Looks like the latest news on Dominion is that they recieved $400,000,000 from China via cutouts including UBS in Switzerland.
"SEC filings: The parent company of Dominion Voting Systems received $400 million from an Investment Bank in Switzerland that is 75% owned by the Chinese government."
"“UBS Securities is a swiss investment bank which owns 24.99% of UBS Securities Co LTD, a Chinese Investment Bank. The remaining 75% of UBS Securities CO LTD is owned by the Chinese government,” states the report."

Oh, and Dominion is busy moving and "Muellerizing" their machines.

If we can't trust the election system I think the only way forward is to declare the Nov3 election null and void and we should have another election day fairly soon without the mail-in ballots. We can't go on as a united country if half the population doesn't trust that their votes are counted properly.

pat - how do you decide who you are going to ban and who you are going to let speak?? is it just as it looks - if someone has a radically different viewpoint then you, then you are not going to publish it? or?? thanks..

It was a fair election and it is not going to be called null and void. We don't have a unified country. You want to get rid of absentee or mail in ballots, I would like to see the end of the electoral college.

Why have so many other countries around the world, including virtually all of Europe, prohibited "electronic voting". We need to talk about this.

They rejected electronic voting the very same reasons we need to also immediately reject this form of voting - too easy to corrupt, which materially undermines the integrity of elections. What did Europe do, and when did they do it once they discovered their own fatal electronic voting flaws?

We, the birthplace of modern participatory governance, must do far better than this current quagmire which threatens our very future.

Attorney General William Barr said Tuesday the Justice Department has not uncovered evidence of widespread voter fraud that would change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

Last month, Barr issued a directive to U.S. attorneys across the country allowing them to pursue any “substantial allegations” of voting irregularities, if they existed, before the 2020 presidential election was certified.

I like Sidney Powell, but I agree with Tucker Carlson's criticisms with her claim of machine rigging. They need hard evidence produced in court to change public opinion. I'm not surprised to see Barr make this statement.

Even if Trump doesn't continue in office, he can do a lot outside of it. He should continue to dedicate his time to public service, in particular in service to veterans. That is a cause he truly cares about. I think he should also consider undertaking projects to help build parks and recreation facilities in under developed or impoverished areas. Construction has been his life and I think he can do a lot of good that way. He can always run again in four years, but I think he should support the candidacy of someone like Rand Paul instead.

As we enter the Christmas season, feelings of hope and joy should be filling our hearts. Instead, all I am feeling is sadness and dread. My father was a bombardier with the 461st Bomber Group flying out of Italy. During the Battle of the Bulge he was shot down before reaching the oil refineries at Odertal. Captured by the Germans, he was sent to Stalag Luft 1 where he sat until the end of the war. His love for this country shaped our lives. If a candidate was elected who was not his choice, there was always "next time". We were taught to respect the will of the American people. There was an unquestionable trust in the system. He wouldn't recognize what we have become and that frightens and saddens me. Blessings to you, Colonel and keep the food coming.

It appears that the Trump campaign and others like the Honey Badger are on their own. It doesn't look like the courts are biting. Yet, anyway.

What should be Trump's lessons learned from his term as POTUS? Will he learn it if he runs again in 2024?

You want a unified monolithic state where you California and New York people can rule us all with your disgusting manners and gutter culture. People like you have destroyed Virginia.

Well, it sounds like AG Barr is living up to the fears some of us have harbored that he's a do-nothing placeholder (at best): he gave a presser today saying the DOJ has found no evidence of election fraud that would make a difference in the outcome. AND YET, as each day goes by, there have been alarming reports of testimonies and affidavits signed by eye witnesses to fraud as well as testimonies and affidavits of credible IT analysts who've detected digital fraud.

While I don't doubt that some of the witnesses may present weak evidence, there have been enough credible reports of serious and widespread fraud to convince me the election was indeed stolen, mainly via digital manipulation of tallies and likely large amounts of fake ballots, both used to boost Biden's totals. I'm no lawyer but I'd think that destroying evidence infers an acknowledgement of guilt, and there have also been reports of that as well, e.g. signature envelopes for mail-in ballots being discarded in PA and perhaps in MI too (not sure) which prevents fraud detection and accurate auditing.

