Another mass shooting happened yesterday, this time at Umpqua Community College in Oregon. And just like after every mass shooting, right-wing politicians who have no intention of doing anything to make people safer in the face of gun violence were quick to offer their prayers and condolences to the families and friends of the victims.
When staunch National Rifle Association supporters tweet that their “thoughts and prayers” are with the victims’ families, it doesn’t mean much because when they vote on gun laws, they are with the NRA.
Join me below the fold to see what pro-NRA politicians are saying in response to yesterday’s shooting, and to put pressure on them to do more. Read More

On Tuesday, together with representatives from Daily Kos, MoveOn and Democracy for America, I delivered more than 1.2 million petition signatures, including more than 770,000 from CREDO activists, to Democratic Leader Harry Reid and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Leader Reid and Sen. Warren are fierce champions of women’s rights and strong defenders of Planned Parenthood. They made clear how grateful they are for your activism, and I made clear how grateful we are for their leadership. I also shared our commitment to doing everything we can to make sure that every Democrat in the Senate joins them in holding the line against any deals or compromises that result in cuts to Planned Parenthood, even if holding the line means risking a government shutdown.
Join me below the fold for photos from the petition delivery, some thoughts on where things stand, and what you can do to stop Republicans from defunding Planned Parenthood.

CREDO Action released the statement below in response to Senator Mikulski becoming the 34th Senator to announce her support for the Iran nuclear deal, ensuring that the deal will not be blocked by Congress:
“This is a huge deal. President Obama confronted a similar challenge over Iran to the one that George W. Bush faced over Iraq – but won peace through diplomacy rather than dragging us into another disastrous war of choice in the Middle East,” said CREDO Action Political Director Becky Bond. “A Democratic Party that wrongly voted in support of the invasion of Iraq over a decade ago, despite massive protests, this time listened to the grassroots who wrote, called, and rallied in huge numbers and stood with their president to stop a war with Iran.”

President Obama arrived in Alaska yesterday to talk about climate change, in the very place where he just approved Shell to drill in the Arctic. This despite the fact that scientists have made it clear: 100% of Arctic oil must stay in the ground if we want to prevent the worst impacts of climate change.
CREDO launched a campaign at www.MissionNotAccomplished.com to make sure the public and the press were aware that even as the president is making powerful speeches about climate change he was making the problem worse approving fossil fuel extraction on a massive scale. We are calling his trip to Alaska his “Mission Accomplished” moment. (You can read our reasoning in this post on Medium.) Read More
