S4 E30 — Green Bay’s Conspiracy-Theories-R-Us from The OC

The “Green Bay Sweep” was intended to implement a strategy laid out by the John Eastman memos for the purpose of overturning the 2020 election results.

“5”  Steve Kerr, 54: “Stories get exaggerated, pictures get altered, facts get tampered with. You’ll get a better sense of things you witness firsthand, but even then, there are obstacles to perfect perception.” Libra

Hi and welcome to Friday’s 30th Episode in Season 4 of  Our Disruptively Resilient Year” on this 22nd day of April in the spring of 2022.

We concluded the three-year examination of how bits of wisdom changed — during the “normal” pre-pandemic year compared to the pandemic year, and more recently to the paradoxically normal year.

If you haven’t been following along, the previous 4 episodes illustrate political turmoil in this Disruptively Resilient Year which add to our summary in S4 E25 and which updated the original in S4 E18.

In December 2020, a month after the November election, Peter Navarro published a report alleging widespread election fraud. In line with Trump’s infamous election night appeals to stop the counting and before that his mantra to Stop the Steal before the election,  The Guardian revealed the report beat the election results to the finish line.

In March 2022, The Guardian reported the original version of the allegations in Navarro‘s report had in fact been prepared by individuals in Navarro’s own White House office beginning two weeks before the 2020 Presidential elections.


The report repeated widely discredited conspiracy theories regarding claims of election fraud and listed various allegations that had been dismissed by the courts, and debunked by Trump’s election security task force.

Navarro cited many biased and unreliable sources of information, such as: 

      • One America News Network, 
      • Newsmax, 
      • Steve Bannon’s podcast “War Room: Pandemic”, 
      • Just the News, and 
      • the National Pulse.

In the report, Navarro suggested impropriety as the reason why large initial leads by Trump evaporated in battleground states as vote tallies continued. 

Just the Blue Shift

But, Wikipedia’s sources accounted for what was really going on.

Navarro was actually describing the well-known phenomenon of the “blue shift“, caused by the fact that mail-in votes in many states cannot be counted on Election Day itself; those votes tend to lean Democratic, so that an Election Night lead by a Republican candidate can turn into a Democratic lead as the later counts come in.

After the 2020 Report, Navarro published a book, “In Trump Time” in 2021, describing how he and Bannon with others planned to delay or overturn Congress’s formal count of the election results. 

In the major scheme former VP Pence rejects some Biden elector slates.

Who Ya Gonna Call?

Days before the January 6th insurrection, in another scheme Navarro,  Rudy Giuliani and Mark Meadows, participated in a call with Georgia election officials on January 2, 2021. 

It’s the now famous one when Trump urged them to overturn the results of the election.

According to Wikipedia, during a January 2, 2021 appearance on Jeanine Pirro’s Fox News program 

Navarro asserted “[t]hey stole this and we can prove it”, and falsely asserted Joe Biden’s inauguration could be postponed to allow for an investigation. 

100 Congressmen on the Wall, If One of Them Happens …

Let’s see what else? There’s the flooding of the zone …

“We spent a lot of time lining up over 100 congressmen, including some senators. It started out perfectly. At 1 p.m., Gosar and Cruz did exactly what was expected of them… My role was to provide the receipts for the 100 congressmen or so who would make their cases… who could rely in part on the body of evidence I’d collected”.

Two days after the violent storming of the Capitol Navarro was making the rounds.

He appeared on Fox Business Network’s Making Money on January 8, telling host  Charles Payne 

 … that Trump was not to blame and specifically saying that Lindsey Graham, Nikki Haley, and Mitt Romney “need to shut up”. Days later, Navarro reiterated false claims that Trump had won the election.— Wikipedia

Even 11 month later he was still at it. With a slight twist.

By December 2021, he was still claiming his falsehoods were meant “to lay the legal predicate for the actions to be taken” despite no evidence of voting fraud being found. — Wikipedia

Finally in February 2022, the House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack subpoenaed Navarro to provide testimony. 

Navarro said he would not comply, citing a claim of executive privilege made by the former president, although only the current president can make such a claim. — Wikipedia

The House took the next step by holding Navarro and Dan Scavino in contempt for their refusals to testify before the House Select Committee on the basis of Executive Privilege claims.


