Today’s Action: Push your local newspaper and tv station to drop fossil fuels advertisements!

Swedish newspaper Dagens ETC has made the choice to go green – by turning down all advertisements from fossil fuel-based goods and services. Rejecting this potential income, the newspaper stated, “It is a matter of credibility and a conversation that needs to be had right now.”

A bold move that we applaud, and need to see more of. How can journalism truly move us forward in our examination of and fight against climate change while directly benefiting from the companies who wish to see it continue? Not unlike a politician receiving a donation, it’s a hypocrisy at the least and a dangerous conflict of interest at the worst…not to mention the effectiveness of ad placement in urging consumers to purchase goods and services made with fossil fuel.

Contact your most frequented local newspaper and television stations and urge them to follow Dagens ETC’s lead by dropping advertising from all fossil fuel-based goods and services, thereby removing their conflict of interest in covering climate change stories.

The recent flooding in Jakarta, Indonesia, has killed at least 66 and displaced at least 36,000. Worse, Jakarta, home to 10 million, is one of the first major cities scientists believe will need to be abandoned due to rising ocean levels – it will be almost completely submerged by 2050.

And in nearby Australia, catastrophic bushfires have killed an estimated 1 billion animals (and this excludes fish, frogs, bats, and insects, so the actual number is significantly higher). These fires, like those recently seen in California, are also attributed to climate change.

Addressing climate change in an impactful way will not come through one single policy, politician, or lifestyle adjustment – it’s going to take an across-the-board effort from every individual and every industry. But our news sources have widespread influence over their readers and viewers – and thus, so do their ads. Urging newspapers and tv stations to divest from fossil fuel money is one significant step down the path to saving our planet and ourselves.

Urge your local television station and newspaper to divest from all advertising from fossil fuel-based goods and services, and send them Dagens ETC’s statement of intent for inspiration.

Today’s Action: Tune in for TONIGHT’S Democratic debates!

Impeachment. War with Iran. Healthcare. Deadly bushfires in Australia and flooding in Indonesia, both attributed to climate change. Voter suppression as we head into the 2020 election. The dismantling of Roe v. Wade.

These topics and more are what we need to hear about from our Democratic candidates in tonight’s debate – the final debate before the Iowa caucus launches the 2020 primary season on February 3rd. There’s no time to waste in our thoughtful selection of the best candidate to take down Trump this November.

Tune into the Democratic candidate debates TONIGHT at 9 pm EST / 6 pm PST on CNN or CNN.com and encourage your family and friends to join you.

Tonight’s debates feature the six frontrunners: Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Tom Steyer, and Elizabeth Warren. And of these candidates, progressives Sanders and Warren are currently leading the polls in Iowa over the more moderate contenders.

This is the first all-white debate stage for the 2020 presidential election cycle. It’s a signal as any that as far as we have come, we still have further to go as a party, and we must continue to push for equal representation. While we’re disappointed to see an all-white debate, we also know that the Democrats who share the stage next week are committed to American diversity— a far cry from the Party on the other side.

On thing is clear if we want to continue our progress and avoid being set back decades in our goal of true equality, we will obviously need to elect a Democratic President in 2020, but we also need to choose wisely and make an informed decision.

Join the Democratic presidential candidate debates TONIGHT at 9 pm EST / 6 pm PST on CNN or CNN.com…and make it a watch-party with your community!

Today’s Action: #NoWarWithIran protests TONIGHT

Yesterday, Trump delivered an address to the nation indicating at least a pause in his aggressive run-up to war with Iran, and for that, we can be grateful. But when dealing with the most volatile, impulsive leaders in our nation’s history, we know better than to count on Trump’s words. Even if he means it in the moment, we can usually count on him to change his mind on a dime (literally, because we’re sure his business buddies who bank off of military contracts aren’t too pleased with yesterday’s conclusions.)

That’s why we’re not taking any chances – the #NoWarWithIran protests are moving forward TONIGHT.

Enter your zip code to find the closest #NoWarWithIran protest near you, and get your protest signs ready…tonight, we take to the streets.

Today, the House will vote to restrict Trump’s abilities to wage war in Iran without the approval of Congress…but it’s the Senate where we’ll really need this agenda pushed. Tonight’s protests need to send a clear signal to Senators across the country: we do not condone his warmongering, and we want him back under the authority of the Constitution, which states that only Congress has the ability to declare war.

Except that Trump has extensive ability to order immediate military action, thanks to the tools put in place long before he entered: authority to engage in warfare without Congress’ permission, via the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), handed to George W. Bush in 2001 and 2002. Progressives have called for the repeal for years, and we must step up this platform with even more urgency.

Congress must act immediately to reign in Trump’s powers, both engagement with Iran and the ongoing ability to wage unchecked war. And to get Congress to act, especially Trump’s GOP enablers, we must take action.

