    Joy Reid:
    “Trump…using that trumped up charge to justify what in any other country, particularly an authoritarian one,
    would be called the secret police only responsive to the dear leader…this is a new distraction… and also a campaign ploy intended to stoke irrational fears of lawlessness among white suburban voters ahead of the November election.”

      Former AG Eric Holder, 82nd Attorney General of the United States, Chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee talks to Joy Reid:
      Holder:
      “I would say that with regard to the use of these forces, you’re right.
      In the past my sister-in-law was escorted into the University of Alabama as a result of federal forces directed by President John Kennedy. That’s the way in which these forces should appropriately be used.
      To deploy these forces without any kind of co-ordination with local authorities, without any kind of indication that there is a request by local authorities for this to be done, I think puts us in a very dangerous place. You can’t have an administration in Washington D.C. using federal resources, federal forces, to simply enforce the law in states or in cities where it thinks it wants to project force. Especially this administration that is making determinations based on things other than the needs of those local communities. And so I think that Mayor Lightfoot, when she said that she’ll accept help if it’s done in an appropriate way, but if it’s not, she will fight the deployment of those forces. I think that’s an appropriate thing for a mayor to do.”

      Reid: “You sort of have to use your lurid imagination to imagine what might someone in an autocratic country do…unfortunately he has slid out of the realm of what happens in democracy. Trump tweeted: “Mail-in voting…will lead to the most corrupt election in our nation’s history” with the hashtag “rigged election”. He keeps on talking about mail-in voting potentially being the seeds of a rigged election.”
      Quote fromJohn Heilemann:
      “He is talking about sending these unmarked paramilitary guards to places with blue states with very blue cities run by democratic mayors. I think we should all take very seriously the prospect that this, as they say, a dress rehearsal, a trial run, for first an attempt at voter intimidation on election. Are these unmarked paramilitary units going to be doing ‘security’ at the polls in battleground states? I think that’s a question we’d like to have answered.”

    • July 22, 2020 at 11:56 am

      Reid: “Are you concerned about that? That these paramilitary forces will be used to suppress the vote using intimidation and fear?”
      Holder:
      “If you’d asked me that question about any other president, I would say “of course not”.
      That’s a script from a very bad movie. But this administration’s president has demonstrated that they have a capacity to go lower than we can even possibly imagine. So yes I think we have to be concerned about that. His attempt to talk about mail-in voting and “all the fraud” associated with it is factually incorrect. He is just trying to set up a situation where he has the ability to delegitimize a vote that he might lose. If he loses, and I expect that he will, then we have to be prepared for what he is about to do in the aftermath of such a loss. And what he’ll do for the country between the election and the inauguration of the next president. We have to be prepared for things that this nation has never faced before. And unfortunately, it could involved the use of these forces. Who knows what he’ll do and what the people who are part of his administration will support him in doing?”

    • July 22, 2020 at 11:58 am

      Reid: “Donald Trump has joked about canceling the election. He has signed a memo attempting to exclude immigrants from the Census, which is completely averse to the Constitution. He’s done other things that make one wonder whether he will actually leave if he loses the election. Are you concerned that even if he loses, will attempt to remain in office?”
      Holder:
      “There are these nightmare scenarios and we can wind them out. But I don’t think that should take us away from what our focus has to be. He’s got to be beat. And he has to be beaten badly. People need to get out and vote. We need to fight for giving people the ability to vote at home. People call it vote by mail. I like to call it Vote At Home. For people who want to get to the polls, we have to make sure that they have a healthy environment so that poll workers and voters are going to be safe there as well. And make sure that people don’t have to decide between keeping themselves healthy and engaging in their civic responsibility. That’s the primary thing we have to focus on. I think we can handle anything he might try to do after a devastating loss.”

    “Anyone, including federal law enforcement, who unlawfully assaults and kidnaps people will face criminal charges from my office,” said the district attorney, Larry Krasner. “At trial, they will face a Philadelphia jury.”

