Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Yes, Yes, Yes!!!
Quote:
The Supreme Court on Friday rejected a widely panned bid by Texas to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's election win, delivering a devastating blow to President Trump's long-shot legal campaign.

The Texas lawsuit had been backed by Trump, as well as 18 GOP state attorneys general and 126 House Republicans.

Edit; The decision brings an abrupt, unceremonious end to Trump’s legal effort to essentially scrap the democratic process in order to preserve his presidency, a six-week-long crusade in which he has spread false conspiracies about voter fraud to drive up distrust of the U.S. election system.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Now the electoral college vote on Tuesday the 15th and the counting on Wednesday 6 January. Then the inauguration on the 20th.

Only then will it be over. Just in time to start it all again.

Good.

Shocking still that such a "case" was supported by 19 state AGs and the majority of the House GOP. Personality cult and brainwashed people.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

This is an interesting proposal. Congressman from NJ suggests the 126 members supporting this nonsense be excluded from the next Congress. I‘d like to see it, actually.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

What is even more mind-boggling is that 17 of the congresscritters who signed on to the Texas AG's madness are from the states whose election results the suit was asking to invalidate.

Yep these 17 were challenging the legitimacy of their own elections.

It's been said many times in this, and other, threads - but Trump is not the root of the problem, Trumpism is . Trumpism has well and truly taken hold. Long after 21 Jan 2021 we will still have to deal with 126 congressmen and women (IIRC a handful of whom are set to move to the Senate) and 17 state AGs who are actively refuting our constitution and democracy itself. And the 70-some million voters who think this is all okey-dokey.

Trump's legacy: America will never be the same again; total disrespect for democracy and the law.

I'm highly saddened by US Christians who support Trump simply because he's pro-life and pro-Israel and has encouraged legislation that reflects these causes. I personally would ban the phrase "In God we Trust" on all coins and take out the word "God" in all patriotic songs.

And I was just thinking a bit ago... "I wonder if Trump is tweeting about how much he hates the Supreme Court yet and trying to accuse THEM of being in the wrong."

He's so pathetically predictable so much of the time.

Although Trump was tweeting about the Supreme Court, that seems like a good, brief summary of Trump's 4 years: "No Wisdom, No Courage!" It takes wisdom to listen to the perspectives of others. It takes courage to change one's course.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Trump unleashes an army of sore losers

GOP candidates for House, legislative and gubernatorial races in more than half a dozen states are claiming voter fraud and still refusing to acknowledge defeat.

For example, Loren Culp, the unsuccessful Republican nominee for governor in Washington state, where he lost by more than 13 percentage points on Nov. 3.
Like Donald Trump, Culp insists he’s the victim of a rigged election.

In Maryland, a congressional candidate beaten by more than 40 percentage points is still complaining about “irregularities” in her election.
It is quite farcical...

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

I guess made-up claims of election fraud are the new alternative to admitting defeat, because that's something that some people are clearly incapable of. I mean, who needs democracy when instead we can just allow whichever candidates scream "Election fraud!" the loudest to win?

52 groans since they joined 46 days ago, in other words 1.1 groan per day. Still a bit behind Tom, who's been a member for 3652 days and has given 9887 groans (a whopping 2.7 gpd). On the other hand, in the "angry and petty" arena BtD seems to lead the community by a long distance. Here comes the groan.
