As you know there’s people who believe to this day that Donald Trump created a great economy.



The economy was showing growth way before Trump ever started campaigning .

It’s online in black & white.

Trump continued increments in which were made by the Obama Administration. This also includes President Biden.


Trump filed bankruptcy 6 times. He bankrupted a casino.

He had many businesses that he started and failed. This is also online.

Someone like this cannot build a great economy .

Good news, Texas, Big business is doing great!
Our GOP legislature & governor sent them a $6.4 billion lifeline in 2021.

Bad news: Consumers are paying to bail out big business.

Taking from the poor and giving to the rich, that's the Texas way!
Texas consumers are paying that $6.4 billion. Texas consumers will also pay to bail out phone companies.
Attention all Texans who use a cell phone or landline: The Watchdog has bad news. Starting with September’s phone bill, your bill is going up.

The GOP-controlled Texas Legislature authorized $6.4 billion in bonds to pay for losses recorded by electricity & natural gas businesses during the 2021 winter storm. Our GOP Governor signed the bill into law.
Oddly, ordinary Texans weren't compensated for their losses during the storms, nor for the deaths resulting from the failure of the Texas power grid. Instead, consumers were stuck with a bill for $6.4 billion.
We may be paying off those bonds for 30 years. That means Texans who weren't even born when the storm hit will pay for those companies who failed to do their jobs.

If I ever have the honor of meeting @staceyabrams I will ask her if she had a hard time convincing Dems to vote for Dems like we do here in Williamson County. Turning a red district Blue takes yrs & several cycles, but we're against a self-defeating narrative here.
To some degree I get it bc for many yrs Dems weren't on the ballot. But we've run primaries for the last 2 cycles & this yr had a contested primary for a county-wide seat for the 1st time ever! Yet many Dems pulled an R ballot to "vote for the least crazy R". They didn't need to
E.g., many Dems wanted to keep Glen Casada out of the County Clerk seat. So they pulled an R ballot to vote for the other guy. Casada lost by over 8K votes but & according to election data about 1.6K Dems crossed over to vote for a guy & party who don't share their values.

Polls are great, but only votes matter. #VoteBlue2022

“In the Classic version of our forecast — which doesn’t use the race ratings published by the Cook Political Report and other expert groups — the movement toward Democrats has also been steady.
“There, their chances sit at 67 %, up from 56% at launch on June 30 & 52% in the June 1 retroactive forecast. (We discussed some of the differences between our Classic and Deluxe versions of the forecast on this week’s podcast, and it’s a theme we’ll revisit in the coming weeks.)
“It’s always hard to know how much to emphasize relatively modest movement in the forecast. Sure, the difference between a 47% chance and a 55% chance might matter to a poker player (raises hand) or an options trader.

Polls are nice. Votes are nicer. #VoteBlue2022

“As was the case when we launched the forecast a month ago, the Deluxe version of FiveThirtyEight’s midterm model still rates the battle for control of the Senate as a ‘toss-up.’
“But within that category there’s been modest, but consistent movement toward Democrats. Their chances of winning the Senate now stand at 55%. That’s up from 47% from forecast launch on June 30. It’s also up from 40% in a retroactive forecast dated back to June 1.
“This is matched by Democrats’ improved position on the generic congressional ballot, which asks voters which party they would support in a congressional election.

Yet more reasons to #VoteBlue2022 — to defeat Putin and his American allies.

“Putin is pretty much betting that the [U.S.] midterm elections will undermine Biden and that by 2024, the United States will be in a great big mess.”
“I came back from Europe just a little bit before July 4, just after the Supreme Court ruling on Roe vs Wade, the efforts to deal with gun violence, and against the backdrop of all of the Jan. 6 hearings. Those three things were being paid very close attention to.
“I don’t think we fully process here how much the rest of the world feels that the United States is undercut by the manifestations of polarization and partisan infighting.

I tweeted a thread about pregnancy complications going untreated after SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade. The response shows that this is a powerfully motivating issue for women. One tweet has already been retweeted almost 500 times. Keep spreading the word.
Next, we need to convert outrage into action. Please use your anger as motivation to vote, register new voters, support Democratic candidates, and get out the vote. The solution is keeping the House in Democratic hands & adding at least two more Democrats in the Senate.
The outlook for the Senate is promising. That will allow us to set aside the filibuster to codify Roe v. Wade.

