A Growing population in the USA highly educated enclaves has led to huge gains for the Democratic Party. And the GOP is scrambling for answers.

Did you hear the one about the former guy who changed team allegiance during the ninth inning because he was losing the game?

Mr. Perdue’s impending downfall this coming Tuesday’s primary for Georgia governor looms as the biggest electoral setback for The former guy since his own defeat after the 2020 presidential election. This humiliating setback should be followed by many bigger losses as folks realize that he can’t win without Russian assistance.

Bad news for Trump. US Department of Justice probes January six, and some favorite political GOP candidates are now deep-sixed.

Republicans are suffering from premature election speculation. Their primary outcimes have presented an eroding picture of Donald Trump’s influence on the Republican Party, leaving open the question of whether his grip on the GOP is increasingly slippery and unbreakable. They are pointing at the primary to continue an increasing effort to undermine our democratic electoral system

America is in trouble. Republicans have been targeting Florida and Texas to deny a democrat the White House.

A couple of other articles I think you'll find very interesting. America is broken, and in my opinion, there's no way of fixing it unless all elections are publicly funded, with strict term limits imposed. Voter registration is as easy as opening up a new bank account online.

Doubting Clarence, and Ginni Thomas: Her hard-right activism and his hand-waving insouciance have now damaged SCOTUS.

Ginni Thomas was feeding Trump misinformation about the validity of the 2020 election and was a key player in his efforts to overturn the election results and some Republicans are defending that behavior?

American Democracy needs USA pollsters to ask your important questions focusing on national issues.

How can anti-democratic #Republicans have fifty US Senators who represent a #USA minority be keeping obstruction alive inside Congress? Just give USA taxpayers the whole truth.

Dramedy is a morpheme of both drama and comedy and it is growing in The US Senate with the actions of Congressional Jesters.

YES - #kyrstensinema and @JoeManchinWV have some good ideas on voting rights and one terribly bad one as well.

Allow me to begin by saying that I worked for President HW Bush and it appears to me that he would be shocked by the following.

I am not a #Republican, I have no political affiliation but in terms of the Bush #GOP dynasty and the expanded family tree, George P. Bush is the son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, the nephew of former President George W. Bush, and the grandson of my former boss US president George H.W. Bush, and the great grandson of Senator Prescott Bush.

There is a new Sheriff in town and his name is POTUS. This one is much different than the last one who bowed to Putin. President Joe Biden has announced from The Whitehouse that he has leveled an array of sanctions against the Russian government for placing bounties on USA troops, its attempted interference in the 2020 American presidential election, occupation of the Crimea, and other malign activities by the Communists.

On last night's show  Lawrence was interviewing Aaron Sorkin and Sasha Baron Cohen about their award-winning film.
