This groups of cops, who conspired to have the chief ousted, were not fans of Buttigieg, even as they hoped to use him to accomplish their goal. One described him as “that little fucking squirt.”

A group funded by some of the richest people in the world, the Waltons, just disrupted an @elizabethforma  speech on the 1881 Atlanta washerwomen strike. Can’t make this stuff up.

The organization is 100% funded by the Walton Foundation. Carpenter had claimed to reporters the group started organically a few weeks ago in response to Warren’s charter plan.

Warren tells me she met with them after the rally and had a nice conversation

The police can record their own police lines, yes

And settlements for Pete’s firings

Strong statement on Bolivia from @RepHankJohnson , joined by @Ocasio2018  and a handful of others. Should be 200+ Dems on this

Likely relevant piece of trivia here: Johnson was staffed for several years by @ossoff  , who, contrary to his rep on twitter as a squish, was actually an unusually progressive Hill staffer on national security and foreign policy issues

One way to keep children from not dying in prison camps is to not put children in prison camps

Kavanaugh even lied about his connections to Yale: “I have no connections there. I got there by busting my tail.” See this yearbook. He was legacy; his grandfather went there. What pathetic perjury.

Rep. Andy Barr invited AOC to come meet coal miners in his district mad that the Green New Deal will take away their jobs. She accepted. Turns out there are no active coal mines in Barr's district because it's 2019, not 1919. So now Barr is uninviting AOC.

Evo Morales’ party, MAS, controls 2/3 of the legislature. The new self-declared ruler is promising to arrest those democratically elected lawmakers. US media utterly silent.

At $70 billion/year, Warren’s universal child care program would cost roughly what Congress added casually to the Pentagon budget with no debate or even rationale

On top of everything else, the Buttigieg campaign used a stock photo from Kenya to promote its Frederick Douglass Plan for Black America
