Across the U.S., coronavirus cases are surging and pushing the health care system to its limits.

Every day since Election Day, more than 100,000 people in the country have tested positive for the virus.

In many places, there aren’t enough nurses and doctors to handle the rising caseloads, and staffing agencies are slammed with requests for more.

Lost Causes, from the Confederacy to Trump

By Amy Goodman & Denis Moynihan

President Donald Trump has embarked on a lost cause akin to that embraced by Southerners after the Confederacy was crushed. That historical “Lost Cause” falsely posited that the U.S. Civil War was fought not to defend slavery, but, rather, to preserve states’ rights and their cherished Southern way of life. That was a lie. The Confederates were soundly defeated, surrendering unconditionally at Appomattox on April 9, 1865. But the institutions they fought to protect — white supremacy and the brutal oppression of African Americans — continued, shrouded in the false narrative of the Lost Cause. Trump and Trumpism are its new embodiment, a Lost Cause embraced by over 70 million voters in this past election.

Trump refuses to concede to former Vice President Joe Biden, filing lawsuits challenging Biden’s decisive electoral college lead, and despite losing to Biden in the popular vote by more than 5 million votes (and still counting). Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, meanwhile, publicly promises a “a smooth transition to a second Trump administration.” Trump fired his defense secretary and others deemed insufficiently loyal, and is packing the Pentagon with “yes men,” like racist Islamophobe Anthony Tata, who called President Obama a “secret Muslim,” a “Manchurian Candidate” and a “terrorist leader.”

Lost amidst the chaos is this simple, inarguable fact: Mass movements drove the historic voter turnout that won the election for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. “It is the organizers … who have been organizing Black communities around issues that impact us, that mobilized those voters for the Biden-Harris win,” Bree Newsome Bass, a North Carolina-based artist and antiracist activist said this week on the Democracy Now! news hour. She has little patience for the bipartisan direction being signaled by the Biden transition team…

Trump’s Frivolous Lawsuits Are the Tip of the Iceberg in His Refusal to Concede

Written by Marjorie Cohn

As masses of people poured into the streets to celebrate the end of Donald Trump’s fascist rule, the lame duck president’s lawyers were filing frivolous lawsuits in an attempt to nullify Joe Biden’s victory. But none of these suits, even if successful, would change the results of the election.

Shortly after CNN called the election for Biden, Trump said in a statement, “Beginning Monday, our campaign will start prosecuting our case in court to ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated.”

First of all, only prosecutors prosecute cases — in criminal court. Private litigants in civil cases are called plaintiffs. And second, anyone who has the money to hire a lawyer can bring a lawsuit about anything. Thousands of legal actions are filed every day, but very few are taken seriously by judges. It’s unclear whether Trump is even paying his hired guns; Rudy Giuliani once said he works for Trump without pay. Read more

Inspection- STOP!


By Ken Carman

 We should have known when he and his closest: blood related, advisors decided to send a shill over to destroy the post office when it Inspectionwas so obvious the intent was to wreck the PO and voting via mail in the time of COVID. After all, if it was so bad it would self destruct, right? Increase security on the receiving end if he was so concerned, not kneecap the nation’s mail service. A service in the Constitution.
 We should have known when he kept downplaying COVID once he and his blood related advisors found out it hits blacks more than others: a constituency that tends not to vote for him.
 We should have known when any result except him being reelected would supposedly mean it was stolen. Making, and hinting, at these kinds of claims LONG before the first vote was cast in BOTH elections he ran in.
 We should have known that any behavior that came even light years away from close to this by a candidate of the other major party was something they wouldn’t tolerate, like back in 2000. Read more
