BREAKING: Trump announces Supreme Court nominee

Meet Trump's Supreme Court nominee:
DemocratsJoin us.
Trump just nominated ultra-conservative Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Add your name: tell the Senate to reject Judge Gorsuch.


Friend --

Judge Neil Gorsuch, Donald Trump's newly-revealed Supreme Court nominee, has a legal history that shows a deep sympathy for corporate interests and an apparent disdain for workers.

Donald wants to put Judge Gorsuch in the Supreme Court seat the GOP stole from President Obama. Add your name to tell the Senate to reject his nomination.

As an attorney, Judge Gorsuch routinely represented big businesses in class action lawsuits. As a judge on the Tenth Circuit, he wrote a concurring opinion in Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius -- the case that allowed employers to deny basic health care coverage to women by ruling the Affordable Care Act's contraceptive mandate was unconstitutional. He upheld a decision that denied long-term insurance benefits to a worker who sustained a work-related injury that required spinal surgery. He even dissented from a ruling in favor of a truck driver whose employer illegally fired him for abandoning a trailer with locked brakes -- so he wouldn't freeze to death.

And as a member of the ultra-conservative "Federalist Society," Gorsuch believes in severely restricting the power that federal agencies like the EPA have to regulate businesses.

It's not hard to see why Trump loves him so much -- but from where we're sitting, Judge Gorsuch has no business on the Supreme Court bench. Add your name if you agree.


Thanks so much,

re: the first ten days

Help us fight back against Donald Trump and the GOP.
DemocratsJoin us.
Before our midnight deadline, pitch in $10 or more to show you're part of the movement against Trump and the GOP.


Friend --

It's not a stretch to say that Trump's first two weeks in the White House rank among the most damaging and embarrassing moments in our country's history.

The bad news is he's just getting started. And Republicans in Congress have done nothing so far but roll out the red carpet.

But I hope you won't lose sight of a few bright spots:
  • All over the country, people are standing up and speaking out against Trump's agenda -- organizing and marching, not because they support one political party over another, but in defense of the values that define what it means to be American.
  • Our Trump War Room has kept a spotlight on Trump's every move around the clock, responded to every single one of the administration's "alternative facts" -- on everything from the size of his crowds to his deplorable and unfounded voter fraud claims, on his ridiculous southern border wall, his illegal Muslim ban, his gutting of the Affordable Care Act, and more -- with the truth. And we are fighting to take down his most offensive Cabinet nominees.
  • Our first two DNC Future Forums have been huge successes, giving grassroots Democrats a chance to share their visions for the future of our party and hear from the candidates running to be Chair and officers of the Democratic Party. And in a few weeks, our new leadership will be in position and ready to get to work against Trump's Republican Party by exposing Trump's tyranny in real time and developing winning strategies to reclaim Congress in 2018 and remove Donald from office in 2020.
Make no mistake -- we still have a lot heavy lifting to do as the Trump administration keeps getting started. But if we work as a team, then I know there's no obstacle we can't power through.

Before midnight, can you pitch in $10 or more and make an investment in that work? I want to make sure you can show off your Democratic pride everywhere you go, so we'll make sure you get an Official Democratic Membership Card in your mailbox soon.

re: the most dangerous administration in history

Let's get to work.
DemocratsJoin us.
Before our midnight deadline, pitch in $10 or more to show you're part of the movement against Trump and the GOP -- and we'll send you an Official Democratic Membership Card:


Declaring war on the media, beginning to repeal Obamacare, reinstating the global gag rule that cuts funding from NGOs that even mention abortion, moving forward with the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, ordering construction of his signature border wall, ordering a ban on Muslims entering this country -- this administration is shaping up to be the most dangerous administration in history. And we're only a little over a week in.

Donald and his Republican pals in Congress are holding true to their campaign promise to undo all of the progress we achieved under President Obama, and then some. So we are going to have to make sure that we are doing everything we can to fight back as hard as possible. And the way that this administration is going, it'll take each of us being all-in.

Our end-of-month deadline is tonight at midnight. How much we raise between now and then will determine how we can fight back against this administration in its first 100 days -- it's that simple. Will you pitch in $10 now to make sure that we're able to take on Trump and the GOP every single day? We'll send you your Official Democratic Membership Card in the mail when you do.

If you've saved your payment information, your donation will go through immediately.

QUICK DONATE: $10
QUICK DONATE: $25

Thanks for being a part of this -- we couldn't do it without you.

Seriously and literally

We still have an important job to do
Factivists
Holding Donald Trump, his administration, and the rest of the GOP accountable is one of the most important parts of our work.

Become a Factivist today to get the latest information about what they're up to, then forward these emails to your friends and family to keep them in the loop, too.



Hi there --

Throughout the campaign, Republicans and Trump supporters tried to reassure us that he should be taken seriously, but not literally. We're now one week into his presidency, and he has followed through on nearly every outlandish, offensive, and un-American idea he peddled on the campaign trail:

This will never be normal -- load image


From his Muslim ban:

There is so much wrong with this -- load image


To an extreme crackdown on immigration:

Democrats are standing up -- load image


He's gone above and beyond even what we thought was possible, launching a war on science:

Ugh -- load image


And on totally unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud:

This is bad-- load image


From day one, the Trump administration has shown a willingness to mislead the American people when the facts are inconvenient to them:

What we're up against-- load image


That's why your job as a Factivist is more important than ever. Trump and his team are working every day to discredit everyone from the media to the National Park Service -- anyone who tries to hold them accountable. But we're not going to stop. Keep sharing, tweeting, and otherwise getting the word out about what this administration is doing and what we as Democrats can do to stop them.

Thanks for standing with us. Talk soon,

Nobody can prepare for this

Help me defend the ACA
Read why the Affordable Care Act matters to Adam*, and then say you're in to defend it:


Fellow Democrat --

It's hard to be totally prepared to have your first child, but I was determined to do my best. My partner and I were responsible -- we saved, we planned, we made checklists, we called our insurance company to make sure our daughter would be insured from the moment she entered the world.

What we didn't plan for was for Maria to be born at 27 weeks and have to spend 7 weeks in the NICU.

But when that happened, I made the dreaded call to my insurance company to make sure that we weren't bankrupt when it was time to take our little girl home. And I was told that she wouldn't be covered because being born premature was considered a pre-existing condition.

A child, who had done nothing but come into the world early, was considered by insurance companies as nothing more than a liability. The Affordable Care Act was still fairly new when she was born, but I knew they could not deny my daughter coverage for pre-existing conditions -- so I called back at least eight or nine times until they finally agreed to provide coverage for her. It was a weight lifted off of our shoulders while we waited for her brain scans to come back to see if she had any brain damage from having been born prematurely.

Thanks to the ACA, Maria is now thriving in kindergarten. She is smart, funny, witty -- and truly the light of our lives. I cannot thank President Obama enough for giving our daughter a fighting chance. I can't even imagine how differently things could have gone had she not have had health insurance.

We are a middle-class family that works hard and expects no handouts from the government. Yet this situation could have deeply affected our daughter's life and destroyed our family's finances if not for the Affordable Care Act. Republicans talk a lot about the sanctity of life. But those same people are willing to let helpless babies potentially be denied lifesaving health care because being born early can somehow be considered a pre-existing condition -- and it just doesn't make any sense. It can happen to anyone, and it's only when it happens close to home when you realize how important access to lifesaving health care is.

Will you stand with me in the fight to save the Affordable Care Act for the millions of Americans who depend on it for access to health care?



Thank you,

Adam L.
Los Angeles, CA
* At Adam's request, we've used pseudonyms for him and his daughter.
