President Biden said he was “surprised” when #ClassifiedDocuments were found in his former office and portrayed it as an honest mistake—but when another batch was found in his garage, pressure mounted to explain what is becoming a crisis of credibility.…
The #ClassifiedDocuments case has sparked public interest and drawn legal scrutiny.

Republicans have alleged a two-tier justice system where former President Trump—who faces his own document probe—is seen as being treated more harshly.…
The @WhiteHouse is facing growing criticism for not disclosing the find of the Biden-linked #ClassifiedDocuments until 2 months after their discovery on Nov. 2—a week before the midterm election.

House Republicans are demanding answers, launching an investigation, and pointing…

🧵With the successful re-election of Rep. Larry Bucshon (R) in #IN08, he has become the first congressman in Indiana's 8th Congressional District to win a 7th consecutive term -- since 1932. (1)
"The Bloody 8th" used to be a swing district. It gets mentioned a lot by congressional historians. The Evansville-based district, which stretches to Terre Haute, was called the Bloody 8th because of its swing status, and its fierce battles. #IN08 #Midterms2022 (2)
The Indiana 8th was centered around #Evansville circa 1931. Southern Indiana Democrats were a strong force. They won the seat in 1932 and held it for 10 years. Thus began a decades-long battle for the Bloody Eighth, one that would draw the notice of Newt Gingrich. (3)

Post-midterm reflections THREAD: I am #thankful for every voter who looked at the candidates on their ballot and chose those who respect our electoral process over those who do not, especially candidates running for important election-related offices such as Secretary of State.
I give thanks for the thousands of volunteers and election officials who worked to ensure that #voting and vote counting proceeded efficiently and fairly. #midterms2022 #VotingRights
I am also thankful for the numerous pro-democracy groups (including @CampaignLegal!) who guarded vigilantly against efforts to disenfranchise #voters, and responded when necessary, including with legal challenges. #midterms2022

“It’s not my job as a voter to prove voter fraud. It’s the government’s job to prove they’re doing transparent elections I can trust. So none of this even matters. They’re ILLEGAL ELECTIONS!”

THREAD. Ron Klain @WHCOS tells some remarkable lies. On @Lawrence (a gullible guy) Monday night, Klain said "no president ... since John F. Kennedy ... (has held on to) Senate seats and potentially even (went) up one Senate seat." This is untrue; @JonKarl also said this. (1)
The best MIDTERM performance on the Senate side by a party holding the White House since 1960 was:

1) 1962. Kennedy. Dems pick up 4 seats despite midterm.
2) 2002. Bush. Despite recession, GOP picks up 2 seats and control of Senate.

So .. 2022 yet, @MSNBC? No. (2)
2a) Tied for second place is Trump's 2018 midterm. The @NRSC knocked off four Democratic Senate incumbents. The Dems knocked off 2 Republican senators. In the end, the GOP Senate majority *gained* 2 seats in an otherwise terrible midterm. (3)

Rick Scott was a great #FLGov from 2011 to 2019. He rebuilt the Florida GOP and then won the #FLSen seat. But he screwed up with his national plan, trying to build a platform for himself for a national position like Majority Leader. (1)
There's no denying that if you could list five to six things that slowed the GOP momentum in 2022, @ScottforFlorida's plan to vote on Social Security and Medicare every five years was a gift to Democrats, much like Paul Ryan's thick-headed budget plans in 2011. (2)
It makes no difference that Joe Biden lied about Scott's plan by saying the GOP would vote on authorizing Social Security "every year." Scott gave Biden a target, and forced GOP and fact-checkers to write about the plan. (3)

#ElectionDay came and went with most disappointed the highly anticipated #RedWave didn’t leave Florida. But, with key races from #Midterms still being tabulated, all eyes are on to see who will prevail.

However, most have missed important concession speeches these last few days.
On the night of November 8th, some Republican candidates conceded pretty early. A few without any official results called from any major media outlets.

In this thread, I’m going to expose these RINOs for not even trying to contest the count well before the state cert deadlines.
Let’s start with the state where I live and saw the concession first hand, Colorado.

