After the passing of any Articles of impeachment by the House of Representatives, the scenario that Mitch McConnell will refuse to allow a trial in the Senate is obviously very real. You can bank on it. 1/10
Mitch McConnell has made a despicable career of obstructionism & wrongly breaking Senate norms.

There is reason to proceed with awareness of McConnell's tactics & not rush impeachment. The longer we have, the more wrongdoing we can uncover & sway more public opinion.
2/10
If McConnell refuses a trial, the next step the House could take would be suing the Senate, which would end up at the SCOTUS.

We need to ensure the GOP bears the weight of refusing to hold lawlessness accountable. DT is already using impeachment to try & rally his dupes. 3/10

Can Texas turn blue in 2020? The writer thinks so and so do I.

Ted Cruz won his last election, but saw a 13 point margin drop from his first election to 2018. That's a 13 point pro-Democratic shift. Other seats flipped. #SundayThoughts #TurnTexasBlue 1/7

Support and volunteer for @mjhegar - an amazing Democratic candidate running to replace John Cornyn in the U.S. Senate.

To paraphrase, "Texans deserve a Senator who represents their values: strength, courage, independence."
That's not Cornyn. #txlege 3/7

Trump - Less than 3 weeks ago:

REPORTER: Does it concern you that many people saw that tweet as racist + that white nationalist groups are finding common cause with you on that point?

TRUMP: "It doesn't concern me because many people agree with me."
Trump: "I will do whatever is necessary to stop an invasion of our country. That's what it is."
(April 2019)

Trump
March 2019

After the Christchurch NZ massacre - asked if he thinks white nationalism is a rising threat

Trump: "I don't, really. I think it's a small group of people that have very, very serious problems."

As you weigh in on the latest American gun deaths, confirm that you vote.

Not just for President, U.S. Senate, Congress, and Governor. Confirm that you also vote for School Boards that implement policies, pass budgets, oversee hiring, and set priorities for school safety.

/1
/2

Confirm that you also vote in every city council race for the same reasons at a city level.

Confirm that you also vote for your county governing body for the same reasons.

And for Sheriff, District Attorney, Judges, and so on.

Every elected official on your ballots...
/3

...has some responsibility in how safe from gun violence your community can become. Some positions more than others. But all of them have power. And it’s your vote which gives them the power.

Every election is your chance to pass the power to someone new who will do better.

Happy Anniversary to our #FLDemsVBM Campaign!

A year ago, we conducted a pilot program with the objective to determine if sending handwritten #PostcardsToVoters to Dems in FL to encourage them to sign up for vote by mail (VBM) would result in an increase in signups.

/1
/2

One of the pilot counties was Pasco County. Starting July 31st, 2018, #PostcardsToVoters volunteers from across the country mailed handwritten postcards to Pasco Democrats who were not already signed up to vote by mail. The content and creativity on the postcards varied, but
/3

...all postcards had the same three bits of information:

1. Skip long lines and vote in comfort at home.
2. Sign up easily for Vote By Mail by calling toll-free: 1-800-851-8754
3. When Democrats vote by mail, Democrats win!

Liar.

The New York Times has compiled a list of the 84 environmental rules on their way out during your nightmare presidency.
Here are the ones that have been completed so far:
"1. Canceled a requirement for oil and gas companies to report methane emissions. (EPA)"
#LiarInChief
"2. Revised and partially repealed an Obama-era rule limiting methane emissions on public lands, including intentional venting and flaring from drilling operations.
(Interior Department)"
#ClimateChangeIsReal #ThursdayThoughts
"3. Loosened a Clinton-era rule designed to limit toxic emissions from major industrial polluters. (EPA)"

It's easy to celebrate those on the front lines. Those willing and able to speak in front of hundreds, sometimes thousands. Those capable gitterdone types. We applaud and support their work always, don’t we?
We also must celebrate those in the back. The people who have anxieties or time constraints that keep them from being the “leader.” They are quietly calling Congress, having tough conversations with friends and family, addressing local Dem issues.
They are writing #PostcardsToVoters, often alone, spending their own cash to support elections in locations far from their home. They may not be organizing or giving speeches, but they are just as important, just as inspiring.

