^ Trump says enough hateful and ridiculous things that there is absolutely no need or benefit to making up fictions. 

I do not know whether this particular statement about the cemetery was made or not, but Trump has said similar in the past. For what purpose would someone make this up?

OPINION:  Since February/March, the nat'l nutwork media has slammed Trump as some kind of dumkoff who doesn't understand how serious C0VlD-19 is.

But now, Bob Woodward comes out with an interview from early February in which Trump says the C-19 has a 5% moratlity rate and he is trying to avoid inducing panic.

Now, the shameless nutworks whinie: he lied to US.

l think they -the nutworks- are pathetic scum.

One thing I agree with Trump on is the ridiculousness of this media frenzy over Covid. They’re even beginning to infringe on our civil rights by mandating masks in public places.

The account is under the name of Trump Hotel Management, which is in trust, by law.

Experienced attorney says this is a good idea for doing business in China.

Next they're going to mandate wearing shirts and shoes in public! So oppressive! Can you believe this is all being done by our elected representatives?

The Senate has confirmed Judge Barrett as the 115th member of SCOTUS.

https://www.npr.org/2020/10/26/927640619/senate-confirms-amy-coney-barrettt-to-the-supreme-court 

Two Republicans voted a "no." Sen. Lisa Murkowski(Alaska) who after the vote spoke well of Barrett.

The other, Susan Collins (Maine), who is in difficult re-election race, faces a strong challenge in a complicated "ranked voting" election.

[note: l read an editorial quip in Ms Magazine that "just appointing a woman" is not good enough.]

The Washington Post is reporting that the Trump Campaign will not use this during this last week before election.

The concern must now be that he does something really stupid in the few months he has left in the White House.

I pointed out during the 2016 elections how much his debates with Clinton focused on Iran, and while he has been in power there has been an extraordinary amount of anti-Iran effort.

The people promoting an anti-Iran agenda in his administration likely realise that the opportunity he offers will only last a few more months ...

Since the three major social medias have "fact checking" censorship, the most downloaded app is Parler.

No censorship and heavily "conservative".

1. Trump did much better in the election than the polls predicted. Likely due to attraction to his message and/or rejection of cultural virtue signaling and confused messaging by Democrats. He won more total votes overall than last time, and improved in lots of voter groups.

2. If the coronavirus pandemic had not happened, or he handled it more seriously, he would have likely won. Unlike other issues where he can forcibly push a public relations narrative, a public health emergency is literally life and death, and requires competent, calm leadership ability, which he did not have. Numbers of dead couldn’t lie, and he couldn’t deflect from it, no matter how much he tried.

3. Trump is a show man and entertainer, who appealed to certain segments of people who wanted what he was selling.   He has to be one of greatest con artists of all time, essentially conning and trolling his way into the presidency, only to be undermined by smaller inept con artists and opportunists in his inner circle. In terms of actual governing, he was extremely incompetent and amateurish, relying on corrupt advisors who pushed their ideological/personal agendas at the expense of his populist instincts and promises, all while they fed his ego and kissed his feet. Rampant staff turnover and leaks showed internal instability. With his defeat, the opportunists will abandon him, leaving only the true believers left. How influential they will be remains to be seen.

4. Even with all this, Biden barely pulled off a victory when it should have been a landslide win. That says a lot about the Democratic Party.

l saw a post that says the person alleging ballot corruption in Pennsylvania "has recounted".

He admitted he was paid $130 000 to make his claim. 

Fool. He shouldn't have settled for less than enough to retire in some other country that doesn't extradite.

Looks a bit ominous doesn't it?

Anthony Tata – a retired army brigadier general, novelist and Fox News commentator who called Barack Obama a “terrorist leader” – has taken control of the Pentagon’s policy department, following the resignation of the acting undersecretary of defence for policy, James Anderson.

Tata had been unable to win Senate confirmation after old tweets surfaced in which he expressed virulent Islamophobic views.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/nov/11/downright-dangerous-democrat-alarm-as-trump-stacks-pentagon-with-loyalists

The rest of the article deals with other appointments of people better known for their loyalty than professionalism. The hope is that those who remain are against using the military for domestic purposes.

But there's no mention of the possibility of a foreign adventure.

Quote

“If this is the beginning of a trend – the president either firing or forcing out national security professionals in order to replace them with people perceived as more loyal to him – then the next 70 days will be precarious at best and downright dangerous at worst.”

The Constitution has rules for dealing with a president who can not longer do his job, but unfortunately the vice president is spineless. Who is the third in charge and do they have a spine?

^^^^ Clinton in 1992 LOST the popular vote, only having 43% of it; but won in the Electorial College.

The Electoral College is supposed to meet on December 14, 2020. However, all recounts and court contests over presidential results must be completed by the deadline of December 08, 2020.

https://www.ncsl.org/research/elections-and-campaigns/the-electoral-college.aspx

Remember that Joe Biden is the president-elect but he is not yet the elected president. The Electoral College will decide President Trump's fate.

The Electoral College

Only sixteen states legally require their electors to vote as determined by the popular vote.

So in the other 34, what if . . .

"l am so disgusted with Trump's behavior l will cast my vote for Baden."

.               -or-                            .

"Trump is correct. How can he have such wide margins in adjacent states, but 'lose' the popular vote in my state by less than 20k votes? So l will vote for Trump instead of Baden."

The Speaker when there is no Prez or V.P.

Ain't that a scary thought: Nanny Pelousy in the Oval Office.

I don't like or trust Pelosi, but I think taking over the remaining days of the presidency to ensure transition would be the correct course of action for her if Pence refuses.

@hasanhh what do you think should be done, then? Just wait it out and hope for the best? If we can go two months without leadership, why do we even need a president? 

l think the key is in the authenticity of every vote.

So, each of the four narrow difference states should form election support committees.

One section to numerically check every vote by mail against the records the printers have. Postmarks included. 

A second section is to use pulp-and-paper technology to develop techniques to rapidly determine if a ballot is suspect (like a litmus test) and then confirm by chemical analysis.

A third section to look for means that can be used to "pad: the votes.

Such as how many ballots are 'the same' voting pattern. Such as number of straight-party votes; how many are 'Biden votes' and then straight Republican.

Discarded ballots should be included in the analysis.

By doing something like this, then the final vote tallies will not be so subject to speculation and suspicion.
