Trump Watch March 5 2018

Day 392:

Robber Barrons

Lets tear up national monuments for coal, then use shitty trade policy on solar, steal, and aluminum so we can cripple the solar and wind industry!

Real forward thinking…

If you want to see what the future of this country looks like, look to places like Russia. Oligarchs running the place like dictators, looting natural resources to gain even more money while the people are divided with stupid pointless social issues so that they never rise up and overthrow the robber barons. All while the earth warms, and the seas rise.

If you care at all about this sort of thing you had better be out voting for someone progressive (or at least sane) in the primaries. You CAN NOT sit this one out folks.

Tools of change:

Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it?

Calling your government representative:

Call your Senator
Call your House Rep (Or use this spreadsheet)
Call your Governor
Call your Attorney General
Or try this website
Fax Congress here (free!)

You can also use 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:

Send Some Text Messages for progressive causes (I know it says textforbernie, but its for a range of progressive candidates) Or you can have your texts turned into faxes by the ResistBot

Go to a town hall and talk to your congress person in person:

Check when the next town hall is here

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.

See how your elected representatives are voting for or against Trump.


Also be sure to keep track if you live in a district with an upcoming flip-able seat (flip to the left that is)

See if you have a special election in your area!

Is your mayor up for election? Find out, get involved!

One thought on “Trump Watch March 5 2018”

  1. As an armchair keyboard warrior, my first thought is this guy wasn”t hired as a janitor or grounds keeper, he was a trained, armed, deputy, assigned to school security, who should have known every square inch of the property What would I have done? simple, I would have charged in an engaged or win the Darwin award trying. When people talk about AR rifles, I”m reminded of the FBI murders in the mid eighties, that was where agents knew armored car/bank robbers, robbed and killed people senselessly, the robbers were known to be heavily armed, automatic rifles,shotguns,44 mag pistols, the FBI unwisely chose to be armed with things like a 5 shot 38 air weight, 9mm, 12 gauge shot gun ,one agent had a rifle in the trunk of his car. My point is, if the weapon of choice in these shootings is an AR you need at least that or better and a plan to deploy it. Or do like a bunch of real A-hos I saw on TV the other night and blame the NRA, I sent them a check and you should too.
