6/8-9 News Roundup and Open Thread The Progressive Wing Posted on June 8, 2022 by jcityboneJune 8, 2022 San Franciscans recall progressive Chesa Boudin from office
Recall elections are being turned into a tool by the right because they are easier to win than a regular election
In better election news, Katie Porter is leading with 51% of the vote over her Republican primary challengers, which indicates that she is in the driver’s seat for the general election. Karen Bass has advanced to the general election in LA against billionaire conservative Dem Rick Caruso who spent millions of his money on the election, outspending Bass 25-1. Right now it’s Caruso leading 42-37 but there’s tons more votes to count in a mail in state.
Abby Finkhauser lost by 10 points in her primary for senator in Iowa.
No surprise on Porter. 🙂
Yeah they’re a “News” station. What a joke.
We all know FN is mainly propaganda, thus, I’m not surprised they are concerned with ratings. This probably would not bode well for the network. Not defending them, but I also think the hearings will do zero for the Dems when it comes to the midterms. FN is also taking that bet. Benghazi helped the GOP, despite Clinton’s strong testimony in the many hearings.
Big deal, it a muslim or anyone else for that matter doent want that phrase on a gun a Dremel tool will erase all of that with a little grinding and paint. Why do they have war and peace on it as most of these nut jobs dont want peace as thier penile extension would have no use then.
What if all those repeated shots are about securing the peace? I’m more than a bit confused by this, and I’m not caught up in all that. Religion claims to be all about peace, while it often resorts to war. Maybe some need the rationalization to start totin’ arms for Jesus.
If you ask me it’s all about the crazy playing off the crazy.
the Crusades nothing but religion and war
T and R x 2, jcb!! 🙂 That is a shame about Boudin and San Francisco.
I would bet zero,0, zilch
Bernie Sanders Should Run for President a Third Time
I think twice was enough for Bernie. He never could go for the jugular. But one can always hope for a better candidate.
It would depend on how bad things get that may make up his mind to run or not. Either way its a long way off politically and to much can and will happen. The only certainly is the Blue-Red blame game will roll on.
I know I’ve said it before, but I hope he doesn’t run again. He’s in his early 80s. The Bernster has proven that there are still honest people here who want to serve as true public servants. Bernie loves his family and needs to spend what time is left to him with them.
Cant argue that!!!
But, but all stimulus money Americans supposedly hoarded–how is this posssible
TY! That was my point!
This state is sitting on/stealing a lot of it.
Surging gas prices leave drivers stranded
Not exactly political but considering thier track record with unions.
The Denver Broncos and the Walton-Penner family have entered into a purchase and sale agreement to acquire the NFL team, it was announced on Tuesday.
The agreement to purchase the Broncos from the Pat Bowlen Trust is subject to approval from the NFL’s finance committee and league ownership, as well as “the satisfaction of customary closing procedures,” according to a statement from the Broncos.
The purchasing group is headed by Walmart heir Rob Walton, his daughter Carrie Walton Penner, and her husband Greg Penner, the chairman of Walmart.
“I have enjoyed getting to know Rob Walton, Carrie Walton Penner and Greg Penner throughout this process,” said Broncos president and CEO Joe Ellis.
Look out Bronco employees as the new owners may use the same wage and benefits that they do at their stores. I hope that they dont use their new cashier policy (lack of) for enterence into the stadium, imagine the lines :). The players are safe as their players union has the clout to stand to them and the other owners.
As long as the NFL remains a popular/$$$$ sports entertainment source, this stuff will continue. The fans want to own a team? Nope, that is communism/socialism. Really? The Green Bay Packers are owned by their fans. Look up their history. They have won quite a few championships over the decades. 🙂
No new franchise in the major sports are allowed to copy the GB model. BTW the Broncos sold for $4.65 billion, Meanwhile Palpatine( its what i call Jones now used to be Al Davis as thier age showed) said he’d start the bidding at 10 billion should he decide to sell the Cowboys
Looks like some R’s voted for it.
Final vote on House bill:
This fruitcake country had an assault weapons ban. It expired during Cheney-Dumya’s reign (of terror). Why can’t that be reinstated?
