BECOME AN ARMCHAIR WARRIOR

The Broward Democratic Party executive board is launching a new campaign to fight the effect of Russian influence and propaganda on American media. Russia-linked Facebook accounts  were found to have encouraged politically-motivated violence in the U.S. during the contentious 2016 election. Facebook also revealed during testimony this week that the Kremlin-linked ad campaign reached about 146 million Americans. And, Russia trolls are on facebook now. Facebook now estimates that nearly 200 million of its users may be fake accounts.

We are asking you to become an armchair warrior to fight for American Democracy. Please go on Facebook, Google, and Twitter and share, copy and paste postings to your timeline and ask your friends and neighbors to join the fight and post valid source information to fight the Russian, KKK, White Nationalist, Neo-Nazis, and Republican false propaganda and fake news.

Go to this site:  https://www.facebook.com/BrowardDemocrats/ or https://www.facebook.com/countable.us/and hit the share button or copy and paste posts to share on your timeline so that your friends can see the post and share it also. Let’s get the truth out to save American Democracy

MARCH INTO 18 PROGRAM – MAKE A VIDEO

FROM: Bob Sciranko, organizer for the DCCC and FDP for South Florida:

I’m really excited about working with you all again and join in all the great work you have been doing on the ground already.  The DCCC is excited about their March into 18 Program we are starting by asking grassroots Democrats to record videos sharing why it’s personally important to defeat Republicans and take back the House.

The link below is an easy to use website to record a 1 minute video so you and your fellow Democrats can share why you are getting involved and why taking back the House is important to you.  We want to hear your personal stories so we can share them with the country and motivate voters.

Congress will be working next week on the Trump administration’s tax plan so we really want to get stories from people who will be negatively impacted by the new tax plan (i.e. people with medical expenses, student loan interest, local and state taxes, etc.)

Here is the link: dems.me/video_submission

After you’re done, please share your video on your own social media accounts.

Also feel free to send feedback on the site and on any creative ideas you may have to implement it to robert@floridadems.org.

Thank you all so much for your help!!

VICTORY BUT THE BATTLE GOES ON

On Election Day, Tuesday, the Democratic Party won the Governorship of New Jersey and Virginia. But more important, the party also won elections for Mayors, City Councilmen, state representatives, dog catcher etc. It was a clean sweep for the Democratic Party and a clear repudiation of Trump and the Republican Party. Thank you to all of you who called or contributed to this Victory.

However, the battle goes on.

INVESTIGATION BY MULLER –  2 Indictments and 1 Guilty plea so far.  The Republicans have introduced bills in Congress to eliminate or scale back the investigation. If Trump fires Muller, immediate demonstration at all Federal Courthouses in every city.

DACA and Trump’s plan for immigration reform – There might by demonstrations. We defeated trumpcare by calling and jamming up Congressional phone lines. 800,000 Dreamers are at risk of being deported. Please make that call ON November 14 – NATIONWIDE CALL IN TO MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

THE BIG ISSUE – TAX REFORM – THIS NEEDS OUR ACTION. We defeated Trumpcare and now the Republicans are trying to bring it back in the form of “tax reform and cuts”. We have to defeat the Republican budget WHICH IS BASED ON THIS TAX REFORM that benefits the rich.  THE NEW BUDGET OUTLINES $473 BILLION IN CUTS FROM MEDICARE AND $1 TRILLION FROM MEDICAID OVER THE NEXT DECADE, plus cuts to Education, EPA, etc, etc.TAX CUTS WILL ADD ROUGHLY $1.5 TRILLION TO AMERICA’S DEFICIT OVER 10 YRS. CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET OFFICE WARNED THAT IT COULD ADD AN EXTRA $6 TRILLION TO THE DEFICIT – IT COULD BANKRUPT THE US. Trump has gone backrupt 4 times. Now he wants to bankrupt us. THIS TAX PLAN IS FOR THE 1% RICH. It is not for the middle class.

YOUR LOCAL DEMOCRATIC CLUB MEETING

CALANDAR OF EVENTS

Oct. 24, Tuesday – 7 PM – DEC Meeting at Deicke Auditorium – This is very important for the election of a second VP.

