This week we are concentrating our energies on convicting the most malignant president the United States has seen for generations and disqualifying him for for future office, as well as refusing him a pension and other retirement benefits.
What we’re hearing is that, despite the great case the Democrats are putting on, 44 GOP senators, paralyzed by fear of Trump’s threats of retribution, have flushed away any good sense and true patriotism that they may have possessed at one time.
Even TV comedians are calling them cowards. (https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2021/feb/10/jimmy-kimmel-trump-second-impeachment-trial-gop-senators) so it’s not just us.
We have scripts for both Democrats and Republican senators. Yes, even though you think you know how Dianne and Alex will vote, they still need to hear from you, every day, that convicting and disqualifying this man is tops on your list of to-do’s.
Help flip the online discussion. These scared-rabbit GOP senators are watching.
Use your social media to spread some truth about Trump and help remove cover from GOP senators. Join up with Demcast (https://twitter.com/DemCastUSA) to get new media links to use on Facebook, DM, Twitter and more (https://twitter.com/DemCastUSA)!
Find people who live in the states listed below and ask them to call their own senators and either use our script or go off-road on their own.
Someone put together this list of GOP senators that might be coaxed into relocating their spinal column. (They can dial direct or use the main switchboard # here: (202) 224-3121)
(Yes, technically, you can call any senator you want but phone calls to legislators who are not your own will not be recorded by the beleaguered staff manning the phones. However, this is a great list for comparing to friends and family in your contacts list.)
Important points for talking to GOP senators:
– Call them out as sniveling cowards. Spell out “sniveling” if necessary.- Tell them that Trump remains a clear and present danger to our country and more people will die if he commands his followers to riot again.- Tell them no one believes Sen. Rand Paul’s pathetic excuse of an argument and they should be ashamed to even pretend to. (“Dammit, Jim! I’m an ophthalmologist, not a constitutional scholar!”)- Tell them that you expect them to stand up against Trump and for those killed and injured on Jan. 6th, their oath of office, and the future of our democracy.- Rinse and repeat. Every damn day until this trial is over.

Say “NO” to lifetime retirement perks for our former grifter-in-chief.
Minimum script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Rep./Sen. [___] to support legislation to specifically exempt ex-President Trump from all benefits of the Former Presidents Act, except for standard security expenses for himself and his wife. Instead, I want the funds that would have gone to his pension, travel, staff, and office space to be placed in trust for use in setting up the future 51st state of America created from Washington DC, which he abused shamefully during his term in office.
