Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib opposes the Democratic 2020 platform and Joe Biden. On Saturday the Michigan lawmaker claimed that she does not support the platform because it does not contain a single-payer healthcare system.
“Today, I cast my DNC ballot and voted NO on the proposed platform,” Tlaib tweeted. “I constantly hear from constituents demanding we push for a single-payer system and away from this for-profit system that is leaving people to suffer and die just because they cannot afford health care.”
“As a party, we must push for a future where every resident has the ability to thrive. That means we need a platform that works to rid our society of oppression and greed. Unfortunately, in my view this platform does not do enough,” she continued.

Tlaib posted a photo showing that she voted no to the proposed platform and also cast a vote for Senator Bernie Sanders.
Bernie supporters could go a long way toward a November victory over President Trump. In 2016 they were not as supportive for Hillary Clinton as many stayed home.

Auntie Maxine Predicts Kamala Harris 'will be President'
On Thursday, Rep. Maxine Waters predicted that Joe Biden's vice-presidential nominee Senator Kamala Harris would be president.
Sounds to me like she isn't so much "predicting" but rather telling us what will happen if Biden wins the presidency. We all know he is not competent enough to operate a microwave, let alone a whole country! Make no doubt about it, if Biden/Harris get in the door, Harris will be the one running the show.

Black Lives Matter Backs Down After Real Black Residents Force Them Out
The Black Lives Matter movement is not in any way about black lives actually mattering. At this point, it's a front for Antifa to attack people and destroy businesses all while hiding behind the curtain of "social justice".
The movement doesn't really care about black lives, the only thing they care about is being whining little brats. In fact, most of the "protesters" aka rioters are young white people.
