"Joe Biden — a former two-term vice president under Barack Obama and 36-year Senate veteran — will be the 46th president of the United States. His running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris, will become the first woman, first African American, and first Indian American to serve as vice president."

As happy as I am to have a new president, It pains me to think that the U.S. barely had enough sense to vote a con man out of office!!!

Nooooo!

I guess they will try a TV personality for the second time.

"Look, we have almost 48 percent of this country that's voted for a statist, authoritarian movement with fascistic markers that's hostile to American democracy, to the rule of law — that venerates an individual, that's a cult of personality," Schmidt said. "I think that Tucker Carlson is the frontrunner for the Republican nomination in 2024."

Schmidt also suggested that Republican candidates "will kowtow to the conspiracy" that Trump "was stabbed in the back by unseen malicious forces of the deep state, that the election was stolen, that it's illegitimate forever."

He continued, "More than a majority of the Republican party will believe this was an illegitimate election because they have been poisoned by the [Rupert] Murdoch operation, by OAN, by Sinclair, by the toxic sludge of sewage and crap and disinformation and lies that flows on Facebook into the screens of the American people."

I know that waiting for a winner to be declared is agonizing torture, like a long slide down a rusty razor, but imagine what sort of torture Donald Trump must be going through at the moment.

So stupid it's hard to believe, almost sounds like a joke.
Trump announced that Rudy would hold a press conference at a at the Four Seasons that turned out to be the Four Seasons Total Landscaping Company. Next door to a crematorium and an adult bookstore.
What a fine way to finish this shitshow of a presidential term.

Today, Trump fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper (by announcing the firing on Twitter), and replaced him with a loyalist, Christopher C. Miller, who will be “acting” only. Trump also selected a loyalist and Republican political operative, Michael Ellis, to become the general counsel at the National Security Agency, our top spy agency, over the wishes of intelligence officials. Ellis was the chief counsel to Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA), a staunch Trump loyalist. Trump is also reportedly considering firing FBI director Christopher Wray and CIA director Gina Haspel. Last week, he quietly fired the leaders of the agencies that oversee our nuclear weapons, international aid, and electricity and natural gas regulation, although the last of those officials was moved to a different spot in the administration.

In other words, Trump is cleaning out the few national security leaders who were not complete lackeys and replacing them with people who are. It’s funny timing for such a shake-up, especially one that will destabilize the country, making us more vulnerable.

I'm just sort of curious: Where was all of this righteous indignation over Trump as recently as 2008 when he was just another limousine liberal in New York supporting Hillary Clinton, both vocally and financially, over Obama? They were so closely tied together as Democrats that Trump was invited, and attended, Chelsea Clinton's wedding along with, as it turns out, Harvey Weinstein and Jeffrey Epstein. Which I guess tells you all you need to know about the Clintons.

Putin's been ham-stringing the Germans and whoever has what it takes to stop Russia from reclaiming the good ol' USSR. Vlad doesn't give a rat's ass about us as long as we stay out of his way.

- #1 Trump wasn't President of the United States in 2008, and he was basically that "limosine liberal" clown described above who basically supported anything other people wanted to hear to gain influence (which really hasn't changed)
- #2 Epstein and Weinstein were on few peoples' radars at that time. Epstein had some investigations but they weren't really public. Weinstein especially wasn't on peoples' radars until 2017.
- #3 Not a fan of the Clintons, but they're not super relevant at this point?

Meanwhile, the story that broke last night about Senator Lindsey Graham’s interference in the recount of ballots in Georgia got more detailed. Yesterday, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said that Graham (R-SC) had asked him if it were possible to throw out all mail-in ballots from counties with large numbers of mismatched signatures, a request Raffensperger found shocking. Graham admitted the call but denied Raffensperger’s characterization of it. Now it turns out there was someone else on the call, who confirmed the conversation.

Graham told reporters that he had also spoken with the secretaries of state in Nevada and Arizona, only to have Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs contradict the story on Twitter, saying she had not spoken with him, and Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske also deny that he had contacted her. Then he said he had spoken with the Arizona Governor, Doug Ducey, but couldn’t recall to whom he had spoken in Nevada. This whole story begs the question: why was Graham, who is a senator from South Carolina, grilling the Georgia secretary of state about an election recount in Georgia?

Trump’s attempt to steal this election is a fundamental attack on our democracy.

It is prompted in part, perhaps, by the fact that, as soon as he leaves office, Trump can no longer claim protection from indictments. Tonight the New York Times noted that two different investigations by the state of New York into Trump and his businesses have expanded to include tax write-offs for about $26 million in consulting fees, some of which appears to have gone to Ivanka Trump. She lashed out on Twitter, calling the investigation “harassment pure and simple… motivated by politics, publicity and rage.”
