Kevin McCarthy made a massive strategic error by not seating Members on the @January6thCmte. The Committee expected to get new information, new witnesses & new evidence. They are not rushing this. They are playing it very smart. @Morning_Joe #January6thCommitteeHearings

This! The NRA is awful. Evil. Terrorist organization. But let’s not lead with blaming them and not naming the lawmakers who choose killers over kids. We can’t vote out the NRA. But we can vote out every lawmaker who endangers our kids.
BUT (and this is the kicker) the member of Congress is still the sole person to cast a vote on legislation. If they had any good conscience or respect for their constituents, they could vote AGAINST the NRA. Even if they’ve taken campaign contributions.

This is unacceptable…this can’t be allowed.
Breaking: in a July 4th decision a judge in West Virginia has ruled against communities that sued drug distributors who shipped vast quantities of opioids to some of the hardest hit communities in the US. No award of funding to abate the #opioidcrisis. Developing... @npr

Please stop blaming the NRA for mass shootings.🧵The NRA may fund candidates but the NRA does not have a vote in Congress. *ELECTED* Republican members of Congress do. And they are keep voting against our kids and voting for their killers. 1/3

So, question for the @GOP who fought raising the age to 21. Still ok with that decision? No more bullshit. Raise the age to 21. Admit that you were wrong and get back to it ASAP!!!

The indisputable problem still remains: civilians can purchase high-powered assault rifles. This must stop.

My team at @UNUMKenBurns brought @AVindman & @YVindman back to Brighton Beach to reflect on what the Statue of Liberty symbolizes and how our responses to humanitarian crises have fallen short of the ideals it represents. Thanks to the @NYTOpinion for partnering with us on this.
“Today, America is faced with yet another opportunity to live up to its creed,” says Alexander Vindman. “How we treat refugees is one of the greatest tests of our American experiment.” nyti.ms/3bREf4h

How does that Brooks & Dunn song go … “Only In America” …
A church. A country music concert. A grocery store. A night club. A synagogue. A school. A parade. It doesn’t have to be this way. #IndependenceDay #4thOfJuly

This isn’t hard Scott. His wife secretly tried to overturn an election and wanted the President-elect and his family sent to Gitmo. He then didn’t refuse himself from any election-related or Trump-related cases and we still don’t know if he agreed with his wife’s election views.
“Justice?” For what? Having a different opinion? Chilling.
