WASHINGTON, D.C. – Joe Biden has been elected President of the United States.

After tedious counting of legally-cast votes since polls closed Tuesday night, Joe Biden has rounded up at least 290 Electoral College votes – 20 above the threshold of 270 needed to win. Today, Pennsylvania (20), Arizona (11) and Nevada (6) were all called in favor of Biden, putting him well over the top. Typical red state Georgia remains in favor of Biden but has not been called yet; he leads by about 7,000 votes there with 16 electorals on the line.

Kamala Harris is his Vice President.

Donald Trump will be a one-term President – the first since George H.W. Bush was defeated by Bill Clinton in 1992. He refuses thus far to concede the election and is holding press conferences and numerous tweets disparaging the American voting system.

Joe Biden will be sworn in on January 20, 2021.

    You lie almost as much as Trump. If there was voter fraud, Trump should shut up and let the states handle it. Now we see the dictator has fired the Defense Secretary and is poised to fire the FBI Director, the CIA director, and others who are in charge of our country’s security. It is getting scary folks.

    I’m so sick of hearing allegations without a shred of proof! When will people just freaking learn to grow up?! Will you whiny snowflakes accept results from investigations? I doubt it, you’ll still be whining and crying foul because that is all you know how to do when YOUR man loses fair and square.

    It’s kind of like claiming you’re apart of the majority even though vote counts prove otherwise. This is happening for the 2nd consecutive election. Rinse, repeat. Every freaking time!

      I don’t see it this time. Al Gore lost Florida on technicalities … “hanging chads” if I recall correctly. DJT would need to prove fraud or some other problem in multiple states.

        Yes and more than a vote here or there. He needs a lot of fraud to win. Knowing DJT, he is trying right now to have his minions create those so called fraudulent votes by the hundreds. But the trump crew will not get another election like they want.

        Turns out, there has been voter fraud in multiple states. Statisticians have already observed a whole lot of dead people managed to vote in states like Pennsylvania and Michigan. If you care about the integrity of our system, the only solution is another election. This time if you want to vote, you do it in person WITH an ID.

          Republican politicians would love another election because they lost the presidency, however, they won a multitude of House seats and state offices in all states. Should we doubt those results too? By holding another election, the republicans hope to keep those people who voted by mail out of the selection process. They also hope a new election will result in even more trump voters voting and fewer Biden voters. What this election tells us is that many Republicans voted for Biden because they realize that Trump isn’t the answer to the problems this country faces. He is caustic, divisive, self-serving and a detriment to our foreign relations. Guess who will pay for another election? Taxpayers, at a tune of around $2 billion. That would fit right in with the Republican (Trump) plan to bankrupt the country.

            Was 2016 decided by voter fraud or antiquated equipment malfunction? I guess sane folks are a little more concerned about voter fraud deciding an election.

            My, you just don’t get it, Trumps plan was to make foreign relationships fair. Our trade is so messed up and totally unfair, we are getting totally screwed. Now with Biden back to letting China rip our heads off. Wake up, read the details on what we spend with other countries and what they spend with us. Start with China…

        Of course not. As much as you would like to think, NIT is no different than any other media garbage. If they can prove Biden was the honest winner, so be it. All the naysayers will be saying “I told you so” when sleepy Joe ends up being worse for the country then Obummer could have ever wished to be. He is just a senile tool, a puppet led around by rich globalists and power hungry communists. It’s scary how much of the country is willing to vote for someone, when they have no clue who is actually controlling them.

          You can’t “fake” an election. Quit listening to the Qanon conspiracy nuts and the right wing wacko ‘news’ sites. There may have been a few irregularities but it was not rigged. Get over it. Let the states investigate the problems within their states. The Georgia administration is almost all Republican. They are saying that they saw nothing irregular in the voting in their state. Same with the other states.

    Oh and don’t forget people in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and the rest of the country, your guns will also be at risk. I just cannot believe good hard working midwestern people would vote for Biden and Harris. They will do nothing to protect fair trade between our country and mainly China to protect our jobs that build this country. 5 times the population in China yet we spend 5 bucks with them they spend 1 with us. Oh well too late now.

        100 days removed is on the right path close to correct. My guess less than a year then Biden is out. Or his own party will kick him out based on his dealings via his son. His own party will turn on him as they only used him to get all the radicals in power. And I hope everyone realizes that next in line is Harris President and Pelosi as V.P. Then the far left can run their Green Deal, destroy religion, give away trillions for Reparations, tax the heck out of small and large business so they leave the country, destroy our military and don’t forget open our borders to millions of illegals so that all those 15-25 dollar an hour jobs throughout the midwest will be filled but at a much much lower rate. And don’t forget about energy independence, it will be gone. The only hope is the GOP still maintains the senate as the gatekeeper or all is lost for this country. Oh and lets do what Oregon has done for drugs, traffic ticket like fines for all drugs hard and soft, if you don’t believe it google and read it… SOCIALISM JUST LIKE BERNIE AND THE 4 want. China will now eat us for breakfast.

    Let’s get this country fast tracked to poverty. We need to erase history, burn books and turn in all firearms. The carrot of free stuff was dangled, now we need to accept the government as our saviors. We need to accept the fact that freedom is an illusion. We need to accept that a government ruled by the people is false and our democracy is fake. Thank you America, for rhetoricaly participating in a pre determined fraudulent election. The powers that be will always win!

      Gov. Kim just handed out taxpayer $ to theater owners. Does that qualify as “free stuff” … “government saviors” as you call it … ? Just like a slummy Mason City bar got free $. Government works for the well-connected, the rich, mainly. It’s not “socialism” if they get it. Anyone else sticks their arm in the cookie jar, the right screams that dirty word.
