Hey guys it's 3 days from July 4th, and ya know what that means! It's the five year anniversary of when 8 Republicans thought it prudent to--on our frickin Independence Day--go to the Kremlin and prostrate themselves before Vladimir Putin, who attacked our election 8 months earlier and is currently committing genocide in Ukraine. He shares their white nationalism & hatred for democracy, so he tried to help them (& is still trying) overthrow ours. So salute The Prostrate Eight(!), as @Milbank called them: Sens. Richard C. Shelby (Ala.), Steve Daines

Hi I'm a Republican, we nominated a candidate last week who praised Roe v Wade for protecting "white life" and support Trump who called African nations "shithole countries" & Mexicans "rapists." We promoted Steve Scalise to leadership after we found out he spoke at a white supremacist conference, and since then have seen MTG, Gosar and others do the same and, nah, big deal. We'll cool when Senator Cassidy says if you take out Black women, LA's mortality rate is just dandy. And obv I could go on...& on. But that damn Rex Chapman said Clarence Thomas

Let's not pretend Republicans could give 2 f*ks about abortion as "life." Or you can ask GOP Rep. Scott Desjarlais of TN, who's so "pro-life" he pushed both his wife and mistress--a patient of his--to get abortions usnews.com/news/blogs/was… #RoeVsWade #roevwadeoverturned You could also ask former "pro-life" GOP Congressman Tim Murphy, who also pressured his mistress to get an abortion he was so devoted to his belief wrt "life." usnews.com/news/politics/… #RoeVWade #roevwadeoverturned

That anyone's even debating the legitimacy of this SCOTUS is in & of itself ridiculous. 5 of the 6 RW Justices were put on by a POTUS who LOST the popular vote. Approved by a Senate where their side is represented by millions(?) tens of millions (?) fewer voters. But that CONT wasn't enough. So they stole a seat from President Obama, not allowing him to put his choice on the Court, and shoved another one on the Court days before an election. Two of them have legit accusations of sexual harassment/abuse in their pasts, 3 were political operatives CONT

Not gonna write another long thread on guns rn, just give my personal opinion as someone who's worked closely on the issue for yrs w Everytown, Brady, etc, has written dozens of pieces on the issue & was once a competitive shooter who enjoyed target shooting. Guns are a public 1 health crisis in this country. A pandemic that beyond mass shootings kills via homicide, suicide, accident, negligence every day. Like w all public health crises, be it smoking or drunk driving, the goal is to improve health & reduce death. So AFAIC, if what we've seen so far 2

So tired of this s*t. NYT, Chuck Todd, similar stenographers..look at Chattanooga today, another mass shooting. Can you ask Republicans as part of the job-like thing you do--& I'm not being sarcastic, I want to hear their f*king answers--too many doors in downtown Chattanooga? Or was it all bc no God in the classroom, no fathers in their homes...was there not enough armed security in downtown Chattanooga & do we now need armed security on every street corner in America?? Can you ask them these questions bc getting these answers (or non-answers) is your

My thread on how we can keep all the guns but stop the killers at the one and only ONE DOOR any building anywhere can ever have for any reason. Start w the old doggy door trap Then use the ONE AND ONLY DOOR to flame the bad guy w a gun's head

As a reminder we have zero proof—ZERO—gun laws work. You know, if you don’t include Japan, U.K., Belgium, Canada, Iceland, Romania, Norway, Austria, Argentina, Netherlands, South Korea, Italy, Greece, Chile, France, Spain, Sweden, Singapore, Portugal, Israel, Czechia, Denmark, Taiwan, Switzerland, Poland, Germany, Luxembourg, Malta, Australia, Estonia, Croatia, New Zealand, Ireland, Slovakia, Latvia, Slovenia, San Marino, Andorra, Monaco, Lithuania…ignore all those obv not applicable examples & how, oh how, do we ever figure out this complex puzzle???

My 12-yr old son had a soccer tournie this weekend. He won! Which is awesome. But not why I'm writing this. From the field he played on, this pic below was a view. Just some old crappy building, right? Well, no. This was the site of the first Voice of America station that could reach the entire world. This was the '40s, so putting a station of this strength off the coasts where Nazi subs couldn't get em, we figured, made sense. Even more sense for it to be in West Chester, OH as we steered the world away from Nazism's evil totalitarian twin: Stalinism.

