Hi there, Diane --

This has been a big week.

Yikes -- load image


There's a lot to get our heads around:

What we do know -- load image


There's a lot of questions that need answers, but one thing is clear -- Republicans aren't going to investigate Trump's Russian connections unless pushed to do so:

Wow -- load image


This is a problem -- load image


So it's going to be on Democrats to keep the pressure on, and supporters like you to help us do it:

It's up to us -- load image


Whether it's showing up to town halls while your representatives are in their districts for this week's recess, making calls, or tweeting, sharing and otherwise getting the word out to your friends and neighbors -- we're counting on you, Diane.

Thanks for doing your part.

ADD YOUR NAME: No Supreme Court confirmation during Trump's campaign

Trump is back on the campaign trail.
DemocratsJoin us.
Trump held his first re-election campaign rally yesterday. Tell Senate Republicans to play by their own rules and refuse to confirm his Supreme Court nominee during the campaign.


Diane, let's take a stroll down memory lane.

Remember Merrick Garland -- President Obama's Supreme Court nominee who Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans stridently refused to confirm because of a totally fabricated notion that the Senate shouldn't confirm Supreme Court nominees during a presidential campaign?

Well, earlier this month Donald Trump picked Neil Gorsuch -- an ultra-conservative, anti-consumer, pro-business judge -- as his nominee to fill Merrick Garland's stolen Supreme Court seat. But yesterday, only 29 days into his presidency, Donald Trump held his first campaign rally for his 2020 re-election bid.

So, according to Mitch McConnell's standards, the Senate cannot and should not confirm Gorsuch to the Supreme Court because we are officially in campaign season.

Neil Gorsuch's nomination should be treated with the same respect that Republicans gave Merrick Garland -- it's only fair that Mitch McConnell play by his own rules.

Add your name: demand that no nominee be confirmed to the Supreme Court during Trump's re-election campaign:


Thanks,

Eric

A marathon, not a sprint

We still have an important job to do
Factivists
Holding Donald Trump, his administration, and the rest of the GOP accountable is one of the most important parts of our work.

Become a Factivist today to get the latest information about what they're up to, then forward these emails to your friends and family to keep them in the loop, too.



Hi there, Diane --

After some dispiriting losses this week, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer had a pep talk for all of us who have been fighting back against Donald Trump and his disastrous Cabinet picks:

"We didn't win with Betsy DeVos, because only two Republicans would cross over, but everyone now is going to watch her like a hawk when she tries to mess with public education.

We didn't win with Jeff Sessions, but he's going to be watched like a hawk when he deals with immigration and voting rights and civil rights because his record has been made so clear.

That will probably limit them in some of the bad things they can do. It certainly will encourage us to go after them in every way when they do those things."


And Diane, Factivists are going to be on the front lines holding them accountable.

Whether it's at the ballot box:

Bye -- load image


Or at a town hall:

Keep showing up -- load image


Or continuing to call your senators to vote "no" this week on one of Trump's most egregiously unqualified, anti-worker nominees, Andy Puzder:

Puzder is a problem -- load image


You're really making a difference:

Some good news -- load image


We're only three weeks into Donald Trump's presidency, and it's clear that this is going to be an endurance test for all of us looking to stop this administration from doing all the damage it's capable of. Keep recharging your batteries because our resistance is working -- but it's going to be a marathon, not a sprint:

Persist -- load image


As always, we're counting on you to keep tweeting, sharing, and otherwise getting the word out about what Donald Trump and his administration are up to. Thanks for everything you're doing -- it's working!

Speaking out and standing up

We still have an important job to do

Hi there, Diane --

This week, we saw the consequences of Donald Trump's hateful rhetoric firsthand as it has quickly transformed into actual policy:

Lives are at stake -- load image


We're not going to stop speaking out against it, and we're counting on you to help elevate the voices of those whose lives have been impacted by it:

Help us tell their stories -- load image


Your voice is so powerful, Diane. We need to continue speaking out, standing up, and letting Trump and the rest of the GOP know that we're not going anywhere. And we're so close to having a big win tomorrow if folks like you keep calling Senate Republicans tomorrow morning:

Pick up that phone -- load image


Thanks for being part of this. As always, we're counting on our best supporters like you to share, Tweet, and otherwise get the word out about what Trump and the rest of the GOP are trying to get away with.

