Today, we sent a letter w/ @RepMaloney & @RepRaskin to NYC's 5 District Attorneys requesting information on excessive bail in the NYC court system. When prosecutors seek excessive cash bail, it results in increased rates of incarceration — particularly for low-income defendants.
Rep. Devin Nunes: "We knew it was completely made up. We knew the FBI was in on it. We knew the Clinton campaign was in on it."
The 'Russia Hoax' will go down as "the biggest scandal in political history."
The claim that Joe Rogan -- a supporter of Bernie Sanders, an anti-imperialist, a crusader against factory farms, etc. -- is of the "far right" is the kind of stupidity in which liberals specialize: "let's try to expel the most influential media figure and insist he's our enemy."
Joe Rogan is solidfying his ties with the far right, while at the same time returning to be one of the most prominent faces of the UFC and a linchpin of Spotify's podcast network. And no one making money from any of this seems to mind a bit:
Don't let employees of media corporations convince you that they speak for the people on whose behalf they claim to speak. They don't. Polling data and moving scenes like this repeatedly demonstrate the huge gap between elite discourse and prevailing sentiments.
Father of Ahmaud Arbery just now: “ALL lives matter. I don’t want no daddy to watch his kid get shot down like that. It’s ALL our problem. So let’s keep fighting to make this a better place for all human beings. Love everybody! All human beings need to be treated equally.” ❤️👏🏼👑
This is Jackson Sparks.
He was 8 years old.
He was one of six who lost his life when Darrell Brooks attacked the Waukesha Christmas Parade.
Say a prayer tonight for Jackson and everyone who was impacted by this disturbing attack.
We implore the folks in the media, who’ve been dismissing the dangerous policies of rogue prosecutors for too long, to comprehend the level of public outrage. The growing concern over #BailReform is a sign that you can no longer turn a blind eye—America expects you to cover it!
Breaking: The affidavit against the #Waukesha massacre suspect has been released. We learn new details, including that there were 62 injured, that the driver stopped then accelerated, & that witnesses said driver drove in zigzag to hit as many as possible.
How left-wing postmodernism works: the word "looting" is criticized more than the act of looting itself. Symbolic interpretation is prioritized over physical reality—all in service of elite political ideology.
