This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 52

Trump Watch:


CNN has done us the favor of collecting all their stories about Trumps conflict of interest into one website.


Trumpcare is in such a shambles that half the right hates it for being too nice to the poor, and the entire left hates it for being a thinly veiled tax cut for rich people (which will also kill tens of thousands as it kicks them off health care plan), insane Alaskan Sarah Palin hates it for her own reasons.

Make no mistakes though, the republicans want to destroy health care, and specifically want to attack women’s health care and right to choose.  The giant tax cuts only make the big money people happy, the rest is to appease all the religious crazies in the party.


Trump is escalating the war in Yemen, dropping more drone strikes in a week than Obama did in a year.  Didn’t know we were at war in Yemen?  Got to keep up, we are dropping bombs in seven middle eastern countries.  Including now ground troops in Syria.  All of which was done by Obama, and continued by Trump.  Those bomb and ammo factories need to make quarterly goals!  Just remember, like private prisons, private health care, and now war, if someone is making a profit off it, they will make sure that it continues to grow.


Not only are Trump and his team chronic almost habitual liars…they are also really bad at keeping their lies secret.  Incompetence from soup to nuts.


Trump spends all day watching TV, and all weekend playing Golf…he is not taking the job seriously.


These are the 24 senators who want to take away your privacy online.  Call them and let them know you are not happy with this.


It’s put up or shut up time for Trump’s crazy wire tapping claims.  This is a serious charge and a president can’t go making these kinds of claims without proof.  There can and should be legal repercussions.  It might also turn out that Trump was up for consideration for wire tapping, because he is breaking a bunch of laws…either way its not good for him.


Trump wants to defund the coast guard to pay for the wall….lets home all them sneaky illegals don’t have access to boat or ladder technology.  Trump’s plans are a joke, and he is too.


The CIA is almost certainly starting their own NSA version of super spy systems.


The Resistance!:

Upcoming Marches Against Trump:

April 15 – Tax Strike

April 22 – March for Science

 April 29th – Peoples Climate March

June 11 – LGBTQA+ March on DC


Lets get these people elected!

Seattle has a public election financing system, and some really good candidates are running!

Jon Ossof in Georgia, help out here.

Kathryn Allen is running to kick out Jason Chaffetz. help out here.

Quist in Montana, help here.

Arturo in California district 34, help here.

Mejia for congress in California district 34, help here.



Whats good for the goose…Texas legislator introduces “mens health” bill banning masturbation, in effort to highlight just how stupid most “womens health” bills are.


Nevada is trying to be the latest state to circumvent the Electoral College.  If you live there call your elected officials (see below in the tools section for all the numbers) and tell them to support this bill!  2 time in recent history has the electoral college voted against the will of the people. Both with disastrous effects.


We got em on the run!  Paul Ryan was a no show at his town hall, keep up the pressure!  These sort of tactics get the local news to cover you and raise issues important to you and your community.


you can’t fight something with nothing


ACLU is doing nationwide resistance training, sign up, get moving!


Texas is going to have to redraw its districts because the ones they have now are racist.  This could return democrats to Texas, as the current districts are drawn to make it nearly impossible to get elected.


The UK is having troubles with their privatization experiments, perhaps we should learn from them and not privatize our public infrastructure.


Tools of change:

Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit?  Want to do something about it?

Calling your government representative:

Call your Senator
Call your House Rep (Or use this spreadsheet)
Call your Governor
Call your Attorney General
Or try this website
Fax Congress here (free!)

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.

Phone Bank for Progressive Candidates:


Call the White House:


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).

Do a little Slacktivism:

Send Some Text Messages for progressive causes (I know it says textforbernie, but its for a range of progressive candidates)

Go to a town hall and talk to your congress person in person:

Check when the next town hall is here

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.

See how your elected representatives are voting for or against Trump.

Also be sure to keep track if you live in a district with an upcoming flip-able seat (flip to the left that is)
