USA Federal Election Timeline

Dec. 8 — Last day for states to resolve election disputes

States must certify election outcomes at least six days before the Electoral College meets — known as the “safe harbor” deadline — if they want to avoid Congress getting involved in resolving potential disputes. That means any court challenges to state election results must be settled by Dec. 8, 2020.

If states certify election outcomes by this deadline, Congress must accept the results as valid.

Dec. 14 — Electors cast their ballots

Electors meet in their respective states to cast their ballots for president and vice president on the second Monday after the second Wednesday in December.In every state except Nebraska and Maine, electors vote on a “winner takes all” basis, meaning whichever candidate wins the state’s presidential race receives all of the state’s electoral votes.Electors send certificates of their vote to various officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, serving as president of the Senate.

Dec. 23 — President of the Senate receives electoral vote certificates

Pence must receive the formal electoral vote certificates no later than nine days after electors meet.

Jan. 6 — Congress counts electoral votes

The House and Senate convene for a joint session on Jan. 6 to count electoral votes. Pence presides over the process as president of the Senate and announces the results. The candidate that receives at least 270 out of 538 electoral votes becomes the next president.Any objections to the electoral votes must be submitted in writing and signed by at least one House and one Senate member. If an objection arises, the two chambers consider the objection separately.

Jan. 20 — Inauguration Day

The president-elect and vice president-elect are sworn into office and officially become the president and vice president of the United States on Inauguration Day.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany: America Will Hear from Trump “at Just the Right Moment”

Trump has paused post-election public appearances for now and is letting his legal team do the talking, but Kayleigh McEnany says his moment will come. President Donald Trump has paused post-election public appearances for now, but Americans will hear from him “at the right moment,” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, speaking in her role as an adviser to his reelection campaign, said Thursday.

“[He is] letting this litigation play out, letting his lawyers take the lead on this, while he stays hard at work for the American people on COVID and other matters,” McEnany said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.” “But you will be hearing from the president. You hear from him on Twitter. You’ll be hearing from him at the right moment.”

Trump has not appeared or spoken in public — except for his Veterans Day visit to Arlington National Cemetery on Wednesday — since last Thursday, when he attacked the nation’s electoral system and made claims of widespread voter fraud. Two days later, most in the national media projected Joe Biden as the president-elect, with the president’s campaign reacting through a series of lawsuits in several states.

He has kept up his social media presence, though, tweeting continued accusations about fraud and posting updates on his campaign’s efforts.

Former NV AG Bombshell: AI and Computer Vision Experts Reveal Signature Verification Setting For 200K Ballots Was Manually Lowered to 40% [VIDEO]

100 Percent Fed Up reports – Former Nevada AG Adam Laxalt appeared on Fox News with host Shannon Bream where he discussed how signatures on literally hundreds of thousands of votes were not properly verified.

“It’s important to understand first and foremost, how insecure this system is. We have over 600,000 mail-in ballots that have been counted—those are votes that are official in our system. We also know that we have unclean rolls—ballots that have been mailed to dead people, to people who have moved out of state, and people that got a dozen ballots in their homes, etc.”

“We’ve spoken to AI and Computer Vision experts on this, and they have told us that the registrar reduced the signature verification standard to 40%, ” Laxalt explained. Bream broke it down for her viewers, explaining that people who control the machines that read the signatures and that people who control those machines turned down the settings to more readily accept signatures on ballots. She asked Laxalt, “Is that your allegation? He explained that it’s not an allegation, but a fact, telling Bream that it isn’t an allegation but that it’s been admitted in open court.

Watch….

At the bottom of the tweet, there’s a notice from the Twitter mind-control/censorship team that reads: This claim about election fraud is disputed.

Apparently, no one on the Twitter censorship team spent any time working in Democrat stronghold cities like Philadelphia or Detroit. I can personally assure you that voter fraud and intimidation by paid poll workers and Democrat operatives at polling places and absentee counting rooms is real.

