Trump joined Texas and over a dozen other states in an attempt to overthrow the certified election results in Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. The Supreme Court denied their case, citing the fact that they do not have the standing to complain about how other states run their elections.
The Electoral College seals Trump’s fate
The Electoral College officially declared Joe Biden the winner of this year’s presidential election, giving him a 306 to 232 victory over Donald Trump.
Many of us remember how often Trump touted his victory against Hillary Clinton in 2016, dubbing it a “landslide.” Oh, how the tables have turned.
Joe Biden butchers another speech
After the results were finalized, Joe Biden stepped forward to address the nation. In his speech, he pointed out the ridiculousness of the President’s behavior and his failure to concede.
Although his statements were true, it was difficult to listen to–not because of what he had to say, but because of how many times he had to clear his throat.
Three in five believe Trump won
Quinnipac University conducted a poll, revealing that over 75% of Republicans allege fraud in this election and 60% do not accept the results.
The other day, we walked around and asked people who won. We’re pretty certain Quinnipac’s poll is legit:
Biden won. Get over it.
Michigan GOP congressman, Paul Mitchell, is retiring soon. Before doing so, however, he has come forward to announce his departure from the Republican Party, citing the fact that they continue to deny the official results of the election.
He compares us to a “third-world nation,” expressing how absurd it is that we “incite distrust of something so basic as the sanctity of our vote.”
With about a month to go, a Fox News poll shows that 20% of Americans believe that Trump will go down as “one of the greatest presidents in American history.”
So many refuse to accept his loss that they have shown up to D.C. to protest the results in a “Stop the Steal” protest.
Proud Boys and others were met with counter-protests led by Black Lives Matter as well as individuals who identify as Antifa.
So far, even Vladimir Putin has publicly acknowledged the results. Move on, snowflake.
Bill Barr resigns
William Barr, current Attorney General, has submitted his resignation, stating that he will be leaving his post before Christmas to spend the holidays with his family.
This decision was most likely made to avoid termination by Biden and his administration in the months ahead, though some speculate that he was forced to do so after pointing out that there is not enough fraud to overturn Biden’s victory.
Federal executions continue
Federal executions resumed under the Trump administration, and as a result, Brandon Bernard was put to death via lethal injection.
Decades ago, Bernard and his friend asked a couple for a ride. After the couple agreed to help, he and his friend forced them into their own trunk at gunpoint. For hours, they drove around the area, pawning items and attempting to use the couple’s credit cards.
Eventually, Bernard and his associate exited the vehicle and proceeded to shoot them both in the head, light the car on fire, and leave the scene.
Speaking of murderers, the Zodiac Killer’s message, which was sent to the San Francisco Chronicle in 1969, has allegedly been deciphered. The statement reads:
“I hope you are having lots of fun in trying to catch me that wasnt me on the TV show which brings up a point about me I am not afraid of the gas chamber because it will send me to paradice all the sooner because I now have enough slaves to work for me where everyone else has nothing when they reach paradice so they are afraid of death I am not afraid because I know that my new life is life will be an easy one in paradice death.”
Person of the Year
Biden and Harris were named “Person of the Year” by TIME Magazine.
According to Edward Felsenthal, they were given this title for “changing the American story, for showing that the forces of empathy are greater than the furies of division, for sharing a vision of healing in a grieving world.”
Whatever that means.
Cuomo could be future AG
For some reason, Emmy award winning failure of a New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was floated as a possible Attorney General pick.
Cuomo himself brushed the idea off, saying that he does not plan on being a part of Biden’s administration.
Still no second stimulus
Speaking of failures to deal with COVID-19, Congress still hasn’t passed a second round of direct payments, prompting Bernie Sanders and other prominent progressive politicians to vocally oppose it, demanding the needs of the public be met.
On a side note, mutations of the coronavirus have been discovered, sparking concerns about the future.
Conservatives reach out to AOC
Steven Schmidt, a co-founder of the Lincoln Project and a #NeverTrump conservative, reached out to AOC for support, showing how willing people are to break away from two-party politics. It may not be much, but it’s something.
Black lives still matter
The FBI is currently investigating the death of Casey Goodson, who was shot while entering his home. Police say he was waving a gun, but his family says it was a Subway sandwich.
Hopefully President-elect Joe Biden will address this obvious problem with our “justice” system, but the past paints a different picture.
Woman hits BLM protesters with her car
A woman in New York drove into a crowd, running into people who were protesting systemic racism and police brutality.
Although some were injured, no one was killed. The suspect is currently in custody.
Gun control is bogus
Kamala Harris has repeatedly supported “common sense” gun control laws and demonized “assault weapons.”
Here she is again:
If you didn’t already know it, we do not support gun control.
Break up big tech
The FTC is in the process of suing Facebook and others for violating antitrust laws. While it could take years to be resolved, this is certainly a step in the right direction.
These companies have repeatedly emulated their competitors’ products and even purchased their businesses outright in order to create blatant monopolies. It’s past time to step in.
More security breaches
A cybersecurity company used by federal, state, and local governments reported that it was hacked and that the perpetrators used its tools to breach the security of the Treasury department and others for at least a month.
They accuse Russia of being behind the attacks.
The U.S. sanctions Turkey
The US sanctioned Turkey after they purchased a Russian missile defense system. Turkey says the sanctions are hypocritical because Greece, who is also a member of NATO, uses a Russian missile system.
They say that the choice to purchase from Russia was made after being turned down by the U.S.
