Haha. Nice. I imagine Trump in late 2021, or anytime after: "Lost election, no, I never lost any election, that was a wonderful election, I never lost", etc..

Yes, and I can imagine him being my guest while he's saying it.

Do you use the Bathtub Test for placement?

During a visit to the mental asylum, I asked the director how do you determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalized. "Well," said the director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."
"Oh, I understand," I said. " A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."
"No," said the director. "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window or over near the heater?"

Talk-radio owner orders conservative hosts to temper election fraud rhetoric

I expect complaints from them about being censored or cancelled.

I expect them to whistle the tune their paycheck signer requested.

They'll be whining. It's what they do. Like repeating the Big Lie of the "stolen election" because they didn't like the outcome. Sometimes I think our soon-to-be ex-president's biggest legacy will be an entire generation of Americans - maybe two generations - that will think they can get anything they want just by throwing temper tantrums of they don't get their way. Assuming the Republic survives, that is...

Speaking of whining, Parler is suing Amazon for "breach of contract" and antitrust violations after Amazon suspended its web service for Parler.

Amazon's position is that it made Parler aware over weeks of its concerns over posts to Parler advocating violence, and suspended its web hosting for violation of its terms of service.

In the filing, Parler describes its service as a "conservative" microblogging alternative to Twitter, and its users as "conservative."

Describing advocates of rebellion or insurrection as "conservative" is first-degree murder of the English language. The criminals responsible should be executed.

Conservative media has done a good job of convincing Republicans that they are the victims. Government is taking away their guns, their churches, their money, their hate speech, etc. Blacks and other minorities are not victims because they get specialized treatment from the government with many of them getting government handouts. One would think that whites are subjected to systemic racism based upon conservative arguments.

It appears that Arizona is trying to become the first state to do the ultimate in voter suppression by throwing out election results if the state legislature doesn't like them.

Might as well dispense with the popular vote for president altogether, and just have the State Legislature choose presidential electors.

State legislatures chose US Senators (Article I, Section 3, paragraph 1, Constitution of the United States) until the Seventeenth Amendment was ratified in 1913.

EDIT: It gets better. The State Representative who introduced the bill, Rep. Shawnna Bolick, is married to state Supreme Court Justice Clint Bolick. The bill, HB 2720, Section 7 (D) would nullify court rules of procedure in election lawsuits, disallowing judges from granting motions to dismiss cases or for summary judgement until after the case has already been tried and gone to verdict.
Quote:
5 D. ANY PARTY TO AN ELECTION CONTEST MAY REQUEST A JURY TRIAL, WHICH
6 SHALL BE GRANTED AND TRIED AS OTHER JURY TRIALS IN A CIVIL ACTION, EXCEPT
7 THAT THE STATUTORY PROVISIONS FOR ELECTION CONTESTS PREVAIL OVER ANY
8 CONFLICTING RULES OF PROCEDURE FOR JURY TRIALS. IN AN ELECTION CONTEST
9 JURY TRIAL, A COURT MAY NOT GRANT A MOTION TO DISMISS OR A MOTION FOR
10 SUMMARY JUDGMENT THAT WOULD RESULT IN DISMISSAL UNTIL AFTER THE JURY HAS
11 ISSUED ITS VERDICT.

This might gain some traction. It might make Arizona's squabble pointless:
