2020 Senate Elections thread, continued;

Yet another Republican senator showing courage and stepping up to the plate.

Georgia's new Senator, Kelly Loeffler let Simp Mitch have it, and called him out on his spiteful, passive aggressive games regarding witnesses.

Last night, the GOP scored a landslide win in a special Texas House election that the Democrats predicted would swing to them and be a bellwether.

I don't know what will replace the Left as the dominant ideology of the West.

Conservative populism is the phrase for what seems to be next. Maybe not.

But the Left is broken. They rely on raw power, hatred, slander, lawsuits, manipulation and the opposition to freedom in any form to maintain power.

These are all the hallmarks of a despised and decadent self-styled ruling class who are mocked by the people they supposedly represent.

@REX I am not by nature or experience an optimist about life on earth, or justice or the use of power.

But the Left is clearly in decline, They peaked in November, 2016.

Their stranglehold on state power in most areas of the country began to collapse in 2010.

Their power is still deep and strong. But the decline has begun - and it cannot be stopped.

The Left has no appeal to sane, decent people and even the young leftists will start to chafe under its hatred and rage.

Their absolute power and privilege has been based on political power and legal power that have accumulated slowly but very surely for 85 years. Add secrecy and mutual protection - and that is their foundation.

Their political power is in rapid decline. Their legal power is under constant siege by legions of new, comparatively young judges. Their veil of secrecy has been torn off permanently.

Their protection of each other will fall away because they are craven, privileged cowards.

The worst front-runner campaign in the modern history of campaigns. Makes Dukakis seem almost human.

Worth looking at the comments, though....😶

FossilJoe begging for bucks on twitter as he crumbles into dust, in the midst of an epidemic.

"Tonight marks our biggest public end-of-quarter deadline of the campaign so far.

I know times are tough, but what’s at stake in this election has never been clearer. If you could chip in to help us reach our goal, I would really appreciate it"

I look forward to "It's A Wonderful Life" every year because of her and Jimmy Stewart..

Interesting tidbit about that film, it was the first film for both Stewart and Capra after the end of the war in Europe. Stewart flew 25 missions in a B-17 as PIC, and Capra said a lot of Stewart's war anxiety came through in the film. I noticed that when I first watched it after reading that.

We were stationed in France at the time. Our relatives in the States were hysterical. We figured the Red Army would be coming along and what was going on in Cuba would solve itself which it did, no praise for the new frontiersmen

Agree, I'm not seeing Cuomo. I think they realize they are ashes, and just let Joe burn and hopefully rebuild.

Consumers will be very happy.
Climate change supporters will be up in arms. Let them take it to the courts. This will keep the AOC crowd busy for a long, long time.
Meanwhile, Trump can continue his infrastructure program without their interference.

"With interest rates for the United States being at ZERO, this is the time to do our decades long awaited Infrastructure Bill. It should be VERY BIG & BOLD, Two Trillion Dollars, and be focused solely on jobs and rebuilding the once great infrastructure of our Country! Phase 4"

The President's Infrastructure Plan.

I have been looking for news about this since the inauguration, but I thought he might wait until the second term.

But now is the time.

The really big news: Rice Krispie treats are back. I remember those from birthday parties when I was in grade school.

I didn't like them - too much sugar. Marshmallow. 😶

But they were different. Desserts made out of breakfast cereal. 🤔

@Dubby

Trump has been saying that the economy is basically chomping at the bit to rise again. It keeps trying it's hardest. The Wuhan mess derails it for a time and it rises again. Not to worry! Trust the TRUMP!!! When this mess is over, it's back to a strong, healthy economy! Rush was saying today can you imagine if we had to face this with the economy under Zero's "leadership." We at best would now be in a recession and possibly a depression.
