All issues pale in comparison to the climate. With a healthy stable climate we will have hundreds of thousands of years to figure out all our other problems. Without a healthy stable climate, the entire civilization of humanity is doomed. Trump has ordered the Energy Department Climate office to no longer use the words “climate change” and pressured a bunch more public agencies to do the same. His solution to climate change, put his fingers in his ears, then put his head up his ass.
Bernie sanders says everything I want to hear in this interview, he is dropping truth bombs so hard that the earth shakes.
THIS IS MADNESS! If Trump went on tv and said “I am going to kill 2/3rds of your children next week” There would be an obvious uproar, and the entire country would kick him out of office so fast his head would spin. Well when he says climate change is a hoax, and that he is going to do nothing about it, just remember what he is really saying is “I am going to kill by neglect millions perhaps billions of people in the future.”
The science of global warming is real, and its as serious as death. WE MUST STOP HIM. Call your senator, call your rep, call your governor. DEMAND action on climate. Demand they push back on Trumps agenda, DEMAND a future for you and your children.
But if you don’t care about the future of humanity, there is still plenty of shit about Russia going on. It is pretty clear at this point that Trump is in bed with Russia, and he is doing so for reasons of money. Can we just impeach his dumb ass already?
Because A: Trump is too stupid to do the job on his own, and B: Nepotism is fun. Ivanka Trump is going to be a federal employee now.
This is Orwellian: House votes on “HONEST Act” today. This bill actually makes it harder for EPA to use peer-reviewed studies #DefendScience

Trump is going to destroy the EPA by a death by a thousand cuts. Keep a list of how your rep is voting, make sure to hold them accountable, they need to hear from you.
Why Did Congress Overturn Internet Privacy Rules? Follow The Money. Time to get money out of politics.
Upcoming Action Against Trump:
Lets get these people elected!
Arturo in California district 34, help here.
‘Cards Against Humanity’ Creator Just Pledged To Buy and Publish Congress’s Browser History Lets see how these assholes like being spied upon. I am sure there is some super secret carve out in the law that prohibits us from know what kind of porn Ted Cruze is jacking too, but I like this idea. Perhaps if we get enough leaders private info they will understand why you can’t just sell it off to the highest bidder.
Berkeley calls for Trump impeachment! More cities, more states, more more more!
We are coming for your red state seats….Watch out Ted Cruz.
FDR faced opposition in the party over the New Deal, including from his own VP John Nance Garner, who he decided to drop from the ticket before running for a third term in favor of more liberal Henry Wallace.
Upon witnessing Dems at the convention try to block Henry Wallace’s nomination as VP, he drafted this letter turning down the nomination. It was never sent.

Members of the Convention:
In the century in which we live, the Democratic Party has received the support of the electorate only when the party, with absolute clarity, has been the champion of progressive and liberal policies and principles of government.
The party has failed consistently when through political trading and chicanery it has fallen into the control of those interests, personal and financial, which think in terms of dollars instead of in terms of human values.
The Republican Party has made its nominations this year at the dictation of those who, we all know, always place money ahead of human progress.
The Democratic Convention, as appears clear from the events of today, is divided on this fundamental issue. Until the Democratic Party through this convention makes overwhelmingly clear its stand in favor of social progress and liberalism, and shakes off all the shackles of control fastened upon it by the forces of conservatism, reaction, and appeasement, it will not continue its march of victory.
It is without question that certain political influences pledged to reaction in domestic affairs and to appeasement in foreign affairs have been busily engaged behind the scenes in the promotion of discord since this Convention convened.
Under these circumstances, I cannot, in all honor, and will not, merely for political expediency, go along with the cheap bargaining and political maneuvering which have brought about party dissension in this convention.
It is best not to straddle ideals.
In these days of danger when democracy must be more than vigilant, there can be no connivance with the kind of politics which has internally weakened nations abroad before the enemy has struck from without.
It is best for America to have the fight out here and now.
I wish to give the Democratic Party the opportunity to make its historic decision clearly and without equivocation. The party must go wholly one way or wholly the other. It cannot face in both directions at the same time.
By declining the honor of the nomination for the presidency, I can restore that opportunity to the convention. I so do.
FDR knew what was up….maybe we should send copies of this to every democrat in government.

Don’t just defend Obama’s legacy against Trump: fight for radical climate action. Now is the moment to admit that Obama’s Clean Power Plan was not bold enough. If we are going to fight Trump, let’s go big!

Does your rep support this? Give them a call and make sure they do!
Tools of change:
Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it?
Calling your government representative:
You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.
Tell them in no uncertain terms that you want them to fight to stop Trump from doing these things. Tell them you will be watching them closely on how they vote, and will hold them accountable during the next election if they cave to Trump. You can also call other states congress people and threaten to donate to their opponent if they don’t do what you want.
Phone Bank for Progressive Candidates:
Call the White House:
Call the “White House”:
Use this website to call one of Trump’s many properties he has not put into a blind trust yet, and let them know how you feel (be polite, they are workers just like us, but be firm).
Do a little Slacktivism:
Go to a town hall and talk to your congress person in person:
Monitor your congressperson:
Keep track of how your senator is voting on cabinet picks here, so you can call them up and give them hell if they vote for any of these worthless fuckers.
Also be sure to keep track if you live in a district with an upcoming flip-able seat (flip to the left that is)
