In the most dramatic cases (life/Israel/China/authoritarian),” Beck said to open a lengthy Twitter thread. “I expected @realDonaldTrump to take control federally at the first opportunity. Here we are in a massive crisis.

Out of Their Children 41 replies
Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton talked about how she is working to “erode” white privilege out of her children during a conversation with Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) about voting rights in America. The conversation was part of a “Women for Biden” online event. “You know, congresswoman, certainly my children are young, but we believe they’re young but still citizens so we talked about the ratification of the 19th Amendment and women’s equality day but how fundamentally incomplete that victory was,” Clinton said. According to the former first daughter, the 19th Amendment was a “flawed victory” because “indigenous and black women didn’t have

Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) said President Donald Trump would incite his base supporters not to accept the results of the presidential election if he losses in November.Booker said, “I think he understands to some degree that he has to take extraordinary steps to try to win this election. What are those extraordinary steps? One, he’s attacked the United States Postal service. He’s attacked the whole mail-in ballot process. He’s literally gone as far to say that, if I don’t win, the election was rigged, which means that he is now, even if he loses, telling us all that he will break with a tradition that

Andrew Sullivan’s take on the danger posed to Dems by chaos in the streets is worth a read. I don’t agree with all of it but Sullivan seems to be making a genuine attempt to not be guided by talking points from either side of the aisle and it’s interesting to watch even if it’s not a completely successful effort. Frankly, some of what he says seems to at least partly contradict other things he’s saying but I guess that’s what happens sometimes when you’re reacting honestly and not just picking sides. Mostly what comes through is his disgust

enthusiasm is ‘Off The Charts!’ 30 replies
Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore offered a dire warning to Democrats after the conclusion of the Republican Convention, telling the “Resistance” that the level of voter excitement for President Trump far exceeds that for Democratic nominee Joe Biden. “Sorry to have to provide the reality check again, but when CNN polled registered voters in August in just the swing states, Biden and Trump were in a virtual tie. In Minnesota, it’s 47-47. In Michigan, where Biden had a big lead, Trump has closed the gap to 4 points,” Moore began a Facebook post on Friday. “Are you ready for a Trump victory? Are you mentally prepared to be outsmarted by Trump again?

From Democrat Mayors in Minnesota 28 replies
A number of Democrat mayors from Minnesota endorsed President Donald Trump for a second term on Friday as Vice President Mike Pence campaigns in the state. “Like many in our region, we have voted for Democrats over many decades. We have watched as our constituents’ jobs left not only the Iron Range, but our country. By putting tariffs on our products and supporting bad trade deals, politicians like Joe Biden did nothing to help the working class. We lost thousands of jobs, and generations of young people have left the Iron Range in order to provide for their families with good-paying jobs elsewhere.

So get this straight–based on the recommendation of doctors Fauci and Birx the US shut down the entire economy based on 9,000 American deaths to the China coronavirus.(Snip)But the Imperial College model Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx pushed was garbage and they recommended the destruction of the US economy using this model.(Snip)The CDC silently updated their numbers this week to show that only 6% of all coronavirus deaths were related to the coronavirus alone. The rest of the deaths pinned to the China coronavirus are attributed to individuals who had other serious issues going on. Also, most of the deaths are related to very old Americans.

The mainstream media’s outsized criticisms of President Donald Trump are unprecedented, but so, too, are their attacks on the president’s family.While criticism of the president’s children, including Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and son-in-law Jared Kushner can be considered legitimate since they have policy roles within the administration or have acted as a spokesperson for their father, the media have also assailed the president’s minor child, Barron. Democratic lawmakers, too. And now they’re going after his three-year-old grandson. As Ivanka spoke before introducing her president father Thursday ahead of his speech to close out the Republican National Convention, she related a story
