Some #TuesdayThoughts. It has been thoroughly frustrating trying to reach these people. They do not respond to reason or evidence and they absolutely will not be swayed until they are ready. Make your peace with that and let's get back to work. #BeAVoter #VoteBlueAndBringAFriend
An anguished question from a Trump supporter: "Why do liberals think Trump supporters are stupid?"

The serious answer: Here’s what we really think about Trump supporters the rich, the poor, the malignant & the innocently well-meaning, the ones who think and the ones who don't...
That when you saw a man who had owned a fraudulent University, intent on scamming poor people, you thought "Fine."

That when you saw a man who had made it his business practice to stiff his creditors, you said, "Okay."

A DHS report finds the GOP’s “zero tolerance” border policy was incompetent and indifferent towards the separated children.

860 held in cells longer than the 72 hour legal limit, many in chain linked pens.

A party so cruel to children can’t be trusted with anything. #BeAVoter
The DHS Office of Inspector General’s review found at least 860 migrant children were left in cells longer than the 72-hour limit set by U.S. courts, one confined for 12 days and another for 25.…
The Trump admin transports hundreds of detained children cross country in the middle of the night toward a tent city in TX, as shelters exceed maximum capacity.

13,000 children are in custody, a 5 fold increase from last year. The largest in US history.…

Why does the GOP promote and support Predators?

Predators find it easy to prey on any group to enrich or further empower the powerful. So, supporting those predators is a sure way to be funded.

Most of all, the nature of predation is conservative. A thread. /1
Conservatism is the opposite of progress. Conservatives seek to maintain existing power structures, because they’re the ones who benefit from them.

Name any issue in which society has progressed, and conservatives have stood against them. /2
Whether we talk about civil, woman’s or gay rights, empowering the poor, or democracy itself, conservatives have stood against progress. They hate the concept of social justice, because it seeks to empower the powerless, and threaten their privilege. /3

Kavanaugh has a 2nd accuser. Senate GOP heard last week, & pushed to rush his confirmation. They knew of 2 accusations of assault, and wanted him on the court anyway.

The GOP intimidate victims to stay silent & protect the careers of white, male predators. Enough. #BeAVoter
Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer with the story of Kavanaugh’s 2nd accuser. The GOP knew about her, and pushed to rush confirmation.

Kavanaugh, Moore, Jordan, Trump. The GOP supports and enables predators.

“Boys will be boys,” as long as they’re white.…
We are closer than ever to thwarting this nomination. Call volume is everything!

The GOP aren’t hostile to Dr. Ford because they think she’s a liar. If they believed that, they would welcome an FBI investigation to clear his name.

They’re hostile towards her because they know she’s telling the truth.
Brett Kavanaugh is a predator.
That suits them. #BeAVoter
I’m sick of men’s opinions on how Dr. Ford is mistaken, or a liar. Men who haven’t met her, don’t know what happened.

They know she’s not lying. They think women should be expected to endure what she did as a right of passage. 🤮

The time for predators is over. #TimesUp
Please don’t be sick of hearing this, because it’s so important. You need to call you Senators and tell them to vote no on Kavanaugh. There are some key GOP wavering. Call volume must be high! #StopKavanaugh

Amazing what the GOP can do when motivated. Like finding 65 women to defend Kavanaugh, accused of forcing himself on an under age woman when attending an ALL MALE HS, in a day.

Shame the people of PR, or struggling to afford health care, don’t interest them as much. #BeAVoter
Confirmation on Kavanaugh is scheduled for next week. Keep calling you Senators.

Between the perjury, the questions of how he payed off his debt, the emails showing his views on Roe, and the sexual assault charges, Kavanaugh is a no! #StopKavanaugh
Murkowski and Collins are still the best bets for the 2 votes needed to #StopKavanaugh, and they’re receiving calls from everyone.

According to a new survey, 59% of millennials want Democrats to control Congress. Unfortunately, only 55% will definitely or probably vote this Nov. 25% aren’t sure.

Are you a millennial? Do you have one in your life? They have the power to decide this election. Tell them that.
Want affordable health care? Want sensible gun reform to make schools safe? How about affordable college? How about a tax code that doesn’t grossly favor the super rich?

All reasons to #BeAVoter. Engage with the millennials in your life. Let them know how high the stakes are.
While your at it, engage with everyone in your life, friends, family, millennial or other.

Frustrated that @SenSchumer isn’t fighting 15 Trump nominees to the bench?

Consider this. Dems have no procedural method to block these nominees.

Releasing Senate Dems to campaign for a majority that will allow them to block future nominees is a better use of time than stunts.
Beware of the big name opportunists bashing Democrats for making the pragmatic choice that can lead to real results in order to boost their own cred. It’s dangerously self serving, and an indication that they’re in this fight for their own gain alone. 👊
Stay United. #BeAVoter

2,795 Americans died in Puerto Rico as a result of Hurricane Maria, 46 times greater than the Gov’s toll of 64.

It took FEMA 2 weeks to give aid to Texas after Harvey, but 42 days for PR under Trump’s management!

Trump gave himself an A+

2,975 people died in PR in the five months after Hurricane Maria last September. This makes it one of the highest death tolls for an Atlantic hurricane in the past 100 years.

