Biden now goes on offense. Will that include action against the Trump Steal?
[ Editor’s Note: We got a ‘two-fer’ today. The electoral college vote went smoothly without any silliness. The reverse 307 vs 232 landslide is now the official history of Biden vs. Trump. And as a bonus, the vaccine shipments began arriving all over America for hospital front line workers to begin taking today.
Biden goes on the offensive with his speech today, but not overly so. As yours truly has long predicted, Trump has gone down by his own hand, primarily due to refusing to stop bluffing his way through his presidency. I had said he would give us a TV theatrical version of a president.
Losing is one thing, but by adding his attempt to steal the Biden election, Trump now has tattoos all over his face saying ‘lying cheat’ that will be visible forever until the worms erase them. And in what seems to have been some kind of Republican political suicide pact, the 17 state attorneys general and 126 members of the house have jumped onto the Trump ship of shame, and will always be remembered for what they attempted.
There are hero bookends for his sad smear on our election. To all the election workers, we owe our thanks for their holding the line against a Trump Steal that respected no boundaries of decency.
And then we had the State, Federal and Supreme Courts put their wooden stakes through the heart of the vampire Trump Steal legal cases, over and over, on similar grounds of lack of jurisdiction and any credible evidence.
No group of political operatives has ever so publicly humiliated the nation and themselves more than these Republican grifters. I can take a hot shower and wash off the spit sent flying my way. But for them, they will wear the scarlet letter R wherever they go, impostors among us.
It was a good day for democracy, and I pray that they keep coming to ease the pain we see, with so many suffering across the land. But at least the pain of having Mr. Trump as our acting chief of State will be one we will soon no longer have to endure… Jim W. Dean ]
