Confederate Monuments Protest

Trump’s begrudging statement today about the horrifying events in Charlottesville was delivered stiffly like a disinterested 5th grader reading out loud to his class, with none of the emotion and vehemence of his attacks on the press, Nordstrom and Kathy Griffin.

Republicans have so far ignored what Americans want, time will tell if they’ve grown so desperate, they may consider representing the wishes of their constituents.

Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn

The House’s and Senate’s so-called “health care” bills are transparent tools of class warfare, they are defined by the Congressional Budget Office as ripping away healthcare from 22 million to 24 million Americans to deliver hundreds of billions of dollars in tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans.

Democrats should commit themselves to blocking any and all business in either house until or unless an independent prosecutor is appointed to investigate the possible collusion of Trump’s campaign and administration with Russia.

Trump AHCA Death

The Spectre of Death proclaimed, “The AFCA will give Americans killer health care! What your president and his fellow Republicans are doing by moving the AFCA forward is dead right! This is health care to die for! In record numbers, Americans will be passing away…their Obamacare cards for Trumpcare cards!”

Trump crowd

As Maya Angelou said, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.” Trump voters have already displayed that they are devoted to him despite reality and facts. Believe them, they mean it.

Trump terrorist

Donald Trump is a terrorist in the literal sense. When Trump tries to negotiate, he doesn’t do so like a sharp businessman, he just uses extortion like any thug or terrorist might. There is no art to the dealing Trump does, just the threat of brute force.

trump bannon

With such an unpopular and xenophobic agenda so desperately desired, might not Trump and Bannon see it to their advantage if a terrorist attack did take place and a frightened public fell in line behind whatever they wanted to do?

womens march

There were so many fantastic signs in The Women’s March made but one that seemed most inspirational and reflective of the empowerment that this movement inspires said, “Thanks President Obama, we’ve got this!”

How would Trump respond to having a growing majority of Americans oppose and disapprove of him? Would he continue ahead or look into the mirror and sneer, “You’re fired!”?

For liberals, moderates and some conservatives, the next two years are going to be difficult to stomach politically. How should we deal with this new landscape?

Running another driver into construction workers and equipment because they would have gotten in front of you was one thing but blaming someone for damage to your pickup they didn’t do, only an asshole would do that.

As the cliche goes, the definition of insanity is doing something over and over again and expecting a different result. It’s also been the practice of Democratic Party establishment, on and off for many years.

trump-neanderthal

“We am here to stay just like first Neanderthals,” grunted Trump supporter and Newanderthal, Clyde Ham, previously explaining that part of the lifestyle includes not “con-jew-gating” verbs properly because they own the banks.

It won’t just be civilians defying and challenging Trump and the GOP Congress. The LAPD has already stated that they will not cooperate with Trump’s plan to deport up to 3 million undocumented immigrants. Military leaders have vowed not to follow orders that are against the law including Trump’s wanting to bring back waterboarding and other torture. And this is just the beginning.

I spent most of yesterday trying to intellectualise the outcome, but it comes down to three things, racism, sexism and privilege.
