NY Times Seems Upset So Many Republicans Believe 2020 Was Stolen

The same NY Times has still failed to cover the news that Hillary Clinton personally authorized the lies about him for the 2016 election, which led to years of investigations, a loss of trust in the FBI, losing the 2018 midterms, and a huge chunk of Democrats believing the 2016 election was stolen. The Times itself had numerous opinion pieces, and opinion pieces disguised as straight news, taking this opinion. But, now (available at Yahoo News if Times’ paywall gets you)

Trump’s Lies About 2020 Election Take Root in Statehouses

At least 357 sitting Republican legislators in closely contested battleground states have used the power of their office to discredit or try to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, according to a review of legislative votes, records and official statements by The New York Times.

The tally accounts for 44% of the Republican legislators in the nine states where the presidential race was most narrowly decided. In each of those states, the election was conducted without any evidence of widespread fraud, leaving election officials from both parties in agreement on Joe Biden’s victory.

The Times’ analysis exposes how deeply rooted lies and misinformation about former President Donald Trump’s defeat have become in state legislatures, which play an integral role in U.S. democracy. In some, the false view that the election was stolen — either by fraud or as a result of pandemic-related changes to the process — is now widely accepted as fact among Republican lawmakers, turning statehouses into hotbeds of conspiratorial thinking and specious legal theories.

How dare they believe this! It’s not like there lots of weird events that happened on election day and for the days after. Things like stopped counting, counting in secret, blocking anyone from seeing what they were doing, that all sorts of ballots suddenly showed up, going mostly for Biden, etc and so on. That there were tons of irregularities with the drop boxes, first of which was that they were mostly not allowed by law.

These fictions about rigged elections and widespread fraud have provided the foundation for new laws that make it harder to vote and easier to insert partisanship in the vote count. In three states, Arizona, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, state lawmakers successfully pushed for investigations that sowed doubt about the results and tested the boundaries of their oversight.

And yet the Times’ analysis also shows that these efforts have encountered significant resistance from key Republican figures, as well as Democrats. In most states, the lawmakers who challenged the 2020 results do not yet have the numbers, or the support of governors, secretaries of state or legislative leaders, to achieve their most audacious aims.

Does the Times remember its own role in the 2016 election aftermath, pushing the narrative that Trump stole it thanks to Putin? How about the narrative that still resides in Democrat heads that Bush stole 2000? The Times did its best to avoid the reality, that Supreme Court ruled based on Florida law. Oh, and that Bush stole 2004, via Ohio this time.

How about the decades long Democrat belief that Bush let and/or made 9/11 happen? Polls show that around 47% of Democrats believe that Bush either let 9/11 happen or made it happen. That it was an inside job. The Times didn’t do much to knock the 9/11 Trutherism down. Nor the whole narrative of their favorite Dem Stacy Abrams having the Georgia election stolen from her. Or, how about the special elections in Georgia for Senate. So, pardon me if I’m not too concerned about Republicans who see the problems with the 2020 election. And you know Democrats will caterwaul if a Republican wins the White House in 2024.

    Much of what conservatives believe to be true is untrue. The Big Lie is the worst since it stems from the boss, DonJon.

  2. Ultra MAGA says:

    “Much of what conservatives believe to be true is untrue.” Even that statement is a lie since it was stolen from Ronald Reagan who observed: “It’s not that liberals aren’t smart, it’s just that so much of what they know isn’t so.”

    The Big Lie as you so foolishly stated is that there was no hanky-panky in the election. PROVE US WRONG.

    The very fact that you corrupt bastards rallied every operative to crush any major investigation, law suit or audit is prima face you know it was STOLEN!

    FJB and the corrupt junta now ruining America. You are all traitors.

      Ultra MAGA rapes old women. PROVE US WRONG! See the foolishness of your claim?

      Not even DonJon believes it was stolen. He is using you.

  3. Professor Hale says:

    If you don’t want people upset about stolen elections, you should probably stop stealing elections.

  4. Elwod P. Dowd says:

    William Teach claims that Dems challenged the 2000 and 2016 elections. Really? Mr Gore lost by a few hundred votes in Florida, but did concede. Did DonJon ever concede? The Russians helped DonJon in 2016 but he actually received more EC votes than Clinton (but lost the popular vote).

    In neither 2000 or 2016 did the Dems engineer an unsuccessful coup as DonJon tRump did in 2020. Did Dems enlist hundreds of local politicians to make certain Republicans won’t lose again?

    We get it. GOPhers want to justify their bad actions by accusing others.

      Full Text of Speech in Which Donald Trump Finally …

      Jan 08, 2021 · U.S. Donald Trump Joe Biden Social media Inauguration. After weeks of refusal, President Donald Trump conceded the November election to President-elect Joe Biden in a video.

      Yes Trump conceeded.

      As for 2016 HRC instituted a COUP against a sitting president which is now on Trial in A DC courthouse. One of many trials to come unless Biden shuts it down.

      The difference between YOUR COUP…DONE IN SECRET, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS and Trumps supposed coup done in front of the whole world by a bunch of whackadoodles.

      The difference? You have to ask yourself which has been more damaging to the country? HRC, FBI, NSA, NDI, CIA and the DNC all conspiring against a sitting president and impeaching him TWICE or a few hundred people arrested for breaking some doors and windows at the Capital nearly all of whom were arrested.

