So strange that these are the demeanors of folks supporting Donald Trump at one of his rallies when he is the installed president presumably making all their dreams come true. Why are they so angry? They won, right? Shouldn’t they be happy?

The other question is: Why is Trump having rallies? There’s this N-word that has been floating around – not the one you think.

Whereas here is what the 22nd evening of protest at the Kremlin Annex in Moscow-on-the-Potomac looked like last night.

Rosie O’Donnell brought 55 Broadway performers with her to sing.

I should point out that these artists did this on the one night a week that they have off. Broadway shows do not run on Mondays because at least one weekend day and also on Wednesdays they do both a matinee and an evening performance. So they did this on their only night off. They also said they would be back on another Monday. Thank you! Profusely!

The other day, Brassy Rebel said in a comment that we are in the Upside Down. Protesters are partying nightly having a great time. Rally-goers on the prevailing side appear miserable and angry. So what’s up? And what’s down?

Can’t get to Moscow-on-the-Potomac for the protests? That’s OK. These nice folks will put your name on the Kremlin Annex Sign! Easy as one-two-three! Then you are represented. If you do get to visit, you can highlight your name on the sign.

Tune in tonight! It’s Robert Mueller’s birthday. There will be bagpipes! I hope there will also be drums!

I don’t know why I waited so long to post about this. I guess I thought people would know, but I discovered last night that a lot of people did not.  Also, it is not about Hillary. That’s OK. I think she has been there with us from the first night in spirit. It’s a happy, optimistic, inclusive spirit.  An American one.

Hillary was honored for her gun safety activism at the Giffords Law Center in San Francisco. Congratulations, Mme. Secretary!

 

Hillary Clinton Honored With Courageous Leadership Award in SF

​Hillary Clinton received a standing ovation during her appearance at a gun violence prevention even in San Francisco on Thursday night.

The former U.S. Secretary of State under President Barack Obama spoke at the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence 25th anniversary dinner, where former Rep. Gabby Giffords awarded Clinton the Courageous Leadership Award for her ongoing efforts to strengthen common sense gun laws.

Clinton said her gun safety position made her a target of the gun lobby during her campaign for president.

Hillary Clinton, in SF visit, calls gun safety ‘a political necessity’

Updated 11:02 pm, Thursday, June 14, 2018

Speaking to an audience of gun control advocates in San Francisco, Hillary Clinton said Thursday that this year’s voting for members of Congress should “finally be the election that turns the tide against the gun lobby.”

“The vast majority of Americans are on our side,” the former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate said at a Hyatt Regency dinner gathering of the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, which presented her with its Courageous Leadership Award. “So we are winning the debate. But now we’ve got to get everyone to vote on this issue.”

“It will not be easy,” she said, recalling the National Rifle Association’s multimillion-dollar participation in the 2016 presidential campaign.

President Trump, Clinton said, “did everything he could to ingratiate himself with the gun lobby, and is now doing everything he can to gut existing laws.” She cited his approval of legislation last year that allowed some mentally disabled people to buy guns and his removal of the names of 500,000 fugitives from the federal background check system.

File this under “you can’t make this stuff up.”


Bernie Sanders on Wednesday blamed Hillary Clinton for not doing more to stop the Russian attack on the last presidential election. Then his 2016 campaign manager, in an interview with POLITICO, said he’s seen no evidence to support special counsel Robert Mueller’s assertion in an indictment last week that the Russian operation had backed Sanders’ campaign.

The remarks showed Sanders, running for a third term and currently considered a front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, deeply defensive in response to questions posed to him about what was laid out in the indictment. He attempted to thread a response that blasts Donald Trump for refusing to acknowledge that Russians helped his campaign — but then holds himself harmless for a nearly identical denial.

In doing so, Sanders and his former campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, presented a series of self-serving statements that were not accurate, and that track with efforts by Trump and his supporters to undermine the credibility of the Mueller probe.

Setting the Record Straight on the 17 Intel Agencies

July 7, 2017 by still4hill

Just to keep the record straight, here are the 17 intel agencies that we have been hearing about since Hillary Clinton brought them up during one of the debates.

I am not particularly worried about Bernie running in 2020. I asked this question and got this answer.

Q: How many public high schools are there in Vermont?

A: There are 149 high schools in Vermont, made up of 83 public schools and 66 private schools. Vermont ranks as the 50th state in terms of student enrollment and 48th in terms of total number of schools. It ranks 2nd for the student/teacher ratio and sits 8th for the percentage of students on free or reduced lunches.
high-schools.com/directory/vt/

This may not sound like a lot of high schools but bear in mind that the population of Vermont is 623,657 (2017) as opposed to 8,537,673 (2016) in New York City. That works out to 7.3% of the population of NYC.

Sometimes the oddest, most random stars align.

The Stoneman Douglas students and their allies among high school students nationwide will, I am confident, make sure the VT high school students know about Bernie’s connections to and donations from the NRA as well as his voting record on gun control. They will make sure eligible students register and vote. I am pretty sure he is not long for the Senate in this respect much less the Oval Office.

Blame Hillary? Give me a break! Jeff Weaver? Give me another break!

The kids are all right. They’ve got this now. It’s not the revolution Bernie imagined. But it is a revolution. In fact, it is not even partisan! It is positional. Where do you stand on AR-15s? That is their question. Heads will roll in November. It is very premature to talk about 2020.

Here are some scenes from Saturday’s events across the country.


And Trump did what he typically does – what dictators do. He tried to transform the story into something pro-him.

You are not the hero of this movement, you liar! SHE is.

THEY are!

Here is what SHE said!

Hillary Clinton and Onward Together have every reason to celebrate last night’s election results along with all Democrats. If you supported Onward Together, you heard from her today. If you haven’t supported them yet, perhaps you want to consider it. The Big Blue Wave began last night. Let’s keep it going all the way through this year. 2018 is just around the corner now.  Look for Hillary with Seth Meyers on Late Night tonight!

Last night, we were reminded what is possible when we come together and fight for what we believe in.

With the support of Onward Together, 40% of the candidates that Run for Something endorsed and supported won their races in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and more — compared to the 10% rate at which first-time candidates usually win. 86 women trained by Emerge America won last night, including nine of the seats flipped in Virginia. Color of Change PAC was instrumental in winning the district attorney race in Philadelphia. And Indivisible groups made more than 600,000 calls into Virginia to help pull out a win for Ralph Northam, Justin Fairfax, and Mark Herring.

This year hasn’t been what any of us had hoped it would be. In fact, it’s been frustrating and, at times, painful. But we never lost faith in our vision of an America where our children and grandchildren can grow up safe and loved, and with every opportunity they deserve.

To those of you who worked your hearts out for these victories, including our friends on the ground in Virginia, New Jersey, and more: thank you. I am so proud to be on your team.

As we celebrate today, we also have to remember the work ahead of us. The groups that Onward Together supports — including Swing Left, which is focused on taking back the House — have been making incredible progress in the fight for 2018 and beyond. We saw again last night that we are at our strongest when we stand together.

Take a moment to celebrate, then consider donating $25 to Onward Together to support this work in the months and years ahead — we really need you now more than ever.

Onward!

Hillary

Thank Hillary for her hard work and leadership on Twitter! #ThankYouHillary is TRENDING!!!!
