The 2020 Presidential Election / It's Over!

Over the past several weeks, Donald Trump and his legal minions have filed case after case after case stating that the 2020 Presidential Election was rigged.  They have filed dozens of lawsuits with courts at multiple levels including the Supreme Court with all of them being denied, dismissed, withdrawn or settled due to no facts being presented to back up their claims.  Not one court has found a single strand of evidence backing this idiotic claim.  Nor have any states found voter fraud to an extent that it would change the results of the election.  Of course in every election there are individual cases of fraud, but none to the scale that Trump and his minions say happened.  This is a fact and it cannot be changed!  Here is a link to NBC News that details these lawsuits and what the results were.    

What bothers me the most is the notion that our elections are under attack from within our own government.  Some of our Congressional people and the President himself are trying to attack the will of the people and Democracy itself.  Our country was founded on holding fair elections where the citizens vote to elect government officials and not anyone else.  The Founding Fathers put this in place so we would not have a king or a dictator leading the nation.  They put it in place to stop unscrupulous people like Donald Trump!  This is now under attack and it must be stopped.

The latest ploy by Trump and his Republican cohorts is to reject the certified results of the Electoral College when it comes up to a vote in a joint session on January 6th.  A group of Senators led by Ted Cruz (go figure) plan on voting to reject the results in certain states such as Georgia and Pennsylvania.  "We intend to vote on January 6 to reject the electors from disputed states as not 'regularly given' and 'lawfully certified' (the statutory requisite), unless and until that emergency 10-day audit is completed," the group said in a statement on Saturday.  Cruz is working with Senators Ron Johnson, James Lankford, Steve Daines, John Kennedy, Marsha Blackburn, and Mike Braun, and Senators-elect Cynthia Lummis, Roger Marshall, Bill Hagerty, and Tommy Tuberville. Only one of these senators, Johnson of Wisconsin, represents a state won by Mr. Biden.  If one of these nitwits are in your home state, remember their names when you go out to vote next election.  These people want to take your vote and throw it right in the garbage.

Also, Republican Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri will also object to the certified Electoral College results.  "I cannot vote to certify the electoral college results on January 6 without raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws. And I cannot vote to certify without pointing out the unprecedented effort of mega corporations, including Facebook and Twitter, to interfere in this election, in support of Joe Biden," the Missouri Republican said in a statement. "At the very least, Congress should investigate allegations of voter fraud and adopt measures to secure the integrity of our elections. But Congress has so far failed to act."

So what is the Bottom Line here?  It's the fact that Joe Biden won the election and Trump lost.  The Republicans lost the White House and they are crying foul.  Four years ago I heard from countless Trumpanzee's that I had sour grapes over Hillary Clinton losing the election.  Now who has sour grapes? Yep, you Trump supporters do.  Face the facts, Trump lost the election.  Just sit back and think about this;  Do you know how difficult it would be to actually rig a national election?  It would be logistically impossible. Also, why on earth would Democrats rig the election but fail to make sure that the Senate and House become Democrat as well?  Can voters be swayed by misinformation being transmitted over social media.  Sure it can.  Trump and the Russians did it in 2016.  This is another fact that cannot be dismissed.  The Bottom Line here is Joe Biden won the election and there is nothing anyone, including member of Congress, can do about it.  Instead of wasting everyone's time in Congress with this benign objection, how about they all get together to get the suffering Americans some stimulus relief.
