And yet with globalization, we seem to have developed a strange apprehension about the efficacy of our ability to apply the innovation and hard work necessary to successfully compete in a complex security and economic environment. Further, we have misunderstood interdependence as a weakness rather than recognizing it as a strength. The key to sustaining our competitive edge, at home or on the world stage, is credibility — and credibility is a difficult capital to foster. It cannot be won through intimidation and threat, it cannot be sustained through protectionism or exclusion. Credibility requires engagement, strength, and reliability — imaginatively applied through the national tools of development, diplomacy, and defense.

Trump pardons Flynn. No surprise. This is another in what likely will be a steady stream of corrupt pardons. Just as Judge Emmet Sullivan refused to grant Barr’s corrupt motion to dismiss, I hope Judge Sullivan sets a hearing on whether this pardon is corrupt & hence illegal/void.

Flynn’s pardon now needs to be entered in the Court docket. Let’s see what Judge Sullivan does next. Remember, the Court isn’t a rubber stamp. It had to approve Flynn’s plea withdrawal and Barr’s attempt at dismissing the prosecution.

I’m familiar with both the video and the aggressive propagandist, Ngo. I can’t help but feel good to see that hateful jerk committing assault against innocent men and numerous women, get knocked out at the end.

I do think that people like Ngo should be held legally liable for creating propaganda that falsely attacks the character of innocent people and incites violence.

You know how strongly I believe in free speech but there is a limit when it comes to libel and incitement.

Violence is not free speech. What trump and his gun toting crackpots are doing is domestic terrorism and should be handled as such. Lawless just like trump and the gop traitors to the Constitution and democracy by trying to obstruct Biden’s victory with outrageous lies.

Trump Tax Write-Offs Are Ensnared in 2 New York Fraud Investigations

Inquiries into the president and his businesses, one criminal and one civil, are now looking at tax deductions taken on consulting fees. Some of the payments appear to have gone to Ivanka Trump.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/19/nyregion/trump-fraud-investigations-taxes.html

These are great back-to-back stories. Biden wins GA for the third time and Trump and Ivanka are in the crosshairs of the NY investigations. I saw Ivanka throwing a fit today over this which just warms my heart.

GA should be certifying its election tomorrow, MI and PA on this upcoming Monday and that’s that, Biden is certified to have won 279 EVs and certified the winner of the election.

AZ is certified on 11/30, NV and WI on 12/1 but they will be the icing on the cake.

Trump is trying his hardest to bring about a coup but he runs out of time next Monday…as long as Repub legislatures in these states don’t commit sedition and try to block certification. I know Trump demanded the Repubs who control the MI legislature to come to him and bow but the AG in MI said they have no legal way to overturn the election results and I believe him.

I can’t imagine the revolt that would happen around the country if it was possible for Trump to complete this attempted coup but I won’t have to. If reality prevails, one week from today this madness of an entrenched dictatorship should be over.

Has trump or his surrounding suckers ever done anything the right way? They are a bunch of useless arseholes. The closest they will get to a coup is a communal poo while holding hands as they say nice things to dear leader.

How can one pardon the negligent homicide of thousands of Americans?
Pence is as guilty as he is. The only revolt I can see will be the lawsuits against him after they pull him out of the bunker to march him off the property.

There are some very simple facts about Trump that his cultists can’t recognize.

1. Trump is stupid and has been his entire life.

2. Trump has proven to be a failure at nearly everything.

3. Trump is a narcissist and a sociopath, a con man whose only achievements are using lies to deceive people out of believing all of the above.

4. Trump’s only “art of the deal” is bullying others, using lawsuits, threats and hostility, the same childish mentality of a schoolyard bully.

5. Trump’s whole house of cards is going to collapse not long after he is thrown out of the WH. His secrets including his tax returns, what the CIA knows about his involvement with Russia and other countries will be declassified and used for prosecution if possible, his phony billionaire status will be destroyed as he is forced to claim bankruptcy again since he can’t pay the $1 billion that’s coming due…the scam of his life will be exploded just as his phony charity and Trump University were.

The end is nigh despite all the MSM BS about Trump being setup well for running in 2024. His mythos will be transformed into prison bars and bankruptcy and his time in office will be looked on with greater disgust as each day of the Biden presidency passes.

As for Pence, Barr, Pompeo and the rest of the traitorous GOP, they will be stained with the mark of the beast for the foreseeable future. Dems need to keep being driven to register and GOTV because they will represent a growing majority of Americans as the GOP faithful continue to shrink and grow more extreme in desperation. We just can’t let down our guard.

