Election 2020: Still on the Midnight Train Through Georgia

We still seem to have Georgia on our minds. I'll start with this report from AllahPundit at Hot Hair, who claims  MLB commissioner yanked All-Star Game after speaking with Stacey Abrams, which is odd because now she's against the boycott, because it hurts Georgia. Unintended consequences. 

Stacey Abrams? The same Stacey Abrams who’s been telling voters in Georgia ahead of her next run for governor in 2022 that she’s against boycotts for fear of the economic damage they’ll do to lower-income workers?

From Breitbart, Gov. Brian Kemp: Stacey Abrams Is ‘Biggest Flip-Flopper Since John Kerry’ on Georgia Boycott. She probably didn't think they'd do it, so she could continue to race-bait. Charles Gasparino on Twitter: 

SCOOP: @MLB sources say owners were blindsided at least by the timing of @RobManfred's decision to pull the All-Star game from Atlanta. Also said his decision came after speaking w @staceyabrams, which is odd since she has now said she's against the boycott. Story developing" 
SCOOP: @MLB execs also fearing significant fan backlash over @RobManfred's decision on moving All Star game out of Atl more now 
Also hearingMLB working on a possible "solution" to after criticism that moving the All Star game out of Atl will be devastating to minority businesses will address that as well

WSJ, Rob Manfred’s All-Star Error "The commissioner politicized baseball over a law he likely hadn’t examined."  Spectator USA,  Major League Baseball has made a major mistake "Liberal activists and journalists think their Twitter accounts reflect the national mood"

They're mostly invoking China's "Cultural Revolution"

Another asterisk for Biden's "victory."Matt Margolis again, Trump Vindicated as Judge Rules Michigan Secretary of State Violated Election Laws
A judge in Michigan has vindicated President Trump by ruling that Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat, broke state law when she unilaterally changed election rules concerning absentee balloting in the 2020 election. This ruling legitimizes a key claim made by the Trump legal team in its challenges to the 2020 election.

A major change imposed by Benson was loosening the signature verification requirement for absentee ballots. Michigan Court of Claims Chief Judge Christopher Murray ruled that this change violated Michigan Administrative Procedures Act.

The court made the following conclusion:
…nowhere in this state’s election law has the Legislature indicated that signatures are to be presumed valid, nor did the Legislature require that signatures are to be accepted so long as there are any redeeming qualities in the application or return envelope as compared with the signature on file. Policy determinations like the one at issue — which places the thumb on the scale in favor of a signature’s validity — should be made pursuant to properly promulgated rules under the APA or by the Legislature.
Over 3.1 million Michiganders voted by absentee ballot in November. Biden “won” the state by just over 154,000 votes, according to the state-certified results.

And another on the horizon? Sundance, Democrat Lawfare Group Including Perkins Coie Sends Legal Threat to Group Auditing Maricopa County Election. If they didn't cheat, why do they resist all attempts to investigate?

This is very interesting… and it appears the professional Democrat machine is increasingly apoplectic at the Maricopa, Arizona, ballot audit approved by the state senate and affirmed by the state courts.

The Arizona legislature authorized a full and comprehensive audit of Maricopa County’s 2020 election ballots.

The Maricopa County board of elections has thrown every roadblock against the state legislature trying to block the audit. However, a state judge agreed with the legislative intent and affirmed the authority of the audit. Then the county board held an emergency secret meeting and refused to allow the auditors to use their facilities. {Go Deep}

Part of the audit authorization (included in the state’s audit instructions) was for a limited canvassing of actual voters; meaning the auditors can go to the homes/locations of people/groups and verify they actually voted or submitted the ballots attributed to them. This ability to go directly to the source has triggered a politically connected legal team known as “Protect Democracy” into another level of panic. The Protect Democracy group uses Clinton’s infamous law firm Perkins Coie.

Perkins Coie is threatening the contracted auditing agency, Florida-based Cyber Ninjas, with legal action if they follow through with their authority and question the voters who are attributed as sources of thousands of ballots in single geographic locations. [Perkins Coie Threat Letter Here]

  Nick Arama at Red State, Cause of Death Comes in for Folks Who Died at Capitol Riot

According to MSN, Dr. Francisco Diaz, the chief medical examiner of Washington, D.C. announced the determination as to cause of death:
• Ashli Babbitt, 35, died by homicide from a gunshot to the left shoulder. She was shot by a Capitol police officer while trying to climb through a door near the House chamber.

• Kevin Greeson, 55, died of natural causes from cardiovascular disease.

• Benjamin Phillips, 50, died of natural causes from cardiovascular disease.

• Roseanne Boyland, 34, died by accident from acute amphetamine intoxication.. . .
But the real shocker, perhaps, is the cause of death of Boyland. Boyland’s cause of death had been reported as potentially being crushed/stepped on by the crowd. Folks on the left cruelly mocked her carrying of the Gadsden flag, joking that she’d been tread on. Media blamed the death on the crowd of Trump supporters. But this determination makes it clear that, once again, the wrong cause of death was being peddled, just as it had in the initial reporting on the death of Officer Brian Sicknick. Initially, Sicknick’s death was claimed to be a result of being hit with a fire extinguisher. Media later backed off that claim when no evidence that that ever occurred could be produced. We pointed out on Jan. 10 that it may not be as the media was claiming.

But once again, the death of Sicknick is still pending and that’s incredibly concerning and there are questions as to why. This is months, at this point, with his family also waiting. His death was wrongly used for political purposes. Two men have been charged with assault on Sicknick for allegedly spraying him with a chemical spray but they haven’t been charged in his death. Why is it taking so long to come out with a determination? At this point, we can only think there may be political reasons that the cause of death is being held up. If the reason is he died of a stroke, as the family believes may have been the case, that might take away from the Democratic narrative about murder.
