Thursday 10/25 Call to Action

Thursday 10/25

Trump’s rhetoric has again proven how horrible people think they can behave, because that’s how POTUS speaks and acts. It’s time to elect or re-elect individuals with the morals we expect from those in high power. The GOP isn’t going to hold Trump accountable. If we don’t put a check on Trump in twelve days, there will be no holding back of his rhetoric. 

1. Bombs
Trump held a rally in WI last night and continued his criticism of Democrats and the media, while Law Enforcement are dealing with and protecting high profile Democratic figures along with  CNN from potential explosive devices. 

The list has grown since the FBI first released this statement. 

2. More judicial nominees pushed ahead
Two of the nominees considered on Wednesday - Bridget Bade and Eric Miller - were picked by Trump to serve on the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which handles cases arising from several western states including California.
Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, a Republican, said the committee scheduled the hearing dates with the agreement of the panel’s top Democrat, Dianne Feinstein. She disputes that.”

3. But Her Emails
Remember when Trump falsely accused Pres. Obama of wiretapping his campaign? Or when Sec. Clinton sat for congressional hearings about using a private server for emails? Trump has flat out ignored warnings from intelligence officials that China and Russia are eavesdropping on his personal phone calls. This is a national security nightmare.
“The officials said U.S. spy agencies had learned from people in foreign governments and by intercepting communications from foreign officials that China and Russia were listening to the president’s calls.”

4. We need young people to vote.
“I feel like this season has really seen people wanting to get involved, and with my friends it’s going to be the first time or second time they are actually voting ... they’re seeing everything that’s going on and saying, ‘I’m going to be a part of this, I’m not just going to sit by.’ And even though it’s not a big election, they know it still affects things. … Even within local communities, even though we aren’t affecting national things, we are representing who we are here.””

Get to Work!
Campaigns are combining forces in a big push to Get Out The Vote. Minnesota’s DFL is coordinating door knocking and phone banking events throughout Minnesota. Sign up here for as many times as you can handle. After midterms, when you look back and wonder if you were part of the solution, what you do in these next few weeks will be a big part of your answer. Do it! Volunteer.
Coffee & Canvass Conversations: OFA-MN is hosting a "Coffee and Canvass Conversations" meeting, where we'll be discussing best practices for having effective conversations with voters—whether on the phones, at the doors, or with friends and family members. Check it out the Saturday, then get your butt out there and talk to voters.
Study after study shows that the most effective way to get people to vote is by having conversations with them in the four days before Election Day (Saturday, November 3rd–Tuesday, November 6th). Volunteer here to be part of the last big push.
Use Vote Forward to send letters to voters in MN01- Hurry! Time is running out!
Who says Democrats don’t have policies? Here are great graphics on Democratic positions to read and share. Let’s spread the word! If we are on twitter, we can also retweet this thread here…/…/105201430304442777
The Secretary of State’s website has all the information you need to get your vote on. You can figure out where to vote and even get a sample ballot so you can do your research ahead of time.
Fun Fact: Even though online registration is closed, Minnesota voters can register in person when they vote, now through November 6th. Please bring a valid ID, a bill that states your address, or a registered voter to vouch for you. Vote! Vote! Vote!
Candidates cannot win without help from us. Commit today to doing your part.
Each candidate on the November ballot has a website where you can sign up to volunteer. Every person can do at least one thing per week to help these candidates win.