And my fingers are crossed tightly (and my donations are opened) for Georgia to elect the two Dems and give Dems control of The Senate. Then, with new Voting Rights passed and safeguards put into law to prevent any future president from being able to molest our democracy and humanity again, Repubs will have a high bar for ever holding power again until they become sane again…if ever.

Lastly, a massive focus from this day on needs to be the passage of the National Popular Vote bill in the several more states needed to activate it. Then, when states award their votes only to the candidate who wins the most votes in the nation, replacing our democracy with an autocracy by trying to manipulate the Electoral College becomes impossible.

And Dems have won the popular vote in 7 of the last 8 presidential elections. So that will make a massive difference in the power dynamics and I think, force the GOP to steer away from extremism.

But in the near term, let’s get states certifying Biden as President and electors officially putting him in the WH. Hopefully, for the last time an Electoral College is used in a presidential election.

One minute after leaving the meeting with trump, Michigan lawmakers said the certification of Biden will happen. Now they are trying it with 2 republicans lawmakers in Pennsylvania that will fail.

Yes, stupid Jr. finally got it.

It’s funny and pathetic now. Trump is insisting state Repubs commit crimes from which he can’t pardon them (since it would violate state law as well as federal) and they are just eating the cold Big Mac he serves them then heading out and publicly saying, “Nope, we’re not doing anything wrong except eating Big Macs.”

They are such cowards, they fear a backlash from Trump’s cultists or a mean tweet from him, for not coming to see him when ordered but they know they are being asked to publicly become criminals by a guy who has already lost.

More Repubs are timidly stepping out to say at least something that is contrary to Trump’s BS about a rigged election, the dam is breaking and Trump has no clue that all of this may instead made him a pariah.

So maybe these cultists might ask themselves, “Uh, maybe he wasn’t sent by God to be the Second Coming? When he’s a loser like this?”

The law in Michigan states that the winner of the popular vote gets the EC votes so the trumpers will lose. Ghouliani demanded $20,000 a day for his failed legal fantasies. Haha!

The county is 80% AA and brown voters so 2 repubs wanted to cancel their votes by not certifying their votes. No systemic racism?

This county just did a 180 and will certify the result. Trump’s happiness was very short as he lost yet again. The system is working.

It’s so pathetic and criminal election tampering that after they reversed themselves and certified the election, Trump called them and pushed them to insist that they called backsies and wanted to change their certification back to a no.

This is a straight-up crime. I saw some articles mentioning that Biden had become less prone to wanting to see Trump prosecuted for his crimes, after all of this, he should keep his word and allow his AG a free hand at prosecuting Trump.

However, the reality probably is that Trump or Pence will end up pardoning him for all crimes, along with dozens of those around him so it may not be viable to try and prosecute him with a SCOTUS tilted so far to the right and less likely to find his pardoning himself of a crime-in-progress unconstitutional.

Meanwhile, the NY AG is speaking out about dozens of charges she has waiting for Trump and his family.

Literally, I can hardly wait for Trump to be on trial and convicted!

AdLib

I agree with Weissmann 100% but I have a sinking feeling from Biden’s constant refrain about bringing the country together that he is not going to be so supportive of the AG going after Trump. I’m fine with that as long as Biden keeps his word and gives his AG free rein to prosecute crimes as he sees fit without interference.

Still, how will that all work out if Trump pardons everyone in his Admin and pardons himself or steps down for a day to have Pence pardon him? As I mentioned, the AG would have to take it to the SCOTUS to have his pardon declared unconstitutional and I don’t think that skewed court would agree, setting a precedent that a president is above the law.

Which is why it’s even more important that the NY AGs take Trump and his family down.

I do like Eric Swalwell’s concept of having a Trump Crimes Commission to investigate and uncover all crimes committed and even if Trump is pardoned, exposing his crimes and hopefully finding people he hasn’t pardoned to prosecute via a referral to the AG.

And if Trump is pardoned, it is an admission of guilt AND he can be forced to testify in any criminal case! And if he perjures himself then, there won’t be any pardon covering that and he can then be prosecuted for perjury over one of his crimes.

One thing I will be very vocal about, no forgive and forget over this monster by Biden and Dems. If we don’t want a smarter authoritarian to rise from the GOP and truly end our democracy, Trump, his family and all the crooks around him must be punished as a deterrent to prevent such madness from happening in the future.

BREAKING!

Mean little man trumpery just fired Christopher Krebs for on Twitter for his statement about 2020 being the safest election in history.

5 years of trump v. The truth.

The Georgia SofState said that there were witnesses in his office when Ms. Lindsey asked him to throw out legal ballots. There’s their voter fraud.

