Fabrication Flurry and more — #NebDems News

We should all thank the “Deep State” and “Fake News” media, who were working overtime this week to gin up lies about our Exalted Leader and his administration.

As the POTUS has repeatedly laid out in great detail, those two scurrilous groups have produced a mountain of phony evidence against the Trump administration.

Let’s look at a few of the top fabrications of the week, shall we?

Where do they get this stuff?

On a related, gleeful, note, if you use the sliding tracker on the bottom of this Morning Consult link, you will see Trump started with a Plus 23 approval in Nebraska and now he is at Minus 4.

Nebraska is the ONLY state in the Central Plains (which also includes the Dakotas, Kansas and Oklahoma) that is at negative approval for Trump.

Our Block Captains, candidates and elected officials have worked every day to get our message out and make this happen!

Join grassroots voters and members of the Nebraska Democratic Party on Saturday as we protest the appearance of U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham at a Nebraska GOP fundraising event in Omaha.

While the event begins at 5 p.m., the NDP will gather at 4:30 p.m. outside the venue, Champions Run, 13800 Eagle Run Dr, Omaha, NE 68164.

The GOP event was going to be open the press, but is now closed to the media.

The Omaha Star did a great cover piece on Sen. Nina Turner’s recent visit to Omaha for the NDP Black Caucus Fundraiser.

People are tired and have become apathetic with political candidates who continuously fail to deliver on campaign promises that directly address the unique issues of the Black community and marginalized citizens,” Turner said. “Another part of the issue is that we are in a generation that is several generations removed from the Civil Rights struggle in the trenches. So, many of today’s voters did not experience the overt racist tactics, the marches, lunch counters, and Supreme Court decisions, it is not in the forefront of their psyche and they have become detached in some ways from the original Civil Rights struggle.”

NDP Chair Jane Kleeb was quoted in a New York Magazine article, “How Can Democrats Win Back Rural America?”

“I think one of the biggest problems that we are facing, and this may sound so simple to say, is that none of our national party leaders live in a rural community,” she said. “When you’re looking at a candidate in a rural community and you’re not from a rural community, you don’t see the path to victory.”

We leave you this week not with the usual political cartoon, but rather a song: a rendition of “New York, New York” — with a special Trump twist — aired on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
