Two Realities Diverged [Updated]


This afternoon.


This afternoon.

Via NBC:

More than 48 hours after media outlets projected that Joe Biden had defeated President Donald Trump to win the White House, GSA chief Emily Murphy had yet to sign the letter of “ascertainment” — a previously mostly noncontroversial process since the passage of the Presidential Transition Act of 1963. Signing the paperwork when a new president is elected triggers the release of millions of dollars in transition funding and allows an incoming administration access to current government officials.

With the ascertainment delayed, the Biden transition team has been prevented from meeting with officials heading Operation Warp Speed and other Trump administration coronavirus efforts….

They’re still counting the votes in a handful of the key battleground states in the presidential election – but a look at where the current vote totals stand points to a second straight White House race decided by razor thin margins.

Joe Biden, as of Monday afternoon, had won a record-breaking 75.67 million votes nationally. And President Trump, in defeat, garnered a massive 71.07 million votes.

The margins were tighter in the crucial battleground states that Biden secured to win the Electoral College count.

US Attorney-General William Barr has given prosecutors the green light to investigate allegations of voter fraud but warned they must only be substantial claims.

“Given that voting in our current elections has now concluded, I authorize you to pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of elections in your jurisdictions,” Mr Barr said in a statement.

“Specious, speculative, fanciful or far-fetched claims should not be a basis for initiating federal inquiries.”

Carlo Maria Viganò, Archbishop, former Papal Nuncio to the United States

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano writes:

The world in which we find ourselves living is, to use an expression from the Gospel, “in se divisum” (Mt 12:25). This division, it seems to me, consists of a split between reality and fiction: objective reality on one side, and the fiction of the media on the other.

This certainly applies to the pandemic, which has been used as a tool of social engineering that is instrumental to the Great Reset, but it applies even more to the surreal American political situation, in which the evidence of a colossal electoral fraud is being censored by the media, which now proclaims Joe Biden’s victory as an accomplished fact.

The reality of Covid is blatantly in contrast with what the mainstream media wants us to believe, but this is not enough to dismantle the grotesque castle of falsehoods to which the majority of the population conforms with resignation.

In a similar way, the reality of electoral fraud, of blatant violations of the rules and the systematic falsification of the results contrasts with the narrative given to us by the information giants, who say that Joe Biden is the new President of the United States, period.

And so it must be: there are no alternatives, either to the supposed devastating fury of a seasonal flu that caused the same number of deaths as last year, or to the inevitability of the election of a candidate who is corrupt and subservient to the deep state. In fact, Biden has already promised to restore the lockdown.

Reality no longer matters: it is absolutely irrelevant when it stands between the conceived plan and its realization. Covid and Biden are two holograms, two artificial creations, ready to be adapted time and time again to contingent needs or respectively replaced when necessary with Covid-21 and Kamala Harris. The accusations of irresponsibility thrown at Trump supporters for holding rallies vanish as soon as Biden’s supporters gather in the streets, as has already happened for BLM demonstrations.

What is criminal for some people is permitted for others: without explanations, without logic, without rationality. The mere fact of being on the left, of voting for Biden, of putting on the mask is a pass to do anything, while simply being on the right, voting for Trump or questioning the effectiveness of masks is sufficient reason for condemnation and an execution that does not require any evidence or a trial: they are ipso facto labeled as fascists, sovereignists, populists, deniers – and those labeled with these social stigmas are supposed to simply silently withdraw.

    You’ll forgive me if I refuse to take lessons on the nature of reality from a man who made his living lying to people about his imaginary friend.

    As for the rest, you lost, get over it.

      1. newsjustin

        It is.

        Funny how the ramblings of a retired cleric becomes relevant to Broadsheet’s coverage of the US Presidential Election because they mention “The Great Reset.”

        Although Vigano is relevant today as the report on (ex) Cardinal McCarrick is to be released today. Vigano swears he told Pope Francis about McCarrick’s abusive behaviour and that PF relaxed restrictions placed on him by Pope Benedict.

