I'm just waiting for some journalist to look into a cover-up

Maybe somebody from the Wash Post: "what are the Republicans covering up?"

I am so sick of all this bullshit partisan politicking. Just do your jobs and run the country, f'chissake!

1. It's so obvious that they are rushing because they are scared, and not just of the sexual assault

charges...they were pushing this way too fast before that was even an issue.

2. I'm sure the digging has started; it would be a terrific scoop for somebody.

3. We can't wait for a savior. We live in the crowd source era

and it is all of us who need to participate-even if what we each do seems small. It is still significant. The first step for us is to accept the fact that we are facing a clear and present danger to our survival as a people and as a democracy.

We are in the middle of a coup -a seizure of our government and country by a small group of well connected and inter-related people. Federalist society, graduates of these private grooming schools for the rich , certain billionaires, some but not all corporations. They are not patriots-their allegiance is to themselves and their networks and crews, their materialistic and shallow lives Their only interest in the US is to be a ruling class and enrich themselves at our expense.

Millions of us could die and their only concern would be if it intruded upon or damaged their lifestyle.

They believe there is not enough for everyone to prosper and they want to smash and dash. They do not care about the rest of us and they want only to be the ruling class in an authoritarian world in which life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness is guaranteed only to them

They have been moving ahead or as Grassley says "plowing through" on many fronts. They are attempting to terrorize and engender a sense of hopelessness and inevitability. The grim, dystopian future they want for the rest of us is not inevitable-but we have to unify and fight, and support each other.

they are plowing ahead at the border: hey are still separating families at the border-now focused on the separating of children who are citizens and their non-citizen parents.

They have been packing the courts with federalists for decades and have now been stepping up the pace. They want a corrupt judiciary. They need Kavanaugh on the SC not just to terrorize women but to save Trump and shut down the Russia investigation-

We are being whipsawed by a minority but we are the majority and we can prevail.

5. I think we need to reach an agreement that we are in a battle for our

country and our democratic form of government. I don't think we are all yet at the point so we need to open up discussion. Then it comes to forming a sort of. nation-wide union but with strong local action. `We are a majority but a minority has seized a lot of the levers of our government. We probably have like minded people among us in every nook and cranny in the country who have useful information to provide, and many people skilled in analyzing and planning. Basically we need a nationwide union

I would like us to get more coordinated and less dependent upon stuff like "morning Joe and Mika" for news and opinion. They are a ratings driven infotainment show and are manipulating their viewers.

We the people who want to fight are in the millions but we to be investigating a lot ourselves. Too much is still being filtered by well-meaning outlets which do not understand the clear and present danger, Even worse is the information and misinformation that is being filtered through nefarious outlets.

We have to start naming things-the Federalist Society is an enemy of democracy. It isn't something they hideThe have been putting out propaganda for decades and have gotten their people into positions of immense power. It operates like the worst of fraternities and Kavanaugh is one of the products it has produced. We need to start talking about it and writing about it and citizen-investigating and sharing information about it.

Let's take the Georgia. The attorney general is a Federalist Society lawyer If we had here a thread dealing specifically with the Federalist society as an opponent of democracy, several of us could share developments with people in other states especially those where the society has made inroads-then we can start informing some of the publications where the society plants stories- and start countering them.

I would like to see a branch of the union which specializes in mapping out the the opponents of democracy so we can all get a handle on the networks of negative power and how to monitor their infiltration of our government. Not to stalk them but to counter them. There is no way so many people in power should be coming from the upper classes of the Maryland, /D.C./northern Virginia private school circuit. their experience is simply too narrow and biased for them to function fairly in a diverse society.

I think it is time to start talking more openly about the authoritarian wave that is once again sweeping through western countries-not just emotionally but objectively. We are in a wave like the one that swept over country in the 1930s. We did beat back that wave but we started too late to prevent a bloodbath.

We need a vocabulary for our times. Left and right doesn't seem to fit anymore.

Right now I am looking for 510 people in Georgia who can who are liberal/antiauthoritarian, open-minded, willing to analyze and share and not defeatist.

7. They've been covering up so long, that they have become quite good at it.

When you hold all the power, it's hard to crack the wall of secrets.
