    The GOP’s demand for enforcement of U.S. border law is a “partisan” threat to worldwide democracy, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a letter to the Senate. “We cannot let partisan politics get in the way of defending democracy; that would be playing right into the hands of [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and [China President] Xi [Jinping],” Schumer said in the November 26 letter describing his plans for December.

    Former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Inside” that “everybody should vote for” President Joe Biden if they wanted democracy to survive. Partial transcript as follows: HUTCHINSON: Donald Trump isn’t a Republican. And, yes, maybe, by name, he considers himself a Republican, but Donald Trump cares more about authoritarian rule than he does our rule of law. He doesn’t care about preserving our Constitution. He cares about leveraging it for his own power and his own gain. So, when we look at this next election, we need to think about, if we want our democracy to...

    Former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issued a statement marking the death of Rosalynn Carter on Sunday, honoring her work spreading “hope, health and democracy across the globe.” In their statement, the Clintons thanked Rosalynn Carter for her decades of “extraordinary service to our nation and world, and for more than forty years of friendship.” “Rosalynn Carter was a compassionate and committed champion of human dignity everywhere,” they wrote in the statement, adding later, “Rosalynn will be forever remembered as the embodiment of a life lived with purpose.”

    Governor J.B. Pritzker (D-IL) said Sunday on MSNBC’s “Inside” that former President Donald Trump is “dangerous for our democracy” because his language has echoed Nazi Germany. Pritzer said, “The rhetoric that’s being used by Donald Trump, the rhetoric that’s being used by some of the MAGA extremists, it is rhetoric that was used in the 1930s in Germany. I am very concerned about the direction of the country if we see policies like what Donald Trump is espousing come to light for our country.”

    President Joe Biden fundraised off the Democrat Party’s nearly flawless election day on Tuesday, using the victories in Ohio, Kentucky, and likely in Virginia to draw a contrast between “democracy” and “MAGA.” The Republican potential losses in all three states highlight the GOP’s seeming inability to persuade voters of their arguments against late-term abortions.

    KYIV — Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is calling for the immediate suspension of Presidential elections in his country, so that he may focus all his efforts on fighting to protect democracy in Ukraine. "We must suspend democracy to save democracy," said Zelensky during his weekly fundraising telethon. "If we allow democracy to get in the way of fighting for democracy, we might lose our democracy. And our billions of sweet, sweet American dollars. And my superyacht in Dubai... anyway, what was I talking about? Oh yeah, it's time to cancel elections so I may remain president indefinitely." Sources say Zelensky...

    Michael Cohen, a former personal attorney for Donald Trump, said Thursday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that the former president was the “single most dangerous thing to happen to American democracy.” Cohen said, “You must listen to what Donald Trump says. He’s not just speaking, you know, boldly and blindly. He’s telling you exactly what’s on his mind, probably foolish, but he is telling us what’s on his mind, and more importantly, what he intends to do.” He continued, “So when he says that on day one, if he wins, he’s going to rewrite the Constitution, he’s not joking. he thinks...

    New York CNN — A billboard truck drove near Harvard’s campus Wednesday displaying the names and photos of Harvard students whose organizations signed a statement blaming solely Israel for the deadly attacks by Hamas. The “doxxing truck” appeared days after the Harvard Palestine Solidarity Groups, a coalition of Harvard student groups, earlier this week released a statement that held “the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence,” following the attacks by Hamas that have killed more than 1,200 Israelis and more than 25 American citizens. More than 1,400 in Gaza have also been killed since Israel started strikes on...

    A Colorado judge has rejected an attempt by former President Donald Trump to dismiss a lawsuit that seeks to keep him off the ballot here, ruling that his objections on free-speech grounds did not apply. Trump’s attorneys argued that a Colorado law protecting people from being sued over exercising their free speech rights should shield him from the suit, but Colorado District Judge Sarah Wallace said that law doesn’t apply in this case. The law also conflicted with a state requirement to get the question about Trump's eligibility resolved quickly, ahead of the Jan. 5 deadline for presidential candidates' names...

