This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 67

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!?

Call Grows for ‘Total Shutdown’ Over Alleged Trump-Russia Collusion.  Personally I would have called for a total shut down over his environmental or economic policy, but whatever gets the job done in Washington.

———————-

DOJ investigating Rep. Duncan Hunter, early Trump backer.  Trump is the political touch of death.  Once the republicans see their members dropping like flies, they will turn on him.  But we must keep the pressure up, call your congress person every single day and complain that they are not fighting Trump enough.

Bernie Sanders, Top Progressives Announce New Medicare-For-All Push

Get out there, make a difference!

Start here, Democrats, Fight for Medicare For All!  Then call your senator, demand medicare for all!

Dear senators, this is how you make the idiots over at CNN work for you.  This is a masterful example of substance over style.  Bernie gets up there lays it out simply, with policy based,  simple language.  HE STANDS FOR SOMETHING!  You can’t fight something with nothing, lets fight it with this!

————————

The 1% should pay tax at 80%

————————-

Lets kick racist Rep. Steve King out of office!  His challenger is ready!

————————-

—————-

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.

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)

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 59

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.

——————-

LA could be the next city to divest!  Get out there and make it happen!
