This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 26

Jesus…with friends like Joe Manchin who needs enemies.  This mother fucker has got to be replaced.  I suggest everyone call up his office,   202-224-3954, and tell him that you will be donating money to any progressive opponent that runs against him.  If you are in his state (West Virginia), then feel free to tell him that you are going to vote him out of office.

Things Trump Destroyed For Future Generations Today:

 

——–

The Senate has confirmed Mnuchin as treasury secretary, putting Goldman Sachs officially in charge of the government (again).  Mnuchin is a criminal, an asshole, and has horrible policy ideas.  Trumps america is going to be a grim grim place to live.  All the Dem’s voted against him except for…JOE MANCHIN!  Who also voted for Rex (CEO of Exxon) Tillerson as secretary of state…and every other cabinet pick except for the obviously unqualified DeVos.  He needs to lose his next election.

————-

It should surprise no one that Trump is a raging hypocrite, hiring foreign guest workers for his business instead of giving those jobs to hard working Americans…I hope everyone who voted for him takes a good hard look at behavior like this.

———-

Republicans just don’t work for you, they just voted to de-fund the agency that fights election hacking…and Evil henchman Chris Christie just vetoed a  bill that would keep cops from being able to steal from you and not tell the world what they stole. 

———–

The leader of Trumps EPA thinks climate change is a “religious belief.” You, your children, and your grandchildrens very lives are in danger before of these sort of idiots running the EPA. Be it through lead in your water, pollution in the air, or climate change killing you in a myriad of different ways. If we don’t do something about this now the best case scenario is that you don’t die, but millions upon millions of other people do.

———–

Trump has got to be the least sneaky bad guy in history.  I mean he is clearly too stupid to pull off his own evil plots

———-

 

The Resistance!

General Strike FEB 17TH!

————-

Call your rep to help save the ACA!

————–

Flynn has been forced to resign, he is not even the most corrupt member of Trumps cadre, but this is how we get rid of them, one at a time until they are all gone.  Next up, his cabinet, then Trump himself.  The lot of them end the presidential term in jail.

————–

A Federal judge has ruled that the debate commission has unfair rules.  This could be a big deal to get more parties and more people into the debates. 

————-

Tens of thousands are rallying against Trumps deportation force.  We need constant protest and people in the streets until the government bows to our demands.  You can help fight these evil policies.

————–

Even the mainstream media is starting to grow a spine, don’t think for one second they wont cave if it means they would make more money, but its good to see them put up a weak fight.

—————

Trump likes to do this stupid machismo handshake where he pulls people’s arms hard to show some kind of stupid bone headed dominance over them.

Justin Trudeau isn’t having any of that shit.

Of course Bernie knows whats up.

————-

Whats this…are the democrats…fighting?  Fighting back!?!  Call up your rep and demand impeachment now!  Don’t let them fuck this up, because they will.  The republicans are paid to do evil shit, the democrats are paid to do nothing about it.  Don’t let them rest a minute.  The corporate democrats are just as much our enemies as the right is.

———–

Trump still hasn’t released his taxes.

———–

There is a Berniecrat running to replace Pompeo in Kansas…maybe we should send a message that the first congregational election under Trump go to a progressive.

————–

Senators and reps all over the country are fighting back.  Lawmakers in Nevada want to outlaw fracking, and raise the minimum wage!  Bernie is still out there fighting!

Shipping Death And Destruction To The USA Via Pipeline

We have already talked about the absolute insanity and global warming death that is the Canadian tar sand oil (here here here and here)…but it would seem that our government is a pack of raving morons (honestly I can’t think of any other reason, I mean it couldn’t be because they are in the pockets of large oil companies could it?) because they have just approved a freaking giant pipeline to ship dirty (well more dirty than normal oil which is pretty bad in it’s own right) Canadian tar sand oil to the hungry cars of the United States.

Luckily a few people seem to have retained some sense of sanity because they are suing the federal government.

I just wanted to give you a heads up that today Sierra Club and a coalition of environmental groups filed suit over the Department of State’s decision to approve a pipeline carrying dirty tar sands oil from Canada to the United States.

On August 20, the Department of State approved Enbridge Energy’s Alberta Clipper Project, a pipeline that will stretch from northern Alberta to Superior, Wisconsin and pump 450,000 barrels per day of tar sands crude–the dirtiest form of oil on earth. We’re very disappointed by this decision. More proposed pipelines, like TransCanada’s Keystone XL project, are now seeking similar permits, and Secretary Clinton still has a chance to prevent us from getting locked into a dirty energy infrastructure for years to come.

Early in his Administration, President Obama stated, “We can let climate chance continue to go unchecked, or we can help to stop it.” Clearly, approval of the Alberta Clipper pipeline by the Department of State does not fit into his vision of a clean energy economy.

Here’s a little more background:
-The Alberta Clipper is proposed to run through Chippewa National Forest and Leech Lake tribal lands, negatively affecting 200 water bodies, 1,200 acres of upland forested lands, 650 acres of open lands, and 1,300 acres of wetlands. More information on tar sands oil impacts–along with photos–can be found here: http://www.dirtyoilsands.org
-A full life-cycle analysis of Canadian tar sands oil shows that it emits three times the amount of carbon than conventional crude. This fuel has the capacity to destroy Canada’s Boreal Forest, ruin natural habitats, and heavily contribute to increasing air, water, and global warming pollution. What’s worse is that there is little data available on the impact of future potential leaks and spills on migratory birds and water pollution.
