What the Fuck is Happening With Tucker Carlson?

I don’t care about Tucker Carlson. He’s a prick that says prick-y things. Who cares. But this narrative he’s frantically pushing about the NSA spying on him, is over the top, even for Tucker. And the guy literally looks scared. For reals and true. Look at this Maria Bartiromo video clip in this Mediaite article from earlier this morning. Dude is scared. Also, what the fuck happened to Maria? She enunciates like Judge Jeannine now. Remember when she used to be the hot business chick on CNBC?

What we do know is: Tucker is the writer, director, and actor in this entire narrative. He is the creator. All we can do is measure Tucker’s story to itself. As it stands, there is no one we can condemn, and no actions to demand, because this is completely nothing. To Tucker, it’s really super-duper important, but it’s nothing. Nothing until outside forces enter the scene. It’s only a story right now and that’s totally fine.

Let’s examine his story’s narrative.

He says he was at a funeral in DC last week, and accidently ran into someone who said, “I have a message for you,” and then “the person” repeated back to him details from Carlson’s emails and texts. Also, the NSA has this information “…and that was proven by the person repeating back the details of the texts and emails.” So the person saying it, proves the NSA has the information? So the “person” works for the NSA, or someone in the DoD? That’s kinda what he’s implying, isn’t it. Could be true or not, but he is certainly implying it.

Carlson then says he learned yesterday, that the NSA has leaked this information to other journalists (plural), and the information will come out soon. Carlson got a call from a journalist whom he knows and likes, who said as much. So that’s not the person who is going to be leaking it. We now have three to four or even more different people aware of the story.

This is starting to sound pretty sloppy for the NSA isn’t it? Like the NSA is shopping this story all over the place? Nah, come on Tucker.

Tucker says, the reason the NSA is leaking this, apparently all over the place, is because they want to discredit him. They want to threaten opposition journalists. Meh.

He says the NSA never denied it. Although they had.

Carlson goes on to say he talked to NSA officials (plural), and this was confirmed. He had a “shouting match with NSA officials.” Who used artful terms, that he is not a target of an investigation. This fits nicely with the above NSA rebuttal. He wasn’t targeted, and the NSA does in fact spy on foreign officials. Those aren’t statements in conflict.

So he has had communications with someone about something…and that person was a target of the NSA. In the course of investigating their target, they came across Tucker Carlson communications. Right? This is what Tucker Carlson is really, clearly implying. We can all see that.

Interesting to note, with Maria, Tucker says, that it’s known that the NSA gives information to the Justice Dept., in order for them to charge American citizens with crimes. He doesn’t Blame Biden, he says the NSA is a free operator. So whatever has happened, started during the Trump Admin, right? He both says, it’s a political operation for “opposition journalists” and the Biden Admin isn’t the one directing it, which are two statements in conflict. So if it is in fact the NSA, they or the DOJ didn’t act on it under Trump. Right? He’s very much stuck on the idea that the DOJ is going to use this information.

Is this hinting that he is going to be charged with something, or that something uncomfortable is going to be leaked by other journalists. It’s hard to figure where Tucker is going with this. These two things don’t coexist well. Unless it is going to be leaked *and* he is going to be charged nearly simultaneously. Really, really doubt that.

Tucker is bemoaning the fact that “the press” isn’t protecting him on the behalf of journalism. No one has any fucking idea what the fuck you’re talking about Tucker, how can others protect you from what is not clear, based on the sounds coming out of your mouth? When whatever documents there are come out, maybe then. No clue.

Now tonight’s video of Tucker on his own show:

Again Tucker is blaming everyone else for not protecting him. Now he seems more of the mind to blame the Biden administration, something he didn’t do earlier with Maria.

Sources in the intel community told at least one reporter in Washington about Tucker’s emails. So this is yet another named person(s) who have the information.

  1. Someone he implies is in the NSA or DoD.

2. A journalist friend.

3. Some unknown “journalists” plural.

4. NSA officials he shouted at.

5. A source in the Intel community (and by extension that reporter who might be one of the above or not)

-A lot of people.

Now it’s starting to get interesting. Tucker’s going to tie it up for us and make it a little clearer.

Tucker goes on to describe how he contacted “some people” about an interview with Putin. He lets slips, “Emailing with people who know Putin, are you?” as he mocks what he pretends is the NSA’s position.

