Associated Press: Other than Wisconsin, every state appears to have met a deadline in federal law that essentially means Congress has to accept the electoral votes that will be cast next week and sent to the Capitol for counting on Jan. 6. Those votes will elect Joe Biden as the country’s next president.

It’s called a safe harbor provision because it’s a kind of insurance policy by which a state can lock in its electoral votes by finishing up certification of the results and any state court legal challenges by a congressionally imposed deadline, which this year is Tuesday.

“What federal law requires is that if a state has completed its post-election certification by Dec. 8, Congress is required to accept those results,” said Rebecca Green, an election law professor at the William & Mary law school in Williamsburg, Virginia.

The Electoral College is a creation of the Constitution, but Congress sets the date for federal elections and, in the case of the presidency, determines when presidential electors gather in state capitals to vote.

In 2020, that date is Dec. 14. But Congress also set another deadline, six days before electors meet, to insulate state results from being challenged in Congress.

By the end of the day, every state is expected to have made its election results official, awarding 306 electoral votes to Biden and 232 to President Donald Trump.

The attention paid to the normally obscure safe harbor provision is a function of Trump’s unrelenting efforts to challenge the legitimacy of the election. He has refused to concede, made unsupported claims of fraud and called on Republican lawmakers in key states to appoint electors who would vote for him even after those states have certified a Biden win.  read more..

  1. I trust the system. I can live under the Presidency of either man, but while I don’t share much of the politics of Biden or Trump, Biden in comparison at least apparently has some human empathy, for all his faults.

  2. This is a defeat for everything evil in this world. Likud, Republicans, Evangelical Church, Zionists, Trump cult members, Wahhabis, Israeli firsters, and most of all the ego of the Trump crime family.
    First it was their defeat in Syria and now the focus is on the real swamp, the Trumps and their entourage.

    • The truth is, it doesn’t matter who is President, left wingnut illusionists, or right wingnut illusionists, these are the two wings attatched to the same Illuminati buzzard. The pollutical system in US is an illusion, created for we the people to divide us, and keep us divided.
      The old “United We Stand, Divided We Fall” tactic’s. “There is no doubt We the people” are divided beyond comprehension, positively irrational, emotionally driven outrage toward those not sharing their views. The President of USA is Jacob Rothschild.

    • Hey Padre I doubt if anyone can top Trump in anything even in losing.
      Biden has already pledged to restore US aid to the Palestinians.
      He would reopen the US consulate in East Jerusalem for the Palestinian leadership, as well as the PLO’s mission in Washington.

      Just these two will pissoff Likud which is a great thing. We’re not even getting into how he’s going to finger that terrorist trash bin Salman.

      Most of you guys don’t speak Farsi or French or other languages to read and know what kind of politics is on the horizon with the little tweaks to the formulas available to Biden administration. One thing is for certain and that’s that he is not lodged as deep in Israel’s behind as Trump. But I’ve told you that already.

  3. This is why Trump is now the most dangerous man on the planet. Pompeo and Netanyahu just in the last few weeks have had covert talks with Mohammed bin Salman. Trump has recently cleaned house at the Pentagon and packed it with yes-men. He shows no sign that he will leave office any time soon, much to the dismay of Republicans who are not part of his personality cult. The Trumpsters, of course, will follow him right over the cliff into nuclear war with Iran and Russia, which will be the end of the USA as we know it. That seems to be exactly what his Christian Zionist base wants to happen.

    • Up yours, Bernie! There is no “impasse”, and the only insurrection is coming from that POS traitor Trump! Martial law, my ass! The vast majority of ballots cast by military in the election were for Biden. Trump’s presidency is as dead as you were in “Weekend at Bernie’s”!

    • Also, those in the US military take an oath to defend the Constitution, not the wild claims of a madman like Trump. They’ll shut down an “insurrection” in a New York minute and haul Trump off to Rikers Island where he belongs.

    • Hey Bernie about the only thing that is true in your angry rant is the part of the last sentence that said “Trump is not a man … ”
      I hope you have helped the shyster with all the money you got in the bank.
