loving this.

I’m surprised Warren got a word in without Matthews talking over her.

Benny

I’m surprised she was able to squirrel out of it without answering the question. Maybe Bernie should take a tip from her: continue the frame about cost and get rid of the GOP talking point of taxes.

17 million.

“”Making our website fully compliant was a significant and ongoing undertaking. It required a redesign of the look and feel of the website, and a need to evaluate all of the thousands of documents and other files that were linked to our website,” Jeffrey Callison, CDCR assistant secretary for communications, told the Free Beacon.

He said the older reports are still publicly accessible and that some information was only temporarily removed.”

awesome timing

Peeked in at #DSACon19 just now:

We can only hope.

Those who have already qualified are Biden, Booker, Buttigieg, Harris, O’Rourke, Sanders and Warren.

Only 7 Candidates Have Qualified for the Next Democratic Debate

Candidates will need to have 130,000 unique donors and register at least 2 percent support in four polls. They have until Aug. 28 to reach those benchmarks.

Three other candidates are very close: The former housing secretary Julián Castro and the entrepreneur Andrew Yang have surpassed 130,000 donations and each have three of the four qualifying polls they need, while Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota has met the polling threshold and has about 120,000 donors.

Beyond them, only three candidates have even a single qualifying poll to their name: the impeachment activist Tom Steyer (2 polls), Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii (1) and former Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado (1).

Gabbard needs about 16,000 more individual contributors to qualify. The others, including Williamson, have no qualifying polls (no information on donations). I would like to see both Gabbard and Williamson in the next debates with the already qualified seven.

Lots of good observations, but the final one is a possible solution on what to do with Trump once he is out of office and may be worth thinking about and some discussion.

In the comments, the suggestion regarding lawsuits is also a good option.

Thank you jcitybone! I hope you have a wonderful trip, and I can’t wait to hear about it.

I peeked in again on the DSA convention thread and someone named Sarah Nelson sounds like she has everyone in the palm of her hand! I had not heard of her (there’s a first for everything, right?) but she’s a union organizer and sounds like she brought it.

IIRC, she is the head of the Flight Service Attendants’ union. Anyway, she is great on this stuff; worth watching for her.

magsview

Sounds like it!

Is this her??

Thank goodness I get a dose of positivity from reading Sara Nelson quotes from the DSA convention because then I read a bit about what’s going on in Greenland this week.

And to think, it wasn’t that long ago that discovering runoffs below the ice was big news. This is terrible.

Nikki Haley formally announces her 2024 run for the presidency. (/s)

To make change, we need the courage to fight corporate power:

Liz Cheney sounds so mature!

If Liz Cheney is concerned about our democracy getting attacked by Russia, she should be tweeting about Moscow Mitch. Nevermind. She wouldn’t want to jeopardize the millions in campaign contributions Moscow Mitch gets from Russian oligarchs.

wi61

Doesn’t matter whom launches first, Cheney must not know what MAD stands for. The only way a US city gets nuked first is by a rouge terrorist group.

Benny

Good! He can test the waters to see if a Republican lite can win over a real GOPer!
