5 months ago MAGA insurrectionists occupied the Capitol in order to murder the vice-president & block the transfer of power to duly elected Democratic administration. Now MAGA Party is publicly blocking any investigation into the violent insurrection …
(1) We really know very little about how (well planned) insurrection was orchestrated (2) We have held none of the leaders who orchestrated the insurrection accountable (3) Without accountability the leaders are very publicly planning on doing it again until they are successful.
US elites figure republic will keep winning these insurrections, but MAGA purging anyone who was pro-republic, eliminating laws & norms that helped US prevail in their last insurrection. As long as we don’t hold them accountable MAGA insurrections will keep getting more dangerous
Even if we are likely to fight off any given MAGA insurrection, problem is that we only need to lose once for US to be done.

Reason I'm not freaked out Republican SCOTUS taking on abortion next year is because Roe is functionally done already: way too many women in US have no access to women's healthcare due to insane distances & hurdles (costing too much time & money) to get healthcare, even if legal.
Access to women's healthcare is necessary, moral, and super popular: we are facing a crisis of infant & maternal mortality in US because Republican are anti-women & anti-life.
Path forward needs to be to fight state-by-state & federally to get necessary women's health access everywhere: my point is that the Republican-controlled SCOTUS will do everything they can to cause suffering & death, we need to move our hope & fight to where we can help.

7 days ago the former Israeli ambassador to US (Ron Dermer) gave a televised talk to remind US that it is the policy of the Israeli government to cultivate people who actively hate US Jews. Dermer himself refused to even meet with orgs representing the vast majority of US Jews.
Israel is filled with amazing people, who have done astonishing things in technology, agriculture, etc. I am so lucky to have several amazing Israeli friends & colleagues who I think the world of. The current Israeli regime does not represent them well both at home & abroad.
From the second I logged onto this platform, simply because people know I am Jewish, I get bombarded with questions, comments, attacks about Israel. What these trolls don't understand is how entirely disconnected most American Jews are from Israel.

Before today's job numbers are released, Republicans would like to remind you that we lost nearly 3 million jobs under Trump, making it easier for US to gain jobs under his successor Biden: not sure if that is quite the positive disclaimer for Republicans they think it is.
Wow, these job numbers are super disappointing! 266k would be great in normal times, but everyone was expecting way higher.
Clearly Biden's stimulus was not too much as more job losses than expected have turned permanent. This is a further case for the massive infrastructure bill which means: clean infrastructure, investment in our future, and (clearly pressing) Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.

I welcome robust discussions about @RepLizCheney's policies: I disagree with her on almost every substantive issue. And, I agree that it *should* not be seen as heroic for US representative to be pro-republic. But, fact is Cheney will lose all her power by backing US over Trump.
There is nothing wrong with simultaneously applauding @RepLizCheney's fortitude in protecting the republic from existential threat of MAGA, and also disliking every other policy positions she hold. Actually that is good thing: a functioning republic needs *loyal* opposition.
The way this is supposed to work: First, we all agree that US should be a republic. Then, we debate over our conflicting policies with the knowledge that we are all pro-republic. Republican leadership now is all anti-republic, except for Cheney. And that is not easy for her.

*Thrilled* that after long career using his incredible skills *dude is amazing at marketing politics* @FrankLuntz trying to do something good, rather than evil. But he should provide more accountability for what he did to US, really work to make it better, before we embrace him.
.@FrankLuntz (1) key behind @newtgingrich "Contract with America" which really ushered him era of Republicans having no policy other than tax cuts for rich & empty slogans (2) mastermind behind denying science to fight R&D to combat climate change ...
.@FrankLuntz (3) convinced Republicans to just fight anything Obama did, during grave recession, reasoning slow recovery is good for Republicans (4) branded ObamaCare as government takeover of healthcare, denying millions desperately needed Medicaid expansion
