Without a miracle it's looking like the Harris/Biden is going to end up in the White House, but maybe things down-ballot could be worse.

  • Looks like Republicans are going to retain the Senate, so hopefully the more bat$hit crazy of Harris/Biden's agenda will have a tough time seeing the light of day
  • There is a conservative majority in the Supreme Court.
  • It also looks like the left's dreams of packing SCOTUS are going to face pretty long odds, too.
  • Pelosi is going to face tough opposition in keeping her seat as Speaker... not that her replacement would be much better, granted.
  • The media and pollsters' predicted landslide and Democrat takeover of the House and Senate completely failed to materialize. Hopefully this will cast them into even further doubt as institutions.
  • The "woke" and progressives were rejected in ballot initiatives nationwide... not everywhere, but in many places thought to be long lost to rational thinking.
  • You guys remember this epic speech? Mark Robinson was just elected Lt. Governor of North Carolina.

It may be rough four years if the election goes their way, but maybe we can gain some measure of positivity out of it all.

What else?

Don't concede the election yet, just because the MSM is telling you that it's all but over. They're full of shit and they want everyone to think it's a done deal. The more people believe and accept that, the harder it's going to be to conclude otherwise as the actual facts eventually come into focus.

Nevada can't seem to count votes and Trump is behind by .6% with 25% to go. This isn't decided unless more flips occur.

We picked up more seats in the house, not sure how many, not a majority but potentially enough to help obstruct given a few democrat defectors on highly controversial issues.

Democrats know in 2024 if a less controversial Republican candidate is brought forward the odds are tough for them to retain the presidency. They are not going to be so sure about pushing extreme agendas even if Biden wins.

But I remain concerned over the senate until the fat lady sings. We freakin need at least a slim majority there.

My biggest concern with a Biden/Harris presidency isn't what makes it through Congress for him to sign, it's what he'll do by EO. It's also the fact that he'll pick up where Obama left off in purging people from federal departments and agencies who aren't onboard with their plans.

Well, guess I'll take a 4 year news/media blackout. No way in hell I can listen to Harris [puke2] spewing socialist propaganda and telling me how evil I am as a gun owning white male. And if he doesn't just retire or croke early,, creepy Joe's mumbling nonsense. Tuning it all out...IF it happens.

Inroads into the Black and Hispanic vote, CNN saying Cuban don't count because they are "white". AOC being blamed for the loss of hispanic votes, Dem operatives saying "defund" cost them big with normal people. Pissed off R base ready to take the house in '22.

JFC. Shoot your TVs or shoot yourselves. Trump won and Trump will prevail and it will be better than 'deadlocked fake bipartisanship screw everyone as usual' that some retards have a hard on for returning to. If you think Trump lost, you need to readjust your brain, how you think and where your info comes from.

If Biden ends up winning he will be faced with an opposing Senate and a 6-3 Supreme Court.

There is that to look forward to. Progressives always seem to eat their own when they don't get their way.

Dude the establishment GOP is not an opposing force to the donks. Haven't you noticed. Roberts is not our guy, Gorsuch is squishy and I have serious doubts about ACB.

Trump doesn't go anywhere and neither do the people who voted for him. For lack of a better analogy if Trump isnt able to stay in the white house he is our Obi - Wan Kenobi and striking him down will make him even more dangerous to the democratic establishment. The amount of fury he will unleash on social media and conservative outlets from tv to podcasts to email lists will be epic. He will be the specter in the room at every single dem and rep war game think tank...sitting in the corner yelling "WRONG" every time they try to lie on the debate stage. This will be a long fight...decades likely and Trump is not the only figurehead but I believe he started something bigger than himself or all of us. More than ever we have PROOF that our government isn't in it for the people and everyday that passes the foundation cracks gets wider.
Throw away the blackpill friends. This is our battle of concord and the fight has just begun. There are no election results right now. Only litigation and speculation. Have faith

Agreed on the impediments to Liberal Lunacy particularly via firearms law/gun grabbing. Without a senate majority, without the SC, without the "mandate for new restrictions" (Gun Control down big time in priority polls)...a potential Biden admin will be largely toothless.

Sure, there will be a verbal assault on our ears as they continue to shovel sh*t, but we'll be happily buying and building scary black guns this time next year and shooting them with ammo that will not be astronomically priced. Such is my prediction...

I cant provide evidence but Im hearing many ammo manufactures have slowed or halted production in the last few weeks. Not sure what that means and I hope im completely wrong

What possible reason would they have for doing that? It's not like they're having trouble driving the market price up.

I wonder why they would do that when every economic incentive exists to make and sell what the market will bear. Of course I could be missing something...wouldn't be the first time.

We also picked up a bunch of House seats. Look at all the "unknowns" left on the tracking websites. Almost all of them are GOP leading by a decent margin. 21 by my last count. Plus the 190 already secured and we're at 211. 217 is majority. Awful close for comfort.

As I said for the last several weeks, if I was the DNC, I would have quietly torpedo'd Biden's bid. Make him an outcast somehow and jettison him off. Let Trump win another 4 years. You'll take a bunch of seats in 2022 and all but guarantee an 8-year Dem president in 2024.

Nope. They chose the short game. And lost. So they'll get Joltin Joe in there, a weaker House, still no Senate and likely lose ground in the next 2 cycles. As I've ALSO said in the last several weeks, they sure could have used a Howard Dean. Brazierre, Washer-Shirts and Shimon Perez are not who you want in charge when looking at STRATEGY.

As Moses did in Exodus, Trump is carrying nearly the entire Republican party out of slavery and towards the promised land of true, constitutional, conservative activism. Now it's up to Crenshaw, Ernst, Cruz, Cotton, Jordan, Meadows, McCarthy, Noem, de Santis, and the other firebrands of the right to take on their share of the burden and prepare for 2022 and 2024. McConnell's knowledge and skill in working the senate are invaluable, but he has to join the team fully.

I think we will see in this election litigation whether or not John Roberts is being blackmailed by the Left. Have yet to see a verification of whether that was him listed on Epstein's flight logs.

I just wish the Republicans had a better candidate, one that could have brought more Independents/ Libertarians into the fold....
