Obstruction, obstruction, obstruction

The Republicans can yell obstruction all they want, but last night Democrats stood up for democracy and the preservation of our government, by blocking the vote on Jeff Sessions, and Steve Mnuchin). Let's break down the potential power regime: while last week's executive orders carry out Trump's hard line nationalist campaign promises, it's Bannon and Sessions who are the architects of this worldview. Sessions fingerprints are all over the muslim ban and as attorney general he would defend its legal parameters. It will be Rex Tillerson, the secretary of state nominee who did not rule out a muslim registry during his hearing, who will be in charge of implementing the ban. Time to call/email/fax those Republicans in congress and senate who have spoken out against the ban and ask them to be the check we need on this tremendous imbalance of power!

What you can do
  1. CALL/EMAIL/FAX these congresspeople and senators who have spoken out against the muslim ban (either in its entirety or partially) and tell them you support their oppositon and ask them to:
    1) Keep speaking out against the ban
    2) Oppose the nominations of Jeff Sessions and Rex Tillerson who would collude to enact the ban and other unconstitutional orders.
    3) Call for the removal of Steven Bannon from the white house.

For Call #1
Hi Rep/Sen____
Thank you for speaking out and voicing your concerns about the muslim ban. I am asking you to go a step further in protecting the rights of those who live in this country. I am deeply concerned about the unchecked power of the president if Jeff Sessions and Rex Tillerson are confirmed. There is strong evidence that both of them will carry out executive orders without the moral clarity and constitutional respect required of their jobs as Attorney General and Secretary of State. Please speak up against their confirmations. Please also speak up against Steve Bannon's appointment to the National Security Council. He is wholly unqualified to make decisions regarding the safety and protection of Americans.

For Call #2
Hi Sen___
I am deeply disappointed that you sided with Republicans on Monday night to clear the path for Rex Tillerson's confirmation. His statements regarding a muslim registry make him wholly unfit to serve as secretary of state. May I remind you that you are up for re-election next year, and votes like this will be remembered come voting day.
