The right has weird ideas about their ideological enemies: we're "groomers," we're secretly on a billionaire's payroll, we hijacked education to promulgate revisionist histories, we steal elections, and, of course, w're plotting to take over America and subjugate them. 1/ A page from the Jack Chick tract 'Dark Dungeons,' depicting

They’ve just discovered a 3rd treasure trove of classified documents in #JoeBiden’s possession. I’m glad there was enough public outcry to pressure #MerrickGarland to appoint a special council to investigate, but now it’s time for us to demand an #FBI raid & photo op! Image

Dear #MerrickGarland @DOJCrimDiv : 65% of the electorate is counting on U to protect us from the MAGAS, the 35% of voters who have evil intent toward non-MAGASs. Who hate us & attempted to kill our representatives on Jan 6. No doubt prosecuting Trump will send them into the

Watching some more video from the #LetJulieSwim rally in Port Townsend, & really disappointed to see the police letting trans rights extremists intimidating, and physically assaulting women exercising their 1A right. #LetWomenSpeak #WomensRights
Reminder to elected officials of Port Townsend, WA 👉 older Americans are the most reliable voter block. Who pays taxes to keep your town running? (Hint: it's not the petulant activists living in their parents' basements.) #LetJulieSwim #LetWomenSpeak…
Attacking women in their 70s & 80s to keep them from speaking is not a way to win hearts & minds. It makes you look like cowards who know you have no real arguments to make. All you have left is physical intimidation & assault. I hope you get arrested.

This raid of #MarALago is a jaw-dropping, mind blowing, hair- raising, eye-popping moment: the home of the former president #DonaldTrump raided by the FBI. An astonishingly striking move by an Attorney General hitherto known for being overly cautious
You would have to believe that the AG, #MerrickGarland knew what the Feds were looking for. And every i and every t would have been dotted and crossed before this raid would have taken place
The politics of the #DonaldTrump raid is complicated. The #January6thHearings has been devastating for Trump’s reputation - but, but, but. This could make him a martyr, and fire up a base that had started to drift away

This is a recap of an article from The Atlantic regarding Trump's Zero Tolerance/Family Separation policy. I've included important excerpts here.

It should enrage you.

The article is 30,000 words and is attached at the end. It may have a paywall
This excerpt speaks for itself.
The children were ripped from. Their parents arms and crammed into "cages."

This was done by the Republican Party who insist they care about children

Pat Cipollone: The rioters have gotten to the Capitol, Mark.

Mark Meadows: [Trump] doesn't want to do anything, Pat.

Pat: Mark, something needs to be done or people are going to die and the blood is going to be on your f—ing hands.

Liz Cheney: The night before #January6th, President* Trump instructed Mark Meadows to contact both Roger Stone and Michael Flynn regarding what would play out the next day.

#CassidyHutchinson: That’s correct. That is my understanding.

Cheney: Did Rudy Giuliani [seek a] pardon related to January 6?
Cassidy Hutchinson: He did.
LC: Did Mark Meadows ever indicate that he was interested in receiving a Presidential pardon related to #January6th?
CH: Mr Meadows did seek that pardon. Yes ma’am.

“[Ben Wattenberg 1987 book says] ‘60% of fetuses that are aborted every year are white. If we could keep that 60% alive, that would solve our birth dearth.’ Does that sound like racism to you? And if it doesn’t, I want to know why it doesn’t.”

1/ My starting point for #SupremeCourt jurisprudence since 2000 is a telling quote from Joel Klein's "The Natural" in which a Republican Senator concedes to Clinton that Republicans don't believe in government, but they love power.
2/2000: #BushvGore, the Supreme Court stays the Florida recount with any opinion justifying the stay and then reverses the Fla. Supreme Court recount order as violating the Equal Protection Clause in a per curiam opinion that can't be cited as precedent.
3/2002: President Bush signed the #McCainFeingold campaign finance reform law, which foolishly included a restriction on the use of independent expenditures for commercials 60 days before an election.

“President* Trump…followed the course recommended by an apparently inebriated Rudy Giuliani—to just claim he won and insist the vote counting stop. To falsely claim that everything was fraudulent… Millions of Americans believed him.”

“The Trump campaign knew these claims of voter fraud were false; yet, they continued to barrage small dollar donors, encouraging them to donate to ‘The Official Election Defense Fund.’ @January6thCmte discovered NO SUCH FUND EXISTED.”

“I said to him: ‘Are you out of your f—ing mind?’ I said, ‘I only want to hear two words coming out of your mouth from now on: ORDERLY TRANSITION.’”

“I made it clear I did not agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen…which I told [Donald Trump] was bullshit… The incumbent [cannot] stay in power based on its view unsupported by specific evidence there was fraud in the election.” Bill Barr
#January6thCommittee: “Did that affect your perspective about the election when Attorney General Barr made that statement?”

Ivanka Trump: “It affected my perspective. I respect Attorney General Barr, so I accepted what he was saying.”

“Any legal jargon you hear about seditious conspiracy, obstruction of an official proceeding, and conspiracy to defraud the United States — all boils down to this: January 6th was the culmination of an attempted coup.”

It was easier for a 13-year-old boy to buy a rifle from a private seller at a gun show than to buy beer, cigarettes, porn, and lottery tickets. (🎥:#RealSports 2014)

Gun show loopholes still exist.

@StephenAtHome Sorry but YOU need to know what #CRT is really about. It is NOT teaching "real history" of race. Marxist in premise & praxis, it teaches whiteness is evil, makes white children stand up & confess "I am white, I am privileged, I am an oppressor" & blacks can't learn

@BillClinton setting priorities from BBB would have been better. Work requirements make sense. But there are also #PelosiPoisonPills the $275 Billion SALT tax cut for the rich and disturbing trend in many areas by this administration, surveillance of individuals bank accounts.
Surveillance of #Parents after calling #Moms #DomesticTerrorists calling for @TheJusticeDept to invoking #PatriotAct to have @FBI surveil, investigate #Parents is Orwellian. #MerrickGarland is harassing, intimidating ordinary people legitimately concerned about their children.
I know some of these folks in NoVa concerned about their children. They are NOT the #Jan6thInsurrection crowd @BillClinton No one is herding the cats.
