In Iowa, there are approximately 264 gun deaths each year – 80% are gun suicides. An Extreme Risk Protection Order bill, HF 2367, was just introduced in the Iowa House, and would give families an important and effective tool to keep loved ones safe while in crisis. #iapolitics
.@Everytown has launched a $250,000 digital ad campaign to call on Iowa legislators to pass the extreme risk bill, and unveiled Iowa polling showing three-quarters of Iowans support its passage. And @MomsDemand volunteers showed up in force at the statehouse to support the bill.
Tell Iowa friends and family to tell their lawmakers to support HF 2367 to help prevent firearm suicides and reduce gun deaths in Iowa by giving law enforcement officers a new way to intervene when someone in crisis is a danger to themselves or others.…

@livingrock21 @2xwide_dreaming @DonaldJTrumpJr I've been on the trail of the two Chalupa's for 2 yrs. Yes 2, her sister Andrea is the other Chalupa. They both have me blocked, however a couple of researchers that lay low keep me supplied on their twitter feed. My problem has been documents, but @jsolomonReports has been huge
@livingrock21 @2xwide_dreaming @DonaldJTrumpJr @jsolomonReports Along with the Chalupas you also have the Mensch factor in support, posing as a displaced conservative from the UK is anything but that. Where Beck slips up is he completely leave out Victoria Nuland and her direct pipeline to the Obama White House. That's a whole other chapter.
@livingrock21 @2xwide_dreaming @DonaldJTrumpJr @jsolomonReports I love writing and putting things together, but I like to have documents or citations to back it all up. Without them it's just blogging, and that just gets swallowed up in all the white noise. But when you have documents and proof it then becomes something with teeth.

Iowa's largest newspaper: vote Democratic.

"Some have argued that this election should be a referendum on Trump. We disagree. This is about Congress, which has abdicated its constitutional duty and has failed to provide a check and balance to the executive branch" #iapolitics
"Key Republicans are complicit in trying to obstruct and undermine the investigation of a foreign power’s interference in a US election.

And by their silence they have tacitly endorsed Trump’s racism, misogyny, white nationalism, divisiveness and crudity"
“In his almost 16 years in Congress, @SteveKingIA has passed exactly 1 bill as primary sponsor, redesignating a post office. He won’t debate his opponent & rarely holds public town halls. Instead, he spends his time meeting with fascist leaders in Europe and retweeting neo-Nazis”

Hey folks: Big news out of Iowa that will have a major impact on the 2018 election. Key parts of Secretary of State Paul Pate’s voter-ID law were blocked by the state’s Supreme Court on Friday! #IApolitics 1/
Passed in 2017, this law requires Iowans to show an ID in order to cast a ballot, includes a signature-matching requirement and makes voters include a state-assigned voter-ID number on absentee-ballot request forms. 2/
No part of Pate’s voter-ID law actually improves the integrity or security of elections in the state. In fact, approximately 200,000 Iowans lack the ID necessary to vote under this new law. It’s voter suppression, plain and simple. 3/

1) Disturbing to me in #Mueller indictments was allegation of #Russia plant of #IaCaucus #Fraud stories. That broke the back of the party in #Iowa 4 2016 cycle. Caused mass party switches to independent in some parts of #IA. Remember #DemExit? #TrumpRussia #IaPolitics #IaDem
When #DemExit on #twitter & #FB was ongoing, I had a face2face discussion in #Fairfield of voter registration changes at the #JeffersonCounty court house. There were quite a few -- a direct consequence of #Bernie people being angry cuz they had seen SM fraud stories. #IaPolitics
3) I really saw damage from #TrumpRussia #IaCaucusFraud allegations in Oct 2016 going door-to-door in #Fairfield. The #DemVoter lists were "squishy." Lots of changed parties, lots of discussion of the #IaCaucus allegations of fraud and not voting #IaDem. #Mueller #iapolitics
