Counter Trump’s Insane Conspiracy Theory:  What Is He Hiding?

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 loudly and publicly tell the truth and  condemn the lies Trump and the Republicans are telling about investigations into his wrongdoing.

Like everything Trump and Nunes have cooked up, their big lie is absurd on its face. But their voice is omnipresent;  yours is silent and there is a real danger that their story will prevail through repetition. The FBI ran counter-intelligence to protect our country and the Trump campaign. Subsequent investigations were because Russia did interfere with the election and there is ample evidence that Trump’s campaign was involved. Multiple people have been arrested. And Trump’s lies make no sense. Tell the public the truth, over and over, and loudly. Don’t let Trump’s message predominate. Do it NOW.

Burning a Counter-Intelligence Source Endangers Us All

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 flood the airwaves with the message that burning a counter-intelligence informant has endangered Americans now and into the future.

Trump cares only about himself and Republicans are only too happy to help him. That is why they have been willing to attack our intelligence services with lies. Their latest attack on the rule of law has been to burn the counter-intelligence source charged with countering Russian interference into the Trump campaign in 2016. The effort was subtle and aimed at thwarting Russia, thereby protecting both America and the Trump campaign. Trump’s insistence otherwise is one more piece of evidence of his wrongdoing. By outing the counter-intelligence asset, the Republicans make it likely that others – agents and nations – will be wary of helping us in the future. This endangers all Americans. Raise your voice!!!

Prevent Russian Influence in Our Elections

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 call out Republican indifference to Russian interference in our elections.

They did it in 2016. They’re getting ready to do it again. Russians, enabled by the Republicans who need their help, will attack our elections again this year. Warned about the Russians in 2016, McConnell refused to sign on to a bipartisan announcement to make the knowledge public. Warned about the Russians this year, Republicans are yawning. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said, unbelievably, ““I do not believe that I’ve seen that conclusion. That the specific intent was to help President Trump win? I’m not aware of that.” The Republicans are acting like traitors, continuing to allow a hostile foreign power to aid their chances. Call them out. Publicly. NOW.

Thank You for Your “NO” on the Banking Bill

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to thank the Senator for her NO vote on the banking bill that weakened the protections from Dodd-Frank.

Democrats should never have voted for this bill and Schumer was wrong to let them. At least you stood up and I thank you for that!

Yes on SB 49:  Protect Our Environmental Standards from Trump

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask the Assembly member to support SB 49 to ensure that California protects its environment regardless of the Federal government attempts to undermine our standards.

In response to the Trump Administration’s promised rollbacks of federal environmental regulations, Senate Bill 49 (“SB 49”), is an effort to protect California’s environmental standards.
●    SB 49 would prohibit state and local agencies from amending or revising their rules and regulations in a manner that makes state laws or standards less stringent than pre-2017 federal standards.
●    To the extent that state air and water laws do not already codify pre-2017 federal standards, SB 49 would require state agencies to establish such standards.
●    SB 49 would also require any species listed as endangered or threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act to have the same listings under state law.

Yes on SB 100 for Clean Energy

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask the Assembly member to support SB 100 to ensure that 100% of California’s electricity is produced from zero-carbon resources by 2045.

●    SB 100 will accelerate the state’s current clean energy goals.
●    It requires 50% clean electricity by 2026
●    60% clean electricity by 2030
●    And sets a new goal of 100% of California electricity to be carbon-free by 2045.
