Call Your Two Senators and Voice Support for Trump’s Second Impeachment Trial, February 13, 2021 Edition

Call your two Senators and voice your support for the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, which began on February 9, 2021.

While Trump is on trial in the Senate, we at OTYCD ask you to call your Senators daily and voice support for proceedings, and for convicting him of the single count of inciting insurrection.

We expect to devote daily posts to this topic until the Senate trial ends, which could happen as soon as today (Saturday, February 13, 2021).

For this one, you should call your Senators only. The House of Representatives’ role was drawing up and delivering the impeachment charge. The Impeachment managers, who have come over from the House, are the only Members of Congress from that chamber involved in the current trial.

Once you have called your Senators, please ask friends and family to call their Senators and ask them to vote to remove.

Before placing your call, please check the social media feeds and press release sections of your Senators’ websites to see what they’ve said, or failed to say, about the trial.

It’s also worth Googling your Senators’ names before calling, in case one or both did something that isn’t headline-worthy but might have been noted in the text of a news story.

Find your Senators’ contact information, and help others find their Senators’ information, here:

whoaremyrepresentatives.org

Sample script:

“Hello Senator [Lastname], I am [Firstname Lastname] from [town, state, and giving your zip code helps too].

I am calling to voice support for the ongoing Senate trial of Donald Trump.

I ask you to continue to view and hear the evidence, despite how difficult that might be. When the time comes–and that time might come as soon as today–I ask you to weigh the evidence and please vote to convict and remove Trump on the single count of inciting insurrection.

I believe Trump is guilty, and I believe that holding the trial and acting to remove him is vital to protecting and preserving democracy in America.

Thank you for taking my call.”

Call Your Two Senators and Voice Support for Trump’s Second Impeachment Trial, February 12, 2021 Edition

Call your two Senators and voice your support for the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, which began on February 9, 2021.

While Trump is on trial in the Senate, we at OTYCD ask you to call your Senators daily and voice support for proceedings, and for convicting him of the single count of inciting insurrection.

We expect to devote daily posts to this topic until the Senate trial ends.

For this one, you should call your Senators only. The House of Representatives’ role was drawing up and delivering the impeachment charge. The Impeachment managers, who have come over from the House, are the only Members of Congress from that chamber involved in the current trial.

Once you have called your Senators, please ask friends and family to call theirs and ask them to vote to remove.

Before placing your call, please check the social media feeds and press release sections of your Senators’ websites to see what they’ve said, or failed to say, about the trial.

You should also read this February 11, 2021 story from a Forbes staffer about how more than a dozen Republican Senators failed to pay attention to the trial proceedings on day three. Some left the chamber, one took a phone call, others read papers. A few Senators–including Independent Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Democrat Tom Carper of Delaware, and Republican Tommy Tuberville of Alabama–seemed to nod off.

Story is here: https://www.forbes.com/sites/andrewsolender/2021/02/11/gop-senators-increasingly-absent-from-impeachment-trial-as-weariness-grows/?sh=67d10a382dd3

Now the annoying bit. Twitter was ablaze with the notion that 15 Republican Senators had failed to pay attention to the trial on February 11, but for the love of all and sundry, we cannot find a list that actually gives the names of the 15. The Forbes piece does name a few poorly behaved Senators, and none of the names will surprise you, but it does not specifically list the 15 who are alleged to have behaved poorly.

Yesterday we advised you to Google your Senators’ names before calling. It’s worth doing that today, too, in case a list of 15 Senators’ names goes public between the time we finish this story and the time you see it.

Otherwise, you know the drill.

[If you believe one or both of your Senators were among the 15 who were reportedly not paying attention and otherwise ill-behaved: I understand that during day three of the trial, as many as 15 Senators behaved as if they were not paying attention to the proceedings. I hope you were not one of them. I expect better of you as a Senator, and I expect you to take your duties as a juror seriously.]

While Trump is on trial in the Senate, we at OTYCD ask you to call your Senators daily and voice support for proceedings, and for convicting him of the single count of inciting insurrection.

We expect to devote daily posts to this topic until the Senate trial ends.

For this one, you should call your Senators only. The House of Representatives’ role was drawing up and delivering the impeachment charge; they have done their job.

Once you have called your Senators, please ask friends and family to call theirs and ask them to vote to remove.

Before placing your call, please check the social media feeds and press release sections of your Senators’ websites to see what they’ve said, or failed to say, about the trial.

