  1. Gino Spocchia Tue, December 1, 2020, 8:35 AM EST With almost a month until Georgia voters decide whether Republicans or Democrats control Congress’s upper chamber, Donald Trump shared a tweet that asked “why bother voting for Republicans?” The US president shared the post on Monday as he continued to attack Republicans’ commitment to the electoral process and an election he will not concede, despite two crucial Senate elections next month. “Why bother voting for Republicans if what you get is [Doug] Ducey and [Brian] Kemp?”, said the tweet, which was written by conservative commentator Carmine Sabia, and shared by the president, a Republican. His remarks come as voters are set to decide between two Republicans or two Democratic challengers to take Georgia’s seats in the US Senate, and possible control over the upper chamber in Congress, in 35 days time. Mr Trump, who plans to campaign in the battleground state this weekend, has appeared to have turned against Republicans as his election defeat continued to become near-impossible to undo. And despite the two crucial senate races, Mr Trump delivered attacks on Georgia’s governor, Mr Kemp, as well as Arizona’s governor, Mr Ducey, who was alleged to have “put a Democrat in office" as the state confirmed election results, and Mr Trump’s defeat to Mr Biden, on Monday. On Sunday, the president told Fox News he was “ashamed” to have backed Mr Kemp’s 2018 campaign to become governor of Georgia, and that the Republican had “done absolutely nothing” to question the state’s election results, despite repeated — and baseless — allegations about election fraud by Mr Trump. Republican donors and strategists told the Associated Press , however, they were concerned that Mr Trump’s attacks on Republicans would persuade people not to vote in the Senate races, and that “Trump’s comments are damaging the Republican brand”, as Republican donor Dan Eberhart, described. Still, the president told supporters they should back senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler against two strong Democratic opponents, who have pushed Georgia’s Senate elections to the wire, with no candidate securing a 50 per cent majority on 3 November. Republicans need only one seat to reclaim control over the Senate, while Democrats need both Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock to take the Senate to a tie, which would then be decided by president-elect Kamala Harris.

  2. I'd work without a paycheck for this kind of cash-out too!!! Very little of this goes to his defense fund, the rest is his to spend as he wishes... How much have you donated to his latest scam? He doesn't care about the election, he is ringing the bell and eating on the hog... What a genius!!! Nick Visser ·Senior Reporter, HuffPost Tue, December 1, 2020, 1:02 AM EST President Donald Trump has raised between $150 million and $170 million since Election Day amid ongoing appeals to supporters as part of his effort to undercut results of the race that saw him lose by millions of votes to President-elect Joe Biden, according to several media reports. Both The Washington Post and The New York Times reported details of the massive haul, much of which was raised through small-dollar donations from the president’s ardent base in the week after the election. But those appeals are based on misleading emails and text messages, and the Trump campaign has been using shady legal language buried in the solicitations that effectively gives the president broad power to use the money for a variety of purposes beyond fighting the outcome of the election. The fine print behind the fundraising says the first 75% of any donation goes to the Save America leadership political action committee, which Trump set up in mid-November, and the remaining 25% goes to the Republican Party’s operating expenses. Any donor would have to give more than $5,000 before their money would go to the recount effort. Trump and his surrogates have continued to spout lies about the election, pointing to discredited conspiracy theories about voting machines and fraud behind mail-in ballots. There has been no evidence to back up those claims, and every legal effort the president has backed to overturn election results in six battleground states has failed. All six battleground states have now certified their votes declaring Biden the winner. The president-elect is set to be inaugurated on Jan. 20, and Trump will have to leave the White House (his administration signed off on the official transition last week after resisting doing so for days). The figures, shared by an anonymous source close to the Trump campaign, are mammoth and unprecedented. They near sums raised at the height of the presidential race and would almost guarantee that Trump will exit the White House with all of his campaign debt paid off and a sizable chunk in the bank for any political activity after his presidency. The Post noted there are few limitations on how the money can be spent and that it could easily flow to Trump’s own properties through event fees or pay for his travel or personal expenses.

  3. I'm more worried about the stability of people who think every state and local government official, every volunteer poll worker, every judge and every national security agency is in on some grand conspiracy... Conspiracies don't usually work out because most people can't keep a secret... JMHO
  4. I think the point is they are not moving to America. Foxconn the big manufacturer was supposed to move to Wisconsin, but I don't think that is happening.
  5. Yell fire enough times and people run out of the building. Trump has screwed the pooch on this one. There is absolutely no evidence of fraud. No votes are counted outside America. Over 30 lawsuits thrown out. Recounts show the election results accurate. Unless you think every judge, voter, volunteer poll worker, state and local governments are all in on this conspiracy, you simply have to give it up and move forward. You don't really believe all these people are in on it, do you? There are people thinking why vote when it's already fixed... Talk about delusional. Kelly Loeffler had a rally Saturday and there was very few people there, and she had the QAnon crazy lady Marjorie Green on stage. This is getting sadder by the day. JMHO
  6. Well I never saw this coming... Trump's efforts to create a conspiracy over voter fraud now has republican voters in Georgia thinking about not voting because it's fixed... He may have just lost the senate with his attempts to tear down the system.... Now that would be tragic for his party and his legacy.... So which is it? Are the elections fixed or not? Pick one!!! JMHO RNC chair warns dubious Georgia voters losing 'faith' in election process could cost Senate runoff Tim O'Donnell Sat, November 28, 2020, 12:06 PM EST·2 min read Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel on Saturday held a pre-Georgia Senate runoff "meet and greet" at the Cobb County GOP office in Marietta, Georgia. CNN's DJ Judd, who was on the scene, reported that a fair amount of the conversation during the event revolved around President Trump, rather than Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.), who are both in competitive races to retain their seats in the upper chamber. Voters in attendance reportedly wanted to hear about general election recount efforts across the country, and one person asked McDaniel why Georgia voters should "trust" the runoff elections when they've "already been decided." McDaniel argued that they haven't been decided, and, in fact, look hopeful for Republicans at the moment, adding that "if you lose your faith and you don't vote ... that will decide it." McDaniel remained upbeat throughout, and appeared to have strong support from the crowd by the end when she received a round of applause after telling the audience Trump would want them to get out and vote for Loeffler and Perdue. But the doubt-filled question did appear to highlight some of the challenges the party will face as the Trump campaign continues to push unfounded allegations of voter fraud.

