Texas GOP suggests secession, prompting immediately backlashPosted by Annie May / December 13, 2020
The Supreme Court has rejected the Texas’ attempt to meddle in other states’ elections, effectively ending Trump’s legal challenges to the election. That rejected prompted the Texas GOP chairman Allen West to issue a statement suggesting that “law-abiding states should bond together and form a Union of states that will abide by the constitution.” Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger shot back immediately:
I believe @TexasGOP should immediately retract this, apologize, and fire Allen West and anyone else associated with this. My guy Abraham Lincoln and the Union soldiers already told you no. https://t.co/A9M8ePJUkJ

Joe Biden now has enough electoral college votes to secure the White House.The election is finally over, after a seemingly endless series of delay tactics by the Trump campaign. The General Services Administration has finally sent the Biden team the message that Trump will begin the transition process.
Joe Biden’s lead over Donald Trump has surpassed six million votes, with the final ballots still coming in. Biden has already won the popular vote by ten million more votes than any other president in American history.
There has been speculation that, this whole time, Donald Trump was “very aware” that he lost the election, but he allegedly put up a fight as a “performance”. Some 80% of Trump’s supporters think that Biden’s win was illegitimate. This has terribly implications for our nation. If we lose faith in our system, our system collapses. Now that Trump has no real chance, let’s see how he and his followers deal.
About a week ago, Trump began to openly admit that Biden won the election, in his own, petty way. He couldn’t do it immediately or risk losing face with his supporters. Around the same time, the Trump campaign has dropped its ridiculous lawsuit demanding a ballot recount in Arizona, after they realized that the margin of victory could not be overcome.
We wonder how much money Trump made from his “election fraud defense fund,” which he used to fundraise for his own legal fees pay off campaign debts.
