Patriotism means putting country first and
accepting the election results

Original Article

Posted By: OhioNick, 11/22/2020 9:04:59 AM

As former members of Congress from opposing political parties, we understand how high tensions can run around elections. But we also know that, regardless of whether we are pleased with electoral outcomes, we must accept the results. [SNIP] Remember that, above all, we are not Democrats and Republicans — we’re Americans. Now, it is time for us to act like it. It’s time to put our country first and listen to the will of the people. That’s how we ensure the integrity of our democratic processes for years to come.

Comments:

What's shocking is that both of these women are members of the National Council on Election Integrity.

Really? I think protecting the Constitution is much more important than accepting an illegal election.

Pryce waited 5 weeks for a re-count and she's telling Trump to give it up? Hypocrite!!! How about WTP came out in droves for this President. So much so that they had to stop counting so they could modify the algorithms to steal it away from him. They can both go pound sand! We'll accept the election results when he wins in a landslide!

The second paragraph of this article clearly establishes that the co-authors, a democrat and a RINO, are living in the Twilight Zone: "voters shattered turnout records this year. Historic numbers of Americans voted, and the 2020 elections were safe and secure, despite taking place amidst a deadly pandemic." Yes, Donald Trump received a greater number of votes than any republican candidate, but overall, records were shattered by the number of BALLOTS, not votes. Secondly, their claim that the elections were safe and secure depend on partisan democrat claims and acceptance by Twilight Zone residents.

These people know they stole the election, and twist the definition of patriotism to support their actions. In their warped world all forms of thievery would be considered patriotic. Guess that would make looting patriotic. We've heard BLM 'activists' say that. We are seeing how corruption functions in front of our very eyes.

"Patriotism means putting country first and accepting the election results" One can only hope that the dems can accept the results when the courts throw out their media proclaimations of their biden bite off. Think that's what they mean? Yeah, me neither.

That's true. Being patriotic does mean putting country first after an election, but only if that election was fair and not full of fraud. There were millions and millions of voters that didn't want Obozo elected as president, but they didn't riot or burn businesses because of it. As it turned out, those millions and millions of voters were right about Obozo, and they ended up voting for Trump to save the country. The results of this past election make absolutely no sense except if one factors in fraud. So the REAL patriots will march peacefully and protest peacefully until they have no other recourse but to fight back to save their country.

Patriotism means protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States of America against ALL enemies foreign and domestic. It does not mean blindly accepting anything that goes against the rule of law - including questionable elections.

I refuse to accept and illegitimate and fraudulent election. If they are not exposed now and corrected, all future votes will turn out the way that the elite want it to be. The democrats and republicans involved are starting to sweat. The Gov in Georgia now wants a signature audit after he certified the election. Someone had a discussion with him about his future and him being involved in the fraud. I believe he will indicted along with the Secretary of State.

I will never accept Joe Biden. Why did you louts nominate a criminal to succeed the criminals Obama, and the Clintons in the first place? It is because the Democrat Party is a criminal organization that has to stick together to keep out of jail. This is a stolen election. We will never get to check those servers or see the ballots.

The media obviously care nothing about their own credibility but now may be a good time for them to refrain from lecturing the rest of us on what it means to be a patriot. If the evidence Sydney Powell is promising comes to fruition, she will not only have exposed the biggest election fraud scheme in history, she will have pulverized the co-conspirators in the media. The Cleveland Plain Dealer doesn’t sell enough newspapers to pay the legal fees.

FTA: Remember that, above all, we are not Democrats and Republicans — we’re Americans. And as Americans we should be united in demanding fair elections and honest outcomes. The thought we simply "must accept the results" is ridiculously wrong. We must not accept what our betters merely tell us is a questionable outcome. No corruption should be allowed to stand.

Patriotism means putiing my group in power, you then shut up, or we’ll cutoff the toilet paper supply. The four year investigation of Trump without a predicate or supporting facts was patriotic. Questioning the outcome of an election a dim wins is unAmerican. Are we clear on this?

In order to "ensure the integrity of our democratic processes for years to come" we ought to jettison the fraud-friendly election practices of late and demand in-person voting for the overwhelming majority of voters, voter photo ID at the polling places, regularly purged voter registration rolls, and effective bi-partisan election monitoring at the polling places and vote tabulation centers. If a voter can't be bothered to register to vote and to show up at the polls on election day with a valid photo ID, that voter might be dead, living and voting in another jurisdiction, or just not motivated to vote for anyone. Democrats foisting that voter's illegal vote on the body politic disenfranchises Republican voters. There will be no confidence in our democracy until the Democrats pull back from their election fraud coup against the oldest democratic republic in the world.

