This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 54

Trump Watch:

Trump is going to cut your medicare, your medicaid, your health care, and possibly kill you with neglect, all so the extremely rich can get a little richer.  They are willing to actually kill you so that they can get more wealth.

—————

 

The CBO (the nonpartisan office that scores budget proposals) has released an absolutely SCATHING review of Trumpcare.  It will kick 24 MILLION people off health care, and cost people lives.  (Or 26 million if you listen to Trump’s White House!) And the Republicans have no idea what they should do about it.  Trumps plan is to go on vacation again.  Its a disaster.  And we must stop it, call your senator today.

——————-

Trump probably fired the AG of New York because he was investigating fox news.

——————-

Its getting pretty clear that Exxon has known about climate change, understands what causes it, and is lying to everyone about it.  They have purchased the state department, and are now moving to enrich themselves even more.

———————

If you live in Iowa, maybe its time to get ride of this guy

——————-

Republicans are trying to remove federal funding for mass transit…their greed knows no depths.  Don’t like this?  Call your senator and rep now.

———————-

All the crazy shit with Russian continues to get crazier.  Just remember at the bottom of all this bullshit is a bunch of very rich people trying to get even richer.

—————–

Trump has said he would donate his salary, but of course he is lying about that.

——————

Republicans are radical crazy nut bags, and have somehow managed to fool people into thinking they are normal human beings.

——————-

Even the girl guides are afraid to come to Trump’s america…make no mistake this sort of thing will hurt our economy.  American citizens, just so you know, if you leave this country, when you come back, the U.S. Border Patrol can search your cell phone.

————–

Trumps approval ratings plunge.  He is so weak that the entire republican party is vulnerable to a political counter attack.

California is pushing universal healthcare.  This would change absolutely everything in this country.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 53

Trump Did This:

When they round up immigrants to deport, they often spend months working illegally as slaves in privately run for profit detention facilities, Trump has overturned Obama’s rule that these private for profit slave shops should no longer be used.  They are so bad people are asking to be put in solitary confinement for their own safety.

—————–

It seems that Trump can’t keep even the most simple of his campaign promises, to donate his own salary.  He says buy american, but makes his families clothing in China.  He criticized (rightly) Obama’s drone strike program, but has increased drone strikes over 430%.

——————-

Did your senator vote for Elaine Chow as the transportation secretary?  Now might be a good time to call them up and let them know that was a bad idea.

—————-

The republicans are so hungry for tax cuts for the rich that they will do anything to get another one passed.  Even if it means kicking millions of people off health care, and killing tens of thousands of -people in the process.

—————–

People are afraid to visit America, I can’t blame them really.

—————-

Republican voters need to stop punching themselves in the face.

Renewable energy has the potential to create hundreds of thousands of good paying clean jobs in this country, and will even if Trump supports fossil fuels, but with the right government support we could have clean air, clean water, cheap electricity, and more jobs.  Call your senator today and tell them to stop supporting big carbon and start supporting renewables!

——————-

83% of our top high school students are children of immigrants.  Just one more reason immigration is a great thing for this country.  Unless of course you don’t want smart people working with you.

Breitbart news is getting protested by anti-propaganda activists!

Trump Muslim ban 2.0 is already losing court battles! call your congress people and demand they fight against things like this.

—————–

Obamacare, and Trumpcare both are highly flawed, the republicans can’t seem to find their own asshole, and the democrates are too busy caving to corporate donors….but just maybe, if we push these idiots hard enough, we could end up with something much better than both plans!  Lets get single payer back on the table!  Lets get a real universal health care system in this country!

————–

We must resist corporate democrats.  They must be removed and replaced with progressives.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 52

Trump Watch:

 

CNN has done us the favor of collecting all their stories about Trumps conflict of interest into one website.

——————–

Trumpcare is in such a shambles that half the right hates it for being too nice to the poor, and the entire left hates it for being a thinly veiled tax cut for rich people (which will also kill tens of thousands as it kicks them off health care plan), insane Alaskan Sarah Palin hates it for her own reasons.

