The Official Former President Trump thread

So no different to a hypothetical candidate born in say, Kenya to an African father and an American mother

As long as that candidate releases his long-form birth certificate, eh? Actually, due to changes in the rules about this, it was necessary that Cruz’s parents were married at the time he was born (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_nationality_law#Birth_abroad_to_one_United_States_citizen).

Interesting about Ted "please don't call me Rafael" Cruz not being born in the homeland. Looking forward to telling my son that he could be president some day.

He absolutely won't, of course, because we're not rich, but the idea might give the kid a few minutes' hope before reality kicks the door down and shits on the rug again.

Now, if Ted’s mom hadn’t resided in the U.S. before he was born, or if his parents hadn’t been married, then he wouldn’t qualify...there are various provisos everywhere in the citizenship laws.

Aye, my boy seems to be alright on all that.

I'm willing to take offers for presidential pardons now, if anyone's interested. We'll start the auction at five green dots and go from there.

I'm looking forward to the day Trump is saying his classic lines and doing his dance moves outside Trump Towers but now living on the street, penniless, and ranting 'I used to live here, you know'.

Dominion suing Giuliani for $1.3 billion over his claims about their election machines being rigged.  This should be fun.

Every one of the vote counters should sue him in a joint defamation action.

And the man who he was acting on behalf and under instructions.

Your all right it’s 107 pages of lawyer gobbledegook.

If you’ve read it you can give us a summary.

It’s a great read; you don’t need to read every single word but it’s still great fun.  It shows how arrogant Giuliani is to think that there would not be a pushback to such outlandish and unsubstantiated claims.  Between this and his comments before the storming of the Capital Building I can see him spending a fair amount of time in court.

I hope he has a good lawyer.

I thought she was saying it was a "bonkers" claim and wouldn't win. So she's actually saying it highlights the bonkers behaviour of Giuliani and he's in big trouble, yeah?

I imagine they’ve worked out that Giuliani/Powell have defamed them x amount of times and they estimate that to be worth x amount of reputational damage a shot, so it’ll just be a case of multiplying the 2 figures - let’s say it was 60 times at $21.7m a time to come up with $1.3bn - if the beak sides with them but says they’ve overegged the pudding and it’s 5m a time then that’s still $300m and gives them precedent for moving on to the next suit. This has the potential to be fucking hilarious. 


EDIT - mental arithmetic failed me

I hope they don't consider any settlement unless he publicly admits that he was lying and the election was won fair and square. Be some laugh.

Even just the first dozen pages mate - it's clear rudy has bitten more than he can chew. This is going to be all the boys and all their burds and all their maw's too down Ruel Street level bants. 

Bring a piece.

That is such a slam dunk. If I was Giuliani's lawyer I'd tell him the weather's usually quite nice in Northern Cyprus but if he insisted on staying, I'd try to bamboozle the jury into some doubt over this bit.

Quote

Apart from these red flags indicating he is no expert at all, Ramsland also illustrates
a gross misunderstanding of the machines and software in the details of his report. For example,
he claims that his “forensics team” “perform[ed a] forensic duplication of the Antrim County
Election Management Server running Dominion Democracy Suite 5.5.3-002.” But there is no
Democracy Suite 5.5.3-002. Instead, 5.5.3-002 is the version of the ImageCast Precinct tabulator
(i.e., the actual scanner), not the election management server or software.
 This demonstrates that
Ramsland is incapable of telling the difference between the relevant hardware, software, and
servers involved—or simply did not take care to do so.
66. Ramsland also fails to understand the difference between—or intentionally
distorted—adjudication software (which is an optional component of Dominion’s voting system
suite) and the process of adjudicating a ballot. In fact, Antrim County only purchased (and
therefore only used) certain components of Dominion’s voting system suite; critically, Antrim
County neither purchased nor used—nor possessed the hardware required to use—the adjudication
software. This did not prevent Ramsland from falsely claiming that “allots sent to
adjudication can be altered by administrators,” and that “all adjudication log entries for the 2020
election cycle are missing” and must have been “manually removed.”
67. Finally, Ramsland’s specific claim of a 68% “error rate” evidences a fundamental
misunderstanding of election software. Ramsland claims to have used the tabulation logs as the
source for his supposed “error rate.” But the tabulation logs do not reflect the machine’s tabulation
of votes. They record activities logged by the machine during the tabulation process. So
Ramsland’s claim that “these … tabulation totals were used as the official results” is false (because
they are a recording of machine activity, not votes). Simply put, Ramsland does not understand
what he is looking at.
68. While Ramsland claims that a huge percentage of machine activity reflected in the
tabulation logs were “errors” or “warnings,” he gives no explanation of how he identified or
defined an “error” or “warning.”
69. Ramsland references three settings—“reverse,” “divert,” and “override”—as
examples of these so-called “critical errors” or “warnings.” But these are not “errors.” They are
parameters used in the tabulator to handle ballots that—for example—include write-in candidates
or ballots that contain votes for two candidates for the same office. Calling these “errors” is
analogous to claiming that the low fuel indicator light turning on in a car is an “error”—it is of
course not an error; the car is operating precisely how it is supposed to. Similarly, just because
the tabulator recorded, for example, “divert” does not mean that there was error with the ballot or
the vote; precisely the opposite—it means that the machine operated properly in response to that
ballot. This shows that Ramsland does not understand—or did not take care to distinguish—the
difference between an actual error and proper functioning. 

 Must finally get around to reading the Mueller report next, I don't think anybody did because everyone's minds were already made up.

Dominion are going after Fox next.

I still believe that he will suffer in state court and the convictions will have a huge impact on his business practices.

I'm not a subscriber to the belief that Trump lost his mind at any point - I think he's fully aware when he's lying, and what the consequences will be - but that Dominion complaint really makes it seem that Giuliani has lost his mind and at least believes some of his own bullshit, to the point where he seems to have been running this campaign with minimal input from the Tangerine Terrorist. I don't think $20,000 per day is quite enough to explain these kind of batshit beliefs when you're an already well-off and respected man in your twilight years. He may well genuinely think the reds are under his bed.

I know his tough-guy cleanup of New York was controversial, but he was popular for that even before 9/11, and this has been a remarkable fall from grace.
