President-elect Biden making Friday night address — ‘Protect Every Person’ rally Saturday in Westlake

After an excruciating Election Night and week of steadily growing vote counts for the Democratic challengers, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are planned to address the nation Friday night.

A scheduled hour for the “prime time” appearance has not been announced.

Vote totals Friday showed Biden and Harris winning Pennsylvania, putting the ticket over the 270 threshold required to claim Electoral College victory — though major media has been reluctant to declare winners in the race and in still un-called battlegrounds Georgia and Nevada given the blistering attacks leveled over early calls on Arizona.

The Trump administration campaign is also threatening legal actions and has hopes for recounts but most experts agree any reversal of the totals seen by Friday in the remaining states seemed highly unlikely.

 

Wednesday night, a rally in Pioneer Square featured several groups including Black Lives Matter organizers calling for every vote to be counted in the 2020 election. Saturday, groups will gather in Westlake for a “Protect Every Person” rally.

Just a bit of clarification – it’s the Trump campaign, not the Trump administration, that is filing lawsuits challenging the vote in several states. I don’t think even Bill Barr would touch those cases with a barge pole. (But it’s early in the day.)

It’s hard to believe Barr isn’t cooking up something, even though he’s (wisely) keeping his distance from the Giuliani/Don Jr. legal clown show. My guess is he’s waiting to see what state actually puts Biden over and will make his move there.

Did CHS already call the election? No other media has.

Ironic you’d have a protect every person rally where people are not wearing masks. What we need is to test every person or we are going to be stuck like this for another year.

Most did wear masks. My admittedly unscientific estimation was well above 90% compliance (contrast that with your typical Trump or Culp rally, where there’s never even 50% compliance). But those still resisting need to be reminded: it’s either masks for everybody or another lockdown that most of us can’t afford. I know, I know, MASKS SUCK — they fog your glasses, irritate the skin behind your ears and make all kinds of personal interactions much more difficult. But the only way out of this pickle is through it. Sorry.