Anyway, AG Barr's sincere-sounding lip service given to the issue of government corruption over the last couple of years rings very hollow now. Many of us suspected it would come to this but nevertheless hoped justice would prevail in the end. It didn't, and he's not only failed Trump partisans but failed - miserably - our entire country.

More fun and games in Switzerland:

https://www.courthousenews.com/report-claims-cia-controlled-second-swiss-encryption-firm/?amp=1

CIA and BND buy supposedly legit encryption specialist companies, but hide their ownership position.

China, somewhat stealthily, has major ownership position in supposedly legit bank, UBS.

Now, wouldn't it be a lark if the largely Chinese-owned bank's encryption was via one or the other of the supposedly Swiss encryption specialist companies, secretly owned by the CIA and BND, and was instead designed precisely to undermine the security of encryption?

Spy vs. Spy lives.

NancyK, If you don't understand the reason for an electoral college there's really no need for you to post your opinions or to even think about anything.

fakebot -- Have you been observing a different man than the rest of us? I don't think anyone (who either approves of or disapproves of Trump) sees him becoming like Jimmy Carter and devoting the next few years to building parks or helping veterans or devoting himself to doing good. He has never done either as a private citizen...why start now? He isn't that guy.

"Even if Trump doesn't continue in office, he can do a lot outside of it. He should continue to dedicate his time to public service, in particular in service to veterans. That is a cause he truly cares about. I think he should also consider undertaking projects to help build parks and recreation facilities in under developed or impoverished areas. Construction has been his life and I think he can do a lot of good that way."

Of course, since the CIA, & likely the BND, are largly on the same side with the Chinese and their purported hirelings at Dominion in corrupting the US Presidential election, any snooping they might have had in place might mostly be out of interest in knowing what exactly the other ratfuckers are up to, so as not to be taken unawares, or to be outflanked.

In short, I do not think that these intelligence services work in the interest of western republics; rather, they work their own interests, and/or work for other transnational actors. They ain't working for the citizens of these western republics, for sure.

NancyK,

However much you may dislike the electoral college and prefer that a handful of large cities elect a president, you know it ain't happening in your lifetime. Note that in the 2020 election the Republicans did not lose a single incumbent seat in the House and in fact gained double digits, including in California. They also did not lose any state house where they have the majority. Interesting factoid, when Trump was not on the ballot in 2018 the GOP lost big in the House. In 2020 with him on the ballot they did well beyond the fake polls. But for some reason that appears strange at first glance Atlanta, Detroit, Philly, Phoenix & Milwaukee turned in extra ballots that gave Biden victory in those states.

You should be happy that the big city wokesters & globalists have fully captured the corporate media including Big Tech and many of the beltway think tanks. And the corporatists, many masquerading as strict constructionists have been nominated to the federal judiciary by the Republicans.

A great many news sources claim that the election was rigged. The following link has thirteen major claims to that effect.

https://vultureofcritique.wordpress.com/2020/12/02/one-video-twelve-text-stories-and-several-archived-tweets-regarding-the-contested-election/

Many right-wingers are speculating about whether military tribunals will be used to convict traitors. I do not know how realistic such speculations are.

I guess that about two-thirds of USA citizens believe the election was unjust and dishonest. (That is a scientific wild-ass guess, not a calculation.) However, I estimate that this two-thirds includes most of the Americans who do difficult and necessary jobs, such as driving 18-wheelers full of food into cities.

This two-thirds could cause a grass-roots crisis even if POTUS does not want them to. If the truckers decided to stop delivering food to Detroit for three days, the gangs of Detroit would attempt to plunder food from honest people. Under such circumstances, martial law would seem desirable to many.

POTUS and his supporters have known for many years that frustrated right-wingers could force this type of crisis. POTUS has had years to wargame the possibilities and contingencies. Therefore I assume that POTUS has a plan to minimize the probability of grass-roots crisis. But if such plans fail, any time up to 20 Jan 2021, POTUS is Commander-in-Chief. Military tribunals and martial law are theoretically among his legal powers.

Nancy K,

Get rid of the Electoral College? NEVER!

It's the only thing keeping U.S. from capsizing completely.

Not a lot to feel good about this year but this news has made me very happy:
