Good to see bipartisan success...even if small!

S'Klallam, Chimacum, Coastal Salish, Suquamish
David Gordon

It was fun watching the hearing with y'all!

Linda Bock, Stillaguamish, Duwamish, Coast Salish
Matthew Munsey

I guess the feeling is mutual - because they can't wait to hear all about her exploits.
Jeremy Chase
29:14
For SURE should be treated as an hostile witness. I wouldn’t know why to expect anything else.
Jeremy Chase
34:08
Unreal. Holy cow everyone. Buckle up this year!
Jeremy Street
34:18
Republicans of Spokane county along with the opponent of Vicky Dalton, McCaslin, are pushing for an audit here.
Yvonne Brandon
34:50
"Team Normal"
Diane Gordon
35:04
If they succeed can we build a wall?
Jeremy Chase
35:11
We’re at a point of no return. As Cindy said, every time they lose, it’s rigged.
Christy Bear
37:54
This one really scares me -- hard to believe that they ruled this way!
Jeremy Street
39:11
I wonder how many Supreme Court Justices went to private schools?
Robert Brown
39:31
This Supreme Court is the most activist court ever, something which Republicans used to rail against. Now that they agree with the decisions, activism is a good thing.
Jeremy Chase
39:47
@Jeremy all. All of them.
Christy Bear
40:02
Or how many SCOTUS judges went to private religious schools…
Kathryn Lewandowsky
40:52
I wonder if the state gives private schools money that they can hold them accountable to use certified teachers?
Jeremy Street
41:42
Or not discriminate in hiring.
Robert Brown
41:47
The upside potential of their Roe v. Wade decision could be that Democrats will romp in November.
Brian Emanuels
42:14
🙏
Jeremy Chase
42:45
They already do!!! Jesus.
Heidi Dragneff
44:48
I looked this up because I was curious…Clarence Thomas - CatholicStephen Breyer - JewishSamuel Alito - CatholicSonia Sotomayor - CatholicElena Kagan - JewishNeil Gorsuch - CatholicBrett Kavanaugh - CatholicAmy Coney Barrett - Catholic
Heidi Dragneff
45:10
not a very religiously diverse court
D Scott Pierce
45:54
"God forbid" the evangelical right find out that information... ;-)
Matthew Munsey
46:01
Wow, and to think some Catholics talk like they're some kind of oppressed minority in this country.
Heidi Dragneff
46:06
oops, I forgot John Roberts - he's also Catholic
Heidi Dragneff
46:40
crazy right?!? I don't think it was an accident.....
Jeremy Street
46:52
What is Clarence Thomas's religion?
Heidi Dragneff
47:23
Catholic
Jeremy Chase
47:43
@DScott It’s a short line. Evangelicals are behind the Federalist Society. Which, as you know, recommended the last five Judges.
Robert Brown
48:45
Jeremy, except Ketanji Brown Jackson.
Brian Emanuels
49:09
What happened to the proposal to switch KC to Ranked Choice Voting?
Matthew Munsey
49:25
@Robert: surely he means the last 5 who are still on the current court... new term starts in September.
Jeremy Chase
49:37
Yep, yep!
Jeremy Street
52:40
How do you win against a right wing incumbent (CMR)- go middle or go left. We need help!
Heidi Dragneff
52:55
what was the name of Michael's org?

Melvin Mackey

Top two in Washington has problems when we don’t use Ranked Choice Voting to select the top two — also should be top four or five.
Yvonne Brandon

