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.
Trump wants to crack down on Legal Weed, even though it is a huge job creator.
Science March! April 22nd!
Women’s General Strike March 8th! (international Women’s day)
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.
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.
Tools of change:
Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it?
Calling your government representative:
You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.
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. You can also call other states congress people and threaten to donate to their opponent if they don’t do what you want.
Call the “White House”:
Use this 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).
Go to a town hall and talk to your congress person in person:
Monitor your congressperson:
Keep track of how your senator is voting on cabinet picks here, so you can call them up and give them hell if they vote for any of these worthless fuckers.
Also be sure to keep track if you live in a district with an upcoming flip-able seat (flip to the left that is)