Instead of focusing on pushing for a full investigation into the paid poll workers, Democrat Party agitators, and anyone who was part of a voter fraud scheme to steal votes from a candidate, Twitter simply flags a post that doesn’t align with the narrative of the Democratic Party mainstream media or the Democratic Party leadership, as a “disputed” claim.

BREAKING: Pennsylvania

Poisoning the well of our democracy’

Pelosi & Schumer blast Republicans for ‘denying reality’ in not accepting Biden as president

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) have blasted Republicans who have not accepted that Joe Biden won the presidential race, saying they are “poisoning” democracy.

The harsh words for Republicans refusing to acknowledge Biden’s projected victory while President Donald Trump accuses opponents of voter fraud and waits on the outcome of multiple lawsuits came during a Thursday press conference.

“The election is over. It wasn’t close. President Trump lost. Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States,” Schumer told reporters.

Schumer accused Republicans in Congress of “spreading conspiracy theories, denying reality, and poisoning the well of our democracy.”

On accusations of voter fraud, Schumer said Republicans don’t have evidence to back up their claims.

The senator claims Republicans are “casting doubt” on the election for “no other reason than fear of Donald Trump.”

Military

Former Navy, Marine Corps Top Leaders

A former sergeant major of the Marine Corps and the Navy’s first-ever female four-star admiral are two of the military veterans on President-elect Joe Biden’s government transition teams.

Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris announced this week who will serve on the teams that will help them take over from the Trump administration in January. That’s despite President Donald Trump’s refusal to concede the election, and his administration blocking the Biden teams’ access to governmental departments.

The transition teams for the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs are packed with veterans and policy experts who have previously worked in government, think tanks, tech companies and academia.

Several members selected for the teams referred questions about their work back to Biden’s staff, which told Military.com on Wednesday they are proud that so many involved in the transition are military veterans.

“[The agency review team] members were chosen because they are well-respected in their fields and, in many cases, for their extensive experience in the federal agencies they will now help review for the incoming Biden-Harris administration,” Biden’s team said in a statement. “… It is important for this work to begin to make sure that the Biden-Harris administration is ready to govern on Day One.”

Kathleen Hicks, who served as principal deputy undersecretary of defense for policy at the Pentagon during the Obama administration, will lead Biden’s DoD transition team. Hicks, who’s the director of the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ international security program, also served as deputy undersecretary of defense for strategy, plans and forces.

Meg Kabat, the former director of the VA’s Caregiver Support Program and a licensed social worker, will head up the Biden transition team at the VA. Kabat, currently a senior director at the Atlas Research consulting firm, is one of 14 members on that team.

Joining Hicks on the Defense Department team is retired Adm. Michelle Howard, who was the first-ever African American woman to command a Navy ship. Howard, also the Navy’s first female four-star admiral, planned the famous mission to rescue Capt. Richard Phillips from Somali pirates in 2009.

Retired Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps John Estrada, who also served as U.S. ambassador to his home country of Trinidad and Tobago under President Barack Obama, is on the DoD transition team.

Retired Army Lt. Gen. Karen Gibson, who served with the director of National Intelligence while in uniform, is on the team too. Gibson served in several key senior intelligence leadership positions for operations in the Middle East and Africa.

Suicide rate among veterans up again slightly, despite focus on prevention efforts

The rate of suicide among veterans ticked upwards in recent years despite increased public attention and funding on the problem, according to a new report released by Department of Veterans Affairs officials on Thursday.

However, the latest data still lags two years behind present conditions and does not include any figures from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which mental health experts have warned may be causing even larger increases in the rates of mental distress and self harm among veterans.

The suicide report — which is typically released in early October, but was delayed more than a month this year — shows the rate of suicide among veterans at 17.6 a day in 2018. That’s a slight increase from 2017, when the number was 17.5.

Numerous public figures and public awareness campaigns in recent years have quoted the figure of “20 a day” in reference to veterans suicide, but VA officials last year clarified that estimate also includes active-duty troops, guardsmen and reservists.

