Thanks, Beto!

I don't know if we will win Texas but the fact that we are even talking about it as a real possibility is largely due to the massive GOTV efforts of Beto O'Rourke. That's not hyperbole. He has worked his ass off.

When Beto dropped out of the race, he didn't whine about the media or unfair debate practices or DNC favorites or whatever, he went back to Texas and got to work. When he wasn't invited to speak at the convention and his supporters were pissed off, Beto didn't stoke that anger for personal gain, he defused it and encouraged us to get to work for Joe and Kamala and M.J.

The media tried to paint Beto as just a show pony but he is a work horse. So thank you, Beto. Thank you for your massive fundraising efforts, thank you for helping to register millions of new voters, thank you for organizing thousands of volunteers, thank you for the 5 million phone calls. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Viola Liuzzo's family wants Hoover's name off the FBI building.

https://www.michiganadvance.com/2020/07/16/liuzzo-family-pushes-to-strike-hoover-name-from-fbi-building/?fbclid=IwAR0clD4Sgrgjpk2WZbtUnPCY1LLt1OoVX0_exeuZCVPiur_VlbU5Os1S3Gg

For those not familiar with the story: Viola Liuzzo was murdered by the Klan on the last night of the Selma to Montgomery march. When word got out that there was an FBI informant in the car, Hoover put out false rumors that Viola was a drug addict who only came to Selma to have sex with black men.


The TikTok Kids Did Not Effect The Crowd Size at The Rally.

They are awesome and I applaud them but the low turnout was entirely on Trump. There were tickets available for days, the Magats just didn't want them.

Actually, what they really did was much better. They played on his Narcissism and had him convinced that there was massive enthusiasm for him. They got the campaign to spend millions on an overflow area that they were never going to need. They knew he would brag all week about how huge his rally would be and he didn't disappoint. They made a fool out of him.

It concerns me that the Media, and even many resisters, are saying today that the TikTok kids are the reason the rally turnout was down. That ignores his low poll numbers, his low approval ratings and the general mess he has made of everything. People, even Magats, didn't feel like celebrating that shit. It wasn't a lack of tickets that kept the crowds away.

Man shot during demonstration over conquistador statue in New Mexico

Source: NBC

A man was shot Monday evening at a demonstration where protesters planned to topple a conquistador's statue in Albuquerque, New Mexico, authorities said.

It wasn't immediately clear who had been shot. Albuquerque police said in a statement that one person had been taken to a hospital in critical condition but that there were no other injuries.

Reports on Twitter that there was a right-wing armed militia group there "protecting" the statues and one of them shot a protester.

Biden's Accuser Must Have Watched A Lot Of "Mad Men."

Her story is straight out of Season 2, right down to the hallway. What she said happened, where she said it happened-it's all there in the script. The episode was "The Benefactors."

Good free book

I hope it's okay to post this here. Carrot Quinn's book, "Thru-hiking Will Break Your Heart" is free today and it's a good read. It's like a wilder version of "Wild." I don't have any connection with the book, just thought I'd share a good, free read.

P.S. Carrot is a great progressive. She was actively involved with "No More Deaths," the organization that got in trouble for leaving water for immigrants.
