#Biden managed to do what #Trump never could: secure both the electoral #vote and the popular vote.
 

With any luck and a strong legal team to fight interference, the United States will have a new president-elect shortly


There's the question of what happens to the trash once it's been removed. Some fear that "if he loses the presidency, he doesn't lose his voice or influence."

That's certainly a risk.

More likely to me though is that he'll prove to have been a useful idiot and fall from sight.

I'm not banking on this. But it's pretty obvious he's far less an inspiring or savvy leader than a useful and pliable tool. His usefulness spent, the true puppetmasters will discard him as they do anything else past its useful life.

The bad news is that they, and those susceptible to their sway, will remain.

An open investigation of political crimes, interference, corruption, foreign manipulation (or worse), and more, must follow. As must a restrengthening of institutions (the press, media old and new, courts, education, rehabilitation, public health, politics and their parties), and of civic mindedness and civic values --- liberty, equality, justice, fraternity.

Forty-Five: A Republic, if you can keep it (2016)

I don't like commenting on current politics, I don't think I'm good at it, things move far too quickly for my preference of considered commentary, the topic itself (and the inevitable discussions) tends to annoy me, and there's far too much superior competition.

Still, with many others I'm absorbing in a state of shock the news of Donald John Trump, 45th president-elect of the United States of America. And am wondering, how did we get here? ...

A piece from four years ago. I had my doubts when I hit "publish", though it seems to have weathered well. And be worth revisiting.

Here's to a 46 in 2021.

Amid USPS delays, election experts and campaigns weigh in: Don’t mail your ballot

... “If you haven’t requested a mail ballot yet, it’s too late,” said David Becker, executive director at the nonprofit, nonpartisan Center for Election Innovation & Research. “I don’t care about the legal deadline; it’s just too late in terms of getting it processed, getting it mailed to you and you being able to fill it out and return it. You’re just putting too much pressure on yourself. At this point, if you haven’t requested a mail ballot yet, plan to vote in person and vote early, if possible."

Voters who requested but have yet to receive a mail ballot should vote in person, Becker said. They may be required to fill out a provisional ballot, but it will count as long as they do not also submit a mailed ballot. Voters who have received their mail ballot but have not turned it in yet should do so in person or at a ballot drop box. ...

For the first time in its 97-year history, Time magazine is removing its logo from its cover. In its place, a directive: “Vote.”

Well, I voted. I had to drive to three different polling locations to find one with a wait less than 90 minutes (even though the County Clerk's precious wait time page said under 20 for all of them). So I spent more than two hours and drove more than 42 miles to vote. This is straight-up voter suppression.

"Mike Pence, all he can do is look backwards, and attract flies"

- Caroline Randall Williams / Vanderbilt University , tonight on "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell.

My quote of the day, along with an observation that on the same day Trump managed to call for Biden's indictment, refuse a sanctioned (safe) debate, and challenge Biden to a non-official debate. (A cage-match without masks?) All this as Trump's cultists are caught in the midst of a plot to kidnap a governor and massacre people. Just another day in the life of the #trumpvirus.

"They come within an inch of my face.... and I'm not telling them to not do it" - also today, on his disregard for spreading COVID. SMH

Make no mistake: if you are out of work, if your business is closed, if your child’s school is shut down, if you are seeing layoffs in your community, Donald Trump decided today that none of that — none of it — matters to him

Joe Biden ramps up efforts in Texas with $6 million ad buy

... Biden’s advertising blitz comes days after Beto O’Rourke, the former El Paso congressman who came within 2.6 points of defeating U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in 2018, made the case for increased spending in Texas in an op-ed for the Washington Post with Tory Gavito, president and cofounder of Way to Win, a national coalition of Democratic donors, and former executive director of the Texas Future Project.

The two urged the campaign to invest big, late money in Texas, which they said could “put an end to the suspense about whether President Trump will concede defeat Nov. 3.” ...

Joe Biden calls for unity and racial justice at Gettysburg speech

Re: U.S. "Presidential Debate" last night.
A melee and bullying/blocking exercise, all the pundits and those who could watch agree, a disaster.

Once again, bottom line, Bette Midler nailed it!


Fingers crossed. Recap of my 3 predictions over a year ago:
1. Trump will never participate in an actual debate ✓
2. Trump's lifetime of crime and victimization will be settled in NYSD Court, and will go down via Tish James, not Mueller.
3. We'll hear discussion of whether Trump might plead "not guilty by reason of insanity" or lack of competency to understand....

Stay tuned....

Google will learn how much they can get away with and abuse their position even more.
That's their now-fashionable use of "machine learning". ;) Sadly.

Yes, we all need to be wary... And need to focus. Right now, on our survival.
Social justice, equity, fairness, etc., are on the ballot; Google is just on the take.
