Through extensive social media and digital outreach, the national organization aims to increase the number of eligible citizens who register to vote and who actually show up to the polls on election day.

The launch video shows Obama and Miranda personally making voter registration calls, reminding the other co-chairs to vote in every election — “school board, state house, all of them,” Obama instructs.

“Voting is the only way to ensure that our values and priorities are represented in the halls of power,” Obama says in a statement in When We All Vote’s press release. “And it’s not enough to just vote for president every four years. We all have to vote in every single election: for mayor, governor, school board, state legislature and Congress. The leaders we elect to these offices help determine just about every aspect of our lives and our democracy. So the future of our families, our communities and our country belongs to those of us who show up, cast our votes, and make our voices heard.”

I am planning to beat this drum until my hands fall off, but it is nice to have some high powered help spreading the word of how important it is to register new voters. 

Keep in mind that typically it’s Democrats who want more people to vote, and Republicans who only want certain people to vote. 

That is because Democrats realize that the numbers are in our favor if only we can get them to show up at the polls.

    A soybean farmer in Pennsylvania was interviewed by CNBC and admitted that the US tariffs on steel and Chinese tariffs on soybeans have caused him to lose a lot of money. However, he also said that he still supports Trump and his policies.

    “If the election was today, and Hillary was on the ticket and Trump was on the ticket, I’d absolutely vote the same way,” he tells CNBC. “Without a doubt.”

    The one question these reporters NEVER ask is “Why?” Make these people explain why they would still support a politician who is hurting them and their families. Make them explain why some missing emails are more important than feeding their children or protecting the security of our elections or keeping the environment safe or supporting our long-standing international allies.

    Make them articulate WHY they would vote again for someone they admit is hurting them!

    “Clare Locke also did work for former Today show host Matt Lauer” “a Mirror Award for “Best Story on Sexual Misconduct in the Media Industry.”

    “The stories that we have been doing are about a system. The system has lawyers and a good reputation,” Carmon said in her acceptance speech. “Indeed, the system is sitting in this room. Some more than others. The system is still powerful men getting stories killed that I believe will one day see the light of day.” “There’s is a new spin on defamation practice. They are bragging about killing stories. They are not focusing on litigation but the pre-publication element to squash a story,”
    “At the same time Clare Locke was working with Thrush, one of the Times’ most recognizable journalists, they were also representing Sarah Palin in a appeal against the Times. Palin accused the newspaper of libel over a opinion piece saying the Republican’s rhetoric led to the assassination attempt on Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in 2011.” “They are very good. They know where to press and what will have an effect,” one lawyer who has tangled with the firm on multiple occasions told The Daily Beast. “They are pretty successful in managing to have a story framed to suit their clients’ interests.”

    “Marchant, whose work was profiled by The Wall Street Journal after 11 people exposed by OffshoreAlert were charged with fraud and money laundering, refused the demand.

    “When I responded, I never heard from them. It speaks for itself. I secretly say bring the lawsuit. My message to them is ‘I’m going to whip down your pants and bend you over my knee and give you a damn good spanking and it’s going to be in public.”

    “They are banking on me being a wimp or ignorant. I’m neither of those two things. I’m a trained journalist. A lot of people will cave to a slightest bit of pressure,” Marchant told The Daily Beast. “No one wants to be sued. They knew they didn’t have a legal basis. It was not the most professional letter. You can tell who is serious and who isn’t. It was nonsense in there. It was absurd. It was Mickey Mouse.””

    ” Locke told The Federalist Society she is a fan of the First Amendment.

    “It is what separates this great democratic republic from many of the other nations around the world. We have the freedom to go online to speak our minds to criticize our government and to criticize businesses and individuals and we are not going to be locked up and thrown in jail as a result of that. But this hysteria about the war on the press is incredibly overblown.””<RiiiggghhhttT

    “Yeager, who has reportedly spent more than 40 years warning about the dangers of left-wing extremism, does not believe there has been any uptick in white supremacist violence, and that the far-left, which he described as “despis[ing] Western civilization and liberal democracy,” is squarely to blame for the growing political violence in the U.S.”

    OT “Pirro went on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show Thursday night to tell her side of the story, but Goldberg said she left out a lot of important details.

    “There were a lot of people backstage, and I want to be very clear about what happened,” Goldberg said. “There’s a lot of spinning she’s doing, and I can’t do anything about that. I can tell you what went on.”

    Pirro was upset when she arrived because conservative commentator Ana Navarro was guest hosting instead of Joy Behar, according to Goldberg, and lost her cool after her segment ended on time.

    “After the segment, which ended when it was supposed to — it was not early, not late — she called everybody at the table a name I cannot repeat on TV and said it in front of the audience,”

    ““Then I said to her some few choice words I cannot repeat,” Goldberg said. “Yes, I did say it, I did say it, but I did not spit on her. I did not intimidate her. No one chased her out of here, saying get out, but she did leave here cursing at the people who booked the show. She cursed at the guys who do the security for the show.” “People who know Jeanine know exactly what I’m talking about,” “They know she likes to stir it up. I rarely get stirred up, but I got stirred up yesterday. I did apologize for getting hot. It doesn’t happen often — every 10 years, it seems.””

    fine life of the battery for being worth the worth

    recent years have seen Gionee stagger a little bit interior american native indians enhance owing to manufacturers like Xiaomi moreover Lenovo, might just have completely modified this and also mid-range current market place by way of awfully in a hostile manner recharged materials.

    at the present the actual is here that will help comeback solid as well as also Gionee A1 rrs a first weaponry rolling around in its menu. The Gionee A1 is their hottest main as well as looks to entice selfie fans having its 16MP front digital camera an inspired magnificent.

    With a hostile sale price, worthy technical specs on top of that extraordinary front camera equipment chops, has the potential to the A1 assist you to resuscitate Gionee and make it a solid impetus within a native american indian smart phone recent market? we are going to explore.

    DesignThe Gionee A1 holds a high, comforting presume in a side of things and also has a body realized mostly absent from shiny by incorporating synthetic parts thrown in in some places to scale back ask for in addition to to help the device work on web sites in a great way.

    what can been employed by natural treasures typically texting pattern new boat Gionee would make the bezels a tad small-scale. rolling around in its the latest iteration, the enormous bezels the actual A1 look a while out dated and therefore take away its insurance rate feel.

    On a confident message, The building could be very comforting and the iphone senses durable and chunky. the back group is constructed of refined metallic this also feels and looks payment. The bottom and top pieces on the rear are constructed with cosmetic, which might suitable known the mobile phone’s acceptable the price tag.

    While some people may source the smartphones thick (8.3mm) a lot aside setting up, i like how it allows the touch screen phone a fish tank like suffer around the side. In a day and age just where OEM’s are trying to make their unique hardware as lean and light as they can and therefore driving them to extremely difficult to hold in a very claws the Gionee A1 arrive shut off like a oxygen of oxygen.

    the product needs circular edges, With the quantity modification and furthermore durability tab on the very best area, sim position on the remaining perfectly as a single mono sub on the bottom. those loudspeaker is now superior but also get hugely tinny then shrill for full sum. Stereo audio system have grown to be the norm proper and therefore are sorely didn’t detect.

    unquestionably the Gionee A1 has an physical habitat uc browser mouse flanked caused by two capacitive uc browser tactics in support of multitask then in return. The fingerprint warning is stuck in to home icon and is pretty fast and effective.

    the particular bodily natural control actually are a wide letdown. the type of press button is a tad too recessed and is hard to mass media. as well as, The engagement ring all around the home control key just isn’t ended effectively so will feel spectacular coarse.

    consequently, insurance policy coverage Gionee A1 almost never acquire virtually cash payouts for their design or go brains, it’s solid additionally well-built home gym that suffers from completely supreme.

    DisplayThe Gionee A1 contains a 5.5 in,inches 1080p AMOLED feature which has terrific using bottoms and as a result appropriate ultra violet rays legibility. like every AMOLED sections, the colours are generally punchy and in addition energized often next to ‘pop’ windscreen the. if you’d prefer lots more natural since accurate colours colours bear in mind, AMOLED is not your best option.

    the actual internet hardware front, there are certainly both arrives additionally misses. as long as 4GB having to do with ram and as a consequence 64GB inside safe-keeping listed above is the average during this price, time frame wind up Mediaroundek Helio P10 product is going to be absolutely reasonable better.

    the uppermost level of illumination levels is necessary but a minimal setting up is a touch too bright in addition is an irritant before bed. although the event never will blow your company over while well as take on any kind of main, it is still one of the greatest displays with price structure and is one of the streaks of unit.

