Joe and Kamala are helping to build the party for the future with their picks.

"Biden bets on a diverse Cabinet and staff to handle the problems of a diverse nation"

Women, people of color, people of talent and smarts, people with disabilities, Asians, people
from the sub Continent, gay people, Hispanics, white guys, people from the Caribbean, (K Harris)
young people and although I can't think of any right now but I am sure they will have some Native
Americans & Muslims too.

And best of all they are smart, talented, and experienced and they reflect "the real America."

One of the best and most needed speeches in America's history

Joe's talk was spot on and filled with class*. BTW the professor of law in Joe also called out
Trump and company too. "Go ahead and show us the proof of election fraud." very very
rough quote.

* Biden even called out to "the other side" to come together and work for America

Daily Kos: The Supreme Court has ruled, treat the Republicans like fascists

The Atlantic:

This is why the authoritarian remedies festering in the Trump fever swamps—martial law, the usurpation of state electors, Supreme Court fiat—are so openly contemplated. Because the true will of the people is that Trump remain president, forcing that outcome, even in the face of defeat, is a fulfillment of democracy rather than its betrayal.
The Republican base’s fundamental belief, the one that Trump used to win them over in the first place, the one that ties the election conspiracy theory to birtherism and to Trump’s sneering attack on the Squad’s citizenship, is that Democratic victories do not count, because Democratic voters are not truly American. It’s no accident that the Trump campaign’s claims have focused almost entirely on jurisdictions with high Black populations.

******

Imagine a world where over one-half of the members in the Republican House of Representatives, including the top Republican in that caucus, sign on to a clumsy, thoroughly bogus attempt to overturn a national election based on contrived lies that add up to nothing except the fact that their man lost. Not just “lost,” mind you, but was soundly beaten. Had his ass kicked, in fact, both in the popular vote and the electoral college tally.

And imagine a Republican Senate Majority equally contemptuous of the winner of that election, wielding the power to hold hostage many of the new President’s first official actions—such as the basic function of picking a Cabinet. That Senate uses the excuse that the election was still being “litigated” to stall even scheduling hearings on his Cabinet nominations.

Imagine the outgoing, losing president, doing his level best to sabotage and hamstring the man who beat him in the election, alternatively whining and threatening elected Republican officials, demanding a list of those opposed to him, so that he could single them out for punishment.

And imagine all of this occurring against the backdrop of the worst public health crisis, combined with an equally virulent economic calamity, to hit this country in over a century.

After a classified briefings, Loeffler and Perdue invested in body bags and then Loeffler said ...

Loeffler disavows photo taken with longtime white supremacist

https://twitter.com/jewishaction/status/1337956225250680836

Sen. Kelly Loeffler’s campaign strongly condemned a photo circulating on social media of her posing with a longtime white supremacist taken at an event in Dawsonville on Friday.

The photo shows Loeffler smiling from beneath an American flag ball cap next to Chester Doles, a longtime white supremacist who spent decades in the Ku Klux Klan and the neo-Nazi National Alliance. He was sentenced to prison for the 1993 beating of a Black man in Maryland and again on weapons violations in Georgia. He also associated with the Hammerskins, a racist skinhead gang with whom he marched in 2017′s violent United the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

snip

Doles posted the picture to his account on VK, a Russian social networking site where he has posted pictures of himself posing with other Georgia politicians, including Republican Congresswoman-elect Marjorie Taylor Greene and Trump-friendly Democratic state Rep. Vernon Jones. Within a few hours, the Loeffler photo had spread to Twitter.

snip

In 2019, Doles started a new organization called American Patriots USA, a group supportive of President Donald Trump but deeply tied to the far-right militia movement. Doles endorsed several longshot political candidates in the 2020 election, but also attempted to tie himself to U.S. Rep.-elect Greene. She had Doles removed from an event in September in Ringgold.

A pro Trump super spreader event today in D.C. / How many of these people will be dead by the 1st?

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1337833603309465600

With the Supreme Court refusing to hear Trump's case what is he won/loss record now?

Last i heard it it was 1 and 54.

Thanx.

Thread with music 300,000 dead Americans







Go ahead and post any thoughts or anything at all.

Go damn Donald Trump. None of this had to have happened. We had the people, the protocols, and
the materials in place but Trump just had to get rid of all of that because they were "the black guy's idea."
And Kushner along with Pompeo sent 18 tons of PPE to China in Feb. 2020 because he and Trump owed
China millions so at the start of the pandemic doctors, nurses, techs, and first responders had to wear
garbage bags and home made masks.





Traitor States. How come so many were part of the Confederate States of America?

These states are suing to keep other states from counting black people's votes because they don't like
the outcome of our elections.

BTW one of the reasons that Trump could steal his way into the White House is the electoral college which
was written into the Constitution in order to placate slave owners so they would sign off on it. It is time
to get rid of that damn thing.

**************

An amicus brief (amicus curiae) or ‘friend of the court’ brief was filed with the high court earlier Wednesday. The states of Missouri, Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah and West Virginia have all signed on to the brief that backs the Texas suit.

Arizona was the latest state to file an amicus brief on Wednesday bringing the total to 18 states.
