FOX News is less the network of conservatism that the network of controlling interests. Call them what you like, but the shadowy powers that run this country are not entirely displeased to see Trump sent packing. He ruffled some feathers that are better left unexposed. The "neocons" et al who run FOX are no friends of true liberty.

Trump Jr and Giuliani talking how there is a grand conspiracy across state lines orchestrated from DNC, Mars, Hollywood Studios, and alternate universes to rob Trump. Not one, not two, not three, not four, lawsuits coming. Not just a national lawsuit, but a Milky Way wide one coming! Giuliani: "California was called right after it was closed! It is unconscionable and a clear fraud!"

CNN is making a good point.

Why is the Trump Campaign so sure they are going to win where they are losing ( AZ, NV), but they only think there is widespread fraud where they are losing ( Wisconsin, Michigan)?

My understanding in NV at least is with Clark and Washoe Counties already reporting in, the margin is smaller than the heavily red rural mail in ballots left to count. Regardless, NV has stated they will not give any updates until tomorrow at the earliest.

It's about time those ruffled feathers are exposed for the better of everyone.

The fraud is trying to claim you've won the election and demanding all further counting stops when there are still votes to be counted. And now we are seeing why he made that claim. He's a greedy despot.

All counties in Nevada, including Clark and Washoe, are between 80-90% reporting. Douglas the lowest at 82. Clark then at 84.

I still don't get how it is not so obvious to every one with a single firing neuron how sour grapes this all is. They think there was fraud ONLY in the states going blue, but no fraud in Ohio, or Florida, or probably North Carolina. If it wasn't the fact that the sanity and actual social order and economic and health future of an entire nation of 320 million was a stake, I would want Biden to just let it rip and go on to call fraud in all the states he lost close. This is totally Unamerican behavior by the thuggish Trump lackeys.

So they want all the votes to be counted right in Nevada? So they should be consistent in Michigan and Wisconsin. The fact that the Trump campaign is not consistent makes me think that they are worried, and that they are engaging in voter fraud,

I know it's already called, but Biden lead in MI now in excess of 70k votes.
Related, Biden's popular vote number now exceeds that of Obama's 2008 turnout. Impressive for a "Sleepy Joe".

After this, the USA will have no rights to call on other countries to respect democratic election norms when the USA leadership is unable to do so itself. Maybe it is deliberate from Trump and his people as a scorched earth policy, they know they are on the way out so they'll cause as much damage as possible while they can.

Part of the issue is validating ballots. There is only about 8,000 votes separating the two. They are being cautious and working to ensure everything is correct and to the letter before finishing the release and confirming a final tally.

Well if Republicans, or Democrats for that matter, don't trust their own people on the ground, each other, and the states and counties in conducting a fair election, the USA I guess would need to do like other fragile states and call upon international observers to monitor the entire process.

That would be good to see if Trump gets 3.000.000 votes more than Biden and bind captures the Electoral Voted and gets Inaugurated. That might FINALLY get the GOP going to move to end the EC and go with straight national popular vote.

Pity that the Senate didn't complete the hate trick - that is going to put McConnell into a position of getting the GOP into being the "Party of No" again. :vomit:

IIRC Twitter decided it was best to leave it active and allow people to see what he says - perhaps they were right.

Possible, that is why the ballots are still being counted (or has Trump sued to stop that too?). But it is highly unlikely as not every single vote will be for Trump (hmmm... what if they are?) and the areas being counted tend to lean Dem.

I do laugh when I here Giuliani and other elites on Trump's team talk about "voter fraud" and how "the people" need to decide the election and that the "elites" are trying to steal it. As he and his team of elites work to stop the vote from proceeding. It's just kinda, almost laughable.

Possible, that is why the ballots are still being counted (or has Trump sued to stop that too?). But it is highly unlikely as not every single vote will be for Trump (hmmm... what if they are?) and the areas being counted tend to lean Dem.

I do laugh when I here Giuliani and other elites on Trump's team talk about "voter fraud" and how "the people" need to decide the election and that the "elites" are trying to steal it. As he and his team of elites work to stop the vote from proceeding. It's just kinda, almost laughable.

The only fraud seems to be come from Trump and his team of cronies. Trying to prevent democratic processes happening.

Trump’s lead in PA has narrowed to just +3, per NY Times. Do we know, as of now, how many votes are still yet to be tallied in PA?

The levels of crazy the sycophants are reaching is incredible, even for what we have seen of them the last couple years. Just totally wild, silly claims without evidence.

I'm going to enjoy all of this very, very much in what is admittedly a very twisted way. These buffoons like Giuliani and Trump's legal goons dashing state to state to try and plug the holes in the lifeboat. But this isn't Florida in 2000 - they can't just flood the recount zone and hone the nation's attention on a single state or precinct. They'll try to interfere in Pennsylvania only to see Arizona possibly called by more outlets as early as tonight, and then when they try and focus their attention there Nevada will be called tomorrow morning with continued threat in Georgia, and at that point it'll all be over... for all of them.

Idiots. All of these idiots who thought they could play government.