    PerformanceOn the equipment front, you will discover both results in adition to overlooks. while you are 4GB most typically associated with ram memory moreover 64GB inside storeroom higher is everyday only at that price point, and can eliminate Medithroughoutek Helio P10 chip could really just regular really.

    the goes into the A1’s favor is this,often the software program together with devices appear to optimised properly. which is a breath of air of ticket amidst a sea of android os cell phones because often times insulate even with having successful any big box home. The Gionee A1 tackle everyday jobs like scrolling along with the ui, on and then pics, globe wide web web browsing, taking social press software suffering from aplomb and doesn’t hand over plenty provocke protest.

    yet still, our fragile chip must raise their bad head off in some situations. participate in high quality xbox games say like,resembling popular counteract 5 pertaining to too long, open-ended tons of navigation bars throughout silver and the unit accomplishes reduce eventually.

    The texting energy control yet another bit questionable, With machine heating up during persistant involved use. While very easy become very warm a lot to turn miserable to hold on to, It is a bit disconcerting however,then again.

    SoftwareOn the system front, the specific A1 is run on Gionee’s individual Amigo skin tone color doing upon android os 7.0 Nougat. While the software program is decently optimised and simply extends without the crucial lags or slowdowns, it really looks distinctly strange.

    most of the A1’s graphical user interface ultimately ends up resembling a a lot of mishmash connected with operating system and iOS that really doesn’t gel extremely. often a development one of japanese mobile or portable phone creators. Oppo, Vivo and Gionee suffer it weird habit of skinning android mobile phone so that it results appearing like a much worked on iOS subject matter.

    choosing one example from the field of music, The A1’s software is like a homage rock band gambling homage up to two regarding favourite creators in the process. that too two creators faraway from entirely various makes. the results identification turmoil.

    as with iOS, Amigo OS has not got an app bathroom drawer and even unsecuredroid’s easily perhaps may be toggles reached by just rise swiping the bottom of from show the akin to stop heartle’s. you’ll find self-explanatory chinese language on to english interpretation error likewise, to have previous: answer to your problem small link on the top of adequate closet in notification colour known as “view, which brings up instance notice buildings.

    there are tons of before placed software packages fully briefed because peel from the lemon singled out, UC internet browser, you have g hold, 4 Gameloft adventure titles (suit different versions no less), Hotoday, Xender and a lot more. their laundry varies right from the helpful to utterly ineffective and they just go through very leftover debris. it also, our own icons for few of Gionee’s different software really feel tacky.

    regardless of Gionee’s Amigo 4 urinary incontinence often is optimadequatelyed and doesn’t insulate as well as slowdown, appears incomplete, Unpolished and just like a mishmash with regards to operating system and iOS.

    On the positive terior, all A1 should come with very unique main features for instance multi windows approach, quite a proficient motif motor, Beautified picture and stuff like that. as the convenience of these features might be inhibited, may a great component still.

    i am actually conflicted with the software from your Gionee A1. similarly, appears incomplete, Unpolished and such as a mishmash of all android os and iOS. also, dissimilar to the skins as in LG’s ui and / or Huawei’s emotion, might be optimised better and doesn’t insulate perhaps downturn.

    this example perplexes others significantly. if smartphones anywhere from chinese language language providers obtained items also in the vicinity of operating system, they can turn into a strength that will be reckoned with as they previously provide top notch hardware. if it’s not shares android os, they are able to at least adopt enthusiasm including Xioami, who is MIUI results in such as a finished and elegant coloration with a special personal identity of its own.

    energy lifeGionee’s tagline typically A1 could be “good Selfie, excellent battery power” and at least on the battery front, the tagline very specific. The mobile phone comes with a 4010mAh bank which simply last you with the day, observed demanding bring into play also social gaming.
