Please distribute this alert as widely as possible

We accomplished our overnight objective from the last alert. Senators Kerry and Kennedy were inspired to step up to the plate to lead a filibuster of the Alito nomination, and we applaud them for their leadership. A cloture vote has been forced for Monday, January 30 at 4 PM, on an Alito filibuster, which the mainstream media had written off as a possibility.

NOW, here's what we do next

1) We of course rally every voice we can to speak out our senators demanding that they support a filibuster against the Alito unitary executive agenda. But since many are telling their senators that they will no longer vote for them if they do not support the people's filibuster, we must ALSO

2) Immediately field primary election challengers against those senators up for election this year who will not protect our Supreme Court from a reactionary takeover. We must pressure those who have already stated they will perversely vote for Alito, Byrd (WV) and Nelson (NE), and also Landrieu (LA) and Feinstein (CA), who may vote "No" but have stated they still oppose a filibuster.

Nebraska and California have deadlines within weeks. Full details below.

The bottom line is that any senator who betrays the interests of the people by not supporting this filibuster must NEVER hold public office as a Democrat again. If the will of the people is not heard at the cloture vote, it WILL be heard in every election from now on. To this cause we dedicate our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.


The most important and critical thing we must do is generate as many phone calls as possible. Personal phone calls are the highest impact way to make your opinion known. We have been told that calls and faxes to the senators' LOCAL district offices are given the highest weight. You can look up all their number in an instant at

You should try the local numbers first, leave messages there and then ALSO try them in Washington where you can call any senator toll free at 888-355-3588, 888-818-6641 or 800-426-8073. We need get as much done on this today, a day we are calling Filibuster Friday II, while they will definitely be in their offices. And then we need to keep it going all weekend long, as long as there is a senator's answering machine connected anywhere.

Now that we know how close we are to winning it will be much easier to inspire everyone else you know to also speak out. Remind them that the mainstream media lied by trying to tell us there wouldn't even be a filibuster. If they don't think we can prevail they have seriously misunderestimated the power of the people again.

All progressive blogs, news digest sites and opinion sites must dedicate a feature section at the top of your main page for links and toll-free phone number to encourage your visitors to speak out. in particular is setting a magnificent example with headlines to action links plastered all over their main page. As a progressive community we control an ENORMOUS amount of conglomerate web page space, which if applied in unison will be overpowering.

After you've made all your calls and sent all your faxes, you should sign the petition at, and you can send personal real time messages direct to your senators internet gateways with the one click form also at
