I am continually amused by you thinking that a party controlled by a member of the one percent of the one percent is somehow a fighter against elites. (His tax cuts certainly show whose side he is on.)

The Trumpers are getting pummeled. I almost feel sorry for them.
They are into "Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail" territory now.

Correct. Apparently Colin Powell is the first of them considered by Biden. If Biden get in, they will show up. Why would the war profiteers care which side their clowns are hired by, a long as it back to business as usual ??

Not the entire system. Some are devoted to the glory that is trump.

To destroy him requires special folks, truly powerful types. Like his crack legal team lead by his buddy and personal lawyer Rudy.
Nobody has done him damage like them, and he will return the favor by throwing them under the bus when they aren't doing his divine will.

Absolutely hilarious. You do realize that Trump was not in favour of cutting the massive Military Industrial Complex Welfare system of massive subsidies. The military and war profiteers continued to be on the gravy train of federal monies in massive amounts. It was business has usual under Trump.

Trump of course used the office to help pass legislation that benefited other members of the 1 percent he is a part of. Certainly tax cuts and Environmental deregulation benefit profit margins of big corporations.

Meanwhile Trump continued the policy of full support for Saudi-Arabia's war in Yemen. Trump like the Bush family is very good friends with Saudi Princes and the Saudi royal family. Trump has also continued the "War on Terror" and other crap.

Trump is a grifter. Such things has his refusal to put his money in a blind trust, thus raising the distinct possibility that he made political decisions based on its effects on his wealth. His use right now of fund raising for his legal challenges to pay off his election debt to say nothing of his history of dubious business practice are all pare for the course for a grifter.

The idea of Trump, liar, distorter, unhinged conspiracy theory loony tune, has been unfairly targeted by elites / media is hilarious. He is his own worst enemy. You mentioned a couple of times Noam Chomsky in the past. You are aware Noam Chomsky has little but utter contempt for Trump who he views has a fool.

By the way I am a Canadian and so could not vote in the last election in the USA. Us Canadians have a huge chip on our shoulder about the USA and the past 4 years have been very entertaining. Trump has given us here so much entertainment and helped to massively increase Canadian smugness in relation to the USA. Laughing at Trump and the US voters for electing him have been very enjoyable. So there is a measure of sadness here that the circus down south is ending and will not last another four years.

Feeling smug and superior is however not a worthy emotion and I for one am glad that, that particular excuse for that is no longer operational.

He’s in good company, Joseph Stalin was nominated twice: in 1945 and again in 1948, Benito Mussolini was nominated in 1935 and Adolf Hitler was nominated in 1939.

Meanwhile, Biden's lead in the popular vote just went past 6 million; he's less than 200,000 short of 80 million votes.

Ah, he’s just a loser like the rest of them. Any lickspittle minion can nominate, the committee just didn’t bother accepting any of these nominations from such losers.

The anger at Fox News was not only focused on Perino, however, as reporter Kristin Fisher was also slammed for saying much of what Giuliani presented at the press conference Thursday was “simply not true.” Host Tucker Carlson felt the ire of viewers as well after he called on Powell to prove the allegations she had made, and during a segment on “The Five,” Geraldo Rivera slapped down his co-host Jesse Watters who delivered a straightforward assessment of the presser.

Rove was also under fire for his heated reaction to the Trump legal team during his appearance on Perino’s show.

“These are serious and I think, somewhat, strange accusations,” he told the Fox News host, adding that Giuliani and Powell have “an obligation to go to court and prove them.”

“They have an obligation to go to court and prove these or the American people will have every reason to question their credibility,” Rove added, echoing the strange criticisms from others who seem to think the press conference was a dumping ground of information and no legal follow-through is planned.

“So, I’m not going to say that they don’t have proof. But they better come up with proof and go to court because these are serious allegations that basically say our election was manipulated by a combination of foreign and domestic actors and stolen,” Rove said. “That cannot be left just simply out there is it needs to be either proved or withdrawn.”

Karl Rove attempts to put the toothpaste back in the tube that he squeezed and squeezed and squeezed.

Karl Rove and Dana Perino are defending Dominion on Fox right now.

He didn't have to start or join a war... (he's at war with his own country), but it wasn't for lack of trying.

PS: he tried to bomb a nuclear plant in Iran when he lost the election, and was talked out of it by the Joint Chiefs et al. I remind you that this is the same Iran that was signed to the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action). You would know it as the US/Iran nuclear deal; the deal that Trump stupidly pulled out of, allowing Iran to attempt to potentially develop Nuclear Weapons.

Trump is stupid and incompetent, and may very well have handed a potential enemy the chance to make nukes.

