A Draw In Wisconsin-- Fascists Win Some (Like Waukesha Of Course), Lose Others (Normal Places)

Yesterday, Ruth Conniff reported that Wisconsin Republicans and conservative activists put on a major push to take over the state's school boards this year, culminating in Tuesday’s 53 school board elections. Far right candidates campaigned on conservative hot-button issues including race in education, coronavirus responses and gender identity identity, giving Wisconsin the third-highest number of such races out of all the states.

Nearly 1/3 of the House GOP is Pro-Putin - Digby's Hullabaloo

A couple of weeks ago, some Republican senators took to the microphones to declare that the war in Ukraine has shown that Democrats are a bunch of weaklings who can’t defend America. What a shocker? One of them even called Joe Biden “Bambi’s brother.” But despite their fist-shaking, you could see they were just going through the motions. That’s because they know their party is hopelessly confused about what they need to do to appeal to their base on foreign policy these days. Elected GOP officials are all over the map on this issue, with a growing faction becoming more hostile to support Ukraine by the day.

It’s actually not unprecedented for Republicans to vote against military action instigated by Democratic presidents and it isn’t even unprecedented for them to refuse to back NATO. Back in the ’90s, many of them voted against intervention in the Baltic region after the former Yugoslavia splintered, even in the face of ethnic cleansing and genocide. The House GOP leader at the time, Tom Delay of Texas, said he didn’t trust the president and claimed the crisis was “falsely described as a huge humanitarian problem, when in comparison to other places, it was nothing.” ( It was not nothing.)

Bernie: "We Have An Oligarchy In This Country And We Might Want to Be Focusing On That As Well"

Yesterday, writing for Politico, Ryan Lizza and Eugene Daniels, noted that Democrats are desperately trying to understand what's roiling the electorate heading into a brutal midterm environment. Every progressive Democrat I speak with knows exactly what's roiling the electorate: a lack of accomplishment.

Focus groups show voters experiencing:

A preoccupation with inflation and crime.
Exhaustion with pandemic restrictions.
Cynicism about politics.
Deep frustration that President Joe Biden and Democrats have failed to deliver on their early promises.
Sympathy for Ukraine mixed with a lack of enthusiasm for Biden spending too much time and money on the issue.

Ambiguity about how important Jan. 6 should be for Democrats in the midterms.
After the Build Back Better bill collapsed, Biden and many Democrats began talking about last year’s two big wins: the American Rescue Plan and the bipartisan infrastructure law. But these two panels of base Democratic voters kept returning to what still needs to be done.

Would Bernie have had more success? We do know he would have tried-- and a lot harder. Take this press release his office released last week: Chairman Sanders to Hold Budget Committee Hearing on Corporate Greed. That hearing was today.

The Midterm Fate Of The Democratic Party Rests With Its Corrupt Republican Wing

Without many tangible accomplishments, many voters who could be reasonably expected to vote blue in the midterms will probably stay home instead. Smart money is betting that swing voters will hold their noses and hand Congress to the Republicans.

Conservative Democrats in Congress-- the most likely to lose their seats in November-- have obstructed Biden's popular agenda and deserve to see their careers ended, preferably in primaries.

In the Senate, the fate of the party rests in the hands of extremely right-wing Democrats Joe Manchin and crazy-woman Kyrsten Sinema, each of whom is contemplating jumping the fence in 2023 and neither of whom is too concerned about the Democrats losing their majorities.

Manchin is dangling a pre-election deal under Schumer's, Pelosi's and Biden's noses again. Politico reported that the response from Bernieland was "I’d love to be wrong, but I’m not holding my breath."

And Manchin is playing coy with the media, knowing it's either his way or the highway for the Democrats. People thinking that Manchin-- or anyone else-- can "deliver" the mentally-unbalanced Kyrsten Sinema could be in for an unpleasant jolt even if the rest of the conference comes to an agreement on something.

