Activism / Resources
* The Tap (Ballotpedia). This is a weekly newsletter of politics news and events, including Trump news, special elections, SCOTUS activity - a whole wide range of stuff. Definitely worth subscribing.

* State legislative special elections, 2017 (Ballotpedia).

* WTF Just Happened Today, a daily politics news twitter. Nice for getting just the headlines from, without all the repeated retweets some twitters do.

News / Analysis
*Robert Mercer: the big data billionaire waging war on mainstream media (Guardian). Read only if you want to turn your panic up to 11.

* Ohio Gov. Kasich says House conservatives may cause "problem" passing Obamacare replacement. This is REALLY interesting to me - it suggests that some GOP congress members are so conservative that there's no satisfying them AND the base that's demanding that they get to keep their health care benefits, so the Republicans will have to work with (/ make at least moderately happy) some Dems to make up for those lost conservatives. (In addition to the Dems they'd have to have to pass any bills at all, obviously.)

* Chris Christie tells GOP lawmakers to hold town halls: ‘You asked for the job. Go do it.’ (WaPo)

* Churches Are Readying Homes And Underground Railroads To Hide Immigrants From Deportation Under Trump (Buzzfeed)

* I Was a Muslim in Trump's White House (Atlantic)

I don't really like Kasich but he is one of the more sane Republicans out there.

People have really been letting their reps know via calls, showing up at town halls, that ACA is really important for them and they don't want it repealed. Seems like it's making at least some Republicans think twice about it.

Yeah, Robert Mercer is terrifying.

I didn't know that churches were getting ready to do that. Wow. I can't believe it's come to this.
