Trump REDUCES SAFETY at nuclear weapons production sites!

September 22, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

The article at the link below summarizes Trump’s TRULY RECKLESS actions! In the 1980s the public was concerned about inadequate safety at civilian and military nuclear facilities, so in 1988 Congress created the Defense Nuclear Facilities Safety Board. This is a small entity responsible for protecting the workers who construct our nation’s nuclear weapons and protecting local communities from radioactive disasters. Now the Trump regime is colluding with the profit-making businesses that make and store the U.S.’s nuclear bombs to REDUCE THE AUTHORITY AND REACH of that safety board. The Trump regime’s new rules eliminate the board’s authority to oversee […]

6 workshops on “Nonviolent Grassroots Organizing” Saturday mornings

September 21, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Case study: About 50 years ago when my cousin was 16 years old, she wanted to make herself a dress, so she bought some expensive fabric but did not want to spend the time or effort buying or using a pattern for her sewing project. Without a pattern, she just started cutting. Of course, she ruined the fabric and did not end up with a dress. People who want to accomplish political or societal changes often make the mistake my cousin did. They start doing things without the necessary planning or skills. I’m offering practical workshops in “Nonviolent Grassroots Organizing” […]

More reasons to reject Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court

September 16, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

More and more information is surfacing that needs to be investigated and considered.  Instead, the Republican steamroller is suppressing the truth and keeping the Senate ignorant of Kavanaugh’s troubling record.  Here are a few of many reports I’ve seen lately. Kavanaugh has lied under oath about abortion, warrantless wiretapping, and torture Republicans have been covering up Brett Kavanaugh’s record as an employee in George W. Bush’s administration and elsewhere. But even based on the small amount of records that have been released, we know that Kavanaugh lied to Congress – while under oath – in 2004 and 2006. This article […]

Sign this petition to STOP expanding family detention at the U.S. border

September 15, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Imprisoning children SERIOUSLY HURTS them!!! But the Trump regime and its Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Health and Human Services want to EXPAND THE LENGTH OF TIME children can be detained at the U.S. border. In the spring and summer of 2018, huge numbers of Americans vigorously protested Trump’s deliberately cruel “zero tolerance” policies.  But the Trump regime — in defiance of overwhelming public opposition — is planning to EXPAND family detention.  It wants to withdraw from the Flores settlement agreement – a federal consent decree that has set the standard for the detention of migrant children […]

Trump wants to stop federal legal protection for children so he can imprison them longer!

September 15, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

More than 400 children who were separated from their parents at the border in the summer of 2018 still have not been reunited with their families.The deadline to do so passed in late July 2018.  The Trump regime is VIOLATING federal law.   Why doesn’t Congress regard Trump’s kidnapping and other felonies to be impeachable offenses? Now the Trump regime is doubling down on its “zero humanity” approach to people crossing borders in search of safety and a better future.  In early September 2018 the Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services announced their intention to side-step the […]

Trump diverted $10 million from FEMA aid to increase ICE incarceration

September 15, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

In early September 2018 when Hurricane Florence was nearly ready to assault the U.S. East Coast, the Trump regime diverted $10 million from FEMA ‘response and recovery’ to spend on ICE incarceration. See the article at this link:  https://www.rawstory.com/2018/09/trump-defunded-10-million-fema-response-recovery-spend-ice-detentions-just-hurricane-season/ Instead of helping people who are suffering, Trump is taking that money away from helping people recover from the climate-related hurricane so he can use that money to add to the suffering of immigrants who are being abused by the federal agency Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Voters view CORRUPTION as the most important issue. Write letters to editors in Republican communities.

