Trump Watch June 9 2017

Day 141:

Watch The Bird’y:

These republicans are a real barrel of shit.  While everyone else was watching the former FBI director give testimony about our current president’s attempts to obstruct justice, they republicans in the house were busy repealing Dodd-Frank.  Dodd-Frank, you may remember was passed after the 2008 financial crisis and was itself a watered down version of Glass-Stegal (who’s repeal many think caused the recent economic meltdown).

These mother fuckers are absolutely set on destroying the entire world, so that their big money donors can get what they want (which is more money).  It’s the most short sighted of plans, and is bound to fail, and yet they do it over and over.

Much like the debacle in the UK for May and the conservative party, it will be these idiots Hubris which destroys them in the end.

Perhaps the stunning upset by labor in the UK is the start of a world wide response and backlash to the recent conservative wave.  We can only hope.  Be sure to contact your house rep and let them know you are absolutely furious about the repeal of Dodd-Frank.

Day 120:

Jesus Christ….Someone somewhere has figured out that if you just do A million evil things at once, people will only call you out on about half of them, and you can get away with the rest.  Case in point, Trump and his republican assholes are on a rampage through this country.  Here is a small list of things going on right now:

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 72

Trump Watch:

You can watch this whole video, but I have stopped it at the most relevant part.  The republicans have sold you down the river because their corporate donors want to make more money.  If you have a republican house rep, or a republican senator, its likely that they voted for this law (not a single independent or democrat voted for it).  Why don’t you give them a call and tell them you wont be voting for them anymore.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 40

Trumps Crimes:

229 house republicans just voted to keep Trumps Taxes secret.  What the actual fuck, its like they don’t even care how corrupt this is anymore.  Do you have a republican house rep?  Well then they voted for this, because they all fucking voted for this.  Call them up and give them hell.

—————–

It’s time to starting calling the right wing religious people what they are, the American Taliban.  If they want to control women’s bodies, destroy our school system, teach only their religious view points, and will go to war to do so…you can see how the comparison is apt.  What makes america a good place to live is that we have separation of church and state.  It should stay that way.

Betsy DeVos is the worst of them, she actually praised Jim Crow laws…

——————–

Racist shit bag Jeff Sessions just dropped a 6 year old law suit against a racist voter ID law in Texas.  Just a reminder that Joe Manchin voted for this asshole.

——————-

In Trumps america a crazy white man can shoot two Indian’s and think he was shooting Iranians...Trump says absolutely nothing about this.  But he will go in front of thousands and make up Terror attacks supposedly carried out by refugees that never happened.  Trumps words matter, it is emboldening and normalizing this.  This is not normal, this is not ok!

——————

Trump is going full on tin pot dictator.

———————

Look at the nose grow, seems someone has been lying!  Or maybe its his boss, who now things Obama is out to get him.  Great, we are combining paranoia with all Trumps other problems.   Trump signed off on the phone search at the white house.  Gosh it must be just lovely to work for Trump.

—————–

The DNC can’t even follow it’s own rules when doing internal elections.  Jesus, these people can not be trusted.

————-

Trump wants to cut the EPA, and funding for PBS, so that he can increase the military budget.  Too bad his use of the military so far has been sloppy and half assed.

———————-

Conservatives only ever seem to care about an issue until it affects them, well it is starting to affect them.  Can we impeach this mother fucker already?

——————

27(!) Democrats just voted for the new Commerce Secretary, you might remember the old one had to withdraw from nomination because he was so corrupt, well the new one seems just as bad.  It is unacceptable that almost half the dem’s voted for this shit bag, why don’t you see if you have one of these senators, and give them a call and let them know they should expect a primary from the left next time they are up for election.

Solar now accounts for twice as many jobs as coal.  Why exactly are we still propping up the coal industry with billions in subsidies?  Hey West Virginia, why not move over to solar and wind, a lot less black lung and cave-in danger in those industry.  Oh right, you can’t have those jobs because your senators are all bought and paid for by the coal industry.  Here is an idea, vote them out of office and get someone who will take better care of your state.  Coal is dead, time to move on.  Oil is no better.

