There are a few things that irk me, okay, there are quite a few, but hypocrites in government really takes the cake. As an elected official doing this kind of stuff, I kind of just say it is SOP, but when taxpayer funded employees do it, it really chaps my hide.
How can you say ‘fake news’ when you are the ones spreading it?
I will admit, I was a little taken back when Noem admitted that indeed Biden will be president in her speech yesterday. I thought maybe she saw the light. We of course have known this truth to be self-evident, heck, I knew this all the way back in 2016. Trump lost by 3 million popular votes back then and I knew he would lose by more this time around. He is a two-time loser and has always been a loser. He has never won at anything in his life. He has always lost. How could you possibly imagine he was going to win this time around? It was logistically impossible. I almost encourage the Biden campaign to bring lawsuits in the states he lost in just to prove how wide of a margin it was.
Either way, we get this from our Governor who I think has lost her mind, let’s break it down;
Gov. Kristi Noem (R-S.D.) said today that she â€œexpects the road could be a little bit rough under the Biden administration with some of the policies that they’ve embraced.â€
I agree 100% in her statement, but not because I think Biden is a raging liberal (he is far, far, far from it) it is because Noem parading around the United States campaigning for Trump is going to come back to bite us in the ass in South Dakota. I have a feeling the Biden administration is going to be giving a very cold shoulder to South Dakota. If Noem had any screws left in her head she would congratulate Biden personally and beg for forgiveness. That’s not going to happen, so we will be left in the cold.
â€œWe can expect that they may try to raise taxes, they have said that,â€ Noem said. Noem also said Biden would try and eliminate fossil fuels by passing the Green New Deal.
Yes. Biden has said he would raise taxes, but you have to be in an income bracket that about 90% of South Dakotans or more are not. And I agree, the super rich in this country have gotten away with tax dodging for way to long. As for fossil fuels, it’s just good old fashioned science that tells us we must move away from them, but that is not going to happen overnight. Ironically, the State of South Dakota is in a very good position to go all green. We could easily supply our state with enough green energy to eliminate all fossil fuels with wind, hydro and solar, it just takes the will to do it.
â€œAnd whatever else the administration might do, it would certainly give us a lot more regulation,â€ Noem said.
This is actually something we have needed in SD for a long time, we have some of the worst worker safety laws in the nation. Just look at what happened at Smithfield recently with Covid and the numerous fines filed against them environmentally.
But Noem decided to have her staff play some games with what she actually said and what she sent out after the speech;
Noem’s verbal presentation differs from a copy of her written speech provided to media. Noem replaced the word â€œaâ€ with word â€œtheâ€ twice today when she referred to Biden and an administration twice.
A copy of Noem’s speech refers to â€œFrankly,Â I expect the road could be rough under a Biden administrationâ€ and not â€œthe Biden administrationâ€ as Noem said in her speech. Also, â€œwhatever else a Biden administration might doâ€¦,â€ and not â€œwhatever else the administration might doâ€ as Noem said in her speech.
Pretty slimy. Actually very slimy.
You can’t stand on the street corner every 20 minutes yelling ‘Fake News’ Kristi when you are the creator of this fake news. And your staffers who participated in this sloppy game? Pathetic sycophants that don’t deserve one penny of my tax dollars for their salaries.
But the news gets even better, even though South Dakotans voted for Trump, we somehow hitched our horse to this;
The State of South Dakota believes in free and fair elections.Â Our office has received thousands of calls and emails from concerned citizens and we have listened to our constituents and voters.Â That is why South Dakota has, today, joined the Amicus Brief of the State of Missouri in support ofÂ State of Texas v Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, State of Georgia, State of Michigan, and State of Wisconsin.
What were South Dakotans mad about? HE WON HERE! Our election in South Dakota went pretty smoothly. What are we protesting?
I would also like to see these ‘thousands’ of emails. Give me a break. Never happened. More ‘fake news’ from a ‘fake governor’.
The one thing I have learned about the average voter is that while they may be upset for a few months (or more like a couple of hours) if their candidate lost, they really don’t make much of a fuss and move on. It’s time for us to stop playing word games and filing useless lawsuits (at our expense) and move on.
Trump lost! Twice! And that’s FACTUAL News.
