The resource itself is designed around the main points of inquiry – how the select committee conducts its investigative work – which outlines the main points of the campaign to reverse the election. The committee’s investigation teams are color-coded names (Gold, Blue, Purple, Red and Green); This primer in turn highlights key facts and findings according to the same organizational structure.

This resource was created as a collaboration between Just Security and Protect Democracy.

On Biden’s Gun Safety Speech:

Misogni and the limits of our attention
Struggling under our noses
Meanwhile, #MeToo has grown and established in the United States on the back of its framing as a celebrity phenomenon. I see this as a holisticization of the issue. High profile abusers and high profile victims illuminate the news cycle. They allow news organizations to turn into a compelling narrative that compels a broader social reality. There is nothing wrong with that. Or to put it another way, it can be irresistible, at least to some extent. The 2017-18 revelations focused on one fundamental problem. They also helped motivate more people to be more active in forcing their communities to take the problem more seriously.
But, live by high profile stories, die by high profile stories. People smarter than me are writing now Johnny Depp’s defamation suit against Amber Heard as the #MeToo’s death knell. One could argue that the beginning of the end of #MeToo, at least in the sense of a movement that felt very powerful, was very conducive to being on the wrong side of the prevailing movement in history, the 2018 Cavanoff confirmation process. Despite this, whatever consciousness was created, for at least some people, by the graphic documents of the fact that rich and powerful men spent decades in (mostly) overcoming the mistreatment of women, day by day fears. And violence is a reality. The experience of many women has not changed. At all.

RNC’s Inch Ground Game
Inside a secret, dubious and extremely offline attempt to convert minorities into Republicans
The RNC Community Center model is the latest attempt by Republicans to bring non-white voters to court, who have long abandoned the party and been haunted by its key representatives. But the whimsical return of the 2020 elections suggests an opportunity. According to a report by the Progressive Data Utility Catalyst, Biden’s share of the vote is eight percentage points lower than that of the Latinos compared to Hillary Clinton. As Vox reports, it represents “the most dramatic change in the major ethnic or racial groups observed over a four-year period.” The movement was spectacular in areas such as South Texas, where Five heavy Latino counties were flipped To Donald Trump.
Biden’s black American vote share has also dropped three points, and the GOP has outperformed Asian Americans and Native Americans. It was less than a success with non-white voters; The Republicans, who lost to Asian Americans by a margin of 27 percent, did their best with any major ethnic minority group. But with the massive increase in turnout in 2020, in the raw numbers, Republicans added a total of votes that once seemed impossible even for Polinanish.
The daughter of the slain Sandy Hook principal would like you to stop asking for autopsy photos
Some gun control lawyers think that showing graphic photos of the massacre would impress lawmakers. The victims of the shooting asked him to refrain from asking.
“Stop asking me for autopsy photos,” LaFerti tweeted on Tuesday. “The courage of the people who are demanding and demanding the release of photos of Sandy Hook’s crime scene is immense. I envy people who do not understand and do not understand the weight of this question. ”

Bill Barr may retire as Attorney General, but he is still working hard to ruin the office.
Shame on the country in the private sector is more profitable anyway.
Were you under the impression that a lawyer’s job is to investigate violations of the law and secure sentences? Well, let the former top law enforcement officer of the land let you violate this notion.
I am very proud of John Durham. And I take responsibility for his appointment. I think he and his team have done an extraordinarily capable job of digging out very important facts and presenting a compelling case before a jury. And the fact is that he – while not succeeding in getting punishment from her DC Jury – I think he has done some other important work, which has brought out the truth in two important areas. At first I think he played a central role in the beginning of Hillary’s campaign as a dirty trick, complete. Rusgate collusion narrative And blowing its flames.
The first step is to create a media account No. The prosecutor’s job, however, is to try to spin the Mueller report as Barr acquits Trump. Is
