I am going to keep saying this. If the jamming is coming from Kalinigrad, why don't Poland and Lithuania take it over? Is that the jamming that is blocking missiles from Ukraine? Sure it's an escalation, but seems pretty simple to accomplish and it will greatly increase the security in the entire region. This is a Russian attack on all countries with aircraft. I'm an unqualified couch military strategist but some things seem so obvious. 😆

This is an interesting interview that rings true. But I would also add that because of billionaire control of every aspect of our lives, all people are being preyed upon and ripped off. We need a massive wealth transfer from the billionaires back to society. There is nothing illegal about this. The upper tax rate was 90% at one time. Let's bring that back. To be fair, we can say every dollar over one billion is taxed at 90%. 😀 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZXW764VZCs

This is such an astute statement and is 100% true. The rich don't care about America, they can relocate anywhere with their billions. Keep that in mind and fight so we can seize all their billions when we tax the f*ck out of them. Evil scumbags. ☠️ They don't care how many people die as long as they save on taxes.

Netanyahu’s split with Biden and the Democrats was years in the making
The Israeli leader’s longtime strategy of 🔸aligning with the GOP 🔸has helped shatter the American consensus behind Israel

Over the past 16 years, Netanyahu has departed sharply from his predecessors’ studious bipartisanship to embrace Republicans and disdain Democrats,
an attitude increasingly mirrored in each party’s approach to Israel.

The war in Gaza has vastly accelerated the shift,
as the once-broad support from Americans for Israel is shattering along partisan and generational lines.

The divide, playing out in angry protests and Democratic debates, marks a fundamental shift in U.S. politics.

“I don’t think there’s any other way to say it:
Netanyahu has been an absolute disaster for Israel’s support around the world,” said Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.).

“Here in the United States, Netanyahu made a reckless decision to integrate himself with the Republican Party,
taking very clear sides in U.S. politics, and it has come with serious consequences.”

Netanyahu is not solely responsible for the shift.

Israel has moved steadily to the right and the Democratic Party to the left in recent years,
while memories of the Holocaust, which long undergirded Americans’ sympathy for Israel,
have increasingly faded into the past.

But Netanyahu has led the change with a strategy of aligning himself with the American right, former aides say
— a decision that underlies his growing #rift with Joe Biden

Biden personifies the traditional Democratic affection for Israel.
The stakes for Israel could hardly be greater, as leaders on all sides agree that American military and diplomatic support is critical to the viability of the Jewish state as it faces powerful neighbors and a growing number of diplomatic challenges.

The United States is by far Israel’s biggest backer.
Murphy, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he has personally warned Netanyahu several times over the past 10 years about the risks of aligning himself so closely with Republicans.
The prime minister, he said, “has never wanted to listen.”

Not many are aware that Ballotpedia is a classic example of tools that can make change. Not always good change. Unknown to most, it was an initiative of a super-conservative organization with extremist roots. They wanted to weaponize politics to benefit the far right, but were constantly working with bad legislative information. So they created this site to gather the info. Beware. It can still skew hard right when you least expect it.

Mrs. Clinton accused four justices
— John G. Roberts Jr., Neil M. Gorsuch, Brett M. Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett
— of being “teed up to do the bidding” of conservative political and religious organizations and leaders
— though she believed many Democrats had not realized that during those justices’ confirmation hearings.

“It is really hard to believe that people are going to lie to you under oath, that even so-called conservative justices would upend precedents to arrive at ridiculous decisions on gun rights and campaign finance and abortion,” she said. “It’s really hard to accept that.”

Yet, she also had tough words for her former colleagues. In the Senate, she said, Democratic lawmakers did not push hard enough to block the confirmation of the justices who would go on to overturn federal abortion rights. When asked in confirmation hearings if they believed Roe was settled law, the nominees noted that Roe was precedent and largely avoided stating their opinion on the decision.

Those justices “all lied in their confirmation hearings,” she said, referring to Justices Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Coney Barrett, all of whom were appointed by Mr. Trump. “They just flat-out lied. And Democrats did nothing in the Senate.”

“More people have got to wake up, because this is the beginning,” she said. “They really want us to just shut up and go home. That’s their goal. And nobody should be in any way deluded. That’s what they will force upon us if they are given the chance.”

She added: “I know history will prove me right. And I don’t take any comfort in that because that’s not the kind of country or world I want for my grandchildren"

There are things Dems must do right now. Send Leonard Leo's subpoena to DOJ for enforcement. Immediately open an investigation with subpoenas into Alito and Thomas. If they don't comply, send the subpoenas to DOJ for enforcement. If Garland won't enforce them, replace him. Enough of this cowardly bullshit.

This is where we are at:

Ukraine signed a non-proliferation deal in 1994 and gave up their nuclear weapons… in exchange for the US one day telling them, when Russia fires at civilians in Kharkiv from across the border, Ukraine cannot fire back.

Absolutely insane.

I don't know what is going on, but I call and write letters. There are the thousands of kidnapped civilians who are in work camps, the Ukrainian children who are being "adopted" and indoctrinated, the civilians in occupied areas forced to fight their own compatriots. So many horrific abuses are being memory-holed. It should be considered genocide. IMO NATO should bomb the entire front line and all Russian military installations launching missiles. It's time to end the madness. 🤬 ☠️

"Dear Mr. Biden

We have been leveling cities, torturing, raping, killing, plundering and abducting children for so long, my army seriously needs a break, before all those western weapons arrive, and we lose the war.

Therefore, I think western countries should give us a breather, so I can replenish my troops and get back to full blown genocide in about 6-12 months.

From Russia with love ♥️

Jill Stein, Cornel West, Unite the Right, Tucker Carlson, Alex Jones, with Jackson Hinkle as the ringleader spreading vile disinformation for bucks. Really they are traitors working with Putin.

Why is there a problem regulating media at this scale? We can change the laws, GQP do it all the time when it suits them. Our current situation is because Reagan got rid of the fairness doctrine and facilitated Murdoch's US citizenship.

According to The Washington Post, election deniers had already cost all levels of government an estimated $519 million. So MAKE THEM PAY. So far, their extremism has cost them nothing. State legislatures should amend their election laws now to prevent the sabotage of democratic elections in November by making election denialists pay—literally, financially—for putting the rest of us through this turmoil.

"Clarence Thomas, who penned a solo concurrence demanding a radical move: The Supreme Court, he argued, should overrule every precedent that limits gerrymandering — including the landmark cases establishing 'one person, one vote' — because it has no constitutional power to redraw maps in the first place. And he places much of the blame for the court’s allegedly illegitimate intrusion into redistricting on a surprising culprit: Brown v. Board of Education," wrote Stern.”

If Dems don't know that ship has sailed, they should get out of government. We need strong leaders who will protect our rights from these Christofascist lunatics.
