Since World War II, only two Incumbent presidents have not won reelection – Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush in 1992. Bush was really a third term, having succeeded Ronald Reagan. DONALD TRUMP will be the third president to be denied a second term. This week and next will be the most transformative two weeks in American politics for many reasons.
Republicans confirmed Judge Barrett to the Supreme Court just seven days before Election Day, and conservatives now have six out of nine justices that they can count on to reverse some of the gains made by liberals in the last fifty years. This move was political suicide. A few hours after judge Barrett confirmation, donations to Democrats poured in, and waves of young people are coming out to vote. Here are TRUENEWSBLOG predictions:
Democrats will win the White House and possibly take control of the United States Senate. Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, Republican from Kentucky, will lose his seat, so will Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the senate judiciary committee and Republican from North Carolina. Sen. Susan Collins, Republican of Maine, will also lose her seat even though she promised to vote against Judge Barrett’s confirmation, too little too late. The South will elect two US black Senators, Jaime Harrison from South Carolina and Mike Espy from Mississippi.
For the first 100 days of the Biden presidency, both moderates and progressives would push Biden to pack the Supreme Court. Democrats will seek to add four more justices to the court, making it 13 judges, seven liberal justices, and six conservatives. The right will practically declare war on the Biden administration with Trump supporters refusing to admit defeat even though Biden won the electoral College by a decisive margin. White supremacists will claim that the Dems stole the election. People like Candace Owen and Ice Cube will quietly fade away.
Biden will have a delicate game to play, trying to bring the country together while keeping progressive from high-jacking his administration.
Progressives, like AOC and newly elected Progressive Congressmen and women, will seek to hold a Biden administration hostage by forming their own crew to make demands on Pelosi in exchange for votes. The Green New Deal will be front and center. AOC will challenge Charles Schumer, and a new progressive movement fuels by Gen Z with money to match will scare the living shit out of moderate Democrats. The country will be more divided as the Tea-Party makes a comeback.
The Republican Party will be practically dead and in need of some serious soul searching. Biden will be diagnosed with dementia and will not resign as the administration try to keep this under wrap. Vice President Kamala Harris will be the first female president of the United States with Pete Buttigieg as her running mate. The next ten years will be interesting, indeed. One can expect more taxes, more regulations, and more millionaires and billionaires exiting the US to more tax-friendly places.
