Chaos in Charlottesville

Chaos in Charlottesville – When Barack Obama was elected, it was said that the USA had become color-blind. Donald Trump’s rhetoric helped create and inflame the divisiveness we are witnessing in Charlottesville.

We must reintensify our efforts for unity.

Everyone in this country deserves our respect. Everyone has the right to “…life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…”

—Howard Katz, RCDP Chair

Progressive News from Democratic Headquarters of the Desert


Donald Trump, the ‘would-be president’, shocked the sensibilities of the nation yesterday with his tweeted policy directive banning transgendered persons from military service. Using his craven and cynical ‘governing-by-tweet’ habit, he now has attacked a group of Americans who are proudly serving their country while being true to who they are. Thousands more Americans have now been thrown under the bus by this moronic man in his frantic effort to distract from the investigation that portends an end to his deplorable, misbegotten presidency.

Eric Bauman, Chair of the California Democratic Party has made a statement in this regard on behalf of all California Democrats.

Here is Eric’s statement.
