    The Arizona ballot recount is really getting ridiculous. There is a conspiracy theory that 40,000 forged ballots were flown in from Asia. Now they're checking the ballots to see if any contain bamboo fibers.

    In the 2020 Presidential election, Joe Biden won Arizona by 10,457 votes and he won Maricopa County – which includes Phoenix, Mesa, Tempe and Scottsdale – by 45,109 votes. Arizona Senate Retrumplicans, who believe Trump's lies about "widespread voter fraud" and a "rigged" and "stolen" election, are having all of Maricopa County's votes recounted, even though the recount will not change anything. The county results were certified by the Board of Supervisors and the statewide results were certified by Retrumplican Governor Doug Ducey. Paul Boyer supported the recount. He's now having second thoughts. Will wonders never cease!

    Arizona GOP Senator now regrets recount: 'It makes us look like idiots'
    “I didn’t think it would be this ridiculous. It’s embarrassing to be a state Senator at this point,” Paul Boyer said of partisan recount.

    Only 12% of the ballots have been checked. The recount may not be finished until July. As you say, it will not change anything. It is a waste of time and money.

    Well, Liz Cheney has been ousted as House Republican Conference chair for daring to speak the truth: Donald Trump lost the 2020 Presidential election. Trump and a huge majority of Retrumplicans continue to insist that Trump won the election but it was "stolen" from him. That is known as "The Big Lie." Today, House Retrumplican minority leader Kevin McCarthy lied about The Big Lie. He said, "I don't think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the Presidential election. I think that is all over with." Yeah, but let's oust Liz Cheney for speaking out against The Big Lie.

    "We must speak the truth," Cheney declared. "Our election was not stolen. And America has not failed. Every one of us who has sworn the oath must act to prevent the unraveling of our democracy. This is not about policy. This is not about partisanship. This is about our duty as Americans. Remaining silent and ignoring the lie emboldens the liar. I will not sit back and watch in silence while others lead our party down a path that abandons the rule of law and joins the former President's crusade to undermine our democracy."

    The GOP just handed Liz Cheney a megaphone

    Democrats are already sending fundraising emails calling the Republican party "the party of lies" for siding with Trump and condemning Cheney for speaking the truth.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki calls it 'disturbing' to see Liz Cheney 'attacked for simply speaking the truth'

    What is more disturbing is that so many millions of Retrumplicans accept Donald Trump's lies as the truth.

    Liz Cheney told NBC's Savannah Guthrie, "You've watched over the course of the last several months the former President get more aggressive, more vocal, pushing the lie” that he won the 2020 Presidential election and it was "stolen" from him. II Thessalonians chapter 2 says the Day of the Lord will not come until there is a "rebellion" and the "man of lawlessness" is revealed. He will "exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God." He will "deceive" people and they will "believe the lie." Gee, that sounds just like that "former President."

    'It's a scary thing': Cheney expresses dismay after House GOP ousts her from leadership.

    Delusional Donald continues to get worse. The men in the white coats need to get him and put him in a padded cell.

    Republican Arizona election official says Trump is 'unhinged'
    The Associated Press, May 16 2021 5:17 AM

    The Republican who now leads the Arizona county elections department targeted by a GOP audit of the 2020 election results is slamming former President Donald Trump and others in his party for their continued falsehoods about how the election was run. Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer on Saturday called a Trump statement accusing the county of deleting an elections database “unhinged” and called on other Republicans to stop the unfounded accusations. “We can’t indulge these insane lies any longer. As a party. As a state. As a country,” Richer tweeted.

    Trump's statement said, in part, that “the entire Database of Maricopa County in Arizona has been DELETED! This is illegal and the Arizona State Senate, who is leading the Forensic Audit, is up in arms.” Richer and the board say that statement is just plain wrong. In recent days, both he and the board have begun aggressively pushing back at what they see as continuing falsehoods from Republicans who question Trump's loss.

    Here is further proof that the Retrumplican party has no room for anyone who refuses to believe "The Big Lie" that Trump won the 2020 Presidential election but the victory was "stolen" from him.

    Georgia's GOP lieutenant governor won't seek reelection amid election backlash
    The Hill, May 17 2021 1:12 PM ET

    Georgia Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan said today he will not seek reelection in 2022, foregoing what was expected to be a bruising primary campaign due to his criticism of former President Trump. Even before his announcement, Duncan appeared unlikely to take up a reelection bid. He has found himself on the receiving end of Trump’s ire after rebuking the former President’s false claims of a rigged election, infuriating many Georgia Republicans who remain loyal to Trump.

    In a statement, Duncan addressed the tension within the GOP, describing the party as being at a crossroads in the wake of Trump’s Presidency. He said he would not seek reelection next year and would instead focus on “healing and rebuilding a Republican Party that is damaged but not destroyed.”

    Two bipartisan audits of Maricopa County's ballots found no problems – but that didn't satisfy Arizona's Retrumplicans, who still refuse to believe Joe Biden won the state in the 2020 Presidential election and are conducting a third audit. The county's Recorder (a Republican) is calling for an end to the audit. The county's Board of Supervisors (four Republicans and a Democrat) is denouncing the audit as a "spectacle that is harming all of us."