Make no mistakes though, the republicans want to destroy health care, and specifically want to attack women’s health care and right to choose.  The giant tax cuts only make the big money people happy, the rest is to appease all the religious crazies in the party.

——————-

Trump is escalating the war in Yemen, dropping more drone strikes in a week than Obama did in a year.  Didn’t know we were at war in Yemen?  Got to keep up, we are dropping bombs in seven middle eastern countries.  Including now ground troops in Syria.  All of which was done by Obama, and continued by Trump.  Those bomb and ammo factories need to make quarterly goals!  Just remember, like private prisons, private health care, and now war, if someone is making a profit off it, they will make sure that it continues to grow.

——————–

Not only are Trump and his team chronic almost habitual liars…they are also really bad at keeping their lies secret.  Incompetence from soup to nuts.

——————–

Trump spends all day watching TV, and all weekend playing Golf…he is not taking the job seriously.

——————

These are the 24 senators who want to take away your privacy online.  Call them and let them know you are not happy with this.

——————

It’s put up or shut up time for Trump’s crazy wire tapping claims.  This is a serious charge and a president can’t go making these kinds of claims without proof.  There can and should be legal repercussions.  It might also turn out that Trump was up for consideration for wire tapping, because he is breaking a bunch of laws…either way its not good for him.

——————–

Trump wants to defund the coast guard to pay for the wall….lets home all them sneaky illegals don’t have access to boat or ladder technology.  Trump’s plans are a joke, and he is too.

——————-

The CIA is almost certainly starting their own NSA version of super spy systems.

Whats good for the goose…Texas legislator introduces “mens health” bill banning masturbation, in effort to highlight just how stupid most “womens health” bills are.

——————-

Nevada is trying to be the latest state to circumvent the Electoral College.  If you live there call your elected officials (see below in the tools section for all the numbers) and tell them to support this bill!  2 time in recent history has the electoral college voted against the will of the people. Both with disastrous effects.

——————–

We got em on the run!  Paul Ryan was a no show at his town hall, keep up the pressure!  These sort of tactics get the local news to cover you and raise issues important to you and your community.

Texas is going to have to redraw its districts because the ones they have now are racist.  This could return democrats to Texas, as the current districts are drawn to make it nearly impossible to get elected.

The UK is having troubles with their privatization experiments, perhaps we should learn from them and not privatize our public infrastructure.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 51

Trump Destroyed This Today:

The white house has admitted that Trump got his “wiretap” news from Breitbart.  So secret president Bannon can call up his former employees, say “print this” and then he waits for Trump to read it and act without any critical thinking, sure its a round about way to run the president like a puppet, but its a lot less messy than shoving your hand up his ass and working him like a marionette.  Either way its a disturbing insight into just how stupid and easily manipulated the guy with the nuclear codes is.

—————–

Idiot racist Jeff Sessions, who can’t seem to keep from committing perjury, is trying to clean out any Obama era AG’s.  Why?  Maybe so that none of them try to go after him for his crimes?  Maybe he wants a “clean transition.”  I will let you decide.

—————

Mohamed Ali’s son was detained AGAIN this time at a DC airport after talking with lawmakers about….being detained at airports.  This smacks of Trump using DHS and the TSA as his personal goons.  Demanding papers, making airports de-facto check points, this is the road to fascism we are all walking down.

——————-

It’s all falling apart in Washington, when you back these guys into a corner they do dangerous things.  Lets hope they all have the dignity to calmly go to jail for their crimes.

————————

Most people think it was the Russians who hacked the DNC emails (the hacking and what was in the email are two different things by the way, those emails outlined cheating against Bernie, but how they came to light is a different matter), and then released to Wikileaks.

But now it seems like a lot of Trump advisers had contact with both the hackers, and wikileaks.  Certainly seems like the campaign was ready to go right when the news broke, and it sure looks like the Russians did the hacking to help Trump.  And it sure looks like they did it so they could make billions and billions of dollars.  This is all so clearly corruption.  The Russians are not invading, this is not a red scare, this is plutocrats using government to enrich themselves both here and in Russia.

