I’ll be honest. I’m not used to being right. The old saying is that Even a stopped clock is right twice a day, but according to my ex wife, the clock was twice as good as I was.And so it stunned me today when nobody less than the J6 committee actually came right out and told me I was right all along.

In the days and weeks following the 2020 election results, I repeatedly posited that one of of the reasons for the incredibly skewed results of 2020, where Trump lost by more than 7 million votes, and yet the GOP trimmed almost 30 seats from the Democratic House majority.

To me it was obvious. In 2018, moderate GOP voters took out their frustrations on Trump on downline candidates, since Trump wasn’t on the ballot. And the Democrats picked up 40 seats. But in 2020, Trump was on the ballot, ands GOP voters spanked Trump by either voting for Biden, or leaving the top of the ticket unvoted, while returning down ballot candidates to power.

And the committee confirmed it today. In his testimony, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger two decisive statements. In one, he spoke about how, in one district, there were 28,000 fewer votes for President than there were for the down ballot races. He also noted that in one district, a GOP incumbent logged 330,000 more votes than Trump did in the district. Voter fraud my ass. People just didn’t want to vote for Trump!

Here’s why it matters. This is 2022. And as we speak, the majority of voters in this country don’t like Trump any more than they did in 2018 or 2020. And right now, 58% of Americans think Trump should be prosecuted.  But as we go into the midterms, once again Trump is not going to be on the ballot.

Except he is! Because Trump is now desperate to prove his Alpha Male dominance over the GOP. And as a result, he is sticking his fat, stubby fingers into every nationwide race he can find, to ensure that only the purest Trump spawn appear on the ballot. And that’s the problem.

Because once again, Trump is not on the ballot. But an increasing number of Trump acolytes are going to be on the ballot. And it’s not like Trump has moderated his message or anything. Which means that mainstream and moderate GOP and independent voters have absolutely no reason to think kindly about Trump anointed candidates in November. And that’s before the last 3 J6 committee hearings that will finish stapling Trump to the wall.

If I can be right once, I can be right again. OK, maybe not in this lifetime, but still. Don’t give up on 2022 just yet. Trump and his minions may yet snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Don’t touch that dial.

  1. How I pray that you (self-confessed stopped clock) are right, Mr Murphy, this time around. The GOP has already made huge headway in corrupting the voting mechanism across many states, by installing MAGAts in key positions within the voting system. They’ll try their scheming best to get the Trump-endorsed scum elected. So only a heavy anti-Trumpist turnout will make it hard for the tally to be manipulated, as well as vigilance on the part of whatever honest, oath-honoring and brave election officials remain.

    The majority of voters in this country didn’t like the abolition of slavery or desegregation or the legalization of gay marriage but you guys didn’t care about that. The majority of voters didn’t want to become a minority in their own country through immigration of over 1 million legal and God knows how many illegal immigrants per year. The majority of voters opposed interracial marriage,offshoring American jobs to Mexican and Chinese factories, banning guns, and currently the majority of voters oppose transgender genital mutilation surgeries for kids. The majority of voters wanted the Confederate statues to stay up. The majority of voters think people should have freedom of speech. Whenever the majority of voters oppose anything that YOU want,you just do it anyway,through an executive order or through the courts, and FORCE what you want on the majority of voters.

    The only time the “majority of voters” matters to you is when you can use it as a propaganda point for whatever you’re going to FORCE on the majority of voters irrespective of what they want.

  5. Dixie: Yes the GOP have cast doubt on the election process in every state they control! Where the hell have you been? The only difference between Trump and his “faithful” followers is that he knows it’s a lie but you misguided simpletons think it’s the truth. Did you ever even once hear one stinking claim of stolen election, fake news BS before the Trumpman came along??? Ever? No you didn’t! But now it’s gospel! Abe Lincoln was wrong I guess? He said “It may be true that you can fool all the people some of the time. It may even be true that you can fool some of the people all of the time. But it is not true that you can fool all the people all of the time.” I guess he never counted on how dumbed down his own party could become. You seriously have to start watching the unfolding JAN/6 investigation on CNN. Please, you sound sooooo stupid when you get online and spout this impossible BS! It makes the rest of us hate to try talking sense to you because if you won’t listen to old Honest Abe we might as well save our breath. But the bottom line is this. Just as Donnie wastes the people he steps on while climbing to the top of the GOP shithill you too will have your turn to cry when you find out how he has and will continue to F you over!

  6. To the author: you obviously haven’t been paying much attention to little things like the GOP primaries where Trump-endorsed candidates have been winning handily. Or the overwhelming majority of Americans who look at gas prices and remember how cheap that gas was only two years ago. Or how the US wasn’t wasting billions of dollars in foreign wars because nobody dared challenge Trump on foreign policy – not Russia and not China. Instead, we have a doddering old fool in the White House who can’t even tell what time of day it is – when he isn’t falling down. I didn’t have to like Trump to recognize that EVERYTHING is worse under Biden and the insane Democrats.

  7. I noticed that too. Interesting that the price of gas is commented on when it has nothing to do with the article that people left POTUS blank in 2020. So gas is expensive because of price gouging therefore reinstall a big fat cheating scumbag because I want cheap gas that cannot be achieved at this time no matter who is in office?
