Another Progressive is giving it a go, as usual receiving no funds from large PACs, only small individual donations, Jessica Cisneros Announces her Texas Run

We will see if the Dem Establishment moves in with it's counter candidate and PAC money

 

  

Sucks to be her, then. She should be doing more to secure funding. That's a critically important part of American electoral politics. Most large organizations are willing to donate money to candidates supporting good community policy even if only for the virtue signal.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Progressives have this as policy, they avoid any Corp PAC money due to their corrupting influences on policy making, they feel only the people should have any influence on politicians and how the country is ultimately governed for the greater good 

Most other Western Governments have very strong rules controlling the influence of big money in politics, the US is quite unique in this regard as it allows lobbing at all levels to influence politicians  

Powerful individuals/Corps/Orgs (e.g. Gun Lobby) do have an incredibly long lasting and corrupting influence in US society

One of the funniest things I've seen.

Ready for the twist?



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

I thought this was interesting concerning Joe Rogan and his show.  This is a classic case of when someone takes pieces of information to support their opinion without actually knowing what they are talking about.  We see this a lot especially in today's media where uninformed people throw out misinformation concerning a subject they really have no strong understanding of.

After her defeat in the Ohio Democratic Primary to Republican backed Democrat Shontel Brown, the progressive Nina Turner may run for the Senate in Ohio currently held by a Republican, we wont know until she makes an announcement on her future plans mid-September, she is very upbeat which is great to see

So Cuomo announced his resignation as Governor of New York yesterday and that his Lieutenant Governor, Kathy Hochul, will replace him in two weeks, making her the state's first female governor. Rachel Maddow put Hochul's path to this position in pretty clarifying perspective yesterday by chronicling the history of her political ascendancy over the last 15 years, revealing a remarkably consistent pattern of not only her, but also other women around her, ascending the ranks because of sex abuse type scandals engulfing the men around them: the Republican and Democratic ones alike. From Congress to Attorney General to Lieutenant Governor to Governor. Every step up the ladder for Hochul, and even for other women around her, has featured these same hallmarks. Maddow thus, I think successfully, paints a picture not of an isolated case of male toxicity on the part of Andrew Cuomo, but of indeed a whole culture of male toxicity and misogyny that has led to this moment -- from Letitia James becoming the Attorney General who led the investigation into Cuomo to Kathy Hochul becoming the state's next Governor. Maddow's point is...maybe this shouldn't be what it takes to get a female governor.

People sometimes ask me, "Janice, why do you feminist?" This is why. Because this is how a woman becomes governor in America in 2021. That is all.



Yvette Simpson, the CEO of Democracy for America, debated why Nina Turner lost in Ohio's 11th district with Rahm Emanuel and host George Stephanopoulos on ABC News, its great to get a fuller perspective of events that are often clouded in mainstream media

It's been pretty entertaining lately watching (some) perpetuators of The Big Lie start to see some consequences for their actions. Politicians being turned on by the very people they radicalized, Mike Lindell's cyber symposium being a pathetic dumpster fire, and companies like Dominion dropping the hammer on propagandists in court. One particularly amusing example is their recent suit against OAN, whose 'election expert' was actually...a swing set installer and convicted drug dealer...

Seems Republicans are trying to kill as many children as possible.

Why is it that whenever decent human beings try to get America out of a major disaster the Republicans have to try their damnedest to make it all worse?

They really are a white collar terrorist group.
