This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 70

Trump Watch:

All issues pale in comparison to the climate.  With a healthy stable climate we will have hundreds of thousands of years to figure out all our other problems.  Without a healthy stable climate, the entire civilization of humanity is doomed.  Trump has ordered the Energy Department Climate office to no longer use the words “climate change” and pressured a bunch more public agencies to do the same.  His solution to climate change, put his fingers in his ears, then put his head up his ass.

Bernie sanders says everything I want to hear in this interview, he is dropping truth bombs so hard that the earth shakes.

 

THIS IS MADNESS!  If Trump went on tv and said “I am going to kill 2/3rds of your children next week” There would be an obvious uproar, and the entire country would kick him out of office so fast his head would spin.   Well when he says climate change is a hoax, and that he is going to do nothing about it, just remember what he is really saying is “I am going to kill by neglect millions perhaps billions of people in the future.”

Trump’s EPA Just Greenlighted a Pesticide Known to Damage Kids’ Brains

The science of global warming is real, and its as serious as death.  WE MUST STOP HIM.  Call your senator, call your rep, call your governor.  DEMAND action on climate.  Demand they push back on Trumps agenda, DEMAND a future for you and your children.

—————

But if you don’t care about the future of humanity, there is still plenty of shit about Russia going on.  It is pretty clear at this point that Trump is in bed with Russia, and he is doing so for reasons of money.  Can we just impeach his dumb ass already?

—————

Because A: Trump is too stupid to do the job on his own, and B: Nepotism is fun.  Ivanka Trump is going to be a federal employee now.

—————-

Trump is going to destroy the EPA by a death by a thousand cuts.  Keep a list of how your rep is voting, make sure to hold them accountable, they need to hear from you.

FDR faced opposition in the party over the New Deal, including from his own VP John Nance Garner, who he decided to drop from the ticket before running for a third term in favor of more liberal Henry Wallace.

Upon witnessing Dems at the convention try to block Henry Wallace’s nomination as VP, he drafted this letter turning down the nomination.  It was never sent.

July 18, 1940

Members of the Convention:

In the century in which we live, the Democratic Party has received the support of the electorate only when the party, with absolute clarity, has been the champion of progressive and liberal policies and principles of government.

The party has failed consistently when through political trading and chicanery it has fallen into the control of those interests, personal and financial, which think in terms of dollars instead of in terms of human values.

The Republican Party has made its nominations this year at the dictation of those who, we all know, always place money ahead of human progress.

The Democratic Convention, as appears clear from the events of today, is divided on this fundamental issue. Until the Democratic Party through this convention makes overwhelmingly clear its stand in favor of social progress and liberalism, and shakes off all the shackles of control fastened upon it by the forces of conservatism, reaction, and appeasement, it will not continue its march of victory.

It is without question that certain political influences pledged to reaction in domestic affairs and to appeasement in foreign affairs have been busily engaged behind the scenes in the promotion of discord since this Convention convened.

Under these circumstances, I cannot, in all honor, and will not, merely for political expediency, go along with the cheap bargaining and political maneuvering which have brought about party dissension in this convention.

It is best not to straddle ideals.

In these days of danger when democracy must be more than vigilant, there can be no connivance with the kind of politics which has internally weakened nations abroad before the enemy has struck from without.

It is best for America to have the fight out here and now.

I wish to give the Democratic Party the opportunity to make its historic decision clearly and without equivocation. The party must go wholly one way or wholly the other. It cannot face in both directions at the same time.

By declining the honor of the nomination for the presidency, I can restore that opportunity to the convention. I so do.

FDR knew what was up….maybe we should send copies of this to every democrat in government.

Trump Watch:

The republicans in the house and the senate have just voted to allow large internet companies to sell your browsing datato basically anyone they want.  They also no longer have to tell you if they have been hacked.  So now your data is as good as public, either because they are just going to sell it to any advertiser, government, or rich pervert they want.  Or someone will just take it, and they wont have to tell you that it has been taken, you will probably find out when the credit card bills arrive for things you didn’t buy.