Trump said it wasn’t a real catastrophe, like hurricane Katrina.…
Under Trump’s management, it took FEMA 2 weeks to roll out aid to Texas after hurricane Harvey. It took 42 days to fully authorize aid for PR.

A pattern of neglect, with racial overtones that are undeniable.…

Trump’s own EPA warns that GOP proposed coal rules are a disaster for American health.

1,400 more pre-mature deaths annually, 15,000 new cases of upper-resp problems. All for an industry that employs less people than Arby’s.

The GOP isn’t about jobs, it’s about greed. #BeAVoter
The shrinking coal industry employs 76,000. Clean energy is a growing field of more than 3.2 million.

Dems want America to lead the world in modern energy, investing in training for jobs in demand.

GOP offers a red tide of disease and pollution.

Better make it BLUE. #BeAVoter
The cost of new EPA coal rules: up to 1,400 more pre-mature deaths per year from heart and lung disease, with 15,000 new cases of upper respiratory problems. In contrast, Obama era rules were found to prevent between 1,500 and 3,600 deaths per year.…

The WH fired a speechwriter for speaking at a white nationalist conference in 2016.

What about Stephen Miller?

👉2006 Attended an Academic Freedom Conference of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, SPLC designated hate group. /1
👉Associates with Center for Immigration studies, SPLC designated hate group.
👉Author of white nationalist policy, including curbing LEGAL immigration, child separation, Muslim ban.

The GOP admin is full of racist, bigots and hate mongers lethal to the American dream. /2
A Dem led Congress would put an end to the sinister GOP legislative agenda. A Dem led Senate could halt the flow of ideologues to the bench with a rubber stamp for Trump’s agenda.

You can take a stand against the hatred.

In Nov, you have the power. Use it. #BeAVoter. /3

THE GOP HAS GONE OFF THE RAILS, and they’re not afraid to show it.

GOP AZ Senate candidate is hitting the road with racist & Pizzagate dean Mike Cernovich.

AZ: If you want conspiracy peddlers, vote GOP.

Want a Senator more in touch with reality?
Better vote @kyrstensinema
This year, the GOP is running 5 all out white supremacists or NAZIs, a child molestation enabler, & a President that brags about sexual assault.

AZ candidate Kelli Ward is proud to campaign with Mike Cernovich. “He has an audience we want to reach.”…
AZ primary election Tuesday, Aug 28. #BeAVoter

@kyrstensinema knows the challenges facing AZ families.

The specific results #OH12 are less important than this:

GOP held it since 1983. In 2016 Trump won by 11 pts, GOP House candidate won by 40.

Today the gap is less than 2,000 votes. Seat up again in Nov.


We need every vote! #BeAVoter #WednesdayWisdom

Trump plans to revoke CA’s authority to regulate auto emmissions. Huge payoff to big oil.

It’s far too late to take such a huge step back on emissions standards, our children will suffer greatly for it, but science means nothing to these dolts.

Meanwhile, in a quest to shrink national monuments last year, the Interior Dept dismissed evidence of their benefits, such as increased tourism and archeological discovery. Instead, Ryan Zinke and aides focused on money to be made by stripping them.…
Trump will revoke CA’s authority to regulate auto emissions and mandate to sell elec cars. This will trigger prolonged court battles and uncertainty that auto manufacturers don’t want. As largest US auto market, most use CA standards as a benchmark.…

MN Rep Jason Lewis can’t call women sluts anymore, & that makes him sad.

A history of demeaning women on his obnoxious radio show, said women voting based on birth control were not human beings and had no brains. Charming.

#MN02 is rated a toss up.
#BeAVoter Vote @AngieCraigMN
"Does a woman now have the right to behave -- I know there's a double standard between the way men chase women and running around -- But it used to be that women were held to a little bit of a higher standard. We required modesty from women.”

Swell guy.…
Angie Craig needs your help to beat Jason Lewis in Nov. Every family deserves a fantastic education, including affordable higher ed or job training, a livable wage, and affordable health care.

She’s also a gay woman who has raised 4 amazing sons.

The WH has announced that Putin will visit America in the fall, because one colossal embarrassment on the world stage is never enough.

Possible bonus: will the catastrophe play out just before the midterms?

These people really have no clue what they’re doing. #FridayFeelings
Moscow boasts stack of agreements Trump made Putin in private. 4 days later, NOBODY KNOWS.
Pentagon and State scramble. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Dems want interpreter to brief Congress, GOP continue to block. Why know what he promised a murderous dictator?

Dems move to subpoena the interpreter present at private Trump/Putin meeting to discover what was promised.

GOP blocks.

We need a Dem controlled Congress to perform real oversight of Trump.

Brett Kavanaugh is Trump’s pick for SCOTUS. A conservative activist who’s been at the center of every conservative cause of the past 20 years, he’ll likely make a mockery of the conservative creed against “activist judges.”

Here’s what we can and can’t do about this. (Thread)
First, let’s be clear on who this guy is. He worked in the Ken Starr investigation, and helped write the Starr Report. He was a key activist during the 2000 FL recount, pushing to end it in favor of Bush. Before Bush appointed him to the bench in 2003, he had had no judicial exp.
Most importantly, Trump’s pick of Kavanaugh serves his needs. In 2009, he argued that the president should be exempted from both criminal prosecution and civil suits while in office, arguing that the latter should be delayed until he leaves the presidency.…