He says Putin does evil things, so of course any American journalist who might want to interview Putin would be painted as evil as well, and that’s how the NSA plans on discrediting Tucker Carlson. Because he’s evil enough to talk to an evil man.

This is just incredible bullshit. That he felt the need to contact Putin through special connections other than the vast resources he has at his fingertips at Fox? Special connections, which he admitted are people who personally know Putin.

Interviewing Putin happens to be a big fucking deal that Americans love to see, because it’s rare and we WANT an American journalist asking Putin the tough questions. We know that’s effing true because the NBC interview of Putin, 3 weeks ago, was hyped for days and people were psyched to see it. That wasn’t a mark of shame, it was an effing gold star. So the entire “evil by association is the NSA’s whole plan” is nonsens

Tucker’s chief concern throughout all of this, is the DOJ is going to charge him with something. What is clear to me is that the Putin-interview narrative is not the actual epicenter of this story.

We, as of yet, have no reason to believe anything about the NSA or DOJ, unless these documents are marked, and even then, it’s not a sure thing either of those leaked the documents. If they are clean, Tucker is trying to get out in front of what he fears would be a investigation, by acting like the government was behind it the whole time. This could also be true if they are marked.

UPDATE. My entire understanding was from watching these 2 vids. I have zero information aside from those. Emptywheel on twitter (a great guy for legal stuff) has this whole complex theory that the intermediaries Tucker spoke to, are in custody with prolly the FBI, and this whole thing is a self-leak to run the Putin-interview story as cover up. i don’t get how that all works, but he knows a lot more stuff than me.

Then I went over to a Trumpublican thread and read what they had to say…they pretty much are only worried about Tucker being “unmasked”. Once that word enters the story, it’s game over. Nothing else will matter. Go figure. No intellectual curiosity whatsoever.

Extra updated: After reading some twitter threads today from both sides of the aisle, what has emerged to me is this:

Focusing on “who” leaked the information might be a complete waste of time. For all we know, it may very well be Tucker himself. An important thing to focus on right now, and later, is that Tucker is completely in control of the narrative. It’s all his to do with as he pleases. What pleases him is to highlight “unmasked” because that is an absolute trigger for those on the right. It literally doesn’t matter what happens after this because the magic word has been spoken. No matter what comes out, it will all be a “process crime” of the left, even if there are no crimes. It’s finished. Over.

What is also crystal clear, is this is just a firestorm of utter bullshit. With idiot conspiracy theories all over the place that are based on nothing. No-thing. There is nothing.

Finally, what is clear, is that there shall be a different topic, the actual thing that happened. it isn’t the Putin interview. It’s the other thing that Tucker did, whatever the fuck it is. This entire charade is created to excuse that other thing.

Trump Ends Rally Speech with inciting Crowd to March to Capitol…and they did

**Updating this thread throughout day**

After angrily rehashing all the insane conspiracy theories, at end of Trump’s cult rally speech, Trump tells crowd he won’t be happy if Pence doesn’t do the “right” thing. He warns his crowd, they won’t have a country anymore if the election is allowed to stand.

This is what he says at end of speech:

“So, we’re going to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue, and we’re going to the Capitol, and we’re going to try to give our Republicans- the weak ones, because the strong ones don’t need any help, and try to give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country. So let’s walk down Pennsylvania Avenue.”

Trump has incited this. The Capitol is now beginning to be overrun. It doesn’t look completely awful yet, but if they are allowed to continue to amass into the evening hours I guarentee you this doesn’t end well.

Trump did this. Purposefully.

-Go to 1:12 of this video to see Donny telling everyone they have to fight, and shortly after he directs them to march on the Capitol. US election: Trump tells protesters in DC “we will never give up, we will never concede” | FULL – YouTube

-This statement from Trump, isn’t to end this situation, it is to keep it going. I presume until he can make some kind of statement of demands or further grievances that must be addressed somehow.

Of great concern: Still Vigilant Grandma 🇺🇸🗽 on Twitter: “@SteveSchmidtSES Police opened gates and offered them in 😡 https://t.co/cFJmIekwzR” / Twitter

-Live stream from magidiot point of view on steps in front of entrance to Capitol. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNJKNpAOs5k

-Bingo. Trump airs his grievances again in a short vid shot in front of WH, insists on his fantasy, “but…go home.” Fucking asshole. This was all his reality TV production, from which he plans on profiting in perpetuity.

