;Fox and Newsmax, and OANN will soon follow, had to stop lying to their audiences about the election and admit all their lies were just that, lies. It was that or get ripped in court and they knew it. They looked good eating crow too, especially Lou Dobbs. "The far-right and overwhelmingly pro-Trump “news” outlet Newsmax had to issue a two-minute statement listing all the things that had been claimed on their show that were backed up by zero evidence after being threatened with a defamation lawsuit."

This next bit is a killer ... "Fox News lawyers tell court: our audience doesn't assume we tell the truth." It's embarrassing to admit to being conned. How much more proof do the trumpsters need?

Dwight Burns

So true. I, for one, would like to see the return of the "Fairness Doctrine."

In my many years, I never thought for a moment I would witness an attempt by an American President to install himself as Dictator in chief or a news outlets used as propaganda arms of the WH.

We, who live in this Democracy

depend on the truth. Be it good or bad, we must have confidence that our elected officials will be truthful with us that our Democracy might continue to stand.

Carlos Ponce

Looks like the Liberal news services don't cover DUELING ELECTORS. It's not over, folks. Sit back and watch God at work!

Gary Scoggin

You seem awfully confident as to whose side God is on. I think when you bring God into political squabbles, all yo do is diminish Him.

Carlos Ponce

No, Gary Scoggin. It does not diminish God.

Satan wants babies aborted in this country and throughout the world..

Satan wants an open border to allow child trafficking, people trafficking, drug trafficking into this country.

Satan wants Biden. Biden would accomplish Satan's goals.

Are you a pawn of Satan?

Gary Scoggin

No. But I’m not a false prophet either.

Carlos Ponce

If you're for the Biden plan for defending abortion, funding it throughout the world and open borders... that's not from God but from His adversary.

George Soros

HAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Dwight Burns

God does not like liars. You of all people should know this.

Robert Braeking

This election was totally fraudulent. No way on God's green earth did sleepy, basement dwelling Joe get enough legitimate votes to defeat President Trump.

George Soros

LOL

Thomas Carpenter

Dueling electors, what a joke. Only those credentialed by each state's secretary of state count. Dueling electors ... keep dreaming. Count them, 81,000,000 Americans don't like kids in cages and a dozen private phone calls with the Russians. That worked out real well for America. Your own party leaders said the election was fair. Get over it. Suck it up (where have I heard that) and nobody really cares about your feelings. You elected a monster, a sociopath, and he's killed more than 300,000 Americans. Bunker Boy has no where left to run ... except Russia!

Carlos Ponce

Look it up, Thomas Carpenter DUELING ELECTORS.

'"81,000,000 Americans don't like kids in cages " Then why didn't Thomass Carpenter say anything when OBAMA put kids in cages.

The 81,000,000 are Chinese who voted Biden.

"Your own party leaders said the election was fair. " I'm not a Republican, I'm not a Demonrat.

"he's killed more than 300,000 Americans. " Only an IDIOT who has no concept of how our government works would make such an outrageous statement.

Thomas Carpenter

I notice neither of you mentioned the fact that you've been lied to by your favorite television stations. So where you going to get your lies from now?

Jarvis Buckley

Lot of Biden says, in the article. Question I want to know. Where is Hunter?

Carlos Ponce

Careful Jarvis! The Big Guy will call you a "One-Horse pony" like he called Peter Doocy.

Bailey Jones

[thumbup] Nicely written. I agree wholeheartedly,

Jim Forsythe

For those that think that DUELING ELECTORS is going to work, where are the votes in the Senate coming from?

There's no way the House will vote for it!

All this is going to do is lose members for the GOP, because some people will no longer want to be a Republication, after this parade of distorted facts!

No. 2 GOP senator: Efforts to overturn election would 'go down like a shot dog'

Sen. John Thune (S.D.), the No. 2 Senate Republican, warned on Monday that efforts to challenge the Electoral College vote in Congress next month would fall short in the Senate.

Thune, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), a member of GOP leadership and the Senate Rules Committee chairman, used a private caucus call last week to warn members of the caucus against challenging the results on Jan. 6.

Carlos Ponce

Sit back and watch God at work.

Jim Forsythe

Electoral Count Act requires that the winner in a state receive the Electoral vote.

Republicans in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Nevada and Michigan followed the White House’s lead, making their own competing slates of pro-Trump electors, it was a theatrical effort with no legal pathway. Electoral College slates are tied to the winner of the popular vote in each state, and all five of those states have certified their results in favor of President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.

The most the Republicans could do was claim a symbolic moment, saying that the people who showed up would have been the slates of electors had Mr. Trump won those states. But since he lost them, and numerous state and federal courts have rejected his and his allies’ baseless claims of voting fraud, these groups have no actual significance.

Mr. Trump’s supporters have also seized upon some superficial murkiness in the Constitution and federal law as to whether a state legislature could appoint its own slate of electors.

Since the Electoral Count Act was enacted in 1887, a situation akin to “dueling electors” has happened only once, when Hawaii was in the throes of a close recount in 1960. The governor of Hawaii signed off on a Republican slate of electors for Richard M. Nixon before the recount was completed; when it was finished and showed John F. Kennedy ahead, the governor had to send a new Democratic slate to Congress. The Democratic slate was accepted.

