Daily, it is as if someone has asked him if he possibly could be a little more repellent and disgusting.

Poll: Trump presidency would embarrass half of Americans

Lisa Hagen

While half of all polled would be embarrassed to have Trump as president, the majority of that sentiment comes from Democrats and independents.

For Republicans, 44 percent would be proud to have Trump in the White House, twice as much as GOP voters who would be embarrassed.

Friends –

Today is Human Rights Day. As a lifelong advocate for human rights, Hillary understands the importance of protecting and expanding the rights of everyday Americans and people around the world.

To celebrate Human Rights Day, Let’s Talk Hillary sat down with Aprill Springfield Blanco, who worked in the First Lady’s office when Hillary delivered her historic speech at the UN Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing. In the video, Aprill talks about the strong opposition Hillary faced from people urging her not to go to the Beijing conference — and you’ll never believe what Hillary said in response.

Check out Let’s Talk Hillary’s latest video to find out!

Don’t keep it to yourself – share Let’s Talk Hillary with friends.

There are many more stories to tell – stay tuned!

Sincerely,

Still —

Carly Fiorina owes an apology to Planned Parenthood and the millions of women and men it serves.

She should apologize for maliciously describing a video that doesn’t exist and, when confronted with that lie, doubling down on it.

She should apologize for her despicable lies on Sunday that Planned Parenthood is “aborting fetuses alive to harvest their brains.”

She should apologize for using her position as the only woman in the GOP field to actually lead, instead of stop, the war on women.

But you and I know Carly Fiorina won’t apologize. Just like she never apologized to the 30,000 HP workers she fired while shipping their jobs overseas and taking a huge payout for herself.

Well, I know the best way for us to send Fiorina a message. We can do everything in our power to elect women who will stand with Planned Parenthood and fight back against the GOP’s war on women.

Will you send a message to Fiorina and other Republicans waging the war on women by contributing $10 or more to PAC for a Change today?

The House GOP already has three — yes, three — committees investigating Planned Parenthood, and Cecile Richards, the organization’s president, is even testifying today.

None of these committees has found a shred of evidence that Planned Parenthood is doing anything other than providing cancer screenings, contraceptives, and other critical health care for the women and men that rely upon it every day.

So, are they closing down their bogus investigation? No. Instead, they have just announced that they are going to create a new fourth committee to investigate Planned Parenthood.

soEnough. It is time to end this war on Planned Parenthood and women across America.

It is time to make clear that this is 2015, not 1915.

Contribute $10 or more to PAC for a Change today to stop the war on women and help elect progressive women across the country.

If we stand together, we can fight back — and win.

In Friendship,

Barbara Boxer
U.S. Senator

The irony would be sublime if it were not so disgusting to see the only woman on that GOP stage standing on an anti-female platform.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Hillary Clinton’s Famous Beijing Speech

Hillary Clinton at the United Nations Fourth World Conference On Women, 1995

20 years ago, I got the chance to be part of a moment that would change the world. I was in Huairou, China, a small town outside of Beijing, where representatives from non-governmental organizations who couldn’t attend the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women had gathered. When Hillary Clinton stood before delegates from 189 countries to call attention to women’s rights, it was electric.

Women from every corner of the planet had come to Beijing and Huairou for the conference. Everywhere I looked, I saw women translating ideas across languages and cultures. I remember watching women lift up colleagues in wheelchairs when meeting spaces didn’t have elevator access.

We were all determined to be there.

Hillary Clinton will sit down with veteran NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell on Friday for the third national interview of her presidential campaign.

The exclusive interview, which will first air on Mitchell’s 12 p.m. MSNBC program, comes one day ahead of the 20th anniversary of Clinton’s Beijing speech on women’s rights, which Mitchell covered for the network in 1995.

“Mitchell will ask the former Secretary of State about her presidential campaign, the GOP field, her email controversy” as well as the Beijing speech, NBC News said in a press release.

U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton vows to "keep fighting for equal pay for equal work" for women. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).

U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton vows to “keep fighting for equal pay for equal work” for women. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).

This really matters to me

When Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Frederick Douglass, and 97 other brave women and men signed their names to the Declaration of Sentiments in Seneca Falls 167 years ago today, they sparked a movement that altered the course of history.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident,” they wrote, “that all men and women are created equal.” All men and women — incredible how just two words could change millions of lives.

