So the former Republican Governors of Ohio and Pennsylvania and the GOP former Lt. Governor ...

... of Indiana and the widow of John McCain have all come out for Biden?

Gov. Ridge even used the "d-word" deplorable. Remember when Hillary used that word and
all the faux outrage?

"It’s deplorable, yet utterly consistent with past reprehensible behavior."

Republicans for Biden*. Even in Oklahoma people have had it with Trump.

Two former GOP congressmen, Charles Djou of Hawaii and Mickey Edwards of Oklahoma, announced their support for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in a Roll Call opinion article.

Djou and Edwards are part of "Republicans and Independents for Biden," a group of nearly 100 former GOP lawmakers who are supporting the former vice president.

The pair blasted President Donald Trump as "an ill-formed man who lacks basic self-control and shows no semblance of inner character."

I really like college football but I feel like I am watching super spreader events.

This is madness. Trump really has fucked so many things that were part of our everyday
life in America it is staggering. Weddings, funerals, BBQs, going out to eat, God only knows
how many restaurants have gone belly up and or will go belly up, > 200,000 people are dead
who were alive on Jan. 1, 2020, concerts, sporting events, neighborhood picnics, travel, airplane
travel, businesses, jobs, dating, my fall white water rafting on the Gualey River in W.V., visiting
people in their homes, meat packing plants, health care, church services, farms and farm labor, and ...

Trump should lose every state and by double digits too. Don't like wearing that mask? Thank Donald
Trump.

Background on Luzerne County, PA where they "found" the discarded Trump ballots

https://www.timesleader.com/news/697062/wilkes-barre-businessman-yenason-mentioned-in-dems-russia-report-speaks-out

Luzerne County, PA has voted blue in every Presidential election since 1988 but in 2016 it flipped and voted
red and it hosted Alexander Torshin and Maria Butina and in 2018 it went back to being blue.

In a very republican, affluent, mostly white, educated, Columbus OH suburban neighborhood of ...

... Upper Arlington I have been seeing tons of signs that have just this one word:

ENOUGH

No guarantees but they are nice to see.


? What is the name of the reporter who asked Trump the question about a peaceful transition?

And Trump answered that he couldn't promise that and besides the ballots should not be counted.

I can't sleep. Good God in Butter I want Trump gone. There is no such thing as unsolicited ballots

President Obama's shirt is untucked but he is still looking CRISP …. look at the perfectly rolled up cuffs, not wrinkle on the shirt, some of the the vertical lines match his jeans, a hot wife/girlfriend next to him, and rocking the grey hair like he just don’t care.


Little wonder why Trump hates President Obama so much because he is everything that he will never be in as far as having class, style, cool, and smarts. He has a Paul Newman quality about him.

I bet you that Trump goes bat shit every time he hears the 2 words, President Obama.

Johnson & Johnson Begins Large Trial of Its One-Shot Vaccine

Source: NY Times

Although they are a couple of months behind the other so-called Phase 3 trials in the United States, Johnson & Johnson’s trials will be the largest, with plans to enroll 60,000 participants. And the experimental vaccine may have considerable advantages over some of its competitors, experts said. It does not need to be stored in subzero temperatures, and it may require just one dose instead of two.

“It would be fabulous if we had something at a single dose,” said Dr. Judith Feinberg, the vice chairwoman for research in medicine at West Virginia University, who was not involved in the study.

Johnson & Johnson’s experimental vaccine uses an adenovirus to carry a gene from the coronavirus into human cells. The cell then produces coronavirus proteins, but not the coronavirus itself. These proteins can potentially prime the immune system to fight off a later infection by the virus.

The company is planning to recruit up to 60,000 people over the age of 18 for its Phase 3 trial in the United States, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and South Africa.

Important point: They will not be done with JUST THE TESTING of the vaccine until 2021 so once agin Trump is
lying about a vaccine be ready by October or November.

"The trial started on Monday. At a news conference on Tuesday, Dr. Paul Stoffels, chief scientific officer of Johnson & Johnson, said the company might be able to determine by the end of the year if the vaccine is safe and effective."


I hope it works.

Do you want to crush Trump? This needs to go viral. Cracks form in Trump's Cuban-American base.


I was born in Cuba under Castro, so I know what a dictator looks like. Donald Trump is on his way, and we have to stop him.

Nací en Cuba bajo Castro, así que sé cómo es un dictador. Donald Trump está en camino y tenemos que detenerlo

This should be playing on TV/internet/radio and printed in Spanish language newspapers all over Miami and in Texas and in South Carolina (12% hispanic) and in New York and in ….


'We're not gonna be manipulated.' Cracks form in Trump's Cuban-American base

"From the passenger seat of a Mercedes-Benz idling in the heart of America’s Cuban exile community, George Marrero explained Saturday why he would not vote again for President Donald Trump.

“This country has been abused for the last four years,” the retired Coral Gables police officer said while waiting for the start of a Cubanos con Biden caravan in the majority-Cuban city of Hialeah. “[Democratic presidential nominee] Joe Biden is going to bring back — like he’s said — the soul of America. It’s been lost.”

Amid evidence that Trump has significantly expanded his support among Miami-Dade’s traditionally conservative Cuban exile community, a counter-movement is afoot to show that there are thousands of Cuban-Americans in Florida who believe the president does not have their best interests at heart....

“I used to be middle class. Now I’m down at the bottom,” she said. “I was born in Cuba under Castro, so I know what a dictator looks like. Donald Trump is on his way, and we have to stop him.“

Thanx to DUer mia for posting this yesterday

Ohio's Rob Portman is a no good shit. His hypocrisy knows no bounds.

https://twitter.com/senrobportman/status/1307499106445725696

Now he wants to fulfill his role as a U.S. Senator? He refused to even meet with Merrick Garland
let alone allow him to have a hearing or give him a vote as is the law under the Constitution.

USA Today: 4 senators Murkowski, Romney, Collins and Grassley do not support Court Nominations

As near as I can tell this is still just an internet story.

The claim: Four senators — Murkowski, Romney, Collins and Grassley — do not support a Supreme Court nomination vote before January

Following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, President Donald Trump said he would move “without delay” to nominate a successor.

While four GOP senators would need to join Democrats to stop aconfirmation , a viral Facebook posts claims that has already happened.

“4 republican senators now on board..no vote until January on SC,” reads a Sept. 18 Facebook post that has been shared over 1,000 times. “Murkowski, Romney, Collins, Grassley.”
