Here we go: Trump just told us that he will stop at nothing to steal this election
"we want all voting to stop", he said
in other words: he wants to stop counting votes
there are millions of uncounted ballots

Every single serious analysis I read of this election said that it would be long and drawn out, and that Trump would try to steal the election by trying to discount late-arriving Biden votes. And now that it's happening...everyone seems shocked.

Battalions of lawyers are preparing for Trump to try to steal the election. The president and his tame media put out reams of disinformation designed to make people lose faith in our voting system. How do elite conservatives respond? They pretend they don't know it's happening
and yet one more! it's as if it were an organized response ...and do note that my original tweet said nothing about all violence coming from the right. In case of a stolen election, I absolutely expect it to come from the other side.

Abortion was banned in Poland already: exceptions were made for rape, incest, a mother in danger of dying and fetuses so malformed they wouldn't survive. The new law takes that away; it will force women to give birth to babies that will die. That's the only point of it.
The previous set of rules was long accepted as a "compromise" between religious and non-religious Poles. The change is wildly unpopular, with support in the single digits. It is possible because the Constitutional Tribunal was illegally and unconstitutionally altered.
People are protesting both the level of disrespect shown to women who would, by definition, be enduring a personal tragedy, as well as the illegal assault on the courts.
