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.

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
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.

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:

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)

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 37

Things Trump Destroyed Today:

 

(note to other on air “journalists” its still not too late to redeem yourself, look at how much Jake Tapper has come around)

Trump is continuing his war on the media, because he thinks that fascism is cool, and that being a tin pot dictator is “winning.”  You can’t just ban the media outlets that are investigating you.  I say from now on these news outlets don’t even send a reporter to listen to Spicer and the rest of the propaganda arm.  Instead they spend all their time digging up the truth on Trump. When even fox news is going after you, you know you fucked up.

——————

The mercer family, the big money donors that are telling the GOP how to govern.  They were controlling Ted Cruz, and now they are controlling Trump.

—————-

Corporate Democrat Joe Manchin, has basically said “come at me bro” to any progressive that wants to primary him.  If you live in West Virginia, and you want to run a Bernie Sander inspired progressive challenge to this horrible man, I will pledge to give you at least 100 dollars.  I am sure I can get some of my friends to do so as well.  I don’t even live in West Virginia and I would help get a progressive populist in this seat.

——————-

States rights?  Fuck states rights, we have a private prison industry to prop up.  The white house seems to have some very bad ideas about what to do about drugs in this country.

————–

Seems that Trump sent Preibus over to try to get the FBI to stop investigating the Russia connection.  This is potentially illegal, and definitely raises some eyebrows, why do this if you are not guilty of something?

—————-

Immigrants don’t increase crime, in fact they might reduce it…so why are we sending people in to round them up?

—————–

The majority of terrorism in this country since 9/11 has been white right wing terrorism, but the white house can’t seem to get excited when its a white guy killing brown people.

——————-

Immigrants who are serving in our military, people who are literally dying for us have just had protections for their family revoked by Trumps order.

Imagine you are a member of the United States military deployed on the front lines confronting ISIS or other terrorist threats. Suddenly you get a desperate phone call from home — Immigration and Customs Enforcement has arrested your family and they’re facing deportation.

——————

This will surprise exactly no one, but Trump knows dick about China, and is wholly outclassed diplomatically and intellectually by other countries.  We must have someone with a brain in their head running things, or else we will become the laughing stock of the world.

————-

Don’t think it could happen to you, Mohammad Ali’s own son has been detained and forced to prove he is a citizen.  Just remember folks, this is a US CITIZEN with a US PASSPORT being harassed because of his RELIGION. Are you next?  This is already happening in southern states.

The Resistance!

Saturday feb 25th!  Start your own rally to save The Affordable Care Act!  THATS TODAY!!!

Science March! April 22nd!

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

——————-

The DNC votes today, be sure you know what is at stake.  A very important questions that the media is not asking, why is Tom Perez even running?  The big money national consultants are draining all the money from the state parties, and Tom Perez is simply being run to keep that money train flowing.

——————-

Even fox knows Trumps war on the media is fascist clap trap.

——————-

George W. Bush’s daughter is fighting to save Planned Parenthood.

——————

State department insiders are leaking memos telling them how to stop leaking.  We must support these internal resistance fighters!

—————-

Do not let your democrat off the hook, show up at their town hall and make sure they know you want them to fight for us!