Lindsey’s tongue must be a weird shade of brownish orange by now.

“The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history,” said the statement. “Right now, across the country, election officials are reviewing and double checking the entire election process prior to finalizing the result … There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”

“While we know there are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation in the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections, and you should too,” continued the statement

So…will Trump pardon Lady G? If he does, it’s an admission of guilt and he can be forced to testify about everything he knows and emailed with Trump about trying to perform a coup.

And if he doesn’t, Graham is wide open for both state and federal prosecution for election tampering. If anyone was elected through fraud, it was Lady G. I would like to see him convicted and removed, replaced in a special election by Jamie Harrison!

Trump Sought Options for Attacking Iran to Stop Its Growing Nuclear Program

This isn’t over, Trump fired all the heads of the Defense Dept and replaced them with inexperienced toadies so he could be prepping for more than just reducing troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and more.

Trump is literally setting the country and the world on fire as he’s forced out of power while Repubs are too spineless to stand up to him. And he seems to be thrilled about COVID exploding and reaching 2000 dying per day.

Putting a sociopath in power and continuing to support him as he kills your neighbors and members of your family is maybe more insane than Trump is.

I noticed that BS about Dems needing to reach out to Trumpers evaporated as they cheered on his coup. Forget them, they deserve to be ignored and disdained.

Poor Trumpy, he just can’t catch a break. It’s all falling apart like his mind, soon, Repubs will be dunking on him as he nears his last day in office.

He thinks he can run in 2024? He’ll be falling apart mentally long before that. And physically, once he finally comes down off all the drugs he’s been pumping into himself post COVID infection, he should deteriorate very quickly.

I think the end of Trump will come with a whimper…his.

Kalima
Admin

The run in 2024 is a con and he will fleece anyone to make money. He’s addicted to speed, has worn diapers for years, can’t even walk down the stairs and is mentally incompetent.

I also don’t believe he had COVID. It was propaganda to let him boast about how strong he is after his so-called miraculous recovery. He is a fake everything.

AdLib
Admin

I agree, I think Trump’s 2024 “run” is about suckering his suckers to enrich himself but also to block other Repubs from running. He’ll be the toll bridge/kingmaker who demands his 350 pounds of flesh to “allow” someone else to run instead. And in the meantime, I think it may assuage his agony of losing by imagining he can come back and win it all back again in 4 years. But I don’t think he could bear risking losing again and not being in power, quickly dismissed again as a whiny loser.

The GOP is a sick, festering, diseased thing and it will only grow sicker in the next four years as Trump forces himself on it to soothe his failure. Trump has made the nearly hollow GOP become completely hollow, it stands for nothing now, like Trump, other than greed.

And I have to wonder, with Trump’s moron circus of followers, might there be less of them than other Americans after this COVID pandemic is over?

I read a nurse’s tweet about Trumpers who die angry in the now-filling-up hospitals, insisting they can’t have COVID while they’re dying of it, saying it has to be lung cancer or pneumonia, refusing to talk to their family members on Facetime before dying because they don’t believe they’re dying from COVID. How can these deranged cultists not end up being among the majority of fatalities when it’s all said and done?

Right now, the states with the worst infection rates are in states that went for Trump, IA, ND, SD, WY, MT, ID, LA, etc. That Sturgis motorcycle festival caused a massive spread in the Dakotas and that region. So, I do wonder if the anti-masker nuts won’t thin their own ranks before 2024.

Not that I root for people to die, just an observation about behavior.

What’s amusing is that Lady G, Ted Cruz, Fox News, etc. were using this as their high profile example of the BS cheating and fraud they are trying to insist went on.

Now their credibility and their cheating is widely exposed.

And payouts to people to deceive the public on behalf of Trump of around $130,000 should be counted as “one Stormy”.

I saw a poll showing 80% of the country agrees that Biden won. So only 20% of the country, the Trump MAGA cult it seems, buy into this plot.

After Arizona falls into Biden’s camp then, as long as no funny business takes place in the Georgia recount, the argument loses its roots. While I expect most of the MAGA cult to keep claiming the election was rigged, their relevance will shrink quickly.

Kalima

Just heard republican SofS saying there was no voter fraud in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin or Nevada.

The video trump posted on Twitter and called fraud, is actually legal votes being votes in CA on the 4th of Nov.

Also heard the state dept are not passing on congratulations to Biden from foreign leaders. How more childish can the gop get. A bunch of small, petty grifters. They will be written about in history books for their disgusting un-constitutional behaviour. May they lose the WH and the Senate for decades to come. They don’t know how to govern anyway.

