Juneteenth becoming a federal holiday is an important moment in understanding our country's history, and the horrors and lasting legacy of slavery. But real justice is when all Black Americans live free of oppression. That is not the work of a single day, but of every day.

This oped by @BernieSanders convincingly argues that the key to America's efforts to promote democracy abroad is first getting our shit together back home. We need to show, not tell, that our system is better: foreignaffairs.com/articles/china…

Remembering the before times when TNR was run by a sociopathic anti-Palestinian bigot, it's really beautiful to see this kind of reporting in @newrepublic. twitter.com/mattduss/statu…
“We are witnessing the most concerted and comprehensive mass Palestinian displacement and settler takeover campaign in East Jerusalem since 1967” Great piece by @DaliaHatuqa @newrepublic newrepublic.com/article/162750…
Good for the admiral. The military's leadership needs to push back against those in Congress craveningly concocting indignation to distract attention from their party's assault on democracy and unwillingness to develop coherent policies. washingtonpost.com/national-secur…

Excited to see the Senate build on our momentum in the House to end forever wars. Thank you to @SenSchumer & @SenatorMenendez for your leadership & commitment to bringing the 2002 AUMF repeal to the floor. Let's get this across the finish line to @POTUS's desk this year. twitter.com/connorobrienNH…

If you want to understand how the different rules work, think about how every activist who has ever been within a mile radius of Farrakhan is required to disavow him, but Republicans just hang out with John Hagee with no problem.
The Strategic Competition Act, which easily passed in the Senate last week, continues this trend of treating academics and students from China as potential spies and directs the President to intensify the policies that lead to racist debacles like this twitter.com/JessLee_DC/sta…

In a sane world it would also be a scandal that Haley is touring the country with John Hagee, but there are different rules when the extremist clerics happen to be evangelical Christians. twitter.com/kampeas/status…
It is mostly for this reason that I left @AOC's office a couple months ago. She's a great boss and I adored my colleagues, but with two kids in daycare I just couldn't afford the job. It's not just that the Hill pays less than K street. It's less than non-profit or local gov't. twitter.com/AndrewSolender…

It's been 3 yrs since human rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh was sentenced to 38.5 yrs in prison and 148 lashes for defending women’s rights in Iran. From prison she cont’s to advocate for the humane treatment of political prisoners. She should not have spent a single day in prison.

A lot of questions about the new government’s policies, especially with regard to Palestinian rights, but today I’m celebrating with my Israeli colleagues over the end of Netanyahu’s corrosive rule.
It’s pretty wild to see the (former) leader of a US client state openly proclaiming that willingness to interfere in US politics is a key job qualification. twitter.com/barakravid/sta…
It's just his stump speech so far. Heard it a dozen times. But *finally* figured out how he works, aftr 12 yrs: Orchestrate chaos, then call off the cronies, speak calmly & tell everyone yr the only one who can manage the mess.