Also consider Googling their names before you call. Some actions and behaviors during the second day of the Senate trial, which was February 10, 2021, don’t necessarily make headline news but are notable enough for you to mention.

For example, if you are from Missouri, you’ll want to know that one of your Senators, Josh Hawley, was acting as if he wasn’t paying attention to the proceeding, as recorded in this tweet from Garrett Haake (@GarrettHaake) of NBC News:

Just left the chamber, where most members were at least partially engaged with @RepJoeNeguse presentation. The biggest exception: @HawleyMO – sitting up in the gallery with his feet up on the seat in front of him, reviewing paperwork, throughout.

If you are from Oklahoma, you might want to know that Senator James Lankford–who happens to be one of the members of Congress who intended to vote to overturn the 2020 election results, but changed their mind after the January 6 Insurrection— had a powerful reaction to film of the incident that the Impeachment managers ran today, as reported by Andrew Desiderio (@AndrewDesiderio) of Politico:

While those graphic videos were playing, some senators looked away. Other stood up and leaned forward to get a closer look. Earlier, Lankford looked down and shook his head after seeing the video of Ashli Babbitt shot outside the House chamber.

Sen. Lankford (R-Okla.) was incredibly shaken up after that last video of Officer Hodges being crushed. I and other reporters in the chamber observed Lankford appearing to get teary-eyed. Sen. Daines (R-Mont.) was comforting him and was holding his arm.

Sen. Lankford afterward says of his reaction: “It’s painful to see … Who in God’s name thinks, ‘I’m going to show that I’m right by smashing into the Capitol’? Who would do that?”

If you are from Utah, you’ll want to know that Senator Mitt Romney saw, for the first time, security camera footage of Officer Eugene Goodman directing him away from the approaching mob, potentially saving his life. Garrett Haake tweeted:

.@SenatorRomney tells reporters the video presentation was “overwhelmingly distressing and emotional.” He had no idea how close he had come to the mob, and said he’s looking forward to thanking Officer Goodman when he sees him next.

Also, Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska was interviewed by a C-SPAN reporter and said: “I don’t see how Donald Trump could be re-elected to the presidency again. I just don’t see that.”

If you are from one of these four states, it’s worth referencing the relevant facts when you place your call to your Senators.

Find your Senators’ contact information, and help others find their Senators’ information, here:

Sample script:

“Hello Senator [Lastname], I am [Firstname Lastname] from [town, state, and giving your zip code helps too].

I am calling to voice support for the Senate trial of Donald Trump, which commenced on Tuesday, February 9.

I ask you to continue to view and hear the evidence, despite how difficult that might be. When the time comes, I ask you to weigh the evidence and vote to convict and remove Trump on the single count of inciting insurrection.

I believe Trump is guilty, and I believe that holding the trial and acting to remove him is vital to protecting and preserving democracy in America.

[If you are from Missouri and calling Josh Hawley: I understand that during day two of the trial, you behaved as if you were not paying attention to the proceedings. I expect better of you as a Senator, and I will remember your disrespectful attitude when you run for re-election.]

[If you are from Oklahoma and calling Senator James Lankford: I understand you were moved by the previously unseen footage shown on day two of the trial. I found it moving as well, and I hope you will hold it in mind when it comes time to vote to convict.]

[If you are from Utah and calling Mitt Romney: I understand you learned along with the rest of us that Officer Eugene Goodman may well have saved your life on January 6. I support your urge to thank him personally, and I would ask you to support S 35, a bill that would award a Congressional Gold Medal for his actions on the day. I would also ask you to hold the images you saw on day two of the trial in mind when it comes time to vote to convict.]

If you are from Alaska and calling Lisa Murkowski: I heard that you told C-SPAN you don’t see how Donald Trump could be re-elected to the presidency again after the presentation you saw on day two of the impeachment trial. I agree, and after the vote to convict, I would ask you to vote to bar Trump from running for office in the future.]

Thank you for taking my call.”

Call Your Two Senators and Voice Support for Trump’s Second Impeachment Trial

Call your two Senators and voice your support for the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, which began on February 9, 2021.

Sarah Jane here. I write pretty much all the stories on One Thing You Can Do.

I apologize for not having a post on this topic ready to go for the morning of Tuesday, February 9. Please forgive me; I’m dealing with what I believe is burnout and burnout-related issues.