Over the past 10 weeks, with help from my family and friends, I have written 881 #postcardstovoters for 25 candidates from 10 states. I am grateful to @DemocratWit, @emyryly @Marypostcards and many, many others who have supported what for me was a VERY heavy lift. #VoteBlue
Today I will write my last 19 #postcardstovoters of this election cycle. I am writing 19 more #postcards so that my total count reaches a nice round 900 postcards. Was it enough? Is it ever enough? I cannot answer that question. Only time will tell. #VoteToSaveAmerica
Being a part of this #postcardstovoters movement I've witnessed an incredible wave of Goodwill and support from other hopeful people who still believe in Democracy and the power of putting a pen to paper. I have been filled with heart filled optimism. #BlueWave

I live in NY-38 and intend to vote for @Julie4NYSenate as part of a larger commitment to @NoIDCNY / #NoIDCNY. A quick thread with some observations regarding the NYS IDC:
Disclaimer: I am just a Rockland voter, not affiliated with any candidate or organization unless you count being registered with the Democratic party. I’m pretty lefty but I voted for a local Republican once.
I saw tweets heating up last night from some from IDC incumbents and their staffers regarding exactly who is responsible for the Republican/IDC majority (basically asserting that because Simcha Felder caucused with the Rs it was natural for the IDC to do the same).

A10. I never know what to share here. Always forget the question is coming. 🤣

Only news right now is that I'll be starting my Early Voting resource soon. It's harder to be disenfranchised if you vote early or by absentee/mail-inz. #spooniechat
It's most helpful in states where they tell you when your vote has been counting. Also try @resistbot @make5calls @hellovote & #PostcardstoVoters

What do we have the most control over? Voting, helping others register to vote, getting out the vote, and flipping as many seats as possible in the #Midterms2018

Here are 27 seats Democrats can pick up, followed by candidates. Direct some energy to them. 1/7

THREAD:
Today was hard. The past week has been hard. The past few months have been hard. The constant barrage has made me sad, angry, & scared for our country. The past 18 months have been frustrating & disheartening. But I'm also finding hope, & you can too. Here's how.
1/
A) I've been deciding on some concrete actions I can take to effect change, like:
- Working to promote voter registration among the students at the med school where I'm on faculty & among the residents I work with
- Writing even more #PostcardsToVoters (through @DemocratWit)
2/
- Finding ways to volunteer with the @azdemparty &/or for @RepSinema's campaign for Senate that fit into my busy schedule (I'm sure it's possible! Somehow?)
- Donating to @kyrstensinema's campaign for Senate, & to @emilyslist, @swingleft, & @RAICESTEXAS
- Phone banking

@olgaNYC1211 Doing nothing is not an option. Here are ten simple things you can do today to make a difference:
#DoSomething
@olgaNYC1211 Buy this sign for about $15 from "Signs of Justice" .com and put it in your yard. Better yet, buy 10 signs and get your friends and neighbors to put them in their yards too! #SignsOfJustice
@olgaNYC1211 Sign up for Postcards to Voters. #PostcardsToVoters @tonythedemocrat
Sending hand-written postcards is one of the most effective things you can do.

As requested, I'm putting the NEWLY UPGRADED instructions for this #ProtectMueller #Resistance project into a text format. This covers 1) why bother doing this, 2) how to find the donors' addresses on the FEC website, and 3) how to send a postcard to your list of donors.
1/ We’re getting close to a constitutional crisis here, so we really need to try something new to stop this. Of course, keep calling Congress–but it’s become painfully obvious that the GOP–the people with the power to stop this–only respond to their base and their donors.
2/ So we’re going to speak to their masters & send a BLIZZARD of postcards to their big donors to remind them what is at stake before we reach a point of no return, before Trump crosses the Rubicon (just Google it) #Indivisible #PostcardsToDonors #PostcardsToVoters #TheResistance
