House Republicans are now firmly in the grip of a deeply anti-democratic right-wing populism. Almost all have now essentially pledged to "support and defend" Donald Trump and Trumpism rather than the Constitution of the United States. They no longer are constrained by once inviolate norms or even by observable facts. If these radicals control the House on 1/6/25, and if a Democrat has won the Electoral College vote, it now seems completely possible that Republicans will instead confirm their own choice as president of the United States. If that happens, the world’s greatest democracy will come to an end.

from Heather Cox Richardson:

"Today, more than 100 scholars who study democracy issued a letter warning that “our entire democracy is now at risk.” The letter explains that the new election laws in Republican-led states, passed with the justification that they will make elections safer, in fact are turning “several states into political systems that no longer meet the minimum conditions for free and fair elections.”

If we permit the breakdown of democracy, it will be a very long time before we can reverse the damage. As a nation spirals downward, the political scientists, sociologists, and government scholars explain, “violence and corruption typically flourish, and talent and wealth flee to more stable countries, undermining national prosperity. It is not just our venerated institutions and norms that are at risk—it is our future national standing, strength, and ability to compete globally.”

The scholars called for federal action to protect equal access to voting and to guarantee free and fair elections. Voting rights should not depend on which party runs the state legislature, and votes must be cast and counted equally, regardless of where a citizen lives. They back the reforms in the For the People Act, which protects the right to vote, ends partisan gerrymandering, and curbs the flood of money into elections.

They urged Congress “to do whatever is necessary—including suspending the filibuster—in order to pass national voting and election administration standards that both guarantee the vote to all Americans equally, and prevent state legislatures from manipulating the rules in order to manufacture the result they want. Our democracy is fundamentally at stake.”

“History,” they wrote, “will judge what we do at this moment.”

Mr Tucker left the supermarket after the verbal duel with the cashier without making any purchase. But police say he returned immediately.

“Tucker walked directly back to the cashier, pulled out a handgun and shot her.”

Political newcomer and unabashed socialist India Walton is on the verge of defeating Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown in a Democratic primary on Tuesday night. It would be a stunning loss for one of the most prominent figures in New York’s Democratic establishment.

If Walton holds onto her lead and goes on to win the general election, she would become the first socialist mayor of a large American city since Milwaukee's Frank Zeidler, who left office in 1960.

'The Tea Party to the 10th power': Trumpworld bets big on critical race theory

Republicans aren’t coy about what they are trying to do. It’s not just about changing curricula. It’s about taking back Congress.

Former top aides to President Donald Trump have begun an aggressive push to combat the teaching of critical race theory and capitalize on the issue politically, confident that a backlash will vault them back into power.

"Now, I understand the disappointment many feel about the last election," he said. "I can relate. I was on the ballot. But you know, there's more at stake than our party and our political fortunes in this moment. If we lose faith in the Constitution, we won't just lose elections -- we'll lose our country."

The Republican party is the party of narcissism, and greed. Seen through that lens, every action and "contradiction" actually makes sense.

North of Nevada are Oregon and Idaho. Politically on the map "greater Idaho" is Trump-Tea Party and the upper left hand side, where the people are, is blue.

We did have a bad dream in the Malheur Wildlife Refuge occupation led by the younger Bundy who is now running for governor of Idaho.

As with most Republican populists, there is a tiny twist of truth that leads down Alice's rabbit hole of funny mirrors and hallucinogenic potions which are FOX News.
