DOJ Forced Apple to Reveal Data from Two House Democrats as Part of Trump's Leaker Crusade

It recently came to light that the Trump-era Department of Justice quietly seized phone records of journalists at the Washington Post, CNN, and the New York Times to suss out their sources as part of the administration’s rabid crackdown on leakers. Well, apparently the witch hunt didn’t stop there: In 2017 and 2018, a…Read more...

Rachel Maddow Warns What May Come Next From Trump Supporters

"I’m not trying to be scary about this but I find the place we are in here to be scary," said the MSNBC anchor.

"But there’s a deeper reason why a cerebral cultural figure like [J.D.] Vance would convert to Trump-style trolldom."

"In today’s political and media culture, trolling is the shortest, simplest path to a level of attention you’d never get any other way. His fiery Twitter account is just the capstone on the gradual reinvention of J.D. Vance.... When Hillbilly Elegy was released in 2016, it was taken as a kind of Rosetta Stone to a world many in the left had never encountered, and Vance became a rare bipartisan figure that liberals could at once praise, pity and understand.... But...Vance became a Trump suppor...

Gillmor Gang: Walk the Dinosaur

Clubhouse hosted another excellent conversation between Josh Constine and Facebook’s audio czar Fidji Simo. The format continues to sparkle, as I was once again forced to choose between MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow or Lawrence O’Donnell and just plain audio. JPA won going away. The talk was crisp and the strategies thick with optimism about the creator economy. Monetization, priming the emergent pump, etc. If this were the Gold Rush, it would be blue skies ahead for picks and shovels and pans. It re...

Vaccines should return life to normal, not more of the same

Since the creation of Operation Warp Speed, we’ve been told the ticket out of the pandemic is getting the population vaccinated against COVID-19. It would be then, and only then, when life could return to normal. As part of the campaign to get us to take the shot, a bevy of politicians, news people, celebrities, and athletes have posted selfies getting jabbed in the arm. Even Facebook has offered up a special border that you can add to your profile picture, to let friends and family know that yo...

Stop Shaming Vaccinated People for Socializing

As the U.S. speeds ever closer toward mass vaccination against covid-19, a curious trend has started to emerge on social media and elsewhere: well-intentioned people downplaying the benefits of vaccination, often by arguing that vaccinated people still pose a major transmission risk and that they shouldn’t do things…Read more...

AOC says Biden's infrastructure plan is way too small - she wants a $10 trillion package

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Tom Williams/CQ-Roll Call, Inc via Getty Images An ideal infrastructure plan would spend $10 trillion, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said. The plan Biden unveiled Wednesday is "encouraging" in scope but can be bigger, she said on MSNBC's "Rachel Maddow Show." A larger plan could create tens of millions of jobs and vastly improve housing and health care, she said. See more stories on Insider's business page. President Joe Biden has repeatedly sa...

Matt Gaetz's claim that the DOJ's sex-trafficking probe into him is part of an extortion scheme doesn't add up

U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL). Samuel Corum/Getty Images Rep. Matt Gaetz said a DOJ investigation into whether he broke sex-trafficking laws is based on "lies" and "false" allegations. Gaetz said the allegations are part of a weeks-long attempt to extort his family for $25 million. But the DOJ launched its investigation late last summer, well before Gaetz said his family was first contacted in the alleged extortion scheme. See more stories on Insider's business page.

About that neckace.

I went out running this morning to catch the dawn...   ... and as I was running, I was thinking about the post I'd just put up at 6:23. (The photograph was taken at 6:45.) The post talked about a WaPo columnist who had pasted together a ramshackle argument that rested absurdly heavily on a couple things Trump's nominee for ambassador to Germany had said about how women look — that Hillary Clinton was "starting to look like Madeleine Albright" and that Rachel Maddow ought to "take a breath and p...

Prime civility bullshit headline from WaPo's Karen Tumulty: "The people concerned about Neera Tanden’s incivility sure didn’t seem to mind the Trump era’s."

I've been writing under the tag "civility bullshit" for years. It represents my longstanding opinion that calls for civility are always bullshit. Certainly in the area of politics, calls for civility always come out when the incivility is hurting your people. When somebody is deploying incivility effectively for your side, you hold your tongue and enjoy the damage. But let's consider the Neera Tanden problem. Her incivility is in the past. People on her side enjoyed the damage she inflicted at t...
