This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 89

Trump Watch:

Sean Spicer: Lobbyists Deserve Privacy When Visiting the White House.  In case you didn’t understand who the administration thinks they work for.  Its the big money, not you.

Trump has spent one out of every five minutes of his presidency in Palm Beach

———————-

Spicer: Trump won’t release taxes because of audit.  Trump also thinks you’re a bunch of idiots, and wont release his taxes because it proves he is a criminal.

Paul Manafort is reportedly helping a Chinese billionaire navigate how to profit off of Trump’s infrastructure plan

Trump claims immunity as President in lawsuit.  Isn’t this the same excuse Nixon used?

———————–

Voting machines stolen pre-Georgia special election: report.  The GOP seems to be getting desperate in Georgia…could it be that Bernie Sanders style democratic campaigns are actually showing that they can challenge DEEP red districts…I think it is.

———————-

Trump called Turkey’s Erdogan to congratulate him on referendum win: Turkish sources.  Is he too stupid to understand that what is happening in Turkey is a political coup from a dictator?  Or is he trying to join the club?

———————–

Melania Trump hosted a private Easter Egg Roll exclusively for the rich and powerful.  All hail our new royalty, the rich.

Trump is making the GOP (more) unpopular.

The Republican Party has almost nothing to offer the average voter. Large majorities of Americans believe that abortion should be legal in most cases; taxes on the rich should not be cut; undocumented immigrants should be given a path to legalization; the environment should be prioritized over energy production; and the government should spend more money on Medicaid.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 88

Trump Watch:

Massive marches across the country demanding to see Donald Trumps taxes…what does he say.  That the protesters were being paid.  It’s clear at this point that Trump’s taxes contain evidence of crimes, corruption, and ties to Russia.  Someone at the IRS leak that shit, its your duty as a good patriot.

Trump is already using his 2020 reelection bid to line his own pockets

Trump Has Already Spent $500,000 In Re-election Funds On His Own Businesses

Recent polls show 74 per cent of Americans want Mr Trump to release his tax returns.

Trump Calls for Investigation Into Tax Day Protesters, Tweets ‘Election Is Over!’

Donald Trump borrowed money from Russia in 2008, claims ex-MI6 boss

Trump asks why people are still talking about his taxes a day after protesters asked for his returns, this man is profoundly stupid.

Leaks Between Trump Team And Russia Continue To Come Out

——————–

In the face of cuts for the needy, Trump’s $3M trips are appalling.  We can’t have meals on wheels, but we can inflate the military budget by billions and Trump can spend hundreds of millions on enriching himself while golfing.  Long live the king I guess.

———————

ICE immigration arrests of noncriminals double under Trump

——————–

Paul Ryan spent his recess fundraising, and avoided holding a single town hall.  Lets vote him out of office, so that he can have all the time in the world to avoid talking to voters, something he seems to enjoy.

Two Republican lawmakers face anger, from their own voters, on health care

———————–

Kathryn Allen is gaining steam in her bid to unseat professional idiot Jason Chaffetz.  She is out raising him, has better ideas than him, and in general would make a much better representative, lets give her a hand!

——————-

There is no such thing as clean coal, fracking is a disaster, and oil is the same old thing we have been fighting wars over for years.  All three spell doom for the future of humanity on this planet, but there is good news, we don’t need any fossil fuels.   Solar and wind are so cheap that you should really be out there installing it on your home right now.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 84

Trump Watch:

‘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.

In a historic first the president is going to purposely shutdown the government: Trump threatens a government shutdown if he doesn’t get his way with Congress that his own party controls

Trump: “We’ve just launched 59 missiles heading to Iraq…” Someone needs to hand him a map and ask ‘Which country did you bomb? Point to it.’

Trump on North Korea: “after listening for 10 minutes, I realized it’s not so easy”

Donald Trump recounts eating “the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake” with Xi Jinping while launching missiles “heading to Iraq”

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.

Donald Trump Is Still Annoyed That Everyone Thinks Steve Bannon Is the Real President

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?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Is Using His Job to Purge America of People Who Don’t Look Like Him

FBI says Jeff Sessions’ pick for Trump team was an alleged Russian agent

—————————

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.

Drip Drip Drip, the Russia story just wont go away.

—————————

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.

Trump Reverses Himself On 6 Major Issues In 2 Days.

Trump flips on four policies in one day

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!

Calling your government representative:

You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.

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.

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)