They're just being honest about it now. How will they enforce it? Think TX, where they incentivize friends & strangers to spy on you, share ur personal health w the state. Think of an ICE-like force created to run investigations into pregnant women, those deemed abortion "risks" and those who recently miscarriaged. Think about this force tagging women w tech--chips?--to make sure they track your every movement. Harassing your friends, employers, spouse...out-of-control, abusive men using the equivalent of swatting to "make them pay." Cameras installed in

A few folks have DMd about what Steve Schmidt’s been burning down the Internet w for the past, oh, 16 hrs. Bc I wrote a book on McCain (The Real McCain) in 2008. Here’s what I’ll say 1) I don’t know @SteveSchmidtSES, in fact we’ve never once spoken. I do know folks in his orbit, but this is from me, my sources in McCain World then and since. 2) Everything Steve is saying about the personalities, &…I don’t have all the info he has, but it’s consistent w things I was told 3) Sadly, McCain’s behavior in Steve’s telling comports 100% w what I learned. It’s

@JDVance1 So…No electoral college, equal tv time for candidates & election day off for voters, you’re a fan? You also like guaranteed healthcare, sane gun laws & 5 weeks guaranteed vacay? Yep, very first world. And all it took was not having a Republican Party Hey folks, launching a Youtube commentary channel, if all goes well, tomorrow. If you liked this comment, info, tone, this is exactly the kinda thing I'll be doing. Follow me here @cliffschecter for more info on the channel, which I'll provide once we kick off! Thanks!

We really gotta keep our eye on the ball w what Russia's up to. We've seen a lot about Ukraine, the attack on our election--of course--even Leave. But they're part of a *much* larger global offensive. We tend to pay attention to Western (read: white) countries, bc that's what 1 Our media covers most of the time. But there's a lot more goin on out there. @JonHutson has done an incredible job covering the coup they backed in Sudan, which helped lead to genocide. WaPo recently had this piece just kinda mixed between other stories washingtonpost.com/world/2022/03/… 2

FYI, if you believe Republicans on child porn, GOP Senators supported Trump after a 13-yr old girl credibly accused him of rape and he admitted wandering thru beauty pageant changing rooms to see naked teenage girls. Republican Senators supported Roy Moore, a guy who's boss move was calling up girls in 8th grade trig class to ask them out on dates. Republican Senators have never had a thing to say about the fact that the longest GOP Speaker of the House ever, Denny Hastert, went to prison for molesting teenage boys. Republican Senators currently have

So I only looked at digital versions, but If I'm not missing something...

HOW IS THE FACT THERE WAS A POWERPOINT CREATED BY TRUMP/TOP REPUBLICANS FOR A *COUP* THAT INCLUDED CALLING A *FAKE NATIONAL EMERGENCY* NOT A FP ABOVE THE FOLD STORY IN EVERY NEWSPAPER?? Hi editors, political reporters, etc.. just trying to understand... Do. You. Want. To. Live. In. A. Democracy? Does a private email server seem more important than Seven F*king Days In May nearly coming to America? Do you know what happens to "enemies of the ppl" in autocracies??

Quick thread. For yrs I've written/spoken about what the white nationalist right--early on represented by the NRA--was working towards. A society where everyone's armed, disputes are settled w arms like in Kenosha, so everyone *must be* armed. A smart biz model for a sociopath /1 But that's only a part of this. Another key part is, quite simply, white rule. W enough racism embedded into our society that Kyle Rittenhouse is alway seen as a boy, while Tamir Rice is a *tyrant,* more guns guarantees *their way of life.* Protection vs multicultural America /2

Just gonna go back to what I've been saying ad nauseam. Democrats have no aggressive messaging echo chamber, execution, etc. CRT is not an issue. Covid, corruption & Q are issues. There were ppl waiting to see JFK in Dallas today FFS. And yeah, most of the MSM sucks. But what 1/ if, and try and stay with me here--we messaged their allowing kids to die in school/elderly to die in homes of COVID, their Q insanity/Couping, their utter corruption the way they treat imaginary issues like CRT being taught or real issues they bastardize beyond recognition 2/

It's pretty simple, Virginia. If Democrats & forward thinking Independents turnout today there's no way Youngkin can win. You outnumber them. But you must VOTE. You must look at what Terry McAuliffe did for you last time he was Gov, look at the COVID stimulus bill Joe Biden /1 passed, groundbreaking. The infrastructure bills that will pass--and in any form they do, they will equal Great Society kinda investment in our own ppl. You must look at how Governors Brownback & Jindal literally destroyed the public school systems in Kansas and Louisiana /2

When I talk about messaging asymmetry...I don't wanna pick on Rep. Bennie Thompson, an admirable public servant. Yes, it's a cultural difference, but 1 that always sees Ds take a generous tone w/ the evil truth, while the GOP excoriates Ds based on lies. What does this do? [Cont] It kills us in headlinesl, mostly what ppl see, & on tv, where controversy sells. Thompson on Jan 6 “My humble opinion is that there’s some information that he would deem troubling for the Republican Party if it got out, and I think he will do everything possible to prevent that"

1) From me in @thedailybeast Mitch, who's having a 😢 about...corporate speech: "Mitch...is mad because large employers in Georgia eventually got around to responding to a voter suppression law there that may as well have been authored by Lester Maddox" thedailybeast.com/the-money-mons… More from the piece: "...corporations were welcome to bestow wheelbarrows of cash upon Republicans, to relieve him of the burden of having to actually develop policy ideas to improve Americans' lives and get around the fact he's a charisma event horizon" thedailybeast.com/the-money-mons…
