A Lot of the corporate Dem’s are getting with the resistance, but far far too many are still rolling over and playing dead for Trump. We have to put just as much pressure on the “left” as we do on the right.
Why we need to FIGHT Trump Today.
Personally I can’t trust someone who has been conservative since they were a kid…youth should be liberal. But that is not the only reason to deny Trumps court pick. Its simply true, supreme court picks can’t be picked until the people get to speak in a presidential election (or at least that is what the Republicans would have us all think). And since the last election was an overwhelming victory for Clinton in the general election, I would think we would have to wait another 4 years to really know for sure what the people think. He also happens to be a horrible corporate sell out who doesn’t believe in the separation of church and state…so either way.
Trump will destroy the separation of church and state, allow churches to endorse politicians. When religion and politics ride in the same car, prepare for a crash.
Secret President Bannon seems to have gotten his panties in a knot after one of his former
employee’s goons had his bigoted talk canceled by protesters. The scary thing here is that The “real” president Trump has threatened to take away federal funds from the college that hosted the talk…a text book use of fascist power to police decent. These fuckers have got to be stopped.
Trump is so bad, George W. Bush’s daughter has come out against him. He is so bad house reps are changing parties to get away from him. There is a broad based coalition forming both in this country and around the world who think Trump is a crazy person, and must be stopped. He recently hung up on the Australian prime minister, and threatened to invade Mexico…what the actual fuck is going on in this mans head?
Trump is getting our soldiers killed by approving raids without sufficient intelligence. He still insists he is “like a smart person” so you doesn’t need to go to those briefings.
Leaked versions of Trumps next constitutional crisis in the making, will strip rights from LGBT people, and legalize discrimination on a broad scale….progress in human rights is not a one way street, if we allow this to happen we will slide backwards.
Steve Bannon sitting on the National Security Council is not only a bad idea its almost certainly illegal as well. Un-elected president Bannon is trying to destroy this country, and instead build one in his own racists bigoted mold.
More and more evidence is coming out linking trumps advisers and cabinet picks to Nazi’s and the Russians. As well as some evidence that Trump might have his hands on some of that Russian oil deal money…
Emboldened by Trump, republicans are already trying to get rid of regulation that keeps people from having coal mining waste in their drinking water. If you live in this area, is this really what you elected these people to do? To poison you and your children? It seems to me you might want to vote in a progressive next time.
Another judge has halted Trumps Muslim Ban, think he will listen this time? Or will he continue to order his
private army Homeland Security to violate the constitution?
America’s position on the international stage is sinking quickly, with some saying we no longer reflect our own values enough to be labeled the leader of the free world. If Trump is leader of the free world…maybe its time for someone else to take over. But this will affect American’s when the rest of the world stops looking to us for leadership everything here will get worse.
In a tacit admission that Senators votes are for sale a Philly teacher has launched a go fund me to buy Pat Toomey’s vote. While I appreciate the fact that this will highlight just how corrupt these assholes are, I would rather use all that money to pass a constitutional amendment to get money out of politics. If its about buying votes, the rich will always have more money than the poor.
Time To Join The Resistance!
It only takes 3.5% of the population to successfully topple a dictator with civil non-violent resistance. Get to reading folks, these instructions might not be theoretical much longer.
Our problem right now is that the Dem’s have the power to fight, but they simply wont. They are voting to approve Trumps cabinet or robber barons, they are rolling over and not doing nearly enough to stop him. Which means we have to stop these corporate Dems. We must call them and tell them that this will be the last term in office for them unless they change their stripes right now.
- Fight and vote against all trumps cabinet picks
- Block his supreme court pick, for years if necessary
- Stop taking corporate money and voting for big business over the people.
We will keep it simple, because I am starting to think that something in the DC water makes these people dumb as posts. Stop giving these “liberal” senators the benefit of the doubt, they are either voting in our interests or they are voting against our interests.
It doesn’t matter how much they (literally) cry on TV, or how many great speeches they give at rally’s, if they are voting to screw us over, we have to take the fight to them hard. The only thing that matters at the end of the day is if they vote right, fight hard, and stand up for us!
All their pomp and circumstance is just propaganda to get us to fall in line while big business and billionaires take over even more.
Cries on TV, goes on to vote for almost all trumps cabinet picks…
3 Democrats, and 1 independent have voted in favor of Rex (mother fucking) Tillerson as secretary as state. That’s right these assholes just sided with the republicans to make the CEO of Exxon our top diplomat. They must lose office.
Mark Warner (VA), Heidi Heitkamp (ND), Joe Manchin (WV) and Angus King (I-ME) They will be primary-ed, they will lose.
Part of this fight is to make sure we get a progressive running the DNC. The establishment wants to keep doing the exact same thing, the progressives want Keith Ellison. The same old got us Trump…
Hit them in the pocket book, call up advertisers and tell them you don’t want to see their products on right wing hate websites.
People in Seattle are trying to get the government to divest billions from Wells-Fargo for supporting the DAPL pipeline. Your town could do the same, call your mayor and let them know you want to divest government pensions from any company or bank that supports pipelines. You can do the same with your school, your company, your church, or any other group that has money invest in the market. People are still getting arrested at standing rock, this fight is not over!
Republican illegal redistricting plans are losing in court! The fight is not over however. Make sure you call up any republican that represents you and tell them you don’t want them suppressing votes and doing illegal redistricting to win. Tell them that if they can’t win on your ideas get out of politics.
It’s important to know how people did public action in the past so we can be more effective in the future by learning from them. This is an amazing story about how protests didn’t just march on Washington DC. They shut that mother fucker DOWN! We could easily do this again, the government must know we will not stand for the looting of the American heritage to enrich a couple corporate raiders.
It might be time for state organized resistance to the federal government, look to California for examples. All the rest of the blue states, the donor states, and any other state who believes in America should be doing this exact same thing. If you live in a very blue state, and you don’t see this sort of thing going on, time to call the governor and give them a piece of your mind!
Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it? Call your Senator, and your House Rep. or Governor, and tell them in no uncertain terms that you want them to fight to stop Trump from doing these things. Tell them you will be watching them closely on how they vote, and will hold them accountable during the next election if they cave to Trump.
Use this awesome website to call one of Trump’s many properties he has not put into a blind trust yet, and let them know how you feel (be polite, they are workers just like us, but be firm).
Keep track of how your senator is voting on cabinet picks here, so you can call them up and give them hell if they vote for any of these worthless fuckers.
