It makes me sick that Barrett and Republicans keep invoking RBG's rule .

Lee is ridiculous and the only people talking about religion and the late Ginsburg are the republicans.  Not the democrats.  Hypocrisy runs deep in this hearing and people have to realize their views never reflected the marvelous Justice Gingsburg.    She is evasive and trying to dazzle them with bullshit and evasion which is clearly…

KellyAnne makes an appearance in a Biden ad

which given that polling is showing people in Wisconsin seem to trust Biden more than Trump on public safety issues might make this very pertinent: x It was only a matter of time until @JoeBiden turned @KellyannePolls’ words into an attack ad: pic.twitter.com/3lE6m8nmPv— Andrew Solender (@AndrewSolender) September 2, 2020 < p class=”is-empty-p”>

MA-Sen: AOC Makes The Case For Re-Electing Sen. Ed Markey (D) In New Ad

I appreciate Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D. NY-14) doing this for U.S. Senator Ed Markey’s (D. MA) re-election campaign: x YouTube Video Ocasio-Cortez, who endorsed Markey in his reelection fight against Representative Joseph P. Kennedy III in September, narrates the entire 30-second spot, describing the 74-year-old Markey as the progressive “champion” that America needs to solve…

Trump at West Point makes yet another speech and two-hands a glass of water

Rutherfraud B. Trump’s second term will doom any third Reconstruction, but before then, military ceremonies prop up his uses of the armed forces in political campaign stunts. Bringing cadets back to campus was only designed for another IMPOTUS* photo-op, and some self-congratulations: For the first time in 70 years, we established a new branch of the…

Trump hopes that “leading the world in testing” makes you forget the US leads the world in deaths

81,000 people are still dead and Trump defaulted to his usual bigotry and disinformation blather today in yet another presser-trainwreck. “‘The numbers are fucking terrible,’ another former West Wing official said. ‘There’s massive anxiety in the GOP that he’s gonna take them all down with him.’” https://t.co/bCtKHGlQNH — Daniel W.

Trump makes it clear: Corporations First, People an afterthought

This is what the new slavery looks like, antiseptic slavery. When one reads between the lines of every Donald Trump press conference, it is clear he is all about making corporations whole; people damn. Hell, he is even willing to risk the lives of Americans by having them go back to work above and beyond…

Moscow Mitch Makes Mistake [Updated: He Admits He Doesn't Have the Votes]

Nicholas Fandos writes in the New York Times impeachment liveblog that “There might be a strategic reason the trial is slowing down,” pointing out that the Trump defense has slowed its delivery, and that the question period (16 hours total) may be stretched out over two days. This will push the vote over witnesses to…

Trump's Is an Incompetent Crook – and That Makes it Worse

The mess we’re in didn’t start with IMPOTUS. The GOP and the 1% have been working for years to turn our democracy into an oligarchy where the rule of law is at best a platitude that they pay lip service to. Their plan has always been to keep the Republican party in power and keep…

Trump makes MLK Jr. Day about him, because of course he does

Sigh. x It was exactly three years ago today, January 20, 2017, that I was sworn into office. So appropriate that today is also MLK jr DAY. African-American Unemployment is the LOWEST in the history of our Country, by far. Also, best Poverty, Youth, and Employment numbers, ever. Great! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January…
