New Poll: Xochitl a toss up, MLG pulling away, Beto is closing in, ways you can help with Beto win, update on NM races, research-based response to Trump’s baseless vitriol about refugees a comment on his moving troops to the border, and a national boycott called on all Fox News Sponsors for its ongoing reporting…
PRC, once again gets it wrong, but this time you can do something about it. Also some shocking historic numbers that make Trump’s “onslaught” look pretty manageable. Also a short report on our canvassing for Abbas Saturday.
“America First” policy will require the US to adopt unimaginably selfish policies, ignoring responsibility for worldwide poverty and consequences of climate change that will make the current border crisis seem mild. CNN video of the refugees being attacked with tear gas at the Mexican border is offered at the end of the post.
[Late breaking: Monica Youngblood guilty of Aggravated DWI.] Anita Hill commented recently that she felt we had learned much from #metoo and that charges of sexual assault would be taken more seriously. Maybe among most of America, but the GOP and its despicable President are doubling down on Kavanaugh. We must make them pay.
Michael Moore fears an apocalyptic dictatorship and no election in 2020. As this report suggests, he may be right. Time to make Trump THE issue in the Mid-Terms. It may be our last chance.
Obama and Trump take turns trumpeting about the ‘recovery’ but for most of the US, recovery is a rumor, not a reality and a financial precipice is perilously nearby. This post presents an alternative for measuring economic recovery.
Mid-term election update, plus a report on slavery in America today, for profit prisons with inmates working for pennies on the dollar. Plus an opportunity to meet & support Matthew McQueen in Dist. 50.
Perhaps the most inspiring 2 days of the trip has been in Austin. Many lessons for how to truly engage and support formerly chronically homeless folks. Also a call to action at the City Council Wednesday. Call, email, attend.
Two actions sought today: support for adoption of sensible ID laws in NM and a call for the City to engage in meaningful outreach and planning with youth, low-income workers and working families. You are needed today.
Everywhere we go on the Road Trip, cities are grappling with affordable housing crunches much like those in Santa Fe. Today, we share some general themes and what is being done in cities across the nation and how they apply to NM.
