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

Duterte orders LGUs to check all buildings in quake-hit Mindanao

first_img “Well, it is time for the LGUs (local government units) to inspect all — all buildings. Umpisahan na nila ngayon. The earthquake season has come. I don’t know if it will occur again between now and tomorrow,” Duterte said in statement. The damages to infrastructure following the series of quakes have convinced the Palace that it was “high time” to amend Republic Act 6541, or the National Building Code of the Philippines. “We are also calling on the legislature to amend the National Building Code to avoid further structural danger during natural disasters,” said Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar in a statement. According to Andanar, it’s high time to revamp and tighten this outdated law as its current framework is very lax. center_img MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered for the immediate inspection of all buildings in Mindanao following series of earthquakes that has now claimed 22 lives. “Letus not wait for a disaster to happen before we become strict in grantingbuilding permits,” he stressed./PNlast_img read more
