It's been 15 days since the presidential election, and 11 days since major news organizations declared Joe Biden the winner. President Trump has not conceded and continues to press challenges to the results in states that he won in 2016 but have been called for Biden this time -- Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin.

It is pointless. He doesn’t ever have to concede. They just want him to bow down before Slo Joe and his backers. Never! Stacey Abrams never conceded. Hillary never conceded. Obama never left. So what’s the big deal?

In the 80's it looked like Reagan was trying to get us into WW3. I spent a lot of time very tense. It didnt help that every time he gave a speech our base called an alert and we had to report in for deployment. Turns out he knew what he was doing. I think Trump does too.

He should not concede. The election is stolen, and as we have observed few others have the guts to stand up to Donkey messaging, threats and mockery If Trump doesn't, no one will and that is the end for democracy in America.. it is on Trump to withstand. And let us nite the weakness of ao many others. So so so weak.

Why on earth would Trump concede an election with millions of illegal votes? I think some people need to have their heads checked to think anyone would accept being cheated by a buffoon like Biden, and lying, cheating, criminals, like the Democrats. Don't even raise this question again!

"In more blunt terms, helping Republicans win the Senate would be the best way for Trump to stick it to Biden, to stick it to Chuck Schumer, to stick it to Nancy Pelosi, to get some measure of payback, and to walk away from Washington with Republicans having real power to preserve some of Trump's accomplishments"---what insight, Mr. York...you must run a dating service on Capital Hill on the side. Byron, tell that fuzzy Australian Wombat, KRM, that 'President-Elect' is reserved for certified nominees. He should know better if he wants to run a media organization in this country.

It's our last stand. Assuming this election is successfully stolen, it means 2016 was our last valid election. The progressives will seize power and rig the system to ensure a candidate from outside the ruling class can never win again. We will have to either accept this and live out our lives watching our remaining freedoms steadily erode, or it will lead to a violent revolt. I'm old enough that it won't make that much difference to me, but my kids and grandkids are screwed. President Harris will give new meaning to the old song "California Here I Come" as she brings permanent one-party rule and California-style progressivism to the federal government. I'm moving to Idaho but in the end that won't make much difference. Mr. President, please, DO NOT CONCEDE.

A back door way to use anonymous "Republican" sources to promote the Democrat Big Lie and talking point that Trump's supporters "don't have the evidence to back it up." They do have the evidence. And lots of it.

It certainly is not necessary for Trump to concede and Biden will get his transition money when the right time comes concession or not. Why make it any easier for Joe & Blow than it was for Trump when he came into office. Peaceful transition?? BS Trumps was not peaceful and it has not been peaceful for him for 4 years. Trump showed us how corrupt the democrats and Joe Biden are, and Biden will spend his time hiding evidence, and getting richer for himself and his democrat friends.

If your sitting at the blackjack table and you turn over 21 and the dealer just says he wins without turning over his cards and letting you see what he has do you concede? They won't let us see the face of the cards or verify the seal on the deck or have any "meaningful observation" of how the deck was shuffled. The word for people that concede at this point is "sucker". If the dealer has thrown away the cards so there's no chance of seeing what he had you go to the gaming commission and file a complaint.

We know our own FBI participated in trying to undo Donald Trump's 2016 election. We know our worthless MSM coordinated with leakers to malign President Trump. We know the Democrats were willing to abuse Donald Trump and 70 million-plus supporters for the past four years. We know they're trying to steal the election. I can't think of any reason for President Trump to give these swamp creatures the benefit of the doubt on anything. They are dangerous and untrustworthy, and far more corrupt than I could have imagined in November of 2016. I expect our remarkable president and attorneys to do everything in their power to "stop the steal." They are trying to save our Republic.

If he concedes, WE go to war to eliminate this corruption of America. We've had enough.

President Trump should follow the US Constitution and the law. Nowhere in all those laws is Trump required to concede the election, and since there has been so much clear election fraud, Trump should never concede. The only Republican politicians who would oppose that are the “UniParty” types who are on the take and who want Trump gone so they can get on with their corrupt activities.

It's not up to the NY Times and Fox News to declare presidents (at least until Biden becomes president). I can see the president never conceding, even after the election. If it comes to that, then I hope he has his own network focusing on everything the MSM has done against him these last five years, only in spades. Then, his entire focus should be on turning Democrat swing states into Republican swing states and re-writing the election laws.

Biden must call for audits — recounts — or Pennsylvania electoral votes denied. Yes, it is true. Philadelphia did in fact keep poll watchers out. The baloney propaganda that they were allowed in to do their job is, as the censors of Facebook might say, “partly false.” This election is NOT over. And most certainly President Trump should not concede. Quite clearly, once allowed into the polling place they were told they had to stand six feet away from the person doing the counting.

A glitch in software used to tabulate ballots in Antrim County, Michigan caused at least 6,000 Republican votes to be counted as Democrat, according to Michigan GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox. The miscalculation, Cox said in a press conference, was first reported by a county clerk. A short investigation revealed that 47 counties in Michigan may have also suffered from a similar glitch with the same software, which could have caused some red counties to rake in a higher number of Democrat votes than usual.

Why packing the Supreme Court would not be easy for Democrats 7 replies
Posted by Moritz55 10/27/2020 10:19:29 PM Post Reply
The size of the Supreme Court isn’t dictated by the Constitution. It’s set by statute. That’s why the high court has had as few as five justices and as many as 10. The size of the Court has remained locked at nine justices after a dispute over justices in the 1860s. Liberal Democrats are making lots of noise now about growing the size of the Supreme Court to tilt the now conservative advantage back in their favor. And Republicans are more than happy to deploy Democratic threats as a wedge issue, one week before the election.

With the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett, we may now be entering the era of the Barrett Court. Her arrival is likely to have the most profound effect on the nation’s highest court since simultaneous appointments of William Rehnquist and Lewis Powell in the 1970s and the replacement of Thurgood Marshall by Clarence Thomas in the early 1990s.

WASHINGTON — Attorney General William Barr said Tuesday the Justice Department has not uncovered evidence of widespread voter fraud that would change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. His comments in an interview with The Associated Press come despite President Donald Trump’s repeated baseless claims that the election was stolen, Trump’s effort to subvert the results of the 2020 presidential election and his refusal to concede his loss to President-Elect Joe Biden. Barr said U.S. attorneys and FBI agents have been working to follow up specific complaints and information they’ve received, but they’ve uncovered no evidence that would change the outcome of the election.

Attorney General William Barr has appointed U.S. attorney John Durham as a special counsel to investigate the origins of the FBI’s probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election. The appointment formalizes Durham’s ongoing probe, but more significantly, would give Durham latitude to continue the politically explosive investigation after President-elect Joe Biden takes office in January. Barr elevated Durham to special-counsel status on Oct. 19 but disclosed the move in a letter Tuesday to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees. The Biden campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Democrats have long viewed Durham’s efforts as political payback
