‘The most ill-informed, under-prepared, ethically challenged, and psychologically ill-equipped president in US history’ I would say former foreign minister Gareth Evans from Australia sums it up nicely. This is how the entire world is viewing Trump right now, and its having a very real affect on our allies confidence in us as a nation. Trump is an embarrassment that is destroying more than just our reputation, his is eroding the strength of our nation from the inside.
Watchdog Claims They Have Evidence Bannon Was Illegally Paid as Trump’s Campaign Chair. while at the same time it seems that Trump managed to violate even our lax money in politics laws. Does this surprise anyone? No. Is this yet one more reason to Impeach? You bet it is.
Trump just made it a lot easier for private companies to drill for oil in national parks...happy 100th birthday national parks!
Racist asshole Jeff Sessions can’t figure out why people are upset about his views on drugs. Could it be that he only wants to throw black people into private prisons for low level weed charges, and doesn’t actually care about helping people with actual drug problems?
Ex-MI6 chief accuses Donald Trump of secretly borrowing from Russia to keep his property empire afloat during the financial crisis. I have been telling anyone who will listen that this is the real connection to Russia. Trump isn’t a Manchurian candidate he is a horrible con man who is up to his eyes in debt.
Trump Says He May Freeze Subsidies to the Poor Until Democrats Repeal Obamacare. If Obamacare wont die on its own, hold a pillow over its head until it does, is basically the republican strategy at this point. Their own health care bill which they had 7 years to work on, was so bad it couldn’t even make it out of the house, so they do this instead.
Congress person from North Carolina, Larry Pitmann, just said Abraham Lincoln was a tyrant like Hitler. He did so while defending his bill that would outlaw gay marriage. Can we please kick this asshole out of office? He is up for re-election next year, surely someone less racist than him could run against him.
Trump wants to make protesting a felony with 10 years of prison time. Dictator 101.
Upcoming Action Against Trump:
Lets get these people elected!
Could we really get him to pull a 180 and go for medicare for all? Maybe he doesn’t seem to have any particular policy on anything, going where the winds blow, doing whatever makes him most popular in the public eye. If we can convince him that the only way the american people will love him is to pass “real health care” he might go for it…
He gave her every chance in the world to just say what the dems stand for….and every single time it was like you were asking a turtle to do long division….maddening.
If I run up to any democrat in congress and scream “tag your it, quick tell me what you stand for!” Here is what I want to hear.
“single payer health care, 15 minimum wage, strong environmental regulation, tax increases on the rich, regulation of corporations, union support, money out of politics, pay equity for women, civil rights for all, free college for poor people, moving to 100% renewable energy”
It should fly out of their mouth like they were vomiting. And every day when I read the news I should see that they are introducing bills to do just this into congress, daily, weekly, and monthly.
I want to see them standing in front of crowds fighting for this, I want to see them marching in the streets holding signs with these slogans on them, I want to see them voting in line with these ideals.
It’s not about improving messaging, its about the god damn message!

Tools of change:
Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it?
Calling your government representative:
You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.
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.
Phone Bank for Progressive Candidates:
Call the White House:
Call the “White House”:
Use this 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).
Do a little Slacktivism:
Go to a town hall and talk to your congress person in person:
Monitor your congressperson:
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.
Also be sure to keep track if you live in a district with an upcoming flip-able seat (flip to the left that is)
