with congressional and state election losses

WASHINGTON — Heading into the election, Democrats dreamed it would go something like Star Wars, with rebel forces blowing up the Death Star and celebrating in the streets as a blue wave swept them into power in Washington and state capitals across the country. But President-Elect Joe Biden's victory ended up looking more like the horror movie Alien, with the last bedraggled survivor kicking the monster out the airlock and then drifting off to an uncertain fate in deep dark space. And wherever they ended up, there would probably be another alien. Yes, Biden soundly defeated President Donald Trump — and there

Comments:

First time in history a party ''wins'' the White House but underperforms at every other level. I guess the phony ballot manufacturers were not paid enough to mark anything but the Biden box.

Or maybe the Dems only bothered to steal one office.

If federal courts allow Biden to be deemed as elected, the Georgia senate runoffs will be a joke. Dimocrats will simply overwhelm the system. Same with 2022 and 2024.

The down ballot Democrat losses are a clear indication that there was fraud at the top. They were so focused and frantic to stuff the ballot box for Biden that they forgot or didn't have the time to even mark the down ballot positions. Absolutely positively the DNA marker of vote cheating.

I was enjoying this article - they were surprisingly candid except about Biden’s winning. The fact that the Democrat down tickets at all levels did so badly may be the most glaring example of the tinkering that went on with his presidential “win”. The tinkerers didn’t realize what was going on in other races across the country. Biden’s bogus “win” now stands out like a very pustulent sore thumb… Along with all the evidence expected to be presented to the courts, this should attract what Justice Barrett referred to - a legal condition called “judicial notice”...

Remember when Dems lost but were really close so they cowed gullible Pubs into 'sharing' chairmanships or some such? Trumps 1st term was stolen, looks overwhelmingly suspicious like the fix is in for his second. Let's go with the the down ticket as is and let Biden be VP, Trump POTUS.

Alternatively, The GOPe types wanted the President out badly, so they agreed to cooperate with the top of the ticket fraud, but refused to allow anything below that, per agreement. Might explain why so many of them are strangely silent about the election fraud.

Five question need to be answered in front of the nine (esp. the Conservative Five) Justices - - What is need in the US electoral system of machines which can manipulate or eliminate a candidate's ballots at will? - Who ordered and authorized use and purchase of these machines in 2020? - What was the purpose of such authorization? - What use were these machines put to on the night of Nov3/4? - What was the result of such use? And of course all the follow on questions and cross examination under oath. If this occurs the house of cards called President Elect Biden will come crashing down. Look for the Deep State and Fake News to put up the most vicious fight so far to prevent this from happening.

This article states that "Biden soundly defeated President Donald Trump," however it ain't over till the fat lady sings and she is yet to leave the dressing room. The election was held on November 3, a mere 19 days ago. There are several states that have yet to certify election results and recounts have yet to be completed. Numerous lawsuits hare wending their way through the state and federal courts and some are likely to en d up before the US Supreme Court. Until the entire process has run its course it is premature to declare a winner. After all, laws and court processes are there for a purpose.

When this election fight is done, the Dims will be crying when they lose the House. Sidney Powell says there is evidence that every Dim started with a 35,000 bonus vote. I don't know if that gets down to the tiniest office, but it could surely effect a lot of races that don't look close now.

It ain't over yet, Dems... every GOP candidate who lost in his/her District/State would be well advised to demand an audit of their election, post haste. It's quite likely Nancy lost her majority this time.

A majority of voters say they want Republicans to remain in control of the Senate in the new year after the Georgia runoff races, according to a new Harvard CAPS-Harris poll. Fifty-six percent of voters said they want a divided government with Republicans in control of the upper chamber, according to data released exclusively to The Hill. Forty-four percent of voters said they wanted Democrats to control the Senate. “As of now, the voters want divided government and their votes for the Senate and House indicate that as well,” said Harvard CAPS-Harris polling director Mark Penn. “This is a strong

Cullors said she wants Biden to quickly pass the BREATHE Act, which would defund police services in reinvest the money in community services.

Black Lives Matter activists have a message for Democrats blaming the party’s losses down-ballot on their call to “defund the police”: Show us the receipts. In the wake of weekslong public attacks on the slogan by Democratic elected officials, movement leaders are mulling counteroffensives to push back on the criticism. A major theme of any response would be that moderate Democrats have failed to produce evidence to prove that the “defund” push caused unexpected defeats in House and Senate races. Instead, they say, the complaints are based on isolated anecdotes. Without a defense, some organizers fear centrist Democrats could use

New York's public schools closed Thursday, sparking debate over whether the measure will help fend off a second coronavirus wave when classroom transmission is low and non-essential businesses remain open. While European countries have so far kept schools open, focusing instead on shutting down indoor dining, bars and gyms, America's most populous city has taken the opposite approach. Mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday the United States's biggest public school system, which teaches 1.1 million students, would revert to remote learning Thursday "out an abundance of caution."

Fifty-nine members of Congress reported owing student loans in their latest financial disclosures published last year, including Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. Collectively, the 59 lawmakers with student loan debt owe at least $2.4 million. Both Ocasio-Cortez and Omar reported owing between $15,001 and $50,000 in

This is why you don’t swallow conspiracy theories whole-cloth without waiting for evidence to be presented. Amazingly, it appears that Trump’s own campaign is now disowning Sidney Powell’s fairly out there claims about German servers and millions of switched votes. And I don’t say that as someone who wouldn’t want to believe it if there was proof, but there was obviously no proof and plenty to the contrary. Here’s the Trump campaign today essentially telling Powell to go jump in a lake, which is probably the most surprising development of the last several months. Well, this is awkward.
