What is there to left to say?

Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

What is there to left to say? How does Trump go to Europe, make enemies of our friends and our NATO partners, (is rude to the Queen!!), thumb his nose at our own Justice Department and intelligence agencies, and cozy up with our long-standing enemy and defend him??? Even Fox News couldn't make sense of it. In my opinion, President Trump should have been arrested when he got off Air Force One instead of returned to the White House.

Where is the Republican's moral code? Congressional Republicans appear shaken, but do nothing. HOWEVER, our chances in November have improved. The worse he does, the better we look. But it is so jarring and getting through each day is sometimes more than any of us bargained for. I hear this refrain all the time: "I thought it couldn't get worse, then it does." Thank goodness we have each other. (Also I listen to "The Daily", the NYT podcast. That helps.)

We certainly look forward to hearing from Harley Rouda on Tuesday evening about his campaign. After Harley speaks, we will again have a discussion about Trump's fiasco of a trip, the Supreme Court nomination and the migrant children. We look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Details follow....

Hot Hot Hot!

Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

This past weekend was one of the hottest of recent memory. I grew up in San Francisco and this weather literally wilts me. Between that and the political climate, I have not been a happy person. On Friday, I met my good friend and political mentor for lunch, where we shared political woes, collaborated about the upcoming elections and discussed how to get through the next months without tearing our hair out. Her best advice…we are activists, we are doing what we can. We must keep working on TURNING THE HOUSE BLUE. Keep doing it and don’t focus on everything you can’t fix. I’m passing this along to you because I found her words to be wise, helpful and energizing. We need to sign up with a campaign, keep giving money, enlist our friends...do whatever makes us happy and involved as we make our way to the ballot box in November.

On Saturday, I saw RBG. In addition to being wonderful, educational, enlightening, and empowering, it also gave me hope. Look at what an amazing effect that tiny woman has had on our lives. She points out that we have been through bad times but as a country we have survived. We’ve got to stick with it. Also a great message. If you haven’t seen the movie, see it, feel it and keep Notorious RBG's message of hope with you, as well -- as have all the young people who are so empowered by her! We will get through this, even with the awful Trump.

Speaking of great messages, I have BIG one for you..

DemOC PAC has made donations to three of our

Hooray for them and hooray for us! Thank you to all who have joined the PAC and who have given us money. You made this possible! More donations to come!

If you aren't already a member, please join. Members voted on this decision upon the recommendation of the Political Research Committee. All members have input on how we give our money. We will be making more donations between now and November. We MUST TURN THE HOUSE BLUE to stop this maniacal takeover by Trump and the Republicans. Please consider joining and giving today.
