Prevent War, Hold Trump Accountable, and Stop Trump’s Wall!


During this past week, Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) stepped up our activism on the most important issues and increased our organizing to elect progressives to office.

Among the most pressing are protecting voting rights, removing Trump from office, halting Trump’s mad rush to war, stopping Trump’s racist and impotent wall, overcoming inaction in the face of the Climate Emergency, enacting Medicare for All, canceling student debt, and ending poverty and homelessness.

With another round of Democratic Presidential Debates coming up next week, and the Iowa caucuses and early primaries following quickly thereafter, now is the time to get fully engaged!

Stay Informed! Read PDA’s Recent Posts. Then, help us make progress on the issues and help elect the candidates discussed.

Tell Congress: Trump Threatens Our Constitution


Then Contact MikeFox@PDAmerica.org to Get Involved


In case you missed our email yesterday, please consider what my colleagues Debra Schrishuhn and Dan O’Neal shared: Trump’s blatant disdain for our Constitution continues to erode and unravel the fabric of our institutions.

We must hold this administration responsible for its criminal disregard for the rule of law and Constitutional limits on power. How do we do this?

Some background:

The Trump Administration’s reckless and illegal assassination of highly ranked Iranian and Iraqi leaders on Iraqi soil has had terrible, unintended consequences. It made Iran appear lawful, measured, and ethical in its response, and united the Iranian and Iraqi peoples in disgust with American policy and—by extension—with Americans.

Purported “evidence” of an imminent attack as rationale for the assassinations is “razor-thin,” according to officials subsequently briefed, and the timing suggests a more self-serving motive to divert attention from Trump’s actually imminent impeachment trial.

In sadly predictable fashion, U.S. Border Patrol officers have begun targeting Americans of Iranian descent for harassment and detention, continuing this Administration’s cycle of bigotry, persecution, and xenophobic exclusion.

Meanwhile, the Trump Administration continues building its racist and demonstrably ineffective border wall along the southern border. On Wednesday, the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals stayed a December injunction, allowing the Administration to spend disputed appropriations on the Wall.

Ignoring environmental, safety, and fair-bidding regulations, the Trump administration is pursuing eminent domain declarations to wrest private land from American landowners in the border states. Congress must act to halt this dangerous idiocy.

Join us demanding accountability for Trump’s reckless and premeditated assaults on our Constitution and way of life.
