The Speaker Leads the Way

As important as it is to turn #IncompetentDonald out of Office, it is equally important to do everything possible to retain Democratic control in the House of Representatives and to gain a Democratic majority in the Senate.
Today I made a donation to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee
(dccc.org).  I would propose you do the same.  It doesn’t matter how much you are able to donate, but more is better.  My own was a small donation, but it was what I could afford.  Every penny will count.
Republican donors will spend hundreds of MILLIONS of dollars to keep Trump in office, retain the Senate and flip the House back to their control.  The party which controls the Senate, controls who gets approved (“confirmed”) to the Supreme Court.  The party which controls the House, controls the country’s purse strings AND whether or not a President should be impeached.
You also need to educate yourself about your Governor and State government.  2020 is when we (as a country) conduct our census and then the House seats are apportioned based on that count and your state government decides how those seats are voted on (“gerrymandering”) within a state.
Stand up!  Make a difference!  Donate and then vote!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced yesterday (5 Dec 2019), that the House is moving forward to draft articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump. “Our democracy is what is at stake.  The president leaves us no choice but to act.
As she was leaving the press briefing platform she was asked if she hated President Donald Trump.   Pelosi turned and pointed at the reporter asking the question and said:  “I don’t hate anybody.  We don’t hate anybody.  Not anybody in the world.  Don’t accuse me.
She returned to the podium to continue:  “I think the president is a coward when it comes to helping our kids who are afraid of gun violence.  I think he is cruel when he doesn’t deal with helping our dreamers.  I think he’s in denial about the climate crisis.
Impeachment, she emphasized, was about protecting the “Constitution of the United States,” rather than about policy disagreements or dislike of the president which could wait for the election.
As a Catholic, I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me.  I don’t hate anyone.
Speaker Pelosi continued, saying she prayed for the president, and, in fact did so every day.
As she turned to leave the stage she concluded: “So don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that.
