it's funny that the crowd who cries about the "nanny state"

are the same ones who want a president to ignore the Constitution and "rule with an iron fist."

Isn't a lawless unaccountable dictator the ultimate nanny state?

trump wants Open Borders - the kind that let foreign dictators pick the American president. nt

another trump rally - time to slop the MAGA hogs again. nt

2015: Netanyahu goes to GOP Congress behind Obama's back for direct address

Remember this f*ckery?

Netanyahu addresses GOP US Congress without Obama's consent or permission.

Boehner and the GOP conspire with Netanyahu to orchestrate a very direct public insult and intentional slap in the face to the elected president of the United States, Barack Obama.

[link:How Netanyahu's speech to Congress has jeopardised US-Israel relations https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/feb/24/obama-binyamin-netanyahu-congress-speech-boehner-leaks?CMP=share_btn_tw|

I'm sorry Israel but I have not put this behind me. This was way over the line, even after Obama had engineered one of the largest US-Israeli aid packages ever. What was the point of this? Gratuitous insult? Power play? Just another opportunity for the GOP to sh*t on Obama?

I'm going to keep it in mind as context for current events.

Edit: trying to fix link

I am SO PROUD of our Dems, standing up to that turd Whitaker

Remember the GOP dolts trying to question Hillary? They could barely get words out.

Our Dems are smart, on point, tough - and they GET IT. They know exactly what's up and they are fighters.

We have a team of House Dem heroes exactly when we need them.

Conservatives are TERRIFIED that if Americans experience true progressive governance

that will be the end of their top-down, whites-only, Christo-fascist, sexist, wealth-hoarding, fake-fair-market, fake-small-government, fake-lower-taxes authoritarian rule. It will be eradicated like small pox.

They. are. terrified.

That's why they are shitting their pants over AOC. Did you see how she exposed them in the ethics hearing today? She can reach people. She says the government works for the people, not vice versa. The road to serfdom under the GOP is not inevitable.

They are apoplectic with fear. They are rolling on the ground foaming at the mouth.

Someone is about to kick over the trough they've been gorging themselves from. They see it.

This is the inflection point of where we are right now.

not 100% sure but did Nicolle Wallace say yesterday a large team called in to prep Whitaker

something like they were moving heaven and earth to get him ready for his testimony.

I assume today's news means that it did not go well.

Why am I not surprised.

If not already obvious, Rs are coming for Dems with massive ratf*cking of every candidate

When Charlie Pierce says things are going to get ugly - yeah. Things are going to get Virginia/Warren-ugly EVERYWHERE.

Important to remember - conservatives cannot win on the issues. They are desperate to shift the national discussion away from the Green New Deal, marginal tax rates, gun safety, etc. and onto culture war topics and faux hypocritical outrage and whatever else they can scream and shout about on cable news. Eating up news cycle after news cycle. Bewildering voters. Reversing Dem momentum. Depressing voter turnout. Wounding our party and causing all Americans to say "a pox on BOTH your houses." This is how they attack us.

Even today the media is gleefully assisting in a takedown of Amy Klobuchar because she is "mean to her staff." Mean to her staff, allegedly. And they want to take out one of our strong candidates for "mean to staff" when trump is a racist, a rapist.... The media has no intention of playing fair either. The media is going to vet the hell out of our candidates, fed by right-wing sources of propaganda & slander. The media love to look at Dems and wag their fingers and say tsk tsk tsk.

We need a plan for how to deal with this and we need it yesterday. Not just for ourselves. But for the people who are counting on us. Like the Parkland parents. Like the disenfranchised voters of Georgia. Like the victims of the wildfires and hurricanes. A lot is at stake.

NOTE: I am making no comment on what did happen or what should happen in the Virginia cases. I'm just saying, the Rs want chaos and when they get it they win.

"Sweep the leg" is all they know how to do.

Two reading suggestions: It's Time to Fight Dirty by David Faris, and Troll Nation by Amanda Marcotte.