Carol Mosely Braun defrauded Medicare by stealing her mother's payment and cashing it for herself, and then took a quarter of a million dollars (worth even more back in the 90s) bunch of trips, paid for by her campaign while her campaign workers went unpaid. And she's talking about ethics and integrity?

Patriotism means knowing the Constitution's basic provisions, and also, patriotism means not slobbering over authority, but instead, having the doubt over political motives that is a if not the main driver of the writing of the Constitution. Slobbering flattery of power is not patriotism. Nota bene.

We're not talking about an election. We're talking about a COUP executed by dangerous electeds and bureaucrats from at least two past administrations, and foreign agitators with global designs on the United States of America. And let's not forget the willing participation of our disgusting anti-American media, which joined forces with traitors attempting to rob American citizens of their right to choose their own president. Why in God's name were voting machines sending information about our PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION over the internet to Spain and Germany??? Somebody needs to go to jail.

To show you how corrupt this election was....Here, in Pennsylvania, 15 votes were recorded in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia voting districts for people whose date os birth was before 01 January 1900. That's right! These voters would be AT LEAST 120 YEARS OLD! And these people voted in person! (The officially recognized oldest American is 115 tears old) Produce these 15 people, and I will believe the ballot count

What's their motivation to urge people to accept what's given to them, no questions asked? Or even allowed? This is NOT patriotism! Our history books tell us of our patriotism, of events like The Boston Tea Party. WHat do you think the British version of those events were at the time? Patriotism, or sedition?

We Free Thinkers know beyond any shadow of a doubt that the Commie Left has had more than a year to plan and execute this farce of an election in especially the Blue States and cities. From bogus ballots, to criminal postmen, to lost and trashed ballots to fixing voting machines and they covered all the bases to assure a win for the demented Biden. hey knew that he could never win otherwise. It is totally irrational to think that the Trump haters and Left could make the American public believe that Biden/Harris could win, especially since Biden lived in his basement all these months and Trump was drawing tens of thousands at each rally for the last six weeks! The fix was in and they had plenty of time to implement it! Trump may not win the second term that we all hoped for but Biden won't be president long anyway. We will be stuck with another Obama in the likes of Harris and the country will have turmoil not seen since the civil war.

Our “journalists” don’t want to remember or remind the public of Al Gore and Hilary Clinton and their non-acceptance of elections either. I believe this election is another coup attempt by the Democrats and Obama after putting the country through four years of trying. If they win it will be the third Obama term with Valerie Jarret running the show. Sure would be interesting to see an unexpected intelligence sweep of that mansion.

If the roles were reversed, this journ-o-list would be singing a different tale. As the left will wage war upon 1/2 of the American people if Trump concedes, I would prefer he just doesn't: fraud or no fraud. The republic is pretty much dead anyway.

Against the backdrop of a pandemic’s blight and wounds from an acrimonious election, a group of acclaimed actors on Sunday will stage an online reading of a religious text with remarkable relevance to the current moment: the Book of Job. Audience members may be drawn to the production by the casting of Bill Murray as Job, the righteous man tested by the loss of his health, home and children, but the real star is the format. Staged on Zoom, it's aimed at Republican-leaning Knox County, Ohio, with participation from locals including people of faith, and designed to spark meaningful conversations across spiritual and political divides.

Tensioned flared in East Akron Saturday night as a mostly white crowd upset with local COVID-19 laws that regulate private businesses and homes protested outside a Black councilwoman’s home, where her friends and family came in greater numbers to her defense. (SNIP) Many in the crowd had shirts, hats or flags supporting President Donald Trump. Some stayed in a black SUV parked on the street in front of Samples’ home. They called Samples and those who came to support her expletives, “terrorists” and “rioting trash." Samples’ defenders called the crowd expletives, “crackers” and "fatties."

Facebook has de-prioritized removing hateful slurs against white people, men and Americans, instead focusing on blocking slurs against black people, gays, Jews and other groups. The change on Thursday in Facebook's algorithm is a shift from the social network's 'race-blind' system that previously removed anti-white insults as well posts such as 'men are dumb' or 'Americans are stupid.' [SNIP] 'We know that hate speech targeted towards under-represented groups can be the most harmful, which is why we have focused our technology on finding the hate speech that users and experts tell us is the most serious,' said Facebook spokeswoman Sally Aldous.

