Here’s a thought,
the House should propose a bill that only registered Democrats’ ballots can be counted…
–oh, and another outlawing the SCOTUS.
Laws, laws, laws. Lots, and lots of proposed laws. This could get giggly fun.

This would wipe out a lot of military votes especially those stationed overseas. But course we know what he thinks of soldiers; he wants to disenfranchise his idea of “losers”.

This sort of crap is something one has to have some age to appreciate as moral and political standards-not that they were never that high in empire USA- have significantly declined since the '60’s and '70’s. Even Nixon would have never tried this and he did some bad ass stuff. It seems that no Machiavellian political tricks are unacceptable now. I remember when the biggest question was whether the country would elect a Catholic, Kennedy. Now you can be a multi divorcee, womanizer, fraud, multi bankruptcy filing businessman who stiffed his vendors and started a fake university; and still become Potus-and still be in danger(to us) of being reelected.

The democrats lack of action over what is unfolding rapidly with the republicans is making it more and more difficult for people like me who came to the decision to vote for the gut wrenching, nauseating candidate, Biden.

And there’s this news:

“Democratic lawmakers have drafted a bill that, if passed, would limit the tenures of Supreme Court justices on the bench to just 18 years.”

What an f—ing cruel joke.
We probably won’t be here in 18 years. This is all they can do now in the midst of a clear attempt at a coup d’etat?

There has got to be an attorney or 2 or 3 or 100 who could use U.S Code595 (below) against most of the republicans including Donald drumpf, Mitch M. and this POS featured in picture with article.

18 U.S. Code § 595.Interference by administrative employees of Federal, State, or Territorial Governments

Let us recall that before Scott became a politician, he was the CEO of a health insurer called “HealthSouth.” While in that position, his company was indicted for perpetrating the largest Medicare fraud to date.

Naturally, he became governor and now a senator (so to speak).

“Corruption” scarcely begins to describe people like this.

The conspiracy is already deeper and more sinister than ever, but with Trump’s personal Court a very likely final outcome. Trump will tie up Democrat State victories in Court, for delay’s sake. Then with the election results unresolved he will invoke the twelfth amendment, which gives the matter back to Congress, as electoral votes ARE ONE FOR EACH STATE, which gives advantage back to Trump the chump. If you are not already terrified you are derelict. This country needs four more years of the orange sloth like it it needs offshoring and another pandemic. The only possible counter move is for every Democrat and Independent to take to the streets and refuse to go along with ANOTHER REPUBLICAN VOTE RIGGED ELECTION RESULT. This will be dangerous, but necessary since Trump supporters will bring out their guns.

There is no possible happy ending to a Trump Presidency.

How poignant the caption picture, two known criminals shaking hands. Discussing ballot stealing.

Scott the medicare swindler and Trump … this site has a 250,000 word limit
or so. Not enough space to list Trump’s crimes against humanity not to mention
civil crimes.

Let’s be honest. The venerated US Constitution itself provides the road to our collapse.
A Senate. An electoral college. Not enough clearly delineated checks on executive power.

Things fall apart.

I believe anyone complicit in agreeing to not count every vote, must be arrested for election interference.

Hi SkepticTank:
But, but the rest of Yeats poem;;;;;THE CENTER CANNOT HOLD. mere anarchy is loosed upon the world." That’s Trump’s aim.
But, you know, if Florida is going to cheat by adding a TIME element–so that votes would not be counted after 48 hours-----LOL, I am sure that many people would be willing to have the power go out all over Florida. : )

The military may have been in charge since at least 1963.

The thing you call ‘the dupoly’ is nice cover.

No surprise it’s Mr. Medicare fraud. There are a lot of stupid people moving to Florida. How did Scott become governor and was re-elected governor? He stole the Senate seat from Nelson. He should have stepped down as governor once he announced his intent to run for the Senate position. He did not allow the recounts in Broward and Palm Beach counties which are primarily Democratic. He is a rich, self-absorbed jerk just like Trump and I’m sure he has thoughts of the presidency. These Republicans are out of control and I see no one stepping up to stop them.

Who was it said: ‘A republic - if you can keep it ?’

They did their best at the time.

This is our time - to do our best, and you can see, we all can see, how hard that is !

I think all of these highly visible provocations are just that.

Either the game is up or it is not.

Someone is trying to lead people to think - and then to react in fact - to panic, and do something stupid…

Don’t play their game -

There is a remedy to this coup in process. A Republican senatorial candidate from Nevada proposed it several years ago, and no republicans found it beyond the pale.

The only remedy to an ongoing coup is a 2nd Amendment Remedy. In this particular circumstance, the remedy must be applied prior to the election, and it involves multiple different politicians and appointees.

All that is needed for evil to triumph is for God to do NOTHING to stop Trump.
