This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 12

Trump fancies himself a king.  He wants to do whatever he wants whenever he wants.  America doesn’t have kings.  We will stop him, he will thank us when its all over, because the world we are going to build will be better for everyone, even him.

Trump Crime Watch Day 12:

The governments top lawyers have been fired for refusing to go along with Trumps insane immigrant ban.  So have the acting head of the Immigration and Customs.  This is what everyone in government should do.  They must constantly defy and refuse to break the constitution for this madman.   Far better to get fired, or resign, than be complicit in the destruction of this country.  If you go along with Trump you become part of the machine distributing Fascism.

U.S. President Donald Trump fired top federal government lawyer Sally Yates on Monday after she took the extraordinarily rare step of defying the White House and refused to defend new travel restrictions targeting seven Muslim-majority nations.

It was another dramatic twist in the unusually raucous roll-out of Trump’s directive that put a 120-day hold on allowing refugees into the country, an indefinite ban on refugees from Syria and a 90-day bar on citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

The Friday night ban prompted protests and chaos at airports on the weekend as customs officials struggled to put the order into practise, and the fallout spread to U.S. markets on Monday, where stocks suffered their biggest drop of 2017 and companies affected by the change spoke out against it.

Yates said late on Monday that the Justice Department would not defend the order against court challenges, saying that she did not believe it would be “consistent with this institution’s solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right.”

That right there is a true american patriot. Thank you Sally Yates for standing up for what is right.  To give you a little context the last time this happened was under Nixon, and we remember what happened to Nixon.  I know i have linked to the same article three times now, but holy shit you have to read it a couple times, the state department is circulating a memo of dissent, major tech companies are supporting court action against the ban, people didn’t learn about this ban until the media reported it and the entire government is up in arms.  Trump didn’t even make it two weeks in between he caused a constitutional crisis.  His ban has affected 90,000+ people.  They also handcuffed and held a five year old boy as a national security threat…these people are deadly idiots.  This will destroy our relationship with the few remaining people who like us in the middle east.  Remember Obama, and Bush, and now Trump, have been killing and bombing in the middle east for decades now, and now Trump is saying you can’t even send us refugees from the wars we had a hand in starting.

 

For those not sure what this ban is really about, watch this.

————-

Trump supporters are feeling so emboldened by their hateful leader that they are murdering Muslims.  This is what happens when the most powerful man on earth spews hate, it makes all these animals feel like their hateful feelings are valid.  Now people are dead.  What the president says has real world consequences, but Trump doesn’t seem to understand that he can’t just lie with every breath, and spew hatred with every word.

————-

Good thing Trump is looking into voter fraud by hiring a person registered to vote in three states.  There are also rumors that Trump asked his own supporters to vote twice…which should have ended him up in jail.  The point is the only vote fraud going on his from Trump and his cronies.  This whole “vote fraud” emergency is to sooth his ego at loosing the popular vote, and the evil cronies surrounding Trump are using his fragile ego to promote republican style voter suppression on a national scale.  History has seen this before, and the same things that won back our freedoms then will do so now.

————

Bannon is trying to make sure that history will never find out all the criminal shit Trump and gang are doing.  This is both illegal, and a clear sign that they are doing things that will get them tossed in jail if we were to know.  Start filing law suits now, we must be able to know what our elected officials are doing.

————-

From the US Holocaust Museum.  Read it and wonder if we might be there right now.

————

We have to stop Trump from ruining the internet!

———–

Trumps energy plan will be very bad for American business.

———–

Join The Resistance!

People are fighting back and they are winning!  Join in!

There is a march to make Trump release his taxes and its going to be big!  There is the Science march too.  Oh and people are going to protest at Mar a Largo in Florida.  Trump gets no vacation, ever.  No matter where he goes, we will be there to tell him we disapprove. Get your signs made, and go scream your truth to power!

————

Our barrage of phone calls have got the Dem’s in congress properly frightened of the people again.  They plan on filibustering the supreme court nominee.  They also need to be convinced to do a lot more.  KEEP CALLING THEM!  It worked on Schumer…sorta, still think he needs to be primary-ed, but he is doing better.  KEEP CALLING!

You need to be keeping a list of all the things your congress people do between now and the next time they are up for election, and if they are not progressive, then vote them out!  No more evil republicans, no more corporate democrats!

