This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 33

Trump’s Terrible Tuesday:

Trumps economic promises are lies.  He is actually going to destroy the economy, not make it better.  Any gains will go to the super rich, while the rest of us suffer.

————-

Trump is preparing executive orders to allow his big business buddies to pollute your air and water.  This will give someone in america cancer, and will lead to the deaths of some more American’s.  Will you be that person?  Will it be your child?  Regulation has a purpose, and in this case the regulation is to keep you safe and healthy.  If there are any Trump supporters reading this, do you think the health of you and your loved ones is less important than the profit margins of a large company?

————-

Trump spends the time he is not watching Fox news, golfing.  Seems he has gone a week without a security briefing.  He doesn’t take this job seriously.

————–

Trump is using the American Tax payer as his personal bank account.  Spending more in a month, than Obama spent in a year.  He is not a king, he can’t just waste our money.

——————

Big oil is fighting back against electric cars, spending millions to punish electric car drivers in a desperate attempt to hold onto their gas profits.  So free markets work, until they put you out of business for being old news….seems capitalism is really more about the super rich rigging the rules to keep their profits secure.  You should be calling your state reps and senators about this if you are a lefty who cares about the earth, or on the right who cares about free markets.

———-

Trump had a plan to give Ukraine to Russia, and lift sanctions on them…you don’t think he is working for them?

—————

 

 

The Resistance!

Science March! April 22nd!

Women’s General Strike March 8th! (international Women’s day)

—————–

Trump supporters seem to live in a different world.  They don’t understand why the rest of us don’t like him.  If you know a Trump supporter, reach out to them, talk to them.  Make sure they know you don’t like Trump, but that you are fighting him because you do like them.  We fight against Trump because the world can be a better place, and we are the ones who are going to help it get there.

—————-

Hey look, journalists, doing journalism.  Way to go NPR.  Maybe the rest of the industry will get jealous of all the good stories you dig up and start doing real journalism again.

—————-

Bernie is still out there fighting!

—————

Members of all parties in the UK don’t want Trump to visit.  They mostly site that he is a horrible cunt, and that he can piss right off with that shit.  If you don’t live in America and you want to fight against Trump, call up your elected officials and tell them you don’t want them to support Trump.  March in the streets, and vote with your dollars, don’t buy anything from Trump, or his cronies.

—————

Thousands march in “not my” Presidents day marches.

—————–

The Electoral College is not long for this world, if you want your state to get rid of this crazy system (which has elected George W. and Trump…)  Call your senator and tell them to join in  the intrastate compact to remove the electoral college.

—————–

Here’s the thing right wingers never get.  You have the right to free speech, but you don’t have the right to avoid the consequences of saying horrible shit.  You can go on TV and say any nasty thing you want about anyone, but don’t be surprised when you lose your book deal, and no one wants to have you on their TV show anymore.  You CAN say anything you want, but SHOULD you?

—————-

Anti-pipeline protests are springing up everywhere, join your local anti-pipeline protest now!

Things Trump Messed Up Today:

In case you are wondering what Trump is trying to do, just look to Putin.  Putin has accumulated MASSIVE wealth through his corruption.(200!!! Billion)  Trump wants to be just like Putin.  This is all about the money.  

———

Trump wants to kill sesame street.  And the rest of PBS.  Including funding for arts…because why not.  It’s almost 0% of the federal budget, does a lot of good, and for some reason Trump wants to kill it…

—————

Now that Trump is president all the super creeps feel they can publicly say whatever horrible thing is on their mind.  This Utah politician thinks women shouldn’t be paid the same as men…because he thinks its bad for families.  We have to vote these people out of office, as its the only want to let them know that we wont normalize these kinds of things.

————–

Trump gets all his news from TV.  Specifically Fox news.  This basically means that Trump’s reality is based on whatever Fox puts on the news.  Just think about that for a while.

—————-

Flynn might only be the start, this administration could be rotten to the core.

—————

Trump is firing anyone who disagrees with him, meaning that the echo chamber of his madness will only grow.  There are no brakes on this crazy train.

————–

Trump is destroying the local business around the “winter white house.”  The locals are none too happy about it.

————-

The state of the world is getting more precarious, Trump’s failure to lead is going to cause many deaths.

The Resistance!

Trump Impeachment Rally In Atlanta On Today!

—————

Here is a good basic overview on how the impeachment process works.  Good to know because I am pretty sure we will need this soon.

——————

Even Fox news is getting a little uncomfortable with Trump’s anti-media screeds.   They are not alone, weak willed corporate news outlets are starting to realize its time to put principle over profit and stand up and fight.  I still don’t recommend you watch these piece of shit news outlets, but its good to see them stand up a little.

————–

Boston had a rally for science this weekend!  Just look at all those nerds out there fighting for freedom.  More pictures here.

