Join the fight to defeat Jim Jordan

Stand with Janet


Share

Jim Jordan and his so-called Freedom Caucus are the primary architects of our broken politics. At every turn, Jordan has chosen his ideology over the real needs of his constituents. And now, when we need united action to defend our democracy, Jim Jordan is focused on playing partisan games rather than providing real leadership.

Janet Garrett is running because Ohio’s fourth district deserves a representative who gets the job done — and her momentum just keeps building. We’ve raised more money than any Democrat since partisan gerrymandering created this district in 2011, and we’ve seen interest in Janet’s campaign skyrocket — from a mention on Rachel Maddow, to local and regional newspaper articles, to last week’s article on Vox.

We have a once-in-a-generation chance to beat Jim Jordan and flip this district blue. Will you sign your name to let Janet know you’re with her?

It’s not just national media and cable news. Our community is excited to have a real alternative to Jim Jordan — a pragmatic progressive who we can count on to get things done. It’s clear that the district is ready for change.

We know we’re facing an uphill battle. Janet is never going to have the big money on her side — that’s why she needs supporters like you. Please, stand with Janet today.

Thanks,
Team Janet

Tell Senate Democrats: Stand united against Trump. Reject Kavanaugh!

Tell Senate Democrats: Stand united against Trump’s Supreme Court pick, Kavanaugh

The President of the United States is under investigation for how he won the election (among other things). He has already pushed through a Supreme Court nomination that was stolen from his predecessor, President Obama. Another extreme right Justice could upend Americans’ rights for generations to come.

These are just a few of the reasons that Senate Democrats must stand united in rejecting President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. If Democrats all oppose Kavanaugh, it will only take one or two Republicans to stop him — and potentially delay the pick until after the 2018 elections.

But if even one Democrat supports Trump’s pick, hope for saving the Court is lost. Please add your name to the below letter, urging all Democratic Senators to stand united in opposition to Judge Kavanaugh.

Dear Senate Democrats,

We write to urge you in the strongest possible terms to oppose President Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Prior to his judicial appointment by President George W. Bush, Kavanaugh was a Republican operative, a key player in the impeachment of President Clinton and a senior official in the disastrous Bush presidency. He has spent his career opposing every value that we, as Democrats, hold dear. As a Justice, he is likely to spend decades reversing progress on women’s rights, Civil Rights, voting rights, and workers rights — all while giving more power to entrenched wealth and multi-national corporations.

Furthermore, his views on criminal investigations of a sitting president provide Trump with the chance at a literal get out of jail free card and an opportunity to further skirt the law.

We believe his nomination is unacceptable and consider any Democrat’s support for him to be an unforgivable sin. We understand that political considerations factor in to your decisions, but to be frank, this is what you were elected to do.

Please stand up against Trump’s attempt to reshape the court in his image for a generation. Stand united with your fellow Democrats and the values you claim to represent.

Oppose Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh’s to the Supreme Court.

Sincerely,

[ADD YOUR NAME]

DEMOCRATS: OPPOSE KAVANAUGH

Stop Trump's Ignorant, Economy-Killing Trade War!

Stop Trump's Ignorant, Economy-Killing Trade War!

Despite the advice of virtually all rational economistsbusinessesworker groups, and even Republicans, President Trump decided to levy tariffs on some of America’s closest allies and trading partners — including Canada and the European Union — sparking and unnecessary and potentially devastating trade war.

Within just a few short days, layoffs began in U.S. cities and businesses began moving jobs overseas. And this is only the beginning.

Trump has responded to the economic damage by doubling down on his trade war, proposing new automobile tariffs that could inflict further damage and plunge the U.S. into a full scale recession. Unless Congress stops him.

Trump’s idiotic tariffs are not only bad for American workers, they are also dangerous for global relations, forcing retaliation from formerly reliable allies. The message to the world is staggering as the President simultaneously betrays Americas allies and gushes dotingly over brutal tyrants, including Kim Jong UnVladimir Putin, and Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Trump’s trade war is as reckless as it is ignorant. Add your name to demand Congress vote to stop tariffs before any more damage is done.

END TRUMP'S TRADE WAR

End Trump's cruel zero tolerance anti-immigration policy

End Trump's cruel zero tolerance anti-immigration policy

President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have worked together since April to separate 2,500 children from their asylum-seeking parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump finally bowed to political pressure and ended his family separation policy… on paper.

The horrendous truth is that thousands of children are still being kept from their parents, families continue to be ripped apart, and families are still being thrown in cages indefinitely for the crime of fleeing unfathomable violence and oppression.

Current plans are to house up to 20,000 immigrant families on military bases in temporary shelters — officially launching our 21st-century version of the Japanese internment camps during World War II.

It was shameful then, and it’s shameful now, and we must refuse to accept it.

Trump’s plan is also likely in violation of a court settlement that protects children in federal custody. Trump, with his general contempt for our justice system, is asking the courts to dismantle their rules. The only way out of this Catch-22 is dismantling what launched it: Trump’s zero-tolerance policy.


Reject Trump’s nomination of right wing extremist Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court

Reject Trump’s nomination to the Supreme Court

Civil Rights, voting rights, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, workers rights, privacy, protections from corporate excess and police overreach — these are just a few of the pillars of progress that could be toppled if President Trump has his way in getting Brett Kavanaugh confirmed to the Supreme Court.

We have to fight back with everything we’ve got to stop it. Please add your name to send a clear message to the closely divided U.S. Senate that Brett Kavanaugh has no place on the Supreme Court. We can defeat the dangerous extremist, but only if we fight back with everything we’ve got.

With the stolen seat now occupied by Neil Gorsuch, Trump is determined to remake the Court in his hateful image. Kavanaugh gives him the opportunity he’s been looking for.

An appointee of George W. Bush, Judge Kavanaugh has a clear history of extremism, ruling that the NSA could surveil Americans, writing that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is unconstitutional, and arguing for a vast executive power that could jeopardize Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. And at just 53 years old, Kavanaugh would be able to keep pursuing Trump’s vile agenda long after Trump is gone.

The fallout from allowing Trump a 5-4 Supreme Court majority cannot be overstated, and the damage would likely continue to build for a generation. We must do everything we can to stop it.

Please add your name to demand the Senate reject Trump’s nomination of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Tell McConnell: Follow your own rule! No Supreme Court vote until after the election

Tell McConnell: Follow your own rule! No Supreme Court vote until after the election!

With 237 days until the 2016 election, President Obama had a Supreme Court seat to fill. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell decried that the people needed to have a voice in the next Justice and refused to hold a vote on Obama’s nominee.

Now, a seat has opened up with just 131 days until Election Day and, in an extraordinary act of hypocrisy, McConnell is pledging to hold a vote on Trump’s nominee as quickly as possible.

Don’t let him get away with it! Demand the people have a chance to weigh in on the Senate that will confirm the next Justice before any hearings are held.

If Trump is able to push another Supreme Court Justice through this obsequious Senate before the people have spoken, we can be certain that the court will exacerbate his agenda of trampling on voting rights, minority rights, and women’s rights while giving more power to corporations and entrenched wealth over working people.

Refuse to allow it! McConnell set a precedent, and he — at the very least — should be bound by it.

Add your name to demand the Senate wait until after the elections to confirm the next Supreme Court Justice!
