Do this NOW:

No, you don’t have your calendar mixed up: we’re sending our usual Thursday newsletter early this week because this action can’t wait.

The Senate may vote before the end of this week on whether witnesses will be allowed in the impeachment trial. And if that vote fails, the Senate could vote to acquit right then. That means that you, and everyone you know, have to call your Senators NOW and demand the Senate hold a fair and open impeachment trial with relevant witnesses and documents. Operators are standing by; we wish we could offer BOGO on this deal, but we have something you can’t afford to lose — Democracy!

Our article has ways you can call, and get others to call, and what to say, and more. Because ​right matters. And truth matters. And truth requires witnesses. Don’t wait  CALL NOW!

We Could Not Make This Up

This week’s must-watch administration entertainment — a bold new mashup of Fahrenheit 451 Meets The Godfather. Because censorship is always topical, the State Department banned NPR from traveling to Europe with Mike Pompeo after reporter Michele Kelemen asked a question that made Pompeo mad. Now Donny Scissorshands-in-Chief is agreeing we should deep six NPR because it’s a “big-government, Democrat Party propaganda operation.” But of course always keep your eye on Don Don (President Corleone) when he says things like ”Get rid of her… Get her out tomorrow. I don’t care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out.” Oops. Looks like we just quoted NPR, there. Been nice knowing you all.
