Congratulations to @CharlieCookDC, iconic founder of the indispensable @CookPolitical Report on his extraordinary run. And another to the great @amyewalter, who will follow him as Editor-in-Chief. Amy, see you next week on the #AxeFiles! twitter.com/charliecookdc/…
Ortega of @Cubs strategically withheld his three homer day until AFTER the deadline to avoid becoming trade bait! twitter.com/cubs/status/14…
Elected officials, celebrities and infotainment stars who quietly gets vaccinated against COVID while scoring points with the anti-vax crowd by spreading doubts and conspiracy theories are the worst kind of scoudrels.
The real, imminent threat of death turns out to be a persuasive tool in getting the unvaccinated to roll up their sleeves. washingtonpost.com/health/2021/07…
.@ARizzo44 led the @Yankees to a win tonight in Miami. Homered and scored two runs.
Isn’t the very definition of corruption a president pressuring the Attorney General to lie and say the election was “corrupt?” nytimes.com/2021/07/30/us/…
Seeing one after another pillars of the championship @Cubs traded these past 24 hours been like watching the wrecking ball level your old house. You know you have to rebuild but there are lots of great memories. Thanks for those @javy23baez, @KrisBryant_23 & @ARizzo44!
Bye-bye to @javy23baez, one of the most exciting players of his generation. Thanks for memories like these: m.youtube.com/watch?v=MfvhjS…
Both of these guys should enjoy the short right field porches in their new baseball homes! twitter.com/davidaxelrod/s…
Who would have guessed a year ago that @ARizzo44 would be on the @Yankees today and @kschwarb12 on the @RedSox?
"Biden's progress on this bill suggests that to meet, listen, compromise and refrain from personalizing differences still has some currency in Washington," writes @davidaxelrod. cnn.com/2021/07/29/opi…

“The way President Biden has pursued a big, bipartisan infrastructure deal was roundly dismissed by many within his own party…Now, it seems, Biden's persistence -- and that of an intrepid group of moderate senators of both parties -- may be rewarded.” cnn.com/2021/07/29/opi…
.@ARizzo44 has been the solid oak tree in the heart of the @Cubs lineup for a decade. A great player; a quiet, classy leader; his acquisition in 2011 put the club on the road to a championship. And he was a great and generous citizen of Chicago. Thanks, Anthony!
This is a real test for @GOPLeader McCarthy, whose ambition to become Speaker is conspicuous and all-consuming. Does he cater to the crazy caucus/Trump & sanction @RepLizCheney & @RepKinzinger? If he does, he’ll further erode the party brand with suburban voters the @GOP needs. twitter.com/maxpcohen/stat…
One of my favorite #AxeFiles conversations was in ‘20 w/@mPinoe, the luminescent U.S. soccer star, whose legal battle for pay parity for the women’s team continues, even as they compete in Tokyo. Amazing person. Give it a listen! link.chtbl.com/8h5WT38a
I trust the experts at the CDC to follow the science but the C clearly doesn’t stand for COMMUNICATIONS! Too little has been done to foreshadow and explain the changing directives that variable conditions require.
This guy is just a steaming pile of…resentments. It never ends. politico.com/news/2021/07/2…

Show me what part of the U.S. Constitution gives you the right to infect and possibly kill my family members, friends, and fellow citizens because you don't believe in science? C'mon America! We have to stop this lunacy.

I love and admire Simone Biles and our Olympians. Beyond their determination and sacrifice, they evidence the greatness of the human spirit, in victory and in defeat. I take pride in them, not so much for the medals they win as for the grace, humanity & character of their hearts.

Not that Ellzey exactly ran as anti-Trump.
I wonder how many of these it will take to embolden the timid in the @GOP ranks to break free and escape the cult? twitter.com/davidaxelrod/s…

It's astounding and appalling that, out of 211 Republican members of the United States House of Representatives, only two are willing to speak clearly and consistently for democracy and the rule of law today. Two.

