This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 70

Trump Watch:

All issues pale in comparison to the climate.  With a healthy stable climate we will have hundreds of thousands of years to figure out all our other problems.  Without a healthy stable climate, the entire civilization of humanity is doomed.  Trump has ordered the Energy Department Climate office to no longer use the words “climate change” and pressured a bunch more public agencies to do the same.  His solution to climate change, put his fingers in his ears, then put his head up his ass.

Bernie sanders says everything I want to hear in this interview, he is dropping truth bombs so hard that the earth shakes.

 

THIS IS MADNESS!  If Trump went on tv and said “I am going to kill 2/3rds of your children next week” There would be an obvious uproar, and the entire country would kick him out of office so fast his head would spin.   Well when he says climate change is a hoax, and that he is going to do nothing about it, just remember what he is really saying is “I am going to kill by neglect millions perhaps billions of people in the future.”

Trump’s EPA Just Greenlighted a Pesticide Known to Damage Kids’ Brains

The science of global warming is real, and its as serious as death.  WE MUST STOP HIM.  Call your senator, call your rep, call your governor.  DEMAND action on climate.  Demand they push back on Trumps agenda, DEMAND a future for you and your children.

—————-

—————

But if you don’t care about the future of humanity, there is still plenty of shit about Russia going on.  It is pretty clear at this point that Trump is in bed with Russia, and he is doing so for reasons of money.  Can we just impeach his dumb ass already?

—————

Because A: Trump is too stupid to do the job on his own, and B: Nepotism is fun.  Ivanka Trump is going to be a federal employee now.

—————-

Trump is going to destroy the EPA by a death by a thousand cuts.  Keep a list of how your rep is voting, make sure to hold them accountable, they need to hear from you.

FDR faced opposition in the party over the New Deal, including from his own VP John Nance Garner, who he decided to drop from the ticket before running for a third term in favor of more liberal Henry Wallace.

Upon witnessing Dems at the convention try to block Henry Wallace’s nomination as VP, he drafted this letter turning down the nomination.  It was never sent.

July 18, 1940

Members of the Convention:

In the century in which we live, the Democratic Party has received the support of the electorate only when the party, with absolute clarity, has been the champion of progressive and liberal policies and principles of government.

The party has failed consistently when through political trading and chicanery it has fallen into the control of those interests, personal and financial, which think in terms of dollars instead of in terms of human values.

The Republican Party has made its nominations this year at the dictation of those who, we all know, always place money ahead of human progress.

The Democratic Convention, as appears clear from the events of today, is divided on this fundamental issue. Until the Democratic Party through this convention makes overwhelmingly clear its stand in favor of social progress and liberalism, and shakes off all the shackles of control fastened upon it by the forces of conservatism, reaction, and appeasement, it will not continue its march of victory.

It is without question that certain political influences pledged to reaction in domestic affairs and to appeasement in foreign affairs have been busily engaged behind the scenes in the promotion of discord since this Convention convened.

Under these circumstances, I cannot, in all honor, and will not, merely for political expediency, go along with the cheap bargaining and political maneuvering which have brought about party dissension in this convention.

It is best not to straddle ideals.

In these days of danger when democracy must be more than vigilant, there can be no connivance with the kind of politics which has internally weakened nations abroad before the enemy has struck from without.

It is best for America to have the fight out here and now.

I wish to give the Democratic Party the opportunity to make its historic decision clearly and without equivocation. The party must go wholly one way or wholly the other. It cannot face in both directions at the same time.

By declining the honor of the nomination for the presidency, I can restore that opportunity to the convention. I so do.

FDR knew what was up….maybe we should send copies of this to every democrat in government.

Trump Watch:

(this video from 2009, once again Bernie got it right, and got it right first)

Trumpcare seems to be dead (not for lack of trying),   so dead in fact that states are now going to continue to expand medicaid.  Way to go Trump!  Now lets take this same logic, and expand universal health care to everyone.  Single payer medicare for all!

————————

For reasons only the oil companies know, Trump continues to try and kill us all with global warming.  Preparing to sign an executive order removing the clean power plan.  If I were you, I would call your senator and tell them to pass a bill making the clean power plan a enforceable law.

Russian Youth From Moscow to Siberia Slam ‘Putin the Thief’

Hundreds Arrested During Anti-Corruption Protests in Russia

There are massive protests in Russia right now, and Putin is cracking down horribly on them.  Trump has remained silent.  We know he has his twitter ready at all times, but instead many many hours later we get a statement from the state department.  Stay classy Trump, you spineless coward.  A timeline of events that unfolded during the election appears to support the FBI’s investigation into Trump-Russia collusion

———————

Nearly one out of every three days he has been president, Trump has visited a Trump property.  Why you may ask?  Because it personally enriches him, he is basically spending tax payer money at every business he owns.  Its a giant con game.

——————–

GOP intel member Trey Gowdy threatens to hide future Trump/Russia hearings from the public.  You may remember Trey Gowdy as the guy who did all the Bengazi hearings…he certainly wanted to keep them public.  I wonder what has changed.

——————–

The fight over Keystone XL is just getting started.  Oil companies know that they are almost done, with solar and wind rapidly approaching prices that will destroy their business.  But they still have a lot of money, so they are bribing politicians in a last gasp attempt to keep their business afloat.  Who cares if it kills millions in the process, got to make money right!?

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!
