LEROY DONALD

Not surprisingly, news media phonies and Trump haters have joined forces to resist the president’s effort to confirm election results. With 11,000 claims of voter fraud, (according to the RNC chair) and winning margins in key states at less than one percent, I would expect the Trump team to question the voting procedures as well as the tallies. It’s necessary in the eyes of election fairness and reasonable in the eyes of our legal process.

Would it be reasonable to simply ignore the close count, the mail-in voting controversy and concerning doubts about the voting machines? Should these concerns along with the countless claims of voter fraud simply be tossed aside and accepted for the sake of a speedy transition? Is this what the Biden party would have done had the tables been turned? Is this what American voters who cast their votes in good faith deserve?

During the Bush/Gore election of 2000, Democrat Al Gore delayed election results in Florida for a total of 36 days to validate questionable votes due to hanging chads, swinging chads, dangling chads, pregnant chads, dimpled chads, pierced chads and butterfly ballots. Although the Trump/Biden election vote count is more about voter fraud, ballot harvesting, voting machines and voting procedures, the principle remains the same. Voters and candidates expect and deserve an accurate count.

Regardless of the progressive party’s threshold of patience or need for political power any time prior to the January 20th presidential swear in, President Trump has every right to legally pursue all doubts and misgivings about voter fraud, the voting process and the vote count. I would expect him to try and stand for what’s right in an election this close or in any election that poses any doubt about integrity. And there is no need for Joe Biden to be so concerned about security briefings prior to the swear in; he’ll be told what to do.

Because of COVID19, this election process has been unlike any other in recent history. Mail-in ballots have provided an avenue for voter fraud that is rife with possibilities. Without signature verification there is no way to validate ballots, which leaves the door to voter fraud wide open.

This election should serve as an eye opener for all honest voters regarding the need for election reform. A thorough review of all voting procedures, vote counting, voting machines and mail-in voting prior to the next presidential election is vital. That review should produce voting reform standards that ensure all voters that their votes are properly received, verified and counted without concerns about voter fraud. Anything less than that is a threat to America’s democracy.

Anxiety for power within the progressive ranks is a sight to behold, but they might want to consider putting their drivel bibs on to avoid staining their shirts. Election integrity should proceed the power ego that controls their politics.

I'm sure Christie is a Rino now, or a "never trumper", or whatever it is cultists call patriotic republicans, but, he did say today: "I have been a supporter of the president's. I voted for him twice. But elections have consequences & we cannot continue to act as if something happened here that didn't happen." He says an unwillingness to present evidence "must mean the evidence doesn't exist."

Bernie Mac

Christie has always been a RINO. Like Hogan.

nuri the stupid little socialist. Absentee ballots can be verified......Mail-in ballots scam made up by your socialist leftist democrats to commit fraud to steal the election. The red Chinese death virus made it easy to justify this fraud. Funny the socialist can go to grocery stores, restaurants, gyms, bars, barber shops, doctor/medical appointments, and the list goes on forever. But, it's to dangerous to go to the polls to vote. This election was rigged and 73 million + people will never except brain-dead biden as president.

Spock Here

Enjoy that deep puddle of hate and ignorance you dwell in gore. A whiny little "snowflake" just like your leader who displays ignorance every day. You don't know what socialism is, what a mail in ballot is, and what social distancing and packed crowds mean. Sit in your corner, suck your thumb, and blame democrats for our troubles. Don't even try to explain why, if the election was "rigged", you know that 73 million people voted your way. I mean, how stupid can you be? Trump would have won Georgia if he hadn't used his fear mongering about mail in ballots....So many supporters of his didn't vote either way. Gawdalmighty, read a book.

The word is "accept"'

shinyhappypeople

The serenity prayer may be a good starting point, and will likely help with quitting a cult as well. “Please grant them the serenity (now!😛) to accept the things they cannot change, the courage to change the things they can (sorry- actual citizens votes not included), and the wisdom to know the difference” (i know...wisdom with a group who tries to ignore the peoples will and steal states electors is a stretch, but hope springs eternal) ✌🏼🤞🏼🙏🏼

Spock Here

A group that also supports voter supression by a cowardly, self-serving, unprincipled, racist, anti-democracy, pro-authoritarian monstrosity, then goes "nya nya nya you have no morals and are unAmerican." Today, they are all Runny Rudi, bless their little hearts."

