Let's make Today January 2nd, and tomorrow, January 3 go down in history. The Supreme Court is our last defense to block President-elect Donald Trump's administration from doing their worst.
The most important action President Barack Obama can take to protect Americans from fascism is to confirm a Justice to the open seat before leaving office. Call on President Obama via the White House switchboard: (202) 456-1111 and tell him to advance every possible judicial appointment by tomorrow!
There are at least three ways President Obama can fill the Supreme Court vacancy on January 3, 2017:
- A recess appointment, which will last for a senate session or two (at the same time he can fill the 59 federal judgeships to end the “judicial emergency”).
- A vote using the “nuclear option” before new senators are sworn in on January 3rd.
- Conclude that the Senate has waived its constitutional right to “advice and consent” by failing to act.
Call on President Obama via the White House switchboard: (202) 456-1111 and tell him to advance every possible judicial appointment by tomorrow!

Support Representative Ellison for DNC Chair!
Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) is proud to have Keith Ellison on our national advisory board, and we stand with Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and many of their colleagues in calling for him to be the next chair of the DNC. Rep. Keith Ellison is the "Anti-Trump." He's thoughtful, calm, smart, progressive, and he happens to be the first Muslim American ever elected to Congress. Keith has agreed to step down from Congress to serve full time as DNC Chair. He's dedicated to rebuilding the Democratic Party from the grassroots, working in every single county in the USA. That's the leadership and dedication we need.
Keith has been a serious fighter for all of our progressive issues. He's committed himself to work full-time in all 50 states as DNC Chair, offering to step down from his House seat if elected to chair the DNC. He's been an exemplary Co-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. His character and integrity are unquestioned, and he's shown the ability to build coalitions to engineer real change.
Donate $500, $50, or whatever you can now to support Keith Ellison for DNC Chair
Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote: "Keith and I have had the chance to work together many times over the past several years. I’ve watched up close as he has pushed hard to try to hold Wall Street accountable through his work on House Financial Services, and he has consistently exercised bold leadership for the Congressional Progressive Caucus. I admire Keith’s values, his grit, and his dedication to making this country work not just for some of our kids but for all of them. I’m proud to support his candidacy for Chair of the Democratic National Committee."