Sam Kennard, the CEO of Australian Self Storage company Kennards’, urged Australian businesses to eliminate Chinese suppliers on Wednesday, News.com.au reported. “The Chinese Communist Government has proven to be difficult to trust,” Kennard told News Corp Australia’s NCA NewsWire. “They’ve placed tariffs on [Australian] lobster, wine, and barley out of revenge or spite and the risk is, you just don’t know who is next,” he said.

Coronavirus was likely spreading in much of the U.S. last December - weeks before China told the officially recognized the new virus, a new study suggests. Blood collected by the Red Cross between December 13 and January 17 was later sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to be tested for antibodies to coronavirus. Testing revealed antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19 in 39 samples from blood donated between December 13 and December 16. Those donations were made in California, Oregon, and Washington.

A New Jersey woman was fired by Starbucks for refusing to wear a “Pride” T-shirt because of her religious beliefs, a lawsuit alleges. [SNIP] During a meeting in a manager’s office in June 2019, Fresse noticed a box of Starbucks’ Pride shirts on a desk. She then asked if she’d be required to wear one, which would be “tantamount to forced speech” because she believes marriage is defined by the Bible as between “one man and one woman only.”

Dennis Kucinich. Few names in Cleveland politics elicit stronger reactions. Elected mayor in 1977 at age 31, he is best known for a tumultuous two-year tenure and for refusing to sell the city-owned utility – then Muny Light -- as the city faced default in 1978, 42 years ago next month. Now 74, Kucinich is publishing a book, “The Division of Light and Power,” about his effort to save the power company, now known as Cleveland Public Power. In an exclusive interview with 3News, Kucinich talked about the book, the current state of the troubled utility and whether his future includes another bid for mayor.

As former members of Congress from opposing political parties, we understand how high tensions can run around elections. But we also know that, regardless of whether we are pleased with electoral outcomes, we must accept the results. [SNIP] Remember that, above all, we are not Democrats and Republicans — we’re Americans. Now, it is time for us to act like it. It’s time to put our country first and listen to the will of the people. That’s how we ensure the integrity of our democratic processes for years to come.

(Tweet) The conversation started the day before.“Republicans like to make fun of the fact that I used to be a waitress, but we all know if they ever had to do a double they’d be the ones found crying in the walk-in fridge halfway through their first shift bc someone yelled at them for bringing seltzer when they wanted sparkling,” the self-proclaimed New York Democratic socialist tweeted.

Georgia’s Dekalb County does not know if it is in possession of the ballot transfer forms used to record the chain of custody for absentee ballots dropped into some 300 drop boxes around the state. The Georgia Department of Voting, Registration and Election responded to an open records request for the transfer forms from Georgia Star by writing that “it has not yet been determined if responsive records to your request exist.” “DeKalb County and VRE are currently operating within its COVID-19 Emergency Response Plan. These remote operations and VRE’s current workload greatly impact how soon responsive records can be provided,” the response from the department stated.

Fox News’ Chris Wallace very noticeably corrected Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar Sunday over his reference to President-elect Joe Biden. Wallace raised a contrast between Biden and President Donald Trump on masks — the former pushing for a 100-day mask commitment and the latter undermining public health officials’ push for masks early on in the pandemic. “If President Trump had worn a mask then and urged everyone to wear a mask then back in April the way Joe Biden is right now, wouldn’t we be in much better shape?” Wallace asked. “Well, Chris, I welcome Vice President Biden

Like Scott S. Powell, I think this presidential election was marked by very obvious fraud. Common sense, longstanding predictable voting behavior patterns in many specific jurisdictions, big data statistical pattern analysis and forensic analysis of Dominion Voting Systems machines and software, and polling place wrongdoings in the contested states don’t just reveal garden variety voting irregularities, but rather overwhelming massive voter and polling place fraud.

Joe Biden has continued to contradict his story regarding his role in the 2011 mission to kill Osama bin Laden, claiming he had suggested doing 'one more pass' over the compound, before telling Obama to 'trust his instincts'. The president-elect recalled the administration's discussion on whether or not to take action during Operation Neptune Spear, in CNN's new documentary, 'President in Waiting,' that aired Saturday night. 'When it came time to go or not go, the president went around the room. I think there were 17 people around the table ... and [he] said, 'what do you think we should do?'

Slanted is the third book by Sharyl Attkisson, and as with her other two, it is a refreshing read. It is nice to know that there are still independent journalists who put fact over opinion, and she is one of those. To no one's surprise, she talks about the shift in the news, from a focus on reporting the facts to more on trying to push a narrative on the American people. Attkisson begins Slanted by talking about George Orwell's book 1984.
