Joe Biden delivers a Thanksgiving address at the Queen Theatre yesterday in Wilmington, Delaware, USA

Biden on Wednesday delivered a Thanksgiving address in Wilmington, Del., calling on Americans to unite in protecting their communities as they celebrate the holiday this year amid the raging coronavirus pandemic.

Minutes earlier, Trump called in from the White House to an informal meeting of Pennsylvania lawmakers, repeating baseless claims about the election being “rigged.”

“This election has to be turned around,” Trump said

Joe Biden will give a speech later today highlighting the challenges facing Americans as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches and the nation faces a surge in coronavirus infections and a wave of unpopular health restrictions.

The address is meant to encourage Americans and focus on the sacrifices they are making during the holiday season, his office said, as officials across the country plead with Americans to stay at home and avoid large gatherings that can spread Covid-19.

To recap…

…The Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Arizona asking judges to stop state officials from certifying the vote in the US Presidential Election 2020.

Via Wall Street Journal:

Denying Mr. Biden the 47 electoral votes in those three states would block his path to securing a majority. Mr. Biden leads by about 50,000 votes, or 0.75%, in Pennsylvania; by about 146,000 votes, or 2.6%, in Michigan; and by about 13,000 votes, or 0.4%, in Arizona.

Few courts have considered similar requests in the past, leaving few precedents.

[States use their popular vote for president to send a set number of electors to formally vote for president in the Electoral College. The Constitution says state legislatures shall determine how the electors are chosen, leading to speculation about what would happen with deadlocked results.]

Asked about the Trump campaign’s attempts to delay certification in some states, Biden campaign general counsel Dana Remus said Tuesday: “They simply have no evidence, and to succeed in a lawsuit that will stop certification, there has to be evidence of a problem with the process.”

In Pennsylvania, government officials say the law doesn’t allow the Legislature to send up a pro-Trump set of electors.

Arizona is scheduled to certify its election results on Nov. 30. Michigan and Pennsylvania have deadlines of Nov. 23, under most circumstances.

This afternoon.

Via CNN:

Biden is taking calls with leaders of the country’s top allies and appearing on camera, which reflects the inevitability of his ascent to power. Meanwhile the President is staying behind closed doors, tweeting in wild block capital letters and unleashing a purge of the Pentagon’s civilian leadership in what one current defense official called “dictator moves.” And William Cohen, former Secretary of Defense and Republican senator, told CNN’s Don Lemon the administration’s conduct is “more akin to a dictatorship than a democracy.”

Pennsylvania is ground zero for President Trump’s efforts to establish that he won the 2020 presidential race with all legal votes counted. While it is not the only state where Trump is contesting the results, without Pennsylvania, he has no viable path to a majority in the Electoral College.

Lawyers for Trump’s reelection team have raised several issues with how the commonwealth conducted the 2020 election, alleging voter fraud, a two-tiered system for mail-in and in-person voting, a lack of meaningful access for Republican poll watchers, and the acceptance of ballots after Election Day in violation of Pennsylvania election law.

Meanwhile…

Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar revealed  that roughly 10,000 mail-in ballots were received between when the polls closed on Nov. 3 at 8 p.m. and Friday at 5 p.m., the time window considered a grace period after a controversial state Supreme Court ruling.

Many of the 94,000 provisional ballots also mentioned by the Democratic official are still being counted, according to PennLive.com, and 49,000 ballots cast by mail and arrived before polls closed have yet to be tallied.

VOIGHT! FIGHT!

Joe Biden. then American Vice President, Joe Biden with Taoiseach Enda Kenny at Government Buildings in Dublin, June 21, 2016

This afternoon.

In an interview on Midwest Radio….

….the former Taoiseach said he was filled with excitement, joy and gratitude at Mr Biden’s victory. He expects him to have a “massive agenda of restoring some sort of respect for the United States around the world”.

Mr Kenny remarked on the fact that there had been an enormous vote in the US election and suggested this “probably related to the fact that Trump had been very provocative on a number of issues”, which really brought out the “polarised peoples of America to vote”

Via NBC:

More than 48 hours after media outlets projected that Joe Biden had defeated President Donald Trump to win the White House, GSA chief Emily Murphy had yet to sign the letter of “ascertainment” — a previously mostly noncontroversial process since the passage of the Presidential Transition Act of 1963. Signing the paperwork when a new president is elected triggers the release of millions of dollars in transition funding and allows an incoming administration access to current government officials.

With the ascertainment delayed, the Biden transition team has been prevented from meeting with officials heading Operation Warp Speed and other Trump administration coronavirus efforts….