In District 8, @Kirkmeyer4CO (one tough woman endorsed by our local police/first responders) ran against @YadiraCaraveo (Latina daughter of immigrants endorsed by @PPFA and Dems from across CO)

Longtemps 1 inquiétude des démocrates. Dans 1 de leurs bastions- l'Oregon- même s'il est partagé entre villes du nord (Portland) très à gauche et campagnes trumpistes de l'est, 1 triangulaire pouvait faire de la républicaine Drazan 1 gouverneure. Elle est vaincue par Tina Kotek
2. Ayant passé 1 partie du mois d'août en Oregon, cette campagne pour le poste de gouverneure était 1 résumé des #midterms: Drazan faisait campagne sur l'insécurité de Portland, ville présentée par elle et les antennes locales de Fox News en coupe-gorge..…

THANK YOU election officials/poll workers/volunteers who worked & continue to work to ensure that #Midterms2022 are carried out successfully. Nationally this election has been free of major issues, and Americans should feel confident about the voting/vote counting process. Image
While many are focused on the horse race for control of #Congress it is worth noting that #Midterms2022 produced a number of pro-democracy gains through ballot initiatives, many of which received strong majority support. #DemocracyWins
#Arizona: The “Voters Right to Know Act” (Prop. 211) brings transparency to elections by requiring election spenders to disclose the original sources of their funding. Thank you @TerryGoddardAZ for leading on this effort.…

Capisco che ci avevano avvisati, ma noi malati di politica abbiamo un difetto: vogliamo sempre sapere come andrà a finire. In questo caso parliamo di #Midterms2022. E lo facciamo volutamente, pur sapendo che in queste ore tra Italia e Francia monta un poco edificante caso Image
diplomatico sulla pelle di alcune centinaia di #migranti. È un copione che questo Blog aveva ampiamente annunciato, e non perché spicchi per capacità predittive, ma perché le avvisaglie c'erano da tempo. E i protagonisti mancano di fantasia. Dedichiamoci allora alla politica,
quella vera, quella che - piaccia o no ai complottisti trumpiani che da un paio di giorni (o di anni?) mi chiedono di parlare di fantomatici brogli - ha vissuto un momento importantissimo con il voto di #midterm.
A che punto siamo? Al #Senato la situazione è la seguente. Image

Some #Midterms2022 Election Lessons:
A Thread

1. We really need to rethink how we—and how others—use polling data. Sometimes it’s not aimed at reporting. It’s an attempt to persuade—an electoral strategy—more than anything else.

For more:…
2. The youth vote matters. A lot.
3. The press should do more reporting and less predicting.

Is Marjorie Taylor Greene ok? Has someone checked in on her? h/t @rerutled
If Marjorie Taylor Greene was a Muslim, she would be in Guantanamo Bay and in shackles.

But because she is white, evangelical, and a woman--a rich one at that--Greene is instead a member of Conress in the most powerful country in the world.… #Midterms
Marjorie Taylor Greene is one of the most dangerous politicians in the U.S. today.

That she increasingly represents the face of the GOP speaks volumes about how craven that party is and how complicit white women are in upholding it.

Greene, like Trump, is not aberration

Alright, I promised a thread, didn’t I?

The #Midterms2022 didn’t go as we expected because they had to cheat us out of a Red Wave and I can prove it.

PS: @elonmusk, if your algorithm bands me during this, I’ll never forgive you.
Let’s start with Michigan. Voters came out in sweeping numbers. So much so that they felt threatened enough to ballot dump more than once in the race between Tom Barrett and Elissa Slotkin

For anyone still surprised that so many white women still vote Republican after Roe v Wade was overturned… #Midterms #AbortionRights
White, Christian zealots used democracy to cut it at its knees by destroying the right to abortion–a right which most Americans support.…
So successful has white supremacist patriarchy been at convincing you that you’re lucky to live in the U.S. and not Saudi Arabia or Iran, that so many of you did not pay enough attention to the theocracy that white supremacy was building right here.…