Today’s Holiday Theme: 

Earth Day is different in these urgent times. We’ve moved from a mindset of remembering to take care of Mother Earth to fast-tracking all efforts to preserve the natural world. What were once behavioral afterthoughts are now necessary habits.

“4” Steve Zahn, 51: “The logic you followed before suddenly seems less reliable. You’ll navigate with something different. An innate knowing rises up to move you past other kinds of processing. It’s like the decision is making itself.” Scorpio

Because we worked at the same university and I responded to Dr. Navarro’s request to edit his (then) wife’s resume and talked to his students on breaks in his Executive MBA classes, I had always given him the benefit of the doubt.  But that logic became less reliable and gave way to the slow realization that he wasn’t what he seemed to be.

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

“3”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69; Stephen Colbert, 56: “Being generous feels wonderful but don’t cheat yourself, or feelings turn to shades of loss, sadness, anger and pain. When in doubt, do nothing until you’re sure about what you can afford, emotionally and otherwise.” Taurus 

So this reminds me more about my father who every once and a while would complain about how his purchasing agent customers would want more and more from him than he felt was appropriate for a sales guy for Union Carbide.

“5”  Steve Kerr, 54: “Stories get exaggerated, pictures get altered, facts get tampered with. You’ll get a better sense of things you witness firsthand, but even then, there are obstacles to perfect perception.” Libra

So, yes we all activate filters as shields against what we don’t already believe or feel are distractions to what we need to focus on and concentrate, or we now see repeated over and over and over again like propaganda from sources like InfoWars and Fox News.  Oh, and on Twitter and Facebook, too.  We fall victim to digital cults reinforced by consistent messages in social media.

“3”  Steve Harvey, 62; Stephan Patis, 53;  Stephen Hawking (1943 – 2018): “It’s as though you can feel someone thinking about you and sense the subsequent reach out before it happens. It’s because you are connected at a deep level, working through a joint karma.” Capricorn

So, I haven’t felt you thinking about me, but I appreciate it.

    • “Here, Right Matters: An American Story” by Alexander Vindman. “We’d long been confused by the president’s policy of accommodation and appeasement of Russia, the United States’ most pressing major adversary. Russia’s president Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine, seizing the Crimean Peninsula, attacking its industrial heartland, the Donbass, from the capital, Kyiv. By 2019, little had changed, Russian military and security forces and their proxy separatists continued to occupy the Donbass. The biggest change was to Ukraine’s importance as a bulwark against Russian aggression weeks earlier, the White House had abruptly put a hold on nearly four hundred million dollars.” 
    • David Enrich begins his book with a suicide in “Deutsche Bank Dark Towers: Deutsche Bank, Donald Trump, and an Epic Trail of Destruction” and then meticulously details the bank’s Russian money laundering operations. Deutsche’s Russian business surged after revenues had fallen 50% due to the 2008 financial crisis. Putin’s Russia, poured in to Deutsche from deals it did with VTB Bank, linked to the Kremlin’s intelligence apparatus. Deutsche positioned itself as a crucial cog in “The Laundromat” by doing what couldn’t be done — processing cross-border transactions for banks that were too small  and didn’t have offices outside their home countries.
    • “Unthinkable: Trauma, Truth, and the Trials of American Democracy” by Jamie Raskin recalls one tragedy no parent should endure — the suicide of his son — and then a second tragedy at almost the same time — the insurrection on January 6th 2021, that terrified he and his congressional peers who were tasked by the Constitution to routinely oversee the orderly transfer of power from one former president to the duly elected new President. 
    • “A Warning” by Anonymous (Miles Taylor) written prior to the January 6th Insurrection as an insider’s account documenting how frequently the former President’s behavior and rage without any “guard rails” showed just how far he would go to win the next election at any cost while spinning lies and misinformation on top of each other.  
    • “Peril” by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa provides anecdotes, stories and inside reporting documenting the controversial last days of Donald Trump’s presidency, as well as the presidential transition and early presidency of Joe Biden. 
    • “Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Nationalist Uprising,” by Joshua Green tracks the money behind the scenes leading up to the 2016 presidential election and the growing influence of Steve Bannon’s network of extreme nationalists.
