If you want to increase the chances of a House impeachment of Trump then contact your representative.

You can your representative here. Mind you that you have to go through several pages and make somewhat of an effort.

house.gov/representative…
This is a directory of your Representatives. house.gov/representatives
If you know the name of your representative already you can easily contact them. This can be done either via email, contact form or calling them.

Maybe instead of retweeting your favorite MSNBC agitator all day long you can do so if you haven't done so already.

There is nothing wrong with a nation grappling with its legacy of slavery and reminding its populace every so often of that dark legacy. I have no problem with the #1619project in principle. I have read some of the articles, not all and I do have some reservations.
#1 the idea that America was created in 1619 reeks too much of an ‘Original Sin’ doctrine. It is ironic that those educating us on slavery would adopt a punitive doctrine that was used to perpetuate slavery in the first place. This should be unpacked.
#2 Even if one were okay with the ‘original sin’ paradigm, the fact that we know slavery is a sin is a feature of the West. This project could not have been taken up in Saudi Arabia or China. The very acknowledgment of the institution as a sin presupposes a pursuit of salvation.

1.) #RedFlagLaws, yes they violate the Constitution, let me show you the ways.

#2A - It never ceases to amaze me how the phrase, “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”, simply cannot be understood by such a large swath of the American people.
2.) I understand there are folks who don’t like the #2A , but pretending it’s not there or that it says something it doesn’t is lazy, arrogant, and tyrannical.
3.) #4A - We all have a right to be secure, in both our homes and our property, and against unreasonable search and seizure. But how secure are you when someone can make an unfounded claim and your house is entered and your property seized?

The history and primary causes of Alzheimer's Disease explainlife.com/health-basics-…
You don’t have to go to medical school for 8 to 12 years to understand that toxins we consume not only affect our heart and body, but our brain as well. And yet, medical doctors wouldn’t make nearly the income they do now if they told you to fix your diet, never drink tap water.
Boycott foods imported from China, quit taking antacids, avoid metal hip replacements, and quit getting vaccines… now would they?

#DigitalBoR

Digital Bill of Rights to protect our 4th Amendment rights to privacy in the digital age.

Original #4A Language:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated,
and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
The, the ONLY places personally identifiable details could be found were on their person, in their house, or among their papers and effects. Cloud storage, digital medical records, financial databases or stock exchanges, and certainly social media – did not exist.

THREAD on new 9th Circuit decision in Rodriguez v. Swartz, our (@ACLUaz @sdACLU + @ACLU) cross-#border shooting case: On Oct. 10, 2012, a U.S. Border Patrol agent on duty in Nogales, AZ fired between 14 & 30 bullets across the #border. aclusandiego.org/wp-content/upl…
Approximately 10 of those bullets hit J.A. Rodriguez, a 16 year old boy peacefully walking down the street on the other side of the #border wall, in Nogales, Mexico.
The 9th Circuit opinion first *affirms* the AZ district court's decision denying Agent Swartz qualified immunity: 📢📢📢"It is inconceivable that any reasonable officer could have thought that he or she could kill J.A. for no reason." Slip Op. at 9.

1/ Thread: Here are my 12 thoughts on #Brexit. We are at half-time in Art50 process. Departure UK from EU now exactly 12m away. Right moment to take stock and list a few backward- and forward-looking thoughts. (You can also read the full blog-post here: delorsinstitut.de/en/all-publica…)
#1: When the UK voted leave, many said the EU would be weakened. Today it is clear that the contrary is true: it’s the UK not the EU that has been weakened by Brexit.
#2a Whatever people say, it would have been possible for Britain to change its mind about Brexit. Many political decisions, even after referenda, have been reversed in many countries.

Doing some early morning research on the push to regulate private home-schools in California. Who are the players? I'll leave some interesting findings in this thread as I have time. I'll tell you one thing: Mandatory vaccination is on the agenda. #noAB2756 #noAB2926 #Turpin13
Following news on the #Turpin13 case, one of the names that kept coming up was "The Coalition for Responsible Home Education." Homeschoolers know how much that case received national coverage and with each headline having "Homeschool" stuffed into the title. So who are they?
Let's start with this interview with the Co-Founder on "how common the California case is, as well as policy reforms #CRHE is pushing for." blogs.edweek.org/edweek/charter… #Turpin13 #NoAB2926 #NoAB2756

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Inspired by the students of #NeverAgainMSD, let's contextualize #2A using the Heller decision and dissent: oyez.org/cases/2007/07-…
When summarizing #2A, many say it is “the right to bear arms” but that shorthand ignores the other 22 words, plus two heavily debated commas. In District of Columbia v. Heller on June 26, 2008, the Supreme Court decision supplanted centuries of precedents with this shorthand.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State”

The preamble identifies the purpose of the amendment as the preservation of the militia. It is important to look at the preamble with historical context: contemporary State Declarations of Rights.