—————-

A group of Anti-Trump people in the UK are aiming to have the largest Protest the UK has ever seen when Trump visits.  The entire world is rising up against Trump.

Rep. Tom Reed Town Hall

We're at a town hall discussion led by Rep. Tom Reed, a Republican congressman in New York. Leave your questions in the comments, and NYT reporter Nilo Tabrizy will ask some.

Posted by NYT Politics on Saturday, February 18, 2017

More, more of this.

—————

Kicking out the corporate democrats is a top priority.  We need strong democratic leaders that will revitalize support for the party.

————–

We don’t need to just resist, we can attack!  Make these assholes have to go on TV and tell the American people why they are not going to do things that are good for the average people in this country.

Sunday, rest, recuperate, resist!

Things Trump Ruined Today:

Trump is such an ego maniac, and ironically is also so fragile, that he is having a re-election rally only a month into office…  This is very strange.  It seems he only likes the parts of the job where people cheer for him, and not the parts of the job where he has to, you know, work.  He just couldn’t help himself, he still had to lie at the rally.   If he doesn’t want the job, lets impeach him and he can be very popular in prison.

This is terrifying,  for a lot of reasons.  He is clearly not up to the job, he has already re-started his election campaign, so I bet he starts taking donations for that soon.  This is a corruption sandwich.  Please call your house rep and urge them to impeach Trump.

—————-

Trump is doing alright by rich people though…Giving them lots of tax breaks while the rest of us suffer.

————–

Trump has begun expanding the categories of immigrants he will kick out of the country…

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

—————

The super rich always get around to thinking they know better than everyone else…their mega wealth is never as impressive as they make it seem, they get lucky, they have good things happen to them, and they think they are somehow better than everyone else.  Facebook CEO and massive data miner Mark Zuckerberg thinks he is going to be the next president…he even released a manifesto.  Its kind of a mess.

———–

The Trump family is costing US Tax payers in a month what Obama’s did in a year.  Remember when trump used to complain about how many vacations Obama was taking, and how much he used airforce one…

————

Trump is waging a war on truth, not on the media.  Bernie gets it.

———–

The earth continues to warm, Trump continues to ignore climate change.  This will kill you, your children, or their children.  Its just a matter of time before someone you know dies in a storm, a flood, a heat wave, catches a tropical illness, or some other climate disaster.  And if you are very lucky, then only the poor and down trodden of the earth will be killed, and your family will be spared…does that comfort you?  Demand action to stop climate change now!

————

Could Trump accidentally stop one of the worst parts of the “war on drugs”?  I doubt it, but maybe we will get lucky.  More likely this will lead to something even worse, Trump has a track record of fucking things up.

———–

People are waking up, now we have to get them moving.  March in the streets, vote, call your congress person, resist!

Want to know just how awake people are…CNN is going to hold a debate for DNC chair…its a whole new political landscape out there.

——————-

Extreme inequality causes economic collapse.  Making the poor richer is actually good for the economy.  Call your congress person and demand a $15 federal minimum wage.

—————

Bernie and Elizabeth can not be the only ones fighting back.  Call your senator and demand they fight trump.  Tell them to continue to oppose all of his cabinet picks.  We must be ready to turn this crisis into revolution!

———–

We must stop the corporate democrats.  If you live in Baltimore, you have to vote these assholes out.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 30

Day 30, morale is low….we will have to eat the horses soon…I am not sure the men will continue, may god have mercy on us all.

 

Trump’s Daily Fuckups:

Secret President Bannon is the part of humanity you would scrap off your shoe.  This is who is making policy, filling Trumps empty head.

————–

Trump thinks the media is the enemy of the people…this is classic dictator shit, discredit the media, like about everything, make it so the people wont trust anything.  This is not a new trick, dictators, and despots have run this play book for years.  Its just a shock to most American’s that we have one here.  He will only win if we stay complicit.  RESIST!

————–

The pick to replace Flynn as security adviser has dropped out after seeing how crazy Trump press conference is.

————–

There was a lot of (valid in some cases) talk about how careless Hillary was with her emails, so it should come as a great worry to many Trump supporters that he is just bringing random guests to his hotel to cabinet meetings…if you are not a Trump supporter, you will also be able to admit that this is insane and shows Trump can not be trusted.

————–

Even the Republicans are admitting that Trump is a mess, and not just to themselves, to foreign leaders as well.  But be careful, they are not above a little ideological purging.  I hope this guy sues them right to the bank.

————–

More and more people are asking for Trump to be evaluated for mental illness.  I would say he is actually just a huge asshole, but I am not a professional.

—————

Trump is the epitome of the Con-Man, literally every single thing he says is a con and a lie.  If you voted for him thinking he would care about you, you were wrong.  He only cares about himself, and he will walk over a mile of your dead relatives, if it means he can make a buck on the other side.

He certainly doesn’t care about giving jobs to Americans, as he keeps requesting foreign workers at his companies (which he still hasn’t put into a blind trust)

He will poison your water, because his rich friends want him to.  Or because they gave him money.  Your life is not as important as their profits. 

