Democrat Warnock defeats Republican Sen. Kelly Loefflerin US Senate elections in Georgia

US Senate elections: Democrat candidate Raphael Warnock has defeated Georgia Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler in firmly watched runoff polls. 

“Tonight, we demonstrated that with trust, hard work, and the citizens on our side, anything is possible,” Warnock told supporters in an online speech. 

On Wednesday, Warnock, who is a 51 years old pastor at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta declared a historic victory. He becomes the state’s first Black senator by defeating Republican Kelly Loeffler.

As a pastor, he has worked for 15 years leading the Atlanta church where Martin Luther King Jr. also preached.

According to the AP, the focus presently shifts to the second election among Perdue and Democrat Jon Ossoff. The candidates have secured a tight competition and it was too soon to announce a winner. Under Georgia law, the trailing candidate could request a recount of votes if the margin of an election is fewer than or equal to 0.5 % points. 

However, if Ossoff wins, the Democrats will have full control over Congress, reinforcing President-elect Joe Biden as he plans to take office on 20th Jan. 

The two parties had invested a huge amount in Georgia in a quest for Senate. On Monday, Biden had campaigned in the state in support of Warnock and Ossoff.

“There were speculations that we won’t win this race, yet tonight we demonstrated that with hope, hard work, and the people’s support, the sky is the limit,” Warnock stated. 

Warnock said that he was honored by the confidence that the people of Georgia had shown in him and promised to work for the entirety of Georgia as a Senator, irrespective of who cast their ballot in favor of in this election race.”

Why America Is Better Off Without Trump Altogether

America Is Better Off Without Trump: As Donald Trump comes to know that he is not to resume office in the next session, he seems to have disappeared from the scene altogether. The result is that people have been left stranded without any solid leadership, at a time when America is seeing its worst case of medical catastrophe. The corona virus numbers continue to swell and there is no respite for the American public. 

The elect president Joe Biden is trying to set his stage and agenda as he takes over office at the White House. But meanwhile, the helm should have been held by Donald Trump, who seems to have out of sight and thinking of how to secure his own political fate. He did not seem to have addressed the nation after the daily toll of affected people rose to 2,879 deaths. Till last week, confirmed cases numbered 217,664 and over 100,000hospitalizations.

Sources confirm that Trump indeed has busied himself fundraising for his future political endeavours and happily also sowing seeds of doubt in the country’s democratic foundations. It is sad to see that indeed the American people had been fooled in selecting someone so spineless and selfish as Donald Trump, whose Trump’s Twitter feed, meanwhile, has focused almost entirely on making wild, false accusations of electoral fraud.

It is so surprise that, like a spoilt child, Trump has been speaking of Biden getting the credit for the vaccine dissemination that starts after the latter takes office in January. The attitude is completely unfit for a leader of a nation and his approach is shameful. 

Trump continues on his campaigns, throwing caution to wind and mocking fellow White House officials for using common sense approach to maintain hygiene and social distancing protocols.

Twitter suspends Pennsylvania Senator after election integrity hearing

Twitter suspends Pennsylvania Senator: The operations Twitter account of Pennsylvania Senator Doug Mastriano, who directed Wednesday’s election integrity recording, has been halted. Senator Mastriano of Pennsylvania’s 33rd District arranged and chaired the conference in the state’s Senate Thursday on election integrity that highlighted an appearance by President Donald Trump.

Conservative critic Jack Posobiec was the first to remark that Senator Mastriano’s campaign account had then been banned by Twitter after the hearing.  Apparently, there has been no reason provided as to why the Twitter account of the Senator was suspended from the Social Network as it happens to millions of users.

During the conference, Senator Mastriano had slammed the election chaos, which he said was completely by scheme. “We move heaven and earth with American dollars to secure elections in Iraq and Afghanistan and elsewhere. We can’t do it in our own state?” Mastriano said. “There’s people in Pennsylvania not interested in safe, secure elections.” Many personalities also asserted that they had beheld what appeared to be firm irregularities with the election. 

The GOP vote calculation observer Justin Kweder introduced a ground-breaking record in which he claimed that hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots were scored without any proper error. He emphasized that it was impossible for onlookers to see what the workers were doing in any position, due to the fact that operators had raised a barrier that they were required to be behind.

Ironically, Big Tech had also been invited out during the recording by Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York. Giuliani affirmed that Big Tech firms like Twitter and Facebook have banned conservatives and followers of President Trump because “it’s almost as if they’re afraid” that Americans will discover the realities.
