“Sidney Powell, the Trump lawyer who said last week at a press conference that Hugo Chavez, George Soros, and the Clinton Foundation somehow rigged the election for Joe Biden is now no longer a part of the Trump legal team. Rudy Giuliani issues a brief press statement over the weekend distancing himself from Powell, but the whole country already saw her on stage next to his melting face spewing insane conspiracy theories. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.

Why Mitch McConnell Should Worry About Georgia…

Date: November 23, 2020

01) LINK


“Georgia runoff wins will end Mitch McConnell.

The rushed confirmation of Justice Amy Coney Barrett has, for the first time in decades, made Democrats think seriously about progressive reforms to the Supreme Court. Today, conservatives hold a 6-3 majority on the court, illegitimately engineered by Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell. This stark reality has radicalized the base. It has even made some Democratic senators consider using their power to achieve deep structural change, as opposed to cosmetic bipartisan redecorating.

Unfortunately, those senators are likely to be in the minority until at least the beginning of 2023. And as long as McConnell remains the majority leader, he is unlikely to allow any reforms (or legislation or democracy) to go forward in the Senate. But Democrats must continue to plan for the day when they have enough seats in the chamber to implement a plan that will mitigate Republican lordship over the Supreme Court.
