State of Dishonesty.

It’s another day in Trump’s America—and another day to stand up for what’s right. Get the facts to fight back.

President Trump’s 2016 campaign was one of sweeping false promises. Tonight, during his State of the Union address in Speaker Pelosi’s House chamber, Trump will make his case for re-election.

We’re holding him accountable, and we need your help.

Candidate Trump promised to tax the rich, ensure clean water and air, protect health care, find a humane solution for Dreamers, and so much more. Every false promise is a betrayal to Americans.

Trump’s nominee to replace Brett Kavanaugh on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals is almost as alarming as her predecessor.

Neomi Rao has a disturbing record on issues across the board: sexual assault and women’s rights, disability rights, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, presidential powers, environmental and health protections, and more.

Rao is widely known for her active support of the cruel practice of “dwarf-tossing,” and for her college writings suggesting that it’s a woman’s responsibility to prevent potential date rape. Rao once wrote, “And if she drinks to the point where she can no longer choose, well, getting to that point was part of her choice.”

She made a flimsy attempt to assuage fears during her confirmation hearing today before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Bottom line? Rao’s stances and previous actions are disqualifying for a seat on the second highest court in the land.
