Capitalism feeds Racism. White supremacist cries for “Law and Order!” are about maintaining a thing-oriented, not a people-oriented, society. Dismantling unjust systems includes confronting the gross capitalistic spirit and the role it plays in racism, war and poverty.

Even if Trump refuses to say it publicly, we know that Vladimir Putin is no friend to democracy. For the safety of our troops, we must pass the Russia Bounty Response Act to force this Coward in Chief to act on #BountyGate. Presidential silence for 87 days is unacceptable.

Trump falsely told Woodward he has "broken every record" on judges (he didn't have the record either for judges appointed or percentage of judiciary filled), that Obama left him 142 vacancies (under 110), and that most presidents are left none (dozens). https://t.co/iIkqjl97hU

Quoted @sairarahman

Things RBG has done for women: - The right to sign a mortgage without a man - The right to have a bank acct without a male co-signer - The right to have a job without being discriminated based on gender - The right for women to be pregnant/have kids and work

Read this @sairarahman tweet aloud so that it sticks with you and others who hear it too Ruth Bader Ginsburg dedicated her life to the law so that our lives would be better The ultimate way to honor #RBG is to vote by or on November 3 Register. Organize. Vote. https://t.co/nbNZbcYNjU

This shouldn't get lost. At last night's rally, President Trump said he was "counting on" the federal courts to declare a winner on election night. That's not a thing courts do... but the fact that the President is calling for it demands our attention. https://t.co/m1AZHjBqVW

Dems aren't powerless. They can: 1. Abolish filibuster. 2. Statehood for DC, PR. 3. Increase # of federal judges. 4. Add 3 Justices to #SCOTUS. My @NewYorker column https://t.co/wmJ88Vxvkt

Correct. Dems don’t have to just take it lying down as Republicans attempt to steal the Supreme Court and enact minority rule. https://t.co/wVkdunE9qr

We can’t give in to fear and we can’t back down. Hope is not given to us—it’s created by us.

I can't believe Lady Janea @FlauntPaulson made this clever, kind rap just for ME, and she is mighty generous and talented ~ and I know her Grandfather was a pastor, and recently has gone to his reward, alas... but his gift for communication lives on in her. Thank you, Lady J! https://t.co/RO5dbxQLAu

Quoted @NateSilver538

We ran the numbers, and the Senate is currently around *6 to 7 points* (!) more Republican than the country as a whole, based on the position of the median states relative to the national average. That means Dems need ~landslide margins to win the Senate. https://t.co/0OejJ56Lia

Need to overcome a rigged Senate map to stop a rigged system of lifetime court appointments made by a president who was elected by a rigged Electoral College system. Rigged in favor of white conservatives at every level. A political system that amplifies and sustains white power. https://t.co/DkLffOQZ6i

Coronavirus UK cases up by nearly 4,000 in 24 hours https://t.co/T5EIW8vxD7

Americans should pay heed to the huge new #COVID19 surge in the UK, occurring as the Johnson govt is running low again on supplies & test kits. Could we face a similar fate as colder weather pushes people back indoors? https://t.co/5jFsLTOzZU

"The top five issues on Americans' minds..." and breakdown by party. Not surprising but deeply disappointing. Going to be challenging for Rs to enjoy the economy in the midst of a pandemic when the planet is on fire. Disregard for healthcare & race relations is beyond disturbing. https://t.co/ykvARy0JnT https://t.co/mC15G9FnHw

With the Senate split 53-47, we need just 4 Republicans to preserve our ability as voters to decide who should fill #RBG’s seat and protect our rights for decades. NO VOTE ON A NEW JUSTICE BEFORE A REAL PRESIDENT TAKES THE OATH OF OFFICE!

Our grief is real, but we cannot slip into despair. We simply can't afford it—too much is at stake. Today’s the day to honor Ruth with action. Today’s the day to channel grief into change. Today's the day to dig a little deeper and buckle up for an uphill fight.