The Select Committee and officers who testified so searingly today laid an absolutely critical foundation. This wasn’t a benign event. Not a “normal tourist visit,” as one @GOP congressman recently suggested. It was a violent insurrection-an obvious but important place to begin.
As a WH aide late in the Clinton Administration, @stefcutter pressed the president’s public agenda while he battled impeachment after lying about his affair w/an intern. On the #AxeFiles, she recalled those years w/ a mix of pride & sober reflection. Pod�link.chtbl.com/vvC-CLCY0R
Very, very powerful ans emotional remarks by @AdamKinzinger, one of the two Republicans to serve on the Select 1/6 committee, as he addressed the officers who put their lives on the line that day to safeguard our Capitol and democracy. twitter.com/cspan/status/1…
Whatever else has gone wrong in your life up to now, you are not yet pictured in a history book with this caption.

Loved this convo between @stefcutter and @davidaxelrod. It’s rare to get Cutter on the record like this and it’s a must-listen for an inside look at the ups and downs and realities of life in politics open.spotify.com/episode/3SL8UT…

Even as COVID surges anew, they’re standing up for the freedom to kill yourselves and others. washingtonpost.com/national/gop-l…
And I didn’t realize until I read this obituary. a fellow alum of @StuyNY!
What a remarkable, courageous man! Another giant of the Civil rights era passes from the scene. RIP Bob Moses. nytimes.com/2021/07/25/us/…
.@stefcutter is one of the most driven & accomplished professionals I’ve ever known-in or out of politics. But in her 40s, she made a momentous decision and profoundly reordered her life. We talked about it on the latest #AxeFiles. Pod👉link.chtbl.com/vvC-CLCY0n
You could throw a dart at a wall of issues & probably be pretty certain of hitting one on which I disagree w/@RepLizCheney⁩. But on 1/6, she is doing something rare & admirable in politics-putting herself at risk for principle & standing up to the mob. thedailybeast.com/liz-cheney-is-…
Over 19 yrs, @stefcutter became one of Ted Kennedy’s must trusted advisers. On #AxeFiles, she recalls the day he learned he had months to live. “I walked out of that room and I hid in a corridor & cried & got it out of my system. I had a job to do.” Pod�link.chtbl.com/vvC-CLCY0C
What about Trump would suggest anything OTHER than that he’ll run? This thing is not over. His assault on democracy is only going to become more vicious, incendiary and unbounded by truth, norms or laws. twitter.com/murphymike/sta…
With the @Cubs clearly sellers as the trade deadline approaches, we probably won’t see this much longer…⁦@javy23baez⁩ just launched one out of Wrigley, to drive in ⁦@KrisBryant_23⁩ & ⁦@ARizzo44⁩. I’ll miss this scene!
.@stefcutter on @MichelleObama: “Once she was confident that she could be herself…she just took off like a meteor.” twitter.com/davidaxelrod/s…
Early in ‘08, @MichelleObama-new to the public eye-found herself the collateral target of nasty attacks & racist caricatures. @stefcutter took over the future FLOTUS’s operations and they fought back. She recalled those days on new #AxeFiles! Pod👉link.chtbl.com/vvC-CLCY0V
It’s late for those who unnecessarily have lost their lives because of disinformation and the timidity of some on the Right but the shift in tone in the past few days has been striking. twitter.com/DavidBegnaud/s…
Sat down this week w/an old friend- @stefcutter, legendary relentless campaign warrior, WH adviser & senate counselor; lawyer, TV commentator, public affairs virtuoso & now, an Emmy-nominated producer! Amazing woman w/a remarkable story. New #AxeFiles! link.chtbl.com/vvC-CLCY
GOP's painting Jim Jordan as a victim of Pelosi's partisanship, natch, but the other way to see it is funnier: that he is so batsh*t and toxic, he was used by his OWN party as a poison pill to blow up the commission.

Thinking of my friend, Sen. Herb Kohl. In the ‘80s, he saved the @Bucks for Milwaukee. When he sold them, he made keeping the team there a part of the deal, then donated $100 mil towards a new arena. He drafted @Giannis_An34 & signed @Khris22m. This is Herb’s night, too!
The @Bucks smell the meat a cookin’!
With trade deadline looming, you never know which great play @KrisBryant_23 makes might be his last in a @Cubs uniform. twitter.com/cubs/status/14…
