    Giving Tuesday is overwhelming me with great and deserving options but right now I’m donating weekly to Fair Fight and each of the GA Senate runoff campaigns. We put The Obama Foundation in our will. Congrats, Alycee!

      I know; it can get overwhelming but I usually give half to local organizations and another half to a national organization that impacts my local area.

    “The Supreme Court heard President Donald Trump’s plan to exclude undocumented immigrants from the census figures that are used to calculate each state’s representation in Congress.”
    NY Attorney General Letishia James to Reid:
    “More anti-immigrant rhetoric by a president who seeks to devalue, diminish, and obstruct the rule of law.
    But the Constitution and the Census are clear that individuals should be counted.”

    “Trump’s Disgraceful Endgame”
    (National Review)
    “Trump’s most reprehensible tactic has been to attempt, somewhat shamefacedly,
    to get local Republican officials to block the certification of votes and state legislatures to appoint Trump electors in clear violation of the public will. This has gone nowhere, thanks to the honesty and sense of duty of most of the Republicans involved, but it’s a profoundly undemocratic move that we hope no losing presidential candidate
    ever even thinks of again.”

    “With two months left of the Trump administration, career E.P.A. employees find themselves where they began,
    in a bureaucratic battle with the agency’s political leaders. But now, with the Biden administration on the horizon, they are emboldened to stymie Mr. Trump’s goals and to do so more openly.”

    “Fired cybersecurity chief hints at legal action after Trump campaign lawyer said he should be shot”

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2020-election/fired-cybersecurity-chief-hints-legal-action-after-trump-campaign-lawyer-n1249505?cid=eml_nbn_20201201

    WASHINGTON — Christopher Krebs, who was recently fired by President Donald Trump as the head of the federal government’s election cybersecurity efforts, suggested Tuesday that he might take legal action against one of Trump’s lawyers who said that Krebs should be shot.

    In an interview on NBC’s “TODAY” show, host Savannah Guthrie asked Krebs how concerned he is about the comments made by Trump campaign lawyer Joe DiGenova in an interview Monday in which he said that Krebs “is a class A moron. He should be drawn and quartered. Taken out at dawn and shot.”

    “It’s certainly more dangerous language, more dangerous behavior,” Krebs responded.

    Asked if there may be legal action taken as a result of those comments, Krebs said his team is looking at their “available opportunities.”

    How broad are these “pre-emptive” pardons?!?!?!? Does that mean they are pardoned for ANY crime they may have already committed and ANY crime they may commit in the future? How can you even be pardoned for something you haven’t even been charged with or indicted for?

    “The Trump administration has made extensive use of the Vacancies Act despite facing a friendly Senate.
    Further, it has regularly violated the Act, installing officials in an illegal manner.

    In contrast, Joe Biden, despite having won a sizable majority, (may) face an uncooperative Senate majority representing a minority of voters.

    If properly followed, the Vacancies Act provides a legal, and well-practiced, means to ensure that a President can keep the government working in the event of lengthy vacancies.”

    Until last weekend, the Loeffler campaign had wisely steered clear of direct attacks on Ebenezer itself. As a cultural touchstone, the storied church once led by King and his father has become — as Loeffler noted — a sacred place.

    But then U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, a vanquished Republican rival now campaigning at Loeffler’s side, said this about Warnock on Saturday: “There is no such thing as a pro-choice pastor. What you have is a lie from the bed of Hell. It is time to send it back to Ebenezer Baptist Church.”

    I have been unable to decide which is more disturbing — referring to an African American man as an “it,” or marking Ebenezer and its congregation as a den of satanic influence. But it is hard to walk either back — and with her silence, Loeffler has acquiesced to both.

    • December 2, 2020 at 9:23 am

      Raphael Warnock is now being painted as a radical socialist who would lead the nation to ruin. But he once served, at Isakson’s invitation, as chaplain of the day in the U.S. Senate. Warnock was also Isakson’s guest at the State of the Union address by President Barack Obama in 2012.

      Loeffler & Co. are working from a specific template — the Republican attempt in 2008 to stitch Obama, then a Democratic presidential candidate, to Jeremiah Wright, the fiery pastor of the Chicago church the Obamas attended.

    If Trump spells out the specific crimes that he and his family committed in the preemptive pardons, they’ll all be confessing to those crimes by accepting the pardon. It’ll be a field day for New York State, where pardons don’t apply to state charges.

    It’ll also be a field day for those who have been injured by the Trump family crime spree and want to pursue civil litigation.

    Preemptive pardons are legally flimsy and could get thrown out in court. If Trump tries preemptively pardoning himself and his family without spelling out the crimes involved, it’ll make the pardons even more flimsy and thus more likely to get thrown out in court.

    To their surprise, a meeting hasn’t yet happened. “But for the black community support for him, he would not be in office.”

    =====

    For some, it doesn’t seem to matter that Biden appoints Black, Latinx, Hispanic, Asian, Native Americans, Women, LGBTQIA, in his cabinet. There are some that want to *specify* who the appointment should be. Otherwise, it doesn’t count. [SMH]
