This morning I received an email from a reporter inquiring about a complaint filed with the FEC against Sierra Nevada Revolution. We are now seeking legal counsel and are confident this complaint will be quickly dismissed, but until that time comes, we are putting a hold on all activities and will not be sending any further emails or posting any content on any of our various online platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
I received the mailer announcing your run for reelection.
I was not surprised by the content of your flyer, stating things as fact, which are far from fact. "Tell a lie enough times and they will believe it." That's from Trump's book, "The Art of the Fraud", I believe, but of course he stole it from the Hitler regime.
We've been quiet on the mass-shooting in Florida today as we've been waiting for the latest updates to come in, and to hear from Congressman Tom McClintock as well as our three candidates running to replace him.
Throughout the budget negotiations, Tom McClintock remained silent on funding for the U.S. Forest Service. His stubborn stance on forest management by way of lumber companies and ranchers ignores the reality of wildfire and the solutions needed to prevent them. This is a dereliction of duty of the highest order, and lays bare his true motivation: Campaign donations.
We have been given permission, and are honored to share this essay by Kiana Brown-Coles, a 2018 Sacramento Women's March Youth Ambassador and winner of the 2018 Youth Essay Contest. Her words serve as a reminder of what it means to be leader, and that the future of our nation is in very capable hands.
On Tuesday, right-wing outlet The Washington Examiner published an opinion piece by Tom McClintock. We found the substance and timing of this article insensitive given the national uproar surrounding Trump's "sh**hole" comments. The problem of course, isn’t that Trump has concerns about the state of affairs in these struggling nations. Rather, it is the fact that he has a problem with the people from these countries. McClintock has yet to provide any response, and his silence can only be interpreted as support for the President's position on immigration.
So, this 4-page mailer of yours showed up in our mailbox today. It's positioned as a sort of "State of the District" update and states quite clearly that it was "prepared, published and mailed at taxpayer expense." However, your brochure is a little more than a campaign mailer, rife with propaganda. Let's step through this one bit at a time:
2017 might seem like a year worth forgetting. The list of horribles is breathtaking in its length and scope. For all the bad things to happen this year, there was one good thing that should give us all hope as we head into 2018: The birth of the Resistance.
2017 will be remembered as the year we came together and took a stand to oppose Trump and the GOP, and spoke out forcefully against their regressive policies and ideals.
Indivisible has been, and will continue to be an integral part of how we take back control of our government, but if we are to grow our numbers we must broaden our appeal to voters who may not identify with grassroots activism. We must establish our own, unique identity and speak with a collective voice that resonates with mainstream voters. Therefore, starting today we have a new name and a new look:
We are now Sierra Nevada Revolution
McClintock and other GOP members of Congress keep insisting that their new tax plan will "revive" the economy and create jobs in much the same way that Reagan's tax cuts did in the 1980's. In this post, author Jane Sweet takes us down memory lane for a closer examination of what actually happened, revealing some inconvenient facts that Republicans love to sweep under the carpet.
Imagine if We The People stick up for We The People and not The Political System for a change. Put away the labels, do not fall for that “conquer and divide” strategy. It is NOT because of “The Liberals”, it is NOT because of “The Conservatives”…but what IT IS because of each and every one of those 545 duly elected public servants that have been in office.
It’s been a while since I’ve felt this angry and if you knew me, you’d know I don’t often get really pissed off about things…especially matters like political issues or social stuffs, more often than not, it’s not worth the emotional toll for me. I know, that might sound like a cop out. I don’t get pissed off about politics or stupid government positions or bloody agendas, its easy to misunderstand this as a cop-out. It isn’t. It’s a matter of self-preservation.
The corporate domination of government appointments to agencies which run our regulatory body is counter-productive to the mandate these agencies have to protect the citizens, environment and the nation’s general well-being. Indeed, something is rotten in American Dream and it’s not the people who people this nation.
Greetings readers of this blog, thanks again for taking time to read this blog and I promise it will indeed be a short one…partly because this is my third blog in a row for Indivisible CA-04 and in this short article I am appealing to the writers, thinkers and those who simply wish to express their First Amendments Rights by voicing an opinion, a thought, a solution or even simply a gripe.
The American Dream cannot be built upon lies and fallacies, The American Experiment cannot be governed by blind acceptance of “alternative” facts and propaganda. And all of us, every single American citizen needs to recognize this because, at the end of the day, it is our collective responsibility to correct this behavior so we as a nation can again move forward.
As our Nation celebrates the 241st anniversary of its founding, there seems to be a bigger rift between the citizens and their government than ever before; often disguised and painted as The Reds Vs. The Blues, The Republicans Vs. The Democrats, the truth is more likely it's THEM Vs. US, “Them” is the government and US is “We The People”. No matter how the picture is painted, the unrest among American citizens is growing and it's not likely to stop anytime too soon.
I did not vote for Donald Trump. I understand that many people had many different reasons for doing so and I don’t fault them that. The election process is, after all, the cornerstone of our democracy.
