Republicans’ Bid To Overturn Joe Biden’s Victory Ends

The Republican bid to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's victory ended early Thursday morning after the Senate voted 92-7 to dismiss a challenge to Pennsylvania's Electoral College vote. The vote ended a nearly 12-hour saga that saw supporters of President Donald Trump mobbing the U.S. Capitol, in a violent incident that left four dead. Senators had returned to their chamber to debate an objection sponsored by Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley after midnight. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who told GOP senators not to engage in this effort to begin with, skipped two hours of permitted debate and went straight for a vote. Hawley was joined by his co-accomplice, Sen. Ted Cruz, as well as Florida Sen. Rick Scott, Mississippi Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith and newly minted...

Pennsylvania Republican state senators refuse to seat Democrat who won his election

Federal Appeals Court Dismisses Trump Campaign Lawsuit Over Pennsylvania Voting

Federal appeals court dismissed a lawsuit by the Trump campaign over Pennsylvania's voting procedures on Friday, paving the way for the issue to escalate all the way up to the Supreme Court. Despite Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani arguing to a lower court that widespread voter fraud occurred in a state where President-elect Joe Biden won by over 80,000 votes, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said “the campaign’s claims have no merit.” The Trump campaign has the option of asking the U.S. Supreme Court for emergency injunctive relief, which would go to Justice Samuel Alito, who would then likely ask his eight colleagues to weigh in. "The activist judicial machinery in Pennsylvania continues to cover up the allegations of massive fraud. We are very thankful to have had the oppo...

Turkey Jails Two Commanders For Life

Two senior Turkish military officers have been jailed for life for involvement in July's failed coup attempt that killed almost 250 people, marking the first conviction related to the putsch, news agencies say.

The court in eastern city of Erzurum could not be immediately reached for comment.

The Sad News Of Trump’s Triumph, By Reuben Abati

“Democracy is tricky; it sometimes ends up as a parody of itself. When the people clamour for change, they can vote with their hearts, and prove impervious to plain sight reason, and overlook likely pitfalls. We can only hope that Donald Trump does not become the symbol of the change that Americans are seeking. That would be sad indeed for the free world.” – Reuben Abati, “Anything Can Happen in America”, The Guardian, March 6, 2016. Earlier this year, I had written a piece titled “Anything Can Happen In America”, from which the quote above is excerpted, but I had virtually no idea that the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election could be so shocking, unthinkable and unbelievable. I was like the pollsters, the cultural activists, the Nobel Laureates, the American media establishment a...

Barack Obama’s Last, Emotional Speech Before US Election Polls Close

After a full, final day of campaigning, Barack Obama appeared last night at a 40,000-strong rally at Philadelphia’s Independence Mall to make his last speech in support of Hillary Clinton. It was personal, emotional and vulnerable. On whether he still believes his campaign slogans Just this week, a journalist asked me if I still believe the optimism I expressed that night in Boston twelve years ago. He said: “The country’s so divided. Hillary’s in such a close race with someone who is in total opposition with all you’ve ever stood for.” “Maybe your vision was misguided”, he suggested. “Or at least very naive.” It was a fair question. I had to acknowledge that I hadn’t counted on the obstruction I’d receive when in office. I didn’t anticipate the way social media would magnify our divisions...

U.S. Justice Department Prepares To Monitor Election

The U.S. Justice Department says it will have more than 500 monitors and observers out Tuesday watching polling sites in 28 states. They'll be looking for any voting rights violations, such as whether voters are discriminated against because of their race or language. "The bedrock of our democracy is the right to vote, and the Department of Justice works tirelessly to uphold that right, not only on Election Day, but every day," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement. This number of observers and monitors is about two-thirds the number of people the department had watching the polls in 2012. The reduction is due to the Supreme Court's 2013 ruling striking down a key portion of the Voting Rights Act, which the department says authorized the use of DOJ observers in states an...

Trump in final stretch pursues new opportunities to reach 270 electoral votes

With hours until Election Day, the wildest U.S. presidential race in memory has grown more competitive in most of the battleground states, although Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton continues to hold a broader path to victory than Republican Donald Trump. The political map suggests that Clinton can lose several key states long assumed to be in her column and still reach the 270 electoral votes she needs to win. Trump, meanwhile, has a new reason for optimism, as a growing number of states appear potentially within his grasp. But to win, he would have to take nearly all of them. The 11th-hour fluidity of the race had the two campaigns scrambling the travel plans of the candidates and their top surrogates. In Trump’s case, it is an effort to grab what he considers emerging opportun...
