act.moveon.orgJoin a WaveIn 2017 we resisted. In 2018, we win ... if we organize. We can transform our government and end GOP control of the House. We can give ourselves a shot at winning Medicare for All, ending the separation of families, and unrigging the system so that all people—white, Black, brown, and everyone—can thrive. But only if we organize! That's why MoveOn members and allies are coming together to talk with voters, to listen, and to have the conversations that mean the difference between winning or losing a close election. If we can win 24 seats, we can end GOP control of the House. At MoveOn Wave events, you'll join other volunteers to make a difference at a voter contact shift at a local campaign office of a candidate for U.S. House that will help end GOP control of Congress.

alternet.orgWhite House Advisers Are Reportedly Fearful More Allegations About Kavanaugh Will EmergeTrump response to the controversy has been surprisingly muted, compared to his previous reactions to similar issues. The White House has been struggling to keep up with the pace of scandal surrounding President Donald Trump, and the latest allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, Trump's pick for the Supreme Court, have just added more fuel to the fire.According to a new report from Vanity Fair reporter Gabriel Sherman, some of Trump's advisers are fearful more damning claims about Kavanaugh may emerge.Sherman wrote:
sfgate.com'God's Harvard': Embedded in Patrick Henry CollegePatrick Henry College, or PHC, which opened its doors in the fall of 2000, was founded on the principle of enlisting the purest of born-again Christians in a war to 'transform America' by training them to occupy the 'highest offices in the land. Decades ago, evangelical leaders encouraged homeschooling to shield Christian children from the corrupting influences of American public schools and popular culture. PHC, named for a founding father who supported state-sponsored religion, serves as a bridge from the insularity of high school at the kitchen table with Mom to the temptation-filled world of a public servant. For a year and a half beginning in 2005, journalist Hanna Rosin, who has covered religion and politics for the Washington Post, embedded herself at Patrick Henry College to understand the school's mission and the character of its administration, faculty and students. At the heart of this book, though, are portraits of PHC students, from the "ultraconservatives" who follow the rigid Student Handbook to the letter, to the overachievers shooting (without irony) for the White House, to members of the "den of sin ... [a] group of boys [who] had worked the roommate selection process to commandeer one wing of a dorm," into which they smuggled cigarettes and beer and where they hung a "Pulp Fiction" poster. When Farahn Morgan, a dancer from West Virginia, is falsely accused of violating campus policy by wearing an outfit that reveals her bra strap, she responds with mockery: "People, everyone wears a bra!" The incident also shows, to some extent, the role of young women on campus.2
history.house.govThe Temporary Appointment of Representative Lindsay Warren as Majority Leader | US House of Representatives: History, Art & ArchivesOn this date, newly elected Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn of Texas named Lindsay Warren of North Carolina temporary House Majority Leader. In the days following the death of Speaker William Bankhead of Alabama, Democrats expected a heated contest to fill the Majority Leader’s position left vacant by Rayburn’s ascension to the Speakership. The party had yet to decide whether it would caucus immediately to select a new leader or if it would wait until the start of the 77th Congress (1941–1943). Rayburn selected Warren to fill the temporary vacancy; Warren, already scheduled to retire from the House to accept a White House appointment, proved to be an ideal interim appointee. The Democratic Caucus met nearly a week later on September 25 and elected John McCormack of Massachusetts Majority Leader over Representative Clifton A. Woodrum of Virginia, 141 to 67. McCormack briefly stated he considered it "a trust to be exercised in the best interests of the Democratic Party and the country.” McCormack served as Majority Leader for nearly two decades, except for two Congresses when party control of the House switched: 80th Congress (1947–1949) and 83rd Congress (1953–1955). In the 87th Congress (1961–1963), following the death of Speaker Rayburn, McCormack became the 45th Speaker of the House.
