President Trump: Save lives. Don’t pause the pause!

Small “d” democracy

By Mark Lurinsky

Late Sunday night, President Donald Trump shocked the nation by suggesting on Twitter that he may shortly reassess encouraging the social distancing measures meant to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, measures that only became widespread a little over a week ago. He argued that the economic impact of the various emergency measures could “be worse than the problem itself”. On Tuesday he suggested that the U.S. economy will be “open” by Easter Sunday.  Media reports suggest that influential members of the Trump administration are now prioritizing the concerns of certain corporate entities over the consensus advice of public health experts inside and outside government who have been adamant that more time is needed and many more resources have to be made immediately available before we can begin to consider relaxing any containment measures.

President Trump needs to be reminded: everyone’s life now depends on listening carefully to the science.

Join The BlueWaveNJ Environmental Committee

Please join BlueWaveNJ’s environmental committee, which is doing extremely important, time sensitive work this year. We need your help and engagement.

Sign up at this link here.

Politically, on the federal level, we will be expanding the successful program we started in the 2018 mid-terms to do issue-oriented canvassing in swing districts to make sure voters know of the stark choice they have between candidates such as Tom Malinowski, Mikie Sherrill and Any Kim, who recognize the urgency of climate change, and their opponents who support the agenda of climate change deniers. Climate change advocacy can play a huge role in keeping our Congressional districts blue. 

On the State level, BlueWaveNJ is one the groups taking the lead in attempting to obtain a moratorium on all new fossil fuel projects. We have already been partly successful in having the Murphy administration agree to the regulation of greenhouse gases. However, without continued grassroots pressure there is the risk that these regulations will not be enacted in the first term and they may never get enacted if there is a change in administrations. We are organizing a hopefully enormous Earth Day rally in Morristown on April 25 to support our goals.

All of you know we cannot wait another year, month or day to take the action needed to minimize the catastrophic impact of climate change. If you want to be an effective part of that effort, please join us and sign up for our committee by March 27th. We can’t do this without you.

Will Trump's Actions Bring War with Iran?

Small “d” democracy

By Mark Lurinsky

There are two likely reasons we are not in a full-blown war with Iran in the wake of Donald Trump’s assassination of General Qassim Soleimani, neither of which the president can take any particular credit for: First, the leaders of the Islamic Republic seem to have been careful to limit their immediate reprisals to targets that would result in a low number of U.S. casualties.[1] Second, the Tehran regime stonewalled and lied for three critical days before admitting responsibility for the accidental shooting down of a civilian Ukrainian airliner with 176 people aboard, and the revelation of its cover-up attempt caused a massive new wave of internal protest and also canceled out much of the sympathy the Islamic Republic had received from the world community in the immediate aftermath of the assassination; the fallout from that incident further limited the regime’s options for violent moves. Only time will tell if additional reprisals from Iran and/or Trump will further escalate the conflict.

A grassroots, progressive organization seeking solutions through community

BlueWaveNJ has become a respected grassroots organization recognized for the know-how and energy of its thousands of committed volunteers and supporters.

Our working groups, conferences, marches and special events have mobilized voters and coalitions to demand positive change from our legislators at the state and federal level in such critical areas as health care, the economy, marriage equality, the environment, education, electoral reform and sensible gun control. We have held major conferences on gun violence, stem cell research, Middle East peace, diversity and commercial sexual exploitation of children, and our nation’s growing health care crisis. We have distributed thousands of educational flyers, circulated petitions,  and written hundreds of letters and directly lobbied legislators and officials demanding that they save Social Security, protect net neutrality, restrict corporate media concentration, promote alternative energy production, provide universal health care, promote “clean elections,” install reliable voting machines, ensure quality education for all, and pass marriage equality legislation. We have also trained thousands of volunteers who help elect progressive leaders at local, state, and national levels. 

Join us as we continue our fight in areas like electoral reform, social justice, and economic justice.
