    “..Monkey, ape, tranny.. man..

    That’s still very much the descriptors wielded to dehumanize America’s historic First Lady..

    It is what fully black, dark skinned black girls have to look forward to.. not the white-washed amalgam version that the gaslighters insist somehow herald a new era where ‘little black girls can now see themselves’… ‘representation’ as they call it.. it really isn’t..

    Yeah.. even kids know the difference.. attempts to gaslight from here to eternity, notwithstanding.. even they know the truth.. they know who gets called ‘pretty’, who gets the princess roles, the choice bits.. who gets protected, chivalry… and as they grow up, who gets the choice gigs when ‘black’ person is called for.. who’s favored in casting call auditions…”

    GOP Senators (led by Grassley) have stripped the Special Immigrant Visa program from the NDAA. Thousands of Afghan allies remain in the pipeline. Despicable but not surprising given this has long been the desire of many in the Trump Admin & Republicans who push nativist agendas.

    This gets to my major complaint about so many “independent” “third party” “Forward” efforts. What are you actually breaking with the Democratic Party over? Or are you just annoyed by their progressive activists.

    One More Time: If you are an independent at this point you are nothing more than a coward. One side is trying to save this country while the other is actively seeking to destroy it. The only thing you are independent of is brain cells & dignity.

    Text from a friend, who is black, in Sinema:
    “Warnock won and now she’s trying to undermine what he achieved. Whenever we achieve something great or make some progress, there’s always a white person there to try to take it away, and we’re not supposed to ever talk about it.”

    • Liza says:

      I don’t think Sinema was aiming at Rev Warnock specifically. And I don’t think it was about taking something away from a black person. Sinema is a naricssist, it was totally about her.

      This feels like a gut punch to the Democrats. According to Sinema, nothing changes as far as the “work” she is doing in the Senate. It’s business as usual. So why do this?

      Sinema must know by now she couldn’t get re-elected to catch dogs. No matter how you slice the electorate in AZ, her disapproval is over 50 percent. She’s not going to be the new John McCain. She has not built a coalition of conservative voters across party lines. And unless she’s delusional, she can’t possibly be thinking she can get re-elected as an independent.

      Sinema’s name is the very definition of political corruption. She pulled a bait and switch on the voters and sold her vote. She is a traitor. Now she’s on the TV, gaslighting the whole nation, telling us that she’s always been “an independent voice for Arizonans”, serving their best interests, and “will continue to do so.”

      It’s difficult to imagine what she has accomplished by this except to tell the Democrats she hates them too. We know how the voters feel about her in AZ and I would think it’s not much different among the Democrats in Congress.

      Her last card to play is to become a Republican, and that certainly doesn’t seem out of the realm of possibility.

      But if she were smart, she would cash out and walk away. According to Open Secrets, her cash on hand is just under 8 million. That’s not a bad payday for a sell-out.

        I might add that if Ruben Gallego is going to run for her seat in 2024, the Democrats need to get busy and figure out how to make him a household name this coming year. He seems like he has good candidate potential, but now is the time to find out or find someone else.

        People are afraid Sinema will run as a spoiler and the GOP candidate could be Scary Kari Lake.

        The Democrats are going to have to fight and spend a lot of money to keep this seat.

    Krysten Lea Sinema switching her party affiliation from Dem to Independent proves:

    1) She’s a coward that doesn’t want to be challenged
    2) She’s not to be trusted by no Black or Latino woman.

    • Liza says:

      Well, Kyrsten can be trusted by Big Pharma lobbyists and Private Equity lobbyists and others who paid for her vote. She never let them down, not even once. She never reneged on her part of the deals she cut with her wealthy, corporate donors.

      As for the rest of us, she told us to “F*** off.”

    I can’t ascertain why Paul Whelan was in Russia. Where’s y’alls smoke about how he shouldn’t have been there? And what say you about him being a citizen of 3 countries?

    A citizen of 4 countries, an ex marine with a bad discharge, did military tours in the middle east, and was caught either going over or coming back over the Russian border. Whelan isn’t some random guy that got lost. I think he works for them folks that have three letter names.

    Also, he’s charged with ESPIONAGE, not cannabis possession (medical CBD, not THC).
    Talk about comparing apples to oranges!

    We weren’t gonna get Whelan. Even his own brother says the Biden Admin. did the right thing and got the best possible outcome.

    About Sinema, here’s some thoughts about her maneuvering:
    Boxes Dems in for 2024: If they run a Dem primary, she splits the vote and guarantees the Republicans a win

    We won with a Democrat in 2022.

    2024 will be a Presidential year.

    I’m willing to take a chance on an actual Democrat in 2024.

    Like I said..there’s a lot that goes into running for office. A lot that the party helps with.

    Even phucking Bernie uses the Democrats to run and then does that independent shyt.

    This ain’t Utah.

    There is no reason why the Democratic Party can’t find an actual Democrat in Arizona. A Democrat – not a leftist- that can’t go out, say that I represent Democrats in Arizona, and keep it moving.

    For the new Governor and AG of Arizona, it is known that she DID NOTHING TO HELP THEM while the rest of the Democratic Party was all hands on deck for them.

    Especially now that Democrats know?

    Those wanting to run now have 2 legit years to start right now for 2024.

    • Liza says:

      Well, House Rep Ruben Gallego has been positioning himself to primary Sinema and now he doesn’t need to take her on. I’ve been watching him and I’m just not sure. Seems like a decent enough guy and being Latino certainly doesn’t hurt with turning out Latino Democrats and independents.

      If the GOP gets wise and stops running election deniers and MAGA goofballs, this seat could be lost. They most assuredly see it as a pick up for the GOP.

      There’s no comparison between Bernie and Sinema but it hadn’t occurred to me that Sinema might actually change back to Democrat when election time rolls around.

      Well, I can’t read her mind. All I can tell you is she’s a bait and switch traitor and can’t be trusted. They let her smell the money and her vote went up for sale.

      There should be a national petition demanding her resignation.

    During the peak of the pandemic, when everything felt so bleak, the act of stitching, purling, casting on and off is how I kept my anxiety at bay. Practicing it roots me in this idea that I talk about in my book, The Light We Carry called “the power of small.” 🧶

  19. Liza says:

    So how about that Kyrsten Sinema?

    Y’all believe me now? I guess she didn’t have the balls to become a Republican. But one thing is for certain, if she thinks she can get re-elected in the state of Arizona as an independent she is wrong.

    But I’m guessing she won’t run in 24. As an independent there is no party organization to support a campaign, and she is very unpopular. Unless she’s delusional, she must know she couldn’t get elected to catch dogs.

    At least this opens the door for a real Democrat to start building a campaign for 24.

    • Liza says:

      Rikyrah, what do you think of this situation with Sinema?

      Blog for Arizona is bound to have a scathing post today which I’ll link here.

    It’s understandable that people are furious over what the white neighbor tried to do to this little girl.

    I find it interesting that the cop was so kind. With a different cop this might have had a completely different outcome. Or if it had been a little boy instead of a little girl.

    White supremacists are here to stay, I’m afraid. But this community dealt with this particular white supremacist quite effectively, and that’s the only defense. You cannot change people but communities can make life extremely unpleasant for those who would torment people of color, especially children. It takes a village…
