The People Of Georgia, On Behalf Of America , Deliver A Tremendous Rebuke To Donald Trump
Many of us wanted more from the November election even though Biden would be president. We wanted a clear rebuke of Donald Trump. While today's result is not near as good as a landslide defeat of Trump and a 3 or 4 seat advantage in the senate would have been , it is enough to signal a brighter future for the country for now.


In the end, both Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff will have received higher winning margins in Georgia than Joe Biden did.  I wonder if Donald Trump appreciates just how much that means to his bogus claims about his own race against Biden in Georgia, and elsewhere. 

Trump has been claiming , including very recently, that he won Georgia by hundreds of thousands of votes. The results from yesterday make that a highly dubious claim, to say the least, lol.   If Trump had actually won , Loeffler and Perdue would have won ..... or are we now going to hear that the Democrats simply repeated the steal, even with the world watching ever more closely this time?

No folks, the senate elections in Georgia have once again demonstrated the olympian level buffoonery of President* Trump.  I know he thinks he got what he wanted, the humiliation of the republican leadership in Georgia, but he is the only one who sees it that way. Republican leadership in Georgia is openly blaming Trump for their debacle yesterday. Adding insult to injury, the county where Trump held his rally Monday night had a lower voter turnout this time , after Trump urged them to get out and vote for Perdue and Loeffler , than it had two months ago. Republican turnout in rural areas in Georgia was less than expected, which would seem to signal that some of them had washed their hands of the whole circus in that state. 

Or maybe it was Mitch McConnell's opposition to the 2000 dollar stimulus checks that doomed the Republicans in the Georgia senate races. That is what some pundits are saying today. Now there is considerable speculation that the Democrats will use the reconciliation method to add the 2000 dollar sum to the covid relief package. Using the reconciliation method the threshold for passage is just a majority in the Senate , and not the 60 vote filibuster proof total required for normal legislation in that chamber. 

Many of us wanted more from the November election even though Biden would be president. We wanted a clear rebuke of Donald Trump. While today's result is not near as good as a landslide defeat of Trump and a 3 or 4 seat advantage in the senate would have been , it is enough to signal a brighter future for the country for now. Hopefully the Trump-induced Republican debacle in Georgia will make him less prominent on the political stage of the next few years.

Sean Treacy - Not true at all. 

Very True.

Mitch first used the abuse of the filibusterer as a way to screw the American voters, keeping them from getting Obama appointed judges & other types of appointees President Obama wanted in place.

Of course, once Mitch became Senate Majority leader, he just blocked the Senate from doing their Constitutional duty of giving or withholding their consent as part of his long term plan to gut the court system until such time when he would be able to cram judges of HIS own choosing into all of the openings he had stolen from the majority of voters that had put President Obama in place to fell them.

  Harry Reid says 82 presidential nominees have been blocked under President Barack Obama, 86 blocked under all other presidents

3 Charts Explain Why Democrats Went Nuclear on the Filibuster

The first two charts show the evolution of filibusters by presidential administration. As you can see, their use rose steadily through the ’80s and then leveled off starting around 1990. Democrats mainly kept things pretty stable throughout the Bush administration, with the number increasing only when Republicans lost the 2006 midterm elections and became the minority party.

At that point, they ratcheted up the use of filibusters to record levels, and there was no honeymoon when Obama won the presidency, not even for a minute.

Republicans went into full-bore filibuster mode the day he took office, and they’ve kept it up ever since. For all practical purposes, anything more controversial than renaming a post office has required 60 votes during the entire Obama presidency.

filibuster-dead-01_0.jpg

filibuster-dead-03.jpg

But it was Republican filibusters of judicial and executive-branch nominees that finally drove Democrats to act on Thursday.

Democrats had struck one deal after another with Republicans to try and rein in their abuse of the filibuster, but nothing worked.

A few nominees would get through, and then another batch would promptly get filibustered.

The chart below tells the tale. Under George Bush, Democrats mounted filibusters on 38 of his nominees.

That’s about five per year. Under Obama, Republicans have filibustered an average of 16 nominees per year.

filibuster-dead-02_0.jpg

The last straw came when Republicans announced their intention to filibuster all of Obama’s nominees to the DC circuit court simply because they didn’t want a Democratic president to be able to fill any more vacancies.

At that point, even moderate Democrats had finally had enough.

For all practical purposes, Republicans had declared war on Obama’s very legitimacy as president, forbidding him from carrying out a core constitutional duty.

Begging and pleading and cutting deals was no longer on the table. Eliminating the filibuster for judicial and executive branch nominees was the only option left, and on Thursday that’s what Democrats finally did.