      How many people were arrested by the FBI for HRC’s COUP?

      • Elwod P. Dowd says:

        DonJon supposedly said (through a spokesperson) “Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th.”

        Hardly a concession, but it was reassuring that the authorities wouldn’t be forced to drag him out of the White House.

        The investigation of DonJon was public as were his 2 impeachments. The assault on the Capitol Building by violent DonJon supporters was the only public aspect of the coup. Behind the scenes, DonJon-supporting Senators, Congresspersons, aides, lawyers, advisers and DonJon himself were trying to find “legal” ways to keep him in power. They failed, thank the gods.

        DonJon, the worst president in history, was out of office, but still leads a band of anti-Americans.

          WASHINGTON — A mystery witness fighting a secret fight over a sealed subpoena with a prosecutor who may be Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel investigating the Trump-Russia affair, turns out to be a corporation owned by a foreign government, according to a federal appeals court ruling on Tuesday.

          The three-page ruling by a panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit described the unnamed witness in those terms, but it did not identify it any further, nor did it confirm whether the prosecutor is the special counsel, as has been widely speculated.

          During closed-door oral arguments before the panel last week, court security officers took the unusual step not only of closing the courtroom, but also of clearing the entire floor of the courthouse so that reporters could not see who the lawyers were as they went in and exited.


          For safety concerns, NBC News is not reporting the name of the whistleblower as long as the person remains anonymous. In the complaint, the whistleblower alleges that in a July 25 phone call, Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, who had business dealings in the country, as well as a 2016 election conspiracy theory.

          TRUMP NEVER GOT TO FACE HIS ACCUSER and it was this testimony that led to his impeachment. Hardly Transparent.

          House Democrats on Wednesday continued their closed-door hearings in the Capitol building basement as part of their so-called impeachment inquiry, just a day after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced she would not hold a full House vote to officially launch an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

          REAL TRANSPARENT and if you recall the GOP did not get to ask any questions.

          I could go on and on and on..

          HRC is a criminal who tried to institute a COUP upon a sitting President of the USA using the full might of many 3 letter agencies.

          There is actually no going back from any of this. I believe the USA is a mere year or two away from breaking into several nations because of the impending implosion of the world economy propped up by lunatics at the FED.

            DJt is a criminal who engineered a failed coup upon an elected President.

  5. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Mx porter,

    Have you noticed that neither Dana nor Teach have outright said that DonJon tRump won the election? It’s lack-of-virtue signaling that they don’t point out that tRump lost.

    Wouldn’t you think less of them if they told the truth?

    You and the other dumbasses here may actually believe that DonJon received more votes than President Biden. That’s pretty pathetic.

  6. Ultra MAGA says:

    Now that FJB junta has ruined everything they touched it’s amazing how pathetic you are to keep making excuses for this demented fraud. I think Trump won and I use as evidence your refusal to investigate the shenanigans from the fake fraud election. I also use the videos of the campaign showing 60 people on lawn chairs sitting in painted circles at biden rallies to 25,000 Trump supporters in arenas. I use my observation of Trump out campaigning for months and ahead IN ALL POLLS while FJB sat in his fuking basement scared as shit of Covid.

    The democrat/communists have used every trick in the book to keep a legitimate investigation of the election from happening even as we all saw videos of fraud, windows covered, boxes of ballots being pulled out from under tables, affidavits of witnesses of count fraud and ballot box stuffing. Illegal changes to voting laws in some states and a complete change in vote tallies about 3AM on Nov 4. All bull shit.

    Did you see 2000 Mules? Of course you didn’t. You wouldn’t want to face the truth because you are a traitor and a liar. You can’t even bring yourself you LOOK at what your party did.

    BTW, FJB junta has an approval of 25% but you believe he got 81 million votes? Now who is pathetic?

    One question Dowd. Name one thing FJB has done right. Just one.



    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      President Biden defeated DonJon tRump!
      He got us out of Afghanistan!
      He called Putin an ass!
      Whipped Covid. 72% of Americans vaccinated!
      Infrastructure bill!
      Covid relief!
      Unemployment rate of 3.6%!
      Over 70 Federal judges appointed!

        More Americans died of Covid under Brandon than Trump! Be he whipped covid!

        • Elwod P. Dowd says:

          We’ve heard from connies that no one died from Covid. Which is it?

          Over 4000 deaths/day when President Biden took over. Yesterday 144.

          • CarolAnn says:

            Are you claiming Biden cured Covid? Cause that’s what it sounds like. When Biden “took over” (literally) we were in the midst of a pandemic. Now we are not. Do you believe Biden made the pandemic go away?

          • Elwod P. Dowd says:


            We made no such claim. But the facts are that when he took office some 4000 Americans were dying from Covid every day. Yesterday (5/23) there were 47!

            Thank you President Biden!!

            According to the American right everything that happens during a presidential term is attributable to the president, except if the president is a Republican.

    • Elwod P. Dowd says:

      Commenter: I use as evidence your refusal to investigate the shenanigans from the fake fraud election

      Just another winger lie. Much of what wingers claim is true is actually false.

      Recounts, investigations, winger audits – in states dominated by Republicans – couldn’t find even 11,000 votes for DonJon!
