Continuing this post, Cenk describes these 5 tactics. Watch the video below for details. Of course it will take guts for the Dems to do these things so we the people need to harass them continually to take action. Don't let them get away with claiming there's nothing they can do.
1. Ask for unanimous consent of every vote in the Senate from now until Nov. 30.
2. Don't raise the debt ceiling.
3. Block the resolution to fund the budget.
4. Start another impeachment hearing.
5. Threaten to expand the Supreme Court with more Justices after the election, the first of which will be Hillary Clinton.
The accelerating steps toward full fascism in plain view. Can't wait to see what he and Twit do now.
Especially since it was they who sent in violent agitators to justify their fascist play.
"The Department of Justice on Monday released a list of cities it has deemed 'anarchist jurisdictions' under President Donald Trump's instructions earlier this month to review federal funding to local governments in places where violence or vandalism has occurred during protests."
Krystal makes a good case that the Repugs breaking their own rule to not approve another Supreme Corp nominee in an election year is the rule rather than the exception. They no longer have any principles, instead constantly and consistently violating them to what's most expedient at hand to win. She further makes the point that Dems must be willing to do the same or they will continue to lose these battles and the long-term war for power. You cannot win by always playing by the rules when the opposition has no regard for them whatsoever. So will the Dems make good on their threat of eliminating the filibuster and court packing if they win the Senate?
In his FB post copied below these are the results of Presidential elections. Not only must we stop Twit and the Repugs from nominating and approving another of their ilk, it's why Dems must win the Presidency in November. THIS is what we're voting for.

She comments on McConnell's pledge to replace RBG as soon as possible. And the corrupt Repugnantan machine that enables Twit. We must fiercely fight back with everything we have. "Now is not the moment for cynicism" (4:45).
She brings home the stark differences in this election and as usual hits the nail on the head.
"November is about survival. Voting for Joe Biden is no longer
about whether you agree with him. It's a vote to let our democracy live
another day. [...] On the left, there's a lot of—there's a huge diversity, right? And we
get mad at each other. That's the way it is because it's incredibly
frustrating. I get incredibly frustrated. You all know I get incredibly
frustrated with my own party, too. We all have our disagreements. And
that's fine because we all recognize that November—frankly I wish it
wasn't like this; it only serves to highlight the brokenness of our
entire system—but whether we like it or not, November's about survival.
November's about survival."
And the absolute necessity for the Green New Deal. From his FB post:
"What does the future look like if we do not get our act together? Look at the unprecedented wildfires on the West Coast. Look at the increasing number of climate refugees. A Green New Deal is our moral responsibility."
