Open Thread | Please Be Aware of this Threat to Democracy

Senator Whitehouse has been on this for awhile. These people are dangerous. Period. They are a threat. Period.

A Dark Money group that you need to find out about and their rotten, dangerous agenda.

These are people who would like to strip us of our right to vote.

    Because they aid and abet the GOP every step of the way.

    The Republican Party strategy to win elections is to not talk about their actual policy positions, and the American news media considers that to be savvy.

    Phuck Floridians being ok with that…how is it even phucking LEGAL?

    Ron DeSantis literally used Florida taxpayer money to pay for a scheme to pick up migrants who were in Texas – that is, not even in Florida – and fly them to Massachusetts. How are Floridians possibly okay with that?

    Gotta say that one of the underappreciated and terrible aspects of Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbot teaming up to do some human trafficking has to be them purposely keeping local officials totally out of the loop, specifically to cause chaos and confusion for everyone involved.

    New York’s attorney general, Letitia James, rejected an offer to settle an investigation into Donald Trump and the Trump Organization, setting the stage for a lawsuit. She is also considering suing at least one of Trump’s children as part of her inquiry.

    Putting aside what I think of it all, there was so much meaning behind Meghan’s curtsy. She put everything into that curtsy. I almost feel like many people didn’t deserve to see it.

    When Republicans controlled the Federal govt, they engaged in child separation as their means to gin up the base.

    Now, instead, they’re engaging in a different kind of human trafficking.

    It’s still just human trafficking and kidnapping.

    Thanks for your concern, @wsj. To answer your question: yes, the trains are running on time.

    I need someone to explain this to me.
    Because, I’m not getting it.

    How….THE PHUCK…

    Does the Governor of FLORIDA….

    Charter jets to take migrants IN TEXAS….


    That was my confusion when I heard the story…
    I was like….’ what border, outside of water, does Florida have?

    only to find out that the migrants were in TEXAS?

    Good read. Interesting thread. See what happens when you have a party actually interested in GOVERNING and GOOD GOVERNMENT.

    So Democrats played some amazing hardball against the federal courts very quietly in the Inflation Reduction Act. And no one is really paying attention to it. I kind of love it. They preemptively stripped the federal courts of jurisdiction to throw out the drug pricing portion.🧵

    #OnThisDay in 1963, a bomb planted by white supremacists ripped through Sixteenth Street Baptist Church killing four little girls. The tragedy marked the third bombing in 11 days in Birmingham, Alabama following the federal order of Alabama school integration. #ANationsStory

    Since we came to office, we’ve created nearly 10 million jobs, a record for any presidency up to this point, and 3.7% unemployment—a nearly 50-year low in this country.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) September 14, 2022

    MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards.

    Backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love.

    This is a win for the economy and for the American people.

    Rail workers will get better pay, improved working conditions, and peace of mind around their health care costs.

    I thank both the unions and rail companies for negotiating in good faith.

    I love President Biden’s TRUE love of cars. I think it’s adorable. He cracks me up when he’s  in the cars. It just oozes from him- cars are one of his happy places. 

  16. rikyrah says:


    When I tell you that the MSM had the stories ready to go to BLAME 46 FOR THE RAIL STRIKE?

    They had them ready to go.
    Along with all the things going wrong in America because of the strike.


    And now…they has a sad….

    They were having a ‘Preparedness’ Fair in the plaza outside of my work building. Bunch of government agencies were giving out brochures and other goodies. 

    AARP was there too.

    And, …..the local health department…


    Filled out the application online on my phone. Got my Pfizer and went about my merry way. Even got a new vaccination card. 

    Thank you, Joe Biden. You and your Administration made this happen. And, I  won’t ever forget.

    NEW: More than half of the Republican nominees for US Senate — at least 19 of the 35 — have denied, cast doubt upon or actively tried to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

    Here is the most detailed breakdown of their words and actions:

    Something more important than the seizure of Mike Lindell’s phone has happened. NH Republicans nominated MAGA candidate Don Bolduc for US Senate, thereby making it more probable that Sen. Maggie Hassan (D) will be re-elected. It’s a pattern we’ve seen across America this year.

  20. rikyrah says:

    I can believe , but, it’s like WTF to these trifling tricks in the MSM trying to make something of POTUS and Dr. FLOTUS going back to Delaware to vote in person yesterday.

    One of them had the nerve to write in their tweet – there were no high profile races.

    An election with no high-profile races?


    As someone else tweeted – you know who vote in EVERY ELECTION – those right -wingers. Yet, nothing complaining about THEM Voting.

    Good on 46 for setting that example👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

    Good Morning Everyone 😊😊 😊
