Infographic ℹ️ What Happened in #Atlanta on #ElectionNight?

In recent days, the fog of incomplete and conflicting information provided by interested parties has begun to clear. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/what-happened-…
It now appears that a state election monitor was absent for a part of the counting process.

It is also clear that GOP #PollWatchers were prevented from meaningfully observing much of the process, even though they were allowed in the room.
1. RULE CHANGE
On Aug. 10, the State Election Board approved a new rule allowing election officials to start opening and scanning #AbsenteeBallots 3 weeks before #ElectionDay.

The state is currently being sued over the rule.

MAJEUR. La cour d'appel du 3e circuit à l'unanimité des 3 juges (2 nommés par Bush Jr, 1 par #Trump qui doivent eux aussi appartenir à 1 complot gauchiste😉...)rejette l'appel de la campagne du président sortant en #Pennsylvanie. Car il n'a aucun fondement.
2) Le pire pour #Trump est que l'opinion unanime de la cour d'appel fédérale du 3e circuit contre sa campagne a été rédigée par le juge #Bibas qu'il a nommé lui-même. Humiliation supplémentaire...
3) Et quand on parle d'humiliation juridique, le juge Bibas, nommé juge fédéral de cour d'appel par Trump, donateur du parti républicain et membre de la Federalist Society depuis la fac, écrit noir sur blanc: "Les requêtes de la campagne #Trump 'n'ont aucun fondement."

How #American #Elections Work: A Thread👇

The #TrumpCampaign and its allies have filed #lawsuits to try to block some key states from certifying #Election2020results results that show #Democrat @JoeBiden defeating President @realDonaldTrump.
After #ElectionNight , certifying the #results is a step #states take so that winners can be officially #confirmed. The @AP and other #media outlets on Saturday declared @JoeBiden the #WINNER of the #PresidentialElection2020
after analyses concluded that @RealdonqldTrump couldn’t gain enough votes from remaining ballots to surpass @JoeBiden.

I got a little sidetracked yesterday with breaking news, phone interviews and Zoom meetings and apparently, according to some people, wasn't tweeting enough about Republicans not accepting the election results.

I interviewed GOP consultant @stusandler...

Thread continued...
Interview Sandler and @AdrianHemond for a Great Lakes Bay Economic Club about the election.

Sandler refused to concede @JohnJamesMI, one of his clients, lost.

"There are states where (Trump) is down by 2/10ths of a percentage point," Sandler said.
"Donald Trump was on his way to winning in a landslide before COVID hit," @stusandler said.

OK, but he didn't. Perhaps cause of his handling of COVID?

Stu acknowledged Trump may have been hurt in early absentee voting for not taking it seriously enough.

NEW: Around 50 people marched through Uptown #Minneapolis during a mobile dance party on #ElectionNight

The crowd played music, shot fireworks, spray-painted political statements onto boarded-up business fronts & erected barricades in the streets. [video]
unicornriot.ninja/2020/election-…
After the first loop through Uptown, dozens of Minneapolis Police cars followed the mobile dance party, eventually surrounding it & arresting 14 people.

Video (5min 23sec) encapsulates the party and the crackdown. vimeo.com/476770817
The dancing cmty members, who chose not to organize the party on social media, said they were there irrespective of who won the election & were spotlighting they’d learned they could “only rely on each other.”

They were celebrating the community & power they had been building.

1. Habitude US de se fier à la projection des Etats par AP et les networks et non aux résultats définitifs prenant du temps. Or, avec 1 élection si serrée, ils n'osent pas.
2. C'est la concession de défaite qui d'habitude "vaut" résultat. Or, #Trump l'a bannie par avance
Blocage
2) Cette élection renvoie à 1 réalité historique des scrutins présidentiels modernes aux #EtatsUnis. Pour les impératifs TV d'#ElectionNight, on se fie aux projections d'AP/ des networks parce que le dépouillement comté par comté dans 1 pays si vaste et divers prend des jours...
3)...et quand AP et les networks projettent un candidat à plus de 270 grands électeurs durant #ElectionNight, l'autre prend son téléphone, concède, le félicite puis va reconnaître sa défaite devant ses partisans, alors qu'en fait les dépouillements continuent encore des jours...

So I guess the question is if they are able to keep scanning batches of 300 votes whenever they want, or if they have to wait 20 minutes each time.

#ElectionNight

Some Clayton County math:

If we have to wait 20 minutes per scan and Biden wins each 300 vote scan ~90% - 10%, he would net ~240 votes per scan, and we'd need 6 scans for him to cut Trump's 1267 vote lead down to zero.

