It is emerging that there was a grand scheme in place by the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo government to oust the Agbogbomefia of the Asogli State and President of Asogli Traditional Area in the Volta Region, Togbe Afede XIV, who contested to retain the National House of Chiefs presidency, but lost to the Paramount Chief of Sefwi Anhwiaso Traditional Area, Ogyeahohoo Yaw Gyebi II.

The heavyweight of the National Security apparatus, money, partisan politics, the Okyenhene, Amoatia Ofori Panin, are said to be the reasons the revered traditional ruler got removed from office, last Thursday and got replaced by the seventy-year-old Ogyeahohoo Gyebi II, who is also the President of the Western Regional House of Chiefs.

7 Long-Term Stocks to Buy with the Election Behind Us

InvestorPlace – Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips

Snowflakes. Soy boys. And other pejoratives, many of which are unrepeatable in polite company. These are some of the lesser grievances that liberals have had to endure during the four years of the Trump administration. Barring unlikely and bizarre circumstances, President-elect Joe Biden will take over the White House, leading to much joy among the left. In this exuberance, it’s tempting to configure your long-term stocks to buy based on the election results.

However, that would not be the wisest course of action. Don’t get me wrong — the transition to Democrats taking control of the executive office is wildly significant. As CNN reported, Biden plans to issue executive actions that will undo outgoing President Trump’s policies. Among them, controversial issues such as immigration reform will be top on the list. With such promised large-scale changes, of course it will

Trump election party draws scrutiny as guests including Ben Carson test positive

WASHINGTON — At least three top Trump administration or campaign officials have tested positive for COVID-19 after attending an election night watch party in the White House East Room.

The night – intended to mark a victory that never came – has become yet another symbol of the president’s cavalier attitude toward a virus that is ripping across the nation and infecting more than 100,000 people a day.

Even Fox News hosts aren’t buying Kayleigh McEnany’s attempts to spin a Trump campaign election suit

Faced with dwindling hopes for a electoral win, White House press secretary turned unpaid Trump campaign official Kayleigh McEnany struggled to explain the legal merits of her boss’ last-minute lawsuits in a Wednesday interview with Fox News hosts Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum.

Specifically, McEnany strained to justify the campaign’s attempt to join a lawsuit brought by Pennsylvania Republicans seeking to intervene in a state Supreme Court decision. That court order, handed down before the election, validated mail ballots with an Election Day postmark received by Friday, Nov. 6.

Citing the case’s proximity to the election, the U.S. Supreme Court let the order stand. In anticipation of a renewed challenge, state officials segregated their 3.1 million mail ballots between those received before and after the election.

“We believe the American people deserve answers, which is why we are in court currently fighting in Pennsylvania,” McEnany said. “They want to count

Richmond election yields progressive candidates, causes

RICHMOND — This city leaned a little more left this week after three City Council candidates supported by the Richmond Progressive Alliance appeared to pick up election night victories, as did a union-backed ballot measure that’ll change the way the city taxes businesses.

With about 180,000 votes left to count in Contra Costa County, the three council candidates had strong enough leads to declare victory in the city’s first district-based election.

One of them, incumbent Councilman Melvin Willis, held a commanding 57% lead to apparently retain his District 1 seat representing a northern portion of the city, against challenger Eleanor Thompson, according to Tuesday night’s semiofficial results. The county will release its latest tallies on Friday.
