Tuesday News Roundup: The GSA Concedes, but Trump and His Legal Team Fight On

Emily Murphy, Director of the General Services Administration, conceded on Monday that it is likely that Joe Biden/Kamala Harris “won” the November 3 election, and authorized the beginning of the formal transition process.

This administrative move means basically nothing in the grand scheme of things. The election remains up in the air and the Trump legal team, which scored wins in Michigan and Pennsylvania yesterday, will “keep up the good fight,” as the President himself said in a tweet:

The President’s statement that Murphy has been “harassed, threatened and abused” is no doubt true given that we’re talking about Biden-voting Democrats and their despicable media toadies here.

So, Biden and his team will start getting their briefings, and the transition process will move ahead, and it will amount to just more DC Swamp Kabuki Theater signifying nothing. The same Kabui Theater took place for both George W. Bush and Al Gore during the weeks-long controversy and recounts in Florida that followed the 2000 election.

This is what our country does.

Boy, are Bernie Sanders and AOC shocked and disappointed. – China Joe Potato Head Biden continues to build out his incoming globalist-infested team. If Sanders, AOC and Elizabeth Warren thought they were going to pressure Biden and Designated Successor-Elect Harris to construct a cabinet and group of “Czars” filled with revolutionaries,  they are no doubt thoroughly disappointed by what they have seen thus far.

On Monday, Biden’s team of handlers named former Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yelen to be his Treasury Secretary. He also named the very French surrender monkey John Francois Kerry to be his “Climate Czar.” So, basically, he’s rebuilding the Obama team that gave us the Paris Climate Accords, the Iran Nuclear Agreement and 1% economic growth into perpetuity.

Other than the whole re-focus on the Church of Global Climate Change religion, this is not at all what Democrat Party radicals had in mind. Hell, Fauxcahontas wanted to be Treasury Secretary herself. Imagine the warpath she is cutting this morning. Yelen in that post will represent very little change in status quo other than a steadfast opposition to cutting taxes.

Kerry gets to resume his preferred lifestyle, that of a wandering envoy who gets to live in the finest hotels Central Europe has to offer and negotiate global agreements that surrender American wealth and national security, all funded and paid for by the U.S. taxpayer. You can expect to see scenes of Lurch meeting with Iranian counterparts at outdoor cafes in Paris, Davos, Budapest and Vienna very soon.

Some key wins for the Trump Team. – Meanwhile, despite all of its turmoil, the Trump Legal Team scored victories in two states yesterday:

From a story at PJMedia:

The Michigan state legislature has agreed to hold a hearing about election irregularities in the state. In addition to this development, a federal appeals court has agreed to an expedited election review in Pennsylvania.

“We are grateful to Michigan House lawmakers for not rushing to certify inaccurate election results,” Trump campaign legal adviser Jenna Ellis told Just the News. “We are confident they will share the same concerns once they see the extent of the outright fraud and disregard for the law that happened in Michigan and across the nation. Every American should want to know the truth.”

Ellis also responded to the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that Trump’s “motion for emergency expedited review is granted at the direction of the court.”

“We are grateful to the Third Circuit for accepting an expedited review,” Jenna Ellis said.

The news comes on the heels of federal judge Matthew W. Brann dismissing the Trump campaign’s lawsuit against Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth Kathy Boockvar on Saturday.

“There was no legal reason to deny our amended complaint, other than pure politics and judicial activism,” Ellis continued. “This was an Obama-appointed judge whose opinion was rife with errors. We hope the appellate court will recognize that and properly give us our day in court. The American people deserve for us be able to bring forward our witnesses and evidence showing election fraud — this is at the heart election integrity and fundamental fairness.”

As discussed here yesterday, the need for speed in these cases is crucial, and the Pennsylvania case is hurrying right along towards a date with the Supreme Court, where all of this will ultimately be decided. It is key that the Supremes have time to render their decisions in whatever cases they agree to hear before December 14, when the Electoral College will meet to cast the votes of the electors, none of which will be mailed in.

So, good news all around in those two cases.

The COVID Panic Porn is coming at us hot and heavy now. – Take a look at these clips from CNN and MSNBC as examples:

So, eat alone, and if you don’t eat alone, at least turn your music down so nobody sings. Hooboy.

Meanwhile, Quantas Airlines and the German government provide more stark warnings of what all of this panic porn ultimately leads to:

You don’t have to believe me – Just look at what’s already happening in Oregon:

From the Washington Times story:

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown wants residents to call the police on their neighbors over violations of the state’s latest coronavirus shutdown, which includes a six-person limit on in-home gatherings.

The temporary “freeze,” which went into effect Wednesday, restricts indoor at-home and social gatherings to six people from no more than two households, with no exceptions for Thanksgiving dinner get-togethers.

In a Friday virtual interview with KGW-TV, Ms. Brown agreed that Oregonians should contact authorities if they see their neighbors hosting more than six people.

“Look, this is no different than what happens if there’s a party down the street and it’s keeping everyone awake. What do neighbors do? They call law enforcement because it’s too noisy,” the Democratic governor told KGW. “This is just like that. It’s like a violation of a noise ordinance.”

Those committing infractions could face misdemeanor penalties of up to 30 days in jail, fines of up to $1,250, or both, according to the governor’s executive order.

[End]

To paraphrase the fascist Gov. Brown: look, this is no different than what Hitler urged German citizens to do when they discovered Jews hiding from the Gestapo and the SS.

If you think this is as draconian as these aspiring Central American banana republic dictators are going to get, well, you are in for one hell of a surprise.

That is all.
