Peace in the Middle East may have to happen without America

1/12 What’s the point in getting vaccinated, if people are getting covid anyway? This is an emerging mindset among the unvaccinated since reports of so-called “breakthrough infections” have become more frequent. #velshi 

“Masking is a very important tool,” says @RickABright , on the issue of reinstating mandates. Whether you are vaccinated or not, “you will reduce the spread of that virus -- you will save lives.” PSA: Even if vaccinated, “you CAN still transmit that virus to others.” #VELSHI 

Americans’ right to vote is under attack and some people may not even know it. “If somebody is in survival mode, they may not necessarily be thinking or even be aware of the threat,” says @emarvelous . We “have to keep telling big truths in the face of a Big Lie.” #velshi 

The eviction moratorium set to expire today puts approximately 6.2 MILLION Americans at risk of being homeless. GA’s @RepHankJohnson  joins me 8aET to discuss extending the moratorium to the end of the year. #velshi 

As Republicans continue to downplay Jan 6th, it’s clear real crimes were committed. @BarbMcQuade  says “I would investigate this as a conspiracy, beginning before the election.” #velshi 

“It doesn’t matter if you’re tired. We need to finish this race.” Wisdom from Dr. @EbonyJHilton : “You can finish this race alive, you can finish this race with long COVID, or you can finish this race dead” #Velshi 

“Do not worry, I will be fine for telling the truth." Lt. Col. (Ret) @AVindman  tells his father on 11/19/2019, during the 1st impeachment of Donald Trump. His amazing book, “Here, Right Matters” releases this week & Mon 9pET he joins me on @maddow  for his first cable news intvw


Retweet if you paid more than $750 in federal income taxes.

I’m hit in the leg by a rubber bullet but am fine. State Police supported by National guard fired unprovoked into an entirely peaceful rally

So, @realDonaldTrump , you call my getting hit by authorities in Minneapolis on 5/30/20 (by a rubber bullet, btw, not a tear gas cannister) a “beautiful thing” called “law and order”. What law did I break while covering an entirely peaceful (yes, entirely peaceful) march?

Let’s just remember the 57 members of the Buffalo Emergency Response Team HAVEN’T retired from the police dept. They simply left that team. They are still getting salaries. Paid for by taxpayers. Maybe they should be fired.

It’s now confirmed that when Trump went on Hannity on Thursday night and said “I just went for a test, and we’ll see what happens, I mean, who knows,” he already has the positive result and knew he had coronavirus.

I’m the one who got hit and I don’t tell the story this much.

Robert E. Lee High School in Fairfax, VA is changing its name to John R. Lewis High School

BREAKING: More than 56,015 have been diagnosed with Coronavirus in the U.S. in the last 24 hours. This is a new record.

Trump said today “No true supporters of mine could ever endorse political violence.” On 9/18/20 he said: “This guy Welchi, he got hit in the knee with a canister of tear gas, and he went down. He was down. 'My knee. My knee.’ was the most beautiful thing.”
