Not because the outcome is realistic, but because it's somewhat realistic to Trump's thinking.
I donít expect Trump to win in the courts, but letís say he does you donít think weíll be facing unprecedented looting and riots ? The kind of which will only go away with an army of force ? I donít think heíll win but we are in year 2020. I wonít be shocked.

This is assuming Esper quit, but Trump fired him first. If he wanted to hurt Trump, why not quit before the election to make problems? If he didn't want to hurt Trump, why quit with 72 days left? The job is over. Staying during transition and ensuring a smooth transfer should be in Esper's best interests professionally and is best for the country.

Why with 72 days left? DoD shouldn't be on Trump's radar right now. What does Trump have planned over the next 2 months that this move would make a difference? That NY Times piece is what I'd be looking for.

If Trump got rid of everyone who disagrees, he'd be down to half his staff, especially now, when they have nothing to lose by voicing dissent. This is SECDEF. There's more here.
If theres ay chance he'll win in the courts he'll need someone willing to use force to quash the massive riots/ civil unrest before it leads all out civil war

Itís easy to know AZ ballots arenít more pro trump than the same locations Election Day. If you would know exactly where the uncounted ballots are from, you can call this. Somebody knows. Murdoch & Fox probably too. AZ is stalling to avoid the limelight and ensuing litigation.
You keep saying that Murdoch knows but what makes you think so, because heís not uncalling it ? What would they gain by doing that? Imagine they uncalled it and then had to call it again for Biden...

People seem to get consolation by believing that bots bought all the sneakers.

Here is the problem: you can only get one pair per account. Letís assume that our hypothetical nerds are using Android on a VM, they still need the bot to open the app, sign in, get the sneakers, and checkout. Assuming they can pull this off with minimal or no testing, how are they creating multiple accounts? Each account requires a Google Play account AND a Nike account. Nike requires a unique phone number for each account. Do you know how many accounts they will need to buy out 35,000 pairs?

So either there are many, many hacker nerds out there, or you can just accept the fact that hundreds of thousands (maybe millions?) of people were trying to buy a few thousand pairs of sneakers and the vast majority of people didnít get one.
Lol! Youíre a bit naive. Computers with hacker grade programmer nerds in front of them are capable of a lot. Thereís a reason why thereís talk of making it illegal like ticket bots.

What means Bot's? (don't speak so good english..)
A sophisticated computer program + highly powered computer + vpn + proxy close to seller sever + high speed internet built by smart nerds who are in this business for years. Itís basically programmed  to buy a bunch of pairs in the matter of nanoseconds.

My buying group only got one kids pair. If anyone wants to join, PM. I will be doing shoes, coins and other limited edition items.

I was offering $130 commision (minus taxes pd) for the adult and $50 for the kids and toddler (only bc i didnt have time to research the resale price of the smaller versions)
Highly coveted sneakers like todays drop are being purchased by bots that are more powerful and have higher chances than probably 1000 humans

Letter circulating from Rabbi Berel Wein a few months back:

Even a cursory review of world history allows the reader to realize that great and mighty countries and empires fall not necessarily because of outside pressures, but because of the implosion of the society itself.
Rome ruled the world for over five centuries, and, at the height of its power, it succumbed to barbaric tribes. The breakup and disintegration of the Empire came as Rome was undermined by the spread of Christianity within its society and the dissatisfaction and dissolution of social norms. These factors gave way to internal violence and a complete abandonment of any sense of loyalty to the Empire itself, or to the history that Rome had so carefully fashioned and preserved over its centuries of hegemony. In short, Rome collapsed from within and not from without.

The same can be said of the Spanish Empire in the 16th century, which never recovered from its foolish, and self-destructive exile of its Jewish population at the beginning of the century. It no longer possessed the creativity and will to succeed that had driven it to become one of the major powers in the world.

The Ottoman Empire was also rotten from the inside, and any stress placed upon it would hasten its extinction and disappearance. The first World War provided that stress. and the Ottoman Turkish Empire never recovered. In our time, we have witnessed the destruction of Communism within the Soviet Union after 75 years of brutal and tyrannical rule. Once again, the Soviet Union collapsed from the inside and not from the outside. It had weathered all of the storms of World War II and the Cold War, but it could not survive because of the malaise of its population, the burdens of bureaucracy and inefficient government that it had foisted upon a helpless populace.

A serious question has now arisen regarding the future of the United States of America.

It is a very polarized society, and over the past decades it has lost its moral footing. It has become dissolute, hateful of its own heritage, spoiled by too much material wealth, and subject to Marxist indoctrination emanating from its educational systems. Whether or not the United States will be able to survive this storm is, as of yet, an undecided question. However, it is clear to me that no matter what happens, it will become increasingly difficult for Orthodox Jews to maintain themselves in American society. The entire culture is hostile to Torah values and to a Jewish way of life.
Jews have waxed prosperous over the past decades, and the continuity of Orthodox educational institutions is contingent upon the continuation of that prosperity. However, whether America will have a prosperous future over the next few decades is a difficult question to answer. There will be more governmental regulations regarding curriculum, and the nature of educational classes in schools. Education separated by sex will certainly not be allowed, and the concentration on Torah studies will be severely limited. I hope that I am wrong regarding my fears, but my heart tells me otherwise.


Certainly, the America that I grew up in and lived in for most of my lifetime no longer exists. There is no longer wholesome entertainment nor a feeling of moral probity. America was once a religious country. Today it has become overwhelmingly secular with all the attendant evils that such a change in society inevitably engenders. History teaches us that nothing goes on forever, and that great countries and empires rise but inevitably fall.

For many years, I thought that the United States was an exception to that rule, but I no longer believe so. The curve has already flattened, and we are witness to the downward spiral that leads to irrelevance and impotence in world events, I fervently pray that I am wrong but these are my impressions as I view the current scene.

Shabbat Shalom
R Berel Wein

Without his rallies this election is all but over. He had it in the bag until this moment.
May be quite the opposite https://www.bcm.edu/news/why-we-root-for-underdog

"There have been numerous surveys taken about why people often root for the underdog, and most of them show that more than two-thirds of the people vote for the underdog."

If he wasn't a underdog till now he definitely is now

As a slightly encouraging DP, my child had COVID before Pesach, and just tested for antibodies 2 weeks ago and still had, so at the very least not everyone loses them after 5-6 months. Here's hoping that's true for me as well, I was sick at the same time, tested for antibodies and donated plasma right after Pesach.....
Maybe from second time around  ;)
