Stupid American people!

We aren't stupid. We are overworked. Underpaid. Under a relentless stream of propaganda. Whole communities that are damn near starved of any meaningful news. Systemic government oppression that leaves our most vulnerable out of the loop or in a position where they have to work even harder just to stay involved. Fear of where our next mortgage/rent payment or meal is going to come from.

Uncertainty from every direction.

We are getting way too close to survival of the fittest. Way too close. Barely sustaining is hardly what we should consider survival to be in this country.

We spend most of our time trying to gather what we need for ourselves and our families. Sometimes that is a job that can't be completed. Our days are often booked out way in advance. Not planning for a night out with the friends. Not a day on the river. But planning to manage one or three jobs, take care of our children or elderly parents, and sleep when time allows.

Why am I saying this? Have a bit of patience folks. It's not currently easy for the American people to tune in. That is often a result of the system itself. Not lazy or stupid Americans. The news does get out. Stories do spread. Facts do make their way to the ground.

When it comes to the Trump shit show people are getting the point. Don't concern yourself with Trump supporters. Work on everyone else. If you have time, post on message boards, talk to neighbors and friends, call your congress people, send a couple of bucks to a solid outfit helping our cause.... Help to get the word out.

We will win this. Trump will be impeached or voted out. Politicians need their base on board. They need their districts on board. These things take time. Support has to build.

It's lining up. We are overall playing our cards right.

Everyone from rank and file up to Pelosi.

This is about messaging. It's a war of messaging. Information has been spilling out and Mueller's Report is flat out damning to Trump. Get this. People didn't read the Mueller Report. The American people simply didn't read it. The American people could not decipher all of the deception and propaganda immediately after the reports release. It is now going to be shown that the report is clear that Trump obstructed justice. The messaging from Republicans is going to water that down but it's still going to get out there.

Today is a big day. I think it is big enough of a day for Democrats to call on people to testify that they know won't show. That's when you will know that the goal is impeachment and that impeachment is right around the corner. They will attempt to subpoena them and force them to show. They will fight that as well.

I think we are closer to impeachment than I thought we were.

Sanders makes 'last-minute' appearance at union rally with Warren

Warren confirmed her attendance well before the rally at Reagan National Airport, as she continues to vie for the progressive wing of the party. In press materials sent out Monday morning, she was the headliner and no other candidates were listed as attending.

“Bernie was very last-minute,” said Sara Nelson, the president of the Association of Flight Attendants, who had the crowd roaring in her own speech Tuesday night. “There was no plan for Bernie to be here. I can show you the lineup I had yesterday, and he wasn’t on it.”

The Sanders campaign has been roiled over the past week as internal union disputes with their own staffers over wages spilled into the open. The public sniping threatens Sanders’ labor-centric candidacy.

While the Sanders campaign and its workers announced a resolution earlier on Tuesday, the fallout clearly bothered the presidential aspirant. He told the Des Moines Register on Friday that going to the media “is really not what labor negotiations are about, and it’s improper.” Sanders did not mention the strife in his short speech on Tuesday evening, but some organizers suggested that his appearance was connected to the conflict and his not wanting to cede the stage to Warren.


Warren has a shadow. Sounds about right.

A part of Bidens Justice Reform is to push the SAFE Justice Act through. HR 4261

Biden wants to take additional steps but this is a huge part of it. It's main sponsor is Bobby Scott (D-VA).

Bullet points and additional information:

Language of HR 4261

This has warmed me up even more to Biden. I hope people look at what he is outlining. It's major and can be done.

Morgan Stanley sees 'credible bear case' for a US recession

Morgan Stanley economists see a 20% chance of a recession in the year ahead, but that could move up quickly depending on circumstances.

Trade tensions that could lead to layoffs and a pullback from consumers are at the center of the recession case laid out by Ellen Zentner, Morgan Stanley’s chief U.S. economist.

A Fed rate cut may not be enough to stave off a slowdown that would start as a demand shock, according to the forecast.


Elizabeth Warren sees “serious warning signs” of an economic crash


The bells are ringing.

Sanders cutting hours in an attempt to get to $15/hour.


Brianne Pfannenstiel

Bernie Sanders says his campaign will limit the hours staffers work so they are paid the equivalent of $15 an hour. “I’m very proud to be the first presidential candidate to recognize a union and negotiate a union contract,” he told me.

Glad that they have the union to negotiate and fight for back pay.
