https://thehill.com/homenews/house/413427-dems-warn-party-message-lacks-punch Democrats are sounding growing alarms in the final push before the midterm elections that the party lacks the message it needs to combat President Trump and win back Democratic majorities in Congress. “We haven’t had a real message since the last presidential election, so why change it now?” said Democratic strategist Chris Kofinis. “We had no message in 2016. We had no message in between. We have no message going into this election … You have to give people a reason to vote for you, not a reason to vote against someone else. “In terms of a Democratic Party … Continue reading →
I am fully aware that there is an ongoing open thread that should continue to be supported but this deserves its own thread. With all the ongoing investigations involving Trump and because of his erratic behavior things could go off of the rails. This coupled with the likes of neocons Pompeo and Bolton a crisis could be imminent. Bolton threatens Syria over new wmd attack giving a golden opportunity for Isis to stage another fake attack. The State Department is admonishing many different countries and sanctions are being applied nonstop. Aug. 24 (UPI) — The United States said it’s re-evaluating … Continue reading →
Not sure if LD has got his schedule worked out yet. Due to the fact that me and the morning rooster are polar opposites I am publishing this now. I just could not let this pass. If anyone including LD publish an actual open thread I certainly will not be offended. What causes me to post this in the wee hours is that I didn’t want to add it to the ongoing thread where it might be missed. Methinks Andrew Cuomo is about to receive his just rewards.more in the comment section. … Continue reading →

Time after time they keep endorsing inferior candidates despite progressive alternatives. It happened in Illinois. CHICAGO — Rep. Dan Lipinski of Illinois, one of the most conservative Democrats in Congress, narrowly won a primary Tuesday over a progressive newcomer who argued the congressman’s views no longer reflect the Chicago-area district he has represented for seven terms. Marie Newman, who was little-known when she decided to challenge Lipinski for the seat he inherited from his father, had backing from progressive groups as well as Sen. Bernie Sanders, who won Illinois’ 3rd Congressional District by 9 points over Hillary Clinton in the … Continue reading →

There must be other things happening besides the massacre in Gaza.
Today the US opened its embassy in Jerusalem. Where are the White Helmets when you need them? ( sarcasm intended as I have no use for the White Helmets) At least 52 Palestinians were killed on Monday in Gaza and more than 2,410 others wounded as the Israeli army fired live ammunition, tear gas and firebombs at protesters assembled along several points near the fence with Israel. The demonstrations, which coincided with protests against the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem, are part of a weeks-long protest calling for the right of return for Palestinian refugees to the areas … Continue reading →

I like the idea of “specific topic” posts. Consider this to be an avenue for random comments. I will start the conversation below.
There certainly were a number of excellent results during Tuesday’s elections. They question now is “Where do we go from here?” An optimist might say that things look good for the Democrats. I am not so sure about that. It all depends on the interpretation of the results and applying them going forward. The big problem is who actually runs both of those organizations. I will fill things in starting in the comment section. Some things have previously been mentioned but are worth repeating.
The results on Tuesday were good. Unfortunately the Democratic leadership will take the wrong understanding of what really happened. SMH! The People who ran the disaster in 2016 are now taking credit for the results. You will have to view the videos and or links to get what I mean. In the comment section I will add to this. Have at it folks! … Continue reading →