Join thousands of Americans across the country in making a clear public statement against war with Iran. Enter your zip code to join the #NoWarWithIran National Day of Action.

Tell the U.S. Senate: Consider the evidence for impeachment and convict Donald Trump!

Tell the U.S. Senate: Consider the evidence for impeachment and convict Donald Trump!

For the third time in American history, the House of Representatives has impeached a president.

Far from treating charges against Donald Trump with the seriousness they deserve, the Senate’s Republican majority is ratcheting up the spin machine to preemptively exonerate their ethically bankrupt leader, evidence and common sense be damned. And they’re mixing a bitter cocktail of misdirection and willful ignorance to help them win the day.

But the facts in the case aren’t seriously disputed. Rather, House and Senate GOP members have bounced from one flimsy defense to another, continually moving the goalposts to confuse voters, muddy the waters, and claim fleeting victories from one news cycle to the next.

Spout off enough gobbledygook, drum up false equivalencies, regurgitate debunked conspiracy theories, and perhaps enough people toss common sense aside and provide Republicans enough political cover for a bogus acquittal of Trump.

For the sake of American democracy, the rule of law, and ethical decency, we cannot let that deeply cynical plan come to fruition. We must hold our elected leaders to account. The president deserves due process and a fair trial in the Senate. Relevant witnesses should be called and questioned. Evidence laid forth. And then Trump should be removed from office for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

We know this because the evidence is both publicly available and crystal clear. To paraphrase Trump’s handpicked ambassador to the EU, of course there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine. Everyone was in the loop – including multiple senior administration officials – and understood that to be the case. Trump’s chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told the American public this sort of bribery happens all the time and to just “get over it.”

Well, we can’t. And we shouldn’t. Demand the US Senate hold a proper trial, hear from key witnesses, present the evidence, and remove President Trump from the office he is so woefully unfit to hold.

Demand McConnell recuse himself from the Senate impeachment trial after he admitted coordinating with Trump!

Demand McConnell recuse himself from the Senate impeachment trial after he admitted coordinating with Trump!

As the House moved to impeach President Trump’s for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, attention quickly turned to the Senate, where Republican Leader Mitch McConnell will oversee historic proceedings on Trump’s potential removal from office. The charges put forward are serious, the facts largely uncontested.

The flailing narratives put forth by Republicans, however, reek of desperation and obfuscation. Attempts to ignore, deflect, and defend Trump’s systemic abuse of power by the GOP thus far have been galling by any measure, but Sen. McConnell has indicated things are about to get much worse.

In a jaw-dropping interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, McConnell baldly admitted that the President stood “zero chance” of being removed from office and that Senate Republicans would work in “total coordination” with the White House on the trial’s proceedings – a stunning admission of impropriety, even by the GOP’s abominable standards.

True, impeachment requires the judgement of political figures, but the seriousness of a formal trial before the full Senate demands a sober, somber examination of the facts, not a predetermined acquittal by political cronies serving an audience of one. If an ordinary citizen were called for jury duty and notified the judge – in advance – that she would work in total coordination with the defense before hearing any evidence, she would be rightly ridiculed and dismissed. McConnell should be held to the same standard.

Demand that Mitch McConnell recuse himself from the impeachment trial of President Trump for undermining due process and his craven promise of partiality. History is watching, and democracy is at stake.

Today’s Action: Visit your Senators during recess!

Congress is home for the holidays, and the timing couldn’t be more critical for facetime with our Senators.

When the Senate returns to D.C. from their holiday, they’ll face an impeachment trial that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed will cater to Trump’s every whim. But we, via our Senators, need to give McConnell hell every step of the way and expose the sham he’s planning, because:

a) we need every Democrat completely on board,
b) there are certain moderate Republicans who may be on the fence, and need to hear from their progressive constituents to do the right thing, and
c) McConnell is facing re-election in 2020, so turning even a single Republican against him weakens his position.

Call or email your Senators to set up an in-person meeting, or demand they schedule a Town Hall, during the Congressional recess. And then, tell them anything less than a completely fair and transparent trial of Trump’s crimes will be completely unacceptable to you and the law, and ask them to support Senator Schumer’s proposal.

Trump is the first president in our country’s history to be impeached and then run for re-election. And he has done so with the keen assistance of Mitch McConnell, who has been the GOP’s biggest roadblock since well before Trump.

McConnell blocked, unconstitutionally, Obama’s replacement for Supreme Court by refusing to hold a vote. And he has gleefully blocked over 150 House bills from ever reaching the floor of the Senate, denying them the chance to face a vote.

McConnell needs to feel the pressure from every single Senator, Democrat and Republican, to allow a fair, just trial of Trump’s crimes. Because if he doesn’t, his track record already tells us what comes next.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators for an in-person meeting during recess – or ask them to schedule a Town Hall. Tell them face-to-face that the Constitution requires they hold a fair and open trial, like the process Senator Schumer has proposed.
