Why Stacey Abrams still won’t concede

Original Article

Stacey Abrams lost her 2018 bid for the Georgia governorship last November in a contentious race against then-Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp. And despite acknowledging Kemp as the legal victor, Abrams has refused to officially concede the election. “Concession in the political space is an acknowledgment that the process was fair,” she told Yahoo News. “And I don't believe that to be so.” Abrams, the former minority leader of the Georgia House of Representatives, said she “certainly was very sad, depressed, angry” after her loss, and has maintained that her campaign “would have come to a successful conclusion” if

She won't concede because she believes she is entitled to power. In other words, she's a typical leftist. They seek power by any and all means. They don't care about elections, the Constitution, laws, or anything -- except to the extent they can be used as a means for power. Reminds me when "American Idol" had a black guy and a white girl as finalists. Never mind that many blacks have won American Idol -- it was "racist" when the white girl won. The voting system was "unfair". I've learned to ignore them.

I listened intently to what she said in the interview and found her remarks devoid of identifiable, actionable, defensible ideas beyond "play fair" and "do the right thing" cliches. She seems to believe that enforcing election law and maintaining clean voter rolls disenfranchises potential voters and is unfair. If so, she should strive to change election laws, not to complain about their enforcement.

I think Abrams decided after the returns came in that she would maximize her chances for the 2020 VP nomination (the real prize she seeks) by playing the "voter suppressed" victim. And that is what she has been doing for nearly a year. Had she conceded she would be stuck with the "loser" tag. But the "victim" designation, given the depraved nature of today's Dem party, makes her a viable player on the national level. A very clever strategy, really, if you have no morals or integrity.

Remember Sore-Loserman. They gave our country months and years of bitter division because they wouldn't acknowledge being beaten (even after they conceded, even after SCOTUS confirmed their loss). Jon Cary tried to suborn malfeasance by the Electoral College delegates by pleading that they ignore the vote tallies and vote for him. Then came the drama queen. After years of whining, Hillary still won't admit she ran an abyssmal campaign and lost what should have been a slam dunk with any presentable Democrat. Now comes Stacey Abrams, unwilling to admit she is now a political nobody, clinging to her self-image as the rightful heir to the gubernatorial throne. Compassionate onlookers should avert their gaze and walk on by - these losers are tormented souls.

Abrams claims she was "very sad, depressed, angry." Well, she was already angry, in addition to being large, black and unattractive with a chip on her shoulder. What a package. No wonder the voters didn't like her.

She may now want to concede, but she is totally conceited beyond any shadow of a doubt. The blow to her entitlement selfish self-centered ego has been too much for her. She can call Oprah and ask for a discount code for Weight Watchers. That might help.

Remember at the Presidential Debates when they asked then candidate Donald Trump if he would accept the election results if he lost as they were afraid he would not? The media ridiculed him! Now Stacey Abrams is doing exactly what the media accused Donald Trump of planning to do. Why don't they give her the same treatment? If it weren't for double standards, the media would have no standards at all!

Joe Biden’s third quarter fundraising numbers are out. And they are an ominous sign for the former vice president’s 2020 candidacy. According to Bloomberg, Biden told donors at a fundraiser in Palo Alto, CA that his campaign raised $15 million in the period from July-September. That number is down markedly from the $21.5 million he brought in during the second quarter. Biden’s third quarter haul also, notably, lags behind that of two of his rivals. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) brought in $25 million over the past three months, while South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg raised $19.1 million. Sen. Elizabeth

Have you ever sat down in a restaurant and felt instantly drawn to a particular dish on the menu? The reason might be something as simple as that you love the dish’s main ingredient, but it’s often more than that. It could be the item’s placement on the menu, its name, even whom you saw eating it as you crossed the restaurant. Understanding all the factors that attract us to certain foods is a growing area of research, with enormous potential for addressing something unexpected: climate change.

The great triumph of recent American politics is for the people of your fine country to have elected as president a man who is the precise embodiment of what supercilious Europeans think Americans are really like. Pig-ignorant, arrogant, jingoistic, contemptuous of foreigners, loud-mouthed, badly dressed and irredeemably bumptious. So consuming is the European antipathy toward Donald Trump — he’s never read a book! He eats steak with ketchup! — that it afflicts leading politicians across our continent, people who would be better advised to button it a while and show a little bit of diplomacy to the leader of the free world. But they can’t: the contempt always bleeds through.

MSNBC contributor Sam Stein asked House intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on September 17, nine days before the complaint was released to the public. "We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower," Schiff responded at the time, never mentioning that one of his committee staffers had directly spoken to the whistleblower -- and that the staffer "shared some of what the [whistleblower] conveyed" with Schiff, according to the New York Times. The New York Times says the staffer referred the whistleblower to a (Democrat-connected) attorney to help him file a formal complaint with the intelligence community inspector general.

For his part, Mr. Trump said Wednesday he was willing to go along with Democrats, but it’s not clear how far that cooperation will extend.

Because if Sanders lived under “Medicare for All,” things likely would not have gone as well. Sanders, along with every other Democrat pushing “Medicare for All” and its variants, constantly bleat about how the U.S. spends far more on health care but gets worse results than countries such as Canada or the U.K. But the quality measures – infant mortality and longevity – are notoriously unreliable for international comparisons.
