'Something is wrong' with presidential election, says civil rights leader Diane Nash


Nash said she did not take positions for or against political candidates, but she did blast the political system candidates operate in. In particular, Nash showed distaste for the U.S. Supreme Court's 2010 Citizen United ruling that opened the door allowing massive amounts of money to flood into political coffers.

"We no longer have a government of, for and by the people," she said; we have now a government of, for and by the corporations, and it's up to this generation to recover democracy" ...

America Is Turning Into a Confederacy of Dunces

Why is Donald Trump within a whisker of the White House? Two-thirds of the country can’t even name the three branches of government


In struggling for some explanation for the inexplicable events of this election season — in particular, the fact that someone as unqualified and ignorant as Donald Trump is as close as he is to the most powerful post in the world — I keep coming back to a conversation that a friend had with her trainer at a posh gym in Manhattan. The New York City trainer is a bright and personable woman in her 20s. But when my friend casually referred to Hillary Clinton’s hearings on Benghazi, Libya, she was befuddled. Not just because she had never heard of the Benghazi controversy … but because she had never heard of the secretary of state, the State Department, or of U.S. ambassadors. She was just as blissfully unaware of the existence of the two houses of Congress, with each appointing committees to focus on matters of national concern ...

Social Media Spots Startling Message in Melania Trump's Hot Pink Debate Outfit


Was Melania Trump subtly signaling her support for Democratic presidential nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton through her wardrobe choice this evening?

That was the speculation by the wardrobe-readers on Twitter.

Mrs. Trump, a former model and the wife of Republican nominee and former reality television personality Donald Trump, wore a hot pink high-neck ***** blow blouse, reportedly by Gucci (and retailing for $1100) from Gucci, and matching pants, to Sunday night’s town hall-style debate held at Washington University in St. Louis ...


The color and style are both ones that are frequent favorites of Clinton’s, Donald Trump’s rival for the presidency, which led plenty on Twitter to speculate that Mrs. Trump is, in fact, #WithHer.

Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
18 family members tested positive for COVID after a holiday party in Pennsylvania, including a one year old baby. YES of course they were white. The mother knew she had "something", but during a world pandemic she didn't think it was COVID. This is insane! They just keep spreading it!
Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
