To anyone in despair: with your help, a #bluewave of vets are about to hit Congress and teach @realDonaldTrump that patriotism isn't dividing your fellow Americans, it's bringing them together in service to country. Be sure to register to vote & then help @votevets GOTV on Nov 6!


Meanwhile, Turkish officials have unearthed even more grim details of journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s alleged murder.

"John McCain would be rolling in his grave today if he saw this ad," Ammar Campa-Najjar says about an ad by his GOP opponent, Rep. Duncan Hunter, which labels him a "security risk. "I'm not a threat to national security, but I sure as heck am a threat to Duncan hunter's seat."

In apparently ordering the grisly killing of Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman wagered that the world would not miss another murdered journalist. So far, he has been spectacularly wrong

Today’s Judiciary Committee hearing, held during an extended recess to consider highly controversial nominees, is completely unprecedented. @chuckgrassley and @senatemajldr continue to do everything they can to pack our courts with dangerous, anti-choice, anti-LGBTQ judges.

Hey! Guess which Senate Majority Leader has close family ties to Saudi Public Investment Fund money?

President @BarackObama doesn't have time for these 7 excuses not to vote.

Sadly, this fascinating podcast from BBC's, The Inquiry features #JamalKhashoogi As you'd expect it is WELL worth the listen. In fact, it's chilling.

Donald Jr. has lost his mind. To call Khashoogi a terrorist is insane. We know who the real terrorist is in the world and it's not Santa Claus. Trump Jr. Boosts Smear Tying Missing Journalist Jamal Khashoggi to Islamic Terrorism

Student debt may be a crisis now, but soon it may be a catastrophe

Widespread reporting a journalist was beaten & butchered. President Trump: "Here we go again with, you know, you’re guilty until proven innocent. We just went through that with Justice Kavanaugh and he was innocent all the way as far as I’m concerned."

WASHINGTON (AP) — Trump tells AP that Saudi Arabia being blamed for missing journalist is another case of 'guilty until proven innocent'

Just spoke with the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia who totally denied any knowledge of what took place in their Turkish Consulate. He was with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo...

Dear @SecPompeo: Turkey provided to the US the audio of the murder of Khashoggi in the office of the Saudi consul general. What about this audio do you not understand?

Robert Mueller is expected to issue findings on core aspects of his Russia probe soon after the November midterm elections, officials tell

Donald Trump claims he only licensed his name for real estate projects developed by others. But an investigation of a dozen Trump deals shows deep family involvement in projects that often involved deceptive practices.

Turkey shared the record/s with both Saudi Arabia and US

To task your own son with cleaning up your messes and putting him at considerable legal risk while doing so is an unbelievable fact to get your mind around.

The New York Times has published the results of a forensic video and photographic analysis digging into the identity of the 15-man Saudi team that Turkey says may have been involved with the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"Fascist skinhead groups have wreaked havoc in the U.S. for decades, but scholars of fascism have noted that those groups pose limited political threats—unless a mainstream political party embraces them."

UN spokesman say the High Commissioner for Human Rights wants answers from Saudi Arabia and Turkey about the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Cambridge Analytics is working hard tonight for @TedCruz & clearly the oil and gas industry. Look at these identical tweets at identical times from various accounts. Not original human responses.

Cruz criticizes O'Rourke for supporting Mr. Trump's impeachment, calling it a "partisan circus." "Really interesting to hear you talk about a partisan circus," O'Rourke said in response, to laughter from the audience

Let’s not forget Pompeo overruled State Dept experts to ensure we’d keep providing weapons and refueling services to the Saudis as they continue bombing Yemen. Between that and the Kashoggi murder cover-up, it’s becoming clear you get a lot of death for your cash at Trump hotels.

The Trump family lied to push their deals around the world. And they profited.

Where do U.S. weapons sales to Saudi Arabia fit in the story of the possible murder of Jamal Khashoggi? My colleague @dshesgreen has a nice explainer

If the Democrats don’t get into office come Nov 6th, Mitch McConnell said kiss Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid goodbye.

Why is the Trump administration cleaning up Saudi Arabia’s mess?

Pompeo says “Saudis committed to complete probe into Khashoggi case”. This is absurd. How can the country accused of committing the atrocity investigate itself?!?

"Three months before the 2016 election, a small group gathered at Trump Tower to meet with Donald Trump Jr.... The emissary, George Nader, told Trump that the princes who led Saudi Arabia and UAE were eager to help his father win election as president."

Ted Cruz and Beto O’Rourke square off in final debate before midterm election

President Donald Trump is criticizing the mounting global condemnation of Saudi Arabia over the case of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi. He is comparing it to allegations of sexual assault leveled against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Every single one of us deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
