Respect the Will of Voters and Ensure Peaceful Presidential Transition

Target: Emily Murphy, Administrator of the U.S. General Services Administration

Goal: Officially recognize election results so presidential transition can formally get underway.

The roughly two-and-half months in between presidential terms are much more than a so-called “lame duck” session. This period of time is crucial for enabling a smooth and efficient transfer of power. Alarmingly, the organization tasked with helping ensure this transfer is seemingly playing politics and putting the nation’s welfare at imminent risk in the process.

The General Services Administration (GSA) officially affirms the result of a presidential election and recognizes the winner. Once this crucial step takes place, the president-elect can formally begin a flurry of tasks that need to be undertaken during the transition period. For example, key members of the incoming administration receive routine intelligence briefings instrumental for American national security. An affirmation from the administration also releases needed government funds that the new leadership will use in communicating with and staffing federal agencies. Vital workspaces and supplies are also supposed to be given to the president-elect and his team courtesy of this administration.

The Trump-appointed head of the GSA has yet to green-light this process. The roadblock will imperil important efforts of the incoming president when he officially begins his term in January, such as a proposed swift action plan for the COVID-19 crisis. The administration is using President Trump’s refusal to concede as cover, but no reasonable excuse exists for withholding what is supposed to be an apolitical, non-controversial action.

Sign the petition below to demand the GSA do its job and stop jeopardizing a peaceful transfer of power.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Murphy,

The damage you are causing with your lack of ascertainment for the presidential election becomes more severe with every passing day. You are preventing the appointment of over 4,000 essential health, national security, and other government positions. You are blockading absolutely critical security briefings. You are slow-walking the implementation of action plans for some of our nation’s worst crises. And in your most unforgiving dereliction of duty, you are putting the ego of one man over the welfare of an entire country and in the process upending decades of traditional, peaceful transfers of power.

You know the results of this election.  The Center for Presidential Transition and scores of political vets from both sides of the aisle affirmed as much in their letter imploring you to carry out the duties that you took an oath to perform. Do not go down in history as the first and only to question and shirk this responsibility. Heed the calls to ascertain the election and help this democracy withstand any challenge.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Mrs. Murphy does NOT know the results of this election any more than anyone else DOES! WHY—-BECAUSE OF WIDESPREAD VOTER FRAUD & CORRUPTION: corrupt & unreliable Dominion software used in 22+ states, dead people voting, whistleblower testimony attesting to back-dating of ballots, ballots with only ONE candidate listed (Biden, of course), hundreds of ballots thrown away by USPS workers (Trump only, of course), & many other irregularities! So Mrs. Murphy is a WISE WOMAN to wait for the fair & honest election results! Hints: Watch the Water and NCSWIC!!!

      This is gibberish and a conspiracy theory. With Trump supporters it’s always “heads I win, tails you lose”. If Trump loses, it’s because he was cheated and if he wins, it’s because he’s just that great. If the Democrats just pulled off a giant voter fraud, why didn’t they bother to win the Senate and why did they allow themselves to lose seats in the House? Like I said, your conspiracy theories are gibberish.

      • I want to see tRump led out by the feds.

      • Recount in Georgia NOTHING HAS CHANGED But trumptards cannot accept the TRUTH. 16 U.S. attorneys found NO FRAUD. Two law firms dropped fascist pos.

        • Gillian Miller says:

          Ever actually read the news? The corruption in Dem run states stinks so badly that they can smell it around the world.

          • Keep telling yourself that.YOU LOST. GET OVER IT!!

          • Down with vile and evil corrupt Trump and his cronies. They are the destroyers of America, the precious and defencless Wildlife, the environment and everthing that Trump and his cronies can destroy.
            Jo Biden won this election fairly and you monsters are the bastards that are causing all this trouble. We can smell the corrupt Trump cronies and his lowlife followers from hell. Good riddance to vile and evil Trump and his cronies.

