“. . .Combover Caligula’s conniption coup.”

The New Yorker: How You Can Help Restore American Democracy

We have more power than we think. This 24-minute podcast gave me hope.

How You Can Help Restore American Democracy
Thursday, November 19, 2020

In the weeks since Election Day, Donald Trump has refused to concede defeat, fired his Secretary of Defense, ordered his Attorney General to investigate specious claims of voter fraud, and stoked conspiracy theories that the election was somehow fraudulent. Are his actions the flailing response of a sore loser or an attempt at an authoritarian power grab? Academics and activists believe that, in either case, ordinary citizens have more power than they think they do. Andrew Marantz joins Dorothy Wickenden to discuss what has been learned in recent years about successful nonviolent resistance movements, and how to take action to perpetuate a stable democracy.

Damn! Joe Scar's back. n/t

This hour's topic on Thom Hartmann-Should we make nice with TrumpHumpers?

His short answer is NO! Mine too.

Does DU have a way for us to donate to the GA Senate runoff election?

I just donated through ActBlue, but it would be nice if we could do it through this community. There are eight grassroots organizations working hard to win those seats for the Dems and it felt good to help them demote Moscow Mitch. #AllHandsOnDeck

Sometimes, only Leonard Cohen will do. I needed him tonight.

Now on MSNBC-Velshi's 1-hour special on understanding weaponized disinformation. n/t

I had a dark thought about tRump's COVID so-called "incompetence."

If he’s taking orders from Putin, then maybe he’s killing Americans on Putin’s behalf. The fact that most of the casualties are non-white is the racist orange tool’s reward.

For the past hour, I've been trying to listen to MSNBC via TuneIn.

With the exception of a few brief moments of regular programming, all I get is a maddening repetition of, “The station you are listening to is experiencing technical difficulties. We apologize for the inconvenience. Your program will return in a few short moments. Please stand by.”

Anyone else? Is it paranoid to wonder if they are censoring Ali Velshi?
