Resistance Letter #37A



December 12, 2017
Day 325 of 1461 days

Dear Co-defendants –

We Ain’t Dead Yet, Redux.

We are still breathing.

Doug Jones’ victory in Alabama tonight will cause some soul searching and political recalculation in the Senate. Let us continue to make those calls to Flake, Collins, McCain and Moran, and any other senators on your personal radar. Jones’s triumph is a body-blow to Trumpism , and may have taken the wind out of some senatorial sails.

We’ll only stop opposing this taxscam when the last nail is in the coffin, and both houses have passed this monstrous legislation. No Surrender here!

Losing this taxscam battle, after losing Alabama, would be crippling to the Republican cause.


DACA Likely To Be Deferred

Schumer and Pelosi have both indicated that DACA negotiations will not be a bargaining chip in debt and budget negotiations. The Democrats don’t want to take the blame for any resulting government shut-down, and it is unlikely that anything could be done with DACA unless it is coupled with some border security funding. Remember too, that any DACA solution still needs Trump’s signature on it. There is no way you can bet on a veto-proof vote in both houses.

Alabama chooses: Pedophile or Democrat?

They appear to have chosen a Democrat! Mirabile dictu!


OR1 District-wide Training

All OR-1Activist Indivisiblovians are invited to a training session to be held Saturday January 6, 2018. Here is the event Info URL or
Saturday Jan 6, 1-5pm
Bethel Congregational United Church of Christ
5150 SW Watson Ave
Beaverton, OR 97005



Call Senators Merkley and Wyden and Representative Suzanne Bonamici to urge them to put a premium on solving the DACA situation.

Senator Ron Wyden – 202-224-5244
Senator Jeff Merkley – 202-224-3753
Representative Suzanne Bonamici – 202-225-0855

This senator stayed true to his word on deficits. A call of thanks would be in order, because this vote will come up again.

Senator Bob Corker(TN) – 202-224-3344

These two senators need to be reminded of their core principles regarding deficits and doing what is ‘good for America,’ not the Republican Party. They both should be reminded that both McConnell and Trump are not men of their word and cannot be trusted.

Senator Jeff Flake (AZ) – 202-224-4521
Senator John McCain (AZ) – 202-224-2235

These senators think they have made a deal about elimination of the ACA mandates with a promise of future legislation to be passed and signed prior to taxscam vote. That legislation is very unlikely to be passed and signed prior to the taxscam vote. Tell them not to be fooled; eliminating the mandate will cripple health care.

Senator Jerry Moran (KS) – 202-224-6521
Senator Susan Collins (ME) – 202-224-2523



The meeting is set for Monday, January 8, at 1750 NW 131st, 97229. Doors open at 6:30PM and the meeting starts promptly at 7:30 PM. Refreshments, both adult and juvenile will be provided along with a few tasty snacks.

L’audace, encore l’audace, et toujours l’audace!

Thank you.

John Fox