Der weltweite Frieden ist immer noch eine Utopie.
Weltweit herrscht Krieg, auch in Europa, in der Ukraine...
Und die Mainstream Presse – nicht nur die deutsche – mischt mit und übt sich in blinder Kriegspropaganda.
Da der ukrainische Stellvertreterkrieg so lange wie möglich hinausgezögert werden soll, wirken Friedensideen deplatziert oder gar defätistisch. Die Gründe für den derzeitigen Krieg in der Ukraine werden gar nicht erst diskutiert.
Man konzentriert sich auf den Überfall, der einerseits erwartet wurde, andererseits aus heiterem Himmel gekommen sein soll. Mit aller Macht werden Narrative verbreitet und verteidigt:
- völkerrechtswidriger Angriffskrieg Russlands/Putins"
- Aggressor Putin will nicht verhandeln..

This is a spreadsheet of Cook Report races which I made based on currently reported results (9am Wed).

+1= Dem Victory
-1=GOP Victory
+0.5= Dem winning
-0.5 = GOP winning

Based on this, right now, I think the Dems hold onto the US House.

#Election2022 Image
Note especially: 3 (of 10 total) GOP "Toss up" seats have already been called for Democratic Victory.
#NC13 #OH01 #TX34.

On the Dem "Toss up" side, there's #VA02 which flipped Red. But that's it.
In summary, of currently held Dem seats, only 1 flipped Dem-> GOP (#VA02), with 6 races leaning GOP.

On the other hand, of current GOP seats, 4 have flipped GOP->Dem (#MT01, #NC13, #OH01, #TX34) and 7 lean Democrats.

I think the Democrats will win the US House. Image

סיכום ביניים של ה #Midterms2022 לבקשת @GilBitan :

1. סנאט: כרגע תיקו 48, כלומר נשארו 4 מושבים במירוץ - אריזונה, שם קלי (D) מוביל ב-6% הפרש ועם 33% מהקולות שטרם נספרו; ויסקונסין, שם ג'ונסון (R) מוביל עם 1.2% ועוד 6% שנותרו. רוב ההערכות הן שלא יהיה מהפך ונגיע ל-49-49.
2. מה שמשאיר אותנו עם שתי מדינות מפתח - נוואדה, שכ-20% מהקולות בה טרם נספרו, היא מדינת השחמט כרגע: אם הדמוקרטים ינצחו בה, וזו הערכה סבירה מאוד לאור העובדה שרוב הקולות שנותרו מגיעים בדואר וממעוזים דמוקרטיים, מפלגת השלטון סוגרת 50 ומבטיחה לעצמה רוב (יחד עם האריס). Image
3. אבל 20% זה המון והפער לטובת לאקסאלט (R) הוא לא בלתי מבוטל (2.7%). אם הרפובליקנים מצליחים לנצח בנוואדה, כל העיניים זזות לג'ורג'יה - עם 0.5% הפרש לוורנוק (D) ועוד 4% מהקולות, סיכוי טוב מאוד שאף מועמד לא מגיע ל-50% ואנחנו ממשיכים לסבב ב' בינואר. Image

Wage mal erste Einschätzung zu #Midterms2022 im 🧵, insg. gilt noch abzuwarten, wie Ergebnis letztlich ausfällt:
1. Ausbleiben großer Gewinne der Trump-Anhänger, gut! Zeigt, daß Demokratie in #USA stark ist 1/5
2.#Trump-Kandidaten eher nicht überzeugend für Bevölkerung
3. Eher Grundunterstützung für #Biden|s Kurs 2/5
4. 🇪🇺und 🇩🇪 sollten – gleich bei welchem Endergebnis – Unterstützung für #Biden erhöhen. Das geht nur durch glaubhafte transatlantische #Lastenteilung, die bislang leider unzureichend erfolgt. Wäre 1 Mittel, nicht weiter Wasser auf Mühlen von #Trump-Unterstützern zu kippen. 3/5

