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…”

Published

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.

Biden Begins Sounding Alarm on Mysterious New ‘Monkeypox’ Outbreaks

What’s the world going to throw at us next?

What more does this world want from us?  What more can the people on this planet endure as far as sustained calamity is concerned?

Just as we began to crawl out of the COVID-19 pandemic, America began teetering over the edge of an economic recession.  Then, right on the heels of those concerns, Vladimir Putin decides that he’s going to get World War III’s first few chess moves out of the way.  Now we’re on the precipice of a global food shortage, and, to top it all off, we need to start worrying about something called “Monkeypox”.

President Joe Biden said Sunday the new monkeypox outbreak should concern “everybody,” as it continues to baffle medical officials around the world.

“Everybody should be concerned about [it],” Biden said in South Korea, while speaking with a group of reporters before he boarded Air Force One for Japan, Reuters reported.

The president’s remarks come as numerous outbreaks of monkeypox were reported in Africa, followed by other reported cases in Europe and the U.S.

“We’re working on it, hard to figure out what we do,” added Biden.

The total number of cases remains low, but the illness could spread quickly.

While there are at least 80 confirmed cases of the disease worldwide and another 50 suspected cases, the U.S. has only confirmed a pair of cases after a man in Massachusetts was diagnosed with the disease. Another man in New York City also tested positive for monkeypox.

Cases have been reported in Britain, Spain, Portugal, Italy, the United States, Sweden, and Canada, all by individuals who reportedly had no travel history with Africa. France, Germany, Belgium, and Australia also reported confirmed cases this week.

Health authorities believe that Monkeypox could be fatal in approximately 10% of the population, but those those with smallpox vaccines may be provided some extra defense against it.

Biden Bailed Out by Germany as 78,000 Pounds of Formula Arrives

The administration has been abysmal in addressing the crisis.

Published

Everywhere we look in America today, something is amiss.  This is not the well-oiled machine of yore, and in such an astounding way that the stagnation could only have come from the top.

And yes, the Biden administration’s reluctance to lead has been a rather apparent issue from the get-go.  (Heck, it didn’t even look like Biden even wanted to run for President, let alone be the President).

Even now, as an astonishing baby formula shortage affects our nation’s parents, it took help from Germany to get anything done.

A military plane carrying enough specialty infant formula for more than half a million baby bottles arrived Sunday in Indianapolis, the first of several flights expected from Europe aimed at relieving a shortage that has sent parents scrambling to find enough to feed their children.

President Joe Biden authorized the use of Air Force planes for the effort, dubbed “Operation Fly Formula,” because no commercial flights were available.

The formula weighed 78,000 pounds (35,380 kilograms), White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters aboard Air Force One as Biden flew from South Korea to Japan.

The administration tried to spin this into a “win”.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack was in Indianapolis to greet the arrival of the first shipment.

The flights are intended to provide “some incremental relief in the coming days” as the government works on a more lasting response to the shortage, Brian Deese, director of the White House National Economic Council, said Sunday.

Deese told CNN’s “State of the Union” that Sunday’s flight brought 15% of the specialty medical grade formula needed in the U.S., and because of various actions by the government, people should see “more formula in stores starting as early as this week.”

There is still a good possibility that the American manufacturers who’ve fallen behind won’t be getting back up to speed for several weeks still, which means Germany may be called on for another drop sooner rather than later.