The fact that the DNC was such an easy target, and were doing so many horrible things, is their own fault.  The fact that we all learned about it when we did, seems to be looking more and more like Trump’s fault.

—————–

If you love freedom, and you love Trump, you should love Net Neutrality.

—————–

Trump lied about the job numbers under Obama 19 times, but the first time good job numbers come out for him, he does not.  Trump will lie cheat and steal to get what he wants, no matter how obvious his lies are.

——————-

The republican health care tax cut plan is no big deal according to Paul Ryan.  Can we please replace this idiot the next time he is up for election.

Scott Pruitt’s office is being flooded with angry calls.  Why you may ask?  Because Scott Pruitt is a stupid climate denier who takes large sums of money from oil companies, and goes on tv and says the dumbest things.  Also his lies may kill you or your children because the climate is falling apart.  If you want to call up Scott Pruitt and tell him you think he should follow the science of global warming, give him a call: 202-564-4700

——————

Way back in the bad old days I was living in Texas when they redrew the districts to screw over a bunch of democrats.  The democrats in state congress at the time actually fled to Oklahoma to try and deny a quorum, the FBI was called in to go arrest them and bring them back, it was a huge mess.  Now those same districts that were fought so hard against, have been ruled unconstitutional!  Fights might take a long time, but if they are worth fighting they are worth fighting for a long time.

————–

Bernie should be our next president.  He is fighting for us now, has been for decades, and will do a much better job than just about anyone else out there.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 50

Trump Watch:

A little discussed bill moving through the house right now, supported by republicans, spurred on by their big money donors, would allow your boss to genetically test you, and if you refused fine you large sums of money…This could lead to people with genetic dispositions to certain illnesses not getting employment, and under the new republican health care bill, if you can’t get a job, you can’t get health care.  This is despicable, big money donors are actually deciding who lives and who dies just so they can make more money.

Do you live in North Carolina?  Find this intensively creepy?  See Below:

Regarding Virginia Foxx, the bill’s sponsor, a 2014 HuffingtonPost article:

As reported yesterday by OpenSecrets, Representative Virginia Foxx (R-NC) has no serious opposition in her bid for reelection, yet has received more than $800,000 in campaign contributions. More than half of that money has come from outside North Carolina, much of it from corporate special interests.

Taking a look at her top donors from the 2016 election cycle we find the largest donor that hires lobbyists, the SAS Institute. “A multinational developer of analytical software.”

Selected quotes from their wiki:

SAS spokespeople say its employee benefits are provided for business, not altruistic, reasons.

According to USA Today, the workplace culture has created “intensely loyal” staff who care about the company’s well-being.

Even though there are unlimited sick days, the average employee takes only two.

The SAS institute also makes genetic analytical software.

How about this person no longer gets to be in government anymore, how about we run a progressive candidate to force them out of office!

———————-

All the bad Russian ties to money, and corruption, and hacking, and meetings, and colluding, are starting to be proven true.  Michael Flynn was apparently secretly working for Turkey.  Which the Trump crew claims they didn’t know, but they did.  Drip drip drip drip.  It’s only a matter of time before enough republicans lose their seats because of Trump, and then either there will be enough progressives/corporate dems to impeach him, or the republicans themselves will turn on him.

Trump himself is running scared, canceling all his press events where reporters get to ask questions.  Congress is on his ass about deleting his tweets, something he doesn’t seem to understand is that HE IS THE PRESIDENT, what he says is public record, and a public document.

——————

It seems that the republicans are so in the sway of big business that they want to remove Obama era privacy rules that will keep internet companies from selling your personal browsing data.  Just think of all the websites you go to, think how that data could be used to send you ad’s, or to intimidate you.  Do you really want that to be spied on by corporations…who’s only motive is profit, no matter how or what they are making money from?  This is not a good thing, call up your congress person and tell them you want your browsing data to remain secret and private.

