GOP racist? Pffft. Not a chance...

Could Texas be any more intentional?

Houston voters elect 19 Black women to judgeships.

GOP then introduces bill to replace judicial elections w/governor-appointed judges.

Kicker: Bill would end elections only in counties w/500,000+ people, targeting urban areas like Houston.

About that Mormon family killed in Mexico. I knew my gut was right

EDIT: this is in NO way an attempt to excuse their heinous murder. Rather, an explanation of why they were in that area


Mexican slaughter victims were from NXIVM recruiting ground
https://m.chron.com/news/article/Victims-of-Mexican-slaughter-were-from-NXIVM-14814764.php

The nine U.S. citizens slaughtered in an ambush Monday were from a Mormon community in northern Mexico where NXIVM recruited teenagers for a "girls school" to live in the Capital Region under the care of a high-ranking "slave" for Keith Raniere.

The Mormon community’s ties to the disgraced NXIVM leader's cult-like organization were revealed in May during the testimony of NXIVM defector Mark Vicente, a filmmaker based in Los Angeles who once lived in Knox Woods, the same Halfmoon townhouse complex as Raniere.

The nine women and children killed -- including eight-month-old twins -- were traveling in a mountainous area where the notorious Sinaloa drug cartel has been waging a turf war. The victims were related to the extended LeBaron family community in the state of Chihuahua.

...

Raniere secretly operated a"master/slave" group known as DOS or “Dominus Obsequious Sororium," which translates from Latin as "Lord/Master of the Obedient Female Companions." Under the orders of Raniere, the "Grand Master," women in DOS were starved on 500-calorie-a-day diets and forced to provide "collateral" in the form of sexually explicit photos or false information about themselves and their family to ensure their loyalty. They also were required to have Raniere's initials branded onto their pelvic areas by a person using a cauterizing pen.

Delco Dems appear on way to sweep of 3 County Council seats. Would give them 5-0 grip on county government. #delcovote

Why Ukraine??

It’s not about the gas/oil. It’s deeper in the Russian (Putin’s) psyche. Putin would be another Stalin if he could be & Ukraine has long been a key piece of Russia/the Soviet Union. Losing it to the west would cut deep into Russian nationalism. And Putin blames much on Hillary


Why does Putin want to control Ukraine? Ask Stalin.
Russia’s attitude has roots in the revolution — and in the famine that killed 13 percent of Ukrainians.

Why Ukraine Is Such A Big Deal For Russia
Geopolitics is one way to explain why Russia wants to keep its influence in Ukraine, but there are other important reasons, too: history, faith, economics and culture.

This idea...this sentiment...has apparently become ingrained in #TraitorTrump @realDonaldTrump due to his close ties with Putin and is why #RudyColludy @RudyGiuliani has been running a shadow State Dept for a couple of years to combat opposition to tRump re-election in 2020
