Friday 11/9 Call to Action

Hello! Did you see all the fantastic things that happened last Tuesday? All the hard work over that past two years paid off. We elected some fantastic leaders who will spend their time in office making Minnesota a better place for everyone. TPOM’s original intention was to take a break for a few months to catch our breath and get ready for the next two years. It has become apparent that our current administration is not going to let us do that. So going forward, we will will continue to post two to three days a week to keep you up to date on important issues. Come January, we will be full steam ahead in our fight for good government.
Last night, across the country citizens came together to protest Trump’s latest attempt to stop Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Despite the cold, snowy weather, hundreds of Minnesotan’s gathered to show their support for the rule of law. The protest at Representative Erik Paulsen’s office was showcased on the Rachel Maddow show. Watch that here:…/sensing-trump-threat-widespread-pro…
The protest on the steps of the state capitol got coverage in the Start Tribune.…/…/…

Thank you to those of you who were able to get out and brave the cold to show support for protecting Mueller.
Beloved Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg fell at work yesterday and fractured three ribs. Thankfully, it appears she will recover. Read more about that here:…/ruth-bader-ginsburg-fractu…/index.html
If you have any leftover postcards, why not send Justice Ginsberg your get well soon wishes.
Here is her address:
Justice Ruth Ginsburg
The Supreme Court of the United States
One First Street N.E.,
Washington, D.C. 20543
Another mass shooting has occurred merely days after the last one. In fact, there have been 307 mass shootings since the beginning of the year. That number is unbelievable and despicable. The latest tragedy occurred at a country music bar in California and many of the patrons there that night had also been at the Las Vegas shooting one year ago.…/shooting-california-thousand-oaks…
When our new leaders start working in January, we must insist that they find solutions to this terrible problem. Let them know today of your expectations so they can prepare ahead of time and hit the ground running in the New Year.
As I am writing this post, there are news reports of an active shooter in a North Carolina school.…/active-shooter-reporte…/275-612930965
Some good news to finish out this post. House member Melissa Hortman will be Minnesota’s next Speaker of the House. I think we can be confident that she will be great in this new leadership roll. Congratulations Speaker Hortman!…/4526801-minnesota-democrats-pick-ne…
