Just reported on MSNBC Deadline White House

Biden considering declaring a health emergency for abortion access. Sorry no link, listening on radio.

I want to know who the hell Meadows was talking to in the car....

she stated she was asked to let Meadows know that the mob was getting close to the Capitol. She said he was in the car on a phone call. She walked to the car and tried to open the door and he immediately shut the door on her. She said she waited a moment then tried to open the door and again he shut the door on her. She said that was very unlike him and she thought it was important that he knew that they were at the Capitol and the Capital police were beginning to have trouble. She said it was 25 min before he got off the phone and got out of the car.

She finally told him the info she was asked to convey and all he said was how much longer was left in the presidents speech, that was his only reaction. This was exactly at the time the initial group of Proud Boys were beginning to go after the police at the bike racks, the testimony we heard from the first day and before the main flow of the rest of the rally goers started heading down.

Cheney made a point to set that timeline twice. Who the hell was on that 25 min call as this was going on? I have a feeling he was in direct contact with Stone and/or Flynn and/or the organized "first strike" attackers who were to "soften up" and open pathways for the mob to get into the Capitol. That's super damning stuff for Meadows if they have a record of that call.

Wow, Rachel blew me away on her 6/24 show

I work nights sometimes so I'm occasionally late to the game. She was ripping the words out of my mouth. I've been an RM supporter since before MSNBC for her written journalism, not for her politics but for her professional skill. She's just damn good at her job. Her opening last night was about the best I've ever seen her do. She was on like Ive never seen her. My goodness we are blessed to have a journalist as talented as she is.

C'mon, we all know this. Joel Olstein has told us

as long as the unborn are in the womb they are innocent, As soon as they take their first breath they assume the sins of man and must spend the rest of their lives answering to and sacrificing all to repent. Sins of the innocent.

A grift that makes Fat Nixons look like stealing penny candy

Meadows "... was no there there"

1/6 committee "no it's here here"

I'm old enough to remember the gun debate in the 70's,

these confederate flag waving dicks have no clue. While they got Freebird blaring in their mini monster trucks, they have no fucking clue

Hand guns are made for killin'
They ain't no good for nothin' else.
And if you like to drink your whiskey
You might even shoot yourself.
So why don't we dump 'em people
To the bottom of the sea
Before some ol' fool come around here
Wanna shoot either you or me.
Mr. Saturday night special
Got a barrel that's blue and cold
Ain't good for nothin
But put a man six feet in a hole
It's the saturday night special
And I'd like to tell you what you could do with it too

Canada trying to crackdown on weapons may be more than just safety

The northern states that border Canada from Washington to Maine are some of the most sparsely populated areas in the US. They also have far more wild lands from forests and mountains to vast (in today's terms) wild prairies, than most other states. Sparsely populated areas like that are a magnet for individuals who have a harder time adopting to the ever growing population densities farther south and are areas where someone can reasonably live off the grid and off of the surrounding land. In the late 50's, 60's and 70's communal left wing Hippies and the wealthier left leaning Yippies that were moving into the northern states to get away from a system gone awry or, if you could afford larger tracts of land, to be closer to nature and farther away from the rat race. They mostly wanted to be left alone and live peacefully.

The US population has increased by nearly 140 million! just in my 60 years. There are many, like myself, that just aren't built for the crowding that's going on.

But also from the 70's, all the way up to now, another group that was running from a system they thought had gone awry began an exodus to the far northern wildernesses with a much more sinister intent. While they to wanted to be left alone they were more motivated by being able to hide. Their reasons for getting away were more strongly rooted,in their minds, by a federal government that had been slowly, over a couple decades, been forcing a dismantling of some of the truly evil social constructs, ironically, in the far southern states, and doing something about it.

So think about it. For the last 40 years Canada has seen an ever growing presence of right wing extremists/white supremacists with fascist ideologies directly on it's southern border and through natural symbiosis this is spreading across the border to our closest ally, especially in the last 6 years. Does anyone remember the back and forth passport fiasco of the 2000's? I think it's no coincidence that at the same time the Canadian defense ministry issued both an interior and public warning that Canada may need to basically go on alert if another Fat Nixon or Fat Nixon type is elected in the US in 2024 and Trudeau's announcement of a potential crackdown on private weapons ownership. I think both are intertwined. I think Canada's truly and I mean truly, deeply concerned that they may have a Hungarian type single party cristofascist "democracy" spanning their entire southern border that will attempt to threaten their social democratic state from within. I think cracking down an personal weapons is a preventative response to help keep military style weapons and far right influence from spreading across their southern border.

I find it truly frightening that our closest ally in the world may be taking preventative action to PROTECT ITSELF FROM US!

P.S. Mexico better look out too

I got my issues with Navalny but hey, it's not my country

Regardless this new Cinemax doc on him is a must watch if you can. I think its more of a mirror of where we are headed than a doc of where Russia could go.

Just got home from the Indy 500 a bit ago

I'm too old for this shit lol. 325k people all leaving at once what a cluster. This was my 20th the first being in 1977 when AJ won his 4th, sat right behind his pit box. Back in the day we'd go down on Thursday evening and camp. They would open up the North 40 very early Friday morning for Carb day and we could camp there until the race on Sunday. Some crazy experiences during that time, that I wouldn't trade for anything, before they stopped letting people into the north 40 early. I wanted to round up to an even 20 so I went this year. Unless you live close by or are camping it's a holy shit waiting in line for fucking ever everywhere. My 500 days are over unless I can get some camping passes lol, I'm just too old to deal with that chaos. Btw, it was a great race and being there is a must at least once if you're a race fan, just plan ahead.

I strongly reccomend this book Dirt Road Revival

I just finished it this week. It was written by Maine state senator Chloe Maxmin and her campaign manager Canyon Woodward. It really is an honest eye opening expose on how the Democrat party lost small town America and how we can take it back by inclusive and invigorating youth voter representation. It's something that I feel is so important. This is the future of our party and we must embrace it.

"The Democratic Party — indeed, all America — must take heed, and Dirt Road Revival offers us a path forward. This is a wonderful, powerful book — and one of the most hopeful I’ve read about a possible future for American politics."



—Robert B. Reich, former US Secretary of Labor and

author of Saving Capitalism: For the Many, Not the Few
