Slithering Down the Drain and more — #NebDems News

As the Trump Presidency slithers back down the sewer drain from whence it came, the POTUS went further off the rails this week, which included an astonishing meltdown over the House impeachment proceedings while making an appearance with Sauli Niinistö, the president of Finland — to which the editorial board of Esquire opined.

“He ranted and raved in the Oval Office. He yelled and menaced reporters at a press conference. At seemingly no point did he complete a sentence — fragments only. It was another in a long line of national embarrassments for our fine country, but it was also a bona fide event for photography. The watching press pool captured our fearless leader in all his wild gesticulations and frenzied mouth movements, and even caught a couple glimpses of poor Mr. Niinistö revealing how he really felt.”


Back in Nebraska, Democratic state Sen. Kate Bolz announced Thursday that she would challenge Rep. Jeff Fortenberry for the First District House seat.

She said growing up on a farm in Palmyra helped teach her the value of integrity and doing right by her neighbor, and said her Christian faith is what drew her to public office. Bolz said a growing contingent of nonpartisan voters in the district could propel her to victory.

“People are looking for independent leadership, not partisan politics,” she said.

She joins Democrat Barbara Ramsey in challenging Fortenberry.


Not surprisingly, the Morrison Exon Fundraiser on Oct. 26 in Omaha featuring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi quickly sold out.

We have two sponsorship packages left. You can البريد الإلكتروني للتفاصيل.

If we can open more seats, we will post that information as soon as possible here.

The ME dinner is part of our Big Blue Weekend, which also includes a Black Caucus Fundraiser, our اجتماع اللجنة المركزية للدولة و تدريب المقعد الأزرق مع لجنة التدريب الوطنية الديمقراطية for candidates, campaign staff and local party leaders/grassroots activists.

At the event, we present awards to hard working volunteers and hear from state and national speakers.

Venerable Nebraska Democrat Wayne Ziebarth, 98, of Wilcox, died Sept. 27.

Celebration of life services were this morning in Axtell with the Rev. Gale Dorn officiating. Burial was at Pleasant Hill Cemetery with military honors by Wilcox American Legion Post 377 in conjunction with the U.S. Marine Corps Funeral Honors Team.

كرسي الحزب الوطني الديمقراطي جين كليب and her husband سكوت attended to pass on NDP love to Wayne’s son Jimmy, who is involved the local Democratic Party.

We’d also like to thank Sen. Bob Kerrey for his remarks honoring Wayne, which were read by Wayne’s great nephew.

There will be a special showing showing of the film “Sober Indian, Dangerous Indian” on Sunday in Kearney.
