Joe Biden: I have won a mandate to fight climate change and systemic racism
“They’ve given us a mandate for action”
Democrats are beyond shameless. Before the results are even in Nancy Pelosi was screeching at the warring factions of her own caucus that “we have a mandate!”, and on Friday, Joe Biden declared that he has a mandate to “act” on a leftist agenda he largely hid from American voters.
Remember, Biden didn’t run on a leftist agenda, and when he did mention it—his promise to eliminate fossil fuels, his team scrambled to walk it back. He flat out denied that he supports the Green New Deal, despite it featuring prominently on his campaign website as “build back better.” So we can safely knock those two issues off his imaginary mandate.
Otherwise, he barely campaigned at all, and when he did, he avoided policy and ran instead as a “decent,” no malarkey, foot–perpetually–in–mouth incompetent and slightly racist goofball.
Watch (and try not to laugh—or scream—at the first part when he claims, without evidence, that “the tallies aren’t just numbers, they represent votes and voters”):

If you are interested, you can watch the whole thing here.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The results may not be finalized, but 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is preparing to govern.
“We don’t have a declaration of victory yet,” the former vice president said Friday in Wilmington, Delaware. “But the numbers tell us a clear and convincing story: We’re going to win this race.”
Biden cited his 4 million-plus popular vote advantage on President Trump and his leads on the incumbent in Arizona and Georgia, the first time a Democrat has performed well in those states in more than two decades. Biden, a 36-year Delaware senator, also talked up how he had “rebuilt the blue wall in the middle of the country that crumbled just four years ago,” referring to wins in Michigan and Wisconsin, and his vote lead in the ongoing Pennsylvania count.
“They’ve given us a mandate for action,” Biden said. “People spoke.”
Biden added his top priorities were responding to the coronavirus pandemic, the economy, climate change, and systemic racism.
“I want people to know that we’re not waiting to get the work done,” he said.
While Pelosi was out Friday again touting Biden’s and the Democrats’ imaginary mandate, Republicans are pushing back.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Friday that a disappointing cycle for House Democrats should do nothing to hinder the party’s ambitious legislative agenda, pointing to voters’ historic support for Joe Biden — who appears on the cusp of the winning the White House — in claiming that Democrats will have greater leverage next year.
“President-elect Biden has a strong mandate to lead, and he’ll have a strong Democratic House with him,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol, predicting a Biden victory.
. . . . But she also rejected the notion that the election results would force Democrats to accept a smaller package, leaning again on Biden’s vote tally, which is approaching 74 million.
That is more votes than any candidate ever won in a presidential election, though the former vice president seems likely at best to equal Trump’s 2016 haul in the Electoral College.
“That isn’t anything that we should even be looking at,” Pelosi said of a slimmer bill. “I think Joe Biden has a big mandate — a bigger mandate than John F. Kennedy.”
. . . . Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), the majority leader, suggested Friday that October’s employment numbers mean that Congress should enact a smaller coronavirus relief package than the Trump administration had previously backed. And Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) said the election results indicate Pelosi will have to “give some ground” in those talks.
“Sure she does,” Blunt said, when asked if Pelosi will have to drop some of her demands in the emergency relief package. “And the vast majority of her members also think she has to give some ground here. The liberal agenda was rejected by voters.
“There was no mandate in this election.”
Blunt is correct, there is no Democrat mandate in this election. The long-predicted “blue wave” did not manifest; instead, Republicans, ‘buoyed’ by President Trump, gained House seats and have, so far, kept the Senate. Republicans made impressive gains at the state level, as well, so Democrats will have no more influence over redistricting in 2021 than they had before the election.
The Wall Street Journal has more on “Joe Biden’s non-mandate”:
There was no blue wave, and certainly no mandate for progressive change. If anything, the fevered Democratic and media anticipation of a “transformational” election drove more voters to turn out to stop it. When Mr. Trump finally focused on the economy and progressive agenda in the last weeks of the campaign, his support rose and lifted Republicans in some places as well.