AdLib

I can’t say I expected much more of Trump and his toadies, I didn’t imagine Trump conceding or his admin being cooperative with Biden and his Admin.

I didn’t expect Repubs in Congress or states to stand up to him, they never have.

Trump said months ago that if he didn’t win, the election was rigged. He never said he would support a peaceful transition, insisted he wouldn’t and hedged, “We’ll have to see.”

He is scum, he always has been scum, he always will be scum and hoping he won’t be is just a waste of valuable hope.

But he will be gone on Jan 20th. There is no way around it that makes any sense. AZ and GA will be declared soon and the size of Biden’s win will be even greater.

No way out for the cornered rat but he’ll bite and claw the whole time.

Kalima

Yes this behaviour was expected for their own gain but I worry about the reshuffle in agencies to put in his cronies could amount to a lot of intelligence about the Russian interference in 2016 and during the 2020 election being destroyed. I hope that the Mueller team put away the copies of the report in a safe place. There will be a lot of shredding and computer wiping before they finally get their incompetent arses out of there.

Also why would he decimate the D of Defence unless he’s planning something nefarious before he’s booted out. I don’t believe that the military would be willing to help him carry out a coup nor start a war with Iran. His reign of terror is over soon. Still, he has 70 days to promote more chaos. Not one word about the raging pandemic from any of them and his supporters believe he cares about them. How f-up is that?

AdLib
Admin

It’s very f’d up.

What makes the most sense to me is what you say, that Trump is doing this reshuffling to destroy data that would reveal his unknown crimes and his cronies will obey his refusal to provide a transition to Biden.

Plus, he wants to trash as much as he can, with his cronies’ help, to force Biden to have to rebuild what’s been destroyed instead of spending more time and energy on pursuing his goals.

If I were Biden, I’d create a whole new team dedicated to fixing the damage Trump has done and rooting out the nested Trumpers in positions to slow or sabotage Biden’s efforts.

That way, as one team is dedicated to rebuilding departments, Biden’s main team can be dedicated to moving forward.

Remember the secret server containing copies of his conversations with world leaders probably tampered with before it was stored?

The classified parts of the Mueller Report and the interference with Intelligence Reports. His plundering of what must be hundreds of millions of dollars to himself and family since he’s been in office. The grift continues.

I think I did hear Biden say that he intends to reverse trump’s awful policies on all of trump’s destruction of Obama’s policies.

The end is near and he should be tried and jailed. If he can’t pay his huge debt, seize his properties. Seeing them homeless on the streets would be an education these greedy bastards all deserve. Putin has no interest in this fool now.

AdLib

Yep, I bet corrupting or trashing that secret server is at the top of Trump’s to-do list but a number of people have seen that data and can be subpoenaed by the new AG to testify. I’m sure there are copies of Mueller’s data around, the full report can be unredacted by Biden and Biden can order a commission to be setup to both investigate Russia’s attacks on our elections and with the House, set up a commission to uncover all the crimes and thefts of money by Trump and his cronies.

Biden is going to want to look bipartisan, I don’t think he wants to look like he’s going after Trump so unsure how the commissions would work out. Eric Swalwell already recommended a Trump Crimes Commission.

The best scenario may be NY prosecuting, convicting, imprisoning and bankrupting Trump. Then the hatred of the MAGA cult will be focused on a state they can never win.

The crimes Trump, Ivanka, Jr. and Eric have committed in NY are pretty simple to prove, just using their tax returns and loan docs to prove fraud. And so much more to uncover. I hope NY invokes the RICO Act and takes down all of them including Kushner, Rudy, etc.

Kalima

Yes, prosecute and find them all guilty. Throw them in jail and let’s see how trump leads a “shadow government” or tv whine-fest from his jail cell.

Even Karl Rove has come out to tell trump to concede.

We’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg on Trump’s criminality. Andrew McCabe who Trump fired as FBI Director, says there are some big and damaging facts about Trump that the public hasn’t heard about yet.

Kalima

That’s why barr, trump and his cronies wouldn’t declassify the Mueller report. A den of criminals doing the bidding of a broke bully with power he never deserved for one second. He’s on his last con, cheating his supporters out of even more money to pay his debts.

A friend of his told told a reporter that he’s broke, hates the job, it’s boring, but loves the power. Is afraid of being arrested. Is afraid of being assassinated. 173,000 new cases today and he sits on his fat, wrinkled arse in his COVID infested hole thinking about himself. This is mass murder. Crimes against humanity. Genocide.

