    BOOM. President Biden just released an ad of Nikki Haley saying he’s the most pro-union president, Tim Scott talking about the first bill Biden passed helping unions, & a Fox anchor saying how President Biden “prioritizes union jobs” & captioned it “Yes.” This is how it’s done.

    Victor Shi (@Victorshi2020) posted at 9:03 AM on Fri, Sep 22, 2023:
    Watch here. This is just so good. Yes, President Biden has been the most pro-union, pro-worker president of our lifetimes. Glad Republicans are helping us admit it!

    Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) has been indicted on federal corruption and bribery-related charges. The senator’s wife was also charged “in connection with their corrupt relationship with three New Jersey businessmen.”

    The senator was indicted on similar corruption charges in 2015. 

    The Recount (@therecount) posted at 8:59 AM on Fri, Sep 22, 2023:
    In the indictment, prosecutors in New York said they found “over $480,000 in cash—much of it stuffed into envelopes and hidden in clothing, closets, and a safe—” at the Menendez home, as well as “fingerprints and/or DNA” of a co-defendant.

    The only group willing to confront FBA, ADOS and the Freedman astroturf project is KHive.

    Many progressives won’t say jackshit.

    Warrenistas won’t say jackshit.

    Bernie’s folks fa sho won’t say anything.

    They’ll all sit there and silently cheer them on.

    It’s up to us.

    Just to put this in context, republicans cannot even agree to debate the pentagon spending bill. This bill usually passes by big margins.

    It failed twice this week.

    Kevin mccarthys House Republicans are in a state of crisis.

    This is the level of governance people kind of expected from McCarthy before he pulled off the debt ceiling deal.

    We’ll see if he finds a path to salvaging his speakership, but right now, it’s a shitshow.

    Politics is never as simple as the instant magic wand scenarios that get tossed around on here, but Chuck Schumer was always going to figure out how to work around Tommy Tuberville’s procedural antics eventually, and today he did. Hats off to Schumer.
