URGENT

PoWaURGENT: Contact your Senators and urge them to block Bannon from the NSC.
 
According to section (a)(6) of federal statute 50 U.S. Code 3021, a civilian like Steve Bannon will in fact need to go through Senate confirmation and approval in order to serve on the National Security Council because he doesn’t fit into any of the five listed pre-approved categories. Please use this rule to bring Bannon before the Senate. Please grill him and expose this man who is the power behind the president, for what he really is.

Supreme Court

This is the single most important thing to contact your Senators about. The only thing stopping this power rush is the court system. But if appeals make their way up to a Supreme Court they have stacked for themselves, democracy is done.

PoWaContact your Senators and let them know it is ESSENTIAL that they prevent him from appointing any Supreme Court Justice.

http://www.afj.org/scotusnominee  Judge Gorsuch is a far-right extremist who would manipulate his politically loaded version of “originalist” methodology to overturn basic and well-established Supreme Court precedents and principles of American law and, most importantly, prevent the federal government from properly enforcing countless acts of Congress.

Consent

PoWaWrite to your Senators and ask them to WITHHOLD CONSENT, as described in the linked Washington Post article. By doing so, they can slow nominationsDemocrats can also withhold their consent from every piece of objectionable legislation McConnell tries to advance. With 48 senators in their caucus, they have the votes to block most bills. Democrats can withhold their consent from Trump until they feel confident that foreign governments are not interfering in our elections. Credible reports hold that U.S. intelligence agencies are investigating whether Trump’s campaign cooperated with the Russian government on Vladi­mir Putin’s personally directed meddling. Withholding consent from Trump’s agenda until an independent, bipartisan probe provides answers is not just reasonable; it’s responsible.

  • Let your Republican Senators know you are disappointed in them for supporting her nomination. (With the notable exceptions of Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski, of Alaska, and Susan Collins, of Maine – Thank them!)
