Open Thread | Our New Minority Leader, Congressman Hakeem Jeffries

Congressman Jeffries is the right man for this time.

They will try, but there are 15-20 Republicans who are in districts that President Biden won. The Democrats need to be on them and not let up.

I love this picture

    No one can deny Harry was financially abused by his relatives. That man admired Tyler Perry’s mansion like I look at million dollar mansions I can’t afford on real estate apps. Turns out Harry was the one living like Cinderella. Not Meghan.

    60 Minutes reached out to Buckingham Palace for comment. Palace representatives demanded that before considering commenting we provide them with our report prior to it airing, which is something 60 Minutes does not do.

    Bolsonaro came to Florida so he couldn’t get arrested in Brazil for instigating this.

    Did folks see the new Tabitha Brown stuff at Target?

    Whoever is managing Tabitha Brown’s @IamTabithaBrown deserves an award because her internet presence has since turned into:

    – Partnership with Target
    – Multiple brand deals
    – Emmy nominated children’s show
    – Co-owned vegan restaurant
    – Successful hair company #DonnasRecipe

    1.) The funding has already been provided. It cannot be “repealed” nor rescinded
    2.) The IRS did not “hire 87,000 new agents.” The funding enables them to hire that many agents over the course of TEN YEARS; including agents who retire or leave in that time
    3.) The @GOP is useless

    House progressives got a substantive legislative agenda, including COVID relief, infrastructure investment, gun reform, same sex marriage protection and inflation reduction. All law now.

    House conservatives got … rules changes that let them cripple the Speaker at any time.

    .@chiproytx “You and I were talking ahead of time, cameras, because C-SPAN control the cameras”
    @jaketapper “Are you in favor of that? Because I love the C-SPAN cameras”
    ROY: Look, I think drawing the American people into the conversation, into the debate on the floor..”

    I think C-SPAN should keep control of the cameras on the house floor. It makes our democracy more accessible, understandable, and exciting. Let the people see Democracy in action. #FreeCSPAN

    New Minority Whip Katherine Clark (D-MA) calls all the Republican talk about process a “smokescreen”:

    “They are going to use the debt ceiling as leverage to take American seniors hostage … This is all about forcing us to make cuts to Social Security … and Medicare.”

    No Lie with Brian Tyler Cohen (@NoLieWithBTC) tweeted at 7:16 PM on Sat, Jan 07, 2023:
    The new House rules package includes guarantees that Republicans will bring bills to the floor restricting abortions and making it easier for rich people to cheat on their taxes.

    This is was part of Kevin McCarthy’s agreement with MAGA to win the speakership.

    I would advise these feisty white socialists to not come for NYC Black folks on Twitter, cos they are not ready for the smoke

    The night Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field, I was struck by how much the stadium was filled with nothing but old white people. I’ve never been a fan of football. It’s feels like a gladiator game. Pain & other people’s perverse pleasure. No thanks.

    lurking behind the tweets of white Americans who vibe with the British Royal Family is the same type of low-key, cold-hearted sociopathic racism I’ve seen before, in other contexts

    Michael Strahan just said Buckingham Palace asked to see all the interview first, and ABC replied We dont do that as a serious news organization
    Strahan and Anderson Cooper were like: We dont do that over here

    I think Prince Harry was always going to leave. He was just able to do it safely and successfully because of Meg. ❤️

    Spare seems to corroborate what I’d read elsewhere in the past: that neither brother wanted the other as his best man because they weren’t really that close, but the Palace pressured them into it because the public image of “Diana’s boys” was so marketable.

    During the 1940s and 50s, civil rights activists were jailed for long periods of time for contempt of congress when they wouldn’t hand over their organization documents during communist investigations. Crazy how others can do the same with no consequences.

    House Republicans are preparing a special investigation, led by Jim Jordan, into the FBI and security agencies w/ broad power to see highly classified info & a mandate to scrutinize open criminal investigations…like Trump/Jan6.