Meanwhile, Mr. Biden’s campaign platform boiled down to he’s not Donald Trump, he’ll do a better job fighting Covid-19, and he won’t take away your health care. His TV ads were largely biographical, contrasting his character to Mr. Trump’s.
Mr. Biden barely mentioned the agenda his aides developed with Bernie Sanders, and the press barely asked him about it. When the former Vice President did finally admit in the last debate that he wanted to “transition” the economy from fossil fuels, his campaign had him scramble to explain it away.
Mr. Biden does have a mandate to defeat Covid-19, rolling out the vaccines already in the pipeline and setting an example by wearing his mask. He has a mandate not to tweet, not to call the press “the enemy of the people,” and not to make himself the center of attention all the time. He also has a mandate to work across the aisle with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
. . . . Instead, in their considerable wisdom, the voters may have elected Mr. Biden but they left his party and its radical ideas behind.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
The goal of the Democrat Party is to not win elections but functionally eliminate them by changing the landscape to prevent any other party from challenging them. Next, they will constrain the internal challenges to the Party line. The Mexican Pri, Russia’s and China’s communist parties and those of lesser communist dictatorships come to mind.
Instead, in their considerable wisdom, the voters may have elected Mr. Biden but they left his party and its radical ideas behind.” NOT!
All hail Ceasar and Present Defect Biden.

Trump Campaign Releases Statement After Fake News
Declares Senile Joe the Winner — THE FIGHT GOES ON
Not ready enough, apparently.
Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media’
The New Mexico speaker of the house, Brian Egolf, announced after a republican defeated Xochitl Torres Small that the legislature would redraw her district to prevent republican wins in the future. I just love it when they announce to the world, they’re unethical scumbags.
Gerrymandering is perfectly legal – except when Republicans do it.
Being right is not going to win the day. Trump is leading a brain-dead GOP that is already conceding to the Dems. Again. They need to step up and DEMAND that they be added to AOC’s “Trump Accountability Project” list.
The only Republican so far to step up and do so is Sen. Marsha Blackburn. Hell, she’s the only one to even denounce it.
Where is everybody? Where is the outrage? We will ALL be on that list!
Again, you are asking for Republicans to be a profile in courage….it ain’t happening
Jeb Bush just congratulated “President” Biden. There is not Republican party, just a corrupt Uniparty vs Trump.
Remember that photo of GW Jr. almost giving Hilary a deep throat French Kiss………
You’ve won nothing yet, dipsh1t.
I wondered why the Biden/Harris campaign was so indifferent, so lackluster and hostile to potential voters. Either they know they have no chance of winning and are just going through the motions, or, they’re supremely confident that the “fix is in” and what they do – what Trump does – doesn’t matter. The fraud will put them over the top.
And now we know.
When this is audited, investigated, I hope it’s prosecuted to the fullest extent of Federal law, and everyone involved is jailed for conspiracy, including Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Obama, every state official, etc.
There’s a comment Pelosi made that I can’t find any more – but remember fairly well – something she made in passing/haste – basically: “Oh, Trump is on the way out / leaving, he just doesn’t know it yet”. The bag was in on it – and needs to be gutted like a fish.
Well dang! Found it!
Put no trust in the words of Satan……..
“There was no blue wave, and certainly no mandate for progressive change. If anything, the fevered Democratic and media anticipation of a “transformational” election drove more voters to turn out to stop it.”
A truly bizarre statement, considering it comes from the ultra-woke WSJ. You worked to put the Communists in power, now enjoy the strange fruits of your sleazy NeverTrump campaign.
People driving around honking their horns in celebration in this downtown city…. I think their celebrations may be premature.
Don’t give up the ship!
You didnt even win the election.
We just lost an opportunity to clean out an entrenched, corrupt professional political class.
A mandate? In a contested election? I think not.
‘Mandate.’ When the election is Tuesday, yet by Friday there’s still no decisive winner, plus a slew of legal challenges so the vote is not yet certified, AND your party got shellacked down-ballot – ‘mandate’ doesn’t mean what you think it means, Gramps.
