President-elect Joe Biden will roll back some of President Trump's most controversial policies and address "four overlapping and compounding crises" in his first 10 days in office — the pandemic, the economic downturn, climate climate and racial inequity.Driving the news: That's according to a memo from Biden's incoming Chief of Staff Ron Klain Saturday.

Was not a big Trump fan in general. He could have done more and he focused on banter with celeb's and media more than action. His policies were the actions and they were not all but mostly decent policies. His ACTUAL action was his only good part and they seek to undo that?

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) called on his Republican Party to rebuild itself and "repudiate the nonsense that has set our party on fire" in an in an op-ed for The Atlantic Saturday on the QAnon conspiracy theory.Why it matters: Many of the mob involved in the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riots wore items signaling their support for the far-right QAnon and a prominent member of the cult was among those arrested following the siege.Get smarter, faster with the news CEOs, entrepreneurs and top politicians read. Sign up for Axios Newsletters here. * Several Republicans who ran for Congress last year publicly supported or defended the QAnon movement or some of its tenets — something Sasee noted in his op-ed, headlined "QAnon is Destroying the GOP From Within." * Sasse blames the violence on "the blossoming of a rotten seed that took root in the Republican Party some time ago and has been nourished by treachery, poor political judgment, and cowardice."Driving the news: Sasse wrote in his op-ed that "until last week, many party leaders and consultants thought they could preach the Constitution while winking at QAnon." * "They can't," he added. "The GOP must reject conspiracy theories or be consumed by them. Now is the time to decide what this party is about." * Sasse criticized House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) for not denouncing QAnon supporter Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) when she was running for Congress in 2020. * "She's already announced plans to try to impeach Joe Biden on his first full day as president," Sasse wrote. "She'll keep making fools out of herself, her constituents, and the Republican Party."Worth noting: Sasse said before the House impeached President Trump for a second time he'd consider "definitely consider" any articles of impeachment against him over his conduct and comments at a rally before the riots. * The Nebraska senator criticized Trump's embrace of QAnon supporters last August, warning that Democrats could "take the Senate" this "will be a big part of why they won." * Months later, the Democrats went on to win control of the Senate.The bottom line: Sasse wrote that his party faces a choice when Trump leaves office: "We can dedicate ourselves to defending the Constitution and perpetuating our best American institutions and traditions, or we can be a party of conspiracy theories."Go deeper: * The Capitol siege's QAnon roots * House freshmen at war after Capitol siegeSupport safe, smart, sane journalism.

In a way, not wrong. The more the RNC seems to be anti-Trump and for changing laws in ways that are against it's citizens and it's voting block the more R voters look for hope. Q preached hope and "sit back and trust the plan"

Q has claimed many things going on that were not, it's bogus. But it does touch on things we all know are wrong and are happening that Government turns a blind eye to. If the RNC was not so antithetical to what they speak people would not be looking to Q and 3rd parties and crazy internet troll personalities.

The RNC is actively losing it's voters to Q more than Q doing anything to take their base away from them. I mean Q has not even posted in a long time and from a week before the vote till now his coupe posts were pretty meaningless. RNC does need to DO something for it's voter base, if not then It may not even be Q but it may be Apathy and distain for the system that lose them all their voters

Joe Biden is claiming the rioters that stormed the U.S. Capitol would have been treated differently if they were Black Lives Matter protesters.

Yeah BLM was not unarmed getting shot in the neck. BLM was told by Harris to burn it all down and even if Biden wins don't stop.....could you imagine if trump said "The election was stolen, burn it all down and after I'm gone don't stop".

If that Air force girl was BLM/Amtifa the media would be saying her name. Hell the left did this exact same ting during the Kavanaugh hearings and they were brave women and none were shot. So they were treated different.

The world's most influential leaders and thinkers share their ideas for what the future should look like in a post-coronavirus world.

Way so great reset is endorsed by time magazine or it is fake conspiracy theory. Can't be both. If we share this time list of article on Facebook do we get cheered for sharing time magazine or banned for acting like the great reset is real?

With vaccine rollouts underway, humanity looks set to win the fight against the coronavirus. But some elites planning a post-coronavirus ‘Great Reset’ don’t want to go back to normal. Here’s what they have planned instead.

Wow solid article. Not too short but not trying to be a small book, pretty organized and well written. I know nothing about Graham Dockery who wrote this article, but this article itself seems impressive and open about what we know. Well done.

