    I bet he hopes the ground would just swallow him up.

    Not that we'd complain if it did.

    Will one of the lawsuits actually go through? Will they somehow convince enough faithless electors?

    I just want it to be over... can it please be over already?!
    Don't worry, everything will be okay Demon Rin. Just breath slowly. Take a break from the news/Twitter/etc till 20 Jan. 2021. I would recommend some anxiety-reducing coping skills that can help with stress. I struggle with bad anxiety too, and I have been trying to avoid the news for my mental health, though it is hard. Make sure to take care of you and your well-being. Just remember everything will be okay, it really will.

    Here are some distress tolerance skills you can use that can help you Demon Rin, my therapist gave me this to help, and I think it can help you too:

    Also apparently not conceding in elections you lost isn’t only for Trump.

    These people are beyond stupid.
    It's not about being stupid, it's about people starting to believe in alternate realities. And this won't end well when our reality and theirs will come to clash.
    The GOP going along with this shit is not good at all. But at least 80% of Americans seem to believe Biden won according to a poll, so it could be worse.

    "The election was rigged with fake ballots, but only the ones for president. The ones for House and Senate are real. Even if they share the same piece of paper." - GOP logic, 2020.
    We joke that the Simpsons predicted this or that, but the sad reality is that we allowed our society (worldwide) to become more of a parody than a freaking adult cartoon.

    The Proud Boys are in the middle of an internal Civil War after a leadership shakeup, one of the old leaders took back over and decided he's sick and tired of pretending they aren't Nazis.

    Remember, these are the guys our Lame Duck "President" just told to "Stand back and stand by" in one of the debates.

    History of calling the election for president (minus 2016 and 2020):


    Note: Republicans used to be labeled as blue and Democrats as red, it was not what it was what we use today till the 2000 election I believe.

    The potential coup probably has like a 1% chance of success maybe, but that's still enough for me to lose sleep over it... plus as others have said the longer this nonsense goes on the more the institutions and democracy get eroded. On the one hand Biden not taking it seriously could be good in that it lends no credence to the coup. He wants to combat polarisation but I wonder how much that's possible if 70% of republicans already think the election wasn't free and fair, meaning Biden's an illegitimate president. I would've preferred a golden middle ground; "yes, there is an attempt at a coup but it's a very incompetent one and as your president I won't allow it so don't worry about a thing". Though maybe it really is best to not give it any attention so it and republican fervor blows over. Hopefully the Biden administration has a concrete, realistic plan to protect the institutions and stop polarisation. Being nice to the GOP doesn't cut it. There's some good news so far regarding the polarisation part.
    What really needs to happen though is for the dems to hold the GOP's feet to the fire and tell them to denounce Trump's actions. They need to tie the other republicans to Trump to force them to pick a side. Right now they're half-heartedly siding with Trump to save their asses while still giving them room to wash their hands of him later. Every GOP senator partaking in and getting away with this is more institutions eroded and another obstructionist in congress 2 years later. The dems can't seem to make anything stick to republicans and that needs to change.

    These are the people that reserved the four seasons landscaping parking lot instead of the hotel. They're not competent enough to pull off a coup. Because they had the setup to DO IT and no one would have known.

    If Trump hadn't openly demonized the mail in votes and then split the voters? Because studies months already showed Dems were going to do 65% mail in and Reps 65% walk in anyway.... which is why Trump started attacking mail ins in the first place. If they'd just seen that stat, and kept it close to their vest? but still appointed Dejoy in May.

    Then, instead of Dejoy breaking everything immediately all at once, where it was obviously sabotage and everyone could see that, prepare for it, and work around it.... what if he had done all the things he did, but slowly? So it seemed like incompetence, rather than intentional destruction? Or what if he'd done it in mid-October instead of mid-August, so there was no time to figure out they were doing that and come up with ways to avoid the problem?

    That would have been subtle and they would have succeeded. (Also it wouldn't lead to the discrepencies where like 80% of remaining votes are one sided and so you can math out a winner easier) But Trump had to rant constantly about undependable mail in ballots and Dejoy had to do his sabotage all at once so everyone caught on.

    They had a legitimate(albeit evil) plan that would have actually WORKED if they'd just kept quiet about it. But they couldn't help themselves and they're just not that subtle or clever.


    Or you know, Trump could have handed Covid over to scientists and been an actual leader during a crisis and got a bump like ever other world leader handling it and he would have easily won legitly, if he was able to get this many people to go for him even after everything.


    Same thing now. ""Well what if they send in illegal electors?" Well, by broadcasting that plan, its covered. And Dem states are the ones choosing whats important, so its not happening.

    "Trump won't concede and give Biden any funds!" Well duh. Biden (and everyone) knew that in advance, that's why Biden put together his transition team months ago.


