This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 58

Trump Crimes:

Trump still hasn’t released his taxes, but if he wants to run for office again (at least in New Jersey) he will have to, Chris Christie still has to sign it into law, so if you live there you might want to give him a call and tell him to do just that. New Mexico, Hawaii, Oregon and California are also considering similar laws, if any of them successfully become law, it will be defacto law everywhere.

——————

Former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort might be part of corruption in Ukraine.

——————

Trump is using the tax payer as his personal piggy bank.  He is spending his 7th consecutive weekend at a trump-branded property, at huge cost.  His supporters can’t seem to believe it, but its true, he is taking millions of our tax payer dollars, and funneling it into his own pockets.  Trump still hasn’t donated hotel profits from foreign governments yet.

——————–

Trump is firing his political enemies because they were going after trump Cabinet members. Preet Bharara was investing Tom Price for insider trading when he was fired.

———————

Trump has huge ties to private prisons.  This is terrifying if you are an immigrant, or poor, because you could be part of some private companies profit margin.  If putting you in jail will make a big company more money, and Trump is beholden to them…you could end up in jail.

———————

Trump’s budget, and his policies are going to hurt his voters the most, and his voters are the ones who need the most help.

 

———————

Trump is an international embarrassment.

———————

Betsy DeVos continues to screw over students, this time students with loans in default.

———————

New Mexico, one of the sunniest places in America, is about to have its government shut down because it is not getting enough revenue from oil and gas.  Maybe next time you build up a thriving solar industry and use all that extra electricity to make money.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 33

Trump’s Terrible Tuesday:

Trumps economic promises are lies.  He is actually going to destroy the economy, not make it better.  Any gains will go to the super rich, while the rest of us suffer.

————-

Trump is preparing executive orders to allow his big business buddies to pollute your air and water.  This will give someone in america cancer, and will lead to the deaths of some more American’s.  Will you be that person?  Will it be your child?  Regulation has a purpose, and in this case the regulation is to keep you safe and healthy.  If there are any Trump supporters reading this, do you think the health of you and your loved ones is less important than the profit margins of a large company?

————-

Trump spends the time he is not watching Fox news, golfing.  Seems he has gone a week without a security briefing.  He doesn’t take this job seriously.

————–

Trump is using the American Tax payer as his personal bank account.  Spending more in a month, than Obama spent in a year.  He is not a king, he can’t just waste our money.

——————

Big oil is fighting back against electric cars, spending millions to punish electric car drivers in a desperate attempt to hold onto their gas profits.  So free markets work, until they put you out of business for being old news….seems capitalism is really more about the super rich rigging the rules to keep their profits secure.  You should be calling your state reps and senators about this if you are a lefty who cares about the earth, or on the right who cares about free markets.

———-

Trump had a plan to give Ukraine to Russia, and lift sanctions on them…you don’t think he is working for them?

—————

 

 

The Resistance!

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

Science March! April 22nd!

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

—————–

Trump supporters seem to live in a different world.  They don’t understand why the rest of us don’t like him.  If you know a Trump supporter, reach out to them, talk to them.  Make sure they know you don’t like Trump, but that you are fighting him because you do like them.  We fight against Trump because the world can be a better place, and we are the ones who are going to help it get there.

—————-

Hey look, journalists, doing journalism.  Way to go NPR.  Maybe the rest of the industry will get jealous of all the good stories you dig up and start doing real journalism again.

—————-

Bernie is still out there fighting!

—————

Members of all parties in the UK don’t want Trump to visit.  They mostly site that he is a horrible cunt, and that he can piss right off with that shit.  If you don’t live in America and you want to fight against Trump, call up your elected officials and tell them you don’t want them to support Trump.  March in the streets, and vote with your dollars, don’t buy anything from Trump, or his cronies.

—————

Thousands march in “not my” Presidents day marches.

—————–

The Electoral College is not long for this world, if you want your state to get rid of this crazy system (which has elected George W. and Trump…)  Call your senator and tell them to join in  the intrastate compact to remove the electoral college.

