Today's round of political turmoil has a purpose. It is to further wake up those who say they don't

"follow" politics. Millions of Americans are not like us here, on DU. We follow every crumb and ant to the bitter end. Most Americans, not so much.

So today was attention getting day. Nancy, Jerry, Maxine, and Adam need as many Americans as possible to be paying attention.

Today Americans saw some sunlight. Cleansing sunlight.

Nah....he's not pre-dementia - he is an angry self absorbed little (fill in the blank). He knows

exactly what he is saying.....

People will read this in history books and scratch their heads...it will reflect badly on the people who put him in office and then looked the other way to give him free reign to blabber, Tweet, lie and cheat.

I bow down to the strategic genius of our dear Leader Pelosi.

This will not turn out well for the Trumproid.


Open for discussion....

This is too long. I could not find a link.
Worthy of your time to read:

‘Reasonable people can disagree about when a zygote becomes a "human life" - that's a philosophical question. However, regardless of whether or not one believes a fetus is ethically equivalent to an adult, it doesn't obligate a mother to sacrifice her body autonomy for another, innocent or not.

Body autonomy is a critical component of the right to privacy protected by the Constitution, as decided in Griswold v. Connecticut (1965), McFall v. Shimp (1978), and of course Roe v. Wade (1973). Consider a scenario where you are a perfect bone marrow match for a child with severe aplastic anemia; no other person on earth is a close enough match to save the child's life, and the child will certainly die without a bone marrow transplant from you. If you decided that you did not want to donate your marrow to save the child, for whatever reason, the state cannot demand the use of any part of your body for something to which you do not consent. It doesn't matter if the procedure required to complete the donation is trivial, or if the rationale for refusing is flimsy and arbitrary, or if the procedure is the only hope the child has to survive, or if the child is a genius or a saint or anything else - the decision to donate must be voluntary to be constitutional. This right is even extended to a person's body after they die; if they did not voluntarily commit to donate their organs while alive, their organs cannot be harvested after death, regardless of how useless those organs are to the deceased or many lives they would save. That's the law.

Use of a woman's uterus to save a life is no different from use of her bone marrow to save a life - it must be offered voluntarily. By all means, profess your belief that providing one's uterus to save the child is morally just, and refusing is morally wrong. That is a defensible philosophical position, regardless of who agrees and who disagrees. But legally, it must be the woman's choice to carry out the pregnancy. She may choose to carry the baby to term. She may choose not to. Either decision could be made for all the right reasons, all the wrong reasons, or anything in between. But it must be her choice, and protecting the right of body autonomy means the law is on her side. Supporting that precedent is what being pro-choice means.’”

Anyone from the film industry reading DU? Hollywood are you listening?

Please add Ohio to your list of states you will no longer use for films.

Boycott Ohio - send Ohio a message that the reason is the new abortion law.

I am worried that Ohio will be given a pass over. Ohio needs to be included.

Let's add Ohio to the list of states adopting radical anti-choice legislation.

In fact, let's communicate with the Visitors centers of the major cities in these state to tell them we aren't stepping into their state nor spending any money on attractions.

Boycott Cedar Point in Ohio
Boycott Cleveland during the All Star game.

Don't spend a dollar in LA, or GA either.

Ninga votes AYE! Hold Barr in contempt!

We are in the 'throes of being witness to how people grab power to get power.

They just walk up to the door and grab it. Snatch it. And own it. They cheat. They lie. They grab.

While it may unravel...we have no guarantees...but it is guaranteed that this power grab will take decades to unravel.

On second thought...Maybe the word "snitty" fractured the Mueller armor. Maybe

that one little word will be the giant that starts the avalanche.....

Rachel pointed out the meaning to Chairman Nadler's methodologically extending deadlines.

She noted his careful and measured approach is for one reason and one reason only.

The courts.

Ninga says:
Nadler is papering the file so to speak. He is giving witnesses, the IRS and the WH every possible chance to reply, show up, turn over docs.

So that when he goes to court, the judge can say pony up, the Chairman gave you the benefit of doubt.

I cannot imagine the heartfelt stress the Democrats are living with....
