President Trump has so far been unwilling to concede to Joe Biden, and his latest argument is the voting machines must have been rigged. Where’s the evidence? Strong claims need strong proof, not rumors and innuendo on Twitter.

Chatter is swirling around Dominion Voting, a company that supplies equipment in some 28 states. What seems to have launched this theory was an early misreport of results in Antrim County, Michigan. In 2016, Trump won 62 percent of its 13,600 ballots, so eyebrows rose this year when the initial tallies showed Biden up by 3,000.

There was a story we read in school that I'll always remember. It was "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" by Ambrose Bierce. In it, a guy is about to be hanged off a bridge by some soldiers. Miraculously, the hangman's rope breaks and he falls into the creek. Against all odds, he manages to escape and swim away. He walks all night to get home to his family and then feels the sharp pain in his neck as it snaps at the end of the rope which had actually not broken - he had hallucinated his miraculous escape in the last few seconds of his life.

That's the Trump administration. Just a little while to go before the head realizes that it's dead.

Carlos Ponce

Dominion has.... DISAPPEARED, offices abandoned.

Gary Scoggin

I saw a reporter broadcasting from in front of their offices last night. Maybe your secret source told you wrong.

Carlos Ponce

"in front of their offices" does not indicate what's INSIDE their offices, Gary Scoggin.

Gary Scoggin

Yes, dear. Is there a source for what you wrote, or is this source a secret as well?

Carlos Ponce

So I have to prove to you that the "front of their offices" doesn't necessarily mean anyone or anything is inside???? DUH, GARY!

Gary Miller

Why did 22 states reject Dominion soft wear? Why did all 20 blue states pay to use Dominion?

Carlos Ponce

WSJ asks, "Where’s the evidence?" it's in the courts. In a major case one does not hand over evidence to the media. All the media can do is distort.

Does Giuliani expect to win in state courts? No.

But it's a step that must be taken before going Federal, where...... Woops! Spoilers!!!!!!

President-elect Joe Biden won Georgia by 12,284 votes, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger's office said late Thursday, relaying the results of a six-day statewide hand recount of the 5 million ballots cast. Raffensperger plans to certify the results Friday, as required by law, effectively handing Biden Georgia's 16 electoral votes. President Trump won Georgia in 2016. The hand recount and audit of election returns in Georgia's 159 counties turned up nearly 6,000 unreported votes in four counties, and Trump gained about 1,400 votes when those were properly tallied. After the recount's results were released, The Associated Press joined other news organizations and declared Biden winner of the state, giving him a projected Electoral College win of 306 to 232.

Carlos Ponce

No questioning of signatures on mail ins,,,,,,[rolleyes]

Jim Forsythe

President-elect Joe Biden won Georgia by 12,284 votes. This is what Georgia will certify today.

This is the results of a six-day statewide hand recount of the 5 million ballots cast.

Trump lost Georgia, and Biden WON Georgia.

Carlos Ponce

The devil went down to Georgia

he was lookin' for an election to steal.....

Carlos Ponce

The man said my name's Donald

and it might be a sin

but I'll take your bet

and you're gonna regret

'cause I'm the best there's ever been

Jim Forsythe

Carlos, which person or groups did not go by the rules in the election in Georgia?

Georgia is Republican, and they set the rules for elections in Georgia.

Are you saying that Republicans' cheated? Are we getting to the point that it is Republican against Republican?

The counting is over, and Trump LOST and Biden WON in Georgia.

Carlos Ponce

Stacey Abrams

Jim Forsythe

Stacey Abrams does not hold a state office in Georgia.

Republican hold all the power and if the election is not up to your standards, you need to talk to the Republican's in charge.

If Trump is being cheated in Georgia, Republican's are the ones in charge, and the ones that did what ever you think is not being done as you think it should, in Georgia.

Republican's are the ones that approved the voting machines, and approved how the election was conducted.

The counting is over and Biden won Georgia.

Carlos Ponce

You asked a question. I answered it. You don't like the answer. That sounds like a JIM FORSYTHE PROBLEM.

Jim Forsythe

What does Stacey Abrams have to do with a Republicans' problem?

Georgia’s audit, launched after unofficial results showed Biden leading Trump by about 14,000 votes cast, ended with Biden winning by 12,284, according to Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s office. The state is expected to certify Biden’s victory .

