West Virginia’s removals deserve close scrutiny. Some voters in the state have reported problems including being unable to access their records online, and counties reported differing remedies for restoring the registrations of those removed by mistake.

If you're over 40, think about this long and hard before you step into that votin' booth. Do you want to hand over your hard-earned retirement and healthcare to the GOP and their mega donors?

We knew all along this costly deployment of troops to stop the "caravans" was a colossal waste, fraud and abuse of power -- a transparent effort to affect Tuesday's election. The Army has now confirmed it. How much will this cost us?

Obama in Indiana: "They promised they were going to take on corruption in Washington. Instead, they racked up enough indictments to field a football team."

Mike Bloomberg urges Americans to vote Democratic in a new national TV ad.

New: Sons of murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi told CNN in an exclusive interview how important it is for their father’s body to be returned to them so they can give him a proper Islamic burial: “All we want right now is to bury him in Medina, with the rest of his family”

Obama in Indiana: "America is at a crossroads. The health care of millions is on the ballot. A fair shake for working families is on the ballot. Perhaps, most importantly, the character of our country." (via ABC)

“This is where I have a fundamental difference with my opponent...I believe that government has a responsibility to do for us together what we can’t do for ourselves as individuals, and addressing the opioid epidemic is a prime example of that."

Note to Senator Tillis: There is nothing “courageous” about voting to gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

Someone is quite insecure lately; much of it revolving around his popularity status, and African Americans. Just the other day he was boasting about his crowd sizes being bigger than Obama’s ever were (a falsehood), and now this below.

'He said jobs were coming back': the Trump voters who feel cheated ‘I wanted to believe in Mr Trump,’ one manufacturing worker laid off after 30 years says. ‘This has been a slap in the face’

When you wear offensive Halloween costumes, depicting "MAGA wall" and reducing Mexican people to cultural stereotypes, you aren't "Making America Great Again," but creating embarrassing fodder for #Russia's state TV. The Kremlin eats it up. Be ashamed, be very ashamed.

What's happening right now in North Dakota is just a disgrace, a totally open effort to prevent the state's American Indian population from voting. Watch this.

Restrictions on voting have been virtually all imposed by Republicans, reflecting rising partisanship and the weakening of the Voting Rights Act by the Supreme Court in 2013.

The teachers who dressed up as ‘Mexicans’ and a MAGA wall for Halloween have been placed on administrative leave.

The President says Russia stole the election

NEW: With 2 days until Election Day, Republican Sec. of State Brian Kemp, who is overseeing Georgia's elections as he runs for governor, announces that his office is investigating state’s Democratic Party while offering no evidence to back up allegation.

No comment needed. Racism is rampant in the Trump administration.

I'll never forget when Brian Kemp accused DHS of trying to hack his office at the end of the Obama administration and then DHS's inspector general completely debunked his baseless accusation.

The U.S. bears heavy responsibility for starving millions of Yemeni children. Trump is waging war on innocent babies through his Saudi business partners while Congress does nothing. We cannot let this stand. Only a Democratic Congress can help stop this humanitarian catastrophe

Share this with any friends or family members who think their vote doesn't matter.

Counter-point: This poll does not exist

Tea Pain’s not certain of many things, but he’s sure about this. If we don’t show up and Trump holds the House and Senate, he will not leave a shred of our democracy intact. Get out and vote now, cause there won’t be a “next time” if you don’t!

Capt. Sully Sullenberger says he's voting for Democrats to save our democracy from a President who is not capable or willing to change.

Two days before the midterm elections, Brian Kemp's office says that it has opened an investigation into the Georgia Democratic Party for possible cyber crimes. The office will not specify any of the alleged cyber crimes the party may have carried out.

America is plagued by right-wing violence. Pundits need to stop calling it a "both sides" issue.

Georgia Republican Kemp announces surprise investigation accusing Democrats of hacking voter registration system

Trump knows he should be talking more about the economy. He doesnt seem to care.

Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum says President Trump, his opponent Ron DeSantis and others should be "careful" with rhetoric: "The fact that, that kind of rhetoric and disagreement is now leading to political violence ... is unacceptable"

Utahns mourn loss of 'genuine hero’: North Ogden Mayor Brent Taylor killed in Afghanistan in apparent insider attack

"To be clear: Seeking asylum at the border is not illegal"

Not only is the president’s top economic advisor wrong about our bill to raise the minimum wage to $15, he also wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Democrats are fighting for fair pay and affordable health insurance while the GOP pledges obstruction.

DeSantis says he would have vetoed Parkland gun bill if he were governor

McConnell Defends Lawsuit to Undo Pre-Existing Condition Protection


Another killer in the US with a clear history of misogyny. But, let’s keep talking about how feminism “threatens men” while men around the world continue to beat and kill women.

The election is almost here and it’s time to use your power and VOTE. It’s going to be the people who show up that will have a say in the direction of our country. Pick 5 friends to be in your #VotingSquad and make a plan to get to the polls Tuesday

While Trump fixates on the supposed threat posed by a handful of migrants fleeing Central American violence, his government closes its eyes to the very real threat of violence posed by domestic, home-grown, right-wing white nationalists (some of his base).

Joe’s right, Rohrabacher is lying when he states he supports pre-existing condition protections. He voted to eliminate protections 17 times. Fact: We need to expand affordable health care to every American, not cause more harm to those already suffering.

