To my followers/readers:
Let's try and throw some support here today as many new users are here.
@LiliVonShtupp That’s me every time I come back from visiting my dad. I’m sorry (for both of us).
Trump's claim that Bolton can publish his book when he leaves the White House doesn't support his claim that Bolton's conversations and contacts with him rise to the level of being classified.
Put even more clearly: if the material becomes fit to publish once Trump leaves office, by definition it's not classified. Classifications survive presidential turnover. It's obvious, therefore, that the restriction until Trump leaves office is purely political.
@Tenacious You’re welcome!
@uyakon Believe me, I did too. 😭
@Tenacious When you’re composing a toot, look for the paper clip. (That’s if you’re using the website. All of the apps are slightly different, but they will also have a way to attach an image.) You’ll need to have the gif already on your device/computer and upload it.
That's a great resource. Thank you.
I use it to track things like local election law in the states. Lots of good things on it.
@IronMan There is a good resource for tracking the consistent circumvention of Senate confirmation - as well as the attrition of administration officials, where they came from and where they went after - I haven't looked at it in awhile, but it is regularly updated and worth a bookmark: https://www.brookings.edu/research/tracking-turnover-in-the-trump-administration/
First, we have to continue to agree to support the eventual Democratic nominee and work with others to elect the next Democratic President.
The key concept here is that Mick Mulvaney admits that the GOP actively sabotages the economy when Democrats are in power to make themselves look better.
Tell your friends and fellow voters the truth about the Republican economy. Sharing information with people off social media is key to making change.
If you copy the link to the toot—not the text, but the link—and then paste that link into a new toot, this toot you’re reading right now is how it will look. It’s not as quick and simple as a QT button, but it works pretty well. 🙂
@Tenacious @AgentHill Like so... I got the link by tapping “More.” It will look different on other apps and the website, but there’s always something similar as far as I’ve looked into it. https://mastodon.social/@Tenacious/103692909383157021
All Americans should be terrified at Trump's efforts to purge our government of any employees who have a whiff of integrity and replace them with loyalists, experience not required.
Trump is deliberately avoiding Senate confirmation by filling the administration with "acting" officials. These are dangerous times that will only get worse if we don't act accordingly in working to remove Republicans from office.
Dear people who are voting in Democratic primaries for the first time,
The Democratic Party has had liberals in it for a long time, so showing up and immediately demanding that non-moderates drop out is like moving into a house where people already live and trying to replace all the furniture and decor on the first day. Try getting to know us a little bit and compromising. Maybe we can pair your armchair with our couch, and we could go in together on a rug and a coffee table.
