Another Dark Day Is Upon Us.
There's no way to put a good face on what will happen tonight at 8pm when Donald J. Trump begins his attempted takeover/coup of our United States Supreme Court. Tonight he will announce his first choice to fill the seat the Republicans have refused to let President Obama fill for the past year.
If you're still trying to convince yourself that a 21st century coup is not underway, please, please snap out of it https://t.co/uAz7o4BsvD— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) January 31, 2017

And there's more bad news on the horizon. Justice Anthony Kennedy has indicated he will retire this year. And many are worried about Justice Ginsberg's health. Thus Trump may have a chance to fill THREE seats on the court. This will damage the country for the rest of (many) of our lives.
His upcoming action tonight demands an immediate response from us. Most of the country lives near a city with a federal courthouse (US District Court) or federal office building.
Find the federal courthouse near you here.
We need to go in large numbers to our local federal site at 7pm ET tonight to protest his pick whom he's promised will make abortion illegal. Call your local media to let them know you're going to be there. Take pix and video and post them on social media. We must be loud and present on this most important issue on this most important night. I'll keep you posted here throughout the day...