      “Well I’m going to do something, that I can tell you. Because we’re not going to let New York and Chicago and Philadelphia and Detroit and all of these – Oakland is a mess – we’re not going to let this happen in our country. All run by liberal democrats. For Portland they’ve done a fantastic job. They’ve been there 3 days and they really have done a fantastic job in a very short period of time. No problem. They grab them, a lot of people in jail. These are anarchists, these are not protestors.” (signed, Donald Bleach)

    Don’t have a link to the latest c/o the University of Washington research group,
    upon whom the White House has been relying to make their ‘happy covid predictions’.
    However Rachel Maddow received a publicly released non-peer evaluated copy of their latest projections.
    = 3 different projections for how many Americans will die by the end of 2020.
    Ready?
    Here t’is…
    1)
    If 95% of the U.S. wear masks the death toll by the end of 2020:
    = 175,000 to 123,000 dead.
    2)
    If mask wearing is not imposed but states reimpose social distancing the death toll by the end of 2020:
    = 234,000 to 398,000 dead.
    3)
    If states keep on opening up (the mandates easing scenario) the death toll by the end of 2020:
    = Low end 288,000 dead.
    = High end 650,000 dead.

  18. July 22, 2020 at 2:40 pm

    Now that we’re dying at a rate of 1,000 a day (per John Hopkins):
    Donald Bleach said yesterday “I think we’ve really started it up successfully…it will disappear.”

      I vividly remember the Tonton Macoutes seeing as Haiti is about 6oo miles away from Miami and we had a Haitian community the grew in size and political power. Where is the states rights crowd, nowhere to be seen. During the Obama administration you couldn’t walk ten feet without tripping over one the these motherfuckers. And now when states are actually being threatened by the federal government, the states rights crew is nowhere to be found.

    Call to ACTION:

    No one will be voting on 3 Nov if what is now an absolutely obvious plan to use the entire Hitler/Stalin playbook to establish a brutal authoritarian regime in the USA isn’t confronted with more than tweets, videos, tiktoks, and other forms of mockery and ‘stern’ rhetoric.

    Trump has ZERO intention of exiting the “presidency” and he has a deeply entrenched set of co-conspirators and goons to assist him in doing what has happened countless times in recorded history.

    ZERO.

      She shouldn’t have even made it on to the plane. Why wouldn’t they have stopped her at the boarding gate?

      Do these Karens wear the masks long enough to board plans, enter stores, etc. to gain access and then take them off to cause a scene?

        What gets me is she’s so dead inside that instead of wearing a mask, she gave up her seat, the cost of her ticket, her travel plans, etc. Stupid is as stupid does.

    “At the end of the day, we want the same thing. We want people to be safe. We want to stop the spread of COVID-19. And it certainly doesn’t help when we’re having to fight one another.”

    Kemp’s office said Thursday that the conversation was “productive” but declined further comment.

    Bottoms had previously said she was prepared for a lengthy legal battle to defend the city’s order…And this week, the city was joined by the Georgia Municipal Association, which filed court papers that accused Kemp of attempting to “usurp local control and Home Rule authority” by seeking to block cities from taking additional steps. Atlanta is among more than a dozen Georgia cities with mask mandates, but the only to also institute “phase one” restrictions.

    Trump’s campaign is locked in a battle with the biggest US cellphone carriers over an effort to blast millions of cell users with often annoying texts coaxing them to contribute or vote.

    The showdown got serious at the start of July when Trump’s team sent a blast of texts to people who hadn’t signed up for them.

    A third-party firm hired to screen such messages for the major cellphone companies blocked the texts.

    The cellphone companies viewed the texts as a possible violation of federal anti-robocall laws and Federal Communications Commission rules that come with hefty fines, the two Republicans told Insider.

    The Trump campaign countered that the cellphone companies were stifling its ability to reach voters. It said the texts did not violate a 1991 law, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which set strict limits on telemarketing and robocalling and formed the basis of anti-spamming measures ruled on by the FCC.
