  1. It looks as if the DeVos confirmation vote could happen as early as Monday.  If you have a Republican, please call your senator! We are ONE vote from keeping DeVos away from being Sec of Education:, please call/fax to oppose.  Contact your senators here:  http://act.commoncause.org/site/PageServer?pagename=sunlight_advocacy_list_page   or by free online fax here:  https://faxzero.com/fax_senate.php
  2. The Senate Committee on Homeland Security is taking calls about Bannon’s appointment to the NSC. You can call: 202-224-4751 please spread the word by copying and pasting. You just leave a message saying, “I oppose Steve Bannon to National Security Council”. You can add more, but really they’re just tallying opinions.
  3. From one of our own:  Paul Ryan and Mike Pence both spoke out against the #muslimban before it became a real thing. Now they’ve changed their story. (And deleted their tweets!) This weekend we turned their hypocritical tweets into a ton of postcards to flood their mailboxes. People were asking for a printable template so here you go!  You can print these 4×6 postcards on cardstock or cut them out and glue to notecards. Contact info is included. Highly recommend using a red marker to add commentary. Remind these cowards that it’s not too late to do the right thing. Let me know if you have any trouble downloading and FEEL FREE TO SHARE! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B-fZaGpeMf4jNm00SHl0YUZNdUk?usp=sharing
  4. Just a reminder that this is a good source to use to keep up with how senators are voting on cabinet nominations:  https://cabinetvotes.org/
  5. If you don’t have Twitter, get it! You’ll need it for the resistance. If you do, then mosey on over to “Tweet Sheet Tuesdays,” a group where we all simultaneously post prepared tweets on Tuesdays at noon Eastern. We posted a tweet about the EPA yesterday, and next Tuesday we will be tweeting to Senate Democrats encouraging them to grow a spine and start resisting the Trump agenda. https://www.facebook.com/events/1824466434493534/
  6. Call the Senate Finance Committee at (202) 224-4515 and let them know that you oppose Chairman Hatch and the Republican members of the committee changing the rules to approve nominees without any Democrats present.
  7. Time to huddle up! Check out the next action item for the Women’s March 10 Actions for the First 100 Days campaign:  https://www.womensmarch.com/100/action2

  9. Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the Democratic Coalition, has been investigating Trumps Russian ties.  Find his report here: https://www.scribd.com/document/330989098/Dworkin-Report-Trump-Russian-Ties-Unabridged-11-13-2016  If you are on Twitter, he is certainly someone to follow:  @funder
  10. Email the Senate Committee on Homeland Security through this online form https://www.hsgac.senate.gov/contact, and say something like “I am writing to express my concern and strong objection to the appointment of Bannon to the NSC – at the same time that people with actual expertise (chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the director of national intelligence) were shifted to a smaller role. This action makes America less safe.”
  11. Rep Stephanie Murphy of Florida introduced H.R. 804 yesterday, “Protect the National Security Committee From Political Influence Act”.  If passed, this bill aimed at Bannon would insure that  “no person whose “primary or predominant responsibility is political in nature” could be designated as a member of the Security Council or be allowed to regularly attend its meetings.”   http://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2017/02/01/stephanie-murphy-files-bill-that-would-remove-stephen-bannon-from-national-security-council  Contact your representatives in support of this legislation: http://act.commoncause.org/site/PageServer?pagename=sunlight_advocacy_list_page or by online fax here:  https://faxzero.com/fax_congress.php
  12. A national strike is being planned for February 17.  “On February 17, 2017 we will be staging a National General Strike. The idea is 24-hour occupation of public space in protest of the Trump administration’s refusal to honor the Constitution of the United States of America.”  For more information, click here: http://f17strike.com/
  13. Kudos to everyone who called out Uber.  Their CEO is leaving Trump’s advisory council following criticism.  It’s working!  https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/02/technology/uber-ceo-travis-kalanick-trump-advisory-council.html
  14. Interesting publication you may want to read:  Nonviolent Struggle:  50 Crucial Points.  Published by the Centre for Applied NonViolent Action and Strategies (CANVAS), Belgrade 2006.  http://www.usip.org/sites/default/files/nonviolent_eng.pdf
  15. Keep up the good work, everyone!  Sen. Schatz tweeted on Thursday evening, “The last three days have been the BUSIEST IN CAPITOL SWITCHBOARD HISTORY. By almost double. This is working. Keep it up and please RT.”
  16. “Sessions’ Embrace of Racist Law One More Reason to Reject his Confirmation as Attorney Generalhttps://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/2017/01/31/sessions-embrace-racist-law-one-more-reason-reject-his-confirmation-attorney-general   Contact your senators here:  http://act.commoncause.org/site/PageServer?pagename=sunlight_advocacy_list_page    or by free online fax here:  https://faxzero.com/fax_senate.php

