@realDonaldTrump Since #MoscowMitch won’t let the Senate vote on any of the 400+ bills passed by @TeamPelosi, you probably don’t know anything about them

Let me help you out

BUT-get ready; it’s gonna take awhile

HR 259-Medicaid Extenders Act of 2019

#oktrumper
#ImpeachAndRemove
@realDonaldTrump @TeamPelosi More bills from “Do Nothing Dems”

HR 271-Condemning the Trump Administration’s Legal Campaign to Take Away Americans’ Health Care
HR 986-Protecting Americans with Preexisting Conditions
HR 987-Strengthening Health Care and Lowering Prescription Drug Costs

#ImpeachmentTaskForce
@realDonaldTrump @TeamPelosi The “Do Nothing Dems” sure seem to be doing something to lower drug prices 🤔

HR 1520-Purple Book Continuity Act (bill aimed at lowering the cost of prescription drugs)
HR 1503-Orange Book Transparency Act of 2019 (bill aimed at lowering the cost of prescription drugs)

1/17 Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch is a hero.

Let's begin there.

She did not set out to be a hero.

She set out to serve her country with skills carefully learned over a lifetime in the Foreign Service.

And she did.

2/17 A career diplomat, she served in the State Department since 1986. This means she served under Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., and Obama before doing so under Trump.

washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/…
3/17 She is the Canadian-born daughter of Russians who fled the USSR & Nazis, served 30 years in the Foreign Service wing of the State Dept., moved 13 times to serve in 7 countries, & is former ambassador to Kyrgyzstan (2004-08) & Armenia (2008-11).

Welcome to the Member of Congress Tracking Report for the week ending November 10, 2019. With Congress on recess this week, we are going to do things a bit differently this week. We are going to take a dive into #McConnellsGraveyard.

#GOP keeps trotting out their tired talking point about the “do-nothing-Dems” and all we can concentrate on is #Impeachment.

NOT TRUE.

What you’ll find below are 30 bills of the 300+ that #McConnell has stalled in the Senate.

#MoCTrack #DemCast 2/33

HR 1 - #ForThePeople

A bill that would improve voting rights, fix campaign finance regulations, and mandate ethics and accountability reforms.
💯 over 100 co-sponsors (236)

My interview with ⁦@jennycohn1⁩ on ⁦@DemCastUSA⁩. (TY #DemCast@DemWrite⁩!)

What’s it about?

1. How former lawyer, Jenny Cohn became an Election Security Advocate

2. Georgia’s Corrupted Electronic Elections (How + Why)

3. Solutions! demcastusa.com/2019/10/23/jen…
1. Jenny Cohn: Election Security Advocate Extraordinaire! How a former lawyer and stay-at-home mom became one of America’s top election security advocates - and how she single-handedly proved:

“Georgia is the epicenter of America’s corrupted electronic elections.”
2. Jenny Cohn: A tenacious, fact-finding bloodhound! “At settlements I loved being the most factually prepared.”

‘We the People’ are incredibly fortunate to have @jennycohn1, discovery bloodhound and Democracy Warrior truth-hunting for US!

1/8 #Disinformation & #Misinformation can come in many forms.

One of them is #cherrypicking, where only certain pieces of information are chosen to sell your argument.

Sometimes this presentation is done purely for sensationalism.

Take this Dan Scavino post Trump re-tweeted:
2/8 Seizing upon this shocking potential revelation, numerous news outlets are broadcasting it as if it were a lock, a definite thing, but if you look more closely at the articles themselves, it turns out to be anything but.
3/8 The numbers come from Moody's Analytics, a poll alla re swift to note has been accurate for 40 years... except in 2016.

That's a very recent & sizable blunder, & though they insist taking into account surprise turnout patterns resolves the issue, it leaves room for doubt.

So many are wondering how we get OTHERS to take of our central problem: our POTUS* run amok.

Can we get the ICC involved? The Hague? The Pope? The UN, EU, NATO, SOMEONE, ANYONE to stop him committing war crimes by proxy....

When it's always been up to us.

Always.

@moved2italy @B52Malmet @lfkraus @TheLoyalO @TrinityResists @ImmaBlueDot @axidentaliberal @dEMMAcratic @GaladrielResist @CaptainResists Ways to STOP THE MADNESS:

1) Call your Senators and Representative---> Not kidding

Put pressure on them for impeachment, for censure, for reversing course in Syria. Everything.

Senate ☎️(202) 224-3121
Rep ☎️(202) 225-3121
@moved2italy @B52Malmet @lfkraus @TheLoyalO @TrinityResists @ImmaBlueDot @axidentaliberal @dEMMAcratic @GaladrielResist @CaptainResists 2) Visit Senate and Representative offices in person.

Occupy them. Bring some friends. Take it in turns. Bring snacks. Lotsa water. Make it a "round the clock" sit-in until you get some satisfaction. They work for you and it's about time they started acting like it.

1/16 It has begun. The GOP is spinning that the sole transcript Trump says he will release is more important than the #WhistleblowerComplaint as a tactic to insist everything should ride on this one supposed piece of evidence.

#ImpeachTrump #ImpeachmentParty #UkraineTranscript
2/16 All reports indicate this was a months-long conspiracy Trump and Giuliani were engaged in, subverting & bypassing officials who tried to stop them.

A single call does not BEGIN to give an accurate depiction of the events that lead up to this. washingtonpost.com/national-secur…
3/16 And Trump already has a shady history with releasing information.

Forget the obvious like his tax returns, school grades, and secret meetings with Putin.

Actually, a reminder of those secret meetings:

Saudi first: Trump wants to start a war with Iran when MBS gives the order interc.pt/30axJio by @mehdirhasan
On the word of a single, likely compromised, U.S. official, CBS says the Saudi oil attack was approved by Iran's supreme leader.

This story deserves our skepticism.

cbsnews.com/news/saudi-oil…
I gotta say, this doesn't FEEL smart.

Under Trump arms deal, US smart bombs to be built in Saudi Arabia

We should not hand the Saudis valuable weapons tech given the kingdom's conduct in Yemen and its human rights record.

THE DANGER OF BARR PARROTING TRUMP CONSPIRACY THEORIES

It legitimizes the falsehoods

They’re out to get me
It a coup
It’s the Deep State

And if he loses in 2020? Will he refuse to relinquish office because the system is “rigged”?

Democracy stands at the edge of a precipice
Think Barr was simply being loose with his language? Consider-he said

“I THINK SPYING ON A POLITICAL CAMPAIGN IS A BIG DEAL”

That implies he knew EXACTLY what he was saying

He’s not Matt Whitaker

Also HE KNEW THIS CLAIM HAD ALREADY BEEN DEBUNKED

forbes.com/sites/steveden…
Combine this with

The memo he sent to Trump undermining the Mueller investigation

Giving life to ANOTHER Trump talking point by prejudging Meuller’s conclusions

And you have a man who apparently decided sycophancy was more important than his principles

1/ My Personal Thank You to Donald J. Trump...

Human beings are tribal.

We define ourselves relative to our affiliations, our social networks, our tribes.

Our nationality. Our religion. Our ethnicity. Our school. Our political affiliation. Our profession. Our sports teams...
2/ The neighborhood we were born in. The city we were born in. All are tribes of one sort or another.

With our tribal behavior comes certain prejudices, certain judgements that we render against those of a different tribe.

I've had them my whole life. ..
3/ We all have them, to one degree or another, whether or not we admit it to ourselves.

It's in recognition of that fact that I have to personally thank Donald J. Trump for freeing me of those prejudices, those judgements...
