    I mean... you're right. you are right, The Millionairre. But... I think in the end; on January 20th... Joe Biden and his team will take the white house and Trumps refusal to concede and ... I just think is more of a reality TV show than I ever think is right for the United States of America.

    Trump, unlike most Republicans lately, will not concede. He will, however, accept what the law says (unlike Democrats). So expect to see Trump follow
    the law and do whatever is legally possible (again, unlike Democrats) to win.

    I see two outcomes here:
    1. After the recounts and the removal of illegal ballots, it will become clear that Trump easily won the Electorial vote.
    2. The Dems will stonewall the recounts and removal of the illegal ballots and some state votes will not be certified by the deadline. In that case, those electoral votes simply aren't counted. Neither Biden nor Trump have enough
    to win and the vote goes before the, now Republican controlled, House. Again Trump will probably win.

    I agree with that; furthermore, I think I said so earlier, I don't think we should rely on or lean on mail-in voting on any normal election year... I do think it was needed THIS year, because of the pandemic we're all dealing with.

    I'm with you that we need to sniff out ANY voting issues. I think that we've had issues, in election years passed - and this year is as good as any to decide to get on that.

    Regardless of who wins, I want to find out
    1. How dead people voted in those numbers.
    2. Why the voting machines mysteriously changed Trump votes to Biden.
    3. Where the 160,000 ballots came from in my local area - in the middle of the night with only Biden selected on the ballot.

    Personally, if we don't see at least some people in jail for mishandling of ballots, the trust in the election process

    But it will be interesting to understand how how those dead people voted andwhere those 160,000 Biden-only votes came from.

    I think that any court cases and investigations will show that there was an average amount of voting fraud/issues this year as any other year; Well, I think that they will show that mail-in does allow/permit for more instances and is not something we should do across the board, for every election.

    I don't think theres [many] anyone saying they disagree with court cases and investigations into the issues that were present in this election - but I think whats getting louder and louder is the fact that how President Trump is handling the end of his presidency is... unethical, immoral and something thats never been done before. Team Biden should absolutely have access to all that he needs to get HIS presidency in order; Trumps huge ego and unwillingness to admit defeat and embrace the new White House is many things, but ultimately its dangerous to the US people.

    Thats what he lost me over, anyway.. and I think the rest of America agreed. Pretty stupid, too - If he would have just been a tad more humble, I think a LOT of America would have given him more of a chance; maybe even another 4 years...

    I hope Trump allows Biden all the tools to allow Biden to prepare.
    I don't really care if Trump conceeds, however his inability to doso will completely shape my future thoughts about this guy; I supported him during his presidency- but that support is all but dead now.
    I wish Trump wouldn't drag this thru the courts in the way that he is- no one but his base, and I'd be willing to bet its not a huge amount of even them, believes that he should or can retain the office.

    Anyway, we disagree about some things - but ultimately I'm not saying we shouldn't investigate. I just think Trump lost - and should be more... presidential. I'm scared of thinking what he COULD do on his way out - and don't put anyting past him... its gonna be a crazy couple of months; the American people would be much better served if he'd handle them differently.

    Normally, I would agree with you, an think Trump is behaving awfully. If the Democrats/Establishment were not so hellbent on revenge, on putting people into line, there would be no excuse for Trumps action.

    But given that Trump would be handing power to people, who in my view, are acting like FASCISTS, Trump is defending many millions of Americans from being left to the dogs. If the Democrats, the media, the establishment was acting in good faith, I would say Trumps action are indefensible. But these people are not acting like that, they are enabling a new theocracy, Communist style politics and some really scary ideas and sensorship. Trump owes it to the USA to ensure that these people cannot engage in further dodgy actions (as they have been doing so far), and being a stickler for election legitimacy is a good way to do it.

    t they will show that mail-in does allow/permit for more instances and is not s
    mething we should do across the board, for every election.

    I mostly agree, although this thing with Dominion is becoming interesting.
    I am curious to see if it turns out to be accidental or on purpose. They
    will probably never be able to prove it was the latter, granted.

    ts getting louder and louder is the fact that how President Trump is handling t
    e end of his presidency is... unethical, immoral and something thats never been
    done before. Team Biden should absolutely have access to all that he needs to g
    t HIS presidency in order; Trumps huge ego and unwillingness to admit defeat an
    embrace the new White House is many things, but ultimately its dangerous to the
    US people.

    My understanding of the election process is that Biden, as the Democratic
    party nominee, already has/had access to a lot of the things they need. Particularly, I have heard it mentioned in the press that he is being
    denied access to security briefings. As the nominee, I think he already
    had access to those. I think I learned that fact during the last
    election cycle when some partisans got upset when the found out that Trump
    (or HRC, for the other side) had already been briefed so that they could formulate their campaign.