If you want anyone to blame, blame the Governor, Secretary of State or others that ran the election in Georgia, all Republicans.

Carlos Ponce

Try looking it up, Jim.

Gary Scoggin

"Try looking it up, Jim." Carlos, if you don't reveal your secret source how can Jim look it up? I'm starting to believe you don't have one at all and your "secret source" is just your imagination.

Carlos Ponce

Jim doesn't like any answer I give him so why should I bother?

Jim Forsythe

What does Stacey Abrams have to do with a Republicans' problem?

Dan Freeman

32 cases so far, all but one thrown out without appeal.

Gary Scoggin

Please, Dan. No facts. Facts just confuse those who want to believe that Donald Trump won. We need to let them down easy.

Carlos Ponce

Before you go to the Federal level you must go through the state level.

Did Giuliani expect to win at the state level? No.

"Rudy Giuliani, the attorney for President Donald Trump, said the campaign is prepared to lose election cases in an effort to throw the final decision on the presidential race to the U.S. Supreme Court." Free Republic

Gary Scoggin

“ the campaign is prepared to lose election cases in an effort to throw the final decision on the presidential race to the U.S. Supreme Court.” - Well so far his strategy is working. He’s getting his clock cleaned and embarrassing himself in every court he enters.

Carlos Ponce

As usual, Gary Scoggin doesn't understand how the judicial system works.

Gary Scoggin

Maybe not, but I don’t think bad lawyering is usually an effective strategy.

Carlos Ponce

Rudy Giuliani was a US Attorney and Gary Scoggin?

Jim Forsythe

Time is running out.

Carlos Ponce

Be patient, Jim.

Gary Miller

Loosing in local courts is the first step to going to SCOTUS.

David Hardee

It is hypocritical for either Party to claim, "Holier than Thou." But there is no doubt that the capability of shenanigans are more possible in this election considering the abnormal procedures created by the mass mailings.

It is a result of this election that the credulity of future elections will be suspicious. That is just one more wound to our democracy.

There is a swamp and if we do not purge it of the dastardly creatures the USA will become another footnote in history of a failed society.

The forces from outside our country are enjoying the calamities that they have contributed to. China's virus attack, Iran's and Russia's influences are significant, but they pale compared to the internal infections that have corrupted our election and our society.

Below the swamp is a more treacherous element that has split the society into fractions, media. The word "media" has become a synonym for sewer. Media pollutes our society. The shame for the existence of the swamp and the sewer is on us collectively. This state of affairs is nauseating those in our society who experience the USA before the federal government accumulated the power to control our personal lives under the legislation of the "Great Society."

Pennsylvania House Committee Meetings Schedule:

"Friday, November 20, 2020

*10:00 AM

STATE GOVERNMENT

Informational meeting with Dominion Systems and any other business that may come before the committee. Dominion Systems will be attending virtually."

What's that? "CANCELLED"?

https://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/cteeInfo/Index.cfm?CteeBody=H&Code=36

Why? Oh, Dominion Voting Systems was a NO SHOW and could not be contacted for information.

What's this?

"100 Dominion Voting Systems Employees on LinkedIn Have Deleted Their Profiles After The Election"

But that's okay, there were 243 Dominion employees to begin with leaving 143 still on Linkedin. What's that? That number is dropping......

Maybe Big Guy Biden has offered them a job in appreciation...[unsure]

Gary Scoggin

I don't blame them for deleting their profiles. The MAGAs will start doxxing and otherwise abusing them. It's best for them to keep their heads down while those that refuse to acknowledge reality try to take it our on whomever they can. I had friends at BP who did the same thing after the Deepwater Horizon event for the same reason.

Carlos Ponce

MAGASs don't do that, Gary Scoggin.

You have some strange friends at BP, Gary. My sister worked for BP and ran the New Orleans operation handling claims. She NEVER did anything like that nor even thought of doing it. But since they're friends of yours......

Jim Forsythe

Gary, I remember another time, the BP Texas City Explosion 2005 when my Supervisor told us not to wear anything with a bp logo, in public.

What he told us that people were approaching bp employees in stores and other places, causing conflicts to happen, because of the anti-bp state in Texas City.

Why they were upset was because they knew people that were hurt or killed. For a long time after that, bp did not give out hats, cups and such to employees in Texas City, with a bp on them. What you are talking about was just a continuance of the anti-bp state in Texas City.