        1. ian-oh

          I’d imagine he’ll be moved shortly, cannot see Pope Francis being too happy at his overt insertion into US politics.

          1. newsjustin

            He’s retired. Doesn’t have any connection with the Vatican now. His supporters would claim he’s “in hiding” as opponents are out to get him.

    fixed it.

    Trump beat Clinton by less than 80,000 votes in key swing states.

    1. Junkface

      Yep. Everything they say has an opposite point of view published in 2016.
      Follow a narcissistic conman down a rabbit hole, good career choice. Up next, do washing machines really clean our clothes, or have they just been molesting them for years?

  3. max

    Wonder where he stands on children being forcefully removed from their families, or the catholic churches stance on not getting involved on politics….

  4. ACI Question

    The head of the General Services Administration under President Trump looks exactly like what you’d expect The head of the General Services Administration under President Trump to look like.

    1. Johnny

      Walking dead,political hack.
      Two run off races in GA,soon.
      Bring it on,if I was a Trump supporter,I’d boycott these elections…
      It’s a kinda sad attempt to raise badly needed cash and stay relevant.

        1. dav

          I didn’t know .
          What’s a runoff election?
          They’re second elections held if no candidate in the first election receives a majority of the votes. The two candidates with the most votes qualify for the runoff.
          Why did it happen?
          Georgia requires the winner get at least 50% of the vote. In this year’s election, none of Georgia’s candidates got that many votes.

        2. johnny

          the outcome -leaning D-determines who controls the senate.
          one the ‘swing’ states that he’s contesting is GA,he is actively undermining the integrity of its elections.
          a unintended consequence will be MAGA’s losers staying home, sitting out a really close race-it terrifies mainstream/centrist republicans.
          D’s failed to capture any senate seats in states held in states held by Trump-Graham in SC.
          D’s won AZ and got two senate seats,IF they ‘win’ GA they will/should get two senate seats and control the senate…or will they….
          he fades into obscurity,allowing the R to have a serious chance holding the Senate,if they keep this up then less chance..power moves away quickly it doesn’t ebb away slowly.

          1. ACI Question

            The money that’s going to be spent in those run-off races will be beyond gross.

            I don’t really buy the argument that the disingenuous/deceitful/dishonest attacks on their country’s electoral infrastructure by leading Republicans will have the unintended consequence of supressing their own vote in the run-offs but I won’t be crying into my vaccine if they do!

            I think it’s more likely to galvanise their electorate, which is why McConnell is prepared to humour Trump’s wailing and gnashing of teeth. For now.

          2. Johnny

            Two powers house law firms are current representing Trump – Jones Day and King Spalding.
            King Spalding run Atlanta in same way Arthur Cox runs Ireland,closely followed by Jones Day-both big time law firms.
            They are under tremendous pressure from corporate clients to drop these cases.
            Pressure and power is being applied to these law firms-Trump has a nasty habit stiffing counsel,these cases are going nowhere.
            R’s are running two very flawed and weak candidates,MAGA madness fades as the body count increases…

          3. johnny

            “the work is intensifying concerns inside the firm about the propriety and wisdom of working for Mr. Trump, according to lawyers at the firm..
            Doing business with Mr. Trump — with his history of inflammatory rhetoric, meritless lawsuits and refusal to pay what he owes..

            “Some senior lawyers at Jones Day, one of the country’s largest law firms, are worried that it is advancing arguments that lack evidence and may be helping Mr. Trump and his allies undermine the integrity of American elections, according to interviews with nine partners and associates, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to protect their jobs.”

            Jones Day is basically McConnells law firm, its where McGahn came from, returned to.
            King Spalding are very concerned about the reputation risks here too.

            funny that, elections have consequences, one them is no reputable counsel wants work with you….but there’s is always Rudy,it was a tuck FFS.


