“But Republican opposition would not have mattered had Senate Democrats been united in favor of Ms. Omarova. Her nomination was ultimately doomed by a lack of support from moderates”
Saule Omarova, a Cornell Law professor whom President Biden picked for a key banking regulator job, is withdrawing from consideration for the post. Bank lobbyists and Republicans painted her as a communist because she was born in the Soviet Union. nyti.ms/33dv9dP

Tell me again where Christ said “use the commemoration of my birth to flex violent weapons for personal political gain”? lol @ all the years Republicans spent on cultural hysteria of society “erasing Christmas and it’s meaning” when they’re doing that fine all on their own

"This is how I learned to stop worrying & love #DontLookUp — it's a savage American political satire & the best since Wag the Dog (also, quoting Jack Handy makes you a genius in my book). In the words of Jason Orleans, McKay times that sh*t perfectly."⭐⭐⭐⭐#StreamIt #Netflix

There was no CBO score needed. No concern about the deficit. No mention of inflation.
$770 Billion to the Pentagon just easily passed the house 363-70. I voted No. It is astounding how quickly Congress moves weapons but we can’t ensure housing, care, and justice for our veterans, nor invest in robust jobs programs for districts like mine.

Huge kudos to Jonah Hill for using his #DontLookUp interview on @JimmyFallon's show to talk about important climate change legislation. You really truly love to see it.

The media treats politicians with such reverence when in reality they have no power at all. They’re just sock puppets for the donors. No politician, including @JoeBiden, is allowed to do anything without the permission of the donors. They’re just place holders for their bosses.

And Washington finds this perfectly normal.
If your family is worth up to $1.4 trillion & leads a brutal monarchy in Saudi Arabia you can order the murder of a Washington Post columnist with a bone saw & get rewarded with $650 million in arms sales to kill poor kids in Yemen because, hey, if we don't China or Russia will.

The Senate just voted down an amendment halting an arms sale to the genocidal Saudi regime over their war crimes in Yemen, despite 64% of Americans supporting it. Profoundly evil.

The senate is definitionally undemocratic and they just voted 67-30 to continue aiding a genocide in Yemen. It's time to abolish it

Same for COVID. Same for climate change.
I know this is not a unique thought but it blows my mind to see the response to school shootings evolve to solely training kids to deal with it as though there’s just nothing else to be done. Healthy, functioning country we got here

Watching these Kellogg workers hold the line going into Christmas is like a superhero movie where the hero is the American dream and the villain is neoliberalism. Please support them.

Today when I was driving to Ana’s school, I passed the funeral home where her body laid. I looked up to see a bald eagle flying above the building. It has been 9 years… and still. Please continue to pray for these precious families. Those we know + those we never hear from.

Really dug #DontLookUp. Clearly throwing a lot at you with the subtlety of an asteroid to the face, but the entire cast is fantastic, it’s very funny (while depressing) and sometimes bluntness is what we unfortunately need.

Senators will soon vote on a weapons sale to Saudi Arabia — as the country bombs Yemen and deprives millions of food, fuel, medicine. Chair @RepJayapal and Whip @Ilhan urge the Senate to block the sale and refuse Saudi impunity for war crimes and starvation of the Yemeni people.
