A lot of speculation that the delaying transition and firings are part of a cover up


I'm fully convinced now that the election lawsuits and Emily Murphy GSA block are an effort to delay transition so trump has time to fire everyone and hide his crimes before Biden gets read in. Donald will fail at this, too. #CoverUp

The party that Newt built has no leadership


The party that Newt built has no leadership. It is captive to the whims of whichever mob is loudest — an energy cultivated and stoked by right wing media and ideologue billionaires. No one has been in charge for years.

This is why they almost all play along with this madness.

Perhaps the defining moment of the end of the Republican caucus was when Boehner was like “screw this, I’m outta here, y’all have fun with these Freedom caucus yay-hoos, I’m gonna go swill wine and invest in cannabis” and no one — literally no one — wanted his job. No one.

It’s like being the bus driver of a school bus with no steering wheel or brakes: you’re responsible for the safety of the people in the bus, but you’re not in control of it at all, you can just beg them to sit down and tell them to stop throwing boogers at you & each other

Oh — and you aren’t actually going to a school where someone might learn something from actual books, but to some traveling carnival of oddities, where they look at the two-headed calves and other mutations and think SEE I KNEW ALL ALONG THIS TOTALLY IMPROBABLE THING IS REAL HA

And no one knows what is true, or who believed this nutso quackery first, or why they have become obsessed, barking out catchphrases and talking points until 50-year-old men in Oklahoma are reflexively telling you that the two-headed calf is 100% proof that democrats are monsters

They don’t know who started the game of telephone, or what the original message was.

They just think that Rush deserves his medal because they believe the power to unleash anger & fear is the most important manifestation of their chaos god view of “democracy” & how to keep power

How to keep power while everything burns

Oh well, they say. I’m fine. 401k is great. We all have to look out for #1. Let’s watch the chaos god drumline march thru the nation from this balcony here. Let’s post a selfie at the parade so the unruly mob thinks we don’t disdain them

This is where this madness was heading all along.

They’re all still playing along, not understanding or caring about what the stakes are, because they will be fine no matter what, and who cares about the rest of us.



Moments ago on
... Sen.
reveals what some of his Republican colleagues have said to him in private -- "please convey my well wishes to the President-Elect, but I can't say that publicly yet."

Trump filed a new federal lawsuit


Trump campaign says it has filed a federal lawsuit that asks to stop Pennsylvania from certifying the results of the general election. Not seeing it in PACER yet tho. https://cdn.donaldjtrump.com/public-files/press_assets/2020-11-09-complaint-as-filed.pdf


It's all a big fundraising scam


It's all a big fundraising scam!!!

They're gonna try and retire general election campaign debt and build their war chests by rallying behind a delusional outgoing president when they know Biden will be President on 01/20/21.

Our campaign finance system allows/incentivizes this!

Fireworks in London, church bells in Paris as Biden win celebrated abroad

In countries across the globe, people reported fireworks, cheering and the sound of church bells ringing after President-elect Joe Biden was named the winner of the 2020 presidential election.

Locals in the United Kingdom, where many had leftover fireworks from Guy Fawkes Night this week, reported fireworks going off in London. There were videos of church bells ringing in Paris and fireworks in Edinburgh, Scotland, and reports of celebrations in Germany.







Looking forward to reading profiles of Biden voters in large urban areas


Looking forward to reading profiles of Biden voters in large urban areas and hearing discussions for the next four years about how Republicans can change their messaging to reach those Biden voters after performing so poorly with them in this election.

From Malcolm Turnbull , ex-Prime Minister of Australia


I feel like we finally have a ray of hope, even here. - from Poland ( Views from the world)


the american dream isn’t an american dream, it’s a human ideal we’ve mishandled terribly at times and shed blood for at others and outright lied about sometimes and shared with varying degrees of sincerity but ultimately most of us have tried to work towards it


we are running on old credit we don’t have the liquidity to cover anymore but we still have a short grace period where we can work ourselves out of it

For the last 4 years Trump bullied and humiliated his staff


For the last 4 years, Trump bullied and humiliated his staff in meetings. Now that he’s lost, they’re turning on him. “Why put up with it anymore?” one outside WH adviser said.

Why put up with it in the first place? I don't feel sorry for these people.


There was a lot of dirt on Donald Trump before he lost, but it’s about to become an avalanche.

His enablers and protectors will try to distance themselves from Trump in the coming weeks and months. Don’t let them.

This is the best picture taken when Biden's Presidency was announced


His expression says it all.
