Fatsen your seatbelts

Raise your guard. The diner here this morning is electrically quiet with murmurs and whispers. My usual seat at the far left of the counter was covered in a garbage bag and my usual order was served to me in a to go box. On top of their fearless leader being raided We tragically had a 24 year old officer shot and killed by a black gang member he pulled over on the highway on the outskirts of town last weekend at 3am. The first officer to die in 90 years

I live around these fuckers. Im just tellin ya get ready.

Velshi displayed the corporate collar he's forced to work under

on Prime last night. Dont get me wrong, I really like him. But as with any TV "news" today the corporate boardroom always has its thumb on the scale. In his interview with Sen. Amy Klobuchar about trying to clarify the Electoral Count Act Veshi, smartly I might add, quickly moved the question to Kansas and the women's rights vote. From this point on, and really if you watch the interview closely, Sen. Klobuchar was caught a bit off guard, I think not expecting that question. She's straight up always prepared and seldom stumbles over her words. You could see her rapidly shifting gears to that question, the usual grin on her face slowly growing bigger. Then Velshi masterfully offers her up the primo 60 seconds. He asked her about Sinema and the reconciliation bill. Sen. Klobuchar was on the train now, spent about 15 seconds on Sinema then lit up like a Xmas tree, took the free solo, about all of the things the bill would do, listing 10-12 other good things in the bill that many people may not be aware of, with the exorbitant passionate charm that makes her so good. During that last part Velshi was quietly trying to interrupt her roll with his best Willy Wonka "please, no, stop" as he felt the corporate collar tighten. He finally told her she had given at least 10 things that need to be talked about and "we all" need to keep talking about them with a falsely irritated tone. He could at least cover his ass in the morning meeting with that evidence

It was like Coltrane and Miles fucking with Monk on Straight no Chaser what I saw, maybe my weed is better than I thought.


Liz be running in 2024

IMO that closer was a shot over the bow to the extremists in the repuke party. Always been my fear out of this, the resurrection of the neo-cons, and they come out looking like saviors in all of this.

In the words of Charlatan NRA Heston

I'll give you my vote when you pry my right from my cold dead hands.

This week is a big deal

Yes with the 1/6 hearings but IMO with the House beginning to put bills on the floor to put repukes on record via votes concerning massively popular laws protecting privacy and choice. THIS will fend off anything these fucks throw at us in Nov. and let us retain the House.

These bills give Dems in the house ammo, big time ammo, ammo they desperately need, to fight the BS the repukes are trying to sell. Honestly, if this week is a sign, it's the most proactive I've seen the party at the House level in a long time. Nancy needs to keep it up. Pile drive these bills for the next 3 months.

It's so important for Dems running in the House. We have to put the repukes on their heels. Roe is the opportunity, but privacy is the hammer. Fuck it if the bills don't get through the Senate, the House is where we are vulnerable. Give these House members the Javelin missiles they need to fight these fascist crazy fucks in the micro world districts they have to run politically.

Leadership needs to continue to evolve from reactionary fear and to keep it up. Do not let up. Never give up. Gatling Gun these fuckers Nancy, I beg you.

I'm busting my ass, doing everything in my power

To replace (R)Todd Young with (D) Thomas McDermott Jr. in the US senate this midterm. Mayor Tom is getting out spent 10-1 but he's not giving up. I wish Dems would pay more attention to this state. it's not nearly as red as some think, polls be damned. I'm embarrassed how Indiana was deceived by the child of Bayh whom ended up driving a stake into the democratic party in this state that we are still recovering from. I was one that bought the bullshit of the youngest governor the state has known, only to be let down by someone who held self interest over public service. it's not always easy to spot smart charlatans, likeable carpet baggers, especially when you're young. I'm embarrassed by how much the rural and semi rural towns in this state bought into the christofascists repuke revival show that barreled into this state after it was devastated, 'softened' by the initial repuke artillery barrage of union busting, corporate farm land grabs and decimation of education. They did to this state and other agri states the same, the exact same thing, they did to the coal mining states of the east. Textbook.

Indiana may not turn blue this midterm but there are very positive signs for 2024, especially among younger voters. I can' tell you how many younger voting age people I call who are willing to engage, listen and respond with more positivity than expected to the message we are trying to get out. It's nearly 2 to 1 compared to voters I contact over 40. That's a positive sign to me that Thomas's message, the party's message and the progressive message is landing where it counts, the future.

But the fight needs to really go into overdrive as we enter August. We all here know how threatened that future could be no matter what if these fascists win on Nov. Thats part of the message we are trying to get out on these calls. I really encourage everyone, engage as much as you can, locally on up. I'm not doing much but I'm telling you, the positive feed back I'm getting from these calls is ever increasing as the weeks go by. As flat out pissed i get at the overall picture at times, this glimmer reassures me all is not lost, that we can beat these assholes on any piece of dirt in this country if we try hard enough.

NEVER give up


Watching todays hearing, Smedly Foul picked up a can of diet Dr. Pepper

I asked my partner, "did you just see how she drank that?" I told her that she knocked back that can with all of the professionalism of Blutarsky. I was surprised she didn't crush the can into that Aqua net re-enforced boulder she calls hair.

Top it all off Rachel said something similar in a quick quip tonight. We know who wears the hood in the Powell family lmao

Bannon and Flynn are both former military officers

Not grunts per se, fucking officers in the US military. Regardless of rank, as members of the officer core of the US military they both need to be prosecuted within the military. There are numerous enlisted individuals prosecuted all the time within the military who are sentenced to years in military prison under military law. These two continue to violate military law openly, they continue to violate their oaths as officers of the US military. Military law is not the same as the law you and I are used too. They should be, must be prosecuted under military law for sedition against not just the Constitution but against the offices of the executive and legislative branches of our government. Letting these fucks get away with this shit is so fucking dangerous. It opens the doors to potential seditionists in the military that they can use their positions to back a political coup without any repercussions. These fuckers must be prosecuted period.

Just reported on MSNBC Deadline White House

Biden considering declaring a health emergency for abortion access. Sorry no link, listening on radio.

I want to know who the hell Meadows was talking to in the car....

she stated she was asked to let Meadows know that the mob was getting close to the Capitol. She said he was in the car on a phone call. She walked to the car and tried to open the door and he immediately shut the door on her. She said she waited a moment then tried to open the door and again he shut the door on her. She said that was very unlike him and she thought it was important that he knew that they were at the Capitol and the Capital police were beginning to have trouble. She said it was 25 min before he got off the phone and got out of the car.

She finally told him the info she was asked to convey and all he said was how much longer was left in the presidents speech, that was his only reaction. This was exactly at the time the initial group of Proud Boys were beginning to go after the police at the bike racks, the testimony we heard from the first day and before the main flow of the rest of the rally goers started heading down.

Cheney made a point to set that timeline twice. Who the hell was on that 25 min call as this was going on? I have a feeling he was in direct contact with Stone and/or Flynn and/or the organized "first strike" attackers who were to "soften up" and open pathways for the mob to get into the Capitol. That's super damning stuff for Meadows if they have a record of that call.
