2020: Trump did NOT concede. The GSA administrator agreed to allow Joe Biden to have some money for his transition team.

2020: With only two weeks left until the safe-harbor deadline on Dec. 8, Trump’s campaign and a handful of Republican groups are litigating more than a dozen active post-election cases in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, and Nevada. Some of the cases already moving up the judicial pyramid.

It’s funny how we’re all supposedly such horrible racists, but I swear to you, NONE of us hated Barack Obama the way these people hate Donald Trump.

BONGINO: CLICK to hear Dan’s plan for taking back the nation.

CALIFORNIA: [1:47] – Gov. Jackboot Newsom has ordered 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. Curfew in 41 counties. In Huntington Beach, unhappy Golden Staters began a protest at exactly at 10 pm.

GEORGIA: Third recount coming up – “President Trump and his campaign continue to insist on an honest recount in Georgia, which has to include signature matching and other vital safeguards. Without signature matching, this recount would be a sham and again allow for illegal votes to be counted,” the statement continued. “If there is no signature matching, this would be as phony as the initial vote count and recount. Let’s stop giving the People false results. There must be a time when we stop counting illegal ballots. Hopefully it is coming soon.” – Trump campaign

HOUSING BOOM: “This is a really odd time to be having a ‘housing boom.’ We are in the middle of the worst public health crisis in 100 years, endless civil unrest has been ravaging many of our largest cities, and we are experiencing the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s. But even though more than 70 million Americans have filed new claims for unemployment benefits this year, home sales are absolutely rocking.” – Michael Snyder

MEDIA POLL: They took the poll at their office, with a box by the water cooler. Almost half the staff voted twice.

ROADRUNNER: tooted, “There is so much panic out there right now. ‘Why hasn’t Trump declassified? Have they got something on him?’ ‘This Venezuela / Dominion angle is misinformation!’ ‘The Trump legal effort is disorganized! They’re going to lose!’ CALM DOWN. Trump is letting the process play out. If that leads to victory, great. If not, Trump will move onto his next plan. If that doesn’t work, he will have another one. Chillax.”

I responded, “I was thinking about this today and how people have been complaining for ages that Barr is supposedly useless, Durham is taking too long, Democrats never pay any penalty. But if Trump has been playing a long game, expecting massive voter fraud and having the goods to take down the swamp critters for real, it seems to me that he wouldn’t want to alert them. I mean, if you’re trying to get a whole herd of wild horses to run into a box canyon, you don’t jump out and spook them before they’re well past the point of no return. Right?”

VOTE TOTALS: says the numbers above (provided by AP) are statistically impossible. If I understand his argument correctly, the total of the vote counts is reportedly 156,379,611.

However, 51.1% of that number = 79,887,851.9995 while 47.2% of that number = 73,814,487.9993.

Since we each get ONE vote, there is no reason whatsoever for a vote total to be anything other than a round number.

Well … not unless the “built in feature, not a bug” Dominion software was programmed to assign each Biden vote 1 plus a fraction, while assigning each Trump vote 1 minus a fraction.

BTW, in 2014, Andrew Gelman wrote at WaPo that the Syrian election totals were obviously fraudulent … FOR THE EXACT SAME REASON.

WAR: “We are in a war. It is a conflict that began nearly fifty years ago when the street revolutionaries of the Sixties joined the Democrat Party. Their immediate goal was to help the Communist enemy win the war in Vietnam, but they stayed to expand their influence in the Democrat Party and create the radical force that confronts us today. The war that today’s Democrats are engaged in reflects the values and methods of those radicals. It is a war against us – against individual freedom, against America’s constitutional order, and against the capitalist engine of our prosperity.” – David Horowitz

GRAMMY NOTES: Thank you for prayers. Dearest did great with his venogram and is back to work. 🙂 Earlier today, I had to go to the DMV to get a non-driver photo ID. I’ve been home-bound/disabled and not safe behind the wheel for decades, so when my last driver’s license expired, I let it. Until recently, it didn’t matter that I had no photo ID, but somebody changed a rule. Now, one of the very rare things I actually have to leave the house to do (blood work) requires photo ID, so I HAD to go.

Way back in the olden days when I got my original driver’s license and then when I got married and changed my last name, nobody cared that my birth certificate says “Mary Christine.” My parents named me that in the hospital, but when they brought me home, my older sibs said yuck and voted for Christine Ann. So I was baptized Christine Ann and I have always been Chrissy or Christine Ann, except for the first day of school each year and the occasional visit to some official personage in college. ALL of my various accounts and cards say “Christine.”

But, for some reason, New York State has decided the first name on the original birth certificate is the one that matters. Lance (who was very nice!) had to consult his boss who decided the easiest thing to do was create my non-driver ID as Christine Ann, then do a name change! So it cost me $5 extra to NOT have my name the way I prefer. ::sigh:: And I have to contact the Board of Elections to have my registration changed, since the NYS computers have recorded a name change. ::sigh::

This Mary Something was common among Catholics when I was a kid. On the first day of junior high (multiple elementary schools blended so we didn’t all know one another), the teacher was reading our legal names and asking what we preferred to be called. Mary (Chrissy). Mary (Eileen). Mary (Peggy). Mary … everyone paused to hear what SHE liked to called and, sadly, that MARY was very shy and hated having everyone look at her while she said, very quietly, “Mary?”
