    There’s a nonzero possibility that Trump will prevail between the courts, legislatures and Congress and still win. Not much above zero but certainly the likelihood is nonzero.

    If indeed Trump wins the left-wing will riot, loot and burn the blue cities.

    CTL: Incorrect.

    President Trump WILL be submitting the final official figures to Congress for reapportionment. This is fully within his control, as he will order the Census Bureau to have the figures on his desk before the end of December. Furthermore, it is statutorily required by federal law that the figures be submitted to Congress before the end of December, and as such the President is simply fulfilling the legal requirement to do so.

    Additionally, the Census Bureau always has made estimations in its figures and will be doing so again now under President Trump to determine that numbers of illegal aliens counted and to exclude those illegal aliens for three purpose of the figures President Trump will be submitting to Congress for reapportionment.

    Blue states like California and New York will be losing congressional representation and electoral college votes while red states will be gaining.

    That’s good for America and good for the Jews.

    As a bonus, President Trump will be submitting to Congress final census figures that will exclude and deduct illegal aliens from counting towards congressional apportionment.

    Whatever fraud and/or irregularities are uncovered before the electoral college votes, will only represent a small portion of the actual fraud and irregularities in the voting and counting. In such a constrained and short time frame between election day and the vote certification deadline, it’ll be impossible to weed out all the fraud.

    Charlie: Constitutionally, any state legislature can replace the electors without the governor. (And these legislators are from red districts whose constituents will appreciate and reward them.) And it can only be challenged in the joint session of Congress, presided over by Vice President Michael Pence. Pence can choose to only recognize and present to the joint session the certificate from the legislature, which has constitutional authority.

    London bookies are still accepting, and receiving, bets on who will win and be president. As of today Trump has a 10% betting odds. (Which, funnily enough, is the same odds that Nate Silver from the famous 538 polling firm gave him on November 2, the night before the election. And it is a better odd than Trump was given before the 2016 election.)

    The premise of the OP is correct. If Trump pulls through and wins (whether through recounts, litigation, state legislatures or in Congress), it is a virtual certainty that BLM, Democrats, Antifa and other far-leftists will riot, loot and burn.

    It is notable that rioting and looting is a hallmark of the Democrat-left while virtually unheard of in the right.

    All that said, the president is well-equipped to put down any insurrection by nationalizing the National Guard or by sending the Marines into the cities (as was done by the president in in Los Angeles during the 1990 riots.)

    If he gets into office as a result of the Democrat electoral fraud, his title for the next four years will be “His Fraudulency, Joe Biden Jr.”

    If, as likely, Republicans take back the House at the first midterm elections as opposition parties typically do, they can impeach Biden.

    The Democrats have a long history being masters of election fraud. Famously they stole the 1960 election with LBJ fraudulent producing votes late in the count in Texas and illinois to put JFK over the top. They tried to steal 2000 but were successfully stopped. State and local elections all over the country they have routinely committed fraud in over many decades.

    They think when they and their media allies keep repeating the mantra “fraud is rare” over and over again, they’ll get people to forget their history and believe that.

    “The Supreme Court has no role here.”

    Exactly, correct.

    “It is the *Governor* who certifies the electors, not the legislature.”

    Normally by LAW, correct. But the legislature has the CONSTITUTIONAL right to assert the power of declaring who the state electors are. And constitutional law overrides statutory law.

    “It takes separate votes of BOTH houses of Congress to reject the Governor’s certification.”

    Correct, but irrelevant. Because that’s only applicable if the presiding officer of the joint session of Congress, which is VP Pence, on January 6 presents the governor’s certification. Then it would take both houses to override it. But if Congress receives more than one certification from a state, VP Pence will only recognize the constitutional certification from the legislature to present to Congress while ignoring and not recognizing the second certification from the governor, since the legislature has constitutional priority for this purpose.

    “The Supreme Court, even with 3 Trump justices, will quickly rule that such an action is illegal.”

    The Supreme Court has no role in reviewing the January 6 electoral count in Congress. The constitution assigns that role exclusively to Congress. Another coequal branch of the government (either the executive or judiciary) are not part of this constitutional process.

    On January 6 Congress will declare the final vote tally of the electoral college. Following that the issue is finalized and settled. Vice President Pence, as President of the US Senate and constitutionally the presiding officer of the joint session session, is the final arbiter with his declaration.

    ENS: Laws cannot restrict or change constitutional powers.

    Again, if the legislature asserts its constitutional power and now appoints electors, the only recourse available to anyone disputing their ability to do so would be to dispute it in Congress in January. There is no other remedy than Congress’ decision.

