    Glenn Kirschner: I believe Donald Trump must be indicted to save our democracy


    When it comes to the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol and the attempt to subvert our democracy the wheels of justice are apparently turning. In the two years since the insurrection, the DOJ has made more than 950 arrests. Now critical convictions are being handed down.

      I agree with Glenn. Realize the wheels of justice move slowly. However, this is way past ridiculous. The DOJ can go all over the country for the low hanging fruit, but can’t walk across the street to get the people in Congress we all know where involved……and then there’s Trump. Never been held accountable for anything he has done. #enough

        Yes, hi tnmtngirl1. If we are to have an America worth living in, Trump must be brought to justice, convicted and serve his punishment. Same for his associates, especially those in Congress who funded and organized the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol.

        All must be removed from public office and may we never meet again.

    DeSantis blocking AP African-American Studies class

    Student slams DeSantis admin’s ‘blatant racism’ for blocking AP African-American studies class, may sue

    Civil rights attorney Ben Crump warned Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday that he will sue his administration if it continues to block an AP course on African-American studies from being taught in the state’s high schools. DeSantis rejected the program saying the course “significantly lacks educational value.” During the lawsuit announcement, Crump was joined by three high school students who would be the lead plaintiffs. Elijah Edwards, one of these three high school students, and Florida St. Sen. Shevrin Jones, join Joy Reid to discuss.

      Colin Kaepernick documentary.

      Colin Kaepernick’s new doc destroys one of Kevin McCarthy’s talking points
      The former San Francisco 49ers star is about to drop a documentary about police violence and corruption in McCarthy’s district.

      “His latest statement — a new documentary he’s executive produced for Hulu — takes aim at a familiar target: state-sanctioned violence police and corruption. The project is set in Bakersfield, California, and includes another high-profile foe: new House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.”

      Killing County,” set to debut Feb. 3, highlights the 2013 police shooting of Jorge Ramirez, Jr. in Bakersfield, which is part of McCarthy’s district. Ramirez was shot and killed by Bakersfield police. Authorities said at one point the shooting was part of a botched police informant operation, but many details remain unclear. The city reportedly later reached a settlement with Ramirez’s family for $400,000, but no official has yet been punished for Ramirez’s death.

      The filmmakers investigate what they say is a the raft of police violence in Bakersfield– in particular, gun violence — that’s turned Bakersfield and the surrounding Kern County into one of the nation’s most violent regions over the last decade.”

This year, crypto prices have tumbled and one of the most valued exchanges, FTX, collapsed in a cloud of alleged fraud and federal indictments….

    “I am a historian of political atrocity, and for me personally number 1 — defeating an ongoing genocidal project — would be more than enough reason to want Ukrainian victory. But every single one of the other fourteen is hugely significant. Each presents the kind of opportunity that generations of policy planners wish for, but almost never get. Much has been done, we have not yet seen and seized the moment.

    This is a once-in-lifetime conjuncture, not to be wasted. The Ukrainians have given us a chance to turn this century around, a chance for freedom and security that we could not have achieved by our own efforts, no matter who we happen to be. All we have to do is help them win.”
