Once again, it appears that the leading elected Republican office holders are choosing party over country. Instead of recognizing Joe Biden as winner of the national election by more than 4 million votes and well over the 270 required for the electoral college, President Trump and his Republican allies are crying fraud with zero evidence.

Our election system has worked in the past and there’s no reason to believe it did not work this time; everyday citizen Republicans as well as their senators and congressmen need to stop kowtowing to Donald Trump and his ego and maniacal refusal to admit defeat, before permanent damage is done to our democracy.

Show some sense. Show some decency. Show some concern and love for your country.

It is much more important than that R or D on your voter registration card.

Republicans or Americans? Word is now that Trump will likely delay vaccine distribution, among other things, if Biden becomes president. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-officials-say-the-presidents-refusal-to-admit-defeat-to-biden-could-slow-down-a-vaccine-rollout-according-to-report/ar-BB1aWxdy?ocid=ientp

Hey Steve...you mean like the Dems did for the past 5 years ..get real

Hayduke2

Get real- good advice jersey, you ought to take it.

NewMarketParent

@Hayduke2

I guess you know better than to expect any sort of consistency from folks like jerseygrl.

Hayduke2

Jersey is the ultimate troll - loves to do drive by commenting with outrageous claims and never defend. In that regard, she is consistent but that really isn't much of a compliment.

Greg F

Let’s see joisycow, who controlled the senate and blocked everything for 8 years of Obama, then in keeping that control not only blocked dems but could even get anything done themselves. We still haven’t heard a word on help for hurricane and fire victims. Your part is too busy with stupid walls and hate mongering.

phydeaux994

REPUBLICANS!!! Look at Donald John Trump’s America!! And it’s getting WORSE by the day. And Donald John Trump is doing NOTHING to help. Republicans are doing NOTHING to help. 40% of Americans are doing NOTHING to help. When is enough ENOUGH bosco and DM and JerryR and RRR(RadicalRightRepublicans)/BTT(BullyTagTeam). WHEN IS ENOUGH ENOUGH??? 70 days from now?? When does PATRIOTISM overcome your inability to admit you are WRONG??

Just wanted to follow up to anyone who thinks any of these fraud cases are going anywhere and that you are not being hit with one final grift, Wikipedia has a dedicated page with all of the ongoing cases and results.

Remember way back when, from 2009 thru 2016, the cries of the “Patriots”, the “Super Patriots”, the Flag Wavers who were saving America from Barack Hussein Obama who was trying to give America to the “Communists”? Proud Americans, fighting for Freedom, fighting for AMERICA!! They called themselves “REPUBLICANS”! LOOK AT THEM NOW!! “Patriots NOT”. Fighting for Donald John Trump, who is TWEETING LIES while America is FIGHTING FOR LIVES!!

thebusinesslitigators.com: "Libel is a defamatory statement that is written. Slander is a defamatory statement that is oral." Seems almost quaint of me to care about the possible distinction, doesn't it, but in another time, in this.very.place, it mattered, and was actionable.

Biden should be given the same respect as was given our current president, no more no less !!

Greg F

You have to earn respect. Biden did that for over 40 years as a civil servant. Trump hasn’t done anything except act like a horse’s ass, filled with hate, greed and self serving. He earned nothing. He gets nothing. He still is acting like the toddler at the checkout screaming for the candy he wants...and Senator-Mommy McConnell keeps dangling there idea of his entitlement in front of him. It’s over, quite clearly...even Fox knows it.

pdl603

Yeah, he deserves as much respect as China and the Ukraine can buy, right?

NewMarketParent

@pdl603

You mean the Ukraine that 45 tried to publicly strong-arm in producing dirt on his political rival and was impeached for?

Greg F

You realize piddlestresm that Russia was asked by trump for election fraud help...as was China. Who owes money to Putin? Trump.

threecents

Pdl, You are still falling for Trump's misdirection plays - accusing his opponents of what he is obviously guilty of. How transparent does it need to be before you finally see through it?

sevenstones1000

Well said Greg F.

Trump gets as much respect as Stormy gave him.

Greg F

He bought that “respect” along with her other services.

Tanstaafl

My children say "treason" is no longer a word. McConnell and all the Koch-bought pols have pretty much destroyed American Democracy. And there is nothing we can do to stop the damages, much less restore America.

Hayduke2

Tell me Micky, when did Obama meet with the president elect? Did he withold GSA funds? Did he tell heads of agencies not to cooperate with Trump? Did he call for the justice department to investigate IMAGINED voter fraud? Did Obama set up a political PAC to collect money for future legal issues? Wait, the answer is NO. You obviously don't know the meaning of respect.

NewMarketParent

@Hayduke2

Micky is obviously eating a steady diet of the grievance news network.

Hayduke2

NMP - he will never admit or aknowledge that. Ego is too fragile.

NewMarketParent

@Hayduke2

Oh I know.

That's fine. I will continue to point out the hypocrisy and be just as ridiculous to them as they are to the rest of the world. I hope they like this mirror I am putting in front of them.

olefool

You wanna be respected... you gotta be respectful..... Trump and the GOP failed....

awteam2000

Micky, are you suggesting Trump should provide the same peaceful transition of power that Obama provided him? After Trump defeated Hillary?

You think Trump should provide the same protocols as past presidents? Like - Inviting Biden to White House the day after the election [too late]. Maybe the organized transition of governance, how about funded - from GSA, [not happening]. Security clearances? Access to most vital security briefing? Won’t do. Trump is more focused on Fox News then Covid-19.

Face it Trump is a “sore loser“. We used to describe losers like him with a word starting with “P” and ending with a “y”.

Trump only continues to ‘spit up his animal cookies‘ , ‘have temper tantrum‘s’, poop in his diaper’ ( and it stinks). You may like the smell but nobody else does.

