With NAFTA renegotiations still going on, Sign for Good helps you tell your Congressfolk to ensure that any NAFTA renegotiation "puts people and planet before corporate profits," as the petition succinctly puts it. During his Tuesday night State of the Union address, President Trump called for trade deals that "protect American workers and American intellectual property." But the trouble with that isn't just that he's packed his cabinet with "free" traders, but that, for him, "protecting American workers" means nothing so much as getting rid of clean air and clean water regulations, which protects corporate bottom lines more than it protects coal miners' jobs. How odd that he advanced "intellectual property," too, since in previous "free" trade deals "protecting intellectual property" mainly meant protecting corporate drug patents longer so other countries couldn't make generics. So we're going to need to remind the President about our priorities, not his.
Meanwhile, H.R. 4837, the aptly-named No Unconstitutional Strike Against North Korea Act, would prevent Mr. Trump from using the 2001 AUMF to launch a military strike on North Korea and would refuse to fund any such strike unless Congress declares war first. H.R. 4837 doesn't "outlaw" war with North Korea, but merely prevents Mr. Trump from going to war on his own, and while supporting H.R. 4837 will prompt some Americans into calling you a "snowflake," remember that they are the real snowflakes if they let their own insatiable rage prevent them from adhering to our Constitution and to law and order. Hence the Friends Committee on National Legislation helps you tell your Congressfolk to fight warmongering by supporting H.R. 4837. Don't brook any silliness from your Congressfolk about their "unwillingness to tie the President's hands" -- being Commander-in-Chief means literally nothing until and unless Congress declares war. That's how it's supposed to work.
Finally, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell the Trump Administration to abandon its plans to open up almost all American coasts to oil and gas drilling, then the Sierra Club still helps you do that. The Sierra Club reminds us that the Obama Administration, after overwhelming public feedback, abandoned plans to hand out oil and gas drilling leases off our coasts in the Arctic, Atlantic, and Pacific Oceans; what changed between then and now? A manchild President who cares nothing about workers and everything about other bosses like himself, that's what. No, his plan to drill-everywhere-and-screw-the-consequences won't "create jobs" for oil and gas workers so much as it'll create unearned income for already-too-rich CEOs who live to get by with as few workers as possible. A visionary President would put good Americans to work retooling our electric grid so it can run on solar and wind power. A visionary politician would even run on that.
