Asher’s Late Post Debate Ranking

Hello friends,

This is late, though I would like to highlight some moments from the Democratic debate some nights ago...

Bernie Sanders, with his commitment to peace and healthcare as a right, did well. Elizabeth Warren did as well, with a similar progressive agenda. Andrew Yang did well, and his points on national security were spot on. He also hit the nail on the head with positive attention to preventing men from joining hate groups. Each of these three have the character, platform, and energy to do well in the general election and beyond!

Cory Booker might have won the night with his comment on cannabis, and standing up for the issue, as well as how it affects people of color. I applaud him for that! I loved Tulsi Gabbard’s message on ending regime change wars per usual, though I wasn’t impressed with how she handled criticism from Kamala Harris—I was not happy with either during that exchange. I liked how Tom Steyer mentioned term limits! I appreciate Pete Buttigieg clarifying that his position would not be to invade Mexico, and I would love to see more common cause between him and Tulsi, rather than animosity. I was not too impressed with Joe Biden (aside from his gaffes, I did like his performance more so this time around), Kamala, or Amy Klobuchar.

1. Bernie Sanders
2. Andrew Yang
3. Elizabeth Warren
4. Tulsi Gabbard
5. Cory Booker
6. Pete Buttigieg
7. Tom Steyer
8. Kamala Harris
9. Joe Biden
10. Amy Klobuchar

Each candidate has their strengths, and we should work to be kind to supporters of each. That is something my first choices are sincere about — Bernie, Andrew, and Elizabeth all have been cordial, and we should follow their example regarding positive discourse! It’s okay to criticize politics and records without unnecessary, personal attacks! As a Bernie supporter, I call on all my fellow Bernie supporters to follow Bernie’s example and refrain from senseless vitriol, especially against others on the left. Enough with the animosity; we need to set an example for strength with decency, rather than strength with venom. Thank you.

— Asher

Florida GOP Senators Task Ahead

Soon Rick Scott and Marco Rubio will be asked to make a decision that will follow them the rest of their lives. They can come out of this a hero or a coward.
Courage is the quality of a confident character not to be afraid or intimidated easily but without being incautious or inconsiderate while coward is a person who lacks courage.

Tampa GOP Party at a Town 'n' Country Strip Mall

Ronda Storms was honored by the local party during the event, receiving a lifetime achievement award.
But unlike the other honored recipients who paused for a photo and then moved off stage after having their name called, Storms grabbed the microphone and proceeded to verbally bash Republican legislative leaders in Tallahassee who she accused of being soft on abortion and criminal justice issues.
Saying it was time for a “family conversation,” Storms said she agreed with an earlier comment that the Florida GOP was “not the far left. But we also don’t want to be left-lite.”
 Florida clown Matt Gaetz provided the entertainment. 
“The impeachment of Donald Trump is the Democratic excuse for the lack of an agenda or an agenda that is downright terrified of the American people.”
His sidekick Ross Spano was also there
“Their ends justify their means, they believe, and they will stop at nothing for the pursuit of power, up to and including the soft revolution to overthrow and unseat a duly elected president.”
Mr. Spano is  under investigation by the Department of Justice for alleged campaign finance violations.

Congratulations Hong Kong

Hong Kong’s voters have turned out in record numbers to deliver a landslide for pro-democracy campaigners in local elections, handing them control of every one of the region’s 18 councils for the first time.
Both in absolute numbers and in turnout rates it was easily the biggest exercise in democratic participation that Hong Kong 
has seen.
Nearly 3 million people had voted, representing more than 71% of the electorate and nearly half of Hong Kong’s population. Many 
had never voted before. HERE
Imagine this happening here!

spreading lies
He derided the case against Trump as a plot by “totalitarians” and the “left.”
“These are totalitarians. They’ll put you in jail if you disagree with them,” 
“When Trump won, he fundamentally shattered the self-confidence of the left.”
speaking to the overflow crowd at a Plantation synagogue, Gingrich seemingly dismissed the week’s worth of testimony and instead reiterated what has been the key GOP talking point in defending Trump — that the Ukraine scandal is the work of an anonymous whistleblower conspiring with 
House Democrats.

Florida GOP Rick Scott Breaks His Silence

"I think this is a pretty boring reality show. It’s not going to get a second season.” 

Silence of the Florida Lambs

We now know where he stands (Expected). 
Mr. Scott there will be a second season and you are going to be a star. I hope when it comes time to cast your vote you think hard about the consequences of your actions. 
History is watching!

Florida GOP Laura Loomer Failed Miserably

Anti-Muslim activist Laura Loomer, who is currently pursuing elected office in Florida, utterly failed in her attempt to sue the Council on American-Islamic Relations. On Monday, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida dismissed the remainder of Loomer’s lawsuit against the organization on the basis that it “fail[ed] as a matter of law” and was “nonsensical.” HERE

Talkin' 'bout my Generation
The Stonewall Riots

See the complete documentary HERE

When you push someone hard enough and for long enough, they are likely to strike back. When you push a whole class of society hard enough and long enough, you are likely to get a riot and perhaps even a revolution. That was Stonewall.

In the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, the N.Y. City Police raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village for the second time in less than a week. This was a time when homosexuality was illegal in every state except Illinois, when homosexuality was widely recognized as a mental disorder within the psychiatric community and the federal and state governments believed that those who engaged in homosexuality lacked the emotional stability of normal persons and were a security threat to the nation, when gay bars were forced so far out of the mainstream that many, including the Stonewall Inn, were operated by the Mafia, when gays had no choice but to move to the largest cities in the country in order to seek anonymity.

Because of the Mafia ownership of the Stonewall Inn, previous raids were preceded by tips from paid police insiders and the raids typically occurred early in the evening so that business could quickly resume afterward. The raid on June 28, 1969, however, occurred without prior notice and in the early hours on a Saturday morning. Patrons of the Stonewall were taken completely by surprise. Instead of arresting only those dressed in drag and a few employees, as was typically the case, this time the police announced that everyone in the club was being arrested. As patrons were escorted out the only exit to the club, they began to resist. The word quickly spread throughout Greenwich Village and people began gathering at the Stonewall. With support of the immediate community, the gay community in Greenwich violently struck back at the police, at the oppression they had endured silently all their lives. The riots over the two days of June 28 and 29 are considered to be the beginning of a revolution that has reshaped the public perception of the LGBTQ+ community.

Within two years after the Stonewall Riot, newspapers catering strictly to the gay communities sprung up all over the country, gay activist organizations were formed in practically every major city in the country and gay pride marches were first organized in cities all over America and the world. The face of Homosexuality was no longer hidden from mainstream society. Walls began to tumble.
