Phone Scripts 2.19-21.2018: Censure Trump/Gun Violence + More

Failures. Failure to protect the US. Failure to protect students. Failure to address immigration and the DREAMers. Failure to protect our Constitution.

This short list of failures is sad. Thank our Members of Congress for their efforts to address these failures.

Censure Trump for Failing to Protect the U.S.

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to censure Trump for failing to protect the United States against continuing attacks by Russia.

Robert Mueller this week provided clear proof of Russia’s attacks on our democracy, yet Trump has refused to take any measures at all to protect our country. He must be censured and, as soon as it’s politically possible, impeached.

Will [the MoC] demand his censure today?

Continue to Push for Gun Control

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to thank [the MoC] for their dedication to gun control measures that would protect our children and ourselves. Please keep up the fight and know that our country is rising to fight with you!

After the AR-15 rampage in Florida this week the gun control effort has new and vital champions:  the students from Parkland’s Douglas High School. High school walkouts are being called for and the new activists from Florida are issuing their call:  the NRA free-for-all must STOP.

We will join with the students and all who demand gun control measures to protect our citizens. Thank you for your efforts!

Revoke Jared’s Clearance

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to demand that the White House revoke the security clearance of Jared Kushner.

Rob Porter may be gone, but the danger to our national security lives on. Kushner, only in his role because of nepotism, has amended his security clearance application countless times. His clearance still isn’t complete. Furthermore, he’s in serious financial trouble, needing to refinance 666 Fifth Avenue, a property he bought at the height of the property bubble and which he has been unable to refinance. This gives him every incentive to trade American intelligence secrets for investment help. This presents a grave danger to our country.

Will [the MoC] demand that Kushner’s clearance be revoked?

Republicans Must Own the Dreamer Deportations

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to make it clear from this day on that Trump and the Republicans own the deportations they will inflict upon the Dreamers.

Republicans and Trump have never – never – operated in good faith on the fate of the Dreamers. They have pretended to and have tried to create a smokescreen that would make it easier for them to escape blame. But the truth is that they have never, ever made a serious effort to find an equitable solution. It is critical that the public see this clearly:  the fate of the Dreamers is the Republican’s fault. They must own this.

John Kelly Must Go

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to demand the resignation of White House chief of staff John Kelly.

Kelly has protected Rob Portman, knowing that Portman was a potential blackmail risk because of the abuse allegations against him, and then lied about it. Like the president*, he also effectively condoned Portman’s abuse. And this isn’t the first time Kelly has lied. It should be the last. He must be fired.

Will [the MoC] demand Kelly’s firing today?
