This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 69

Trump Watch:

The republicans in the house and the senate have just voted to allow large internet companies to sell your browsing datato basically anyone they want.  They also no longer have to tell you if they have been hacked.  So now your data is as good as public, either because they are just going to sell it to any advertiser, government, or rich pervert they want.  Or someone will just take it, and they wont have to tell you that it has been taken, you will probably find out when the credit card bills arrive for things you didn’t buy.

House of Representatives votes 232-184 to do away with Broadband Privacy. If your Rep. voted for this bill, it is time to let him or her know that they lost your vote.

The 265 members of Congress who sold you out to ISPs, and how much it cost to buy them 

Every single congress person who voted for this bill is sending a message to you. (Senate, House, it was all republican by the way) That message is “FUCK YOU!”  If you are not their big money donors, they could give a single fuck about you.  So why don’t we try to vote them all out of office.  See how they like that?

If you don’t know what a VPN is, now might be a good time to google it.

Don’t worry though the media is still screaming about Russia, as the republicans dismantle America.

How you may ask?

Donald Trump Ends “War on Coal” by Declaring War on Breathable Air

Trump Mexico Wall: WH Calls for Domestic Cuts to Pay for It

Trump removed LGBT rights from federal employees.  Which will allow contractors to legally discriminate against LGBT people…he did this with an executive order.  Meaning he personally thinks its ok.

Trump omits even counting LGBT people in america.

Legal resident shot by ICE agents in his Chicago home.  The brown shirts have already started shooting the citizens.

In ‘Apprentice’ defamation case, Trump will argue he is immune from lawsuits in state courts until he leaves office.  You’re the president, not the dictator, you don’t become immune from justice until you are out of office.  If this sort of reasoning stands we have just elected our first king.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ABOUT THE PEOPLE’S SUMMIT 2.0

“What has consistently unified us is a common vision of opposition to policies of austerity and neo-liberalism, and solidarity in supporting each others’ work on health care, environmental, racial, social, and economic justice, and breaking the corporate grip on our political and economic system” –RoseAnn DeMoro, executive director, National Nurses United, a major convener of the event.

“I am excited to join the chorus of conscious, committed voices at the 2017 People’s Summit. There is no force more powerful than a community on the move for justice. We will protest, we will plan and we will preserve in the building of political power from the ground up. This is our moment” – former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner

“With our institutions of liberal democracy severely eroded and fascism knocking at our front doors, the time is now for activists, organizers, and Berniecrats to come together and imagine an America and world that looks far beyond the horizon of establishment politics as usual” – Winnie Wong, People For Bernie

“As a student-led labor solidarity movement, United Students Against Sweatshops recognizes the importance of political and economic power for workers on our campuses, in our communities, and within our government. Students are proud to be a part of this courageous movement to continue building power for working people” – Troy Neves, United Students Against Sweatshops

“The current political climate is threatening the very fabric of our democracy. Fundamental rights like access to healthcare and the protection of our air and water are under attack. Ensuring a just future for America will require a broad, resilient grassroots movement that puts people over corporate profits. This is what the People’s Summit will work to support” – Wenonah Hauter, executive director, Food and Water Watch

“The People’s Summit brought the fledgling people’s movement together last June, and that was transformative. The opportunity to engage proactively with others who believe in social justice, climate sanity, peace and equality gave us tremendous lift and focus during a period when that was essential. Silos crumbled, new alliances were forged.  We are ready for more at PS 2017” – Donna Smith, executive director, Progressive Democrats of America

“President Trump exploited long-standing racial divisions between working people to gain power, when we know he’s packed his cabinet with the same characters who rigged the economy. We all need to team up and fight back, and pro-corporate Democrats aren’t doing that effectively. The People’s Summit helps us make the alliances we need against capitalism at its worst” – Maria Svart, national director, Democratic Socialists of America.

“A radical, racist right wing that cares more about profit than people or our planet is in power in Washington and most of our state capitals. We have joined millions of Americans in resistance, from congressional town halls to airport protests to shareholder meetings of corporations like Disney that have abetted and are complicit in this right wing’s rise. But with our allies in the 2017 People’s Summit we are moving beyond resistance to a political revolution; from protest to power. We will advance a new movement politics that will recruit, elect and co-govern with a slate of candidates who will put people and our planet before profit.” — George Goehl, co-director, People’s Action

“The people need to get together so the people need a summit! We all know that progressive positions are actually the most popular political positions in America. The Peoples Summit gives us a chance to come together, understand our strength, rally, and make plans for the future” – Josh Fox, filmmaker

