Not surprising. (The rules were thrown out four years ago)
Yep. And the Democrats are the ones that tossed them and continued to stomp on them for the next 4 years. When you spend the better part of 4 years working desperately to depose a DULY elected president and abusing govt organs for your political grandstanding all because you got sour grapes about losing, YOU are the ones that are the problem.

Will Trump pardon his children and Jared? But wait, wouldn't doing so be tantamount to admitting that they committed crimes? That's an interesting development. On a side note, I wonder if Jared's daddy will get a pardon from Trump.

End of a beautiful friendship?: Arizona governor becomes latest Trump target after certifying Biden's win



He is consistent about one thing......right to the end.: Someone does something he does not like.......they become his target for verbal abuse or worse. Too thin skinned & over reactive for the job. This is the worst transition of power in US history. Resembles some Banana Republic. He does not even care about his legacy. Just handing on to power. Power in the hands of a con is potentially dangerous. But his disinformation machine keeps conning the folks .
Love him or hate him, he is entitled to go through the process available. Just because the Dems don't like it doesn't make it wrong. The Dems have done it themselves but it's ok for them apparently, but not for anyone else. Besides, time is against Trump - the Republicans brought attention about the potential for fraud before the election but didn't follow-up so that fact that they lost is all on them! They absolutely knew what would happen and it did. Failure to respond in a timely fashion did them in so no one to blame but themselves. Mind you, most of the Republican "swamp" is just as anti-Trump as the Democrats are so it's actually no surprise that they knew the potential for fraud was there but did sweet dick about it.

Having said that, because there were so many irregular (and possible illegal) happenings there needs to be an investigation into the whole counting process because if the current process isn't done away with, the corruption & fraud will continue.

The discussions, detailed by The New York Times, come as Giuliani leads last-ditch legal efforts by Trump’s campaign to reverse President-elect Joe Biden’s projected win in the Electoral College.




“Not true,” Giuliani told CNBC via a text message when asked about the Times’ report.

Which anonymous source came up with this noise?

Michael Flynn, Newly Pardoned, Calls for Trump to ‘Temporarily Suspend the Constitution’ and Impose Martial Law​

A week after receiving his pardon from President Donald Trump, former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn promoted a call for the president to “temporarily suspend the Constitution” and put the country under martial law.

On Tuesday, weeks after the election Trump lost, Flynn shared a press release from the right-wing We the People Convention imploring Trump to implement martial law. The statement drew a connection to what Abraham Lincoln did with his presidential authority during the Civil War.

“Then, as now, a President with courage and determination was needed to preserve the Union,” the statement says. “Today, the current threat to our United States by the international and domestic socialist/communist left is much more serious than anything Lincoln or our nation has faced in its history – including the civil war.”


The statement goes on to rail against Antifa, Black Lives Matter, “socialists,” the “corrupt media,” and Big Tech, blaming them all for an “attempted stealing” of the election.


There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud that would prove a stolen election, and much of the evidence collected by Trump’s legal team has been thrown out of court.


The statement culminates in a call for Trump to engage in “a limited form of martial law” before the country supposedly plunges into corruption and a new civil war.

More insanity... https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/poli...nstitution-and-impose-martial-law/ar-BB1bzawC

If there is a civil war, it will be started by Trump's right wing followers.

Trump threatens to veto defense bill over social media protections


WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is threatening to veto a defense policy bill unless it ends protections for internet companies that shield them from being held liable for material posted by their users.

On Twitter Tuesday night, Trump took aim at Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, which protects companies that can host trillions of messages from being sued into oblivion by anyone who feels wronged by something someone else has posted — whether their complaint is legitimate or not.

Trump called Section 230 “a serious threat to our National Security & Election Integrity,” adding, “Therefore, if the very dangerous & unfair Section 230 is not completely terminated as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), I will be forced to unequivocally VETO the Bill.”

Trump has been waging war against social media companies for months, claiming they are biased against conservative voices.

In October he signed an executive order directing executive branch agencies to ask independent rule-making agencies, including the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Trade Commission, to study whether they can place new regulations on the companies.

Since losing the presidential election, Trump has flooded social media with unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud. Twitter has tagged many such Trump tweets with the advisory, “This claim about election fraud is disputed.”........More

Almost sounds like Trump is still the POTUS
Well he is.........until January 20th.

A pardon for what crime?
Two "crimes " actually. The first one was "betraying" the Democrats. You see, Trump's father used to run in Democrat circles and the Democrats figured Trump would run under their banner. The second "crime" was winning an election the Democrats thought they had successfully rigged. What's funny though is listening to the tightly spun, highly programmed leftards screaming about Trump's crimes but when pressed for examples of his alleged crimes, they offer none. They cry about preserving democracy but didn't give two shits when the Democrats f*cked Sanders over in favour of Hitlery during the 2016 primaries. I have never seen a bigger bunch of f*cking hypocritical, whiny sucky cry-babies in my life than leftards.

"REPORTEDLY" being the key word here. But of course you're more than happy to put your total faith in an industry that's been lying to you for, well, for decades now, and not just in the US.

Yeah, reportedly, what's the problem? News outlets also say that Trump will reportedly file lawsuits, reportedly run again in 2024, do you have a problem with that reporting? Am I more than happy to put my total faith in an industry that's been lying to me? Based on what?
