Stop the Military Madness
“Military Madness is Killing Your Country.” Graham Nash

CALC will publish the following ad text in the Register Guard on Memorial Day, May 29th 2017.
To get your name in the ad,  send an email to and to help pay for the ad make a donation via the donation button on this web page.

Ad Text:

President Trump is following the playbook of tyrants throughout history, stirring up fear and advocating simplistic, militaristic, and destructive solutions to the world’s complex problems.

Now, more than ever, we must stand and take action together:

•To fight to reduce budget dollars for weapons and war. And to demand that the Pentagon be audited like other federal agencies.

•To oppose military-first solutions to global problems by supporting diplomacy, humanitarian assistance, and collaborative peace-keeping missions.

•To resist calls for more troops in the complex wars of the Middle East.

•To hold Trump and his military leaders accountable for increasing civilian casualties, which only fuel anti-American sentiments around the world.

•To demand reduction of nuclear weapons and support legislation that removes the power to launch nuclear weapons from one man and requires consultation and congressional approval.

•To fund desperately needed initiatives to save our planet by combating climate change and promoting clean energy—a real source of good long-term jobs.

•To support programs promoting education, providing affordable housing, preventing hunger, and building healthy, sustainable, and equitable communities.

Actions Opposing Trump’s Nuclear Weapons Plans

Here are some actions to help deal with the threat posed by the Trump Administration’s Nuclear Weapons Plans:

First, stay informed by signing up for Early Warning which is a daily news summary from Joseph Cirincione. To do this go to Ploughshares Fund, then issues and analysis tab, then early warning tab

Second, contact our Senators and Representatives to urge them to act on the Ted Lieu & Ed Markey bill in Congress to prohibit the president from firing a first nuclear strike. It is the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act H.R. 669 in the House of Representatives and S. 200 in the Senate.

About this bill: Currently the president can authorize a first use of a nuclear weapon so this bill requires that Congress must first pass an authorization for war before a nuclear weapon can be used by the president. Currently neither Congress nor the Supreme Court could stop the president from firing nuclear weapon(s) if he chooses to do so.

Action Needed: In the House of Representatives, Peter DeFazio and Earl Blumenauer are co-sponsors of this bill. So messages of thanks to them are needed for their support of HR 669. Ask the others to support this bill.

Neither Senators Merkley or Wyden are co-sponsors of the same bill in the Senate. Contact them to support this bill, Senate bill 200
Call them: Senator Merkley 202-224-3753
Senator Wyden 202-224-5244
Rep Peter DeFazio 202-225-6416
