    “White House reporters using lofty language about democracy to whine about not getting holiday party invites from the White House” is the highest level of humiliation fetish I can even imagine

    The “independent legislature” case SCOTUS is hearing could end democracy. “They are asking the court to do something quite radical, which is to change the way elections have been run in this country for over two centuries. The consequences would be massive and intolerable.”

    NEW: Special Counsel Jack Smith just subpoenaed officials in Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin for Trump communications in the January 6th investigation. Jack Smith is no nonsense and will follow the facts wherever they lead. Trump should be so scared right now.

    This “top adviser on a past Democratic presidential campaign” has gotta be some clown who worked for Bernie. The pearl clutching for low income whites is the tell. Sanders and his cult of true believers have always valued the so-called white working class over all other voters.

    We in the Jewish community tried to warn you for years.

    Their rage over South Carolina going begore IA or NH is proof:

    Cosplay socialists are every bit as racist (and antisemitic) as maga, only young. They are not “woke” or “progressive”, they are white grievance populists.

    Not sure if White Christianity is different from Black Christianity? Please, review the senatorial race in the state of Georgia. The teachings of Jesus are clearly different.

    The House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol has decided to make criminal referrals to the Department of Justice, the panel’s chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson, told reporters Tuesday.

    Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, said the committee has not narrowed down the universe of individuals who may be referred.
    Asked whether Thompson believed any witnesses perjured themselves, he said, “that’s part of the discussion.”
    The committee is expected to meet later Tuesday.

    “Florida is where woke goes to die,” DeSantis said after his reelection victory last month.

    Last week, a federal judge asked his general counsel to define “woke.”

    He answered woke is “the belief there are systemic injustices in American society and the need to address them.”

    Need I remind you: Bernie Sanders and his top surrogates had a huge influence on the changes in the 2020 Democratic primary process. Bernie’s camp did everything they could to grease the skids for his second presidential run.

    And he still lost in a landslide. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    People do realize that the argument of having a red state go first is a bad faith argument that says more about you than anything else. What the fuck does being a “red state” have to do with the Democratic primary process?

    Absolutely nothing!

    Has anyone noticed FBA and their supposed call for reparations stopped immediately after Midterms?

    It’s almost as if they’re a coordinated effort to sow division in the Black electorate to benefit Republicans by appealing to a vulnerable minority ignorant of political context…
