What lies at the heart of Garber’s grievance — other than the fact that Tucker Carlson hasn’t been banished from TV, deplatformed on social media, and generally silenced — is that millions of Americans don’t believe Joe Biden actually won the 2012 election. As I have elsewhere explained, skepticism toward the 2020 election is entirely justified, once you realize that Biden’s combined margin in four states — Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin and Nevada — adds up to slightly more than 75,000 votes. A little less than 13 million total votes were cast in those four states, which means that the average margin was around 0.6%. Flipping those four states from Biden to Trump would have shifted enough Electoral College votes to re-elect Trump. If you don’t think Democrats could find a way to fabricate an extra 12,000 Biden votes in Georgia or Arizona, you suffer from a deficit of imagination.
So while I certainly do not claim to have specific proof that the presidential election was “rigged,” it seems to me ludicrous for liberals to claim it’s a “conspiracy theory” to doubt the outcome. And that’s what the liberal media’s endless blabbering about QAnon is really about. What they’re saying is, “See? These right-wing kooks believe this bizarre stuff about satanic cannibal pedophiles, which is just slightly more outrageous that believing that Biden didn’t win the election.”
QAnon, in other words, is a special breed of “squirrel.” On the one hand, calling attention to a kooky fringe belief distracts from the real issues surrounding the 2020 election (e.g., universal mail-in balloting as an avenue for fraud) while, on the other hand, it serves as a convenient smear to discredit anyone expressing skepticism toward the result. If it can be shown that some election skeptics are also into QAnon, then it is easy to imply that every election skeptic is a conspiracy theorist.
Or, as I like to say, Q = Immanuel Goldstein. No one knows who or where he is, or what he really stands for but the Democrats and the media really want you to really hate him. And via the Wombat's In The Mailbox: 02.26.21 from Paul Bradford at Am Great The Imaginary Menace Behind Everything Wrong In America "This white supremacist bogeyman will continue to be seen as America’s primary threat and the one responsible for all manners of misdeeds." In a truly bizarre instance, from Ace, Lady GaGa's Dogs Dog-Napped; FBI Investigates Case To See If... TRUMP SUPPORTERS Kidnapped the Dog
No, really: They've decided to take jurisdiction in a local dog-napping because of the possibility that MAGA Terrorists kidnapped the dog because this idiot sang (or warbled) at Joe Biden's (fake) inauguration.
FBI investigates whether the dognapping of Lady Gaga's bulldogs was politically motivated because she sang at Biden's inauguration. . .
The FBI is reportedly probing whether the dognapping of Lady Gaga's bulldogs was politically motivated
Source claimed it could be politically motivated since she sang at President Joe Biden's inauguration
Update: I posted about this in the previous thread. The description of perps is "two black men" and I'm sure those two white supremacists were mad as hell that Gaga sang for brain impaired Joe. Posted by: FenelonSpoke

John Sexton at Hot, FBI Has Pinpointed Assailant In Assault On Officer Sicknick. Going with the bear spray hypothesis.
Authorities are getting closer to maybe answering how Officer Sicknick died. Today the NY Times reports the FBI has pinpointed a specific individuals but hasn’t identified him yet.
In a significant breakthrough in the case, investigators have now pinpointed a person seen on video of the riot who attacked several officers with bear spray, including Officer Sicknick, according to the officials. And video evidence shows that the assailant discussed attacking officers with the bear spray beforehand, one of the officials said.The first point to note is that this once again puts an end to the claim made early on that Sicknick died after being hit with a fire extinguisher. No one is claiming that now and the FBI appears to be zeroed in on the bear spray incident.
While investigators narrowed potential suspects seen in video footage to a single person this week, they have yet to identify the assailant by name…
In the hours after Officer Sicknick was rushed to the hospital, officials initially said that he had been struck with a fire extinguisher. They later said that there was no evidence to support that he had died from any blunt force trauma. More recently, F.B.I. officials homed in on the potential role of an irritant as a primary factor in his death.
That's going to make a murder conviction very difficult. Assuming this caused his death is a whole lot less plausible than assuming fentanyl killed George Floyd. If they do know who bear sprayed him, though, they should put him in jail. Now, who shot Ashli Babbit?
At the Pipeline in After the Leftist Reign of Terror, the Deluge George Morton likens our current politics to the French Revolution and it's aftermath. It might be a bit hyperbolic.
The Terror instituted mass conscription, confiscation of grain from the farmers (read: oil), set price controls on essential goods and wages (read: minimum wage), de-Christianized the country (read: well, that one’s obvious), arrests via the “Law of Suspects” of all opponents of the Revolution (read: the enemies list of former Trump employees), and in the final irony, established a national religion called (I kid you not) Cult of the Supreme Being and that Supreme Being allegedly was “Reason” (read: climate change).
That’s the chilling analogy. But there’s more, and here’s where things get interesting. . .

Sundance at CTH, Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Maricopa County Ballots. I wonder if they will suffer a convenient accident along the way. We wouldn't be half as suspicious if they didn't try to hide things quite so hard.
