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

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.

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.
@realDonaldTrump H.R. 8, which would close dangerous loopholes and require background checks for all gun sales.

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:


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.

The library of #KamalaHarris! I'll be adding important links, articles, and videos to this thread for easy access. With barely 50% name recognition, we need to be armed with highlights of the good and rebuttals for the smears.

#ForThePeople #KamalaHarris2020…

Learn about Kamala Harris's time as a DA and AG of California. Highlights include: clearing rape kit backlogs, lowering incarceration rates, recividism, and truancy, and fighting for LGBTQ+ rights.…

Hear anything about Kamala's plan for #Veterans? Probably not. Listen or read to highlights about it here! Highlights: reducing homelessness, expanding healthcare eligibility, protecting sexual assault victims, and improving housing for active duty.

#LGBTQ Presidential Forum Tonight!

Kamala Harris is more than ready.

Here are a "few things" why:

1. Introduced the Do No Harm Act with Reps. Scott and Kennedy that would ensure that religion cannot be used to discriminate against LGBTQ individuals.

2. Cosponsor of the Equality Act that would amend the Civil Rights Act to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

3. Advocate for fairness in health

#Khive #ForThePeople #Kamala
3a. Cosponsor of the Repeal HIV Discrimination Act which would provide for federal review of state and local laws that impose criminal liability on individuals living with HIV.

3b. As AG, sent letter to FDA urging the agency to reconsider its blood ban for gay men.

I have said it time and again, #KamalaHarris has consistently been a champion of reform for decades. Here is how she responded at the #DemDebate and check out 50 times #Kamala acted on/accomplished #CriminalJusticeReform #Kamala2020

#CriminalJustice ROUNDTABLE - Video Thread

Today, @KamalaHarris announced her plan to "Transform the Criminal Justice System."

She sat down to discuss with @angela_rye @dwatkinsworld @DrPhilGoff @JamiraBurley


#KamalaHarris2020 #ForThePeople
@KamalaHarris @angela_rye @dwatkinsworld @DrPhilGoff @JamiraBurley On restoring trust in calling the police

"There is a piece that is about restructuring the system in a way that we actually create accountability... creating standards that are for prosecutors & police officers."

Mentions violation of trust should have consequences #Kamala2020
@KamalaHarris @angela_rye @dwatkinsworld @DrPhilGoff @JamiraBurley "For too long we have put the onus on the community... to work on how the reciprocal relationship of trust should occur instead of putting the responsibility equally, if not more, on those who have actually create the distrust in terms of how the system works." @KamalaHarris

I tell people all the time that campaigning in Iowa is different than anywhere else. And I’ve been trying to find the best way to explain what I mean by that. Tonight, I was knocking doors in Poweshiek County, and met Lamoyne, a former county supervisor there. #IACaucus
We began talking about the caucus and the importance of personal interactions with caucus-goers.

When I asked what issues he sees in the community, he talked a lot about concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs).
CAFOs, for those who are unaware, are industrial-sized livestock operations, meaning that animals are confined at least 45 days or more per year in an area without vegetation.

The main part about CAFOs, are that they produce *huge* amounts of animal sewage and other pollutants.

Woke up this morning feeling like @KamalaHarris was going to give the P E O P L E a Climate Plan.

She did.

Didn't know my heart could race as much as it did reading a policy document.✊🌎

This is a THREAD
This is not a new fight.

"When Indigenous Americans are leading to preserve our natural resources, not the oil companies seeking to destroy them...communities across our country have been fighting for the right to live in a clean environment for generations."
Remember where you came from.

"The United States is the single largest carbon polluter in history and we have benefited the most from the growth that came with burning fossil fuels. We must speak this truth and accept the responsibility."

Today was my son’s #FirstDayOfSchool Instead of the public school down the street I drove him 40 minutes to a private school for children with disabilities. With a ratio of 30:2 (30 four year olds!) with NO supports public education is out of the question. #CutsHurtKids
The past week has been hard. On Thursday I spoke with the public school and told them that no, my son would not be attending the school with the rest of his community. Today I drove in the opposite direction of the children that would have been in my sons class
I do not feel he could be safely supported with only 2 adults for the entire class. He has ASD, PICA, is non-verbal, is not toilet trained and a flight risk. There are two other high needs kids in his class, 27 other NT kids and no EA. #CutsHurtKids

Good morning everyone!!!!

Here are some of my favorite @KamalaHarris quotes to get your day started off right!

Thread: This gut wrenching article really underscores the urgency & importance of selecting a Dem candidate who will tangibly improve the lives of working Americans. Several policies in #Kamala's #3AMAgenda will tangibly make a difference for families like the Goodman family.
First issue: Rents are too high. Ms. Goodman makes $9/hr but her rent was $950/month. That is 66% of her income. #KamalasPlan called the Rent Relief Act will provide a tax credit caps rent & utilities at 30%. Non-partisan analysis determined RRA will lift 7.8M ppl out of poverty
Second issue: Stagnant wages
#Kamala supports raising the min wage to $15/hr but additionally, #KamalasPlan the LIFT Act would put $6,000/yr ($500 can be accessed monthly) in Ms. Goodman's pockets. Non-partisan analysis determined the LIFT Act lifts 9.6M ppl out of poverty

I’m asking a favor. Even if you don’t like me. Even if you hate my opinions.
PLEASE read this and consider what I’m saying. If you find some truth here, please retweet. This is a CALL TO ACTION for all resisters
On the matter of impeachment:
-The House has the power to Impeach
-Only the Senate has the power to remove potus from office
-without removal from office, impeachment is a slap on the wrist
-assuming that trump will care about impeachment is questionable logic
-impeachment without removal from office will do NOTHING to stop trump’s destruction of our country
-impeachment proceedings take a LONG time
-The House started official impeachment proceedings a few weeks ago
-Nadler announced this
-Nancy Pelosi’s job is to oversee the House

This poll is self funded and independent at a cost of 2mil+. We will end up with over 2000 responses and a very low margin of error. We're doing it because we have observed a general public distrust of poll data stemming from the 2 recent conflicting ones conducted. #forthepeople
But more importantly. It's transparent, the public can view the live results and we will be making all the raw data available including the GPS locations of where every single interview was conducted. Also the sampling plan showing the numbers polled in each constituency
the thing with survey/polling though is that they only capture explicit or stated responses. less than 5% of polls in the 2016 US elections got it right because people were afraid/hesitant to explicitly state their preference for the now potus. so we need to measure the implicit

#KamalaHarris is strikingly consistent in her beliefs and objectives in reforming the flawed criminal justice system.
This thread delves into a 2004 LA Times profile of #Kamala and how consistent her ideals then are with what she has accomplished over 15 yrs & still proposes.

#KamalaHarris was a trailblazer as a first in each office she held- SF DA, CA AG, US Senator. BUT let's keep it in perspective that each of these roles were in institutions that existed for over 140+yrs. Change is hard yet #Kamala accomplished a great deal

As the proud Representative from #CA12, it is my honor to welcome #DNCSummer19 to San Francisco!

Mirroring our great Democratic Party, we are a city that values community, that believes our strength is in our beautiful diversity and that understands our unity is our power! – NP
#DNCSummer19 is a chance to celebrate the Democratic Party’s legacy as a source of bold, innovative action that has improved the lives of the American people.

But even more importantly, we are committed to keep marching forward toward an even better future for our country!
The stakes could not be higher. Just as we did in 2018, Democrats have made the decision to win in 2020!

It is not going to be easy. We have to be ready to take a punch, but we also have to be ready – and we are – to throw a punch. For the children! #DNCSummer19
