Democrats are projecting again

Right now, MSM is full of articles in the nature of “OMG! Trump isn’t going to concede that Biden legitimately won the election.”

But that is exactly what Democrats have been doing for the last four years. They never accepted that Trump legitimately won the election. They tried to push electors to change their votes. Before Trump even took office, they were dreaming up a strategy to impeach him. He’s not the legitimate president because he didn’t win the popular vote (even though the system set up in the Constitution for selecting the president has nothing to do with the popular vote). His winning the election was blamed on James Comey, on Russian spies, on anything except that voters in key swing states liked him better than Hillary Clinton. And to the extent that they sometimes grudgingly admit that some voters did like him better, it’s only because those voters were racists and deplorables or otherwise motivated by evil thoughts and desires.

The Democrats are right that it will be bad for America if Trump and his supporters never accept Biden as the legitimate president, just as it has been bad for America that Democrats never accepted Trump as the legitimate president.

  1. So, will Trump win?

    • No, he won’t. He’s way behind in the polls, and unlike in 2016 the polls aren’t wrong.

      • This time it really is the end of Trump, we promise. It’s not like the last two hundred times we said the same thing. Also don’t look at the most recent Rasmussen polls. Only look at polls from this past summer.

      • He hasn’t signed additional executive orders to give proles more coronavirus money than they should really spend.

        That’ll do the trick!

        Ok, what, who's this again?

    • How could he? The economy is terrible and the msm and social media won’t let it happen. He had a chance last spring to be a leader. He blew it by appeasing to dumb base instincts during a time when sobriety was needed. It all seemed like a really bad joke, like he didn’t take the times seriously.

      I do think a lot of this blm nonsense will go away several months after swear in, despite continuing deteriorating economic conditions. It just goes to show how powerful religion really is. Few identify with it. Rich dems, libs, and progressive identitarians really won’t need it anymore and don’t really want it around their cities.

  2. Trump did in fact won the popular vote pissing contest. Trump won 30 states and Clinton won the remaining ones.

    NY State is Trump turf if you minus the counties with large urban centers and a place like intellectual oriented Ithaca (whose White populace voted for Clinton more than the SWPLs of Manhattan). So take out NYC, White Plains, Albany, Syracuse, Ithaca, Rochester, Buffalo and it is pretty much Donald Trump all the way.

    It also proves my point that anywhere north and west of Albany is indeed Upstate NY (and not the Hudson Valley), because most of the areas have a cluster of 4 or more counties with a majority population who are pro-Trump.

    Ok, what, who's this again?

    • Lion will love this when I say the Hudson Valley is more connected with Manhattan than the borough of Staten Island. Public transit allows you to travel from the city to the HV back n forth. Now try that with the Guido Kingdom. There is virtually no easy or direct way to get in n out of Staten Island from n into Manhattan.

      It’s the nexus I tell ya…the Hudson Valley has more people going in n out to n from the city for work n play. There are more guidos visiting the Jerky Shore than Midtown Manhattan. Furthermore, telling people in Manhattan that you come from Staten Island is as bad as a man telling a woman that he has no sexual experience.

      By the way, Lion, you’ll love the anomaly of Ithaca and Tompkins County by the Finger Lakes. No upper middle class strivers in the likes of Westchester or the wealthy poseurs in the Hamptons.,_New_York

      The county racial demographics are 85% White and 7% Asiatic. The rest is history for a HBDer like yourself.

      ~60% of its population have a Bachelor’s degree or higher, and 15% have a Doctorate, making it the most educated county in the Finger Lakes region and perhaps in the entire NYS. Not bad for a place by the sticks n stones.

      Ok, what, who's this again?

      September 25, 2020 at 12:43 PM

      • Now that you’re at with Eastern Asiatics and how their countries are the superior for HBDers like yourself:

        Ithaca’s visitor site is perhaps the only tourism website in the country that features a Chinese language functionality, but no Spanish or any other non-English language for the “lesser” groups.

        Ok, what, who's this again?

      • Why bother with Ithaca? For under $700,000 you can get an architecturally distinctive 4,400 square foot house on five acres of land in a fast-growing, low tax city with basically nonexistent crime despite one of the country’s highest rates of gun ownership and full permitless carry rights.–2463000651

  3. Trump’s hemming and hawing about (not) accepting a loss is just more of his alpha-male 5D chess posturing. Of course he will accept a loss if that’s what the voters hand him, and of course he’s not setting the foundations for a dictatorship. He’s many things, but he’s neither crazy nor delusional.
    Plus anyway I think he will win again. The pollsters have learned nothing since 2016, their polls will be wrong again, and 538-types will spend 4 more years trying to figure out why (“silent Trump voters” says it all; the enduring and lethal social stigma around openly supporting bad Trump).
    This recent Unherd article points out more reasons:


    September 25, 2020 at 10:00 AM

  4. He’s not the legitimate president because he didn’t win the popular vote (even though the system set up in the Constitution for selecting the president has nothing to do with the popular vote).

    Ever since the 2016 election, they’ve ramped up their rhetoric against the Electoral College, saying that institution itself is basically illegitimate since it doesn’t reflect the will of the people (even though they used to be against majoritarianism and the popular vote when they knew the majority didn’t agree with them.)


