Michael Moore’s latest plan to save democracy from Trump.
Documentary filmmaker and activist Michael Moore has been spearheading much of the resistance to Trump since the 2016 election.
The Washington Post reported last month that “Of all the pebbles in President Trump’s shoe, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore has aspired — since before day one — to be one of the most conspicuous.”
Moore has called for Trump to step aside — even before Trump took office. He has attended protests and sworn that Trump “will not last these four years.” He has staged his own one-man play in New York that made no secret of its aim with its motto: “Can a Broadway show take down a sitting President?”
In February 2017, Moore launched an “Easy-to-Follow 10-Point Plan to Stop Trump,” and last night he published a new plan to thwart Trump’s efforts to disrupt Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation through his Supreme Court nomination.
“Here are 10 ACTIONS we must all immediately take to stop this detestable move by a president who may be weeks away from being indicted,” he began, adding: “Do not despair — ACT! We are the majority and we must never give up. No matter what the odds, basic morality demands our engagement NOW! You DON’T have to take this.”
Continuing, he called on Americans to “participate” in the following 10-point plan:
- Beginning immediately, we all participate in non-stop aggressive action everywhere against this heinous decision.
- Call both of your US Senators (202-225-3121) immediately (you can leave a message if they’re not there) and demand that no one who is nominated for Supreme Court by a President under investigation and possible indictment for treason or other crimes can be considered for the Supreme Court. This process to fill the vacancy must wait until Trump is either cleared or removed. Regardless of Trump’s legal problems, we must demand that only the new Senate can decide the next Justice.
- To those in the media who take their responsibility seriously, we expect intense investigative journalism into Trump’s nominee. There are skeletons in every closet.
- Please, John McCain, if you’re able, please speak out. Ask your fellow Republicans in the Senate to take a stand against Trump. One last favor to you who gave so much to his country.
- We resolve to electorally remove any Senator who puts a nominee on the court by a President under investigation and whose campaign manager has been indicted and his National Security Advisor convicted.
- We vow to punish all Democratic collaborators and centrist pundits/media who praise Trump’s choice in order to pacify and halt any opposition.
- There must be an aggressive get out the vote drive for every Democrat running for Senate. Nevada, Arizona, Tennessee! These Senate seats can be won by the strong Democrats who are running in each of these states.
- If you’re one of the people who has sunk into an understandable despair and you’re saying “we simply have no chance to stop this appointment!” — when the Senate is 50-49?! — Are u f***ing kidding me?! C’mon! We’re just one vote away from a tie! 2 to win!! This isn’t Mt. Everest! It’s like stepping into your shower. You haven’t fallen and you CAN get up!
- There must be nonviolent civil disobedience in the local offices and the Capitol Hill offices of all US Senators intending to vote for this appointment.
- Let’s form a human ring around the Supreme Court Building — and don’t break it until this nominee is withdrawn.
It is also important to note that, last year, Moore put together a set of tools to enable patriotic Americans in government, law enforcement or the private sector with knowledge of crimes, breaches of public trust and misconduct committed by Trump to blow the whistle on Trump and his rogue administration by using Trumpileaks, a web page on his official website offering a variety of different ways to securely leak information to him about Trump and his administration.
Taken individually or together, Moore offers Americans invaluable tools to push back against the Trump administration.
We have his “Easy-to-Follow 10-Point Plan to Stop Trump.” We have his “10 ACTIONS we must all immediately take” to thwart Trump’s efforts to obstruct justice.” And we have Trumpileaks which provides “the most high-powered encryption technology to enable courageous whistleblowers to privately communicate with [Michael Moore] and [his] team.”
Take these tools, use them and remember to get out and vote in the midterms this November, in fact – take at least two friends with you.
