Vice President Joe Biden Will Be Inaugurated President Biden: Now the Good News
President Trump can file lawsuits, win a few, but the die is cast. He will not be reelected, absent a showing of massive ballot fraud in Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, and Wisconsin. Anecdotal evidence may make good talking points, but it will not change the outcome. Stories abound of the dead voting, non-residents voting, tranches of tens of thousands ballots in the middle of the night at election counting centers – all for Joe Biden. History of Philadelphia and other cities tell us it’s conceivable illegal ballots may have been cast and recorded. President Trump was right in warning of the dangers of mailing ballots to every registered voter. The Democrats used ballot harvesting in California two years ago to flip seven Congressional seats. That was a dry run to 2020. Prove it! Anecdotal evidence is not facts. This election defies the adage: “If you win big enough, they can’t cheat.” President Trump had a 500,000 vote lead Pennsylvania, but it disappeared The courts are not going to overturn the election. It will be almost impossible to find sufficient improper votes in these states to change the overall outcome. Prove there was massive voter fraud and ballot stuffing. Here’s the good news. The election was not a red wave, but it was certainly not the widely forecast and anticipated blue wave. First, the Republicans have probably held onto the Senate. They have a sure 49 seats, leaving only two Georgia seats and one North Carolina seat undecided. The late North Carolina vote counting may yet give the seat to Democrat Cal Cunningham as Senator Thom Tillis’ margin keeps slipping. The two Georgia seats will be the subject of special elections on January 5, 2021. Hundreds of millions of dollars will be poured into those elections. The Georgia economy will get a boost. The final result could be 52-48 Republican in the Senate, 51-49 Republican or Democratic, or 50-50 with Vice President Harris casting the tie-breaking votes. A majority Republican Senate will stop the Green New Deal, Medicare for all, gun control, quasi-socialism, court packing, state bailouts of, tax increases, and Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. statehood. The Republicans will also be able to block radical nominees of President Biden. However, President Biden will be able to reopen the borders without Congressional approval and regulate fracking to death. The Republicans gained a still undetermined seats in the House of Representatives, not enough for a majority, but sufficient to stymie Speaker Pelosi’s agenda. The predictions were the Democrats would gain 5-10 seats. Instead, they will lose close to 10 seats. Many Democrats who survived this year will be less willing to vote for a radical agenda, AOC and The Squad notwithstanding. “Defund the Police” was apparently toxic to Democrats in the suburbs. Socialism is still a four letter word to most Americans. Many suburban women may have been turned off by President Trump’s style, but they weren’t going to rush into the Democratic agenda. They split their votes. The suburbs are still more conservative than the cities. Therein lies an important result from 2020. Biden voters split their ballots. They voted against President Trump, but would not support the Democratic agenda. The Democrats spent hundreds of millions of dollars at the state level to elect Democrats to the state legislatures. They failed miserably. 2010 was a Republican landslide in response to the enactment of Obamacare. The Republicans then controlled reapportionment in most states. They still will. They lost no legislative chambers and flipped both New Hampshire houses from Democratic to Republican. Republicans will control 59 of the 98 partisan state chambers. The GOP still controls reapportionment in most states. Once again money does not always win elections! The Democrats spent $88 million to flip statehouses. The Democrats and their allies targeted Maine Senator Susan Collins with $63 million in ads. The Democrats and their financial allies spent hundreds of millions of dollars ro defeat Senators Mitch McConnell, Susan Collins, Lindsay Graham, Steve Daines, Thom Tillerson, and others. They failed. Mayor Mike Blumberg spent over $100 million on his failed run in the Democratic primaries for the Democratic nomination. He doubled down with another $100 million for the Democrats in the general election. $200 million+ may be petty cash and chump change to the multi-billionaire, but it was still squandered. Americans celebrated on election night 1982 and 2008 when Governor Clinton defeated President George H.W. Bush and Senator Obama won handily over Senator John McCain. No such mass celebration occurred this year. The Portland mob continued to riot because tat is what they do. America remains divided, but definitely leaning blue. The American Republic will survive a Biden-Harris presidency if the Republicans maintain control of the Senate. President Biden will be forced to moderate his presidency.
