1. Garland and the DOJ have to follow institutional and constitutional procedures in order to indict a target

2. Congress has to follow institutional and constitutional procedures in order to pass legislation
2/ 3. Biden can’t just wave a wand and instantly change everything (executive orders have limits)

4. The courts including SCOTUS have to follow the constitution

“This means that while SCOTUS has a conservative majority they have to abide by the constitution”
3/ 5. All of these procedures are divided into three branches which makes it difficult for an autocrat to have full control: That’s an incredibly good thing
4/ 6. However this also makes change and/or moving forward difficult as well. While with the latter these democratic institutions can be frustrating, its something that should be embraced not rejected it’s the vital part of democracy.

1/ Thread 🧵 Biden is the most experienced politician in the country he’s lived through the civil rights movement, and was a senator during watergate, Reagan, 9/11 etc.

Trust me I think he’s knows what he’s doing, let me explain
2/ there are two pieces to this,

The first is Biden’s economic agenda which includes

1. $1.9T ARP (pandemic relief)
2. $1.2T IIJA (infrastructure)
3. $1.6T-$2.4T BBB (environmental and middle class relief)
3/ The second part is voting rights legislation which includes

1. FTVA (redistricting guidelines, curbs future voter suppression)

2. JLVRAA (prohibits changing voting laws without clearance from DOJ)

Both of these parts are critical to maintaining our democracy.

1/Thread 🧵 if joy reid does get fired or is asked to leave MSNBC that would be a good thing

Here’s why
2/ Having a network that is right wing like for example Fox News is dangerous for our democracy because they’re manipulating their viewers into believing myths rather than fact for example

“ The Democrats are trying to take away your freedom and turn this country communist”.
3/ Not only is this false but it’s also dangerous if people don’t believe in truth/facts it becomes just about power that’s what’s happened with Fox News and their viewers and it’s had devastating consequences for the country.

1/ Thread Oligarchy with a caveat.

I get why people are angry with the non guilty verdict given to Rittenhouse. I don’t agree with the verdict either but we’re going to have to accept the verdict.

For those saying democracy is doomed this has never happened before I got news
2/ For you it has and we as a country have come a long way because up until the 1950s and 60s America “technically” was a democracy in reality though up until then it was an oligarchy.
3/ So what’s an oligarchy you may ask here’s the definition oligarchy “ a small group of people having control of a country, organization or institution”.
