This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 60

Trump Watch:

Trumps new budget will make America weak, sick and stupid…so much for those simple hat slogans.  The worst part is that they just can’t keep lying about it.

———————-

He’s done it!  His approval ratings finally fell below 40% to land at 37%…making his approval ratings historically low, but more importantly it means that people who voted for him are starting to regret their vote.  Can we just impeach him already?

———————-

Trump wants to slash NYPD anti-terror funding while the city pays to protect Trump Tower…this mans mind doesn’t work right.

———————-

The White House says after school programs don’t help kids…they are wrong.  But that wont stop them from trying to cut them anyway.

————————-

Chicago army veteran who suffered brain injury after two tours in Afghanistan to be deported…shameful.

 

——————–

Trump could fund homelessness agency for decades if he stopped visiting Trump properties

——————–

Just remember if there is a profit to be made in killing people, they will kill people.  If there is a profit to be made in putting folks in jail, sentences will get harsher, if there is a profit to be made selling oil, then science be damned.   Some things shouldn’t be left to the markets.  Health care, the justice system, and the stability of our climate are three important ones.

These are the people you are dealing with.  Read up, be informed.

If “Ryancare” Is Dead on Arrival, Can We Please Now Try Single Payer?  Republicans say Cutting Taxes for the Rich Will Lower Healthcare Costs and Increase Coverage, but Only Single Payer Has Proved it Can Do Both.   With Obamacare on the Ropes, Progressives Push for Single-Payer System in California

——————–

I don’t know if Bernie should have won, but he certainly didn’t get a fair shake at trying.  And I think even the most die hard Clinton supporters are realizing that she ran a very flawed campaign…Bernie Sanders 2020!

Compiled from Bernie’s March 17th Townhall.

1.) Ask what is most efficient for you to do and get involved. Be creative. Fight back in every way you can think of. And be creative. Be involved in politics in a way you haven’t before.

2.) Come together and talk about the problems that we face, figure out how we go forward. Fight for a progressive vision. Practice civil discourse, hear each other out and learn from each other.

3.) Put pressure on. Know what the state is doing, know what the government is doing, and say to them “Look, these are our needs”. Articulate your needs, and demand that elected officials listen to what you have to say.

4.) Bust the phone lines in Washington DC. Say: “You can’t do that”. Make them listen to their constituents about:

a.) Bernie’s upcoming Medicare-for-All single payer program legislation.

b.) Trumps proposal: Throwing people off of health care, raising premiums, devastating Medicade, defunding planned parenthood, and giving 275 billion dollars in tax breaks to people who need it the least.

c.) Bernie’s legislation that says your pharmacist or you or a distributor should be able to buy medicine from any country in the world where the prices are lower and where that medicine is safe.

d.) Bernie’s idea that public colleges and universities should be tuition free.

e.) Our major water crisis.

5.) Nationalize what you’re doing. Make friends, lobby or petition national organizations that you are part of. Hook up with good people in other states. Develop an opposition to officials not acting in the public’s interests.

6.) Rally, march, or protest to the point where police have to block off access because the city can’t accommodate any more cars. It’s having its impact. When they look out the window they should see masses.

7.) Vote with your wallet and champion these ideas locally: Make solar available all day with home based batteries. Move to the electrification of our transportation system. Champion a quality rail system. Get your communities involved at becoming more energy efficient.

8.) Show up and take over the Democratic party. Walk in and start electing progressive leadership.

9.) Run for school board, run for the board of selectmen, think about running for state legislature.

10). See how much your drugs would cost in Canada and other countries. It may be well worth your while to check that out and deal with it.

11.) Stand together when Trump starts attacking Muslims or undocumented people, or when he lies. We stand with those people who are being scapegoated and tell the truth in the midst of a lot of lies.

Trump’s Crimes:

The number of people who regret voting for Trump is growing, they are starting to see just how badly they were lied to.  I continue to believe that if done right, the Trump presidency could issue in a new FDR style new new deal for America.  The left bullied Nixon into starting the EPA, passing the clean air and clean water act.

We must fight harder now than ever to make sure that we are opposing trumps policies with progressive policies of our own.  We must fight for universal single payer health care, a 15 dollar minimum wage, a clean environment, pay equity for women, free public college, and all the rest.  You can’t fight something with nothing, that was why Clinton lost.

——————

Trump wants to make being a woman a pre-existing condition again.  If you are a woman, know a woman, or care about women, you should be calling your Senator up and tell them to oppose this health care tax cut plan.

———————

Palm Beach mayor says he might have to raise taxes to pay for Trumps constant visiting.  The 10th time in 8 weeks he has been playing golf, spending enough money to feed 6000 hungry seniors for a year on what he is spending in a year on these visits to mar-a-lago so far.

———————

Trump is saying he is working on important things like veterans affairs, but then cancels the meetings and goes golfing instead.

Boo hoo, Pat McCrory can’t get a job anymore.  Maybe he shouldn’t have tried to outlaw trans people in North Carolina.

———————-

Speaking of North Carolina, judges there have reversed almost everything outgoing bigot Pat McCrory and the republican state leaders did before he was kicked out for being a horrible bigot.

———————

Trump has been sued over failing to disclose his correct amount of debt.  Lets hope this leads to him having to release his taxes.

Want to see racist Iowa Rep Steve King lose his job, cancel your spending in Iowa, and make sure they know you are canceling it because of Steve King.

————————-

I will never tire of seeing angry people shouting at their representatives to do their job and represent their views.  Make sure you show up at your rep’s town hall so that they know you want them to represent you.

If they wont show up, make it humiliating for them.

—————–

Jake Tapper seems to have found some sort of backbone, or else the recent polling shows that fighting trump is good for ratings either way, nice to see someone stand up on CNN.

before you get too excited about corporate media.

—————-

Bernie Sanders supporters wont let the DNC get away with sucking so intensely hard. They must be watched like hawks, and even then most of them must go, because they are totally beholden to big money.

DO NOT LET your democrat cave on the supreme court, call them today and tell them to oppose or else!

—————-

Baltimore is about to pass a 15 dollar minimum wage, but of course some large companies, republicans, and even some democrats don’t want that.  If you live there be sure your mayor and all the city council knows you want this.

———————-

If you had to vote (even if its a protest vote) and there was a penalty for not voting, then a legal case could be made that voting must be as easy as possible.  Which is why its interesting that New York is thinking about making voting mandatory.  Personally I think you should get a tax break for voting, elections should all be on the same day, it should be a holiday, and as soon as you turn 18 you should be registered to vote and you should be able to vote in any race and primary.

———————

Republican Senators are feeling the heat when it comes to repealing Obamacare.  Keep it up!

——————–

Bernie should be our next president.  Here he is 20+ years ago predicting the future.  He has been fighting for 40 years for us.

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!

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.

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.

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…

Native Nations March on DC TODAY!

Read more here here here here here here.  Support them by marching if you are in DC!  If not support them with your cash.

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.

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

I love rep Blumenauer, call up your congress person and tell them to support the No Trump act.

Tools of change:

Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit?  Want to do something about it?

Calling your government representative:

Call your Senator
Call your House Rep (Or use this spreadsheet)
Call your Governor
Call your Attorney General
Or try this website
Fax Congress here (free!)

You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.

Tell them in no uncertain terms that you want them to fight to stop Trump from doing these things. Tell them you will be watching them closely on how they vote, and will hold them accountable during the next election if they cave to Trump.  You can also call other states congress people and threaten to donate to their opponent if they don’t do what you want.

Do a little Slacktivism:

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)