They’re still counting the votes in a handful of the key battleground states in the presidential election – but a look at where the current vote totals stand points to a second straight White House race decided by razor thin margins.

Joe Biden, as of Monday afternoon, had won a record-breaking 75.67 million votes nationally. And President Trump, in defeat, garnered a massive 71.07 million votes.

The margins were tighter in the crucial battleground states that Biden secured to win the Electoral College count.

US Attorney-General William Barr has given prosecutors the green light to investigate allegations of voter fraud but warned they must only be substantial claims.

“Given that voting in our current elections has now concluded, I authorize you to pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of elections in your jurisdictions,” Mr Barr said in a statement.

“Specious, speculative, fanciful or far-fetched claims should not be a basis for initiating federal inquiries.”

Carlo Maria Viganò, Archbishop, former Papal Nuncio to the United States

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano writes:

The world in which we find ourselves living is, to use an expression from the Gospel, “in se divisum” (Mt 12:25). This division, it seems to me, consists of a split between reality and fiction: objective reality on one side, and the fiction of the media on the other.

This certainly applies to the pandemic, which has been used as a tool of social engineering that is instrumental to the Great Reset, but it applies even more to the surreal American political situation, in which the evidence of a colossal electoral fraud is being censored by the media, which now proclaims Joe Biden’s victory as an accomplished fact.

The reality of Covid is blatantly in contrast with what the mainstream media wants us to believe, but this is not enough to dismantle the grotesque castle of falsehoods to which the majority of the population conforms with resignation.

In a similar way, the reality of electoral fraud, of blatant violations of the rules and the systematic falsification of the results contrasts with the narrative given to us by the information giants, who say that Joe Biden is the new President of the United States, period.

And so it must be: there are no alternatives, either to the supposed devastating fury of a seasonal flu that caused the same number of deaths as last year, or to the inevitability of the election of a candidate who is corrupt and subservient to the deep state. In fact, Biden has already promised to restore the lockdown.

Reality no longer matters: it is absolutely irrelevant when it stands between the conceived plan and its realization. Covid and Biden are two holograms, two artificial creations, ready to be adapted time and time again to contingent needs or respectively replaced when necessary with Covid-21 and Kamala Harris. The accusations of irresponsibility thrown at Trump supporters for holding rallies vanish as soon as Biden’s supporters gather in the streets, as has already happened for BLM demonstrations.

What is criminal for some people is permitted for others: without explanations, without logic, without rationality. The mere fact of being on the left, of voting for Biden, of putting on the mask is a pass to do anything, while simply being on the right, voting for Trump or questioning the effectiveness of masks is sufficient reason for condemnation and an execution that does not require any evidence or a trial: they are ipso facto labeled as fascists, sovereignists, populists, deniers – and those labeled with these social stigmas are supposed to simply silently withdraw.

This morning/afternoon.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is “waiting for official results” from the US presidential election before congratulating a winner, the Kremlin said today.

“We consider it correct to wait for the official results to be finalised. I want to remind you that President Putin repeatedly said he will respect the choice of the American people,” said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

…China said today it would follow international custom in making a statement on the US election, when asked why Beijing had not congratulated Democrat Joe Biden on his victory.

“We noticed that Mr Biden has declared election victory. We understand that the US presidential election result will be determined following US law and procedures,” foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin told a daily media briefing.

US President Donald Trump at a campaign rally in Hickory, North Carolina, two days before the US Presidential election

This morning.

US President Donald Trump is planning to bring back his large-scale rallies that were a hallmark of his presidential run, but these will be focused on his “ongoing litigation” as he challenges the results of last week’s election.

Via Fox News:

Trump’s campaign plans to take less traditional path to challenging the results of the election, including holding “a series of Trump rallies” focused on the campaigns ongoing legal efforts in numerous states across the country.

Along with the rallies, Trump is also planning to use obituaries of people who allegedly voted but are actually dead as evidence of the voter fraud he’s been claiming. The campaign is also sending recount teams Georgia, Arizona, and Pennsylvania, with Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., heading up the effort in the Peach State.

“We knew because of the unprecedented early mail-in vote that it was going to take a while. We’re going to have to be patient until the hard work of tallying votes is finished and it ain’t over until every vote is counted, every ballot is counted. But we’re feeling good. We’re feeling good about where we are.”

US Democrat Presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Meanwhile…

“Millions and millions of people voted for us tonight. And a very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise that group of people, and we won’t stand for it.

“This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country. We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election. So our goal now is to ensure the integrity. We’ll be going to the US Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4 o’clock in the morning and add them to the list, OK?

“We will win this, and as far as I’m concerned, we already have.”
