The disturbing tweets from GOPers (in Congress) who wouldn't accept Biden's win
By Frida Ghitis
Updated 10:46 AM ET, Sat March 6, 2021


What should happen if the public words and actions of members of Congress helped contribute to the attack on the US Capitol on January 6?

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif), has compiled pieces of the publicly available social media postings made by those representatives who voted to deny Americans their choice of president; they did this even after a riotous mob overran the Capitol just hours earlier. Her nearly 2,000-page report, which has been online for a week, is both a trove of documentation and a steaming electronic landfill of fetid lies and incitement.   <<< Click for details

Federal prosecutors have already charged more than 300 people in connection with the violent assault that sought to keep Congress from certifying Joe Biden's electoral victory. But it was Republican politicians who also helped fuel the fire promoting the Big Lie, the false claim that former President Donald Trump was the real winner; a lie so pernicious that it still infects the country, especially since Trump and his friends are still spreading it.

It represents an ongoing threat to the health of US democracy. The crisis of January 6 has not ended.

Too many officials who voted against certifying a valid democratic election had spent months playing Trump's dangerous game -- some preemptively, ominously casting doubt on the outcome well ahead of November 3, and goading Trump supporters to act even after the votes were in and the winner declared. Many are still at it. Now, Lofgren has cataloged much of what they wrote, and it resembles nothing so much as spent shells after a battle ... mixed with unexploded ordnance.

He spent time working for crumbs until he saw the light. That's when Jordan became and enabler for White leftist elites and other corrupt DC creatures all for the love of money. Also, he was a cocksman who loved white pussy so much it almost cost him his life.

Devin

Those are some of the best arguments you have posted on this site.

You even used empirical data and not just personal experience or hearsay - neither of which are universal.

Now, that's an Onnidan response that can be respected.  I'm overjoyed to have indulged you and even more pleased with your rebuttal... 

I concur with your reply...

What good are mask guidelines if you're allowing indoor dining and gyms and bars to be open?  :shrug:

The problem is the germ, proper mask and mask wearing prevents each of us from acquiring and/or spreading the corona virus. Have you not gone to a Wal-mart or Target, a grocery story or gas station since March 15, 2020??? 

You have got to be aware of the fact that US airlines are still flying Americans across the country and have not had an acknowledged spreader event - you are aware that they did not shut down because cargo other than humans are .  There are no restaurants, gyms or bars that have quarters tighter than an airplane...

UPS, FEDEX, USPS, DHL and Amazon have not scaled down, but have in fact been working around the clock to get goods distributed to "Us" and there are millions of people working in those industries with "no word on spreader events"...

Grocery stores, pharmacies, fast food franchises, and retail stores like Wal-Mart, Target, Home Depot and Lowe's have not shutdown but have been open throughout the pandemic...

Restaurants ( using delivery services), liquor and wine stores, home health businesses and delivery services like "Meals on Wheels" have not suspended services throughout the pandemic... 

Kitchens to cook have not been redesigned.  Cashier registers for checkout have not been moved around. The giving of medication and/or companionship is not done via Zoom.

My point is, we can be around one another safely, as long as those who we are around are following CDC guidelines wearing mask, washing their hands regularly, etc... 

The solution is not to stay home and do nothing, China has soared economically and are hard arse about those with Corona Virus in general... 

####################################################################################################################################

The Chinese government is not locking down for more than a month at a time - they have a pattern of shutting down for a month and then re-opening and monitoring the populace for mini spikes and if the occur, isolation and quarantine is imposed.

Our problem is some Americans won't quarantine, nor will they wear mask - if they don't want to follow the CDC guidelines let them die, you can't love someone more than they should love themselves... 

Today vaccines are an option also...

:clap:^^^EXACTLY, soflo. 

These GOP governors lifting mask mandates are vicious and evil and don’t give a rat’s a.z.z about the health of their constituents. These are PURELY raw political moves and they KNOW the people of their states are too dispirited and demoralized to push back.

Man, this country is F’ed.  :no:

But it just ain’t GOP governors, though. Cuomo in New York lifted restrictions on indoor dining last month for Valentines Day because “billions” and the “economy” were at stake. 

Then Newsom out in California lifted restrictions after the state went through a horrific December and January. Other democrat governors and mayors are doing similar things, too.

It just ain’t “red” states or “blue” states. It’s elected officials everywhere endangering us.

New York and California are still under mask guidelines however...  Here's the mask guidelines for all 50 states...

