“Like watching Bigfoot riding the Loch Ness Monster…” – I want to start this morning’s Roundup with an incident involving Creepy China Traitor Joe Potato Head Biden and CBS reporter Bo Erickson, because it is incredibly instructive of the media’s utter and complete failure – frankly, refusal – to do its job related to the fake President-elect.
Let’s start with a tweet Erickson sent out yesterday:
Due to a last minute change of schedule, President-elect Biden left without his protective press pool. We watched him drive by as our bus was getting swept and now we are trying to catch up to Biden at TBD location. pic.twitter.com/k4rWME8R1H

Note the phrase “protective press pool”. “PROTECTIVE…press…pool”. PROTECTIVE???
What in the hell does that even mean? Have you ever seen any corrupt reporter at any of the fake news media outlets refer to the White House press corps as President Trump’s “protective” press pool? More like Trump’s vicious, despicably fake press pool.
Did Erickson just slip up and publicly admit the role Biden’s group of shameless media hack toadies have played related to his campaign over the last 10 months? Probably.
But that didn’t score the CBS hack toady any brownie points when he dared to – gasp! – actually ask Biden a semi-real question at an event on the same day. From a report by Jonathan Turley:
We have been discussing the embarrassing failure of the media to ask President-elect Joe Biden any difficult questions throughout the campaign and creating a type of protective journalistic cocoon around him. That pattern has continued after the election with pre-selected reporters asking laughingly soft ball questions to Biden while continuing a virtual blackout on such stories as the Hunter Biden influence peddling controversy. Then something bizarre happened yesterday. A reporter actually asked Biden a real question. CBS News reporter Bo Erickson asked Biden about whether he would support the CDC rather than the teacher’s union on closing schools. Biden’s response was a personal attack on the reporter. This is simply not done and will not be tolerated. After all, think of the chaos: the entire press corps would be expected to ask questions and Biden would be expected to answer them.
Bo Erickson previously drew a rebuke from Biden when he asked for a response to the Hunter Biden scandal. He simply asked ‘Mr. Biden, what is your response to the New York Post story about your son, sir?’ Biden’s response was again a personal attack: “I know you’d ask it. I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.”
Biden also blew up at a question that referred by the scandal by a NBC reporter and at a Fox reporter who asked about his son. Those are the only known cases where the cone of silence was violated around Biden . . . until yesterday.
Erickson asked Biden a question on the way out of the room where Biden was meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer: “Mr Biden, the COVID task force said it’s safe for children to be back in class.”
That would be an important and reasonable question. The CDC is not recommending the closure of schools since studies show an exceptionally low risk for such children. There are serious costs to such closures for both children and their parents ranging from the loss of educational advancement, depression, employment problems, and other issues.
Yet, for the public and press corp, the appearance of a reporter asking an actual substantive question of Biden was like watching Big Foot riding the Lock Ness Monster through conference room. The only evidence that it was real and not a mirage was Biden’s swift rebuke.
Get ready for four years of this crap unless the Trump legal team can win its cases at the U.S. Supreme Court.
Speaking of that, the Pennsylvania case is moving right along. – Yes, that case was dismissed by a federal district judge on Saturday. But that judge – Matthew Brann – is an appointee of [drum roll…..] Barack Hussein Obama. Go figure.
The key here is that Judge Brann only sat on the case for a few days before issuing his dismissal, which is exactly the result the Trump legal team was hoping for since it allows them now to appeal the case up through the chain.
From a story at Breitbart:
President Donald Trump’s campaign lawyers said Saturday they would file an appeal to the Third Circuit court after a federal judge dismissed a lawsuit to challenge the results of the election in Pennsylvania.
Trump 2020 attorneys former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said in a statement:
“Today’s decision turns out to help us in our strategy to get expeditiously to the U.S. Supreme Court. Although we fully disagree with this opinion, we’re thankful to the Obama-appointed judge for making this anticipated decision quickly, rather than simply trying to run out the clock.”
The lawsuit argued that the legal guarantee of “equal protection under the law” was violated after counties where voters were primarily Democrats took different approaches than counties where voters were primarily Republicans to help voters with problems with their mail-in ballots.
The media of course will focus on the dismissal and claim Giuliani and Sidney Powell and the rest of the legal team is incompetent, but this is exactly the outcome they wanted. None of these cases in any of these various states are ultimately going to be decided at the district court or various courts of appeals: They’re going to the Supreme Court, where it will come down to whether they can convince 5 of 9 justices that the election was rigged.
Thus, in Pennsylvania, it’s so far, so good for the Trump legal team.
Meanwhile, in Georgia… – Now that Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has finished his useless recount that he falsely claimed would include both an “audit and re-canvassing” of the ballots, the Trump team filed a lawsuit on Saturday demanding that both now take place.
From a story at JustTheNews:
President Trump’s campaign formally has requested a recount in the state of Georgia, arguing that an audit that found Joe Biden still leads by more than 12,000 votes wasn’t sufficient to detect fraud.
“Today, the Trump campaign filed a petition for recount in Georgia,” the campaign announced Saturday. “We are focused on ensuring that every aspect of Georgia State Law and the U.S. Constitution are followed so that every legal vote is counted.
Trump’s campaign said it wanted the recount to include signature matching to police for possible fraud.
“President Trump and his campaign continue to insist on an honest recount in Georgia, which has to include signature matching and other vital safeguards. Without signature matching, this recount would be a sham and again allow for illegal votes to be counted.”
Note that even Raffensperger’s rigged recount ended up finding more than 2,000 net new votes for President Trump. A true audit that really does match signatures to ballots and ensures the “voters” were actually among the living is likely to disqualify many multiples of that number.
Georgia is now back on track.
More evidence for the Trump team to use in court. – Data Analyst Edward Solomon performed a very interesting analysis show how he claims the Dominion Systems software was used to switch Trump votes to Biden in Pennsylvania.
It’s too long and involved to include here, but go take a look at it – it’s quite compelling.
About that whole Scytl raid… – I have avoided discussing this topic here for the simple fact that there is no real, compelling evidence that any such thing ever happened. But, on his Twitter feed yesterday, Adam Housley, a real journalist who has proven to be trustworthy, put up a pair of very interesting tweets related to this story:
2/2 1.There is/was a clandestine location in Frankfurt run by CIA used to monitor/manipulate elections around globe. 2.That location did have servers & a front company as cover. 3.I cannot confirm the location was tied to U.S. elections. 4. One source says raided, 2 don't know

A couple of things about this:
– It is entirely believable that the CIA does indeed run a clandestine location that is used to monitor and manipulate elections, both foreign and domestic. Indeed it is a matter of clear public record that the CIA has been manipulating foreign elections since the early 1950s – anyone who believes that that behavior has somehow changed in the 21st century lives in an alternate universe.
– It is entirely believable, even likely, that the CIA snakes and skunks would attempt to manipulate our election using the Dominion Systems and Smartmatic software applications.
Having said all of that, we still have zero proof that any of this took place, but Housley’s tweets sure are interesting.
That is all.
