I don't have anything against Bannon, but how is this proof of that?

Yes he apparently doesn't realize how completely transparent he is. We see him but he doesn't see us. To head off the inevitable apologetics from midwit conservatives who will defend him continuously throughout the election cycle by claiming the President of the Senate only performs in a ceremonial role and telling us why we're all wrong:

  • No, the constitution (which trumps any succeeding US code that was put in place) does not have too much to say about disputed elections, but it makes it clear this is entirely in the role of the legislature to decide. We are in somewhat unprecedented times, and the ground was rocky enough that lawyers would be debating whether his actions were correct or not for a long time. It was not a cut and dry case that the VP cannot exercise authority here...

  • We DO have precedent of the VP pocketing the count in the case of dueling slates of electors. And this was back when people who wrote the constitution were still alive. In the 2020 election we DID have opposing electors ready to go - but our cowardly state legislators ignored them and refused to reassemble (or in some cases actually blocking them from entering the state capitols), and passed responsibility up the chain of command. They did this while telling us either the courts or the senate certification would stop the fraud, and pretending to entertain our claims of fraud and conspiracy. This was all plain as day and he could have seen that everyone was setting him up to make the final call.

  • We also had multiple states sue the other states for disenfranchisement over the fraud. These are prelude to Civil War events. People who have been placed in positions of authority - and it isn't necessarily a piece of paper that determines authority - need to recognize when they have the power to fix things. Someone like Pence should know when God is testing him. Imagine you're in a heated battle and your entire platoon gets wiped out. You're under fire, half your squad is dead, and nobody is in charge. Command has pulled out and nobody is answering on the radio. Do you sit there and go "I'm just a grunt, it's not in my role to tell people what to do"? No you step up and lead.

  • All we were asking was for him to be another stop-gap measure to give us a chance to take control and conduct audits locally. Sure, plenty wanted him to "decertify" the votes, but he didn't have to do that. He simply had to announce in his unassuming everyman style: "It may not be my role, and history may judge me harshly, but I've been put here for a reason and I don't think it's to be a rubber stamp. With all the last-minute rule changes, voting day conflict, and other election irregularities we've heard about from our constituents, I just can't in good conscious certify these results today. I'm going to set aside the count and adjourn for the day. Before we reconvene I ask every state assembly in this nation to start an emergency session to audit and verify your election results, make it clear that mail-in-voting followed the laws in your states, recertify your slate of electors, and once again assure the American people that a clean election took place." In failing to act he didn't just passively allow the fraud to go unchallenged, but he actively denied us and our claims.

  • IF his colleagues over in the House felt what he did was unconstitutional, they could have him impeached. So what? He would've been raked over the coals by fake news, but would've been forever adored by the American people and would be a shoe-in for the next presidential candidate. Great risk, great reward. Something a true leader would understand. Maybe nothing would have come from it, but he'd have proven what side he's on.

  • The fact that the establishment media (including neocon news) keeps pushing him only confirms our suspicions that he isn't on our side - he was always a swamp creature. He talks a good game but snakes eventually show their true colors and he revealed himself on that day.

  • MAGA voters implicitly understand all of this. Since he doesn't even seem to know that we know, either he's aware that this is all a game where where everything's made up and the points don't matter, or he's too out of touch with his base to represent us.

You'll also have establishment types repeating the Big Lie that there was no widescale fraud so he did the right thing. We can ignore them entirely.

In short, Fuck Mike Pence. He failed America.

"Revolution" in Belarus was not driven by the west, but was homegrown because of the blatant bullshittery in the last elections.

Eh I'm sure it's a little of both. We poke at problems that already exist to destabilize. We didn't succeed because Lukashenko has dictatorial power and the support of Russia.

He must not be "hiding" very well if we know about it. If we know then the feds certainly know where he is. Good for him though if he's a legitimate patriot.

There actually isn't any "due process" for elections in the US and there wasn't meant to be. Maybe that should change. It was intended to be 100% safeguarded by the legislatures but now it's a web of vague court precedents, inconsistent laws, uniparty rules, and historical arrangements between the three branches that lets politicians pass the football up the chain and ignore results they don't like. "Sorry it's out of my hands, the state assembly needs to act." "This has already been certified, it's up to Congress now." "Well the states have spoken so there's nothing we can do." Meanwhile the Dems and Reps have fancy banquets together to congratulate their colleagues across the aisle on their victories.

And yes when SCOTUS ignored that case they publicly declared the Constitution between the states dead. Never let them pretend that we're the ones who started the war.

The alternative domains will be manually activated if the primary domain is seized.

They will do nothing in the event of "the end of win".

Between 1949 and 1987, the FCC had a rule - that required broadcasters to present controversial issues in an honest and balanced way.

The removal of the rule allowed conservative hosts like Rush Limbaugh to flourish. When it was in place the station would have had to give a lefty the same airtime, making them hesitant to carry his show in the first place.

more Americans operated on the same set of facts, leading political polarization to its lowest point throughout the 1970s

That's a bad thing. That's what big tech, big media, and big government want.

A couple of things I think could fix it would be 1) Ban all money to local law enforcement campaigns from anyone outside the district, and 2) Privatize and pluralize law enforcement. Anybody can bring a criminal case against anybody for a fat bounty, but they would also get a penalty if the charges are shown to be false at trial or appeal. That solves both problems of DA's not pressing charges against criminals, and harassing innocent people with show trials.

You could also make local DA's appointed by the state governor and unelected, but that would backfire terribly when a blue governor gets in.

Which is why I'm always saying we should rig it in the other direction: Big cities don't get a vote. Do something to water down their power since they are corrupt and by nature controlled by group-think. America should be run by the rural counties.

Sounds like a 4chan troll from the other side. Helping Zuck push his brand more isn't going to hurt him. It will just help "Meta" trend.

"The Big Lie" on the other hand is absolutely something we need to keep pushing.

bipartisan investigation

No such thing. There's only one party. This is theater.

I understand and mostly agree with your sentiment but he's factually correct. You're talking about an idealized view where everyone just wants to support the company. In reality people want to make money. It's nice if you can do both.

You fucking hustlers only give a fuck about your own money

Sadly that's just how the market works. Guarantee most of the people here or at WSBets yelling DIAMOND HANDS do the same.

I do have a long-term investment position in DWAC and plan to keep it, but nothing wrong with riding the wave, or trying to maximize your gains as long as you understand the risk. Our tiny bets change nothing.

Great advice, though I'm not seeing any reason to keep holding PHUN. I'll get more DWAC.
