Rethugs wanted N. Pelosi out of their way, now they face Jeffries and Raskin

Is boobert a bimbo caricature? She stands up there and shakes and bounces. Must thrill the UltraChauvinists

That's the cycle, culture covers for the rich and discontents the left who elect fascists eventually

Then wars, revolutions, insurrections leading to regret and cleansing and we start over.

The French Revolution, btw, could be seen as having a significant insurrection component, since there were elites stirring up the populace before and during.

That's spot on, and how do rural Dems and Inds perceive the REPUBLICAN WAR ON NEIGHBORS?

That's what I've been calling the LGBTQ/Abortion Bounties/CRT Censorship/Voter Suppression. Republicans are dividing America into those who agree with them and will strong arm the citizenry, and those they morally demonize so they can punish them. It is a none-too-subtle war of hatred. I suspect many people don't clearly realize what's going on so they just go along.

Truth emerges. Call it the Big Treason.


Eric Garland
Suggestion: Don't call the violent assault on democracy "the Big Lie." It doesn't matter what they believe. What matters is that they invited foreign enemies to attack us and then attempted a coup d'état.

It's the Big Treason.

"Ooh, look, these people have been *tricked* into believing this unusual thing - let's study it! Oh, such a problem," is the wrong framework. Relieves criminals of their own FREE WILL AND RESPONSIBILITY.

Selfish, deluded, asshole traitors betrayed America. It doesn't matter why.
Eric Garland

The traitors broke laws, must be tried, and if the evidence is beyond a reasonable doubt, convicted. As such, I don't give a fuck what they believe.

The courts' question is did they:
- Engage in conspiracy
- Assault
- Kill
- Launder money
- Work for foreign nations?
Eric Garland

They can believe the Tooth Fairy encouraged them to attack the Capitol on January 6, 2021. That matters not a whit. The question is, did they:
- Incite violence
- Organize the attack
- Commit wire fraud?

That should be our focus: PROSECUTE CRIMINALS.
Eric Garland

The tax-evading bajillionaires behind the attack on democracy paid big bucks to create these propaganda networks spreading lies and encouraging malicious ignorance.

Eric Garland

No more debates about evolution.
End public discourse on "Is algebra satanic?"
Shut down anyone who calls it a "post-truth world."
Shame and ridicule those who don't believe in science.
Encourage different opinions, but stop allowing people to have their own facts.
Eric Garland

The trend toward Idiocracy was a long-term operation to manufacture consent by cultivating an insane, fascism-prone mindset. It's psychological warfare.

No more gauzy media profiles of the people they turned into weapons. Too much is at stake.

Joe Biden's speech in North Carolina is a barn burner

That's a live link, don't know if it will be repeated after completion

Biden is really ripping Trump! Love these car attended rallies, lots of horn tooting.

Steve Schmidt's Tweet Thread A call to duty

Steve Schmidt


Do Not Be Afraid. Do Not Tremble. Do Not Waiver. Do not doubt either the goodness of our people or the possibilities for our future. Do not let small men with tyranny and malice in their heart (@realDonaldTrump) or hypocrites with no core (@VP) make you afraid for our future

or of your countrymen and women. Do not let the fascists, racists and conspiracy theorists make you afraid of your neighbors or the strangers who could be your friend. We should all be grateful that we have been chosen by this rancid and dangerous hour to stand up and fight.

What we do now matters. Our Capitol is occupied by a cabal of small and low men and women who have betrayed all of us, the American experiment, their oaths and basic decency in service of a corrupt and malignant cult of personality that is vandalizing our principles, ideals,

Inheritance, future and fundamental goodness. 200,000 of our country men and women are dead. At least 150,000 of them could be alive but for Trump’s lethal lying and the immoral; supine complicity of his collaborators and enablers. Let us resolve to rise up and strike down

Trumpism. Let us put it down with righteous anger and fury. Let us resolve to never let this happen again. Let us do our duty as American citizens. Let us be conscious that we are called to safe action when we consider the blood, sacrifice and courage of ordinary people who

Stood their ground on a field in Lexington and Gettysburg. The men who stormed the beaches of Normandy and dropped from the skies over France to crush fascism are smiling at our cause. The men and women who taught the world the meaning of the words “human dignity” as they

Protested segregation, absorbed the beatings and marched across the Edmund Pettus bridge are watching and judging us. We are in the right and for the right. We are fighting for the good. Trumpism is UNAMERICAN. It is illiberal, demagogic,dishonest, cruel, corrupt and disgusting

Let us strike it down. We will. Vote. @ProjectLincoln @JoeBiden @votevets @actblue @RVAT2020 @crookedmedia @prioritiesUSA
@PodSaveAmerica @PaulBegala @JamesCarville @davidplouffe @davidaxelrod. Have joy in this fight. RBG is with her husband again. She is arguing with Scalia

and meeting Washington and Lincoln. Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglas are there. Susan b Anthony is there and so is Elise Wiesel. A great champion of freedom has arrived in heaven. Her work is done. Her burden is now our’s. Let us honor her legacy by doing our duty.

FIGHT, REGISTER, VOTE. I DISSENT are the most American of words. Thank you Madame Justice. May your memory be a blessing. We all know that it is.

A lot of people don't read Twitter. Share the link, email to friends far and wide. Steve Schmidt's post could motivate a lot of people in tight races to vote like their lives depend on it. Because they do.
