    Jon Ossoff to Joy Reid:
    “”David Perdue is like the cartoon version of a corrupt oligarch, profiting from tragedy while opposing help for ordinary people. This is a guy who lives on a private island, hasn’t held a single town hall meeting in 6 years,
    openly sells meetings to lobbyists for corporate pac checks, votes to throw people off their healthcare, opposed even the first round of $1200 stimulus checks, and he treats his Senate office like it’s his e-trade account, sitting on the Banking Committee trading banking stocks, buying up shares in the defense contractor right before the Committee he controls sends taxpayer dollars to it – then cashing out at a profit, buying stock in manufacturers of vaccines and medical equipment while he’s dumping his casino shares, getting classified briefings on COVID-19 and telling the rest of us it’s no deadlier than the flu. All the while opposing help for regular people. He has GOT to go. And how directly are we taking it on? Absolutely directly. The people of Georgia need to know that David Perdue is a crook. And we’re making sure that they know it.”

      Re-imagining, reforming, re-allocating funds for police…are all understandable terms.
      But of course the term “defund” is used by the right to derail the issue. So often the police are hurting the people who pay their salaries. So let’s get the right people to do the right job = Counsellors for troubled people not guns. Police officers are not trained for that, so move the cash around. Let’s move the MEDIA on from the inadequate word defund.

    • December 6, 2020 at 4:59 pm

      On The Obama Foundation You Tube channel i found these zoom presentations about re-imagining policing…that brought together different voices…fascinating…here is one..

      • December 6, 2020 at 6:24 pm

        thanks for this Sheila. And PBO, Joe and team did literally tons of work on this issue when he was in office.

        • December 7, 2020 at 8:16 am

          The reason why i bring this up now…is that when PBO said what he said…he was speaking from a position of knowledge…whereas the squad was ,,,im not even sure what they were trying to say…but even if activists on the ground were saying Defund the Police…there was work already being done about “ReImagining Policing”…it is much more than a slogan…i have not watched all of the videos but The Obama Foundation along with MyBrother’s Keeper are engaging with activists and others to develop a path forward…

    Reverend Raphael Warnock and Loeffler will debate today at 7pm.

    “Loeffler and Warnock face off Sunday in a debate sponsored by the Atlanta Press Club. Although Warnock has sought additional debates, none have been scheduled yet, meaning this could be the only head-to-head debate between the two candidates.”

    Perdue has declined to meet with Ossoff.
    Jon Ossoff will have a solo platform today at 5pm.

      Vile and disgraceful seems aptly enough a description. Yup. The fact that he somehow relishes ppl dying from COVID or by denying folks assistance… goes to show what a scum he is. I don’t know why he is obsessed with judicial appointments.

      Maybe he was bullied as a kid and feels the need for revenge. Normal human beings dont gloat about being a grim reaper.

      Unfortunately, that last line does not seem to discourage the continued court challenges.

      Since most of these people’s professional qualifications are questionable, one way to get them out is to do background checks.

      If they lied on their applications for these jobs, they will be out of employment due to federal law.

    “I would like to make the actions of those fans who do boo the taking of the knee completely irrelevant.”

    Colchester United chairman Robbie Cowling has taken a stance after a minority of the 1,000 fans in attendance booed when players took the knee before Saturday’s home win against Grimsby Town.

    In a powerful and heartfelt statement

    Cowling explained why players take the knee for racial inequality, encouraged supporters to applaud the gesture and says fans who boo are “not welcome” at the club.

    He has offered to give refunds to season ticket holders who feel they cannot attend games because of their feelings about the gesture.

    “It would be very disappointing if anyone does decide to boo again,” he said.

    /

    “It is undeniable that black and other ethnic minority people are still the victims of racism, and the black footballers and staff at Colchester United feel that they are in a position of privilege that has been fought for through the blood and sweat of their ancestors.

    “A position that in 2020 the average black person is still not afforded.

    “Those taking the knee, and supporting the taking of the knee, not only shows their willingness to support the drive to eradicate racial oppression but force it to be a talking point even when it’s uncomfortable.

    “Undeniably, taking the knee is a fundamental catalyst in pushing the conversation, and thus the necessary changes, forward.”

    Cowling said that, given his explanation, fans should “at the very least stay silent during future games” as players take a knee.

    “Alternatively, they should just stay away from our club because anyone that still wants to boo now that I have explained the purpose and importance of the taking of the knee is not welcome at our club.

    The president claimed victimhood at his Georgia rally, which deeply alarmed the “Morning Joe” host, and Trump invited his supporters to join him.

    “…this has been the Republican Party’s strategy now for the past 25 years. They’re victims, these rich, spoiled, white billionaires are victims. Rich, spoiled, white multimillionaires are victims. They’re all victims, people that fly around in private jets are victims. The people that belong to exclusive country clubs are victims. The people like Donald Trump who were born rich, screwed up, will die rich anyway because they have a safety net of daddy’s money, they have trust funds — they’re all victims.”

    “How sad and how pathetic and how grotesque that they have convinced themselves — they do, I hear it every day,” Scarborough added. “I hear it every day. Rich lawyers, rich doctors, rich professionals — rich guys all talking about what victims they are, ‘Hollywood’s victimizing me.’ Hold on a second. I’m going to go out and buy, you know, another like $80,000, $100,000 car, you know? ‘Oh, I’m a victim.’ All they do is they talk about being victims.”