“What do you get when you bring real progressives, women of color, and young organizers together under one roof? The People’s Summit – a gathering of the some of the most powerful leaders of the resistance. Looking forward to building and scheming towards justice and equality for all Americans.” – Linda Sarsour, activist

“We don’t have time to please donors and discuss 20 year plans. We don’t have time to play politics to please special interests. Our democracy is at stake and the only ones who can reclaim it are we, the People. The People’s Summit is where we build our blueprint and action plan to save our Republic. You can’t buy back democracy, you have to fight for it.” – Nomiki Konst, journalist

“In the face of one of the most fascist, racist, women hating, worker oppressing, earth destroying, anti-life regimes, the gates have come down. We are angry, we are united, we are ready and we know our time has come. Now we just need to create the new progressive vision, tactics and plan – the Peoples Summit has all the right people, energy  and ingredients to make that happen.” – Eve Ensler, playwright, activist

The DNC is reshuffling.  We will know if they are serious or not about shaping up the party depending on who they keep and who they let go.

Corporate dem’s have got to go!  You can’t lie to the people to get elected and then serve big business the moment you get into office.  Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh just did that by saying she would support a 15 min wage, and then vetoing this bill.

Being Anti-Trump Isn’t Enough. Silvio Berlusconi’s tenure reminds us that the Left needs to attack the neoliberal center, not just the populist right.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 48

Trump’s Daily Fuck Ups:

Literally no one likes the new republican health care plan, the AARP just came out against it, doctors, as did basically everyone else.  Here is the thing the republicans never know how to govern, they are only good at keeping others from governing.  They never had a plan, and now that they revealed “their plan” its clear there are no serious thinkers in the room over at republicans head quarters.  I want you to really understand this, the republicans don’t and can’t govern because they are 1000% the mouth piece of big business and large money interest.  The reason why 95% of the democrats can’t govern is because they are beholden to the exact same big money interests.

The reason why Obama care wasn’t single payer, or medicaid for all is because the big money didn’t want it.  Everything wrong with Obama care was put there by big money.  And now that same big money doesn’t want republican plan because it will take away the money train.  We do need to change our health care system, and it shouldn’t be repealed, but instead fixed.  Medicaid universal health care for all!

——————-

Meanwhile Trump and friends are busy destroying the future of this planet.  This must be stopped, or it will kill the future.

——————

Trump still has not released his taxes.  And its becoming clear that he is keeping them secret because they show he is a criminal, or has links to criminals.

——————-

American citizens are being detained because of the way they look.  If you are are brown in the middle of the country you might get arrested just because you look brown….jesus christ this is a disaster.

——————–

American States are starting to sue the federal government over the travel ban.  Hawaii is first up.  I would hope that we can get some more states to do the same.

——————–

The thrashing and craziness around trumps insane behavior continues. 

——————–

Got kids in school?  Care about education?  Want smart people working with you?  Then maybe you should call up your senator and tell them you want them to fight Betsy DeVos and her crazy ideas.

——————–

The CIA can and is hacking your phone, if you feel bad about this call your senator and demand they take action.

———————

Mexico is ramping up the trade war Trump started…which will hurt all of us.  Meanwhile China is basically bribing Trump by granting him trademarks so he can continue to make large sums of money from his companies that are not in blind trusts.  He might be violating anti-corruption laws with these foreign deals.  IMPEACHMENT NOW.

———————

When Mike Pence de-funded planned parenthood, there was a massive outbreak of STI’s and HIV, one of the biggest ever in America.

Give Planned Parenthood some cash to show them you support them.

Ben Carson is not qualified to be in charge of anything, he must go.

————————

There is a special election in Montana, and the GOP is pouring in money to defeat the progressive candidates.  You don’t spend 700k unless you are worried you might lose.  If you live in Montana, register and vote for Rob Quist.  If you don’t live in Montana, give him some cash.

————————-
If corporate democrats back the presidents supreme court pick, they should be replaced.  Call your senator and tell them this.  That is a stolen seat and it should be a liberal on that court.

—————————

Bernie will be in Boston, get your tickets now!  He will also be in West Virginia (fuck you Joe Manchin).

——————-

Tulsi Gabbard introduces bill to end federal Marijuana prohibition.  Call your house rep and tell them to support this bill.  This matters, because the republicans are busy trying to ramp up private prisons.  In a system that is already highly racist.

—————

Hillary Clinton’s message was basically “I am not Trump.”  Next time around we need to be much more specific about our values, our policies, and we need a candidate like Bernie Sanders who will fight hard for them.