Go sniff some Kamala hair. We got this.
True Psychopaths like all those Democrat Pol always LIE about EVERYTHING!
the Republicans did it to themselves in not contesting this mail-in ballot BS before Nov.3
alot of people were signalling way beforehand – umm… so how do we verify these things in a contested election
and that is where the Trump ligation team is going to end up losing – they can’t verify any of these mail-in ballots, fraudulent or not
sadly, this election is over and Trump will have to eventually concede to the Biden Presidency but those on the right need to get pissed as to engage in active lawsuits to make sure the fraud we saw in 2020 never happens again
Trump can still run for another term in 2024, though I doubt he will due to his age being a factor there
but in the next 2-3 years, various local and state groups need to be bringing cases in each state without Voter ID laws so we can try to get validation for any future ballots
it only takes 1 case to make it the Supremes to get the system changed to a better and more reliably consistent method of counting and verification
THIS needs to be litigated in the courts from the ground up
problem is many Republicans don’t seem to be too bothered by all the Dem cheating and/or are dumb enough not to see it happen before their eyes
I mean you just had in NC a duo of Republicans resign over the backlash of them getting tricked into allowing fraudulent ballots casted to be ‘corrected’
You seem to be under some weird delusion that we still live in a constitutional representative republic
Do they need to challenge the ballots? Ballots were being “counted” overnight, during a time when polling officials announced publicly that counting was to be shut down until the next morning. Since the official ballot counters were supposed to be home asleep, who the heck did the counting? Lastly, the counting was done with no poll watchers present. A sane judiciary would reason that any votes “counted” during that time were fraudulent and throw them out. That wins Trump MI, WI, and PA. I think GA too.
Trump should go on TV and say it’s not over, but if it is he will go on to form the Populist party. Watch all the Republican standing on the sideline suddenly piss them selves to go fight for Trump.
I would prefer “Patriot Party”!
There will be no viable third party; we either do what the socialists have done and take over the GOP, as was (briefly) started by the Tea Party, or we abandon our country to the socialists. Everyone–on both sides–seems to think that what they believe is believed by the majority of the country, that is incorrect.
The truth is that there are about 25% who are on board with socialist Democrats (progressives) and about 25% who are Constitutional conservatives. We, my friends, are the fringe right, in other words. Until we get that, there is no way to gain any ground.
Spitting about a third party that people imagine will win some kind of majority support is . . . just spitting. Into the wind. It won’t happen. The left tried that with the Green Party and whatever other incarnations of crap they have tried, but they all failed. We have a two-party system, and we either work within it (again, as the socialists are successfully doing on the left WITHIN the Democrat Party), or we don’t and fail.
Taking your toys and stomping off home because there are Republicans who aren’t as conservative/America First/whatever as you is fine, do it. But then realize that your failure to stay the course is a problem not just for the GOP and all its RINO’s but for our very country because your stomping off in a fit of (understandable) self-righteous pique is exactly what the socialists want and need to happen.
Stay and fight to reshape the GOP or stomp off to some marginal third party that gets at or less than 3% of the vote. Your choice, of course, but know what you’re doing and know, too, that there will be no “hot” “civil war” for you to fight. The war is cold and will stay that way. Period. Let me iterate: we are a fringe minority, fringe minorities don’t fare well on their own, so clear your heads.
The problem isn’t systemic racism. The problem is systemic liberalism.
‘The problem isn’t systemic racism. The problem is systemic
The Left idolizes mass murderers, dictators and tyrants. They love revolution and breaking things to get their way. It is a “romantic” vision for them as they purge the world of wrongs done to them. It allows them to hate and strike out and have value. Land, peace, bread…workers of the world revolt, all that you can lose are your chains.
Destroying America will avenge all of the wrongdoing. They will create a better world at the cost of all the good things they have been given but detest. It was given to them too freely and thus has no value. They deserve all the suffering they will create…. we don’t.
