GOP states passed wave of new voter suppression laws, gerrymandered maps & election subversion bills through simple majority, party-line votes yet Manchin & Sinema said it would be too partisan to protect voting rights with simple majority. SMH motherjones.com/politics/202…

Republicans don’t want you to know this, but they are terrified because they know Wisconsin is one of the best pickup opportunities in the entire country. When I defeat Ron Johnson, I will make sure Mitch McConnell can never become Majority Leader.

Joe Manchin voted for Neil Gorsuch after Mitch McConnell made up non-existent Senate rule to block Merrick Garland 8 months before election then killed filibuster to confirm Gorsuch. So spare us the nonsense about preserving Senate traditions

🚨 🚨 NEW WHITEBOARD: what do we do after yesterday? A ton. Right now. Most of the work we need to do to save democracy doesn’t involve US Senators. It involves every one of us. But we must reframe the battle, then get to work within that new frame. Here’s how:

Stop talking about primarying Senators who aren’t up till 2024. Start talking about what you’re gonna do to defeat the 20 anti-democracy Senators who are up this November.

I just have a sudden urge to register hundreds of thousands of young pro-democracy voters across Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina. Funny how that happens.

Going to bed tonight knowing that there is nothing Donald Trump can do to stop the January 6th Committee from obtaining White House records is a great feeling.

WHY HAS NOBODY THOUGHT OF THIS BEFORE? The Democrats should run on an ANTI-corruption message! (Luckily Molly Jong-Fast thought of it.) newsletters.theatlantic.com/… @TheAtlantic @MollyJongFast

Whether he likes it or not, Biden faces the same problem as Lincoln: He needs to prosecute traitors. If ordinary citizens waged an insurrection, they would go to jail. Trump and his fellow elites must not be an exception. To hell with the critics. @Salon salon.com/2021/12/12/how-abr…

Biden setting a frame for Dems to run on in 2022: 1. We got a lot done on COVID and jobs; we are working to do more. 2. Republicans don't stand for anything; they obstruct because they're intimidated by Trump. Point 2 has been largely missing from @POTUS' messaging in Year One

Maggie Hassan to Cotton: "I never imagined today's Rep. Party would fail to stand up for democracy.. The Rep. Party and the Dem.. Party must unite to stand for freedom, to stand for an accountable democracy-- because without that, the rules of this body do not matter."

'We have created a world where the worst among us are the fastest to get into power.' We need to 'redesign society' to ensure 'better people are drawn to power and more effective at getting it', associate professor of global politics at UCL Dr @brianklaas tells @mrjamesob.

😡 Senator, don’t you dare use the underdog grassroots efforts of activists in Ohio to secure last week’s wins to justify not doing YOUR job to protect democracy. We are hanging on to democracy by a thread—if at all—in state after state. It shouldn’t be this damn close!
REPORTER: [People say] you’re making it so that they’re not going to be able to vote in the next election. MANCHIN: …the government will stand behind them to make sure they have a right to vote…We act like we’re going to obstruct people from voting. That’s not going to happen.

Do you want to IMPLODE the filibuster so the Dems can RAM their voting rights legislation through Congress?

Despite evidence of Trump’s inability to distinguish truth from fiction, his self-image of grandiosity and his fixation on conspiracy theories, mainstream media failed to characterize Trump’s conduct as abnormal. He's crackers but media pretend otherwise washingtonpost.com/opinions/…

This is what happens when Republicans win elections. Their first priority is attacking democracy.
