    The MyPillow founder claimed he had data showing Chinese interference and said he’d pay $5 million to anyone who could prove the material was not from the 2020 election. A computer scientist is entitled to the prize, arbitrators ruled.

    Top GOP lawyer decries ease of campus voting in private pitch to RNC
    A presentation by Cleta Mitchell at a donor retreat urged tougher rules that could make it harder for college students to cast ballots

    NASHVILLE — A top Republican legal strategist told a roomful of GOP donors over the weekend that conservatives must band together to limit voting on college campuses, same-day voter registration and automatic mailing of ballots to registered voters, according to a copy of her presentation reviewed by The Washington Post.
    Cleta Mitchell, a longtime GOP lawyer and fundraiser who worked closely with former president Donald Trump to try to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, gave the presentation at a Republican National Committee donor retreat in Nashville on Saturday.
    The presentation — which had more than 50 slides and was labeled “A Level Playing Field for 2024” — offered a window into a strategy that seems designed to reduce voter access and turnout among certain groups, including students and those who vote by mail, both of which tend to skew Democratic.
    Mitchell did not respond to a request for comment, and it is unclear whether she delivered the presentation exactly as it was prepared on her PowerPoint slides. But in addition to the presentation, The Post listened to audio of portions of the presentation obtained by liberal journalist Lauren Windsor in which Mitchell discussed limiting campus and early voting.
    “What are these college campus locations?” she asked, according to the audio. “What is this young people effort that they do? They basically put the polling place next to the student dorm so they just have to roll out of bed, vote, and go back to bed.”
    The GOP has not formally endorsed Mitchell’s plan but has worked closely with her since Trump left office. The presentation made clear that at least some key figures within the party remain intent on tightening rules for voting and elections. The persistence of the message as the 2024 vote approaches comes despite the fact that candidates who emphasized Trump’s stolen election narrative were repudiated in many key statewide races in the 2022 midterms.
    After the presentation, Mitchell was seen at the Four Seasons hotel bar, meeting with donors and Republican strategists.

    I have no doubt that the CHEETO (love typing that) loyalists (33-38% as of now) in the R party are F'ed enough to hold together.  Thus the only chance the party has is to coalesce around another candidate for the nomination is to cull the herd and early with someone who will front up to the CHEETO (Chris Christie...?)
    Based on the Dominion suit settlement, Fox does not want to alienate their audience and thus the audience will not give permission.
    Any suitable alternate candidate on the ballot in 2024 (even POTUS) can beat this clown.  Off a lightly bourbon infused soap-box.
    I loathe CHEETO.
    CHEETO makes Nixon look like a saint.

    Oh no, Fox’s liability insurance premium increased by a few percent….at least Rupert can’t be compelled to testify….and none the Trump hating talking/lying clowns.  Can’t pop that ignorance bubble, it’s lucrative AF.

    on one hand the country is tearing itself apart.  But at least Fox News is keeping its ratings up.

    Two chances, actually:
    1.  Coalescing around a more suitable candidate (as you mentioned) was my initial hope but my favorite (Larry Hogan) was the first to self-eliminate to narrow the field; but I'm not sure the 33-38% would've supported him anyway (he was about governing and compromise, not hatred and kicking down at people who aren't Exactly Like Me).  
    2.  Our biggest chance, at this time, is for Garland and the DoJ to do their f***ing job and arrest/convict traitor, and his supporters in congress, for their sedition.  This is my final hope.
     
    Along with a low-level civil servant, possibly retired, to fill a van with fertilizer and fuel oil and park in front of Faux News during prime-time (hopefully with murdoch on-site).  It would at least delay the oligarch's destruction of democracy.

    The blueprint exists since the democrats basically did what you're suggesting by undermining a Sanders campaign that had some momentum during the previous cycle but everyone knew he would not be able to go the distance against Trump. The candidates quickly dropped out and threw their support behind Biden because they were willing to put the party/country ahead of their own interests. Not sure anyone (or enough) within the GOP are willing to be selfless enough to follow that example.

    Did you really want to post this permanently on the interwebs? Solicitation of mass murder that would include secretary’s, delivery people, and anyone who just happens to drive by? Think about it for a while.

    the tax write-off will compensate the premium increase.....its almost like dominian and fox got together and planned this all out way way ahead of time, shook hands and grinned

    While discussing tucker carlson's firing, the lady hosting The Daily Show this week said, "I can't believe the network so against gender-affirming surgery just cut off their own dyck."
