This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 43

Things Trump Broke Today:

Politicians seem to be using their personal email for several reasons, they are too lazy to use more than one email account, and they want to avoid FOIA requests.  It wasn’t ok when Clinton did it, and it isn’t ok when The vice president or the head of the EPA did it.  Especially considering Pence used fucking AOL, and it was hacked…and Scott Pruitt lied under oath about it.  Kick all these fuckers right out of office, they don’t take the job seriously.

If that is not enough reason to kick Scott Pruitt out, maybe this is:

UN: “We are well on our way to the sixth global extinction of species in the history of the planet, and States are still failing to halt the main drivers of biodiversity loss, including habitat destruction, poaching and climate change.”

Rex Tillerson will have to go as well, as he can’t even muster up the courage to fight for the future of humanity.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson snubs UN request for climate change meeting – Patricia Espinosa says it would be ‘very bad’ if the US was to stop trying to reduce global warming

Meanwhile Trump is busy defunding the EPA.

————-

Russia Russia Russia Russia Russia Russia Russia Russia! RUSSIA! RUSSIA!! RUSSIA!!!.  Impeach these idiots already, or stop talking about this.  I don’t want another red scare, and McCarthy era witch hunts.  These “ties to Russia” are not about betraying some spirit of America.  Its about a lot of money changing hands, and a bunch of corrupt politicians from both countries using their office to enrich themselves.  This is about a failure of the Russian and US governments to serve their people.  This is not a return to the 50’s.

Trump is busy using the presidency to raising money illegally to pay off his many many debts.  We have elected a con man as president folks.  Russia is just the tip of the iceberg, not of his treason, but of his criminality.  He doesn’t care enough about anything to commit treason, he just wants our money.

——————-

Yet another crime to add to the “impeach” bucket list.  Trump filed improper campaign report.

——————-

Homeland Securities own documents don’t support Trumps Muslim Ban.  Racism masquerading as law is never a good idea.

——————

Trump can’t even follow his own jingoistic “buy American steel” laws.  He is going to give the Keystone pipeline an exception…

——————

Hope you were not thinking of taking a vacation to Europe, they are passing laws to limit Visa free travel.  Why?  Because we did it first…sigh.

——————

These corporate democrats must go. They just voted in a climate denier as interior secretary.  Progressive must primary all of them from the left. JusticeDemocrats.com!

——————–

The republicans plan to replace Obama care is so good, so amazing, that they are hiding it from everyone.

Canada might have its problem with Tar Sands, but its stepping up to support women across the globe.  If you know anyone from Canada have them call up their leaders and thank them.  Thank you Canada!  It’s good to know entire other countries are helping to fight against Trump’s bad policies.

—————–

Hundreds of angry citizens chant “COWARD!” at Paul Ryan.  I can’t think of a more fitting thing to chant at a man with a rubber spine, and no moral compass.  This is the only thing that scares these people, the specter of being voted out of office.  They will turn on Trump if we keep the pressure up on them.

They are also chanting at Jeff Sessions.  This must continue.

——————-

Patrick Steward is going to become an American, just so he can fight trump, ENGAGE!

—————-

Bernie Sanders calls for Sessions to resign.  I agree fully:

Sanders: Sessions Must Resign

WASHINGTON, March 2 – Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) issued the following statement Thursday after it was reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions misled the Senate Judiciary Committee about previous contacts with Russia’s ambassador to the United States:

“Millions of Americans are deeply concerned about the possibility that the Trump administration colluded with President Putin and the Russian authoritarian government to win the presidential election. It is deeply disturbing that then-Sen. Jeff Sessions, under oath at a Senate confirmation hearing, falsely denied having met with the Russian ambassador.

“We need a Justice Department that will give us the facts about Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election and their ties to the Trump campaign, not one led by someone who deliberately misled Congress about his own communications with the Russian government. We also must find out what President Trump knew about meetings involving his campaign and the Russians.

“Attorney General Sessions should resign and a special prosecutor should be appointed to give the American people credible answers about Russia’s involvement in the U.S. election.”

—————-

Muslims are offering to guard Jewish cemeteries.  I guess in a sick sort of way, Trump is bringing us all together.  Together to fight against him.

—————

Better watch out you sniveling politicians, a judge just ruled that your government emails are public, even if you use a private device, or a private email service.  You work for us, its our email, hand it over.

—————-

Lets get this guy elected in Kansas. James Thompson.

Republicans are starting to realize that Trump needs to release his taxes.  Keep calling them, keep demanding this.