BREAKING: Trump announces Supreme Court nominee

Meet Trump's Supreme Court nominee:
DemocratsJoin us.
Trump just nominated ultra-conservative Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Add your name: tell the Senate to reject Judge Gorsuch.


Diane --

Judge Neil Gorsuch, Donald Trump's newly-revealed Supreme Court nominee, has a legal history that shows a deep sympathy for corporate interests and an apparent disdain for workers.

Donald wants to put Judge Gorsuch in the Supreme Court seat the GOP stole from President Obama. Add your name to tell the Senate to reject his nomination.

As an attorney, Judge Gorsuch routinely represented big businesses in class action lawsuits. As a judge on the Tenth Circuit, he wrote a concurring opinion in Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius -- the case that allowed employers to deny basic health care coverage to women by ruling the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive mandate was unconstitutional. He upheld a decision that denied long-term insurance benefits to a worker who sustained a work-related injury that required spinal surgery. He even dissented from a ruling in favor of a truck driver whose employer illegally fired him for abandoning a trailer with locked brakes -- so he wouldn't freeze to death.

And as a member of the ultra-conservative "Federalist Society," Gorsuch believes in severely restricting the power that federal agencies like the EPA have to regulate businesses.

It's not hard to see why Trump loves him so much -- but from where we're sitting, Diane, Judge Gorsuch has no business on the Supreme Court bench. Add your name if you agree.


Thanks so much,

re: the most dangerous administration in history

Let's get to work.
DemocratsJoin us.
Before our midnight deadline, pitch in $10 or more to show you're part of the movement against Trump and the GOP -- and we'll send you an Official Democratic Membership Card:


Declaring war on the media, beginning to repeal Obamacare, reinstating the global gag rule that cuts funding from NGOs that even mention abortion, moving forward with the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, ordering construction of his signature border wall, ordering a ban on Muslims entering this country -- this administration is shaping up to be the most dangerous administration in history. And we're only a little over a week in, Diane.

Donald and his Republican pals in Congress are holding true to their campaign promise to undo all of the progress we achieved under President Obama, and then some. So we are going to have to make sure that we are doing everything we can to fight back as hard as possible. And the way that this administration is going, it'll take each of us being all-in.

Our end-of-month deadline is tonight at midnight. How much we raise between now and then will determine how we can fight back against this administration in its first 100 days -- it's that simple. Will you pitch in $10 now to make sure that we're able to take on Trump and the GOP every single day? We'll send you your Official Democratic Membership Card in the mail when you do.

If you've saved your payment information, your donation will go through immediately.

QUICK DONATE: $10
QUICK DONATE: $25
QUICK DONATE: $50
QUICK DONATE: $100
QUICK DONATE: $200
Or donate another amount.
Thanks for being a part of this -- we couldn't do it without you.

Seriously and literally

We still have an important job to do
Factivists

Become a Factivist today to get the latest information about what they're up to, then forward these emails to your friends and family to keep them in the loop, too.



Hi there, Diane --

Throughout the campaign, Republicans and Trump supporters tried to reassure us that he should be taken seriously, but not literally. We're now one week into his presidency, and he has followed through on nearly every outlandish, offensive, and un-American idea he peddled on the campaign trail:

This will never be normal -- load image


From his Muslim ban:

There is so much wrong with this -- load image


To an extreme crackdown on immigration:

Democrats are standing up -- load image


He's gone above and beyond even what we thought was possible, launching a war on science:

Ugh -- load image


And on totally unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud:

This is bad-- load image


From day one, the Trump administration has shown a willingness to mislead the American people when the facts are inconvenient to them:

What we're up against-- load image


That's why your job as a Factivist is more important than ever, Diane. Trump and his team are working every day to discredit everyone from the media to the National Park Service -- anyone who tries to hold them accountable. But we're not going to stop. Keep sharing, tweeting, and otherwise getting the word out about what this administration is doing and what we as Democrats can do to stop them.

Thanks for standing with us. Talk soon,