This Week – From UniteWomen.org – Trump budget vote this week! Call Senate: “Say no to $1 trillion cuts to Medicaid for big tax cuts to the rich.” 844-241-1141
Today’s Daily Action: Call your senators. Tell them to vote NO on the Trump Republican budget today. This budget enables massive tax cuts for the wealthy. The budget cuts Medicaid by $1 trillion over the next 10 years and makes big cuts to Medicare, education, and more. These terrible tax cuts would cost us $2.4 trillion over the next 10 years. We say: Not one penny in tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations. And not one penny in cuts to health care, education, and Social Security. Tell your senator: Reject this bill today. No tax cuts for the rich, and no cuts to the programs that invest in all of us. 844-241-1141

 What’s Next

VOTER REGISTRATION CHANGES – October 6th, the following article appeared in the Sun-Sentinel announcing that it was now possible to register online, WITHOUT PRINTING ANYTHING OUT AND WITHOUT HAVING TO MAIL ANYTHING BACK!  Cindy Kent wrote that:  “The Florida Department of State has launched the new online voter registration website, RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov, providing Florida residents another way to register to vote or update an existing registration.  The website for the online voter registration is offered in English and Spanish and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  To register to vote online, Florida residents will need a Florida driver license or state identification card and the last four digits of their social security number to complete and submit the voter registration application electronically.”  Florida residents must also provide the date the license was issued.  So, a bit more information than is required on the official voter registration form, but still, this is a step forward.

 INVESTIGATION BY MULLER – DID TRUMP COLLUDE WITH THE RUSSIANS? DID TRUMP INTERFER IN AN INVESTIGATION? THIS CAN LEAD TO IMPEACHMENT Please share on Facebook legitimate sources of information.Keep Trump’s lack of morality and the investigation in people’s minds. SHKeARE ON YOUR TIMELINE

Results of Summer of Resistance –

THIS IS WHAT WE DID IN 3-4 MONTHS

Total number of voter registration forms submitted to SOE office   OVER 300

Total number of petitions for restoration of rights OVER 4,000

From Alan Ehrlich  We had a great week at Broward College, even though we had to contend with a lot of rain and a whole bunch of paid solicitors.  Our wonderful volunteers were able to register 94 students and collect 334 rights restoration petitions!

WE DEMONSTRATED AGAINST RACISM AND HATRED From Rick Hoye, 1st VP of Broward Democratic Party: Yesterday, August 30th, 2017 marked a pivotal day in Broward politics and community advocacy. The City of Hollywood Commission voted 5-1 to rename the Hood, Lee, and Forrest streets in the neighborhood of Liberia. For more information of the events of yesterday, check out this recap from the MiamiHerald. The Broward Democratic Party is proud of everyone who stood tall and made their concerns known. Impassioned advocacy is what this County and Country will continuously need. For more than a decade, in this predominately African-American neighborhood, residents of Liberia have fought to change the street signs, and yesterday, their hard work finally paid off. We are all of one community, and yesterday that fact was made known loud and clear.

WE DEMONSTRATED FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

WE DEMONSTRATED AGAINST TRUMP ON TAX DAY

WE DEMONSTRATED FOR EQUAL RIGHTS

WE DEFEATED TRUMPCARE BY CALLING SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES You are responsible for this victory. It was your phone calls that lead to the defeat of trumpcare

WE CAUSED REPUBLICANS TO USE THE “NUCLEAR OPTION” TO GET THEIR SUPREME COURT NOMINEE. They changed the rules to approve a nominee from 51 votes to 60. This will come back to hurt them when we return to the majority in the Senate

WE DEMONSTRATED AND CALLED FOR A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO INVESTIGATE COLLUSION WITH THE RUSSIANS AND TRUMPS ROLE IN IT.

HUNDREDS OF YOU HAVE GONE TO THE BROWARD DEMOCRATIC PARTY WEB SITE TO REGISTER YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS AND HAVE PARTICIPATED IN FACEBOOK AND OTHER SOCIAL MEANS OF COMMUNICATION.