People that worked for bp in other parts of the USA, such as New Orleans, did not have the same history as Texas City.

Gary Scoggin

Jim, as usual, Carlos has no idea what he’s talking about.

Carlos Ponce

Jim and Gary, my sister worked for Amoco Chemical Plant B in Texas City, BP, Innovene in Chocolate Bayou. BP admired her work and had her work the claims against Deepwater Horizon working out of New Orleans. She never resorted to hiding whom she worked for. She was VERY familiar with Texas City having grown up in the area and working the Texas City Plant for many years.

SO DON'T TELL ME SHE "did not have the same history as Texas City". She worked there for decades.

Jim Forsythe

Carlos, did she work in Texas City during BP Texas City Explosion 2005 and the Deepwater Horizon event?

By the time the Deepwater Horizon event happen, bad feeling were at a high level. If you Carlos did not work at the Refinery at that time, you have no idea what Gary and I had to deal with when out in public and we knew why people were upset. Do not try and tell us that all was roses, when we live thru this dark time, which had the public upset. One person I know was called a killer because he had a bp hat on.

Carlos Ponce

Yes. And after the Deepwater Horizon event in April 2010 they sent her to New Orleans to settle the claims.

And I know quite a few who worked at BP at the time and were not bothered by their employment at BP. I currently work with a lady who worked for Amoco/BP/Marathon in Texas City during those incidents. No problems, no hiding for whom she worked.

Texas City's livelihood depends on the petrol-chemical industry.They know to be against the plants would kill Texas City. You forget, my relatives lived in Texas City during the Grand Camp explosion in 1947. They healed, rebuilt, recovered.

"One person I know was called a killer..." You Liberals call Trump a killer all the time and continue to do so even though the claim is unwarranted. Just consider the source.

Gary Scoggin

Carlos, why must you persist in arguing about things you know little about? Do you think that Jim's experiences and my experiences didn't happen? Have you ever been verbally attacked in the manner we and our friends have? Perhaps you should try to learn from others' experiences rather than try to force fit them into your narrow paradigm.

But getting away from this diversion, it makes sense that people have pulled their profiles from LinkedIn. Just because someone pulls their profile, doesn't mean they no longer work at a place; it means that they are removing an otherwise public source of information about their employment. With trolls looking to abuse anyone connected to Dominion, it makes sense that people who work there would try to avoid that sort of abuse.

Carlos Ponce

Gary, I was born in Texas City. I went to elementary and junior high in Texas City. I worked in Texas City. I shop in Texas City. The actions and words of a handful (probably Liberals or non-native born) do not reflect the majority of Texas City citizens.

Gary Scoggin

Carlos.. BP was and is a whole lot biggger than Texas City. You're limited experience with it does not constitute full knowledge what people went through throughout the country (and, to some degree, the world).

Carlos Ponce

It was Forsythe who brought up Texas City.

Jim Forsythe

What Gary and I was saying that people were upset, just as they are about Trump trying to say he won the election.

I was a corner store in Hitchcock and a man ask if anyone knew of any jobs on the area. I did not have on any bp stuff, but when I told him contractors at bp was hiring he told me in no uncertain terms that he would starve, before he would ever work at bp.

Even with all this

Biden won the election and will take charge January 20, 2021 at High Noon.

Carlos Ponce

"I was a corner store"?

Jim Forsythe

I was at a corner store in Hitchcock and a man ask if anyone knew of any jobs on the area. I did not have on any bp stuff, but when I told him contractors at bp was hiring he told me in no uncertain terms that he would starve, before he would ever work at bp.

Carlos Ponce

That sounds better. My co-worker would ask that man to compare BP to the current Marathon. She says BP was much better.

Jim Forsythe

We were only talking about what people that did not work for bp said.

I have no experience working for Marathon.

Just as bp was different than Amoco ,I'm sure that Marathon has a different way of doing things.

What I understand is they have a different structure as far as management is concerned.

We always had a supervisor make decisions and they also would work with managers.

Now it is more of a managers driven structure, from what I have been told.

If a new company comes in with a completely new way of doing things, many will not like the change.

Just like when a new President is elected, many are upset because it not going to be done the same as the last guy did it.

Carlos Ponce

From what she describes, Marathon has little investment in the community.

Jim Forsythe

When one is trying to compare Amoco to bp to Marathon, it is hard to do so.

