If the 2024 Election Were Held Today, Democrats would be in Great Shape

Many things can happen between now and November 2024. However, if the political winds maintain their present trajectory, Democrats can probably expect a good night when the Presidential and Congressional races conclude in 2024. Why? Because what was once the Party of Lincoln is still in a civil war with itself with Donald Trump holding a significant portion of the Republican base within his control. If he wins the "Republican" Primary, many of what is left of the sane

Senate Finance Committee Should Request Trump’s Tax Records And Take Over The House Investigation Into IRS Presidential Audit Program

After an unnecessarily prolonged court battle, the House Ways and Means Committee is now in possession of six years of Donald Trump's tax returns. Trump's tax returns now in the hands of House Democrats after lengthy court battle: The Treasury Department said Wednesday that it had complied with last week's Supreme Court decision that paved the way for the returns to be handed over to the House Ways and Means Committee. The committee didn’t immediately respond to a request

The DNC Finally Did It! Good Riddance To The Iowa Caucuses

The Associated Press reports, Dems move to make South Carolina, not Iowa, 1st voting state in 2024: Democrats voted Friday to remove Iowa as the leadoff state on the presidential nominating calendar and replace it with South Carolina starting in 2024, a dramatic shakeup championed by President Joe Biden to better reflect the party’s deeply diverse electorate.

Donald Trump Openly Declares ‘Terminate the Constitution’ And Make Him Ruler (Updated)

If Attorney General Merrick Garland needed any more impetus to indict Donald Trump, this ought to do it. Trump is essentially saying "I did it before and I will do it again," like the serial killer who taunts police with "stop me before I kill again." Jason Easley reports, Trump Is Basically Promising A Coup In 2024: Trump is off the deep end and making it clear that he intends to try to take back power by any means

Secretary of State’s Office Asks Attorney General To Investigate Rogue Republican Cochise County Supervisors

It is a safe bet that our partisan hack lame-duck Attorney General Mark Brnovich aka "Nunchucks" (or is it numbnuts?) will do nothing to investigate the two rogue Republican Cochise County Supervisors who defied state law until the Court intervened and ordered them to act. This investigation will have to be taken up by our new attorney general Kris Mayes in January. CNN reports, Arizona secretary of state seeks investigation of Republicans who balked at certifying election: The Arizona

Governor Katie Hobbs Will Begin Her Administration With A Water (And Power) Crisis

Above: Glen Canyon Dam, Lake Powell. For eight years, climate denier Gov. Doug Ducey and his climate denier GQP-controlled Arizona legislature did little to nothing to address the impending water crisis long predicted to result from an historic megadrought in the western U.S. Their response was always "mañana." Last July Gov. Ducey signed landmark $1.2 billion ‘water protection’ bill: The legislation will put $1 billion in the new Water Infrastructure Finance Authority, allowing the state to buy and own

Once Again, AZ School Districts Call For A Special Session To Fix The Fiscal Cliff Crisis Of The Education Aggregate Spending Limit

Update to AZ School Districts Call For A Special Session To Fix The Fiscal Cliff Crisis Of The Education Aggregate Spending Limit (Sept. 2022). Still waiting! Gov. Doug Ducey is the self-proclaimed "education governor" (see above PR stunt). What a crock of shit. No Governor has been more successful in destroying public education in Arizona in pursuit of the GQP agenda to privatize public education into a for-profit private held business from which legislators can financially profit, even while