🧵1/ This #IndependenceDay, let’s talk about how to keep our democracy. This is not hyperbolic—right *NOW* the GOP is enacting an *ongoing* coup 50+ years in the making. #53PickUp #VoteBlue
2/ Odds are you don’t have a strong understanding of US civics because our government didn’t *WANT* you to understand it. The GOP’s most reliable voting block are uneducated whites. They want it easier to dupe voters with diversions & propaganda. 🧵:
3/ It’s also easier to fool people into thinking the Democrats are purposely or incompetently messing things up if your audience doesn’t know how civics works. The GOP & enemy countries have massive & effective propaganda networks to turn public opinion. Image

Folks, the fact is if you vote for Republicans in November, our country will go back to 1950s. Women will be expected to submit to men. Racism, already bad enough, could become even worse. Regulating our sexual behavior, choices will become law #VoteBlueIn22
We have millions who still support a man who wanted to declare himself “president” much like Putin and dictators in other countries. The truth is, this party who SAY they want less regulation, is regulating more of our personal choices #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica
The current Republicans are self-righteous religious fanatics who feel violent toward any who don’t agree with them. This version of the GOP is the most hate-filled, backward thinking group of people I have seen in my lifetime. #VoteBlueToSaveDemocracy

In order to become a hair stylist in the US, the candidate must attend a training course, take written and practical exams, pay a license fee and renew that license every few years, and take continuing ed classes. /1
To buy a gun in many US states, all the purchaser needs is cash. Not every state requires a permit, though they do require a background check IF the gun is purchased from a dealer. Online sales and gun shows DO NOT require a background check. /2
Only 7 states require safety training in order to own a gun: Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maryland, Washington, California, and Hawaii. /3

I couldn't be more happy to see .@CawthornforNC gone. Now hopefully the rest of these far right wing lunatics who are competing for the seats that we need from local, Governor, State Houses & Senate to our Federal House & Senate, do not win the general election in Nov.
Everyone please get out & vote, we cannot give the GOP back the power, every single one of the GOP's running are 2020 deniers, will sabotage the 2024 election & more. We need to give .@POTUS a REAL majority in both Houses so he can get his agenda through, making Sinema
& Manchin irrelevant! We must protect voting rights before 2024, codify & protect Roe which IS on the ballot, expand SCOTUS & so much more! We CAN do this, however it'll take ALL of us showing up, no matter our disappointments, to get it done! The Republicans are literally

Here's just a small list of who #Republicans are putting on the ballot across the country:

Eric Greitens, Senator. Ex-governor of Missouri. He resigned after sexual misconduct and campaign finance allegations. His ex-wife filed claims of emotional and physical abuse. /1
Charles W. Herbster, Governor of Nebraska. Trump endorsed, accused of sexual assault. He lost his primary. /2
Herschel Walker, Senator, Georgia. Walker has numerous claims against him of domestic violence, including holding a gun to his ex-wife's head. Trump endorsed. /3

President Biden made loan forgiveness easier for 3.6 million borrowers last Tuesday. The Department of Education announced changes to the student loan system that will bring millions closer to debt forgiveness.
The change will extend borrowers’ retroactive credit for “forbearance steering” and track monthly payments on the income-driven repayment program (IDR).
Thanks to President Biden, 40,000 borrowers are eligible debt forgiveness via the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program while 3.6 million borrowers gain steps toward debt foreignness. By the end of March, more than 700,000 borrowers no longer had any debt.

Trump and his minions were terrified of a Biden presidency--not just because they wanted to stay in office so they could keep criming and acquiring more wealth, but also because they (rightly) feared an actual DOJ would prosecute them for their mob activities.

So they committed an offense far worse than anything they'd yet so far done in their petty grifting crime spree. They attempted a vast and complex multi-pronged coup, intended to keep them in power so as to protect them from prosecution.

They failed to retain power, but they've (so far) partially succeeded in evading prosecution for their lesser crimes. They're instead being investigated (and will be prosecuted) for the far more serious crime of seditious conspiracy.