—————-

The Florida supreme court has overturned an abortion ban. Which is exactly what they should do, because abortion is legal, and you can’t ban it.  Keep fighting, even if winning takes a long time.

———–

Seems like all of our town hall actions are working, secret president Bannon is getting cold feet about repealing the ACA.  We all know that Trump doesn’t actually make any policy, so this is important. Keep it up!

————-

Even stupid old George W. doesn’t like Trump.  Wont make you feel any better about all the crimes George did, but maybe it will convince some supporters of Trump to double think.

—————-

————–

Lets get Nina Turner as governor of Ohio!

—————

I still love Bernie Sanders…please run again in 2020.

——————-

Looks like if you yell at a senator long enough he will change.  Booker to join Sanders on drug import bill.  Of course it is probably too late at this point, Trump would still have to sign it into law.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 28

Trumps administration is in a shambles, lets just hope they are so busy fending off the press and lawsuits, and congress to get anything done.  Because the only things they get done are bad things.

Bad things Trump Did Today:

So the press has decided they are going to overlook all the other problems, and sink their teeth into this Russia thing.  Great, but lets not forget that the oceans are warming, which is driving all the oxygen out of them, which could kill off the ocean ecosystem…which all life on this planet needs to survive.  Trump doesn’t believe in global warming, doesn’t care about science, and has appointed a climate denier to run the EPA (which at least one republican is already on board to fight against, keep up those calls!).  See how the Russian thing involves bribes and government secrets, and the climate involves the fate of all human kind…see how one is more important than the other.

—————-

Russia:

His ties go back 30 years.
Our allies have intercepted calls to and from Russia to Trump Aids.
Flynn has lost his security clearance. Which is good cause he and his family seem crazy.
His cronies have ties to Russia.
Even the senate and house are going to investigate.
The FBI seems to have been involved as well…great but of paranoid federal agents and spies are involved now too…

Words like Traitor and Treason are being thrown around.

This is just one of his many impeachable offenses.

What is trump doing about all of this?  He is going to  have a rallythis man is not fit to be president.

—————-

Trumps aid wears Nazi pins…seems ok with it.

—————-

I think the security folks are none too happy with Trumps war on their military industrial spy complex.  So they have started doing dirty things, like releasing the files for trumps 1970’s racial discrimination case.  Where trump was found to be discriminating against black people…shocker I know, Trump was found to be a huge racist.  Well at least now we have court proof that he is horrible.

—————-

A good dictator never answers questions he doesn’t want to.  Trump will only take questions from conservative news orgs.  Good, from now on only send the interns to these stupid propaganda parades, instead have all your veteran journalists out in the field digging up dirt on Trump.

—————-

Trump stresses people out, he certainly stresses me out.  Lets do the country a favor and put him in jail for high crimes against the state.

—————-

If you care about a two state solution in Israel and Palestine, you wont be happy with Trump.

—————–

The Resistance!

A Day Without an immigrant strike TODAY!

GENERAL STRIKE FEB 17!

GENERAL STRIKE!

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

————-

Trump only cares about money.  If he wont divest, just take away his ability to run business.  Or keep his cronies money machines from functioning. Take them apart one dollar at a time.

————-

Congress is running scared from the people.  GOOD!  Keep showing up and telling them you are unhappy with them. If they wont have town halls, we have to go meet them at their offices.

————-

Imagine 10 years ago, was anyone famous talking about gerrymandering?  Well they are now.  The revolution is in full force!


Joe Manchin voted for Rex tillerson, and Jeff Sessions, and almost every other Trump Cabinet Pick.  Its time to kick him off the democratic leadership council.  We kick out the corporate dems, and fill the party back up with real progressives.

It looks like CNN has learned how to do actual real news, by watching the daily show, jon oliver, and samantha bee.
