Things will not settle

until tRump is removed or Biden becomes president - whichever comes first.

If congressional leadership continues to pussyfoot when dealing with tRump he will continue to wield the upper hand. He may face some strength on Saturday, January 9 and Wednesday January 13. The latter may be the middle date of a 5 day period when he is taken down.

Breaking News!!! Bob Kornacki (Name Joke)

In the one race it looks like Rethugs might win in GA Perdue's chart looks like a loser. I think if he wins an investigation will find cheating was the reason.

Reason for my thinking - his natal and progressed Saturns and Neptune/Pluto midpoints all being opposed by transiting Neptune. If he does not win, it may be the end of his political career.

His natal and progressed positions:

N Saturn 17044'
P Saturn 16908'

N Neptune/Pluto midpoint 16943'
P Neptune/Pluto midpoint 16907'


Transit Neptune at noon January 6 will be at 34956', opposite point 16956'.

Guesswork (my attempt at woo-woo)

to go along with transits tRump is having next week. Practically every day very intense, the 12th perhaps most crucial.

An attempt to fly to Cuba. Breaking a flight plan to Miami, less than an hour later could be in Cuban airspace. All set up for tRump by others within his most inner circle.

https://www.distancefromto.net/distance-from-havana-cu-to-miami-us

"The air travel (bird fly) shortest distance between Havana and Miami is 367 km= 228 miles.

If you travel with an airplane (which has average speed of 560 miles) from Havana to Miami, It takes 0.41 hours to arrive."

Is he, as president, allowed to suspend his Secret Service detail and would he be allowed to board a plane other than Air Force 1? Could he travel to an airport without his detail?

Election Loser's Percentages

Data gathered from Dave Leips site.

Only 4 times since the American Civil War has the popular vote loser been elected president (1876, 1888, 2000, 2016).

In 27 of the the 41 elections listed below the loser has garnered more than 40% of the popular vote. That is, in 65.9% or almost in 2 out of 3 elections the loser had almost 1/2 of the voting public in his or her favor.

Only Democratic and Republican party's percentages are shown. Election loser's percentage of the popular vote is in bold. xx indicates losers of the popular vote who were still elected.
