The majority of Republicans rejected democracy.Americans ought to remember the names of these members who objected to the outcome of a free &fair election, the reps. who stuck by Trump in the impeachment vote &the senators who acquitted him after his trial…
First they hid behind obscure interpretations of the Constitution & false claims of voter fraud. Then, even after a violent mob came for them, they chose a pathological liar & would-be authoritarian over the rule of law. This group was willing to delay democracy & obstruct...
...the transfer of power to a duly elected president after their party’s leader incited a riot, they refused to hold him accountable & allowed an attack on their own branch of government to go unpunished.
They marched with Trump every step of the way fueling the doubt & anger that led to a violent insurrection. They conflated symbolic Democratic protests meant to spotlight voter suppression in previous elections with an outlandish & despotic attempt to undo a free & fair election.
They advanced lies about illegal voting &destroyed trust in the integrity of the election they supposedly sought to defend. These MOC’s doubled down on objections even after the attack citing voting irregularities as cover for their actions. Their names should be carved in stone.

Research shows that Kamala Harris may be the most targeted American politician on the internet, one who checks every box for the haters of the fever swamps: She's a woman, she's a person of color and she holds power.
Abuse directed at women is often personalized,attacking them based on their appearance &denigrating their intelligence. President Biden gets his share of smears but they tend to focus on his age; Those directed at Harris tend to reference sex, violence or misogynistic accusations
In the first week after Harris was named to the ticket, the sexualized hashtag #(heelsupharris) appeared 35,479 times in Twitter posts. Immediately following the running-mate announcement, false claims about Harris were being shared at least 3,000 times an hour on Twitter.

The US cannot sit idle in the face of such aggression. A STRONG RESPONSE IS LONG OVERDUE.
While Russia appears to be implementing a plan to establish a stronger foothold in Central Asia, the US does not appear to have any coherent strategy in Afghanistan.…
We should stop giving gifts to Putin such as the trump’s June announcement to withdraw 9,500 American soldiers from Germany & its efforts to assist Russia in rejoining the G7. Instead, waivers granted to Russians under the existing U.S. sanctions regime should be revoked.
Additional sanctions should be implemented targeted to those who benefit most from Putin’s regime. RUSSIA NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES FOR ITS EFFORTS TO US SOLDIERS!!!

He has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no self-awareness, no humility, no honour &no grace, all qualities with which his predecessor Mr. Obama was generously blessed…
Trump is a troll. And like all trolls, he is never funny and he never laughs; he only crows or jeers.
And scarily, he doesn’t just talk in crude, witless insults – he actually thinks in them. His mind is a simple bot-like algorithm of petty prejudices and knee-jerk nastiness.
Trump’s not even a spoiled rich-boy or a greedy fat-cat.
He’s more a fat white slug. A Jabba the Hutt of privilege.
He is that most unforgivable of all things to the British: a bully. Except when he is among bullies; then he suddenly transforms into a sniveling sidekick instead.

I believe in full equality for women and that means we should be treated as valid targets for criticism. By that standard, how many men throughout history have run hard for office or actively lobbied for a job without being called difficult for doing so?…
If we want to get anywhere we have to be ambitious enough to want to get there but strategic enough so that a man either doesn’t know we want to get there or doesn’t feel threatened by our desire to go somewhere he may not have the talent or tenacity to go himself.
The way we can change that is twofold: put more women in power so that our country gets comfortable with the idea of ambitious, powerful women.
The second way we change things: Parents can teach their girls that being ambitious is actually a good thing.

Fox “News” specializes in fearmongering & unrelenting alarmism, does not observe basic standards of journalistic practice, was a welcoming haven for “birtherism” (the racist lies about Obama’s birthplace)& has unfairly & inaccurately bashed Hillary Clinton…
Given First Amendment protections, Fox News can do pretty much what it wants on the air. It can shrug at Hannity’s excesses. It can allow Tucker Carson’s misleading rants on immigrants and crime. It can constantly undermine special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Trump.
What Fox News has become is destructive. To state the obvious: Democracy, if it’s going to function, needs to be based on a shared set of facts & the news media’s role is to seek out and deliver those facts. “Fox News is fundamentally in the business of spreading...

trump is the last person who should be setting standards on matters sexual. He’s on the record as having embraced “you can do anything” to them, reinforced recently during the Kavanaugh hearings. He conceded that Dr. Ford was “credible” but that didn’t...…
...keep him from shaming her at a rally or believing a “good man” not only be spared punishment but awarded a prestigious job.
For coeds, seeing Dr. Ford turned into the villain is proof that the most perfect complainants can be destroyed by coming forward.
For Trump, this moment in sexual jurisprudence left him very, very concerned about “young men in America,” for whom it’s “a very scary time.”
Young men can relax. The rules promoted by Trump’s Education Secretary Betsy Devos will make the world a less scary place for you.