One has to be careful to include what a company did for the community that was driven by fines from regulatory agencies.

On the surface Amoco was much better, but they are no longer in business for a reason.

bp was not as generous as Amoco with community and employees, but you also have to look at what kind of impact each company had on the public's health. They are selling off their plants for a reason.

The other part of what drives what a company does, is the bottom line.

More important that all the above, did (does) each company maintain the plant.

Gary Scoggin

Vladimir Putin couldn’t have scripted the Trump campaign’s current activities any better. Putin has been trying to undermine our democracy for years and Gulliani and the bunch are doing it for him. (Except they aren’t doing a very good job; they are too inept.)

Dan Freeman

Mr. Ponce is making up news about Dominion Voting Systems. If he took the time to check their website he could read the truth: https://www.dominionvoting.com/

Carlos Ponce

Why would I read LIES, Dan? They know they're in serious trouble, praying that a Big Guy pardon will keep them out of prison.

Carlos Ponce

Sidney Powell is going to release a redacted version of the evidence to appease those who claim "no fraud". I do not agree with this pre-hearing revelation but let's see.

Jim Forsythe

We had better all watch out, because Powell is going to release the Kraken. So far the Kraken have just whimpered.

Powell told Lou Dobbs of Fox Business that she is going to “release the Kraken,” and that she “can hardly wait to put forth all the evidence we have collected on Dominion.”

“President Trump won this election in a landslide,” Powell told Dobbs. “It’s going to be irrefutable. Patriots are coming forward every day, all day, faster than we can collect their information.”

November 20, 2020 at 2:47 a.m. CST

As Fox News host Tucker Carlson noted on Thursday night, he’s more than willing to give airtime to outlandish claims. “We literally do UFO segments,” he said.

But even Carlson said he was fed up with the total lack of evidence produced by Sidney Powell, one of the Trump campaign’s attorneys, for her unfounded allegation that electronic voting systems had switched millions of ballots to favor President-elect Joe Biden.

“We invited Sidney Powell on the show. We would have given her the whole hour,” Carlson said. “But she never sent us any evidence, despite a lot of requests, polite requests. Not a page. When we kept pressing, she got angry and told us to stop contacting her.”

Carlos Ponce

Apparently Jim did not listen Tucker Carlson's Show tonight.

"In the last 24 hours we heard a lot about that segment including people in the White House and people close to the President. Like us they have concluded this election was not fair. Sidney Fox came on FOX this morning and suggested that we may not have to wait much longer. 'I fully expect', she says, 'that we will be able to prove all of it in a court within the next two weeks.' As far as we're concerned that is great news. If Sidney Powell can prove the technology companies switched millions of votes and stole a Presidential Election she would have almost single handedly uncovered the greatest crime in the history of this country and no one will be more grateful than us." - Tucker Carlson

Nor did he listen to Sidney's take:

“Apparently Mr. Carlson missed the news conference today. I would continue to encourage him and all journalists to review all the materials we have provided so far and conduct their own investigations. Evidence continues to pour in, but a 5 minute television hit is not my focus now. Collecting evidence and preparing the case are my top priorities.”

Tucker Carlson's representative did not offer her the "whole hour".

Gary Scoggin

So who is the bigger liar, Tucker Carlson or Sidney Powell? I will say Tucker is more or less right .... If Anyone steals this election it will be the biggest crime in history. It’s just that Trump is the one trying to steal it.

Carlos Ponce

So who is the bigger liar? Gary Scoggin.

Gary Scoggin

Yes, dear.

Bailey Jones

Powell is just another fraud about to join the - really quite huge now - pile of personalities destroyed by their attachment to #worldsbiggestloser. She has no Kraken. She's nothing more than another sad Trumpuppet fawning for the love and attention of #worstpresidentever. Her "evidence" is just more of the same hearsay conspiracies and vague innuendo that we see in the comments section day after day, month after month. It evaporates in the bright light of judicial scrutiny. But the Trumpsters believe it all, much to their detriment, and the detriment of our nation.

Jim Forsythe

Sydney Powell throws Republicans under the bus.

Sydney Powell also questioned GOP victories in House and Senate races. To explain how Republicans won down ballot as Trump lost to President-elect Joe Biden, Powell charged that congressional Republicans participated in a scheme to manipulate the vote. “We have no idea how many Republican or Democratic candidates in any state across the country paid to have the system rigged to work for them,” she said.

