This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 57

Trump Watch:

When Trump was told that the people hurt most under Trumpcare were his own voters he say “Oh, I know”.  This man is a demon, and if you voted for him he would literally let you die from lack of health care so long as it enriches his rich friends and donors….you must rally your peers to remove him from office, call your rep and senator and tell them that not only should they not vote for Trumpcare, they should also begin the impeachment process.   Some republican Senators are already coming out against the plan, we only need 2 or 3 more to stop this horrible bill.

——————

We had better kick him out soon, he is starting to sound like a dictator, saying our constitution “makes us look weak.”  That is some chilling shit coming out of this idiots mouth.  He is just stupid enough to think that.

———————

The new Trump Budget would gut NASA, cut aid to poor Appalachia, climate programs (which they called a “waste of money”) and a bunch of other programs….so we can pay for a fucking wall, and an increased military budget.  This has to be stopped.

Trump could pay for meals on wheels, and the arts, if he would just stop going on fucking vacation every god damn weekend.

——————

Foreign student enrollment is down 40% because they are afraid of Trump.  Scientists are worried we might lose an entire generation of researchers.

—————–

Rex Tillerson is talking about starting a nuclear war with North Korea, but he had to stop his diplomatic visit to South Korea early because he was tired…I can only hope that someone with a brain made him come home before he actually did start a nuclear war with North Korea.  If he really did come home because he was tired after saying that crazy shit…well we need to have a new secretary of state then.

 

——————-

I still don’t understand why the media is treating this Russian thing like its some sort of red scare, this has nothing to do with Russia in particular, its just about very rich people corrupting the political system so they can make more money.  It is petty corruption on a massive scale, the country is not in danger from Russia, its in danger from corrupt Trump!

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 56

Trump Watch:

Trumps second unconstitutional Muslim ban has been overturned.  Trump isn’t happy, but maybe this will teach him something about how the law works.  It should also teach him to keep is stupid orange mouth shut, as its what got him in the most trouble.  The judge in the case was simply, taking what he said as being what he meant.  Something we should all do from now on, take him at his word, and then hold him to it.

—————————

Trumpcare is in big trouble.  I think if we play our cards right… and stay with me now because this is going to sound crazy, but I think we could end up with universal health care if we do this right.  I say the progressive left counter punch with Medicare for all universal healthcare.  We vote so many of them out of office that we can do universal health care.  Remember the EPA, clean air act, title 9, clean water act, were all passed under Nixon.  Mostly because the left was so strong.  We Can Do This.

—————-

Trump is going to cut meals on wheels to pay for the Mexican border wall.  Remember every bullet we buy, every tank, every stupid border wall takes money away from much more important programs.

——————-

The most anti-gay republicans are almost always gay themselves.  Sad really.  If they would just come out of the closet they could just be happy and live a normal gay life.

—————————–

The FBI just briefed top lawmakers on the Russian Trump investigation.  Drip drip drip.

—————————–

Trump’s approval ratings fall even farther.  He really is a monumental fuck up.

———————–

You should still be worried about the NSA spying, and warrant-less wiretaps.

——————

Trump laughs as the world burns…sigh.  We must stop him.

———————–

Trump probably leaked his own tax returns for 2005, because it might have been the only year he actually almost looked like he wasn’t a criminal.

According to a Fox News Poll, Bernie Sanders, Planned Parenthood, and Obamacare are the three most popular things in America.  This says to me that its time for Corporate democrats to get out of the way, and let Bernie and Elizabeth Warren run full steam ahead with a progressive agenda.  America wants it, and they need it.

—————————

Bernie is busy building a 50 state coalition to fight for progressive values.

————————-

The American Trump might be such a huge embarrassment that he got the Dutch to vote against the Dutch Trump.

Big shocker, but states that raised their minimum wage, saw most low income wage earners pay go up….you mean paying people more makes their wages go up?!?  Duh.

