Start the rumor. It isn't going to pass. The nomination is toast!

With all the Republicans and former Trump officials and military people coming out against him, it is political suicide to continue to do the immoral, unjustified things that he is asking them to do. And this nomination is one of them.

As I wrote to Ben Sasse the other day, "If you want to avoid a bloodbath, stop doing the wrong things! Beside you know it's wrong, hypocritical, and against the will of the people. Just because you covet it doesn't mean it's right!"

Put the pressure on them folks. The Republicans are starting to crack.

Let's put the pressure on the news media too. This is not a done deal!!!

6. I'm helpless with hashtags. Does that exist? Is that the best one we can imagine?

so willing to spread this word any way that takes the crack that is beginning to form between Republicans and him and drive it wide open. please help this cause if you can, and I will put some effort in.

10. I just made it up - I'm not on Twitter.

I think it's a good hashtag to start with, though.

28. This is what I sent my repug senators yesterday.........

Dear Sen............deep down you know that DJT is the wrong man for POTUS as we slide

into FASCISM, you are aware DJT plans to use the SCOTUS to steal this election. By voting

for Amy Coney Barrett you're killing this NATION, the Republican party, and all your future

reelection hopes. Time to throw him under the BUS.

Yours Truly...........my name

Oh, that would be sweet.

And I do think it's possible.

Ever open an oyster? Find that one little spot and twist a little and there you go.

15. If Any was worth a shit she would ask to not be confirmed until after the election at least.

 

At least the election would reflect the true will of the people and the GOP Senators might vote accordingly. (I know I am dreaming but hey, I have been having nightmare since 2016)

22. So many principles say this is wrong. I say the human heart adores principles...

I know, in this cynical age, we do not always believe this. Speak truth to power, we say, but we don't do it or do it strongly enough.

Now is the time to speak truth to power. And this is wrong. And it is a power grab. And anyone who assist in this will be tarnished and wounded just as clearly as it seems Trump will be tarnished and wounded.

if they wish to avoid this, they can just quietly back off!!! That, I believe, is not only the moral thing to do, I believe it is actually the wise thing to do and the thing that most assures longterm survival.

Now just to get them to believe that. I don't think it's as hard as we think it is when we are so propagandized by despair and cynicism.

20. He is so far. I believe that leaning on him and using his own words to do it is still

something worthwhile doing.

I'm doing it.

I urge others to do the same.

It is simply unthinkable that a President can nominate and have accepted the judge he thinks will hand an election to him. Many other reasons this is an unethical, immoral, mean-spirited, unwise move on everyone's part and they could do best for U.S., their party, and themselves by backing off!!! Not so hard to do. Move away from that weapon now. I know you want to use it. But just move away. Simple to do.

31. Oh, that would be good. But enough? They are so afraid and such crooks.

What I've been following is all the fear from Republican Senators about Trump tanking, assuming he does bigtime. Then there is less incentive to follow his shitty lead in putting this nomination forward. We don't need that many of them to break, and I'd like to start or continue the momentum.

Open always to ideas. If you hear or find more about tape, would be interested for sure.

Thanks!