My advice to the Biden team would be to stay quiet about how they intend to govern.
They were smart to disguise their agenda and and assisted by the MSM in keeping their policy preferences disguised. Coming clean before the votes are certified is an error.
Just imagine if and this is unlikely but if a state had to be re-voted as one of the NJ races was then spilling the beans may scare off voters.
It will definitely have that effect in GA Senate races in January and the LA house seat that be a run off.
They’ll try to overreach. They always do. The question is how far Republicans will let them. If the GOP were a normal party and it ends up controlling the Senate, it will do to Biden what Ds did to Trump.
They’ll immediately begin investigations into the Biden family; subpoena everybody who has ever known Biden to force them to deplete all their resources on law fees; and they’d “resist” everything Biden tries to accomplish.
But the GOP is not a normal party that represents the interests of its voters the way Democrats do. Lindsey Graham has already said he wants to work with Ds on lots of issues, including infrastrucutre (another big payout of liberal constituents) and transitioning to a clean energy economy (more double talk for using mandates and subsidies to force us to use uneconomic alternative energy for the purpose of enriching the alternative energy companies that own the Democrat party.)
When Republicans win, Democrats throw a non-stop four year hissy fit. When Democrats win, the Republicans seek to negotiate with them. Always.
without Trump at the helm, a 52-48 Senate is really a 50-50 Senate because 1 or 2 of the squishes will fold to get whatever Dem legislation passed
heck with Trump at the helm, he signed the very relief bill that cost him the election (that was how that mail-in crap got funded statewide)
in short – the Republicans are a party without political courage
I mean, has anyone even seen Barr in the last 4 weeks?
they talk a good game, but when it goes to actually governing by the will of their base, they always slow roll their efforts and never get anything meaningful done
Trump was the only republican in the last 30 years that had the balls to challenge the establishment’s status quo
but even he continued the same failed policies of overspending and not slashing budgets
conservatives may have some ‘firebrands’ in Cruz and Rand Paul, but they are the minority of the Republican brand
the rest of them go with the DC flow
It isn’t called the stupid party without good reason is it?
They’ll be calling it the Orange Party as soon as the Marxists get themselves planted in DC.
Remember when Graham said he hoped to G-d that they would never get into power. Now he is handing them perpetual political control with immigration. There is just so much a country can absorb before it collapses. There are few second chances.
It is now being reported that the Michigan computer “glitch” used a fractional method to over count Biden ballots. This comes from a review of the MI results. So, for example, every GOP vote is tallied as 87/100 and every Democrat vote is tallied 113/100.
Sounds more like a ‘feature’ than a ‘bug’.
It is not a glitch of course. It is an intentional software program eerily similar to the CIA software program “Scorecard”.
And that company is said to be owned by Senator Dianne Feinstein’s husband!
And the vote was still so overwhelmingly Republican that they had to stop and fill out a few hundred thousand additional ballots.
So China Flu and the BLM Riots are all over now?
With this, groups promising “direct action” temporarily lost their rationale for violence. If Trump pulls it out when the Electoral College meets in December, the weather might be too cold for rioting. I’ve never seen people riot in a blizzard.
Let’s see if there are any patriots left in Government. There will be investigations before Vote certification. There will be selection of electors. Much can happen before Biden takes office.
Most likely his death by DEMS –
Et tu Kameltoes
Don’t bet your paycheck on anything changing…… the Repubs will magically transform back into their go-along, get-along mindset.
Mailman, is that you?
How fucking dare you! I’m much more eloquent than that fuck! ???
But I do take my hat off to Paul’s well thought out argument ?
Joe’s mandate is to call a lid at 9am and stay in his basement.
Bad news for Joe: His basement has just told him to GTFO and get a life.
If only someone would put a lid on his basement while he’s in it.
I so hear you, Paul! This infuriated me, too. We all know that the “people’s votes” that pushed him over the line were not legit. Where he did legit win the popular vote doesn’t matter because that’s limited to America’s biggest cities. He makes me sick to my stomach.
