I don't know ... (disclosure, I'm Canadian so I do not have any stake in the election outcome) .. but I found it frustrating, if not a bit outlandish that I could not find any media from North America that wasn't highly biased or in some cases flat out lies. I found a majority, if not all, of the major networks blatantly anti Trump, and never showing 2 sides to any issue. Add on top the bias from IT giants/social media like Google, Twitter, Amazon, YouTube and Facebook and it doesn't seem that mind boggling. I had to find media sources from the UK and Australia to get any sort of truthful reporting.Always amazes me that the Trumpsters blame the Democrats for fudging an election when they were the ruling party. Must have been weird seeing all of those Dem eleves sneaking around changing and swapping votes. And imagine the odds of only happening in states Trump didn't win. The odds are mind boggling.
Oh yeah snopes......we KNOW they arent biased.
Blaming a piece of machinery? C'mon man! Sure we know that GIGO.
I think I'll just trust these guys to 'do the right thing':
The Joint Chiefs of Staff, the group of the most senior uniformed leaders at the Pentagon, issued a force-wide statement Tuesday condemning the riot at the Capitol as a “direct assault” on Congress and the constitutional process and affirming President-elect Joe Biden will become the nation’s 46th commander in chief on Jan 20.
The memo represented a rare step for a U.S. military leadership that has sought to keep the American armed forces out of the nation’s rancorous partisan politics in recent years. It came after a number of the rioters, who stormed the Capitol last week falsely claiming last year’s presidential election had been stolen from President Trump, turned out to be veterans of the U.S. military.
“The violent riot in Washington, D.C. on January 6, 2021 was a direct assault on the U.S. Congress, the Capitol Building and our Constitutional process,” the top officers said. “We mourn the deaths of the two Capitol policemen and others connected to these unprecedented events.”
The Joint Chiefs said that they witnessed actions inside the Capitol that were inconsistent with the rule of law and that the rights to freedom of speech and assembly “do not give anyone the right to resort to violence, sedition and insurrection.”
The top uniformed officers broadly affirmed that the military would continue to obey lawful orders from civilian leadership and protect the U.S. Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic, while supporting civil authorities to protect lives and property and helping ensure public safety in accordance with the law. The Joint Chiefs also called on the force to embody the ideals of the nation.
“As service members, we must embody the values and ideals of the nation,” the Joint Chiefs said. “We support and defend the Constitution. Any act to disrupt the constitutional process is not only against our traditions, values, and oath; it is against the law.”
The top officers said that on Jan. 20, in accordance with the Constitution, confirmed by the states and courts and certified by Congress, Biden will be inaugurated and become commander in chief.
“To our men and women deployed and at home, safeguarding our country — stay ready, keep your eyes on the horizon, and remain focused on the mission,” the Joint Chiefs said. “We honor your continued service in defense of every American.”

After that statement, I think this is a good time to invoke the title of this thread, as the above should settle any arguments about the process, the outcome, and the future.
I see your David on TikTok, and raise you Trump-Silent Running.

Did it ever enter your minds that if everywhere is anti-trump, maybe they have a reason and could be correct? You have based the entirety of your country on one man, out of more than 300,000,000 people .. and he is the reason you are going to kill each other over? That is just ridiculous and pathetic.
FactCheck:Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks told Newsmax TV on Wednesday that he knew of intelligence prior that antifa was planning to impersonate Trump supporters in Washington and storm the U.S. Capitol, and also that there is evidence that the leftist militant group was present during...www.newsmax.com
I agree that he said it, but he's not telling the truth.So your telling me that Mo Brooks didnt say this? Did you watch the video to see what Mo Brooks said?
So, Congress WASNT briefed that ANTIFA looking to infiltrate the rally, a couple of days BEFORE the rally? Why is that so hard to believe?
That's exactly it.Wow, why does it always take some oddball theory or conspiracy to justify trump's actions? White people dressing up as idiots in horned costumes and plastic handcuffs wearing maga hats and attacking the Capitol, suspiciously at the same time that dear leader trump is egging the dreaded "antifa" onto the Capitol to have a "wild" time. Does that sound plausible? Even remotely. Try some reality for a change.
Proud Boys in BlackSo, Congress WASNT briefed that ANTIFA looking to infiltrate the rally, a couple of days BEFORE the rally? Why is that so hard to believe?
I was watching the rally. Maga people are like the people on this forum.....mostly middle aged. Maga people are usually 35-65.....again, like people on this forum. As my wife and I are watching......there are people dressed in black......carry backpacks.....busting into Congress. While they are walking down the hall, they are flipping off statues. Your gonna tell me those people are part of the Maga crowd?
Look at this. That afternoon I posted a video on FB, from a twitter account, from Someone that was at the rally.....said people wearing black running past him (a group of people with ear pieces....saying its time to go) and running towards the capital. FB deemed it false. I took a snippet of the fact checkers. FB was in such a hurry to "Fact check" everything......NONE of the 6 fact checks had anything to do with the video. THAT is trying to control the narrative. View attachment 74830
So you believe a tweet (because it falls in line with your core beliefs), but dont believe a representative when he says on TV that congress received briefings about Antifa? I dont know if Antifa was there actually.....Normally where Antifa is, its more fiery but peaceful.
The fact that big tech is censoring speech, deplatforming businesses they don’t agree with, forcing companies to donate to one party and not to another or be deplatformed is WRONG!
Next it will be you can’t get a job because of your political stance on your personal platform.
Then what? Re-education camps? First, it’ll be for right wingers. Then camps will be filled with those with any independent thought left. Then the useful idiots. Don’t think so? Pick up a history book.
Slippery slope just got slippier. The fact that democrats are applauding censorship tells me all I ever needed to know. The fact that GOPers are agreeing tells me all I need to know as well. The discussion here where most of you seem pigeon holed believing one group or the other and vehemently defending why also tells me everything I need to know about how far gone civil society has become.
There is no such thing as hate speech. Now, we are down to free speech is awesome, so long as I agree with what they have to say. Which I do not. I have, and will continue to think for myself. Somehow Ima racist, a bigot, a xenophobic asshole. Common sense? Dead.
Rational thought? Dead.
Deductive thinking? Dead.
Nikole Hannah-Jones, of the NYT’s 1619 Project, appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Tuesday, to join the panel in attacking Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, as well as the 74 million Americans who voted for President Trump this past election as evil racists akin to the KKK.www.newsbusters.org
