I have a hard time seeing this succeeding.

They might have something on specific individuals…but dissolving an entire organization, made up of everyday people in the population?

That would set an extremely dangerous precedent…not that I’m shocked to see them trying to set such a precedent.

“Vulnerable” Rashida Tlaib CRUSHES Primary Opponent…


Date: August 06, 2020

01) “Vulnerable” Rashida Tlaib CRUSHES Primary Opponent


“Rashida Tlaib has won re-election!

DETROITERS PUT Rashida Tlaib in a strong position for reelection in Michigan’s 13th Congressional District on Tuesday night, as she beat back a rematch from Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones in the Democratic primary. While it could be weeks before a final vote count is known, Tlaib’s margin with most precincts reporting was 66 percent to 34 percent of the vote on Wednesday morning.

Tlaib’s seat was considered the most vulnerable among members of the so-called Squad, as the congresswoman faced off against a more or less unified Detroit political establishment and the ire of President Donald Trump. Tlaib’s presumed win comes alongside a host of down-ballot wins by progressives, including Karen McDonald for Oakland County prosecutor. Michigan progressives, crushed by the 2018 defeat of Abdul El-Sayed and the 2020 defeat of Bernie Sanders in the state’s critical March primary, could be seeing a revival of sorts.

Trump’s NEW Political Foes: Moms, Dads, and Veterans…


Date: August 05, 2020

01) Trump’s NEW Political Foes: Moms, Dads, and Veterans


“Trump is attacking America’s moms, dads, and veterans.

President Donald Trump is desperately trying to create a fight between federal agents dressed as American soldiers and protesters in many cities in the United States.

In Portland, in particular, a group of veterans and a group of moms and leaf-blowing dads helped work as protectors of the protesters. It created a PR disaster for the president, but he has doubled down, calling veterans “anarchists against our country” and the wall of moms a “scam.”