    Anyway, we disagree about some things - but ultimately I'm not saying we should

    m scared of thinking what he COULD do on his way out - and don't put anyting pa

    h better served if he'd handle them differently.

    I also agree he lost, provided this Dominion thing doesn't grow any bigger
    than it already has. I think some people are concerned, me included, that whatever might have happened there will get swept under the rug if it waits until Biden takes office. Allowing an apparently incompetent software
    company to continue to be involved in our election process is a concern to
    me.

    False Leftie Narrative.

    There are enough electoral votes that are disputed that Biden's "win" is just propaganda.

    Lefties like to ignore any law that they don't like (which is any that doesn't go along with their Narrative). The media doesn't get to call the election - that's the law. And "never been done before" is just smoke.

    Team
    Biden should absolutely have access to all that he needs to get HIS presidency in order;

    And he will, once he's won, which won't happen until Dec. 12 at the earliest. And seeing how the Biden family itself is a huge security risk, I can't see senile Joe getting access until he's officially won (if ever).

    Trumps huge ego and unwillingness to admit defeat
    and embrace the new White House is many things, but ultimately its dangerous to the US people.

    More False Leftie Narrative.

    humble, I think a LOT of America would have given him more of a chance; maybe even another 4 years...

    a big red flag.

    Yes, some percent will vote for only the presidental choice - but not 160,000 in one shot. And even then, out of a 160,000 votes the chance that 0 will be for someone other than Biden is highly improbable (along the chances of winning the lottery).

    Agreed. Watching the results, when they suddenly jumped like that, made we wonder if some states were couting their votes in batches of who the person voted for. The only way I can figure it would work that way would be if
    they sorted them by Presidential vote first before counting. However, as
    all of the votes until then were not for Trump, that wasn't exactly what
    they were doing.

    Based on the amount of red on the maps, most of America did give Trump another
    4 years. The "blue wave" that was predicted never happened.

    The map does look pretty red, but then you remember that excluding the red-turning-purple Lone Star State, several million more people live in blue California than all those reliably red states west of the Mississippi River combined. Those 14 Republican-leaning states get to cast 72 electoral college votes to California's 55, but it's a lot of land colored red on that map for not a lot of people.

    It's not really a close election at all. Trump has lost by more than 5 million votes and he'll still have lost by 5 million votes when it's all certified in December. It's not close in the Electoral College either despite the built-in advantage the GOP currently holds in our antiquated system for chosing presidents. It's perplexing that more than 70 million voted to keep an egomaniacal, compulsive liar and con man in power, but so many more voted to remove him.

    Trump told us he'd never accept defeat. We knew he'd declare victory before all the votes were counted if he held an early lead on election night.

    Trump is going to do what serves Trump; American be damned. So let him golf and tweet absurdities in all caps while his lawyers soak MAGA donors for millions. The hope is he can't do more harm now than he's done in four years. He never puts much effort into anything and he's not about to start. We'll have to pick up the pieces from his laziness and incompetency, but he'll be gone in a couple months. Still an annoyance and an embarassment for sure, but no longer posing a direct threat to national and global security.

    And I'll remind you that we live in a republic, not a democracy.

    The Electoral process was set up so that whoever gets the Presidency is the one who gets the most wide-spread support - not the one who get the popular vote.

    Based on the red on the map, Trump got the most wide-spread support. Biden only got support from small areas.

    It's not really a close election at all.

    Then you need to watch something other than CNN for your "news". Last I checked
    Trump was slightly ahead in electoral votes with nearly all the swing states still in play.

    Trump told us he'd never accept defeat. We knew he'd declare victory before all the votes were counted if he held an early lead on election night.

    No. You were told by your Leftie handlers all that.

    You're confused. That's the attitude of Biden and the rest of the lefties - as they've demonstrated time and time again. But you'll only know that if
    you get your information from non-propaganda sources.

    Based on the amount of red on the maps, most of America did give Trump another 4 years. The "blue wave" that was predicted never happened.

    Land doesn't vote. People do.

    Neither vote for President. The states do via the electoral college.

    Which makes him different than Biden or HRC or Obama or W or any other
    recent President, except maybe the elder Bush, how?

    I do think Trump is probably better in that regard since at least Bush
    41. I do think that Reagan absolutely was about country first, loved
    the US, western culture and democracy, and it showed. HW served the
    country above most other things, but his family was highly political
    beyond him though.

    Clinton, I don't even know where to begin, and Obama largely emulated
    the same. Biden is probably the absolute worst in terms of corruption
    of the political system of any President in the past century. I wish it
    were different.

    I'm hoping to see more from the likes of Crenshaw and other more
    populist conservative upstarts in the mid-terms and 2024 election run.
    I'd also like to see a more pragmatic Libertarian candidate running, but that's a really hard ask.

    The Marxists inside the DNC need to be stopped in their tracks and the
    tech censorship worries me in so much as their ideas may spread
    unchecked by reality, history or experience of those who know better.

    Beyond this, later released notes from inside the (closed) committee

    persecute his son.

    Flynn admitted to lying to the FBI about conversations he had with Russia's embassador to the US. He said he pleaded guilty because he lied. His son also had some kind of entanglement but I don't know if that was related to Flynn's charges.

    Roger Stone was also convicted and about to go to jail to serve his time when Donald Trump commuted his sentence.

    Beyond this, he didn't do anything that Biden's staff isn't doing right now, so should they all be locked up as well?

    What has Biden's staff done? Biden won an election that is said to be "free and fair" and one of the most secure elections. Today people get fired for saying things like that. Strange.

    Rissiagate? Several were investigated, convicted and imprisoned.

    Yes... but Trump wasn't involved in anything. Also, regarding some of those investigations, they weren't directly related.

    Trump wasn't involved? He was impeached!

    When asked Mueller said that Trump could be charged with obstruction after he left office. The Mueller report never cleared Trump as William Barr said.

    Maybe the Congress should have followed through and actually gone to the Supreme Court to call on the witnesses that refused to show up? They didn't and the Senate was under no requirement to do so, it lost on its' own (lack of) merit.

    There was no trial to speak of because republicans didn't want one, the facts be damned.

    If you think Trump is going to win when the Electoral College casts its votes and if you think everyone who isn't on board with MAGA is glued to CNN, you should take your own advice and deversify your news consumption. ONN, Newsmax, Breitbart and the dwindling number of Trump-approved outlets are Trumpworld favorites for a reason and it's not because of high journalism standards or a track record of crediblity. Note how Fox News has fallen out of favor for "disloyalty." Perhaps try the Wall Street Journal, Reason.com, and something from the foreign press like, say, the Economist? Reading points of view that challenge one's own world view is a habit I would encourage for all regardless of political allegiance.

    Having an election decided SOLELY by the number of nationwide votes is a
    bad idea. The US system wasn't an issue until Trump got elected, then
    people decided a system which worked for two centuries was faulty, and
    they "forgot" why its set up the way it is. Australians said the
    Electoral College system was crazy, seemingly unaware that we aren't all
    that different!

    In Australia, the ruling party is decided by the members of the house of representatives. The country is divided up into a fixed number of
    electorates, each electorate covers a region encompassing a set number
    of people. So each electorate has the same number of people, but
    obviously will vary in size depending on density. The electorate votes
    for who will take a set in the house of representatives, and the representatives basically determine the winning party. The Senate
    (upper house) represents the states evenly. So it is quite possible for
    one party to get more votes, but win less seats overall. You want to
    represent not just the most people, but the broadest area.

    It seems the Democrats do NOT have wide support. It makes sense, if
    most of the regions of the US support Trump, that this would weigh in
    his favour.

    I also do. If Trump was all about himself he would be getting paid to be President, for one. I believe that his methods were too rough. If they
    were more polished, he would have had a better time of it (but maybe would
    not have been elected to begin with!). I feel that Regan and GHW Bush both loved their country. Not sure that W didn't, either, but he was at least surrounded by profiteers.

    Clinton, I don't even know where to begin, and Obama largely emulated
    the same. Biden is probably the absolute worst in terms of corruption
    of the political system of any President in the past century. I wish it
    were different.

    IMHO, Obama disliked the country more that Bill did. Not completely sure
    Bill disliked it so much as I did not always agree with his methods, and he
    was out to make a buck I am sure. He at least liked the female US
    population a lot. HRC disliked most of the country. Biden is a corruption machine.

    I'm hoping to see more from the likes of Crenshaw and other more
    populist conservative upstarts in the mid-terms and 2024 election run.
    I'd also like to see a more pragmatic Libertarian candidate running, but that's a really hard ask.

    I like Ben Carson. He was my 2016 pick but never really got enough backing
    to make a solid go in the primaries.

    The Marxists inside the DNC need to be stopped in their tracks and the
    tech censorship worries me in so much as their ideas may spread
    unchecked by reality, history or experience of those who know better.

    So far anyway, Biden seems to maybe be ignoring the "more progressive"
    members of his party. Not sure what will happen when he is forced to step aside and Harris takes over.

    This investigation is complete and Biden did nothing wrong. It wasn't Biden who wanted the prosecutor fired, it was for some policy or corruption on the part of that prosecutor and he was fired.

    It's true Biden's son had a contract with Barisma, a big fat juicy one but there is nothing wrong with that.

    until they fire an attorney (who was after his son's company) or Trump's
    team withholding it hoping to get the country to pursue a case against
    Biden (for doing the same thing) is not different under those circumstances.

    It was pretty clear that Quid Pro Joe wanted the prosecutor (that was investigating the company his worthless son was on the board of) removed

    My understanding is that no one in Washington is allowed to withhold promised foreign aid money regardless of the reason. Biden withholding until they fire an attorney (who was after his son's company)

    It was the American position that they wanted a corrupt prosecutor fired, and he was fired.

    or Trump's team withholding it hoping to get the country to pursue a case against Biden (for doing the same thing) is not different under those circumstances.

    Trump was not acting from the American position. Congress gave this aid to Ukraine but Trump didn't give it to them. He held it up until they agreed to dig up dirt on biden, his political opponent.

    A very different scenario.

    You don't remember right. You should review the video again.

    It was pretty clear that Quid Pro Joe wanted the prosecutor (that was investigating the company his worthless son was on the board of) removed or the gov't of Ukraine wouldn't get the money.

    Yeah. That's what I said.

    There was no "despot" involved. But nice attempt at a spin.

    They wanted a corrupt prosecutor fired, and he was.

    What Donald Trump was doing was a little different. Donald was
    holding money congress gave Ukraine for dirt on Biden. That was not
    never the American position.

    Just more fake news from the Leftie media.

    That is what Donald Trump was doing. That is largely what got him impeached.

    Donald Trump does not care about you or America. He only cares about
    himself.

    You're confused. Biden has been in politics for 47 years without doing anything. The Dems have a trail of corruption so long that it's almost horrorifying. Of course, you won't see any of that as long as you continue to watch your Leftie Media.

    Your right, Biden has been in politics for decades. He was vice president for eight years beside a very successful president. The people knew what they were getting with Biden.

    You keep spouting Leftie talking points and ignoring the facts.

    I have the facts in hand. The facts don't show any of the right's claims as having any basis in reality. Fantasy maybe, but not reality.

    It is illegal for the US government to withhold promised foreign aid funds while asking for something in return. So, "they wanted a corrupt
    prosecutor fired, and he was," = they did something illegal.

    Do they not teach you what quid pro quo means in Canada?

    That is what Donald Trump was doing. That is largely what got him impeached.

    And it was illegal when Biden, or Obama, did it, too.

    Trump's ideological views are Conservative. His biggest problem though is that he believes in big government and has expanded it since taking office. Contrary to what he said he was going to do, he did not shrink government but has instead added 2 million jobs to the federal workforce.

    This has happened in the UK also. These days a "conservative" is someone who is left of centre, compared to say... 15-20 years ago when they would have been referred to as a "leftie". Now the smaller parties that are occupying the right of centre are deemed to comprise of "The Far Right". This effect is known as the Overton window.

    I just love the way Lefties want to change the definition to match their "facts".

    "Big Government" has to do with the intrusion of government into our lives.

    I will point to the Preamble to the Constutition:
    "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

    So, let's see, the Dems:
    1. Allowed people to riot and destroy cities - so they failed on domestic tranquility.
    2. Are in league with China and Russia - so they failed on common defense.
    3. Promote social programs that keep people in poverty - so they fail on general welfare.
    4. Want to tell us how to live our lives - so they fail on the Blessings of Liberty.

    while Trump:
    1. Deputized local law enforcement as federal agents which help to squash the riots.
    2. Is pulling out of bad foreign deals, foreign wars and is brokering peace - sounds to me like it's providing for common defence.
    3. Removing rules, regulations, programs that keep people down. The last 4 years were the most prosperous in a long time for people.
    4. Wants to get the government out of our lives as much as possible.

    And then we get to the Leftie "definition" of "Conservative" that you seem to want to redefine to meet your arguments.

    Land doesn't vote. People do.

    And I'll remind you that we live in a Republic, not a Democracy.

    I'm quite aware.

    Lefties like to ignore the facts that they don't like. The fact is that the Constutition set up a system where the President is the candidate that gets the most wide-spread support.

    Incorrect. feel free to go back to school and read upon the "three-fifths compromise". The real reason we have the Electoral College is abhorrent.

    The Constitution was set up so that it could be changed over the years. It's supposed to be a living document, yet it's been 49 years since we went through that process with the 26th amendment.


    If you look at the maps, you will see that Biden got only a few, hightly populated areas of the country. Even here in Michigan, he got only the large cities. Not what I would call "wide-spread" support.

    once again, Land doesn't vote. All but 2 states cast all their electoral college ballots for the presidential candidate that won the popular vote for that state. If the majority of the voting population lives in a city, and they overwhelmingly support a specific candidate, then that's all that matters. One person who lives in a 300sq foot apartment in a city has a vote that's worth the same as someone who owns hundreds and hundreds of acres of countryside.

    people have been sitting on their asses for 8 months just waiting for their un
    ployment payouts. they arent looking for work. i ask them why they are waitin
    so long when there's good paying jobs out there and they dont give the reasons
    nd jump down my throat.

    people want to sit at home and get high and have the government take care of t
    m. my body is fucked up. i can barely walk because of an injured tendon in my
    eg and i am still on my feet all day and moving around.

    There are many elitist democratic voters who will tell you that those folks don't exist. I am glad I am not the only one who notices them. I live in
    an area where most of my neighbors are older and retired. Something I had noticed before, and have again now that we are on WFH, is the number of
    adult children who spend most of their time (in good weather) sitting on
    their parent's front porches playing on their cell phones. They were doing
    it before COVID, so there is no blaming it on that. They are basically
    waiting for mom and dad to kick off so that they can have the house. A
    couple of them have been sent up the river for dealing drugs off the porch. They are lazy af.

    One of those neighbors moved out. A person closer to my age moved it. Her teenage/early-20's son has at least 2 jobs. Good to see that some kids
    still want to work.

    We call those kids "NiNis" in Spain. "_Ni_ Estudian _Ni_ Trabajan" (No job, no studying).

    I don't think we have as many of those, but the ones we have seem to be concentrated in the same geographical areas. If you go to certain squares in Madrid it is easy to find people in the mid 20s that spend all their waking time partying in that square.

    Then we have a curious phenomenon here when it comes to unemployment. Spain has produced a lot of gradutates as of late. When those graduates hit the job market, it turns out there are no vacancies for gradutates and that most demand is for VS. After a year trying to turn my good for nothing Engineering degree into a job I started applying for lower level jobs, and got always rejected because I was overqualified.

    The same factory owners who sent me back home would then complain that no VS would take their job offers.

    Seriously, this place deserves to rot.

    What is a VS? I must admit that is one thing I am concerned with

    at getting a job outside of my field of study is that employers seem to
    turn their noses up at people with an IT degree or IT background, I assume because they are afraid we have no social skills, or any skills that don't involve sitting in front of a computer screen.

    Maybe *YOU* should go back to school, as the 3/5 compromise predates the electoral college, and doesn't have anything to do with Congressional representation for a century and a half, twice the lifetime of almost everyone alive today.

    Slaves were counted as 3/5 of a person in terms of population. Population was (is) how congressional seats are decided, which, in turn, is how many Electoral College votes a state gets.

    I'm quite aware.

    Then why do you keep bringing up the idea of "popular vote" in context of the Presidental Election?

    Because all but two states give all their electoral college votes to whomever wins the popular vote in that state. nearly 1/5 of Wisconsin's population lives in a tiny area, called "Milwaukee", which covers 0.14% of Wisconsin's land mass. While Wisconsin was very much "red" in terms of counties (including the county I live in), the people in Wisconsin voted for Biden as their president. The argument was that the vast majority of the US was "red" while only tiny areas were "blue". My point stands, and is factual. Land does not vote.

    You've obviously been incortrinated, not educated.

    I've already explained that "expanded gov't" has nothing to do with number o employees. It has to do with the amount of
    intrusion the gov't has into people's lives.

    I agree that the expansiveness of a government is better messured by how much in intrudes in people's lives, but then, having a big workforce in its pocket is _usually_ an indication that it is expansive.

    I mean, it takes taxes to keep that workforce, and when that workforce is big, it is big for a reason. Either to buy votes (easy to make your workers vote for you when you are in the government), or to better intrude in the lives of everybody else.

    But I think the conversation misses the point.

    The core factor that separates conservatives from progressives is that conservatives adhere themselves to a set of traditional morals and cultural principles, while progresives reject them. That is why General Francisco Franco is considered a conservative despite the fact he was a hardcore socialist at heart. He was socializing everything in name of God and Country :-P

    VS would be Vocational Studies. If I am not mistaken, those are the equivalent of the Spanish FP (Formacin Profesional).

    Piece of advice here: when applying to a low grade job, remove any reference to high profile IT qualifications. People does not seem to read past them when they find it in your CV, they just put it in the trash bin after reading that part :-( Main reason I am goign so hard at writing and setting my e-commerces nowadays is that my employability seems to be quite low if only for this reason.

    That whole statement is not true. You talk as if the number was decided then and never changed. As the 3/5ths compromise is no longer used, everyone counts as 1. The number of congressional seats, and electoral votes, a state gets
    can change. Smaller states have seen their numbers go down, while larger states have seen their numbers go up.

    The 3/5ths compromise no longer has anything to do with determining how

    Yup, I agree with that too. The difference is that you don't constantly spew doom and gloom, and anti-USA drivel, and outright lies, the way this Andeddu character does. I get tired of his crap.


    I don't like what's happening in the USA (as it'll affect us all globally) and I have a right to voice my opinion whether you like it or not. If you don't like it, don't engage with me. And if you do engage with me, at least attempt to debate my arguments rather than just slinging insults my way; you'll look more credible if you do. It's not rocket science, bud. There's no need to be so sensitive over the opinions of someone over the internet. I am not even purposely trying to trigger you! Why get upset when you're on DOVE-NET of all places... this isn't even Facebook, Reddit, 4Chan or any form of relevant social media!

    Yes, those cities tend to vote Democratic quite heavily.

    I would be inclinded to agree. Unless the flaws are pointed out, they can never be addressed. I said one thing to criticise Trump and a number of posters took it personally and jumped down my throat, which I found to be quite amusing as the snowflake mentality is characteristically angled towards the Left rather than the Right whereas the reality appears to be that both sides can be as bad as each other. I like Trump and if I were as US citizen, he'd have gotten my vote... but he sure isn't perfect! The USA, as a nation, is far from perfect either and the reason I have made my opinion known is that I'd like the US global hegemony maintained and not have it usurped in under a decade by a country like China.

    Absolutely. Both groups are as bad as each other. I do agree with certain Leftist views however I am more of a Conservative than anything, but I can see the double standard as clear as day. The Right get very sensitive whenever their political figures/policy is criticised as much as the Left complain and throw their toys out the pram whenever their's are criticised. It's the same with the Left always banging on about Right wing conspiracy theories when they're guilty of disseminating their own "Russian collusion" conspiracy theory for years and continue to do so after it being debunked.

    True but, in this particular case, the person making the criticism has no candidate because they don't live here. People got angry because some
    Russians on FB were supposedly telling us who to vote for in our US election, so I think people here have just as much of a right to get upset when it seems someone who does not live in our country is trying to influence people politically.

    There are one or two in the FIDO Politics echo who do that for sure. Then there are others who express an opinion but also tell us about how things
    are going in their own country. I don't mind that as much.

    Debates aren't arguments.

    From some article in a DuckDuckGo search:

    A 'debate', as a noun, is understood as a formal discussion between people or groups of people that is regulated. Interestingly, debates are considered based on 'arguments', which are lines of reasoning, support or evidence about a subject. However, a debate has the feeling of a larger, longer or more formal discussion. A formal debate may even be judged by a person or a panel of people, with one side winning the debate by providing the best lines of reasoning or support for the issue. For example, She argued that people should have the right to decide about their own medical care at the debate.

    It's the same with the Left always banging on about Right wing conspiracy
    theories when they're guilty of disseminating their own "Russian collusion" conspiracy theory for years and continue to do so after it being debunked.

    How was it debunked? Several including Roger Stone were convicted and sentenced for their crimes although Roger Stone never did his time because Donald Trump commuted his sentence and has now pardoned Michael Flynn. I don't know if Michael Flynn's pardon will stick since his case hasn't concluded yet.

    Russian collusion was never a conspiracy theory. A large number of people were convicted and sentenced for their roles.

    The UK isn't particularly important on the world stage right now. MRO is right,
    there is no even partnership between our countries like during the >Thatcher/Reagan era... since Blair, you have been the dog and we have been the >tail.

    Why do you suppose Blair (or the US) let it get that way?

    I was replying to his comment that Trump supporters take it personally when he >riticized Trump, when usually leftists tend to be known as snowflakes.

    While I know some people are upset, I have not seen any screaming or crying
    at a protest because Biden won. I have not seen people I thought were
    rational adults having breakdowns on FB because Biden won. Four years ago, there were examples all over. That is the first time I remember hearing snowflake used. Get back with me when those kind of emotional breakdowns
    start happening on as widespread of a basis and I may see your point.

    OTOH, soon we will see what happens when the late night folks start telling Biden jokes in place of Trump ones. I never watch the Daily Show but,
    based on the ads, Trevor Noah is going to have to get a lot funnier than he
    is. I never thought his Trump jokes were funny, but know people who did. The other day I saw one where he told Biden jokes. He is still not funny, and
    I doubt any Biden supporter will get a kick out of those jokes, either.

    A 'debate', as a noun, is understood as a formal discussion between people or groups of people that is regulated. Interestingly, debates are considered based on 'arguments', which are lines of reasoning, support or evidence about a subject. However, a debate has the feeling of a larger, longer or more formal discussion. A formal debate may even be judged by a person or a panel of people, with one side winning the debate by providing the best lines of reasoning or support for the issue. For example, She argued that people should have the right to decide about their own medical care at the debate.

    A lot of the time certain posters here constitute a 'debate' as hurling insults at one another. I won't name names, but it's fairly evident who they are.

    How was it debunked? Several including Roger Stone were convicted and sentenced for their crimes although Roger Stone never did his time because Donald Trump commuted his sentence and has now pardoned Michael Flynn. I don't know if Michael Flynn's pardon will stick since his case hasn't concluded yet.

    Russian collusion was never a conspiracy theory. A large number of people were convicted and sentenced for their roles.

    Last I checked, which was a long time ago, the Mueller Report returned with no sufficient evidence in relation to a Trump-Russia conspiracy.

    I am not following the events *that*c closely but investigations regarding contested votes are turning interesting things. Like those machines that were scannign votes and assigning them to the wrong party, or people caught scanning the same set of votes multiple times.

    My mother was running numbers earlier this morning and told me none of the candidates has votes enough to become elect president once you substract the votes that are under non-baseless investigation.

    In fact I find it disturbing when a lot of media is reporting that things are settled and Trump is conceeding. Specially because somebody showed me a headline from a Spanish journal which claimed Trump was conceeding while Trump himself was posting he didn't on Twitter.

    I don't know. Perhaps it was to do with Blair not having a forceful or particularly strong personality. He was allegedly pushed around by Gordon Brown, his Chancellor, while he was Prime Minister. Bush wasn't really in awe with him either... I still recall the "Yo, Blair!" incident, haha.

I know they would surely have tried, but that's par for the course in international politics. Every country tries to meddle in every other country's elections. I don't doubt there's a realistic possibility Trump could be charged with something but it would be similar charges to Roger Stone and Michael Flynn. Those were obstruction charges, or similar, not charges of conspiracy and collusion.

    It is tedious, much like the current stolen election thread but I think it's important to have and look at the facts.

    I only saw that the Mueller Report returned with non-sufficency to prove a definitive connection.

    That's what Bill Barr had to say but Mueller contradicted his conclusion

    I don't know how Russia could influence an election in any meaningful and widespread way. I know they would surely have tried, but that's par for the course in international politics. Every country tries to meddle in every other country's elections.

    Social media is one of the main ways today. It's a great way to spread lies and misinformation.

    I don't doubt there's a realistic possibility Trump could be charged with something

    Obstruction at least. It's unclear if he had a direct role in that. I think he simply used people like Roger Stone and Michael Flynn to get his deeds done.

    but it would be similar charges to Roger Stone and Michael Flynn. Those were obstruction charges, or similar, not charges of conspiracy and collusion.

    Roger Stone and Michael Flynn were involved in a conspiracy and collusion. Roger Stone was charged with seven felonies and convicted on all counts. They involved lying to congress and witness tampering.

    When Michael Flynn's involvement was discovered he pleaded guilty and cooperated with the investigation. Later he changed his mind and wanted to change his plea to not guilty. His cases has not yet concluded.

    There is a large number of folks, American and otherwise that were convicted of crimes related to the Russia investigation. Most will not be considered for a presidential pardon.

    There is no conspiracy theory here.

    My mother was running numbers earlier this morning and told me none of the candidates has votes enough to become elect president once you substract the votes that are under non-baseless investigation.

    Some of that is not actually true. Some of the other accusations, though,
    are things that have been caught on video. The explanations of what was
    caught is always a basic "no evidence of any fraud has been found." They
    don't explain what is going on in the videos. I would be much more
    satisfied with "we looked into this and what the tape shows is (a shift change/people being sent home who could not work overtime/something else
    that makes sense), and does not show anything fradulent going on."

    But that is not the explanation that is making it out into the press, which does make it seem suspicious. They need to do a better job of explaining
    "no evidence." All they are doing by not doing so is helping Trump keeps
    his base stirred up.

    be to "launch an inquiry". That process would allow the
    seeking of evidence - wouldn't it?

    There have been an continues to be so many enquiries, all out in the open for everyone to see.

    The votes have been counted and recounted in many of the swing states. Election authorities and governors in those states have not thrown out the election results even when invited to the white house for talks with Donald Trump because they have held free and fair elections in those states and the people have spoken.

    Why would they do otherwise?

    Inquiries are designed to facilitate the processes to access
    records, films, documents, and scrutinize everything.

    Texas has taken other states to court, the supreme court, because the people in those states choose differently than the people in their state! I might call that hilarious but it's not funny.

    This could only happen in Donald Trumps world. No other president has talked of rigged elections the way Donald Trump has ever since he decided to run in the 2016 election. That's his and now the GOP narrative.

    The allegations of fraud were never dismissed. This election has been looked ov
    r time and again. There have been hearings and investigations but never any rea

    The only explanation of the allegation we are talking about, the one
    actually caught on tape, so far has been a public parroting of "no evidence."

    If they want to be transparent and kick the legs out from under Trump, they would explain it better than that. Dennis is correct. They don't want to provide an explanation.

    Just a few months ago, something else got caught on tape that everyone
    wanted an explanation for. The Minneapolis cops could not explain it
    because there was no legitimate explanation for it. They screwed up bad
    and everyone knew it.

    The potential crime is much different, but this explanation is just as bad.