We cannot forget the heroes who went to jail and even died to give women the right to vote, earn and keep wages, own property, serve in the military, and hold elected office. We owe it to our daughters and granddaughters to continue the march of progress in America and around the world.

I’ve been fighting for these ideals for my entire career — and I want to take that fight all the way to the White House. Will you stand with me?

We must keep fighting for equal pay, especially for women of color, who often lose out the most. We must fight for equal access to good jobs, good health care, and good child care, for the rights of women to make our own reproductive health decisions, and to make sure that every little girl in America can be anything she wants when she grows up — even President of the United States.

The full participation of women and girls in our society is more than an issue of fairness; it’s also a smart way to grow our economy. When women aren’t paid fairly, families lose out on thousands of dollars every year that could go toward paying for groceries or rent, saving for retirement, or sending a child to college. When we fight for equality, we fight for a better future for all of our children.

Sign your name to declare your support for equality and pledge to redouble our efforts to finish the work that began in Seneca Falls:

Hillary

Christine Quinn comes from a very personal place to explain in language anyone can understand, without a lot of frills,  Hillary’s evolution on marriage equality.

Christine Quinn on Hillary Clinton & Marriage Equality

Christine Quinn

Clinton has come to understand same-sex marriages the same way most Americans have evolved regarding the reality that everyone deserves marriage equality

Today, we have a woman running for President of the United States who fully supports marriage equality. She is also likely to be the only nominee running for president that does. That is something all Americans should be thrilled about. Her position is clear and rock solid, and they way she came to that conclusion is the same way most people do, including some of my own family members. Like most Americans, her position is one that evolved and developed from personal interactions with LGBT Americans and their families, and through a long and deep soul searching. I know a little bit about this process: It’s how my father came to support my right to marry and then eventually walk me down the aisle when I married my wife.

Read more >>>>

The media likes to present the process of coming to new terms on old issues as flip-flopping.  It is not.   I saw my own father, who was employed by the defense industry, evolve on the Viet Nam War.   Quinn describes the process perfectly.  It is deeply personal, and while there often is a material or concrete side to the question there is usually a profoundly spiritual or abstract personal one as well.

Don’t we want leaders who reflect on important issues that affect people’s lives?  While some in the media preoccupy themselves with some calendar where they tick off days since Hillary Clinton has responded to a question from the press, Hillary Clinton is on the road listening to Americans – to our concerns, our aspirations,  our perceptions,  and our positions.  She will respond to the noisy media who pretend to be the voice of the people in due time after she has spent some time listening to us and reflecting upon what she has heard.

05-14-14-TW-03

Evolving is not flip-flopping.  It is a process.  Where do you stand?  How do you feel?  What is your position?

  • On marriage equality?
  • On pay equality?
  • On arms and ammunition control?
  • On capital punishment?
  • On the role of women in civil society?
    • In business?
    • In government?
    • In making their own health decisions?
  • On hundreds of other issues and questions….

Have these positions remained stable for you or have they changed over time?  Most of us have probably gone through some changes.  Why should Hillary Clinton be any different?  Would you even want a leader who neither listens nor reflects?

Hillary for America

Friend —

With today’s vote to restrict a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions, Republicans in Congress have made it abundantly clear where their priorities lie:

Instead of helping everyday Americans and their families, these politicians are trying to take women back more than 40 years.

I’ll stand up for women and our right to access reproductive health care. Will you join me?

This bill puts women’s health and rights at risk. It undermines the role doctors play in personal health care decisions, and it burdens survivors of sexual assault.

It also follows a dangerous trend we are witnessing across the country. In just the first three months of 2015, more than 300 bills have been introduced in state legislatures — on top of the nearly 30 introduced in Congress — that restrict access to abortion.

Republicans won’t lift a finger to ensure paid family leave or increase access to quality childcare, but apparently they’ll waste time and taxpayer money to try and get between a woman and her doctor.

I’ve stood up for women and families my entire career. Safeguarding women’s reproductive health and rights is critical and deeply connected to building stronger families and a stronger America.

Add your name if you’ll take on this fight with me:

https://www.hillaryclinton.com/reproductive-health/

Thank you for joining me,

Hillary

And here’s a tweet.
