Blast from the past: Al Gore explains why he won’t concede election

Thomas Lifson  "The tidal wave of harrumphing over Donald Trump’s refusal to endorse the probity of the voting and vote-counting to come is quite amusing to me. I remember 8 years of accusations from Bush 43 opponents that his election was “stolen” and that he was “selected not elected.” So spare me the righteousness about the need to respect our sacred institutions, unless you can point to your similar criticism of Gore.

"Millennials are probably ignorant of this history. Here’s the video you can send your friends and relatives:"

Selwyn DukeNo, Trump Should Not Accept the Results of a Possibly Stolen Election  "Crooks on the left, cowards on the right. Where do we go to find integrity?
"One of the most talked about parts of last night’s final presidential debate was Donald Trump’s statement that he’d let us know on election night if he’d accept the balloting results. An NBC commentator expressed her bubble-headed opinion that the statement lost him the election. Worse still, “conservative” commentator John Podhoretz wrote that Trump’s comment was “a shocking and cravenly irresponsible thing to say, the sort of thing that threatens to rend our national fabric, and for that alone, Trump has earned his place in the history of American ignominy.” But Podhoretz’ criticism is what’s shocking and cravenly irresponsible — and reflective of profound ignorance." . . .
The author gives the answer he wished Mr. Trump had given:
Yes, sir, and we have another American tradition: it’s called the “rule of law.” And when you suspect an election has been stolen, and allow it to go unanswered, you become complicit in the undermining of our rule of law. Moreover, vote fraud that swings an election thwarts the people’s will. You may not care about that. Hillary Clinton certainly doesn’t care about that. But if I have reasonable suspicion that the Nov. 8 contest has been stolen, I will stand against the thwarting of the rule of law and the people’s will — even if I’m the only person in America to do it.