That would be about two hours.

Say we're hoping to save 20 minutes. What would it take for Biden to overtake Trump in the span of five 300-vote scans?

1267/5 = 253.4
300/2 + 253.4/2 = 276.7
276.7/300 = 92.23%

So Biden would need to win ~92.22 to 7.33% to overtake Trump in five scans.

In the first batch of mail votes from Clayton County GA, Biden appears to be getting the type of margin he needs to close the statewide gap once future batches report.

#Election2020 #ElectionNight

Apparently the remaining Clayton County GA mail ballots are expected to arrive "by midnight tonight", per @CNN.

#Election2020 #ElectionNight
If the remaining ~5726 Clayton County GA votes come in at the margin the first batch of votes came in (Biden +74%), Biden would net 4237 votes.

And that would put him in the lead statewide (Trump currently leads by 2497 votes).

NEW: Protests took place across the #UnitedStates on Nov 4 specifically demanding that the country uphold democratic #elections and also generally demanding that the fight for social progress not waver, whatever the result.

unicornriot.ninja/2020/protester…
“Voting Isn’t Enough” and “Jews Against Fascism” were 2 signs carried by protesters in #Boston.

Demands from protesters there included increased consultation with #Indigenous tribes, getting #police out of schools, and the need for #COVID hazard pay.

In addition to defending the vote in the #UnitedStates, the People’s Mandate protest in #Minneapolis demanded community control of the #police, a halt to racist attacks on immigrants, housing & economic relief for all in need, and #HealthCare for all.

.#Electionnight showed why Trump voters don't trust the media nypost.com/2020/11/04/ele… via @nypost
“Today we are all cynics or damn well should be. Show me an American who trusts politicians, polls, news organizations and social media bigs who fancy themselves our new masters and I’ll show you a fool.
The wall-to-wall promises of a blue wave were delivered with all the certainty of prophecy. Joe Biden and Democrats would sweep the White House and all of congress from sea to shining sea. Even a large voter survey that Fox News did with the Associated Press suggested as much.

The problem is not only called Trump! The problem is called Trump and Biden. The problem is a split oligarchy together against society. #2020Election #Election2020 #Election2020 #ElectionNight #VOTE ImageImage
What changes with Biden? What justifies this broad support for Biden in Germany instead of the clear rejection of both Trump and Biden and thus the whole criminal oligarchy in the USA & their worldwide imperialist class struggle from above. ImageImageImageImage
How can alleged leftists and progressives so massively and often uncritically support Biden, Obama &Killary and thus imperialist oligarchy puppets who are themselves responsible for countless crimes such as war crimes, corruption & exploitation worldwide? ImageImageImageImage

Das Problem heißt Trump und Biden. Das Problem ist eine gespalten Oligarchie zusammen gegen die Gesellschaft. #2020Election #Election2020 #Elections2020 #ElectionNight #VOTE
Was verändert sich mit Biden?
Was rechtfertigt diese breite Unterstützung für Biden in Deutschland anstelle der klaren Ablehnung von sowohl Trump als auch Biden und damit der ganzen verbrecherischen Oligarchie in den USA & ihren weltweiten imperialistischen Klassenkampf von oben.
Wie können angebliche Linke und Progressive so massenhaft und vielfach kritiklos Biden, Obama &Killary und damit imperialistische Oligarchie-Marionetten unterstützen, die selbst weltweit für unzählige Verbrechen wie Kriegsverbrechen, Korruption & Ausbeutung verantwortlich sind?

#ElectionNight Vielleicht wird diese #Wahl unter falschen Prämissen betrachtet.

Vielleicht geht es nicht primär um die #Frage des Kandidaten, vielleicht ist das eigentliche Problem, daß #Menschen aufgehört haben miteinander zu reden, nur weil der Andere anders denkt!

#Spaltung
Es heißt immer #Trump wuerde spalten.

Ja, sein #Habitus ist ein exkludierender bezogen auf bestimmte #Menschengruppen.

Aber, das ist in inhaltlicher Ausrichtung nichts neues!

Diese Entwicklung hat mit dem neoliberalen Umbau von den #Strukturen in den #USA begonnen.
Es ist nicht so, daß ein Politiker der #Bevölkerung verbieten kann, miteinander zu reden!

Solange es so ist, daß ganze Familien eine #Trennung durchführen, nur weil man politisch verschieden denkt, ist eine #Spaltung realisiert, welche kein Politiker ungeschehen machen kann!
