If saving the USA and Democracy is polarizing then we already got a big problem.
.@MehdiRHasan calls out the Biden administration for not supporting expanding the Supreme Court. "Adjusting the number of justices isn't polarizing... what's radical is what this current court has been doing this entire term."

MBS [as the crown prince is known] is not the ruler of Saudi Arabia and the US should not recognise him as head of state. Doing so would grant him an authority and legitimacy he certainly does not deserve and hopefully will never receive. theguardian.com/world/2022/j…

The WH made a good chart when this happened earlier in the year; might be interesting to update it.

But I guess it’s not surprising that you think oil and gas companies using market power to reap record profits at the expense of the American people is the way our economy is supposed to work.

Sorry Jeff, the misdirect is yours. Your billionaire Political Capitalism is toxic. You take without giving back in kind and have your hands all over the levers of government. Time for you to pay some taxes, brother.
Oil prices have dropped by about $15 over the past month, but prices at the pump have barely come down. That’s not “basic market dynamics.” It’s a market that is failing the American consumer.

War profiteering. The dark underside of Political Capitalism; when an economic system becomes a system of government. Look it up. Want to end the division of our country? Go after the wealth gap.
My message to the companies running gas stations and setting prices at the pump is simple: this is a time of war and global peril. Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product. And do it now.

Abortion will always be necessary health care whether it’s legal or not. Every person should have the autonomy to make decisions about their body, family, and reproductive care without restriction. Because it’s personal. #ThisIsPersonal #BansOffOurBodies reprojusticenow.us

It’s amazing to see a huge company like IKEA entering the solar energy realm. This is a huge step in making solar panels more accessible to families and regions that need them most, all while reducing our carbon footprint. curbed.com/2022/05/ikea-sola…

“‘It has taken 232 years and 115 prior appointments for a Black woman to be selected to serve on the Supreme Court of the United States,’ Jackson said after Congress confirmed her appointment in April. ‘But we’ve made it. We’ve made it. All of us.’”
BREAKING: Ketanji Brown Jackson has been sworn in as an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, marking the first time in American history that a Black woman has sat on the nation’s highest judicial body. huffpost.com/entry/ketanji-b…

Cops that I have known very well call lying under oath “Testa-lying.” It’s more common than you might think.
Tony Ornato lied about me too. During the protests at Lafayette sq in 2020, I told Mark Meadows & Ornato they needed to warn press staged there before clearing the square. Meadows replied: “we aren’t doing that.” Tony later lied &said the exchange never happened. He knows it did.

BREAKING: New York leads the nation on #climate by denying a Bitcoin mining gas-fired power plant, which would have had devastating GHG emissions. Thank you @GovKathyHochul, @BasilSeggos, & @NYSDEC for your leadership and putting people and the planet first! #NYActsOnClimate
BREAKING: @NYSDEC has denied Greenidge Generation’s application to renew its Title V air permit as inconsistent with the state’s climate law. Burning fossil fuels to power crypto mining tripled facility emissions. New York continues to lead on climate. dec.ny.gov/permits/123728.ht…

The Supreme Court has become a political tool for the extremist, Fascist faction of the GOP. Gun violence, subjugation of women, climate catastrophe, and political capitalism is their brand. We are facing an attack from within. We must revolt.
