‘Triggered’ Trump Jr. Scorched for Demanding Republican Party ‘Expel’ Mitt Romney



The son of the President is calling on the Republican National Committee to expel a sitting, duly elected U.S. Senator for abiding by his oath to deliver “impartial justice” by voting to convict and remove Donald Trump from office.

“Mitt Romney is forever bitter that he will never be POTUS,” Donald Trump, Jr. said on Twitter immediately after the Republican Senator of Utah concluded his speech on the Senate floor Wednesday making his announcement.

“He was too weak to beat the Democrats then so he’s joining them now,” Jr. continued, referring to Romney’s failed 2012 presidential bid. “He’s now officially a member of the resistance & should be expelled from the GOP.”

Many are mocking Jr., including using the title of his book attacking liberals, “Triggered,” in their tweets.

Lawyers for Pro-Trump ‘Kraken’ Case Attorneys Tell Judge They Were Too Dumb to Know Better



During the Monday sanctions hearing for Lin Wood and Sidney Powell, their lawyers Julia Haller, Howard Kleinhendler and Donald Campbell attempted to explain why their clients didn’t correct any false information in their Michigan election filings.

Detroit lawyer David Fink accused Powell and Wood of recklessness in making citations in the court document that were easily disproved with a simple google search. Fink said that Powell and Wood alleged that in Detroit there was over 100 percent vote count. Fink said that anyone could search the actual election results and find the corrected percentage on the County Clerk’s website.

A Nov. 6 report from MichiganLive revealed that a software settings error caused one precinct to miscalculate the numbers but it was corrected. Still, that “over 100 percent” claim made it into the court filing and Fink said that those numbers were then used by former President Donald Trump in his attempt “to extort” Georgia Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

“All it took was 30 seconds for me to look on the internet to find the [correct] answer,” said Fink about the claim.

Powell and Wood’s lawyers claimed that those lawyers “are not statisticians,” and that they wrote in the court filing that they were citing a report of over 100 percent voters.

Fink argued that they have due diligence as lawyers in the court to confirm what they put in their filings. Powell and Wood’s lawyer explained that they were correctly citing the “report” that said it was over 100 percent and that they didn’t have the statistical knowledge to know better.

Fink went on to say that everyone seemed to be blaming everyone else in the case, but that they have a duty under the Michigan court rules not to make false statements in court.

Powell and Wood’s lawyers claimed that they could defend their court filing if the court allowed them to have a hearing or a trial and call witnesses cited in the court document.

‘Making Up Numbers Now?’: Grassley Scorched for Saying Moving All-Star Game Out of Atlanta Cost ‘100 Million Jobs’



U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is claiming Major League Baseball‘s decision to move the All-Star Game out of Atlanta will cost the city “100 million jobs.” There are just over 150 million Americans who are currently employed, so the Iowa Republicans Senator is claiming that effectively, two-thirds of working Americans will lose their jobs because of the move, which is false.

Major League Baseball pulled the game out of Atlanta in response to Republican Governor Brian Kemp signing what has been called “one of the most restrictive and dangerous anti-voter bills in the country.”

But the game is moving to Colorado, so there would be no jobs lost.

Senator Grassley is wrong. He might have been listening to an April 5 Fox News report, which claimed pulling out of Atlanta cost the city $100 million, but actual experts disagree, with one saying the amount is “a whole lot closer to zero than the $100m number Atlanta was throwing.”

The Guardian reports “Georgia’s $100m figure surely makes for a juicy cable-news chyron, the consensus among sports economists is these estimates are routinely exaggerated.”

“The rule of thumb that I always tell everyone,” economics professor Victor Matheson told The Guardian, “is just take whatever number the boosters are telling you, move the decimal one place to the left and you’ve probably got a pretty good guess.”

Grassley is getting scorched.

‘The Election of 2020 Is Going Bye-Bye’: Mike Lindell Tells Steve Bannon ‘Trump Will Be Back in Office in August’



MyPillow founder and conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell appeared on former top Trump White House advisor Steve Bannon’s streaming TV show promising he has information that will convince the U.S. Supreme Court to invalidate the 2020 presidential election and return Donald Trump to the Oval Office.

“What I’m talking about Steve is what I’ve been doing since January,” Lindell said on Real America’s Voice. “All the evidence I have – everything is going to go before the Supreme Court and the election of 2020 is going bye-bye.”

“It was an attack by other countries, communism coming in, I don’t know what they’re going to do after they pull it down but –” Lindell rambled.

“Hang on,” Bannon pleaded repeatedly, but Lindell kept going.

“Donald Trump will be back in office in August,” he declared.

Dominion Voting Systems has filed a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit against Lindell.
