Day 226:

I was on vacation

Went and got out into nature, and did some work with my hands. Refreshing to say the least.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 29

Almost to day 30 and no impeachment.  I am almost proud of Trump, except I am not, not at all.

Things Trump Did Wrong:

Trump has lost his mind…not figuratively.  Pretty much everyone else thinks so as well.  If you had any doubts about Trumps tenuous grasp on reality, or that he is deeply unfit for this job, just watch his own rambling crazy town speech above.  His current approval ratings are at 39%…a historic low at this point in a new presidents term.

Are the republicans in the house paying attention?  They are supporting a man whose policies are political and corporate poison.  If you support him, you will lose your next election (that goes for you too corporate democrats).  Your safest bet is to impeach the lot of them now, you know they are all crooked, so why are you waiting?  Why are you putting your own political life in jeopardy?  Or right because you’re all a bunch of craven corporate shills.  This might have gone over during Obama when everyone had their head in the sand, but Trump has woken people up, and they are fighting back now.

—————–

Trump is going to try a second crack at that Muslim ban.  He hopes this one will make it past the judges.  But that hasn’t stopped him from rounding up people and deporting them already.

—————

Trump has not had any security briefings since Flynn resigned.  My guess is he is too preoccupied with what people say about him on TV to be interested in the security of America.  The person he tapped to replace Flynn said (and I am paraphrasing)  “Hell no!”  He actually said something about Trump’s White House being a “shit sandwich.”  No joke…leave it to an ex-marine to be a straight shooter.

The last president who consistantly ignored security briefings was George W.  Which is why 9/11 happened…

—————

Trump STILL hasn’t released his taxes.  He really should.

Senator Warren Giving A Speech on the Nomination of Scott Pruitt

A few hours ago, a judge in Oklahoma ordered the release of thousands of emails about EPA nominee Scott Pruitt’s relationship with Big Oil. Republicans must be worried about what’s in those emails, because they’re jamming through his nomination tomorrow – just FOUR DAYS before the emails will be released! Those emails may show corruption – but we already know that Scott Pruitt always sides with the corporate polluters and has no business as head of the Environmental Protection Agency. I’m speaking on the Senate floor now to strongly oppose his nomination and to share the stories of Massachusetts residents who are worried about what his nomination means for our environment and our families.

Posted by U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren on Thursday, February 16, 2017

Its 99 degrees in Oklahoma in Feb, the arctic is 50 degrees above normal, and Manhattan sized chunks of ice are breaking off Antarctica.  Trump is trying to appoint a climate denier as head the EPA, and thinks global warming is a hoax made up by China.  Laugh all you want about how stupid he is, this ignoring of climate change will kill hundreds of millions of people, maybe even you.

————–

Betsy DeVos’s brother is setting up a private army for China?  Where does trump find these people?

—————-

Tom Perez the establishment candidate for DNC chair, STILL supports the TPP, even after Hillary was against it.  Lets make sure he doesn’t win.

—————–

We can’t allow the Deep state to destroy Trump, it has to be the American people who destroy Trump, then we clean out the military/industrial/spy complex, the corporate democrats, and rebuild this country for the working person.  Russia is not the enemy.  Greedy Trump and his billionaire cronies are the problem.

————–

Trump doesn’t give a shit about Palestine. 

————–

Gerrymandering must be stopped, call your senator and tell them you demand fair districts.

THE RESISTANCE!

 

GENERAL STRIKE FEB 17!

GENERAL STRIKE!

Women’s General Strike March 8th! (international Women’s day)

——————

Are you paying attention Corporate Democrats, you will not win if you continue acting like this.

Lets call Chuck Schumer and tell him that we want him to get other people to be more like Bernie, not that Bernie needs to calm down.

—————

As Trump moves to make social security weaker, Bernie fights on!  Call your senator and make them support Bernie’s bill.

—————

California is trying to make election day a holiday!   More voters voting is the good!

—————–

Trump is trying to end Net Neutrality.  This can not happen, it will break the internet, call your senator today!