Donald J. Trump on Twitter: “https://t.co/Pm2PKV0Fp3” / Twitter

-It’s 4:30pm now. Really need a plan to get these people out of the Capitol soon. This will be bad if not.

-Twitter has labeled Donny’s above piece of shit video as likely to incite further violence. Rightly so. Can’t be retweeted, liked or any of that. They are probably considering if they should permaban him from twitter, shouldn’t yet. I bet you they are moving on to considering prescreening anything he tries to tweet from here on out. I rate this as likely.

-As Maddow points out, exactly where are federal government representatives? I think if we’re hoping for an unusual enactment of the 25th amendment, which is entirely warranted at this point, it ain’t gonna happen.

I can’t believe I’d actually be happy to hear from Mike Pence, but I would. Someone needs to fill the void of lack of leadership.

I’m afraid many of the MAGA enablers and Trump talking heads probably aren’t going to jump off the Trump train. They will yet be, apologists for what Trump did today. They will say, well he didn’t say go be violent. He did. Just like a mob boss he implied it…repeatedly. Just like the phone call to Georgia demanding the finding of votes. If they didn’t do it, they would be charged with crimes and ran out of their jobs. It was implied…repeatedly.

The mash-up of police and National guard are not equal to this task. Or- they are not equal to the level of appropriate response. This isn’t the Seattle mob tug and pull with federal forces on a street corner (whom Federal forces, State police, and local police would have zero problem beating up). No. This is a storming of our US Capitol building. This is *not* “let’s just simmer it down, we’re all friends here,” this is an invading mob that needs to be expelled from the city. It is a really bad idea to turn this into a face to face showdown with no endgame.

-Apparently I was wrong about twitter pre-screening Trump tweets. Twitter. This really needs censoring. This is not good.

7:15pm. Ah, 3 hours later….Twitter is now considering taking action with Trump’s Twitter account.

Looks like twitter just deleted Donny’s last two tweets..could be he’s about to be canned.

What’s really funny and sad at the same time, is all of my twitter accounts got perma-banned yesterday. Yesterday. ha. Because I referred to a Fox newscaster as a “tard,” in response to one of *my own tweets* in someone else’s feed. Not even directly to him, but someone musta not liked that word so much, twitter definitely didn’t. Not my first account suspended, but I was surprised, I received an entire IP ban. Don’t know if I can get back on twitter again at this point.

Won’t see my crying, or yelling about being unfairly treated. I take my lumps.

Senate back up. Mike Pence using this opportunity to act presidential. This isn’t the speech we want. We want to know you have recognized the problem and are going to take action. That is presidential. The old “We will not be cowered” thing is ill-conceived, this is your America and your American citizens. You need to explain the situation to them. The real, actual situation they find themselves in. That would be presidential.

Trump’s Call to Georgia: It’s as bad as you think.

Donald Trump’s party call to Georgia on January 2nd as reported by the Washington Post: a partial transcript.

Some people say this was leaked to WP from someone inside the Trump Administration. To me, when I first heard it, I thought it was recorded on the Georgia side. Makes more sense to me, but I don’t really care which party it was. It’s incriminating to Trump, and security for Raffensperger. Raffensperger played it straight and offered very little.

Trying to transcribe this is a mess because Trump speaks in a complete, jumbled mess. I mostly went verbatim, but cleaned up a little.

I skipped large chunks of it. There’s much more of the same throughout the hour plus recording, I just focused on the more continuous sections.

Trump speaks for probably 90% of the call. The first 15 minutes are an endless cult conspiracy theory rehash by Donny.

I want to say, these kind of phone calls, are probably what Donny has been doing for the past 2 months when he isn’t golfing. He clearly could just bullshit on the phone all day long, every day. In this particular instance, he is very comfortable playing the mob boss, handing out “suggestions” with accompanying veiled threats if those suggestions are not followed. He is honestly quite good at this.

In his own madman style, he does quite well in not finishing sentences or scattered thoughts that imply the type of action he wants, or the type of consequence that will follow if those actions are not met, while simultaneously not directly connecting the two. I will highlight those sentence/thought fragments.

It is worse than his Ukraine call. Much worse. Trump more clearly states he wants fraud to be committed on his behalf in order to win an election. Even if not as a legal matter, that this conversation happened at all, is not acceptable. I do not doubt that a similar conversation was had with other state(s).

