Dear Joe DiGenova: You are not being helpful. – Why the President would entertain having Joe DiGenova as a part of his legal team in the election fraud fight is anyone’s guess. But it turned into a big fiasco during yesterday’s informal fact-finding hearing in Arizona. Jonathan Turley summed up my feelings on the matter pretty succinctly:
…It does not help our political situation (or the President's legal case) to engage in such hyperbole. This country is a virtual powder keg and, while I do not believe that he was calling for violence, the distinction will be lost on some in these dangerous times.

Not helpful, Joe. Not helpful at all. Go away.
As for the rest of that hearing, legislators in attendance heard tons of testimony from witnesses to the rampant election fraud efforts that went down in their state – especially in Maricopa County – on Election Day. A parade of witnesses testified to abuse of the process by Democrat election officials and regarding the insecurities of the Dominion Systems machines and software in use in Arizona.
Unfortunately for the Trump effort, the only part of the hearing that got any traction with the corrupt news media was DiGenova’s idiotic outburst, so the hearing did little to advance the Trump cause. It’s important to note here that, like the hearing held last Friday in Pennsylvania, this was not a formal hearing called by the Speaker of the House or Senate President in Arizona, which would have been extraordinary given that the legislature there is not currently in session.
As a result, despite the promises given by the Republican members in attendance to seek a special session to reconsider the state’s process for choosing its electors, there is very little likelihood for that actually taking place, just as there is virtually zero chance that GOP legislators in Pennsylvania or any of the other states in question will summon the political will to act.
I have warned you all along that the courts are literally the President’s only chance at reversing these election results, and his court cases are long shots as well. That is not because his cause isn’t just – it clearly is – but because getting any legislature or court to act to do the right thing here requires an extraordinary act of political or judicial courage on their part.
The vast majority of GOP politicians and judges are cowards at heart. They talk a good game but seldom possess the courage to follow through in their official actions. There are 10 dozen Lamar Alexanders and Lisa Murkowskis in the GOP for every Ted Cruz or Rand Paul.
Any legislator or judge who acts to overturn these reported election results is going to come under withering assault from potentially violent leftist activists and the entirety of our corrupt media establishment. It is a rare politician or judge indeed who will be willing to invite such an assault on themselves and their family members by acting to do the right thing.
Instead, we are almost certain to see the public posturing by legislators we have seen thus far in PA, AZ and Michigan, but that will be followed by a decided lack of real action. Where the judiciary is concerned, the U.S. Supreme Court is really the only hope for the President and his supporters. We can be certain that John Roberts will timidly side with the three communist justices on the court, meaning that every one of the five conservative members would have to hold together in the face of the media/Democrat assault.
A new poll this week shows that 47% of Americans now believe – correctly – that this was a stolen election. But there remains very little good reason to be optimistic that any of the fraud will be reversed. That’s just me dealing with reality, folks. You should all deal with it, too.
Here’s a great example of that sad reality. – Arizona Governor Mike Ducey, a nominal Republican, eagerly certified the state’s election results as the informal hearing was taking place, and promised to quickly swear-in Democrat Mark Kelley to take over the senate seat currently held by Republican Martha McSally, who Kelly supposedly defeated in the election. Because that’s the kind of thing fake Republicans like Ducey do.
Here’s an excerpt from a report at Mediaite, noting that Ducey apparently ignored a last minute call from the President himself while in the process of pandering to his Democrat masters:
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey received a phone call in the middle of a live broadcast of an election certifying ceremony that confirmed his state’s electors would vote for President-elect Joe Biden. Ducey blew off the phone call, which, judging by the ringtone and Gov. Ducey’s previous account, was a phone call directly from President Donald Trump.
That’s right. Trump appeared to make a last-ditch phone call to Gov. Ducey to keep him from certifying the election results, and the governor ignored the call. The most embarrassing part? It was captured on camera.
The moment was first noted by Arizona local news host Brahm Resnik, which the producers at Morning Joe cleverly cut with footage with Ducey’s prior admission that he had customized the ringtone on his phone to play Hail to the Chief every time President Trump rang him directly. As you can see and hear in the footage above, the incoming call’s ringtone is definitely Hail to the Chief.
Note to Arizona voters: When presented by your state GOP with limp-wristed RINO candidates like Doug Ducey, just vote for the Democrat instead. You will be less disgusted with the results of your actions.
Over in Georgia, the Secretary of State who keeps bragging about how “secure” his election was, Brad Raffensperger, admitted on Monday that his office is investigating no less than “250 cases of credible claims” of election fraud.
From a report at DailyWire:
“As we move forward in the process, we will, as we always have been, we will continue to investigate credible claims of illegal voting and violation of state election law,” Raffensperger said. “There are currently over 250 open cases from 2020 and we have 23 investigators to follow up on that. Some of these include, a charge Gwinnett County that absentee ballots outnumber absentee envelopes. This is the kind of specific charge that our office can investigate and ascertain the truth.”
“We have multiple investigations underway surrounding absentee ballots in Fulton, Gwinnett, Cobb, and many others. We continue our investigations into potential dead, double voters, and non-resident voters,” he continued. “As we move to the December 1st election, which is tomorrow, and the January 5th federal runoffs, we have to remain vigilant.”
“That is why I’m announcing an investigation into third party groups working to register people in other states to vote here in Georgia,” he added. “We have opened an investigation into a group called America Votes who is sending absentee ballot applications to people at addresses where they have not lived since 1994; Vote Forward, who attempted to register a dead Alabama voter, a woman, to vote here in Georgia; The New Georgia Project, who sent voter registration applications to New York City, at Operation New Voter Registration Georgia, who is telling college students in Georgia that they can change their residency to Georgia and then change it back after the election.”
Raffensperger concluded the press conference by repeatedly reminding people that committing election fraud in Georgia, which includes voting in the state when a person is not a resident of the state, is a felony.
Oh. So, maybe the election wasn’t all that “secure” after all, huh?
Be careful about this one, though: Anyone expecting Raffensperger and his investigators to really conduct good-faith investigations of all of these myriad claims of fraud should remember that this is the man who has steadfastly refused to conduct anything resembling a real audit of absentee and mail-in ballots in his state.
This guy is part of the problem, not a part of any solution.
Good to see CNN latching onto reality here. – While all of that was going on, the despicable news-fakers at CNN suddenly discovered what the rest of us have understood since February: That China has not exactly been up-front with the rest of the world where COVID-19 is concerned.

Welcome to the party, pals!
It really is the alien’s, y’all. – Remember that metal monolith that mysteriously just appeared in the remote wilderness of Utah last week? Yeah, the Bureau of Land Management officials who discovered it found out on Sunday that it has just as mysteriously disappeared:
