    Arizona: “Trump Supporters Demonstrate Outside Vote Processing Facility In Arizona”
    “NBC News correspondent Gadi Schwartz reports from Maricopa County, Arizona, where a crowd of Trump supporters has gathered outside the county elections department building in Phoenix. Schwartz says the crowd has been chanting “Count that vote” and “Fox News sucks” to protest that network’s decision to call the state for Joe Biden. Schwartz says law enforcement has been escorting poll workers to their cars at the end of their shifts to prevent harassment by the crowd.”
    —–Mob rule doing the will of tinpot dictator and legally allowed to open carry. Vote counters have to be escorted by police to their cars. (Fox News, AP, Al Jazeera and others called AZ for Biden early.)

    Biden is on track to match Trump’s 2016 electoral margin victory (the exact same 306-232), BUT with a massive popular vote lead. This was a dominant win.

  16. November 5, 2020 at 12:38 pm

    RONALD KLAIN
    “The former chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden explained (to Maddow, Reid, Wallace) that presiident Donald Trump’s lawsuits demanding an end to counting votes likely wouldn’t be successful.”

    “Well, look, Rachel, they are both baseless and stupid,” Klain explained.
    “They’re baseless in the sense that they have no legal basis at all. They’re stupid in the sense that one of the states where Trump is suing to stop the vote count in Michigan, where he is behind. So, if the vote count stops,
    we win. So, it’s a particularly ridiculous legal strategy in the state of Michigan.”

    “He explained that in Pennsylvania, Trump is alleging that there is no oversight of the counting of the ballots, which is also absurd. The counting process is being broadcasted online. Trump could watch it in real-time on any device he chooses.”

    “Donald Trump had a formidable lead this morning,” Klain admitted.
    “Two-thirds of it has gone away over the course of today. And we believe we are on track to win that state by 100,000 votes or more. So, the point we have been making throughout this entire period since the polls closed in that the votes have to be counted. That’s the democratic way. They are being counted in an orderly way. Trump has no real legal challenge to that at all. You saw from the report in Pennsylvania. People can watch the count on closed-circuit television. There is nothing mysterious. There is nothing secret here.
    We’re seeing democracy in action.”

    “I thought Joy’s points earlier very moving, very powerful, but in the end, the right outcome will be achieved here.
    In the end, this campaign will be successful,” said Klain. “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be the president and the vice president of the United States. and this country will change direction because of that win. And whether that win is 270 or 290 electoral votes or more, whatever it is, it’s a win, it ousts Donald Trump from the White House and it puts our country on a chance to heal and to move forward again. That’s what Biden and Harris ran on. That’s what they’re offering. That’s what they’re going to deliver.”

    WTH!?!?!?! 🤬🤬🤬 So as with President Obama, Turtle is planning to be obstructive in a Biden administration.

    The GOP appears likely to hold onto their Senate majority, although President Donald Trump may lose the White House, and McConnell is signaling that he plans to interfere with Biden’s ability to staff his cabinet, reported Axios.

    “A source close to McConnell tells Axios a Republican Senate would work with Biden on centrist nominees but no ‘radical progressives’ or ones who are controversial with conservatives,” the website reported.

    That could force Biden to stay away from Stacey Abrams, Susan Rice and Sally Yates, according to sources who suggested centrist Lael Brainard for Treasury or Tony Blinken for State — both of whom served with the former vice president in the Obama administration.

      And stop wishing/longing for white males to come back. They want to look like and be like republicans. The only reason democrats have any wins is because of Black voters, the women in particular. Stacey Abrams shook off her disappointment and went to work to expand the electorate in the centuries long tradition of abused and dismissed Black women getting back up to fight for her family and community more than herself because she can see and envision a better future and knows that it will only come about by working for it.
