They’re all in on the election fraud conspiracy hobbling Biden’s transition

first_img– Advertisement – In the meantime, Attorney General Billy Boy and GOP Leader Mitchy Mitch put their heads together to go all in on Trump’s delusions—anything to lift the spirits of the Dons. In the absence of even a single credible allegation of voter fraud, Barr went ahead and authorized federal prosecutors on Monday to investigate any “substantial allegations” of irregularities just in case. Who knows, Rudy G might still cook up a little something. Stay tuned for his next destination presser nestled somewhere between a fantasy sex shop and an outward-bound crematorium—either way, it’s an otherworldly experience.And back on the Senate floor, Mitchy Mitch held yet another ceremonial betrayal of oath, country, and the integrity that apparently escaped him at incarnation. “The president has every right to look into allegations and to request recounts under the law,” McConnell explained Monday of Trump’s imaginary voting “irregularities.” The press, McConnell continued, doesn’t “get veto power over the legal rights of any citizen, including the President of the United States.” In other words, McConnell’s totally on board with giving Trump, Billy Boy, and Rudy G the space to tilt at windmills, particularly since he needs Trump’s frenzied supporters in Georgia in a lather over their imaginary disenfranchisement. The gamble? They’ll rush back to the polls in a couple months after being told the election was stolen out from under them.- Advertisement – But the conspiracy ran into a little unforeseen snag back in Georgia. After the two GOP senators facing January runoffs accused Georgia’s Republican secretary of state of failing the state’s residents and called for his resignation, he got a little huffy. First off, Sec. Brad Raffensperger said no resignation was in the offing. Second, Sens. Kelly Loefler and David Perdue might want to concentrate on actually winning the election rather than pointing fingers at others for why they didn’t.“As a Republican, I am concerned about Republicans keeping the U.S. Senate,” Raffensperger said. “I recommend that Senators Loeffler and Perdue start focusing on that.”  But outside of Raffensperger, Washington Republicans are giving Trump’s baseless voter fraud claims as much oxygen as possible while hobbling the transition of power to Joe Biden. It’s a national security nightmare but, hey, Republicans never give a damn about anyone but themselves. – Advertisement –last_img read more

Mourinho unimpressed with Parrott’s cameo in Tottenham’s FA Cup exit

first_img Loading… Jose Mourinho says Troy Parrott has to ‘work a lot’ to improve and feels the Tottenham teenager’s ineffective outing against Norwich shows he was right to leave him out of the side for so long. There were loud cheers from supporters when the 18-year-old came off the bench at the start of extra-time in Wednesday’s FA Cup fifth-round tie, though he struggled to make an impact as the match went to a penalty shootout. The Portuguese coach feels the teenager’s quiet outing justified his doubts The Republic of Ireland youngster bravely stepped up to take Spurs’ fourth penalty, which was saved by Tim Krul, with Gedson Fernandes’ effort also stopped as Tottenham limped out of the competition. While Mourinho defended Parrott over his penalty miss, he was quick to point out that the young striker had not impressed in his cameo appearance and is still not ready for a bigger role in the side despite the clamour from fans to see more of him. Speaking to BBC Sport, Mourinho said of Parrott: ‘The penalty is nothing. He is a penalty taker in the under-23s, he scores every one in the unders. ‘He was so confident, he wanted to take one, he wanted to take the responsibility, it’s an experience in his career. ‘The problem is not his experience. The problem is the 30 minutes. ‘Now people can see that he has to work a lot so don’t think that Parrott is the second Harry Kane because he’s just a young kid that needs to work. ‘Let’s forget the penalty because we all miss the penalties, it was not Troy.’ Mourinho says his attackers are being run into the ground Read Also: Dier confronts fans in the stand as Tottenham crash out of FA Cup Parrott was only involved because Tottenham’s squad has been stretched to breaking point with injuries and Mourinho says the club cannot put out their strongest team against both Burnley at the weekend and RB Leipzig in midweek. He continued: ‘In this moment I have to think about what’s next and I have to speak to my club because I think some of these boys to have a chance to fight Tuesday for a Champions League position they just can’t play on Saturday. ‘Particularly in forward positions, behind we’ve got options but not going forward.’ FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more

Play Games, Raise Funds for Alzheimer’s Association at Game Night to…

first_imgFacebook49Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Catherine Pearce for Alzheimer’s AssociationAfter losing her dad, Nick, to Alzheimer’s in 2014, Catherine Pearce decided to do everything she could to end this devastating disease. Once Catherine began to set a plan in motion, it was incredible just how many people came forward who had also been affected by Alzheimer’s in some way. Unfortunately, that is not surprising when you consider over 5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s, and there is no cure or treatment for the disease.Catherine Pearce with her Dad, Nick, who passed away from Alzheimer’s in 2014. Photo courtesy: Catherine PearceFrom months of dialogue, research, and coordination with the Alzheimer’s Association, Game Night to Remember was born. The premise of the event is unique and exciting: official volunteers will play tabletop (or “board”) games for a full 24 hours, only stopping for minimal breaks. They do this to collect pledge donations, much like the principles of a walk-a-thon. During the event hours, the public is encouraged to join the official players in one of the hundreds of games available, or to bring a game to “challenge” them. Of course, the volunteers will take the time to explain and teach new games so everyone can be part of the fun.Tabletop games are not the only part of this event. There will be over $2000 worth of raffle prizes for lucky winners to take home. Local businesses have truly contributed to this raffle, offering up massages, spa gift cards, and boutique items. Gamers and geeks will be pleased with the raffle selection as well; collectible prizes range from rare 1960s games, to Star Trek memorabilia, to items from popular new shows like Game of Thrones.A sampling from over $2000 in raffle prizes that will be offered at Game Night to Remember. Photo courtesy: Catherine PearcePerhaps the most exciting part of Game Night to Remember is the location. The entire event will be hosted by Gabi’s Olympic Cards and Comics in Lacey, which is already well-known for being generously focused on giving back to Thurston County. Catherine Pearce knew that Gabi’s was the ideal place for Game Night to Remember, due to the 7000 square feet of comics, games, specialty items and open gaming space. This is excellent news for Catherine’s growing group of volunteers, who need the space to keep tables going for dozens of people to game at any given time. Also, Gabi’s is extremely family-friendly and holds strong to the principle of creating a safe space for everyone.So what kind of gaming should one expect at Game Night to Remember? Honestly, ANY kind! The diverse group of volunteers each specialize and enjoy different categories, so there is something for everyone to play. There will be casual and social games, like Apples to Apples, Code Names, and Balderdash. There will be more advanced strategy games, like Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, and Pandemic. For players who want to try something new, there will be tutorials on advanced and difficult games like Dungeons and Dragons.Hundreds of games will be available for play, including popular hits like Code Names, at the October 8-9 Game Night to Remember event. Photo courtesy: Catherine PearceGame Night to Remember is absolutely free for the public to attend, though our goal is to raise as much money as possible to stop Alzheimer’s, so we encourage everyone to bring donations and funds for raffle sign-in. 100% of all donations and proceeds from the raffle will go directly to the Alzheimer’s Association.Game Night to Remember takes place on Saturday October 8, starting at 11:59 a.m., and will end on Sunday October 9, at 11:59 a.m. Gabi’s Olympic Cards and Comics is located at 4230 Pacific Ave. Lacey, WA 98503.If you are interested in contributing to the event by giving raffle prizes, support for the volunteers, or another great idea, please contact Catherine Pearce at cjanepearce@gmail.comLearn more about Game Night to Remember online here.last_img read more
