It became apparent on election night in 2016 that the 2020 presidential election was going to be a hair-raising psychedelic shitshow of the first order simply because it would be El Caudillo del Mar-a-Lago who would be running for re-election. The events of the past three years have done little to correct this original impression. And the events of the past three or four months have pushed even the wildest speculation arising in 2016 into a universe of pure uncut crazy that would make the Founders wonder if they should’ve gotten out of the business entirely. A national upheaval on race and policing, on top of a pandemic, on top of impeachment, on top of the continued presence in government housing of this particular president*. Right now, there are many of our fellow citizens whose minds have been tossed into the blender and From Channel 13 in Grand Rapids, MI:
This comes in response to Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson sending absentee ballot applications to all Michigan voters ahead of the August and November elections. Benson said this move ensures that voters do not have to choose between their right to vote and their health, as the state moves toward the recovery phase of the COVID-19 pandemic.Karl Manke, an Owosso, Mich., barber who defied coronavirus related stay-home orders and reopened his shop early last month, will light the bonfire. People attending the event are encouraged to bring “unsolicited, absentee ballot applications to be incinerated, under protest,” reads a press release about the event...Organizers of Friday’s protest called the event “The Recall & Revolution,” in addition to the absentee voter application bonfire, a recall petition for Whitmer will be passed around. A flyer for the event reads: “Together we will gather and burn all of the taxpayer funded applications, illegally sent to us from SOS Benson.” In 2018, Michigan voters approved a measure allowing for no-reason absentee voting.
im电竞官网-The voters decided that this was legal back in 2018, so what the secretary of state did is in no way “illegal,” no matter what constitutional scholar Karl The Barber thinks. And I suppose the logic of 40-odd years of the anti-tax movement was going to come around eventually to the notion that self-government itself was a waste of the taxpayers money. There will be more of this to come; the veteran Grift-O-Mat that is Judicial Watch is in court in California trying to stop Governor Gavin Newsom from making voting easier and safer during a massive international health crisis. Yes, there will be more of this.
And speaking of California, there’s another story out there that that national mind has been hauled since 2016. From the Sacramento Bee:
One of the rumors stemmed from a photo which went viral throughout El Dorado Hills and Folsom, claiming that carloads of rioters were on their way into neighborhoods. The incident prompted residents to call law enforcement, and the photo caught the attention of a congressional candidate. “This is not a joke,” read the Facebook post. “They are currently in my nieces neighborhood. Where are all my Second Amendment Peeps at?? May need to call on you today.”The photo depicted nearly 20 young men and women, the majority of whom were black, walking through an upscale El Dorado Hills neighborhood. In reality, the image was of an ambitious entrepreneurial group touring homes...
..., a Republican running for California’s 7th Congressional District against Democratic Rep. Ami Bera, warned El Dorado Hills residents of possible protests and responding to at least one person to stay indoors. Patterson shared a May 31 tweet that he said confirmed protesters were targeting the suburbs. “It’s time to move this to Roseville, I’m talkin ELK GROVE !! EL DORADO! They’re the ones that need to hear this,” the tweet from Elk Grove resident Josh Cagibula read. “URGENT!: CA-7, looks like Antifa and rioters are targeting Roseville, Folsom, El Dorado Hills, and Elk Grove tonight! Stay safe and please notify your family and friends!” Patterson that was shared more than 1,000 times.
And this cluck is running for Congress. Yes, there will be more of this because the incumbent president* has decided to run for re-election to the office of President of the United States of Freaking Bedlam.
