This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 84

Trump Watch:

‘The most ill-informed, under-prepared, ethically challenged, and psychologically ill-equipped president in US history’  I would say former foreign minister Gareth Evans from Australia sums it up nicely.  This is how the entire world is viewing Trump right now, and its having a very real affect on our allies confidence in us as a nation.  Trump is an embarrassment that is destroying more than just our reputation, his is eroding the strength of our nation from the inside.

In a historic first the president is going to purposely shutdown the government: Trump threatens a government shutdown if he doesn’t get his way with Congress that his own party controls

Trump: “We’ve just launched 59 missiles heading to Iraq…” Someone needs to hand him a map and ask ‘Which country did you bomb? Point to it.’

Trump on North Korea: “after listening for 10 minutes, I realized it’s not so easy”

Donald Trump recounts eating “the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake” with Xi Jinping while launching missiles “heading to Iraq”

Donald Trump says Nato is no longer obsolete as he thanks alliance members for condemning Syria chemical attack

Remember the 5-yr lobbying ban? White House staffer just got it waived, going to work for a business lobby.

————————

Watchdog Claims They Have Evidence Bannon Was Illegally Paid as Trump’s Campaign Chair. while at the same time it seems that Trump managed to violate even our lax money in politics laws.  Does this surprise anyone?  No.  Is this yet one more reason to Impeach? You bet it is.

Donald Trump Is Still Annoyed That Everyone Thinks Steve Bannon Is the Real President

Trump just made it a lot easier for private companies to drill for oil in national parks...happy 100th birthday national parks!

Racist asshole Jeff Sessions can’t figure out why people are upset about his views on drugs.  Could it be that he only wants to throw black people into private prisons for low level weed charges, and doesn’t actually care about helping people with actual drug problems?

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Is Using His Job to Purge America of People Who Don’t Look Like Him

FBI says Jeff Sessions’ pick for Trump team was an alleged Russian agent

—————————

Ex-MI6 chief accuses Donald Trump of secretly borrowing from Russia to keep his property empire afloat during the financial crisis.  I have been telling anyone who will listen that this is the real connection to Russia.  Trump isn’t a Manchurian candidate he is a horrible con man who is up to his eyes in debt.

Drip Drip Drip, the Russia story just wont go away.

—————————

Trump Says He May Freeze Subsidies to the Poor Until Democrats Repeal Obamacare.  If Obamacare wont die on its own, hold a pillow over its head until it does, is basically the republican strategy at this point.  Their own health care bill which they had 7 years to work on, was so bad it couldn’t even make it out of the house, so they do this instead.

Trump may halt insurer payments to force Democrats to table on healthcare

Donald Trump is coming for your Social Security: How the GOP plans a bait-and-switch to cut taxes — and pensions

—————————–

Congress person from North Carolina, Larry Pitmann, just said Abraham Lincoln was a tyrant like Hitler.  He did so while defending his bill that would outlaw gay marriage.  Can we please kick this asshole out of office?  He is up for re-election next year, surely someone less racist than him could run against him.

Trump Reverses Himself On 6 Major Issues In 2 Days.

Trump flips on four policies in one day

Could we really get him to pull a 180 and go for medicare for all?  Maybe he doesn’t seem to have any particular policy on anything, going where the winds blow, doing whatever makes him most popular in the public eye.  If we can convince him that the only way the american people will love him is to pass “real health care” he might go for it…

———————

He gave her every chance in the world to just say what the dems stand for….and every single time it was like you were asking a turtle to do long division….maddening.

If I run up to any democrat in congress and scream “tag your it, quick tell me what you stand for!” Here is what I want to hear.

“single payer health care, 15 minimum wage, strong environmental regulation, tax increases on the rich, regulation of corporations, union support, money out of politics, pay equity for women, civil rights for all, free college for poor people, moving to 100% renewable energy”

It should fly out of their mouth like they were vomiting. And every day when I read the news I should see that they are introducing bills to do just this into congress, daily, weekly, and monthly.

I want to see them standing in front of crowds fighting for this, I want to see them marching in the streets holding signs with these slogans on them, I want to see them voting in line with these ideals.

It’s not about improving messaging, its about the god damn message!

People are still giving republicans hell at town halls, the latest is Joe Wilson you might remember him as the jackass that was so racist he couldn’t keep from screaming “you lied” at Obama during a state of the union, back when things like that were shocking.  How far we have fallen in the era of the pussy grabber.  Paul Ryan would get the business as well, but he is avoiding town halls, by going to theme parks.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 81

Trump Watch:

The Trump administration has a full time scandal problem.  Mostly because they are all con men and hucksters who only wanted to be president to rob, cheat and steal.

They are like the dog that caught the car, they have no idea how to lead, and are fucking up left and right.  When your goal is to destroy government and steal as much money as possible, things like helping the American people become impossible.

They plan to dramatically decrease the budgets for agencies that do good for the american people every day, and instead give tax cuts to the wealthy, and spend more on the military (which means large weapons companies).  Pathetic and traitorous.

By his own standards of rob/cheat/steal Trump is doing a great job, by any other standards every single day he has been in office has been a huge disaster for this country.

Trump Watch:

Live by the crazy, die by the crazy.  Trump used the white nationalists, and conspiracy theorists to rise to power, but now they are turning on him. If he fires Bannon he will get it from the far right, and the far far far right are already throwing around works like “Illuminati.”  This is why you don’t make a coalition of the nuts to win office.  It’s only a matter of time before this all falls apart for Trump.  Sadly these folks are doing real damage to our country in the mean time.

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)
