Members of my extended family are starting to express concern for me. How is it possible, they wonder, that I can still be so darned chipper about Donald Trump’s reelection at this late date? “It’s over!” say lots of people who don’t follow politics as closely as I do. Even some people who are 1,000% convinced that massive fraud took place are hanging their heads and giving up on The Donald. I’m not. Here are just a few reasons why.
“The House Always Wins!”
Some of you recognize this quote from the world of gambling. While it’s not completely true (the house doesn’t “always” win), it is mostly true. Casinos and gambling outfits don’t like to foolishly toss money in a hole. They don’t always win, but they win often enough that they stay in business and get pretty wealthy. What are the betting odds saying about the 2020 presidential election?
For one thing, none of the overseas gambling websites (which are illegal in the US) have paid out their bets on the 2020 election. If Joe Biden was the clear winner, all the gambling websites would have paid out by now – and they haven’t.
I peeked at a European gambling website that allows bets on American politics, which they cutely describe as “exchanges” in order to get around EU gaming laws. As of today, people in Europe can place a bet on when Donald Trump is going to leave office. And guess what? The odds favor President Trump leaving office in January… of 2025, at the end of his second term.
Gee, I wonder what all of the mathematicians, saber metricians, and statisticians employed by the casinos – whose sole purpose is to make money for the casinos – realize about the inevitable election results that the rest of us don’t?
Bill Barr is Out
Lumpy got fired.
Oh, I know, all the press is saying that Bill Barr “resigned,” effective on December 23, but there’s no way that’s true. If Bill Barr was the honorable public servant that everyone claimed he was (which none of us believe any longer), he would stick around until January 20 to help ensure a smooth transition at the Department of Justice.
Lumpy Bill Barr sat around like a lump for two years and worked to help sweep the whole Russian collusion coup under the rug. He never arrested anybody.
Most recently, Lumpy declared that he had not seen “any” fraud in the 2020 election that could have overturned the results.
Now that Lumpy is out on his duff, Trump can appoint an “Acting Attorney General” in the meantime who won’t require Senate confirmation. Do you think that someone with a name like “Acting Attorney General Ric Grenell” is going to sit around and not find any voter fraud – and not arrest anyone for it?
Eff around and find out, Democrats.
Kamala Harris Just Won’t Resign
Senator Barack Obama won the 2008 election on November 4 that year. He resigned from his US Senate seat on November 23, nine days later. When Sen. Bob Dole secured the Republican nomination for President in 1996, he resigned from his Senate seat in June – five months before the election was even to take place.
Kamala Harris is clinging to her US Senate seat in late December as if her whole career depended on it. She doesn’t even have the confidence to try to bluff her way into the vice presidency by resigning.
The Governor of California – Nancy Pelosi’s Nephew – is considering appointing himself to Kamala Harris’s Senate seat in order to avoid a recall over his disastrous handling of the state. But he can’t do it, because Harris won’t give up the seat! For someone who supposedly just “won” an election, Kamala Harris sure doesn’t act like person who is confident that she really won.
I think she’s planning to hang onto her seat until she’s sworn in as a US Senator (again) on January 3rd. And she’ll still be there nervously chewing her fingernails off on January 6th when the Electoral College votes are counted (and very likely disputed). If you really think you won, Kamala, why haven’t you resigned yet?
Those are just a handful of the reasons why I’m still highly confident that Donald Trump will be sworn in for his second term on January 20. And I haven’t even touched on what the military is saying, the forensic audits of the Dominion machines in multiple states, or what Trump’s inner circle is saying as they get ready to take a break for Christmas.