😲😲😲
Kathryn Lewandowsky
01:03:42
America, Always a dollar short and a day late!
Jeremy Street
01:04:23
What went wrong in 2016??
Jeremy Chase
01:04:40
Lol
Yvonne Brandon
01:09:00
OMG!
Robert Brown
01:09:24
2016 was a strange year.
Bob Findlay
01:10:36
FYI Wynona Le Doux is the fictitious character from a mystery book series
Kathryn Lewandowsky
01:10:47
That could easily happen.
Jeremy Chase
01:10:47
2016 was one of the first BIG experiments in the hacking of the American mind. There had never been a greater influx of misinformation before that point.
Kathryn Lewandowsky
01:11:01
When candidates are older than dirt!
Bob Findlay
01:13:10
Lol Yang better not run again (and I endorsed him in the primary!)
Matthew Munsey
01:13:40
That was actually Doug Mastriano, but hopefully he becomes merely a footnote for the history books... or is sentenced to the time he deserves in a federal hoosegow.
Bob Findlay
01:13:55
Ugh that guy
Daniel Lewinski
01:14:22
Winona LaDuke is (also a real person) an American economist, environmentalist, writer and industrial hemp grower, known for her work on tribal land claims and preservation, as well as sustainable development. And she was involved in protests against the Enbridge Oil Pipeline No. 3 in northern MN
Bob Findlay
01:15:21
My bad
Robert Brown
01:15:43
This is highly interesting. I have to leave, sadly. I will look forward to your updates, Cindy.
Yvonne Brandon
01:18:22
Excellent presnetaton!
David Gordon
01:18:52
yes, really, really excellent!!!!
Barbara Hill
01:19:58
Don't think we would have known that the "wrong" presentation was up! Still great!
Jeremy Street
01:20:46
I don't believe any party will agree to anything that will be to their advantage. Just sayin.
Jeremy Street
01:23:32
Correction: I don't believe any party will agree to anything that will NOT be to their advantage.

01:24:53
Legal certainty is not helpful with people who feel no obligation to follow the law, particularly if those people are powerful.
Matthew Munsey
01:26:01
Laws? Laws are for chumps. (DJT, in his mind even if never actually voiced)
Jeremy Chase
01:26:57
Exactly. Exactly. He’s never been held accountable to anything, so it’s little wonder.
Jeremy Street
01:28:01
DOJ needs some courage like the people at the hearing yesterday!
Yvonne Brandon
01:32:40
TERRIFFIED!
Jeremy Street
01:34:23
Maybe we will have outside players enter into the confusion.
Bob Findlay
01:35:21
Business is too busy greasing both palms and hoping for the best either way 🤷🏾‍♀️🤪
Daniel Lewinski
01:35:32
It was mentioned that 3 Constitutional Amendments have issues, and then later the correction action (clarity/specificity) is provided by legislation, will that create the necessary guardrails that will withstand ape=al to the current partisan Supreme(ly corrupt) Court?
Jeremy Street
01:38:01
What about the military intervening?
Yvonne Brandon
01:41:14
How can we message this risk, so that it resonates with ordinary voters, and they pressure their lawmakers to take action....NOW?
Dwight Rousu, Redmond, coastal salish
01:41:20
Is direct popular vote completely out of the picture?
Cindy Black, Fix Democracy First
01:44:17
HI Folks - To save time, I just spinned the wheel for the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream coupons for a free pint. Here's the winners: Kate ButtAruna BhutaBarb WilliamsShirly VicallaAlison Feher
David Gordon
01:44:56
Fraud! Reject the Ben and Jerry ice cream winners! Alternate slate!
Bob Findlay
01:44:57
I hear what you are saying Ned, and actually capitalizing on right wing electoral suspicion makes sense to encourage bipartisan support, at the same time isn't so much of their understanding based on false narratives, suspicion of vote-by-mail, "Enhanced ID" etc that still hard to get them process and get on board real threats
Bob Findlay
01:45:16
?
Yvonne Brandon
01:45:36
We need to message to "Team Normal."
Cindy Black, Fix Democracy First
01:46:39
@David - LOL!!
Yvonne Brandon
01:47:23
@David 😂 Good one!
Jeremy Street
01:50:08

My two final thoughts: even if we can get average R voter on board true reform, right wing strategists will torpedo, 2) how can we get this to Biden/Harris???
Yvonne Brandon
02:03:20
Thank you! This was outstanding!
USAIVA, Rich Stevenson
02:03:24
Power out earlies. Late.
Heidi Dragneff
