6 million more votes.Sounds like double the number of votes Clinton had over Trump in 2016 so actually Trump is a 2 time loser and regardless of electoral college nonsense, how many million more votes are enough?

Of course, but something was needed to counter Trump's rallies, and it did not happen.

"There are improbabilities in the result. Biden received fewer votes than Clinton or Obama in most areas but many more in the “battleground states” (False. Of the 50 states, in only six was there a swing towards Trump:Hawaii, Utah, Florida, California, Arkansas, Illinois. The swing from Trump to Biden in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Nevada was <2.0%. In Arizona, Michigan, North Carolina it was <4.0%) . There were striking exceptions in “down-ballot” voting: in the key states there were large differences between the votes for Biden and for the Democratic Senate candidate. (Comparing apples to oranges. Anyway, in the seats contested this year, the Democrat increased their % in 24 of them) There are cases of historically high – almost Soviet-level – turnouts in key precincts in the “battleground states”. There were improbably high turnouts in nursing homes and in group homes. There are many cases where more votes were cast than voters registered. (I don't have the precinct data, but the paces where Trump did the best compared to 2016 were big cities run by Democrats: New York City, Philadelphia. In cites like Atlanta, Detroit and Houston, he held his vote better than in the Republican run counties of those states. Trump cut his deficit in Miami-Dade County from 29% to 7%. If he doesn't do that, he loses Florida) It was generally a bad day for Democratic candidates: seats were lost in the House and in state legislatures but we are expected to believe that Biden won a strong victory. (In 2016, Trump ran 3.0% behind the Republican congressional vote. In 2020 it he's currently running 1.0% behind. In the eight congressional elections held during a Presidential election since 1988, the Democrats just had their second highest % of the vote) Despite the spectacular difference in enthusiastic crowds, we’re told that more people turned out for Biden on the day (Ah yes, the "boat parade" argument. How can such a wonderful man lose?). Perhaps any one of these can be explained but can all of them?" (I think I just did)

I'll continue to post from alternative sources to the CNN, WaPo or NYT msm etc preferred by some here. Whatever you or I may think about Biden's 'win', millions of Americans apparently do not share this view. And whether you do or not this view matters and is of interest.

If the election is legalistically overthrown for "fraud", the most egregious fraud will be that decision of the Republican-weighted Supreme Court. Even assuming the systemically corrupt process and the probable fiddling of votes from both parties, the 7 million popular vote lead of Biden would not plausibly evaporate. To endorse a pro-Trump Republican-partisan lawfare action of the Supreme Court would nothing to do with justice or democracy.

As usual, Putin is being pragmatic in not (yet) congratulating Biden--as phony as such an inevitable congratulation will be given the vile Biden's collection of neocons, aggressive imperialists hot and cold warriors who could easily be more of threat than the vile Trump for the third level power of Russia, and result in even more world conflict.  A Putin congratulation now would do nothing to placate these creatures who have thrived on the absurd Russiagate bandwagon.

Prior to the election Putin hedged his bets by not jumping on the Hunter Biden scandal: Putin rejects Donald Trump's criticism of Biden family business
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-putin-idUSKBN27A0TA

Putin is still hedging by not inflaming the still active in office Trump who will be riding his "I was robbed" dog and pony show to the end. Despite "lame duck" status, Trump is still head of the US crime family and is capable of continued criminality such as the the stepped up murders and sanctions against Iran. If one is fixated on foreign presidential-puppetry there are more plausible candidates than Russia.

Despite the cognitive dissonance of Russiagators who see Trump as "Putin's puppet", Trump has pursued anti-Russian policies far beyond that of Obama, and was apparently undeterred by the imaginary "pee tapes" promoted endlessly by the MSM and their gormless followers.

Kobach: Texas Case Challenges Eelction Directly at Supreme Court

Gotta know what right wing ratfuckers like Kobach think about the "stolen" election, otherwise you're missing out on a cogent point of view. Just ask Tucker Carlson or Sean Hannity.

josh

Despite his clear loss, Mr. Trump has shown no intention of stopping his sustained assault on the American electoral process. But his baseless conspiracy theories about voting fraud have devolved into an exercise in delegitimizing the election results, and the rhetoric is accelerating among his most fervent allies. . . .

Supporters of the president, some of them armed, gathered outside the home of the Michigan secretary of state Saturday night. Racist death threats filled the voice mail of Cynthia A. Johnson, a Michigan state representative. Georgia election officials, mostly Republicans, say they have received threats of violence. The Republican Party of Arizona, on Twitter, twice called for supporters to be willing to “die for something” or “give my life for this fight.”

Activists who are otherwise progressive and even revolutionary can therefore end up, at best, reproducing the narratives propagated by authoritarian governments in peripheral countries; at worst, they could be actively supporting brutal repression.

The broad scope of this brand of “anti-imperialism” has also allowed right-wing types to make their way into various left-wing circles in the West, as part of a broader phenomenon in which fascist movements co-opt left-wing talking points in support of illiberal regimes or ideologies. This is amply illustrated by programs on the Russian state-affiliated outlet RT or Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” both of which regularly feature far-right and left-wing “anti-imperialist” personalities.
