This week on End Times Pep Talk:

Rebecca covers the NRA’s Russia connection on “Bitchfest.” Smitha discusses how to handle the Shit Hole Shutdown on “This Doctor Makes House Calls”, and Megan talks about the Senate’s extravagant use of charts (and also some messaging/procedural stuff) on “LISTEN UP DUMMIES!”


NOTES:

BITCHFEST:

Vox had an article last week on Trump as last bastion of straight male patriarchy.

NRA officials have cultivated close relationships with influential Russians with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Track the Bots!  HAMILTON 68

The NRA spent $55 million – or perhaps tens of millions more, according to some reports — to influence the 2016 elections.

MAIN ASK OF THE WEEK:

Well the shutdown came and went. And while people will be debating for a long time which “side” won that is missing the point.  We have our values for which we are fighting and for which we have to keep fighting.  We must stand up to racism and help those who need it most.  We are still in desperate need of protections for Dreamers and a DREAM Act  The only chance we have of making the GOP stand up to Trump’s racism is to be loud and shame them into passing these bills.

Script for calling your Congressperson and Senator

“I am calling to as my rep/senator to only vote yes on the next spending bill if it has a DREAM act.  We must refute the Trump administrations racists attacks.  This bill has bipartisan support.  If the rep/senator does not support it then he/she supports the racist trump agenda.”

Second Ask

Script if you can make a second call this week

“I am calling to as my rep/senator to only vote yes on the next spending bill if it has a DREAM act, TPS protections and community health centers funding.  We must take of those who need it most and stand up to the racist Trump agenda”

And lastly –get your midterm game ready.  Pick house and senate race to champion. Or support them all at https://contribute.itstarts.today/2018

All of the above is predicated on Mitch McConnell keeping his word and/or enough people in the GOP get shamed into doing the right thing because we keep the pressure on.  There is a chance the extremist elements in the GOP are not negotiating in good faith and the only path we have is to vote them out!


LISTEN UP DUMMIES!
