Even with the Russian attacks on our political system the Democratic Party shouldn’t have lost the election. Really. But now with Trumpy the Jackass in charge and the GOPers controlling the whole government, where their idiocy, naked greed and incompetence will be on glaring display, now the Democratic Party has a moral obligation to get their shit together. Real fast.
The special election in Kansas may have been a heavy lift given how red the state has become, but the Democrats need to start fighting for every inch of ground. This is war. The GOPers have been viewing the situation as total war for a long time now and the Dems need to get that and get it fast. And on top of that Governor Brownback of Kansas has seriously injured the state. They should have fought all out for the seat.
Deray Mckessan just launched a new site for state level activism called OurStates that looks very helpful. We applaud him. A link to the site will also be found on the Resources Page. Here’s an article about the site from OccupyDemocrats.
This is a good time to remind about Michael Moore’s Resistance Calendar site.
And since we’re on the subject of activism here’s two articles that will be useful to activists crossing borders and digital security:
I hope the big money boys on the zombie Right are ready for social unrest and economic breakdown. Those aren’t my words. This is from a statement by former W. Bush administration, counselor to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Eliot A. Cohen. Not a man given to hyperbole.
The article is amazing and his statement, especially to Republicans, is severe and frank.
This here is priceless– nazi grease ball Steve Bannon, former editor-in-chief of alt-right-lite Breitbart is giving orders to the press
Kind of stunning. This part is particularly amazing:
“I want you to quote this,” he said. “The media here is the opposition party. They don’t understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States.”
The press doesn’t understand why Donald is president? The press doesn’t understand Russian hacking? FBI interference in an election? The press doesn’t understand how stupid and bigoted 35-40% of the country is? Good points. The thing is… Does Donald understand that he lost the popular vote by about 3 million votes? Because I don’t think he does.
Corruption, corruption, corruption. Trump’s pick for Health and Human Services, Rep. Tom Price (R-GA), likes to buy stock and then introduce legislation that would help his stock. Slick. Elizabeth Warren shined a bright light on him during his hearing today. The zombies don’t like bright light.
Trumpets the Clown continues to threaten the press. And again, start thinking now about what the response will be when they go from threats to action. It is coming.
Mike Pence is not a big fan of The Gay. They love him on the zombie Right for this. I can report that the alt-right 4chan boys are crazy for Mike Pence. Remember Mike was one of the first ones out of the gate with the, so-called, ‘religious freedom’ laws when he was governor of Indiana. Don’t be fooled by the zombie’s 1984-reverse-naming-technique. ‘Religious Freedom’ to them means ‘right to discriminate’; like their ‘right to work’ laws are union killing laws. They are some perverted bastards, for sure.
In these dark days celebrate good news where ever you get it. The zombie Right loves Wikileaks now so they should be happy too. Remember, Chelsea leaked information to Wikileaks that showed American military committing war crimes. Her ‘crime’ was an act of heroism.
I’m very happy for her.
Well worth the time to watch. Rachel puts the Trump inauguration in the context of Nixon’s second inauguration. She also highlights the protests surrounding the coming Trump Administration and gives evidence that the ideas put forth in the Indivisible Document (can be found in Resources page) are being employed to good effect already. Again, well worth watching:
The Scots do high level satire in their freakin’ TV listings, for God sakes.
