  2. 🚨NEW: Democracy Docket’s 2023 Litigation Report 73 new democracy-related lawsuits filed across 31 states. 146 court orders that impacted voters across 34 states. 83 victories for voters across 26 states.
  3. In more than 700 cases over five years, Georgia reported inadequate housing as the sole reason for taking a child into foster care, a WABE and ProPublica analysis found. Advocates say it would be cheaper to help families get housing. When Georgia removes children for housing — eit
  4. Let's be clear: A vote for No Labels is a vote for Trump. A vote for Jill Stein is a vote for Trump. A vote for Cornel West is a vote for Trump. A vote for Robert Kennedy is a vote for Trump. Not voting is a vote for Trump. A vote for Biden & Democrats is a vote for democracy.
  5. A very big win for the future of democracy.
  6. Last night was a good night for democracy at the ballot box. Today we continue to fight for democracy in court.
  7. By Robert Reich Friends, The warfare in Gaza is calamitous and heartbreaking. But many of the things I hear or read about it from otherwise intelligent people strike me as blind to its realities. For example: “Gazans are unfortunate collateral damage.” I heard this today from an Israe
  8. At a time of chaos and conflict, the last thing Congress and the world needs is a top chaos agent, insurrectionist and legislative “terrorist” (as John Boehner put it) like Jim Jordan in the speaker’s office.
  9. HUGE - US wins deal for free elections in Venezuela next year, with opposition participating and international monitors. In return, US will relax sanctions on Venezuela, and can reimpose if anti-democratic leader Nicolas Maduro reneges. Biden scores another foreign policy win.
  10. In 2021, Alabama enacted an illegal map. In 2022, Alabama conducted elections under an illegal map. In 2023, Alabama lost in court and rather than comply, it defied the court's order. So yes, it's great the case was won, but don't overlook what the GOP did along the way.
  11. 5% of the US defense budget 50% of the Russian military destroyed Ukraine is the best national security investment America has ever made — we would be CRAZY not to continue it. Anyone who says otherwise is probably working with the Kremlin, whether they know it or not.
  12. Ask your Fox-watching friends if they’ve seen stories about Rep. Lauren Boebert publicly groping with her date and vaping at a public performance of Beetlejuice, all with kids present. Bet they’ll look at you blankly because Fox has simply not aired the story since it broke accor
  13. I hope you read and share.👇 Conservative activists are using new emerging technologies to develop powerful tools for voter suppression and election subversion. Left unchecked, we risk a new level of election vigilantism taking hold.
  14. By Robert Reich Friends, I thought today, Labor Day, might be a good one to introduce my father, Ed Reich, and tell you a little about him and the values he passed along to me. Labor Day makes me think of him, because on Labor Day, he kicked the bigots out of our house. Ed called hi
  15. Hibiscus moscheutos is all along the trail near my house. Most of it's white like this one but there are a few gorgeous pink ones as well. Unfortunately, I couldn't get close enough to take a photo. I love seeing our beautiful native plants. #rosemallow #virginiawetlands
  16. As we begin the week, I would watch North Carolina to see if the GOP overrides Gov Cooper’s veto and enacts its new voter suppression law. If so, I expect North Carolina to be sued.
  17. Make no mistake: The Jacksonville shooter didn't act alone. He was assisted by 50 senators, 210 House members, and the NRA. Pass it on.
