Statement on the events of the last week

Indivisible 49

This week has been a rollercoaster ride - from the gloriously amazing wins of Georgia Senators Warnock and Ossoff, and all that means for a progressive policy agenda for the next two-to-four years, to the seditious attack on the US Capitol and State houses around the country. We are truly living in the best of times and worst of times. 

Regarding the attack, the emotion heard most from Democrats is anger. We have seen this coming for five years, and tried to warn complacent Democrats and Republicans since before the 2016 election. Now the evil that has been fed and nurtured is violently rearing its ugly head. Finally, newspapers, TV news, social media companies, businesses, and even a few Republications are waking up. Too little, possibly too late. 

We must hope that all is not lost, that enough good people exist to stand up to white supremacists, Nazi-sympathizers, Qanon supporters, and the rest of the Trump-fomented extremists. We know they exist in every level of our defenses, government, workplaces and families. But those spewing disinformation and hate have not won, and we must stand in solidarity against the lies and attempts at intimidation. 

Indivisible49 has been vocal on social media, especially Twitter. Below is our formal response, and calls to action, which due to the overwhelming risk of covid, are all virtual at this time. We will let you know if that changes. 

Indivisible49 Statement

Indivisible49 urges Congress to immediately impeach the President of the United States again, remove him from power, and bar him from ever holding office.  Impeachment is the appropriate tool. The vote in the House should happen this week, and the Senate hearing should happen as soon as possible, even if that is after January 20. 

We believe the President presents an extreme danger to our national security every minute he remains in office.  We do not have confidence that he will resign, or that the Vice President and President’s cabinet will use the 25th amendment to remove him from office, especially considering recent cowardly cabinet resignations.

The Wednesday, January 6, 2021 deadly assault on our capital by domestic terrorists is the direct result of the President’s encouragement, incitement, and actions following his loss of the election. 

Our representatives in government cannot allow him to hold the office of President and continue to threaten our democracy for even one more day. 

Immediate Actions

Call your representatives. 
Articles of impeachment have been drafted.  Here’s what you ask for:

  1. Hold an impeachment vote in the House ASAP this week. 

  2. Hold a speedy trial in the Senate to remove him from office, and not let him serve the remainder of his term.

Senator Feinstein: (202) 224-3841, email 
Senator Harris: (202) 224 - 3553, email 
Congressman Levin: (202) 225-3906, email 

In addition to the President, we believe that elected GOP officials who objected to the results of the election are also responsible. Their actions are in direct conflict with the oath they took less than a week before the coup attempt - to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”  The names and contact information of the 2 ringleader Senators and 7 California Congresspeople are below.

Contact them today by calling, writing, or faxing. The easiest way to fax for free is with an app like FAX. If you prefer Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, go here for links to the CA Reps. 

Tell them that, while Trump will be gone, the legacy of racism and the continuation of fascism will remain, and we expect them to stand against it. Let them know this week has been alarming, terrifying, disheartening, and full of grief for our country, and that they should either resign from office due to their part in it, or publicly denounce Trump and Trumpism and pledge to work in complete good faith as they swore in their oath of office. One tangible way they can show their willingness to work with the Biden/Harris administration is to quickly approve legislation or Cabinet confirmations.
