such as signature verification in many states. In court filings, the Trump campaign has acknowledged that mail-in and absentee ballots are legally interchangeable terms."