Give a Democrat a %50.00009 majority and it’s a mandate to rule with a iron glove over the %49.99991
And in no way is this city only vote legitimate. 5 major cities in 5 states stole this election.
What a dunce. Cheating Joe is going to tackle two of the biggest non-problems in the country. I hear the White House basement is calling him. It needs a friend badly.
A mandate ?
Okay, LI readers in Georgia — you have your challenge. We have two Senate run-offs in a month. At least one, and preferably both, have to go to the Pubs (lamentable as the party is right now) to stop Senile Joe’s ‘mandate’.
And now you know just how far the Dems will go in metro Atlanta and Savannah to steal an election.
You need to stop the Dems. A 51-50 Senate and a 220-215 House will be used by the socialists to ram everything through. Kamala will show Joe where to sign, and he will.
So now it’s on you.
What, exactly , is it that you propose?
I get your point here, Steve, but the simple fact is that the fix is in in Georgia. No way does Obama lose Georgia TWICE, McCain won it, then the Mittens won it, and then Trump won it, and now, magically, Georgia is all-in for freaking dementia Gropey Joe? I don’t buy that for one second.
Which means, the fix is in. The Senate will go to the Dems in January, and there is clearly no margin of error they are not willing to overcome by cheating. The media sure isn’t going to call them out; they WANT a Dem sweep of the House, Senate, and WH.
I didn’t realize you were of French ancestry; a cheese eating surrender monkey.
If you don’t want to fight in GA well …ok then. Do the rest of us have your permission to do so?
The next few weeks will expose a good deal of corruption in the balloting of several states. Maybe enough to convince a court to intervene maybe not.
There will be enough to begin investigations as the Wisconsin legislature is commencing.
This will be a knife fight going forward. If you are unwilling to be cut or stabbed don’t participate. At the same time if you are unwilling to engage in the necessary tactics to win by making your opponents quit, please don’t criticize those of us willing to do so.
We have entered a phase politically in which we repudiate the Chicago way style of politics or we will be forced to embrace them.
Of course, Commo Chief, go ahead and tilt at windmills in a state that went for President Trump by large margins but magically ended up in Biden’s win column. Who am I to disabuse of the notion that voter fraud only applies to Trump? Of course it would never ever apply to the Senate, too. Silly me.
Just one teensy thought: if you want to fight the Chicago way in Georgia, you don’t to it by shooting the messenger . . . or by pretending your vote actually matters in Chicago (or Georgia).
You seem to be declaring defeat in GA:
1. Prior to the completion of current vote tally.
2. Prior to any effort of a re canvass of the original and currently incomplete tally.
3. Nearly 60 days in advance of the runoff for the two Senate seats.
You have stated that in effect the fix is in for GA and ‘votes won’t count’ in GA. That sounds like you are arguing that any and all efforts to fight the obvious irregularity in GA are doomed to fail.
Further you seem to be declaring that no one should engage in what you deem a quixotic effort to fight. So in sum you have not only given up you are encouraging everyone else to give up as well.
If you want to roll over and quit fighting back before the vote counts are complete and two pivotal Senate races are even held in January that’s ok. Just don’t try and convince me not to keep fighting.
If I misunderstood your comment please correct me.
No, you didn’t misunderstand my comment. I am very worried that the vile, obvious, in-your-face voter and election fraud that took place to remove President Trump from office will be recreated in January to win control of the Senate for Democrats. I think that’s far more probable than not given the Republican Party’s response to voter fraud and stolen elections. They roll over every time; Trump is the only one who hasn’t.
I remember learning that Sharon Angle had lost to Harry Reid and being pretty darned gob-smacked. She had momentum and yuge Republican voter support in Nevada (we know this because the Democrat media attacked her on a daily basis), and I was sure she was going to win. But nope. Then in 2012, Romney had that won, but when he chose not to contest the results from the fraud, I just shrugged. If he didn’t care enough to fight, why should I?
