Slashpol have become a goldmine of salt. If you could harvest it, you could build enough molten salt reactors for USA to cover its need for energy for the next century wwww.

It's already 0.5% in PA, and it will finish over 1% difference for Biden, so no recount even needed. Meanwhile Trump unhappy with his legal team. The stupid shit thinks lawyers can invent reasons and trash opponents with legal demerits like he did all his life to innocent people, here too. He's been used to bully and batter people into submission all his life, but here, he's powerless.

Here's a post from another forum

When you have such a strong engine at play, people can defend their opinion here - their vote, opposed of business situations when there's no witness to support the truth against the big fucker lawyer team that can invent or exaggerate stuff and make it stick. And even if there is a witness, can be easily payed off, because... capitalism. Not here.

Reports are that a majority of Trump's team want him to concede and cut their losses, but the top insiders are resisting.

Trump fired all the smarter people, and replaced them with loyalist

Noted left-wing rag the Murdoch-owned Wall St. Journal calls on Trump to concede.

Whoa. New from @wsj editorial page(!): “Mr. Trump’s legacy will be diminished greatly if his final act is a bitter refusal to accept a legitimate defeat.” https://wsj.com/articles/the-preside...mobilewebshare

Conceding would be reasonable, and I'm sure many have advised him to do just that. On the other hand, his ardent supporters are telling Trump he'd be the biggest chump if he conceded. Considering his personality, he is likely to listen to the latter

I don't think Trump is an idiot, nor that Biden is senile. Biden simply is rusty but he has clear thought, while the other one is an immoral bastard, much more harmful than a simpleton.

Silly him for thinking it went without saying. I guess after 4 years of Trump it doesn't.

(You know the Drug Enforcement Administration isn't there to force people to do drugs, right?)

Trump won't concede as that will force him to publicly admit that he lost, and he can't stand that.

If it were up to him, he never would have lost. Good thing the presidency in the last 4 years wasn't up to him. Wait, what!?

I don’t think he will concede but resign with the explanation that he is afraid democrats will have him thrown in prison after they “illegally stole the election” And then have pence pardon him. Cohen mentioned campaign finance laws he potentially broke in paying off the porn stars. Then there is the 800k he might have funneled to Ivanka and then wrote off. He would have to admit it but His tax returns aren’t likely to be hidden anymore once he loses the presidency since that was one of his only argument for keeping them hidden.

If he funneled money to Ivanka like the report mentioned that could count for tax evasion or fraud. She is an employee not an independent consultant. That is on federal income taxes. His own former attorney Michael Cohen said they could use the campaign finance laws broken in paying off the porn stars as an excuse to have pence pardon him.

Trump is probably afraid of the qanon base. He was the chosen one. He can't betray their expectations and concede.

If he did not concede and was ousted, he could use that investment to spin a redemption arc story and start his own True American Party . But I don't think the GOP would want someone splitting the vote like that.

As I saw elsewhere, the only way Trump is probably coming out of the White House is being dragged while kicking and screaming, probably by either Secret Service or even a law enforcement agency.

Basically, Trump's built too much of a certain image to concede peacefully... and there's reports that the second his presidency protection goes away, the courts in NY are throwing him straight into prison. So Trump will fight tooth and nail to stay in the WH.

They're projecting the winner as Biden... I realize that no matter which count you follow, PA gives enough votes no matter what. But I'm going to remain paranoid until it's beyond "projected" and becomes "Confirmed"

EDIT: Well, for right now I'll believe that's it's official (though as for this point, while Biden does have a good lead, it's only at 98% reporting)... I'll say this much: America, Congratulations and you get the rest of the weekend off. But come Monday... BACK TO WORK!

Seriously, the next six months are going to continue to be a shitshow and working to fix said shitshow.

I can't understand how they counted just several thousands votes in the last 15 hours or so, it's like they've been asleep. PA should be nearly over. Actually it's the weekend, and the staff might be less than half what it was during working week, that would explain it.

That black guy crying on CNN studio sent a clear message: bullying isn't always working, and bullies might get punished, like dragged out of the White House despite their over 70 million bulling supporters. Feels good honestly, even if that number is nothing good.

Looks like in lieu of riots, we got parties in the streets! That's democracy for you!

LE: People here did not take me seriously when I said I see riots and many people being hurt if Trump wins, and these parties in the streets and people celebrating just confirm to me that I was right. They were about to snap and all that tension transformed into joy now plainly obvious. It's a relief to see.
