I will say this: if the Democrats take both the Senate and the House they can pass legislation to ensure that no political party is able to sway the court going forward.
Why deal with the filibuster when you can pass strong, constitutional laws that prevent partisan legislation from swaying the most important court in the land to begin with? @joebiden @KamalaHarris
This election is about the possibility of taking everything Americans have learned about the "norms" and "traditions" we assumed were laws becoming actual laws with teeth so that we never, ever repeat the past four (or thirty!) years of partisan hacking again. #VoteBlue
I don't know if that will happen. I don't know the best number of justices to move to the court. I don't know the arguments for and against lifetime judicial appointments (though they sure seem obvious). What I do know is that strong representatives grounded in
true democracy can do a whole hell of a lot in two years to ensure that the next wave, whatever color it may be, is unable to ignore the will of the people, the law, science, common sense, and facts for the folks who come after them.@JoeBiden
I voted with that in mind just two days ago, and while I don't expect all my hopes to be met I got to say -- it was by far the very best day of the entire dang year. #VoteBlueToEndThisNightmare @funder

P/1 Trump has successfully purged and undermined our leading and most vaunted institutions in a Stalin style mob boss approach that I'm sure Putin soundly approves. Putin may have even been coaching Trump. While I doubt that the $400,000,000 Trump #JoeBidensNeighborhood
P/2 owes can be easily tied directly to Putin, I'm guessing that a path straight through Deutsche Bank or maybe even HSBC, which has been repeatedly caught laundering vast sums of illicit money may connect the dots

One can only hope that the most patriotic and courageous career
P/3 Americans within State, Justice, the FBI and military will step into the fire to protect our nation and constitution in these perilous times when Putin is taking ground every day with his agent sitting atop of our nation.

WaPo: At one point, after pushing Trump on his retweet of a QAnon-linked conspiracy theory, Guthrie said, “I don’t get that. You’re the president. You’re not like someone’s crazy uncle who can just retweet whatever.#TrumpLiesEverytimeHeSpeaks
When Trump said he wasn’t familiar with QAnon, Guthrie said “you do know,” to which he replied: “No, I don’t know. You tell me all about it. Let’s waste the whole show. Let’s go. Keep asking me these questions.#TrumpLiesEverytimeHeSpeaks
After questioning him about his frequent claims of election fraud, Guthrie told him, “There is no evidence of widespread fraud, and you are sowing doubt in our democracy.#TrumpLiesEverytimeHeSpeaks

Some facts about Interpol:

1) Interpol is a data sharing organization, full stop. It has no police powers.
2) Interpol cannot arrest anyone anywhere in the world.
3) Interpol does not issue warrants nor serve them.
4) Interpol has no authorization to conduct arrest or Image
search operations in any country.
5) Interpol only issues information, including notices and warnings to local police.
6) An "Interpol Officer" is actually a local police officer with local powers acting as a local officer.
7) It is a "liaison" designation, not an actual position of authority.

If someone shows you an Interpol badge and attempts to arrest you or question you, they are a fake.

Hollywood gets this very, very wrong. And it has lead to some serious scams that should not have worked
