Presidential Election Of 2020

Donald Trump Suffers Stunning Series Of Legal Losses

Former President Donald Trump has suffered a series of legal losses this past week, including:

New York State Attorney General Letitia James is accusing him and his three older children (Donald Trump, Jr., Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump), of massive fraud, and is suing for a $250 million fine, wishing to deny the Trump family any ability to conduct business in New York State for the next five years, and giving evidence gathered to federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York.

A three judge Circuit Court panel, with two Trump appointees, is allowing the Justice Department to pursue action on classified documents taken by Trump to Mar A Lago, to judge whether national security has been endangered.

A Georgia prosecutor is moving toward action on the illegal interference promoted by Trump to try to change the Georgia Presidential election results in the 2020 Presidential election.

Additionally, the January 6 House Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 Insurrection at the US Capitol will be having another public hearing and presentation in the coming week.

The pressures being brought against Donald Trump, his children, and his business activities are all adding to the burden on the former President, easily the most corrupt in American history!

Unveiling Of Barack And Michelle Obama Portraits At Biden White House A Celebration!

In the midst of difficult and stressful times in America, yesterday was a glorious day of celebration as Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama returned to the White House to unveil their official portraits that will be added to the White House Art Collection, and rejoice with Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden!

The portraits of both the President, by artist Robert McCurdy, and the First Lady, by artist Sharon Sprung, are gorgeous art, and it was an opportunity for the Obamas and Bidens to get together and celebrate the accomplishments of both Obama and Joe Biden in the Presidency!

Usually, the portraits of a President are unveiled in the administration of his successor, but that was not possible with Donald Trump, who constantly savaged the Obamas, and promoted the theory that Obama was not born in the United States, the so called “Birther” theory!

One has to wonder if it will ever happen that there will be unveiling of portraits of Donald Trump and Melania Trump in the White House art collection, but if so, it will not be during the Joe Biden Presidency, as Trump still refuses to accept that Joe Biden was legitimately elected President in 2020!

Labor Day Should Remind Us Of Significance Of Labor Unions In American History!

Monday is Labor Day, a celebration of the contributions and sacrifices of generations of workers who struggled to honor the efforts of working people, who had to combat the power of corporations and commit themselves to reform and humane treatment.

The first national holiday came about in the Presidency of Grover Cleveland in 1894, just as we had the Pullman Strike, which led to the imprisonment of Socialist Eugene Debs, but led to the growing success of organized labor over the next decades.

The ultimate triumph of organized labor came in the New Deal of Franklin D. Roosevelt, and while much of the nation, particularly the Southern states, worked against unionization, there was expansion of labor union membership nationally.

Sadly, the Presidency of Ronald Reagan saw labor union growth come to a halt, and has only recently started to increase once again.

But membership in labor unions is only in the midteens in number right now, when it once was about a third to 40 percent.

President Joe Biden, however, is a champion of organized labor, and will speak on Labor Day tomorrow in Pittsburgh, to commemorate labor, and call for the further expansion of unions for workers!

In the Presidential Election of 2020, Biden gained the backing of 56 percent of union households, crucial to his victories in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania in particular!

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer: Heroine, And Way Ahead Of Extremist Opponent Tudor Dixon In Polls!

Michigan’s Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer is up for reelection this fall, against a “MAGA” Republican extremist, Tudor Dixon.

This lunatic woman is scary, as she has no exceptions for rape or incest or life of the mother regarding abortion.

Being an Election Denier on the Presidential Election of 2020 makes her extremely dangerous, were she to be elected!

Fortunately, Whitmer is way ahead of Dixon in public opinion polls!

Whitmer is a true heroine, standing up to the responsibility of protecting Michigan residents from COVID 19, and being subjected to a threatened hostage seizure and possible assassination danger.

Two of those perpetrators of a kidnap plot have been convicted and will have long prison sentences.

Gretchen Whitmer will be seen in history as a woman of courage, principles, and doing the necessary job of protecting her constituents, even if they are not smart enough to understand science and health!

If she wins reelection, she is a potential choice for President, and will have many intelligent, ethical, moral people who would support her.

In any case, let us all wish for her health and safety, and that she can succeed in putting Tudor Dixon into the trash heap of history!

At Least 11 “Election Deniers” Running For Crucial Secretary Of State Position In States!

It is shocking to realize that there are at least ELEVEN “Election Deniers” running as Republicans for the crucial Secretary of State position in various states.

The Secretary of State in states has control of the election machinery, and can influence the issue of the Electoral Vote Count for President in 2024!

These eleven Election Deniers have questioned, rejected, or tried to overturn the results of the Presidential Election of 2020, and have not ever accepted that the issue is dormant at this point nearly two years later!

“Swing” states Arizona, Michigan and Nevada are threatened if the Republican candidates win the office.

Alabama, Indiana and Wyoming, strongly Republican states, have the likelihood of their “Election Deniers” winning office.

Five “liberal” states—Minnesota, Connecticut, New Mexico, Vermont, and Massachusetts—have less likelihood of their “Election Deniers” being elected.

This is an alarming situation, that undermines American democracy, the Constitution, and rule of law!

