GA Secretary of State Takes Cheap Shot at Donald Trump Over 2020 Claims

“I think at some level he must know that he did lose the election…”

During the 2020 election, one of the most unusual results that the nation experienced came from the great state of Georgia, whose electoral votes went to a Democratic candidate for President for the first time since the mid-1990’s.

Local officials were adamant that the results were correct, insisting that the growing population of capital city Atlanta had a similar effect to New York City’s control over New York State politics.

But this didn’t satisfy Donald Trump, who to this day has insisted that the 2020 election was rigged against him, and has often pointed to the surprising results in the Peach State to prove it.

This week, the Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger lashed out on CNN, and took an ugly shot at Trump in the process.

“I’m a lifelong Republican. At the end of the day, I have to always put, you know, my duty to the Constitution and to our country above all. At the end of the day, we’ve done audits, we’ve done investigations, and some of those are still ongoing, so I can’t comment on those. But vice president Biden did carry the state of Georgia.”

And then…

He continued, “I think at some level he must know that he did lose the election because his advisers, his lawyers, told him that he lost the election. In fact, books are coming out that told him where the polling was coming into the election. But people use elections and this narrative to really disrupt and destroy confidence in the election process. We’ve done three counts on this. The initial count, the 100 percent hand recount, and then did a final scan count, and all three results were very close. At the end of the day, President Trump came up short in Georgia.”

The state is also investigating a phone call from Trump to Raffensberger during the post-election fracas, in which the President is said to have pushed for election officials to reexamine the results.

Southwest Caves to Pressure from Anti-Vaccine Employees

But there’s one heck of a catch.

Published

on

Last weekend was an unfortunate one for Southwest Airlines, who suffered from the cancelation of nearly a third of their flight schedule…and just days after they announced that a vaccine mandate would soon go into effect for their thousands of employees.

The airlines denied that the vaccine mandate had anything to do with the cancelations, blaming weather and air traffic control issues.  But, when researchers compared the number of total flights cancelled to the number of Southwest flights cancelled, it was fairly obvious that this was a localized issue.

Only a few days after that, a massive protest of their vaccine mandate hit home near headquarters.

By Tuesday of this week, the airline had been forced to back down.

Southwest Airlines dropped a plan to put unvaccinated workers with pending exemptions on unpaid leave after a December 8 deadline following protests by their employees.

“The employee will continue to work, while following all COVID mask and distancing guidelines applicable to their position, until the accommodation has been processed,” according to an internal note obtained by CNBC written by Southwest’s Senior Vice President of Operations and Hospitality Steve Goldberg and Vice President and Chief People Officer Julie Weber.

And then, even after a new deadline was set, the company doesn’t appear to be baring its teeth in regard to enforcement.

The company is giving employees until November 24 to finish their vaccinations or apply for a medical or religious exemptions. While these exemptions are pending, employees will continue being paid, and those who are rejected will continue working “as we coordinate with them on meeting the requirements (vaccine or valid accommodation),” CNBC reported.

It was unclear exactly where the buck would ultimately stop with the new timeline, but there is little doubt that we’ll soon find out.
