Tag Archives: Kick out the corporate Democrats

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 57

Trump Watch:

When Trump was told that the people hurt most under Trumpcare were his own voters he say “Oh, I know”.  This man is a demon, and if you voted for him he would literally let you die from lack of health care so long as it enriches his rich friends and donors….you must rally your peers to remove him from office, call your rep and senator and tell them that not only should they not vote for Trumpcare, they should also begin the impeachment process.   Some republican Senators are already coming out against the plan, we only need 2 or 3 more to stop this horrible bill.

——————

We had better kick him out soon, he is starting to sound like a dictator, saying our constitution “makes us look weak.”  That is some chilling shit coming out of this idiots mouth.  He is just stupid enough to think that.

———————

The new Trump Budget would gut NASA, cut aid to poor Appalachia, climate programs (which they called a “waste of money”) and a bunch of other programs….so we can pay for a fucking wall, and an increased military budget.  This has to be stopped.

Trump could pay for meals on wheels, and the arts, if he would just stop going on fucking vacation every god damn weekend.

——————

Foreign student enrollment is down 40% because they are afraid of Trump.  Scientists are worried we might lose an entire generation of researchers.

—————–

Rex Tillerson is talking about starting a nuclear war with North Korea, but he had to stop his diplomatic visit to South Korea early because he was tired…I can only hope that someone with a brain made him come home before he actually did start a nuclear war with North Korea.  If he really did come home because he was tired after saying that crazy shit…well we need to have a new secretary of state then.

 

——————-

I still don’t understand why the media is treating this Russian thing like its some sort of red scare, this has nothing to do with Russia in particular, its just about very rich people corrupting the political system so they can make more money.  It is petty corruption on a massive scale, the country is not in danger from Russia, its in danger from corrupt Trump!

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!

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 38

Trump Continues To Be President:

The attack against net neutrality has begun.  You must contact your senator and make it clear to them how important this is.  Without net neutrality the internet will die.

——————-

In a tale as old as time, the Republicans are going to try to pass tax cuts for the rich, while claiming they are helping the poor.  Only one of those things is true (hint: republicans don’t care about poor people).

————–

Holy fucking shit…sources say that the U.S. might pull out of the United Nations human rights council…what the fuck is Trump thinking?  Call your senator about this, especially if they voted for Nicky Haley.

————–

The Corporate idiots over at the DNC have voted for Tom Perez as their new head…sparking outrage among progressives, and generally showing they only care about money.  They even violated their own rules about secret ballots, so that we can’t even know who to vote out these idiots.

Time to do an end run around the DNC.  Lets start our own party apparatus, and simply cut out the big money interests.  We will give money directly to progressive candidates, lobby for them, volunteer for them, and cut out all cash flow to the DNC. Once they are starved of their cash they will come crawling back to us.

—————-

It’s important to keep reminding ourselves, just how much Trump lies.  If he is speaking, he is lying.

————–

Trump and his friends are rotten to the core, now new reports have come out that he and his staff have ties to right wing European fascists.

————-

Looks like Scott Pruitt lied under oath, lets remove him from head of the EPA, now.

————–

Trump wants to crack down on Legal Weed, even though it is a huge job creator.

Grass roots organizers help win a special election in Delaware keeping the state blue!

Hansen’s campaign received huge support. More than 1,000 volunteers worked during the course of the campaign, and about 500 ? many from nearby states ? showed up Saturday for Election Day. Hansen received more than 14,000 contributions of less than $100 from small donors spread all over the country.

“That’s more volunteers than I’ve had in nine elections,” exclaimed state Sen. Dave Sokola (D), of Hansen’s Election Day workers.

We can’t stop fighting though, Connecticut is next!

There is a shadow party apparatus growing here. If the DNC and the establishment wont or cant stop eating at the corporate money table, these grass roots groups will grow up and take their place.

When we fight, we win! People want money out of politics, they want a return to the grass roots strategy, they want to stop paying hundreds of millions to big DC lobby groups and instead send that money to the states.

There is a clear track record for the last 10 years in the democratic party, and its one of losing. The Dem’s just lost an election to the most hated candidate in political history…its because they have basically become republicans. They fight for the rich, and not for the people. Given the choice between a republican, and a republican, people will choose a republican.

We must return the democratic party to its working class, liberal, socialist roots. The party of FDR, the new deal party, the trust busters, the people who fight to expand rights for everyone.

In short: Kick the corporate democrats out, elect progressives, impeach Trump. When that is done, kick money out of politics, and re-instate the new deal, with universal health care, and taxes on the super rich.

Its not complicated, but it is hard.

—————

Hit them in the wallet!  Breitbart has lost almost all its advertisers.  Which is good, because Breitbart is owned by a bunch of rich right wingers, who want to ruin America.  Maybe we can find ways to hurt them economically in other ways.  General boycott of their industries?

—————

Resist in every way you can.

—————-

I don’t know if its because none of the celebrities said they would be there, or because Trump’s fragile ego can’t handle being made fun of, but it seems Trump might skip the white house correspondents dinner.  Can we finally stop having this thing, the press and the president should be at each other throats, not getting chummy in high priced hotels.

————–

Ha ha, someone pranked CPAC by giving people Russian flags.  Conservatives need to do their homework.
