Trump is going all out on attacking the press. He's got the White House raccoons going after them.

The only message at a polling place should be 'go vote'. Are you advocating for lúb Dems to arm themselves and stand as close as legally allowed to the local polling to places as a strategy for good political engagement in the next UK election?
Picturing Nick Clegg doing this made me literally lmao. Help me find it
Nick Clegg? He works for Facebook now:

Hopefully Biden wins in a landslide. But even if he does it’s a long time between Nov 3 election and Jan 20 inauguration.

Bullet points
1 don’t expect results election night
2 do call it a coup (if the govt stops counting votes, declares a winner who did not get the most votes, or allows someone to stay in power who didn’t win the election)
3 know that coups have been stopped By regular folks
4 be ready to act quickly (Nov 4!) and not alone
5 focus on widely shared democratic values, not individuals
6 convince people not to freeze or just go along
7 commit to actions that reinforce rule of law, accountability and non-violence
8 yes a coup can happen in the United States
9 center in calm not fear (this one could be tough)
10 deter a coup before the election

Consider taking this pledge
1 we will vote
2 we will not accept election results until all votes are counted
3 we will nonviolently take to the streets of a coup is attempted
4 if we need to, we will shut down this country to preserve the democratic process

Just in time for a new round of Republican voter suppression on minority voters that are likely to vote Democrat, the court order consent decree against the Republican Party ends. They are now free to hire police officers to show up armed at polling places to scare off voters as Trump publicly ranted.

I'm disappointed. I thought when I read the thread title we were going to revisit the behaviour of a certain "well known bird at the Diplomacy Caper" and how he stole my Lawfully possessed Liverpool, the rogue.

Republicans in California caught breaking state laws to illegally harvest ballots to prove election fraud is possible. I hope they like jail.

Republican party denies hiring people to intimidate voters at the polls after months of ads too hire them.

Republicans video tape drop off ballots to claim fraud. No proof that laws were violated.
