Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said he’ll accept the outcome of the presidential race when all court cases have been settled, as the Trump campaign and state Republican Party filed lawsuits in Maricopa County in a bid to block officials from certifying the results over allegations of voter irregularities and improprieties.

“There are legal claims that are being challenged in court, and everybody on the ballot has certain access rights and remedies, and if they want to push that, they are able. Once those are adjudicated and the process plays out, I will accept the results of the election,” the Republican governor said at a news conference on Nov. 18.

It was his first public press briefing since the Nov. 3 election.

“We can trust our elections here in Arizona,” Ducey said, but “there are questions, and those questions should be answered.”

Ducey has declined to call a winner for the election. The governor noted that he’s heard about voting issues in the state but hasn’t personally seen any evidence.

State law gives all Arizona counties until Nov. 23 to certify the results of the election. Then the counties are to send in their results to the secretary of state’s office, which then has another 10 days to certify the statewide results.

According to the unofficial vote count, Biden is ahead of Trump by about 11,000 votes in Arizona.

Earlier this week, the Arizona GOP moved to halt county officials in the state to delay certifying their results.

“The party is pushing for not only the county supervisors but everyone responsible for certifying and canvassing the election to make sure that all questions are answered so that voters will have confidence in the results of the election,” said Zach Henry, a spokesman for the Arizona Republican Party, The Associated Press reported.

The party also filed a lawsuit to request a hand count of a sampling of ballots in Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix. They also are seeking a court order prohibiting the county from certifying results until that case is decided.

“This case is about delay—not the adjudication of good faith claims,” lawyers for Democratic Secretary of State Katie Hobbs said in response, AP reported.

Hobbs, a Democrat, also claimed on Nov. 17 that she is receiving threats of violence following the election, alleging that Trump and other GOP members are spreading misinformation. Hobbs didn’t provide evidence for her claims of violence.

“Their words and actions have consequences,” Hobbs said. “Now I am calling on other leaders in this state, including the governor whose deafening silence has contributed to the growing unrest, to stand up for the truth.”

Ducey said in his news conference that the alleged threats are “completely unacceptable.”

In Michigan, Wayne County Board of Canvassers Chairwoman Monica Palmer and board member William Hartmann signed sworn affidavits on Nov. 18 saying they only voted to certify election results this week because they were told that a full audit of the election would occur. But when they learned of no audit, they rescinded their votes to certify the results.

Both Palmer and Hartmann said they were threatened. The two were berated and accused of racism after they voted against certifying the results, said Palmer, adding that the abuse went so far as to have “threatened me and members of my family.”

I'd like someone to ask Joe Biden if he is going to donate ALL his salary to charity for the entire four years as has President Trump and by that I do not mean to Biden's crooked son or the Clinton Foundation.

For years, decades, voter fraud has gone on. Not until this year have we had a president who fights back. Usually, the Republican just caves and gives into the cheating Dimms. I am so proud of President Trump, Rudy, and Sydney, for fighting back to save our Constitutional Republic!

If he can "trust the election" in his state, then how can there be "unanswered questions" about it? That statement is contradictory and you said it to cover yourself. Just admit you failed, like most other states to insure the integrity of your elections.

There are too many alleged cases of voter fraud and vote manipulation to let it go uninvestigated. Let the system play out. There is ample time to have the necessary court hearings before the electoral college meets to certify the 2020 votes on December 14th. Our constitution gives the right to both parties to seek redress if not satisfied with the results. Now it's up to Trump's lawyers to present the evidence they are still gathering to the various courts up to and including the Supreme Court..

For the last 4 years, the Democratic Party members have demonstrated that there is nothing that they will not say or do to accomplish their agenda regardless of ethics and facts, hypocritically dismissing the principles they promote while acting to destroy those disagree with their ideologies. Is it any wonder that those disagreeing with their agenda suspect them of collusion? The voracity of objections to President Trump's actions to ensure the integrity of the election is also a cause for suspicion. If Democratic Party members are certain that the election was properly conducted, why would they have any objection to seeking confirmation?

I don't believe for a second that Katie Hobbs has received any credible death threats at all. I'm betting that she or her members of her own party are doing that so it looks as if it's Republicans doing it. The Democrats lie, cheat, and steal every chance they get. They want us all to simply roll over and accept that they won and not fight their scams. They would not accept Trump as the POTUS because their attempts to steal the 2016 election didn't go as planned, so they harrassed the shit out of him and anyone who supported him. Now that they think that they pulled off the perfect heist of the 2020 election they want everything to go their way. Funny how that works isn't it?

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
