Hillary posted this message on Facebook and also Tweeted it.

Thanks and congratulations to all our Onward Together partners for two years of hard work that paid off in a big way this week.

These organizations are recruiting a new Democratic bench, defending rights, and organizing locally to fight for progressive policies that improve people’s lives. I’m so proud.

The Arena, The Collective PAC, Emerge America, and Run for Something have collectively recruited, trained, and supported hundreds of candidates up and down the ballot. They are building a Democratic bench, candidate by candidate and race by race.

Latino Victory and Voto Latino have worked to mobilize Latino voters and elect progressive Latino candidates, sending dozens of amazing candidates to office up and down the ballot.

Color Of Change and National Domestic Workers Alliance have spent the last two years waging campaigns to defend civil rights against the administration’s attacks and building powerful communities for change.

iVote has defended democracy itself, fighting hard against voter suppression and for secretaries of state and local measures that will make it easier for every American to exercise their right to vote.

Alliance for Youth Action, Indivisible Guide, and Swing Left set about organizing locally to mobilize young people and win back Congress. I truly don’t think we would have won back the House without them.

Thank you all for your service to your country. Take a well-deserved rest, and then let’s keep going.

Like our amazing partners, we’re just getting started. If you’d like to join our team, sign up here: onwardtogether.org

Hillary Clinton Monday urged her supporters to vote for a number of Democratic gubernatorial candidates campaigning in states currently run by Republican governors.

In her announcement, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee touted the importance of securing offices at the state level during this year’s midterms and highlighted five gubernatorial contenders she’s backing.

“Governors set the tone and direction for their states,” Clinton tweeted. “They’re also our last line of defense against some of the Trump administration’s worst policies.”

Run for Something shared this list of endorsements from Hillary. Handy reference.

Hillary Rodham Clinton endorses 19 RFS candidates

As early voting locations open across the country, Onward Together announces Secretary Clinton’s endorsement of 19 state and local candidates in the Run for Something program.

These candidates were selected for their inspiring commitments to improving their communities and bringing diversity and compassion to local office. Collectively, they have knocked on hundreds of thousands of doors and connected with voters who share our progressive values.

“Our candidates represent the change our country needs right now — thoughtful, compassionate, community-based leadership,” said Amanda Litman, co founder of Run for Something. “Their stories serve as inspiration for all of us to get out and make a difference.

In 2018, an unprecedented number of women are running for office — 476 women in primary elections and 256 in House and Senate races in the general election coming in just eight days.

With the chaos of the Trump administration, it’s easy to see what is motivating so many incredible women to step off the sidelines and run for public office. From economic inequality to protecting the Affordable Care Act to fighting for common sense gun safety, women are leading the charge to restore the balance of power in our country by speaking for the people of their communities.

But in order to turn these historic races into historic victories, these women need our help now. The strong and talented women below are already leaders in their communities. Give $10.48 right now now to help turn them from leaders into senators and representatives.

Lauren Underwood (IL-14)
Lauren Underwood is a registered nurse with hands-on experience in our health care system, and an experienced leader who has dedicated her career to expanding all Americans’ access to quality, affordable care. Lauren is dedicated to expanding economic opportunity for all Illinoisans and to creating good-paying jobs so that hardworking families and their communities can thrive. As someone with a pre-existing condition, Lauren knows firsthand what’s at stake as we defend the progress we’ve worked so hard to make in expanding access to quality, affordable health care. Illinois’ 14th District has never before been represented by a woman or an African American in Congress, and Lauren has what it takes to win and make history.

Jahana Hayes (CT-05)
Jahana Hayes is a teacher and community leader running for Congress to fight for working families in Connecticut. Jahana is running to expand economic opportunity and help create good-paying jobs for hardworking Nutmeggers. She has personally experienced the power of public education, and she is a strong advocate for expanding access to educational opportunity to help families and communities thrive. At a time when Republicans in Congress are desperate to undo all the progress we’ve worked so hard to make, Jahana is a fierce advocate for expanding access to quality health care. Jahana has what it takes to win and deliver this must-win seat for Democrats to take back the House in November. There are currently no people of color in New England’s congressional delegation, and Jahana is poised to change that.

Tina Smith (MN-Sen)
Tina Smith is a champion for Minnesota working families running for the United States Senate to continue fighting for economic opportunity and fairness. She was appointed to this seat because she was ready to lead from day one, and she is working tirelessly to tackle the toughest problems facing hardworking Minnesotans. Holding this seat is a critical step on the road to winning back the majority, and Republicans — emboldened by Trump’s strong performance in Minnesota in 2016 — are going to do everything in their power to defeat this champion for working families.