Parties: Trump, Mark Meadows, and Trump lawyer Cleta Mitchell: Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, Sec. State Legal Counsel Ryan Germany.

*****************************

Trump: By the way, a little information, I think you’re going to find that they are shredding ballots, because they have to get rid of the ballots. ‘Cause the ballots are unsigned, because the ballots are corrupt, and they’re brand new and they don’t have seals and there’s a whole thing with the ballots. But, the ballots are corrupt and you’re going to find that they are…which is totally illegal, it’s more illegal for you then it is for them because you know what they did and you’re not reporting it. That’s a criminal offense. You know, you can’t let that happen. That’s a big risk to you and to Ryan, your lawyer. That’s a big risk. But, they are shredding ballots, in my opinion, based on what I’ve heard and they are removing machinery, and they’re moving it as fast as they can. Both of which are criminal fines and you can’t let it happen and you are letting it happen, I mean, I’m notifying you that you are letting it happen.

So…look, all I want to do is this. I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. Because we won the state and flipping the state is a great testament to our country, because you know, it’s a testament that they can admit to a mistake, or, whatever you want to call it. If it was a mistake, I don’t know. A lot of people think it wasn’t a mistake it was much more criminal than that. But, it’s a big problem in Georgia and it’s not a problem that’s going away. Not a problem that’s going away…

Ryan Germany: This is Ryan, we are looking at every one of those things that you mentioned…and our investigators…

Trump: Good, but if you find them, you got to say it.

<crosstalk>

Germany: Let me tell you what we are seeing. What we are seeing is *not at all what you’re describing* <with emphasis>. These are investigators from our office, these are investigators from GBI. And they’re looking, and they’re good, and that’s not what they’re seeing, and we’ll keep looking, we’ll keep looking at all these things…

Trump: Well you better check on the ballots, ’cause they are shredding ballots, I’m just telling you Ryan. they’re shredding ballots and you should look at that very carefully, because that’s so illegal. You may not even believe it, cause it’s so bad. But, they’re shredding ballots because they think we’ll eventually get there, because we’ll eventually get into Fulton. In my opinion it’s never too late.

So, um that’s the story. Look, we need only 11,000 votes, we have far more than that as it stands now.

**********

In speaking on Military/overseas ballots-

Trump: A large batch came in, and it was, quote, 100% for Biden and that is criminal, you know, that’s criminal. Okay, that’s another criminal. That’s another of the many criminal events. Many criminal events here.

Um. I don’t know, look Brad, I have to get, I have to find 12,000 votes and I have them, times a lot. And, therefore, I won the state. That’s before we go to the next step, which is in the process of, right now, you know.

I watched you this morning and you said, ah, there was no criminality, but I mean all of this stuff is very dangerous stuff, when you talk about no criminality. I think it’s very dangerous for you to say that. I just don’t know why you don’t want to have the votes counted as they are.

So what are we going to do here, folks? I only need 11,000 votes. Fellas, I need 11,000 votes, give me a break. We have that in spades already.

So tell me, Brad, what are we going to do? We won the election, and it’s not fair to take it away from us like this. And it’s going to be very costly, in many ways, and I think you have to say you’re going to re-examine it and you can re-examine it. But re-examine it with people who want to find answers, not people that don’t want to hear answers.

*************************

There is one particular election employee Trump is stuck on, that is beeped out of the recording. He insists every vote she scanned went for Biden. Raffensperger says: that is not correct. Trump won’t let it go. Trump restates Raffensperger’s position as:

“He (Raffensperger) made that statement with surety [sic], but now I think he’s less sure, because the answer is: they all went to Biden, and that alone wins us the election by a lot.

Raffensperger: Mr. President, you have people that submit information and we have our people that submit information, and then it comes before the court, and then the court makes a determination. We have to stand by our numbers. We believe our numbers are right.

Trump: Why do you say that though? Sure we can play this game with the courts.

