Arizona may end up being the Gettysburg of the Big Lie front of the cultural war, or at least that is devoutly to be wished. Two days ago Donald Trump told a whopper of a lie about databases being deleted in Maricopa County and several other unsubstantiated facts. If you didn’t read it already, read this piece on Steve Bannon megaphoning the audit silliness. It links to a letter that Trump had cited on his toy blog and that apparently caused the servers to crash.

More on that in a moment. Meanwhile, here is the Maricopa County Recorder’s reaction to the latest madness and it is a deja vu of Brad Raffensperger and all the election officials in Georgia.

Here’s the full screen version.

The thread continues, if you want to check out more of the same. I stopped here because yes, there is a meeting today of the Board of Supervisors and tomorrow is a meeting at the State Capitol to discuss the contents of the letter from the president of the Arizona State Senate which contains the lies that Trump then put on his website.

The website crashed on Saturday because of the letter, curiously enough.

Former President Donald Trump’s “From the Desk of…” blog crashed on Saturday. Users were greeted with an error message, saying “something has gone wrong and this URL cannot be processed at this time.”

The hourlong outage came after Trump posted a message about the ongoing election recount in Maricopa County, Arizona, according to the Gateway Pundit.

The message included unverified statements about election fraud in Arizona, saying “seals were broken on the boxes that hold the votes, ballots are missing, and worse.”  […]

His blog had about 212,0000 engagements during its first week online, notably fewer than some of his most popular tweets.

Earlier this month, Peter Loge, an associate professor at George Washington University, told Insider’s Thomas Colson that “Trump is just shouting into the void.”

The battle is heating up, no question. And by the end of today, certainly by the end of tomorrow after the meeting at the State Capitol, a lot of confrontation will have taken place. As stated, this is Georgia redux.

  1. I am to the point of actually crying. My state, thanks to the Republicans, has become a total joke for the entire country to laugh at. This so-called audit is a fraud and should never have been allowed by the Arizona Legislature. My Legislature and my Governor and the Attorney General are all corrupt and (I don’t know what to call them) . . . Only my Secretary of State is a good Democrat and I can rely on her. I am so upset by this this, as I said, it is making me cry. In 2022’s election, we can get a new governor and part of the Legislature and I hope that they will be Democrats and not these horrible Republicans. We turned light blue in the 2020 elections and I hope that we can continue this trend.

  2. As we’ve seen endlessly from the RWNJ’s, they just say whatever. Whatever they think gets them what they want, no matter how insane, ridiculous, obscene, or how far out there it is. Words just spew from their lyin’ lips with no brain engaged. It’s sickening that many of them are in positions of power and able to get away with this. Putin is keeping the pot stirred with these asshats. He would love nothing more than to see the US descend into civil disturbances or outright civil war. He’s got enough representatives in our government and throughout the militias and other right-wing movements to keep them all revved up and ready for action. That none of them realize how they are being used against their own country is a sorry state of affairs.

  3. I’ve never seen so many crazy-ass people , trump has really messed up our Country. He needs to be placed somewhere to deal with his mental problems , that’s the only thing that can heal us.
