The republicans in the house and the senate have just voted to allow large internet companies to sell your browsing data…to 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.
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?
If you don’t know what a VPN is, now might be a good time to google it.
How you may ask?
Trump removed LGBT rights from federal employees. Which will allow contractors to legally discriminate against LGBT people…he did this with an executive order. Meaning he personally thinks its ok.
Legal resident shot by ICE agents in his Chicago home. The brown shirts have already started shooting the citizens.
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.
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.

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
Upcoming Action Against Trump:
Lets get these people elected!
Arturo in California district 34, help here.
The DNC is reshuffling. We will know if they are serious or not about shaping up the party depending on who they keep and who they let go.
Corporate dem’s have got to go! You can’t lie to the people to get elected and then serve big business the moment you get into office. Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh just did that by saying she would support a 15 min wage, and then vetoing this bill.
Fracking banned in Maryland! Mostly due to grassroots actions from people like you!
Tools of change:
Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it?
Calling your government representative:
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.
Phone Bank for Progressive Candidates:
Call the White House:
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:
Go to a town hall and talk to your congress person in person:
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.
Also be sure to keep track if you live in a district with an upcoming flip-able seat (flip to the left that is)