Trump arm sales

* $2.2 billion arms sales to Taiwan.

As far as I know, there were no official nominations. I doubt he even made it to a short list. A few yahoos tweeting about how Trump should get the Nobel Prize does not necessarily count as a nomination.

No, he didn't, and a nomination can be made by any one of hundreds of thousands of people. The latest one was by a far-right Norwegian MP. The Nobel Prize Committee says quite categorically that a nomination does not mean an endorsement or acceptance of that nomination in any official sense.

  • How do the people who defeated ISIS on the ground feel about the soldiers they lost with Trump cut, ran, and betrayed these same Kurds on the battlefield?
  • BBC: How are other allies feeling about the erratic decision to draw down troops in Afghanistan without consultation or fair logistical warning?
  • Hasn't that decision immediately led to higher conflict and civilian casualties, now that the US presence is zero detterent and provides zero motivation to engage in peace talks?
  • Russian bounties, anything done about that, even if lip service? No?
Somebody is Putin's lap dog, and so are all his utterly clueless, loser followers, witting or no. As planned, the USA has been swept from the board as a serious ally, leader, or even democratic inspiration. Impressive, indeed. Abject and wanton capitulation to bullies is now Brand GOP, as is picking on anyone merely polite, or not brandishing a weapon, as is their wont. Now the world will be getting in US face, as that is how past and future bullies are treated.

Biden voters, however, do all deserve a Nobel in noble.

Why is it so hard for you to accept the Trump just plain lost? Biden made Trump his bitch. He did the spanky dance on Trump. Trump never had an approval rating over 50 percent. He had no important successes in domestic or foreign policy. His handling of COVID-19 has been an abject failure. Why would expect him to win?

Please dont make this vaunted glorious bastion of calm level headed rational minds look like another lame pathetic fake skeptic circle jerks, where they bloviate and bluster in denial of the fact Sidney Powell's case might prove massive election fraud.

Stop pretending its over.

Giuliani and Powell's claims seem ridiculous so far. They have spoken about what they have, and none of it appears reasonable or even sane. Don't shoot the messenger.

Smart money does rule out that it will go to SCOTUS - or the stock market wouldn't be where it is.

Outside of television?

I can't recall any such accusation in anything except a local election until now.

Currently this is pie in the sky. Before you drag SCOTUS into this, let's see if there's even a case filed at all.

Time is running out. If Trump's legal dream team has something, it's hard to imagine what they're waiting for. As things stand, Trump lost. Biden will be inaugurated in January. You're saying a miracle could happen, but it's not unreasonable to expect that one won't.

I'm not sure if there's a typo in there, but no matter. In this case G&P's efforts appear to be a Keystone Cops kind of thing. Examples they've remarked on appear to be oddly weird and wrong. It really doesn't look good for them. This kind of mad, sweeping conspiracy stuff won't play well in a court.

I think it's reasonable to expect that it's over. Trump is just throwing crap against the wall, and has been doing so for some time.

looking at the election results it appears that has of now Biden has a lead of 6 million c. 36,000 votes over Trump. However a shift of just over c. 43,735 votes in three states, (Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin), to Trump giving him 37 more electoral votes for a total of 269!!. Or 1/2!! even though Biden would still have almost 6 million more votes and a popular majority of just over 51% with Trump still at just above 47%. And if Trump had also just a few thousand more votes in Nebraska he would have won all the electoral votes in Nebraska and the election with 270 electoral votes in this hypothetical!

Guys there is something wrong here.

....when someone makes an appeal to the Supreme Court from a lower court. Sidney Powell didn't even get that far.

You didn't even know that?

You might find this interesting

https://www.270towin.com/alternative...ation-methods/

It allows you to pick other possible ways of distributing EC votes, and then see what the results are.

Most of them change the results, but very few of change the outcome, ie., who get elected POTUS.

While I think popular vote is the best, most democratic way to elect a leader, Republicans would never agree to it because they would hardly ever get a candidate elected to POTUS that way.

IMO, Nebraska and Maine's (?) way of doing it would be the best achievable way; electoral collage votes allocated proportionally by popular vote in each state.

That's not how they do it. In those states, you get one vote for getting the highest number of votes in each congressional district, plus 2 votes for the overall highest in the state.

And in Maine, it isn't exactly a "highest number of votes". It's a majority, as determined by ranked choice, or instant runoff, rules.

It is still somewhat proportional; at least you can't have that ludicrous situation like you can in most other states where a candidate can win the overall vote in that state by one vote, and he/she gets all the electoral votes for that state

Again, that is still a form of proportionality, and better than winner takes all
