He's as demented as ever. At some point, he will... go down as the single craziest, sickest, most dishonorable political leader in our history, and people who voted for him will have to live with that or die with it.

Can’t remember if I previously posted this. The vid is long but all the Russian denialists
should be required to explain how that stance and any notion of patriotism
can reconciled.

A lot of what we call 'thought' is just mental activity

I’ll leave this here. I think there’s a lot here that Democrats can learn from if they want to win in 2022.

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2020-election/democrats-ding-own-party-failing-persuade-minorities-explain-party-s-n1269874

The report found that Republican attempts to tie moderate Democrats to the left's most extreme and unpopular elements, such as calls to defund the police, worked. The problem was partly their own making because Democrats failed to explain where they actually stood on police funding and many other issues, other than opposing former President Donald Trump.


“Win or lose, self-described progressive or moderate, Democrats consistently raised a lack of a strong Democratic Party brand as a significant concern in 2020,” the report’s authors wrote. “In the absence of strong party branding, the opposition latched on to G.O.P. talking points, suggesting our candidates would ‘burn down your house and take away the police.’”


In addition to faulting polling that fueled Democrats’ overly rosy expectations and the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, their 73-page report found that a drop off in support from some minorities likely cost the party some key races in places like California, Texas and Florida.


Campaigns typically separate potential voters in two buckets, with different strategies for each: swing voters and base voters. Swing voters are targeted early with messages designed to persuade them. And base voters who are thought to already agree with the campaign are usually targeted later in an effort to simply motivated them to show up.

But the report argues that minority voters need to be persuaded, too, both to vote for Democrats and to vote at all, since many often feel their vote won’t matter. Activists like Stacey Abrams have been pushing Democrats to stop viewing Black voters as simply needing to be motivated to show up.

Another corrupt piece of garbage is out of office. Bye bitch! Let’s see if Israel will actually prosecute its corrupt politicians unlike the U.S. This doesn’t mean anything changes in Israel but it’s a step in a different direction (not sure if it’s better yet). And this is an example of why electing Joe Biden makes a difference. Bibi wasn’t going anywhere if Trump was still in office.

Just a reminder, it is not antisemitic to hate Netanyahu's guts
These go to eleven.

Lol never change Mitch. This is why these idiots on the left that complain about Biden and Democrats and threaten to not vote are dummies. Mitch is smiling at their stupidity. Republicans literally give up the game every time and have no problem telling people all the ways they’ll **** them over.

I can’t wait for the pikachu face from Manchin when Mitch McConnell and the Republicans wait for it….abolish the filibuster.

What an amazing step by Israel - with very conservative and very liberal parties and their leaders coming together to get rid of Netanyahu.

How “quaint” that scandal was even people on the left used it against Hillary. Just imagine this is only the things we know so far about Trump’s ****. There’s so much more to come out and the idiot Republicans are going to nominate this **** show again in 2024.

So, they passed Juneteenth today, and it's a federal holiday tomorrow. Why couldn't they at least have waited till Monday? I don't know if schools will be open tomorrow or if my clients will be open, banks, government contractors? Most pretty much follow federal.

You guys need to read the transcript of some leaked audio of Joe Manchin talking to his donors. I mean Joe Manchin is going to Manchin but it’s pretty illuminating about his thought process. I’ll admit it’s not as bad as it I expected but it’s wild that he straight up tells his donors to pretty much offer retiring Republican Senators jobs so they’ll vote on the Jan 6th commission so then the Progressives will get off Joe Manchin’s back about the filibuster. It’s a weird circular logic and it will be interesting to see if the Republicans Joe tells his donors to target end up voting yes on the commission. Oh and as always **** Mitch McConnell. He’s literally human scum. Read the whole thing