Trump’s Terrible Tyranny:

More members of Trump’s cabinet have been implicated in the Russian scandal.  Jeff Sessions perjured himself when he failed to say that he had contact with the Russians during the Trump campaign.  By Sessions’ own standards he should be removed from office.

Can we just for moment however remember that even if they had nothing to do with Russia, they all still have done plenty of other things that we should remove them from office for, in many cases jail them.  Russia is becoming the distraction by which these idiots actually mask the rest of their nefarious doings.  Tax breaks for the rich, taking away healthcare, destroying the EPA and environment, breaking our public school system, keeping Trumps taxes secret, supporting private prisons, sending our soldiers to their death frivolously, the war on drugs black people, personally enriching themselves, and inspiring racists these are much easier to prove, and the press should be giving them all equal billing.

Now the white house is rattling the saber with North Korea…great another war monger in chief.

Canada is melting, massive methane release could make it melt faster.  Trump must be convinced that the EPA is more than a budget item to be cut.

—————-

why the hell do corporate democrats keep voting for Trump’s Cabinet picks!?!

Call them, make them feel our anger, make sure they know they are going to get voted out of office for this.

Something strange is happening with Lindsay Grahm….he wants to require people to release their tax returns if they want to run for office.  He is certainly not alone, or the first. And I think that he is motivated by his hatred of Trump, but still way to go Lindsay.

——————-

Military Officers are resisting Trump’s attempt to be the arbiter of patriotism.  Many presidents have hidden behind dead soldiers to make themselves look better.  But what Trump did with that poor woman, and her dead soldier was disgusting.

Bernie should have been president, and maybe one day he will be, but in the mean time he is busy helping the American people.  He will join the Nissan march to help auto workers get a union.

Even though we didn’t win the special election in Connecticut, we did show that people are very fired up, this momentum is growing.

Meanwhile in China, coal use is down and solar is up 82%.  Call your senator and tell them this.  Tell them you don’t want to be left behind as the rest of the world moves to clean cheap renewable energy.  We can’t be left behind as the rest of the world modernizes its energy system while we sit here being run by big carbon.

———————

They can’t stop all of us, lets flood Ron Jonson’s office with calls letting him know we want him to have a town hall meeting with his constituents.

Via:

Senator Ron Johnson [R-WI/Twitter/email/DC office (202) 224-5323] is one of the many Republican lawmakers who’ve chosen not to meet with their own constituents during the Congressional recess; Earl Good, a Vietnam veteran and Milwaukee constituent who called Johnson’s office hundreds of times because the Senator won’t meet with the people he represents has now been sent a cease-and-desist letter threatening legal retaliation if he doesn’t stop contacting his elected official.

Dear Mr. Good:

This Cease and Desist letter is to inform you that any further communication from you to U.S. Senator Ron Johnson’s office can only be done in writing. This means that you are not to call or visit any of Senator Johnson’s staff or any of his offices at any time. Our office has done all that we can to assist you with your concerns. This letter acts as written notice of our expectation for you to discontinue your unwarranted telephone calls and office visits. If you fail to comply with this notice, then we will have no other alternative but to contact the United States Capitol Police and report your noncompliance.

Sincerely,

Staff

Ron Johnson’s staff U.S. Senate

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 41

Trump Still President:

 

President Donald Trump's first major speech to Congress

President Donald Trump gives his first major speech to Congress, capping off his first 40 days.

Posted by Vox on Tuesday, February 28, 2017

(session starts at about 22 min) Trump went before a joint session of congress, and lied his ass off.  In fact almost every single thing he said that involved a major policy matter was a lie.  Someone must have sent around the word that this would be a clap happy speech, because Trump got roaring applause for the most mundane nonsense.

I found it particularly despicable that he used a dead soldiers wife as a prop.  Considering by all accounts he decided to do this raid half assed, and then blamed everyone but himself for it.

To me it sounded a lot like the kind of thing a right wing fascist dictator might say, but I could be biased.  He says almost exactly nothing, while promising the moon.  Its just another one of his campaign speeches.  Is he going to do this every couple weeks to feed his fragile ego?

—————

The earth is warming rapidly, and Trump doesn’t even believe in global warming.  The permafrost is melting, there are tornadoes in February, Chicago had no snow this year, and Scott Pruitt is busy dismantling the little protections we do have in place.  Scott Pruitt must go, global warming must be taken seriously, Trump must listen to us or our future is going to be grim.

———————-

217 protesters at Trumps inauguration face up to a decade in prison.  This is a simple violation of free speech.

