WASHINGTON, D.C., November 10, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, yesterday called out Democrats for their hypocrisy in demanding President Donald Trump trust the election results while over the past four years they had worked to undermine the 2016 election.
“Let’s not have any lectures about how the President should immediately, cheerfully, accept preliminary election results, from the same characters who just spent four years refusing to accept the validity of the last election,” said McConnell.
He continued by noting that Democrats had “insinuated that this one (election) would be illegitimate too, if they lost again: only if they lost. So let’s have no lectures on this subject from that contention.”
Sen. McConnell then referenced statements made earlier in the year by Hillary Clinton and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-California. The former presidential candidate and the Speaker of the House had outlined a plan of attack for Biden and made personal attacks on President Trump.
According to McConnell, “In late August, Secretary Hillary Clinton said, ‘Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances. I think this is going to drag out, and he will win it if we don’t give an inch.’”
“That same month, Speaker Pelosi and the Democratic Leader both stated, ‘President Trump needs to cheat to win.’ In October, when Speaker Pelosi was shopping some conspiracy theory about the Postal Service, she recklessly said, ‘I have no doubt that the president … will lie, cheat, and steal, to win this election,’” he added.
“Now does this sound like a chorus that has any credibility to say a few legal challenges from President Trump represent some kind of crisis?” questioned McConnell.
He made further reference to the peaceful response of Republican supporters, who had not turned to violence in frustration at the media projecting Biden to be the winner of the election. “At this time last week, small-business owners in cities across America were boarding up their windows in case President Trump appeared to win and far-left mobs decided to reprise their summertime rioting. Suffice to say a few legal inquiries from the president do not exactly spell the end of the Republic.”
McConnell also drew upon the words of two law professors, from Fordham and New York law schools, who had mentioned that Trump’s response to the election “is ‘a traditional response that affirms rather than undermines American institutions.’”
PETITION UPDATE (1/15/2021) -
The events of the past month, and especially the past 10 days, have shaken the faith Americans have in their elected and appoint officials.
We continue to call for investigations to be made into allegations of election fraud. Texas is in the process of prosecuting one political operative for illegal ballot harvesting, and multiple state legislatures have called for investigations, too.
However, the judiciary has severely let down the American electorate.
As we have said all along, the integrity of the election is much bigger than President Trump. Election integrity is at the heart of republican democracy, and if we don't have it, we no longer have a functioning republic.
Therefore, we continue to seek the truth for the election outcome. Perhaps that will only be known in the future when state or federal commissions are established to investigate the instances of election fraud which were witnessed and sworn to, by thousands of Americans of all political persuasions.
In the meantime, you may still sign this petition. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (12/10/20) -
On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted: "We will be INTERVENING in the Texas (plus many other states) case. This is the big one. Our Country needs a victory!"
He is referring to the lawsuit which the state of Texas has filed against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia in the Supreme Court over changes those states made to their election rules, claiming they violated the U.S. Constitution in the process.
Here is the central part of the argument: if Texas were to allow possible voter fraud to go unchecked in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, it would be akin to committing fraud upon the people of Texas, who cast their ballots within the framework of the law.
Indeed, this would apply equally to all citizens who voted within the framework of the law across the United States!
President Trump also tweeted that this case is, "very strong...ALL CRITERIA MET."
Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, now.
PETITION UPDATE (12/7/20) - Since this petition was launched, President Trump's legal team, as well as other concerned citizens, have discovered what appears to be irrefutable evidence of voter fraud in several of the key battleground states, and have initiated legal challenges in six states.
While the situation continues to evolve, this remains a hugely important petition which we encourage you to SIGN and SHARE.
Below, please WATCH and READ about the mounting evidence of voter fraud and how the mainstream media seem determined to ignore even the most egregious instances of vote tampering. Then, please SIGN and SHARE this petition.
LifeSite supports President Trump with this petition because we believe he is trying to defend the Constitution, ensuring that electoral fraud does not taint the result of the 2020 general election.
But, since starting this petition, we have launched a separate petition related to the disputed election outcome, calling on the Department of Justice to 'do their job' and engage in meaningful investigations of the mounting evidence of voter fraud.
We believe that conducting forensic audits of ballots and voting machines, as well as issuing subpoenas to collect more evidence, would be a good start.
Thankfully, some of the state started to demand investigations independent of federal agencies. But we still believe that the DoJ needs to use its enormous fact-finding resources to help resolve allegations of election fraud.
Thank you for continuing to SIGN and SHARE all our election-related petitions.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which calls on all Americans to Stand With President Trump as he uses every legitimate means to find out if voter fraud played any role in the election outcome.
Amid allegations of voter fraud, and at a time when the situation with COVID has been used by many of the states to facilitate the use of mail-in ballots on a massive scale, we need to be very careful in dismissing the possibility of voter fraud.
The fact is, the possibility of wide-spread fraud with mail-in ballots is significant.
But, this is not about Donald Trump or Joe Biden! This about whether or not the sanctity of the ballot box has been tampered with!
Please Stand With President Trump as he attempts to defend the integrity of this election, as well as well as the right to vote itself!
Indeed, this is so important, not so much because one election hangs in the balance, but because our democracy, itself, hangs in the balance.
Americans not only have a right to know, but should demand that every legitimate means be used to discover the truth about these elections!
Please SIGN this petition and Stand With President Trump to ensure that these elections were conducted freely and fairly!
While most all Americans believe in playing by the rules, we also know that some very devious, politically-motivated operatives have been trying to harm the Trump administration from before he even took the oath of office.
This fact should lead us to question how some allegations of voter fraud can be so easily dismissed by state election authorities.
We demand to know the truth, and, for the sake of our democracy, we demand that President Trump keep fighting to learn the truth.
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition today!

Despite the media calling the presidential race for Biden, the official result has not yet been released by the individual states, and President Trump is currently taking legal action regarding widespread voter fraud concerns.
Shortly after the media called the election for Biden, Trump issued a statement in which he wrote, “The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor.”
President Trump recently gave an update on the findings regarding fake ballots, saying, “The threshold identification of Ballots is turning out to be even bigger than originally anticipated. A very large number of Ballots are impacted. Stay tuned!”
Meanwhile, the Trump campaign is issuing challenges based on evidence of potential fraud in several states, including Michigan, Nevada, and Pennsylvania. The U.S. Supreme Court has ordered Pennsylvania to segregate all mail-in ballots delivered past the legal deadline, which will presumably help identify votes ineligible to be counted.
U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr has issued a memo authorizing investigations into “substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities.”
The president tweeted today about the action the Trump campaign is taking to uncover voter fraud: “WE ARE MAKING BIG PROGRESS. RESULTS START TO COME IN NEXT WEEK. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
