Dakomish, this is good stuff. Norton really nails it here. He's correct.
First, almost everyone, regardless of sides, have been attributing too much credit to Trump or his minions for having a coherent strategy to contest the election. They don't and I'm 100% with Ed that this was a giant stalling tactic to buy Trump time because he really is screwed. His world is collapsing fast. Deutche Bank is calling in its loans shortly. NYS is prepping charges not just against him, but against Rudy too (who is also stalling his date with destiny).
but they were not competent or coordinated. Sure, if lightning struck and for some perverse reason they overturned the results of course they'd love that, but they had no expectation of it. It was a throw chit at the wall strategy and a large part of that was pumping out phony accusations so the base would repeat it and carry that torch past the point the media like Fox moved on which we already see happening. so it worked as a distraction only and any effectiveness as a deflection from having to concede and initiate the transition will likely be ending soon.
In sum, they bought themselves about a month to shred documents and grift some money for their legal expenses. Essentially, they are probably committing a raft of crimes right now to try to escape the karma of their earlier crimes
Ed says what I've been telling y'all. Trump and his family are so on fire they do not have the bandwidth or resources to plot their future either in business, media or politics. They are flailing about to forestall (or escape) their looming bankruptcies and prosecutions. They literally have their hands full with surviving their collapsing house of cards and that's the only true thing on their dance card now. They are screwed. Don't underestimate how much trouble they are in and how much everything now is about reacting to these upcoming troubles pre-emptively.
But they are not highly competent about much so I don't expect any of them to escape their fate unless they disappear and have plastic surgery.
a cornered animal is a dangerous animal. don't underestimate how far they will go to survive. the latest plan is simply asking republicans to ignore the vote and just give him the election. that's really what the plan is. let's see how many play along. several rats are starting to leave the sinking ship
That meeting at the WH has backfired enormously. Google it. Again, the plan is BS with zero chance of success, so sure call it a plan if you want, it's just not a plan for successfully overturning the election results
