Man who the blue hell knows what to believe anymore. We know Joe Biden will be sworn in on Jan 20th, which is in 3 days. Or do we?
The last few posts on Parlor I read, before that site was removed by its owners, seem to claim very confidently that it will be Trump getting sworn in again. Do they know something we don’t? Hard to say really.
The last post on I read on Twitter claims the My Pillow guy met with Trump this past Friday, advising the President to declare martial law. It seems “big tech” has been suppressing the fact that the Chinese, not the Italians, or the Venezuelans as he originally claimed, altered the election and Trump won by millions. According to Mike Lindell, the My Pillow guy, he knows all of this because it’s all over the internet. Uh… Mike, you mean the internet “Big Tech” is supposedly suppressing?
So will Trump declare martial law or not? Was it the Chinese or the Italians, or the Venezuelans or the god damn Martians? Will the vaccine make you a zombie? Is Bill Gates putting Nano-technology tracking devices into your blood through the vaccine? Who knows. Your guess is as good as ours.
UF/UF 312: Conspiracies to the left of me, Conspiracies to the right of me…
The week has been a year long. It was only 6 days ago that we heard Trump on the phone with Georgia election officials and the GA Secretary of State, trying to force him to rig the election results of that state. And we don’t even cover that on this episode.
That’s how crazy the week has been.
Then we watched in real time, live on TV, the President of the United States call the in-coming President illegitimate, shame his own VP Mike Pence, and then encourage a mob to go to the capitol to “help the weaker Republicans in congress.” Then America’s mayor, (and equally idiotic lawyer), Rudy Giuliani said we need “Trial by Combat”.
The crowd gave Trump and Rudy what they wanted.
Then we watched in horror as an Air Force veteran along with hundreds of others, seduced by ridiculous lies about stolen elections and stupid conspiracy theories about deep state actors, break into our center of government to attack a system that has stood the test of time for over 200 years. She paid for that terrible decision with her life.
That horror was followed by seditionists and traitors wearing MAGA gear, attack and eventually kill Capitol Police Officer and National Guard Staff Sargent Brian Sicknick, reportedly beating him with a fire extinguisher.
All live in real time.
It’s been a week of weeks. And I’m afraid we may not be done.
It’s been a week people. It’s been a week. The fact Tony and I are quarantined and doing the podcast remotely from our respective quarantine bunkers tells you all you need to know about our current situation.
But, dare I say, the show must go on! So it will.
Click and be assured we are currently safe and reasonably healthy.
Editor’s Note: At the time of the taping of this podcast the President had not been taken to the hospital. We at UF/UF The Podcast wish President Trump and more so First Lady Melania a speedy recovery.
Wow that was something alight. Something terrible and embarrassing.
It brought to mind the declaration from King Longshanks in Braveheart when he pondered who to send to negotiate with William Wallace. When the thought of his son came to mind he said this: The mere sight of him would only encourage an enemy to take over the whole country.
My friends that sums up the 1st presidential debate in a nutshell. A petulant man-baby who is President and a doddering old man who wants to be President.
After that title do we really need to say anything else. Episode 300! Who would of thought.
Strangely slow political news week for some reason. The fervor over Trumps’ lies about the pandemic has died down already. Both Trump and Biden did town halls this week to no great excitement. Also Hupp takes us all on a walk down memory lane on this week’s Bully Pulpit. Don’t miss it.
In case you missed it, and I know a lot of you did, two big things happened this past week, and then didn’t happen.
First we have the meteor that most people were hoping just ended it all. Alas, missed us by this much. 2020 rolls on.
Second, the Milwaukee Bucks of the NBA staged a walkout/boycott of their playoff game against the Orlando Magic over the shooting in Kenosha WI. Another huge swing and a miss. All by the NBA players.
This occurred on a Wednesday afternoon. By the time other leagues, MLB, NHL, WNBA, PGA, NFL training camp, knew it was happening it was Wednesday early Thursday. They all decided to join the boycott of their respective sports in some fashion.
By late Thursday the NBA voted and decided to resume their playoff season, leaving all the other leagues in the lurch. Nice work guys.
Thanks for nothing.
