CNN, Fox News, plus all three broadcast networks have declared Joe Biden the 46th president of the United States. But you wouldn’t know it from Democrats and liberals.
Sure, Democrats have lost House seats, but it will almost certainly remain in Democratic control.
Sure, it looks as though Democrats won’t control the Senate, although they managed to flip a few seats in that chamber.
But if mainstream media can be believed, they got the big enchilada --- the White House --- yet they sound like sore winners.
And Joe Biden, who campaigned on restoring the soul of the nation, appears oblivious.
After news media projected the race for Biden, the former vice president called for everyone to come together in the spirit of "kumbayah."
"It's time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again," Biden said. "And to make progress, we have to stop treating our opponents as our enemies. They are not our enemies. They are Americans. They are Americans."
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) repeated the Biden campaign’s mantra Saturday.
"The Biden-Harris administration will restore the soul of this nation and bring us together as One America," they tweeted.
As the DNC repeated Biden’s message, hundreds of thousands of Trump supporters converged on Washington, D.C. in a peaceful demonstration of support for the president ---win, lose, or draw.
At one point President Trump even drove past in a motorcade and waved at his supporters, as they chanted "USA! USA!" and "Four More Years!"
And the event remained peaceful until Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists stepped in.
The Daily Caller’s Jorge Ventura shot video of the chaotic scene as far-left activists attacked Trump supporters, knocking one unconscious.
"Lives Matter" producer Drew Hernandez posted a clip of a Trump supporter sitting on the ground with blood streaming down his face.
Andy Ngo, editor-at-large fir The Post Millennial, published a Hernandez clip of an older man being assaulted as he tried to leave the area after the march.
Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., wondered where Biden was in all of this.
"The radical Left’s violent attacks on @realDonaldTrump’s supporters last night in DC are disgusting and horrendous. Political violence has NO place in America," he tweeted. "Why hasn’t @JoeBiden condemned this violence? Where is his message of unity now?"
But it wasn’t just far-left thugs who didn’t get the "peace and love" memo. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told Senate Republicans to just "get over it."
"Schumer on GOPers contesting election" Fox News congressional correspondent Chad Pergram reported: "The margin is not even close. No court is going to overturn this election. Joe Biden will be installed as president. So Republicans, get over it. Stop spending all your time spreading lies about the election."
Again, why the violence and rhetoric? Could it be they know it’s not really over?
ABC News projected Saturday that when the Electoral College meets on Dec. 14, Biden will be awarded 306 electoral votes to the president’s 232, which sounds insurmountable. Of those states media has projected Biden the winner:
- Arizona has 11 electoral votes; Biden leads by 0.32%.
- Georgia has16 electoral votes; Biden leads by 0.28%
- Wisconsin has 10 electoral votes; Biden leads by 0.62%
- Pennsylvania has 20 electoral votes; Biden leads by 0.93%
The president would need to flip states totaling at least 37 electoral votes for an outright win, which could be done if he reverses Arizona, Georgia, and Wisconsin.
However, if he reverses the outcomes in Georgia and Pennsylvania, that would bring the candidates to a tie at 269 each. In that event the election would be determined by the U.S. House of Representatives when the new Congress meets in early January.
But rather than a vote by individual members, it would be settled by states, with each state delegation granted one vote. Because Republicans will control 28 of the state delegations, the president would more-than-likely be re-elected.
It’s still a long-shot, but it’s not impossible, especially given issues centering on Dominion Voting Systems, in use by some 2,000 jurisdictions within 30 states.
"Curiously, in the very, very close states where Trump lost by less than 1%, it's those machines that are being used," Trump legal team coordinator Rudy Giuliani said on "The Cats Roundtable," Sunday on WABC 770 AM, New York.
"It looks like it is a Canadian company; it actually is a company owned by two Venezuelans that's been in business for about 20 years and been disqualified in so many places it would make your head spin."
And maybe that’s why Schumer demanded that the GOP "get over it" and accept the results --- because it’s really not as close as he’d have you believe.
And maybe that’s why Newsmax isn’t in a rush to call the election.
