Nonetheless, massive amounts of time and effort, including emotional energy, continue to be misspent on Trump’s hopeless cause. Trump also is bleeding dry the funding sources that should be used for other purposes, including the two runoffs for U.S. Senate in Georgia. Indeed, plenty of others correctly have noted the numerous ways in which Trump’s electoral challenge is making it more difficult for the Republican, conservative candidates to win those Georgia races.

Georgia, though, is merely the most imminent concern. It is hardly the only one.

Biden will enter office just a month from now with aggressive plans for an early blitz of executive actions and legislative initiatives. He will enjoy a narrow majority in the House and a closely divided Senate in which several Republicans do agree with him on some priorities that conservatives oppose. He will benefit from fawning coverage by the establishment news media and major biases in his favor from tech giants, academia, and the entertainment world. Much of the federal bureaucracy, too, will cut corners where possible to help his agenda, whereas the administrative state largely opposed Trump.
