Scout & Molly’s Boutique launches campaign to support women fighting COVID-19

 

View this post on Instagram

 

Passover and Easter are right around the corner. Even though most of us are hunkered down at home, it is a time of celebration, reflection and sharing. We’d like to ask our customers to partner with us to bring some joy to women on the front line of the Covid-19 battle. Here is how it works: 1. Purchase a dress (no limit) online at scoutandmollys.com/reston for yourself (free shipping) 2. Select a second dress of equal or less value that you would like us to donate to the doctor, nurse, police officer or fire fighter of your choice. 3. After your purchase is complete, you will be contacted by email to get the name and address of the person you would like us to send the donated dress to. #heroes #healthcareworkers #covid_19 #helpingothers #positivevibes #somegoodnews

For just one week, the Ballston Quarter and Reston locations of franchise Scout & Molly’s Boutique are offering a campaign to support local women on the front lines against the coronavirus.

As this month is typically a time of celebration with family and friends, Jane and Betsy Abraham, the mother-daughter duo that owns both local spaces, wanted to do something special for those who will most likely be working long hours, fighting the global pandemic, instead of bonding over Passover Seder or Easter brunch.

From now until Saturday, April 11, with every purchase of a dress online from the boutique, the Abrahams will donate a dress to a health care provider—specifically a nurse, doctor, police officer or fire fighter—of your choice. Once you choose the dress you’d like to be sent right to your door, you’ll have the option to select a second dress of equal or less value for someone else.

While that special someone may not be able to show off her new dress until the summer, the gift will surely brighten her day. For more information on the week-long campaign, click here.

Democrats Raised Trump $5 Million in Just 24 Hours Thanks to Impeachment Threat

While it’s likely that the Democrat’s impeachment efforts won’t amount to much besides trouble for Joe Biden, the one thing is doing is filling President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign coffers faster scotch glass in a tidal wave.

According to Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, in the 24 hours since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that Democrats would go forward with impeachment proceedings, the GOP has raised $5 million dollars from donors in all 50 states. What’s more, Parscale says that these are only small-dollar donations, not large scale.

Trump and the GOP were pretty much ready to fundraise off the impeachment efforts immediately, and within the first day alone they had already accumulated $1 million. It would appear, however, that donation train was just picking up steam.

Next thing you know, the Trump campaign is rolling around in cash.

This shouldn’t be surprising, given a few factors. Not only are Trump’s approval numbers climbing, polls have also shown that the majority of Americans do not support impeachment at 57 percent.

So far, the only 2020 candidate who seemingly gets that this is more damaging than helpful is Tulsi Gabbard, who told The Hill that it’s not up to Democrat lawmakers as to whether or not Trump should leave office, it’s up to the people.

Add this to the myriad of bad signs for Democrats, not just in terms of their impeachment efforts but also in terms of their success in 2020. They are continuously ignoring the signs and making their campaigns centered around hatred for Trump instead of the American people.

This, in turn, reveals that their faith in the party’s success in 2020 is massively low and that getting Trump out through other means is their only way to power.

Biden advisor: His latest flip-flop on the Hyde Amendment isn’t really a flip-flop

Westlake Legal Group ss Biden advisor: His latest flip-flop on the Hyde Amendment isn’t really a flip-flop The Blog taxpayer symone sanders hyde funds biden amendment Abortion

He’s the same man today as he’s always been, Symone Sanders insists. A man who has personal beliefs about abortion but who can’t justify “locking women out” of coverage based on their zip code.

Well, says CNN’s Jim Sciutto, he seemed pretty okay with locking them out for the past 43 years.

So, you see, there does appear to be something of a shift here.

Sanders is doing her best to play a bad hand, essentially arguing that Biden retains deep misgivings about taxpayer-funded abortion but has been persuaded that the interest of lower-income women in being able to afford an abortion if they need one takes precedence. Among the people who helped persuade Biden of that, according to the Atlantic, was Sanders herself. Oh, and … Alyssa Milano?

This was a tense two days in Biden’s D.C. headquarters. The candidate was caught off guard after an NBC News story published Wednesday morning attempted to nail down where he stands on abortion policy—specifically Hyde. Symone Sanders, one of Biden’s senior advisers, confronted him, she confirmed to me Thursday night, telling Biden that he was missing how his position disproportionately affected poorer women and women of color without easy access to abortion. Alyssa Milano, the actress who’s become a major online presence on issues of women’s rights as well as a friend of the Biden team, spoke by phone Wednesday to Biden campaign manager Greg Schultz, telling him the candidate needed to change. More calls came in, more tough conversations…

Biden’s aides say they don’t want this to be seen as a political move, but as a thoughtful evolution squeezed into a frantic Wednesday and Thursday. The official Biden campaign line is that changing his position proves he’s acting on principle. “Vice President Biden’s honesty and candor are big reasons why his candidacy is resonating all across the country. Voters respond to his authenticity, and want a president with values that are nothing like the current occupant of the White House,” said Biden campaign press secretary T.J. Ducklo in a prepared statement.

“A thoughtful evolution squeezed into a few days” is the best Orwellian euphemism I’ve ever heard for a cowardly reversal born of rank political expedience. Milano’s weird cameo is icing on the cake. It’s like finding out that George H.W. Bush was consulting with Tony Danza in the run-up to the first Gulf War.

Maybe we can get Trump to reverse on those Mexico tariffs if Danny Pintauro puts in a good word.

Among many other reasons why it was foolish for Biden to reverse himself, notes Ramesh Ponnuru, is how it weakens a potential attack on Trump over abortion next year:

First, it puts Biden on the unpopular side of the issue. Advocates of taxpayer funding can point to polls saying that most people support abortion — but that’s true only when the polls have been worded not to mention taxpayer funding. A 2016 poll that clarified it was asking about Medicaid paying for abortions found that 58 percent of the public opposed it.

Second, it means that the Democratic nominee will find it more difficult to portray Republicans as far right on abortion.

Republican opponents are on the wrong side of public opinion on several questions about the issue. Most people say they would like to see Roe v. Wade survive, for example. If Biden had stuck with his opposition to taxpayer funding and won the nomination, he might have been able to draw a contrast between his own moderation and the Republicans’ extremism. But the Democrats have now drawn more attention than ever before to a question where they’re the ones who want a big change in abortion policy that most people oppose.

The most one can say for Uncle Joe here is that he’s a captive of a party that’s become fanatic about this issue. He supported the Hyde Amendment as long as he could do so while remaining electorally viable, through nearly four decades in the Senate and nearly a full decade as VP. In 2019, though, the Democratic Party view of abortion is “no limits,” full stop. And they’re invested enough in it that the so-called most electable candidate in the field concluded that he’d no longer be electable if he didn’t pander.

Exit question: Under the Symone Sanders standard, when would a politician ever be guilty of a flip-flop? If a reversal as quick and cynical as Biden’s can be spun as a matter of considered persuasion and evolution over time, is even the reptilian Kirsten Gillibrand guilty of flip-flopping?