And now we have Romney saying that Trump should concede for the integrity of our elections and for America. What a whiny little snake he is (and has always been). He thinks that America is upheld by lying to the American people about the integrity of our elections, that rolling over and “taking one for the team” is the decent thing to do. He doesn’t get that he is the problem.
So no, I don’t want to roll over, but I also know that these GOP candidates, if robbed, will just concede and make happy noises. They won’t fight the fraud as Trump is. So, yeah, I’m pessimistic about keeping the Senate in January, but being pessimistic doesn’t mean I don’t think we should fight, that we should try. As we’ve always said, the Republican has to win in a landslide that eclipses Democrat fraud (and Trump was on his way to doing just that on Nov 3, then the counting stopped, and miraculous Biden ballots–and only Biden ballots, no downticket votes–appeared by the tens of the thousands in numerous states, including Georgia). If Republicans fail to achieve that plus-fraud margin, they will never win another election, was the common wisdom. Now we know that the Democrats are fearless in perpetrating their fraud and there is no media checks and balances. The alphabet media could literally film the delivery of a truckload of (D) ballots and not report it, or even be the ones delivering the fraudulent ballots.
So yeah, I am a bit discouraged and will be until Trump wins. Then I will be more cheerful and hopeful and optimistic because there will be a reason to be. Right now, and if he does not prevail, there is reason to be . . . realistic. Does this mean I won’t vote or that I won’t keep fighting to my eyeteeth? Of course not, but it also means that this election changes everything.
It’s bad enough to know that you have to win in a landslide to beat the Democrat fraud, but to know that we can achieve that landslide and still watch the fraudulent steal unfold right in front of our eyes . . . and then be told it’s not happening and/or to just suck it up and soldier on. Grr.
Yes, it’s discouraging and infuriating, but no, I will not give up, and no, I am not suggesting anyone else do so (and I would be stunned if anyone followed my lead, or anyone else’s! One thing we know about us is that we think for ourselves). What I am concerned about is what we do to fight back. Winning in a landslide is no longer the answer. So what is?
Personally, I would like to see the elimination of all early voting, all same-day voter registration, and a requirement for a reason for requesting absentee ballots (and they need to be requested, not just mailed out willy nilly and picked up by random “activists”). I’d like to see each state keep their voter rolls updated. I moved from Massachusetts ten years ago, but I bet I’m still on their voter rolls. (No, I didn’t take myself off, but once a person moves and registers to vote in their new home state, they need to be purged from the voter rolls in their former state of residence; likewise, when someone dies, they are taken of social security rolls, so let’s take them off voter rolls, too). Everyone without a viable reason for an absentee ballot can turn their ass out on Election Day and vote; if that’s too hard, I would be open to discussing two consecutive Election Days, but voting months early or even weeks early is ridiculous, as is some SJW rounding up seniors in nursing homes and “helping” them fill out their ballots and carrying them off as if they are valid. We can do a lot to secure our elections.
The same (“a state that went for President Trump by large margins but magically ended up in Biden’s win column”) is arguably also true of VA, but I doubt Trump will bother contesting it.
What Trump should show Biden during the transition:
You have zero mandate Joe. Seventy million people voted for Trump and you hid in your basement while you let the Democrat governors and mayors do your dirty work for you and steal the election. I, for one, am going to say the same thing to you, that your followers said to Trump, “not my President.”
Political climate cooling… warming… change, yes. And diversity dogma, not limited to systemic racism, that denies individual dignity, individual conscience, and intrinsic value, and normalizes color blocs, color quotas, and affirmative discrimination, under the Twilight faith (penumbras and emanations or conflation of logical domains); Pro-Choice, selective, opportunistic, relativistic (e.g. “ethics”), politically congruent (“=”) quasi-religion of the Progressive Church.

I don’t agree with, or even respond to, notamemberof because he tends to be easily excited but it’s just another way of saying it’s not over until it’s over. It’s only four days after the election with the electoral college vote weeks away, and you can bet the Trump organization has plans. The next few weeks should be most interesting.

