Greetings!

Excellent points, Chris! I agree. So much suspicious activity going on, and as you mentioned, the whole enthusiasm level that is different for Trump compared to Biden. The idea that Biden got more votes than Obama? Yeah, I'm not buying it either. Every election I have lived through, campaign enthusiasm has always been a crucial element to any competitive campaign, and essential to any electoral victory, especially in concerns to a national election.

The enthusiasm for President Trump is sky fucking high.

The enthusiasm for Biden is lukewarm and tepid. Even Democrats have expressed an ambivalence about voting for Biden.

There's just no way that Biden won this election.

Semper Fidelis,

SHARK

Well, the only thing that can reveal this is an investigation, so we will see. Sorry to say, but I definitely think it is possible they really won, despite sleepy Joe, for this reason: the media were MASSIVELY on the Democratic side. Among my leftist friends I saw a flurry of memes like "vote as if your life depends on it, because it does". And I think they did. On top of that, Trump does have that tendency rub people the wrong way. All I am saying is that, sure, recount and investigate and do all that. But I don't think that it's impossible that the Dems won.
Oh I think Biden could have won, I knew he could and likely would win as soon as mail in ballots were used en masse.

I don't think anything good comes from this though. At the very least I'm pretty sure Trump lost the popular vote, and I think there is good reason to think that many Americans don't particularly like Trump's brash style as a president even if they don't like the far left either. If the Republicans lost the electorate college as well, well then they lost. I don't think his taxes being made public helped either. The effect of John Voight speaking of the devil and such would be somewhat similar to broadcasting AOC howling about socialism and toxic masculinity and hope that it will somehow help mend the wounds.
Actually, if the vote-weighting algorithm numbers cited by Sidney and attested to in sworn witness and whistleblower affidavits (i.e. evidence as the courts define evidence) are correct (i.e. that the machines counted each Biden vote as 1.25 votes), then Biden's actual vote total is somewhere in the neighborhood of 62 million or a bit less than Hillary's 2016 total.

THAT number actually makes sense to me as he campaigned less than Hillary and there was zero enthusiasm for the man and 62 million seems about right for a "vote Dem out of habit" level of enthusiasm candidate.

And frankly, the idea that Joe Biden would receive 120% of the votes Obama received in 2008 (and more than anyone in history save for Donald Trump) is ludicrous. Rather, all of the evidence adds up to MASSIVE fraud that was so sloppy (ex. multiple counties where three times the number of people voted as were actually registered... sudden batches of hundreds of thousands of ballots for Biden and Biden alone with nothing down ballot and none corresponding for President Trump... some vote totals in Virginia including fractional values because they forgot to round off... not having time to fill in the down ballot votes resulting in Republicans actually making massive gains in down ballot races... etc.) because the machine algorithms couldn't overcome President Trump's legitimate vote count.

As to "many don't like Trump"... yeah, probably 62+ million of them. But that doesn't negate that enough people came out every day to President Trump's rallies; a process that generally took the better part of an entire day due to crowd size and security; in 10-50+ thousands each in 3-5 locations each day all to chant "We Love You!" towards President Trump.

Similarly... if the Dems really had the popular vote, if there really was no fraud... they wouldn't need to flag and censor anyone even suggesting their might be problems. If their win was legit they'd have no problems proving what the real numbers were. Instead they gaslight, bully and try to do everything possible to keep the actual numbers from being looked at and demand their accounting just be taken on faith.

At this point, based on polling, more than HALF the country believes the election was stolen by the Democrats and every instance where they fight to prevent a real investigation just makes them look more and more guilty to more and more people.

Bush v. Gore wasn't decided until December 12th (three weeks from now) and this situation is VERY fluid. I wouldn't count any chickens one way or the other just yet.

So that skewed 1.25 Biden vote claim is the “kraken” that they are supposed to release soon?

The evidence will be brought into court.  We cannot know about it till court date unless we want the evidence to be tampered with.

Yesterday, Sidney Powell lays out her opening statement.
Today, the Supreme Court is on the move in the key fraud states.
Funny how that works.

The more the media screams, the more faith I gain in Trump's victory.

If Biden had won with the margins they claim, there would be no panic around recounts and audits. But not only are we seeing outright panic, we're seeing the media (and their Twatter surrogates) becoming unhinged. Screaming at VP Pence today in his press conference like total loons was fun to watch because it was so telling.

THEY KNOW...and they can't stop the Trump Train.

What's especially enjoyable about the media panic is their realization that like the fraud, they doubled down too hard and allowed their bias to become too obvious so that even the sleepers are slowly opening their eyes wondering what's happening.

Funny how people see what they want to see.

Anyone see Tucker Carlson's bit about Sidney Powell? He contacted her several times to present proof and she didn't, but threw a tantrum and told him to leave her alone.

People are not mad at Trump because they're scared he's got a case - everyone knows he doesn't. They're mad because he's fucking everyone by stalling the transition of power, and the the threat that he's going to try to stay in office unlawfully. Only his weak-brained drones still believe that he won the election, and they'll lap up anything he says. It is rather pathetic, like the idiots running the asylum.

Meanwhile, the liberal media keeps focusing on Trump's ongoing tantrum, ignoring that Biden is creating a centrist warhawk administration and screwing progressives, and thereby the American people. Trump's far worse, but fuck Biden too.

Yes, and Tucker is wrong. No good attorney would reveal their evidence to news media before it is presented in court. People see what they want to see indeed.

Is it really that hard to believe that a small proportion of Republicans (~5%) looked at Donald Trump.
Looked at his personality.
Looked at what his administration has done in the last four years..
Looked how he's treated people while they're in his administration and after they've left.
Looked at how his administration has handled Covid-19.
Looked at everything that's happened over the last 4 years of Donald J. Trump being President of the United States of America.

And getting into the voting booth or filling out their absentee ballot and going "I don't want to give him four more years".

Then voting Biden or Jorgenson for President and Republican down the rest of the ticket?

So if Trump "lawyers up," it's good, but if those he's accusing of wrongdoing "lawyers up," it's bad? Isn't this a typical response when in a legal fight?

Or Kanye? He wasn't on the ballot in my state, but I had hopes for the guy.

Does that mean that he is giving AOC and her cronies the cold shoulder? If so, then so far so good.

I made no statement about good or bad, particularly about Trump lawyering up, you are assuming an awful lot. The timing is telling, considering it was just a fact finding hearing, not a criminal indictment (nor could it be in and of itself). Everyone is entitled to legal counsel at a trial, but a hearing is a much looser thing. Either way, lawyer up or not, when you have worked with the CIA to subvert other countries elections, you are a roach.
