This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 51

Trump Destroyed This Today:

The white house has admitted that Trump got his “wiretap” news from Breitbart.  So secret president Bannon can call up his former employees, say “print this” and then he waits for Trump to read it and act without any critical thinking, sure its a round about way to run the president like a puppet, but its a lot less messy than shoving your hand up his ass and working him like a marionette.  Either way its a disturbing insight into just how stupid and easily manipulated the guy with the nuclear codes is.

—————–

Idiot racist Jeff Sessions, who can’t seem to keep from committing perjury, is trying to clean out any Obama era AG’s.  Why?  Maybe so that none of them try to go after him for his crimes?  Maybe he wants a “clean transition.”  I will let you decide.

—————

Mohamed Ali’s son was detained AGAIN this time at a DC airport after talking with lawmakers about….being detained at airports.  This smacks of Trump using DHS and the TSA as his personal goons.  Demanding papers, making airports de-facto check points, this is the road to fascism we are all walking down.

——————-

It’s all falling apart in Washington, when you back these guys into a corner they do dangerous things.  Lets hope they all have the dignity to calmly go to jail for their crimes.

————————

Most people think it was the Russians who hacked the DNC emails (the hacking and what was in the email are two different things by the way, those emails outlined cheating against Bernie, but how they came to light is a different matter), and then released to Wikileaks.

But now it seems like a lot of Trump advisers had contact with both the hackers, and wikileaks.  Certainly seems like the campaign was ready to go right when the news broke, and it sure looks like the Russians did the hacking to help Trump.  And it sure looks like they did it so they could make billions and billions of dollars.  This is all so clearly corruption.  The Russians are not invading, this is not a red scare, this is plutocrats using government to enrich themselves both here and in Russia.

The fact that the DNC was such an easy target, and were doing so many horrible things, is their own fault.  The fact that we all learned about it when we did, seems to be looking more and more like Trump’s fault.

—————–

If you love freedom, and you love Trump, you should love Net Neutrality.

—————–

Trump lied about the job numbers under Obama 19 times, but the first time good job numbers come out for him, he does not.  Trump will lie cheat and steal to get what he wants, no matter how obvious his lies are.

——————-

The republican health care tax cut plan is no big deal according to Paul Ryan.  Can we please replace this idiot the next time he is up for election.

 

The Resistance!

Upcoming Marches Against Trump:

April 15 – Tax Strike

April 22 – March for Science

 April 29th – Peoples Climate March

June 11 – LGBTQA+ March on DC

————————

Lets get these people elected!

 

——————

Scott Pruitt’s office is being flooded with angry calls.  Why you may ask?  Because Scott Pruitt is a stupid climate denier who takes large sums of money from oil companies, and goes on tv and says the dumbest things.  Also his lies may kill you or your children because the climate is falling apart.  If you want to call up Scott Pruitt and tell him you think he should follow the science of global warming, give him a call: 202-564-4700

——————

Way back in the bad old days I was living in Texas when they redrew the districts to screw over a bunch of democrats.  The democrats in state congress at the time actually fled to Oklahoma to try and deny a quorum, the FBI was called in to go arrest them and bring them back, it was a huge mess.  Now those same districts that were fought so hard against, have been ruled unconstitutional!  Fights might take a long time, but if they are worth fighting they are worth fighting for a long time.

————–

Bernie should be our next president.  He is fighting for us now, has been for decades, and will do a much better job than just about anyone else out there.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 40

Trumps Crimes:

229 house republicans just voted to keep Trumps Taxes secret.  What the actual fuck, its like they don’t even care how corrupt this is anymore.  Do you have a republican house rep?  Well then they voted for this, because they all fucking voted for this.  Call them up and give them hell.

—————–

It’s time to starting calling the right wing religious people what they are, the American Taliban.  If they want to control women’s bodies, destroy our school system, teach only their religious view points, and will go to war to do so…you can see how the comparison is apt.  What makes america a good place to live is that we have separation of church and state.  It should stay that way.

Betsy DeVos is the worst of them, she actually praised Jim Crow laws…

——————–

Racist shit bag Jeff Sessions just dropped a 6 year old law suit against a racist voter ID law in Texas.  Just a reminder that Joe Manchin voted for this asshole.

