More news and perspectives on the most recent treasonous election rigging by the GOP from voter suppression, to rigging their districts to win with less votes, to making it difficult - and inconvenient - to vote for everyone, to just plain refusing to count votes out of fear of losing.
Election highlights voter suppression efforts in GA, ND We saw example after example of an electoral system designed to make it harder for people to vote - voter ID laws, broken machines, registration problems, and insanely long lines.
Republicans did anti-American and undemocratic things that should have ended their career immediately...
Now That's What I Call Bullshit We Won't Forget | Full Frontal on TBS
Every campaign has it's bullshit that we forget and move on from, but now you can hold on to every hit from this 2018 midterm season with one convenient video!
The key to understanding the Republicans election rigging is that they win considerable more seats with LESS votes than their opponents. In other words, this is not a fair system of government which makes sense since GOP isn't a democratic institution but a tyrannical and authoritarian one.
We're reluctant to ever trust that an election will be good or fun again, but Tuesday night went kind of ok! (Also, Sessions was forced to resign and Trump accosted Acosta. What a ride!)
Clearly the GOP should not have the Senate in a Democracy based on the American Constitution (GOP should be seen as unAmerican and thus treasonous period)
Gerrymandering: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO) - Lawmakers often reshape voting districts to shift the balance of political power. That's unfair to voters, even those of us with questionable judgment.

Trump thinks Georgia race was ‘stacked against’ Kemp (it wasn’t)
In his latest Fox News interview, which aired yesterday, Donald Trump was eager to defend the Republican Party’s poor showing in the midterm elections by arguing that he personally looked good. The president was specifically excited about Georgia’s gubernatorial race, which ended late on Friday afternoon with Brian Kemp’s (R) victory.
Update - Nov 20, 2018:
Such a blatant lie it makes me wonder which country they think they are in;
Right-wing media claim Democrats are trying to “steal” Florida elections by insisting all votes be counted
Marco Rubio falsely claims "democrat lawyers" are trying to steal Florida elections
Fake equivalency example (Note: Joe normally follows conservative talking points but there seems to be some hidden game the "establishment" GOP seem to be playing - such as Cheney and Bush & Kochs - , of which he is a helper. Also, alot of media are helping them by not pointing out the treason by the GOP representative/politicians everytime they talk to one of those traitors. "Being civil" is one of the talking points they use to normalize lies and untruths by the GOP, who are - and have always been - uncivil);

Fox's fake business channel gets involved;

And that's really their agenda here, they're going to stoke the flames of resentment."
Lou Dobbs, a no shame liar & traitor (originally from CNN, the way Megyn Kelly was originally from Fox News... apparently there is an exchange program within corporate media that excuses past of racism and treason... a sign of something deeper?)..., is also a host of the fake Fox Business channel, who is here openly using eliminationism to attack people (apparently attacking people is good business?);
Lou Dobbs suggests with no evidence that sweeping Democratic victories in 2018 were due to migrants who voted illegally Lou Dobbs: "Millions of illegal immigrants cross our borders, and many of them voting in the past election that's what, just a couple weeks ago, and having an immense impact"