Looney Republican Women Running For Governor: Kari Lake And Tudor Dixon

The Republican Party has had looney women run for Congress and become an embarrassment, including, most recently, Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boerbert of Colorado. But they have done little harm, other than to cause outrage, as they are a small element in the House of Representatives, who just make a lot of noise!

But now, we have looney women nominated for the Governorship of two states that were influential in the Presidential Election of 2020!

Arizona has Kari Lake as its nominee for Governor, and Michigan has Tudor Dixon as its nominee for Governor, and both are believers in the “Big Lie” that Donald Trump won the Presidential Election of 2020, and are unwilling to acknowledge that Joe Biden is the rightful winner of the Presidency.

Both Lake and Dixon make it clear they will do everything possible to deny the Democrats the electoral votes of their states in 2024, even if the Democratic Presidential nominee wins the popular votes in their states.

So both Lake and Dixon are deniers of reality, and are a threat to democracy’s continuation in their states!

Interestingly, both states will have a Democratic woman running against these looney Republican women.

Arizona will have Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who insured despite threats, that Arizona had legitimately voted for Joe Biden in 2020, and is now the Democratic nominee for the Governorship.

And Michigan has the very courageous Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who was threatened by extremists in the state in the past few years, but stood tall and principled, and is running for a second term as Governor.

It is urgent that Arizona and Michigan elect these two competent, decent women over the lunatic and dangerous women that the Republican Party has foisted on the people of these states!

Right Wing Anti Democracy Extremists: CPAC Convention This Weekend In Dallas, Texas

CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) has been having annual conferences since 1974, and it brings together famous conservative political activists.

However, CPAC has become much more extremist right wing in recent years, and is very different in its advocacy now as compared to a half century ago.

It has become an authoritarian, Fascist oriented party, with loyalty to Donald Trump and the “Big Lie”, that he won the Presidential Election of 2020, not Joe Biden.

And most Republicans continue to support Donald Trump.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, a full blown Fascist with anti immigrant, white supremcaist, homophobic, and misogynistic policies, was the big “hero” of the first day of the four day conference that began on Thursday.

Among those who will be speaking at CPAC besides Donald Trump are, mostly alphabetically, the following 24 individuals:

Fox News Host Sean Hannity
Podcast Host Glenn Beck
Texas Senator Ted Cruz
Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan
Texas Governor Greg Abbott
Former White House Stragegist Steve Bannon
Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs
Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert
Former HUD Secretary Ben Carson
Michigan Gubernatorial Nominee Tudor Dixon
Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz
Former White House Doctor and Texas Congressman Ronny Jackson
Arizona Gubernatorial Nominee Kari Lake
“MY Pillow” CEO Mike Lindell
Former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential Nominee Sarah Palin
Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton
Pennsylvania Congressman Scott Perry
Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves
CPAC Chairman Matt Schlapp
Florida Senator Rick Scott
Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt
Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene
Ohio Senate nominee J D Vance

Today’s Primaries Are Crucial For The Future

Five states are holding primaries today, and they are crucial for the future.

In Kansas, those who vote can insure the continuation of abortion rights, or make Kansas a backward, oppressive state.

In Missouri, we could end up having a former governor, Eric Greitens, accused of sexual and physical abuse of others, including his former wife and children, become the Republican nominee for the US Senate!

There are primaries for three Republican House members who voted to impeach Donald Trump, one in Michigan, and two in Washington state.

And Arizona looks as if it is on the way to nomination of Republicans who are promoters of the “Big Lie”, that Donald Trump won the Presidential Election of 2020, not President Joe Biden.

This is a scary, troubling time, and could portend greater grief and suffering in the future!

New Third Party Movement, “Forward”, Formed By Andrew Yang, Christine Todd Whitman, David Jolly!

A new third party movement, known as “Forward”, has been formed by former Democratic Presidential and New York City Mayoral contender Andrew Yang; former Republican New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman, who headed the Environmental Protection Agency under George W. Bush; and former Republican one term Congressman David Jolly of Florida, now a political commentator on MSNBC.

Already, there is strong criticism that such a movement will hurt the Democrats more than the Republicans, at a time when Donald Trump and the extreme right wing that controls the Republican Party is a clear and present danger to American democracy.

One has to wonder if any substantial political leaders will join the “Forward” party, as right now, it comes across that its leadership is not very impressive nor “heavy weight” in any sense!

Rupert Murdoch’s New York Post And Wall Street Journal Turn Against Trump, But What About Fox News Channel?

Australian Mogul Rupert Murdoch, the infamous figure who owns the NY Post, Wall Street Journal, and Fox News Channel, has had a change of heart regarding Donald Trump, at least in regards to the first two named media sources.

It has taken a year and a half since the January 6, 2021 US Capitol Insurrection for Murdoch and his publications to condemn Donald Trump for the criminal actions that took place, in denial of zero evidence of an election that was a clearcut win for Joe Biden.

But one wonders: what about Fox News Channel, and its major hosts, including Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and others?

Will they continue to be in strong support of Donald Trump as time moves on?

It will be interesting if there is a backing away of support, but it would not be surprising if contradictions would occur, as Rupert Murdoch is a man of no decency or principle or conscience!
