(editor’s note: I’ve made some sentences bold. – R.T.)

Congressman Jim McGovern joined yesterday Representatives Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ), and Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) in introducing a censure resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives against President Donald Trump for his comments blaming “both sides” for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and excusing the behavior of participants in the ‘Unite the Right’ rally.

The censure resolution condemns the President for failing to immediately and specifically name and condemn the white supremacist, Ku Klux Klan, and neo-Nazi groups responsible for actions of domestic terrorism in Charlottesville over the weekend, and for doubling-down on his comments by attempting to create a moral equivalency between white supremacists and those counter-protesting the ‘Unite the Right’ rally.

The resolution, which was cosponsored by 79 Members of Congress, offers an official censure by Congress of President Trump for his remarks, and calls for the President to fire any and all advisors who have urged him to cater to white supremacist movements in the United States.

“President Trump’s remarks in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville are outrageous. His refusal to completely and totally denounce white supremacist groups and all who enable their bigotry is unacceptable. America’s leaders must send a clear message to President Trump that these comments are not just wrong, but they insult the moral convictions and ideals our country was built on,” Congressman Jim McGovern said. “This is a moment history will remember. Americans need to know their leaders have the courage to stand with them. We must not only condemn the President’s remarks, we must censure the President for the unacceptable way he has represented our country in this critical moment.”

In addition to Representatives McGovern, Nadler, Watson Coleman, and Jayapal, the following Members have signed on as cosponsors: Joe Crowley (D-NY), Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), Grace Napolitano (D-CA), Nydia Velazquez (D-NY), Bill Foster (D-IL), Diana DeGette (D-CO), Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), Scott Peters (D-CA), Donald Payne, Jr. (D-NJ), Marcia Fudge (D-OH), Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), Paul Tonko (D-NY), Al Lawson (D-FL), Rick Larsen (D-WA), Frank Pallone (D-NJ), Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Greg Meeks (D-NY), Steve Cohen (D-TN), Tim Walz (D-MN), Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Stephen Lynch (D-MA), Julia Brownley (D-CA), Eliot Engel (D-NY), David Loebsack (D-IA), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Debbie Dingell (D-MI), Barbara Lee (D-CA), Anthony Brown (D-MD), David Cicilline (D-RI), Jared Huffman (D-CA), Hank Johnson (D-GA), Jose Serrano (D-NY), Jamie Raskin (D-MD), Bennie Thompson (D-MS), Al Green (D-TX), Mark Takano (D-CA), Grace Meng (D-NY), Mark Pocan (D-WI), Maxine Waters (D-CA), Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Brenda Lawrence (D-MI), Don Beyer (D-VA), Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH), Ted Lieu (D-CA), Karen Bass (D-CA), Adam Smith (D-WA), William Lacy Clay (D-MO), Brad Schneider (D-IL), Gerald E.

H. RES. __

Censuring and condemning President Donald Trump.

115th CONGRESS
1st Session
August 18, 2017

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Mr. NADLER, Ms. WATSON COLEMAN, and Ms. JAYAPAL submitted the following resolution, which was referred to the Committee on _______;

RESOLUTION

Censuring and condemning President Donald Trump.

Whereas on August 11, 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia, a gathering of white supremacists, including neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan (KKK) members, and other white nationalist groups, marched through the streets with torches as part of a coordinated ‘Unite the Right’ rally spewing racism, anti-Semitism, bigotry and hatred;

Whereas on August 12, 2017 in Charlottesville, Virginia, a car driven by James Alex Fields, Jr. rammed into a crowd of counter-protestors, killing Heather Heyer and injuring 20 others;

Whereas President Donald Trump’s immediate public comments rebuked “many sides” for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and failed to specifically condemn the ‘Unite the Right’ rally or cite the white supremacist, neo-Nazi gathering as responsible for actions of domestic terrorism;

Whereas on August 15, 2017 President Donald Trump held a press conference at Trump Tower where he re-asserted that “both sides” were to blame for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, and attempted to create a moral equivalency between white supremacist, KKK, neo-Nazi groups and those counter-protesting the ‘Unite the Right’ rally;