***We have to stop there to highlight how messed up this exchange is. What Raffensperger is making clear is that to challenge the state’s finding, puts these two parties on opposite sides of a legal battle. What Trump is making clear, is that he is fully aware that every legal challenge is failing because it has no merit, but he’s bluffing that, sure we could do that if you wanted to. I want to subvert the rightful place of the courts with our own little agreement. Throughout this conversation, I’m letting you know, you better just do what I say, and make a deal that I won the state, or there will be personal legal consequences and/or future election consequences for you.***

Trump: Hey Brad, why wouldn’t you want to check out (beeped out election lady’s name) and why wouldn’t you want to say, hey, if in fact, President Trump is right about that, then he wins the state of Georgia. Just that one incident alone, without going through hundreds of thousands of dropped ballots. You just say, you stick by… I mean I’ve been watching you for…you don’t care about anything. Your numbers are right. But your numbers aren’t right. They’re really wrong and they’re really wrong Brad, and I know this phone call is going nowhere, but ultimately…

Look ultimately I win, okay? because you guys are so wrong and you’ve treated the population of Georgia so badly. Between you and your governor who was down 21 points, and like a schmuck, I endorsed him, and he got elected. But, I will tell you, he’s a disaster, and he will never…I can’t imagine. The people are so angry in Georgia, I can’t imagine he’s ever getting elected right now.

But why wouldn’t you want to find the right answer, Brad? Instead of keeping saying the numbers are right, because those numbers are so wrong.

*****

Mark Meadows jumps in with the idea, both sides just need to meet really soon and agree there’s some actual big issues that need to be examined and the Federal government wants access to Georgia voter data.

Trump then threatens if they don’t settle what Trump wants, the upcoming runoff won’t go to the republicans. Raffensperger says, you can meet with the lawyers and they’ll tell you why your beliefs are wrong. He is not going to have an official meeting with them, as if any of their fever dreams are true. Raffensperger won’t allow them access to Georgia state election data. He is putting the ball in their court to go to court if they want.

Throughout this conversation, Trump highlights how Stacey Abrams is making a fool out of Georgia GOP. Everyone hates the Georgia Governor and Raffensperger.

Trump: Brad, we just want the truth, it’s simple. And ah, and everyone’s going to look very good if the truth comes out. It’s ok, it might take a little while. But, let the truth come out. And the real truth is I won by 400,000 votes, at least. That’s the real truth. But, we don’t need 400,000 votes, we need less than 2000 votes.

*************************************************

Added 1/4

I’d like to add, now that it seems more evident that this leak to WP came from the Georgia side and not the Trump admin, this makes more sense to what I originally posited.

Also, it is now reported this was the 18th attempt by Donny to get Raffensperger on the phone. 18. So my original assessment that this is how Donny has likely spent the last two months in office, aside from golfing, is closer to being accurate.

How Did the Pardon-for-Bribe Scheme Remain a Secret?

It was not “the government” as described in the court ruling, that solely devised to delay the release of the Trump pardon-for-bribe scheme. I suppose “the government” would initially be the FBI, in this case. It was Judge Beryl Howell, who is most recent in our memory for directing the DOJ to release unredacted version of the Mueller report to the House Judiciary Committee in their search for gathering information for Trump’s impeachment, that allowed the delayed timing of the unsealing of the document related to the Trump pardon for bribe scheme.

On August 28th, 2020 a court memorandum was issued for the government’s desire to investigate messages between (redacted) parties concerning the discovered pardon scheme, that became apparent to the government’s “filter” team who were scouring computer devices for anything protected by attorney/client privilege in a separate case.

The judge allowed 90 days (Sept> Oct> Nov 28) for the government to respond to the court’s desire to release a redacted version of the original document. The government did respond on the 25th of November, asking for the document to be kept sealed. The Judge then asked, why is it, if every name is redacted, would this need to be kept under wraps? The government responding by simply forwarding the document, fully redacted at the judge’s original request, on Nov. 30.

Could the judge have given the government 30 days or 60 days? I guess. My guess also is, this is already a done deal. It already didn’t happen, and wasn’t going to happen as the proposed pardon-for-bribe scheme. So the judge was either operating outside of concern for the upcoming election, or under the concern that a scheme that didn’t happen would unnecessarily affect the election.

I presume this, from one unredacted line in the original memo.

The investigative team, should have access to all of the communications, so they can “confront” the named individuals to either wrap it up, or commit to further investigative steps to determine what crimes were committed. Not: So the investigative team can ascertain the scope of the crimes for something that has happened or was likely to happen, from which to charge the named individuals.

In short, there was a proposed scheme among four individuals to undertake the pardon-for-bribe scheme. At some point two of the individuals did have access to “senior White House officials,” but whether or not the proposition ever got to the stage of a pardon-for-bribe is dubious, and whether or not the scheme matters at all now isn’t clear. That an effort was made to appeal for a pardon, probably happened, but we don’t know if a bribe was ever offered.