MANY OF YOU HAVE ATTENDED BDP TRAINING SESSIONS FOR VOTER REGISTRATION, VAN TRAINING, AND CANVASSING

Coming Up in September – 3 important issues

Investigation of Trump’s Campaign and Presidency – There is still a call out for an immediate demonstration if Muller is fired. Follow and share postings on Facebook. This is very important to keep it in the public view – Share on Facebook

Congressional Budget and Tax Reform –  This will probably be a phone demonstration. We need you to join AMPLIFY and make those phone calls. Watch for an email list of targeted House members. This was largely responsible for the defeat of Trump care. The Republicans still refuse to work with Democrats –

CALL TO KILL THE SENATE HEALTH BILL BEFORE IT KILLS YOU

TRUMPCARE 3.0 RELEASED

The latest Trumpcare bill has just been released and here’s everything you need to know about it:

·       Medicaid is still facing enormous cuts.

·       Planned Parenthood will still be demolished.

·       Insurance companies will now have the ability to scam hardworking Americans with worthless, high-deductible health care plans.

·       $100 billion in new tax cuts for the extremely wealthy. Including $4 Billion to Trump’s children, $53 Billion to Waltons of Wal-Mart, $34 Billion to Koch Brothers

 

PLEASE CALL TO KILL IT BEFORE IT KILLS YOU.

WE NEED 3 REPUBLICAN SENATORS – 2 HAVE SAID THEY WILL VOTE AGAINST IT. Remember that we needed 1 vote to block Betty DeVos nomination and we did not get it. We have to win for our families, children, seniors, workers, disabled –  22 Million will lose coverage –  People with prior health conditions will not be insured. Premius and deductibles will go sky high.

ACTION ALERT!

We need you to be at this event on Tuesday!

NATIONAL

DAY OF ACTION

TO STOP TRUMPCARE

Indivisible South Florida is teaming up with Action Together Florida, PDA Broward, Florida Action Network, Broward for Progress, Democracy Spring, Organizing for Miami and others to bring you a NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION to stop Trumpcare on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 from 11 AM – 1 PM at the office of US Senator Marco Rubio, 8669 NW 36th Street, Suite 110, Doral, Florida, 33166, located next door to Trump National Doral Miami

 

Let’s make sure Senator Marco Rubio does not walk onto the Senate floor to vote without thinking of the many faces of Florida constituents who would be devastated by TrumpCare.

We know we’ve been fighting this fight for a long time. We wouldn’t be ringing the alarm bells now if we didn’t think this was a critical moment.

McConnell wants a vote next week. We’ve beaten him before when he wanted a vote, but it took massive, coordinated local pressure effort.

We know many of you are exhausted. We are all are! But this is the time that we have to stand up and fight for ALL which includes CHILDREN, SENIORS, POOR and the DISABLED.

We need to encourage Senator Marco Rubio to represent all Floridians, not just wealthy donors.

Make that phone call

Instead of a March or Rally, we need you to make phone calls. The vote is coming up in the Senate for the Healthcare bill ACA. Our Senator, Bill Nelson, is fighting hard for us. Call him to say thank you and most important CALL, TEXT, FAX the GOP Senators on this list even if they do not represent you. Their vote affects you.

 Please call even if you get a busy signal. That means it’s working – We want to jam up their switchboards with so many calls because it shows that the majority of Americans do not want TRUMPCARE.  WE WANT A VOICE.

 BROWARD DEMOCRATS HAVE A NEW TOOL AND EASY WAY TO MAKE THOSE CALLS – AMPLIFY, a free app that makes it easy to call with other members.

  • Install the app for iPhone or Android at getamplify.org/iphone or getamplify.org/android
  • Sign up for a new account
  • Enter the Broward Democrats team code 009-565=000
  • Or use the list of phone numbers on the bottom from Indivisible Miami.

 There is a National Impeachment March in Washington, DC and West Palm Beach July 2. We will keep you informed.