      • Gillian Miller says:

        Trump cheated? So, while you were watching the results on TV and they suddenly changed with Trump’s figures dropping and Biden’s suddenly increasing? Republican poll monitors thrown out during counting? Trump voting papers thrown out? Sharpies given to Trump voters instead of pencils? Guiding voters on how to vote telling them to vote Biden? The votes from dead people? More votes cast than the number of people who went into the polling station? CCTV evidence. Voting slips found. US Post Office found to have interfered. And the stupid bitch who posts this petition says that Trump’s claims are unfounded? Some people really are as thick as shit. Then, who wants that criminal pedophile who is owned by China, takes bribes, and is so senile that everyone knows that Harris will take over in a couple of months.

    • Wipe your tears. Crying all over the place. BIDEN AND HARRIS!!!!!!GET OVER IT.

    • Evan Jane Kriss says:

      Wow, Linda, really? You need to start paying attention to the facts. NONE of what you say has ANY basis in fact.

    • You’re absolutely correct, Linda…and these other liberal freaks, including Tiff the Disrupter ( have you noticed how many stupid or anti-American polls are started by tiffany white?? ), are so anti-trump that they would see the end of America rather than support someone who was doing good work. Gilda is just a freaking liberal ho with a filthy mouth and shows that she knows nothing every time that she opens said filthy mouth.

    • Sucker Carlson made claims if dead voters. Agnes Blalock and other ‘ dead voters’ are speaking out FAUX NEWS FOR BRAINDEAD PEOPLE.

    • The fraud and corruption is evil Trump,his cronies and his vile and evil followers from hell.
      Jo Biden won this election and you lowlife Trump suporters are the fraud and corruption. Trump the destroyer of America.

    GSA: DO YOUR JOB. You are endangering democracy and exposing Americans to attacks by foreign interests.

  3. Gillian Miller says:

    The MSM and the establishment want Trump out because he stands against everything that they are. Adrenocromes take little children, scare them and then milk their blood on the basis that it makes them young. Trump has spent millions on trying to stop child trafficking. Do you hear about that? Yet if someone says that Trump called those in the American WWII cemetery in France losers, everyone wants to believe it even knowing that Trump has nothing but admiration for the military.

  4. THE DEMOCORRUPTS AND LIBERAL HACK ‘JUDGES’ CHEATED AND THEY KNOW IT. WHY WERE CONSERVATIVES NOT ALLOWED TO VIEW THE BALLOTS BEING COUNTED? WHY DID THESE CAREER CRIMINALS PUT UP CARD BOARD ON THE WINDOWS? WHY ARE THERE SO MANY WITNESSES WILLING TO TESTIFY UNDER OATH BUT WERE NOT ALLOWED? IT’S VERY CLEAR THAT THE DEMOCORRUPTS KNOW THAT TRUMP WON BUT THEY WEREN’T GOING TO ALLOW THAT. BIDEN WILL GET THE SAME TREATMENT THAT THEY GAVE DONALD TRUMP, IT’S TIME TO START IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS, REMEBER THAT CRAZY JOE AND HIS FAMILY COMMITTED TREASON BECAUSE THEY WERE DOING BUSINESS WITH CHINA, UKRAINE AND RUSSIA.

  5. Fascist dotard will escorted by the feds.

  6. This keeps getting better and better. Fraud ” witness’s just admitted he is friends with tRump lawyer and lied about fraud. In a court of law. JAIL TIME FOR LYING TRUMPTARDS.

  7. This past four years has been too crazy to believe! We have had someone “leading” this Country who knows nothing about the Constitution or the law. He has taken it upon himself to tear this Country apart with lies and reassurances that have never come true. He has downplayed the seriousness of a major pandemic, assuring us that it would just disappear instead of warning us to be careful and presenting a plan to protect us. He runs the highest Office in this Country as if he were a game show host and has made this once great Country a laughing stock to other countries.He has defied every scientific conclusion about climate change and the consequences of it that have already damaged our world. He lives in the moment but doesn’t consider the future for those that will be here when he is gone. Who of us with children doesn’t want the world to be a good, if not better, place for them when we are gone? This Country, and this world, needs this change in leadership more now than ever before. We all need to welcome it and let it take its rightful place. No more frivolous lawsuits for imagined voter fraud, no more tantrums from POTUS and no more lies. Let this Country heal and move on.