The Constitution stipulates that states select their electors “in such manner as the Legislature thereof may direct.” In modern times the states have done that by holding popular elections that determine to whom their electors will be pledged. Various constitutionally enshrined rights and laws would preclude state legislatures from changing the rules and nullifying the popular will after the fact in pursuit of a different outcome.

As Gary said, "You seem awfully confident as to whose side God is on. I think when you bring God into political squabbles, all yo do is diminish Him."

Charles Douglas

Mr. Ponce> You da man!!!!!!!![thumbup][thumbup]

Craig Mason

The terrorists on 9/11 also invoked gods name to justify what they did.

Carlos Ponce

Craig, the 911 terrorists invoked a god, not The God.

Ted Gillis

No Jim, they think God is a con artist just like they are. These people are one the reasons I quit going to church. I couldn’t stand being in the same pew with them. They are hypocrites, and have ruined religion for the rest of us.

Jeff Patterson

The false prophets seem to be very busy these days unfortunately

Carlos Ponce

The False Prophets are Liberal in ideology.

Carlos Ponce

Ted, you really need Jesus.

Thomas Carpenter

Whose god, Mr. Ponce? Lord Kon Tiki Viracocha already pulled off one miracle, much to your dismay.

Carlos Ponce

There is but one God. Those you mention are not.

Thomas Carpenter

Mr. Lambro laid everything out neat and clean. The fact that you whiners insist Trump won speaks loudly about your lack of knowledge of how our government works. Loud mouth Bunker Boy, for once in his life, was held accountable for his egregious behavior. We fired him!

Carlos Ponce

Thomas Carpenter, Trump spent only a few minutes inspecting the White House bunker while Biden spent months in his basement bunker. The only Bunker Boy is Biden.

Ted Gillis

I’ve had enough of your Jesus, Carlos.

Carlos Ponce

We'll pray for you, Ted Gillis.

Jeff Patterson

So just to level set us all here, religion/spirituality is saying "I pray for my country, president, etc...."; saying "I purport to speak for God, and God says..." is, let me look it up, ah here it is..........What is a false prophet?. I'll take Demagoguery for $400 Alex (may he RIP).......

Charles Douglas

Mr. Patterson, I don't know what others think unto themselves. My training and schooling concerning the bible is this: we all are born in the human family at birth by a woman! When and until we are born again by accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we then are born into God's family by His Spirit ( John 3:6 ), and are of the Christian faith! Some deal with religion, and others like myself consider Christianity as our faith.

Now we don't propose to speak for God, unless we are operating in a particular spiritual gift supplied by the Spirit Of God ( 1 Corinthians 12: 8-11 ),... but as his Ambassadors in this earth, ( 2 Corinthians 5:20 ) ..as Laborers Together with Him ( 1 Corinthians 3:9 ) and as His Co Workers ( 2 Corinthians 6:1 ) ...we speak His Words of Truth, and witness & act according to what His words says,... for he is the author and finisher of our faith ( Hebrews 12:2 ) and He is the Apostle and High Priest of our confession of the faith he has given us! ( Hebrews 3:1 ).

"The Word of God is a Lamp unto our feet and a light on our Pathway!" ( Psalms 119:105 ). It shows one where he is, and it lights his way to where he SHOULD be going! So then what is my point? God places his Word over his name! ( Psalms 138:2 ). Christians are mandated to speak and practice God's Word. One of my bible professors remarked years ago, "You cannot get on anything higher than God's Word, ...and you should not want to get on anything LOWER than His Word!"

The Word Of God is food for a man's heart or spirit, without it... he is no better than any other Satanic fool acting on behalf of LUCIFER in the earth! While we might not be God, part of our business in this world is to hear, speak, and do God's Word! Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God! ( Romans 10:17 ). Lastly, what then is a 2 dollar definition for faith? Our Faith is released by our words, and corresponding actions with THEM! Angels moves and acts on God's words spoken. ( Psalm 103:20 ).

Faith is spiritual currency we must use to extract from the unseen world, into reality, ...what God has already ....ALREADY provided for his people! ( Ephesians 1:3 ). Man! Yall working me! I said y'all are working ME! Working me with a Pandermic going on....& won't say AMEN or OH MY!!!

Word to the wise, to whoever it might concern, I'd be.careful with that "BLASPHEMING OF THE HOLY GHOST." ( But what to an Ole East Texas Country Boy know anyway? Don't pay me no attention...do your thing!! )

Ted Gillis

Carlos brings up God in his posts as a back stop when he fails to have a credible explanation for things. He also uses religion in a condescending way, like above, claiming that he and unnamed others will pray for me, as if I’ve done something wrong. He should go post in the religious sections.

Carlos Ponce

Praying for Ted Gillis.

The number of deaths this year is expected to be more than eight times the usual increase

https://apnews.com/article/us-coronavirus-deaths-top-3-million-e2bc856b6ec45563b84ee2e87ae8d5e7

Life expectancy may drop by as much as 3 years from 2019. This dwarfs even the opioid crisis.

We will soon escape from the complete failure of leadership. Ironically Inauguration Day is 1/20/2021, a palindrome that will reverse the horrible past four years.

Stay home, wash often, stay apart, and wear a mask.
