Well, it’s official…
Now that Georgia and Michigan have certified their elections, the head of the General Services Administration has released funds for the Biden transition.
Up until this point, GSA head Emily Murphy was only doing what she thought was right.
She was trying to uphold the laws of the land and not prematurely transition when the election was still being contested and a clear-cut winner had not been determined.
So, she held off releasing those transition funds until that happened—but of course, that’s not what the Left believes.
Given that she’s a Trump appointee, the Liberals and Democrats automatically believed that Trump coerced Murphy into holding out on the transition, even though that wasn’t the case.
Trump never pressured her, and in her formal letter to Joe Biden, she let him know exactly that. “Please know that I came to my decision independently, based on the law and available facts,” she wrote. “I was never directly or indirectly pressured by any Executive Branch official—including those who work at the White House or GSA—with regard to the substance or timing of my decision.”
Now, we all knew this was the case, but they needed to hear it from the horse’s mouth—not that they’d believe it anyway.
The Right Didn’t Pressure Her – But The Left Did
The Left will always think that Trump is somehow trying to pull a fast one—even though he’s shown himself to be someone who’s dedicated to upholding the law.
They accuse him of doing everything they do themselves (which is exactly what their hero, Joseph Goebbels, told them to do).
However, while neither Trump nor anyone else in the administration pressured Murphy in her decision-making process…
The Left definitely did.
People on the Left have sent Emily Murphy death threats for weeks.
Threatened to hurt her family, her co-workers, and even her pets. They’ve been really nasty… and of course the mainstream media hasn’t said a word.
This is what she intimated in that same letter to Biden when she said that she received threats “online, by phone, and by mail directed at my safety, my family, my staff, and even my pets in an effort to coerce me into making this determination prematurely. Even in the face of thousands of threats, I always remained committed to upholding the law.”
That’s dedication—not to Trump, but to the law.
Doing Things Right MATTERS
Murphy wanted to do this by the book—and who could blame her? No one wants to be accused of corruption during this debacle of an election.
This is as close to a concession of the election by Trump as Biden is going to get, but it’s confirmation that the transition will be happening.
That being said, Trump tweeted a thanks to Murphy – saying in a series of them, “I want to thank Emily Murphy at GSA for her steadfast dedication and loyalty to our Country. She has been harassed, threatened, and abused – and I do not want to see this happen to her, her family, or employees of GSA. Our case STRONGLY continues, we will keep up the good fight, and I believe we will prevail! Nevertheless, in the best interest of our Country, I am recommending that Emily and her team do what needs to be done with regard to initial protocols, and have told my team to do the same.”

Once again, Trump proves he’s a class act.
But this story highlights, once again, the difference between the Right and the Left.
The Right acts like adults, ready to do things by the laws and policies in place, while the Left acts like petulant children making demands.
But this isn’t going to change any time soon…
So get used to it.
