Trump teases Marco Rubio in Doral

Tennessee Brando on Project 2025


I have to agree with Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez  Our best chance to prevent Donald Trump from estalbishing an authoritarian government that caters only to the rich and powerful is to support Joe Biden in his bid to become our next president. Biden has a history of supporting causes that support our democracy and the people of this country, he is well respected around the world, and his proposed policies for his next term in office will be sound measures that will benefit our democracy and our people. And IF something should happen that requires Biden to step down from office, Kamala Harris would faithfully manage this country far, far better than Trump ever could.

Civil rights groups ask for federal investigation into campus protests response

Multiple civil rights groups are asking the Departments of Justice and Education to investigate the police response to the campus protests surrounding the Israel-Hamas war this academic year. 

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund, the National Urban League and numerous Arab and Jewish groups are demanding civil rights investigations into multiple schools that saw demonstrations, including Columbia University, Emory University, the University of Texas at Austin and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

They want the federal departments “to investigate the allegations of law enforcement abuses — in response to peaceful protests occurring in cities and on university campuses across the country — that may be in violation of federal laws.” 

More than 2,000 individuals were arrested among the dozens of pro-Palestinian encampments that were set up on campuses, largely in violation of school policies regarding camping out on college property. 

Students at Columbia University went as far to take over a campus building briefly, and other schools saw vandalism and disruptions during finals week. Violence broke out at UCLA as pro-Israel protesters invaded the camp of the pro-Palestinian activists.

The groups are concerned about police force that was used at some protests, allegedly including tear gas, rubber bullets and pepper balls. 

“Many current peaceful protesters, including students, faculty, and other stakeholders, are similarly exercising their constitutional rights by expressing their condemnation of the extreme and escalating violence in Gaza,” the letter to the departments reads.

Project 2025: The Far-Right Playbook for American Authoritarianism

The far right has made public its plans for an ‘ideal’ America if one of their allies wins the 2024 presidential election in its 2025 Presidential Transition Project. Project 2025 is spearheaded by the far-right think tank Heritage Foundation and supported by more than 80 organizations, many well-known for their extreme positions, and for pushing hate and Christian nationalism. The authors and supporters of Project 2025 claim this plan will “rescue the country” from “elite rule and woke cultural warriors.”....MORE
