Day 307:

Things To Call Your Senator About Today

Tell them to vote NO on the disastrous tax cut bill, make sure to mention that if they do vote for it you will not be voting for them.

Tell them to do SOMETHING, ANYTHING to stop the FCC from destroying net neutrality. Again mention that if they don’t you wont be voting for them.

Think like a Utopian, Fight like a Whirlwind.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 12

Trump fancies himself a king.  He wants to do whatever he wants whenever he wants.  America doesn’t have kings.  We will stop him, he will thank us when its all over, because the world we are going to build will be better for everyone, even him.

Trump Crime Watch Day 12:

The governments top lawyers have been fired for refusing to go along with Trumps insane immigrant ban.  So have the acting head of the Immigration and Customs.  This is what everyone in government should do.  They must constantly defy and refuse to break the constitution for this madman.   Far better to get fired, or resign, than be complicit in the destruction of this country.  If you go along with Trump you become part of the machine distributing Fascism.

U.S. President Donald Trump fired top federal government lawyer Sally Yates on Monday after she took the extraordinarily rare step of defying the White House and refused to defend new travel restrictions targeting seven Muslim-majority nations.

It was another dramatic twist in the unusually raucous roll-out of Trump’s directive that put a 120-day hold on allowing refugees into the country, an indefinite ban on refugees from Syria and a 90-day bar on citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

The Friday night ban prompted protests and chaos at airports on the weekend as customs officials struggled to put the order into practise, and the fallout spread to U.S. markets on Monday, where stocks suffered their biggest drop of 2017 and companies affected by the change spoke out against it.

Yates said late on Monday that the Justice Department would not defend the order against court challenges, saying that she did not believe it would be “consistent with this institution’s solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right.”

That right there is a true american patriot. Thank you Sally Yates for standing up for what is right.  To give you a little context the last time this happened was under Nixon, and we remember what happened to Nixon.  I know i have linked to the same article three times now, but holy shit you have to read it a couple times, the state department is circulating a memo of dissent, major tech companies are supporting court action against the ban, people didn’t learn about this ban until the media reported it and the entire government is up in arms.  Trump didn’t even make it two weeks in between he caused a constitutional crisis.  His ban has affected 90,000+ people.  They also handcuffed and held a five year old boy as a national security threat…these people are deadly idiots.  This will destroy our relationship with the few remaining people who like us in the middle east.  Remember Obama, and Bush, and now Trump, have been killing and bombing in the middle east for decades now, and now Trump is saying you can’t even send us refugees from the wars we had a hand in starting.

 

For those not sure what this ban is really about, watch this.

————-

Trump supporters are feeling so emboldened by their hateful leader that they are murdering Muslims.  This is what happens when the most powerful man on earth spews hate, it makes all these animals feel like their hateful feelings are valid.  Now people are dead.  What the president says has real world consequences, but Trump doesn’t seem to understand that he can’t just lie with every breath, and spew hatred with every word.

————-

Good thing Trump is looking into voter fraud by hiring a person registered to vote in three states.  There are also rumors that Trump asked his own supporters to vote twice…which should have ended him up in jail.  The point is the only vote fraud going on his from Trump and his cronies.  This whole “vote fraud” emergency is to sooth his ego at loosing the popular vote, and the evil cronies surrounding Trump are using his fragile ego to promote republican style voter suppression on a national scale.  History has seen this before, and the same things that won back our freedoms then will do so now.

————

Bannon is trying to make sure that history will never find out all the criminal shit Trump and gang are doing.  This is both illegal, and a clear sign that they are doing things that will get them tossed in jail if we were to know.  Start filing law suits now, we must be able to know what our elected officials are doing.

From the US Holocaust Museum.  Read it and wonder if we might be there right now.

We have to stop Trump from ruining the internet!

Trumps energy plan will be very bad for American business.

Join The Resistance!

People are fighting back and they are winning!  Join in!

There is a march to make Trump release his taxes and its going to be big!  There is the Science march too.  Oh and people are going to protest at Mar a Largo in Florida.  Trump gets no vacation, ever.  No matter where he goes, we will be there to tell him we disapprove. Get your signs made, and go scream your truth to power!

————

Our barrage of phone calls have got the Dem’s in congress properly frightened of the people again.  They plan on filibustering the supreme court nominee.  They also need to be convinced to do a lot more.  KEEP CALLING THEM!  It worked on Schumer…sorta, still think he needs to be primary-ed, but he is doing better.  KEEP CALLING!

You need to be keeping a list of all the things your congress people do between now and the next time they are up for election, and if they are not progressive, then vote them out!  No more evil republicans, no more corporate democrats!

————-

For those of you us who have never lived through a general strike, a general strike is when EVERYONE goes on strike, in essence you shut the whole fucker down for a day.  The calls for a general strike against trump have been going, and when it happens there will be hundreds of millions of people in the streets, and reporters will be asking what our demands are remember you represent the people, not the billionaires. Tell them you want to money out of politics, carbon out of the energy industry, serious global warming policies, universal health care, a living wage, pay equity for women, and free public college, regulating the banks.

————

1000’s of progressives are standing up to run for office!  Be part of the wave of progressive politicians taking back the government for the people. Join the justice democrats and take back the people party and make it work for the people again.

————-

Want to see the house in the hands of the left come 2018?  Get involved!  Be sure to vote in the most progressive people you can.

————-

Pornhub posted a video of the inauguration with the title “white man fucks entire country at the same time”  Even porn can be a weapon against Trump.

————-

Ranked choice voting could help third parties get started, until they are widespread its basically political suicide to try to start a third party, if you want more parties, you need to support this regulation.  Until then lets take over the Dem’s and make them a party for the people again.

——————————————————————————————————-

Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit?  Want to do something about it?  Call your Senator, and your House Rep. and 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.

Use this awesome website to call one of Trump’s many properties he has not put into a blind trust yet, and let them know how you feel (be polite, they are workers just like us, but be firm).  You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.
