✊ The Action Alliance: Resources for the Resistance

The Action Alliance was/is a loosely federated group of organizations that, in the wake of the 2016 election, are sharing daily or weekly calls to action. We came together to connect, coordinate, and create greater impact with the common mission of helping you identify the most impactful actions to take each day.

Call for Collaborators: Many of these organizations are defunct or no longer actively maintained. This topic is a wiki post, which means anybody can edit it to help keep the list active and up-to-date. Feel free to add, delete, update URLs as necessary.

A vast trove of unreliable websites…pulled together by this methodology.

To create the index, we combined five major lists (see below), then eliminated the sites that were no longer active. We only used lists that were public and curated by established journalists or academics, contained original data (rather than information from other lists), stated their criteria for inclusion and defined how they graded different sites (see our methodology for more).

The index’s initial release relies on the five major lists’ determinations and definitions of “unreliable.” Our next release will include more sites and the criteria we used for inclusion.

But for now, here are the databases of unreliable news sites that we pulled from to create our index:


I found this link within a NYT opinion piece declaring as of 10.9.19 the WH rebuttal letter to the Impeachment Inquiry group is “Bananas.”

There is ample evidence to get the House to impeach T…but then what? If as we might expect, more stonewalling from the WH in the face of irrefutable evidence then there should be more public protest. And this links to town hall meetings, and protests, under Find an Event.

I called Pelosi today…to urge the vote. Maybe you can too.

What’s the right response from each of those groups?

For other Republicans, it’s remembering that they don’t need to submit to Trump. Even though he says the earth is flat, they can say it’s round.

For the media, it’s using plain-spoken, objective language to state that Trump’s position has no Constitutional basis. The president’s position isn’t supported by federal law.

For the Democrats, it’s being both tough and smart. File subpoenas and try to persuade judges to force Trump administration officials to testify and hand over documents. If that doesn’t work — or drags on for weeks — find other ways to make the case to the country. Don’t allow the impeachment inquiry to be derailed or slowed too badly by Trump’s obstruction.

And there is one other group that should be responding to the president’s lawlessness: the public. Call your member of Congress. Attend a town-hall meeting in your district.


I was looking for some information on what T 'n Co has done in terms of deregulating environmental laws, financial, health, education and safety areas…and here’s a link which breaks it down by area.

Overview: Public Protections Under Attack

Since taking office, the President Donald Trump and conservatives in Congress have rolled back hundreds of commonsense safeguards at the behest of regulated industries that would have protected ordinary Americans, our environment and our economy. Voters did not ask for these deregulatory rollbacks and do not support them. Polls show overwhelming bipartisan support for stronger safeguards and tougher enforcement.

The 27 lost safeguards described below are intended to be a snapshot of what Americans have lost or are in the process of losing. These rules were selected because the harms to the public are particularly widespread, alarming or insidious – and because they illustrate the diverse range of issues, communities and constituencies harmed by deregulation.

Over the past two years, opponents of public protections repeatedly have turned to three major avenues of repeal: the Congressional Review Act, industry lawsuits and agency deregulation.

The Congressional Review Act. A holdover from Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America, the Congressional Review Act (CRA) allows Congress – by a simple majority vote in both chambers, with limited debate, no possibility of a U.S. Senate filibuster and the president’s signature – to overturn recently issued regulatory protections. Health, safety, consumer and environmental standards that took years or even decades of resource-intensive analysis, comment and review can be wiped out in a matter of days or hours. The 115th Congress, with President Donald Trump’s support, repealed a total of 16 public protections using the CRA’s expedited process. Many are included here.

Lawsuits by Regulated Industries. Large corporations, industry trade associations and corporate-funded advocacy groups frequently sue in court to block or overturn essential regulatory protections. Aiding and abetting their legal efforts over the past two years has been an administration hostile to regulation of any kind – and therefore disinclined to defend regulatory safeguards in court. Many of the rules that were blocked or overturned by the courts might still be in place under an administration more eager to preserve them.

Administrative Actions by Federal Agencies . Agencies throughout the Trump administration have targeted for repeal a wide range of landmark protections. The Trump administration is justifying many of its rollbacks through dubious changes to the cost-benefit calculations that favored strong protections. The repeal of specific rules has been coupled with a much broader push against regulation. In addition to abandoning or withdrawing hundreds of forthcoming rulemakings, Trump’s deregulatory task forces, his “two-out, one-in” executive order, his attacks on science and scientific expertise, and his appointment of corrupt corporate insiders and anti-government zealots have combined to stack the deck in favor of big corporations and against protecting the public.

The lost safeguards featured in this report are grouped into four categories: 1) consumer and financial protections, 2) energy and environmental safeguards, 3) workplace and educational standards, and 4) public health and safety protections.

And many more…just link below.

The 27 safeguards detailed above that have been lost over the past two years represent only the faintest glimpse into the broader war on regulation, which includes attacks on science, pullbacks in enforcement, corporate capture of the rulemaking process, anti-regulatory and deregulatory legislation, and conflicts of interest that underpin it all.

Behind nearly every one of these attacks is a single unifying cause: boundless corporate greed. Most stories about deregulation and regulatory repeal are also stories about how big money interests have leveraged their wealth and influence in the halls of power and in the courts to dismantle popular and commonsense safeguards that protect the public.

It is crucial for ordinary citizens, journalists, public policy advocates and lawmakers to recognize that the loss of those protections at the hands of corporate greed is one of the central stories of the Trump era – and ultimately take action to challenge and resist these attacks.
