Bernie Sanders: Our Prometheus
If anything good comes out of this Congress it will be because of Bernie Sanders. Bernie is now the Chairperson of the Senate Budget Committee. More to say on this later. I do not know who to credit for the video below, but I am certain it was intended to be shared.
Good News - No Honeymoon for Sniffy Joe
A bit of good news has come to us in the midst of Joe Biden’s generally abysmal cabinet nominees. According to a report by Vanessa A. Bee at The Intercept Marcia Fudge was an inappropriate pick for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. But Marica Fudge knows she was funneled through a political tunnel to satisfy some lobby or favor owed. Nevertheless we trust Marica Fudge to get up to speed for the job and possibly do something, which has not been the case for decades. The Obama administation produced a report and not much else. Housing For All and Broadband For All are part of the Green New Deal and we need these as much as another windmill field.
But here’s the Good News: Nina Turner will run to take Marcia Fudge’s place in Congress in a special election. A date for the special election has not been set at the time of this posting. We will update this section as soon as we know the date. Tentative dates have been set for the primary and general election, but are dependent on Fudge’s confirmation.

Former Bernie Sanders National Co-Chair Nina Turner to Seek Congressional Seat Vacated by Marcia Fudge
CLEVELAND ~ Nina Turner daughter of Cleveland and public servant with extensive political career, today announced that she will seek the 11th Congressional District seat vacated by U.S. Rep. Marcia Fudge. Fudge was tapped by President-elect Biden to serve as secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Nina announced her candidacy during a December 15th Zoom call with supporters including actor and Bernie Sanders surrogate, Danny Glover; Newburgh-Heights Mayor Trevor Elkins; Akron City Councilwoman Tara Samples; Ohio State Senator Kenny Yuko; former Ohio State Senator Eric Kearney; and many others.
Nina Turner’s statement as candidate for Representative of Ohio’s 11th Congressional District:
“Most people know the persona, but I want to introduce and reintroduce the person. I am a wife, a mother, a sister, an aunt and friend. My career in public service is varied, having served in local and state government and also in higher education. My views are informed by my own experience and that of people I love. What I want the people of Akron and Cleveland to know is that I know what it means to be counted out. I am running to ensure the people of Akron and Cleveland are counted in. Like most parts of the country, Ohio has faced tough times. The pandemic has only made things worse. Now more than ever, Ohioans need an ally, a champion, and a friend – someone who will wake up everyday with a determination to right wrongs and promote a progressive agenda.”
Ohio State Senator, Sandra Williams:
“I have known Senator Turner personally and professionally. I know her character and her heart. She is an unrelenting advocate who has represented the Greater Cleveland area well. She has fought for justice at the local and national level, never forgetting her humble beginnings or her responsibility to the people of Cuyahoga County. I know our community will be well served with her in Congress.”
Former Ohio State Senator Erie Kearney:
“Nina Turner combines intellect with passion, and that combination will make her an excellent Congressperson. She will research every detail and then make an informed decision. She is emotive and inclusive of people who have struggled, have been treated unfairly and have been counted out. I know she will serve the Akron and Cleveland areas well.”
Ohio State Senator Kenny Yuko:
“During the fight against SB 5, Senator Turner and I battled in the trenches with our Democratic colleagues and our union brothers and sisters to protect the rights of working Ohioans. I have seen firsthand her passion and her dedication to the people she represents. I know she will do us proud as a member of the United States Congress.”
Senator Bernie Sanders:
“We need voices like hers in the U.S. Congress.”
“I’m gonna be out on the road helping Nina get that Congressional seat.”
“We’re going to go all in for mama Nina! Best believe!”
“I would love to see Nina Turner in Congress. She would fight so hard for us. For poor people. For people left behind by this cruel system and society. The United States is still in crisis, even with Trump leaving office. We need people with heart in the halls of power.”
“It’s hard to overstate what it would mean to have, not just a progressive champion, but a powerful, experienced, progressive movement leaders like Nina Turner in the U.S. House. Democracy for America is excited to endorse Nina Turner in the coming special election in Ohio’s 11th Congressional District because we know that in Congress she’ll continue to be who she’s always been – a loyal friend, an unyielding progressive ally. and our sister in our shared struggle for progress, justice, and equality.”
So, the Greater Evil lost the election. Now we’re stuck with the Lesser Evil and the Election isn’t completely over yet. There are appointments to be made – Ro Khanna to the Senate and his replacement in the House. And the two January 5, 2021 Georgia Senate run-offs. Hopefully this is important to Georgian voters because it sure is important to everyone else. Both Democrats are running against criminal-class Republicans.
Voters in Georgia can vote in this primary even if they did not vote in the November 3rd election. Anyone living in Georgia who will be 18 years of age on or before January 5th are eligible to vote in this run-off election. Early voting begins December 14th 2020 and goes on right up to the election date.
Here’s Ossoff blasting Purdue on his time as an elected official for Georgia:
Purdue refused to debate Ossoff a second time.
Warnock and Ossoff won their Senate elections in Georgia. Now we get to see how corrupt the system is, what liars and cheats both Biden and Harris are.
Welcome to Coyote News
I have been writing about the 2020 Election since 2018. At the point where I knew I’d be writing much more about the election and the candidates, and trying to help people navigate the process, I started this website. I volunteered and street canvassed for Bernie Sanders. I spent more on that than I did in actual donations - printing cards and flyers, handing them out to anyone and everyone who’d take them. All during the campaign I did not ask for donations; I did not want to divert one penny from Bernie’s campaign.