Thread 🧵

@SenMacDonald10 , "Michigan School Safety Task Force" Macomb County Representative @PLHornberger and the disgraced, illusive and removed from committee assignments Domestic Abuser Rep. Steve Marino Mi #HD24 have as you guessed it, all stayed silent
On today's gun violence that took place at @cvhs_bigreds . No surprise task force member @PLHornberger hasn't spoken out, after all she displays the @NRA sign proudly in her office. We need elected officials who will stand up for #schoolsafety not those who turn a blind eye
@SenMacDonald10 I'm calling on you to support SB550 and SB553 - and do whatever it takes to get them passed! Gun violence happened in YOUR district on YOUR time, are you really going to stay silent during an election cycle? Just so happens you decided to run for my district--

Women's History Month shows MORE REASONS we need to #KeepCongressBlue2022:
Democrats have been working around the clock for women, workers, and families.
Through the American Rescue Plan, Democrats delivered immediate relief to women & families, lowered health care premiums, funded domestic violence & sexual assault services, supported child care providers, + invested in care workers who are disproportionately women of color. /2
Through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, Democrats are working to ensure equitable access to good-paying jobs, particularly in sectors where women have historically been underrepresented. /3

This guy~
Rape comments
Qanon, Ukraine, the pandemic~ all conspiracy theories.
Is it the TFG?
It's Robert "RJ" Regan.
GOP candidate for MI House 74th.
1 of his 3 daughters pleaded "don't vote for my dad."
Don't vote for her dad.…
MI state and local GOP leaders grumble about him but they won't call for him to step aside~ RJ is considered "a heavy favorite."

Mich RNC chair~
"Mr Regan's history of foolish, egregious and offensive comments...are simply beyond the pale."
Weak, eh?
Others say he owes voters an apology.
Not enough, RJ. NOT ENOUGH.

His FB page.
"Feminism is a Jewish program to degrade and subjugate white men," and "Jews are behind 9/11 terrorist attacks."
His Twitter
is full of disinformation~ "LEO response to 1/6 was staged."

When a sensible party loses an election, they reassesses their positions, their approaches, their rhetoric, and they retool, trying to understand why The People didn't like their approach.

Republicans do the opposite. They double-down on exactly the things voters rejected.

Instead of trying to expand their appeal, instead of changing their policies to address what more Americans want, Republicans increasingly narrow their focus--to further enrage their shrinking base, to create more desperation and rage, and to ever-more isolate themselves.

We see this same approach in other places. Vlad Putin, for instance; rather than alter the nature of his rule to make it more attractive and to build international allies, he increases his criminality, brutality, and iron-handed authoritarianism.

We all remember the big things Trump did to destroy democracy: refuse to release his taxes, lie to his accountant and banks, destroy documents, etc. Let's take a trip down memory lane and discuss a few of the disgraceful and disgusting elements of the 45 admin. 1/
❌ Almost doubled the cost of naturalization from $640 to $1160 to keep "undesirables" from becoming citizens.
❌ Asked FBI Director James Comey to make the Mike Flynn case go away. 2/…
❌ When credible evidence showed that Vladimir Putin arranged the poisoning of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, Trump refused to condemn Putin.
❌ Attacked his perceived enemies with DOJ lawsuits that failed-NYT, CNN, AT&T, Washington Post. 3/…

❌"control" is spelled w/ 1 n.
❌ Do #Democrats believe in Liberalism, Communism, or Socialism? Which is it?
❌ The horror of letting people vote!
❌ Increase taxes on the wealthy 1/

#VoteBlue2022 #DemVoice1 #BlueVoices Image
❌ Why is the military weak? Is it because anyone who wants to join can?
❌ Sure, #Republicans want babies to be born. Then they and their families are on their own.
❌ Tax breaks for the wealthy only.
❌ Gun rights over human rights every time for the #GOP. 2/

❌ Free speech-is that why Trump called the press the "enemy of the people?"
❌ Humping a flag at a convention or putting a flag sticker on your car does not a patriot make.
❌Constitution - Trump constantly went against it. I guarantee he never read it. 3/