————-

For those of you us who have never lived through a general strike, a general strike is when EVERYONE goes on strike, in essence you shut the whole fucker down for a day.  The calls for a general strike against trump have been going, and when it happens there will be hundreds of millions of people in the streets, and reporters will be asking what our demands are remember you represent the people, not the billionaires. Tell them you want to money out of politics, carbon out of the energy industry, serious global warming policies, universal health care, a living wage, pay equity for women, and free public college, regulating the banks.

————

1000’s of progressives are standing up to run for office!  Be part of the wave of progressive politicians taking back the government for the people. Join the justice democrats and take back the people party and make it work for the people again.

————-

Want to see the house in the hands of the left come 2018?  Get involved!  Be sure to vote in the most progressive people you can.

————-

Pornhub posted a video of the inauguration with the title “white man fucks entire country at the same time”  Even porn can be a weapon against Trump.

————-

Ranked choice voting could help third parties get started, until they are widespread its basically political suicide to try to start a third party, if you want more parties, you need to support this regulation.  Until then lets take over the Dem’s and make them a party for the people again.

——————————————————————————————————-

Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit?  Want to do something about it?  Call your Senator, and your House Rep. and 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.

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

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.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 11

Another week, another chance to fight Trump, lets see what he is up to, and how we can stop him.

Trump’s Crimes Against Common Sense Today:

Trump is going to try and pull the US out of the Paris climate change accord…which is the same thing as saying “Trump is going to doom the world to ruin” Holy shit we can not let him do this.

No other issue is more important than this, you can’t have a living wage on a planet that cant sustain human life, pro choice makes no sense on a planet that can’t sustain human life, who cares about health care on a planet that can’t sustain human life.  Your 401k doesn’t mater on a planet that can’t sustain human life.  This is THE issue we must not get wrong.

Call every single one of your elected representatives from local to national,  and MAKE THEM FIGHT THIS.

——————-

Trump just had a bunch of women and children killed in Yemen.  Obama has been doing this for years, but I bet people care more now.

—————-

this has got to be the dumbest thing I have ever seen…Trump signs order mandating that for every regulation passed, two must be removed.  Is this even constitutional?  Also how hard is it going to be to make your one new regulation simply include the other two you are “getting rid of.”  Trump is an embarrassment, this is 5 year old thinking.

—————-

Sean Spicer, the combative, thick skulled press secretary can’t stop making a fool of himself on twitter, he keeps tweeting his own password out, and can’t seem to understand that the Onion isn’t a news site. This is our propaganda ministry, just remember, he is not a smart, or capable man, he is just a man willing to lie right to your face.  And all it took to get him to give up any sense of common decency was money and a little power.   Don’t be like him.

—————

The department of labor whistle blower site for Wells Fargo has been taken down.  The oligarchs running the government don’t want to give the little people the ability to tattle on the other oligarchs who have up until now secretly run the government.

————–

Facebook can be a tool to organize the resistance, but it can also be a tool that the opposition uses to manipulate and keep tabs on you.  If you must have a facebook account (delete your facebook account), use it wisely, and certainly don’t get your news from it.

That news is being carefully crafted to send you a message.  What message is that?  Who is sending it? Turns out sometimes it was Trump. Think about these things while you are using this service.  Also don’t forget, you are an unpaid employee of Mark Zuckerberg, your life data makes him billions.  He also has said he wants to run for president, just imagine what sort of things he could do with a propaganda tool like facebook at his disposal…

—————-

Is Bannon secretly running things at the white house?  Why exactly is he on the national security council?  Is he the author of the racist Muslim ban?  Could he be the reason why Trump deliberately left out Jews from the Holocaust Memorial day speech?  Bannon is a well known antisemite, racist, and woman hater.  Trump is also very stupid, and easily manipulated.  If it walks like a duck…

That bigoted Muslim ban is  causing some stunning violations of human rights, and lawyers are not being allowed to see people detained at airports.  Even if you don’t care a bit about refugee’s rights, you might care about the fact that this ineffective, racist, bigoted ban is also going to cost the country billions of dollars to enforce (it’s worth noting here that Trump didn’t ban anyone from countries he currently has business dealings with).  Lose your freedom and your money at the same time!  It’s like George W. after 9/11 all over again, except the emergency used to justify this power grab was just made up this time!

