Two weeks left until sanity returns

“Two weeks” has been one of the themes of T****’s term in office. Taxes, wiretapping, infrastructure, the Paris Accords, ISIS, the new healthcare plan, minimum wage plan, COVID-19 vaccines… and ‘proof of widespread election fraud’; all of these things have been declared as coming “within two weeks”.

On 08Dec2020 the “Deadline of Resolving Election Disputes” takes place. All state recounts and court contests over the US presidential election results must be completed by this date. A few days later, on 14Dec2020, electors in each state will meet and cast their ballots for president and vice president. That date is just two weeks away.

About two weeks after that comes the deadline for receipt of ballots, on 23Dec2020, when ballots from all states must have been received by the president of the Senate.

About two weeks after that, on 06Jan2021, the US Congress will meet in joint session to count the electoral votes.

About two weeks after that, on 20Jan2021, is Inauguration Day, when the candidate with the most votes from the Electoral College becomes the President of the United States of America.

Thankfully, the chaos will finally be over… in just two weeks.

    No such thing. Whoever wins, the other side will believe they have been cheated. Not good for the country at all. By the way, there is a Michigan hearing on as we speak.
    Many witnesses coming forward. Here is one:

      There’s only one ‘side’ who will believe they have been ‘cheated’: and that would appear to be the side you’re on. The sane side will believe that they have been vindicated.

      ‘Michigan hearing’? Are you talking about the farce in the Marriott Hotel masquerading as a ‘hearing’? If you believe that that ‘hearing’ has any standing, you’re even more deluded than I thought you were.

      ‘Here is one’? Something’s missing… which is very fitting, since none of the ‘overwhelming evidence’ that Trump and his cronies have been shouting about for weeks has amounted to anything.

        You are counting your chickens before they are hatched.
        As for discontent, if Trump prevails, is there any reason why the usual suspects who were burning and looting this summer would not be back?
        If I give you a link showing that our elections are badly in need of fixing (in the good sense) maybe you’ll watch John Oliver saying the same?

        [edit by pendantry]
        Fact check: the embedded video was uploaded 03Nov2019. Christopher Krebs, head of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (until he was fired by Donald T**** in November 2020) declared the [2020] election to be ‘the most secure in US history’ saying there was no evidence it was ‘compromised’ in any way.

          Listen to me: T**** cannot prevail. He is deluded. And so are you, if you believe his bullshit. You talk about ‘proof’. I would like to see proof that the ‘burning and looting’ to which you refer was actually perpetrated by the people you accuse of doing it, and not the white supremacist nutcases who are well-known for fomenting disturbances. It only takes a small number of such antisocial people to make a peaceful protest appear to be a riot. You clearly do not appreciate that.

          And as of today, Mr. Barr has announced that the Justice Dept. & the FBI have found NO CREDIBLE EVIDENCE of any significant vote fraud.

          i think we can expect Trump firing Barr via Tweet sometime before breakfast tomorrow.

            I know. And the demonstrators last summer were “mostly peaceful.”

            Aint it amazing? I remember the days when the left was the rebels against the establishment. Now it’s falling over themselves to assure us the establishment it the paragon of truth.

          Yes, it’s from last year. It’s not like I hid that fact. And exactly what has changed since Oliver’s cautionary words? Hm? Dominion Cheatware and its relatives are now all over the planet. Maybe at an election near you, soon. Shouldn’t you be paying attention? (Btw, it was Dubya who first assured us these systems are just fine and dandy. Yeah, excuse me for being skeptical.)

            ‘Cheatware’? Where is the evidence that it doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do? I’ve seen absolutely none so far. About forty court cases have been presented in the US so far — only some of which relate to these computer systems. And all but one of them have been found to be groundless. You speak as though you have knowledge everyone else lacks. Please, share it. Enquiring minds want to know.

            Listen to John Oliver. Then tell me what has changed for the better since then. The system was screwy when Bush put it in, when Oliver criticized it, and it is still screwy today. We should be in this together.

            T**** ‘oversaw’ (if you can call it that, all he does is tweet, play golf, and deny responsibility) an investigation of the US electoral system. He’s had four years to find anything wrong, and has found nothing. If it’s ‘screwy today,’ as you believe, the only evidence of it is that put forward by non-credible witnesses, as shown by 39 failed court cases and displayed in laughable sham ‘hearings’ held in a hotel lobby.

            Yes, listen to John Oliver: in that clip I offered you before (repeated below) he predicted exactly what has come to pass. T**** is a conman. He has played you for a fool.

            And I have had enough of this insane back-and-forth. I’m putting you into moderation until you come to your senses.