AdLib

Yep but we’re going to get all the info behind the Mueller Report soon after Biden is in, and the evidence will come out that Mueller saw and led him to want Trump charged for obstruction of justice and Russian collaboration. And so much more.

I think Trump’s paranoia is why he’s built all the walls and fences around the WH. He’s afraid that Antifa is coming for him to assasinate him. He’s cracking up and once all of the power, attention and trappings of the presidency are taken away from him, while prosecutions and lawsuits crash in on him, I think he’ll really lose it.

And I will sit back and smile.

If Trump gets pardoned by a last day switch with Pence then sells U.S. info, he could then be federally prosecuted for treason. And I think the Feds will be keeping a close eye on Trump once he’s out of office.

But so many other prosecutions are waiting for him right now. I am really looking forward to those. And Ivanka, Jr., Eric and Kushner getting prosecuted and imprisoned.

I share your dream fervently. It will heal souls around the world and be a slap in the face for far right populism that has already begun internationally.

He will also be investigated in Scotland over his failing golf courses financing. We know for a fact that Russia has put hundreds of millions in over the years, so that should be interesting.

Read that Javanka won’t be having the welcome expected when they return to NY and their kids had to leave their school because parents complained that the family didn’t follow the guidelines to protect others from the virus.

Their grift will be over soon except with the suckers who voted for him again.

Here’s to better days once the scumbags are gone.

AdLib

Yes, I think insanity will begin to recede once the contagious insanity of Trump is yanked from the national and international spotlight. I think Biden’s AG can do a lot to help too by aggressively going after white nationalist militias, police forces that are racist and violent and protecting voting rights. Once the “good police” are back on duty, meaning the Feds under a principled AG, this unbridled racist violence and hostility has to run and hide.

I think Scotland will uncover the Russian money laundering…I think all they have to do is expose that Trump’s golf course was not funded by legally verified funds and they can take it away from Trump. I know they want to. How sweet would that be?

And what happens with Trump Tower? Right now it has full time federal protection because he’s president, when that’s over, the protection ends. Protests in front of it will probably be standard and make residents want to sell. And with Trump out of power, all the wealthy in America and elsewhere will suddenly cancel their Mar-a-Lago memberships and patronizing of his failing hotels.

Then of course all the criminal cases and lawsuits.

Then Deutsche Bank and all the other creditors coming after Trump for over $1 billion,

And Ivanka and Jared are insane if they think they can re-enter NY society. They are pariahs and will remian so for the rest of their lives…but they will fit in with their peers at Rikers Island.

Ruling to destroy the ACA in the middle of a deadly pandemic would also destroy their credibility by labelling them as biased. Let’s hope they decide to do the right thing.

I would think Roberts is worried that his court will become a bad joke and lose all respect and legitimacy if the Moronic 5 sitting beside him turn the SCOTUS into witch trials.

Absolutely, killing the ACA now, in the worst of the pandemic would destroy every shred of respect or support of the SCOTUS for a majority of Americans and I can imagine it getting really ugly for them and the courthouse with fierce protests and hatred of them for being murderers.

No way Roberts wants that. I do think he’ll do all he can to make sure the ACA isn’t overturned. He’s the one who saved it the last two times.

Losing once wasn’t enough? Pathetic.

Scoop: Inside Trump’s legal warfare

Trump’s lawsuits, based on conspiracy theories only, are getting thrown out of court faster than rotten eggs…which some of them probably are.

I am a bit frustrated with AZ and GA for stringing out their full counts for so long, once they are called for Biden, the Trump denialism is blown up. He has no strategy to stop Biden from being president when he has 306 electoral votes. He may have a lame strategy to sue in PA but AZ and GA are Repub run states, the conspiracy theory doesn’t work in them (and PA has a Repub legislature which was in charge of the election rules so that’s a problem for Trump too).

Hope AZ and GA can declare by the end of the week, that should shut Trump down.

No funding for Biden’s transition, no access to NS briefings, barr hitting the sewer, and creepy pompous claiming a second term for the wannabe dicktator. It’s like a bad parody.

Do they all want to appear on the trump tv shit show?

12 court cases throw out and made them look like the idiots they really are.

Yes the world is watching and we are thoroughly disgusted.

Concede already trumpvirus, and bugger off.

Biden’s people have likely been putting these together for a while, they should drop a stack of them each day starting on Jan. 20th.

Each one will make Trump squirm as it erases him. Good.

Obstruction to boost the narcissistic ego will not win him this election. Jan, 20th, 2021, he’s out peacefully or dragged out kicking and screaming like the 5 year old he is. Biden should be ready with a SWAT team in case the coward barricade himself in.

I hope NY is ready to grab him.
