This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 62

Trump Watch:

Well holy shit…everything seems to be going bad for Trump all at once.  Frankly I am surprised it took this long for the entire house of cards to crumble.

You got your Russian shit show, Your budget shit show, your Trumpcare shit show, your false claims of wiretapping shit show.  The FBI director is testifying that he was under investigation, poor poll numbers, there are Russian gambling rings at Trump tower, family corruption, at this point the list of things to impeach him on is about a mile and a half long, small font, double sided pages.

Meanwhile in other countries Rex Tillerson the “I didn’t want this job” of lying former Exxon Mobile CEO’s didn’t show up to a UN human rights hearing…what the hell, how quickly are we going to end up being a world pariah.

Paul Manafort is in big trouble.  Which means Trump is probably in big trouble.

Donald Trump’s former campaign manager ‘tried to hide $750,000 payment’, says Ukrainian politician

Hacked text messages allegedly sent by Paul Manafort’s daughter discuss ‘blood money’ and killings, and a Ukrainian lawyer wants him to explain

Sen. Mark Warner: We have to talk to Paul Manafort

Paul Manafort, secretly worked for a Russian billionaire to advance the interests of Russian President Vladimir Putin a decade ago, signed a $10 million annual contract beginning in 2006

Remember how the Republicans like to scream VOTER FRAUD!  as a way to take away voting rights (mostly from minorities and people who don’t vote republican), well look at this…Former Colorado GOP chairman Steven Curtis charged with voter fraud.  Seems the only one doing voter fraud around here are the GOP chairmen.

Do you ever wonder why you don’t just file your taxes on a government website for free?  Filing Taxes Could Be Free and Simple. But H&R Block and Intuit Are Still Lobbying Against It.  Tell your congress people that this is foolish, and wastes millions of tax payers money every year.

Kentucky just passed a law discriminating against LGBT people, and allowing religious texts in school.  Time to boycott Kentucky products just like we did with North Carolina when they passed their anti-Trans laws.

Two Ohio coal-fired plants to close, deepening industry decline.  Coal is not going to come back, time to go all in on renewables.  Make sure your congress person know you want no more fossil fuels in your state.

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!

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!