    I know its scary and dangerous to see these loons still spouting shit, but by announcing their plans so loudly in advance they just make them that much easier to deal with. They don't have the support of the military, and they don't have enough of the population, (including the rest of the world) and too many people know the election results are legit, for them to get away with anything. Trump is desperate because he knows he's fucked when its over, so he'll do anything and everything he can, and they're trying to fleece money and make last minute power plays while they can, but they're not going to pull off a coup by overturning 150,000 votes in multiple states or lining up nearly 40 faithless electors from Dem states (who have to announce in advance if they're going to change.)

    https://whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday...1/11/day-1392/

    Day 1392: "Covid hell."

    Spoiler:
    1/ U.S. COVID-19 hospitalizations reached an all-time high of 61,964, as new daily cases passed 139,000 for the first time. The previous record for hospitalizations was 59,780 on April 12. The U.S., meanwhile, recorded more than 1 million new coronavirus cases in the past 10 days and is averaging more than 111,000 new cases a day – a record. More than 1,440 new deaths were also reported, pushing the the seven-day average to more than 1,000 new deaths a day for the first time since August 19. Public health experts, meanwhile, warn that the U.S. is heading for a “dark winter,” a “Covid hell,” and the “darkest days of the pandemic” – aka the next few months of the coronavirus pandemic will be unlike anything the nation has seen yet. (New York Times / CNBC / The Guardian / Bloomberg / Wall Street Journal / Washington Post)
    • Two more people who attended Trump’s Election Night party at the White House have been diagnosed with the coronavirus, bringing the current tally of COVID-19 cases from the event to at least five. (CNBC)
    • 😷 Dept. of “We Have It Totally Under Control.”

    • Global: Total confirmed cases: ~51,927,000; deaths: ~1,281,000
    • U.S.: Total confirmed cases: ~10,362,000; deaths: ~241,000
    • Source: Johns Hopkins University
    • Live Blogs: New York Times / Washington Post / USA Today / CNBC
    2/ Election officials in 45 states representing both political parties said there was no evidence of voter fraud or irregularities. State officials and secretaries of state in four of the five remaining states reported no major voting issues. Officials in Texas did not respond when asked whether they suspected or had evidence of illegal voting. (New York Times)3/ A Pennsylvania postal worker admitted that he fabricated the allegations that a postmaster instructed postal workers to backdate ballots mailed after Election Day. Richard Hopkins told investigators from the U.S. Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General that the allegations of widespread voting irregularities were not true, and he signed an affidavit recanting his claims. Hopkins’s claim was cited by Lindsey Graham in a letter to the Justice Department calling for a federal investigation. Attorney General William Barr subsequently authorized federal prosecutors to investigate credible allegations of voting irregularities and fraud before results are certified. The Trump campaign also cited Hopkins’s allegation in a federal lawsuit seeking to prevent Pennsylvania election officials from certifying the states’ results. (Washington Post)
    • Georgia will conduct a statewide hand recount of ballots cast in the election amid baseless accusations of election fraud from Republicans. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said the hand recount, which will likely be both less accurate than a machine recount and more costly, “will help build confidence.” Meanwhile, Georgia’s Lieutenant Gov. Geoff Duncan, a Republican, said there have not been “any sort of substantial instances” of voter fraud in the state. (NPR / CNBC / CBS News / CNN)
    • The Trump campaign filed another lawsuit in Michigan challenging the election results over alleged irregularities, seeking to stop the state from certifying results that show Biden leading by about 146,000 votes. (Bloomberg)
    4/ The Office of the Director of National Intelligence won’t provide Biden with intelligence reports until the General Services Administration recognizes that Biden won the election. GSA chief Emily Murphy has yet to sign the letter of “ascertainment,” which allows Biden’s transition team to begin the transfer of power. As a result, Biden is not receiving the President’s Daily Brief and it’s not clear whether any of his top advisers are getting access to any classified material at all. (NBC News / New York Times)
    5/ Trump made his first public appearance in six days to visit Arlington National Cemetery for a ceremony commemorating Veterans Day. He did not speak at the event. Trump’s official schedule has been devoid of public events since Biden surpassed the 270 electoral votes. (Associated Press / CNN)
    6/ Trump named three loyalists to top Pentagon jobs a day after firing Defense Secretary Mark Esper. James Anderson, who had been acting undersecretary for policy, resigned and was replaced by Anthony Tata, a retired Army one-star general and former Fox News commentator who failed to get through Senate confirmation earlier this year. Joseph Kernan, a retired Navy vice admiral, stepped down as undersecretary for intelligence, and was replaced by Ezra Cohen-Watnick, who becomes acting undersecretary for intelligence. Trump also named Christopher Miller as defense chief. (Associated Press)

    poll/ 86% of Trump voters don’t think Biden legitimately won the election, but can’t provide any evidence to support the claim. (Washington Post)
