Just when you think American politics hasn’t gone insane enough, Montana steps in and gives you a Republican Congressional candidate literally committing assault against a reporter on the eve of the election.
If Trump leaves office early by impeachment, resignation or for any other reason people are going to miss him. I mean as bad as he is he is at least entertaining. Mike Pence will be competent but boring like that holier than thou Baptist next door who gives out religious tracts instead of candy to the kids on Halloween.
Elizabeth Warren was denied her right to speak on the Senate floor last night when she tried to read a letter written by Coretta Scott King.
The letter was written by Martin Luther King’s widow when Senator Jeff Sessions was nominated to be a judge in the 80’s. It pleaded that he not be allowed to come to power I this way because of all his racist actions and beliefs.
The letter was not allowed to be read in the Senate then and it’s not being allowed now.
Republicans sited a rule that says, basically, that Senators can’t insult each other on the floor. This is ridiculous though as Senator Warren wasn’t insulting him so much as raising concerns about his nomination.
How can we vet nominees if we can’t question negative aspects of them?
The GOP is trying to silence us and bully us into compliance. Do not allow this.
I’ve included a copy of Mrs. King’s letter.
Maybe they can silence Senator Warren on the floor… But they cannot silence a chorus of resistance.
The Nixon Administration admits its policies were meant to attack Blacks and anti-war people, so they did what was necessary including arresting their leaders, raiding their homes and more. [From the film “13th”]