From 2005 to 2018, the overall suicide rate has remained largely unchanged, between 17 and 18 veterans a day. That’s in spite of numerous public awareness campaigns, VA outreach programs and new department training mandates enacted over the last two presidential administrations.

After making adjustments for sex and age, veterans suicide was roughly 27.5 per 100,000 individuals in 2018, up from 25.8 per 100,000 in 2016. By comparison, among all U.S. adults, the suicide rate per 100,000 was 18.3.

In raw numbers, the newly released figures mean that the number of veterans who died by suicide in 2018 was 6,435, up less than half a percent as the total veterans population fell by about 1.5 percent. By comparison, as of Thursday morning, there have been 7,032 troop deaths in conflict zones since 9/11 according to Defense Department statistics, Veterans suicides made up about 14 percent of total suicides in America in 2018. VA officials have emphasized in recent years that mental health challenges and suicidal thoughts are not a problem specific to the veterans community.

“Findings documented in this report highlight the continuing and increasing problem of suicide among U.S. adults and among veterans, and the need for ongoing efforts to improve methods of suicide risk mitigation,” the report stated.

In a statement, VA Secretary Robert Wilkie said that despite the lack of overall progress in suicide prevention among veterans, the report does show some areas of improvement.

“The data shows the rate of suicide among veterans who recently used VA health services has decreased, an encouraging sign as the department continues its work and shares what we learn with those who care for and about veterans,” he said.

Proposal: Get Rid of the Marine Corps

Retired Army Col. Douglas Macgregor, newly-appointed as a senior adviser at the Pentagon, has a track record of making controversial statements. But his most provocative of all might be a proposal to do away with the U.S. Marine Corps.

In a 2012 opinion piece for Time Magazine, Macgregor, a decorated veteran of the Gulf War, argued that the Corps was living on its past glories and was unsuited for combat on today’s battlefield, with the possible exception for pushover enemies.

He went further, too, suggesting the acronym “USMC” should really stand for “Under-utilized Superfluous Military Capability.”

“Most of today’s Marine force consists of airmobile light infantry,” Macgregor wrote. “This Marine force is designed for use in the developing world against incapable opponents from Haiti to Fiji, but not much else.”

He took exception to previous remarks from then-Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James Amos on the future of the Corps as “America’s shock force” of agile and adaptable units vital to the nation’s defense against evolving threats.

Macgregor summed up Amos’ assessment this way: “Rah, rah, the Marine Corps is awesome, and all we have to do is make sure they have the equipment & training & facilities they need so they can always be awesome Marines, rah, rah!”

“Wrong,” said Macgregor. “The Marines as currently organized and equipped are about as relevant as the Army’s horse cavalry in the 1930s.”

Macgregor, who has a reputation as an iconoclastic thinker on military strategy and tactics, was brought on as a senior adviser at the Pentagon by new Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller, who was named to the post by President Donald Trump after he fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper via a Twitter post.

The Pentagon announced Wednesday that Macgregor “will be serving as a Senior Advisor to the Acting Secretary of Defense. Mr. MacGregor’s decades of military experience will be used to assist in the continued implementation of the president’s national security priorities.”

Macgregor, a frequent guest on Fox News, has argued for the imposition of martial law at the U.S.-Mexico border with orders for troops to “shoot people” if necessary, to stop illegal immigration.

He has also criticized European countries for being too welcoming to “Muslim invaders.”

Economic

Watch Live: Powell, Lagarde, & Bailey Discuss The Future Of Central Banks

Fed Chair Jay Powell takes the stage at the ECB Forum for Central Banking along with ECB’s Christine Lagarde and BoE’s Andrew Bailey. The central bankers will discuss economic stabilization in a dramatically changing environment. We suspect the discussion will be short and will go something like this:

“we’ll do whatever it takes to ensure stocks don’t drop… and while we will pressure politicians to bail us out, we’ll monetize all their debt and print even more to keep the ship afloat for just one more term…and ignore the widening inequalities we are stoking while paying platitudes to fighting inequality”

Of course, they will use big PhD words and long-winded sentences to say that, but the bottom line is simple – welcome to Japan!

