    Morning everyone. I’m so sad about the loss of this amazing man. At such an early age. So quietly. I had no idea of his battle with cancer. It was a gut punch last night. 2020 can fuck off…

    Good Morning…TOD

    The Never Trumpers and anti-Trump Republicans ..want to tell Biden how to handle his campaign….namely Steve Smith and Michael Steele….Michael Steele who brought us the anti-Pelosi campaign 2010…and Steve Smith who brought us Sarah Palin in 2008…

    They want Biden/Harris to go to WI to tell blk folks to chill…that the demonstrations are giving white folks a pass to vote their racist heart…to vote for Trump…never mind that it is the violence of shooting blk folks that have sparked outrage….i do not think that the Biden folks will do this…using the shooting as a backdrop for his Pres campaign is not a good look…

    however if the Never Trumpers…wnat to hold a press conference…they can address those white folks themselves…yeahhh…i like that idea much better…

    #NeverTrumpers need to stay in their lane…

      You are so right! Let Joe so his thing.

    • August 29, 2020 at 10:50 am

      AMEN.

      They did this to PBO all the time, too. Tried to make him the lightening rod in every volatile situation. VP Biden and Kamala are too smart for that.

      True! Michael Steele has no creditably in the black community, only white folks listen and believe what he says as gospel.

      Have no fear, Biden/Harris will not be taking any advice from those two. Hahahaha!

    Oh my. Reading all the wonderful tweets and praise for a young And prolific actor dying a premature death, appreciation for his work and his ability to bring people to life rises above the everyday. My heart is broken for his family and all the people who admired him. In the midst of his own life challenges he rose above. Rest in love and let your life be a shining star 🌟 for those who struggle.

    Oh Nerdy, you touched all the right notes with this one! 💔🖤
    I have seen every one of his movies and have a DVD of Black Panther that I can’t play because it’s Blu Ray 🤣

    I have been in shock since hearing the news last night of his transition, but I’m grateful that he shared his light with us.

    He is sitting at God’s feet in perfect peace now.
    Thank you Chadwick ⭐️

    I have really admired Chadwick Boseman, but I really didn’t know the extent of his talent and his person until now. My heart just breaks. So many tears. Why do the good die young? And Donald Trump still lives? As an old white lady, I feel overwhelmed with sorry and I know I am on the fringe. I am so scared for our country. I have to work on my strength to fight more between now and November. We can’t have Trump win. Sending love, strength and power to everyone.

      Marilyn, you have the strength. I know you and I know you have the heart and the strength. Just think of us all together in DC and draw strength from that. We were black, white, young, old, from the USA and outside of the USA yet we were one body of friends who love PBO and FLOTUS.

      Every arena into a polling location:
      “We stand ready to support the NBPA’s and NBA’s effort
      to convert every NBA arena possible into [a] polling location for this fall’s election.
      More Than A Vote has been laser-focused on this for months — creating new opportunities in cities like Atlanta, Cleveland, Detroit, and Los Angeles among others — and welcomes the comprehensive effort to provide a safe in-person voting option for our communities during this pandemic that is disproportionately killing Black people…
      We know that voting will not end our pain.
      Voting cannot bring back those killed by the police officers sworn to protect us.
      Voting cannot erase the scars of slavery and segregation.
      It cannot change our history, but it can change our future.
      “If it couldn’t, those in power wouldn’t be trying so hard to take the right to vote away from us.
      They wouldn’t be trying so hard to erect barriers to the ballot box.”
      (Statement by James’ More Than a Vote following the league announcement and plans to effect change.)

      To my Black friends & neighbors: Trump is lying to you. Look at his policies. He took a thriving economy handed to him by President Obama & ran it into the ground. Whatever he claims to have done for the Black community is simply not true.

    For Louis DeJoy’s “Candidacy As Postmaster General.””
    “The appointment of Mr. Louis DeJoy as Postmaster General was highly irregular and we are concerned that his candidacy may have been influenced by political motivations…why Mr. DeJoy was considered, given that he apparently was not one of the candidates recommended by the firm contracted to make such recommendations, and did not undergo a background check as was urged by then Inspector General and Vice Chairman of the USPS Board of Governors David Williams.”

  38. August 29, 2020 at 4:29 pm

    From the conversation between Ta-NeHesi Coates and Ezra Klein..

    Coates>>
    It is pretty clear that the war-making part of being head of state was the part that most appeals to Donald Trump.

    What does this mean for the election? It may be true that Donald Trump will win. Maybe this will lead to some sort of white backlash that ultimately helps him. I can’t really call that. But what I will say is this is a massive denial of legitimacy. Donald Trump may win the election in November, but he will be a ruler and not a president.

    I think that those things need to be distinguished. When you’re calling out the military to repress protests that are in cities across the country, not just in ghettos and in hoods, all you have is force at that point. Most likely if he wins, he’ll be someone who won with a minority of the vote two times, which will be a first in American history. And violence will be the tool by which he rules. I think it’s a very different situation to be in.

      Reading from another site.. comments included calling the intel agencies of our allies ( such as they are) into Congress to brief the House and Senate.. whereby showing everyone that this administration of traitors is trying to keep this all from Congress and the public. Shame him out loud and show his devious plans to the country! I’m other words, call his bluff
