‘Nobody’s paying any consideration’: The week that Republicans ignored Trump’s election lies
[ Editor’s Note: This trend is not new, but is gaining steam with the results of the Republican primaries. Quietly behind the scenes Republicans are having to plan for survival in the worst case scenario of a large indictment of Republicans involved in attempting to over throw the government.
A lot of Republican office holders are attorneys and the ones that aren’t have a lot of access to attorneys and you can bet you booties they have all been listening to their own attorney’s advice.
They are closely following how strong the government’s case against the Republican Steal is building, so they can try to save themselves from circling the toilet bowl with Trump to a different archive repository.
Of course they have to do the ‘we love Trump dance’ as politicians biggest love is for the two headed coin where they can’t lose. But you can expect that contingency planning is going on all across the country preparting for a worst case scenario.
I expect the Jan6 public hearing to be devastating, a world wide historic event that will have huge ratings. And what will Trump be doing? He will continue to all it a ‘with hunt’ because he has a limited vocabulary and likes to repeat thing over and over, as he imagines that to be like voting multiple times.
Any chance the Democrats have of saving themselves will have to come from a ground swell of public revulsion from the hearing disclosures where getting the vote out and winning indendent voters over can determine a number of key races.

Donald Trump has been mendacity about voter fraud for thus lengthy that his impugning of one more election appeared virtually inevitable. What was extra revealing was that, for the primary time, Republicans appeared to not be listening.
Mehmet Oz, the Trump-backed Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, didn’t prematurely declare victory final week, as Trump stated he ought to. David McCormick, who’s operating narrowly behind Oz, has not claimed the election is unfair.
“Nobody’s paying any consideration to it,” stated Christopher Nicholas, a longtime Republican guide primarily based in Harrisburg.
But in Pennsylvania, Trump’s earliest effort to graft his 2020 complaints onto poll counting in a midterm main is falling flat. MAGA hard-liners who’ve misplaced primaries in different states in latest weeks haven’t contested the outcomes.
And when the first calendar turns to Georgia on Tuesday, Trump’s election conspiracy campaign is more likely to take one other hit.
“I believe the shine has gone off a bit,” stated Jason Shepherd, a former chair of the Republican Occasion in Georgia’s Cobb County, within the Atlanta suburbs.
