Nothing in Donald Trump’s presidency became him like the leaving it.
All the character flaws that marked his presidency and caused his defeat — the dishonesty, the petulance, the self-obsession — are on display as he vainly clings to office.
He lost the election that he says he won, "by a lot."
There is no credible case that fraud is responsible for this outcome. A lot of the Republicans know it even as they refuse to admit that Joe Biden won.
Yes, U.S. Atty. Gen. William"Bill" Barr released a memo titled "Post-Voting Election Irregularity Inquiries."
At the end of the memo, though, Barr says this: "Nothing here should be taken as any indication that the Department has concluded that voting irregularities have impacted the outcome of any election."
Nowhere in the memo does Barr even say that there are credible claims of irregularities that put any outcome in doubt.
The Republican senators from Georgia know it too, even though they called on the state’s top election official, a fellow Republican, to "step down immediately." That’s why the letter making their case is relentlessly vague. They don’t point to a single specific allegation of fraud or an instance of the official’s supposed failure.
It wasn’t suspiciously large leads or high turnout in Democrat-run cities that put Biden in the lead in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
Turnout was high nearly everywhere, and it was the suburbs where Trump suffered losses compared to four years ago.
It is at this point that even some critics of the president note that of course he is entitled to make his case in court and that there is nothing wrong with letting the process play out.
But filing dubious, long-shot legal claims and hoping a few of them stick is an abuse of the courts even when it is allowed. The Trump campaign is following that tactic, which has already led a Michigan judge to dismiss a legal motion based on "hearsay within hearsay."
Other legal challenges from Republicans have more merit.
They argue that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, in extending the deadline for the receipt of mail-in ballots, overstepped its role. The U.S. Constitution gives state legislatures the power to regulate the appointment of electors.
But even if the U.S. Supreme Court were to agree, it wouldn’t give Trump Pennsylvania’s electoral votes.
Only 10,000 votes arrived late, and Biden is leading in the state by roughly 50,000 votes. Biden is also leading in enough other states to win the presidency without Pennsylvania.
Pursuing every avenue your lawyers can imagine is one thing if you’re a casino owner trying to stave off bankruptcy. It’s another when you’re the U.S. president making baseless claims of a stolen election.
In 2016 and afterward, a lot of Democrats indulged in overheated rhetoric about Trump’s "illegitimate" victory — rhetoric that convinced most Democratic voters that Russia had altered vote tallies in his favor, which isn’t true.
But at least Democratic officials didn’t use that claim to delay the transition to Trump’s taking office. (Nor was it the legal basis for any investigation of the Trump campaign or administration.)
After losing the race for governor of Georgia in 2018, Democrat Stacey Abrams maintained that she was the rightful winner. This was merely ludicrous: It didn’t keep the actual governor-elect from getting briefings on matters of importance to the security of the state.
What Trump is doing is genuinely worse.
Which is not to say that it is at all surprising. Trump is encouraging Republican voters to see him as the victim of a stolen election either because his ego cannot take the acknowledgment of defeat or because he thinks that perception will aid him in future business or political initiatives.
Such conduct is in keeping with the character he has displayed for decades.
Why are Republicans who know better playing along? In the case of the senators from Georgia, it’s because they have special elections in January. They would be in a better position to win if everyone, including Trump, conceded that Biden will be president. Then they could present themselves as crucial to maintaining a check on the Democrats.
But Trump has led some Republican voters to believe he won re-election, and the senators don’t want to anger those voters — or have Trump tweeting about how the senators don’t deserve their support.
Nobody doubts that Trump would sacrifice two Republican Senate seats with the same perfect indifference he shows toward the truth.
And so the Republican senators decided that their best bet was to obscure the truth and sacrifice Georgia’s secretary of state.
One thing you have to hand the president: He certainly keeps exposing corruption

Dr. Zelenko said he saw the symptom of shortness of breath resolved within four to six hours after treatment. Do you know that the ancient Egypt were civilized by architects from the (500,000 - 4000 BC) Nsukka Civiliation? Now, Dr. Zelenko provides updates on the treatment after he successfully treated 699 COVID-19 patients in New York. In an exclusive interview with former New York Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, Dr. Vladmir Zelenko shares the results of his latest study, which showed that out of his 699 patients treated, zero patients died, zero patients intubated, and four ho
THE AKAN Copied from the book, Reality as Myth by Onyeji Nnaji . The influence of the Akan on their content nations lies on their population and commonwealth of their brother nations. The Akan are one of the largest ethnic groups in West Africa. Their population is scattered across West Africa and beyond. Among this huge population of the Akan, the Ghanaians are more popular, perhaps because of the political influence of the Ashanti Empire in the area. Not much is heard or known about other Akan settlements like the Akwamu, the Akyem , the Akuapem, the Denkyira, the Abron, the Aowin, the Ahanta, the Anyi, the Baoule, the Chokosi, the Fante, the Kwahu, the Sefwi, the Ahafo, the Assin, the Evalue, the Wassa the Adjukru, the Akye, the Alladian, the Attie,the M'Bato, the Abidji, the Avikam,the Avatime the Ebrie,
Copied from the Book; " Reality as Myth " by Onyeji Nnaji The beauty of the discovering of the Radar Rivers and their channels is that it disproves the western hegemonic claim of the Euphrates valley being the position of the birth of the great river, all the points that opposed their claims notwithstanding. Even God himself was very perfect in His creation by placing them in their positions, hierarchically, according to their birth. The first river that flowed located the Havilah land where there are good quality gold, bdellium and fine onyx stones. Pison was the oldest of the rivers and it flowed through the land of the southern Africa. The second river flowed northward to Ethiopia. It was when Africa had been overtaken by virtue of her proximity to the Great Water that other parts of the world began to encounter the remaining river; remarkable with Hiddekel.