  7. Reuters and Isobel Asher Hamilton 3 hours ago Major Apple supplier Foxconn is moving some production of the iPad and Macbook from China to Vietnam, a source told Reuters. The source said Apple requested the move as a way of making its supply chain less reliant on China, following the trade war between the nation and President Donald Trump's administration. This will be the first time the iPad has been manufactured outside of China. Major Apple supplier Foxconn is moving some iPad and MacBook assembly to Vietnam from China at the request of Apple, a person with knowledge of the plan told Reuters, as the US firm diversifies production to minimize the impact of a US-China trade war. The development comes as the outgoing administration of President Donald Trump encourages US firms to shift production out of China. During Trump's tenure, the United States has targeted made-in-China electronics for higher import tariffs, and restricted supplies of components produced using US technology to Chinese firms it deems a national security risk. Apple was able to skirt some the tariffs, but it seems the iPhone-maker is wary that being dependent on China for its global supply chain, which could make the company vulnerable to geopolitical forces. Apple's dependence on China was also thrown into stark relief at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, as the outbreak caused major disruption in the company's supply cahin. Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Taiwan's Foxconn, formally Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd, on Tuesday announced a $270 million investment to set up a new subsidiary called FuKang Technology Co Ltd — a move the person said was aimed at supporting the Vietnam expansion. Shifting iPad production to Vietnam will mark the first time Foxconn has assembled the device outside of China. This isn't the first indication we've had that Apple is looking to seed its global supply chain beyond China. The firm already plans to spend up to $1 billion expanding an iPhone assembly plant in India as "strongly requested" by Apple to diversify production beyond China, people with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters in July. Foxconn and peers such as Pegatron Corp are also considering building plants in Mexico, people with knowledge of the matter said, as Washington promotes near-shoring production. Foxconn Chairman Liu Young-way in August told investors the US-China trade war had split the world into two, saying his firm aimed to provide "two sets of supply chains."

  8. Erik Pedersen Tue, November 24, 2020, 4:44 PM EST Hal Ketchum, a singer-songwriter who rode the 1990s country music wave with hit singles including “Small Town Saturday Night,” “Past the Point of Rescue” and “Hearts Are Gonna Roll,” died Monday of dementia complications at his home. He was 67. His wife, Andrea, posted the news on social media today. “May his music live on forever in your hearts and bring you peace,” she wrote. He had revealed his diagnosis in April 2019. After settling in Nashville via Texas in the late 1980s, Ketchum broke out with a string of hit country singles starting with “Small Town Saturday Night” in 1991. That track peaked at No. 2 — as did follow-ups including “Past the Point of Rescue” and “Hearts Are Gonna Roll.” “Sure Love,” the lead title track from Ketchum’s 1992 LP, hit No. 3 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. Country music was seeing a frenzied boom in popularity at the time, fueled by the mega-success of the likes of Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Trisha Yearwood and Brooks & Dunn. Ketchum’s albums didn’t sell by the ton like those acts did, but he continued to score hits with tracks including “Mama Knows the Highway” and “Stay Forever,” both of which hit the country top 10. He became a member of Nashville’s revered Grand Ole Opry in 1994. Ketchum’s popularity had peaked mid-decade, but he continued to record and tour into the late 2000s. Late in that decade — exhausted and battling multiple sclerosis — he left Nashville to return home to Texas. “I was hiding out,” he said in his website’s official bio. “I’d been in the public for so long. I didn’t even go into town; I had my daughter bring me groceries. I develop a form of agoraphobia, really. I found pleasure in watching the stars at night and watching the sun during the afternoon. I also put out a lot of bird feeders and basically talked to myself all day long.” Born on April 9, 1953 in Greenwich, NY, he began his musical journey as a drummer before pivoting to banjo and acoustic guitar. He honed his songwriting craft with encouragement from the likes of fellow New Braunfels/Gruene Hall local Lyle Lovett and Jimmie Dale Gilmore and eventually moved to Music City. There he cut his 1988 debut disc, Threadbare Alibis, for Watermelon Records. It failed to chart, but Ketchum moved to Curb Records, which would release his follow-up — 1991’s Past the Point of Rescue, which went gold — and his next eight albums, including the commercial hits. By 2009, his health was deteriorating as he battled acute transverse myelitis, which is related to his MS. He would release a final album, I’m the Troubadour, in 2014.
