More than just Trump, the House Committee on Homeland Security will be our nation's shield

It looks as though we will gain the House, so people need to start looking at this committee now, contacting legislators and making sure the literal best and brightest are here.

It is tragically clear our government and executive branch is not equipped to deal with radicalized extremists of the alt-right, III%ers, incels, white nationalists, Islamophobes, and the ultra right which sees these groups as tips of the spear in reactionary genocide.

It will be up to this committee to right that wrong.

1. And the House Intelligence Committee,

probably led by Adam Schiff and minus the odious Devin Nunes.

2. Might be wise to wait until tomorrow to cross these bridges.

3. True, but I also think it is also wise to begin talking about this issue now

5. Exactly, has everyone called, texted, and emailed their friends, family, and coworkers? Still a lot

of voting needs to happen.

7. We don't want to start running before we catch the ball.

Is the "colorful sports metaphor."

6. Not to mention cybersecurity.

Building a more secure internet infrastructure should be a key priority if we can retake this committee. If we stop Putin and his troll army here, we can stop them for good. Fuck building a wall around Mexico, I want to build a cyber wall at the Kremlin, and make Putin pay for it. Can we do that?
