Duncan says that Trump's behavior after the election made him glad the former president had lost.

"Looking back, perhaps his flaws and consequent loss were our saving grace," Duncan writes. "We discovered that all the policy wins in the world couldn't compensate for other shortcomings."

Duncan's book, which comes out next week and was obtained exclusively in advance by The Associated Press, mixes his take on what went wrong with Trump and the aftermath of the 2020 election with his ideas for how the GOP might welcome back the moderate, college-educated suburban voters who have drifted away from the party. He says he wants to be not anti-Trump, but post-Trump.

"I will not worship him," Duncan writes. "I will not excuse his excesses. I won't believe his lies. I won't mimic his tone. I won't disingenuously pander to voters he's misinformed. And I certainly won't mislead my constituents because he wants me to."

This traitor is not running for re-election because he knows he will surely lose the primary.

He repeatedly said that there was nothing skewed about the ballots and refused to admit that there were late night ballot dumps.

Yes his reasoning is utter nonsense. He is claiming that there may have been fraud in some states but just not in his state. Then Georgia Republicans like Kemp and Raffensperger will say "we didn't see any fraud either. Maybe it went on in other states though". It's just a typical misdirection strategy to buy time.

Yes the Democrats harassed Trump for years with the fake Russian interference hoax but McConnell and these spineless RINOs are willing to overlook that. Even as the Biden administration terribly mishandled the withdrawal from Afghanistan, killing Americans and leaving weapons for terrorists. Children have been deprived of a normal childhood because of school closures and mask mandates. People are losing jobs because of unreasonable and unconstitutional vaccine mandates but the GOP is silent on that too. Biden has already done a lot of harm in less than a year but despite all that, the Republicans in Congress are not showing any outrage.

Obviously he voted to 'object' because he knew the rest of the RINOs would certify Biden anyway. His vote was meaningless. It was a charade.

How on earth could Trump get 200k more votes than in 2016, getting the best Republican performance in Wisconsin but still lose because it still wasn't enough to beat the super popular senile old pedophile who hid in his basement and didn't hold a single rally?

The Uniparty was against Trump from day 1. They did not want him re-elected. They sabotaged his agenda and set him up to fail. Not a single person could be trusted. Trump was all alone against the swamp.

Ron Johnson himself said that his best win was with 1.5 million votes in Wisconsin. Then he said that Republicans rarely exceed that while admitting that Trump got 1.6 million votes.

If Republicans are outperforming their previous best vote share, then how on earth can Trump lose the state while getting 200,000 more votes than in 2016.

Was Biden so well-liked that even the best Republican performance wasn't enough to beat him? I find that very hard to believe.

The GOPe will probably just flood the field with fake MAGA candidates and split the vote, allowing another RINO to win the primary.

How does it even make sense that 51,000 people voted for Republican congressional candidates but not President Trump? Trump massively increased turnout all over the country and got more votes than any other Republican presidential candidate in history. But despite that, somehow Wisconsin has people who excitedly voted Republican for every other office except the presidential race?

This is how McConnell gets Senate Republicans to resist Biden? By demoralizing the base and refusing to acknowledge ballot dumps and other shady events?! Instead of bringing up impeachment, they now have accepted Biden as a legitimate president.

Democrats obstructed Trump for FOUR whole years but we have Republicans surrendering in less than a year.

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp is allocating $6 million to get more healthcare staff and will deploy up to 2,500 national guards to help manage patient flow, parking and converting rooms into hospital beds.

“The numbers don’t lie,” Kemp said. “95% with COVID have not been vaccinated.”

While Emory doctors say vaccine mandates in places like schools and businesses reduce outbreaks, Kemp said he won’t issue a mask mandate but is urging people to get vaccinated.

Kemp issued a vaccine holiday on Friday, Sept. 3 for state employees to get vaccinated and said people who had the shot can take an extra day off and enjoy a four-day Labor Day weekend. He’s also offering a $150 gift card or $480 in health credits for state employees who us the state’s benefit program.

Is $150 worth the risk for anyone to get the vaccine?

We can't save everyone in the world. Maybe some of them can be granted refugee status but definitely not thousands of people. There are already enough 'migrants' coming in from the border.

Here's more from this Dr Cobia:

"A few days later when I call time of death,” continued Cobia on Facebook, “I hug their family members and I tell them the best way to honor their loved one is to go get vaccinated and encourage everyone they know to do the same.”

“They cry. And they tell me they didn’t know. They thought it was a hoax. They thought it was political. They thought because they had a certain blood type or a certain skin color they wouldn’t get as sick. They thought it was ‘just the flu’. But they were wrong. And they wish they could go back. But they can’t. So they thank me and they go get the vaccine. And I go back to my office, write their death note, and say a small prayer that this loss will save more lives.”