While Trump is on trial in the Senate, we at OTYCD ask you to call your Senators daily and voice support for proceedings, and for convicting him of the single count of inciting insurrection.

For this one, you should call your Senators only. The House of Representatives’ role was drawing up and delivering the impeachment charge; they have done their job.

Once you have called your Senators, please ask friends and family to call theirs and ask them to vote to remove.

Before placing your call, please check the social media feeds and press release sections of your Senators’ websites to see what they’ve said, or failed to say, about the trial.

On Tuesday, all Democrats and Independents as well as six Republicans–Mitt Romney of Utah, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana–voted to affirm that the trial of Trump was consistent with the principles of the Constitution.

Cassidy is particularly interesting because he changed his mind. Last month, the Senate voted on the same issue, and at that time, Cassidy voted no. (It’s probably worth noting that Cassidy doesn’t have to worry about re-election until 2026.)

[If one or both Senators voted that the trial was constitutional, maybe use this line: I see that on Tuesday you voted to affirm that trying Trump is consistent with the Constitution. I thank you for voting in favor. As your constituent, this is exactly what I want you to do.]

[If one or both Senators voted no, maybe use this line: I see that on Tuesday you voted against the notion that the trial was constitutional. I am disappointed in your vote and I hope you will keep an open mind and take seriously your responsibilities as a juror.]

Thank you for taking my call.”

See and Bookmark the Georgia Resources Page, a One Thing You Can Do Work-in-progress

See and bookmark the Georgia Resources Page, a One Thing You Can Do work-in-progress.

After drafting and publishing the “Home State, Swing State, Red State” strategy, we at OTYCD hit upon a strong but absurdly labor-intensive idea:

We want to assemble resource pages for all 50 states.

We want each state resource page to highlight established organizations that help register folks to vote and help build the infrastructure needed for Democratic candidates to win elections. If all that stuff is there, worked out and hammered into place before a good Democratic candidate announces a run, it improves the chances that the Democrat will win.

We want to give preference to organizations founded and run by people of color and women.

We also most emphatically invite you all to submit organizations for us to consider. These can be national organizations with state chapters or entities that only exist within the state, or a portion of the state.

They must be on the ground, live, right now in the state, doing the work of promoting and expanding the right to vote and smoothing the path for Democratic candidates to come.

We’ll build and publish pages as we gather enough material to fill them out, and we will update them periodically. (Unfortunately, we can’t promise we’ll complete all 50 before the 2022 cycle hits.)

We’re going to start with the Georgia Resources Page because we already have the info in hand from the two months we spent on promoting the Georgia Senate runoffs (which we won, and we’ll never stop enjoying the fact of that win).

If you have tips or leads for any state resource page, including Georgia, please email them to:

onethingyoucando @ gmail.com

…and we’ll give them a look-over.

Figure Out Who Among Your Friends and Family Didn’t Vote in 2020, and Cultivate Them

Gently, carefully figure out who among your friends and family didn’t vote in 2020, and cultivate them.

First, the good news. A total of 66.7 percent of all eligible American voters cast a ballot in the November 2020 elections. That’s a clear and definite improvement on the 2016 election, when about 60 percent of all eligible Americans voted.

Now, the bad news: That turnout rate is still nowhere near good enough. It means that one out of three Americans who could have voted, didn’t.

While we did succeed in voting Trump out of office, the victory felt more narrow and precarious than it actually was, thanks to Trump’s repeated failure to accept reality and his aggressive attempts to bend it to his will, democracy be damned. We needed every Biden vote, and could have used more.

It’s certainly possible there’s no one in your circle who skipped the 2020 election. We asked you to talk to all of them and help them get to the polls, and we asked that of you over and over and over.

It’s important to check in with those folks and help them make voting a habit.

You’ll want to read your friends and family carefully. As of January 2020, they might well be politics-ed out.

Stick strictly to the 80/20 rule: Every time you bring up politics, you must also take care to discuss at least four other topics that have nothing to do with politics before you mention it again. (Exception: If your friend or family member brings it up.)

If you reached out to a nonvoting friend or family member last fall, you probably know if they’ve avoided voting because they hit obstacles–difficulties with registering or staying registered, lack of transportation, or an inability to take time off. You might have helped that person get around those obstacles.