    September 25, 2020 at 11:14 AM

    • According to credible sources, Trump lost the popular vote by a measly 2 million. That’s small potatoes and not accurate when you look at the county map for Meriprolestan that was intensely red and not really blue and you can’t hide the fact.

      Ok, what, who's this again?

      September 25, 2020 at 2:06 PM

    • Trump lost by almost 3 million votes. President Trump will lose the popular vote by a larger margin this time due to change in demographics and winning red states by smaller margins.


      September 25, 2020 at 4:53 PM

  5. Lawyers working for the Trump campaign recently leaked to some reporters the idea of getting Republican state legislatures in some swing states to appoint Trump electors even if Biden won the vote. The legislature would claim voter fraud and say Trump would have won so they are installing his electors.

    While this might theoretically be possible, there are a lot of obstacles. All the states have laws that specify how electors are selected. The legislature would have to change those laws, right after the election and this change would have to be signed by the governor. Most of the swing states have Democratic governors who would veto this change. I don’t think Republicans have the super majority needed to override the veto in any of the swing states. You might be able to do this in Florida. (Florida is already engaged in massive cheating to try to steal the state for Trump.)

    So why did the Trump campaign leak this idea if it is not really practical?

    1) Try to discourage Biden supporters from voting by convincing people Trump was going to steal the election anyway.

    2) Try to encourage Trump supporters who may be getting discouraged by how much Trump is down in the polls.

    If the Trump campaign was really planning to steal the election this way, I don’t think they would be leaking it to reporters now. They looked at the possibility of doing this and figured out it was not really practical, so they are leaking the idea to try to skew turnout in their favor.


    September 25, 2020 at 11:21 AM

    • I also doubt that any of the state legislatures will be in session in November or early December. State legislatures, in many cases, are only in session at certain times set by law or if called by the Governor. How swinger states have a Republican Governor, Republicans in both state houses, and would be willing to come back into session to try to swing the electors when the Democrats have won the state.


      September 25, 2020 at 4:56 PM

    • “Lawyers working for the Trump campaign recently leaked to some reporters the idea of getting Republican state legislatures in some swing states to appoint Trump electors even if Biden won the vote. ”

      Claims which can be made without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.

    • It isn’t that simple because the Dem plan seems to be to contest the actual election results themselves in multiple states. There aren’t going to be “winners” at all in multiple states, and State Legislatures will have to declare the winners themselves. That is what would have had to have happened in Florida in 2000 if the SCOTUS hadn’t stepped in. FL Legislature was going to have to pick the winner of the State (and by extension the Presidency). Trump Admin is simply prepping for the Lawfare and Legislative Scheming that both sides are going to employ en mass come November.

      It is going to be a complete and utter mess.


      September 25, 2020 at 10:48 PM

    • The irony of course is that is the same scenario that the Transition Integrity Project ran. In a situation in resembling 2016, with Trump winning the electoral college and the Democrat winning the popular vote…

      “But Mr. Podesta, playing Mr. Biden, shocked the organizers by saying he felt his party wouldn’t let him concede. Alleging voter suppression, he persuaded the governors of Wisconsin and Michigan to send pro-Biden electors to the Electoral College.

      In that scenario, California, Oregon, and Washington then threatened to secede from the United States if Mr. Trump took office as planned. The House named Mr. Biden president; the Senate and White House stuck with Mr. Trump. At that point in the scenario, the nation stopped looking to the media for cues, and waited to see what the military would do. “

      So the Trump team is just playing catch up to the Democratic plans.

  6. Trump threw out some red meat and the Dems, like idiots, went after it. Trump is just misdirecting again. Rather than talking about Trump’s failure on Corona, his lack of a healthcare policy, the massive deficit, the chaos on the streets, the horrendous deterioration of government services and infrastructure, etc., the media prefers to follow a masochistic fantasy that makes them feel morally superior. This is why Dems keep losing.

    Peter Akuleyev

    September 25, 2020 at 12:56 PM

    • And what loses did the Democrat have in the last two years that were caused by chasing the red meat? The Democrats are going to pick up seats in both the House and the Senate this time. A good queston for 2022 is which Republican governors will be vulnerable if President Trump is re-elected.


      September 25, 2020 at 4:58 PM

  7. They said this about George W. Bush, too. The Democrats are really afraid that with all their voter fraud and illegals voting that Americans won’t accept the results. Its possible that this time a revolt of citizens will happen one way or the other.
    The polarization is perfect for a shooting war. The media keeps stoking the flames. At some point they might realize they went too far, but by that time it will be far too late to stop it.
    I predict that neither side will accept a result against their candidate. The Left is already being violent so they will just ramp it up when Trump wins. A Trump loss seems unlikely. Biden cannot even put in a full day of campaigning anymore. He’s toast in the debates.
    Trump claims that Biden is using drugs to fight senility. He might well be. He certainly makes enough mistakes with his teleprompter to seem he’s on something. He cannot even read well anymore.
    The polls were wrong last time.I do not expect them to be any better now. Most pollsters are oversampling Democrats in their polls. I think they expect some noncommitted voters to vote for a perceived winner.

