@Real Music,
Yeah, what are they doing? Not hearing much about other Republican candidates being put up for the next election. We have to watch the one and only Egopublican on the news all the time trying to get back in.

@Real Music,
They are making at least one frightening move that it looks like they may get away with.

1. I’m seeing so many red maps on social media—they are redistricting black voters out of existence.

2. They seem to be geared up to go straight Kanye—openly nuts on TV and doubling down. They are planning to censure the couple of Republicans who condemned the January 6 attack on the capital. That’s a bold nutty position. Even McConnell stepped away from that.

3. Yes, they are not elevating a possible presidential candidate…. because I think they have one.

Judge Jackson’s Friend: GOP Attacks During Confirmation Hearing Were ‘Painful And Sad’

Lisa Fairfax, Antoinette Coakley and Nina Simmons join MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell to discuss
why Republican attacks against Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson were “just a show for no one’s
benefit” and demonstrated that “enough never seems to be enough,” even for the most qualified
Supreme Court nominee in history.

Dallas County Republican mail-in ballots were 'hand duplicated,' Democratic election judge reports
AUSTIN — A report from a Democratic election judge for the March 1 primary indicated every Republican mail-in ballot cast in Dallas County had to be reproduced manually in order to be counted.

Dallas attorney Louis Bedford IV, who was the local Democratic Party’s appointed election judge for Dallas County’s central counting station during the March 1 primary, created a report this week highlighting numerous issues with voting equipment and staffing shortages that he said affected the election.

Bedford’s report outlines several issues that occurred during early voting and on Election Day for the primary. Those included a technical issue with every Republican mail-in ballot that forced election staff to manually enter ballots into voting machines.

Bedford said ballots had to be “hand duplicated by the Central Count staff during the counting process.” That amounted to 2,777 Republican ballots that election staff had to manually enter into voting machines.

Madison Cawthorn called for Fauci's imprisonment and Biden's impeachment while humping Trump's leg



Rep. Madison Cawthorn in a Saturday address targeted Anthony Fauci and President Joe Biden.

Speaking to supporters of former President Donald Trump at a rally in North Carolina, freshman representative Cawthorn promised that Fauci will be jailed and Biden impeached.

"We will embrace the spirit of our Founding Fathers," Cawthorn said. "We will investigate Anthony Fauci and send him to jail for lying to Congress."

Fauci, the nation's topmost COVID-19 expert and the White House chief medical advisor, was a polarizing figure during the Trump administration because the former president would often publicly go against his recommendations to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

Ballot stuffing mars Salt Lake County's GOP nominating convention
Source: Salt Lake Tribune

For Salt Lake County Republicans, warnings of voter fraud came from inside the party on Saturday. The vote to nominate a GOP candidate for Salt Lake County Clerk was marred when a pair of delegates were caught attempting to vote more than once, with one extra vote making it into a ballot box at Saturday’s county nominating convention.

The extra vote did not impact the outcome, as Goud Maragani easily won the nod from delegates over Nancy Lord. After the two cheaters were caught, the remaining delegates voted to expel them from their positions within the party. Republican officials said they planned to press charges, but it’s unclear what laws may have been broken since Saturday’s vote was conducted as part of a private organization and not a governmental entity.

Saturday’s attempted ballot box stuffing at the Republican convention was more election fraud than has been proven in Utah’s entire 2020 election.

The irony of the situation was undeniable, given how tightly the Salt Lake County GOP has embraced former President Donald Trump’s false claims about voter fraud in the 2020 election. It was at the center of Maragani’s successful pitch to delegates and other candidates spoke on the issue when it was their turn to address the convention. Party chair Chris Null broached the topic, teasing a forthcoming report from the party.

Opinion: The emptiness at the heart of Republicans’ midterm campaign

Quote:
Republicans have finally found a coronavirus restriction they love: Title 42, the public health order implemented in March 2020 that allows the government to immediately expel noncitizens attempting to enter the United States instead of detaining them. Since the White House announced it was lifting the order starting in May, Republicans have piled on, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

“It’s an outrageous decision to eliminate Title 42,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.” In the 12-minute interview, McConnell previewed the empty, misleading platform congressional Republicans will run on this year, but also provided Democrats evidence on how best to counter that platform.

What is the Republican Party doing? Banning Books for one.

@bobsal u1553115,
I wonder if the Ugly Duckling is on the list? The whole book could have been about growing gay, whoops, I am not supposed to say "gay."

2020 Banned & Challenged Books

Yep it's banned, along with "To Kill a Mockingbird." on page 6. I imagine there is an updated version somewhere, with a lot more classic books and children's stories pulled from the shelves. Disgusting. I don't even believe in banning favorable Nazi books, much less books concerning racial injustice or kids who are "different" in some way. I identified with the ugly duckling a little bit, I was different in the second grade with hearing aides in a new school.

@revelette1,
The whole idea is ridiculous. I don't know of any books that have been banned over here since Spycatcher which was a bloody farce.

Obviously certain books are unsuitable for children and I don't know of any school that would allow obscene material, but anything aimed at children and deemed suitable for publication would make it.

We had problems with Thatcher banning the 'promotion of homosexuality' in schools back in the 80s.

As if, heterosexuality has been promoted since the year dot, kids aren't gay because of propaganda.

If propaganda was that effective nobody would be gay.

It's not about promoting, it's about accepting, making sure the gay kid isn't picked on, or the kid with two same sex parents isn't marginalised.

@revelette1,
The thing to remember here in the US the photo op and sound byte equal popular contemporary history.. The demagogues get a photo and five word policy statement to crow out in a campaign brochures.

The truth is these bannings always work against themselves. There's never been a banned book that couldn't be found very easily. Never been a banned book I wanted I couldn't find in legitimate venues and at discount.
