In an interview aired on Monday, CNN’s Randi Kaye talked to elderly residents of a Florida housing complex who allegedly had their party registrations switched from Democratic to Republican without their permission by voter registration volunteers — focusing in particular on the plight of a man named Juan Salazar.
“This is the old card,” said Kaye. “And it says, right here, Democratic Party.”
“Yeah,” said Salazar.
“And the new card says Republican Party of Florida,” continued Kaye. “And that’s not what you want?”
“No,” said Salazar. “I want to be Democrat.”
The resolution condemns Cheney and Kinzinger for their involvement in the January 6 select committee in the House, which is dedicated to investigating the circumstances and causes of the insurrection. Though it doesn’t formally expel either member from the party, it all but does so in practice.
The resolution, which was obtained by the New York Times, states that the RNC would “immediately cease any and all support of them as members of the Republican Party for their behavior which has been destructive to the institution of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Republican Party and our republic, and is inconsistent with the position of the Conference.”
Neil Young to Spotify workers: ‘Get out before it eats your soul’
Young continues stand against streaming company, pinpointing CEO Daniel Ek for criticism
In a message posted to his website, Young wrote:
To the musicians and creators in the world, I say this: You must be able to find a better place than Spotify to be the home of your art.
To the workers at Spotify, I say [co-founder and chief executive officer] Daniel Ek is your big problem – not Joe Rogan. Ek pulls the strings. Get out of that place before it eats up your soul. The only goals stated by Ek are about numbers – not art, not creativity.
FASCIST SCOTUS puts another nail in the coffin of voting rights as Roberts sides with liberal minority in 5-4 decision
In 2013 Supreme Court Chief Justice John Robertseffectively declared racism in America was over, as he penned the majority opinion in Shelby County v. Holder, a case that neutered the historic Voting Rights Act of 1965.
On Monday Chief Justice Roberts sided with the Court’s three remaining liberals in a case that pounded yet another nail in the coffin of the Voting Rights Act.
“How dangerous is it for the Republican National Committee to whitewash the events of that day and simply call it ‘legitimate political discourse?'” asked anchor Wolf Blitzer.
“Oh, it is extremely dangerous and it is not even — it’s, if there was a word even more intense than dangerous I would use that,” said Kinzinger. “It is not a far thought, Wolf, to think that some day, some militia shows up somewhere to do something and then some countermilitia, and at that point that is how you end up in a civil war. I never would say that we would ever have ended in that position, but I now believe it is a real possibility that we have to be wide-eyed as we walk into so we don’t have that happen again.”
“You fear, potentially, there could be a civil war here in the United States?” Blitzer pushed him.
“I do,” said Kinzinger. “And a year ago I would have said no, not a chance. But I’ve come to realize when we don’t see each other as fellow Americans, when we begin to separate into cultural identities, when we begin to basically give up everything that we believe so we could be part of a group, and then when you have leaders that come and abuse that faithfulness of that group to violent ends, as we saw on January 6, we would be naïve to think it is not possible here.”