House of Representatives votes 232-184 to do away with Broadband Privacy. If your Rep. voted for this bill, it is time to let him or her know that they lost your vote.

The 265 members of Congress who sold you out to ISPs, and how much it cost to buy them 

Every single congress person who voted for this bill is sending a message to you. (Senate, House, it was all republican by the way) That message is “FUCK YOU!”  If you are not their big money donors, they could give a single fuck about you.  So why don’t we try to vote them all out of office.  See how they like that?

In ‘Apprentice’ defamation case, Trump will argue he is immune from lawsuits in state courts until he leaves office.  You’re the president, not the dictator, you don’t become immune from justice until you are out of office.  If this sort of reasoning stands we have just elected our first king.

The Resistance!:

BERNIE!  You can’t just resist, you have to fight back!  You can’t fight something with nothing, you must have your own agenda that you are pushing.

BEYOND RESISTANCE: A PEOPLE’S MOVEMENT FOR A JUST WORLD

Sen. Bernie Sanders will keynote a major gathering of several thousand progressive activists from across the U.S. in Chicago June 9 to 11 under a thematic of moving beyond resistance to a building a broad people’s movement for a just world.

The event will be the second People’s Summit following a coming together of 3,000 people, activists and members of leading progressive organizations, last June who also met in Chicago on a pledge to build the progressive movement through and beyond the November, 2016 election.

What: People’s Summit 2.0 “Beyond Resistance: A People’s Movement for a Just World”
When: June 9 through June 11
Where: Chicago, McCormick Place

How to Get Involved: Via http://www.thepeoplessummit.org or info@thepeoplessummit.org Twitter: @pplsummit

Many of those in Chicago last June have played leading roles in public actions and protests this year, but the supporting organizations are unified in calling for defining a progressive vision that beyond resistance and protests.

Tentative participants:

  • Sen. Bernie Sanders
  • Jane Sanders, educator
  • Eve Ensler, playwright, activist
  • Frances Fisher, actress
  • Josh Fox, filmmaker
  • Danny Glover, actor
  • Van Jones, CNN commentator
  • Shaun King, journalist
  • Naomi Klein, author
  • Nomiki Konst, journalist
  • Bill McKibben, activist
  • Michael Moore, filmmaker
  • Frances Fox Piven, educator
  • Linda Sarsour, activist
  • David Sirota, journalist
  • Nina Turner, former Ohio State Senator

This year’s program will feature concrete steps for further progressive movement building, including candidate training, independent political action, civil disobedience, educational workshops, and unity in mass actions.

Convening organizations  include National Nurses United, People’s Action, United Students Against Sweatshops, People for Bernie, Our Revolution, United Electrical Workers, Color of Change, Progressive Democrats of America, and Democratic Socialists of America, and Presente.

More information, including how to register for the event, is available at the People’s Summit website,  http://www.thepeoplessummit.org/.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ABOUT THE PEOPLE’S SUMMIT 2.0

“What has consistently unified us is a common vision of opposition to policies of austerity and neo-liberalism, and solidarity in supporting each others’ work on health care, environmental, racial, social, and economic justice, and breaking the corporate grip on our political and economic system” –RoseAnn DeMoro, executive director, National Nurses United, a major convener of the event.

