Yes, it's clear that the anti-Biden backlash is all about the donors. Here's the CNN headline:

" `Everything is frozen`: Donors hold back dollars amid fallout over Biden’s candidacy "

Our democracy is now a spending contest. How long until the donors become oligarchs that have to curry favor with a dictator to keep their wealth?

So is the US always going to be one election away from fascism now? “Vote for us or it’s fascism” every four years feels less like democracy and more like a hostage situation.

How do you reform a system where things have gotten this bad?

The IRS responded to a tax news article that featured #DemocratsAbroad to clarify:

Non-US pensions and savings that stay within the limits are NOT subject to Foreign Trust reporting!

Formal revision of regs to follow.

This is a HUGE win for the #expat community!

What the fuck is wrong with the #Democrats, forcing #Biden to backout from the presidential race will effectively end that bit of freedom and #democracy left in the #US.
#Trump will run this country into the ground and while doing so weaken every little piece that stands for #freedom and democracy.


BBC is reporting that #Democrats are huddling to decide whether to ask #Biden to step aside as presumptive nominee.

The thing is, that’s not really up to Biden. The party sets its own rules, and it can nominate whomever it wants. They don’t need Biden’s permission.

The thing I find funniest, though, is that it’s like politely asking #Trump to leave the presidency after he lost the election.

No, that’s not how this works. We don’t ask; we tell. The Democratic Party will tell Biden if he’s the nominee, just as the EC process told Trump that he’s no longer going to be president.

It does come across as people hoping they don’t have to make tough decisions or take action, though. Or be held accountable for the result.

Much easier just to let the individual choose for himself.

#USPolitics


What's key to remember (IMO) is that changing horses at this point pretty much GUARANTEES #Democrats lose the election
(check historical precedents)

So #CorporateMedia helping the #GQP bully the only non- #Fascist out of the race is a blatant tactic that #DNC needs to be calling out 24/7

Axios is right-leaning, but their journalists are warning of the dangers from #TFG's annihilistic, antidemocratic, & cruel platform:

"You have to love how Axios’s plain language summary of Trump’s platform is “He’ll set up concentration camps and jail his political enemies” - literally fascism and tyranny - but somehow this all gets sidelined in our day-to-day discourse."
-W Stancil

'Take some drastic action': Liberals urge Biden to use new presidential powers

...Snell also suggested that Biden "create four new seats on the Supreme Court, by executive order. He can add a binding ethics code as well. And a special counsel to investigate corruption on SCOTUS while he's at it."

'Take some drastic action': Liberals urge Biden to use new presidential powers

"Biden's first act with his presidential immunity: March the FBI into Mar-a-Lago, Bedminster, and Trump Tower right now, finding every single last government document, every computer, every second of security camera footage, everything -- in the name of national security," Trump University prosecutorTristan Snell suggested.

Dear #CNN et al:

1) We could've told you that.

2) "Fair" is an adjective. "Fare" is the verb you want here. #grammar

3) #Biden won the nomination. Unless he releases delegates, he will be the nominee.

4) He hasn't done that.

5) That's his call.

6) Rank/file #Democrats support him & are working like hell to re-elect him. They just gave him $33 million in 2 days.

7) 14 million folks voted for him. We don't throw away votes. That's the other guys.

#USPolitics #politics #democracy #Vote


The #FarRight loves Putin, money, and power without control.

They are on the rise around the world.

#Democrats and #Expats have a job to do. We have a moral obligation to stop them in the #US.

That's our reality. We may not like it. Our grandparents didn't. They preserved #Democracy anyway.

Now it's our turn.

'No one knows anything': Internet befuddled by post-debate poll showing Biden bump

A new poll showing the...debate appears to have helped — or at least, not harmed...Biden's chances...

The non-partisan group Political Polls shared a new general election poll Friday afternoon with a curious finding: Biden led Trump 45 percent to 44 percent post-debate. The previous poll "was a tie," the group noted on social media.

Judge Cannon Disregards Advice from Other Federal Judges NOT to Preside Over Trump's Florida Case

“...it's becoming painfully clear that the outcome of the motions, doesn't really matter, the delay is the point.

...at some point it's got to end, and the only way to bring it to an end is for Jack Smith to file and fully litigate a motion to recuse, a motion to remove judge Cannon…”