—————

Big business (the Koch Brothers) want to dismantle health care, for no other reason than they resent having to help anyone, no matter how small a percentage of their weather it would take to do so.

—————-

Trump still hasn’t released his taxes.

—————-

RESIST!  FIGHT! LOVE!  WIN!

Women’s General Strike March 8th! (international Women’s day)

Trump Impeachment Rally In Atlanta On Monday!

—————–

At least somebody is awake in the democratic party…they are starting to get creative.  Hopefully they will be able to find a law on the books that will force Trump to be more transparent.  Corruption is running wild in this government and it must be stopped.

—————-

Trump is taking bribes from foreign governments, clearly this is enough to impeach him now?  Call your House Rep and demand they start drawing up impeachment papers.

————-

The resistance starts at the states, California looks to be leading the way, they just introduced a bill for a universal health care system!  If you live in California call up your senators and reps and tell them to support this!  Support your house rep in removing illegal Gerrymandered districts!

—————

Feeling like you want to do something?  Have a lot of built up energy?!  Go protest!  There is probably a protest near you right now!  

—————-

It’s time to get rid of corporate democrats, who only care about money and the rich.

————-

It’s working!  Show up at town halls, make these people hear your voice!

————

Make sure you vote in your local elections!  Especially if your election is close, and can be flipped to the left.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 29

Almost to day 30 and no impeachment.  I am almost proud of Trump, except I am not, not at all.

Things Trump Did Wrong:

Trump has lost his mind…not figuratively.  Pretty much everyone else thinks so as well.  If you had any doubts about Trumps tenuous grasp on reality, or that he is deeply unfit for this job, just watch his own rambling crazy town speech above.  His current approval ratings are at 39%…a historic low at this point in a new presidents term.

Are the republicans in the house paying attention?  They are supporting a man whose policies are political and corporate poison.  If you support him, you will lose your next election (that goes for you too corporate democrats).  Your safest bet is to impeach the lot of them now, you know they are all crooked, so why are you waiting?  Why are you putting your own political life in jeopardy?  Or right because you’re all a bunch of craven corporate shills.  This might have gone over during Obama when everyone had their head in the sand, but Trump has woken people up, and they are fighting back now.

—————–

Trump is going to try a second crack at that Muslim ban.  He hopes this one will make it past the judges.  But that hasn’t stopped him from rounding up people and deporting them already.

—————

Trump has not had any security briefings since Flynn resigned.  My guess is he is too preoccupied with what people say about him on TV to be interested in the security of America.  The person he tapped to replace Flynn said (and I am paraphrasing)  “Hell no!”  He actually said something about Trump’s White House being a “shit sandwich.”  No joke…leave it to an ex-marine to be a straight shooter.

The last president who consistantly ignored security briefings was George W.  Which is why 9/11 happened…

—————

Trump STILL hasn’t released his taxes.  He really should.

Senator Warren Giving A Speech on the Nomination of Scott Pruitt

A few hours ago, a judge in Oklahoma ordered the release of thousands of emails about EPA nominee Scott Pruitt’s relationship with Big Oil. Republicans must be worried about what’s in those emails, because they’re jamming through his nomination tomorrow – just FOUR DAYS before the emails will be released! Those emails may show corruption – but we already know that Scott Pruitt always sides with the corporate polluters and has no business as head of the Environmental Protection Agency. I’m speaking on the Senate floor now to strongly oppose his nomination and to share the stories of Massachusetts residents who are worried about what his nomination means for our environment and our families.

Posted by U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren on Thursday, February 16, 2017

Its 99 degrees in Oklahoma in Feb, the arctic is 50 degrees above normal, and Manhattan sized chunks of ice are breaking off Antarctica.  Trump is trying to appoint a climate denier as head the EPA, and thinks global warming is a hoax made up by China.  Laugh all you want about how stupid he is, this ignoring of climate change will kill hundreds of millions of people, maybe even you.

————–

Betsy DeVos’s brother is setting up a private army for China?  Where does trump find these people?

—————-

Tom Perez the establishment candidate for DNC chair, STILL supports the TPP, even after Hillary was against it.  Lets make sure he doesn’t win.

—————–

We can’t allow the Deep state to destroy Trump, it has to be the American people who destroy Trump, then we clean out the military/industrial/spy complex, the corporate democrats, and rebuild this country for the working person.  Russia is not the enemy.  Greedy Trump and his billionaire cronies are the problem.

————–

Trump doesn’t give a shit about Palestine. 

————–

Gerrymandering must be stopped, call your senator and tell them you demand fair districts.

THE RESISTANCE!

As Trump moves to make social security weaker, Bernie fights on!  Call your senator and make them support Bernie’s bill.

California is trying to make election day a holiday!   More voters voting is the good!
