Voters have Wisdom. And you see Hundreds of thousands of TRUMP SUPPORTERS AT his rallies .Only a Dozen at Sleepy JOEs and that is when he had JON BON JOVI WHO HE PAID .I'M A COWBOY ON A SLEEPY HORSE I RIDE

Trump voters with wisdom Evidently? Evidently not. To wit:

chuck 11/2/20, 9:59 PM

Trump takes 36 states and 52% of the popular vote (I hope).

chuck 11/2/20, 10:00 PM

About 320 electoral votes.

Ha ha.. That went well. Looney Tunes as always.

What time does Kansas Shitty burn? I want to make sure and get the libtards in action on DVR.

Still waiting, no doubt, but in the meantime there's still plenty of My Little Pony to watch.

And the only one who got it right:

Democrats win, chuck accuses them of fraudlently stealing it and doesn't shut up for four years or until he dies, whichever comes first

I know which one I want to come first.

They are cheaters, we just haven’t gotten down to their level yet to figure out how they’re doing it.... but we will eventually.

Now it’s our turn to criticize every second of dementia joes two hours a day that he’s awake! Hahahahaha!

And we are warming up in the bullpen as we speak!

10:00 wow dude, get a life, that took way too much of your short life to copy and paste every little thing someone says from weeks and months ago. You are one sick puppy.

Apparently it was really important for you to do that, does it help ease your pain of the last four years?

It's going to be fun to watch Joe stumble through answers for who knows how long. The guy sold his soul to China and other countries under the table. The votes in Detroit, Atlanta, Philly and other areas were rigged. The Devil has a special place waiting for those who corrupted the election system of the greatest country on Earth. They are soulless, corrupt and empty vessels of human dung.

Damn, we stole the presidency but totally forgot about the house and senate.

How embarrassing.

That's your working theory over there, you CHUDS?

Biden was certified in Georgia but there has been an injunction filed so don't start shooting in the streets just yet. Oh and remember when Biden was behind the Clarence Thomas bogus sexual harassment accusation? said...

10:00 the election was/is being stolen.

You don't have to be John Stuart Mill to figure this out. Pretty much, a average student at a charter school can understand the relative context and criminal implications of how this was done in about 30 minutes.

That probably does exclude a large percentage of Progressives. That said, even democrats, right now, are beginning to come around and face the facts.

As time goes by and more evidence is introduced, those percentages will increase dramatically.

Joe is fucked.

Meanwhile your incompetent party they couldn't prove a damn thing in court. Thank God for the lawyers, who know all about the consequences of lying in court.

Weird? No.

Yeah, sure, we will see.

The Republicans did so well in the House and Senate because so many of the ballots only had Biden marked on the ballot, not the other Dems. Very suspicious bullsh*t. Could also have been the software that gave Biden multiple votes for single votes that came in for Trump in the middle of the night. The Republican attorneys already have about 250 affidavits of people who witnessed election fraud. If the software company is innocent of crimes, they need to sue the Republican lawyers for libel and slander, but it's "crickets" coming from their leadership. What does that tell you?

I ran several of Boomer Hater/Geezer/Pops/Geriatric Fu*ktard/Old People/Weird/CHUD boy's comments through an online age detection app for written materials and it showed in the results that he is only 10 years old. You can tell his age by his lack of writing skills and his frequent temper tantrums. I'm guessing he dropped out of elementary school and his mother doesn't know what to do with him, especially when he continues to wet the bed and fill his diaper. For his welfare, we’ve started a GoFundMe page titled “Save the 10-Year-Old Bed-Wetting Dumbass."

8:35: That tells me that 250 people MAY (or may not) have witnessed something they interpreted as voter fraud, none of which has been verified and for all we know some of which may have involved suspected Republican voter fraud. Get back to us when 6 million verified affidavits proving Democratic voter fraud exist.

You may now return to your tin foil hat news source.

^^^ dominion voting machines were created to give Chavez the win in every election, there is evidence the cia has manipulated elections to elect whole new regimes in foreign countries so it’s no stretch of the imagination to assume that there has been some manipulation for one party or the other. It ain’t rocket science here.

Uh oh spaghettioes.... “Dominion Voting Systems has ties to prominent Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Bill and Hillary Clinton. Bloomberg reported in “April of last year” that Dominion Voting Systems hired a high-powered lobbying firm that includes a longtime aide to Pelosi. They hired Brownstein Farber Hyatt & Schreck. Nadeam Elshami, Pelosi’s former chief of staff, is one of the lobbyists on the account.”

Nut cases Nancy, billy and hilly are involved, two people who hate Trump the most. Started in April of 2019 so they had plenty of time to stage this whole crime. Weird.

I had a friend who worked at Dominion in Denver. I cant tell you what he said. i dont want to start a huge fuss.

That picture of Union Station show the former "Sprint hall" that used to have a big computerized fountain. Now Sprint is GONE! It FAILED! Too many work from home employees in PJ's and wait for the Amazon packages to arrive types. Lazy. Sprints competition quickly took control. The Sprint campus is shit.
