Kanye dodged a bullet. He would've lost a lot of money buying Parler, if he hadn't first lost a billion dollars through being a dumbshit bigot.

Did Biden repeatedly refuse to return docs, falsely claim to have returned all docs, have his premises raided to retrieve said docs, file multiple frivolous legal claims and make ridiculous public statements about said docs, etc.?

No. It just sucks that this gives the mainstream press the ability to "both sides" this, when they're qualitatively different problems.

It's also frustrating the incredible privilege Biden has had for so long. These are violations that would destroy our lives if we were caught doing the same.

Mike Lindel says count em by hand!

Shasta County's quest to replace Dominion turns 'very dark' | SFGate

SFgate After Shasta County ended its contract with Dominion Voting Systems over election fraud conspiracy theories, there were two options county leaders considered: 1) Enter an agreement with a different electronic voting system certified by the state of California, or 2) Attempt to count all ballots by hand — which would come at a very steep cost and risk falling out of compliance with state law — and apparently hope that My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell pays the legal fees stemming from any possible lawsuits.

Guess which option the five-person board — now led by a conservative supermajority — chose.

Allen sent a letter to supervisors earlier Tuesday warning that a plan for countywide hand-counting would cost $1.6 million and require the hiring of approximately 1,300 new employees. These employees must be hired in a full-time capacity, and cannot be volunteers, per state law.

Shasta County has around 190,000 residents, which is not enough to seriously matter in state/country wide election but just enough to make hand counting a pain in the ass.

SFgateSeveral people in favor of the hand-count pursued by the hard-right board members seemed unusually determined to prove their intelligence, with one resident asking for a "challenge of mental intellect," and another saying to hecklers, "You've been extremely rude and it shows your IQ."

I challenge you to a battle of wits! As usual I will be unarmed.

I know I’m in the bad place when I’m cheering a giant corporation, but Disney just outplayed Desantis and it’s hilarious given this was a blatant attempt to show his authoritarianism by punishing dissent and rewarding cronyism.

CNN DeSantis stacked the board with political allies, including Tampa lawyer Martin Garcia, a prominent GOP donor; Bridget Ziegler, the wife of the new chairman of the Republican Party of Florida; and Peri, a former pastor who once suggested tap water could be making people gay.

After being loyal for so long they were rewarded with a fiefdom, let’s see what they can do with it…
CNN Under the agreement – quietly approved on February 8 as Florida lawmakers met in special session to hand DeSantis control of the Reedy Creek Improvement District – Disney would maintain control over much of its vast footprint in Central Florida for 30 years and, in some cases, the board can’t take significant action without first getting approval from the company.

“This essentially makes Disney the government,” board member Ron Peri said during Wednesday’s meeting, according to video posted by an Orlando television station. “This board loses, for practical purposes, the majority of its ability to do anything beyond maintaining the roads and maintaining basic infrastructure.”

However, it may be a while before the new power structure has control, if Disney gets its way. One agreement signed by the outgoing board – which restricts the new board from using any of Disney’s “fanciful characters” – is valid until “21 years after the death of the last survivor of the descendants of King Charles III, king of England,” according to a copy of the deal included in the February 8 meeting packet.

The dumbshit also issued his "Prove Mike Wrong" challenge, offering to pay $5 million to anyone who could prove he was fulla shit.

A 63-year-old computer forensics expert and Trump voter from Nevada did just that. Predictably, Lindell Management told the guy to go fuck himself when he requested payment.

The contest rules specified binding arbitration as the dispute resolution vehicle, so computerbro demanded arbitration. He won:

Quote:
Zeidman had examined Lindell’s data and concluded that not only did it not prove voter fraud, it also had no connection to the 2020 election. He was the only expert who submitted a claim, arbitration records show.

. . .

In their 23-page decision, the arbitrators said Zeidman proved that Lindell’s material “unequivocally did not reflect November 2020 election data.” They directed Lindell’s firm to pay Zeidman within 30 days.
Pillow Cuck declares, “They made a terribly wrong decision! This will be going to court!” :lol: Good luck with that, Cochise. If you want meaningful judicial review, don't choose arbitration as your dispute resolution vehicle. The grounds on which a court can shoot down an arbitration award are preposterously limited, and don't include "the arbitrators got it wrong."
