Dems actually want to stop illegal migration from desperate people in

these countries. Republicans want the wedge issue of illegal immigration to thrive so they can kabuki theatre the border.

Tweet of the evening:


Authorities are not speculating. I should not be either but i heard someone

talk about tb in a historical report (they have done a walking tour of the national cemetery in ottawa that highlights those public employees who were either good or bad to the indigenous as part of the Truth and Reconcilliation process and someone who was considered an advocate complained about TB and how dangerous residential schools were in that regard back at the start of the 20th Century). That is all i know.

Here is an outake from the CBC story about the Beechwood Cemetery;

"There lay Dr. Peter Henderson Bryce, who, in a 1907 report to his bosses at the Department of Indian Affairs, warned of atrocious health conditions at residential schools in Western Canada, where the mortality rate among the Indigenous children was shockingly high, largely due to tuberculosis."

Mitch McConnell says it's 'highly unlikely' he'd let Joe Biden fill a Supreme Court seat in 2024 if Republicans win back control of the Senate

McConnell confirmed he would hold open a hypothetical Supreme Court vacancy in 2024 or 2023.

The minority leader said it would be "highly unlikely" he would allow Biden to fill a vacancy.

McConnell blocked Obama's Supreme Court nominee from getting a hearing in 2016.


Applegrove: This is a dominance display. Biden needs to let the air out of McConnell. Dominace displays like this are directed at females (female voters). Women gravitate towards aggressive men during hard times and lower middle class or working class suburban women are having a tough time and they may break towards republicans or not vote in 2022.


The Suburban Women Who Will Decide the Midterms

Greg Sargent: “Democratic strategists are taking steps now to set the terms of the debate in the midterms. To this end, they say they’ve homed in on a key demographic: suburban women who support President Biden but are at risk of either backing Republicans in 2022 or staying at home.”

“This demographic is somewhat distinct from the relatively affluent, educated White suburbanite demographic that is often discussed as central to the suburban shift to Democrats in the 2018 and 2020 elections.”

“Instead, this group is a subset of suburban women who are more likely to be non-college-educated and somewhat less affluent, and tend to be drawn from the working class or lower-middle class, or the ranks of small business owners.”


Maybe Trump saying he will be back in power in August is laying down

a false narative to explain why he is being indicted by liberal New York prosecutors as in "they are out to get me to stop me from resuming power".
