    And the walking back of the "official" date of reinstatement of Trump has begun. Pretty soon, they will have to pay Blizzard for using Soon™.

    I thought the current plan was to win the house and put Trump as speaker of the house and then somehow that makes him president.

    Of course. Sigh. It's like with the dates when the world is supposed to end. Which is kinda fitting, now that I think about it.

    The nation’s top military leaders discussed a plan to resign one by one rather than carry out dangerous orders in the event of an attempted coup by then-President Donald Trump and his allies after the November election, new book reveals https://t.co/9hcd6a0ziw
    https://twitter.com/CNNPolitics/stat...414875650?s=19

    So military leaders actually believed their might be a attempted coup. Well January 6th,was a coup yet likely no other time this was planned out before Trump.
    Democrats are the best! I will never ever question a Democrat again. I LOVE the Democrats!

    To this day, I wonder if Russia/Putin has buyer's remorse. They went through a lot of effort to help Trump win. Was it worth it?

    Yeah I was willing to believe that in the 2016 election, but not in the 2020 election.

    I think you meant to say "Pence was lucky he wasn't lynched by the mob Trump sent to kill him".

    They became a cult after his election.

    I mean it certainly caused consternation within the US, but Russia seems to perennially forget to actually make itself a better country while bringing others down.

    We’ve booted trump out, and God willing he stays booted, but… is Russia any significantly better off or different than it was in 2016?

    Colorado we do basically the entirety of our voting via Mailed Ballots and have automatic voter registration through the department of motor vehicles. We had around an 85% turnout rate in 2020. So don't try to compare Colorado Voting Laws with Georgia's.

    I haven't had to go physically vote for years, the ballot just shows up at my home, I mark my votes and return it to a vote drop box.

    People didn't want something different. Trump got the same number of votes Romney did if you account for population growth. Dem voters didn't want to show up for Hillary.

    Shhhhh no one tell @TexasRules that multiple states and countries have done mail in voting for years, even primarily mail in voting, with minimal to no fraud even before the pandemic. He's too busy self owning.

    I see TexasLies is back in fine form. Your bolded is incorrect, a lie. Let us know if you bother doing the research to link something. We'll wait.

    In which Trump's own "commission" on voter fraud found nothing. NOTHING.

    WADR, that doesn't disprove my point.

    Dems didn't;t come out for Hillary because she was another typical politician. The votes Trump got, from the independents, were protest votes because of the Dens putting up Hillary. Nothing about Trump's platform was centrist or independent. It was batshit crazy and many people used their vote like a firecracker meant to shake things up. Once he was elected and openly embraced racism and nationalism, then the people turned into cultists.

    I know @Bodakane and @Poopymonster responded, but I like this one the best. The US spent three years in increasing gridlock and chaos, then COVID. And Russia is still in the same place as before: scrambling for the oil industry and treated as a pariah internationally. Trump wanted Russia back in G8 and that faied.

    The results were not well hidden.

    Also, you and @cubby both left out the part where one of the members was arrested, and one of them died.

    Hid and attempted to destroy, if reports are to be believed.

    Sure, but 600,000+ dead and the country is about as close to being fully destabilized as ever, outside the Civil War. The Biden election didn't take us out of the storm.
