Yeah, Cheating Is Likely Occurring -- But We Are Just Losing Too....

Democrats are losing. Now, some of this could easily be election rigging on behalf of Republicans, true enough.

The FACT has to circle around Democrats are losing too.

There were in the last three months - three special elections. Trump's so-called "approval rating" is supposedly 36% and has never supposedly reached beyond 45%. Yet, the Democrats have lost all three Special Elections.

Money was NOT the issue in the Ossoff race. Repeat, NOT the ISSUE.

When upwards of $25 MILLION DOLLARS is spent on a Congressional race, sorry Charley -- there was enough money in the race to win it, point, blank, period.

So now, we return back to election rigging. Which is/was a possibility. However, don't we know this is a UNIQUE POSSIBILITY, after the Clinton/Trump race? Of course, we did.

If we have not learned that YET, and know to REALLY win the other side must be down by 10 points a night before the election (instead of us up by 1-2%) -- then races will continue to be lost - as the GOP will rig the game if it's anywhere near close.

Another point. Ossoff not living in the district was the X-Factor which also lost this race for him, in the end.


And if one is running to represent an area, district, township, city, state --- they need to LIVE where they want to be elected at.

Lastly, the Democrats need to new game plan. How to build it, we don't know but it HAS TO BE BUILT -- as the GOP will cheat, lie, steal and anything else they have to do, to win.

What Will The Democrats Do, In Return?

Wolf Blitzer CNN: "This Was Not It Was a Rough Neighborhood Or Something"

Referring to the Shooting of a GOP Congressional member today along with two staff members.

Like if individuals get shot in whatever Wolf Blitzer think are "Rough Neighborhoods" and are not a GOP Member of Congress and their associated staff, they deserve it or something.

Maybe the news media need to take a big dose of STFU before running to the studio to give the breaking news play by play.

How f***ing insulting to anyone that has been shot and killed in anywhere, but guess it does not count as much to Wolf Blitzer if the neighborhood was "rough" or better yet -- was primarily African-American.

Isn't that what you really meant by "Rough Neighborhood" WOLF BLITZER OF CNN???

LeBron James Talks Vandalism, Racism: Being Black In America Is Tough

Source: Huffington Post

“We got a long way to go for us as a society,” James said at a conference after a racial slur was spray-painted on his home."

LeBron James’ Los Angeles home was vandalized with a racial slur on Wednesday morning, an incident that the LAPD is investigating as a hate crime.

On the eve of the NBA Finals, James spoke about the incident during a press conference Wednesday afternoon. He stressed that “racism will always be a part of the world and of America” and how Americans still have a long way to go.

The basketball star also made reference to the murder of Emmett Till ― a 14-year-old boy who was brutally killed in 1955 after being accused of whistling at a white woman. He said the vandalism on his home immediately made him think of Till’s mother’s decision to hold an open-casket funeral so that everyone in the world could see what racist ideals had done to her son.

James stressed the importance of talking about race relations, finding a shred of hope in the incident for its ability to shed light on what it means to be black in America and “continue to keep the conversation going.”

The latter sentiment likely sounds familiar because James spoke out about racism just a few weeks ago when Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones was the target of racial slurs.

“Racism is gonna be a part of time forever, I believe, but I think for us, the people that have the opportunities to have a voice and people that have an opportunity to have some play on the youth that’s coming up, we have to lead them the best way we can, and we have to live with the results...” James said in response to what happened to Jones. “It’s a real, real longer conversation, but if we can keep the conversation going, I think it helps.”

“No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you: Being black in America is tough,” James said during the conference. “We got a long way to go for us as a society and for us as African-Americans until we feel equal in America.”

It would be nice if this can stay in LBN. We'll see. As there is a complete breakdown in basic decorum and racial relations in America. It's happening bit by bit. Little by little. Starting with how former President Barack Obama was treated, his family, kids, to the shootings of unarmed African-American Men, Women, Girls and Boys, to the "Selection" of Trump and now this with many other incidents in-between.

It's a dangerous time in America and sadly, the worse likely have yet to come. We have not and likely will not in this lifetime, Overcome.