——————

The house republicans are just as corrupt as Trump, they have voted once again to keep vital information secret about the president.  Why do they protect him?

——————-

The president gets privacy for his crimes, but the administration may release the personal information of immigrants and foreign visitors.  Why not just make them wear a yellow star?

——————

Even the press doesn’t get privacy in Trump’s white house, Sean Spicer has been caught listening in on private calls from the press.

——————–

While Trump is on tv saying how proud and free we are, Mosques are burning, and Jewish cemeteries are being vandalized, and Jewish community centers are being sent bomb threats.  Minorities and immigrants are being imprisoned, and detained.  Trumps america only works for the super rich white people.  Just ask the people of Flint who must now start paying for their drinking water, even though it is still too toxic to drink.

————–

These things are happening because the Democratic party has been taken over by corporate democrats, who don’t care about the working class anymore.  They must be removed and replaced by real progressives.

—————–

Every time you heard the words “voter ID” just remember that voter ID laws are profoundly racist.

—————-

The new FCC chair thinks that net neutrality is a “mistake” that has to be fixed.  This will kill the internet, and make it nearly impossible for anyone who is not a huge corporation to participate in the internet.

—————–

Trump is keeping us safe by keeping the Tibetan women’s soccer team from playing here…we are giving up our quality of life, our freedom, and our connection to the rest of the world, for nothing.  These people are not terrorists, they are soccer players.

————-

——————-

It seems that every aspect of Trumps campaign is designed to enrich his big corporate buddies, at the expense of you and me.  He is willing to play around with food safety as a bargaining chip, the food that you eat, and your children eat.

————-

————–

 

The Resistance!

Bernie could have been our president.  Lets make sure he is the next one.  In the mean time we need to keep helping him fight.  He is working to lower drug costs, and is fighting for the working class.

——————–

Science March! April 22nd!

Women’s General Strike March 8th! (international Women’s day)

Peoples Climate March April 29th!

——————

Over 120 generals are against Trumps plan to increase the military budget.

—————–

We can push these corporate democrats into action, keep fighting!

————–

In a subtle but real snub, some supreme court justices skipped Trumps speech.

—————-

So many protesters are visiting Marco Rubio’s office that the owner of the office has asked him to move some place else!  Ha ha ha, lets do this to EVERY republican and EVERY corporate democrat.  If they wont work for us, lets make their life miserable until we can vote them out of office.

—————

Don’t want to see federal agents arresting people for Marijuana?  Then support this bill, call your house rep and have them support it as well.  Weed jobs are good jobs.

——————-

Trump has signed executive orders encouraging the budget for historically black colleges, to increase women in STEM jobs, but the congress has no plans to fund any of it.  Give them a call and make them support their own president in these actual good ideas.  My guess is that Trump realized that he could sign these orders, take credit for caring about these groups, but rest safe in the knowledge that the congress wouldn’t give any money to support them.  Its a sham, but its one we should call them on.  Make them put their money where their mouth is.

————–

Lets get this lady elected!

—————–

Anti Gerrymandering laws are moving forward all over the country, support your local version of this law!

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 40

Trumps Crimes:

229 house republicans just voted to keep Trumps Taxes secret.  What the actual fuck, its like they don’t even care how corrupt this is anymore.  Do you have a republican house rep?  Well then they voted for this, because they all fucking voted for this.  Call them up and give them hell.

—————–

It’s time to starting calling the right wing religious people what they are, the American Taliban.  If they want to control women’s bodies, destroy our school system, teach only their religious view points, and will go to war to do so…you can see how the comparison is apt.  What makes america a good place to live is that we have separation of church and state.  It should stay that way.

Betsy DeVos is the worst of them, she actually praised Jim Crow laws…

——————–

Racist shit bag Jeff Sessions just dropped a 6 year old law suit against a racist voter ID law in Texas.  Just a reminder that Joe Manchin voted for this asshole.

——————-

In Trumps america a crazy white man can shoot two Indian’s and think he was shooting Iranians...Trump says absolutely nothing about this.  But he will go in front of thousands and make up Terror attacks supposedly carried out by refugees that never happened.  Trumps words matter, it is emboldening and normalizing this.  This is not normal, this is not ok!

——————

Trump is going full on tin pot dictator.

———————

Look at the nose grow, seems someone has been lying!  Or maybe its his boss, who now things Obama is out to get him.  Great, we are combining paranoia with all Trumps other problems.   Trump signed off on the phone search at the white house.  Gosh it must be just lovely to work for Trump.

