Default Rex Murphy nails it again

I haven't seen it on the "politics" thread so I'm going to say that this is definitely the speech that Trudeau should give: https://nationalpost.com/opinion/rex...-greater-reset.

I doubt that we'll ever hear it but perhaps we can vote for someone who will say it.

Trudeau already tried to give himself the powers of a dictator using covid as an excuse.

I did think that Mr. Murphy captured almost perfectly my feelings on the matter. I would have liked him to include Saskatchewan, but we can't have everything. Besides, Saskatchewan would benefit alongside Alberta.

Perhaps it would be a good idea to close every thread related to politics, so the discussions would have to be continued on this super thread?

Edmonton mayor won’t be seeking re-election... maybe the snow flakes can’t take the heat coming ( for all the future bike lanes and LRT issues )or he got a board seat lined up at some ice castle .

For those of you that made the error of posting on this thread like I did, you can unsubscribe to the thread so you don't get the endless drivel of follow on posts. Top bar of the thread there is a box called thread tools, click it open, the bottom choice is unsubscribe.

Great idea.

Covid-19 threads too.

The virus was allowed to go pandemic because of near zero advance planning and the rewarding of people for cutting our defensive measures, then all the political posturing nonsense when the virus actually arrived.

This makes me almost as happy as seeing an end to COVID would. He spent all the money, garnered huge debt, raised taxes and lowered services. Time to move on, mission accomplished. I guess that his plan for a Northern Utopia didn't pan out as well as he anticipated.

The readers digest version:

READ THEIR PRESS RELEASE HERE

“Costly and current legislation, such as the Order in Council prohibiting various firearms and the proposed “buy-back” program by the federal government targeted at legal firearm owners, does not address these current and emerging themes or urgent threats to public safety.

It also does not address:

• criminal activity,
• illegal firearms proliferation,
• gang crime,
• illegal guns crossing the border or
• the criminal use of firearms.

In fact, it diverts extremely important personnel, resources, and funding away from addressing the more immediate and growing threat of criminal use of illegal firearms.”

My bold.

Default 1 in 100?

Was that thread moved somewhere? I thought it maybe would be here, but am unable to find it.

Ishpah seems to have a burr in his saddle, boot and britches, would like to see what came of that discussion?

You know when FOX News runs an article like this ………… it's Game Over ……

from FOX news …….

WHAT IF TRUMP ACTUALLY DID IT?

Let’s imagine for a moment what might happen if President Trump actually succeeded in his efforts to get Republican elected officials in at least three swing states to overturn the results of this year’s election.

Yes, we know that this is almost impossibly far-fetched, but bear with us for a moment. Let’s say that the Republican-controlled legislatures in, say, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin were to disregard the election results and pick a slate of electors to cast their ballots for Trump.

Yes, we know that Democratic governors in those states would veto any such thing, but we are just following the thread laid out by Trump’s legal team.

Maybe mass protests and pro-Trump demonstrations change the calculus. Whatever it is, just grant us that somehow this would happen. By delaying certification, Trump & Co. somehow find a way to exert enough political pressure to actually overturn the results.

Can you imagine anything worse for the Republican Party?

After losing the national popular vote by more than 6 million ballots cast and being defeated in swing states by a more decisive margin than his own victory four years ago, Trump would somehow then get the House of Representatives to accept these irregular electors and declare him the winner.

We have heard a lot lately about the hard feelings among 74 million Americans who voted for Trump. How do you think the 80 million people who voted for Biden would be feeling at that point? How about the millions more who supported Trump despite their objections to his conduct?

To say that it would plunge the nation into chaos, disorder and danger is no exaggeration. The sight of a defeated president rigging the system to retain power would be a catastrophe for domestic governance and our national security. For Republicans, it would be a Chernobyl-scale meltdown.

As we have said before, we tend to think that what Trump is doing is more about delegitimizing President-elect Joe Biden and somehow maintaining the fiction among Trump’s core supporters that he didn’t really lose. In fact, the remoteness of success is what makes Trump’s conduct possible.

More and more Republicans are coming forward to tell the president to stop what he is doing, but many hold their tongues preferring to let the drama play out without having to alienate any of their own primary voters.

Outside of the reddest of red districts, however, things are turning ugly. Already some 70 percent of voters disapprove of Trump’s post-election conduct compared to less than a third who backed the president’s play.

Just imagine what that would like if even one of those states threw out the results and people started to take seriously the possibility that the Trump might retain power for another four years.

The best thing Republicans have going for them right now is that Trump’s effort is hard to take seriously. Heaven help them if that ever changes.

Trump actually tweeted a well written and coherent message ....I wonder who helped him write it ...

I want to thank Emily Murphy at GSA for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our Country. She has been harassed, threatened, and abused – and I do not want to see this happen to her, her family, or employees of GSA. Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail! Nevertheless, in the best interest of our Country, I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same.

Playing politics while people caught in the middle are just trying to keep their livelihoods alive. That’s also the problem with mandates.

as long as he doesn't tweet the opposite of "stand down, stand by", things should go ok'ish.

I'm sure some network is signing him up for a new TV Show, of some sort; 73 million people voted for him, hard numbers for a network to ignore.