Your donation will be split among these three incredible candidates. Can you chip in right now to help get out the vote for Lauren, Jahana, and Tina in the final crucial days of the midterms?

Onward!

Hillary

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.

Women’s March 2018 Isn’t About Trump—It’s About Upending the Entire Political System

Jessica Morse has served on the front lines in Iraq. She’s hiked 500 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail by herself. But until a year ago, she never felt brave enough to run for office—to put her own name on a ballot and give herself over to public scrutiny.

“After the 2016 election, I felt like I’d seen what happens when women run for office,” Morse told Newsweek. “I thought, How could I run in this environment? How can I serve my community if my good record and merit don’t mean anything?”

Morse and millions of other women had just watched Hillary Clinton, one of the most qualified candidates to run for president, lose to Donald Trump, a reality-TV star and businessman whose campaign survived his boasting about grabbing women’s genitals and more than a dozen sexual assault allegations. The day of his election was a day of mourning for many women. But the day after was a day of action, with the Women’s March rallying 4.2 million protesters across the country, making it the largest single-day demonstration in modern U.S. history.

women’s march 2018

Last year, more than 4 million people across the globe marched in protest on January 21 for the inaugural Women’s March (which was not-coincidentally held the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration). Since then, there’s been a Women’s Strike, an onslaught of sexual-harassment allegations against powerful men, the rebirth of the #MeToo movement, and — unfortunately but not surprisingly — continued widespread discrimination against women and minorities.

There is still so much to fight for, and activists are hoping you’ll channel your rage into the second annual Women’s March weekend, coming up later this month. Here’s everything you need to know about the events.

This year, there are more than 200 Women’s March events planned around the world for Saturday, January 20, as well as a few additional events on Sunday, January 21.

Sidenote: We are rolling into 2018. No matter what happens in November, this remains an issue for the 2020 primaries.


The commission formed by Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders to review the Democratic nominating process is presenting its final report to the party’s rules committee this weekend. But party officials are still working to resolve their differences over key changes such as caucus rules and superdelegates.

As officials gather Friday and Saturday in Washington for a meeting of the party’s Rules and Bylaws Committee, one Clinton adviser is circulating a petition asking Democrats to reconsider a proposal aimed at favoring primaries over caucuses.

The Democratic operative and Clinton staffer, Adam Parkhomenko, released the petition on Friday, pointing members to a proposal that would require states with both caucuses and state-run primaries to use the results of the primary, not the caucus, to decide the number of delegates allocated to each candidate.

No, she isn’t slacking. I am the one who needed additional mental health time moving into the new year – which promises to be a bitch!

To start, no. We are not going to entertain the perpetual investigations into the Clinton Foundation which saves lives and eyesight, aids farmers – including and especially women farmers, provides access to safe food cookers, fights animal trafficking and poaching, and provides HIV-AIDS medication. Been there. Saw that. Nothing new to discover there.

Neither is there anything worth discussing about any private servers or emails. The fire at the Secret Service facility on the Clinton property did not erupt in a roomful of secret servers. It was a shorted bathroom fan that set off the alarm.

Hillary, meanwhile, is still fighting for Congress to pass CHIP, and you can join her in the battle here >>>>.

She also sent this email out.

 

Thank you again for your generous donation to Onward Together in 2017. With your help, we were able to support eleven groups doing critical work toward making our country stronger and more fair.

You’ve already been introduced to the first round of organizations. Today, I wanted to tell you a little bit about some of the newer members of the Onward Together family:

The organizers at iVote worked with partners on the ground to get automatic voter registration on the ballot in Nevada in 2017. 450 brand-new civic leaders and activists attended The Arena’s very first summit — and they’re on track to train 5,000 people by the end of 2018. At the Alliance for Youth Action, young people are using local organizing to address economic inequality, attacks on voting rights, and more. The team at Latino Victory Fund is working to elect more Latino candidates at every level of government. More than 400 students and leaders met last month at the Voto Latino Power Summit to share resources and tools for national advocacy. And with the help of Collective Future, 23 African-American candidates have been elected to local, state, and federal offices since August 2016.

Along with Indivisible, Color of Change, Emerge America, Swing Left, and Run for Something, I know these groups will continue to do the incredible work of making our democracy stronger in 2018, and I’m proud to be on their team. We’re only able to support these organizations because of you, so one more time, thank you.

If you’re still with us in 2018, add your name right now, and let’s do even more together.

Onward,

Hillary

So no. In 2018, you will not find unnecessary refutation of lies about Hillary, the Clintons, or the foundation. You will continue to see posts about Hillary’s work, words, and events. That is what this blog has always been about and we foresee no reason to leap into a cesspool just because the current administration and his party have tried to flush used Pampers down the White House lavatories.
