Make them pay

Yesterday, we watched in outrage as Republicans sold out women and Democracy and voted to seat Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. A lot of us felt helpless this week watching these events play out, and realizing what they will mean for the future of this country.

But we aren’t helpless. The fight isn’t over. There will be no justice in America until we vote out Donald Trump and end Republican control of Congress. Every senator who voted for Kavanaugh should lose their job, and we are going to make that happen.

Election day is one month away. Stand Up San Francisco is leading canvasses in Tracy every Saturday from now until then, to take a House seat away from Republican Jeff Denham. Join us in our minivan, which Rachel calls “The Beast of the Resistance”, for a fun and vitally important day out.

TONIGHT: Emergency vigil to stop Kavanaugh

Can you spend one hour tonight to help make sure Brett Kavanaugh never sits on the Supreme Court? While sending a powerful message that you believe women and will never support anyone who assaults us?

The Senate could vote to to confirm Kavanaugh as soon as Friday, without a thorough FBI investigation. That’s why tonight there are emergency vigils and protests across the country. Together, we will send a message to Congress—especially on-the-fence senators—and to the media that Kavanaugh must never, ever be confirmed.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO TODAY


Attend tonight’s vigil on the steps of City Hall, 7:30pm.

A predator and a liar

SUBJECT LINE: A predator and a liar

Hi ,

This has been an excruciating week for survivors of sexual assault, and for women in general. We remember what the Senate put Anita Hill through, and it’s infuriating to see Dr. Blasey Ford have to suffer the same misery. This week was a stark reminder that the men who are running our country see women as objects to be raped and discarded.

Our outrage has made an impact: senators agreed to move forward with an FBI investigation before the confirmation vote. But make no mistake: the White House has placed significant limits on that investigation, and it’s clear that the GOP still expects to confirm Brett Kavanaugh before midterms.

We could still see to it that Kavanaugh is impeached. But that will only happen if we take back Congress.

That’s our Senator!

Did you see Senator Harris grilling SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh last week? She went after him on abortion as well as the Mueller investigation, exposing his lies, corruption, and unwillingness to prosecute Trump for any crimes he’s committed.

In publicly opposing Kavanaugh, Senator Harris is fighting hard for Democracy. She’s fighting for us. Let’s make sure she keeps it up.


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Call Senator Harris and thank her for opposing Kavanaugh’s nomination and for holding his feet to the fire in these hearings.

Extra credit: Call Senator Feinstein and ask her why she hasn’t committed to vote against Kavanaugh.

Don’t like calls? Use Resistbot.

Get out the vote: it’s now or never

The hearings on Brett Kavanaugh have revealed exactly how unqualified he is to serve on the Supreme Court. Senator Patrick Leahy showed that Kavanaugh was intimately involved with the theft of files on Bush judicial nominees. A question from Senator Kamala Harris made it clear that he discussed the Mueller investigation with Trump’s personal law firm. We already knew that Kavanaugh is an extremist on executive privilege and against reproductive rights. He is now revealed to be as corrupt and complicit as anyone else in Trump’s circle.

We’ve already been calling Senators Harris and Feinstein to thank them for leading the battle against Kavanaugh. But there’s only so much our senators can do. We don’t have the votes. The only way we can prevent Trump from appointing dishonest, unethical judges is to take back the House and Senate. 


ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW


Phone bank next Sunday and help us elect Democrat Josh Harder in CA District 10.

Can’t make it on Sunday? Canvass with us in Tracy on the 15th (I’ll drive you there myself!), or join one of Swing Left’s get-out-the-vote actions in District 10.
