Can someone start a 1/6 thread, for those of us who can't watch live

Thanks, in advance.

Anyone know how long Rachel will only work 1 night on MSNBC?

I guess one night per week is better that none.
But it seems odd to me that MSNBC would use their biggest prime time spot on someone only working Mondays unless this is just a short term thing while Maddow finishes up some other projects and then comes back to her show full time?

Biden should call out Rupert Murdoch by name.

Not just Tucker Carlson or Fox News.
Say the owner of Fox News name and that his employees are peddling hate.
Maybe even publicly invite him to the White House to discuss the subject.

What uncomfortable things will We/Me now do to save democracy.

So there can no longer be any doubt about what we are up against and what they will do.
The only question is what WE will do to stop them between now and the midterms.
For me:
I am going to stretch my comfort zone by;
Telling family, friends, and acquaintances why Iím going to work to elect Democrats in November.
I donít like confrontation (in fact, I hate it).
But, if need be, I will state my exact feelings about what voting Republican means to me and how I just can not waste my time right now socializing with those who will vote Republican.
After November, I may well go back to those relationships.
But, for now, my time and disposable income will be spent trying to elect Democrats both in my area and nationally.
I will door knock, phone bank, distribute yard signs, post on social media, bring food to other volunteers. Whatever Iím asked to do. Whether I like the task or not. I will do it.
So I challenge all progressives reading this to double your efforts too.
Our democracy depends on it!

What happened to the cry of "Activist Judges".

What could be more activist than overturning a 50 year precedent?

So the dog finally caught the car. What happens now?

Does this infuriate our side enough that we see massive Democratic turnout in 2022?
Does this embolden the GOP to shoot for more outrageous SCOTUS opinions such as overturning the right to privacy, birth control, gay marriage, interracial marriage?

Remember where you were and how you feel right now and then decide how you will fight back.
They want an Christian Taliban Autocracy America that looks like the fictional Gilead in
The Handmaids Tale.
Thatís no longer a joke or a scare tactic.
We now KNOW this as a fact.

What is the new relationship between MSNBC & Sky News?

MSNBC is now carrying their live programming between midnight and 5am and also running some of their foreign reporting stories at other times.
Is Sky News still owned and operated by Rupert Murdoch?

I'd love to see GOP voters polled on this question.

Would you rather see your candidate lose a fair and honest election or your candidate win a dishonest election rigged in their favor?

DNCC, DSCC, should gather all talking heads for midterm "advice"

If you watch much MSNBC, you will see talking heads all day long giving their brilliant advice on how Democrats should handle their ďmessagingĒ for the midterms.
Usually itís one of two ways:
1. Tie all Republicans to TFG, the big lie, and Jan 6.
2. Ignore TFG and Jan 6 and brag about Biden and Dem accomplishments.
Nobody ever says to do both things. Itís always framed as just an either or choice.

I suggest all these brilliant folks should be invited to a meeting of the Democratic brass and they can give out all of their sage advice.

Hoping the Breyer replacement timing helps November turnout.

If the replacement happens in late summer or early fall, maybe that will energize our base leading to November. At least, I hope it does.
