People who believe that impeachment is not worth doing because it will fail in the Senate are thinking checkers. But this is a chess game. It's not about removing Trump from office. It's about having access to the full power of impeachment hearings to investigate Trump.

Progressives are hitting amazing new levels of.... interest, enthusiasm, engagement.
That's my take-away from my first day at NetRoots Nation in Philadelphia.

In the first American encyclopedia-- the Dobson Encyclopedia, printed between 1789 and 1798, which George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin all subscribed to, the entry for democracy is under 60 words and mostly refers to something the greeks did a few thousand years ago.

My take-- the Supreme Court is among the biggest enemies of democracy, the biggest enemies of the future of a free United States. Chief Justice Roberts has proven himself to be a totally partisan political hack. The five extreme right wing appointees have shown to have zero integrity. They are agents of the Republican party not arbiters of justice.
What's your take on this ruling?

The HBO mini-series on Chernobyl is a true horror story. It shows bureaucratic lying, incompetence, cowardice and idiocy, with decisions that cause the deaths of many thousands.
But there are over 1300 highly contaminated superfund sites. They are not as bad as Chernobyl or Fukushima, but they are bad & the may have killed or are killing people. What we can learn from HBO's Chernobyl mini-series is how bad these sites can be

It's great to see that lawyers are advertising, fishing for client cases to sue #Bayer/ #Monsanto for suffering and damages due to #Roundup and or #glyphosate .

Essential words from the report:
"If we had confidence the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so."
"Charging the president with a crime was not an option we could consider."
"Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse the president."
It is time to open impeachment hearings.

I did my first book signing on Sunday, May 26th, at Barnes & Noble, Willow Grove. It's an exciting part of becoming an author. But I wasn't sure when I was on the way. After all, it was scheduled on Memorial day weekend and I was kind of bummed.

There are excellent reasons to consider the likelihood that the reports of great economic news are not true-- that they are either direct lies or based on misleading use of statistics. This is how honest news reporters and analysts should be responding to the glowing claims coming out of the Trump government.

This is a law that ends up being highly racist and discriminatory. It should be a federal law that every US citizen has a right to vote. Think of it like you think of freedom of speech-- another constitutionally guaranteed right. A true defender of the constitution will defend bigots and haters rights to free speech. The same should be true for the right to vote.

There is a growing list of Trump appointees and administration people who are refusing to subpoenas to appear before congress. Trump is stonewalling and saying there will be no cooperation. It is time to show Trump and the American people that the Democrats were elected to control the House for a reason, and that they are going to do their job.
(16 comments) Wednesday, April 24, 2019 Impeachment Is Not Just About the Conviction. There are Different Fruits
Impeachment is not just about the trial and conviction in the senate, far from it. There are different fruits to be harvested.
There are many politicians and pundits who are only focusing on the idea that impeachment in the house is only meaningful if the senate finishes the job and removes Trump.
That's just so wrong.
