Protest at the Federal Building: Impeach Now

 

WHAT: Protest of the president’s crimes and demand for impeachment

WHERE: Federal Buildlng, 310 New Bern Avenue, Raleigh 27601

WHEN: 11:30 am to 12:30 pm TODAY Tuesday September October 1

This is part of a national mobilization.  Everyone will sign the following letter:

October 1, 2019

Dear Senator Tillis,

We appreciate that you took the time this week to listen to the soldiers and families at Fort Bragg.  This could not have been easy for you.  It would be so great if you would know that, having survived this difficult event, you are strong enough to continue to listen to your constituents.

It is true that the President is more popular than you are in our state, so we understand why you would think that continuing to defend him might improve your own political fortunes.

We also understand why you are afraid of him.  He is a bully who will stop at nothing to stay in power.  He is also fighting for his life and for the lives of his family.  All of them are deeply implicated in numerous crimes.

Now he and Senator McConnell and AG Barr and apparently the head of the State Department are betting that Trump’s ability to whip people into a frenzy of hate will allow them to take over the House as well as keep the Senate and the White House.

We ask you today if you really want to be part of this plan.  Have you so totally sold your soul that you want to bet your own life on such a fragile house of cards?  Will lies win in the end, or truth?  Will brute strength crush all voices of reason, and all songs of love?  Will the earth die because a few wealthy men are determined to continue to amass wealth by cultivating hate and false conspiracy theories and crimes?

It is not too late to do the right thing and to be on the right side of history.  Please listen to those of us who are crying out for the future of our democracy, which has shown itself to be extremely fragile.  And please try to listen to your own heart and your own conscience.  At some point it will be too late, and this time is coming soon.

Impeach Now

 

Here is Senator Tillis’s statement on the transcript:
“Nancy Pelosi should be embarrassed. The transcript debunks the Democrats’ false claims against President Trump and demonstrates that their call to impeach him is a total farce. This is yet another pathetic attempt by Democrats to destroy President Trump with falsehoods to overturn the results of the 2016 election. It has not worked in the past, and it will not work now.
“The Democrats’ obsession with defeating President Trump using any means necessary is now threatening the federal government’s ability to focus on real solutions like securing our border, rebuilding our military, and cutting more taxes for hardworking Americans.”
Here is a link to the transcript:

Every American needs to read the transcript and judge for him or herself whether impeachment of the President should occur, and whether Senator Tillis is honoring his oath of office.

Protest at the Federal Building: No President is Above the Law

WHAT: protest of the president’s crimes and demand that Congress hold him accountable

WHERE: Federal Buildlng, 310 New Bern Avenue, Raleigh 27601

WHEN: 11:30 am to 12:30 pm TODAY Tuesday September 24

The Raging Grannies, elderly activists in costume, will perform a song with the following chorus:  “Thinks he’s a king now, a delusion, and its his fatal flaw, sooner or later he’ll pay for his crimes, ‘cause he’s not above the law.”

Over 70 participants are expected.  Everyone will sign the following letter to Senator Tillis.

Dear Senator TIllis,

Surely you can see that the president must be impeached.  He has admitted that he asked Ukraine to help him hurt Biden, and in that connection he threatened to withhold military aid that had been authorized by Congress.  This is extortion and blackmail.  He is coercing a foreign power to open an investigation on a political rival, repeatedly asking a foreign government to do his dirty work.

This is exactly what happened in the 2016 election.  He has publicly said that he sees nothing wrong with this.  Do you?

This president undermined every single branch of our intelligence service, contradicting their findings in favor of Putin while standing next to him.

He blatantly encourages foreign leaders (and members of the Administration and military) to enrich him and his family by staying at his hotels.  This is a violation of the emoluments clause of the Constitution.

He goes out of his way to alienate our closest allies while displaying obsequious behavior toward foreign dictators and autocrats.  He clearly wants to rule the way they do, hinting that even if he is voted out he will stay in office.

He lies every single day.  He regularly engages in racist and misogynist rhetoric.

People are waking up to the climate catastrophe and public pressure to do something about it grows stronger ever day, yet he goes out of his way to deny climate science and make sure that methane emissions and car exhaust continue to escalate.  

Your party so far has displayed an unwavering determination to win at all costs, no matter what kind of cheating and lying and selling out of American values this requires.  You took an oath to defend the Constitution. It is never too late to do the right thing.
