#Biden set to announce support for major #SCOTUS changes!!!

Plans include proposals for legislation to establish #TermLimits for the justices & an ENFORCEABLE #ethics code

#POTUS Biden is finalizing plans to endorse major changes to the #SupremeCourt in the coming wks….

He is also weighing whether to call for a constitutional #amendment to eliminate broad #immunity for presidents & other constitutional officeholders….


Very bad idea to jettison the candidate selected by the primary voters just because NYTimes said so.

3/ Weird. Trump was found guilty too, yet he's still out there fascisming.

And he had his very own judge dismiss one of his cases.

And he's got 6 SCOTUS justices in his pocket.

President Biden: Why don't you guys ever talk about the 28 lies he told? Where are you? Why didn’t the press ever talk about that? 28 times. He lied in that debate

Holt: I just ask the question because…

President Biden: I was there. And by the way, you won't answer the question. Why didn't the press talk about all the lies he told?

Holt: We have reported many of the issues…

President Biden: No, you haven't. God love you


If the organizers of the Tour de France think it's worthwhile protecting the health of athletes from #COVID19 with mask rules, can someone tell me why healthcare organizations, medical facilities and hospitals don't think it's worth protecting the lives of ill, immunocompromised and vulnerable patients in the same manner?

I think that we should amend the constitution such that SCOTUS appointees have up or down votes like every thirteen years such that it's always just one on the ballot at a time.

Yes, I want to expand the SCOTUS to thirteen justices.

The CA #law, signed on Mon by Gov #GavinNewsom, a #Democrat, bans #school districts from requiring #teachers to notify parents if their children change their #gender identification.

“This is the final straw,” #Musk posted on X. It is “attacking both families & companies.” He added that he had previously warned the #California governor of such consequences.

"When you feed a baby, Bobby, a vaccination that is like 38 different vaccines, & it looks like it's meant for a horse, not a, you know, 10-pound or 20-pound baby."

[omg; these guys are #IDIOTS; #medicine dosage is calculated by age & weight & multiple other factors]

#Trump referenced previous such conversations w/ #RFKJr …saying, "You & I talked about that a long time ago." Kennedy said, "Yup" — the only time he spoke in the video.

‘“If I had been vice president, I would have told the states, like Pennsylvania, Georgia and so many others, that we needed to have multiple slates of electors, and I think the U.S. Congress should have fought over it from there,” Vance said.’

(That’s not how it works—see U.S. Constitution, Art. 2, Sect. 1, Clause 2)



Leaked video of a phone call between independent candidate #RFKJr & #Trump shows Trump expressing doubt about #vaccines & recounting the attempt on his life & his subsequent phone call w/President #Biden.

Kennedy's son, #BobbyKennedy III, appears to have posted the nearly 2-min clip on X (Twitter) Tues morning.

Nothing shows respect for the people acting as human shields to protect you like delaying getting to safety in order to posture for a crowd.

I hear that.
There were actual casualties at the event. And there are no pictures of them being attended to, receiving emergency care. No pictures, no video, no nothing. Just a bullshit hero-narrative.

It looks to me like the real casualties were left to suffer and die.

The Maga way to win women's votes

Trump declares about Roe vs Wade "I did that"

and his running mate DJ Vance says women who find themselves in a marriage with a violent husband


This is the rotting corpse of the Republican party


#JDVance proposed a bill that would make #gender-affirming care for minors a federal #felony & block taxpayer funds from being used for it, saying in a statement, "Under no circumstances should doctors be allowed to perform these gruesome, irreversible operations on underage children."

I’ll Bet My Tin Foil Hat Beelzebub Shot At Donald Trump - A 20-year-old shooter was “inspired by Joe Biden's fiery rhetoric" is hardly believable. Out of control guns are another thing. @dougporter506 open.substack.com/pub/dougport #Politics

We know factually that Trump had hundreds of classified documents taken out of the White House and moved to his private residence.

We know that he did nothing to get these declassified. All his excuses amount to "I did it, therefore it was legal", despite a dozen ex-presidents who did comply with relevant laws.

We know that he showed some and waved them around to people at his estate while trying to make various points. None of those people went through any kind of vetting process.

“Donald Trump picked J.D. Vance as his running mate because Vance will do what Mike Pence wouldn’t on January 6: bend over backwards to enable Trump and his extreme MAGA agenda, even if it means breaking the law and no matter the harm to the American people.” - Biden-Harris 2024 Chair Jen O’Malley Dillon

Mediocre white men for the Republicans. Vance has about a year and a half in government but he’s a useful yes man with no substance just cruelty. Fuck these guys.
