Schumer on MSNBC!

Looks like he has learned from Reid’s and Obama’s mistakes regarding Republicans.

CNN "The Divided States of America"

Don’t have high hopes for this show....I think it will be ‘both sides’ are to blame take....

Prominent never trumpers and former republicans

Even the ones we like (Nicole Wallace, Ann Navarro, Steve Schmidt, etc...) They created Trump and Marjorie green, and the domestic terrorists who invaded the Capitol...they let this stuff and people like them fester for decades...this crap has been around for years and the people I named put up with these crazy racist people because they needed them in elections....now the crazies have replaced them

Federal Judges Are Retiring Now That Joe Biden Will Pick Their Replacements

This could be good or bad news. Good news if Biden/Schumer and the rest of the Senate Democrats do what Trump/McConnell and he Senate Republicans did and fast track these appointments...bad news if they let the Republicans obstruct and then the Republicans take over the senate in 2023

Filibuster questions

I know that Reid got rid of the filibuster for judicial appointments because the Republicans were being big time obstructionists, and then McConnell did the same for the SCOTUS under the guise of ‘they did it first’.......but if I remember right, the Republicans would have been able to get rid of Obama care with a simple majority, and were able to end debate with a simple majority....and if it wasn’t for 3 Republicans the vote would have passed 50/50 with Pence as the tie breaker....my questions are:

1. How was that possible with the filibuster rule
2. Why can’t Democrats do the same for legislation (for example DC statehood)

What's up with conservatives crying about losing Twitter followers

1. For one, I thought they were leaving twitter and going to Parler

2. Didn’t they tell there followers to leave twitter and meet them at Parler...maybe that’s the reason

Chaplain's Facebook post denigrating transgender troops under investigation by Army

I like this guy’s response

https://twitter.com/jeremyseattle/status/1354103220486852608?s=20

To this from the chaplain
How is rejecting reality (biology) not evidence that a person is mentally unfit (ill), and thus making that person unqualified to serve,” Andrew Calvert posted on the Army Times Facebook page Monday. “There is little difference in this than over those who believe and argue for a ‘flat earth,’ despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

'Both sides' aren't the same

I find it inevitable that the MSM will start comparing Marjorie Taylor Green and Lauren Boebert to the Democratic squad members. As if the ladies are the same just on opposite sides of the political spectrum. Some commentator will ask ‘what’s the difference between them and the squad members’ when one of the right wing ladies says or does something stupid.....the difference is, the squad members are about trying to get policy done even if it’s something that is very liberal, they speak their minds and don’t back down from the racist or misogynistic bullies trying to silence them....on the other hand, these right wing women have nothing to add regarding policy, their whole stchick is just to disrupt and own the liberals, they are the bullies.....But unfortunately this will be the case of ‘both sides’ or ‘the extremes on both sides’, etc that the media loves to paint or the ‘whataboutism’ Republicans like to push
