@JoeBiden
United States government official

The United States is the only industrialized country in the world with no national paid family leave policy. It’s a disgrace.

We must pass the American Families Plan.

Take a break for the Insurrectionist Roundup

Doug Jensen of Iowa is accused of leading the 1st wave toward US Senate, with pocketknife in his possession

Feds say Jensen admitted being "firm believer" in QAnon, proponent of Donald Trump declaring martial law and said Biden's election was "fraudulent"

But ... wait till you see how Jensen responds..

Jensen says *he* is the victim of "numerous conspiracy theories" .. and that the pocketknife was for protection at the Trump rally

There's more.... so much more...



Scott MacFarlane
@MacFarlaneNews
Jensen's motion accused US Capitol Police officer Eugene Goodman of being a "threat" and wielding baton "over Jensen's head"

Then ... he takes argument in different direction...





eNews
Jensen says "no one could have predicted the events of late 2020, culminating on Jan 6"

He cites "billionaire reality TV host", George Orwell's 1984, "media lies" and Alex Haley



Scott MacFarlane
@MacFarlaneNews
Doug Jensen, who allegedly led the mob on Jan 6 outside the Senate, then says he went to the Capitol at the direction of Donald Trump ... to demonstrate he was a true patriot... but now feels deceived by a "pack of lies"

Jensen is seeking release from the DC jail, where he says he's "languished" for six months (I'll note: the Insurrection was five months ago)

And that he wants to get his affairs in order for "resolution" of his case (which could indicate possible plea deal)

ARRAIGMENT tomorrow for Doug Jensen in DC federal court. I will be covering and keep you updated

In plain English: A married couple entered the U.S. from El Salvador. They're protected from deportation under a program in which the U.S. doesn't send people back to nations in crisis. The couple applied to become lawful permanent U.S. residents. SCOTUS said they don't qualify.

Here is the opinion in Sanchez v. Mayorkas: https://supremecourt.gov/opinions/20pdf/20-315_q713.pdf

https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1401724566636924928.html

https://twitter.com/palmerreport/status/1401724566636924928?s=21

1) Manchin and Murkowski both need voting rights legislation to pass in order to get reelected in their red states (Murkowski will be primaried from the right). It’s why voting rights legislation will ultimately pass. But neither wants to be seen as rigging their own reelection.

2) What I mean by that is they’ll each face a far right reelection opponent who will accuse them of having “rigged” their own reelection by supporting voting rights legislation. And a lot of red state voters will fall for this line of crap.

3) So yeah, Manchin is doing everything he can to give the appearance that he’s against voting rights legislation, because that helps him in his reelection bid. But he’ll have to pass voting rights legislation, because that also helps him in his reelection bid.

4) So what you’re seeing right now is a very awkward dance from a mediocre politician who’s trying to be so loud about opposing voting rights legislation, no one notices when he ends up quietly voting for it.

5) And when I say “mediocre politician” I mean he’s not as slick at selling this line of shit or walking this tightrope as he’d like to be. A slicker or savvier politician would have an easier time of pulling off this particular balancing act.

6) At this point it appears Manchin wants to pass the key parts of HR1, but he doesn’t want to vote for something called “HR1.” Why does this distinction matter? He can then campaign in his red state on having killed HR1, while having also enacted HR1.

7) Biden and Schumer are going to let Manchin play this semantic game as long as it gets passed in the end. Both because it’s the smart way to play it, and because it’s only way to play it. They can’t just bop him on the head and magically get results; this isn’t a cartoon.

8) As I like to say, 95% of politics takes place behind the scenes. Biden and Schumer aren’t doing “nothing” just because they’re not publicly setting their hair on fire. Their job isn’t to dance for your entertainment. It’s to get results for you behind the scenes.

9) It’s notable that Manchin and Murkowski seem to be in lockstep on voting rights legislation. Makes sense. They’re close. And they give each other “bipartisan” cover no matter how this plays out.

10) Maybe Biden will offer Murkowski some things this week, to put the heat on Manchin. But it’s not as if Murkowski is going to heroically turn against Manchin, like in some movie. If anything, Murkoski could convince Manchin to come with her on whatever Biden offers.

11) Contrary to the fiction that gets tossed around on Twitter, Manchin actually voted with the Democrats far far far far far more often than Murkowski (look it up). So this sudden notion of Mirkowsko being better than Manchin, or Murkowski becoming a Democrat, is laughable.

12) Then there’s Sinema, who’s doing a terrible John McCain “maverick” imitation. She’s looking for an opportunity to jump in and cast a heroic vote and (in her mind) be the hero. The rest of us will just wonder why she acted like a buffoon before finally voting correctly.

13) In any case, our job is to keep as much pressure on Manchin, Murkowski, and Sinema as possible. But you MUST approach it with the mindset that you’re going to successfully pressure them into caving. If you just rant about how they’ll vote wrong no matter what, you’ve lost.

14) Finally, don’t forget that politicians are only ever trying to set the stage when they speak publicly. You all think Manchin is dishonest, so why on earth would you believe him when he says he intends to vote a certain way? Ignore his words. Fight like you’re going to win.

15) And don’t forget: Biden is the most effective Senate wrangler of the past 50 years. Schumer takes his cues from Pelosi, who’s great at this. They’re much better at this than Manchin or Sinema. Why would you presume Biden is going to lose this battle to those two lightweights?

Attorneys for former President Donald Trump – who is also a defendant in the suit – have filed a motion to dismiss, claiming he has "absolute immunity" because he was president at the time.
