Judge Throws Out GOP Michigan Voter Fraud Lawsuit

Judge Throws Out GOP Michigan Voter Fraud Lawsuit


A judge in Michigan has thrown out a lawsuit trying to block the certification of election results over a lack of evidence.

In his ruling, Kenny took issue with a string of affidavits presented as evidence in the case – similar to those filed in Pennsylvania — in which several poll challengers allege they witnessed numerous activities of fraudulent behavior during the counting process.

“Plaintiffs rely on numerous affidavits from election challengers who paint a picture of sinister fraudulent activities occurring both openly in the TCF Center and under the cloak of darkness,” Kenny writes, noting that those claims were “decidedly contradicted” by an election expert put forth by the defense.”

Trump’s observers did not complete witness training, so their complaints about ballots are being counted are coming from people who don’t know what they are seeing, and they are making partisan complaints based on what they read on Trump’s Twitter account and see on Fox News.

A song for Nepotism Barbie

I’m jamming the U2 channel on SiriusXM doing some yard work

This song came on and it struck me as fitting for Nepotism Barbie

You're a precious stone, you're out on your own
You know everyone in the world, but you feel alone
Daddy won't let you weep, daddy won't let you ache
Daddy gives you as much as you can take

Aha, sha-la. Aha sha-la
Daddy's gonna pay for your crashed car

A little uptight, you're a baby's fist
Butterfly kisses up an' down your wrist
When you see daddy comin', you're lickin' your lips
Nails bitten down to the quick

Aha, sha-la, Aha sha-la
Daddy's gonna pay for your crashed car
Daddy's gonna pay for your crashed car

You've got a head full of traffic, you're a siren's song
You cry for Mama, and Daddy's right along
He gives you the keys to a flamin' car
Daddy's with you wherever you are
Daddy's a comfort, Daddy's your best friend
Daddy'll hold your hand right up to the end

Aha, sha-la, Aha sha-la
Daddy's gonna pay for your crashed car
Daddy's gonna pay for your crashed car

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday's alright

Trump emerges from election gloom to hold rare work meeting

President Donald Trump, who has largely vanished from public view since his election defeat, was to emerge Friday for a White House meeting on the Covid-19 vaccine drive.

For 10 days the Republican has been consumed by his pursuit of a conspiracy theory that Democrat Joe Biden won through massive ballot rigging.

Despite his own intelligence officials' declaration Thursday that the November 3 election was "the most secure in American history," Trump and his right-wing media allies show no sign of giving up their crusade.


Friday's midday (1700 GMT) work session was marked as an "update" on Operation Warp Speed, the government partnership with pharmaceutical companies to create and distribute a vaccine.


Whatever happened to that Russian Covid vaccine???

Russia’s claim of a successful COVID-19 vaccine doesn’t pass the ‘smell test,’ critics say
Another day, another promising COVID-19 vaccine? A Russian institute announced today its vaccine candidate has had remarkable success in an efficacy trial, just 2 days after the widely celebrated news from Pfizer and BioNTech that their vaccine had greater than 90% efficacy. The Russian report, however, is being met with raised eyebrows—and some outright guffaws.

In a press release, the Gamaleya National Center of Epidemiology and Microbiology in Moscow said an interim analysis of a large-scale trial underway in Russia had found 92% efficacy for its “Sputnik V” vaccine. The release quoted the Russian minister of health saying the results demonstrate that Sputnik V “is an efficient solution to stop the spread of coronavirus infection.” Yet it also noted the review covered just 20 total COVID-19 cases in the vaccinated and placebo groups—far too few for the claim be convincing, experts inside and outside of Russia say.

In contrast, they note, Pfizer and BioNTech analyzed 94 cases to make their efficacy claim, and other vaccinemakers plan to wait for at least 50 or more COVID-19 cases to accumulate in a trial to assess a candidate’s worth. “It’s very difficult to explain [the Gamaleya] announcement,” says Svetlana Zavidova, a Moscow-based lawyer who heads Russia’s Association of Clinical Trials Organizations and closely follows COVID-19 vaccine R&D in the country. “I’m afraid they looked at the results of Pfizer and added 2%.”

The claims don’t pass “the smell test,” adds Wayne Koff, who heads the nonprofit Human Vaccines Project, which is attempting to improve the design of future vaccines. (The Gamaleya media contact on the press release did not reply to Science’s request for an interview.)

FWIW, Russia's new cases and new reports of deaths are both at record highs and still rising