Action Items for Today:

Taken from Rogan’s List (http://roganslist.blogspot.com)

  1. Let’s support Sen. Durbin in his call for an independent commission on Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election:        http://action.dickdurbin.com/page/s/acq-russian-involvement
  1. Some words worth reading regarding the past few days, from Heather Richardson, History Professor at Boston College:https://www.facebook.com/heather.richardson.986/posts/654265404770041
  1. Request that DOJ Acting Director Dana Boente investigate Donald J Trump and Stephen Bannon for:
  1. a) For the appointment of Stephen Bannon to the National Security Council, an inappropriate and politically motivated appointment, not made in the interests of our country, but made to sabotage and destroy the safe and secure functioning of the United States government.
  2. b) For treason, pursuant to 18 USC 115, § 2381, for giving aid and comfort and adhering to enemies of the United States, to wit, Russians, Leninists, and anarchists.
  3. c) For misprision of treason, pursuant to 18 USC 115, § 2382, for concealing the above treason.

Contact the United States Department of Justice (Phone: 202-353-1555) orhttps://www.justice.gov/…/w…/your-message-department-justice).  Contact ALL your legislators as well:  http://act.commoncause.org/site/PageServer?pagename=sunlight_advocacy_list_page

  1. Circumventing protocol seems to be the new modus operandi of this administration.  That it can get insiders to be co-opted into working with them is equally dangerous.  http://www.politico.com/story/2017/01/trump-immigration-congress-order-234392  Contact your legislators to register your disgust:  http://act.commoncause.org/site/PageServer?pagename=sunlight_advocacy_list_page
  1. From one of our own:  CTA: Share wherever applicable.  This post is for anyone in groups that have “indivisible” in the group name (especially if the group is closed rather than secret).  Be advised… there is a group targeting indivisible groups to infiltrate them. I believe the group is called Michigan Indivisible Against Trump (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1912308129014696/) and this is one of the admins (https://www.facebook.com/david.a.dudenhoefer) who lists himself as Chairman at Michigan’s 13th District Republican Committee.  It appears to be a Facebook group run by Republicans who are attempting to infiltrate indivisible groups. It is a closed group rather than secret. If you are in any closed progressive groups (especially with the word indivisible in the group name), please be extra careful when adding new members. In general, keep your eyes peeled. They can’t do a whole lot to thwart activity, but they can become nuisances pretty quickly.
  1. An amazing compilation of actions kept meticulously by Suzan Eraslan. This is helpful for keeping track of facts as well as calling up resources in conversations. Please remember to credit her name when using it. She puts a lot of work into it daily!  http://www.suzaneraslan.net/the-list

  1. Two HELP Committee Republicans, Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), made clear that they have not yet decided how they will vote on the floor, suggesting that DeVos’s confirmation is not yet assured.

  1. Sally Q. Yates was fired for doing her job as Acting Attorney General after she declined to defend Trump’s travel ban . Please submit her for the 2017 JFK Profile in Courage award. Anyone can submit and takes 1 minute. https://profileincourageaward.org/home/submit-your-nomination/

  1. Please sign this White House petition to “Fire Steve Bannon”.  Steve Bannon poses a threat to our democracy. He has said that he wants to send the status quo crashing down. He appears to be the person calling the shots at the White House and no one elected him. He is not qualified to be on the National Security Council. He is a very dangerous man. https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/fire-steve-bannon-3
  1. Let’s contact our senators about this highly unusual situation regarding Bannon and the National Security Council  ask  them to formally request that the Senate force the White House to comply with 50 U.S. Code § 3021 – National Security Council – “Section (a) (6) – the Secretaries and Under Secretaries of other executive departments and of the military departments, when appointed by the President by and with the ADVICE AND CONSENT OF THE SENATE, to serve at his pleasure.” http://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2017-01-31/steve-bannon-on-national-security-council-may-require-senate-confirmation  There are many grave concerns about this individual having any voice whatsoever, or even information in regards, to National Security Council information.

