Trump, Biden, OJ Simpson. What?

At the risk of sounding crass, insensitive and terse, I’m going to simplify why the Biden presidency is going to happen – whether you like it or not; the Trump campaign is bringing knives into a nuclear war. Here’s what I mean.

Remember the OJ trial? America was riveted. The infamous glove, the Bruno Mali shoes, the blood spatter, the history of domestic violence, and of course – Ron and Nicole’s bodies — slain and left at the scene.

All the signs of murder were pretty self-evident, after ruling out murder suicide. Then, all signs pointed to OJ as the killer. By most people’s estimation from the evidence found at the scene and subsequent sites of investigation, most people believe(d) OJ did it. But do you remember the ruling in that criminal case? ‘Not guilty.’

In a ‘normal’ murder or homicide case, as they say: no body, no crime. In the OJ case, there were both bodies and evidence, but that evidence proved to be merely circumstantial in the eyes of the jury. They couldn’t pin OJ directly to the crime.

Herein lies the case of Trump vs several states in which his campaign legal team allege wrongdoing.

There are numerous inexplicable anomalies, surges in tallies, formal affidavits, eyewitness statements, irregularities, and oddities that the country’s best statisticians and even crime scene investigators can’t explain as to how Joe Biden, the inert candidate, won the 2020 presidential election.

All these things that “seem” like evidence are themselves, not evidence. They are the glove. They are the shoes. They are the motive. But they, themselves – alone or even combined, are not the crime. There is no body, no smoking gun, or no dripping knife. There isn’t even a fingerprint to point to, in this case.

Understand that I am saying this in the most benign manner, totally devoid of emotion over this election. I don’t love Trump, nor do I hate him. I don’t hate Biden, nor do I believe he will bring any substantive change to America.

 

As I write this, there is breaking news that Trump’s administration is now cooperating with the GSA and allowing the formal transition process to move forward, as Michigan election officials vote to certify their election results. I bring this up because as I have said on air in weeks past: Trump will hand over the keys, but he will do it begrudgingly.

The Trump team will continue to challenge the merits of the election results, probably well beyond inauguration day – and they should. I would hope that the FBI and third-party super-sleuths also help investigate the allegations brought by Trump, because where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire. But proving who started the fire will be the hard part. In this case, to quote the late Johnnie Cochran: “If the glove don’t fit, you must acquit.”

Like it or not – President Biden is happening and half the country will continue to question the validity of that result.

  1. Biden won because of mass turnout. The trick will be when people understand that when Biden said “Nothing will fundamentally change” It was completely honest. There will be a few nods to workers. Even table scraps to keep them from understanding the system they are under. Throw in some ID politics to make sure the US and THEM is seen, and to throw on your team jersey in support. Wouldn’t want people to understand the real struggle is against those with power, and not in power.

    I see as my fellow leftwingers cheered trumps banning on Social Media. They fail to understand it will be coming for us in the near future, much as it has in the past, with this awful precedent. We need to be pulling power away from tech giants, not enabling them. Net neutrality is vitally important and personal data should not be a commodity you give up easily.

    Tanks rolled into Syria with the cover of Inauguration Day with not a peep from the big news outlets. Citizens don’t even understand they are an imperial power and completely misunderstand the term American Exceptionalism. It has a very different meaning to outside people across the globe.

    The new administration will continue to work on behalf of the wealthy with a small move to the ‘other’ group that was less influential during the previous 4 years. Policies to distract will be enacted while crimes are committed abroad. A more pleasant face will pretend to calm the waters while the rank and file throw gas on the fire of the culture war. Just more distractions while the machine rends everything in its path.

    My only hope is people don’t go to sleep and start holding the new administrations feet to the fire on policy instead of optics. If it was wrong for them, its wrong for us. If we fought for it before we should be fighting doubly hard for it now.

    The Dems have control of the 3 levers of power, they have no excuse to not do the right things. If they say they are worried about re election it means they don’t care about your priorities, only lining their pockets. Don’t let this opportunity for actual change slip away the same as Obama did in 2009. There are no more excuses. If they don’t listen to the democratic base it will enable an even worse Trump in the future. If they don’t listen start new parties on the left and right. Find common ground and fight for an improvement in the common persons life, not just those that already own all the wealth.