  5. Nigel

    ‘those labeled with these social stigmas are supposed to simply silently withdraw.’
    ‘Biden’s a hologram.’

    1. ian-oh

      ‘Biden’s a hologram.’

      Yes, Melania is going to present it to Trump for his 75th birthday! It will be Biden saying that he concedes the election over and over and over again.

      Apparently its what all the ‘cool kids’ (well, washed up rappers in their 40’s anyway) give their significant others nowadays.

  6. Kate

    Two realities diverged does indeed happen right under our noses. I remember the late Mary Phelan distraught at Garda leaking her missing sister’s medical records to a toxic reporter …nod, nod , wink, wink, –all to undermine Mary’s assertions that her sister was not “missing” but “murdered” & her criticism of inept Garda.
    Unprofessional, disgusting behaviour from a thick, turnip head Garda who needs a boot up the hole with a hob nailed boot. It’s taken 25 years, Mary and you went to your grave deeply respected for fighting for your little sister.

  7. Daisy Chainsaw

    Irrelevant godbotherer siding with the pussy grabbing, thrice married, adulterous, venal racist against the actual catholic because the pussy grabber in chief pretends to be antichoice.

    After the Four Seasons Total Landscaping debacle and this, I hearby pronounce irony dead.

        1. Daisy Chainsaw

          When it suited him. The whistleblowing looks more like revenge and a power grab than really caring about victims of abuse.

  8. ACI Question

    Viganò’s wiki page makes him sound like someone’s sad shut-in relative who’s spent far too much time on Twitter and Facebook….

    “In October 2020, Viganò wrote another letter to Donald Trump[119] which describes a “Great Reset” and its initial stages. He said that its purposes was dictatorship, the death of liberty, and promises of personal wealth. A Vanity Fair article discussing this letter said “Viganò graduated from flirting with QAnon to what can only be read as endorsing it.”

    He hits all the creepy loser buzzwords in his letters – Deep State! New World Order! Globalism!

    1. E'Matty

      Yeah, except the Great Reset, a New World Order and Globalism are all terms those advocating for this agenda use so not really sure what your problem with their use as descriptions is save for you being conditined by the mainstream media to dismiss and reject offhand anyone using the terms. Do people like you think the Great Reset isn’t real, or that the most powerful financial interests in the world do not have their own agenda? Is it that you do not believe we are leaving the Bretton Woods World Order and moving to a new one?

        1. E'Matty

          right, so you actually don’t have a clue what they are then, yeah? I was right. You’ve been conditioned by the media to reject offhand anyone who uses the terms, despite them actually describing very real things. Can I ask you for your opinion on the Great Reset?

          Here’s some comments from Schwab the Executive Chairman of the WEF. The technologies of the 4IR, rolled out via 5G, pose unprecedented threats to our freedom, as Schwab concedes: “The tools of the fourth industrial revolution enable new forms of surveillance and other means of control that run counter to healthy, open societies.”

          But this does not stop him presenting them in a positive light, as when he declares that “public crime is likely to decrease due to the convergence of sensors, cameras, AI and facial recognition software”.

          He describes with some relish how these technologies “can intrude into the hitherto private space of our minds, reading our thoughts and influencing our behavior”.

          Schwab predicts: “As capabilities in this area improve, the temptation for law enforcement agencies and courts to use techniques to determine the likelihood of criminal activity, assess guilt or even possibly retrieve memories directly from people’s brains will increase. Even crossing a national border might one day involve a detailed brain scan to assess an individual’s security risk”.

          Do you think State powers and Corporations being able to monitor your thoughts, memories, every biological reaction you have etc.. is something that should perhaps be openly debated by society before we just roll it out? Would you perhaps be open to a corporation having the ability to control your mind, emotions and physical reactions if they were to tell you that it would provide you with great savings, efficiencies and convenience? Can I ask what it is you consider to be tyranny or fascism?