    CNN may never be able to top its now infamous 2020 chyron, “Fiery But Mostly Peaceful Protests…” — but that doesn’t mean the network isn’t still trying. It’s latest effort is an eyebrows-and-ire-raising attack on America’s foundation reading, “SCHOLARS WARN OUTDATED CONSTITUTION HAS PUT DEMOCRACY AT RISK.”Of course, perspective is needed. If the “scholars” — Harvard government professors Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt — mean “democracy” as in the people or our congressmen get whatever they want at the moment based on majority vote no matter how rash, they have a point. The Constitution certainly is an impediment to glorified...
  • Joe Biden 'Defends' Our Democracy From MAGA Republicans

    09/30/2023 4:39:08 AM PDT · by davikkm · 19 replies
    MAGA Republican extremists want to participate in the next election; uncle Joe is here to save us. The truth is, the ideals someone symbolizes to others is more important than their accomplishments, or lack thereof. Martyring them only increases that reality. A certain failed, destitute, mediocre painter from the early part of last century went on to thrust the entire world into a war (that arguably never really ended) after writing a book in prison. Now, it has been a year since the Dark Brandon speech. Over the past year, the most notable thing that has happened is that Donald...

    Trump's former National Security Adviser John Bolton warned that "a second Trump Administration would lead to a constitutional crisis. What will happen when the career people in the Department of Justice, military, and other government agencies resign en masse? It will be the demise of the permanent government institutions that have run this country for generations. Ordinary Americans will be paralyzed with fear. There will be no one to tell them how to live their lives." In a speech commemorating the late Sen. John McCain (R-Az), President Biden lashed out at "the menace Trump and his voters pose to our...

    President Joe Biden issued blunt new warnings about ongoing existential threats to US democracy in a major address Thursday, sharpening the central argument in his potential rematch with Donald Trump and asking voters to prioritize the health of American institutions. “There’s something dangerous happening in America now,” Biden said during his speech in Arizona, where he was also honoring his friend, the late Republican Sen. John McCain. “There’s an extremist movement that does not share the basic beliefs of our democracy: The MAGA movement.” “There’s no question that today’s Republican Party is driven and intimidated by MAGA Republican extremists,” he...

    Talk about being too close for comfort. The 2024 presidential race is all tied up, according to the latest NBC News poll. This survey (unlike some polls), is no outlier. The race between Joe Biden and Donald Trump has been effectively tied for months. Looks like we’re in for another nail-biter. On one hand, this stalemate makes perfect sense. As Cook Political Report’s Amy Walter reminds us, Trump won the 2016 Electoral College by about 79,000 votes in three states, Biden won in 2020 by less than 45,000 in three states, and Republicans won the House by a very narrow...

    Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that he believed House Republicans were peddling falsehoods that are “putting people’s lives at risk.” Discussing Attorney General Merrick Garland’s hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, anchor Nicolle Wallace said, “You’re someone who has been targeted by Donald Trump. I won’t repeat, but I remember some of the harsh and brutal and personal insults and attacks against you, and I wonder what you thought, if that was triggering or if you have words of wisdom for this DOJ workforce and FBI workforce now under unprecedented threat.

    President Joe Biden is rumored to be planning a speech on themes related to “threats” to democracy, according to reports. Multiple outlets detail the speech, which has yet to be officially confirmed, will take place in Arizona, quite possibly on September 28 — the day after the second Republican primary debate. The New York Times cites an individual familiar with the planning, who revealed that the speech could be delivered at the McCain Institute.

    A Democrat candidate for state Senate in Virginia appears to have been raising money for a “good cause” by performing graphic sex acts online, where she told viewers she liked “being choked” and said they could watch her urinate for the right price, according to material reviewed by The Daily Wire. Susanna Gibson, who is running for a seat in the narrowly divided Virginia statehouse, was as recently as last year posting as “HotWifeExperience” on the website Chaturbate, where men could pay tokens to get her to perform specific sex acts. In one video recorded shortly after she launched her...

    In June, two dark money groups hosted private meetings in Washington, D.C. with senior Democratic congressional officials to plot against a third presidential ticket in 2024. Their target was the group No Labels, which is working to gain ballot access for a potential independent unity ticket featuring a Republican and Democrat as running mates. Those scheming to stop No Labels continue to fall back on a single word to describe the effort: Dangerous. What’s so dangerous about providing voters an alternative to President Biden and former President Trump? According to these Democrats, a third ticket would help elect Trump by...

    This week, President Biden has asked Congress to approve a $24 billion aid package for Ukraine. Assistant to the Secretary of Defense John Kirby said "the needs are great. We're hoping that this modest request, which covers only the first quarter of the 2024 fiscal year, will be a springboard for a more comprehensive and durable funding commitment later on." Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said "there is strong bipartisan support for demonstrating America's resolve when it comes to defending democracy around the world. The latest revelation that portions of our earlier aid packages have been siphoned off to...
