Indivisible on Offense: Retail politics (Democratic) for the beginner

quote [ Change in political playing field prompts update to protest guide ]

I don't join anything, but if here was a local chapter I would at least have to go to a meeting.

Anonymous CIA officials say the agency has “high confidence” that Mohammed bin Salman is behind the journalist’s murder.

quote [ The C.I.A. made the assessment based on the crown prince’s control of Saudi Arabia, which is such that the killing would not have taken place without his approval, and has buttressed its conclusion with two sets of crucial communications: intercepts of the crown prince’s calls in the days before the killing, and calls by the kill team to a senior aide to the crown prince. ]

Like there was ever a doubt...They brought a bone saw, it was no accident.

Florida orders first ever statewide hand-recounts as legal fights continue Following a five-day machine recount of the more than 8.3 million votes cast in the Nov. 6 elections

quote [ The order gives canvassing boards in the state's 67 counties three days to pore over thousands of ballots that were rejected by machines because of "overvotes" — a voter appears to have chosen more than one candidate in a race — or "undervotes," in which a voter appears to have skipped a race altogether. With the help of state guidelines, the canvassing boards, which are allowed to enlist the help of volunteers, will try to determine how these voters intended to vote. ]

This comes down to was this a machine error or was this just the case of a badly constructed ballot form...a hand count should settle it.

The Kristallnacht Election

quote [ The most disturbing thing for me about this year's election is that over 25 percent of my neighbors voted for a neo-Nazi.

Eighty years after that dark night in Europe, America’s midterms were a contest to see how much of the country could be mobilized on a basis of hysteria and mass loathing ]

Beyond a blue wave there was an ugly side of America that was exposed.

Who are these people and Why are there so damn many of them?

quote [ Early voting is blowing the doors off this midterm election, but it's unclear what that means for Tuesday

“Something special is going on right now,” said Michael McDonald, a University of Florida political scientist and leading expert on early voting. “The numbers we’re seeing are unprecedented.”

If the trend continues, he said, turnout could be the highest since 49% of eligible voters cast ballots in the 1966 midterm vote, and may even top 50%, a level of midterm voter participation that hasn’t been seen in more than a century, since the election of 1914. ]

I think it is too late to change anybody's vote.

Bombs and bullets be damned, Trump Doubles down on White Nationalist close to 2018 elections.

quote [ The Pentagon announced Monday it will deploy 5,200 additional troops to the U.S.-Mexico border by the end of the week to stop thousands of migrants and refugees in a caravan from entering the country. ]

It is obvious Bob Dole, even though he won at the time, has lost that fight for the soul of his party. This is a complete departure for the party of Lincoln. There have been dog whistles since the time of Reagan and Buchanan but this is the first full on push into the White Nationalist realm.

Well, that was quick.

quote [ “It's a terrible, terrible thing what's going on with hate in our country, frankly, and all over the world. And something has to be done."

President Donald Trump

"If there was an armed guard inside the temple, they would have been able to stop him," Trump said before boarding a flight to a Saturday rally.
Trump previously said in a tweet that the shooting was "far more devastating than originally thought." ]

I think I should keep quiet on this one..my feelings are well known.
