"Maybe if we are blessed enough, we will see this movie go from black and white to full color (like in the Wizard of Oz). That would be a great Christmas present!" What a nice, cheerful :) analogy, ccgirl.

Romney just said he wants to collaborate with the incoming Democrats of the Biden Administration Pick the "true" definition: n. An associate in labor, especially in literary or scientific work. n. An associate in labor, especially in literary or scientific labor. n. one who willingly cooperates with an enemy, especially an enemy nation* occupying one's own country. *political party

This morning I was reading an article, can't remember where, but the writer said something about the level of fear and uncertainty that people have been through (during the past four years) and the natural outcome of this constant drubbing we've been under has put us in a state of anxiety. Well, no sh*t. Even though I know I'm going to get upset or angry or depressed or enraged, I can't stand not to get on here and read, then read all of the links. I try and stay away but I can't. It's foolish and simple, but I think staying informed helps Trump. :) Oh, just thought of something. I had sent $100 to Nunes back some time ago -- I can't even remember if I did it online or sent a check. I had decided that out of all of the senators or representatives that I'd supported, he should be recognized, too. Yesterday I got a Christmas card from him. Thought it was sweet (his family, three little girls and wife) -- it wasn't personal, think on one side it said his campaign, but it made me smile.

Also, on the question about Lin Wood being a little over the top (paraphrasing) -- I imagine if I'd seen what he's seen since he defended Sandman, I'd have already popped a gasket (as they said back in the Fifties). :) I get upset, angry, ready to fight, just reading a few comments at articles, or even reading places like lawfare -- during the Mueller investigation, I'd get sick to my stomach reading articles and the slimes agreeing in comments. Wood's probably seen a level of hatred and filth that even experienced politicians and attorneys have never seen as he's investigated this election fraud.

CH, 12:12: Yes, when I read the Jonathan Turley link posted here (didn't read the article), I thought 'the President can pardon anyone he wants to -- haven't we been told that forever? :) Thinking here about Clinton and Marc Rich ....

Momto2: I binged several seasons of Blacklist for awhile back in 2019 when I couldn't get over the flu. Really enjoyed it, so might have go back and take it up again.

I was sitting here thinking, after reading VDH's essay, and realized I wish I'd said 'I'm glad I believe in God, rather than being glad I'm a Christian -- not that I'm backing off of that. It's just that I inadvertently would irritate one of the attorneys I worked with. He was Jewish and if anything came up about religion, he'd complain Christians proselytized, and I'd say, 'Oh, no, Allan, not really,' and he'd get more angry, and I'd say, 'We all believe and love the same God.' Then he'd have me read a little essay of Eleanor Roosevelt's that he kept under the glass on his desk: "I believe that all that you go through here must have some value; therefore, there must be some reason behind it. And there must be something "going on." How, exactly, that happens I have not been able to decide. There is a future – of that I am sure of. But how that occurs, that I do not know. And I came to feel that it wouldn't really matter very much because whatever the future held, you would have to face it when you came to it, just as whatever life holds you have to face it entirely the same way. "Meet it with courage and with the best that you have to give. And the important thing is that you never let down doing the best that you are able to do -- it might be poor because you might not have very much within yourself to give, or to help other people with, or to live your life with. But as long as you did the very best that you were able to do, then that was what you were put here to do and that was what you were accomplishing by being here. "And so I have tried to follow that -- and not to worry about the future or what was going to happen. I think I am pretty much a fatalist. You have to accept whatever comes and the only important thing is that you continue to do your best." I liked it so one day (when he was out) I copied it down. As I started trying to explain my other post, I got worried "are you trying to explain something and end up making it worse" because the subject is so broad and deep that I can't express it coherently and probably am bound to offend someone, which I do in my own life "a lot" -- I've been accused many times of speaking before thinking. Funny thing is, I thought about this before I started typing, and still posted it. Complex subject. :) I'm not a complex or deep thinker. As I've said several times on here, all I have to contribute is emotion -- not much else. :)

I'm glad I am a Christian -- no ethics or morality would convince me to be good -- when I think of people like Judge Sullivan and so many other people who thrive on base corruption and evil. This and this alone keeps me focused and confident in this troubled world.

Today my relative is talking about how Fox News and Republican voters created a monster, including us, and how we're paying for it. Worrisome, to be thought of that way.

Narciso, that's what I was trying to copy and paste from the article at meaninginhistory.com. I'm so glad you got it over here. I watched the Jordan zsekulow bit at CTH but figured it might be received with groans ... because promises of what's coming. People get discouraged waiting ... especially since we've been waiting for justice from Peopleike Barr, Durham, .... I'd add Wray but that would really draw groans.

jane, at 1:45: lol. lol. I'm so nervous I can't sit still. I was looking for a semi-good football game but the announcers made me antsy so I have the tv muted. I've been cleaning glass shelves and polishing silver and just generally making myself busy -- but I got so tired awhile ago I sat back down, got online and started hunting for information. I think my point when I started this post was to agree about the 'old' part -- Most of the time I don't feel my age, but the terrible schism in our country and our personal lives is difficult to deal with. Today is Bedlam. Usually the day starts about 7 a.m. with a 'Boomer' from our son and a 'Sooner' response from various locations here (my sister, my husband, and then me, and an Orange Power from our daughter who graduated from OSU). We haven't heard a thing from our son.

