‘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.

‘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.

‘Utter Delusion’: Legal Expert Smacks Down GOP Congressman’s Claims of ‘Election Crimes’ in CNN Appearance



A combative U.S. Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) claims CNN is trying to “disenfranchise” voters because they are pointing out that state election officials across the country and judges across the country have found claims of voter fraud to be false. A CNN legal expert calls Higgins’ claims, and those of other members of Congress, “Utter delusion (or deceit).”

“We have a preponderance of evidence that election crimes may have been committed in six of the sovereign states,” Higgins, a former Louisiana National Guard investigator, told CNN anchor Jim Sciutto Tuesday.

Sciutto demanded Higgins provide “one example.” Higgins tried, but Sciutto immediately shot it down, citing a Georgia election official’s detailed debunking of that claim along with numerous other conspiracy theories and false allegations in a Monday press conference.

Higgins went on to say he has “hundreds of pages of evidence,” but Sciutto reminded him that they have been “rejected by Georgia state officials and courts.”

“Evidence is presented in court,” Higgins claimed, ignoring that it already has been, and in all those cases the claims were tossed out.

“CNN is not mentioned in Article III, good sir,” Higgins charged, ignoring that the press is mentioned in the First Amendment.

CNN legal analyst Elie Honig, a former federal and state prosecutor, called Higgins’ claims “Utter delusion (or deceit).”

‘You Don’t Call Dibs’: Trump Mocked for Declaring ‘We Hereby Claim’ Winning Four Critical States He Hasn’t



President Donald Trump appeared to respond to former Vice President Joe Biden’s remarks saying that he believes when the counting is completed “we believe we will be the winners” by declaring he just won four states that have not been called yet.

“We have claimed, for Electoral Vote purposes, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (which won’t allow legal observers) the State of Georgia, and the State of North Carolina, each one of which has a BIG Trump lead.,” Trump tweeted. “Additionally, we hereby claim the State of Michigan if, in fact, there was a large number of secretly dumped ballots as has been widely reported!”

His tweets were so outrageous Twitter immediately slapped labels on them saying “Some votes may still need to be counted.”

Trump in the early hours of Wednesday morning had already declared victory in the election, so it’s unclear if he actually believed that why he would think this latest lie was necessary.

And he was quickly mocked for this evening’s false claims.