September 9, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Voters are angry! Some issues become more prominent, while others drift downward. Trump has been promoting CORRUPTION throughout his administration, and Republicans have become the party of corruption nationwide.  In order to save our nation, we must alert and mobilize voters to reject the corrupt politicians. Current research shows that CORRUPTION is a MAJOR CONCERN among voters. Now — before the Nov. 6 election — is a good time for people to raise this issue, use the Republicans’ corruption against them, and write letters to editors (especially in communities that could shift from Republican to Democratic). This article provides information: […]

New legislation — H.R. 1987 — could protect us from a president unfit to serve

Kavanaugh would make Supreme Court a Republican Party tool

September 6, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

The American people need the U.S. Supreme Court to be a neutral, impartial body of legal experts. While Democratic presidents have been nominating such experts to judicial positions on the Supreme Court, Republican presidents have been nominating blatantly partisan Republicans. Brett Kavanaugh would take this to an extreme level.  After the 2000 election Kavanaugh was one of the lawyers for George W. Bush and the Republican Party who forced Florida to stop recounting the ballots.  Al Gore would have won the recount.  Instead, the Republican majority on the U.S. Supreme Court stopped the recount and appointed George W. Bush to […]

Kavanaugh THREATENS our rights!

September 5, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

See my recent post listing some very serious dangers that Brett Kavanaugh would pose if the Senate were to confirm his nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court.  Trump nominated him precisely because Kavanaugh — who is young — would impose Trumpist cruelty and abuses upon the USA for many decades, long after Trump is gone. See my recent post about this.  Please contact your U.S. senators and DEMAND that they VIGOROUSLY OPPOSE Kavanaugh in every  nonviolent way they possibly can. Among other problems, Kavanaugh would undermine the Constitutional separation of church and state.  He would impose right-wing religious bias as […]

For DECADES after Trump is gone, his Supreme Court will inflict his politics upon us

September 4, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Imagine Donald Trump on the Supreme Court! His nominee Brett Kavanaugh reflects Trump’s politics and would inflict Trumpism upon the USA for decades: Against women’s rights Against workers’ rights Against consumers’ rights Against the environment Against sensible efforts to reduce gun violence Believes that a sitting president is above the law Please phone your two U.S. senators and urge them to PUSH VIGOROUSLY to oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination. You can call their Washington DC offices and their local offices in your state. If you live in Washington State, call: Senator Patty Murray at (202) 224-3441 in Washington DC or (206) 533-5545 […]

Why people support Trump — AND smart ways for us to organize against Trumpism

August 30, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Read the insightful article at this link: https://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/here-are-15-reasons-why-trumps-supporters-will-never-abandon-him?src=newsletter1095784 Some of these 15 reasons are things we have already known. But some of these offer fresh insights that have not been discussed very much. We could make progress organizing against Trump and Trumpism by paying attention to these and devising strategies to reduce or counter those supports. EXAMPLES: 1. How could we reach out to the public, connect with their basic values and interests, reinforce good values and the broad public interest, educate them about some of the basic facts, and motivate people to pay attention and get engaged with politics […]

Trump’s EPA rollback of fuel efficiency standards WASTES OUR MONEY!!!

August 20, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Trump and his EPA are rolling back America’s Clean Car Standards.  The clean car standards are a HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL policy that have improved clean air and public health. Rolling back Clean Car Standards serves no practical purpose whatsoever!  Rolling back fuel efficiency will DELIBERATELY FORCE US TO WASTE $457 BILLION between now and 2050 because vehicles will be less efficient.  (See www.climatehawksvote.com for information and a link through which you can e-mail Congress.)  This proves that the Trump regime is extremely corrupt and is subservient to Big Oil. Also, Trump’s EPA plans to revoke California’s authority to use stricter safeguards, […]

Senate must publicly expose Trump’s nominees & turn public opinion against Trumpism.

August 9, 2018 GlenAnderson 0

Trump keeps nominating horribly corrupt, incompetent and dangerous right-wing nominees for powerful positions in the federal government.  Democratic senators simply vote “no” but fail to take stronger actions, so these Democratic senators trap themselves in a simple defensive role.  When they do that, Trump is free to keep throwing horribly corrupt, incompetent and dangerous right-wing nominees at us, one after another. Democratic senators must STAND UP for humane values, honesty, and the broad public interest.  They must PUBLICLY EXPOSE Trump’s nominees as horribly corrupt, incompetent and dangerous right-wing extremists.  They must REACH OUT TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC and TURN PUBLIC […]
