Reports about ICE detaining American citizens have included the Neo-Nazi code number 1488, apparently a signal from within ICE to fellow white supremacists .... but these numbers are then passed on, apparently uncritically, by news sources. (See also: the DHS report which restated the "fourteen words" and 1488.)

Brett Kavanaugh, the GOP Supreme Court nominee, has turned out to be a dumpster fire of scandals, one of which is an attempted rape committed in his high school days.

Team Kavanaugh and Team Orrin Hatch floated an absurd theory today, via Ed Whelan who was jumping the gun on it, that Brett Kavanaugh had a "doppelganger" - an evil twin who committed the attempted rape instead. This was a middle school teacher named Chris Garrett who had previously signed the letter supporting Kavanaugh's character. Heck of a way to thank him for that.

Dr. Christine Ford, whom Kavanaugh had attempted to rape 38 years earlier, noted in a statement that she knew both men and had visited Garrett in the hospital - and would not mix up who attacked her. For days, Kavanaugh and his associates had been suggesting that Ford was "mixed up" and that Kavanaugh wasn't at the party at all, laying track for this desperate "An Evil Twin Did It" nonsense.

Republicans will push through Kavanaugh anyway, as they know Kavanaugh will undo Roe Vs. Wade and any legislation that actually helps human beings for the next three+ decades in the Supreme Court.

this drunk wealthy white man throwing an embarrassing tantrum because someone might say no to him once in his life is the entirety of what the Republican party has ever stood for. there has never been anything else. they just stopped pretending that dignity or morality was involved once they realized their horrible base didn't care

Lindsey Graham’s argument that the fact that a person is successful and powerful proves he didn’t do bad things in the past is really conservatism boiled down to its essence.

Taylor Swift - who has never stated much in the way of political beliefs previously - speaks out about the upcoming election in Tennessee.
