Something to think about…

So there is much discussion of Trump and the election results. But there is another, equally pressing question: Will Democrats accept the results of the election if Joe Biden loses? A new report suggests the answer could be no.

Full article, HERE from the Washington Examiner.

The members are largely ‘anonymous’ but you can read some of their background ‘rationale’ below…

The Transition Integrity Project (TIP)1 was launched in late 2019 out of concern that the Trump Administration may seek to manipulate, ignore, undermine or disrupt the 2020 presidential election and transition process. TIP takes no position on how Americans should cast their votes, or on the likely winner of the upcoming election; either major party candidate could prevail at the polls in November without resorting to “dirty tricks.” However, the administration of President Donald Trump has steadily undermined core norms of democracy and the rule of law and embraced numerous corrupt and authoritarian practices. This presents a profound challenge for those – from either party – who are committed to ensuring free and fair elections, peaceful transitions of power, and stable administrative continuity in the United States.

A .pdf of the report can be downloaded HERE.

Remember, if this goes to Jan 20, 2021 without a winner, Nancy Pelosi becomes the ‘interim’ president until one is chosen. Buyer beware…


Hmmm… — 20 Comments

  1. I didn’t realize Nancy Pelosi could become ‘interim’ president.


    • Yep. That whole succession thing. Pres to VP to Speaker to…

      At the end of Obama’s reign of terror, I think it was the only thing keeping him and Biden alive.

      Well, and conservatives and rightwingers don’t have the history of assassination that the Democrats and leftwingers have.

      (Oh, yeah, got into that discussion with someone on another forum, he was all butthurt that I made much the same statement, then I provided a list of political assassinations in the US and the party affiliations/political leanings of said assassins, all Dems or Commies or Socialists, all. I won because he called me names like NAZI, which, of course, being the jerk I am, I had to point out to the pea-brained idiot that real NAZIs are socialists…)

  2. If Donald Trump promises that he will behave as well as the last Presidential candidate who lost the last election, they will lose their minds. Looking at you Hillary !

  3. Since the (D) didn’t accept the 2016 election, it’s a safe bet that if Trump is reelected, they won’t accept it either.

    • It will be whomever is the Speaker of the House at the time the crisis occurs. So, maybe SanFranNan. Hopefully we’ll have a new speaker that is a tad more conservative than her.

    • BtRF – bingo – if ‘princess’ were to not get re-elected (maybe not likely but possible) she would no longer be speaker. All members of the new CONgress would already have been sworn by the time the inauguration of POTUS takes place.

  4. “TIP takes no position on how Americans should cast their votes, … However, the administration of President Donald Trump has steadily undermined core norms of democracy and the rule of law”

    Yeah, right. Totally impartial and neutral. The epitome of non-partisanship.

  5. JMI- Yep!

    jrg- Note that they aren’t talking about that… sigh

    Grog- Oh yeah, unintended consequences…

    TXRed- Of course not.

    Bob- Not sure, depends on when congress reconvenes.

    Hereso- Heh, you noticed that too.

  6. Yeah, funny that. Find me an election where a non-democrat hung on, suing and filing and suing in order to keep the counts going so his/her/its side can accidentally find more ballots somewhere else or lose huge numbers of military ballots (cough, GORE, cough.) (ahhh, chooo Kerry, snort.)

    Then there’s the Tank Abrams in Georgia who still hasn’t conceded.




    They said the same thing on the night he won, that he wouldn’t accept losing. He didn’t. Because he won.

    I was really surprised that Hillary actually conceded on election night. Was all ready for another year or two of recounting and losing and finding ballots.

    This year… I dunno. Thankfully we have the Electoral College to help cushion us from the voter fraud that is already beginning to rear its ugly head. Funny that even in the Primaries the Donks have to resort to widespread fraud and shenanigans to get their ‘annointed’ candidates elected.

  7. Hey Old NFO;

    I was reading your blogpost and then reading the comments especially Beans, and he has a point, Stacey Abrams Tank still is running her shadow government in exile in Hollywood right waiting to return to the shores of Georgia in a huge Blue wave of Victory…or some crap like that…Well anyway. For President Trump to Win convincingly, he has to win in a landslide so there is no chance of a “close” one so the democrats can do their favorite court challenges and “find” ballots here, and there…and over there….and over there…and over there….in areas that are “blue” and always somehow miraculously vote for Biden…..Miracles…you know… But the American Public is getting really tired of the stupidity of the hardcore donks and if the riots and temper tantrums get too bad this time, the silent majority will do something about it. Remember the white helmets in New York, they got tired of another hippie protest and flag burning and just started whipping Hippie ass? It was in 1970/1971 I believe? the average American was by this point just fed up with the bullshit.

  8. The only reason Hillary conceded in 2016 is they were so certain of her victory they didn’t prepare for her loss. (Never believe your own propaganda. You’ll end up in a bunker covered in cement dust).
    This year the Biden campaign has over 600 lawyers waiting in the wings. I fear 20 Jan. 2017 was the last peaceful transition of our Republic.
    Smarter Half and I plan on being deep in Dixie come Election Day. And no, I don’t have nearly enough ammo. None of us do.

  9. Are we about to break down as a country? All too conceivable. After all, the Left didn’t accept the last election.

    Let’s hope it doesn’t get bloody.

  10. Check on the President pro-tem of the Senate. If the House is unable to sit, or if an election is delayed for ‘public health’, there’s no Speaker.

  11. As opposed to the administration of Obama with their scandal of the month. Including investigations into Trump before Inauguration Day.
