Does anyone believe that Solomon Pena in New Mexico thought he really won?

I think like any power hungry fascist, he thought he would bully some low level Dems to resign because of the stress on themselves and the threat to their families and he would step in as the "winner." He saw what happened in Georgia with the mobs coming to the election workers' homes. He's figured out that if enough good people are scared they want to protect their families. I think he wanted to get started in politics and if he couldn't win one way, he would bully his way in.

I watched that DA on MSNBC earlier and I'm so glad he sees this for the serious threat it is.

Watching Freedom On My Mind on TCM now. Powerful.

Why aren't shows like this on PBS today? Isn't public Tv supposed to be educational?

"Leaked" abortion decision and pushing the red wave.

I believe there was some thought that whoever "leaked" the Supreme Court vote on abortion. that they thought that if they leaked it early enough, the outrage on our part would dissipate long before the midterm election (get the bad news over with and out of the way) and the onslaught of Republican polls showing a "red wave" along with pushing the narrative that the anger over the abortion decision was over with and not going to be a serious factor in the election. They pushed that narrative to suppress discouraged Dem and independent voters.

They don't get it that every time there is another story of a woman denied medication because of her sex, even if it isn't for abortion, is afraid of being arrested for going to the ER because of vaginal bleeding, women and girls who are shamed for not being ready to bear or raise a child, we are reminded of the cruelty a minority of Americans are capable of.
