This is a VERY timely call-to-action, so please read and . . . Take Action!
We all cringed when Trump nominated Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson to be Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s replacement. You know, so he could help hand over our Arctic deep-water drilling rights and Northern trade routes to Trump’s boss, Vladimir.
Well, you know that 45 fired Tillerson, since the Arctic sell-off bizniz has been completed. Now, he wants a War Chief in the role. Queue Mike Pompeo, the disgraced anti-LGBTQ war-hawk Kansas Congressman Mike Pompeo.
This needs to be stopped ASAP. In order for the Reich to secure the Pompeo nomination, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee has to approve it. Only twice in recent memory has this NOT happened. In 1989, H.W. Bush had John Tower denied, and in 1985, our very own psychopath National Security Advisor, John Bolton was filibustered before Dubya inserted him as a recess appointment.
Well, Pompeo is just wrapping up answering questions from Foreign Relations committee members now. There are a couple Democrats on the committee who are considered “moderates,” who are vulnerable to falling for Republican BS. These are Jeanne Shaheen (NH), and Tim Kaine (VA). Both of them have been fairly conciliatory, and could use your calls and faxes before the committee vote. They need to be let known that should they stand behind installing a NAZI as our Secretary of State, they are not the kind of Democratic Senator who needs any of our help holding on to power they only deserve if they are representing our wishes.
If they flip to the white-nationalist Trump Reich and vote Pompeo through, they should just count on further support from the GOP in the future.
The vulnerable Democratic Senators and both their telephones and faxes are listed below. Please call and FAX over and over. If you are not from their district, it may help to give them an address from their hood. Included is what your address would be were you to live in their district at a grocery store I pulled off of the Googles. Give them that address and instantly they will give more of a crap about your opinion.
Please call them and FAX them NOW!!

Should our Foreign Relations Committee members fold and do Trump / Vladimir’s bidding, the Pompeo nomination goes to the Senate floor to be voted on by the entire chamber. It then would only need ONE Democratic defector to ensure Pompeo would become our Sec. of State. Here, Democrats are vulnerable. We elected a handful of RED State Democrats who are slave to their most Tea-Party, Freedom Coalition, white nationalist-deplorable constituents. These Senators need you to talk sense into them before it even MAYBE makes it out of committee.

They all need to know that although we’re not purity hounds, but if these representatives can’t RESIST trump and his creeping Fascism, we have no need for a majority made up of Trump moles.
