Twenty Days…it feels like a life time.
Things Trump Messed Up Today:
Betsy DeVos, the most unqualified secretary of education ever, has been approved, by a party line vote, all the Dem’s resisted, in a historic first, the vice president had to break a tie. She purchased her cabinet position with 100’s of millions of dollars, she wants to destroy public school, and she wants to put Jesus back into the classroom. Did your senator vote for this horrible pick? If so you should call them up and promise to vote them out of office, they don’t care about you, don’t care about your children, and have been purchased. They no longer represent you, and you should vote them out, but first call them up and let them know you will be voting them out. PS. They just introduced a bill to get rid of the department of education.
Spicer keeps making up facts, aka telling lies. This time its another fake terrorist attack.
The republicans are so scared of Elizabeth Warren reading a letter from MLK’s Wife that they voted to silence her…this is unprecedented, and cowardly. It didn’t work however, because here she is telling truth to power.
She then spent all day talking on tv shows rubbing republican noses in their cowardliness. Note to other senators, this is what you should be doing, every day, every night.
Here is the full test of the letter:
Dear Senator Thurmond:
I write to express my sincere opposition to the confirmation of Jefferson B. Sessions as a federal district court judge for the Southern District of Alabama. My professional and personal roots in Alabama are deep and lasting. Anyone who has used the power of his office as United States Attorney to intimidate and chill the free exercise of the ballot by citizens should not be elevated to our courts. Mr. Sessions has used the awesome powers of his office in a shabby attempt to intimidate and frighten elderly black voters. For this reprehensible conduct, he should not be rewarded with a federal judgeship.
I regret that a long-standing commitment prevents me from appearing in person to testify against this nominee. However, I have attached a copy of my statement opposing Mr. Sessions’ confirmation and I request that my statement as well as this be made a part of the hearing record.
I do sincerely urge you to oppose the confirmation of Mr. Sessions.

Trump continues to siphon tax payer money from you, into his own pocket. He is now renting the military space in his private building…
Trump will lie to you to get what he wants, we all know that. So when he says that the murder rate is the highest its been in 47 years (a blatant lie) you have to ask yourself, why is he saying that? Is it because he wants increased police powers? Does he want to help his buddies in the private prison industry, does he want to disenfranchise more young black men, maybe all three? Maybe he will just make it so those agencies don’t track that data anymore, then he can say whatever he wants…this is not good.
The Resistance Will Not Rest!
Starts at 7:25, pardon the idiot rambling at the start. Bernie is still out there fighting in a very public way!
The movement to impeach Trump continue to grow. 650,000 strong so far.
53% of republicans don’t know what repealing “Obama care” means. It means getting ride of their medicaid health insurance. Tell everyone you know the truth of this fact.
Trump has historical disapproval ratings. He is a creature of ego, lets make sure everyone knows that no one likes him.
Under Armour CEO supports Trump, Lets make sure we don’t support Under Armour. Tweet at them, facebook at them, call them, stop buying their shitty products.
Trump claims he hasn’t gotten any calls about DAPL…could it be that he has shut down the white house comment line? Lets call him anyway. Call him here, or call your senator and rep or Governor and tell them to talk to trump. Don’t think he will stop at DAPL, he has ties to other pipelines in the works.
Tools of change:
Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it? Call your Senator, and your House Rep. or your Governor, (or try this website) 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. You can also call other states congress people and threaten to donate to their opponent if they don’t do what you want.
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). You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.
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.
