      LP, now it is so very important that every voter in North Carolina KNOWS this decision so they cannot be fooled at the polls and know their rights. If a poll worker demands an ID, they have to fight back and call the designated Dem attorney on call. I feel certain the Hillary campaign will have a ‘go to’ legal support person in every county, as they do in PA.

      Forgive me. But what part of REPUBLICAN OPS don’t we get?
      The KOCH brothers spend a lot of time and trouble effing up the Democratic vote.
      They messed with the Primaries and the ugliness continues.

    “After FaceTiming with the presidential candidate earlier this week, Pusha T has started selling pro-Hillary Clinton “Delete Your Account” t-shirts in his online merch store. The shirts, which are based on the now-infamous tweet that she/some social media intern directed at Donald Trump last month, have the hashtag #IMWITHHER on the back. Proceeds from the sales of the shirt will go towards Re-Imagine Justice. “…“SMH at the idea of undoing Obama’s legacy w/ a vote for this BUFFOON,” Pusha said in a tweet.”

    I feel so bad for Malia having to live in a bubble. She can’t even go to a freaking concert without some hater turning it into an indictment on her or her parents. I guess they thought she was a delegate to the DEM convention and should have been Philly. It’s trending on Twitter.

      If the country is purportedly heading in the wrong direction, it’s due to the straight up thuggery the GOP has been perpetrating at federal, and state level for years and Dems not voting in EVERY election. #NotDifficultToConnectTheDots

    I saw Steve Kornacki and Todd twisting themselves in knots with the electoral vote map finding a pathway for Trump to win. Remember how they started the ” Obama need to win the white working class vote”? They are starting the same meme for HRC. They cannot help themselves.

    Top US trade official: Rejecting the TPP would hand China the ‘keys to the castle’ on globalization

    “LIMA (Reuters) – Failure to ratify the U.S.-led sweeping trade pact TPP would hand China “the keys to the castle” on globalization and do nothing to solve the real problems underlying American anxiety over jobs, the top U.S. trade official said Thursday. ”

    Good news for Kansas voters


    A Shawnee County District Court judge ruled Friday afternoon that the votes of 17,500 people whose registrations had been questioned will be counted in Tuesday’s primary.

    The American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit against Secretary of State Kris Kobach on behalf of three Kansas voters who were told they could vote in federal elections, but that their votes in state and local elections would not be counted.

    Many of the voters in question registered under the federal “motor voter law.” Though they satisfied federal voting laws when they registered at motor vehicle offices, they did not provide proof of citizenship like a U.S. passport or a birth certificate. Under a 2013 Kansas law, a new voter must show proof of citizenship to vote in an election.

    The elections director with the secretary of state’s office estimated earlier this month that more than 17,000 voters could be affected by the requirement. That number could grow to 50,000 around the time of November’s general election.

    Kobach is the person behind the awful SB 1070 in AZ. He needs to be disbarred

        No, I’m convinced he is on the ultimate ego trip, inhaling all the attention EVERYONE gives him, hate or love. Narcissists are junkies for attention. He does NOT want to be president to govern….this ape wants to be king of the world. Now, I will try to get past this weekend without sight or sound of this throwback. Peace !!

    By all accounts, Tim Kaine is the epitome of an ally. A White man who’s shed a lot of privilege to commune with and serve people of color.

    Former Fox News Booker Says She Was Sexually Harassed and ‘Psychologically Tortured’ by Roger Ailes for More Than 20 Years
    By Gabriel Sherman

    The morning after Fox News chief Roger Ailes resigned, the cable network’s former director of booking placed a call to the New York law firm hired by 21st Century Fox to investigate sexual-harassment allegations against Ailes. Laurie Luhn told the lawyers at Paul, Weiss that she had been harassed by Ailes for more than 20 years, that executives at Fox News had known about it and helped cover it up, and that it had ruined her life. “It was psychological torture,” she later told me.

    So far, most of the women who have spoken publicly about harassment by Ailes in the wake of Gretchen Carlson’s lawsuit had said no to Ailes’s sexual advances. They ran out of hotel rooms, they pulled away from embraces, they complained or avoided or generally resisted, even when it hurt their careers. This is the account of a woman who chose to go along with what Roger Ailes wanted — because he was powerful, because she thought he could help her advance her career, because she was professionally adrift and emotionally unmoored.

        You’re right. They’re hopeless. Still a poignant moment for the rest of us with souls who care about what that cretin might do to this country. Maybe a few folks who haven’t taken this election or even their citizenship seriously until now were touched by them and would be moved to act – register, volunteer, organize, vote, run for office.
