    You’ve got to be kidding me! Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake (R) used stock footage of Russian soldiers marching in her campaign ad, falsely claiming they were the Arizona National Guard. Always Russia.

    Here’s a quietly wonderful thing I noticed:

    If you talk to someone who was in choir or band at a majority Black HS, you’ll eventually discuss those annoying fundraisers for uniforms, instruments, etc. & a SURPRISING number will casually say:

    “Oh, Dolly Parton paid for ours”

    (Cishet) Black male misogynoir makes no got-dam sense, given that Black women are the only ones holding our community together and usually the only ones ensuring that Black men have any opportunities in this society at all

    Folks it’s time to acknowledge that “evangelical” is no longer a Christian religous label but a political one focused on political power more than faith. Walker’s opponent is an ordained minister whose life has been a demonstration of faith and service.

    Republicans want America to abandon Ukraine, a sovereign nation invaded by a tyrannical dictator. They’d rather we support a man who’s killed thousands and threatened to strike our homeland with nuclear weapons.

    If Republicans win, Putin wins. Americans and Ukrainians lose.

    Herschel: “A lot of people don’t know it, but I was in charge of 6 hospitals.”

    A lot of people don’t know it because you just made that up. Pathological liar.

    From unanswered questions about 9/11 & the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, to conspiring w/ Putin to punish the US w/ higher oil prices, the royal Saudi family has never been a trustworthy ally of our nation. It’s time for our foreign policy to imagine a world without their alliance.

    The frustrating thing about all of this is how easily things can be
    And how much time must be spent rebuilding the things we already had, instead of spending time getting more.

    Because people fail to act until it’s too late.

    33 days. 💙💙💙

    Trump wanted Republicans in the Senate to vote against raising the debt ceiling because he wanted the economy under Biden to crash. Didn’t work.

    Trump wanted the Saudis to cut oil production to raise gas prices and inflation under Biden. Worked.

    I absolutely hate that I have to clarify this for the creeps out there, but teen girls are not peaking in their fertility. Their bodies, including their reproductive systems are not fully developed putting them at risk for complications and defects. They. Are. Children.

    If Saudi Arabia didn’t have such a high percentage of the world’s oil, the rest of the world would be able to say out loud what they really think about a savage kingdom still stuck in the Seventh Century.

    Why are these House & Senate races even close? If women, who reject the idea that they are 2nd class citizens who can’t decide their own medical care go out & vote (like they did in Kansas), Democrats will can win, even in heavily gerrymandered districts. #getoutthevote

    No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen (@NoLieWithBTC) tweeted at 4:58 PM on Wed, Oct 05, 2022:
    Dr. Oz allegedly oversaw the killing of puppies by injecting expired drugs directly into their hearts without sedation. They were then left in a garbage bag with living puppies who were their littermates.

    He should be under federal investigation, not running for Senate.