“To insinuate that Republican and Democratic candidates paid to throw off this election, I think it’s absolutely outrageous, and I do take offense to that,” Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst said. “To have that accusation just off-handedly thrown out there, just to confuse our voters across the United States, I think that is absolutely wrong.”

Texas Rep. Kay Granger, said: “I think it’s time to move on.”

Charles Douglas

I smell serious confrontation in the air! My "Dougie" senses tells me there are consequences & repercussions on the way in this nation! Remember what they said about a house, city, or nation decided?

Correction >>>>I smell serious confrontation in the air! My "Dougie" senses tells me there are consequences & repercussions on the way in this nation! Remember what they said about a house, city, or nation DIVIDED?

Bailey Jones

The "evidence" met reality today in Pennsylvania -

“This Court has been presented with strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations, unpled in the operative complaint and unsupported by evidence. In the United States of America, this cannot justify the disenfranchisement of a single voter, let alone all the voters of its sixth most populated state. Our people, laws, and institutions demand more.

“This Court has been unable to find any case in which a plaintiff has sought such a drastic remedy in the contest of an election, in terms of the sheer volume of votes asked to be invalidated. One might expect that when seeking such a startling outcome, a plaintiff would come formidably armed with compelling legal arguments and factual proof of rampant corruption. That has not happened.

“Even assuming that they can establish that their right to vote has been denied, which they cannot, Plaintiffs seek to remedy the denial of their votes by invalidating the votes of millions of others. Rather than requesting that their votes be counted, they seek to discredit scores of other votes, but only for one race. This is simply not how the Constitution works."

- Judge Matthew Brann

“With today’s decision by Judge Matthew Brann, a longtime conservative Republican whom I know to be a fair and unbiased jurist, to dismiss the Trump campaign’s lawsuit, President Trump has exhausted all plausible legal options to challenge the result of the presidential race in Pennsylvania." - Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.)

tick tock

Carlos Ponce

Everything is as scheduled, Bailey.

Gary Miller

Bailey> PA mailed out 1.8 million Mail in ballots. Then claim they counted over 3 million mail in ballots? A Michigan county had 20 % more votes than they have residents or 40% more votes than they have registered voters? Other counties in blue states recorded more votes than they had registered voters.

Carlos Ponce

"Judge Matthew Brann, a longtime conservative Republican ..." appointed by OBAMA. Birds of a feather....

Ted Gillis

Right on schedule to be dismissed by another court.

Carlos Ponce

Wait until it reaches the Supremes... and I don't mean Diana Ross!

Bailey Jones

You seem awfully confident, Carlos. We've already got $1K riding on this, how about upping the stakes? If Trump is able to overturn this election and gain a second term, in addition to the $1K donation we already agreed to, I never write another comment in the GCDN. If he doesn't, and Biden takes office, you never appear in the comments section again.

You in?

Carlos Ponce

I will never be part of denying anyone's freedom of speech including the right to express views in the Galveston Daily News. I'm not a fascist. We need a balance of opinion. Your check for the students of Hitchcock ISD will be sufficient.

Bailey Jones

Oh c'mon, Carlos. I think this would be an epic idea. Trumpsters vs the Never Trumpers. Gary vs Gary. Ted vs Charles. Jim vs Jarvis.

Bailey vs Carlos. Winners take all!

Don't worry about my freedom of speech. If #worldsbiggestloser somehow steals the election I won't have time to comment anyway - I'll be in the streets with 100 million other Americans taking our country back.

Jim Forsythe

Sidney Powell is too crazy, even for Trump, and that's saying a lot since Trump still has Rudy. Trump has cut her loose, but she said she will submit an "epic" lawsuit.

“Rudy Giuliani, Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, a truly great team, added to our other wonderful lawyers and representatives!” Trump tweeted on November 14.

Powell accused Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, a Trump loyalist, of conspiring to take down the President in the election, and promised to “blow up” the Peach State with a “biblical” lawsuit.

In a statement released after the Trump campaign cut its ties with her, Powell refused to relent, pledging to submit an "epic" lawsuit this week containing evidence of the claims that have alienated her from the president's allies.

Carlos Ponce

As Jim from Galveston said on a talk show, "Sidney Powell is a free agent." When she came out with her news conference, Liberals did what they always do - attack the messenger. If she discovers wrong doing from any political party Democrat or Republican she will reveal it. Isn't that what we all want or is it just rhetoric?[rolleyes]

Let the axe fall where it may!

