Open Thread | The Voter Suppression from the GOP…It is Everywhere..And What is the Ultimate Plan?

There is a reason that Republicans passed all of these Voter Suppression Laws – they can’t win without it. It’s what they do. And, it’s not an isolated incident.
Voter suppression from all over the country. It’s who they are.

I have to believe that if it was a group of armed Black people at Mail Dropboxes, something would be done.

Funny how this didn’t happen when the Democrat was Governor.😒

What is it all about?

    This is big news:

    CPS revokes charter of touted but troubled all-boys school
    Two campuses of Urban Prep will remain open for students, but CPS took over operations of the school Wednesday from its leaders, citing a litany of problems.
    By Sarah Karp Oct 26, 2022, 6:15pm CDT

    The Chicago Board of Education voted unanimously Wednesday to revoke the operating charter for Urban Prep Academies and start the unprecedented process of taking over the celebrated but troubled all-boys school.

    It represents a stunning turn for the city’s only all-boys public school known nationally for nurturing young Black men on the South and West sides and getting 100% of graduates each year into college. Urban Prep leaders, students and alumni fought the takeover.

    The school district recommended the non-renewal of the school’s charter for violations related to alleged sexual misconduct, financial troubles and the refusal of Urban Prep’s board to comply with conditions set by the district.

    Urban Prep can appeal to the Illinois State Board of Education. But the action by the Chicago Board of Education marks the beginning of the end for the charter school network. Urban Prep was known for students proudly wearing blue suit coats and ties and for a daily creed where they repeat their belief in their potential, brotherhood and the community.

    School district officials and board members on Wednesday said they believe in the Urban Prep model and emphasized that Urban Prep’s two high school campuses wouldn’t close. Instead, they will either become part of an existing high school or a CPS school. Current staff will be asked to reapply for their jobs and the school district said it will try to keep teachers and others in place.


    Urban Prep officials also called CPS’ takeover attempt an “attack,” and said the school district is “more interested in dragging down our leadership and school than in the successful education of young Black men.”

    Before the vote, board members heard from many Urban Prep students. They spoke of the brotherhood experienced by students. They talked about starting Urban Prep as boys and being shaped into men, showing them a good example of what a Black man should be.

    They said Urban Prep is a safe environment where teachers care.

    “We have fathers at Urban Prep, people who have shown us to be proud Black men,” said Latrell Scott.

    Miles Brown, a junior at Urban Prep, said the school has given him opportunities that children that look like him don’t usually get. He said he went on college tours every year.

    “If there was ever a time I needed support, the staff made themselves available for us for check-ins,” he said.

    IF you are thinking about leaving Twitter for TribelSocial:

    If you’re thinking of signing up for TribelSocial, I’ll warn you now, DON’T. You are opening yourself up to significant cyber security issues and data harvesting by a social media network operated by two people with known deceitful fundraising activities and unethical practices.

    It’s owned & operated by Omar & Rafael Rivero. In September 2022, they raised $800,000 for an election fund and donated none of the money to federal candidates, but donated $250,000 of the fund to Blue Deal LLC, a company allegedly women-owned but actually owned by Rafael Rivero.

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has shown yet again that Republicans are no longer bothering to disguise their extremism and contempt for voters’ intelligence.

    Jennifer Rubin’s Major Points:

    Republicans want politicians to control women’s pregnancies.
    Republicans won’t hesitate to back former president Donald Trump.
    Republicans will instigate a constitutional crisis if they do not win in 2024.
    Republicans no longer pretend to support economic populism.
    Republicans have no plan to fight inflation.
    Republicans revel in cruelty.

      Added from another poster:

      I’d add a seventh:

      • Republicans will throw the world economic system into complete disarray, destroy the full faith and credit of the United States, and obliterate the dollar’s standing as the global reserve currency, by refusing to raise the debt ceiling and defaulting on the US’s debts.

      Oh, almost forgot, there’s an eighth as well:

      • Republicans will do everything in their power to damage, destroy, and repeal Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and the Affordable Care Act.

    Florida takes $51,000,000,000 more dollars from the federal government than it produces in taxes. That’s called a welfare state.

    New York gives $22 billion more than it receives back. That’s called solvency.
