Day 167:

You thought it would get better, It hasn’t:

Just because you were on vacation for a couple of days doesn’t mean that the evil fuckers in Washington are not back and at it as hard as ever.

Even though we are in dark days, I still see some shining bright hope.  Elizabeth Warren has started to beat the drum for single payer, and others are joining her.  The fight for a living wage is still going strong, the war on drugs is faltering, and all around signs of resistance are growing.  The latest being the fact that nearly every state has refused to comply with Trumps “voter fraud” commission, which is really just a voter suppression effort.

Just remember things are impossible until they happen, this cartoon supervillian in the white house might be just the thing we need to galvanize the US people into political action.  Politicians like Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders will be vital in making sure that action is funneled into peaceful meaningful change, rather than violence and destruction.

Day 134:

There goes the neighborhood:

There are three countries in the world not in the Paris climate accord, Syria, which has been in a war for the last 6 years, Nicaragua who refused to join because it was not a strict enough agreement, and the United States, the historically worst polluter in the world.

Donald Trump has just committed a crime against humanity.  His idiotic removal of the US from the Paris climate accords (a deal many said was not nearly strong enough) will doom MILLIONS of people to death.

Global warming is real, its serious, its going to kill millions, and he just doesn’t care.  The evidence is overwhelming, the scientists all agree, he doesn’t care.  The business community doesn’t want him to do it, the international community doesn’t want him to do it, the American people don’t want him to do it.  HE DOESN’T CARE!

The oil companies and coal companies and fracking companies, they want him to do it, the republican senators who are beholden to the big carbon money want him to do it, so it gets done.

It will kill millions, destroy the future for our descendants, ruin the American economy, and potentially cause humanity to go extinct…Trump doesn’t care.

If you have ever been tempted to call your senator, or rep and demand they take action on something, make it this.  You’re state can agree to the accord even if the federal government wont.

If the state wont listen call your mayor, get your city to take action, if we lose this fight, if we can’t keep the climate stable, then nothing else matters.  We will never fix pay equity, free college, racism, sexism, end the wars, if we don’t have a stable climate.

Fuck Trump, and Fuck the short sighted money grabbers who support him.

Day 129:

No It’s Not Going To Be Ok:

Counter punch has an article perfectly summarizing exactly how I have been feeling lately.:

Liberal and other partisan Democrats have spent no small effort trying to evade adult responsibility for Donald Trump’s presence in the White House and Republicans’ control of all three branches of the federal government along with most of the nation’s state governments – this in a nation that loathes the Republican Party.  I’ve written extensively about the remarkable lengths to which Democrats have gone to block honest discussion of how their party’s craven captivity to the corporate and financial elite and their related allegiance to the values and ideology of the professional class have demobilized their “progressive base” and delivered a considerable portion of the white working class over to the arch-plutocratic, white-nationalist Republican Party. Ever since the election they couldn’t lose, the dismal dollar Democrats (DDDs) have been blaming others for their fiasco: the Green Party for running a “spoiler” campaign; Bernie Sanders’ backers, for daring to note and challenge the Goldman Sachs-greased global corporatism of Hillary and the Clinton machine; former FBI Director James Comey’s last-minute e-mail insinuations; Russia, for supposedly intervening in the United States’ supposedly democratic political process.

The entire thing is worth a read, because it gets at an essential truth.  The reason why we have Trump as president is because there wasn’t a party of the working people anymore.  Trump only had to stand on stage a lie, saying HE was for the worker, and people who have been trampled by decades of abuse believed him (even though there was no rational reason to think he was telling the truth).  Just enough people in just the right states and now we have this monster as president.

The fact is this will keep happening until one of the parties stops pandering to the big money interests.  The republicans are basically a lost cause at this point, the democrats are probably as well.  But its possible that a new party could grow out of the democrats, call them justice democrats, democratic socialists, whatever, they can grow within the democratic party and then take it over.  Suborning the power structure already in place for their own purposes.

However that will never happen until we vote in a lot more progressives, who demand we fight for real progressive ideals.  And vote OUT any democrat who doesn’t share in that fight 100%.

That means Joe Manchin, Heidi Heitcamp, Nancy Pelosi, Cory Booker, and so many others have to go.

Trump Watch May 10 2017

Day 111:

 

A long time ago Nixon tried to get out getting impeached by firing a Archibald Cox, a special prosecutor investigating him.  And because people still had some sense of duty to the country back then, it precipitated the resignations of a bunch of people.  Including the Attorney General, the Deputy Attorney General, and A General.

Last night Trump fired FBI director James Comey.  The reasons given were that he didn’t do a good job investigating Clinton’s emails.  If you think this passes the smell test, then you need to get your nose looked at.  Comey had already done what he could to throw a monkey wrench into Clinton’s campaign.  I think the real threat was that Comey was coming for Trump next.

History will sort this out, but what is for sure is that this has kicked off a hornets nest of calls for an independent investigation into Trump, his ties to Russia, his nepotism, his corruption, and in general has kicked off a shit storm.  Trump like Nixon seems to think he is more powerful than he is, and Jeff Sessions is probably going to go down with the ship as well for his part in recommending Comey be fired, even though he is supposed to recuse himself from anything to do with Russia.  One can only hope that like Nixon, Trump overestimates just how clever he is (he is not clever) and thinks he can bully his way out of this (he can not).

If the American people don’t rise up in the 2018 elections and replace just about everyone, then this country is doomed.  If they do however go to the polls and make some serious course corrections we still might get out of this without another economic or environmental disaster.
