Donna Shalala loses in Florida
to Maria Elvira Salazar
While we’re waiting for the presidential results 11-04-20 at 6:52 a.m. Wisconsin is lost but Pennsylvania is hanging in the balance.
Political commentator Erick Erickson:
In Florida, Hispanic voters and young black men handed Donald Trump the state, after having handed it to Ron DeSantis two years ago.
The Republican Party is becoming a coalition of working-class white voters, young black men, and Hispanic voters. The media response that Hispanic and black voters want “toxic masculinity” or a “strong man” strikes me as extremely racist. Those professional political prognosticators who have hanged their hat on demography giving the Democrats a coming permanent majority have stooped to racist tropes instead of examining what is happening.
The data overwhelming shows these voters are going with the GOP over jobs and education for their kids. For the Democrats to repair this, AOC must be DOA at the policy table. The policies of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party are anathema to these voters who want a fighting chance at wealth accumulation without having the government then take it all away in the name of equity.
Donald Trump may win or lose, but the progressive agenda got slaughtered at the ballot box last night. The GOP will most likely keep the Senate. The House GOP has defied all the odds and picked up seats. Even the GOP did not expect that.
Blaska’s Bottom Line: Biden out-performed Hillary by 43,000 votes in Dane County (260,000 to 217,000), off-setting Trump’s tick-up to 79,000 from 71,000 four years ago. We won’t know the presidency for several days, at the least. But 2020 was NOT the blow-out Democrats hoped for! A more even-keeled Trump would have won this thing, Covid pandemic or not.
Likely, game over.
Trump’s childish tweets cost him another term, but HE REALLY SCREWED the nation by giving a victory to Harris.
Open Borders…………. Corruption, past and future.
FBI and CIA now will operate as a private Democratic death squad, an American Tonton Macoute, assisted by censorship of big tech.
Had Ted Cruz been elected, he would have earned a second term. The Trump practice of personal destruction destroyed Cruz, but it prevented him from ever winning a second term.
Ironically, Trump’s behavior CREATED OPEN BORDERS–it only took a second term failure.
Yo habla Espanyol?
If the news media was even to close even keeled and fair, Trump would win in a landslide.
The real reason for the problem, is our university education system. 50 years of communist and socialist indoctrination, which moved into the High school level and now grade school.
Baby Boomers are no longer the largest voting block. They failed to reigh in and control the socialist takeover of the education system, and failed to train up their kids in the way they should go, and now it’s most likely over.
It will be a slow slide, but when Biden is pushed out, Harris will excelerate the slide into totalitarianism. 25 trillion in debt, will become 50 trillion and we will be Argentina, Venezuela, Zimbabwe, who by the way score better on math and science tests, than American crumb crunches.
By ammo and other trade goods.
Hopefully Trump pulls it out, if not, not enough TP, will be the least of your worries 😬

You are full of shit. I worked in the public school system for over 35 years in Madison and your claim that there was a communist and socialist indoctrination at the high school level is pure speculation with no basis in fact.
At NO TIME did I ever experience what you are claiming. Not once!!!

“you’re a dyed-in-the-wool career Lefty” First of all, how would you know and secondly these are the kinds of post about me that is starting to getting me to lose respect for my “crazy uncle” No matter how often you get out your Thesaurus, or how “creative” you use it, I am not impressed. Maybe the Blaska “Groupies” but not me!!!!!!
“First of all, how would you know”

“I am not impressed.”
The Lefty doth protest too much, Gotchthinks…
No one believes you comrade because you relinquished all credibility once found out to be a RACIST.
Did we give up when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
Seriously though, Biden is senile, Kamala is incompetent, who controls these goofs is the question of the hour. I think Trump will pull this off and if I hear one more whine about his tweets……
If that is your worst complaint about the man in the face of all his accomplishments then pull your pussy hat down far enough to stifle something worse than a virus.
We need more Winter Warriors than Sunshine Patriots.

madisonexpate: Pearl Harbor was bombed by Imperial Japan on December 7, 1941.
Not by Germany. I’m sure you must know this.
“madisonexpate: Pearl Harbor was bombed by Imperial Japan on December 7, 1941.”

madisonexpate: The Pearl Harbor/Germany thing must be your subtle sense of humor. I catch on eventually.
Thanks Dave. I needed this information.
“A more even-keeled Trump would have won this thing, Covid pandemic or not.” What I said a few days ago…. “Shoulda/coulda been a shoe-in….
BUT: Looks like Trump may lose 2 of the 6 states, but if he wins the right four, he’s in. I’ve been checking by county on the remaining states and while WI may be lost, no matter. Fingers crossed.

I just got done reading this article about Abraham Lincoln and the Book of Job. https://www.americamagazine.org/faith/2020/10/27/abraham-lincoln-book-of-job-civil-war-bible-united-states.
The author of the article closes it by saying the following: “In the end, submitting before the will of God, in all its power and mystery, Job is at peace. For Lincoln, that wisdom was hard-earned, coming in the midst of one of the most difficult periods of his life and the nation’s history. But in one brief moment of respite in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln too found peace.”
If Biden wins, he will not be President for long as I think it can be shown even now that he has some sort of dementia. That leaves Kamala Harris taking over as President and that would make Nancy Pelosi the Vice President.
Having these two in as President and Vice President will in my humble opinion, lead to very, very dark times ahead.
Not because they are women; it is because both of them are socialists.
And socialists do not like freedom.
I think that in times like these we need to admit it is not in our power to change the world, (as I have a hard enough time changing my own life), give in and let God’s will be done.
Fight the good fight. Always fight the good fight for what is right. But always at all times let God’s will be done.
