Ok, what are the actual odds of Trump resigning mid-January, then making Pence give him a full pardon of all wrongdoing, just before Jan 20?


And is Pence lackey-minded enough to do it or would he realize it will stain him forever? You know, besides the immorality of it all.

Since I'm in a hotel room with cable, I've actually watched CNN and MSNBC. They've finally discovered their courage once it was obvious Biden won.

What little I could stand of Fox, they seem to have switched back to "Democrats are socialist monsters" mode and are less interested in Trump's attempt to derail the election.

Not that they are uninterested in Trump's attempted coup, just less interested than they might be if they thought he could succeed.

“I’m the only president in history to lose the popular vote twice.”

People keep saying this, but unfortunately, it isn’t true: Benjamin Harrison also lost the popular vote twice, and John Quincy Adams lost it three times! Trump isn’t fit to shine either’s shoes. Both would’ve also found him insufferably racist – Adams was an abolitionist, and Harrison attempted to secure voting rights for African-Americans, for all the good it did. Both Adams and Harrison also lost the popular vote to much worse people, unlike Trump (Adams to Andrew Jackson the second and third times he ran, and Harrison to Grover Cleveland both times he ran).

Whereas "election fraud" lawsuits are 100% motivated by democracy, truth and fairness, of course.

My proposed inaugural address for President Biden:

My friends,

After a formidable but unsuccessful attempt by the outgoing president to subvert the will of the American people and overturn the results of a free and fair election, we meet here today — as we have every four years since the inception of the republic — to usher in a presidential administration. The good news is that we have thwarted this effort to tear at the very heart of our democracy, the secret ballot freely cast. The rest of the news, I am afraid, is mostly bad and even dire. We must face facts without flinching but also without fear.

Here are the facts: A lethal virus runs unchecked across the land. Our economy lies in ruins, with factories and stores shuttered. Our international relations are in ruins. We have alienated our friends and emboldened our foes. Throughout the world, we are either mocked or pitied, or both. Four years ago from this very location, the previous president spoke of American carnage. He vowed to end a carnage that did not then exist. Instead, he implemented a set of disastrous domestic and a foreign policies, and the carnage came. He sowed the wind and, unfortunately, we reap the whirlwind.

I do not come here today to offer platitudes, but to speak unvarnished and unpleasant truths. At the same time, I am here to offer hope. Let fear not be our face, but let us face our fears — predominantly, the fear of a pathogen that has now claimed some 300,000 American lives, more lives that were lost in all our wars combined. Fear of joblessness. Fear of hunger. Fear of poverty. Fear of a future in which our children and theirs will live in a land of less. These fears are understandable, but the American people, in their fortitude and courage, and with decisive leadership, will overcome and transcend these dark times, as they have every national crisis in the past.

Tackling the pandemic is priority one, here on day one of this administration. After delivering this speech, which I will keep brief and to the point, I will sign an executive order for a national mask mandate. We know from science — yes, science, and not superstition, or the lies that become memes on the internet — that wearing a mask greatly curtails the spread of the corona virus, and will literally save tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of lives. It is appalling to me that the previous administration made wearing a mask or not some kind of currency in the so-called culture wars. It is not. It is plain common sense and a way for all of us to establish some sort of agency over this pathogen that does not care about politics. My friends, is the simple expedient of wearing a mask really so great of a sacrifice? Think of our forebears, and the sacrifices they made in times of war. Now, no one is asking you to be massacred, but simply to wear a mask.

There is promising news on the vaccine front, but the wide distribution and administration of a safe and effective vaccine is many months away. This administration will do its utmost to expedite that process, but I must also tell you that a large proportion of our population has come to distrust vaccines because of the false and odious propaganda of the so-called anti-vaxxers. For a vaccine to be effective in establishing herd immunity and conquering the corona virus, it is a fact that the vast majority of people must be vaccinated. If that does not happen, we are looking at a death toll, not in the hundreds of thousands, but in the millions. Starting today, this administration will inaugurate a nationwide education campaign to drive home the safety and necessity of vaccines, which in the past have vanquished smallpox and polio and greatly curbed the measles. The public health benefits of timely vaccinations have historically been immeasurable and will be again in our current crisis.

There will be no nationwide lockdowns that undermine our economy, but at the same time we must practice caution and restraint and maintain our vigilance against this invisible enemy. Social distancing, wearing a mask, and keeping indoor business and social activities to a minimum are what we must continue to do until we prevail. We are in a kind of war, but it is a war that can be won without bloodshed and by taking steps to keep casualties to a minimum.

An inaugural address is not the proper vehicle for detailed policy recommendations. Those I will lay out in my forthcoming state of the union speech. When we have got the corona virus under control, as we most assuredly will, we will then have to address a whole host of festering problems. We shall have to revive and rehabilitate the economy, address the climate change catastrophe and combat misinformation about it, and repair our crumbling infrastructure. The switch to a green economy and renovating our bridges, roads, rails and other necessities will foster tens of millions of new, good-paying jobs. Let us get to work on doing that, and in the days ahead I will outline, in detail, plans for meeting these challenges.

May I says a few words to Republican lawmakers, and to the tens of millions of good Americans who voted for my opponent? Joe Biden is not your enemy but your friend. At age 78, I still am who I was in the beginning — a working-class kid from Scranton. If we continue to divide this nation into two tribes — Red and Blue — then we are eventually going to lose the whole nation. I am afraid that we are in what I would call a cold civil war, and cold civil wars can eventually become hot ones. I appeal to all of us to give one another the benefit of the doubt, to lower the temperature, temper the rhetoric, and to start afresh. I pledge to reach across the aisle in Congress and to reach out to those who did not vote for me. I am your president too, and I pledge to you that you will always have my ear and I will always have your back, and the backs of all Americans.

I promised to be brief and to the point and I now close. I sense that America wants fewer words and lots more action, and action it shall have. Let us heal. Let us reach out to one another as friends and not as foes, as fellow citizens and not as tribal enemies. Let us roll up our sleeves and whip this virus and put our people back to work and make our factories, farms and shops hum again, and make America sing again. Let us turn the page on the past and begin to write, as every generation must, a new chapter in the great book of America. Thank you very much, and Zod bless you all. ... Um, I mean God, not Zod! :shiftier:

I like everything about this, even including most of the conciliatory language because I think it's appropriate in that context. But I also think that leaving out anything about racism and the rise of domestic terrorism would be a mistake.

Haha, wow, make checks payable, not to the GOP, not to Trump’s campaign, not even to some LLC, but directly to me! Remember to put a note in the non legally binding section that this was the Trump election grift.

"4. In the past few days, any Republican or conservative commentator who offered even the mildest criticism of Sidney Powell was attacked by diehard Trump fans.

What will those fans say now?"