If you have a determined nonvoter, or you’ve just discovered a nonvoter in your circle, it might be best to try a softer, more indirect approach in the months following Biden’s Inauguration–talk to them about what matters to them. Then think about what they said to you, and research how those things might connect with politics and voting.

The guiding principle, always, is to put their needs ahead of yours.

The point is to serve them by helping them learn more about politics, how it affects their lives, and how they can exercise some measure of control over things.

If you come off as if you’re doing this for yourself, or if you actually are only doing this for yourself, back off and reassess.

This tactic is a modified version of one of our earliest stories, in which we asked you to think about the three things that are most important to you:

https://onethingyoucando.com/2020/05/09/think-what-three-things-are-most-important-to-you-4/

The suggestions in that story really reflect the second step in the process–you can’t necessarily assume your friend or family member cares about First Amendment issues or climate change in and of themselves.

But! Let’s say they spend a lot of time playing video games, or hiking in wooded areas.

Video games can, and have, been directly affected by First Amendment issues. In the past, moralists have tried to ban games or restrict their content. You can relate video games to politics and voting in that manner.

Same again for the hikers–If you like being outside, you care about the environment. You don’t want to see it wrecked by people who only care about making more money.

Environmental issues, such as climate change, enter the picture here. Caring for the forests they like to hike fits neatly with fighting climate change.

When you feel the time is right, start having these broader conversations about their passions; think of ways to connect those passions to politics and voting; and, later, talk to your friend about those connections.

Keep the conversation going on some level (again, never let it take up more than 20 percent of your time together) unless the person directly asks you to stop.

Think About Your Core Four PLUS–Four Dems Plus a Voting Rights Org–to Support in 2022

Start thinking about your Core Four Plus–four Democrats plus an organization that supports the right to vote–in 2022.

We can guess what you’re thinking. “Uh, Sarah Jane? All y’all? Didn’t we just get done with 2020? Why are you nudging us to think of 2022?”

Yes, we did just get done with 2020, and its unplanned sequel, the twin Georgia runoff races (which we won, hooray!) And yes, we are nudging you to start thinking about 2022 in February 2021.

Putting out the 2022 version of the Core Four Plus story this early wasn’t the original plan.

But looking at the way the GOP has acted since the January 6 Insurrection has us worried. Trump seems to be reigning over the party from Mar-a-Lago, and he’s actively encouraging the GOP’s worst instincts by meeting with and encouraging people such as fresher Georgia House Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Point being–the Republican party hasn’t learned from the past few months. At all. It seems to be embracing the crazy even more strongly and desperately.

The GOP’s media mouthpieces are following suit. Fox News pushed out two election decision desk staffers who called Arizona for Biden early but correctly, and has tilted away from actual news and towards the opinion offerings of its prime time lineup.

Cites: https://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory/fox-news-political-executives-arizona-call-75358852

https://www.washingtonpost.com/media/2021/01/18/fox-news-shakeup-news-opinion/

Consider that traditionally, the party in power usually loses seats during mid-term elections.

Now consider how painfully thin the Democrats’ margins are in the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Yeah, we need to get on this now.

Maybe the next few years will accelerate the demise of the GOP. Maybe it won’t be viable come Tuesday, November 8, 2022. We’ve seen several stories about Republican voters in assorted states changing their party affiliation following the January 6 Insurrection, and numbers from Gallup back up that finding.

But it’s unwise to assume that will happen. Best to make what plans we can now for the mid-term elections that we know are coming.

So! We’re asking you to sketch out your Core Four to the extent that you can at this stage, and asking you to stick with the Core Four Plus–four candidates, plus a voting rights organization.

At this point, it might make the most sense for you to give the most attention to the Plus side of the equation–to entities such as Spread the Vote, Fair Fight, and Black Voters Matter, to name three. If that’s how it works out for you, so be it.

The traditional Core Four consists of four Democratic candidates, two incumbents and two challengers. For each chamber of Congress, you chose a Dem incumbent and a Dem challenger.

You should start with your home state. If you have a good Democratic House Rep, throw your support behind that person if you aren’t already. or continue your support. At this early stage of the game, support mostly takes the form of knowing what your candidate is doing, and making monthly campaign donations.

If you have good Democratic senators who are up for re-election in 2022, and you aren’t already supporting them? Please get on that.

In general, it’s too early for good Democratic challengers to have stepped forward.

While you wait, consider budgeting and setting aside eventual donations to those two future candidates.
