The real issue for the USA is 90 days with no leadership - Trump is a feckwit with no power, Biden is the king of creating working-parties but again with no power - by the time January 25th comes around the US will be utterly trashed.


'will be utterly trashed'?
I think it already is - the US has been a laughing stock for years.
It's a giant lunatic asylum.

Eh, bin Laden was more like al-Baghdadi*.

Soleimani was a major general of a UN member state we weren't/aren't at war/armed conflict with.

*Yeah, he blew himself up instead of being killed by US forces but that's a minor detail.


No, Soleimani was a major player in organising terrorist atrocities.
His job does not protect him from the consequences.

So what are you saying... that election fraud and rigging can't possibly exist, but then all of a sudden it can exist?
So it can only exist if Trump does it?

Seems to be much of the same BS to me.

The Trump cult shouting fraud and the leftist cult shouting no fraud.
What is plainly obvious if that anything does happen to shift the election the very FIRST thing the leftist cult will do, ironically, is shout FRAUD!

Probably best to just follow the process and see what transpires.

Trump has become a dictatorship, disagree with his thinking and you are sacked, he is doing what any sociopath does he is deflecting any cause of a loss, his handling of multiple issues shows his empathy,

Some interesting tidbits about the election:
• The state where Trump received the most votes? California (5.9 million). The state where Trump lost by the largest vote total? California (5.1 million).
• There are two things in common for every Democratic presidential ticket that received over 50% of the popular vote since Carter-Mondale in 1976: (1) Joe Biden was on it, and (2) the other person was a minority.
• The Biden-Harris ticket is the first winning presidential ticket since Carter-Mondale in 1976 where neither candidate holds an Ivy League degree.
• Biden is the first Democratic presidential candidate since Truman in 1948 to win both Georgia and Arizona in the same election.
• This year is the largest turnout as a percentage of the voting eligible population since 1900.

Every President ever elected has full dictatorial power within the Executive branch. That is how the US system of Govt was designed by the founders.
The checks and balances do NOT come from within the Executive branch, they are designed to come from the Judicial and Legislative branches.

Once laws are set, the President has COMPLETE and TOTAL power - solely - to apply those laws.

If the President steps outside the law to try and excerpt power, the Judicial branch puts a stop to it.

Within the Executive branch, disagreeing with a President is one thing - although he has the absolute power to fire anyone who disagrees with him - but running to the press or releasing official statements that are not in agreement with the President is most certainly a valid reason to be fired.
The entire Executive Branch is there to serve the President and acting in a way counter to the President PUBLICLY is not acceptable.
Anyone in the Executive Branch who disagrees with the President can, of course, voice their disagreement, but they should do it PRIVATELY and if their argument does not win the day, they should follow orders.

ALL Presidents fire people who undermine them - for example, Obama fired General Flynn for going against his will and contradicting the official WH messaging on ISIS.

The left, over the last 4 years, seem to have a massive misunderstanding of Presidential power and have spent the time falsely making claims of abuse of power or making slurs around 'dictatorship'.
I will wait to see if they make the same claims and slurs during Bidens tenure in office.

I never understood American Christians. They are different from any other Christians in the world. How can they love a man like trump so much? Somehow trumps has 10s of million loyalist who will pour money to him next four years after this debacle is over. He will tease with running for 3 years before dipping out for good

People are free to choose their beliefs and how they practice their religion in the USA - that's a good thing.
The 'supply side' that are you are talking about is more extreme in the USA, with dodgy preachers et al, but there again people tend to bombarded with all sorts of ideologies on a hourly basis these days.
I find the religious 'market' in the USA to be no more extreme than the political 'religion' pushed by the media - and actually far less dangerous.