 First off, try reading  the discussion. Obama, contra the false statement, had plenty of judges confirmed while McConnell was the minority leader, not "zero"

here's a long list just from 2011-2012:

Second,  82 nominees weren't blocked from their positions. If you actually looked into it, you'd see almost all of these supposedly  blocked nominations were confirmed, some unanimously.  Reid took advantage of your ignorance to manipulate you into believing a false fact by equating a call for cloture with blocking.  They aren't the same thing, at all.  This has been pointed out before, but it doesn't seem to do any good. You can lead a horse to water....

In fact, by that standard, Donald Trump had more nominees "blocked" than all Presidents combined.

Let's hope Biden has learned the lesson. He must slam through his program... and if some Republicans want to participate, it's up to them to make propositions.

While the official count is not yet complete, it does look to be an interesting next couple of years.

Let's hope Biden has learned the lesson. He must slam through his program

Read an opinion article last night where they put forth the proposition that should the Senate to go a 50-50 split how much power does that give the far-left Progressives? If party-line voting continues to be much of the norm, if the far-left threatens to withhold their votes unless the upcoming bill is progressive enough for them...  With the House as close as it is and the Senate in a 50-50 split, I suspect that party politics are going to go crazy trying to rein in members on both sides.

And one other unanswered question from the ACB hearings, can/should the vice-president vote during the advice & consent for judicial nominations?  The question was asked as the ACB hearings were started but never really answered. There were some people who put forth that the vice-president is there to cast the vote to break a tie, but others put forth that judicial nominations are not bills being voted on but the Senate providing advice and consent to the President.  As far as I know there is not yet a definitive answer to that question.

As I said, I suspect an interesting next couple of years and I'm willing tp predict a really wild 2022 election cycle.

Biden will have an interesting tightrope to walk. He needs to get some Republican participation in his agenda in order to get big items like infrastructure projects through the Senate, but he is also going to need to be on the side of the progressives in many of their causes as well. Black leaders can somewhat justifiably claim that they got Biden elected and got him control of the Senate. The Biden era will be one of compromise, but also one of moving social and economic justice items forward an inch or foot or two. .

  The reality is of course, almost immediately after his inauguration, Obama told Republican house leader Eric Cantor that "elections have consequences" and proceeded to exclude Republicans from stimulus negotiations, setting the tone for his Presidency.   He pushed the Republicans aside and made them irrelevant to his first two years in office. Biden will do the same.

And two years from now, they will blame Republicans for Biden's failure.

Many liberals on newstalkers must be shocked. They’ve been claiming today’s south is just as racist as it was before the civil rights act.  The election of Tim Scott from the birthplace of the confederacy didn’t shake their simple faith in an all pervasive racism.  Now  the people of Georgia have elected a radical black preacher to the senate from the heart of the south.

How can their ignorant worldview  possibly process this?   I’m sure they will soldier  on in their alternate Reality, where its always the good ole days of 1963 and they are the heroes of their own imagination fighting oppression.

More than 70 percent of Georgia voters say Congress has been doing too little to help individual Americans financially, and most say Congress has done too much to help big corporations.

Republicans challenging election results are ‘grasping for straws’: Delaware state Senator-elect

Kristin Myers
Wed, January 6, 2021, 9:15 AM EST
Roughly a dozen Republican senators plan on objecting Wednesday to the Congressional certification of the electoral college results, prolonging the process of affirming President-elect Joe Biden as the 46th president of the United States.

Challenging the certification process won’t change the outcome of the results; according to the   Associated Press , Biden picked up 306 electoral college votes to win the presidency.

“These folks are grasping for straws, they are seeking to appease a dangerous authoritarian wannabe,” Delaware state Senator-elect Sarah McBride told Yahoo Finance. “And fortunately, history will not be kind to these elected officials, and certainly will not be kind to Donald Trump.”

“These attempts by Donald Trump to undermine the will of the American voter, and also to undermine credibility and faith in American democracy, are the last gasps of a despotic authoritarian wannabe who has clearly demonstrated throughout his time in office a complete disregard for the actual well-being of the people,” McBride said.

Trump, she explained, spent his time in office with “an entire focus on enriching himself, his friends, and avoiding humiliation at the ballot box, which is what the American voters delivered back in November for him.”

I suspect that Trump's post election nonsense coupled with the irrational support of same by members of the R party contributed to this unusual loss in Georgia.   Trump has, IMO, contributed heavily to empowering the more radical factions of the D party.   Biden will now have to stand up to them pretty much on his own.   Given the irresponsible nature of our federal government, it worries me whenever we lack at least a partisan check.