    • What shooting war?

      All that is needed is cutting the power, the water, and the food shipments to Democrat blue-state cities to win. These idiots are going to learn the hard way what siege warfare really is.

      Antifa operates now by rioting and then going to some tent city or hotel to sleep all day. Once food and utilities go, Antifa and BLM are helpless.


      September 25, 2020 at 6:26 PM

    • What voting fraud? There is no evidence of Democratic voting fraud, it is a Republican fantasy on the same level with Dems worrying about coups.

  8. Everyone should remember that the decrease in black turnout in 2016 versus 2012 and 2008 was blamed on Republican voters suppression versus the trend that black voters did not want to vote for an old white woman. Also, Hillary Clinton was hated by a large number of people in DC to include many Democrats. Hillary Clinton did not mind irritating people with no thought to the future.

    There are fewer people in DC who hate Biden versus Hilllary Clinton. Also, there are a massive number of people who really hate Trump and the entire Trump Clan. That is whether some of the money for the Never Trumpers is coming from.

    If President Trump manages to eke out another electoral college, the second term will make the first term look great. Image an inauguration surround by riots and burning buildings. Will any college or high school want to send their students to DC for an inaugural parade during Covid-19, protests, riots, and the refusal of local government to assist with security and planning.

    There are 21 Repubican Senators up for re-election in 2022. IF Trump is re-elected, how few will even bother to run for re-elect and try to defend the incompetence of the Trump Administration.


    September 25, 2020 at 4:43 PM

    • As long as those senators are not anti-Trump, they will be easily re-elected.


      September 25, 2020 at 6:27 PM

      • IN 2022, the Repubicans could have senators in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Florida that will be vulnerable. If President Trump’s approval ratings are below 40% (a good assumption), then Ohio and Indiana will come into play.

        Also, several of the Republican governors who have made fools of themselves in 2020 with Covid-19 response could be vulnerable.


        September 26, 2020 at 10:21 AM

      • Baloney. The only Republican governors that are vulnerable are those who follow Cuomo.

        You think Kristi Noem is vulnerable?


        September 27, 2020 at 1:03 AM

      • Vulnerable Repubican governors: Ducey in Arizona, Kemp in Georgia, Desantos in Florida, Holcomb in Indiana, Parson in Missouri for a start. Of course, South Dakora has the gast growing indicants of Covid-19 after Gov. Noem decided that being an internet Troll was the purpose of being governor.

  9. Re: Your agreement that blacks have lower IQs.

    It’s apparent that blacks are the main “victims” of “White” gentrification or displacement. Not only are blacks displaced in major urban areas where multiculturalism is marketed as a consumption model for the SWPL and professional classes, you’ll see it in the sticks n stones like the Hudson Valley. Decrepit city-towns like Newburgh and Poughkeepsie along the Hudson River with their significant population of blacks are of the same trajectory. blacks who live in urban areas are remnants of the old industrial-manufacturing model that is no longer relevant to them. Much of the heirs from the heavy industry, White prole majority have moved on to other prole occupations that are less labor intensive or even cool in a Hipster realm, while non-black immigrants have replaced blacks for work that is also prole but less desirable to the White prole demographic. A good example are Hispanics replacing blacks for all kinds of low skilled menial work. One faltering trait of blacks is their lack of cohesiveness or tribalism that matters. Other groups are heavily invested on their own, business and hiring practices are centered on their own people either from a racial aspect (when it comes to Whites) or an ethnic or a linguistic aspect (when it comes to groups like the Hispanics). So a city-town like Newburgh or Poughkeepsie is heavily populated by blacks, but there is absolutely no black capital invested in any of these places to allow blacks have more of an equal footing with other groups. Hispanics construct homes, take over certain buildings by pooling capital among their members and opening up restaurants and supermarkets for their own, while Whites are also doing the same, except in a more sophisticated manner that makes the city or town “multicultural” or “welcoming”.

    Ok, what, who's this again?

    September 26, 2020 at 11:13 AM

    • Right. So what is the solution? It seems clear that throwing most blacks to the mercies of the free market is not much more humane than throwing people with down syndrome into the market. Neither the GOP nor the Dems is willing to address this. Although really, lower IQ whites aren’t able to be productive in our information age society either but the odds of them having some family and community support are somewhat better than for lower IQ blacks. We are creating a society with a massive underclass that simply consumes without creating value. The profits from that consumption accrue to the 1% and the costs are borne by the productive people in the middle. This is not sustainable.

      • Decrepit eye sores aren’t mostly a White phenomenon.

        Do you know of any boarded up White ghetto where the residents are gang banging constantly and the police are keeping tabs on them? No, it’s really a black problem.

        America is only about the free market. The essence of having black people is the same way diseases drive the market forces for the medical and pharmaceutical industries.

        Before the pandemic, Governor Cuomo had previously set aside money for regions north of the city to revitalize their downtowns. First priority was given to towns that have a large prole population, understandably that Whites are able to create burgeoning living spaces when provided with capital. The same cannot be said of blacks.
