So tonight, I finally got to see @KamalaHarris in person. And I can attest that she is a force. America, she is the one.
I got to tell her what her historical campaign meant to me, and she listened and said we mean a lot to her. #KHive
Kamala is so strong and formidable, but warm and genuine. #ForThePeople

By popular demand, a thread on #KamalaHarris’ town hall tonight in Greenville, SC...
The first cool part of this story is I went with my 2 new friends that I met via twitter. Chase and I connected because we are canvassing in SC next weekend and his partner Ramsey joined us
We arrived at Phillis Wheatley Center and the campaign staff were all super friendly. Kendrick Lamar was playing so I knew it would be good. I caught a glimpse of @timiciagrant and she was walking around like the boss she is.
We got pulled out by 2 reporters and asked questions about if we were supporters or if we were hear to listen. We explained we are supporters who drove down from NC to see her. We had great answers to their questions and they seemed a bit surprised how well informed we are. 💁🏼‍♀️

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

As I’m at store.kamalaharris.org trying to figure out which long sleeve tee to buy, I’ve been thinking about why her candidacy is so important and meaningful to me. I’ll share 😀 #thread #Khive #ForThePeople
We are Sorors, pledged at the same time (Spring 1986, Alpha Chapter at Howard for her, Nu Alpha at Emory for me). Obviously sisters of the same mind there. I trust her judgment!
💕💚 #AKA1908 💕💚
#Kamala reminds me so much of the promise of #AKA1908, the focus on service. When I heard her say yesterday at #LJ19 that the 1st words she spoke in court were “Kamala Harris, For The People...” it was just electrifying, because she is sincere. #KHive

Oh my!

Senator Kamala Harris brings the house down at the Liberty & Justice Celebration in Iowa

The beauty of America's diversity!

We need someone who can go toe to toe with Trump

"And you're lookin at her!"

Yes we are!

#LJ19
On the Select Intelligence Committee, Homeland Security, tackled international gangs, reduced recidivism, historic mortgage settlement, successfully recovered millions for consumers from college scam, refused to defend Prop 8, wouldn't pursue the death penalty, she has delivered
PRESIDENT OBAMA 2016:

"Kamala Harris cracked down on transnational gangs exploiting women children & won.

Kamala sued predatory for-profit colleges scamming students & won

Kamala Harris will be a fearless fighter #ForThePeople every single day" #LJ19

.@realDonaldTrump and Republicans in Washington want you to think Democrats can’t walk and chew gum at the same time.

But we’ve been fighting #ForThePeople since Day One.

The House-passed legislation piling up outside @SenateMajLdr McConnell’s office proves it.
@realDonaldTrump @senatemajldr The scores of bills we’ve passed aren’t busy work.

If passed into law, they will improve the lives of Americans across the country & build a better future for generations to come.

But the @SenateGOP has made the cynical decision to ignore it all.
Some key examples?

H.R. 7, the #PaycheckFairness Act, would ensure equal pay for women nationwide.

Meanwhile, the #ForThePeople Act would enact the most ambitious set of democracy reforms and ethics standards in a generation.

If you’re not watching, you should be. Kamala Harris hosted by DMACC on Iowa Public Television, Conversations with Presidential Candidates. youtube.com/channel/UCHHph…
Fall blazer chic...
Gotta love that she's laying out her healthcare plan. Confirming that she won't raise taxes and that getting this right is not just about the cost but about a return on our investment.

I see a lot of valid commentary about Kamala standing alone in her advocacy at the criminal justice forum but at the same time I feel like that was absofuckinglutely the precise point she intended to make. What better platform to set herself apart, and with what better audience?
This wasn’t just about denouncing the sham award given to Trump or the attempted whitewashing of his racist legacy, it was about asserting herself as a leader in criminal justice reform, speaking directly to Black SC and drawing a distinction between herself and the frontrunners.
It was also a premeditated and fearless confrontation of the “Kamala is a cop” propaganda, truth be told. She isn’t afraid to put her entire record under scrutiny, in fact she reformed the whole forum to make sure ample Black stakeholders/voters were in attendance.

Here’s what leadership based on integrity and principles looks like.
1) Kamala boycotts CJR forum, refusing to normalize Trump’s racism and fake criminal justice claims.
2) Harris plans an alternate CJR forum for HBCU students to attend.

THREAD.

#khive #kamala
3) Although Harris’ boycott received public support, no other candidate followed her lead.
4) Kamala’s boycott prompted the mayor of Columbia, Steve Benjamin to host an alternate forum AT THE SAME COLLEGE ON THE SAME DAY.

#Kamala #Khive
5) The group that awarded Trump, is no longer hosting the forum. Mayor Benjamin took it to ensure the students Trump shut out are fairly included.
6) Now other candidates are signing up for the alternate event as a result of Kamala’s leadership.

During my first week on the ground in Iowa, a woman came up to me and said, “I’m a single mom, I work two jobs, and I have two kids at home. I won’t answer the phone when you call me and I won’t be at home when you canvass me. How is your campaign reaching me?”

(thread) 🗣
I told her I didn’t have an answer, but that I would find one. And low and behold, that’s when @bentoniavoices became an ambassador for @mamas4kamala— a grassroots movement of caregivers across this country who want to see @KamalaHarris as our next POTUS.
@mamas4kamala understands @KamalaHarris spent her career fighting for our vulnerable populations—specifically women and children.

