Well, Since You Asked Me: I Expect Florida To Turn Blue In 2018 (By John Dunson)

Key Take-Aways: I suspect that a lot of Puerto Ricans will continue to flock to Counties that make up the I4 Corridor. Thus, ensuring Orange and Hillsborough will pad their numbers. And that Pinellas should flip to Dems. I’d also keep an eye on Polk & Seminole flipping Democratic.

Dems only lost Seminole by 4K votes (109K – 105K). This would essentially lock up the I4 Corridor for Dems save for Volusia, which went for The IDIOT (142K – 108K)

But, the one that sticks out to me is Duval. This is where the 20% AA Disenfranchisement comes into play. The IDIOT won Duval by 6K votes. It’s literally unheard of for a Democratic Candidate to do that well in Duval.

In short, you flip the 29 Electoral Votes to Dems in Florida, it’s Game. Set. Match for Republicans. You combine it with AZ & TX, this explains why Republicans in Congress are acting the way they are.

To be fair, having piss poor Hispanic voter turnout HAS GOT TO CHANGE. The same with Asians.

In the 2016 Election, the turnout %’s were the following:

1. Whites = 65.3%
2. Blacks = 59.6%
3. Asians = 49.3%
4. Hispanics = 47.6%

To my Asian and Hispanic Peeps, DO BETTER. The burden can NOT be on Black People alone. No excuse for those Piss Poor Showings.

Well, Since You Asked Me: Did Paul Manafort Promise Banker White House Job? (Original Reporting by Tom Winter/Hallie Jackson/Kenzi Abou-Sabe for NBC News)

Key Take-Aways:  And the Strategic Strikes Continue.

I suspect this has everything to do with the new charges being filed under seal by Mueller for Manafort & Gates. It points to Manafort using his position with The IDIOT’s Campaign to work sweetheart deals for himself. I would be shocked if Mueller’s Team is not seeing this pattern throughout The IDIOT’s Team.  It appears the Campaign for them was essentially one long Con. Unfortunately, they got caught and folks are now beginning to sing like The Temptations.

This will increase the pressure on Mr. Manafort, However, I do not think it will matter to him. I think this is an indirect shot at Kushner and The IDIOT. I expect we will see more of these Strategic Strikes in the coming days.

Well, Since You Asked Me: Who Needs A Controversy Over The Inauguration? (Original Reporting by Chris Whipple)

Key Take-Aways: This will drive the News Cycle for the remainder of the week. Reince is singing like a Jay Bird. It’s a virtual guarantee that Mueller and Team vetted every word of this book. And the notes that Reince took will prove to be fatal to The IDIOT, Jared, and Ivanka.

Well, Since You Asked Me: The Revolutionary Power of Black Panther (Original Reporting by Jamil Smith)

If you are reading this and you are white, seeing people who look like you in mass media probably isn’t something you think about often. Every day, the culture reflects not only you but nearly infinite versions of you—executives, poets, garbage collectors, soldiers, nurses and so on. The world shows you that your possibilities are boundless. Now, after a brief respite, you again have a President.

Those of us who are not white have considerably more trouble not only finding representation of ourselves in mass media and other arenas of public life, but also finding representation that indicates that our humanity is multi­faceted. Relating to characters onscreen is necessary not merely for us to feel seen and understood, but also for others who need to see and understand us. When it doesn’t happen, we are all the poorer for it.

This is one of the many reasons Black Panther is significant. What seems like just another entry in an endless parade of super­hero movies is actually something much bigger. It hasn’t even hit theaters yet and its cultural footprint is already enormous. It’s a movie about what it means to be black in both America and Africa—and, more broadly, in the world. Rather than dodge complicated themes about race and identity, the film grapples head-on with the issues affecting modern-day black life. It is also incredibly entertaining, filled with timely comedy, sharply choreographed action and gorgeously lit people of all colors. “You have superhero films that are gritty dramas or action comedies,” director Ryan Coogler tells TIME. But this movie, he says, tackles another important genre: “Superhero films that deal with issues of being of African descent.”
