Who funds Donald Trump?

PBS. RICK STEVES —FACISM IN EUROPE WWII. How did it happen? Charismatic leader... “only I can do this”. Simple answers to complex problems. Fear of outsiders. Free press suppressed. Extreme nationalism. Absolute control police/armed forces. The big lie.

Here it is. This site is owned/run by a leading GOP digital operative. He runs systems on servers physically located in Russia, and advertised it. Mitch McConnell is a client. Ben Carson is a client. Gingrich is a client. And many more. Tell the world.

What are Republicans afraid of?

Donald Trump is enabling white supremacy—and Republicans are enabling him. And when Congress and the American people have tried to fight the gun violence epidemic, @SenateMajLdr has put the NRA first. If we want action, we need to take back the Senate and end the filibuster.

Amy McGrath blasts Mitch McConnell for tweeting out an image of a mock graveyard with a tombstone bearing McGrath's name just hours after a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas. McGrath is the most prominent Democrat vying to take on McConnell in 2020.

Ohio lawmaker Candice Keller blames gay marriage, 'drag queen advocates' for Dayton shooting

Two gun safety bills have been sitting on Mitch McConnell’s desk since @HouseDemocrats passed them in February. If Trump means what he said this morning, he should tell the Senate to pass them, too. We know what will happen if they do nothing.

Now why would the Russian embassy be defending Tulsi Gabbard?

"Jesus Christ, of course he's racist!" - Beto O'Rourke, thinking up the bumper sticker every Democrat should be using.

Republican Senator Mitch McConnell tweeted out a picture with the name of Amy McGrath on a headstone just hours after the El Paso shooting. This is not only a direct threat against a decorated veteran, but is inciting violence against opponents of McConnell. He should resign.

Two days of deeply misleading banner headlines from the paper of record. We are not a “bewildered nation” and we don’t have a president who urges “unity vs. racism.” We know what’s happening, and we know how his activities exacerbate it.