A 50-50 split in the Senate isn't going to be an automatic win for Biden. It almost assures that for a majority of things any group of bi-partisan moderates will have the power play. Most political wonks don't anticipate Dems changing the 60 vote rule unless Reps look to abuse it by opposing everything Biden wants.

The first test will be any new vote on more direct stimulus checks which IF Senators are to be believed should pass the new Senate easily. Since my car died yesterday I could use a few extra dollars. The amount just quoted me on the phone is depressing and there must be some cosmic law of nature that maintains any time you bring a vehicle in for repair they must find something unrelated to inflate the cost... OR it's just another segment of Finagle's Law - Inanimate objects are out to get us.

Agreed.   My position is that the partisan leadership politics in DC have largely mitigated the constitutional checks and balances.   The leadership essentially directs the members and thus wields substantial power (clearly against the principles of the CotUS).   The only real check we have nowadays has been the partisan check where the other party holds the presidency, the House or the Senate.

But you are correct, a D 60 vote majority in the Senate would be required to remove all partisan checks.

True, but it means Moscow Mitch will no longer have a chokehold on laws getting up or down votes for bills coming from congress. That by itself will make a HUGE difference in how the Senate will function. Will there be a lot of tie votes that have to be broken by the Vice President? Yes, it's likely, but that's a far better result than the ridiculous farce we watched under McConnell. Also, that will allow Biden to actual get nominees through the senate instead of having them just discarded for no other reason than Biden nominated them as Mitch no doubt would have done. I think we'll see a group of Republicans who will choose to work with the Democrats to pass legislation that the majority of Americans have been begging for and we'll actually see some bi-partisanship. Will the Perma-Trumper's continue to drag their feet and try to filibuster and throw tantrums? Of course they will, the vestige's of the far right Banana Republicans will be with us for a long time sadly, but I believe those closer to the center will be willing to compromise and get far more done now than the childish stonewalling that has occurred under Mitch since Democrats gained control of the house in 2018.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the majority leader of the Senate gets to call what bills get to the floor for a vote.  During the 113 Congress Republicans controlled the House and Democrats controlled the Senate. And I remember people bitching about Harry Reid who was the majority leader at the time for slow walking and blocking bills also.  So it's a feature of partisanship, one I wish could be removed but I don't expect to see it disappear.

Tremendous?  YES!  Rebuke?  YES!

Not a photo finish dear.

When did tRump EVER KEEP HIS WORD?

A race won fair and square like the presidency, which tRump lost by over 7 MILLION VOTES!

We know Biden will keep his word,

Tremendous?   Rebuke?  

The two Georgia R senators should have won.   Their losses do seem like a rebuke of Trump (and/or the GOP as a whole).

I think maybe it might have also been a slap in the face to Mitch McConnell

I think you are correct........well he and the rest of the dumbasses that wouldn't pass the $2,000 payments. He signed the GOP's death warrant in the Senate. That the fool couldn't see this coming makes one wonder what the hell is wrong in his head.

Poor form Mitch. Poor form.

And I do realize not wanting to add to the already staggering deficit and debt certainly would suck in the long run, it is what is and was needed now. Somehow I knew this would bite him and the control in the Senate right square in the ass.

Why, Thank-you, Jim. That thought had been going around and around in my head. Mr Giggles and I were discussing it and he called Moscow Mitch some choice names. Funny. That money is going right back into the economy, that's why they're called "stimulus" checks. Is he that stupid he didn't see that? 

We got ours and plunked more than twice that amount back into the economy on Saturday

That's what the majority of the folks did once they got that money.  Put it right back into the economy.  

It's a win win situation.

I just had to get a new one because it said there was no SIM card.  That happened to me before and if you take it out and put it back in again, it usually solved the problem.  This time I broke the little tray that held the SIM card so I had to get a new one.  I was without a phone for like a week.  That sucked.  It was a pain in the ass to get everything loaded on to it.

I hope Biden keeps his word, only time will tell.

Don't worry, he will, he's not a serial lying scum bag like Trump. It's time to get back to some normalcy in government.

The rebuke was of Trumpism and Banana Republicans who have been trying to throw out the free and fair election results because their dear leader lost. It's "tremendous" because Georgia has not been a Democrat State for decades and Trump won Georgia in 2016 by almost 7 points and Republicans won the senate race by 13 points. Democrats getting a win, even a razor thin one, shows a HUGE flip and gives Democrats control of the Senate. If that isn't a "tremendous rebuke" I don't know what is.
