It's just absurd...

If anyone missed the point...it's trumpers rocking out to rage against the machine while waving thin blue line flags...

"Some of those that work forces
Are the same that burn crosses"

"You justify those who died
By wearing the badge
They're the chosen whites"

Dems would be smart to leave this 'not leaving' talk alone.....

Really. The talk makes him much more poweful. He has much diminished power without the talk.

71+ million people voted for Donald Trump. They didn't vote for an autocrat/dictator. They (vast majority) voted for a President. Was it a prudent vote isn't the question. They (vast majority) voted for a guy who they thought could best lead America.

Do you beleive in your heart that they (TENS of millions of people) Americans voted for Trump because they wanted a Dictator? I do not. If Trump stayed, without constitutional due process they (the majority who voted for him) would not accept that. Some would, who cares about them, not a threat..... :noclue:

That is a serious question. The most serious question we could have as Americans. You think 50% of Americans support a Dictator......? And if they didn't know already, the actions a Dictator would take? Really?

what about obama?
Twice.

Also they already got ACB.
Why would Trump/McConnell push it through if they knew it was a vital carrot to get out the vote?

They're not smart?

But....they always seem get what they want.
:bored:

Dems okay with the status quo, I guess.....

Postal worker admits fabricating allegations of ballot tampering, officials say
By Shawn Boburg and Jacob Bogage
November 10, 2020 at 5:59 p.m. EST

A Pennsylvania postal worker whose claims have been cited by top Republicans as potential evidence of widespread voting irregularities admitted to U.S. Postal Service investigators that he fabricated the allegations, according to three officials briefed on the investigation and a statement from a House congressional committee.

Richard Hopkins’s claim that a postmaster in Erie, Pa., instructed postal workers to backdate ballots mailed after Election Day was cited by Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) in a letter to the Justice Department calling for a federal investigation. Attorney General William P. Barr subsequently authorized federal prosecutors to open probes into credible allegations of voting irregularities and fraud, a reversal of long-standing Justice Department policy.

But on Monday, Hopkins, 32, told investigators from the U.S. Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General that the allegations were not true, and he signed an affidavit recanting his claims, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe an ongoing investigation. Democrats on the House Oversight Committee tweeted late Tuesday that the “whistleblower completely RECANTED.”


Hopkins did not respond to messages seeking comment.

The reversal comes as Trump has refused to concede to President-elect Joe Biden (D), citing unproven allegations about widespread voter fraud in an attempt to swing the results in his favor. Republicans held up Hopkins’s claims as among the most credible because he signed an affidavit swearing that he overheard a supervisor instructing colleagues to backdate ballots mailed after Nov. 3.

The Trump campaign provided that affidavit to *Graham, who in turn asked the Justice Department and FBI to launch an investigation.

The Trump campaign also cited reports of the allegation in a federal lawsuit filed Monday against Pennsylvania election officials that seeks to prevent them from certifying the states’ election results.

The Trump campaign, the Justice Department and Graham did not immediately respond to requests for comment Tuesday.

The Erie postmaster, Rob Weisenbach, called the allegations “100% false” in a Facebook post and said they were made “by an employee that was recently disciplined multiple times.”
“The Erie Post Office did not back date any ballots,” Weisenbach wrote.

The Postal Service inspector general’s office informed members of Congress in a briefing on Tuesday that Hopkins had recanted his allegations, according to a congressional aide. The investigators first interviewed Hopkins on Friday, the aide said.

Hopkins’s allegations, without his name, were first aired last week by Project Veritas, :eyes: an organization that uses deceptive tactics to expose what it says is bias and corruption in the mainstream media. Hopkins agreed to attach his name to the allegations late last week. He was instantly celebrated by Trump supporters.

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe on Saturday hailed Hopkins as “an American hero” on Twitter. A GoFundMe page created under Hopkins’s name had raised more than $136,000 by Tuesday evening, with donors praising him as a patriot and whistleblower.

“Your donations are going to help me in the case I am wrongfully terminated from my job or I am forced into resigning due to ostrizization [sic] by my co-workers,” the page states. “It will help me get a new start in a place I feel safe and help me with child support until I am able to get settled and get a job.”

Separately, on Monday Project Veritas announced it was offering a “$25,000 reward” for “first hand election fraud tips in Pennsylvania.” Late Tuesday, O’Keefe claimed to have recordings of agents questioning Hopkins and said that he was pressured to sign a document he did not understand.

The Postal Service said in a statement over the weekend that it had referred Hopkins’s allegations to the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Office of Inspector General.

The Postal Inspection Service declined to comment on Tuesday morning, referring questions to the Office of Inspector General. A spokeswoman for that office, Agapi Doulaveris, said it was still “looking into the matter” Tuesday afternoon and declined to elaborate.

Hopkins was escorted out of his workplace on Monday afternoon and told not to return until the investigation was completed, according to one of the officials familiar with the probe.

A page on the social networking site LinkedIn that matches Hopkins’s name and other biographical details says he served in the Marine Corps from 2007 to 2012. Hopkins subsequently held numerous jobs for short periods of time, including as a nurse’s aide and as an employee at a hydrologic fracking company in Texas, according to a Facebook profile. The Facebook page says he became a letter carrier in Erie in August 2018.
*Lindsey Graham will continue to be a sycophantic enabler regardless of how foolish he is made to look.

Trump's lawyers just dumped him.

I was surprised this firm was even representing DJT since Don McGahn is one of the partners. McGahn was involved in the Trump campaign and later became White House counsel. His relationship with Trump was fraught with tension. He left in Oct 2018. He did not leave on good terms.

Law firm Porter Wright withdraws from representing Trump in Pennsylvania case
BY MORGAN CHALFANT - 11/13/20 09:10 AM EST
...
“Plaintiffs and Porter Wright have reached a mutual agreement that Plaintiffs will be best served if Porter Wright withdraws, and current co-counsel and such other counsel as Plaintiffs may choose to engage represent Plaintiffs in this case,” states the memorandum accompanying the motion to withdraw filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

The motion does not provide an explanation for the decision. It states that Linda Kerns, another lawyer on the case, will remain on representing the Trump campaign.

The New York Times reported earlier this week that there were internal tensions at the firm, which is based in Columbus, Ohio, related to its work for the Trump campaign in Pennsylvania.

In this particular lawsuit, the Trump campaign sued Pennsylvania’s Democratic secretary of state and seven counties on Monday, alleging that the commonwealth implemented an illegal “two-tiered” system in which voters were held to different standards depending on how they cast ballots. The campaign is seeking to prevent the certification of the states’ election results until the case plays out.

Despite what I think of John Bolton, he can be funny:
https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/week-tr ... d=74218239

I don't buy the argument that Donald Trump has hypnotized Republican voters or they're not capable of accepting the truth. This is a myth that's being perpetrated that's simply not true. But it requires people to explain what happened.

The Trump campaign simply has no evidence. Their basic argument is this was a conspiracy so vast and so successful that there's no evidence of it. Now if that's true, I really want to know who the people are who pulled this off. We need to hire them at the CIA.
