“Where are all these Fox News viewers going? How is Fox coping?

A growing number of Trump allies are publicly saying that the election is over and it’s time for President Donald Trump and his base to accept that. The Joe Biden transition process has begun and even Laura Ingraham bluntly told her audience Monday night she would be lying to them if she said Trump’s chances are good.

But there are still prominent Trump supporters keeping hope alive and saying there’s still a chance they can turn things around through the legal challenges going on across the country — a large number of which have been already rejected in court.

Sidney Powell joined Lou Dobbs on Fox Business Tuesday — days after her split with the Trump team — to talk up the supposed “Kraken” she’s going to release and continued making claims about voting machines and an election so rigged it changed the outcome.



Mitch McConnell’s Do Nothing Republicans Are Killing You – Robert Reich…

“Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich excoriates Mitch McConnell for sending the Senate on vacation as the pandemic reaches its worst peak yet, and lays out the top policy priorities for a desperately needed disaster relief bill.

Food lines stretch for miles, 40 million people face eviction, and our Covid death toll is about equal to 9/11 every three days.

By the time the Senate returns on November 30, based on current trends, an additional estimated 16,000 Americans will have died from the virus.

People need disaster relief, and they need it now.

Congress must re-up expanded unemployment benefits, stop evictions and foreclosures, distribute another round of Paycheck Protection Program loans, shore up state and local governments, and protect essential workers.

When the last Covid relief package was passed on March 27th, there were 18,093 new cases that day. Now, there are over 150,000 new cases every day. With hospitalizations lagging behind cases, and deaths lagging behind hospitalizations, it’s clear that this is going to get much, much worse unless people shelter in place. But most Americans can’t do this without relief.

The writing is on the wall. Do your job, Mitch McConnell.”

He presents the causes of its ongoing decline this 21st century, and then offers a conclusion on the right, center and left political responses to decline.”