Jim Forsythe

“Rudy Giuliani, Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, a truly great team, added to our other wonderful lawyers and representatives!” Trump tweeted on November 14.

Gary Scoggin

"Only the best people." "So much winning."

Jim Forsythe

Gary, just in , more winning.

The Michigan State Board of Canvassers voted Monday to certify the state's election results, formally granting President-elect Joe Biden the state's 16 electoral votes.

Carlos Ponce

That's only half the story, Jim.

From Michigan Secretary of Stare Jocelyn Benson:

"By state law, an audit can't be performed until the vote is certified."

"Following the certification of Michigan’s elections, our statewide risk-limiting audit will be paired with comprehensive local audits."

Detroit Free Press

In order to do an audit the election had to be certified. By certifying the election, a proper audit can be performed. No certification - no audit.

Jim Forsythe

All 538 electoral votes have been accounted for, leaving Biden at 306, Trump at 232. It only takes 270 votes to win, which means Biden has a cushion of 36 votes. All that is left is the certifications which has started.

Biden is currently winning all five states by significant margins: Pennsylvania ; Georgia ; Michigan; Arizona; and Nevada.

In any combination, Trump would need to have election results overturned in at least three of those states to surpass 270 votes.

Gary Miller

Jim> When SCOTUS tells Congress to decide the election the EC expires. Trump wins 30 to 20.

Gary Scoggin

That's not how the SCOTUS or the Constitution works. But then again, the Constitution doesn't matter much to the MAGA class. It's all about stroking the ego of the lame duck President.

Jim Forsythe

The U.S. Constitution says only state legislatures can decide election rules, not the courts.

John Roberts is going to ask , what do you want the Supreme Court to rule on that has not been heard in the lower courts.

John Roberts has said the court must decide cases "according to the Constitution and laws, without fear or favor."

John Roberts made it clear when he added "That’s necessary," he said, "to avoid the politicization of the court.”

Only two times in U.S. history has the Supreme Court or its justices been involved in selecting a president: Hayes v Tilden in 1876, and Bush v Gore in 2000.

Carlos , what is Trump going too the Supreme Court with that has not been already ruled on?

Carlos Ponce

Wait and see. John Roberts is but one SCOTUS.

Charles Douglas

"Typically, the Court hears cases that have been decided in either an appropriate U.S. Court of Appeals or the highest Court in a given state (if the state court decided a Constitutional issue). The Supreme Court has its own set of rules. According to these rules, FOUR of the

NINE Justices must vote to accept a case."

We now have THREE Socialist Justices on the Supreme Court! We have ONE RINO Sitting there, and we now have THANKS to Trump, and Big Mitch,.... FIVE Constitutionalist Justices who will rule according to the constitution. Let's see now 3+1 RINO = 4. Finish it.

Those 4 vs. 5 real Justices means TRUMP DIESEL is still in business.

lets drink a toast to the NEXT American President ...Mr. Donald J. Trump! John Roberts use to be a factor on the Court, but now he is just another LOUD MOUTH RINO like RUMNEY, & General Kelly, and General Mad Dog Matis! Trump rules!!!!!!! Lolo. It is not over until Rosie O'Donnell sings Stand By Me!!!!!!!

Gary Scoggin

Charles -- with all due respect, I'm not sure you understand what a Socialist is. And the entire election debacle isn't a socialism vs capitalism thing anyway. It's a Constitutional issue regarding how it, and the laws flowing from it, apply to the facts of this election. These fanciful theories that the SCOTUS is going to magically hand Donald Trump another term based upon rumors unsupported by any facts offered as evidence in a court are just a way to enable the President and his acoytes to whine for the next four years. Kind of like the Democrats did after Bush v. Gore, except that case was a lot closer and didn't hinge on as many wild conspiracy theories.

Bill S.

With the outrageous number of votes received by Biden, and the clear vote reporting errors made to favor him, it's unimpeachable to me there is something going on behind the scenes to relieve President Trump from being President. They have been doing NOTHING but trying to do that for four straight years, and now it seems that possibility exists. Keep in mind, 70+ million "silent majority" voters are still waiting on the sidelines to see what transpires. I am of the opinion, the outcome will be horrendous regardless. Our Country has been put in a situation for which there is no outcome that will not be explosive.