Shelton to Fed Reserve Board

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), a pivotal moderate Republican vote, says she will vote to confirm Judy Shelton, President Trump’s controversial nominee to the Federal Reserve.

“I’ve had an opportunity to talk to Judy Shelton and I’m going to be supporting her,” Murkowski told reporters Thursday afternoon.

Murkowski’s support signals that Shelton will have enough votes to secure confirmation when GOP leaders bring her to the Senate floor, which could be as soon as next week.

GOP Sens. Susan Collins (Maine) and Mitt Romney (Utah) have announced their opposition to Shelton.

Shelton’s nomination has run a tortuous path through the upper chamber as GOP lawmakers have raised concern over her past support for returning to the gold standard and using monetary policy and inflation to make American exports more competitive.

Her past GOP critics, including Sen. Pat Toomey (Pa.), the incoming chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, softened their stances and announced their support after Shelton backed away from her earlier statements on the gold standard and publicly agreed that the Fed’s policymaking power is limited.

Romney, however, told The Hill on Thursday afternoon he remains opposed to Shelton joining the Fed.

The statistical argument against an alleged Biden win continues to mount

Trump campaign senior advisor Steve Cortes made the case, noting several anomalies and improbabilities that suggest the possibility of fraud and warrant closer inspection.

One of the most glaring issues is the vast difference in Georgia of the number of individuals who voted for President Trump, but not for the state’s U.S. Senate race, versus the number of voters who did the equivalent for Joe Biden.

For the president, it was 818, meaning that of the millions of voters who cast ballots for him, only a little over 800 did not also vote for the Senate race.

For Biden, however, the number was 95,801 — meaning nearly 96,000 people allegedly voted for the former vice president but did not bother choosing candidates in the Senate contest. According to reports, Biden leads the president by about 14,000 votes in the state.

Dems and Globalists Used Ukraine 2004 Election Playbook

Does all of this sound very familiar?

Ambassador John Tefft, Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs

Testimony Before the House International Relations Committee

Washington, DC

December 7, 2004

The following are examples of the most egregious, widely observed and reported examples of election-day fraud on November 21

  • Illegal Use of Absentee Ballots: According to the respected NGO “Committee of Voters of Ukraine” (CVU), massive electoral fraud was committed through the illegal use of absentee voter certificates. For example, people were caught in Dnipropetrovsk and Sumy oblasts with their pockets stuffed with blank absentee ballots that they were using to vote at multiple polling stations.
  • Opposition Observers Ejected: Observers from Our Ukraine and other opposition groups were expelled from most polling stations in eastern Ukraine on Election Day. For example, in Territorial Election Commission (TEC) district number 42 in Donetsk oblast, Our Ukraine observers were kicked out of all but a few polling stations.
  • North Korean-Style Turnout in the East: Turnout in the pro-Yanukovych eastern oblasts was unnaturally high. In several electoral districts, turnout for the run-off round increased by 30 to 40 percent over the first round. In Luhansk oblast, the reported turnout rate hit nearly 96 percent – a number that, to quote the OSCE, even Stalinist North Korea would envy. A similar turnout rate was reported in Donetsk oblast, where 98 percent of the votes went to hometown candidate Prime Minister Yanukovych.
  • Mobile Ballot Box Fraud: In the second round of the election, the number of voters who supposedly cast ballots at home using mobile ballot boxes was double that of the first round. Much of this voting occurred without observers being present and was massively fraudulent. In Mykolayiv oblast, for example, nearly 35 percent of the oblast’s voters purportedly cast their ballots “at home.”
  • Computer Data Allegedly Altered To Favor Yanukovych: There were credible reports showing that that Yanukovych supporters gained illegal access to the Central Election Commission’s computer system and illegally altered vote tabulation data being transmitted by TECs to the CEC.
  • Reports of Opposition Fraud: Yanykovych’s supporters allege that Yushchenko’s supporters stuffed ballot boxes in western Ukraine. But the reports and evidence of pro-Yanukovych fraud greatly outweighed those indicated for Yushchenko.