——————-

In Trumps america a crazy white man can shoot two Indian’s and think he was shooting Iranians...Trump says absolutely nothing about this.  But he will go in front of thousands and make up Terror attacks supposedly carried out by refugees that never happened.  Trumps words matter, it is emboldening and normalizing this.  This is not normal, this is not ok!

——————

Trump is going full on tin pot dictator.

———————

Look at the nose grow, seems someone has been lying!  Or maybe its his boss, who now things Obama is out to get him.  Great, we are combining paranoia with all Trumps other problems.   Trump signed off on the phone search at the white house.  Gosh it must be just lovely to work for Trump.

—————–

The DNC can’t even follow it’s own rules when doing internal elections.  Jesus, these people can not be trusted.

————-

Trump wants to cut the EPA, and funding for PBS, so that he can increase the military budget.  Too bad his use of the military so far has been sloppy and half assed.

———————-

Conservatives only ever seem to care about an issue until it affects them, well it is starting to affect them.  Can we impeach this mother fucker already?

——————

27(!) Democrats just voted for the new Commerce Secretary, you might remember the old one had to withdraw from nomination because he was so corrupt, well the new one seems just as bad.  It is unacceptable that almost half the dem’s voted for this shit bag, why don’t you see if you have one of these senators, and give them a call and let them know they should expect a primary from the left next time they are up for election.

 

The Fight Against Orange Bullies!:

SPECIAL ELECTION IN CONNECTICUT!  REGISTER AND VOTE TODAY! Phone Bank!  Feb 28th TODAY!

Science March! April 22nd!

Women’s General Strike March 8th! (international Women’s day)

———————

Solar now accounts for twice as many jobs as coal.  Why exactly are we still propping up the coal industry with billions in subsidies?  Hey West Virginia, why not move over to solar and wind, a lot less black lung and cave-in danger in those industry.  Oh right, you can’t have those jobs because your senators are all bought and paid for by the coal industry.  Here is an idea, vote them out of office and get someone who will take better care of your state.  Coal is dead, time to move on.  Oil is no better.

—————-

The Florida supreme court has overturned an abortion ban. Which is exactly what they should do, because abortion is legal, and you can’t ban it.  Keep fighting, even if winning takes a long time.

———–

Seems like all of our town hall actions are working, secret president Bannon is getting cold feet about repealing the ACA.  We all know that Trump doesn’t actually make any policy, so this is important. Keep it up!

————-

Even stupid old George W. doesn’t like Trump.  Wont make you feel any better about all the crimes George did, but maybe it will convince some supporters of Trump to double think.

—————-

————–

Lets get Nina Turner as governor of Ohio!

—————

I still love Bernie Sanders…please run again in 2020.

——————-

Looks like if you yell at a senator long enough he will change.  Booker to join Sanders on drug import bill.  Of course it is probably too late at this point, Trump would still have to sign it into law.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 23

Saturday time to sleep in, get a good breakfast, clean the house, learn about the failings of our government, and plot to fix them!

Things Trump Ruined Today:

 

Is there no end to this mans evil…he is trying to kill the bumblebee

——-

Some of that “Russian Dossier” on Trump is starting to be proven true.  Most likely the whole damn thing is true, Russia is probably black mailing him.  His cabinet is full of questionable ties to Russia.  Rex Tillerson is the proof (He is going to approve a 500 BILLION dollar oil deal for Russia, and remove sanctions that are destroying the Russian economy).  Russia is also threatening to give Trump Snowden as a gift to gather favor.    Trump most likely has all sorts of business ties and shady dealings with Russia as well.  A good look at his taxes would sort a lot of this out.

Personally I am disturbed by how racist Trump must be to pay a sex worker to defile a bed just because the first black president slept on it, but that is just a distraction.  You have to follow the money.  The presidential office is not a business to be run for the benefit of the president.  Trump seems to think otherwise.

————–

Just a reminder, global warming is real, its going to kill millions if we don’t try and stop it, and Trump doesn’t believe in any of the well supported science on the issue.  You in your silver years, your children, and their children will all suffer because this monster chooses to ignore science in the quest for more money.  Their profits are not worth our lives.

————–

Did I also mention that Trump is an embarrassment on the world stage…Jesus, George W. all over again, start throwing those shoes folks.

————-

 

Republicans and corporate Democrats work for the bank, the bank wants to make more money, they are only too happy to help out, even if that screws you over.  They also don’t give a good god damn about women.

