Lest we forget, Trump wasn't exactly wiped out. He increased his personal vote. The USA is a bitterly divided country just now, and reuniting it will be one of Biden's most difficult tasks. He's made a very good start by remaining dignified, calm and measured during the last few days.

pfr, have you been watching Adam Hills The Last Leg? In the episode this week he showed a Monopoly-style game board but it was called Democracy and the last thing he did was a reference to a certain person going straight to jail.

I just read the news here in Oz. Yes Joe Biden and his team will have an uphill battle to restore some sort of balance and normality and he probably won't achieve everything to his complete satisfaction but if ever a battle was worth fighting for, this is it.

The orange tick has dug his way (and that of his family) into a position of power and it's going to take more than a hot match head to get them to back out of the flesh of American government. They're all going to have to put their houses up for sale, they're going to have to restart their businesses, and, yes, they're going to have to keep attorneys on retainers to settle all of the lawsuits and represent them in court for criminal proceedings.

They probably will trash the place as they go, so here's hoping the non-partisan federal employees who look over the White House and other public buildings used by Trump will be able to stand up to the Trumps. And please, fumigate the White House before the new First Family moves in.

Trump has been briefed on all sorts of top secret activity, he still has the nuclear codes. This is a really dangerous time to have a sociopathic toddler's temper tantrum run for the next 2.5 months.

I don't see this as a deeply divided country. There are extremists on all sides but there is a strong and sane center that wants security, safety, life, liberty, right to own property, right to free speech and freedom to vote however in honest elections (which are only as honest as loopholes that are closed). I am glad biden won, wish it was by more so less contesting the vote, but he did not deserve a landslide.he failed to even condemn the rioting and supposedly 88% of trump voters mentioned that as a factor in exit polls. It was a huge factor for me, although I did not vote for him. They need to tell the big packed crowds to disperse..what are they thinking of in raging pandemic.same for trump rallies, huge weddings etc. Go home and tweet. Stay home for Thanksgiving. Be grateful for the outcome but we will be better off with minimum smugness and condescension.

Perhaps you should have expected someone with a career of hypnosis and mind control to forgive all the Trumpsters as victims of a fractured mind, put in a bubble of solitary confinement, subjected to psych algorithems on Facebook, all with the background audio of right wing radio bought by Sinclair to further reinforce the elimination rhetoric, and QAnon extremism that precedes a holocaust while strung out on Fox News.

If npr had been corrupted you too might believe an awful story and start down the road of a fractured mind syndrome. Don't think you are immune. The correct term is disinformation - not misinformation when it is used deliberatetly in mind control. Believe me control of the masses is a real current career path today.

I'm the maverick that is like a defense against the dark arts professor. Or like Penn and Teller showing people how tricks and illusions are done. I'm the one who refused to work for the CIA in this field when I was actively recruited. There were consequencea and sacrifice.

Undoing the fractured mind is tedious work but can be done in less time than a Presidential term. This is not hocus pocus BS but is serious stuff that works on intelligent people.

Like hacking code, toxic and poisonous mind control is out of the CIA bag now and is being used in cults and republican think tanks and nations..

WHAT TO DO NOW? Forgive those fractured and enamored with Trump - Half of them can be easily redeemed.

Yes, Joe Biden did indeed- and frequently! - condemn the violence. He often said, very forcefully, 'Demonstrating is an American right but looting and burning and vandalism is NOT demonstrating. They are CRIMES.'

I don't quite see how anyone missed that.

But I have a question: Just how much power does the outgoing president retain during the period between the election and the inauguration?

I know he can pardon all manner of people- evidently including himself, which saves him from ONLY federal crimes but does not save him from state infractions. So my expectation is that he will preemptively pardon his family and a number of others. (A feature of pardons that is sometimes overlooked is that accepting a pardon indicates that you recognize your guilt.)

But surely he cannot enter into agreements with other national heads? Surely not declare wars? Respond to aggression, yes, but not otherwise?

Oh, and Donuel, your post of Nov. 6 at 8:46 AM needs crediting. If I had not previously seen that elsewhere, I would have thought you ere claiming it as our own. Perhaps no one else would have but I am the trusting sort.

Biden didn't just squeak through with the election, he had four million plus more votes than Trump. It's only this obsolete "Electoral College" - a remnant of the slave states era, that makes it look "close." (States with a low population of white land-owning men compared to the larger percentage of slaves, decided that a "winner take all" setup would give them more clout to protect their slave-holding status). Now that the populace as a whole is entitled to vote, that relic needs to go away.

The AP has called AZ for Biden and if he takes GA, and it appears he will, he'll wind up with 306 electoral votes, the same amount trump had in 2016 when he claimed he won by "the biggest landslide in history". So this thing wasn't all that close in either the popular vote or the "Electoral College".

One reason for optimism regarding those GA runoff elections is that since trump won't be on the ballot some of those boneheads that support him might not be bothered to show up at the polls. I'll certainly kick in a few bucks, the enormous task of cleaning up trump's gigantic mess will be considerably easier if the Democrats control the Senate and the thought of the corrupt, racist, QAnon enthusiast Kelly Loeffler winning a seat is nauseating.

Faithless electors are rarely a thing - and many states have laws that simply prevent their changing their votes.

I suppose the BBC may go by the "equal time" rule that the FCC used to impose on radio and TV here, but it ends up with minority crackpots getting equal time with actual players in a serious conversation. They were interviewing a woman from North Carolina tonight who was trying to claim Trump shouldn't concede and the court cases have "merit," even though she couldn't give any facts as to what actual real merit might exist. It was a waste of airtime.

punkfolkrocker, that was my implied question: How much power does the outgoing president retain=why is there such a long period of time available for mischief making? I know the reasoning and that inaugurations used to be held in March because travel was so slow. However, that is no longer the case and it seems to me that December 1, say, should be plenty of time.

They are saying that Biden has spent the last few months formulating his cabinet members, long before he could be sure he would be elected. That seems logical to me.

In my view, the amount of airtime a party or so-called party gets should be proportionate to the number of councillors, regional representatives and MPs. Otherwise BBC should be giving equal coverage to everyone who has aspiration to become a politician.

It used to be the new president didn't assume office until March of the following year. It was moved forward a long time ago, but this may be the election that has it moving even closer to the date of the election being certified. There is a lot of canvasing left to do, so the next day wouldn't work here (since the whole nation and not just a house of parliament makes this vote).

Hitler lost his first election getting only 30%. Trump lost by several %.

POST CAMPAIGN RALLYS (the 1st of their kind) are planned and guns are not disallowed in certain areas. Trump may not be satisfied without blood being spilled like an unstable child seeking revenge. He would also possibly create Trump martyrs for his base as a fringe benefit for his domestic call to arms.

In lieu of dramatic scenarios like that his next 70 days will have to be handled very carefully. No help from the Republicans, they're busy getting Covid any way, like Ben Carson and Mark Meadows chief of staff and 30 others.

The revolution of the chiken shits is laughable.
I would charge him with sedition the moment he called on any federal forces to support his continuance. Tie him up by any means possible.

Looking at how long it takes to go from tolerence of your neighbor to participating in an actual holocaust against your neighbor takes an average of 10 years more or less based on all the examples since the 1st century. In Germany it took longer than it did in Rawanda.
The crucial step is eliminationist rhetoric. Google it and see what you have been hearing for 16 years already in the USA.

The best medicine is education so you know what and who is up to the worst that mankind is prone to do.

Someday a competant ethnic purity advocate can seduce average Americans to the dark side. Vigilence is never ending.