“Not only did Israel’s leaders choose Trump over American Jews, but they did so easily, naturally, without hesitation, leaping to defend a political leader who is actively & openly fanning the flames of hatred that now has an unprecedented death toll.”

US consulting firms get rich off a Saudi regime that willfully murdered Jamal Khashoggi and has been responsible for deaths of thousands of innocent Yemenis.

An estimated 12 percent of students at Middleton Heights Elementary School are Hispanic. Can you imagine what it’s like to be one of those little kids?

Which party is really fiscally responsible?

Trump’s border deployments could cost $200 million by year-end

"In the best interests of the court." @azcentral does a deep dive into how Maricopa County's Republican-run justice system, including Sheriff Joe Arpaio, released that cop-killing monster from the Trump video back into society.

vote like its the last free and fair election this country may ever have

“I feel that there is some irony in these extra hurdles being added on our people, the first people of this country, in having to prove your citizenship.”

Outright corruption. There’s no other word for this. Conflicts of interest and ethics violations aren’t strong enough. This is a pledge to engage in corruption, in which winning political power is abused to generate private profits.

According to these federal spending records, Melania Trump spent $95,050 at her hotel for a short day visit. This is quite the feat considering a spokeswoman for Trump said she was in Cairo for just six hours and didn’t spend the night there.

National Crime Agency Lynne Owens tells Arron Banks there "will be consequences" for defying British law by plotting with our enemies and using Russian money to undermine the British people. With friends like these...!

Taunting Tweet By Trump Figured In Ruling Allowing Emoluments Suit To Go Forward

It's crunch time for Trump vs. the world on Iran sanctions

Just noting that while “pardoned” Sheriff Joe Arpaio was busy looking for undocumented immigrants, his office was so sloppy about gun safety that they “lost” more than a dozen firearms, including a fully automatic weapon just used to wound four officers

Remember that the president’s recent call for 15,000 troops at the border to respond to migrant caravan would exceed the 14,000 US troops currently in Afghanistan fighting America’s longest war.

After the Miami rally, President Barack Obama made an impromptu stop at a taco restaurant with Sen. Bill Nelson and Andrew Gillum in Wynwood and said hi to locals hanging out ... also told them to vote.

Judge rules against Georgia voting restrictions that affected new U.S. citizens.

Popovich wears Beto O'Rourke cap at team practice

Review: Trump did not invent American bigotry. But new books argue that he released it – and he has no incentive to extinguish it.

Obama: "They're telling you the existential threat to America is a bunch of poor refugees 1,000 miles away. They're even taking our brave troops away from their families for a political stunt at the border. The men and women of our military deserve better than that."

So the entire premise of Trump’s racist video is a lie. Trump pardoned Arpaio.

#RememberTheTime the @realDonaldTrump WH Budget Dir said feeding the elderly wasn’t worth doing? But the rich needed 1.5T in tax cuts?

One Trump campaign manager in jail and another Trump campaign manager under investigation? But this has nothin' to do with the Trump campaign, right?

Children of the caravan

Barack Obama: "Don't be Charlie Brown - don't fall for the okey doke. Don't be bamboozled. Don't be hoodwinked because when you get distracted, while you're distracted with all this stuff they're making up, they're also robbing you blind."

"Nobody's done more for 'Christians' or 'evangelicals' or frankly 'religion' than I have."

Democratic House candidate MJ Hegar from Texas responded to her Republican opponent comparing her campaign to a war with an ad saying he doesn't know "shit" about war.

Opinion: The military deployment to the border is a shameless, and dangerous, stunt

Trump’s is making the long nightmare of Nixon’s Watergate seem like a brief idyllic daydream. History will treat Nixon’s moral failures as relatively less troubling than Trump’s sustained and growing decadence, deviousness and self-delusive behavior. Nixon=corrupt; Trump=evil.

Trump warns of violence if GOP loses midterms

The Caravan - SNL

Huge drop in enforcement of corporate wrongdoing from the final 20 months of the Obama administration to the first 20 months of the Trump presidency

Barack Obama: "A president doesn't get to decide on his own who's an American citizen and who's not. That's not how the Constitution of the United States works. That's not how the Bill of Rights works. That's not how our democracy works."

From Parkland student

“The man who shot dead two women at a yoga studio in Tallahassee before killing himself was a far-right extremist and self-proclaimed misogynist who railed against women, black people, and immigrants in online videos and songs.”

Social Security and Medicare are two more pre-existing conditions Republicans don’t want to cover.

Former President Barack Obama: "They try to scare you with all kinds of boogeymen. Try to scare you with divisive issues that they can make up. They'll try to disenfranchise people. And take away their right to vote."

“Tuesday will be a relief. We will finally find out where we are in the surreal dystopia of the last two years. We will see, in a tangible way, what America now is.” Amen.

Ted Cruz called white nationalist Steve King today and reiterated his support. Unbelievable

In this century of declining population growth around the world, the US has a major advantage over China, Russia etc in our ability to attract immigrants (legal of course). Stop bashing immigrants! We need them to maintain our greatness.


Former President Barack Obama: "If you believe in the American Constitution, you gotta know that no one person can decide who is an American citizen and who's not."