Journey2goremtns1

America must reject the current results of this phoney mail-in ballot portion of the election. The socialist and communist are trying to seize power and if they are successful the American dream will be lost forever.

Bryan.the.Nuri

Wait, no mail-in ballots? So no voting for the troops and the elderly, huh? Sorry, college kid, you gotta go back home to vote.

Your points are as flimsy as they are laughable. Good thing you hide. Wouldn't want people to laugh in your face, would you?

Bernie Mac

Hey doofus, mail-in voting is not the same as absentee voting.

Bryan.the.Nuri

Hey doofus, mail-in ballots for the most part are absentee ballots by definition. Try and read sometimes, coward.

Mrea

“Doofus man”? Are you trying to widen the chasm?

beezydonald

Your comment validates a major part of the problem Mr. Nuri. You don’t even know there’s a difference between absentee votes and mail in votes. Unlike absentee votes, mail in votes do not require signature validation so the two types of voting are worlds apart.

shinyhappypeople

Actually it depends on which state you live in as to what terms are used, and its often interchangeable, so Mr. Nuri is not incorrect....

“Because voting processes are mostly left up to the states, there’s quite a bit of variation when it comes to what officials call ballots that you don’t cast in person. You could see the term mail-in ballot—or vote-by-mail ballot, or advanced ballot, or something similar—on an application for an absentee ballot, and you could hear absentee ballot used in a conversation about all-mail voting.“

Bernie Mac

If you are going to post a quote, you should give attribution. Otherwise we will assume it was said by a lying hypocritical Democrat. Like Gavin Newsom.

Spock Here

Bernie bleats for "attribution" again so he won't "assume" it's a lie. It's common knowledge, Bern. Look it up. Cultists seem to "assume" a lot, no wonder they are so easy to manipulate with ignorant lies. Better get more sleep.

Doc Samson

Stick to facts and watch as Leftist fascists devolve into smarmy stupidity and borderline incoherent insults, merely highlighting their lack of morals and unbreakable lockstep thinking...

Spock Here

"American dream", you say? Like those hundreds of cars lined up waiting for a food bank to open? Like a lame duck president playing golf while his "herd immunity" theory is let loose? Like Republican legislators yukking it up with champagne at Trump hotel after the president tried to diddle in Michigan's vote? That "dream" is all yours. Enjoy!

cuphaus

Mr. Donald really expects the President to " try and stand for what’s right?" When has he ever done that?

Bernie Mac

Look at these comments. Democrats don't give a fig about election integrity. All they care about is gaining power. By any means necessary. Look at the way Democrats govern. Authoritarian. Democrats are not good Americans. They don't have American values.

@Bernie - ""Owning the libs" at this point is stupid and dangerous, We all suffer the consequences... And you choose not to see it."

Leftist projection is never ending... [rolleyes] Notice they won't admit that there has been fraud, again despite viewable and verifiable proof. Sure, it may not impact the election in the end but, of course, it's all about "owning the cons". They are mentally unhinged.

Conservative

There has not been integrity in our elections for many years now. One person, one vote, government issued photo id required, only in-person has gone by the wayside. Too much doubt has been introduced with mail-in and absentee ballots. Early voting in person is fine. Set up polling places for our soldiers oversees. No more of this nonsense.

Spock Here

Sometimes you almost sound reasonable and a bit intelligent. Then, there is stuff like this that makes any credibility you might have disappear, and I quote: "hoochis mama spreading her legs for every cretin and popping out kids so she can get her welfare checks."