—————-

Even asshole big pharma bro-dudes are being protested!  People are awake now mother fuckers!

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 25

Lets get to it, Mondays are for resisting!

Things Trump Did Today:

who dug up this blank eyed Nazi and put him on TV…terrifying.

———–

Trump is stripping transgender protections, just days after lying about supporting LGBT rights.  Are we surprised, no, is it another lie, yes, is this ok HELL NO!  Call your senator now and demand they fight this.

————-

To assuage his fragile ego Trump will not visit the UK until its parliament is out of session.  Why you ask?  Because the UK parliament refused to meet with a racist shit gibbon like Trump.  Mostly because they understand what many here have not, Trump is a joke.

————–

He also can’t decide if he is tired of winning loosing,  or just doesn’t know how to run the government.  He may or may not challenge the immigration ban, it is changing by the hour.

————

American citizens are being detained at the border until they give the government all of their personal details, including the passwords to their phone…what the fuck is this?  And in case you are wondering if there was perhaps anything more important the government could be working on, 43% of american children are in families that can barely afford the most basic needs.

————–

There is a new lying shill Trump is parading in front of the news.  His name is Stephen Miller, and he may be the most fascist mouthpiece yet trotted out.  Is this how this is going to go, where ever worse propaganda mouthpieces, saying ever stupider things, are paraded in front of the media?  His latest fun statement is that Trumps power “will not be questioned”  The dictator finally shows his stripes.

————

The Resistance Is Strong!

It seems like the entire country of Mexico is protesting Trump.   Lets show them we can protest even better!  General Strike Feb 17th!

———–

Fight Trump with Mockery, not violence.

———–

Bernie Sanders is doing town halls and speeches all over the country, West Virginia tried to shut him down, he might have the meeting in the middle of the street instead!

He will also be in Kansas, already having sold out the smaller venue!

————

Flynn is coming under more and more pressure for ties to Russia.  Give your senator a call and tell them to drain the swamp of Trumps cabinet by getting rid of these guys using the god damn law.

————

Republicans are not the only ones getting angry crowds at their meetings.  Corporate Democrats are getting large crowds of angry folks showing up as well.  Go visit your congressperson at their next town hall.  When you are filming these protests, be sure to follow these great tips, so that you can get that video out asap and rally support for your cause.

———

Everything maters, resist him on the beaches, in the streets, and in the government using the laws that already exist.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 18

It has been less than 20 days…but it seems like a year.  Stay strong, stay smart, stay fighty!

Here are Trumps Fucks-Ups For Today:

Is Trump so much of a puppet, that he doesn’t even read the things he is signing?  It seems no one briefed him on the order he signed to put Steve Bannon on the security council.  I guess secret president Bannon really is running the show around there.

———-

While Trump plays the clown to distract the nation, the Republicans in Congress just introduced a bill to ELIMINATE the EPA.  The agency that keeps your air and water clean.  Call your house rep and tell them they had better vote against this bill or else.

———–

Not that any of us thought he would take it seriously but the white house petition site is broken.  If Trump Co. can’t even keep simple IT infrastructure working, how are we to trust them with anything.  (I know they broke it on purpose, but the point still remains, these people only know how to break things, not fix them).

———–

In order to push through nationwide vote suppression laws, Trump is still lying about illegal voters.  He lies, and lies and lies, and all it does it expose his fragile ego, and the fact that republicans can’t win on ideas, they must cheat.

————

Trumps EPA Pick lied under oath.  Can’t be confirmed for a million reasons, but this is a super good one.

———–

In what can only be described as a tantrum, Trump continues to attack the idea that we have checks and balances in this country.  He would wipe his ass with the constitution if they didn’t keep it locked up.  Donny, if a judge overrules your order, you have to go to congress to get a law passed, you are not the king, you can’t just wave your hand and make things so.

———–

 

The Resistance Grows!

—————

Part of that is making sure states don’t pass laws criminalizing free speech.  If you live in one of these states call your government and tell them you will vote them out if they pass these laws.