Sinema, who has virtually no grassroots support in Arizona, is never going to sell out her billionaire and corporate backers. Corruption oozes from every pore on her body.

There Are Several Important Elections Coming Up In The Next Few Weeks

Many people prefer to contribute to candidates just before election day. That isn't the most effective strategy to help a candidate but it's hardly a waste, since that money usually goes right into GOTV and other field operations... absolutely crucial. Well, guess what, we have crucial primaries coming up next month. So contribution time is nigh.

Are Elections For Sale To The Billionaires Who Spend The Most Perpetrating Fear & Lies?

Last night we saw how rotgut Trumpists and billionaires are trying to recall top notch San Francisco D.A., Chesa Boudin, by twisting statistics and flooding the zone with millions of dollars in false ads. Something very similar is happening in L.A., although the oligarchs (who kicked in over $3 million already) and Trumpists are having a harder time gathering enough signatures to force a recall against George Gascón. And now even the fear-mongering L.A. Times is admitting the manufactured bad rap on Gascón is politically-contrived bullsh*t.

Like Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia, a conservative who switched parties when he decided to run for higher office, Caruso is a conservative Republican who just switched parties a few weeks ago so he could pretend to be a Democrat in his race for mayor. Does he really think Angelenos are that stupid?

Endorsement Alert: Meet Joaquín Vázquez

California’s 51st congressional district– now CA-52— is the very southwest corner of the continental U.S., in the San Diego area and along the Mexican border all the way to Arizona. It’s over 70% Hispanic and it’s very, very blue– and progressive.

Bernie won the district both times he ran for president. The incumbent, Juan Vargas, is a corrupt New Dem with a long, self-serving careerist history, first in the legislature and then in Congress. You might call him business-friendly but a more accurate term is Vargas-friendly.

His opponent is Joaquín Vázquez a working-class, son of Mexican immigrants who was just endorsed by Blue America.

The gravedigger of democracy strikes again - Digby's Hullabaloo

This is so grotesquely cynical, I just don’t know what to say. McConnell wants to accuse incumbent Democrats of being soft on child porn in November so he’s encouraging them to vote against Ketanji Brown Jackson, based upon the horrific lie that she’s an enabler of child sexual exploitation. He’s brazenly exploiting the QAnon faction for electoral gain.

There is nothing he won’t do to maintain power. Nothing:

START: 2pm Pacific 5pm Eastern

It's another Thursday, so Howie Klein is here. With the corporate media screaming doom and gloom and predicting a shellacking in the midterms, we need to go all-in on the great candidates who can turn the party around. That's where Howie comes in.

He heads up the Blue America PAC where, along with Digby and Crooks & Liars' John Amato, they identify and support the best progressive candidates running. Today, Howie introduces us to Melanie D'Arrigo for Congress , running to represent NY's 3rd congressional district.

Rose Mary’s Boo-Boo revisited - Digby's Hullabaloo

Those of a certain vintage will recall the infamous June 20, 1972 “gap” found in President Richard Nixon’s secret Oval Office recordings surrendered during the Watergate investigation.

The White House explanation offered was that somehow Nixon’s personal secretary, Rose Mary Woods, had accidentally erased 18.5 minutes (there were actually five to nine erasures). The erasure covered a conversation between Nixon and Chief of Staff H. R. Haldeman about the Watergate break-in.

Woods told a grand jury how she might have erased it accidentally. Her demonstration — leaning over to answer the phone while her foot contacted a floor switch for the recording device — landed her on the cover of Newsweek. Woods died at 87 in 2005.

Never one to be outdone, Donald Trump’s White House record “gap” half a century after the Watergate coverup is much bigger. Yuge (Washington Post):

Lore And Order-- Half A Trill Got Heisted... Who's Going To Prison? Trump?

The Biden administration was off and running yesterday about spending billions more on funding the police, or, as they put it, fighting crime.

