Weekend thread: What's happening?
Arizona GOP governor's debate highlights total crackpots. Supreme Court's destruction of democracy continues. January 6th hearings turn the tide.
There is lot to be horrified about that happened this week. One Supreme Court ruling after another took a sledgehammer to our freedoms, our safety and the entire planet. And now they’re taking up a case that has democracy advocates sounding the alarm, and could allow state legislatures to control elections.
Meanwhile, in Arizona, the Republican candidates for governor had a debate which showed just how nutty, kooky, extreme and dangerous the GOP has become. You have to watch this highlight video to really get the full flavor.
But on a positive note, Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony at the January 6th select committee’s public hearing was a blockbuster event and really took us a step further toward justice. Not only is it becoming clearer people will be charged — and I believe Donald Trump will be among them — but it’s landing a blow to the MAGA movement and Trump’s possible run in 2024.
