Electoral College certification: Congress Republicans who will object

USA TODAY WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump continues to erroneously claim he won the election, and several Republican lawmakers say they plan to help fight the election results in the next step of the certification process. Though President-elect Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election, Trump and several of his allies have claimed, with virtually no evidence, that the election was fraudulent and have pledged to fight when Congress meets on Jan. 6 to formally count the votes of the Electoral College. Last month, states certified their Electoral College results, and Biden secured the election overall with 306 votes to Trump’s 232. Leaked call tapes and transcripts defined Trump’s presidency.

Zaius of Zaius Nation fame) There seems to be a consensus forming that Brett ‘Caveman’ Kavanaugh’s eff’ing relationship with the truth seems to be more of his White Male Privilege and less Friends With Benefits, but you know, FAKE NEWS! 1!!

A kindergarten nursery rhyme teaches kids to hide during school shooting. The policing of black Americans is racial harassment funded by the state. The rap group Public Enemy famously stated that “911 is a joke”.

The policing of black Americans is racial harassment funded by the state

But that was in 1990. These days 911 is dead serious. Anyone in the United States can dial those three numbers and summon people with guns and handcuffs to participate in their anti-black paranoia. It’s racial harassment, sponsored by the government and supported by tax dollars. When one calls 911 in New York City, the first question the dispatcher asks is “What is your emergency?” The people who call the police are not the main problem. This does not mean that it is acceptable: everyday racism is aggravating, health draining, and, for its survivors, labor intensive. The people who call the police can fill a black person with a productive rage or a corrosive kind of hate. The main problem is the response of the state. Black people are forced, by armed officers of the government, to justify their presence.

In recent cases, black people have offered excuses like “golfing”, “napping” and “moving”. Rinse and Repeat - by Ann Telnaes. May 1968: The Revolution That Almost Was - The NIB click 2x.

If you need evidence of the US retail sector’s precarious condition, consider that more than 9,000 stores closed last year, and another 12,000 are on the chopping block this year, according to commercial property firm Cushman & Wakefield.

The Cambridge Analytica scandal is confusing. This timeline will help

Despite a 4.2% rise in 2017 over the previous year, US retail growth is lumpy and clearly not firing on all cylinders. Every week brings gloomy news of bankruptcies or downsizings. Online sales, meanwhile, have been climbing, underpinning the sector’s overall growth. US retail is at a crossroads, with brands and retailers still trying to decide whether e-commerce is friend or foe. On one hand, e-commerce is killing traditional brick-and-mortar business, but on the other, you’ll have a hard time finding a company whose future growth strategy doesn’t rest on developing its online channels.

Donald Trump is wrong about wage trends

Among other topics, Trump discussed some of the economic achievements on his watch: "Wages are rising at the fastest pace in more than a decade, something that people have been waiting for, as you know.