———————-

Scott Puritt is a moron, and doesn’t know a thing about science, he doesn’t think CO2 is what is causing global warming, and doesn’t think humans have anything to do with it.  Too bad that basically all the worlds countries/scientists disagree with him.

——————-

I know its a basic irony, but its still funny.  91.2% of Americans living in Mexico are there illegally.  It would seem only fair that they get rounded up at work and send to illegal labor camps…oh no wait that’s what we do.  Mexico allows them to live there.

———————–

You know what else is funny (in the laugh so you don’t cry kind of way) the official name of Trumpcare….

————————–

Trumpcare will not cover mental health, or substance use disorders.  Because why would it.  Trumpcare is a joke, that will kill tens of thousands of Americans, and make millions more go bankrupt or suffer.  I guess to cover up for it they are lying about Obamacare…which is something they have been doing forever.  The truth is they want to get rid of Obama care because it imposes taxes on the rich, and thats not something the republican donor class is ok with.

 

——————

It seems as a rule that Trump will only pick the worst people for every position.  David Friedman, the man who said liberal Jews are worse than Nazi collaborators named new US Ambassador to Israel

——————–

Scott Pruitt is destroying the EPA and Rex Tillerson seems to be destroying the state department. With state department staff left with “literally nothing to do.”

——————

Trump is a child, banning certain staff from air force one as punishment…

———————–

Massachusetts joins Hawaii in suing the federal government over the illegal and immoral Muslim ban!  New York and Washington are getting in on the resistance as well!  One by one the states should come out and sue over this illegal and stupid executive order.  Call your attorney general and let them know you want them to sue the federal government!

———————

New Mexico is about to be the 7th state to ban LGBT “Conversion” therapy.  Because it isn’t a real thing, and instead just tortures LGBT people for being gay.  If you live in New Mexico now would be a good time to call your state congress people and governor and tell them to support this bill!

——————–

Jason Chaffetz went on tv and told poor people not to buy iphones so that they could afford health care.  Then it came out his super pac pays for all his cell phones (spending way more than is normal by the way), and that he gets free health care from the government.  He wants poor people to get sick and die, or go bankrupt to make “the hard choices”  but he himself gets everything given to him.

Well one doctor in Utah has had enough, and Kathryn Allen is raising money fast to challenge him.  Lets toss this doctor some more cash so she can rock Jason’s world in 2018.  Chaffetz won his district by 74% last time…but I think things are a little different now.

———————–

Our Revolution endorses Cheri Honkala, Green Party candidate for State Rep in Pennsylvania. She has raised $60,000, the Dem nominee was disqualified, and the last 2 Dems to hold the seat were removed for corruption. It’s Cheri vs. the GOP!

Go see all the local people you can support at our revolution!  Not all of them are perfect, but they are all pretty good.

—————

It’s important to know why we lost, you can’t fight something with nothing and that is what Clinton tried to do.  Sure Trump said nothing but lies, and yes he is a racist and a sexist and a horrible person, but people still want to know what you stand for!  You can’t just be “not that guy.”  Corporate dems think they can just be pleasant, and cordial and continue to fuck over working people and think they will win.

They have to stand for something, a 15 dollars minimum wage, health care for all, free college tuition to public schools, ending the wars, treating the environment well, taxing the rich, supporting unions, believing in science, lgbt rights, equal pay for women.  These things should fall out of democrats mouths every single time they are asked any questions.  They can’t just say “well the republicans are monsters so vote for us”  IT DOESN’T WORK!

—————————————-

This from Bernie Sanders:

Don’t look at the Republicans’ plan to replace Obamacare as a health care plan, because it really is not. Look at it as a tax plan with $275 billion in tax breaks for the top 2%, people earning $250,000 a year or more, and massive cuts to health care for everyone else.

Image may contain: text

 

Bernie gets it, this is a tax plan, not a health care plan.

Send Some Text Messages for progressive causes (I know it says textforbernie, but its for a range of progressive candidates)

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)
