Obama should have provided javelins (in my view), but can we stop with this nonsense that Obama only provided “blankets” to the Ukrainian military ? FACT SHEET: U.S. Support for Ukraine:
"body armor, helmets, vehicles, night and thermal vision devices, heavy engineering equipment, advanced radios, patrol boats, rations, tents, counter-mortar radars, uniforms, and other related items."
Federalist No. 47: "accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny."
Summary of Today's #ImpeachmentHearings
Democrats: We have a confession, a smoking gun and multiple witnesses to testify that the suspect fired a weapon and tried to kill someone.
Republicans: Yeah, but it didn't hit the guy. And who's the snitch who called 911?
Key George Kent quote: "It was unexpected, & most unfortunate, to watch some Americans...launch attacks on dedicated public servants advancing U.S. interests in Ukraine...Those attacks undermined U.S. & Ukrainian national interests & damaged our critical bilateral relationship."
Lessons learned from @SecretService report on 41 school attacks 2008-2017
76% of the guns used were taken from HOME
48% were NOT secured
This Secret service report makes three things very clear, we need a national safe storage law such as #EthansLaw and we should raise the age to 21. We also must pass #JaimesLaw so that these kids cannot acquire the ammunition.
No words!!! This is hanging in a school bathroom. Why? Because America has chosen to traumatize our children over dealing with the reality of gun violence. My daughter died in school. I am thankful she was never traumatized by this when she was alive. Pass gun safety.
Senators worry impeachment will consume legislative agenda
Dear #GOP Senators: The House has passed hundreds of bipartisan bills to you, including:
-Bills to reduce generic drug prices
-Universal background checks
-Violence Against Women's Act Reauthorization
You've refused to act. Don't use impeachment as an excuse.
@GeoffRBennett Not civil rights
Not gun control
Not religious rights
Not human rights, etc.
But for a hearing they KNOW is being held by the rules of the House and not entitled to be in (but representend by house gop cmmttee members).
