    This excellent news explains why the GQP is working so hard to suppress votes.

    Republicans Have To Cheat In Order To Win:
    Fmr AG Eric Holder, Chair of Democratic Redistricting Committee,
    On Gerrymandering

      Yes I agree, but Dems need to vote to win also. Here in California Dems outnumber republicans 2:1 yet with the Recall of Newsom the polls are tied. A lot of Dems don’t even know that there is a recall. That is what repugs count on… low Dem voter turn out for these recalls, and low voter turn out for the midterm elections.

        Carla I received my ballot yesterday and mailed it today. I pray that Gov. Newsome remains in office.

        In my circle of friends and acquaintances (Northern and Southern California), it’s a constant topic. We are all Fired Up and doing our Civic Duty. Even my caregiver’s family and friends (Latin American folks) are involved. I’m hopeful that we California Dems are participating because we know what the alternative can be. I’ve also received phone bank calls and text messages in support of Gov Newsom.

        Lots of my friends and family here in CA have either voted NO already (like me) or are going to as soon as they receive their ballots, or have a free moment (like my hubby). I think more people are aware than is being reported.

      DESPOTISM

      Trump GOP:
      imo…GOPQ reminds me of e.g. late Mayan rulers drove people to build some of the most spectacular pyramids and palaces as their power waned. Bully autocrats trying to make themselves look bigger with more and more show, getting louder, the minority using power to make themselves look bigger, increasingly cruel, more irresponsible, in a last gasp of despotism.

    Americans at home tap every resource to help colleagues escape Afghanistan exodus gridlock

    “Rachel Maddow tells the harrowing story of Maj. Thomas Schueman’s desperate efforts,
    drawing on a wide network, to help his Afghan interpreter “Zak” and his wife and four small children escape Afghanistan and certain retribution from the Taliban for his assistance to U.S. Marines.”

    • August 19, 2021 at 1:08 pm

      About this blessed photo: “but he knew they were safe because they were with the marines.”

      After the most excruciating, unimaginable series of events:
      “Major Schueman shared this picture of Zak and his family on their way to the airport after meeting up with that air force captain. As of this morning he said he didn`t know when they would make it on a plane or what their final destination would be but he knew they were safe because they were with the marines.
      And then look. One last picture today. Posted nine hours ago. The caption on this one was two words. Wheels up.”

      —-Today every now and again i break down over all of this.

    “Times Reporter Escapes Taliban After 7 Months”
    June 2009: (https://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/21/world/asia/21taliban.html)

    Rachel Maddow:
    “David Rohde was a reporter for “The New York Times`
    when he and two Afghan colleagues were kidnapped by the Taliban in Afghanistan while on a reporting trip in 2008. They were held hostage together for over seven months before they made an escape that is almost too daring and too unlikely to be believed. They got out.

    David survived in part because his Afghan colleagues saved his life and got him out.
    If anybody can help us understand the situation these journalists and staff and their families finds themselves in tonight, it is David Rohde, who has been engaged in his own effort to try to get his former colleagues and their families out to safety right now.”

    Fact check the hell out of everything

    • August 19, 2021 at 2:11 pm

      See real screenshots per the Rachel Maddow video up above.
      Video is headed up with the photo of the young family in a car. The Kabul airport is pure hell on wheels.
      People look like millions of tiny specks in all the turbulence. Making a connection with Zak’s family was basically an impossible feat, lucky series of events, thanks only to determined Major Schueman who kept trying to connect with every kind of military personnel. This is just one family of untold many.

    Leader Schumer:
    “Let me be clear,
    Republicans refusing to support anything on voting rights is not an excuse for Democrats to do nothing.”

        Yes, I can believe that fair and balanced voices have been barred because the media wants to keep the “hair on fire” narrative going for as long as possible. It’s up to us, the public to push back via social media with supporting material.

    btw,
    Lawrence O’Donnell has emphasized this week the impossibility of exiting war without chaos.
    That so far the logistics of ending a modern war has never been mastered,
    and probably never will.