“I am excited to join the chorus of conscious, committed voices at the 2017 People’s Summit. There is no force more powerful than a community on the move for justice. We will protest, we will plan and we will preserve in the building of political power from the ground up. This is our moment” – former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner

“With our institutions of liberal democracy severely eroded and fascism knocking at our front doors, the time is now for activists, organizers, and Berniecrats to come together and imagine an America and world that looks far beyond the horizon of establishment politics as usual” – Winnie Wong, People For Bernie

“As a student-led labor solidarity movement, United Students Against Sweatshops recognizes the importance of political and economic power for workers on our campuses, in our communities, and within our government. Students are proud to be a part of this courageous movement to continue building power for working people” – Troy Neves, United Students Against Sweatshops

“The current political climate is threatening the very fabric of our democracy. Fundamental rights like access to healthcare and the protection of our air and water are under attack. Ensuring a just future for America will require a broad, resilient grassroots movement that puts people over corporate profits. This is what the People’s Summit will work to support” – Wenonah Hauter, executive director, Food and Water Watch

“The People’s Summit brought the fledgling people’s movement together last June, and that was transformative. The opportunity to engage proactively with others who believe in social justice, climate sanity, peace and equality gave us tremendous lift and focus during a period when that was essential. Silos crumbled, new alliances were forged.  We are ready for more at PS 2017” – Donna Smith, executive director, Progressive Democrats of America

“President Trump exploited long-standing racial divisions between working people to gain power, when we know he’s packed his cabinet with the same characters who rigged the economy. We all need to team up and fight back, and pro-corporate Democrats aren’t doing that effectively. The People’s Summit helps us make the alliances we need against capitalism at its worst” – Maria Svart, national director, Democratic Socialists of America.

“A radical, racist right wing that cares more about profit than people or our planet is in power in Washington and most of our state capitals. We have joined millions of Americans in resistance, from congressional town halls to airport protests to shareholder meetings of corporations like Disney that have abetted and are complicit in this right wing’s rise. But with our allies in the 2017 People’s Summit we are moving beyond resistance to a political revolution; from protest to power. We will advance a new movement politics that will recruit, elect and co-govern with a slate of candidates who will put people and our planet before profit.” — George Goehl, co-director, People’s Action

“The people need to get together so the people need a summit! We all know that progressive positions are actually the most popular political positions in America. The Peoples Summit gives us a chance to come together, understand our strength, rally, and make plans for the future” – Josh Fox, filmmaker

“What do you get when you bring real progressives, women of color, and young organizers together under one roof? The People’s Summit – a gathering of the some of the most powerful leaders of the resistance. Looking forward to building and scheming towards justice and equality for all Americans.” – Linda Sarsour, activist

“We don’t have time to please donors and discuss 20 year plans. We don’t have time to play politics to please special interests. Our democracy is at stake and the only ones who can reclaim it are we, the People. The People’s Summit is where we build our blueprint and action plan to save our Republic. You can’t buy back democracy, you have to fight for it.” – Nomiki Konst, journalist

“In the face of one of the most fascist, racist, women hating, worker oppressing, earth destroying, anti-life regimes, the gates have come down. We are angry, we are united, we are ready and we know our time has come. Now we just need to create the new progressive vision, tactics and plan – the Peoples Summit has all the right people, energy  and ingredients to make that happen.” – Eve Ensler, playwright, activist

Trump Watch:

The government still seems to be consumed with nothing but Russia talk, even though Trump is busy fucking over most of the country with his executive orders, his deregulation, corruption, self dealing, and basic neglect.  Democrats only want to talk about Russia because then they don’t have to talk about how they don’t represent the people anymore and why they keep loosing elections.  Republicans are ok with talking about Russia, because they don’t give a fuck about anyone but their donors, and its a good lever to get Trump to do what they want, incidentally it also keeps the spotlight off there horrible other corruption and behavior.

Bread and circuses, both parties are pretty well bought and paid for by big money.  Lets start by kicking out as many corporate dem’s as we can, then building up a large progressive base, impeach trump, and then enact a new new deal.

There are massive protests in Russia right now, and Putin is cracking down horribly on them.  Trump has remained silent.  We know he has his twitter ready at all times, but instead many many hours later we get a statement from the state department.  Stay classy Trump, you spineless coward.  A timeline of events that unfolded during the election appears to support the FBI’s investigation into Trump-Russia collusion

Tools of change:

Calling your government representative:

Or try this website
Fax Congress here (free!)

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.

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)