I'm a law and order guy and I like the idea of fighting crime, but I'm far more interested in the kind of real crime, the kind rich people and their corporations commit than the kind of petty crime most police forces spend their energy on-- mostly ineffectively (because so many police forces are made up of, at least in part, the dregs of society). But let's do an experiment.

It's beginning to seep out that rich people stole billions-- even hundreds of billions-- of dollars from the COVID relief programs.

Will they go to prison? Will all their wealth be confiscated? Or will they walk away with slaps on the wrist-- if even that? Let's follow the cases as they drag their way through a broken justice system that is normally used as a punitive tool against the working class.

We are no longer living in a Democracy when the president of our country is cheating and manipulating the post office in order for YOUR VOTES NOT TO COUNT so that he can remain in power. When he is speaking about NOT RELINQUISHING THE PRESIDENCY & is talking about 8 MORE YEARS at the White House. Trump is also asking for foreign interference in our elections. Trump is DIVIDING America (aren't we divided?). He has sent UNMARKED POLICE TO ATTACK OUR OWN CITIZENS who were protesting without violence; we have the RIGHT TO PEACEFUL PROTEST. Trump is keeping BROWN CHILDREN IN CAGES. Trump has been ENDORCED BY LEADERS of the K*K & White Supremacy groups; he has been video taped expressing his believe in improving the race (Eugenics). And don't get this confused I LOVE CAUCASIANS but I believe there's room for all of us.. He has ALWAYS EXPRESSED HIS ADMIRATION FOR PUTIN, KIM JONG-UN & others like them. He is always ATTACKING THE FREE PRESS. And has all his cult followers refuse to watch certain TV channels or read some publications because of his attacks on these media outlets. DOESN'T ALL THIS REMIND YOU OF HI**ER, DICTATORS & LEADERS OF COMMUNIST COUNTRIES? I have no doubt that 4 more years of this will be death to our country.
I wrote this song as a rallying cry for our Republic, Democracy and the Biden/Harris campaign. Please listen/watch and share.
It appears the voter suppression effort has already begun in PA. The local election office received our mail-in ballot requests on 8/22/2020 and has still not mailed out our ballots. If it takes over 5 weeks to get a mail-in ballot how long will it take for the election office to receive our ballots? I'm worried that millions of democrats votes will not be counted in PA. That's why Trump keeps saying he is ahead in the polls in Pa. When in fact he's trailing by 9 points. I also had problems submitting a complaint on the online system. It's designed so that it kicks you out before your complaint goes thru. This is an egregious violation of election law. I also noticed another problem. There is no reference to voter discrimination on the basis of political party affiliation in PA Law. This seems like a gross violation of free and fair elections. How can we have free and fair elections if the election commissioner is not required to allow all party affiliations to vote?

Congratulations Blue America on making the most inaccurate, hate filled, and ignorant ads on all of the internet! Wowzers Amazing, it is truly amazing how desperate the far left is to convince the world that Donald Trump is some kind of dishonorable freak. Most educated people can see straight through your lies and facades. You make the corrupt system, you convince people to do evil, and you convert people into hate filled individuals just like you are. Then you turn around and blame Trump and the police. A Blue America is a communistic satanic society hell bent on selfish extortion, that is no America. #TRUMP2020
"In pandemics... No big spending..." How's trillions of tax payers money. This YouTube ad is an obnoxious song filled with lies funded by foreign communist. It figures that democrats are behind this ad. Do us all a favor and ghost. Only weak minded individuals believe your tabloid style garbage.
I have real concerns about Trump declaring the state of emergency. Doing so gives him unprecedented powers to do things he couldn't otherwise. The one I am most concerned about is he going to postpone or cancel the elections this year? Does he have that kind of authority? Would the US Attorney General and the SCOTUS back him up if he did? What recourse would we have to combat such a blatant power grab? This is what concerns me the most about this so-called emergency.
both parties work against the interest of the middle and working class! #DNCSucks #DNCcheats #BothPartiesSuck
