Keeping Hierarchies Intact More Important than Democracy

Longtime Republican strategist and Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt warned that America is in a dangerous hour stating that president Donald Trump’s effort to overturn the election result “was a failed coup” that would result in him attempting another.  

Slamming the attorney generals of the 18 red states who joined Texas in the lawsuit before the Supreme Court, Mr Schmidt said: “What happened in the month of November premeditatedly, deliberately, faith and belief in American democracy was poisoned by President Trump, culminating with 126 members of the House of Representatives and 18 Republicans attorney generals signing an amicus brief to a garbage lawsuit that is, in essence, a declaration of repudiation of American democracy.” 

Republicans that support Trump's effort to overturn democracy in the United States obviously believe that keeping themselves on top of our nation's hierarchies is much more important than the democracy towards which the country professes to aspire.

Top of the Hierarchy Wants Clemency Others Don't Get

Outgoing President Donald Trump is becoming flooded with requests for clemency from his closest business associates and high-profile criminals.  

Since Trump lost the election six weeks ago, calls and emails have been flooding into the West Wing from people looking to benefit from the President's powers of clemency. So inundated is Trump's staff with requests for pardons or commutations that a spreadsheet has been created to keep track of the requests directed to Trump's close aides. More swamp flooding the White House.

Negro Baseball Leagues Gaining Deserved Recognition by MLB

Major League Baseball's books record books will be changed after MLB announced that it is reclassifying the Negro Leagues as a major league.

MLB said Wednesday that it was "correcting a longtime oversight in the game's history" by elevating the Negro Leagues on the centennial of their founding. The Negro Leagues consisted of seven leagues, and MLB will include records from those circuits between 1920 and 1948. The Negro Leagues began to dissolve one year after Jackie Robinson became MLB's first Black player with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947.

Move Over, Angry White Men of the 50's


Time for the "good ole boys" to move over. They have way over had their chance to make decisions. 

 

Dr. Jill Biden - YES

Of course it is absolutely ridiculous and incredibly sexist that the Wall Street Journal would allow an opinion piece that criticizes First Lady elect Jill Biden for using her title Dr. These men need to go hide somewhere. Is this all a publicity stunt or something, it is so ridiculous.
