saddest days in American history[1]

[Posted on : 2021-01-09 by Alzibith Maggei] January 6 was one of the saddest days in American history. An incumbent president has incited a crowd of his supporters to attack the United States Capitol, where the Senate and the House of Representatives met in the constitutionally required joint session to count the votes of the constituency. Donald Trumps clear intention in urging this act of violence against the final act of the 2020 presidential election was to stop the counting procedure, thus gaining more time to escape the otherwise unavoidable election result.

This is as shameful as it sounds, but still its just one in a long line of embarrassing Trump acts before, during and after the November election. He lied repeatedly about what happened in those elections, convincing millions of honest and honest people that his opponents committed systematic fraud, in effect deceiving his own supporters. If there is evidence of this fraud, Trump has not yet turned it over to any federal or state judicial or administrative court. According to him, the anti-Trump conspiracy is so vast and so successful that it has left no evidence. Either that, or his campaign had the worst team of lawyers in Anglo-American legal history.

Kamala Harris v Mike Pence: Who won the VP debate?[2]

[Posted on : 2020-10-11 by Peter Winlo] Vice-presidential debates seldom shake up presidential races, and the face-off between Kamala Harris and Mike Pence on Wednesday night seems destined to be no different.

Both candidates had strong moments, and a few stumbles, over the course of the 90-minute affair. But as far as lasting memories go, they were few and far between.

If this was a match that showcased the futures of the Democratic and Republican parties, the real fireworks will have to wait for the coming years.

An unmemorable result, in and of itself, is good news for the Democrats and Joe Biden, who polls suggest are leading in the race. One more campaign set-piece in the books, and one step closer to election day. These are my takeaways from the debate.

Where does Joe Biden stand on key issues?[3]

[Posted on : 2020-10-10 by Peter Winlo] As the US faces challenges from coronavirus to racial inequity, his pitch is to create new economic opportunities for workers, restore environmental protections and healthcare rights, and international alliances.
Mr Bidens approach to tackling coronavirus, the most immediate and obvious challenge facing the country, is to provide free testing for all and hire 100,000 people to set up a national contact-tracing programme.

He says he wants to establish at least 10 testing centres in every state, call upon federal agencies to deploy resources and give firmer national guidance through federal experts. He says all governors should mandate wearing masks.
Mr Bidens broader economic policies, dubbed his "Build Back Better" plan, tries to please two constituencies that traditionally support Democrats - young people and blue collar workers.

He supports raising the federal minimum wage to $15 (£11.50) an hour - a measure that is popular among young people and that has become something of a totem figure for the party in 2020, and a sign of its move to the left. He also wants a $2tn investment in green energy, arguing that boosting green manufacturing helps working class union workers, who perform most of those jobs.
On criminal justice, he has moved far from his much-criticised "tough-on-crime" position of the 1990s. Mr Biden has now proposed policies to reduce incarceration, address race, gender and income-based disparities in the justice system, and rehabilitate released prisoners. He would now create a $20bn grant programme to incentivise states to invest in incarceration reduction efforts, eliminate mandatory minimum sentences, decriminalise marijuana and expunge prior cannabis convictions, and end the death penalty.
Though he does not embrace the Green New Deal - a climate and jobs package put forward by the left wing of his party - he is proposing a $1.7tn federal investment in green technologies research, some of which overlaps with the funding in his economics plan, to be spent over the next 10 years, and wants the US to reach net zero emissions by 2050 - a commitment that was made by more than 60 other countries last year. China and India, the two other biggest carbon emitters, have yet to join the pledge. The investments dovetail with his economic plan to create jobs in manufacturing "green energy" products.

How does the electoral college work?[4]

[Posted on : 2020-10-09 by Anita Bhosly] All 50 US states and Washington DC have a set number of "electors" in the electoral college – roughly proportionate to the size of each state.

Each state gets at least three electoral votes because the amount is equal to its total number of Senators and Representatives in the US Congress. Washington DC also gets three electoral college votes, meaning a total of 538 electors form the Electoral College.

California, the largest state, has 55 electoral votes, Texas, the next largest, gets 38. New York and Florida have 29 each.

All but two states – Maine and Nebraska – use a winner-takes-all system, so if you win the most votes in a state, you take its entire haul of electoral college votes.

To become president either candidate needs to win a majority of the 538 electors - i.e. 270 electors.

While the Constitution does not dictate that electors follow the popular vote, many US states have laws requiring them to do so. These laws have been challenged by electors voting for someone else on occasion, but in July, the US Supreme Court ruled that electors must follow the popular vote in states that have passed such a law.

The electoral college system does usually reflect the popular vote – presidents have won the electoral vote while losing the popular vote just five times in US history. The most recent instance was in 2016, when Donald Trump won the electoral college but Hillary Clinton, his Democratic opponent, won the popular vote.
