DU Has To Mobilize

Last edited Wed May 1, 2019, 10:36 PM - Edit history (1)

I Love Primaries, but DU? We've got to do more than one thing around here. I'm a citizen and political participant first, partisan second.

The United States is not in a political crisis. We're in a Constitutional Crisis.

This is not about just some partisan men of one branch of our government not honoring what partisan men of another branch of our government want. This isn't about "gaming" justice. This is about Justice itself.

Over the course of two months we've seen what's happening. The Second Branch, the Executive and its Attorney General, is moving to render The First Branch -- The People's Congress -- irrelevant. It has gutted the functionality of our government for The People while global corporate money has captured almost all three branches of government.

The president's and "his" attorney general's refusal to answer questions of the First Branch's constitutional oversight brought us -- US -- to this pass.

1.
DU must make its voice heard.


ASAP. It will take us 15 minutes. I've done it. It can be done. It's what we do.

2.
Call your Congressional Representative, AND Speaker Pelosi and Representative Nadler.


House phone number = (352) 799-8354

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (202)225-4965
Representative Jerold Nadler(202)225-5635

Dial and enter your zip code and you will be connected.

Before calling, type out in advance your key ideas so that they don't sound emotional.
Make your points grounded in the general rights of The People to see justice done with this AG, over the gaming of Justice that this AG and president are making of the Law, the Constitution.

Speak confidently, seriously.

Identify yourself, what state you're from, and that you're a longtime voter.

Say whatever you think is important. I'd strongly urge that you ad that, in the absence of Barr's resignation, The House MUST relentlessly pursue its constitutional duty to send a message to all those in The Executive branch, that those who refuse to honor justice under the law WILL be in legal jeopardy.

However we put it, this Congress must be obeyed in its constitutional duty to represent the will of The People.

3.
If we do nothing,
stay in outraged thrall of events we've never before witnessed, we will collectively suffer the First Branch's congressional power collapse before the Second Branch. It has already happened in the Senate.

We will witness the transformation of a Constitutional Democratic Republic into a corporate-military junta dictatorship. Under Trump. No longer a nation of laws, but of men.

We citizens must speak and act by any means necessary. Democratic law must prevail over any dictatorship of men.

We're all in this together. This is not a rehearsal. This is it.

I'm calling first thing tomorrow morning.

1. I spent $50 on long distance to my senators, congresswoman, Pelosi, Nadler, etc

two weeks ago and have been posting the numbers you just posted. Infact I posted them twice on DU today as well as the Tom Steyer number to get connected to a congressmember when you enter your zip code...
(571)200-3505. RESIST!

You can also leave a message.

5. Maybe we need a key phone list for DU member convenience? Cuz this isn't going away. Even

senators' numbers might move oath breakers to become oath keepers.

6. The number for the Senate is (202) 225-3121

That will get you to any senator. Congress members are different. I made over 400 calls between 2017-2018 and it was easy.

You can call ANY member even if you are not a constituent. I get local addresses from Zillow homes for sale on Google and I can do it and make a call in under 4 minutes. Any phone number you give the staffer is OK since cell phones can be based all over the country these days. It works...I have mostly called GOP reps since mine are all blue Dems. A relative worked the phones for my rep in DC and she verified that they do give your input to the rep you called.

10. Hey, BP! Could you please post Tom Steyer's number again? Just can't find your post with it.

I'd very much appreciate it.
