Jim Jordan wants to run for Governor of Ohio in 2022


Jim Jordan “has begun privately talking about running for governor, according to Ohio Republicans who have spoken with him,” ⁦
⁩ scoops in this great look at how Mike DeWine could have Trump-inspired primary trouble in 2022.

Sorry, can't access the article because it's behind a paywall.

At least this would get him out of the House. Any Ohioans on here? Can you see him beating DeWine?

Oh, ffs, will this never end? Lara Trump wants to run for the Senate in NC


New: Lara Trump, the president's daughter-in-law, is looking to run for the US Senate in North Carolina in 2022.

North Carolina is her home state.

@anniekarni scoops


I believe that Democrat Jeff Jackson , a well-liked NC State Senator will be running against her. I hope he does.

Subverting an election is a felony


The New York Times is calling out Trump’s crimes

Subverting an election is a felony

There's been a criminal referral to the NJ AG asking him to empanel a grand jury to look at subversion of NJ election laws by Trump

Michigan is next.

Why would anyone meet with him?

Trump's lawyer Sidney Powell encouraged Pro-Trump militias to retake the country at the presser



This was just fucking bonkers.


Sidney Powell, Mike Flynn's lawyer now working for Trump, says the election was rigged by "communist money" and a scheme devised by the late Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuala.

Parler is funded by the Mercers


1/. Very disturbing

The @WSJ has just revealed that the social media app Parler, - set up as an alternative to Facebook & Twitter - is funded by the Mercers, the former owners of #CambridgeAnalytica

Parler has had a surge in users since the #Election2020


2/ "They always wanted to create a social network to collect data & disseminate propaganda. Now they have” @chrisinsilico (#CambridgeAnalytica whistleblower)

"Posts on Parler often contain far-right content, antisemitism, & conspiracy theories” @Wikipedia


3/ "To me the easiest fix is for every Conservative to kill two liberals."

Under the guise of free speech, Parler appears to be an uncensored space for libertarians, right-wingers, far-right wingers & conspiracy theorists of every description to come together & share their ideas


5/ “As Parler expanded in 2019, it was squarely focused on creating conditions that would challenge a section of the Communications Decency Act. The company’s purpose seems to be expressly political & aimed at eroding US social media firms.”

Here👇@davetroy follows the money!

How did Tom Cotton run unchallenged by a Democrat this year?

In Bill Clinton’s home state!


Sen. Tom Cotton: "Just today for instance The New York Times called the [Pilgrims'] story a myth and a caricature. In the Food Section, no less. Maybe the politically correct editors of the debunked 1619 Project are now responsible for pumpkin pie recipes at the Times as well."

I keep telling y’all, Tom Cotton will be the smart, competent version of Trump’s pseudo-populist fascism in 2024 & the Democratic Party damn well better get ready because he’s not a mentally ill criminal buffoon like Trump. He’ll end the American experiment in less than a year.

This is who John Dean was referring to in his book Authoritarian Nightmare, I believe. He wrote that right now there’s another authoritarian out there who hates democracy and is planning on running for President only he/she will be smarter, better organized and more competent than Trump.

Dave Wasserman called it for Malinowski (D-NJ) We won another seat in the House


I've seen enough: #NJ07 Rep. Tom Malinowski (D) *gained* ground in today's Somerset/Morris county updates, and his lead is back above 5,000 votes.

Tom Kean (R) lacks a realistic path back, and House Dems breathe a huge sigh of relief.

Trump just appointed a guy who consorts with white supremacists to a Holocaust panel


NEW: Darren Beatty was fired from WH in 2018 for consorting w/ white supremacists. (He was an ally of Stephen Miller.)

Lately, he has been pushing conspiracy theories about George Soros.

Naturally, Trump has now appointed him to a Holocaust panel.

WASHINGTON — A former speechwriter fired from the White House in 2018 for attending a conference at which white supremacists were also present has been appointed to a commission tasked with preserving Holocaust-related sites across Europe.

The former speechwriter, Darren Beattie, will join the Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad, according to a press release sent by the White House on Tuesday evening.

Beattie’s three-year term on the commission gives him, like other Trump appointees, a foothold in the federal bureaucracy long after President-elect Joe Biden takes office.

Jewish groups expressed dismay at news of Beattie’s appointment. “It’s appalling that someone who was considered too close to xenophobic white nationalists to continue working in the Trump White House would now be appointed to a U.S. government body focused largely on the preservation of sites dedicated to the memory of Holocaust victims,” said Logan Bayroff, communications director for J Street, a progressive Jewish lobbying organization.


Check out this protest in Germany over COVID restrictions. They had to bring out the water cannons.


Police used water cannons to disperse thousands of people who were protesting against Germany's COVID-19 measures in Berlin, as parliament discussed further restrictions. https://abcn.ws/32Vvm1U

We're not the only democracy full of lunatics.
