Joe Biden Is Certified As The 46th President Of The United States by AnonPoet: 9:54am On Jan 07
After a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, forcing lawmakers to evacuate and disrupting the proceedings, Congress rejected Republican challenges to Mr. Biden’s Electoral College victory.

Congress confirmed President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory early Thursday morning, hours after a mob of loyalists urged on by President Trump stormed and occupied the Capitol, disrupting the final electoral count in a shocking display of violence that shook the core of American democracy.

There was no parallel in modern American history, with insurgents acting in the president’s name vandalizing Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office, smashing windows, looting art and briefly taking control of the Senate chamber, where they took turns posing for photographs with fists up on the dais where Vice President Mike Pence had just been presiding.

By the time the Senate reconvened late on Wednesday evening, hours after lawmakers had been evacuated from a Capitol overrun by rebels carrying pro-Trump paraphernalia, one of the nation’s most polarizing moments had yielded an unexpected window of solidarity. Republicans and Democrats locked arms to denounce the violence and express their determination to carry out what they called a constitutionally sacrosanct function.

“To those who wreaked havoc in our Capitol today, you did not win,” Mr. Pence said in a sharp break from Mr. Trump, who had praised the mob. “Violence never wins. Freedom wins. And this is still the people’s house.”

Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, said the “failed insurrection” had only clarified Congress’s purpose.

“They tried to disrupt our democracy,” he said. “They failed.”

The upheaval unfolded on a day when Democrats secured a stunning pair of victories in runoff elections in Georgia, winning effective control of the Senate and the complete levers of power in Washington. And it arrived as Congress met for what would normally have been a perfunctory and ceremonial session to declare Mr. Biden’s election.

The siege was the climax of a weekslong campaign by Mr. Trump, filled with baseless claims of fraud and outright lies, to try to overturn a democratically decided election that he lost.

“We gather due to a selfish man’s injured pride, and the outrage of supporters who he has deliberately misinformed for the past two months and stirred to action this very morning,” Senator Mitt Romney, Republican of Utah and the 2012 presidential nominee, said after the chamber reconvened. “What happened here today was an insurrection incited by the president of the United States.”

Wednesday evening, Mr. Biden, seeking to tamp down the anarchy that Mr. Trump stoked with angry language just hours earlier, Mr. Biden urged rioters to abandon what amounted to an armed occupation of the House and Senate. The president-elect denounced Mr. Trump’s refusal to graciously accept defeat, and suggested that the president was to blame for the violence.

“At their best, the words of a president can inspire,” Mr. Biden said. “At their worst, they can incite.”

Far from discouraging confrontation, Mr. Trump had encouraged his supporters earlier Wednesday to confront Republican lawmakers going against him to side with the Constitution.

ELECTORAL COLLEGE.

VP Pence altered the track record of introducing 'rival' slates of electors, working with a parliamentarian to use tortured language, so only the slates of Electors with state "authority" would be introduced.

TRUMP.

President Trump issues a statement for the peaceful transition of power to the Biden administration.

"Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th.” 1/2

VP Pence cannot do the job of state legislatures that should have objected to unlawful election changes months ago or the Supreme Court that was entrusted to review flagrant violations of the U.S. Consttitution.

The Republican Party failed America. That did not begin today.

Trump should give up, congratulate the winner and move on.

You can't win all life's battles, you win some and lose some...that is just the way it is.

Trump should quit being desperate and power hungry like an average African politician.

Count the “Antifa” warnings shouted from the crowd as a window is broken at the Capitol building.

Trump supporters are the obvious majority at the non-peaceful protest, but those same supporters were warning about alleged ‘Antifa’ penetration before violence broke out.

Fkk and some idiots are still dreaming and especially that fake pastor here that should have prevented his integrity by keep sharing the word of God and not be too keen into America politics and went from grace to grass by his nonsense and convincing fake prophesies and took it personal for everyone that opposes his talk. I don't take such Christian serious in the long run. If you have bias mind, its better to keep quiet and pray secretly for things to change to your favour than to come and be sentimental and making what you believe and callings a joke in the presence of unbelivers.

One novice was saying the way trump pull for anarchy will make him a hero and likely a god father for the republican. He thought this is Africa, lol.
Mark my word, and i have said it as the drama unfolds since before now, emperor trump will end in jail. I repeat, trump will end up in jail.

This is America, he will soon face many legal battles when he is pushed out. He cant escape it. He started well but he ended up foolishly.
He is not different from the same Africa leaders he has been criticising, even worse than them.

You cant change established institutions to your favour, no system is perfect or devoid of irregularities, but he went too far with his own for misguided talks. Now some people have died as a result of his call yesterday, he will end up in jail. Its a matter of time. Just watch as it is unfold.

Robert Greene in his book "the laws if human nature" wrote on grandiosity.
Its a complex, that pulls down leaders, their country and followers with them.

When people keep on winning and feel that its their destiny to always win and then begin to make rash actions which clearly will bring them, as they feel that they have a destiny that no human calculation can bring down.

Trump operating on this grandiose nature, operated only on instinct, he threw out all scientific advice on quelling the spread of the virus and thoughtlessly proposed that Americans drink disinfectant to quell the virus.

He felt, Biden was too dumb to win him, he didn't know that it was bot about Biden, it was himself that he was running against as he alone had the power to mar or make things work for him.

With 250,000 dead, he still went on to advice his voters to not vote by mail, something that really came out to bite him and to bite him bad, and his legal team was headed by s lawyer that was out of practice for almost 30years, leading him on a streak of loses in courts, amounting to almost 100 loses.

He had the cult followers, people who contributed millions for him to run his case in court, people who would have turned up for him in 2024 to correct the mistakes of having told people to not use the mail in vote, he could have gone back to draw up plans to make it happen, he could have campaigned to ensure that Democrats lost in Georgia, thus loosing control of senate and having a chaotic 4term rule. But then, he worked for the democrats by telling republicans that the election is fraud thereby making them stay back.

And yesterday, all the incitement he had been fanning-up had fruition, and his hard liners took over congress, desecrating the American Democracy in full view of the whole world, and countries like Venezuela now had to tell Americans to allow the will of the people to stand.

Trump has been able to finally unite the whole American people into seeing what that could be at state in supporting an extremist and everyone will now try to work together to forestall this reoccurrence.

In the end, when the worst days in American Democracy is reviewed, it will be the President who incited a Coup on the Constitution and the will of the people that will take centre stage.
