Hey FAIR - you're better off putting that promoted tweet $$ into buying bricks, because Mexico isn't paying for it, and neither are WE.
What Trump is referring to here is a conspiracy theory and a lie. A grotesque one at that. In fact, Politifact gave it a "Pants on Fire" rating over a year ago --> http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2016/feb/23/donald-trump/donald-trump-cites-dubious-legend-about-gen-pershi/
"I'd rather have my child, but by golly, if I gotta give her up, we're gonna make it count." A mother should never have to attend her daughter's memorial. In awe of how passionate and courageous Heather's mother is. We stand with you.
Our President is a coward. If he isn't willing to put a group of Nazis and white supremacists on a "moral plane" then I will. There are not two sides to this. There is good and evil. Right and wrong. And you, Sir, are standing on the wrong side. We will remember where you stood.
This picture brings tears to my eyes. As a father of four, I always strive to teach my children love, compassion, and understanding above all else. There is nothing “everyday” about racism and intolerance. We must stand up to it, preach against it, and teach our children to love others. They are the future of this world.
Over the last five years, DACA has helped nearly 800,000 young people pursue higher education, earn better wages, and buy homes. It's good for our economy, and represents who we are: a nation of immigrants that welcomes those who want to pursue the American dream. #SaveDACA
Hate remains a powerful force used by the cowardly and weak. With torches in their hands, white supremacists took to the streets and flooded Virginia's roads with racism, and bigotry chanting “white lives matter” and “Jews will not replace us” at a Charlottesville rally. It is up to each one of us to speak up and speak out against this kind of hate and ignorance. Engage with those around you, talk to people who are different than you. Never let what someone looks like, who they love, or where they come from define your opinion of that person. We cannot let this be America.
“I couldn't in good conscience send Department of Justice lawyers in to defend the Executive Order that I did not believe was grounded in truth.” - Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates Thank you for your commitment to justice and our Constitution.
This new survey shows people are willing to postpone elections based on Trump's voter fraud claims. Few things to remember: 1) This survey is based on a completely unfounded claim. Our President has yet to produce a scrap of credible evidence and has wasted tax payer money and resources hunting for it. 2) Our democracy is a fragile thing and should be treated with great care. The news can be exhausting and overwhelming, but it's important to always know the facts.
Teaching LGBTQ-inclusive sex education reduces the rate of bullying and harassment in our schools. Educators and school administrators should be working to make school a safe and expressive space, not finding ways to isolate our children.
ICYMI: "3. Bad news for California. Warming will probably bring further reductions in winter and spring snowpack, which the state depends on for much of its water supply. If greenhouse gas emissions remain high and few steps are undertaken to better manage water resources, chronic long-lasting shortages — or hydrological drought — are possible by 2100."
Donald Trump's latest failure of a bill is...not surprisingly... completely mislead and serves no purpose beyond firing up his far right wing supporters. Contrary to what the President would like us all to believe, immigration actually boosts productivity and economic growth. Do not be fooled. This level of blind hostility undercuts our nation's values.
Protecting our environment is an issue that should transcend all politics. It's about protecting our planet, our kids, our food, and our health for generations to come. Thank you, Governor Brown for your leadership!
We already knew that the vast majority of ordinary Americans don't share Donald Trump's repulsive bigotry toward the LGBTQ community. It's important to remember though that he ALSO doesn't speak for most military families, who believe our transgender brothers and sisters should be able to serve their country just like anyone else.
I want to be absolutely clear: Today's reckless decision by President Trump is the height of cruelty and ignorance. He has weakened our country, and we are all less safe for his cowardice. Military leaders, decorated veterans, and members of Congress from both parties have rightly come together to condemn what is - by the administration's own admission - a cheap, cynical ploy to rally the darkest corners of Trump's base against yet another invented domestic enemy. There is NO basis to Trump's claim that the service of Patriotic transgender people impacts our military readiness. On the contrary, the President today has weakened our military and by doing so, diminished both our security and our standing in the world community. Of course, we know that America's security (and America's global leadership) is not what this President cares about, nor has it ever been. And so it is left to us, the PEOPLE of this country to care even more... to fill the void that he leaves every single day. So please, today, tomorrow, and every day going forward - stand with your brothers and sisters of every race, religion, and gender that is a target of this administration's cruelty. Support those organizations that are on the front lines against Trump's hate agenda. Reach out to those in your community who everyday wake up fearing the worst.... and make sure they know that there is no tweet, no executive order, no act of sanctioned aggression that will make you turn your back. Our collective commitment to justice and equality is stronger than their fear and even their hate. But we must NEVER waiver in our values. We must NEVER hedge in our humanity. And we must ALWAYS be unflinching in our commitment to those whose lives are at stake.