—————-

Classic republican projection.  Want to know if a republican is gay? See how many anti-gay bills they have filed, the more, the gayer.  Want to know if your republican president is seeking to start a major war…look to see he is accusing others of doing just that.  That war machine makes a lot of money for a lot of people, and now that we have dim witted racists running the show, who also happen to be very rich with ties other very rich people, don’t be surprised if we ramp up from the many wars Obama left us, to many more.

—————–

Energy Transfer Partnership never followed the court order to stop building DAPL…fuck this, if you can get support to the water protectors there, and call your senator to keep them on notice that you want this project stopped.

——————

JOIN THE RESISTANCE!

The resistance has two jobs, to fight trump, and to make sure the lilly livered, yellow bellied, corporate Democrats stand up to him as well.

I see it as a two part strategy, we have massive public protests, we flood our senators and reps with calls/emails/demonstrations/visits/etc. for the next two years.  Then in the 2018 midterms we primary any corporate dem that stood in our way, and vote out every republican we can.

We fight hard in the streets, and then clean house in the state house/capital hill.   This fight has to start at the local level and go all the way to the top.  Every single dem up for re-election (from dog catcher to senator) should know we are watching them, and that we will not take any rolling over and playing dead.  You have to fight Trump, or you’re out.  Every republican has to go…sorry you are too in bed with the enemy, there is no hope for you.

here is how others are standing up, get inspired, start your own resistance!

—————-

Native american tribe wont let trump build racist Mexican border wall on their land.

—————

When trump banned Muslims from entering the country, U.S. Veterans went to help. Trump has already reached record disapproval ratings (and in record time), it seems the military rank and file are against him as well.

Starbucks, is going to hire 10,000 refugees just to piss him off.  The British want to ban him from the country. The senate Dems are showing some backbone by holding hearings trying to get Trump to follow court orders (call them up and tell them to do more of this).

My favorite though are the massive protests that sprung from almost nowhere as soon as his ban went into place.

Here is what Boston looked like only hours after the executive order was signed, there was at least 10,000, maybe 20,000 people there.  The ACLU filed a challenge and won!

Trump wasn’t the only Washington official to get scorned:

Two alternatives for dealing with Trump:

Jewish members of the crowd had particular messages:

Among those attending: Boston Police Commissioner William Evans (photo by Kris H.):

Also in attendance: Some of the Boston Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (photo by Deborah Elizabeth Finn):

Oh, yeah, Tom Brady is friends with Trump (photo by Sarah Connors):

At the end of the formal remarks, Muslims in the crowd went to the Boylston Street side of Trinity Church for prayers:

Iowans are taking the fight against climate change to the state house!  You might not know this, but some of the strongest fight against oil pipelines has been happening in Iowa.

————-

The resistance is only 3 votes short of blocking Betsy DeVos, who would gut public schools, if you live in any of these states CALL YOUR SENATOR TODAY! Tell them they must vote against this highly unqualified candidate.  If you live in ME, TN, AK, GA, UT, NC, WY, LA, KS, SC, or KY, call your Senator!

————–

It’s working!  Corporate Dems are getting scared of us!  Make them feel our outrage, make them work for us and not for the big money oligarchs!

 

—————-

Tens of thousands are protesting at airports!  If you are flying be sure to report any illegal activity by the TSA, and custom officials.

via boingboing:

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is seeking first-hand reports of travellers being asked to divulge their social media habits by US border guards (beyond the optional field on the ESTA form) (email info@eff.org); meanwhile, ACLU urges travellers to stay on the customs/immigration side and let them know if people are being detained (Tweet @nobanjfk).

Some reports say that those targeted by border guards for illegal, court-order-defying detention are having their phones confiscated before they debark their flights, to prevent them from contacting lawyers or family members; border officials have also falsely claimed that no one is being detained in the USA, apparently under the rubric that border zones are not “in the USA.” Those who are not deprived of their devices can use them to document these disappearances.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 10

Its Sunday, the 10th day of the Trump regime….He doesn’t seem to sleep much (as judged by his late night and early morning toilet tweets) so neither will we!

Trump trashed this today.

