Oops, that didn't work either

CBS News

A federal judge in Pittsburgh has thrown out the Trump campaign's challenges to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court's rulings in favor of ballot drop boxes and against out-of-county poll watchers.

The judge ruled Saturday that the campaign did not provide "concrete" evidence of impending voter fraud, only speculation on what could happen. The Trump campaign argued that they did not actually have to show there was fraud, only that it could easily occur.


"While Plaintiffs may not need to prove actual voter fraud, they must at least prove that such fraud is 'certainly impending.' They haven't met that burden," Judge Nicholas Ranjan of the Western District of Pennsylvania wrote in his decision.

Who is more honest/trustworthy? Last CNN poll:
Biden 58%, Trump 33%.
Early Oct. 2016: Trump 45%, Clinton 41%...

If he’s smart, and he is, he’ll use this to kick off his inevitable 2024 campaign by throwing Trump under a bus (or bridge) next week.

It’s too late for him. Anyone who opted to join Trump out of free will and not out of congressional alignment is forever marked with Trump. People like McConnell can get off, but people like Christie made a choice.

Yeah, I saw an interview with him on Colbert a while back where he acknowledged he was considering trying to work for Trump again in the future, and I remember thinking, "...after the way you were chewed up and spat out, you're STILL considering going back?" I don't think he has enough self-respect to turn on Trump. If he wants to prove otherwise, go for it, but I'd be very surprised if it happened.

Martha McSally, the Arizona senator trailing the former Nasa astronaut Mark Kelly by a significant margin, attacked Trump for his repeated attacks on her predecessor, John McCain. “Quite frankly, it pisses me off when he does it,” she said in a debate this week.
Gee, I wish she and any other Republicans who shared similar sentiments had been stronger and more vocal in saying such things these past four years, then.

I would like to think and hope that if, indeed, the GOP does suffer a crushing loss next month, it will force them to regroup and reshape their party by kicking the crazies out and going in a much more sane and decent direction. I don't know how a party could suffer a loss that significant and NOT feel the need to look inward and see where they'd gone wrong, and try to right things.

But I'm not entirely holding my breath on that happening. And if they do refuse to change their ways and keep on with the route they're on now, and this winds up being the ultimate nail in the coffin for their party's future in general, well...cue Lindsay Graham's comments from 2016 about how they would deserve what happens.

Drip drip drip, the abject neglect to the point of criminality keeps leaking out



The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention drafted a sweeping order last month requiring all passengers and employees to wear masks on all forms of public and commercial transportation in the United States, but it was blocked by the White House, according to two federal health officials.

The order would have been the toughest federal mandate to date aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus, which continues to infect more than 40,000 Americans a day. The officials said that it was drafted under the agency’s “quarantine powers” and that it had the support of the secretary of health and human services, Alex Azar, but the White House Coronavirus Task Force, led by Vice President Mike Pence, declined to even discuss it.

The real question now is the effect on downticket races.

I believe the presidential election has all the makings of a total blowout. Which is really, really well deserved.

Herd immunity is the trickle down economics of pandemics.

In theory it kinda makes sense, but execution it’s a disaster.

Atlas and others keep using Sweden as the model but even Sweden has better restrictions than we do. And they still suffered death and economic downfall. And if they achieved herd immunity than why are they going through the start of another infection wave ??

The US is the absolute worst place (of developed nations) to let a virus wash over.

Our healthcare sucks
Nearly 50% of society has a pre existing condition making covid much more severe And deadly
We don’t keep 100% of our elderly and vulnerable locked up, so the virus eventually reaches them and kills them
Because of our healthcare and corporate greed people can’t afford to take time off if sick so the cycle continues.

Getting Trump and his criminals out of White House will help, but i do wonder how Biden administration will truly fix our problems.

The positive i see is that the feds will have a plan and help out states

The negative is the GOP led states will refuse any mandate, and possibly financial or healthcare assistance.

Chris Christie's future was as the tell it like it is reasonable moderate republican.

Bridgegate and his chilling on the beach after closing it to the public sunk his political career. Hooking himself up to Trump was more or less all he had left. At least he kamikazed Rubio in the process.

His future consists of being a part time commenter on OAN.

Like Bono with his eyes on the cookie jar on the top shelf, Christie will reach higher.

After Trump, can we really say that anything will sink someone’s political career anymore? Trump raw dogged porn stars, threw babies in cages, and killed 210,000+ Americans. What’s a bridge closure so long as white people get their unqualified judges?

Fair, but if the republicans get curb stomped in November and lose everything you would have to imagine that they're going to have to go away and dream of all up again.

I see a moment for never trumpers to reclaim the party.

If they're still the same shit show come 2022 and 2024? I mean... I just can't see it being successful nationally.