—————–

Here’s the thing right wingers never get.  You have the right to free speech, but you don’t have the right to avoid the consequences of saying horrible shit.  You can go on TV and say any nasty thing you want about anyone, but don’t be surprised when you lose your book deal, and no one wants to have you on their TV show anymore.  You CAN say anything you want, but SHOULD you?

—————-

Anti-pipeline protests are springing up everywhere, join your local anti-pipeline protest now!

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 23

Saturday time to sleep in, get a good breakfast, clean the house, learn about the failings of our government, and plot to fix them!

Things Trump Ruined Today:

 

Is there no end to this mans evil…he is trying to kill the bumblebee

——-

Some of that “Russian Dossier” on Trump is starting to be proven true.  Most likely the whole damn thing is true, Russia is probably black mailing him.  His cabinet is full of questionable ties to Russia.  Rex Tillerson is the proof (He is going to approve a 500 BILLION dollar oil deal for Russia, and remove sanctions that are destroying the Russian economy).  Russia is also threatening to give Trump Snowden as a gift to gather favor.    Trump most likely has all sorts of business ties and shady dealings with Russia as well.  A good look at his taxes would sort a lot of this out.

Personally I am disturbed by how racist Trump must be to pay a sex worker to defile a bed just because the first black president slept on it, but that is just a distraction.  You have to follow the money.  The presidential office is not a business to be run for the benefit of the president.  Trump seems to think otherwise.

————–

Just a reminder, global warming is real, its going to kill millions if we don’t try and stop it, and Trump doesn’t believe in any of the well supported science on the issue.  You in your silver years, your children, and their children will all suffer because this monster chooses to ignore science in the quest for more money.  Their profits are not worth our lives.

————–

Did I also mention that Trump is an embarrassment on the world stage…Jesus, George W. all over again, start throwing those shoes folks.

————-

 

Republicans and corporate Democrats work for the bank, the bank wants to make more money, they are only too happy to help out, even if that screws you over.  They also don’t give a good god damn about women.

————

Tom Price is going to destroy critical safety net programs that millions of people (mostly elderly) need to stay healthy and safe.  A call to your senator would be a good idea, they must fight him on this.  He also happens to be a homophobic asshole.


The Resistance Works Weekends!

 

General Strike Feb 17!

—————-

March for science April 22!  More info here.

————

Here is a complicated but comprehensive spreadsheet of all the current ballot initiatives to end first past the post voting.  Basically a way to make our election system work better.  See video above for why first past the post is bad.

————–

Trumps tax returns could be made public record, if only the house would get off its ass and do its job.  Give them a call and tell them you want to see Trumps taxes.

————-

The revolt starts at the local level.  Here is Michigan showing us how it works!

————

Bernie sanders should hold classes so other senators could learn how to speak properly on TV.  Note to CNN, you don’t just have to report what the president says, you can actually, you know, do your job and dig up information about things.  Just saying “the president says this” and stopping is not journalism.

—————

It’s never too early to start fighting republicans.  This 10 year old clearly knows more about the world than House Republican Jason Chaffetz. 

————–

The FEC is demanding Trump put up or shut up about his claims that there was massive voter fraud.  Good to know we still have separation of powers and checks and balances.

————-

Impeach Trump NOW!  The fight to impeach trump keeps getting larger, as his approval ratings keep shrinking, talk to your friends and family about impeaching Trump, lets get everyone on board to get this asshole out of office.

—————

Trump has a stink about him, that is getting on all his kids.  Seems no one wants to buy their shitty products, and store after store is refusing to sell Trump brands.  They are dropping them because they don’t sell, but they should anyway, because its a huge conflict of interest for the president and his family to be running private business while in office.

————–

We defeated previous plans to remove net neutrality.   But Trump is trying it again.  The backlash must be huge!  The internet is vital to the resistance, if its controlled by corporate assholes we will lose a vital tool to fight back.

