The House minority is keeping the majority in line

Democrats make no promises about bailing out Mike Johnson again

========
When Republicans see Leader Jeffries they see everything that makes them angry about the Democratic party. They hate seeing someone who doesn't look like them offering the policies they prefer.

the republicon convention is going to be a total DISASTER

The WNs will be split on whether to avoid the topic of abortion and whether to use it as a stage to double down on reproductive freedom.

Instead of aspirational uplifting prime time speeches we'll get angry hostile calls for rolling back rights, bullying the weak and vengeance.

They will encourage participation in an election they insist is rigged.

Defendant trermp is going to find a way to make it a money-making scheme for himself.

It's going to be such a mess. I can't wait.

What Michael Fanone just said on Nicole

Pretty please read to the end of the quote.

"I think that everyone has a responsibility, at least those of us who love this country and love Democracy to do everything that they can in their power to ensure the future of our Democracy and right now I think the biggest threat is donald trump in a second trump presidency. That being said, I thought maybe naïvely that being a former trump supporter, a police officer, a white guy that maybe I could communicate with some other trump supporters as to why, you know, how I was bamboozled so to speak, lied to by the former president, but unfortunately their, I guess you’d say messaging apparatus is strong enough to withstand even my country ass."

I think it's important, one because he identifies himself as a former trump supporter which I've never heard him do before in TV interviews. He also verbalizes the relevance of race.

What pollster Cornell Belcher just said on Nicole's show

"I'm a pollster and we should stop talking about polls on televisions so much... we're centering too much of our conversation on polls and polls aren't crystal balls. They're not predictors of the future. I think we want polls to predict the future, but they're not. From a campaign standpoint what we use polls for is to instruct us on how to build a campaign."

I hope this is helpful.

It's not MIGRANTS that I find threatening

As the rapist trermp continues his Scare the Whites Tour, ginning up his crowds with lies and misrepresentations about migrants crossing the border, I think about the bigger threats to America, and for the larger part, their skin ain't brown.

On any day of the week there's news somewhere of some rapist-loving maniacs who promise danger or cause some mayhem because those maniacs have had their psychotic tendencies awakened by years of right-wing media telling them to hate the libs who threaten what they think is their God-given superiority. So they make threatening phone calls to judges and public officials. They crash through gates at FBI field offices. They riot at the capitol, brutalizing cops in the process. They fire shots at homes of people they don't like. We've all seen the danger.

What's more scary is that the conman under multiple indictments encourages all of the above behavior against people he perceives as threats. He calls those criminal rioters who bear-sprayed cops in his defense good people whom he will pardon if reelected.

What's even more scary are the less aligned voters with amnesia whose lives are in no way negatively impacted by "illegal immigration" yet still buy into the fear-mongering enough so that they may even vote for the rapist who promises to pardon violent criminals whom the rapist refers to as hostages.

Yes, I feel more threatened by the white suburban swing voter who leaves open the opportunity to vote for a known rapist and conman because they've been emotionally manipulated by him with distractions in the form of false stories of criminal migrant hordes.

Here's a reply I made on FB re bloodbath statements

My take is that any blood that's going to be spilled is going to be that of those poor pitiable creatures that have been ginned up by Limbaugh and Fox to believe that they have some birthright privilege to the American consensus and when they don't get their way turn to violence, which they think their privilege allows, but are in for a rude awakening as was realized by the January 6 convicts.

Republican Voters Against Trump

https://rvat.org/about-us/

Here's a group that will help normalize things a bit. It's been a long time coming because we all know how magas can turn violent against those who don't carry the water for the Keystone Con.

If this group gets decent attention it will help further erode support for the Florida rapist, not only among republicans, but also among conservative-leaning independents who see it's ok to speak out.

My advice to magas who feel bad about the economy

Maybe you should just work harder. You need to join the culture of work instead of waiting for a handout from the government. You're a republican so remember, whatever you think Joe Biden should be doing, it's not government's job. You're responsible for your own economic condition. So pick yourself up by your bootstraps and stop complaining. This is America!