          1. Nigel

            Do you think Trump’s legal team will present this comment as proof of widespread voter fraud? Or is it just that their urgency means that any means necessary of overthrowing a legal election result and re-installing Trump can be justified because he’s got a Plan and it should be Trusted?

      1. Nigel

        They’re real, they’re objectionable in many ways, but they’re not the Protocol Of The Elders Of Zion, and treating them as such obscures what they really are.

        1. E'Matty

          @ Nigel – “They’re real, they’re objectionable in many ways” and so why is there no public discussion on them? Indeed, anyone who tries to discuss them is immediately pilloried and dismissed. Why is it that an agenda being progressed by the most powerful financial interests in the world which, by their own admission, will impact on every aspect of life on earth even our thoughts, is not being discussed in depth in our media and openly by our political class? Perhaps you can explain why it is you view these financial interests as being so benign or even benevolent?

          1. Nigel

            Because they’re the subject of seething conspiracy theorising on the internet, which makes rational discussion difficult.

  9. v AKA Frilly Keane

    Wouldn’t it be great if all forms of Religion and Religious rhetoric, spoke and speakers
    were kept out of Political debates, Elections, Referendums and Parliaments

    And were banned from funding political campaigns

    Imagine what Democracy would look and sound like then

    1. Toby

      Imagine if you took the vote off stupid people! Then you’d have something approaching usefulness. This biggest mistake ever made was not means testing the vote. Democracy only works with an informed electorate. Religion is not the problem, ignorance is.

      1. Toby

        Funny, I was just thinking there that its the “tolerant” people who suggest things like this. Irelands secular left are the most tolerant of them all of course.

        1. Nigel

          Funny, I was just thinking that it’s people who forget to change usernames between comments who suggest things like this.

    1. Nigel

      Between implications for Brexit, climate change, the possibility of strong leadership in the global pandemic response, the implcations for democracy and the likellihood of minoritarian rule of the hard right if he gets his way, I’d say he’s not a distraction at all.

      1. Micko

        “ strong leadership”

        To combat something that the WHO already believes has infected one seventh of the global population.

        You’re adorable

        1. Nigel

          An improvement on the recklessness Trump that lead to the deaths of 230,000 Americans, not to mention someone competent in charge of rolling out a vaccine.

          1. Micko

            Tell that to my Indian pal.

            He says his family back home can’t understand the fuss we westerners go on about.

            “We have more people die on the roads every year Mick”

            In his village back home they have a lot more to worry about.
            Covid-19 is a white man disease they say.

            “Maybe if you all weren’t so fat?” he jokes.

  10. Nigel

    That William Barr update is troubling because the DOJ is supposed to stay out of elections, so they’re doing this purely to appease Trump, which is an incredible thing to do. It indicates exactly how far they’ll go and what they are willing to be seen to do to overthrow a legal election that they lost. If the election had been as close as, say, 2016, chances are they would do it, and they’re not even hiding it. Anyone who tells Biden to co-operate with Republicans is a shill. The best thing that can be said about this is that it tips their hand so obviously that there can be no denying their intentions and the urgency of defeating them.

    1. Junkface

      William Barr is so openly corrupt. It pretty amazing really. He has way overstepped his mark, many times. They need new laws on this front. Installing a puppet AG should be much harder to do.

  11. ReproBertie

    That update from Sky Australia was reported by the Irish Times around 7 this morning:

    “President Donald Trump will push ahead on Tuesday with legal challenges to the results of last week’s election after US attorney general William Barr told federal prosecutors to look into any “substantial” allegations of voting irregularities.
    Mr Barr’s directive to prosecutors prompted the top lawyer overseeing voter fraud investigations to resign in protest.
    It came after days of attacks on the integrity of the election by Mr Trump and Republican allies, who have alleged widespread voter fraud, without providing evidence.
    Richard Pilger, who for years has served as director of the Election Crimes Branch, announced in an internal email he was resigning from his post after he read “the new policy and its ramifications.””

