Stupid-ing Stupor and more — #NebDems News

President Trump and his allies — including the clownish pseudo-lawyer Rudy Giuliani — have now lost 34 lawsuits in which they claimed the election had been rigged and stolen from them.

They have won none. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

Trump and Co. have been rebuked, belittled and vilified.

The worst came over the weekend, as documented by Esquire scribe Charles Pierce.

We would be remiss if we did not acknowledge the best performance of the weekend, the Rolex Player of the Week in Democracy: U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann of Pennsylvania.

He takes home the hardware not simply because he ruled against the president*’s ludicrous attempt to disqualify every ballot cast in that state back to Benjamin Franklin’s, but because of the pure and unadulterated disdain with which he enlivened his ruling.

Judge Brann pretty definitively dismantled the legal theory presented by the president*’s Elite Strike Force—namely, “Hey, We’re Stupid-ing as Fast as We Can.”

It could have been worse. Brann could have glued all 37 pages of his decision to a polo mallet and beaten the president’s lawyers over the head with it, but, failing that, he really did all he could.


Although many of us have had to alter our usual Thanksgiving plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we at the NDP hope you are able to have a great holiday.

We want to thank you for your generous support throughout the past year, and especially for helping turn out the vote on Nov. 3 to elect Democrats.

We reclaimed CD2’s Electoral College Blue Dot — now known as Jomaha — to help send President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris to the White House!

We hope you enjoy your holiday and look forward to working with you to keep building our party.


Many Nebraskans are facing a difficult Thanksgiving this year.

We are grieving the lives of loved ones. Family-owned businesses have closed down. Tens of thousands Nebraskans have lost their jobs and will not be able to put food on the table.

So the Nebraska Democratic Party is partnering with Big Mama’s Kitchen to support our neighbors in need. For a limited time, your $50 donation will supply a Thanksgiving dinner to a local family.




You can help swing the balance of the U.S. Senate!

Two GOP incumbents, Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, are facing runoffs against Democrats: Jon Ossoff facing Perdue and the Rev. Raphael Warnock facing Loeffler.

If Ossoff and Warnock win, the Senate will become evenly split, 50-50, with Vice President Kamala Harris holding the tie-breaking vote.

You can do your part to help!


Nebraska’s Omaha-centric CD-2 is now Jomaha!

In part because CD2 gave the Biden-Harris team a precious electoral vote that helped pave the way to a hard-fought victory.

“Nebraskans can stand proud knowing we had a role in the historic moment of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris hitting 270 electoral votes,” said Nebraska Democratic Chair Jane Kleeb.


Join the nearly 14,000 Nebraskans urging Gov. Pete Ricketts to institute a mask mandate to save lives!