Trump is irresponsibleness just reinforces why he lost. Only concerned with personal gains over the country’s best interest. Now more than 5 million votes against him and 79 electoral votes.

Let’s move on.

Micky, Trump earned every bit of disrespect he got. He did not get it just for winning an election. Wake up.

pdl603

Who are you Rip Van Winkle? Were you saying country before party between 2016 and 2020? How about we address the significant amount of widespread irregularities in democrat run urban centers first? The American people deserve to know the election was entirely aboveboard before we jump to conclusions about who the president elect is or is not.

Greg F

Whatevs piddle...the vast majority feel this, and voting or acting country is what trump has never done. He has done serious damage to the nation and was aided by his associates, many who have been convicted, in doing it...along with seriously immoral senate members that starts with McConnel.

MRS M

piddlestream........what the "American people deserve" is a smooth transition of power for the new president of the US.. Get off the teat of FoxStateTV, and give up the embarassing foolishness you continue to spew.Or go back to Facebook where your delusions and "alternate facts" are truly appreciated with likeminded awholes who believe this shameful conduct by the POS_POTUS is anything more than the dysfunction of an aberrant and malignant president. When FoxState TV shuts down Kayleigh McEnemy's lies about election fraud...you know your arguments about "widespread fraud" are bogus....just as the numerous courts hearing Trump's cases so far have proven.

olefool

pd: It's over, your side lost, chew it any way you want but facts are facts, your side lost... In fact you'e in weak company according to this poll... The Reuters/Ipsos national opinion survey, which ran from Saturday afternoon to Tuesday, found that 79% of U.S. adults believe Biden won the White House. Another 13% said the election has not yet been decided, 3% said Trump won and 5% said they do not know. https://www.usnews.com/news/top-news/articles/2020-11-10/nearly-80-of-americans-say-biden-won-white-house-ignoring-trumps-refusal-to-concede-reuters-ipsos-poll

Pdl, In a country where millions believe in QAnon, the baseless conspiracy theories about irregularities will never end. That is all Trump has now: baseless conspiracy theories and people like you to support them.

NewMarketParent

@PDL603

People are saying country over party because it used to be assumed that Republicans believed that and now no one is sure about that anymore.

niceund

It astonishes me how Democrats are saying Republicans are crying fraud with no evidence. Brings back memories of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. Democrats almost ruined his reputation based on no evidence. Also, the Russian hoax, no evidence. Democrats have cried, blamed, rioted, looted, lied and attacked for 4 years because they could not accept the results of the 2016 election. At least give the current sitting president a few weeks to question results. You will probably still get your poster boy puppet. Unfortunately, we are all going to suffer for this mistake in judgment.

Greg F

Even republicans and Fox News say no fraud. Get your ears cleaned.

MRS M

Take a look at the court decisions so far in these cases brought by Trump's bootlikkers...........and get back to us, niceund.

threecents

I don't so much mind Trump not conceding yet. What I mind is his claim that election fraud is the only way Biden won. I also mind that the Secretary of State said that Trump won re-election, so there is no need to provide Biden with classified information that would normally be given to a president elect.

NewMarketParent

I do mind this administration holding up transition because they don't like the results of an election.

The F your feelings crowd has so many feelings about losing.

olefool

Nice: You can flagellate your ego all you want with those lies and distortions but the plain facts are that YOU'RE SIDE LOST...

public-redux

It sounds as if you are agreeing that there is no evidence of vote fraud.

NewMarketParent

@niceund

What reality do you live in?

They brought up a woman who was sexually assaulted by him (Christine Blasey Ford) and he cried like a baby.

Additionally, Flynn, a retired general plead guilty in a court of law about lying to investigators about his meetings specifically with the Russians.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/mike-flynn-timeline-his-rise-fall-russia-call-n720671

Live in your revisionist history bubble all you want. No one will forget your complicity. You can rationalize your horribleness all you want.

MRS M

Not that niceund is worth 2 minutes of time to attempt tp get through the delusional fog, but we should all be reminded that scmbg Mitch McConnell quickly shut down (hurry, hurry hurry!) bringing in additional witnesses supporting Christine Blasey Ford, allowing good'ol'boy and beer drinking buddies of Kavanaugh to go uninterviewed by the court or investigators, as they holed up in Bethany Beach in hiding. Niceund and piddlestream and the others posting here.... being to dense to understand what has happened here in America...........women hated Trump, what he and his enablers stand for and protect, and that is why Biden has won.

Hayduke2

There you go again Mrs M, pointing out the real factual information about what happened.

NewMarketParent

@Mrs M

That is one of about 7 million reasons.

Dwasserba

[thumbup]NMP I really enjoyed this post. Dr. Ford was so authentically vulnerable it freaked Kavenaugh out. In the end, nobody cared, he got the light, she retreated into shadow, but I still like this post.

NewMarketParent

@Dwasserba

I watched as she sat there and retold her story. I sat through her pain at having to bare herself in front of a bunch of R's who looked right past her humanity. I realized the shared feeling of having horrific things happen to you and people trying to convince you either that they didn't happen or that you are overreacting. That is the gaslighting that R's are doing now that they have lost.

We pleaded. We begged. We said, you guys are acting as if you won't ever lose another election while the will of the majority was ignored.

Well, the majority has spoken, and they want their country back.

olefool

There was an eye witness, his victim.... Also, the trump lawyers squelched the investigation and refused to let the FBI interview witnesses, same as they did in the impeachment. c'mon nice... catch up...

Dwasserba

Yeaahhh former Catholic school girls saw Kavenaugh's doughy smirky face spewing a tempestuous entitled fit of pique and thought, "Uh-huh, I know you." Memories, like you say. No thanks.
