    The head of the Texas Republican Party threw what amounts to a tantrum after the Supreme Court decided to shoot down the effort by the state to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory. Texas GOP chair Allen West issued a statement saying that “perhaps” it’s time for “law-abiding states to bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution.” https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2020/12/texas-gop-chair-allen-west-secession-supreme-court.html

    ‘We defended a selfish clown for nothing’: Milo Yiannopoulos has meltdown on Parler after SCOTUS decision : ‘I am dedicating the rest of my life to the destruction of the Republican Party.’ https://www.dailydot.com/debug/milo-yiannopoulos-parler-meltdown/
    ‘Screenshots of his posts are being widely shared on Twitter, with many mocking the current “mood” on Parler, which promises to be a free-speech haven and is popular among far-right figures who’ve been booted from other more mainstream platforms.’

    President Donald Trump had cut attorney Sidney Powell from his legal team after she launched multiple lawsuits aimed at overturning the 2020 election — all failures — but Trump has now welcomed the conspiracy-minded flamethrower back into the White House to plot out further efforts to extend his presidency.
    Trump and Powell met in the Oval Office Friday night, ABC News has confirmed, and were joined by Trump’s former national security adviser, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who has been publicly prodding Trump to take unprecedented steps to seize a second term — including declaring martial law and ordering the military to oversee new elections in the battleground states that Trump lost.
    “[Trump] could take military capabilities and he could place them in those states and basically rerun an election in each of those states,” Flynn said earlier this week on the conservative news outlet Newsmax. https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/fired-attorney-sidney-powell-back-advising-trump-chart/story?id=74823842

    “After voting technology company Smartmatic sent Fox News a blistering legal threat that accused the network of participating in a “disinformation campaign” against it, the network has started airing a remarkable news package debunking claims its hosts and guests have propagated.
    The package aired for the first time Friday night on Lou Dobbs’ show. Fox News said the same package would air Saturday night on Jeanine Pirro’s program as well as Sunday morning on Maria Bartiromo’s show. All three hosts, who use their platforms to air pro-Trump propaganda, are close with the President.
    The stunning news package featured an interview with voting technology expert Eddie Perez, who poured cold water on a series of conspiracy theories that have been amplified and promoted on the shows of Dobbs, Pirro, and Bartiromo.” https://www.cnn.com/2020/12/19/business/fox-smartmatic-news-package/index.html

    L. Lin Wood, a conservative attorney and staunch Trump ally, seemed to suggest on Friday that Georgia’s Republican Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, who are running in the critical runoff race next month, should be arrested.
    Wood, who has spent the last few weeks spreading debunked allegations of voter fraud, also tweeted out an outlined plan to boycott the state’s Senate runoff race, telling Republicans to “break” the election by refusing to vote.
    “I have received much criticism for demanding that GA fix the 11/3 fraud before we vote in 1/5 runoff,” Wood tweeted on Friday. “In full disclosure, I am not a fan of any of the 4 candidates in Senate runoff. Communists or China compromised in my opinion.”
    This is not the first time Wood, who also represented Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse, has called for a boycott of the runoff election in Georgia, on January 5.
    The Trump ally has spent weeks baselessly accusing Smartmatic and Dominion Voting Systems, two companies that make voting equipment and software, of rigging the election alongside conspiracy-theorist lawyer Sidney Powell. https://news.yahoo.com/pro-trump-lawyer-called-republican-142706761.html

  7. ...civil war, anyone? says:

    “The new session of the Pennsylvania Senate got off to a chaotic start Tuesday, with Republicans refusing to seat a Democratic senator whose election victory has been certified by state officials.
    Amid high emotions and partisan finger-pointing, Republicans also took the rare step of removing the Democratic lieutenant governor, John Fetterman, from presiding over the session. They apparently did so because they did not believe Fetterman was following the rules and recognizing their legislative motions.
    Democrats, in turn, responded by refusing to back Sen. Jake Corman (R., Centre) from assuming the chamber’s top leadership position — an unusual maneuver on what is most often a largely ceremonial and bipartisan vote.” https://www.inquirer.com/politics/pennsylvania/spl/john-fetterman-pennsylvania-senate-removed-republicans-jim-brewster-20210105.html

    “Faces of extremism: the rioters behind the attack on the US Capitol” https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jan/07/capitol-attack-rioters-jake-angeli-richard-barnett

    “On 14 December, Derrick Evans, a Republican, was sworn in as a lawmaker in the West Virginia house of delegates. On Wednesday, Evans reportedly filmed himself and others storming the Capitol, shouting: “We’re in! Keep it moving, baby!” as Trump supporters flooded into the building.
    The video, which Evans posted online, has since been deleted, but USA Today reported that Evans, who was wearing a black helmet, proceeded to enter the Capitol Rotunda. As he did so, Evans shouted: “Derrick Evans is in the Capitol!”, according to the Washington Post.
    Since then, more than 26,000 people have signed a petition demanding Evans be removed from office, while Democratic party leaders in West Virginia said Evans should resign and “be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law”.

  9. ...sharper than a serpent's tooth says:

    “Donald Trump’s belated “concession” to a peaceful and orderly transition of power after the storming of the US Capitol has provoked anger and conspiracy theories among some of his most ardent followers.
    On social media channels and chatrooms like Parler and 4chan, where far-right Trumpists have gravitated as other social media sites have increasingly shut out the president, there were complaints of betrayal.” https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/jan/08/trump-incites-anger-among-acolytes-let-down-by-lack-of-support
    …in the dark corners of 4chan and Parler, where the cult of QAnon holds sway many saw not a Trump concession but either a “deep fake” video concocted by Trump’s enemies, or secret messages that indicated Trump was still on track to deliver on QAnon’s deranged promises.
    The reactions of the more mainstream elements of the Trump-era echo chamber have been more instructive. Sites such as Breitbart and the Daily Caller appear to have swung behind an emerging Republican consensus that has become increasingly hostile to Trump, blaming him not only for the storming of the Capitol, but also for delivering the presidency, the House of Representatives, and, earlier this week, the Senate to the Democrats.
