BTW, I just spoke with an acquaintance who is middle/lean right.

What he said is the GOP is gonna win the midterm because «the red states are thriving because they stayed open and the blue states are bankrupt. »

He also said the GOP is gonna win because « people aren’t going
back to work because the Dems are paying them to stay home. »

This is the SECOND time I heard these two points verbatim.

Both from white men, but of VERY different socio-economic classes.

One was in the very class that actually really benefited from the help, and even he is
mad at Dems for helping those «freeloaders. »

My point is, these GOP talking points are LANDING HARD, and we are talking past them, not AT them, the same as on socialism.

We need to learn how to spend FOCUSED and relentless attention DIRECTLY ON BLOWING UP these points!
Because the ONE thing the GOP does better than the DEMS by a country mile is find and use the words that tickle their deeply held (but not socially acceptable) beliefs.

In this case, the deeply held belief is that white people are subsidizing Black people in Blue states, and
that poor and Black people are that way because they are by nature lazy. And if you make life cushy for them, they won’t strive and work hard. That is why the talking point about paying people to stay home resonates SO MUCH with the GOP and a LOT of middle people!

to think those voters will reward Dems for saving our economy, or curbing COVID.

The GOP is working at fever pace to blame Fauci and China (not their master and his incessant lies) for COVID! It’s working, because we are focused on passing legislation, and they are focused on
building narratives and leveraging their advantages.


Biden is absolutely going to be kneecapped in 2022 if he doesn’t have the stomach to go hard at the GOP.

And so far.... there is no sign that he is ready or willing to do it.

So... let’s take stock of things.

Garland had to know that this bomb about surveillance of Dems was going to drop.

But did he get out in front of it? Did he set out a plan of action? Did he forcefully reassure the American public that he would hold everyone accountable?
All he does is react. And only when he is pushed to.

The decisions he’s made so far have SUCKED!

And that starts with not telling us BEFORE the media, that DOJ needs to be cleaned out.

And before you get whining about him not having much time in the job, how long would it
take YOU to tell America that their justice department is deeply corrupt?

I would have run to Congress first thing, asking for money & heads to execute a thorough plan to clean house.

I would have done in it within a couple WEEKS, not months, because that’s how people who

Dear Dems:

Our GREATEST and most difficult to overcome asset for 2022 is YOUNG PEOPLE!

Gen Z is almost +30 points D, and is the generation MOST morally grounded and black & white in its views.

It is the generation most insistent that government help people.
Gen X is the least likely to believe that and the most resentful of government helping people.

So let’s make a plan to DELIGHT YOUNG PEOPLE and develop a focused, thoughtful and intentional program to register them to vote and get them voting in teams.

NOTHING would be
more impactful on 2022.

Joe can win HUGE points with this population by cancelling as much student debt as he possibly can.

It’s fiscally smart because it will massively stimulate spending...

But it’s also SUPER politically smart.

All the GOP whining about freeloaders

When TFG was placed in the WH having lost the popular vote and cheated to win, he made not one single cabinet appointment to include or appease Dems.

Not one.

To the contrary, he appointed people to antagonize & “own the libs.”

His cabinet was full of unqualified zealots,
who were loyal to HIM. They were appointed to dismantle their agencies, not run them. Any who did not get with that program were swiftly moved out.

No appointment more clearly demonstrated Trump’s hatred & contempt for Democrats generally, and Black people in particular,
than appointing Jeff Sessions as AG.

It was an absolute EFF YEW to Dems, and the kiss of death to equality under the law.

Sessions was one of the worst, most partisan AGs in our history.

We didn’t think there could be a worse one... until we got to know Bill Barr.

Dear @POTUS @WHCOS @VP @PressSec

Mr. President, you are the person with both the power and the responsibility to save our democracy.

You asked us to entrust you with that awesome responsibility, and we did.

There was never a guarantee that you would be able to govern as you
wanted to. There was never a promise that it would be easy or always popular.

It is actually not a good thing for you to remind the American people the peril we face.


The question is... do you?

If democracy is hanging by a thread, whose job is it to save it?
Ruthlessness is not your nature, but it is precisely what it needed right now.

You have the tools at your disposal, use them.

Your adherence to tradition and norm is only allowing the GOP’s disregard for the same to devastate our country.

We hired YOU to save our democracy.

Just so you get the political imbalance in FL, TODAY, the FL GOP will likely start contacting GOP voters to attack Val Demings.

They will be sending out mailers, emails & FB ads, keep them coming

So, is there an entity in FL doing the same on the Dem side, contacting voters to
land punches on Rubio?🤔


That kind of stuff can’t be done by a 501(c)(3). It’s usually done by campaigns... once they raise enough to pay for it.

The FL Dems do not go toe to toe with the FL GOP in this, largely because they aren’t funded to do that and don’t
have the infrastructure to do that.

So.... do you think we should maybe CHANGE something to fix this serious imbalance?

That’s why we need

We need an entity that does direct comms to voters year-around & is able to gather Intel and data to make our

We absolutely believe that you have what it takes to RUN this country. You show it everyday.

We’re just not sure you have what it takes to SAVE this country.

You started off with sincere faith & optimism that you could work with the GOP to do that.

We get that
But you CAN’T be the last guy in America who sees that it’s not going to happen.

We need you to accept and process that “bipartisanship” will only include a handful from the GOP, and show that you’re ready to move forward.

We also need you to respond to and appreciate our
demands for justice and accountability. Start with removing DeJoy.

Then have a sit down with Garland.

And if giving him direction makes you squeamish, give him a pink slip.

But please don’t wait until he does massive damage to do so.

We can’t keep letting our democracy