SANDY SPRINGS, Georgia—The slogan for the Republican ticket in Georgia’s run-off elections, inescapable in TV ads and billboards and campaign buses around the state, is succinct: “Win Georgia, Save America.”But to many people backing that ticket, the candidates on it—the ones doing the actual saving—aren’t all that important. Some voters don’t even especially like them.“I feel alright about them,” said Jeremy Hillyard of Sens. David Perdue (R-GA) and Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), after casting a ballot for them at an early voting location in the Atlanta suburb of Sandy Springs on Wednesday evening.“Each side has its flaws,” Hillyard told The Daily Beast. “I’m voting more for gridlock than anything else.”A fair chunk of electoral politics is based on fear rather than inspiration. That’s certainly been true in the age of Donald Trump, where campaigns have often been defined on foreboding attacks about the opposition. In that vein, Georgia’s run-off elections are no different.Die-hard conservatives showing up to support Perdue and Loeffler have suggested that the candidates themselves are beside the point. At a recent rally outside Atlanta organized by the conservative group FreedomWorks, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), the head of the arch-conservative Freedom Caucus, cautioned that he didn’t mean the senators any disrespect before saying of them: “They are merely tools.”“We need them,” said Biggs, “to preserve this country.”To both sides, the stakes of Georgia’s run-off elections are so monumental as to make any of the candidates involved look small by comparison. Perdue himself has acknowledged this on the campaign trail.“It’s bigger than Kelly, it’s bigger than me, it’s even bigger than President Trump,” the senator said at a Wednesday campaign stop. “It’s bigger than all of us.”Loeffler Sinks to Last-Ditch ‘Child Abuse’ Accusations Against WarnockDemocrats say the same kinds of things. Like Republicans, they are most focused on winning control of the U.S. Senate in the Jan. 5 runoffs and giving President-elect Joe Biden a shot at passing his policy agenda.But Democrats have been more prone to say their candidates inspire them, and have emphasized the importance of candidates being not only a means to attaining the majority but people who understand, and represent, the party’s constituencies. Raphael Warnock, running against Loeffler, is the Black preacher at Atlanta’s storied Ebenezer Baptist Church. Jon Ossoff, running against Perdue, is 33 years old, and has made a point of targeting the youth vote. Democrats will need record turnout from both Black voters and young voters to capture both of Georgia’s Senate seats.Republicans may be as fired up about the Democratic candidates—just for different reasons. In interviews at early voting sites on Wednesday, more than a dozen GOP voters evinced little personal affinity for Loeffler and Perdue, but they could barely contain their aversion to Ossoff and Warnock. A win for Loeffler and Perdue may ultimately rest not on how much Georgians like them, but how much they dislike the other guys.“I honestly don’t care for the ones on the other side, and what they stand for,” said Alan Vincent, who was exiting a polling location in Douglasville, 20 miles west of downtown Atlanta. “Perdue seems to be a stand-up guy. I don’t know about Kelly. I just know that I don’t want Warnock and the other guy in there—I just don’t want them in there.”Those views may be a product of the Republican strategy to go scorched-earth on the two challengers. Outside GOP super PACs have dumped over $120 million in attack ads on Ossoff and Warnock, portraying them as far-left foot soldiers who would usher in a dark era of socialism, in which progressives like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) would call the shots. The most commonly quoted Democrat in these attacks isn’t either of the candidates—but Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who was filmed saying that if Democrats “take Georgia,” then “we change America!”The onslaught has clearly broken through to conservative voters, with many raising the claims advanced by the ads in explaining why they don’t like Warnock and Ossoff.Karen Gearhart, a 22-year-old student at the University of West Georgia in deep-red Carroll County, said she showed up to vote early on Wednesday in hopes of keeping Warnock and Ossoff out of the Senate. She cited Republicans’ claims that they are anti-police, though the Democrats have pushed back on that notion.“People like Jon Ossoff and Warnock, I don’t like them because of how they treat the police,” said Gearhart.Warnock, who entered the runoff largely untouched after Loeffler battled it out with Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) for a slot in the race, has received the brunt of the GOP’s most intense attacks. Campaign ads running constantly on Georgia’s radio and TV airwaves refer to him as a “radical,” and Loeffler referred to him as “radical liberal Raphael Warnock” no fewer than a dozen times during their Dec. 6 debate. Democrats have called these attacks racist, and cast them as part of a GOP strategy to generate fear among the party base over a Black candidate.GOP voters largely had more to say about Warnock than Ossoff. “Warnock is more of a radical. Ossoff, I can’t tell,” said Richard Sardykowski of Sandy Springs. “I don’t know if I believe him. Warnock scares me, Ossoff doesn’t scare me.”But the Democrats’ case against Loeffler and Perdue has also broken through, even among those who voted for the incumbents. Democrats’ main line of attack has centered on the senators’ financial dealings: both have come under scrutiny for conspicuously-timed stock trades at the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, which saved both of them millions of dollars.That narrative has stuck more closely to Loeffler, who, unlike Perdue, has not yet won an election in Georgia. She was appointed to the Senate in January after a career in business and as the owner of Atlanta’s women’s basketball team.Many voters knew little of this background, but a few did know about her stock trading—and held out the possibility it was, at the very least, sketchy, even if they voted for her.Luke Carlson, a 23-year-old from Carroll County, voted early for Loeffler because of his anti-abortion views. He said he hadn’t heard much about the senator—except for her stock trades. “I’ve only heard a lot of the sketchy stuff, when she dumped all her stocks,” said Carlson. “If it did happen, it’s kind of shitty.”Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, Profiting Off Pandemic Pain, Are the Ugly Faces of GOP CorruptionVincent, the voter from Douglasville, also expressed some trepidation about Loeffler. “I’ve heard some things about Kelly that I’d say I wouldn’t agree with,” he said. “Some of the ads, they talk about Kelly and how she was doing with money—I don’t know.”After eight weeks of non-stop campaigning, the deluge of TV ads, the calls and texts from organizers and postcards from out-of-state strangers, the prevailing emotion among many voters was exhaustion. For many, the existential framing of the race didn’t match up with their own feelings. And others aren’t looking to “save America,” just provide a check on Biden.To Jeffrey Dankewich, a resident of Carroll County, all four politicians in the race were, well, just that. “I’ve read up, of course” on the candidates, Dankewich told The Daily Beast as he exited a polling location. “As with any of ‘em—none are great.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

They are better than warnock and Assoff, but yeah voting for them had to be like most democrats NOT voting for Biden but voting against Trump.

You don't for for Loeffler or Perdue, you just vote against Warnock types cause they are worse.

If I lived in GA though I would not want to put effort into the vote.
