Weeks after Trump lost, Trump continued to defy reality and claim that he had actually won. Weeks after the election results only about 10% of Republican House members admitted that Biden had won. Many of Trump’s hard-care supporters were still believing him. Some were mobilizing as gangs of armed thugs, threatening domestic terrorism, committing acts of violence, etc. Trump continued provoking them, and huge right-wing media entities were supporting Trump’s coup against electoral truth and the U.S. Constitution.
Decades ago Fox News was created to be the propaganda outlet for the Republican Party, but now even Fox News is not far enough in the extreme right wing to satisfy Trump’s extremists, so Trump and they are supporting more extreme right-wing TV networks, including one that now has exceeded Fox in viewership.

On December 11, 2020, this news came out from Public Citizen (www.citizen.org), the savvy non-profit organization founded by Ralph Nader half a century ago. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (a vigorous Tea Party member who had been indicted for many counts of securities fraud and was recently accused by seven of his own aides of bribery and other abuses of his office) might be seeking a pardon from Trump. Paxton cited the already-debunked myths about voter fraud when he filed an absurd lawsuit in the U.S. Supreme Court demanding that it throw out the election results in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Also, 17 other states’ Republican Attorney Generals signed on to this utterly ridiculous lawsuit to reject democracy. So have 107 Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives.

The Supreme Court promptly — and UNANIMOUSLY — rejected the lawsuit mentioned above, but WITHOUT ANY COMMENT. Two of the most conservative Justices said those states did not have legal “standing” to demand changes in other states’ election results.

Trump filed a huge number of utterly ridiculous lawsuits — WITHOUT ANY CREDIBLE EVIDENCE — and courts kept throwing them out. Finally, Trump appealed to the galactic federation in pursuit of a court victory:
Nevertheless, Trump continued to provoke his cult followers into violence.

Our nation needs a serious discussion about whether we want to continue as a constitutional republic or have gangs of armed thugs use violence to decide who will run the government.
