NEWS:

Trump Is the Founders' Worst Nightmare. Once in the Oval Office, a demagogue can easily stay there. The very behaviors that necessitate impeachment supply the means for the demagogue to escape it. President Trump has made full use of the demagogic playbook. He has refused all cooperation with the House. He lies repeatedly about the facts, holds public rallies to spread these falsehoods and attacks the credibility, motives and even patriotism of witnesses. His mode of "argument" is purely assaultive. This is the crux of the Trump defense, and not an argument built on facts in support of a constitutional theory of the case. More here

Senate finds Russia targeted election systems in all 50 states, but legislation is stonewalled. Robert Mueller warned that Russian interference is still happening "as we sit here." McConnell blocks bill to beef up election security, saying it's unnecessary. Article here

Donny Deutsch: Trump has Been Laundering Money for 20, 30 Years. Deutsch drew a line between Trump's relationship with Putin and his foreign policy decisions. "Let's not forget it, this is all about failed casinos," he said. "He is owned by Putin because he's been laundering money, Russian money for the last 20, 30 years. He's owned by them. We all will be absolutely fascinated when we finally figure out what Vladimir Putin has on Donald Trump and why Donald Trump has surrendered the Middle East, helped ISIS, helped Iran, helped Russia, helped Turkey, helped all of our enemies and betrayed all of our allies".

The United States Is Starting to Look Like Ukraine. Ukraine has consistent themes that should sound familiar to American ears. The first is the criminalization of political differences. A second theme is the use of political office as a shield against criminal prosecution and as a vehicle for personal and familial enrichment.The third theme is where conspiracy theories abound, off-stage figures wield outsized influence, and channels of formal authority are disconnected from the real centers of power. The fourth is covert Russian interference, usually facilitated by local actors. Full article here.

For the third time in as many years, the White House has proposed a federal budget that would shutter the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting - which supports PBS and NPR - and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The cuts total $897 million of the $4.7 trillion 2020 spending plan. More here.

Warren's M4A financing plan. Elizabeth Warren over the last few weeks has faced questions over how she imagines financing Medicare for All - and who, in the end, would be better or worse off. On Friday, she answered those questions by sketching out how much she envisions a new government-run health care system costing and, then, how the government would pay for it.

I will write about tRUMP's disgusting speech to a group named Israeli- American Council. He resorted to two classic antisemitic tropes. First, that Jews are evil, guided only by money. Second, that only good Jews support Israel. More from Richard at wbldems.blogspot.

The House GOP Super PAC 'American Action Network' is running a $2 million ad campaign against impeachment and have targeted specific Democratic districts. Ours is one of them. They are working to inundate Haley's office with calls from Trump supporters. We need to let her know we support voting YES on impeachment. Every single call to her office is tallied and that's why it's so important that she hears from you! Call her today (202-225-8171). Plymouth Democratic Club

All of these crucial medical treatments - vision, hearing and dental - are provided under the Medicare for All Act of 2019. And the legislation eliminates every penny in premiums, co-pays and deductibles. If Medicare for All were the law of the land, healthcare costs would no longer consume over 40% of the average Social Security benefit. Tanya

The new narrative is Bernie is TOO far left. Now it's even being touted by President Obama, himself! I miss President Obama. But I'm no fool. The establishment will run any line to save itself. Tammy