You are going farther and father off the rails, coward. Admit it, he lost.

shinyhappypeople

It must be SO ENTIRELY humiliating to watch the President that you’ve gone all-in on, the one you sold your soul to and let hijack your party- the infamous con man that you were warned about- the man you’ve defended with a religious fervor through crazy and exhausting week after week for over four years- to watch him have the most EPIC and infantile breakdown on a national scene and refuse to admit that he’s a loser who lost a winnable election because he preferred childish outbreaks and unserious tantrums to actual work and governance. To watch as his ignorant legal defenders try to pin the blame on a dead president from Venezuala (while using supporting evidence from the movie “My Cousin Vinny”)- all while fresh hair dye streaked like visible lines of deception down his lying, sweating face. Meanwhile another Trump lawyer (Sydney Powell) was berated by TUCKER CARLSON (here’s when you know you’ve got trouble...when your stooges wont stooge for you) for having NO PROOF to back up her baseless assertions of voter fraud. I feel for you all...i really do. But humiliation is the least of your worries once you’ve made a deal with the devil. Enjoy those judges (and the soon to expire tax break) while you endeavor to raise Rosemary’s baby.

Look at all these hypocritical Democrats and their bogus excuses for supporting the Democrat election fraud. Incredible! There is far more evidence that the Democrats attempted to steal this election than there ever was of Trump-Russian collusion. By a country mile. But don't ever expect the truth to interfere with Democrats spewing lies. Democrats have been engaged in election tampering ever since we freed their slaves.

Are you aware of the fact that you are deepening the divide?

Not to "deepen the divide" but Biden won GA for the third time today, And now that Trump's lawyers have figured out the difference between MI and MN, they realize....no fraud. Now that was just plain funny.

Notice that Trump's legal team is not using the f-word (fraud) in front of judges in their lawsuits. If they did so, the judge would tell them to put up or shut up.

Mr. Donald has satisfied his thirst at the Firehose of Falsehoods. Sadly he has drowned.

Jocelyn Benson, the Michigan Secretary of State, has declared: "It's clear that the voters of Michigan have made a choice. There is no legal or factual basis to challenge or disregard the very clear choice that the voters of Michigan have made. . . . We have accepted every county's certification of the vote and expect the Board of Canvassers to do the same, which is their legal duty as stated in Michigan's state law."

hagansan

All across America, the election results have been certified by the same white haired ladies, history professors, and dedicated citizens who have so commendably served this function for decades. But Trump and his harlequin sidekick Giuliani want the results thrown out, because our new monarch has declared that it should be so. Up to now true patriots, including many lifelong Republicans, have resisted this brazen move to seize power away from our 245 year tradition of democracy. One may only shudder at the possibilities. But one thing is certain; this will go down in history as an unprecedented assault against the rule of law and the democratic traditions of our nation. Leroy Donald should be ashamed of himself.

rljonesy

Lots of claims, but Giuliani and Trump have not furnished evidence to support any claim of widespread fraud, and courts continue to dismiss these unfounded claims. Just like his birther lies about Obama, Trump is simply trying to undermine Biden's legitimacy.

Spock Here

"Election integrity" has been verified by election official, poll workers, and attorneys general across the country, Leroy, But you know that. I'm sure you also know that an orderly transition can begin when the "apparent" winner is announced. Nothing needs to be certified or conceded for that to happen, You know that too. We all know that because that's the way it's always done, except 20 years ago. Meanwhile we have the tantrum in chief pouting and wanting to "own the libs" one more time by asserting his "right to win at all costs". The courts are dismissing the claims, Rudy needs new hair dye, and all of a sudden it is perfectly normal for a potus who lost to invite republican election officials to the white house, and for a senator from SC to hint about tossing legal ballots in GA. I understand .... Polling places were closed, the postal service was tampered with, legal voters were purged from the rolls, etc, and Biden still gets millions of votes more than tumpy, so, ergo, it's all dead people, what else could it be? I read yesterday that tumpy, by the way, would possibly won GA but his fear mongering about mail in ballots kept a large number of his supporters home

"Owning the libs" at this point is stupid and dangerous, We all suffer the consequences, even you Leroy. And you choose not to see it.
