Got a lot of (mostly really racist) shit this a.m. for casually responding to a Tweet in which @KamalaHarris said she would consider @staceyabrams as a running mate by saying it'd make Trump's head explode and it'd be a great ticket.

There are no magic bullets by which we can solve our gun crisis. We must solve it. We must do what we can, when we can.

Tens of thousands of American innocents die each year of a cause we know we can control. But our politicians do nothing because they take money from those who make the deaths possible. Thatís not corruption. It is a crime.

Someone has to emerge as candidate, that's job one. That person needs to be the best messenger and must have the strongest message.

Ratcliffe as DNI, like Barr at Justice, like Trump's appointees to the Supreme Court and McConnell in the Senate, will be part of the president's praetorian guard, men given positions of great power who have but a single mission, to protect and enable Trump.

While we have been called the United States of America since September 9, 1776, that unity has always been more a dream than a reality.

Dance around it all you want, this p.m. demonstrated that there was collusion and this morning demonstrated that there was obstruction.

Link 7/24/2019 10 Mueller Report
A few reactions to Mueller, Part I: 1. Mueller did as he said he would and conducted himself with integrity and dignity. 2. It is astonishing to me that the huge central fact--that an enemy state undertook a massive effort to get Trump elected--was simply stipulated.

For the record, and for all the drama offered up by cable news surrounding the resolution to condemn Trump's racism, this is all kabuki theater.

the GOP won't express outrage because they aren't outraged. They support the racism, the traitorous behavior, the sexual predation, & the efforts to undermine the Constitution and have proven it over and over and over again. They are not amoral, they're immoral.

Look, party unity is important. And it would be very nice if every Dem agreed on every issue and every candidate choice.

US politics has changed dramatically, even if some politicians & pundits don't realize it.

The idea prevalent among some conservative Dem voters that America is just not ready for a woman president or for a woman of color president ignores the fact that in the last three elections a person of color or a woman got the most votes.

This is a very bleak day for democracy in America. The SCOTUS decision sidestepping their responsibility to ensure that voting maps are not drawn to create unfair advantages for parties is an outrageous error with profound consequences.

Link 6/12/2019 9 Impeachment
The thin strand of legitimacy by which Trump's presidency hangs requires that he defend criminal activity that is a profound, direct threat to American national security.

I believe Trump should be impeached. I believe Barr should be impeached. I believe McConnell should be impeached. I believe Jared and Ivanka should be stripped of their security clearances and fired. I believe Trump Administration officials who ignore subpoenas should be jailed. Alternative to "Apostle's Creed" - I like it -dbciii

The most serious betrayal of the United States by a senior pubic official since the Civil War took place in full view of the public and was confirmed by a thorough investigation. That is what history will see--a corrupt president betraying his country.

What "normal" will the GOP return to after Trump? The Mitch McConnell normal that kept Merrick Garland off the court? The normal of the Georgia or Alabama GOP attacks on a woman's right to choose? The normal of the Republicans who defended Trump's racism and crimes?

There are a large number of DC insider-types I know who support Biden largely because in their calculus he is the best path for their next senior gov't job. But behind the scenes, doubts are rampant, they know the reasons his. past presidential campaigns did not go well.

Note to old school Dems, The "center" is not where you left it. It's not that warm place where bi-partisan compromise was king and Wall St. advisory jobs waited. I have no idea where I fall in thepolitical spectrum. Not "Right", for sure. -dbciii

The main conclusion of the massive Mueller report was that the Russians conducted a sweeping attack on America in order to put Donald Trump in the White House.

The ideas that a president can determine whether or not he ought to be investigated or that a president is incapable of committing obstruction are not just outrageous assaults on Constitutional values.

When I joined the Clinton Admin in 1993, the idea of centrism was that we were open to what was best that was traditionally associated with either party--Democratic social justice, GOP fiscal responsibility or strong defense. What has changed?

We really (really, really) need to work on this deeply flawed opinion that somehow presidents are not to be prosecuted or indicted.

In today's America, the president and those who work for him are above the law. This reads like the Declaration of Independence' littany of charges against King George -dbciii
