The entire mainstream media is now referring to “President-Elect” Joe Biden. This is a lie. Not just because Joe Biden only has 259 electoral college votes as of this moment. And not just because the votes are still being counted or recounted in several states, which could still put President Trump over the 270-vote margin of victory. But because “President-Elect” is a specific legal term you can find in the US Constitution. Joe Biden is not the “President-Elect” under any definition of the term.
The Biden campaign even printed up a big sign that says “Office of the President Elect” that he put up behind him for a speech the other day. This was a signal to all of the media: You’d better start calling Joe the “President-Elect” if you know what’s good for you. Fox News, CNN and MSNBC all dutifully complied, without bothering to open up a dictionary to see if “President-Elect” actually means something.
They also didn’t bother to look up the tape and see that Barack Obama pulled that same stunt with his own “Office of the President-Elect” back in 2008, before he was officially the President-Elect.
Fact: There IS no “President-Elect” today. Legally, there are only two titles that can be applied to Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
Trump’s official legal title is President Donald Trump and Biden’s official legal title is “some person who ran against Trump in the 2020 election.” You have just as much right to call yourself “President-Elect” today as Joe Biden does.
On Tuesday, November 3, 2020, we all voted to seat electors on the Electoral College. If Donald Trump OR Joe Biden had won a 50-state landslide of electors on November 3, neither one of them could legitimately call themselves “President-Elect.” Their official titles would still be President Trump and “some person who ran against Trump in the 2020 election.”
The Electoral College will gather on December 14, 2020. When those folks vote, and one candidate receives 270 electoral votes, that person will then officially, legally and constitutionally bear the title of “President-Elect” until they’re sworn in on January 20. At which point that person’s title will revert back to “President Donald Trump.”
If all the TV news anchors weren’t so busy googling which salad fork to use if their dream of getting invited to dinner at the White House with Kamala Harris comes true, they might have noticed that Joe Biden only has 259 electors.
RealClearPolitics is one of the few outlets that has been paying attention. They pulled their “call” for Joe Biden’s fake election “victory” in Pennsylvania after the Trump campaign filed a lawsuit against the state. Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes can’t be certified if the campaign prevails there. 682,479 mail-in ballots were counted by Pennsylvania without any oversight from Republican observers. Late mail-in ballots were counted without being segregated from lawful votes, in direct violation of a court order by the US Supreme Court.
Donald Trump has 232 electoral votes and Joe Biden has 259. Neither one of them has won the election. Trump now trails Joe Biden by about 12,000 votes in Arizona, with about 67,000 votes left to count. If Arizona flips to Trump, he’ll have 244 votes to Joe Biden’s 248.
Georgia is going through a full recount AND audit of the votes there. Georgia and Pennsylvania combined account for 35 electoral votes – and victory in the 2020 election for whichever candidate prevails in those two states. And that’s even if Trump’s lawsuits in Michigan and Wisconsin should fail for some odd reason.
Speaking of Michigan and Wisconsin, the Trump campaign is still aggressively tracking down and gathering affidavits from election observers, postal workers and now software technicians who worked on the sketchy voting machines in those states. All of these affidavits are alleging widespread fraud to benefit Joe Biden in those states.
Once again, the race today stands at 259 electoral votes for Biden and 232 for Trump. No one has won the election yet. The tide continues to turn back in President Trump’s favor. The fake “President-Elect” and the fake news media are breaking out in a flop sweat.
Another important thing to remember: Any media figure who calls Joe Biden the “President-Elect” before December 14, 2020 is a LIAR. That title does not and cannot exist constitutionally before that date.