At any rate, the timeline proposed, that pushed the document past the election date, was Judge Beryl Howell’s doing, and the government availed themselves of using all of that time.

It becomes kind of confusing from the redacted names, and trying to figure how they are being referred to. There is:

  1. A prisoner (current or past).
  2. Prisoner’s lawyer.
  3. Outside lawyer.
  4. A political donor.

A large portion of the legible part of the document is dedicated to describing how it is, as far as the court is concerned, that the government should have access to the communications in question, which appear to be entirely emails. Judge Howell explains in full detail, any cover the 4 individuals might have had is spoiled from the emails being CCed to the donor whom does not enjoy attorney/client privilege with any of the parties.

It is also argued that the outside lawyer, is not plausibly working for the prisoner or the prisoner’s lawyer, but even if such a stand were made, refer to the first point. Emails already spoiled.

There is one other interesting tidbit. Apparently the outside lawyer was already aware of this investigation, probably within that 90 day window, because he tried to change the subject line on three emails to indicate that he did enjoy attorney/client privilege as far as the contents of those particular emails were concerned.

If I am correct, the originating case has/had been going on for some time. It could possibly already be concluded. This new/tangential case that sprung from it, would have been apparent as a potentiality to all parties involved if the prisoner and/or any accomplices chose to cooperate with authorities in a plea deal. Such is the case of Elliot Broidy (and accomplices), whose name immediately sprung to mind upon hearing about about this potential pay-to-play scheme.

Also, it’s worth noting that three of the four were to be confronted with the scheme, not all four. The fourth I presume is/was the one in prison who is fully aware of the investigation.

Not sure how that would end up in a DC court though.

GOP’s Failure with Covid19 Will Accelerate the “Browning” of America, or else

I had written a post, almost 2 years ago now: “What Trump’s Backers Need From You: Have More White Babies”, outlining one certain, basic, unspoken tenant shared by Trump’s key, disparate coalition of supporters. I had recognized three particular groups forming this coalition:

Racists/nationalists, the donor/dividend class, and Evangelicals. They work behind the scenes and in front of the spotlight. They are the propagandists, the financiers, the puller-of-strings, twister-of-arms, and headline news grabbing, creepy ideologues that cause rational people fits of concern.

Sometimes these groups overlap and it is possible for any one person to be a member of all three groups. Sometimes they have nothing to do with each other at all but are merely happy bedfellows. In one area, there is an overlapping vital interest: US population shift- the coloring of America.

What they need from you is simple: have more white babies. Lots and lots of white babies. Is that so hard?

We do not know the long term effects of Covid19. How could we? We’re in the middle of it. It will take years to authoritatively state its many long term consequences, from health issues to economic impact. There is an interesting projection made by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) that will concern greatly the above three groups, and frankly, should concern all of us.

That is a difference of 10 million people.

I want to restate what I had pointed out in my Have More White Babies post: the area already having the largest difficulty repopulating itself, is the red wall in the middle of the country. When this falls to intraregional migration and immigration, which it must, so shall the ideological divide powerfully wielded in the electoral college fall.

Repopulation chart before covid19:

Also from the Have More White Babies post:

Here’s a mind-blowing quote from the Pew Charitable Trust’s study on US population shift: “Immigrants are already disproportionately represented in the labor force with a share of about 16%, while they make up about 13% of the overall population. The Pew Research Center has determined that if current immigration trends and birthrates continue, by 2050 virtually all (93%) of the nation’s working age population growth will come from immigrants and their US born children.”

New, restrictive abortion laws aren’t going to save those states. Too little, too late. It would take herculean gerrymandering and voter disenfranchisement to put a dent in the inexorable tendency towards our natural state of a true liberal democracy and an inclusive government of the people, by the people, for the people.

We will become more brown, or else.

We’ve always needed immigrants. We’ve always wanted immigrants. Now, we have no choice.

The GOP needs to do a 180 on immigration, with a well considered indoctrination campaign. Something super far reaching, much like their 10 year plan to legislate their minority rule from the courts. This would require an overt effort, similar to the scope of actual governance. The GOP is not capable of that.

This CBO report is full of bleak forecasts.

These forecasts are not something a President Biden “fixes”. He shall seek to mitigate the worst impact and hopefully set a course for future presidents to wholly, unequivocally reshape the nation.

We are in a time where drastic change is unavoidable.
