We have three calls to action for you to consider. Please set an hour aside this week to stand up and fight back.
- Demand investigation into Flynn’s Russian ties
- Keep partisan politics out of the National Security Council
- Stand with Standing Rock
Thank you for making yourself heard!
An inquiry into the government’s connections to Russia is non-partisan and affects the integrity of our democracy. Please fight for an investigation into:
1) Mr. Flynn’s information sharing practices with a foreign power before and after inauguration,
2) Comey’s complacency in these actions,
3) the remaining executive members who shared that knowledge,
4) the extent of that knowledge, and
5) when that knowledge was shared, as well as the full implications of these and other exchanges of information on American security.
On February 1st, U.S. Representative Stephanie Murphy introduced a bill (H.R. 804) to protect the NSC from political interference. This bill will ensure that no individual whose “primary responsibility is political in nature” is assigned to the NSC or authorized to attend NSC meetings, and it stresses that the Director of National Intelligence and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff have standing invitations to attend Principal Committee meetings. With this bill, Congresswoman Murphy hopes to “…depoliticize national security so that we never jeopardize the safety and security of the American people.
On January 18th, the Department of the Army published the Notice of Intent to require an Environmental Impact Statement in the Federal Register. This is another small victory in defeating the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline.
The fight, however, is still not over.
This notice opens the public scoping phase and invites anyone interested to help them to identify potential issues, concerns, and reasonable alternatives that should be considered in an EIS.
While the EIS is exactly what we called for, we must ensure that it fully takes into consideration tribal treaty rights, natural resources, cultural and sacred places, socio-economical concerns, environmental justice, and the health and wellbeing of those downstream who rely on our drinking water.
We need your continued support as this process moves forward.
The Department of the Army’s Civil Works division will be accepting public comment until February 20th, 2017
