A information to Trump supporters
I’m here to remind people who voted for Trump that you have a decision to make, if you have not previously. I know, not my company to preach, but I’m a retired professor and I cannot help it.
The conclusion is whether to aid Trump in his ongoing lawful maneuvers to overturn items, along with his promises of massive voter fraud and “I won the election by a landslide,” or to guidance our condition electoral methods, our justice department, and our point out and federal judicial methods — our third branch of governing administration — in their attesting to a cost-free and good election that Trump misplaced.
It is a pretty apparent option, tough to equivocate, and I do not envy you having to make it. And, you can definitely convey to me to butt out, considering the fact that I did not vote for Trump. But I’m just the messenger. And I bring with me a message of hope: that individuals who opt to make a decision here will make 1 that they can live with, in certainty and ease and comfort, for the foreseeable long term.

It is time for a change
As the new year fast methods I have to say “the excellent, the bad and the ugly” hits the nail like a Barry Bonds household run.
First, the very good information: Our intrepid young congressman, Josh Harder, has been appointed to the Appropriations Committee. Which indicates we have a man with Valley clout in Washington after decades of stepchild standing.
The bad and the hideous revolve close to new problems about two Bee editorials. Initially, a person complained about The Bee’s suggestion that the Republicans could pick additional wisely fairly than selling a Trumpish character like Howze. How incorrect was it to propose there are far more experienced people today in the the local area than Howze? He simply just would have come to be the fifth Republican lout from California to join in Trump’s despicable try to overturn Biden’s election.
The second criticism relates to Mr. DeMartini vacating the point out, a gentleman entirely insensitive to the blight of the much less fortuitous, who appreciated accumulating wealth, and who desires to acquire it all with him in other places now.
Very good time for a improve, and an equitable voice for us all. Thank you, Josh, for returning property to help.

Give up buying on president
I subscribe to The Bee for the reason that I like to read through local news. I am so exhausted of your berating President Trump. He did not run for the dollars or electric power. He really cares about the folks and the way our country would seem to be likely. He is not your regular politician and several just simply cannot stand it.
This election was fraudulent. President Carter prolonged ago stated that mail-in ballots open the door to fraud. The president has had to endure destructive stress from Day 1.
I hope our nation, the nation I really like, can endure the subsequent several years. I am a proud retired trainer who taught kids to appreciate and regard the Usa even while it is not great. It however is the most effective in the planet. Individuals die to get right here due to the fact of flexibility and option.

He lost reasonable and sq.
It appears that Roger Stone’s “stop the steal” movement of 2016 was so profitable at elevating dollars from ambiguous resources to be applied in equally ambiguous manners, that he has reinvented it this calendar year. It has actually been a gold mine for the Trump family members, as supporters have donated around $200 million without having looking through what the good print says. Men and women can toss their dollars away any way they desire, and there are a good deal of con artists keen to take it.
I do have one issue. When an incumbent POTUS is presiding over the greatest deficit in history — 20 million unemployed People in america less employment than when he took office an exceptionally improperly handled pandemic, which he admitted in February to its true risk the worst cyber-attack on our governmental businesses in heritage (naturally from Russia) the gutting of health care for tens of millions of men and women inventive approaches to suppress the vote a trade war, causing bankruptcies and suicides amongst our farmers the most lies, misinformation, and conspiracy theories in our country’s historical past a entire disdain for science and details and disregarding his Constitutional oath — why is it so surprising that over 81 million people voted versus him? Appears to be like widespread feeling, not thieving.

Zwahlen for Modesto mayor
Modesto voters spoke loudly in November when they propelled Sue Zwhalen to the top rated of the listing of mayoral candidates, signaling that they feel it is time for metropolis govt to move ahead without retribution, anger or rancor. Sue is fully commited to foremost with confidence and optimism, sending a clear information to city employees and stakeholders alike that the feuds of the previous are around. Allow us give Modesto a refreshing get started.

For therapeutic, vote Zwahlen
Modesto’s subsequent mayor will acquire place of work in the throes of a pandemic that has devastated our economy and ruined our belief in elected leaders. Our new mayor must be able to credibly set the tone for made up of the virus and persuasively advocate for sensible distribution of the vaccine we all know is coming shortly.
I imagine Sue Zwahlen is the appropriate option for the instances. Sue trusts science to issue the way toward restoration, and her commitment to a wholesome local community will not conclusion with the pandemic. Sue understands we simply cannot prosper as a neighborhood until finally we tackle the bad top quality of the air we breathe. Her deep roots in the ag group and her knowledge in health treatment give her a crystal clear understanding of what requirements to be completed. Through her 40-12 months career as an ER nurse she witnessed to start with hand the affect that soiled air has on bronchial asthma victims, specifically children.
I have known Sue my complete daily life and I am self-confident that she will do her ideal to enable Modesto heal from the consequences of pandemic and conflicts in Metropolis Corridor.

It’s very good to know that the Heritage Foundation doesn’t ordinarily weigh in on congressional treatment but feels obligated to defend the Senate filibuster rule in get to boost outrage and raise Republican turnout in the Ga runoff elections. Evidently they are only accomplishing so to secure democracy, a principle that the the vast majority of the Republican occasion is possessing some difficulty with with regard to the Nov. 3 election.
The U.S. Senate is presently a deeply undemocratic establishment, as is to a lesser degree the U.S. Dwelling. In the recent Congress, Democratic senators represented about 30 million much more Us citizens than did the Republicans, but experienced 4 less users. And then there is the Electoral College or university.
If the Heritage Foundation wishes to shield democracy, let’s figure out a way to modify these 18th Century anachronisms to a thing much better suited to a genuine democracy.
