When President-elect Joe Biden won the state of Georgia, he became the first Democratic presidential candidate to carry the state since 1992. That achievement was in large part due to the efforts of former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, whose organization, Fair Fight, helped register a slew of new voters in the state. The Georgia race was one of the most closely watched races during this election cycle, and Biden’s victory has wide-ranging implications for future Democratic success in the state.
During the 2020 election, voters in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania voted for Joe Biden. This wasn’t too big a surprise as those states had traditionally voted blue.
The GOP, though, was dismayed by the fact that Democrats were able to flip Arizona and Georgia. Georgia, a long-time stronghold for Republicans, was particularly galling.
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich congratulated President Donald Trump for receiving a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize and claimed former President Barack Obama merely received the prestigious award “for waking up and they gave it to him at the very beginning of his administration.”
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich repeated President Donald Trump’s own false claims about mail-in voting, saying that Democrats can’t win an “honest election” so they are trying “to set up an ability to steal it.”
Newt Gingrich has suggested that Donald Trump can turn his campaign around by adopting Richard Nixon’s 1972 election strategy. That was the year of the Watergate break-in.
In an extensive new report, Politico outlines how the President’s usual tactics don’t seem to be working against former Vice President Joe Biden. The article explains Gingrich’s thinking.
Are the majority of Americans lazy and averse to work? Would they prefer not to work and to enjoy a free ride from the government?
How we answer this question, or how congressional leaders answer it, has a lot to do with what is really life-or-death legislation coming out of Washington, particularly with regards to COVID-19 relief packages.
Americans enduring unemployment have typically, in the culture of the U.S. political economy, not been responded to with sympathy but rather with disdain, judgment, and blame.
And this has been true, we see, even when the nation has faced conditions of great economic austerity, begging the question, how can we blame people for not working when there is a scarcity of jobs?
Donald Trump has been attacking Bob Mueller’s special counsel investigation for nearly two years, calling it “a witch hunt” and “a hoax.” But according to the Associated Press, he may try to claim victory and upend Robert Mueller’s report no matter what it says.
Mueller may issue a report any day now, and as we wait the president and his Republican allies are saying that they expect it to show no clear evidence of Trump wrongdoing. They continue to maintain that the Trump campaign did not conspire (or “collude”) with Russia during the 2016 campaign which gave Trump a surprising victory.
Trump and his GOP congressional allies seem strangely confident that he will be exonerated despite Mueller’s findings. In fact, they are now saying that the Muller report will be used for Trump’s political advantage.
The AP reported:
“One scenario would have seemed downright implausible until recently. The president will take the findings and run on them, rather than against them, by painting the special counsel as an example of failed government overreach and Trump himself as the victim who managed to prove his innocence.”
"They're going to get somebody, and they're going to get him for something. And they're probably going to go to jail."
"They should abolish the Congressional Budget Office. It is corrupt. It is dishonest," Gingrich said.
"Those bureaucrats overwhelmingly voted for Clinton. There won’t be any real cooperation until we change federal law so we can fire them.”
"This a ridiculous shame? He loves these kids, has raised millions of dollars for them, and now must stop. Wrong answer!"
"I'm told he now just disclaims that. He now says it was cute, but he doesn't want to use it anymore."
"He could simply say, ‘Look, I want them to be my advisers. I pardon them if anyone finds them to have behaved against the rules. Period."
Ethics violator and Chief Clinton conspiracy monger from the 90s Newt Gingrich called Jill Stein the "nut wing of American politics" today in an effort to defend Donald Trump from her recall.
The Trump campaign has spent months questioning the legitimacy of the FBI.
Megyn Kelly took down Trump surrogate Newt Gingrich while destroying the Republican presidential nominee, and igniting the next phase of the implosion of the Republican Party.
"I think you have a duty...to have the courage to stand up and tell the truth; tell the truth about those who would impose a totalitarian secularism on us"
Teleprompter Trump tried to pivot to the economy this week in Detroit. Real Trump was having none of that.
Newt Gingrich accused the Bush family of behaving “childishly” simply because they had the prescience to avoid the Trump clownshow, aka the Republican National Convention.