 WE REALLY NEED YOU TO MAKE THAT CALL

 Effect of Trumpcare on Florida
The AHCA would shift $7 billion in Medicaid costs to Florida over the coming decade. State lawmakers would inevitably have to choose between making massive cuts to education, transportation, or other areas of the budget OR cutting off residents from much-needed healthcare coverage. Who will be hit the hardest if Florida rations healthcare spending? Low-income children, mothers, seniors, and people with disabilities will be hit the hardest.

  • 2 million Floridians stand to lose coverage if this bill becomes law.
  • 1.4 million Floridians who currently get financial assistance to help pay for their health coverage will lose this help.
  • 7.8 million Floridians with pre-existing conditions like asthma, diabetes, and cancer could once again be denied affordable, comprehensive, life-saving coverage.
  • Florida lawmakers would have to scramble to come up with $2.8 billion annually in state funds for the high-risk pool.
  • The AARP analysis found an estimated 450,000 Floridians between 50 and 64 would face higher premiums under the AHCA—more than any other state.
  • More Florida healthcare stats can be found here.

What You Can Do!

It’s CRITICAL that you reach out to Marco Rubio every day until the vote. You can find contact info attached.

  • Call, email, fax, and Tweet@ your MoCs again and again.
  • Post a #SAVETHEACA message with a call to action everyday on Facebook, Instagram, and SnapChat.
  • Visit your MoCs offices in person.

What to Say
The Senators must VOTE NO on any healthcare bill that—

  • Decreases the number of insured Americans.
  • Increases premiums to purchase healthcare.
  • Cuts or caps Medicaid.
  • Caps lifetime benefits or excludes people with preexisting conditions.
  • Increases costs for the elderly.
  • Defunds Planned Parenthood.

IS TRUMP A TRAITOR TO AMERICAN DEMOCRACY?

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/local/broward/fl-sb-march-for-truth-20170601-story.html

We marched in the rain down Las Olas Blvd. on a Saturday nite at 6 PM with a police escort. Over a dozen of Trump’s advisors including his personal attorney and son in law are involved in the investigation of Russian influence in our election. Why hasn’t Trump released his tax returns – What is he hiding? Why did he interfere in the investigation of Flynn and fire his FBI Director? We want the “TRUTH”

JOIN US SUNDAY, JUNE 11.  Watch for more email information from your club, caucus, or area leader

WHY WE MARCH FOR TRUTH

March for Truth

 

The March For Truth kicked off with a series of tweets on April 30th, just one month ago, calling for demonstrations on June 3rd to demand an end to the culture of deceit in Donald Trump’s White House and a complete investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and ties to the administration.

When we pushed the idea out, we were concerned that the Russia investigation was being stifled. The scandal over Devin Nunes’ handling of the House investigation and reports from journalists like Tim Mak that the Senate investigation had made little progress and was under resourced inspired us to try to draw attention to the Russia investigation.

Well, the following week Donald Trump fired James Comey. A special counsel was appointed. Sally Yates and James Clapper testified. John Brennan testified. And the compounding revelations in the press- including the most recent bombshells that Jared Kushner sought a backchannel to the Kremlin and had more undisclosed contacts with Russians during the Trump campaign and transition- are driving enormous public interest and outrage in this issue.

Soon, thanks to hundreds of independent local organizers and grassroots organizations, #MarchForTruth events popped up in more than 120 communities across the country and in sister cities in Europe.

That’s what drove interest from our national partner organizations, including Women’s March, Indivisible Guide, MoveOn.org, Town Hall Project, OurStates.org, Free Speech For People, The Opposition, Rock the Vote, Progressive Democrats of America, Lawyers for Good Government, Swing Left, Working Families Party, Stand Up America, Rise to Run, Action Group Network, and flippable.

Now, we need your help. We need you to join us June 3rd. There are marches in most states across the country- you can find one here in the below link. And, share the word. Spread this link, and spread news of the March. Tell your friends, tell your groups, and help us make June 3rd a strong statement that Americans demand the truth.

The next few weeks are crucial. We must keep up the pressure on lawmakers to exercise their oversight over a President who seeks to obstruct an investigation that strikes at issues core to our sovereignty and the rule of law. As Representative Elijah E. Cummings put it last week, “This is about the fight for the soul of our democracy. We cannot afford to lose this one.”

Join us June 3rd!
