I’ll be in the audience for tonight’s #DemocraticDebate in #Houston.

I’m just a *little* excited 😊

If you know me from on here, please say hello!

I’ll be wearing a navy silk shirt, dark jeans, and black boots.

And I look like my photo.
I’m not sure if I’ll be able to tweet during the debate.

But I’ll keep y’all in the loop when I get to the venue at @TexasSouthern, a HBCU here in Houston, and let you know what the energy is like on the ground.

Taking all y’all with me in spirit!

#BlueWave2020 🌊🌊🌊
I’m here. Waiting for the shuttle to take us to the venue.

Trump is buzzing the @TexasSouthern campus with a plane pulling a sign:

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 was elected with the support of roughly 1/4 of all eligible voters (almost half of all eligible voters didn't even vote that year.)

If we really want change, we have to get involved & help others see the importance of voting. We must expand the vote.

.@swingleft has focused in past elections on key swing districts to flip them #redtoblue

Now they're focusing on 11 states to win the Senate, the White House, & #redistricting for Democrats.

We can all help whether we're in those states or not. 2/7

After the Supreme Court refused to rule on state gerrymandering cases, we have to flip state legislatures blue to get fair maps. Grassroots is focusing in these key 9 states. Help from anywhere. #EndGerrymandering #FridayFeeling #BlueWave 3/7

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 Revised and partially repealed an Obama-era rule limiting methane emissions on public lands, including intentional venting and flaring from drilling operations.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)"

Tales from the Trail

72 doors knocked today. It's funny how your mind focuses more strongly when you're fasting. Ordinarily I'd be thinking about an ice cold bottle of my favorite #Mexicoke, but instead, I just listened.
One woman told me about a hospital that couldn't take a metal shard out of her son's eye. Too fast development: they cut corners building the hospital and now she felt the services she needed weren't necessarily available.
Another woman told me she was scared of what could happen to her grandson, a visible Sikh who wore a turban to school. She spoke in Punjabi, her voice heavy with emotion, "We have to hide ourselves, who will make us feel comfortable and safe?"

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- “There are a lot of people out there who have done some very, very evil things,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. “I would say treasonous things against our country. Hopefully, people that have done such harm to our country-we have gone through a period of really bad
2-"things happening-those people will certainly be looked at. I've been looking at them for a long time, and I'm saying, ‘Why haven't they been looked at? They lied to Congress.’ Many of them. You know who they are. They have done so many evil things.” ~Trump
3-Trump's comments yesterday, along with the hit list that the RNC sent to TV producers in an attempt to undermine the cred of his critics, are terrifying. But here's the thing, we cannot let it distract us-that's what it's designed to do. It's part of Trump's campaign strategy

1-Just heard John Hickenlooper make remarks to the effect that the Dem party "needs dreamers waving their arms, but they don't seem to get much done" To that I say, the Dem Freshman Congress have been in office for under 3 mos.
2-Making noise and mistakes is a rite of passage for new legislators. We need to give them a little space, a little time & to remember that they're on a learning curve that most of us would run from.
3-Some of the issues that have arisen are potentially pretty serious in nature, but things will settle down, level off.. So let's take a step back and give them a minute. It's a hard job and we really don't need to be infighting. #BlueWave2020 #SaturdayThoughts

Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown has announced that he will not be running for President in 2020. After Bloomberg's same announcement, this makes me all but absolutely certain that Joe Biden is going to run. #BlueWave2020 #ThursdayMotivation politico.com/story/2019/03/…

At the VERY least, this time Sanders needs to CAREFULLY explain what his policy will be in re his free college for all etc... etc... we're in a VERY different place than we were in 16, we have a HUGE deficit & mess that must start to be rectified, I still don't hear that from him
Will we? I don't know... I hope that his supporters will this time require more of a plan from him for his ideations, rather than just let him say 'we'll work out the details later'. We're a nation of traumatized people now, and what @ his Foreign Policy? Do our allies trust him?