Heh, I actually rather like a glass of reisling on occasion, so good call. My favorite, though, is a nice Pinot Grigio.

I hear Biden will be adopting a pet unicorn for the White House.
I was a child/teenager at the end of the Jim Crow era. I refuse to believe that blacks are worse off now than they were then. If they are, it’s by their own choice in most cases. We see blacks refusing to study, because it’s “acting white,” and then being admitted to prestigious universities with affirmative action outweighing the students’ lack of preparation. Free housing, free food, free phones and internet, affirmative action in jobs and schools — all are freely available and yet are not enough. I refuse to be labeled a racist or be compelled to self-censor because some other person sees a microaggression in how I say hello. Here’s a macroaggression: Leave me alone in my well-heated and well-air conditioned house (as appropriate) and attend to your own pathologies.
I do not have the stamina to retro-read all the posts that have appeared here in these threads claiming the time is now, right now to load up, distill water, and port potties in defense of attacks upon Mr Trump.
Rednecks, rednecks all, in that now Mr Trump, now that he’s defeated, both electorially and popularly, with everyone now in more danger of succumbing to, to having to kneel down to, the creators of this bright apocalypse, why stop with guns for defense?
With all the guns and potties and distilled water in store, why not attack? Formerly erect and ready to use lethal force to defend against some ethereal, nonsense enemy of your political, cultural, and religious positions, why not use those same instruments to overthrow by violence the new regime?
Hypocrites. Where is yalls will to arms now? Hypocrites.
Biden may be a pluperfect fool, but Mr Trump is not far behind.
Biden may be an asshole, but Trump is way far ahead in that biological race. Neither could cite a single principle, either of economics or of law, where either entailed the notion of “rule of law” because neither has a clue about its meaning.
I’m reminded of a wag’s remark when the election of 200 was near upon us, driving its own brand of idiocy. Something similar may have been applied to Baby Bush, but the remark I have in mind tagged only his opponent.
If, to win the presidency, the wag laughed, if winning required dressing as a cabbage, Al Gore would do it, door to door, he’d do it, in a bottle like a tweedle beetle, even if he smelled like sauerkraut smelling like sauerkraut.
I’ve heard from some quarters, that the Constitution itself does not contain principles, per se. If it did, then why has the Supreme Court has spent so much time and ink overturning them?
What I’ve heard, maybe even read, where?, is that the Constitution was merely the codification to support the principles put forth in the Declaration of Independence, the document containing the principles without which the would ring oh so hollow.
How does this sound?
Wait Just a Minute! Some Very Good News May Be Coming
By Jay Valentine
Like many, I spent the last few nights waking up at 2:03 A.M., no reason, then looking at my phone for news, any news, that might be positive for President Trump. I survived on Rush, Bongino, Mark Levin. When the news continued to be ugly, I even checked in on ridiculous bloggers promising that ballots were watermarked and D.J. (our household name for a president we love) was actually launching a sting on the Deep State.
Enough already. Stop the madness.
Hey, I have a degree in statistics, and I have some level of critical thought. If there is such pessimism in my tribe, I am not going along.
So today, I started to dig into the numbers, and as I did, I fought my confirmation bias at every step.
I realized that I, like millions of others, had been numbed into despondency by the overwhelming press, media, social media push to certify President-Elect Biden. (I put that in there so you can see how repellent it is.)
Hey guys, this thing is not only not over; it is scary for Biden. I mean really scary, and most of all, the media know it. Thus, the rush to get everyone in line with the narrative that a 78-year-old, early-dementia former V.P., who could not draw a crowd larger than a dozen, just beat D.J. in a fair election.
Process that for a moment.
Start with Pennsylvania. Biden, as of this writing, is at 290 electoral votes. Pennsylvania is 20.