    It is easy to threaten civil war if you don’t get your way. The other side could similarly threaten civil war if you steal the election via fraud, as that would negate democracy. But either way we know how the last civil war turned out.

    The federal Constitution unambiguously permits the legislature to appoint the presidential electors in any manner of their choosing. Which includes changing their method from whatever it was previously set as. There’s no restriction in the Constitution. This is very clear. In any event, if the legislatures now do directly appoint electors, the only recourse for anyone disputing that would be to take it up in Congress on January 6.

    “direct vote by state legislature which was deliberately not authorized by the constitution”

    Actually, the constitution not only specifically did authorize state legislatures to appoint electors in any manner of their choosing, but historically in the early years of the United States state legislatures did directly appoint presidential electors without any public election.

    “If you read the rest of that section and the analysis of it, the underlying facts as to who is an elector has to be based on election day.”

    The constitution says nothing about election day. You’re confusing the constitution with legislative laws. And laws cannot override constitutional provisions.

    If you read the full text of Bush v. Gore (2000), you will see the Supreme Court explicitly stated that state legislatures have the unimpeded constitutional right to directly appoint the electoral college. In fact, the Florida state legislature almost did exactly that in 2000 before they litigation was resolved.

    And once the state legislatures act and directly appoint electors, any party wishing to dispute that fait accompli only has recourse in Congress, not the judiciary.

    se2015: If fraud is found and the courts nevertheless cannot rectify it, the legislatures have standing to act.

    The federal Constitution takes precedence over state laws. This is a fundamental legal principle. Given that the United States Constitution give direct unambiguous authority to the state legislatures alone, state laws purporting to limit that constitutional right are effectively void. And since once the legislature acts only Congress can challenge it, the courts have no standing or ability to interfere with the official act of a coequal branch of government, the legislative branch, as a matter of separation of powers.

    The electoral college is certified on December 8 (by each state), votes on December 14 (in the fifty state capitals) and is counted on January 6 (in Congress.) Those are the dates that officially make one candidate the official winner and President-Elect.

    ENS:

    1. This constitutional procedure is not illegal. It is a process outlined directly in the Constitution of the United States.

    2. The joint session of Congress counting the electoral college on January 6 is presided over, as directed in the Constitution, by the President of the US Senate. The President of the US Senate is a gentleman by the name of Michael Pence. The presiding officer V.P. Pence has the authority to decide which certificates of electoral college received is recognized and announced by him in the joint session. If he doesn’t present a certificate there’s nothing to challenge.

    3. The Presidential Succession Act only is relevant if no one received a majority of the electoral college. If Vice President Pence announces, per the electoral college certificates received from the state legislatures, that President Trump received a majority of the electoral college, that is the end of the matter. President Trump is reelected.

    Furthermore, even IF the Presidential Succession Act had come into play, there’s a legal dispute whether the Speaker can become Acting President, since the Constitution specifies only an “Officer” of the government can assume the powers of the presidency. In legal terms an Officer is only a member of the Executive Branch. Pelosi is only a member of the legislative branch, thus arguably unqualified. So how is this legal ambiguity resolved, you ask? The Justice Department can issue a legal opinion stating the three Speaker isn’t qualified. It is binding. And the head of the Department of Justice is a gentleman by the name of William Barr.

    Amil: You’re simply not following this discussion. It is going over your head. I refer you to Article 2, Section 1, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution. This has nothing to do with districts. Any state legislature can decide how to assign their state electoral college. There’s nothing to litigate. They can change the process at any time, to anything they decide.

    The state legislatures directly awarding the state’s electoral votes to Trump is the Democrats nightmare scenario because they know it is fully in line with the constitution and the Republicans control the levers of power to effect this maneuver, with the Democrats being helpless to stop it.

    The beauty of this upcoming plan for the state legislatures that is now being formulated when it comes into fruition as likely, IY”H, before December 8, is that the Republican legislators in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona and Georgia are from red local districts that voted for Trump and whose voters will appreciate and reward their representative for having reelected President Trump, and rectified the fraud perpetuated against him.

    There’s a trend:

    Bill Clinton pressured Israel into Oslo and otherwise was heavy handed against Israeli settlement policies.

    George W. Bush laid off Israel on settlements and otherwise was supportive of Israel.

    Barack Obama condemned Israel at the UN and otherwise opposed Israeli policies.

    Donald Trump was the most supportive of Israeli policy in American history, recognized Jerusalem, the Golan, moved the embassy and numerous other favors for Israel.

    Is Biden coming from the Bush/Trump school of thought or from the Clinton/Obama school of thought?

    You decide.
