Those damn radical left wing judges....i mean oops

You have at least three judges that are partisan hacks.

Alito
Thomas
Barrett — i admit I’m projecting her to be based on that fact that she went thru with confirmation and then appeared with President for his campaign bullshit at the WH

Kavanaugh may be one too but we’ll see. He openly talked about revenge against the Democrats for what he went through (and maybe Matt Damon too.... )

Gorsuch seems like he’ll follow the law as he sees it from 1876, but doesn’t come across as someone who’ll make his politics known

Most likely, from what I’ve read. No need to rush with a projection at this stage anyway.

Surprised they haven’t called NC for Trump though.

Rumors are that whenever Trump gives in to the fact that he lost, he will do that by just announcing that he's running in 2024.

That would be straight out of the Narcissist Playbook. He can project an image that he is still a "winner" and get his followers to fawn all over him. I think he'll do that.

It’s all just theater at this point.

Until it isn’t.

Think the next phase is talk of state(s) electors “discussing” with the White House about casting the EC votes for Trump despite Biden winning them.

I put it in “” cause i think there are enough guardrails in place where it wouldn’t happen

But at this point nothing would shock me.

I would still like to see some shakeup within Dem leadership, both in Congress and with the national party.

It doesn’t have to be AOC or someone like that, but less Old White people would be a good first step. Policy would naturally shift with that change alone

Is there an escalator in the WH from which he will descend to grace us all with the news?

Yeah, I don't think that many electors chosen by the Democratic Party (in the states where Biden won) will become faithless and change their vote. Though it would be interesting to hear what the White House would want to discuss with Hillary Clinton (who is apparently an elector for the state of New York).

More than 130 Secret Service officers are quarantining due to positive coronavirus tests or exposure to a co-worker who has tested positive, the Washington Post reports.

Why it matters: Officials told the Post that they believe the cases at least partly stem from President Trump's run of campaign rallies before Election Day. The number of officers forced off-duty — roughly 10% of its core security team — could stress the Secret Service at large, forcing overtime and missed days off to make up for the strain.

"Being down more than 100 officers is very problematic. That does not bode well for White House security," a former senior Secret Service supervisor told the Post.

He’s so egotistical he wants to take credit for this but really he’s just gone out of style in the GOP. They found an easier way to manipulate the masses and he needs a new audience to latch onto.

Have we heard a SINGLE PEEP about judicial activism in recent months? Anyone? Bueller??

Because “judicial activism” is yet another one of those things that the Republicans are VERY concerned about when it suits them. Others include the debt and fiscal conservatism.
