Joe Oltmann: The Porta-Potty Rebellion Begins

UPDATE: Were they not so undeserving of pity, we’d almost have some:

Go about your business, folks. The revolution will not begin today.


The word went out before the Thanksgiving holiday that Black Friday 2022 would be the day (you’ve heard this before but for real this time) that the election stealers across this great country finally get some ‘countability. Although Colorado’s Heidi Ganahl lost her race by numbers that not even the most devoted election conspiracy theorist could dispute–and she did consult with them–Colorado’s leading conspiracy theorist podcaster who wants to hang a whole slew of people including Gov. Jared Polis, Joe Oltmann, called for patriots to converge on the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix this morning to demand a new election for defeated GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake:

We don’t know how long these patriots intend to “Occupy” the Arizona Capitol grounds, but the weather in Phoenix is pretty nice this year so there are no worries about them freezing to death in their little encampment. Also, sources on the ground are reporting that patriot potty breaks will not be a problem:

Because while Oltmann can’t seem to draw a crowd, there appear to be a plethora of Porta-Potties.

At this point we think it’s best to let them get it out of their system, with relief that it wasn’t much worse. Kari Lake won’t get a do-over of the election she lost, and the general shrug her allegations of fraud are receiving is a welcome sign that Donald Trump’s election denialism might end with Trump. A whimper of a protest to cap off Kari Lake’s Trump-like strategy of election pre-denial could be interpreted as a sign of American politics working back to the status quo ante.

    Who paid for the myriad porta-potties?

    Probably worth it, if they poop in the porta-potties and not in the halls of the Arizona Capitol or Secretary of State's office. Sh**'s gotten weird!

    Would there be interest in a Get More Smarter spin off pod perhaps a Get More Crazier? Something that focuses on the opposition, the conspiracy theorist, conservative thinkers, and their politics of self destruction.

    Deep dive on furries; where it was invented, and the organization behind pushing it and conservative school board campaigns.

    How gun nuts and gun groups have taken over conservative politics in Colorado from KBB to PPK. 

    Perhaps something Ian can sit out while Jason minds the store at home.

    At least a couple of suits have been filed — one by Keri Lake, one by Abe Hamadeh & RNC — claiming problems in Maricopa County.  2 counties of the state apparently are holding up certification, claiming they want to draw attention to the Maricopa County goofs. 

    According to Democracy Docket, Hamadeh's

    lawsuit begins by stating that the plaintiffs are not “alleging any fraud, manipulation or other intentional wrongdoing that would impugn the outcomes of the November 8, 2022 general election” but then proceeds to cast doubt upon the results of the Arizona midterm elections by citing “systematic” errors. …  [apparently, he wants ] an order declaring Hamadeh “elected to the office of Arizona Attorney General and to issue to Contestant a certificate of election.

    No word yet on a timetable for the court process.  One person thinks it is DOA.

    Tom Ryan, a Valley attorney and critic of Hamadeh’s, said the would-be attorney general’s lawsuit is likely dead on arrival because state law is specific about when legal challenges to election results can be filed. Hamadeh is making his case in court before all of the counties have canvassed their results and the state has certified the election, while Arizona statute says such lawsuits can only be filed after the results have been certified

    Obviously some government official prepared for the fact that these people are full of shit.

    Went looking today … no coverage on on-going presence at the Arizona state Capitol building.  Not even on the Fox TV affiliate. 

    AZCentral (Arizona Republic's site) has 36 PHOTOS at 7:45 p.m. MST Nov. 25, 2022 — but I couldn't find anything since.

    The prize for cultural appropriation goes to Larry G, who is carrying a shofar, (ram’s horn- Jewish religious symbol), while  he speaks to the crowd about Christian domination of the country.

    What’s a good porta-potty rebellion without cousin Jethro showing up with a Confederate flag?

    Kari Lake Supporters Turn on Confederate Flag-Waver During Election Protest

    The Confederate flag-waver, who refused to leave insisting he was "part of the movement," said: "Demographics is destiny–there's a reason the border needs to be closed."

  9. Conserv. Head Banger says:

    Oltmann is a non-conservative crank 

  10. Lloyd42 says:

    If Oltmann is speaking, they should order 200 more port-a-pots.  S**t flows when he's around.  Mountains and mountains.
