Atlanta— Changes to the way millions of Americans voted this year contributed to record turnout, but that's no guarantee the measures making it easier to cast ballots will stick around for future elections. Republicans (snip) already are pushing for new restrictions, especially to absentee voting. It's an option many states expanded amid the coronavirus outbreak that proved hugely popular and helped ensure one of the smoothest election days in recent years. President Donald Trump has been unrelenting in his attacks on mail voting as he continues to challenge the legitimacy of an election he lost.

See how far you can read without screaming. Will we ever get back to Sgt Joe Friday style of reporting: "Just the facts, ma'am." ? This article is filled with so many lies and biased opinions, there is no way that the writers can claim they did an "honest day's work."

The Democrat(ick)s and all the Leftists are wrong, know they are wrong, and are going kicking and yelling (and as always lying) into the next phase: to stop any effort to make elections honest. This is the turning point in the American Dream of freedom and opportunity... but back to the election... Bless President Trump! and Support Him in his efforts to save us from becoming "just another Venezuela." We must fight and win against this blatant stealing of our future!

Associated Propaganda is part of the death democrats murder machine. Quick question - How come these days so many articles issued forth by the death democrat propaganda organs require two so-called reporters to write them? I guess none of these idiots being pumped out by the college schools of lies and propaganda is capable of stringing words together to form a single sentence.

Too bad we cannot place an asterisk after any AP story to indicate the they are no longer a trusted news source. This story is propaganda. Nothing to see here, right AP (*)? As for Republicans changing voting restrictions, I'll believe it when I see it. Washington (both parties), and the people they represent, want Trump gone by any means necessary. The 2020 election was so overrun with fraud, it can no longer be called an election. It was part of the continuing coup to get rid of Trump. That's the real story. AP (*) - Not a trusted news source.

GTH AssPress. Voting should not be easy, it should be accurate and tamper proof. The presidential election happens once every four years, people should have an ID ready, be registered and show up at the polls in person. Anybody in the hospital who wants to vote can make an appointment with somebody for a visiting vote taker, an honest one. If the day was so darn smooth why did democrats shut it down in the evening and make up pipe leak stories so they could dump big batches of false ballots into the count?

Instead of wasting $900 million on the Sudan, how about we spend that taxpayer money on barrels of purple ink for any election? You vote, you dip your finger in the purple ink. Not before, and definitely not until then, and most assuredly not again that day! I would even offer to roll my fingerprint onto my ballot. A bit primitive, but certainly foolproof. Liking this suggestion more and more.

Largest turnout with ten's of million's fraudulent counting by multiple scans of the same ballots, millions of non existent people on absentee ballots, an adjudication rate of over 65% in Marxist Communist democrat controlled precincts where Dominion vote machines owned by Chinese Communist Party and front companies owned by the Chinese Communist Military, as the personnel running adjudication machine can change the voter choice in random memory on each ballot then released by the operator as accepted as changed. There are videos by adjudication machine operators showing the method in process in real time proving the truth. Dominion's operation manual has the instructions telling and showing how this is done. There were over 106,000 adjudicated votes in Fulton County Ga where there was more than 200,000 absentee and 43,000 early votes yet to be counted. Marxist Communist democrat controlled precincts always have a few large precincts who wait until they know how many more votes they need to be the winner before finishing the count and announcing their winner. Rampant Vote Fraud in Marxist Communist democrat controlled precincts is evident across America.

We cannot accept any election where the Democrats make all the rules, and count the votes, and hide behind the sovereignty shield to protect them from lawsuits. We need a Big 4 CPA firm to do the counting, and ensure the laws are followed. CPAs are trained for public objectivity, and can be sued, if they don't do their jobs. Election officials should be required to sign off on all elections, certifying compliance with the law, and under felony penalties.

One cannot even read past the third word of the headline without seeing biased reporting. There was nothing smooth about an election that leaves at least half the country wondering whether it was legitimate. To claim it was a "smooth election" is like saying Chinese Communist or Soviet elections are "smooth." Really, AP can't do better than this? Why should I believe ANYTHING from these SOBs?!

That’s not happening right now in the battleground state of Pennsylvania, one of a handful of states that elect state Supreme Court justices in partisan elections. Earlier this year in Pennsylvania, the Democrat-dominated state Supreme Court ruled that ballots could be counted up to three days after Election Day, even if it could not be shown that they had arrived by November 3, as required by state law.

Donald Trump's reelection campaign accused Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer of "encouraging assassination attempts" targeting the president on Sunday afternoon, amid escalating conflict between the two political leaders. Trump's campaign, which uses the handle "Trump War Room" on Twitter, based its allegations against Whitmer on a token with the numbers "8645" clearly visible. The token appeared behind her during an interview with NBC News host Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Sunday morning. "Governor Gretchen Whitmer displayed an '86 45' sign during her TV appearance. 86 can be shorthand for killing someone," the Trump campaign tweeted, alongside a screenshot

Americans really are drinking more during the COVID-19 pandemic. New research suggests that alcohol consumption in the United States rose 14% during pandemic shutdowns. The most dramatic increase was in heavy drinking episodes in women, defined as four or more drinks within two hours. Women reported a 41% increase in episodes of heavy drinking in the spring of 2020 compared with their drinking level in the spring of 2019.

Republican Senator Pat Toomey said Sunday morning Donald Trump will be remembered as a president of 'chaos and misery and erratic behavior' if he doesn't sign the $900 billion coronavirus relief bill by midnight.

Toomey said during his interview with 'Fox News Sunday' that he opposes the president's proposed increase of direct checks to $2,000 from the $600 price tag already included in the most recent bipartisan coronavirus relief legislation.

Saturday was a day ending with a “Y,” so that meant Kamala Harris was pandering to another valued Democrat identity group. Saturday’s pander was to those blacks who have embraced Kwanzaa, an anti-white, anti-Christian, Marxist holiday that began to gain mass adherence within the black community in the 1980s and 1990s. Kamala’s tweet honoring the holiday, of course, was as false as all her other pander stories have been, whether she’s talking about smoking pot and listening to Tupac in college or making inane comments about Hanukkah. Kwanzaa is not a traditional African holiday.

Mr. President, it’s time to end this dark charade. We’re one week away from an enormously important moment for the next four years of our country. On Jan. 5, two runoff races in Georgia will determine which party will control the Senate — whether Joe Biden will have a rubber stamp or a much-needed check on his agenda. Unfortunately, you’re obsessed with the next day, Jan. 6, when Congress will, in a pro forma action, certify the Electoral College vote. You have tweeted that, as long as Republicans have “courage,” they can overturn the results and give you four more years in office. In other words, you’re cheering for an undemocratic coup.
