"Save America. Stop socialism."

Really?! More like stop corrupt authoritarians, christofascists, and *phobes.

When Disgraced Former President and Convicted #felon Donald J. #trump announced he was going to "drain the swamp" I knew we were in for it.

These are the #people and #corporations who are determined to end #democracy.

Politics is football



Quick reminder: #Project2025 is a roadmap to #Gilead.

Y'all better #vote. No matter who the #Democratic candidate is.

Unless you want to have to greet each other with "Blessed Day" at gunpoint.

Someone is trolling on the Internet and legitimate newspapers take it as a fact... the times we live in. Must be true, because so many people are saying it online. Crazy shit.

A former president, and current president candidate was almost assassinated last night, and so far I've seen only one (1) post about it Mastodon.

Usually this is my goto place for news, but this seems strange. 🤔

EDIT: I'm stupid. I recently added a filter where I mute politics 😅

Every newspaper in the world now: ”Trump getting the points”, ”The shooting is a good thing for Trump” etc., including the Finnish media today: https://www.hs.fi/maailma/art-2000010563218.html

It’s amazing to me that getting shot is somehow a positive thing. Can’t fathom it.

Elon #Musk donates to Donald #Trump, tapping vast fortune to swing US presidential race


Source: https://www.scmp.com/news/world/united-states-canada/article/3270328/elon-musk-donates-donald-trump-tapping-vast-fortune-swing-us-presidential-race

The move highlights the growing influence of a #technology mogul who tops the Bloomberg Billionaires Index with a net worth of US$263.6 billion and his shift from a self-described political independent – who said he preferred to stay out of politics – into a figure who regularly uses his X social-media platform to espouse right-leaning views and attack Democrats.

UN activities in #Geneva hampered by financial constraints


Source: https://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/international-geneva/united-nations-palais-des-nations-geneva-budget-crisis/79237405

This financial crunch is a result of the failure of some UN member states to pay their assessed contributions, the amount each country is expected to pay to cover the UN’s work and pay its staff. It is forcing the #UNOG to save over $15 million (CHF13.5 million) from its #budget while keeping essential functions. Geneva is not alone in this predicament: other UN offices such as New York, #Vienna and #Nairobi also face #budgetary constraints.

From the perspective of political #economy, the current moment in #capitalism looks like a huge #heist by a few on the rest of #society and neoclassical economics with its trivializing #market narrative serves them as a cover story.

They dropped 9 x 2000 pound bombs at the tents of displaced Palestinians.

They dropped 9 x 2000 pound bombs at the tents of displaced Palestinians.

They dropped 9 x 2000 pound bombs at the tents of displaced Palestinians.


All because they wanted to get 1 senior Hamas guy.

Over 100 Palestinians, most of them women and children were murdered, over 500 injured, countless numbers lost limbs and hearing.

But all the media is covering is that the orange Hitler got shot at.

The idiots on planet Earth, busy with their dramas, hate, divisions, borders, competition. While they have global problems and common needs.

Their most popular news and activities should be about the wonderful rock they are lucky to be on. The creatures, the places, themselves. There are entire universes inside all of us. Inside even a single cell. There are endless stars and planets out there.

Intelligent species you say!?

Show must go on! The Caesar Roman general was nearly assassinated so now we can gossip, talk, debate, and be busy with this story for months or years. Some empire attacked another killing hundreds of thousands. Have you heard about the wife of the emperor cheating on him?

2024 is the same as 2024 BC. Same shit. Wars, conflicts, gossip, decimation of other creatures and destruction of the environment.

Same idiots, only that now we have internet, electricity and airplanes.

If you wonder whether we have political prosecutions & imprisonment(s) in Britain, you'll want to read this account of the recent Just Stop Oil 'conspiracy' trial.

If the Labour Party wants to return us to the Rule of Law, then they need to but a very swift stop to actions like this!

If pressed, I would guess that the principle in question here is that #fascists get along great as long as they are on opposite sides of the globe

Absolute truth: Trump spoke at the Heritage Foundation as they kicked off Project 2025, and there’s video

Here, this is important; if anyone believes Trump’s lies about not knowing anything about Heritage Foundation / Project 2025 / Mandate for Leadership, here he is speaking to the Heritage Foundation in 2022 as they’re kicking off the project to build the “detailed plans for exactly what our movement will do.”

This is as firm a proof that he’s knowingly lying as could ever be had. It’s direct proof that he was lying, from his own mouth, in his own words, on audio and video. Use it.

Did you know 501(c)(3) tax exempt organizations are not allowed to engage in political activities, but Heritage Foundation (organization behind Trump's Project 2025) does and knows they shouldn't?

Dear Reporters: when you get to ask a question, it shouldn’t have five sentences of pre-context and a second follow up question at the end.

One question and stfu.

"Behind the expansive playbook [ #Project2025 ] is its advisory board, made up of dozens of think tanks and advocacy groups, including three that are designated #hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center...

And despite Trump’s recent attempts to distance himself from the plan, these group’s fingerprints were all over his last administration and will likely be all over his next one."

Democrats can be honest, I argue, or they can spend the next four months looking voters in the face and falsely claiming Joe Biden is fit to serve until January 2029. https://www.salon.com/2024/07/10/dishonest-biden-defenders-sound-like-maga-surrogates-as-they-privately-admit-he-cant-win/ #news #politics


I woke at 10, turned on MSNBC. 40min. later, they're STILL talking only, only, only about everyone who thinks Biden should step aside. Oh look!--now they're interviewing ANOTHER guy who says he should. Ignore the 200 or so who say he shouldn't or haven't said. Gotta focus on the few who want him to! Nothing about his decent NATO speech. Nothing about Project 2025. Nothing about Trump endorsing Dean Phillips. Nothing about the GOP blocking that abortion bill. Nope. Let's interview someone else who wants Biden to drop out. Breathless reporting!--Nancy Pelosi DODGED the chance to endorse Biden...by saying she would support anything Biden decides to do. OMG! Surely that means...?? Didn't one of the defecting Dems also endorse Dean Phillips...who Trump just endorsed? Oh! Better not report that...let's find another naysayer so we can keep ignoring asking ACTUAL VOTERS who they're voting for...Biden! Etc. etc. etc.... 🤮 #politics

The media is going out of their way to normalize Trump and demonize Biden. One thing I think we can do is remind people of this when they seem to follow the media down the “Biden is horrific” rabbit hole. Remind them of the big picture- we only have 2 options. Option one is for a banana republic with presidential power that is nearly unlimited, and option two is someone who is AGAINST that. That is what matters right now, not rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. #politics #uspolitics

* It abolishes the Dept. Of Education.

What is the appeal of #populism in #uspol ? #OrenCass has an article in the #NYTimes , and a thread on Twitter:

"My long-but-worthwhile-read @nytimes is about the American political class's self-righteous detachment from the economic and social conditions of its nation. This is the root cause of present instability and poses the most serious long-term threat to the Republic. 🧵"
