  • CLOSED: Until radical Republicans like Tim Griffin and Tom Cotton relent, the Clinton Library will remain closed.

From the Arkansas Democratic Party:

On Tuesday, October 8th at 2:00p.m. State Representative Warwick Sabin will join seniors and veterans to hold a news conference to #DemandAVote from Congressman Tim Griffin on a clean budget to end the government shutdown. The news conference will take place outside the Clinton Presidential Library, which is currently closed to many visitors due to the government shutdown.

In Washington, Congressman Griffin is continuing to oppose any reasonable solution to end the government shutdown that he engineered, repeatedly blocking votes on a clean budget bill.

Tim Griffin is a man of his word. He — and extremist Rep. Rick Crawford (not Tom Cotton, as I originally wrote, but who holds with the shutdown forces completely) — signed a letter that said he would shut down government if a radical minority didn't get its way on blocking new health care coverage for millions of Americans. That's just what he and Cotton and Crawford and Womack and Boozman have done.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