Copied from the book, Reality as Myths by Onyeji Nnaji T he world of the Bantu travellers shows the walls of the migration that recorded the highest population among the African settlement. Originating from the largest population among the four races that settled in the east before time, all Bantu travellers were pygmies; for that was the nature of the Umudiala, the generation that gave birth to them. Bantu migration was rated the third earliest migration of the Negro race from the east. In this regard, all their movement had involved great population of people compared to the number of people involved in the two earlier populations that gave birth to Ethiopia, Nubia and Egypt: the Walker Traveller, and the Race of Anu. Bantu population as we have identified in the third chapter above outweighs the rest of the population of the ancient fathers that founded many of the nations of antiquity mentioned earlier. Discussing them in beat will pose a little challenge since

This thing has happened for over three times. Each time we brought a new salesgirl, the girl would stay for two or three months; and suddenly she would end her contract with us. In all these, my husband did not know. So, being that the girls usually stole money and other items, the reason for their departure became genuine, thus: they ran away to avoid being punished for their actions. But behind this, the underlying truth is that the girls had been embarrassed by my neighbour who would warn them to leave her loosed husband. Re
T he name Nkalaha is a coinage which stands for a people occupying a geographical land and regional setting in the eastern part of Nigeria. It is a coinage which attempts to explain the direction of movement and adventure of the men who founded the community in the 15th century AD. According to oral sources and some documentation about this community, some of these men were believed to have traveled from Ida, old Benue state of Nigeria to inhabit the land. These men had traveled on different days to locate the place. Onojah who originally founded the land was said to have been in a deep search for a place of safety as he was besieged by a fate that appeared to make him somewhat incompatible with his own people. Nkalaha is one of the communities that make up Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. Nkalaha occupied the northern part of Ishielu Local Government Area. She is located through the zip 135.031.000. The community sits on 923.768km 2 . She shares boundaries
The Mystery of Number, “Five” in the Igbo Cosmology. From: Aspects of the Ancient African Metaphysics; Chapter: Seven; Topic: Igbo Geometries and the Metaphysics of Numbers. Author: Onyeji Nnaji. I n the Igbo cosmology, the word Isee is a definite symbolic word as revealed through the Igbo language and culture. A human being has five fingers, five toes. The hands and feet are fundamentals to the survival in life as they are necessary in ensuring that man moves to places where he gets food and grapples on the food to sustain his life. To this view, the rhetoric that binds vocatives in the form of incantation (anchoring on the heart-lock: four ) and the concomitant reprisal in the manner of affirmation that holds the human life bind to his original spiritual person, therefore defining existence and essences are unified by the corresponding echo: Isee!!!!! Therefore it stands that anytime a prayer is said in the Igbo land, the attendants who would want the fulfillment of the
INTRODUCTION One thing that made Udi remarkable is the indubitable legacy adopted in commemoration of the legendry fighter, Uto at Nsude. It was one of the greatest contributions of the descendants of Agbaja to the survival of Nsukka civilization of memory. Uto held from Oshie. Uto dies of small pox after a mercenary battle he was hired to fight in the ancient Benin. His body was buried in the evil forest as the tradition demanded. Although he lived no longer, the stepped pyramids above were adopted to commemorate the lasting peace he brought to the entire Oshie and Udi nation of people. Another remarkable thing about Udi is the fertility of the land. This has contributed widely in sustaining the inhabitants and provided a name for the inhabitants in the manner of Abakaliki, Umudike, Ogbaru, Igboariam, Ohaji, Uzouwani, etc., especially in Amofia-Agu, Affa. Udi is a land of great rivers and springs: Adaada, Ajali, Oji, Aria, Nvenu, Ngene Evu, Iyi Ububo, etc. as was the situ
There are four generations…, and the fourth generation, which is the most exalted, is kingless and perfect. These people will enter the holy place of their Father and they will reside in rest … They are kings. They are the immortal within the mortal ( The Nag Hammadi, 219 ) Also read Nsukka Civilization: The Peopling of Ancient Nsukka One of the African homes that colonialism has completely deformed beyond certain level of recognition is Nsukka. Colonialism apart, the most affecting factor to the survival of the meaning which the rich cultural enclave, Nsukka, carries will best be blamed on postcolonial political structure. The biggest harm all these have against Nsukka as a people is that they rubbed her of the meaning of her name; their place of origin; how their fathers managed to come into their present abodes and who their ancestors were. A profound understanding of the excerpt above will open the door towards deciphering the meaning and origin of the people call
ETHIOPIA HISTORY & ORIGIN (Extracted from the book, Reality as Myth ) BY ONYEJI NNAJI Those piles of ruins which you see in that narrow valley watered by the Nile, are the remains of opulent cities, the pride of the ancient kingdom of Ethiopia. ... There a people, now forgotten, discovered while others were yet barbarians, the elements of the arts and sciences. A race of men now rejected from society for their sable skin and frizzled hair, founded on the study of the laws of nature, those civil and religious systems which still govern the universe (Count Volney). Because of the position of Ethiopia in the Bible story as one remarkable black nation with ancient history, it becomes almost impossible to see any other nation as being of more ancient than Ethiopia. Ethiopia suddenly became the yardstick for the analysis of the Negro race. And with the influence of Christianity in the inner part of Africa, the adherents were provided