More than 11,400 Alabamians have died of COVID so far, but midway through 2021, caring for COVID patients is a different story than it was in the beginning. Cobia said it’s different mentally and emotionally to care for someone who could have prevented their disease but chose not to.

“You kind of go into it thinking, ‘Okay, I’m not going to feel bad for this person, because they make their own choice,’” Cobia said. “But then you actually see them, you see them face to face, and it really changes your whole perspective, because they’re still just a person that thinks that they made the best decision that they could with the information that they have, and all the misinformation that’s out there.

“And now all you really see is their fear and their regret. And even though I may walk into the room thinking, ‘Okay, this is your fault, you did this to yourself,’ when I leave the room, I just see a person that’s really suffering, and that is so regretful for the choice that they made.”

“All these kids are about to go back to school. No mask mandates are in place at all, 70% of Alabama is unvaccinated. Of course, no kids are vaccinated for the most part because they can’t be,” Cobia said. “So it feels like impending doom, basically.”

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey had a few choice words for the "unvaccinated folks" in the state and blamed them for the rise in Covid-19 cases.

"Folks are supposed to have common sense," she told a reporter in response to a question about what it's going to take for people to get vaccinated.

"But it's time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It's the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down," she continued.

Alabama has the lowest vaccination rate in the country with only 38 percent of its population receiving at least one dose. According to state statistics, 31 percent were fully vaccinated as of Tuesday. Over the past two weeks, the rolling average number of daily new coronavirus cases in the state was up by 694 or 573 percent.

“Almost 100 percent of the new hospitalizations are with unvaccinated folks," Ivey said. "And the deaths are certainly occurring with the unvaccinated folks. These folks are choosing a horrible lifestyle of self-inflicted pain.”

She told reporters that she's done her best to fight the virus but "can't make you take care of yourself."

The governor's comments come days after a doctor in the state said she has seen young, healthy people being admitted to the hospital with serious Covid infections.

"One of the last things they do before they’re intubated is beg me for the vaccine," Dr. Brytney Cobia wrote on Facebook. "I hold their hand and tell them that I’m sorry, but it’s too late."

"I think you should be vaccinated," Republican Rep. James Comer of Kentucky later pleaded to viewers on CNN Wednesday. "It's not too late."

"These shots need to get in everybody's arm as rapidly as possible, or we're going to be back in a situation in the fall that we don't yearn for, that we went through last year," McConnell said Tuesday. "I want to encourage everybody to do that and to ignore all of these other voices that are giving demonstrably bad advice."

"I had the antibodies but ultimately with this new Delta variant you're seeing, I've toured a lot of hospitals in the last few weeks and you're seeing the cases go up," Steve Scalise said on Fox on Wednesday, pointing out that the overwhelming majority of people who are getting hospitalized for Covid-19 are not vaccinated

"I've always felt it was safe and effective." CNN reported that Scalise received his first vaccine shot Sunday.

Sen. Richard Burr, a Republican from North Carolina and the ranking GOP member of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, said he makes his vaccine status a topic when he's talking to constituents. "What I tell them is, if you don't want to go to the hospital and you don't want to die, get a vaccine," Burr said.

Suddenly all the RINOs in Congress are insisting that everyone should get the vaccine.

Yes even the vaccinated can still get infected. Even with the vaccine, there's no guarantee that you are safe from the next variant of the virus. The antibodies produced by the vaccine also don't last a year.

So does that mean we have to keep getting booster shots every year until the pandemic ends? It just seems illogical and too much of a hassle. But Big Pharma will be making billions and politicians like McConnell would want to stay on their good side...

Now even McConnell is forcing everyone to take the vaccine.

Referring to those who oppose the coronavirus vaccine, the Kentucky Republican said people should “ignore all of these other voices that are giving demonstrably bad advice.”

The Republicans who signed Wednesday’s statement are Sens. Richard Burr, of North Carolina; Bill Cassidy, of Louisiana; Susan Collins, of Maine; Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina; Lisa Murkowski, of Alaska; Rob Portman, of Ohio; Mitt Romney, of Utah; Mike Rounds, of South Dakota; Thom Tillis, of North Carolina, Todd Young, of Indiana, and Jerry Moran, of Kansas.

The Democrats who joined them are Sens. Chris Coons, of Delaware; Maggie Hassan, of New Hampshire; John Hickenlooper, of Colorado; Mark Kelly, of Arizona; Joe Manchin, of West Virginia; Jeanne Shaheen, of New Hampshire; Kyrsten Sinema, of Arizona, and Mark Warner, of Virginia. Sen. Angus King, a Maine independent who caucuses with Democrats, also signed the statement.

These are the GOP Senators who were quick to compromise with Biden. During Trump's term in office, were there any Democrats who compromised with him on anything? How quickly the GOP forgets.

It's hard to say who actually won, considering that she and Kemp both play the rigging game with Dominion. Neither of these traitors deserves to win.