This article was mentioned at meaning in history, too: https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2020/11/the_trump_teams_real_strategy.html First few paragraphs: "To endure the Democrat-Media Complex’s blackout of any discussion of credible allegations of voter fraud or election rigging is tough enough. But watching the conservative media grapple with the Trump team’s claims of election fraud as presented by Sidney Powell, Lin Wood, and Rudi Giuliani is downright dizzying. In stark contrast to the analysis provided daily by Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin, is the stultifying commentary by Tucker Carlson and, let’s say, a has-been who never was like Erick Erickson. I’m no Pollyanna and I do not have any insider information about the current state of the election, but I would like to tamp down a bit on the hysteria with my own perspective. "On November 19th, Tucker Carlson went into a Diva-style tirade about Sidney Powell’s failure to produce any evidence substantiating her claims that the election was corrupted by the Dominion voting system and whined about her refusal to go on his show and PRODUCE! THE! EVIDENCE! Trust me when I say conservatives were flipping out when Carlson went down this road. Expect his ratings to dip."

Has anyone joined rumble? I wanted to read the comments at that article on rumble and it said I had to join. So I looked for the guy who started it, Chris Pavlovski, and then checked their team and mission statement. Somehow I landed at Parler and a comment by Pavlovski about an interview with Devin Nunes: "This by far the best interview and analysis I've ever seen on what's happening in our world today. How social media controls our lives cannot be understated, @Devinnunes and @JanJekielek break it down better than anyone ever has!" Then somehow I clicked on a parler link and saw Dinesh D'Sousa has thousands of subscribers at rumble, and Sara Carter just started a channel there, too.

Yes, OL, he's alone. I get sick to my stomach thinking about how truly alone he is -- I've always told myself since this started in 2016 that he would fight until he wins or drops -- but if he does go down in defeat, he will be biting someone's ankles as he falls. I can't imagine what he's been put through these past few years, and I pray for him several times a day.

This was in the comment section at meaning in history: https://rumble.com/vbas2t-smoking-gun-dominion-transferring-vote-ratios-between-precincts-in-pa.-by-e.html It has a video and then explanation. I thought these paragraphs were interesting: "To hide it's trail, Dominion reassigns the same "ratio set" to different (random) precincts throughout the day, so that the same precinct doesn't keep getting the exact same ratio (or the same set of precincts). "During a particular period of time while a precinct is selected, it gives Trumps an EXACT NUMBER of votes, it gives Biden a MINIMUM number of votes, and splits the small remainder to a third party or to Biden (via random assignment). "This explains why Jo Jorg got so many votes in every precinct (I'm a Libertarian and I know very few libertarians who voted for Jo this year, due to the importance of this monumental election).""

https://meaninginhistory.blogspot.com/2020/11/recommended-best-interview-so-far-with.html#comment-form Here are the first couple of paragraphs: "Larry O'Connor (h/t sundance) has the most intelligent, informed, interview I've heard so far with Sidney Powell regarding the case she plans to bring within the next two weeks. O'Connor is well prepared and asks many of the right questions. He moves the interview along (just about 20 minutes) but allows Powell to answer fully. Powell for her part is quite forthcoming. "Highlights: "Powell is not plugged into any single theory of fraud--she recognizes several possibilities and combinations of possibilities. In that regard she discusses some of the evidence that has so far been gathered, while stressing that this process remains ongoing. "Between now and December 14 her goal is to have "the outline" of a case ready to file in federal court--it's a matter right now of coming to grips with huge amounts of evidence, and that process will continue."

Bruce Bawer's article at American Greatness is beautiful. I can remember that election so well -- I was a Goldwater fan. What a nightmare our country got with LBJ -- and, as Bawer said, the fucking press was his biggest fan.

I'm late to today's discussion, but as far as Tucker, I felt anger roll over me as he went on the offensive about wanting evidence or a phone call from Sidney Powell. She is engaged in the fight of her life. He is a mere television host. Wonder how he'd act if he was badgered during an extreme crisis by some tv host? As far as I'm concerned we are in a fight for our country. Yes, you can criticize Rudy for sweating and his hair dye. Yes, you can criticize Powell for her garbled voice. But we're all sitting out here, no pressure, while they are in a fight with the worst corruption I've seen in my lifetime. We're being forced to quarantine, wear masks -- I hate the masks, but I want to go into the store. I sometimes wonder 'here I hate wearing this mask, how angry, sad, scared, and helpless the Jewish people must have felt, wearing those yellow badges. And, I got a letter today from Senator Lankford telling me how grateful he is -- for all of the goodness in our lives and how we should be grateful. Grateful for family and friends. Grateful we can enjoy Thanksgiving with our family ... and please do what they tell you about not enjoying it with a wider family. Well, here's the return letter I sent him: Senator Lankford, I was grateful to you for temporarily supporting President Trump during the past few months -- this was after no public support for him during the lies and travesty of the Russia investigation. I emailed you asking you to support him -- your reply was that 'we' need to investigate if Russia had interfered with our election, this was during a time when your Republican colleague, Devin Nunes (with evidence he saw in a SCIF) was open and supportive of the President. Perhaps you don't like or approve of our President as a person, but he has been a great leader. Just recently, you again have failed him -- instead of remaining silent or supporting him (with the full knowledge of the massive cheating of the Democrats in this election) you openly chide him about a transition of power -- which should never happen. You are, by your actions, supporting the corrupt Biden-Harris group, as well as a media who hates President Trump, and who lies to us, his supporters. I am sick at heart over what will happen to our country if this corrupt administration takes the helm. You should be working with President Trump, not adding your voice to a media, a Democrat party that hates people like me. I am so sad and heartbroken. Sincerely, Joan
