Wisconsins Fraudulent Electors: Vos Must Know ... Gableman too?


POLITICS & GOVERNMENT VOTING COMMENTARY We must hold Wisconsin’s fraudulent electors accountable Wisconsin is the epicenter of the struggle to preserve American democracy. Jeffrey Mandell JEFFREY MANDELL JANUARY 6, 2022 7:00 AM Wisconsin Examiner

Weeks earlier, when the Electoral College met in each state, 10 Wisconsinites chose to commit fraud. While the electors chosen by the people met in public and cast Wisconsin’s votes in accordance with the election results, they skulked in the shadows and met in secrecy. These 10 Wisconsinites — including then-Chair of the state Republican Party Andrew Hitt and Wisconsin Elections Commissioner Robert Spindell — met somewhere in the Wisconsin Capitol and signed papers purporting to cast Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes for the losing candidate. In doing so, they broke the law. Wisconsin, like every other state, statutorily pledges to cast its electoral votes for the candidate who wins the popular vote statewide. These fraudulent electors disregarded that fundamental principle of our democracy and of Wisconsin law. They also seem to have violated Wisconsin laws prohibiting forgery, falsely assuming to act as public officers, misconduct in public office, and conspiracy to commit criminal acts, possibly among others. They may well have also violated federal law.

Senator Manchin and the "Two Faced" politician?!

So this is nothing new?   Politicians have always talked out of two sides of their mouth!  Nuanced messages to different constituencies.

I would say it has never been like this because we are in a "new media era" every month.  Senator Joe Manchin simply offers the best illustration of the point.

Consider ... this last week Manchin announced he will not support "Build Back Better".  Where and how  did he make this pronouncement - "Fox News".  STRATEGIC.

He knows his "conservative" or "Trump" supporters will hear this message as they listen only to Fox.  His detractors will be heard only on the "lib" media!

He thus has it both ways!  Later his principal supporters will only remember he was against BBB.  So he can get away with changing his posture with little impact. The "cons" will not be too critical because he has them believing he may switch to their POV.

So he maintains or enhances his leverage with both groups - the "cons" and the "libs" ... what a master at the straddle!

Partnership To Fight #ChronicDisease ... misleading, follow the money to #Pharma #Lobbying - anti #Medicare #Medicaid

 Partnership To Fight Chronic Disease 

Rollcall - Partnership To Fight Chronic Disease ... deep links to Pharma

Posted September 30, 2021 at 8:27am

The nonprofit organization behind a wide-reaching ad campaign against allowing Medicare to negotiate drug prices has deep ties to pharmaceutical lobbyists.

A cable ad campaign has made a patient group called the Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease ubiquitous on television screens in Washington, D.C., and 13 states including Arizona, Colorado and Georgia.

“Thirteen years ago, I noticed a lump on my stomach, and sure enough, they found a cancerous tumor on my liver. I’ve got to take about 22 pills a day,” a man named Bo says in one of the group’s ads. “Take it from someone who knows: Medicare price negotiation isn’t the answer.”

Undisclosed in the heart-wrenching commercials: The Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease has extensive ties to the lobby for major pharmaceutical companies, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, or PhRMA.

For nine years, it shared an address with PhRMA, which advocates for pharmaceutical companies including Pfizer, Amgen and GlaxoSmithKline. Lobbyists for the partnership also lobby for drug companies, and they list PhRMA as a related organization on their required disclosure forms.

Senators Manchin and Sinema: How to Promise to Primary Them in 2024! An Escrow Fund!!!

 I promise to donate more that $100 to such a fund!  It would work sort of like this!

We need other pols involved like - Baldwin, Sanders, Warren, Raskin, Schiff, etc.

We also need some "operatives" involved like Stacy Abrams.

The above types would serve as a governing board to support a candidate that they deem appropriate to  "primary" Manchin and Sinema if their voting record does not improve on social issues such as - votiing rights, choice, climate, pharma reform!

The accrued  campaign dollars could not be spent except for a majority of the board taking a no confidence vote on Sinema and/or Manchin and until after 2023.

The board has to similarly approve the candidates who will primary Manchin and Sinema.

The governing rules need to be fleshed out. 

This is a way make Manchin and Sinema accountable now and it will be taken seriously as the bank account grows.
