1. As a former career prosecutor, including 6 years as an Army JAG, this makes me sick. Please bear with me as this will take a minute: Our military criminal justice system protects the rights of soldiers accused of crimes as well as, if not better then, many civilian systems...

White Supremacists get charged w hate crimes. Muslims get charged w terrorism. This is a HUGE difference. Hate crimes are underreported, deprioritized, + aren’t treated as seriously as domestic terror charges. Yet in the US, Neo-Nazi violence far outnumbers Islamic extremism.

Think about what Trump is saying he wants: An Army that's trained for killing, not for policing, marching down your street to kick down doors and haul people off to camps for deportation? Seems too ridiculous to worry about. But some of the ridiculous things he says come true.

Do others have the sense that some kind of dam has broken on the Trumpist Right? Outright contempt for the rule of law, cavalier recklessness in rhetoric and unabashed extremism in policy have become more prevalent and normalized than before. Trumpism has begun to outpace Trump.

I won’t be dragged into this idea that abortion is only ok under tragic circumstances. It’s a choice for each person to make for themselves. I’m a mother of soon-to-be-4. I’m raising 2 kids born to someone else. This shit is complicated & everyone needs to tend their own garden.

In the late 70’s, the religious right only picked abortion as their new fight because it had lost their fight for segregation. It was never about morality. It was always about control. ‘The Real Origins of the Religious Right’- ⁦

How much clearer does their agenda have to be? Are we waiting for them to demote black people down to 3/5 status again?

This seems worrisome. An American official is now leaking to the NYT that the intelligence does *not* merit the current war planning against Iran, and says the Trump administration is actively working to draw Iran into war:

I remember talking to folks that I liked and respected who, after the 2016 election, were not that alarmed. Everyone is alarmed now.

We're at the point where they're denying the will of the people, eradicating checks and balances, committing offenses that are literally against the law. Nadler says we're in a constitutional crisis and then... what? What's the fucking plan? Just stare into the abyss, oh well?

Lindsey Graham to Trump supporters before the election: "I don't know who you are and I don't know why you like this guy....he's a race baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot. He doesn't represent my party..." What happened ?

ALL hands on deck: they are coming for Roe! College students and Millennials - you are one justice away from losing the right to control your body and have an abortion. Or Kavanaugh might be that vote. You need to get serious about voting and engaged in resisting!

In America, the assumption is you have a warrant *somewhere* if you’re a black man...the criminalization of black men has deadly consequences.
