Stopping Trump Before He Starts

Stopping Trump Before He Starts

Freedom Financial News | Posted June 25, 2024

Democrats and progressives unite to block Trump’s return, calling it a fight for democracy.

A coalition of Democratic officials and progressive activists is taking unprecedented steps to counter a potential Trump victory in November, framing it as a defense of democracy.

  • Preemptive Measures: Opponents are drafting lawsuits, conducting audits, and stockpiling medications to counter a potential Trump administration.
  • Coalition Formation: A diverse coalition is forming to preemptively oppose Trump, framing it as a defense of democracy.
  • State-Level Actions: Democratic states are preparing to counter potential federal actions, focusing on abortion access and civil rights.

Unprecedented Preparations

As the possibility of Donald J. Trump returning to the White House looms, his opponents are ramping up their efforts. They are drafting lawsuits, hiring auditors, and stockpiling abortion medication, all under the guise of defending democracy. This is not just a policy disagreement; it’s a coordinated effort to undermine a legitimate political opponent.

The Anti-Trump Coalition

A broad coalition of Democratic officials, progressive activists, watchdog groups, and former Republicans are coming together, driven by their disdain for Trump and his agenda. Joanna Lydgate, CEO of the States United Democracy Center, claims, “Trump has made clear that he’ll disregard the law and test the limits of our system. What we’re staring down is extremely dark.” However, many see this as fearmongering to justify their actions.

  • Lawsuits are being prepared to block Trump’s potential policies.
  • Democratic states are stockpiling abortion medication in anticipation.
  • A diverse coalition is forming to preemptively counter Trump’s plans.

The Fear and the Reality

Washington Governor Jay Inslee has secured enough mifepristone pills to last through a potential Trump administration, storing them in a state warehouse. He says, “We have it physically in the state of Washington, which could stop him and his anti-choice forces from prohibiting its distribution.” Critics argue this is more about political posturing than genuine concern.

2024: America’s Last Election

New documentary reveals why this could be America’s Last Election… and how the elites’ plan threatens to reset the entire U.S. economy, along with your 401(k), bank, and stock portfolio. All the facts are here.

The Trump Agenda: Authoritarian or Necessary?

Trump’s plans, including using the Justice Department to ensure law and order, sending federal troops into crime-ridden cities, and enforcing immigration laws, are painted as authoritarian by his opponents. Ian Bassin of Protect Democracy states, “He is no normal candidate, this is no normal election, and these are no normal preparations for merely coming out on the wrong side of a national referendum on policy choices.” Supporters argue these measures are necessary to restore order and sovereignty.

Strategic Coordination

Activist groups are mobilizing, learning from past experiences to resist Trump. Maurice Mitchell from the Working Families Party notes, “A lot of folks are in the mind frame of, What can we learn from the past? How can we apply those lessons going forward?” The ACLU, for example, is preparing by hiring a new auditor and mapping out scenarios to challenge Trump’s policies.

State-Level Defensive Actions

Recognizing the conservative shift in the Supreme Court, Democratic state attorneys general are strategizing to counter a potential Trump administration. California Governor Gavin Newsom has founded the Reproductive Freedom Alliance to coordinate state strategies on abortion and other issues. These efforts are seen by some as a preemptive strike against a duly elected administration.

  • Democratic states are proactively protecting abortion access.
  • Legal and organizational strategies are being developed to counter Trump.
  • Collaboration among liberal groups is intensifying in anticipation of potential challenges.

Conclusion: Preparing for a Legitimate Administration

The resistance is extensive and preemptive, with state-level actions and national coalitions gearing up to counter Trump’s policies. Michael Waldman from the Brennan Center for Justice says, “We are doing scenario planning for a Biden victory and for a Trump victory…for Trump, we are mapping out how to limit the damage from an epic era of abuse of power.” However, many see this as an overreach aimed at obstructing a legitimate administration.
