‘Where Is the Law?’: Internet Trashes Trump as He Feeds Off Anger Over Ivanka’s Illegal Goya Endorsement With One of His Own

Published

on

Outrage was immediate when First Daughter and Senior Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump endorsed Goya Foods in a tweet  late Tuesday night. Government ethics experts says it clearly violated federal law. Worse, it came just days after the CEO of Goya praised President Donald Trump from the Rose Garden at the White House, saying the country is “truly blessed” to have Trump as president.

Moments ago, clearly smelling the widespread outrage, President Donald Trump did a Goya Foods endorsement of his own.

Georgia GOP Protestors Scream “Traitors” and “Death to Tyrants” While Demanding Trump Win Election

Published

on

A video of Republican protestors in Georgia features people screaming “Death to tyrants!”, “Treason!” and “Traitors” while threatening to “finish” any Republican legislators who don’t try to stop President-elect Joe Biden from taking his rightful seat on Inauguration Day.

In the video, the main speaker with a megaphone announces, “Any Republican that allows this to happen is complicit and we will finish you.” He adds, “Any Republicans that are easily bullied into compliance by the left, we will finish you.”

“We will not accept anything less than a Donald Trump victory,” he continues. “We will accept nothing less than Donald Trump for another four years.”

He specifies that he means to “finish” these legislators by rallying Trump supporters to withdraw their support and end their political careers, but the cries of “Death to tyrants!” “Treason!” and “Traitors!” strikes an ominous undertone of potential political violence.

Specifically, protestors name Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp who recently promised to certify Georgia’s vote in Biden’s favor and Republican Utah Senator Mitt Romney who has recognized Biden as the winner of the 2020 election.

The video is evidence of the danger of Trump’s continued, unsubstantiated claims that widespread voter fraud caused him to lose the election.

Not only is Trump stoking political outrage to help anger American conservatives and cast Biden as an illegitimate leader, he is also, as actor Edwrd Norton pointed out, likely trying to create a smokescreen while evading potential civil and criminal charges after leaving the White House.

People Worry That Trump Will Resign and Have Pence Pardon His Federal Crimes Before 2021

Published

on

An opinion columnist at The Hill has predicted that after pardoning people in his inner circle, “Trump will resign from the presidency before his term officially ends, and he will be pardoned by Vice President Pence, when Pence becomes president.”

Columnist Brent Budowsky explains, “A presidential pardon by Pence would not offer protection from cases originating in states, but those cases will be far more manageable if they are not sunk into a morass of federal cases that only a federal pardon can protect him from.”

Without a federal pardon, Budowsky continues, Trump will almost certainly spend his coming years stuck in federal cases that not only threaten his freedom, but also his ability to secure lucrative multibillion-dollar business deals capitalizing off of his presidency and media savvy.

However, Trump would remain on the hook for criminal investigations on the state level.

Georgia Vote Counter Hiding from Death Threats Over Debunked “Ballot Trashing” Video

Published

on

An unnamed election worker working in the State Farm Arena in Fulton County, Georgia has been doxxed, received death threats and gone into hiding after a debunked viral video falsely accused him of throwing away a pro-Trump ballot.

Elections Supervisor Rick Barron said on Friday that the video actually showed the worker disposing of a sheet of instructions and not a ballot.

“Those ballots are 8½ by 19 inches long. At no time did you see him extract anything from the envelope and that crumbled piece of paper, they were instructions and it was a smaller piece of paper,” Barron explained.

“He is having to leave his house and go stay with friends. He’s afraid to drive his car because the information about his car, about his license plate are out there,” Barron continued, adding that the state is considering giving the worker extra protection amid the death threats.

Over the last couple of days, the vote count in Georgia has gone from a solid lead for Republican President Donald Trump to a slight edge by his Democratic opponent Joe Biden.

Trump, his campaign surrogates, and his supporters has all alleged a massive voter fraud operation to help “steal the election” from Trump, though no Trump officials have offered concrete proof of actual fraud.