🚨🇺🇸Aggiornamento #Midterms2022.
La partita è davvero avvincente. Non ci credete? Guardate questa grafica.
Quando negli USA è quasi l'alba ancora non è chiaro chi guiderà il Congresso. Devo tenermi sul vago. Sì, perché il discorso vale sia per il #Senato che per la #Camera.
Partiamo dal Senato. Quello che ripetono i networks USA è il seguente messaggio: sarà lunga.
In #Georgia, uno degli Stati chiave per il controllo del Senato, la situazione è la seguente:
🔵 Warnock (Democratici) a spoglio quasi ultimato conduce col 49,2%. Ma per il NYT
difficilmente andrà oltre il 49,5%. Dunque sarà sotto la soglia del 50% che serve a conquistare il seggio. Se così fosse prepariamoci ad un ballottaggio thrilling il prossimo 6 dicembre con il Repubblicano Walker.

Historically, the world is in a transition from the global hegemony of the U.S. (or its ruling class) to a multipolar world to the global hegemony of China (and its ruling class, party?).
Historical analogies are risky, but they can open horizons by pointing out common & different historical situations.

The paradigm shift from Western US dominance to Asian dominance is accelerated by Covid19 & the Ukraine war. Century is accelerated by Covid19 & the Ukraine war.
Until 1820, the world's largest economies were always China and India. Only in the last 200 years have Europe and the United States triumphed. Compared to 2,000 years earlier, Western dominance is an anomaly.

The USA is and remains an oligarchy. The US-Americans live under the rule of the ruling US-class of the very big fortunes.
The election staging every 2 years and permanent wars are just to keep distracting from that.
#Midterms2022 #Republicans Image
The US/NATO proxy war in Ukraine against Russia will be lost. Not because Ukrainians are running out of weapons, but because Western Ukrainians and mercenaries are. With a Republican victory, the US government can sell its about-face in the Ukraine war #Midterms2022 ImageImageImageImage
and demand negotiations with Russia before they lose western Ukraine as well.
Democrats and Republicans differ only in outward appearance to the inside, one pseudo-left woke, the other conservative and nationalist. #Midterms2022 #Republicans Image

Die USA sind und bleiben eine Oligarchie. Die US-Amerikaner leben unter der Herrschaft der herrschenden US-Klasse der sehr großen Vermögen.
Die Wahlkampf-Inszenierung alle 2 Jahre und permanente Kriege sollen nur immer wieder davon ablenken.
#Midterms2022 #Republikaner
Der US/NATO-Stellvertreter-Krieg in der Ukraine gegen Russland geht verloren. Nicht weil den Ukrainer die Waffen ausgehen, sondern die West-Ukrainer und Söldner. Mit einem Sieg der Republikaner kann die US-Regierung ihre Kehrwende im Ukraine-Krieg verkaufen #Midterms2022
und Verhandlungen mit Russland fordern, bevor sie auch noch die West-Ukraine verlieren.
Demokraten und Republikaner unterscheiden sich nur im äußeren Auftreten nach Innen, die einen pseudolinks woke, die anderen konservativ und nationalistisch. #Midterms2022 #Republikaner

#9novembre #Usa #Midterms2022 alcuni flash: aborto ed economia sono stati alla pari nelle preoccupazioni degli elettori nonostante il “my body my choice” sembrasse oscurato dall’inflazione. È il motivo principale probabilmente per cui nonostante un’economia in affanno
da prezzi (l’occupazione va bene) i democratici hanno sconfitto le previsioni peggiori e sono ancora in corsa per il controllo del Senato.
Donne, giovani e latinos sono stati un fattore assieme all’affluenza. Lo sforzo di Biden (e Obama) negli ultimi giorni di campagna pare
abbia pagato. La Camera è ormai nelle mani dei Rep con McCarthy futuro speaker (presidente diremmo in Italia). Per capire cosa accadrà al Senato ci potrebbero volere giorni con Nevada e Arizona (al solito) lenti nello spoglio e il ballottaggio in Georgia. A mio avviso