    At the very least, you want want to act in a way which affirms people faith in the democratic process. If people believe that the democratic process doesn't work, then investigating and reporting an explanation for the claims of anomalies would restore faith. And that is IMPORTANT, because we consider free and fair elections something worthy to die and to kill for.

    Even if the claims aren't justified, the 'ruling elite' have an obligation to assure the public, by means of evidence and careful debunking by providing better explanations of what is going on.

    If they want to be transparent

    Where is this lack of transparency?

    and kick the legs out from under Trump, they would explain it better than
    that. Dennis is correct. They don't want to provide an explanation.

    There was an election, the votes were counted and Joe Biden was declared the w
    ner of that election.

    You may need to be tested for a reading comprehension issue. We were discussing a specific, RECENT video that surfaced which shows some election officials apparently being sent out of a room, and then the remaining ones pulling a bunch of ballot containers out from under a covered table and
    running them through the machines.

    I mentioned that it was a specific incident in the message you half-quoted above.

    There was no explanation or transparency beyound the default "no evidence" line. Like I have said more than once, if they know it is not fraud, give
    an actual explanation and kick Trump's legs out from under him.

    "No evidence" is a BS answer that government folks give when they don't
    want to explain something. It is also how conspiracy theories start.

    At the very least, you want want to act in a way which affirms people faith in >the democratic process.

And that is IMPORTANT, because we consider free
    and fair elections something worthy to die and to kill for.

    Exactly.

    Even if the claims aren't justified, the 'ruling elite' have an obligation to >assure the public, by means of evidence and careful debunking by providing >better explanations of what is going on.

    Some people, like the ones who dismiss everything they don't believe as a "conspiracy theory," are happy enough with the little box that shows up
    after each election-related FB or YT post that tells them everything is OK.
    I would prefer something a little more than a social media company's word for it.

    Sorry you must have fallen behind again.

    OK, good. You can keep taking about that if you want.

    "No evidence" is a BS answer that government folks give when they don't want to explain something. It is also how conspiracy theories start.

    No evidence is no evidence. It's made of the same BS as a conspiracy theory.

    There is video evidence with no explanation given.

    I guess next you will tell us all that the Fang Fang/Chinese spy issue is a conspiracy theory because Nancy P. says it was no big deal?

    What about Hunter's China dealings? That was a conspiracy theory, too, until CNN started reporting earlier this week that he is indeed under
    investigation, just like others reported he was before the election back in October.

    A 'debate', as a noun, is understood as a formal discussion between people or groups of people that is regulated. Interestingly, debates are considered based on 'arguments', which are lines of reasoning, support or evidence about a subject. However, a debate has the feeling of a larger, longer or more formal discussion. A formal debate may even be judged by a person or a panel of people, with one side winning the debate by providing the best lines of reasoning or support for the issue. For example, She argued that people should have the right to decide about their own medical care at the debate.

    A lot of the time certain posters here constitute a 'debate' as hurling insults at one another. I won't name names, but it's fairly evident who they are.

    I'm honestly here to kick back and watch, munching on popcorn. I hope not to contribute to that too much, but holy fuck if some of it isn't funny as hell.

    It seems odd how easily some are willing to dismiss fraud, but have no alternative explanation. Its like they've stopped trying to maintain a vene of credibility now.

    Because the whole system is Freudulent. What would they do if they allowed it? Toss out the entire election? Preidents are just puppets. They are really not that important and do not have the power people believe they have. It's time to move on.

    It seems odd how easily some are willing to dismiss fraud, but have no alternative explanation. Its like they've stopped trying to maintain a veneer of credibility now.

    The allegations of fraud were never dismissed. This election has been looked over time and again. There have been hearings and investigations but never any real evidence of a stolen election.

    Here in the message areas we can make any kind of claims we want and argue day and night.

    In a court if you make allegations you have to have proof and none has been provided.

    Isn't the whole point of being an investigative journalist, to look into it?

    That is my point, journalists weren't interested in digging into the claims. They were merely dismissed.

    Can't be a journalist if no one will publish your "Conspiracies" and you loose all your contacts in the industry. Learned that the hard way in the games industry.

    I get touchy if they always criticise my country but never
    criticise, or even discuss, their own, or seem overly obsessed
    with my country's leadership. Otherwise, I feel they are free to
    their opinion. :)

    if people from other countries criticize the usa it's usually because
    of their edia is so sensationalized. they've been that way a lot
    longer than our media as been.

    Yes, or they've been watching our media. It would be nice if the media would quit trying to compete with the cable news and the internet and just present the news for what it is and not the entertainment value.

    Lemon is an outright racist, and doesn't even really try to hide it.
    CNN doesn't seem to care, because he's carrying the Dem agenda forward
    as he's been trained to do.

    The other two are just stupid regurgitators of what they're told to say.
