    The RNC that already happened so far…
    The Ring talking about Doom being;
    “the bodyguard of civilization…defender of civilization…putting his “own life of luxury on the line”.
    In reality locking up children, police shooting unarmed innocent black and brown people because it is Sunday.

      So, he lied under oath to Katie Porter under questioning the other day

    • August 25, 2020 at 12:04 pm

      Congresswoman Katie Porter asked DeJoy who put in place those plans.
      DeJoy said he “did not order major overhaul plans” and that they were in effect before he arrived.
      “If you did not order these actions to be taken, please tell the committee the name of who did.”
      DeJoy: “I DO NOT KNOW.”
      He is the Postmaster General?
      1) Um why didn’t Pinocchio stop the mystery actions, if not the mystery person?
      2) The mystery person if not himself is someone he keeps meeting with: Donald Trump.

      • August 25, 2020 at 12:23 pm

        “I DO NOT KNOW” is the wrong fcuking answer. IF he isn’t lying (which I doubt), the correct answer would be “I don’t know, BUT, I WILL FIND OUT”

        That’s one of the first things we learned in USMC recruit training…

    • August 25, 2020 at 12:15 pm

      DeJoy said he wouldn’t commit to reversing the changes dismantling the Postal Service.
      This won’t be the last sabotage by the Phantom Postal Services KIller (Trump).
      STOP DEJOY-TRUMP ANY POSSIBLE WAY.
      NOW.

    Benen:
    “Our side is working on policy,” Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) declared last night. I wish that were true. It’s not.”
    “…it was a day earlier when his party,
    which has been producing platforms every four years since 1856,
    decided it wouldn’t bother to debate, write, or release a GOP platform in 2020.
    Republicans instead announced it would simply
    “reassert the party’s strong support for President Donald Trump and his administration,
    in lieu of crafting an actual governing vision.
    As the Washington Post’s Catherine Rampell put it yesterday,
    “No promises, no policy stances, nothing. Just a bootlicking, blank-check pledge to support anything Trump decides to do, no matter how erratic or lawless, and a (re)confirmation that the party is nothing more than a cult of personality.”

    Speaker Pelosi speaks with Ayman Mohyeldin (excerpts):
    “They’re doing everything they can: vsuppress the vote with your actions, scare people, intimidate by saying law enforcement will be there, diminish the role of the postal system in all of this. It’s really, actually shameful. Enemies of the state.”

    • August 25, 2020 at 2:09 pm

      Speaker Pelosi:
      “So what they’re doing is really immoral. It’s immoral.
      The President said if we passed a freestanding postal bill he would sign it. We did. Now, he says no. And this is a health issue as well in terms of nearly a hundred percent of the medicine that comes from the VA to our veterans goes through the mail. The list goes on and on.”
      “We passed [Heroes] 101 days ago. Mitch McConnell called for a ‘pause.’”

    “Alexei Navalny:
    Putin critic ‘probably poisoned’ – doctors”
    He “is in intensive care and is still in an artificial coma.
    Mr Navalny is being given an antidote, atropine, the same drug used in the case of ex-KGB agent Sergei Skripal by UK doctors after his poisoning with the nerve agent Novichok in Salisbury in 2018.”
    “Cholinesterase inhibitors block a crucial enzyme which regulates messages from nerves to muscles….
    The enzyme is called acetylcholinesterase. Inhibition of the enzyme interferes with nerve to muscle messaging and muscles are no longer able to contract and relax. They go into a sort of spasm.
    All muscles are affected with the most crucial being those which affect breathing. As breathing is inhibited individuals may become unconscious.”
    –German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called for those behind any poisoning to be identified and held accountable.
    –The UK called on Saturday for a “full and transparent” investigation.
    –And US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden vowed over the weekend that, if elected, he would “stand up to autocrats like Putin”.

    Mr. Jacob Blake was shot in the back 7 times by police after helping to de-escalate a domestic incident.
    He was unarmed and getting back into his car with his 3 children.
    Democratic nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden:
    “This calls for an immediate, full and transparent investigation and the officers must be held accountable.
    These shots pierce the soul of our nation. Jill and I pray for Jacob’s recovery and for his children. Equal justice has not been real for black Americans and so many others. We are at an inflection point. We must dismantle systemic racism. It is the urgent task before us.”

      Maya Wiley speaks with Joy Reid.
      (She is currently senior vice president for Social Justice at The New School and the Henry Cohen Professor of Urban Policy and Management at the Milano School of Policy, Management, and Environment.)
      Reid: “In this case the police officers at this point know that they’re being taped. In this case, at least …according to his fiancé, they knew that their children were in the car. If they won’t not shoot someone in the back seven times on-camera, with all the witnesses…I don’t know what the answer is to police reform at this point.”

    • August 25, 2020 at 3:39 pm

      (Donald Trump Jr shared an unrelated story about Mr. Blake’s family, apparently to justify the shooting.)
      Wiley:
      “The idea that he (Don Jr) would suggest with that video that there’s any justification is of itself shocking. But let’s just make one thing clear. This is a family that in addition to being apparently quite corrupt and certainly hiding their finances and not being transparent. And whose entire campaign management team has been going down for fraud for stealing from the American public, maybe should think twice before they decide the strategy to win office is to tell all of the rest of us to engage essentially in the politics of racial division. This is one country. We need to be one people. And all of us should be devastated by any kind of violence…that takes an unarmed person…and should someone get shot in the back by a blue uniform. Doesn’t matter who you are. Doesn’t matter what color of your skin. And that’s what we need to hear right now…”

    • August 25, 2020 at 3:42 pm

      (Reid shows the lovely Vanity Fair cover:
      “Breonna Taylor, A Beautiful Life” painted by Amy Sherald.)
      Reid: (As an attorney) “Is there any chance that the officers who shot Breonna Taylor and killed her, who busted into her apartment after midnight and shot this woman, are they ever going to be arrested in your view?
      Wiley:
      “You know I can’t answer that Joy, but I’ll tell you the one thing that we desperately need: No more no-knock warrants. That’s why this woman has lost her life. And certainly no more of this unqualified/qualified immunity. Meaning police officers can get away with murder if it just fits what ‘qualified immunity’ allows which is far too much. Social things we can change right now.”
