Wake up call for republicans (a must see!)

Insight into the "Warnock - Perdue" republican voters in Georgia

Why Some Georgia Voters Split Their Ballots Between Democrats And Republicans

"It didn't seem like there was a lot of daylight in terms of policy in terms of their stances on Trump, in terms of what they do for Georgia between David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler," said Bernard Fraga, a political scientist at Emory University. "So the fact that a relatively small number of Republican voters were willing to vote for David Perdue but not Kelly Loeffler is an interesting phenomenon."

Nathan Muller is one of these Georgians who saw daylight between the candidates where campaign strategists designed there to be none.

"...(Loeffler's) messaging was just so, you know, bang, bang, bang the drum for Trump. 'More conservative than Attila the Hun' ... Like, are you nuts?" Muller said, referring to a series of ads the Loeffler campaign released, which featured an actor dressed up as the barbaric ruler from the 400s.

That ad also cost Loeffler Matthew Mutnick's vote. He's another Perdue-Warnock voter, who works in finance in Atlanta.

The Attila the Hun' ad:

I know this is old news considering the insurrection that occurred, but I'm glad NPR did this story. I think it's important to clarify what happened since some were trying to suggest that the vote differences were a result of black anti-semitism. When you look at the vote totals, it's evident that Perdue received around 20k more votes than Loeffler, which is about the same margin between Warnock and Ossoff. It's really interesting, since those republicans could have abstained from voting in the Warnock-Loeffler race, which would have made it appear as though 20k voters only voted for 1 candidate.

I wish pence could be impeached too. He could end this crisis right now, if he wanted to

but he's cowering in a corner somewhere... avoiding calls and still covering for the guy who tried to have him killed.

I fully understand that attempting to impeach pence right now would be foolish and unsuccessful.

Here's his plan: arrest Hunter biden, then wait for all the fallout

and high-pitched shrieks from Democrats about not arresting political opponents and their children. He'll let the outrage go on for the final two weeks of his presidency, and then he'll pardon Hunter (and himself) with a fake, reality show speech about unity.

tRump's expectation is that Democrats will be held to the same standard with regard to him and his children.

I just don't see how this can continue

We've been at a stalemate for decades now--unable to address important problems related to healthcare, new technologies, etc, because republicans are OBSESSED with women's vaginas, discriminating against minorities, and increasing their personal portfolios at the expense of Americans and our country.

They don't give two shits about this country nor the people in it.

They are just takers at this point--benefiting from the huge accomplishments that were a direct result of diversity and immigration, while publicly asserting to their followers that diversity and immigration are bad.

They don't understand cause and effect. They don't understand history. They are too stupid to lead. Yet, here we are. At the mercy of crooked and compromised individuals, like Moscow Mitch and Lindsey Graham.


Are we witnessing the beginning of the end of the United States?

And if so, what should we be doing right now?

I don't know what to make of the 18 states asking the Supreme Court to invalidate my vote and millions of others.

Then we have the death threats and incitement to violence coming from the very top.

What exactly are we observing right now?

The discussion on whether trump should be prosecuted should wait until 1-21-21

Keep in mind, trump is an extremely dangerous crazy person who still has the nuclear codes.

Basically, Biden is acting as a hostage/crisis negotiator. Over the past 3 weeks, trump has fired pentagon officials, asked about bombing Iran, exited the Open Skies Treaty and trashed some very expensive observation planes, all while still insisting that he "won" the election.

Biden understands that now is NOT the right time to make certain statements on what he will or won't do with regard to prosecutions, considering the perilous predicament the entire country is in right now.

Just my opinion, of course.

Clarification: I'm referring to public statements from Biden. We can discuss it as much as we want (obviously).

Elon Musk Contacted a Harvard Doctor. The Response Is a Master Class in Emotional Intelligence

Elon Musk was frustrated. He had been experiencing mild sniffles, a cough, and a slight fever--enough symptoms to convince him to get tested for Covid-19. Musk, who obviously has more resources and greater access to medical treatment than the average person, ended up taking a total of four tests (according to the story he shared on Twitter).

"Something extremely bogus is going on," Musk tweeted. "Two tests came back negative, two came back positive. Same machine, same test, same nurse. Rapid antigen test from BD."

The internet was quick to respond. Some reached out to Musk to see how he was feeling. Writer Stephen King simply replied, "You're pos." A scientist openly mocked Musk, calling him "Space Karen" and accusing the tech CEO of not reading up on the test "before complaining to his millions of followers."

But then something very interesting happened. Musk decided to reach out directly to an expert in the field of communicable disease (on Twitter, of course). What followed was a master class in communication, persuasion, and emotional intelligence.


Bernie is now openly campaigning for Sec of Labor on Chris Cuomo's show

He claims that the GOP Governor promised to appoint a Democrat in his place. Ummm... Is Bernie serious? Republicans have zero shame. He must have missed the Supreme Court flip-flopping.

Peeked at Fox News - they said trump should campaign for Loeffler and Perdue in Georgia

so he can leave office on a high note.

I guess they want him to hold back to back super spreader rallies across the state of Georgia for the next 8 weeks.

I think trump's more likely to turn on republicans and take his trumpers with him.

I guess we're about to find out.