So Ruby and I started to hold events, and we canvassed parks because we knew the only way to do this right, was to bring the campaign to the people.

Good morning, #KHive! Today, I’m kicking off the week with my thread of 46 reasons that Kamala Harris should be our next president! Let’s go! 👏🏽 #Kamala2020 #ForThePeople #KamalaHarris
1 - It’s time for a woman in the White House. More than that, it’s time for a WOC in the White House - for Kamala. She comes from a diverse background that understands how the majority of Americans live day to day + her 3AM Agenda speaks to what keep us up at night. #Kamala2020
2 - Kamala has broken barriers that noone has before. Kamala was the first female DA of SF + First black woman to serve as AG in CA. Kamala is also the second black woman and first South-Asian American elected to the senate! WHAT GLASS CEILING? #Kamala2020 harris.senate.gov/about

Please note how dear LGBTQ issues are to Kamala Harris. She can recite facts and illustrate her personal connections to these issues. She’s lost friends to AIDS. She’s fighting to make PrEP affordable. She knows Black men are twice as likely to contract AIDS. #EqualityTownHall
Kamala Harris INTENDS to end the AIDS epidemic in a generation. She said when you put a deadline on something it puts people on notice and accelerates solving the problem. #EqualityTownHall
Kamala’s voice was trembling as she discusses the intersectionality of sexual orentation and race and other common self-identifiers like legal status. #EqualityTownHall

It’s clear these issues are personal. If you want a true fighter, Kamala is the clear choice! #ForThePeople

I was feeling frustrated and felt compelled to make a video debunking this myth we’ll all heard that “we don’t know what Kamala Harris stands for”. We know what she stands for; her career has been built on standing up for children.
Harris started her career working on children’s issues and that continued throughout her work as DA, AG, and Senator. Now she’s out with the first comprehensive plan on children’s issues. That is what she stands for. That is WHO she stands for.
Her plan:

✅ 6 months of paid family and medical leave

✅ Policies to cut the child poverty rate by 50% in her first time

✅ Creates the Bureau of Children and Family justice

A note on #impeachment #Ukraine

Below you will find what the Constitution of the United States says about the impeachment process.

Something to remember as we wade into this sacrosanct constitutional process: Congress has unchecked power to impeach. The House of Representatives
has 'sole' power of impeachment. Sole = belonging only to. Nixon v. Fitzgerald, a landmark case that established executive privilege & presidential immunity also ruled that impeachment & the press were inherent powers of the public to check presidential abuse of power.
The Constitution does not give the judicial or executive branch any jurisdiction to limit or obstruct the impeachment process. In fact, doing so would contravene the express mandate of the Constitution and all following judicial & legislative actions in this matter. So what's

Five whole Trump supporters have shown up and are staging themselves outside the pavilion.
A young woman whose name I didnt catch is talking about why she's supporting Kamala. Her ancestors were killed during the Holocaust after being turned away for immigration.
OMG WHERE WILL SHE WALK OUT FROM? I'M SO NERVOUS/EXCITED.

The President lies and says Democrats "do nothing" in Congress.

@RealDonaldTrump, here's a reminder of the bills we've passed in the House #ForthePeople that await Senate action and your signature:
@realDonaldTrump H.R. 1, which would end the role of big money in politics, expand voting rights and ensure that public officials work for the people, not special interests. bit.ly/2UmpMzs
@realDonaldTrump H.R. 8, which would close dangerous loopholes and require background checks for all gun sales. bit.ly/2MdpWGA

There are a lot of people I have encountered that have said they don't care who is the Democratic nominee as long as Trump is out.

I'm not going to settle for just any candidate. All this does is silence the vetting process on a candidate you support. Here's what I want. 1/
I want a president that will fight #ForThePeople .

I want her to think about her legislative plans, listen to her constituents and go back to the drawing board of necessary. 2/
I want a president who has a history of protecting children and know that she will take action on doing so with or without the help of congress.

That she is full of empathy, but can be ruthless & fearless when the country needs her to be. One that has spent her career 3/

🚨📹#ICYMI: Speaker Pelosi was joined at her weekly presser by Rep. Adam Schiff, Chair of the House Intelligence Committee. LOTS of #ImpeachmentInquiry news after a week of jaw-dropping revelations.💥See below💥

But first, news about work in the House to #LowerDrugCosts w/ #HR3.
With #MadamSpeaker's stellar leadership, the Democratic House Majority is more than able to WALK + CHEW GUM at the same time.

As they've been doing throughout self-labeled #GrimReaper McConnell's obstruction, @HouseDemocrats are working #ForThePeople and to #ExposeTheTruth.
@HouseDemocrats Just as the past week has confirmed how ill-suited Trump is to the task of being President, it has made something else crystal clear:

❤️NANCY PATRICIA D'ALESANDRO PELOSI WAS MADE FOR THIS MOMENT.❤️

Thank you #MadamSpeaker for your principled leadership to #ProtectOurDemocracy.

1/ Another ridiculous lie from @realDonaldTrump.

From day one, @HouseDemocrats have been focused on delivering on our promises to the American people. Meanwhile, Mitch McConnell calls himself the “grim reaper” and refuses to even consider our bills.
2/ We have the receipts to back it up.
We passed #HR1, the For The People Act — the most ambitious set of ethics & election reforms in a generation. It gets big money out of politics, protects voting rights & strengthens ethics laws.
3/ We passed the #EqualityAct to ensure #LGBTQ Americans get the same legal protection as everyone else.
