Jesus, does this demented partisan crap ever end?

Barr authorizes DOJ to investigate 'substantial allegations' of voting irregularities before election is certified

Attorney General WIlliam Barr on Monday issued a memo authorizing prosecutors "to pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of elections."

That's a change of Justice Department policy, which had previously advised prosecutors that "overt investigative steps ordinarily should not be taken until the election in question has been concluded, its results certified, and all recounts and election contests concluded."

And these individuals - who sought to suppress, frustrate, and thwart minorities and the poor from exercising the franchise and casting a ballot as much as was humanly, or inhumanly, possible, who now seek to undermine faith in and trust in the integrity of electoral process and in the electoral system, and also hope to make the transition to office for Mr Biden as painful and inconvenient and unhelpful as possible, now want hugs and sympathy and kind words to help them endure the humiliation they feel in defeat.

I feel an overwhelming - well, an almost irresistibly compelling - urge to give vigorous voice to an ancient Anglo-Saxon curse, or swear word.

Of course, the trick will be to find “substantial allegations.” So far that’s the reason that the suits have been tossed. Nothing credible, nothing substantial. Just accusations.

Problem is… as we all know, a little bit of disinformation spiced up with some conspiracy theory, simmered with anger and resentment and served up on Twitter, with a steaming heap of mass delusion on the side, goes very far with Trumpettes.

This is going to run and run… like Obama's birth certificate, Hilary's emails… the grassy knoll… *sigh* 🤬

Yep, setting the table for 4 years of resentment.

Someone posted here about McConnell’s comments about the left not accepting Trump’s election result in 2016 and that’s equivalent to what’s going on right now. That’s exhausting fucking false equivalence bullshit. The legality wasn’t contested by the left, but the electoral system itself.

The right is peddling conspiracy theories as usual. Mitch is worse than Trump because he’s so much smarter and more dangerous.

Meanwhile assorted news outlets in the USA including the WSJ have reported that international obsevers of the US elections disagree w/ Trump-GOP allegations of fraud. Here's relayed reporting on that that's not paywalled. LInks to the OSCE report have been posted in here already but my point in this post is that the report is getting play in a lot of US media.

... the grassy knoll…
Maybe that is why they were digging up the north lawn: to build a grassy knoll.

From the people who brought you a strong dislike for anonymous sources, they present...

LOL !! It's past time for me to get upstairs to sleep..... so too late to go carting that tweet over to the other place right now, but I'm gonna reach out tomorrow to someone I try to debate media issues with once in awhile, and offer that thing up for breakfast.
