“Congress shall make no law. . . abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the PEOPLE peaceably to assemble. . .” The Bill of Rights pertains to protecting the INDIVIDUAL from the power of government, it says absolutely nothing about corporations, etc. https://t.co/HdRD8wvpA8

.@SlaughterAM argument that more diversity in our foreign policy apparatus will lead to a greater sensitivity to human rights and non Western perspectives is spot on. Her book Renewal is a brilliant celebration of American pluralism while touting a reflective patriotism. https://t.co/sUYH87OvNM

We’re facing an all-out assault on our democracy. We need to pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to protect the sacred right to vote.
I urge Congress to send them to my desk immediately. https://t.co/0J5pY7fkJG

Democrats in the Senate need to lock themselves in a room with Manchin. No one should be allowed to leave until Manchin says yes to filibuster reform in order to pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act.
Federal voting protections need to be enacted ASAP. https://t.co/lD0ztpPKbs

It should be the announced position of Merrick Garland’s DOJ that claims asserted by bounty hunters under the Texas statute will be regarded as unlawful attempts to deprive persons of their constitutional rights and will be subject to civil and criminal sanctions as appropriate.

I was glad to stand with @GavinNewsom today. Californians: Vote NO on the recall & send your ballot back by 9/14 to keep him as governor so women’s rights are respected, children are protected, our planet is defended, & all Californians have a fighting chance to build a future. pic.twitter.com/uqffHYFPaY