So, it's not just me that notice... :nod:

Not by a long shot, bruh...

Nicolas Sarkozy, former president of France, found guilty of corruption, gets prison time
Associated Press Published 9:04 a.m. ET March 1, 2021


The court found that Sarkozy and his co-defendants sealed a “pact of corruption,” based on “consistent and serious evidence”.

The court said the facts were “particularly serious” given that they were committed by a former president who used his status to help a magistrate who had served his personal interest. In addition, as a lawyer by training, he was “perfectly informed” about committing an illegal action, the court said.

Sarkozy had firmly denied all the allegations against him during the 10-day trial that took place at the end of last year.

The corruption trial focused on phone conversations that took place in February 2014.

At the time, investigative judges had launched an inquiry into the financing of the 2007 presidential campaign. During the investigation they incidentally discovered that Sarkozy and Herzog were communicating via secret mobile phones registered to the alias “Paul Bismuth.”

Conversations wiretapped on these phones led prosecutors to suspect Sarkozy and Herzog of promising Azibert a job in Monaco in exchange for leaking information about another legal case, known by the name of France’s richest woman, L’Oreal heiress Liliane Bettencourt.

In one of these phone calls with Herzog, Sarkozy said of Azibert : “I’ll make him move up ... I’ll help him.”

The Georgia counties turning the state blue are growing. And quickly.
Feb. 28, 2021, 8:32 AM EST
By Dante Chinni



WASHINGTON — Last week, David Perdue announced he would not run to recapture his Senate seat in Georgia for the Republicans. Many in the political class wondered why a strong candidate with deep family ties and a history as an incumbent would take a pass at a chance to run again.

The answer might lie in broader political changes in Georgia itself.

While Joe Biden's presidential win in the state and the Senate victories of Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff were heralded as surprises in the last election cycle, a closer look at recent election data in the state shows they might be breakthroughs to a new norm, rather than simple 2020 shockers.

Let's start by looking at the overall shift in the state's presidential vote over the past 12 years.



In 2008, Barrack Obama captured 52.8 percent of the national popular vote. This past November President Joe Biden won a smaller percentage of the national popular vote, 51.2 percent, about 1.6 points less.

But compare those two elections in Georgia and the story is different. Biden did about 2.5 points better than Obama in the state, getting nearly 50 percent of the vote, while Obama didn't quite get to 47 percent in 2008.

At the time, that Obama number seemed to be something of an outlier — perhaps a high-water mark for a Democrat propelled by an increase in the African-American vote. But even in 2016, when Hillary Clinton was the Democratic nominee, she received more than 45 percent of the vote in the state. That number was higher than the 43 percent and 41 percent that Democratic nominees Al Gore and John Kerry won in the state respectively in 2000 and 2004.

The reality is that the vote in Georgia has moved considerably in the last dozen years, and behind that move is a massive set of swings to the Democrats around Atlanta. In fact, comparing 2008 to 2020, seven of the 10 counties that swung most heavily to the Democrats in the entire country were in metro Atlanta.



In each of those counties — Cobb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale — Biden did at least 11 points better in 2020 than Obama did in 2008.

To be clear, Biden didn’t win all of those counties in 2020. He won five of them by large amounts, but Forsyth and Fayette still solidly voted for Donald Trump in November. The problem for Trump, and possibly for Republicans going forward, were the margins. Some of those counties “flipped” Democratic — but, just as important, where Trump lost, he lost by more than McCain did in 2008. Where he won, he won by less.

Those seven counties around Atlanta hold challenges for the GOP. They are very diverse, most have high percentages of college graduates and, perhaps most important, all of them are growing, and quickly.

Not only are all these seven counties growing faster than the nation as a whole since 2010, but five of them are growing faster than Georgia in that time, and the state is adding people at a very high rate. In other words, the counties fueling the state’s political changes are also driving much of its population growth.

Add it all up and Georgia presents a troubling picture for the GOP right now. Political winds can quickly change, of course, but there are reasons to believe the story of the state has legs beyond this year and beyond its borders.

The path the Republican Party has taken in recent years, pushed in part by Donald Trump, seems to have increased the Republicans odds in places in the Industrial Midwest, such as Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin. But in states with growing suburban populations, the story may be reversed.

Right now, Georgia looks a bit like Virginia did 12 years ago, a southern state being changed by a big, diversifying, educated metropolitan center. When Obama won Virginia in 2008, it was the sign of a deeper, long-term change afoot there. A similar path in Georgia would have enormous impacts on the electoral map and the Senate.
