Mr. President, it’s time to end this dark charade. We’re one week away from an enormously important moment for the next four years of our country. On Jan. 5, two runoff races in Georgia will determine which party will control the Senate — whether Joe Biden will have a rubber stamp or a much-needed check on his agenda. Unfortunately, you’re obsessed with the next day, Jan. 6, when Congress will, in a pro forma action, certify the Electoral College vote. You have tweeted that, as long as Republicans have “courage,” they can overturn the results and give you four more years in office. In other words, you’re cheering for an undemocratic coup.

I'm surprised and disappointed with the NY Post.

Well. We’ve known the direction they were heading. They have now confirmed it. I would hope someone would reveal the agenda and minutes of the meeting that took place before this went to print. This is a desperate move. The Left is in meltdown.

And gives us a heads-up on what to expect of the new administration and where the are pushing (not leading) the country. If ya gotta go Sir - go with a loud bang of warning.

#6: I am afraid that the Constitution has been gone for a long time. Somehow the phrase "compelling interest" got snuck into the Constitution, so the 2nd Amendment went from "shall not be infringed", to "may be infringed whenever any government entity claims a compelling interest to do so". The Supreme Court has become a worthless travesty.

Just an observation but I thought actively insulting your fellow posters was forbidden here. "A salon, not a saloon" was the phrase I remember reading many years ago. One poster has been quite insulting since the election. "Lickspittle", a notably little used word in modern speech, is their favorite insult it seems as they have used it a few times. That is indeed an insult as it means fawning minion, toady, bootlicker. That was the only reason it stuck in my head and I noticed the trend. If insulting trolls is the new trend here, I can find other places to get my news.

Thank you, #19, for expressing exactly my sentiments. I'm not sure what's going on here lately, but it's disconcerting at the very least. I've been hoping said poster would at least be chastised by the moderators, but it seems he/she/they are getting a pass. I come to this forum for the interesting, thoughtful, fair, and civil commentary and reflections. I do not come here to swim with trolls.

Not so fast, NYP. I notice the President appears to be extremely focused, yet very relaxed these days. This can mean three things: 1) he knows the joint session of congress will reverse the EC elector outcome and declare him the EC winner or the 12th Amendment is invoked and he is declared the winner, 2) Trump has decided to throw in the towel for 2020 and accept the fraud, but, run for re-election in 2024, or 3) he has decided to part from politics and return to private life. Given what I know about him and his character, his political career is not over.

A Chicago rabbi has called on social service agencies to help a mother who has been accused of leaving her seven children alone inside a vacant Humboldt Park apartment.Rabbi Michael Ben Yosef, president of Tikkun Chair Inter-National, held a news conference Saturday afternoon outside the Circuit Court of Cook County, where the mother, Jessie Hunt, made her first court appearance. Chicago police arrested 31-year-old Hunt after officers discovered seven children inside a vacant apartment unit during a well-being check at approximately 4 p.m. Friday in the 700 block of North Trumbull, authorities said.(Snip)Calling for empathy for Hunt's situation, Yosef said she needs help from social services instead of potential jail time.

Proposed changes to the rules of the House of Representatives would “honor all gender identities” by eliminating such specific terms as mother and father, son and daughter, and aunt and uncle. Instead, only gender-neutral terms such as “parent,” “child,” “sibling” and “parent’s sibling” would be allowed in the text of the House rules, according to the proposed changes. The proposed changes — which also include the establishment of a House “Office of Diversity and Inclusion” — will be voted on after the House convenes Sunday for the new 117th Congress. Another rules change would prevent Republicans from amending a bill at the last minute, the Washington Examiner reported.

State public health regulators have recorded 605 deaths among residents of long-term care facilities, assisted-living centers and other congregate care sites over the past week, according to data posted Friday.
