Is the ISIS attack on Virginia over?

Any reports on the casualties?

Has the Isis Attack on Virginia started yet?

They are just laughing at us.

If the situation were reversed, if Trump had won the election and 'BLM' and 'antifa' had stormed Congress in an attempt to prevent the constitutional process of confirming the election, there would have been a national emergency declared that same day. Thousands of people would have been arrested, including members of congress and perhaps Biden himself.

They would have pushed for treason charges against everyone and done their best to execute as many people as they could.

They are just fucking laughing at us.

Well we are having a revolution, and not in a good way.

AOC's Old-Fashioned Machine Politics

Democrats could learn not only from her social-media skills but also from her constituent services.

Some constituents of Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez actually got something out of politics this year beside a barrage of campaign advertisements: With a sliver of the almost $19 million that she raised on her glide to re-election, AOC bought and gave away 200 Thanksgiving turkeys.

Turkeys are reminiscent of New York’s Tammany Hall, which used to deliver birds, along with coal and other useful things, to Democratic constituents. Much of AOC’s New York City district is poor. If government is hobbled, and mediating institutions like political parties and unions (another traditional source of holiday turkeys) are diminished, constituent needs go unmet. That’s both challenge and opportunity.

“The Congresswoman believes that when a larger federal response fails, as it has with Covid-19, we have a responsibility to think creatively about what we can do with others in our community to meet the needs of our constituents,” said Ocasio-Cortez campaign spokesperson Lauren Hitt in an email. Hitt said AOC campaign volunteers and donors made 200,000 community check-in calls, delivered 80,000 meals, distributed 100,000 masks and recruited more than 11,000 tutors for students in remote learning.

Conservative New Hampshire paper backs Biden -- its first Democratic endorsement in 100 years

Source: CNN

The New Hampshire Union Leader, a conservative-leaning newspaper, has endorsed Democratic candidate Joe Biden for president, despite its century-long history of backing Republicans. In backing Biden, the newspaper endorsed its first Democratic candidate in over 100 years.

"Building this country up sits squarely within the skill set of Joseph Biden. We have found Mr. Biden to be a caring, compassionate and professional public servant," the Union Leader editorial board wrote on Sunday. "He has repeatedly expressed his desire to be a president for all of America, and we take him at his word."

The paper's editorial board did however highlight what it calls "significant" policy disagreements with Biden, which the board says it expects to spend a "portion of the next four years disagreeing with."

"Joe Biden may not be the president we want, but in 2020 he is the president we desperately need," the editorial continued. "He will be a president to bring people together and right the ship of state."