I read the Justice Alito opinion, and it is pretty clear that he wants the after election night at 8:00 P.M. votes separated for a reason. Biden is going to lose at the Supreme Court, and they know it. Four justices already said the Pennsylvania Supreme Court cannot adjust voting rules. A new arrival, Justice Barrett, says she is there to apply the rules in the Constitution. OK, wanna bet she does?
Remove the after 8:00 P.M. ballots, and Biden loses Pennsylvania. Biden 270.
Let’s visit Nevada. I have lots of friends in California who have condos in Nevada to evade state taxes. There are not a couple of people doing this; there are tens of thousands. Everyone knows it, and California seeks them out.
Our old pal Harry Reid knows it as well, and he apparently has them voting in droves in this election. Probably not a big D.J. constituency. Within 72 hours of the election, the Trump team found, validated over 3,500 of them. I do not suspect that Trump’s people stopped counting.
Every one of these is a ballot reduction for Biden
Nevada, as of now, is well within reach for DJ and the Trump team — particularly when the California crowd is reduced. And a few of them may testify since a false vote is a very bad thing, with jail time if convicted. Maybe a bigger story here.
Remember where we are, people. Biden is at 270 after a highly probable Supreme Court decision (read Alito and concurring opinions).
Lose Nevada, lose the election.
But wait: it gets better.
Let’s visit Wisconsin. Right now, it is 20,000 votes in Uncle Joe’s direction. Lots of stories out there, well below the Google fold, that there are way more Wisconsin votes than there are registered voters. OK, maybe the dead can vote up there — probably a Midwest thing.
Well, last night, we found that Wisconsin election clerks were told, and followed the direction, to modify mail-in ballots and fill in the blanks where witnesses left out critical info.
I am sure it was just a good customer service thing and they meant no harm. The problem is every such ballot is now toast.
There were “thousands” of such prima facie wrongful votes. Oops. Biden up 20,000 — now that number is in question. No more truckloads of votes coming in, so every ballot D.J.’s team eliminates gets President-Elect Biden on step closer to former V.P. Biden who lives in a basement. Not good here.
North Carolina. That one pretty much looks like as though it is over and D.J. won it. Fox News is rumored to call it for Trump around April 2021.
Remember where we are here. Biden is probably going to lose Pennsylvania, so if he loses even one state, even one Electoral College vote, ouch!
Either D.J. wins outright, or it goes to the House, which means that D.J. has four more years.
We’re not done yet.
Michigan. Oh, yes, the land of the “glitches” in the voting machines. Six thousand votes for Trump given to Biden in one of 47 counties where that software is used. About 150,000 votes in Biden’s favor right now.
Google the 130,000 Biden votes that showed up in the middle of the night, and you can see how the wonderful people at Google are fact-checking this “debunked” story. In fact, for fun, Google “Michigan voter fraud,” and you get literally three pages of “this was fact checked and proven to be false.” Why would Google be so assiduous?
They too see that if Amy votes with the four, Biden is one vote away from the basement.
Lawsuits in Michigan and the other states are being launched, and discovery will take place. Google will not be there.
Voter fraud is kind of like larceny. A little is OK. It is even kind of entertaining.
Dead people have been voting for a hundred years in Democratic cities. It is such a constant that one would think the Republican Party would consider a Dead Voter Outreach program to get their share.
But voter fraud on this scale is just not sustainable. It does not pass the common sense test.
We have bloggers with lots of time on their hands going through voter rolls and showing that person after person who voted in a swing state also fought in the Civil War or maybe the War of 1812. It was funny at first, but the overwhelming number now goes beyond humor and rubs our faces in it.
I think D.J. has to swing one state. Actually, one electoral vote. Not only is this thing not over, but the Biden team must be sweating bullets.
Voter fraud at scale seemed like a really cool idea until D.J. went to the mattresses. Now that he is fighting it out one voter at a time, with the Supreme Court likely to create the starting point at Biden 270, Biden has everything to lose.
Whether or not a razor thin victory constitutes a mandate depends on whether it was a Democrat or Republican victory.