————

Tom Price is going to destroy critical safety net programs that millions of people (mostly elderly) need to stay healthy and safe.  A call to your senator would be a good idea, they must fight him on this.  He also happens to be a homophobic asshole.


The Resistance Works Weekends!

 

General Strike Feb 17!

—————-

March for science April 22!  More info here.

————

Here is a complicated but comprehensive spreadsheet of all the current ballot initiatives to end first past the post voting.  Basically a way to make our election system work better.  See video above for why first past the post is bad.

————–

Trumps tax returns could be made public record, if only the house would get off its ass and do its job.  Give them a call and tell them you want to see Trumps taxes.

————-

The revolt starts at the local level.  Here is Michigan showing us how it works!

————

Bernie sanders should hold classes so other senators could learn how to speak properly on TV.  Note to CNN, you don’t just have to report what the president says, you can actually, you know, do your job and dig up information about things.  Just saying “the president says this” and stopping is not journalism.

—————

It’s never too early to start fighting republicans.  This 10 year old clearly knows more about the world than House Republican Jason Chaffetz. 

————–

The FEC is demanding Trump put up or shut up about his claims that there was massive voter fraud.  Good to know we still have separation of powers and checks and balances.

————-

Impeach Trump NOW!  The fight to impeach trump keeps getting larger, as his approval ratings keep shrinking, talk to your friends and family about impeaching Trump, lets get everyone on board to get this asshole out of office.

—————

Trump has a stink about him, that is getting on all his kids.  Seems no one wants to buy their shitty products, and store after store is refusing to sell Trump brands.  They are dropping them because they don’t sell, but they should anyway, because its a huge conflict of interest for the president and his family to be running private business while in office.

————–

We defeated previous plans to remove net neutrality.   But Trump is trying it again.  The backlash must be huge!  The internet is vital to the resistance, if its controlled by corporate assholes we will lose a vital tool to fight back.

———–

The resistance works world wide, left wingers in Israel might be able to score a huge victory against their right wing leader.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 22

Ugh…The shit just keeps piling up around here, and most of the east coast is stuck under a foot of snow…but you know what, we still fight!  We shovel, then we fight!

Things Trump Broke Today:

More bad news on the cabinet pick front.  Tom Price, insider trader extraordinaire, is now running the health and human services dept. More unqualified robber barons ready to destroy the part of government they control.  It seems like the republican motto is “Government doesn’t work, because we broke it!”

———–

Trumps stupid border wall will cost more than 21 billion dollars and take over 3 years to build…meaning it will be just about time to kick him out of office by the time its finished, and we will have to spend billions more to tear it back down…

———

Trump is signing executive orders to “get tough” on crime that doesn’t exist.  The last time a president (Clinton) “got tough” it ended up exploding the prison population, disproportionately targeting minorities, and the private prison industry boomed.  Could it be that Trump has gotten a bunch of money from the Prison Industryyes he has.

———–

Apparently you can’t go on TV and tell people to buy the presidents daughters stuff, so when you get in trouble for that what does Trump do?  He complains that the law was followed.  Petty lawless thugs are running this country.

Trumps owns stock in pipeline construction companies (their pipelines leak regularly).  His profits are worth more than your drinking water.  Impeachment now!

Fascism and oligarchy go hand in hand.  Now CEO’s or airlines are lobbying Trump to use government power to black their business competition…

———–

We are one large Terror attack away from Trump seizing total power.  Think it couldn’t happen? Think back to all the shit George W. got away with after 9/11.  George W.  almost looks quaint in his corruption compared to Trump.  We must not allow our freedoms to be taken away all because we are afraid.  More people die of bee strings every year than have been killed by foreign terrorist over the last decade, we must not allow fear to win the day!

———-

Other countries are already starting to welcome our best and brightest.  I don’t blame them, if they can’t find work in this anti-science environment maybe they can do some good in another country.  What that does mean is that Trumps dark ages views on science are going to hurt the American Economy.

————

Trumps national security adviser was meeting with the Russians before Trump was even elected…its potentially illegal to talk to foreign governments (especially one that was trying to influence the election) before you are actually given the job.  At the very least it raises serious conflict of interest questions, at the worst it could be treason.

————–

Trump seems to be a walking ethics violation, can we just impeach this idiot already.

————-

This is why its so important to call a lie a lie.  Trumps supports are overwhelmingly in agreement that the “bowling green massacre” (which didn’t happen by the way) is why we need an immigrant ban.