GENERAL STRIKE FEB 17th!

No Work, No Money Spent, Lets Shut This Mother Fucker Down!

—————-

America doesn’t built walls, we welcome the huddled masses.  Companies know this, go buy a 2×4 from 84 lumber, attach a flag to it and put it out in your front yard.

————

Republicans themselves are starting to turn against Trump, we welcome them to the resistance!  

————

US veterans have vowed to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline, thousands have also rallied in the streets.  If the brave men and women who defend our country will go out and stand in the bitter cold to save our future from global warming, the least you can do is call both your senators and your house rep and tell them you will vote them out of office if they don’t stop these pipelines.

———–

The only way to get this country back on track is to have a real opposition party again.  The corporate Dem’s must go!

———–

Our boycotts and civil actions are working.  Uber founder has distanced himself from Trump, next up Tesla and Elon Musk.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 17

Sunday, a day to rest.  Its also a day to fight!  The resistance is mobilized, and has been fighting back strong.  Make a couple calls today as you go about your day, call up your bank, tell them to divest from oil pipelines, call up an advertiser you saw on a right wing website, tell them to stop, call up your friends and organize a call chain so you can maximize your power.  Bake some bread, have a good meal with loved ones.  Recharge, because this fight is a marathon, and we need to go the distance!

Things Trump disappointed Lincoln on today.

In a move that surprises no one, Trump is breaking his promise to clean up wall street and instead giving the government to them.

————-

Trump blocked nearly half a million people from getting health care.  If you live in the middle of the country and you supported Trump, did you support him so he would take away your health care?

————-

Trump is not a good president, even Sweden is mad at us now.

————-

 

RESIST! FIGHT! WIN!

 

GENERAL STRIKE FEB 17th!

————

————

These cowardly republican fucks are running scared from the public who demand universal health care.  Maybe getting rid of Obama Care isn’t such a good idea after all?  Maybe instead we should be improving it by adding a public option or transitioning it away from private insurance to universal health care like…every other industrialized country has.

———–

Massive resistance is growing within the federal government against Trump!  These hard working public servants are going to need our support.  If they get fired, you will have to fight with them to get their jobs back, if they take principled stands we have to call our congress people and support them.  They might be able to fire the deputy director of whatever, but we can fire them if they do!

————

Tuesday you can watch Bernie Sanders wipe the floor with Ted Cruz in a debate about health care.  Super strange that now that the orange Cheeto of doom is in charge, and the corporate media profits are secure we get these in depth political shows on CNN.  Whereas before the election is was basically 24/7 political TMZ….Corporate Media Is The Fake News.

————-

Donald Trump is a man who cares about things like crowd size, hand size, penis size, and bank account size, this proposed boycott of the annual correspondents dinner is the perfect thing to drive him nuts.

————-

Proving that we still have three functioning branches of government, Trumps bigoted, useless, Muslim ban has been stayed.  And the even though Trump is picking on the Judge who did it, everyone knows the truth.  The president is not a king!  Call your senator and demand they fight Trump on this.

————-

We still have to stop Betsy DeVos and the rest of the cabinet picks!

Call your senator and make sure they know you will vote them out if they vote her in.

————–

We will give him no quarter, no rest, and no safe harbor!  Everywhere Trump goes protest! It’s fun, it’s effective, and it drives him crazy.

————-

If you want to get Secret Preident Bannon out of office try making some calls!

The Senate Committee on Homeland Security is taking calls about Bannon’s appointment to the NSC. You can call 202-224-4751 and leave comments opposing this appointment.  The 15 Senators on the committee are taking calls on this matter from the general public. Also call your Senator

———–

Sometimes resistance starts on the subway.  Tiny things can make the world better.  Never stop making things better.

Manhattan subway gets covered in Swastikas on every advertisement. One guy got up and said, “Hand sanitizer gets rid of Sharpie. We need alcohol.” The passengers all reached into their bags and pockets looking for tissues and Purel and got to work.
