Today makes me ask the burning question: when will we legalize cannabis?

A lot of y’all need to investigate this edible marijuana thing if it’s legal in your state. And give some to your republican neighbors. We need this stuff legalized.

WOW! I just discovered Rachel Maddow's podcast: ULTRA. It is FANTASTIC!

As always she and her team do incredible research. I had no idea how this whole Christian maga crap is just an extension of the nazi influence into American politics from 1940’s. It’s a little more than a half hr but oh so worth the listen.

Can someone explain how the f*ck someone could vote for Kelly and not Hobbs?

It makes no sense. Why would someone vote for kelly add then turn around and vote for Krazy Lake? This AZ gov race shouldn’t be this tight. What gives?

Just heard Blake Master saying he has hope for Maricopa Co. to bail him out.

I’ll say it now. I will be surprised if it breaks in his favor. He is a maga trump crony and Republicans there are deeply mccain brand of republican. They HATE maga and blake masters is a lunatic like krazy kari lake. There is a reason why Biden won. Why Mark Kelly beat Martha McSally. And I read somewhere Masters # is trailing McSally’s. But you never know…. Fingers crossed….

Polls were way off. It didn't take into account ROE THE VOTE

I think people remembered the gop’s mercilessly butchering women’s health and reproductive freedoms.. They may not talk about it, but I think they thought about it when they voted.

People are so rude and angry these days. Is it just me? Or where I am?

I’m in AZ and everywhere I turn, people in general are just so much more ill mannered, hot tempered, angry, and rude.

Accused Russian Agent Gave to One Politician: Tulsi Gabbard

Tulsi Gabbard, a former Democratic congresswoman from Hawaii and 2020 presidential dark horse candidate, has long perplexed U.S. officials and observers with her seemingly inexplicable pro-Russian positions. And a new development this week is sure to reinforce the half-jokes that Gabbard is a “Russian asset”; as it turns out, her campaign took money from one.

FBI warned of white supremacists in law enforcement 14 years ago. Has anything changed?

In the 2006 bulletin, the FBI detailed the threat of white nationalists and skinheads infiltrating police in order to disrupt investigations against fellow members and recruit other supremacists. The bulletin was released during a period of scandal for many law enforcement agencies throughout the country, including a neo-Nazi gang formed by members of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department who harassed black and Latino communities. Similar investigations revealed officers and entire agencies with hate group ties in Illinois, Ohio and Texas.

Much of the bulletin has been redacted, but in it, the FBI identified white supremacists in law enforcement as a concern, because of their access to both “restricted areas vulnerable to sabotage” and elected officials or people who could be seen as “potential targets for violence.” The memo also warned of “ghost skins,” hate group members who don’t overtly display their beliefs in order to “blend into society and covertly advance white supremacist causes.”

“At least one white supremacist group has reportedly encouraged ghost skins to seek positions in law enforcement for the capability of alerting skinhead crews of pending investigative action against them,” the report read.

Problems with white supremacists in law enforcement have surfaced since that report. In 2014, two Florida officers — including a deputy police chief — were fired after an FBI informant outed them as members of the Ku Klux Klan. It marked the second time within five years that the agency uncovered an officer’s membership in the KKK. Several agencies nationwide have also launched investigations into personnel who may not be formal hate group members, but face allegations of race-based misconduct.

Proud Boy's attorneys argue Trump to blame for deadly Capitol insurrection

At a hearing on the government’s request that William “Billy” Chrestman remain incarcerated pending trial, his attorneys said the Olathe man was not a serious flight risk, chances were slim that he would attempt to obstruct the prosecution and he was not a danger to the community.

“It is an astounding thing to imagine storming the United States Capitol with sticks and flags and bear spray, arrayed against armed and highly trained law enforcement,” Chrestman’s attorneys said in a court filing opposing the prosecutors’ request. “Only someone who thought that they had an official endorsement would even attempt such a thing.

“And a Proud Boy who had been paying attention would very much believe he did.”

That endorsement, Chrestman’s defense argued, came from Trump

This is Trump's heaping list of legal problems post-impeachment

After averting a conviction in his second impeachment trial, former President Donald Trump faces significant new legal threats as prosecutors in Georgia have joined those in New York to conduct criminal investigations into his actions.

As the nation watched harrowing videos from January 6 of Trump supporters storming the US Capitol during the Senate impeachment trial this week, Georgia officials announced they have opened investigations into Trump's efforts to overturn the state's election results, including by pressuring officials to "find" votes to swing the outcome in his favor.
