A report that should be encouraged to supporters of President Donald Trump was published in the Washington Examiner on Friday, titled, Insiders: Trump ‘very confident’ of winning, ‘been in way tougher spots’‘ by Paul Bedard, which not surprisingly doesn’t match with the stories coming out of the Democrats and their media allies.
“Our weekly White House Report Card finds President Trump brushing aside urgings to accept defeat to Joe Biden, instead insisting with confidence that his legal efforts will show that he won the 2020 presidential election.
Several insiders said that while the fight may look difficult, the president has no plans to give up.
“The president is extremely confident and not very bothered,” said one source. “He said that he has been in way tougher spots than this and he’ll come through again. He’s not worried.”
Another West Wing official conceded that the eventual outcome “doesn’t look good,” but that the team has been assured that there is a path to winning,” Bedard wrote.
Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, in a series of House floor speeches, has spelled out an alternative victory path. He has called on Republicans to reject the Electoral Vote counts from states where there are questions about ballot fraud. That would lead to no candidate getting the necessary count, throwing the vote to the House where rules favor the GOP. But the process fight would likely end up before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Our graders, however, weren’t so confident. Democratic pollster John Zogby essentially threw up his hands, and graded an “F.” Conservative analyst Jed Babbin wasn’t far away, grading a D-.
It was an awful week for President Trump with his failing lawsuits against the election results, the completion of the Georgia recount, his firing of another dissenting voice in his administration and the new troop reductions in Afghanistan and Iraq which are a good idea but were handled in precisely the wrong way.
One of Trump’s lawyers insisted at a news conference that he’d won the election by a landslide and that they were going to prove it. That sounded a lot like Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff insisting he had proof of Trump’s collusion with Russia. But the Georgia recount reconfirmed Biden’s narrow win in that state, the Trump campaign withdrew its lawsuit in Michigan and it looks impossible, on the basis of the Pennsylvania lawsuit, that anything close to the number of votes needed to overturn the results can be affected. Without both Pennsylvania and Georgia, Trump cannot possibly overturn Biden’s apparent win.
Bedard has a regular column where he hints at the secrets of Washington insiders”
Supporters of Trump posted online about their own findings:”That is why the Republicans are backing Trump not giving up. They almost succeeded when you think it took 80 million votes out of 152 million to get 200 and some thousand to win by. Now they have to corrupt the Georgia Senate runoff in plan site to keep control of the country.”
Trump posted a link on Friday, to a video discussing voter Integrity and encouraging other Republicans to join the Trump team and Trump supporters hope for revealing voter fraud.
Trump continues to be the fighter he has always been. His supporters are not giving up on him. We will continue to cover developments as they arise.