—————–

The DNC can’t even follow it’s own rules when doing internal elections.  Jesus, these people can not be trusted.

————-

Trump wants to cut the EPA, and funding for PBS, so that he can increase the military budget.  Too bad his use of the military so far has been sloppy and half assed.

———————-

Conservatives only ever seem to care about an issue until it affects them, well it is starting to affect them.  Can we impeach this mother fucker already?

——————

27(!) Democrats just voted for the new Commerce Secretary, you might remember the old one had to withdraw from nomination because he was so corrupt, well the new one seems just as bad.  It is unacceptable that almost half the dem’s voted for this shit bag, why don’t you see if you have one of these senators, and give them a call and let them know they should expect a primary from the left next time they are up for election.

Solar now accounts for twice as many jobs as coal.  Why exactly are we still propping up the coal industry with billions in subsidies?  Hey West Virginia, why not move over to solar and wind, a lot less black lung and cave-in danger in those industry.  Oh right, you can’t have those jobs because your senators are all bought and paid for by the coal industry.  Here is an idea, vote them out of office and get someone who will take better care of your state.  Coal is dead, time to move on.  Oil is no better.

—————-

The Florida supreme court has overturned an abortion ban. Which is exactly what they should do, because abortion is legal, and you can’t ban it.  Keep fighting, even if winning takes a long time.

———–

Seems like all of our town hall actions are working, secret president Bannon is getting cold feet about repealing the ACA.  We all know that Trump doesn’t actually make any policy, so this is important. Keep it up!

————-

Even stupid old George W. doesn’t like Trump.  Wont make you feel any better about all the crimes George did, but maybe it will convince some supporters of Trump to double think.

—————-

————–

Lets get Nina Turner as governor of Ohio!

—————

I still love Bernie Sanders…please run again in 2020.

——————-

Looks like if you yell at a senator long enough he will change.  Booker to join Sanders on drug import bill.  Of course it is probably too late at this point, Trump would still have to sign it into law.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 39

Trumps Bad Deeds For Today:

Russia Russia Russia…Trump clearly has some shady business going on there, but lets not get distracted from all the impeachable things he is doing daily.

——————

The FCC reverses Net Neutrality Rules…this is the beginning of the end of a free internet.  The same internet we use to fight against political corruption, the same one that will resemble China’s internet soon, but instead of the government deciding what you can see or not see, it will be big corporations.

——————–

Our president basically just repeats what he hears on Fox news…he is an empty headed parrot.  This should chill you right to your core.  He is a reality TV star, a huckster, and a fraud.  He hasn’t even had an original idea in his life, and he is doing this only to fleece the American tax payer of millions…

———————

Sean Spicer is hunting through white house staffers phones to find leaks, this fact was immediately leaked.  This white house is not functioning as a leadership body.  Impeach the lot of them.

——————

Trump’s nominee for Navy secretary has withdrawn.  Frankly I would too, this white house is a shit sandwich.  But this guy did it because he was too “financially entangled.”  Meaning basically he is so corrupt that even congress wouldn’t have passed him.

—————-

So far Betsy DeVos has been just as bad as everyone thought she would be.

Michigan billionaire Betsy DeVos has been U.S. education secretary for only a few weeks, but already she has shown herself to be exactly what her critics feared. In her brief time running the Education Department she has (among other things):

*insulted teachers at a middle school
*bashed protesters, saying they are “hostile” to change and new ideas
*said she would be fine if the department she runs is shut down
*complained that critics want “to make my life a living hell
*did not participate in the first Twitter chat her department had for teachers on Feb. 21
*suggested schools should be able to compensate for troubles children have at home, such as absent fathers
*had U.S. marshals protect her after protesters blocked her entrance to a D.C. school door
*made a confusing statement about the Common Core State Standards
*made crystal clear that a top priority will be pushing for alternatives to traditional public schools, otherwise known as “school choice.”

Did your senator vote for her?  Now might be a good time to call them up and yell at them.

——————–

This is what america looked like before the EPA…Scott Pruitt is busy demolishing the EPA right now.  Will you breath smoke, and drink poison for Trump?

——————-

The military industrial complex still rules this land, Trump set to dramatically increase its budget…at the expense of the EPA no less.

——————-

——————-

—————

The Resistance!

 

——————


——————-

We got them on the run!  Rubio tells people he is in Europe to avoid town hall.  Keep up the pressure, not just on the republicans, but the corporate democrats as well!

——————

We are going to have to go around the DNC, if they will only support large corporate interests, then we must donate directly to progressive candidates until they are the power in the party.