————-

Oh great, Racist Homophobic conspiracy nut Stephen Bannon has access to the security council…what could go wrong.

————-

When you want to discredit possible resistance you get them to go along with your lies, then later if they find a soul and decide to fight you they are so unpopular in the public’s mind that they wont be trusted.  That is what is happening to the republican party right now.  They should be fighting Trump just as hard as everyone else.  Otherwise the future of their party is dim indeed.

————-

I think it speaks volumes that Trump banned war refugees on holocaust remembrance day.  But sadly Irony is lost on idiots, so I am sure he didn’t even notice.

————–

Trump has signed an order to have a plan to defeat ISIS within 30 days…which I can only imagine means we are escalating into a major war in the middle east…or else Trump thinks he can just order reality to bend to his expectations, either way this will moron is going to do things that will cause harm and death for years to come.  Just remember, the Taliban, al-qaeda, and a host of other terrorist organizations used to be US supported “freedom fighters.”

Every time we kill someone in the middle east, it makes us less safe.

————–

 

The Resistance!

We never sleep, we never stop fighting, we will beat him, we will win, we will make the world better, we can’t give up!

If you live in MA, or frankly if you live in any state where your senator has voted for ANY trump cabinet picks, call them up and make sure they know you are very very very (like so very you wont vote for them next time) disappointed in them. We need a strong, unified front against EVERYTHING the Trump-ites do. Lets embarrass the tea baggers with how good a job we do with obstructionism.

Nothing gets done for two years, we crush the mid-terms by putting in a bunch of actual progressives (sorry corporate dem’s your time in office is numbered), and then we impeach this asshole and try to salvage what is left of our country.

Every vote matters! We can’t let our leaders think they can do this sort of thing without consequence.

————-

A federal judge has allowed those poor people stuck in airports to go home.  Thank god we still have three branches of government.  (ps.  Bernie Sanders supported this judge when she was getting confirmed, not a big deal, but shows he continues to be proven by history as having good judgement)

————-

The British Bernie Sanders has called for a ban on Trump entering the country.  Fuck yea!  If Trump doesn’t let people into America, no one should let him into any other country.

————-

Trumps support among world leaders is falling faster than his comb-over in a stiff wind.  He has also managed to piss off a growing list of CEO’s of American companiesAppleGooglenational security experts, Taxi drivers in NYC,  members of congress, Canada, Christians, major media outlets, The FrenchThe UK, The UK Royalty, The Mexicans, hell even Hillary Clinton crawled out of whatever shame bunker she has been hiding in to FINALLY say something against Trump.

Maybe we keep a list of people who have not condemned Trump, it would be a lot shorter.

————

The Dem’s managed to win a court case and will help stop Gerrymandering. The republicans can’t win with their ideas so they use redistricting, voter suppression, and fear to win instead. If you can’t win with your ideas, go home, this is not the job for you.

————

Trumps approval rate is dropping a little more than 1% a day.  At this rate he will have a zero percent approval rating in a month or two.  Or if you are reading this Trump NO ONE LIKES YOU.  You are a sad worn out old cliche of all that is wrong with this country, give up, go home.

You wont win, we will, and when we are done you will have a better life, because we want everyone to win, not just those at the top.  Get out of the way and let us make a better world.

————

After a lot of push back the EPA websites on climate change will remain live!

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 9

Its the weekend, go outside, make yourself some tea, and recharge your batteries. Then when you have taken care of yourself, plow back in!

Because Trump is a motherfucker, and we can’t let him get away with this!

This is what Trump is messing up today:

Trump has banned a bunch of countries and people from coming to this country (stranding some in the airport), but somehow managed to avoid banning any of the countries or people he has business ties to.  Me thinks his ban on refugees and immigrants is just like everything else he does, really more about enriching him and his cronies, and not about America at all.  By the way, people with actual green cards are also being turned away.  These are people who are legally allowed to be in the country, and are most likely being separated from their spouses and children.  You have a much higher chance of being killed by the cops than by an undocumented (or documented) immigrant, so I am not all that sure why this ban is happening in the first place.

—————

Trump thinks the New York Times is fake news.  Step one in building a dictatorship is to make sure you discredit anyone who would speak out against you.