Whereas President Donald Trump has surrounded himself with, and cultivated the influence of, senior advisors and spokespeople who have long histories of promoting white nationalist, racist and anti-Semitic principles and policies within the country;

Whereas President Donald Trump has provided encouragement and little to no denunciation of white supremacist groups and individuals who promote their bigoted, nationalist ideology and policies;

Whereas President Donald Trump has failed to provide adequate condemnation and assure the American people of his resolve to opposing domestic terrorism: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives—

(1) does hereby censure and condemn President Donald Trump for his inadequate response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12, 2017, his failure to immediately and specifically name and condemn the white supremacist groups responsible for actions of domestic terrorism, for re-asserting that “both sides” were to blame and excusing the violent behavior of participants in the ‘Unite the Right’ rally, and for employing people with ties to white supremacist movements in the White House, such as Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka; and

(2) does hereby urge President Donald Trump to fire any and all White House advisors who have urged him to cater to the white supremacist movement in the United States.

Here is a fast Funday Sunday treat for you and your friends/family!

Basic bread pudding recipe:

IMG_5624-768x576

IMG_5625-768x576

… for every cup of cubed bread you need one egg, beaten.

IMG_5626-768x576

The joy of this is you can make small batches!

Each cup of bread needs 1/2 cup of milk to soften it. For example, if you have 2 cups of bread (any kind), place in bowl and add 1 cup of milk. Four cups of bread calls for 2 cups of milk, etc …

IMG_5627-768x576

For each cup, use 1 egg.

When you have your final tally:

Whip the eggs, add 1/2 tsp vanilla and 2 tbsp of sugar per cup of mix.

For example, 4 cups of bread mix calls for 8 tbsp sugar and 2 tsp of vanilla to be added.

Whip it all up; mix with the eggs.

When it is all mixed, portion into cup cake tins …

IMG_5628-768x576

… and bake at 375 F for 15 to 20 minutes!

1 1/2 tsp. salt

2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 cup water

1 clove garlic, minced

1 cup finely diced onion

1/2 cup finely chopped raw cashews

1/2 cup spinach

Mix the flour and 1 teaspoonful of salt in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix together 1 tablespoonful of olive oil and the water.

Add to the flour and mix until fully combined (add water as needed).

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes.

Heat the remaining olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat and add the garlic and onion. Cook until the onions are translucent.

Add the cashews, spinach and remaining salt and cook until the spinach is fully wilted and no water remains, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

Place the dough on a floured cutting board and roll out to form a flat, even rectangular shape.

Press firmly with a fork around the edges of the ravioli.

Boil for about 8 minutes and serve with your favorite pasta sauce!

Impeach President Donald Rump!

Text + pics by Rosalie Tirella

Rump roast for dinner every night, America, courtesy of our President Donald Trump – the biggest horse’s ass to ever lumber through the oval office! And now we learn something truly damning and prison-worthy: Donald Trump Jr. meets with the enemy – a Russian lawyer connected to the Kremlin – during the presidential campaign to get dirt on his dad’s opponent, Hillary Clinton. Why? Because they wanna win – the Trump baboons AND Vladimir Putin. Putin, prez of Russia, wants his brutal world view IN – spread all over the planet like a sloppy shit sandwich. He wants the American/Western European/Democracy-embracing world view OUT. Putin wants more raw power, a larger Russia, autocratic rule … fortifications – not more free places! And he will kill anyone – journalists, dissenting Russian oligarchs, etc – who stands in his way. He has made bumbling Trump a pawn in his lethal games.

If this were CLINTON, she’d be in shackles – or at least impeached. This is what needs to happen to Trump.

WAKE UP, REPUBLICANS!

WAKE UP, AMERICA!

Sanctions, strong words, hitting where it hurts most – this is what America must do to Russia to keep Putin from compromising more American elections. To quote from a Woody Gutherie song (Woody’s birthday is coming up – July 14❤): “This land is your land …
