“This is terrible.
This is the end of my presidency.
...said the 100% innocent, completely and totally exonerated “president” upon hearing of the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
A revelation from the #Mueller Report.
There is no choice. This is beyond partisan politics.
Congress must do what they are constitutionally bound to do — and begin impeachment proceedings.
And we, the public, must do what is morally right… and support removing this man from the presidency. #dirtydonald is below the dignity of the office and profoundly unfit to hold it.
We must keep our eyes open… and not shut our mouths when we see corruption and injustice in plain sight.
Keep track of those in office who still support the “president” now that the Mueller Report is being made public — and remember them in November, 2020.
WE THE PEOPLE have the power.
WE can #VOTE to end all of this vile insanity and restore normalcy.
Our country was fooled once.
In 2020, more than ever, voters will want substance. #Trump will come up empty there. People want candidates who can deal with real issues… not those only capable of creating fake emergencies… The 2018 midterms were a step in the right direction… now we need the #WhiteHouse and Senate in 2020... To save #America we must hold to account the inept, corrupt and amoral unindicted co-conspirator in the oval office, #Individual1 : #illegitimate#failingpresident#DonaldTrump . #WashingtonDC#LoveTrumpsHate#NeverTrump#FOXNEWS#MSNBC#CNN#journalism#MoveOn#trumpprotest#NotMyPresident#politics#journalism#indivisible#metoo#makeamericagreatagain#MAGA#womensmarch#crazytown#bluewave
Every woman has a past. Some were physically abused. Some had violent parents. Some had pubertal issues. Some had sexual abuse as a child from their own family members. Some had messed up love stories. Some had been forced into sex in the name of love. Some had been drugged. Some were date raped. Some had been viciously photographed on bed. Some had been blackmailed by their ex-boyfriend. Some were in an abusive relationship. Some had menstrual problems. Some had a broken family. Some had a divorce. Some had an obesity issue. Some had financial droughts. Some had drug or alcohol addiction. Some had a few unsuccessful suicide attempts.
If you see a woman, who went through any of these but had already wiped her tears, tied her hair up, masked her sorrows with a divine smile, stood tall and strong, started walking towards her future because she still has some hope left inside her and has not given up on the concept of love that still exists in this world, do not stab her with her past. Do not confront her. Do not slap her with more abuse. Give way for her and walk beside her. May be hold her hands and walk for a while. You'll know how sweet that soul is and how strong her hopes are! You'll be amazed at how she carries herself after all her energy has been sucked out.
She need not always be only the woman next door or from a different home. She could be your own friend, your own sister, your own girlfriend, your own wife, even may be your own mother.
Do not judge her by her past. Gift her the peaceful future that she deserves. Hold her hands against the world, which knows only to judge. Give her the love that she always yearned for
THIS IS NOT A DRILL. SB 22 will ban local governments from partnering with planned parenthood. Women are already facing extreme restrictions and crossing state lines for access to abortions in some states (Missouri 🖕🏼). Protect women’s right to control their bodies. Contact your local representative today (link in bio) and ask them to STOP SB 22 #standwithplannedparenthood#womensmarch#fucktrumpfriday
Last weekend, #WomensMarch chapter leaders from all over the country convened in Chicago for an organizing retreat. They intervened when they witnessed CPD following and harassing a group of Black youth, and formed a barrier between the police and the teens. Here’s Deborah from @womensmarchillinois and Jasmine from @ohiowomensmarch speaking to one of the officers about discriminatory policing.
As youth anger over climate change mounts, protests are spreading around the globe, with students from Germany, Belgium and Australia rallying in massive numbers against their governments’ inaction over global warming. • • • • 🌱 🌱 🌱 🌱
It’s so important that us young people recognize our potential and use our joint power to enact meaningful change in society. • • •