—————-

Trumps supporters have swallowed too much of the Koolaid to know fact from fiction…Even when they have the proof right in front of their faces.  What this means is that its going to take a lot of work to get them to turn against Trump, and turn against him they must, because he will have no problem throwing his own supporters under the bus when the time comes to make a dollar off them.

—————

Republicans are passing laws all over the country making protest illegal.  THIS CAN NOT BE ALLOWED.  This is a clear violation of our 1st amendment rights.  If you live in one of these states your state government needs to know that you are 100% against this.  Call, vote, lobby, show up in their office, protest (while its still legal).  Don’t let them get away with this.

—————

Join the resistance!

Has your corporate sellout democratic senator been voting for Trump’s cabinet choices?  Because the Dem’s changed the rules under Obama so that you don’t need 60 votes to confirm cabinet appointees, the 48 Dem’s could all vote against every cabinet choice and they would all still go through.  So I don’t  understand why they all wouldn’t vote as a block against every single one of them.  They could take this chance to show the world that they are going to stand up and fight, and instead they are rolling over.

Check the list, if your senator is on the list and has voted for any of these criminals, call them up and let them know you are pissed.  Everyone else is, and its working!

————-

The smart people are fighting Trump.  Be one of them, call your local elected official and demand they stand up to Trump, or be voted out at the next election.

————-

Obama’s daughter is doing more than Obama ever did to fight against DAPL and KeystoneXL!  The kids are alright!

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 8

Keep up the calls to your senator, I called mine yesterday only to find that the voicemail was full, and all the staff was already listening to other people.  Our voices scare them, and our calls annoy them into action.

Here is what the Trump administration is doing today:

He is ruining our relationship with Mexico, with racist and isolationist propaganda. In return Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto canceled his visit.  His “wall” (which Americans are going to pay for) is actually not even supported by Texas Republicans.  The Trump team can’t even figure out what their plan is on this most racist and central pillar of their campaign.  It’s almost like they were just saying things they thought would win them the election without having any real plans.

Oh by the way now that Trump is trying to block federal money to sanctuary cities, it might be a good time to review what happens to cities when they try to pass anti-brown people legislation.  Turns out it ends up costing the tax payers of those cities millions of dollars.  Could the same happen at a federal level?  Will American tax payers be left holding the bill for Trumps insane attempts at destroying democracy?

————-

Seems the Russians are trying to bribe Trump allies by offering them big stakes in Russian oil companies.  Could Trump be in on this?  We can’t know without seeing his taxes.  If you don’t think the selection of Rex Tillerson (former CEO of Exxon Mobil) has nothing to do with the fact that Exxon was about to close a half trillion dollar oil deal with Russia right before the Obama administration put sanctions on them, you are not paying attention.

These robber barons are going to get rid of the sanctions, then open the doors for huge oil drilling deals.  Making a few rich, and dooming the rest of us to a global warming future.

————-

He is also fucking up our relationship with China.  So much so that they have begun posturing with nuclear weapons.  Raise your hand if you want another nuclear war.  No one…that’s what I thought.

————-

Don’t worry they are also ruining their relationship with the media.  With Stephen Bannon telling the media to “keep it’s mouth shut.”  Maybe this will prompt them to do their job and fight back harder, or maybe this is the first steps that lead to a removal of first amendment rights.  It’s easy enough to see a president trump turn into a dictator trump, especially when he is posting lists of crimes committed by immigrants (which Hitler did as well).  Blaming the media, and the “other” is a classic fascist technique for consolidating power.

—————-

Trump is so busy worrying about his inauguration attendance numbers that he is skipping vital intelligence briefings.  I always felt like he was too petty and stupid for the job of President, and now I know I was right.  He would rather just have all the pomp and none of the work of leading this country.

Remember who else skipped intelligence briefings…George W. Bush, and remember that one he skipped that was titled “Bin Laden determined to attack America.”  Being the president involves a lot more than tweeting back at the news.  There is good evidence from insiders that Trump is a child who gets his views from fox news.  Remember he is 71, this is basically your cranky old grandpa who keeps sending you email forwards and does racist rants at thanksgiving.  Only he runs the country now.  Maybe that’s why he has a 36% approval rating for his first week.