  1. From Weekly Actions to Resist Trump:  Donald Trump has announced his nominee for the stolen Supreme Court seat: Judge Neil Gorsuch, exactly the kind of pick we feared when Trump won. He’s a turn-back-the-clock extremist who is dangerous for women, workers and the planet. And he might give billionaires a new best friend on the Supreme Court. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/31/us/politics/neil-gorsuch-supreme-court-nominee.html We’re telling our senators that if they don’t oppose this unacceptable nominee, we will hold them accountable at the ballot box.  To contact your senators on this go to this website, and scroll down until you see the “This Week” issue, click, then follow the directions:  http://www.weekly-resistance.online/

2016 Democratic Party Platform

2016 DEMOCRATIC PARTY PLATFORM
Preamble
In 2016, Democrats meet in Philadelphia with the same basic belief that animated the
Continental Congress when they gathered here 240 years ago: Out of many, we are one.
Under President Obama’s leadership, and thanks to the hard work and determination of
the
American people, we have come a long way from the Great Recession and the Republican
policies that triggered it. American businesses have now added 14.8 million jobs since private-
sector job growth turned positive in early 2010. Twenty million people
have gained health
insurance coverage. The American auto industry just had its best year ever. And we are getting
more of our energy from the sun and wind, and importing less oil from overseas.
But too many Americans have been left out and left behind. They are working longer hours with
less security. Wages have barely budged and the racial wealth gap remains wide, while the cost
of everything from childcare to a college education has continued to rise. And for too many
families, the dream of homeownership is out of reach. As working people struggle, the top one
percent accrues more wealth and more power. Republicans in Congress have chosen gridlock
and dysfunction over trying to find solutions to the real challenges we face. It’s no wonder that
so many feel like the system is rigged against them.
Democrats believe that cooperation is better than conflict, unity is better than division,
empowerment is better than resentment, and bridges are better than walls.
It’s a simple but powerful idea: we are stronger together.
Democrats believe we are stronger when we have an economy that works for everyone—an
economy that grows incomes for working people, creates good-paying jobs, and puts a middle-
class life within reach for more Americans. Democrats believe we can spur more sustainable
economic growth, which will create good-paying jobs and raise wages. And we can have more
economic fairness, so the rewards are shared broadly, not just with those at the top. We need an
economy that prioritizes long-term investment over short-term profit-seeking, rewards the
common interest over self-interest, and promotes innovation and entrepreneurship.
We believe that today’s extreme level of income and wealth
inequality—where the majority of
the economic gains go to the top one percent and the richest 20 people in our country own more
wealth than the bottom 150 million—makes our economy weaker, our communities poorer, and
our politics poisonous.
And we know that our nation’s long struggle with race is far from over. More than half a century
after Rosa Parks sat and Dr. King marched and John Lewis bled, more than half a century after
César Chávez, Dolores Huerta, and Larry Itliong organized, race still plays a significant role in
determining who gets ahead in America and who gets left behind. We must face that reality and
we must fix it.
We believe a good education is a basic right of all Americans, no matter what zip code they live
in. We will end the school-to-prison pipeline and build a cradle-to-college pipeline instead,
where every child can live up to his or her God-given potential.
We believe in helping Americans balance work and family without fear of punishment or
penalty. We believe in at last guaranteeing equal pay for women. And as the party that created
Social Security, we believe in protecting every American’s right to retire with dignity.
We firmly believe that the greed, recklessness, and illegal behavior on Wall Street must be
brought to an end. Wall Street must never again be allowed to threaten families and businesses
on Main Street.
Democrats believe we are stronger when we protect citizens’ right to vote,
while stopping
corporations’ outsized influence in elections. We will fight to end
the broken campaign finance
system, overturn the disastrous
Citizens United decision, restore the full power of the Voting
Rights Act, and return control of our elections to the American people.
Democrats believe that climate change poses a real and urgent threat to our economy, our
national security, and our children’s health and futures, and that Americans deserve the jobs and
security that come from becoming the clean energy superpower of the 21st century.
Democrats believe we are stronger and safer
when America brings
the world together
and leads
with principle and purpose. We believe we should strengthen our alliances, not weaken them.
We believe in the power of development and diplomacy. We believe our military should be the
best-trained, best-equipped fighting force in the world, and that we must do everything we can to
honor and support our veterans. And we know that only the United States can mobilize common
action on a truly global scale, to take on the challenges that transcend borders, from international
terrorism to climate change to health pandemics.
Above all, Democrats are the party of inclusion. We know that diversity is not our problem—it is
our promise. As Democrats, we respect differences of perspective and belief, and pledge to work
together to move this country forward, even when we disagree. With this platform, we do not
merely seek common ground—we strive to reach higher ground.
We are proud of our heritage as a nation of immigrants. We know that today’s immigrants are
tomorrow’s
teachers, doctors, lawyers, government leaders, soldiers, entrepreneurs, activists,
PTA members, and pillars of our communities.
We believe in protecting civil liberties and guaranteeing civil rights and voting rights, women’s
rights and workers’ rights, LGBT rights, and rights for people with disabilities. We believe
America is still, as Robert Kennedy said, “a great country, an unselfish country, and a
compassionate country.”
