TALKING POINTS :
1- Now Trump wants to use the military to “guard the border.” His ideas are increasingly unhinged, and the silence from his GOP colleagues in Congress and the administration is increasingly alarming. We’ll talk with our MOCs about this uptick in rhetoric and police-presence by our military in our own country and ask what they plan to do to stand up to him. These are dangerous times, and we can’t afford to write off these actions as “Trump being Trump.”
2- Sinclair Media is overtaking the Country. And overtaking the media is one of the key steps in overtaking a nation and dismantling democracy. We will ask our MOCs what they are doing to stop Sinclair’s heavy hand in news reporting at the local level across the country and what is being done to protect the airwaves from party-owned rhetoric.
3- Protect Mueller. Protect fair and free elections. The 2018 midterms are the watershed moment for our democracy. If those elections cannot be held in a fair and free manner, the future of our democracy is in grave danger. Likewise, if the Mueller investigation cannot be continued, our checks and balances are forever compromised. It’s exhausting and easy to lose focus as the fire-hose of issues and rhetoric bombards us daily. That’s Trump’s plan. We cannot fall prey to his malice. We’ll talk with our MOCs about their strategies to protect both the elections and Mueller.
