This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 64

Trump Watch:

Our conman in chief is in trouble, Thousands of Trump University students file to get their money back.  It’s almost like you shouldn’t be the president if your business is running scams on people.

————–

Nunes gives away the game: The GOP will never exercise real oversight on Trump.  Time to elect a lot of progressive democrats next year…Schiff: New evidence shows possible Trump-Russia collusion

—————–

I feel bad for the Trump supporters who are now having buyers remorse.  Like this poor woman who’s husband is going to be deported because she voted for trump.  Honestly I really get why they would want to believe his lies, but its pretty clear now that Trump doesn’t give a shit about the people who put him into office.  I am frankly surprised more of his supporters have not woken up and realized what has happened yet.

———————

Donald J. Trump is a filthy liar.  He said Keystone XL pipeline would create 28,000 jobs. US State Department says 50

——————

Congress Just Voted 50-48 to Erode Your Broadband Privacy.  If you have a republican senator its time to call them up and yell at them for this.  Maybe if we scare them enough they will urge the president not to sign the bill.

—————–

David Friedman confirmed: Man who said liberal Jews worse than Nazi collaborators to be US ambassador to Israel…this is not the onion.

———————

Ever wonder how we got into this mes…could it be the 2 billion wall street spent on this last election…maybe.

Pardon me, I have been laughing all morning.  Trump has one again threatened to “leave ObamaCare in place”  if the repeal bill fails.  1.  HA HA HA HA HA, OH NO PLEASE DON’T! 2.  We have him on the run, only 17% of people like TrumpCare.  3.  Now is the time to propose universal single payer.  FIGHT SOMETHING SHITTY WITH SOMETHING BETTER! 

———————

Exxon ordered to hand over Rex Tillerson’s secret emails to climate change prosecutors

——————

There is now ‘more than circumstantial evidence’ Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to disrupt election: There is evidence ‘very much worth of investigation’ says Adam Schiff  Just remember the “collusion” is all about getting rich people richer at the expense of democracy and poor people.  This is not a red invasion, its just another filthy money grab.  We need to get money out of politics, or we will end up like Putin’s Russia.

———————-

It’s not just big oil companies that use their wealth to screw us over.  TurboTax, H&R Block Spend Big Bucks Lobbying for Us to Keep Doing Our Own Taxes  Maybe next year you don’t have either one do your taxes as a protest.

———————

Time to kick these idiots out.  Bernie might be too old to run in 2020, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get other highly qualified people by then.

———————

I am still behind the message of Bernie Sanders, and hope that he can get a lot more senators on his side, either by melting the corporate money bonds from the best senators or by replacing the ones we have with better ones.

Trump Watch:

Now is the time to counterattack, now is the time for every democrat to be on tv talking about universal single payer health care, a 15 dollar min. wage, free public college, pay equity for women, environmental protections, and stopping foreign wars.  Everyone is awake, everyone is paying attention, this is the time when we start proclaiming our progressive policy choices and telling everyone why they are better.  Then in the midterms, we sweep the republicans from the house and senate, impeach trump and pence, and then ride out the rest of whoever is left’s term.  Elect a real progressive like Bernie Sanders, and get to work making this country ready for the future.

You will notice its not the time to go all in on Russia…unfortunately many corporate democrats would rather everyone focus on Russia than on how bad of a job they are doing.  Russia is about rich oligarchs in Russia fucking over Russian people, and rich oligarchs in America fucking over Americans, and how they work together to do this.  It is not about invasion, or ideology, unless you count endless greed as an ideology.

Republicans are all in this together at this point… time for an independent investigation.

Investigate the Russian shit, but spend most of your time describing a real progressive vision for the future, using real policy examples, and we will win the mid terms in a landslide.

These people must go.  If you live in Oklahoma, its time to vote this ass hole out.

If you’re a millionaire, Trumpcare gives you $50K. If you’re poor, it costs you $1,420.  Trumpcare is a tax dodge for the super rich, it is not a health care plan.  Call your congress people now and make sure they don’t vote for this piece of crap.

Trump Watch:

Well holy shit…everything seems to be going bad for Trump all at once.  Frankly I am surprised it took this long for the entire house of cards to crumble.

You got your Russian shit show, Your budget shit show, your Trumpcare shit show, your false claims of wiretapping shit show.  The FBI director is testifying that he was under investigation, poor poll numbers, there are Russian gambling rings at Trump tower, family corruption, at this point the list of things to impeach him on is about a mile and a half long, small font, double sided pages.

Meanwhile in other countries Rex Tillerson the “I didn’t want this job” of lying former Exxon Mobile CEO’s didn’t show up to a UN human rights hearing…what the hell, how quickly are we going to end up being a world pariah.

Paul Manafort, secretly worked for a Russian billionaire to advance the interests of Russian President Vladimir Putin a decade ago, signed a $10 million annual contract beginning in 2006

Do you ever wonder why you don’t just file your taxes on a government website for free?  Filing Taxes Could Be Free and Simple. But H&R Block and Intuit Are Still Lobbying Against It.  Tell your congress people that this is foolish, and wastes millions of tax payers money every year.

Compiled from Bernie’s March 17th Townhall.

1.) Ask what is most efficient for you to do and get involved. Be creative. Fight back in every way you can think of. And be creative. Be involved in politics in a way you haven’t before.

2.) Come together and talk about the problems that we face, figure out how we go forward. Fight for a progressive vision. Practice civil discourse, hear each other out and learn from each other.

3.) Put pressure on. Know what the state is doing, know what the government is doing, and say to them “Look, these are our needs”. Articulate your needs, and demand that elected officials listen to what you have to say.

4.) Bust the phone lines in Washington DC. Say: “You can’t do that”. Make them listen to their constituents about:

a.) Bernie’s upcoming Medicare-for-All single payer program legislation.

b.) Trumps proposal: Throwing people off of health care, raising premiums, devastating Medicade, defunding planned parenthood, and giving 275 billion dollars in tax breaks to people who need it the least.

c.) Bernie’s legislation that says your pharmacist or you or a distributor should be able to buy medicine from any country in the world where the prices are lower and where that medicine is safe.

d.) Bernie’s idea that public colleges and universities should be tuition free.

e.) Our major water crisis.

5.) Nationalize what you’re doing. Make friends, lobby or petition national organizations that you are part of. Hook up with good people in other states. Develop an opposition to officials not acting in the public’s interests.

6.) Rally, march, or protest to the point where police have to block off access because the city can’t accommodate any more cars. It’s having its impact. When they look out the window they should see masses.

7.) Vote with your wallet and champion these ideas locally: Make solar available all day with home based batteries. Move to the electrification of our transportation system. Champion a quality rail system. Get your communities involved at becoming more energy efficient.

8.) Show up and take over the Democratic party. Walk in and start electing progressive leadership.

9.) Run for school board, run for the board of selectmen, think about running for state legislature.

10). See how much your drugs would cost in Canada and other countries. It may be well worth your while to check that out and deal with it.

11.) Stand together when Trump starts attacking Muslims or undocumented people, or when he lies. We stand with those people who are being scapegoated and tell the truth in the midst of a lot of lies.

Calling your government representative:

Or try this website
Fax Congress here (free!)

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.

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)
