It’s once again an Australia Time Friday! It’s FRIDAY!!!!
Tonight we just had the T-Bone chops. Roasted in a cast iron skillet for 40 minutes. Side salad and buttered squash.
No wine. Just didn’t feel up to it.
Unfortunately, it is looking like Biden is likely to become president (at least for a month or two before he is swapped out for Kamala).
This is catastrophic for both the USA and Australia. We know Biden is flat out owned by China, and that Kamala loves the Socialist / Communist model (and her husband does legal work for China). Essentially China will become the President of the USA. This means all pressure will come OFF of China, and they will be empowered to do whatever they want in the Indo-Pacific. It is, in effect, a legal coup.
Just could not find it in me to “celebrate” with a bottle of wine under those conditions.
So the Chinese Model of “social credit scores”, blackmail, thuggery, bribery and propaganda will increasingly pervade countries all around the world, with special emphasis on the USA.
Standing against that will be a very thin margin in the Senate, and 1 judge in the Supreme Court (Roberts is a Lefty now. Don’t know who has what on him, or threatened whom, but it’s clear Roberts is NOT part of a “conservative majority”.) So the question is: Is that enough? For the USA, for Australia, for Britain (back to the Obama ‘back of the line’ on a trade deal?). For Israel?
You can bet that Day One a flurry of “Executive Orders” will flood out erasing anything done by Trump. I’d not be surprised to see the Space Force eliminated along with plans to have NASA do anything with the moon or Mars. Similarly, we’ll be back in the Paris Accords (with that $200 BILLION / year of graft gravy and payola payout to the UN to spread around).
There is still a very small chance that Trump can pull it out. But only if the courts find all the “voting irregularities” and declare a fraudulent vote, then fix it. I find that unlikely. First off, with “mail in” any ballot by any one, once out of the envelope they are miscible. By the time the court actually does anything, the fix will be in and complete.
IMHO, the only way to repair the fraud in voting is an election do-over with in-person voting only; and that’s just not going to happen.
What’s worse, is that we now know the DNC is corrupt from top to bottom AND that the Swamp has effective control of almost all media, social networks, etc. We also know that at least a faction of the TLAs (if not all of it) are on board with this. The “organs of power” have been occupied and controlled along with the means of communication.
This is evident from the extraordinary effort to protect the CIA officer Charley Mellow and the complete lack of ANY action on Hunter Biden. Then the 100% anti-trump bias all the time in Social Media and “news” was so blatant even the dead could see it. Now, with an effective vote steal in the bag, they will make sure that can be repeated in perpetuity.
That’s one heck of a wall of corruption, and nobody much is doing anything to fix it. Under Biden (as sock puppet to Harris) it will now go on a rampage to stamp out any possible future resistance. Having been scared witless by Trump, steps will be taken, forcefully, to assure it can never happen again.
I’ll continue to hold onto the slim thread of hope for Trump in the courts until the final verdict is in, but it does not look, at this moment, like there’s anything decent to come. But “we’ll see”.