San Francisco might be the next major city to divest from oil pipe lines.  Can you hear that?  Its the sound of the carbon bubble popping.  Pull your money out of oil investments now, before you lose the farm when it all collapses.

You can’t fight something with nothing.  We should be countering the right wing populism with left wing economics!   Medicare for all, free college tuition, 15 dollar minimum wage, pay equity for women!

Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) told a man to shut up after he disagreed with the congressman’s vote against the Violence Against Women Act.

At a rowdy town hall in Frost, Texas last week, one constituent asked Barton to work with Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) to sponsor legislation combating violence against women,” The Dallas Morning News reported.

“Given your voting record opposing legislation protecting women from violence, will you make a commitment to us today, make a promise that you will reach out to Congresswoman Jackie Speier and work with her to see this bill successfully through Congress?” the man said.

Barton explained that he voted against the bill because he believes violence against women is a “state issue, not a federal issue.”

The answer earned the congressman boos from the audience.

“Violence against women, that’s a national issue!” one member of the audience shouted. “That’s an issue that impacts everyone everywhere, not only in this country, but everywhere!”

“You, sir, shut up,” Barton snapped, pointing his finger at that man.

The command, however, had the opposite effect on the audience.

“You don’t tell anybody to shut up!” the constituent shouted back. “You work for us!”

There is just something so refreshing watching a bunch of constituents take a representative to task for not representing them.  GO to your reps next town hall and make sure they are representing you!

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 55

Trump Watch:

Rachel Maddow claims to have gotten a copy of Trumps 2005 tax returns. Without the rest of the last 10 or so years though it doesn’t tell us much, and now people are asking if Trump himself leaked this particular year…Just release your damn taxes Donald.

—————–

The FBI will tell us today if they have been investigating Trump, because apparently this is the kind of announcement you have to wait around a couple days to make.  But what we already know is enough to impeach him…so lets get that started.  Call your house rep today!

—————–

Some senior citizens on very low incomes will pay VERY high premiums under the new Trumpcare bill.  Some making 26k will pay 14k in health care costs…almost their entire income.  Too bad for them Obamacare is working just fine.  There is no reason to get rid of it, only improve it.  Or if you are going to replace it, replace it with true, actual, for real, universal health care.

The white house knows how bad Trumpcare will be.  They need to cut all this from the budget so they can pay off their rich donors, and surprise surprise, the republicans no longer care about the debt ceiling now that they are in power, you might remember they once shut the government down because of it.

—————

(Click image above to see it animated)

Secret president Bannon is a racist white power asshole.  This is the person making policy in the white house right now…

Corporate media only cares about ratings.

—————-

Trump is targeting his political enemies.

——————

Rex Tillerson joins the list of cabinet members who have committed some seriously weird, possibly illegal behavior.

——————

Trump is going against all common sense, environmental sense, and economic sense and is going to make cars sold in this country get worse gas mileage, all so you will have to spend more money on gas, and make his oil buddies richer.  This will destroy the climate even faster, while at the same time the defense department is screaming that global warming is going to make their lives a lot harder.  Trump’s rich oil buddies don’t believe in climate change, but our military sure seems to.

———————

Trump is running away from Trumpcare because everyone hates it.  He is trying to blame it on Speaker Ryan.  Speaker Ryan is trying to blame it on Trump.  Our leaders folks.

Bernie is having an influence, it is looking more and more like the seed of change that he planted is going to blossom in California.

——————-

We have a new Corporate democrat target for the primary treatment.    Democratic state Rep. Debbie Rodella of New Mexico continues to basically be a republican in democrat clothing.  Time for her to go.  She has blocked the voting rights law AGAIN in that state that would increase the number of people who can vote in that state.

———————-

The Kansas GOP rep candidate is running from the debates.  James Thompson will be there though, lets get this guy elected!

———————-

Bernie Sanders needs to be our next president.  Its becoming obvious that the DNC made a horrible mistake rigging the system against him and choosing Clinton.

More good news on the Anti-Gerrymandering front.  Virginia is the next state to bring a case to court.

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.

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.