    1. johnny

      Pilger did NOT resign,his ‘powers’ were usurped ,he resigned from this area at justice,but today is working at the justice dept.-the IT is rubbish.
      there is nothing there,Barr is facing very serious allegations-of supervising/instructing the doctoring of docs in the Flynn case.

      “What’s the downside of humoring him for this little bit of time? He went golfing this weekend… He’s tweeting about filing some lawsuits; those lawsuits will fail; then he’ll tweet some more about how the election was stolen; then he’ll leave.”

      1. Nigel

        It’s not a great time to be using the US Department Of Justice to fuel his monomania. He’s firing people all over the place and installing lackeys. He’s building a bloody wall around the White House. The GOP are backing him to the hilt. There’s a big MAGA march planned and more rallies. It’s all very unsettling.

        1. Nigel

          No, wait, the scaffolding outside the WH is for the inaugural parade viewing stand. The firings are all probably score-settling. The GOP are just evil. Situation normal.

          1. Charger Salmons

            Trump did pay a porn star to keep quiet over some hanky panky before he became POTUS.
            On the plus side Trump didn’t coerce a impressionable intern into providing oral sex in the Oval Office then throw her to the wolves with the co-operation of his wife when the story came out.
            Then lied about it to the American people.
            Evil alright.

          2. Nigel

            Trump has more charges of sexual assault against him than Boris Johnson has illegitimate children. That we know of.
            Trump and the GOP have lost 666 immigrant children seperated from their families at the border.
            I can, but I’d rather not, imagine the sort of things someone like you would say about Monica Lewinsky.

        2. johnny

          reality bites.
          Between 2000 and 2014 over one billion (1,000,000,000) votes were cast in American elections.
          The number of documented cases of voter fraud-32.

      2. ReproBertie

        What’s the difference between “Pilger announced in an internal email he was resigning from his post”, which the IT reported, and “he resigned from this area at justice”, which you posted? Granted, it looks like the IT are making a bigger deal of it but does it not amount to the same thing?

        1. johnny

          Pilger is a publicity hound who wants history teat him kindly,if he had any qualms or backbone he should have resigned from the dept. not downed tools and sat it out-he’s a coward.
          He did not ‘resign’ …his area of responsibility was reassigned,but fair play IT for bigging up a non event and misinforming readers.

          1. ReproBertie

            Ah right. I was thrown because you also said he had resigned. Thanks for the clarification.

            This post election farce seems to be irresistible to the publicity hounds. (I’m looking at you Rudy.)

          2. johnny

            its not really catching on here its just not-i think people are simply exhausted by trump and want go watch some football or not have think so much about politics.
            this was fort green-my hood-other night-Spike grew up and is a highly regarded in the community,he has kept his production studios here and didn’t move his intellectual property offshore.
            Beside the park there is a shrine to a nypd car burn out during the peaceful protests,made of its ashes it says BLM in black ash-its quite cool.


            ps-sorry about the confusion,his area of responsibility was reassigned,so he made a big deal about resigning from that ‘area”… which had already had been taken off him,we had a few staff like him,all nothsiders:)

  12. ReproBertie

    Just because this farce was already stretching credulity, Eric Trump has today tweeted for Minnesota to get out and vote.

    1. Junkface

      Voting will take place at The Polling place landscaping carpark, by the highway. Followed by a hot dog eating contest.

  13. realPolithicks

    “but a look at where the current vote totals stand points to a second straight White House race decided by razor thin margins.”

    Only in America could the victory of one candidate over another by close to five million votes be called “razor thin”.

      1. realPolithicks

        True, apparently the only way that Democratic candidates win elections is by cheating. The poor republicans can’t catch a break.

  14. Sham Bob

    It’s been a good few years Broadsheet, sad to see you become the Irish branch of the Trump Campaign and, idk, the Ratzinger wing of the Catholic church?

    Good luck.