———–

The resistance works world wide, left wingers in Israel might be able to score a huge victory against their right wing leader.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 22

Ugh…The shit just keeps piling up around here, and most of the east coast is stuck under a foot of snow…but you know what, we still fight!  We shovel, then we fight!

Things Trump Broke Today:

More bad news on the cabinet pick front.  Tom Price, insider trader extraordinaire, is now running the health and human services dept. More unqualified robber barons ready to destroy the part of government they control.  It seems like the republican motto is “Government doesn’t work, because we broke it!”

———–

Trumps stupid border wall will cost more than 21 billion dollars and take over 3 years to build…meaning it will be just about time to kick him out of office by the time its finished, and we will have to spend billions more to tear it back down…

———

Trump is signing executive orders to “get tough” on crime that doesn’t exist.  The last time a president (Clinton) “got tough” it ended up exploding the prison population, disproportionately targeting minorities, and the private prison industry boomed.  Could it be that Trump has gotten a bunch of money from the Prison Industryyes he has.

———–

Apparently you can’t go on TV and tell people to buy the presidents daughters stuff, so when you get in trouble for that what does Trump do?  He complains that the law was followed.  Petty lawless thugs are running this country.

Trumps owns stock in pipeline construction companies (their pipelines leak regularly).  His profits are worth more than your drinking water.  Impeachment now!

Fascism and oligarchy go hand in hand.  Now CEO’s or airlines are lobbying Trump to use government power to black their business competition…

———–

We are one large Terror attack away from Trump seizing total power.  Think it couldn’t happen? Think back to all the shit George W. got away with after 9/11.  George W.  almost looks quaint in his corruption compared to Trump.  We must not allow our freedoms to be taken away all because we are afraid.  More people die of bee strings every year than have been killed by foreign terrorist over the last decade, we must not allow fear to win the day!

———-

Other countries are already starting to welcome our best and brightest.  I don’t blame them, if they can’t find work in this anti-science environment maybe they can do some good in another country.  What that does mean is that Trumps dark ages views on science are going to hurt the American Economy.

————

Trumps national security adviser was meeting with the Russians before Trump was even elected…its potentially illegal to talk to foreign governments (especially one that was trying to influence the election) before you are actually given the job.  At the very least it raises serious conflict of interest questions, at the worst it could be treason.

————–

Trump seems to be a walking ethics violation, can we just impeach this idiot already.

————-

This is why its so important to call a lie a lie.  Trumps supports are overwhelmingly in agreement that the “bowling green massacre” (which didn’t happen by the way) is why we need an immigrant ban.

Lies that are used for political gain are called propaganda.  Trump and his cadre of idiots are propagandists, they are lying so they can cheat and steal and destroy.

————

Fuck These Assholes!  Lets Fight!

GENERAL STRIKE FEB 17th!

———-

March In Raleigh tomorrow Feb 11!

——–

Republicans are being met with boo’s and massive angry crowds at their town hall meetings!  Keep it up! This makes them all shit their pants.  It’s only when a thousand angry organized people show up to their meetings demanding change, that anything will get done. Check out this list, or go on your reps website to find out when their next town hall is.

——-

46% the country now things its time to impeach Trump.  Lets get that number to 100%  Tell your friends, Impeachment now!

———-

You can’t stop Elizabeth Warren!  Silence her on the senate floor, and she will just go everywhere else and scream from the rooftops!  Call up your senator and tell them you want them to be like her.

———-

Six patriots players refuse to meet with Trump.  Way to go sports ball!

————-

These veterans are protecting our water, lets help them out.

———-

Bernie is still fighting every day!  He is going to Miss. to help rally for better wages for poor workers.  Lets make sure our senators are fighting as hard as he is.

————-

A lot of seats in Virginia don’t have progressive candidates running!  If you live in Virginia you have until march 30th to register to run for office!  Get in there and make a difference!

————-

The DNC chair vote is soon.  Check here, here and here to get some ideas about how you can help get a real progressive elected as chair of the DNC.

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.
