After appearing next to his printing shop next door and Sidney Powell on a raging conspiracy, Rudy Giuliani made a more dressed attempt to question the election results at a Wednesday trial in Gennsburg, Pennsylvania.
Even before the President of the United States decided to make a phone call, it was a shadow government – an alternative government’s phase for an alternative reality – that badly promises what will happen in the next few years.
If he failed, the meeting of Republican lawmakers in Pennsylvania was billed as a “hearing,” though this description is a bit misleading. There were no Democrats (I didn’t see them anyway). But there was a trap in it. It looked like the part. And indeed, the most remarkable was how normal he seemed. On the daisy sat several state senators and deputies who were basically outside the central casting. If he spent some of his time around Republican politics, before Trump, these were basically standard edition t-shirts, meaning there were no visible tinfoil caps, just badly matched suits and red ties.
Speaking conservatively, the idea that “irregularities” or “anomalies” related to vote counting or “chain of custody” problems in Philadelphia, unfortunately, is not surprising. It would be like finding out that there is gambling in Casablanca.
All of this means that I wouldn’t usually be hostile to these claims (in fact, I tend to believe them). Unless you receive this message, it does not require attention to what has happened in recent months. And (unfortunately) I watched too much.
So when I hear sincere or convincing examples of voter fraud, other issues are immediately struck. For example, how could these squares of good old-fashioned electoral fraud (voting the dead, “chain of custody” issues, observers not see the count) be the last time I saw Giulian when he (along with Sidney Powell) claimed that the Hugo Chavez-created voting software did you change votes from Trump to Biden?
I mean, if machines can magically manipulate votes to cancel or change votes, then why bother with the trouble of the dead voting? I was also haunted by Trump’s constant premonitions that the election would be stolen. I mean, it’s no coincidence that Trump has literally spent months warning nothing that he can only lose if the Democrats steal the election, and then he loses the election and is “stolen” in an amazing way. ”?
What is remarkable here is that, unlike recent events, Wednesday’s session seemed to focus less on conspiracies (although there were any) and more on credible (if impossible to prove) allegations. It featured “normal” apparent Republicans like Senator Doug Mastriano, who called for a hearing and his opening speeches referred to Gettysburg, Ben Franklin, John Adams and Abraham Lincoln. “We’re here today to try to find out what happened in the election,” he said. It’s pretty normal-sounding things that would be hard to argue in any other context.
And, of course, the president was in it. True, Donald Trump didn’t really bother with the appearance, but he ended up on the phone when he ran away, just like a real government hearing, thanking the OAN for mediating, encouraging Republican state lawmakers to keep fighting and no one else. cut back. who does not believe he actually won these allegedly “fraudulent,” “fraudulent” elections, despite being found by voters, states, and courts.
“Don’t be scared of these people,” Trump said. – But bad people, horrible people. People who don’t like our country.
He also took the time to praise a friend. “I want to thank Rudy Giuliani for giving me the courage to do that,” Trump said. “Other lawyers stepped back because they screamed at them … This will be the result of your crown, because you will save our country.”
I’m still wondering whether Trump (who originally had to attend in person) jumped into the event because Giuliani was exposed to someone who has COVID (initially many speculated), or because Trump was afraid that Rudy would it became a joke and he covered his stakes to see how the audition shook before joining?
Considering that Trump already had COVID (presumably means he is not susceptible to the virus) and that despite being exposed, Rudy still went to Gettysburg, risking exposing a room full of people – and that Rudy ‘s last press conference became ridiculous – I suspect the latter. The event started at 12:30 p.m., but only started around 1:51 p.m. Trump got on social media sites and encouraged people to watch. Why is the promotion of the event delayed? Did something important happen that we don’t know about, or was Trump just waiting to make sure it wasn’t going to be another clown show?
It wasn’t exactly a clown show, but it was certainly not an attempt to win a court case. And while Rudy and others have talked about the legislature throwing the state at Trump, it’s not really an attempt to overthrow the results.
Instead of witnessing it, it was the performance of a government in exile. Except for the government’s actual Republican legislators, and its head remains in charge of the actual state until January 20th.
It’s an attempt to keep people from constantly believing that Trump was the real winner and, like Biden Obama, not really a legitimate president.
If that happens, we can look back and think of the city of Gettysburg in a whole new context.
