Where there is widespread progress and enlightenment for the people under a democratic system, there is a backlash of Fascism. Where are we now? Do we really have to go through the whole cycle again?

A fascinating paradox in public opinion: “The more ambivalent a person is about a political issue, the more likely they are to support violence and other extreme actions relating to that topic.”

For folks upset about the #Trump case being thrown out over the unqualified prosecutor, remember that it was Biden’s administration that screwed that up by not having any of their properly appointed and qualified officials lead the case.

We really need to be holding folks like #Biden accountable for their screwups, and it’s just one more reason Democrats should dump him as their nominee.

But no, so many that are most disappointed in the guy’s performance are going to vote to keep him in power.

DONALD TRUMP IS UNFIT TO LEAD
BY THE NYT EDITORIAL BOARD

The editorial board is a group of opinion journalists whose views are informed by expertise, research, debate & certain longstanding values.
It is separate from the newsroom."

Mr. Trump has shown a character unworthy of the responsibilities of the presidency. He has demonstrated an utter lack of respect for the Constitution, the rule of law & the American people.

MAGA's Lauren Boebert may lose her her driver's license due to being a habitual offender.

"I was messing with my gears and I know I ended up going, like, way too fast,” MAGA Boebert explained to an officer in a Colorado State Patrol video.

Boebert refused to pay the $174 speeding ticket for going 94 mph in a 65 mph zone until she was summoned to court.

ISN'T THAT IRONIC....

Donald Trump was shot at by Registered Republican (according to PA state voter files) Thomas Matthew Crooks, who was using a Republican protected AK ASSAULT RIFLE owned by his father.

I've heard reports it wasn't a bullet, but rather a piece of shattered teleprompter that struck Trump's ear..

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.

Footage of the Donald Trump Assassination Attempt

The gunman was identified by the FBI as Thomas Matthew Crooks.

Crooks, perched atop a nearby roof, was shot and killed by law enforcement.

#AureFreePress #News #press #headline #GOP #Politics #uspolitics #uspol #Trump #BreakingNews #Breaking


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.

#Trump #Politics #USPolitics


The epitome of narcissism. Facing possible assassination, Trump slows the Secret Service detail from evacuating him from the scene, repeating three times: "Let me get my shoes."

I think he cared more about being photographed barefoot than being out of the line of fire.

Democrats need to figure out a strategy for containing the damage of the Supreme Court if they get a second presidential term. Court-packing is often mentioned, but @damemagazine says it may not be the answer. Instead, argues history professor Claire Bond Potter, they should look at eliminating the “zombie laws” right-wing activists use to bring their cases.

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.

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.

It's not just American presidential candidates that are quite old.

Nearly 20% of members of #Congress are 70 or older, compared with only 6% who are under 40.

Some of the reasons behind this are unavoidable and pretty basic (experience and season of your life makes a difference).

Memo to clueless white male celebrities who imagine they are, by virtue of their status as prominent, wealthy, white males, leading the progressive movement:

You are not.

People of color and women are the base of the #Democratic party and have been for some time.

The next seventeen weeks would be a really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really good time for you to listen substantially more than you speak.