—————

People are still demanding that Trump release his taxes, he wont because I am sure it shows he is not as rich as he says he is, and his ego wont let that happen, and also because I am sure it shows a bunch of business ties with Russia and other foreign countries that he will be colluding with over the next four years to enrich himself. (which in case you are curious is a violation of the Constitution’s Emoluments clause)

—————-

Trump is at war with science, which should scare the shit out of you.  Because science is what keeps us healthy and prosperous.  Without it we would degenerate into a pile of anti-vax, global warming denialists, flat earthers.  He even went so far as to have the CDC (center for disease control) cancel a climate change conference…you know why would we want to know how warming climate will bring new kinds of yellow fever, cholera, dengue fever, etc into our country…I guess Trump if just fine with you dying from any of a dozen new illnesses that will be here when its warmer.

—————-

Trump is trying to get rid of the consumer protection agency…which has returned over 11 billion dollars to the tax payers.  Making it one of the only useful things to come out of the bank meltdown.  So of course Trump wants to get rid of it.

————

The state departments entire senior administration team just resigned, or maybe they were fired, its unclear.  The point is that Trump has removed all the people who actually knew what they were doing at the state department and has plans to replace them with Rex Tillerson CEO of Exxon Mobil.  So instead of the state department you know preventing war and making peace, it will be in charge of creating climate change, and extracting oil from countries (which has never lead to war, ever).

————

The republicans don’t have a plan to replace Obama Care.  They are just going to throw people off health care coverage, and then watch them die.

————-

Trump seems incapable of telling any truths.  He now claims every single of the 3-5 million votes cast illegally (which never happened by the way, and is a total lie), every one of them went to his opponent.  Even though there is actual documented voter fraud, and it was to benefit him (it was also a white lady from Iowa).  Trump is lying to make it easier for him to implement voter suppression laws.  Do not let him get away with this.

—————-

The Resistance!

That’s you!  Your calls and emails are working!  Betsy DeVos might not get appointed secretary of education because she is horribly unqualified, and also because people are flooding their senators with calls and emails telling them not to.

I would suggest you call your senator and tell them not to vote for ANY Trump appointees.  Not a single one is qualified.

————–

New York state government is being urged to boycott companies that help build Trumps wall.  Money is the only language these cretins speak, so perhaps we boycott any company that goes along with anything Trump wants to do, from building the wall, or making a Muslim registry.  If Trump becomes business poison, perhaps not so many companies will be willing to help him.

————–

Just because Trump shut down the White House phone lines doesn’t mean you still can’t call him.  Use this awesome 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).  You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.

————–

Finally remember the media is going to be doing 24/7 Trump alarm-ism for the next 4 years.  Be sure to take a break, and keep yourself sane.  We need the resistance to be strong and ready to go.  The media is going to try and scare us so we will watch, so they can get ad money, and so that in 4 years we will go right back to the same kind of corporate democrat that got us into this problem in the first place (Bill, Hillary, Barack, etc.).

The middle class in this country can not be fooled into once again voting for a corporate democrat that deregulated the banks and passes shitty trade laws, followed by an evil republican that is so bad we are willing to go back to the shitty democrat for relief.

What we need is an FDR style new deal style democrat. Someone who will tax the rich, regulate the banks, protect the environment, give us universal health care, universal free public college, and (I just have to say it), make the rich poorer, and the poorer richer.

In this time of trouble, don’t be fooled by the Corey Booker’s, and the Chuck Schumer’s, they are part of the problem.  I would suggest you sign up for a progressive org like Our Revolution, or Justice Democrats.

Here is a list of all the Alt-twitter accounts by government agencies fighting against Trumps anti-science gag order.

Just remember it would be very easy to fake these kinds of alt-twitter accounts so vigilance is in order.  Also even if they are real they could be in danger from NSA style cyber spying to find out the owners of them.

And finally you should watch this its a great documentary about how neoliberal powers normalized their corruption.  It also spends a good amount of time talking about how Putin destroyed resistance in his country through some rather creative and insane methods.

One example that stood out, he would secretly give large sums of money to his enemies, and then let it leak that he had done so.  In this way he de-legitimized his foes by lumping them in with his corruption.

I see a lot of parallel type tactics going on right now.

Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit?  Want to do something about it?  Call your Senator, and your House Rep. and 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.

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