Lies that are used for political gain are called propaganda.  Trump and his cadre of idiots are propagandists, they are lying so they can cheat and steal and destroy.

————

Fuck These Assholes!  Lets Fight!

GENERAL STRIKE FEB 17th!

———-

March In Raleigh tomorrow Feb 11!

——–

Republicans are being met with boo’s and massive angry crowds at their town hall meetings!  Keep it up! This makes them all shit their pants.  It’s only when a thousand angry organized people show up to their meetings demanding change, that anything will get done. Check out this list, or go on your reps website to find out when their next town hall is.

——-

46% the country now things its time to impeach Trump.  Lets get that number to 100%  Tell your friends, Impeachment now!

———-

You can’t stop Elizabeth Warren!  Silence her on the senate floor, and she will just go everywhere else and scream from the rooftops!  Call up your senator and tell them you want them to be like her.

———-

Six patriots players refuse to meet with Trump.  Way to go sports ball!

————-

These veterans are protecting our water, lets help them out.

———-

Bernie is still fighting every day!  He is going to Miss. to help rally for better wages for poor workers.  Lets make sure our senators are fighting as hard as he is.

————-

A lot of seats in Virginia don’t have progressive candidates running!  If you live in Virginia you have until march 30th to register to run for office!  Get in there and make a difference!

————-

The DNC chair vote is soon.  Check here, here and here to get some ideas about how you can help get a real progressive elected as chair of the DNC.

Twenty Days, lets see if we can get lady liberty to a full month under Trump, Keep fighting, keep resisting!

Trump Messed This Up Today:

Racist, homophobic, misogynist,  and all around horrible excuse for a human being Jeff Sessions has been made the Attorney General.  If you live in a state with a Republican Senator, its time to call them up and tell them that you will be voting against them next time, approving this asshole is a new low.

—————

Jesus lord above have mercy on us, Trump is profoundly stupid..unprepared, and manically dangerous.  He didn’t know what the Nuclear Treaty was, had to ask his aids while on the phone with Putin.

————–

The TPP and TTIP are not dead, they just have a new name.

—————

The Trumps are upset they are not making more money from being president, Kellyanne Conway is violating federal law to help them steal more tax payer money…these people need to go to jail.

————

While I am remiss to be distracted by the Russians, Trump still hasn’t released his taxes, so we don’t know if he has ties to them.  In fact we don’t know if they are blackmailing him, bribing him, or something else.  This should still be looking into.

————-

Even Trumps own pick to be on the Supreme court thinks there is something wrong with him. Does this qualify him to be on the court, hell no, but when your friends and your foes both agree you are nutssomething should be done.  Of course, Trump lied about it, and then took to twitter to complain like a child.  Secret President Bannon has got to be loving these distractions from his evil doing.

————–

Ted Cruz is ill informed, and cares not a whit about you or your health care, if he is breathing he is lying.  Remember that whenever you hear him say anything.

————

Trump still hasn’t released his taxes, It’s time the congress force him to.  He also wants to make it legal to buy minerals from warlords, and people who use slaves…  Is this what people in the “heartland” thought would happen when he was in office?  Because something like that only helps the super rich, and fucks over miners here in america, while at the same time destroying the lives of hundreds of thousands of people the world over.

————-

Trump is about to unleash hell on immigrants, Obama started it, Trump is going to finish it.  This can’t be allowed to happen, it will cause untold damage to human life, and our economy.

————–

FIGHT! LOVE! FIGHT! WIN!

Lets get Nina Turner as the governor of Ohio!

———

General Strike!

———

Iowa is fighting the good fight!  If you live around Iowa help them out!  Some of the strongest push back against pipelines has been from Iowa.  Iowa is huge into wind energy, they know whats up there.

———–

Bernie Sanders easily won his debate with Ted Cruz about health care, because there is not really a debate.  The republicans want you to get sick and die, progressives want you to be well.  Call your senator today and tell them you stand with Bernie on a public option, and medicare for all.

————-

Hey look main stream media is catching up, only several years too late. But isn’t that always the way, they never get the courage to speak up until after their profits have been secured.

————-

McConnell silenced Elizabeth Warren on the senate floor from reading Correta Scott Kings letter on the senate floor, so he is going to get it blasted into his house with a megaphone.  FUCK YOU!  (ps.  this is the kind of shit that needs to happen every day, every action from these fuckers must be met with a creative and effective response. )
