According to one of the Washington Post headline’s yesterday: Democrats all but acknowledge Kavanaugh is headed toward confirmation to Supreme Court.

Just a few reminders of why this is enraging:

  • Roe v Wade
  • Affordable Care Act
  • Kavanaugh’s own false testimony, documents apparently too difficult to make public in time for confirmation hearings
  • Ubiquitous white supremacy

Shame on all our elected officials who concede to this nominee, especially Collins (R), Murkowski (R) and Heitkamp (D). Maine, Alaska and New Hampshire residents, if you have a modicum of conscience, and if your senators votes for Kavanaugh, vote them out.

The few undeclared Republicans and Democrats have indicated they are open to voting for the judge, whose Senate confirmation hearings will get underway the first week in September.

…Forty-nine of the 51 Republican senators have expressed their full support or likely backing, shifting the focus to two GOP swing votes — Collins and…

Who is a Trump supporter?

Elect2Care

Who besides the 1% are such elitists? SERIOUSLY? Setting aside the morally bereft acceptance of Trump separating refugee babies from moms (A. Very. Generous. Concession), now Trump supporters agree those with US visas and green cards who have ever relied on government support — from the Affordable Care Act and Medicare to food stamps and disability — must have their visas/green cards revoked?!

Demographics say primarily white men without college degrees still stand proudly behind Trump and this policy. REALLY? None of you have ever collected unemployment? Filed for bankruptcy? Requested medical disability because of illness or accident?

Check out these facts culled from a series of surveys conducted by one of the U.S.’s most respected public opinion research centers, PEW, which leave us with a clear picture of the Trump demographic.

They are primarily white, older men with low levels of education and income. They believe that immigrants and…

‘Starve the beast.” Boycott Fox Advertisers

Elect2Care

Since Ivanka Trump announced the closing of her product line, I’ve been looking for more ways to boycott Trump-cult products and services. I came across a brilliant site:

In its words: “Inspired by you our readers, the activism of David Hogg, Richard Reich, and many others:

“What are we to do, other than vote November 6 to constrain Trump? First, boycott Fox News’s major sponsors, listed here.

Vote with your wallet and starve the beast.

Get others to join you.” – July 12, 2018,

Robert Reich, Fmr US Secretary of Labor, Prof UC Berkeley, and Co-founder of Inequity Media, writing in Newsweek, Opinion: Donald Trump Is A Liar. Don’t Let Him Get Away With It

Again, here are the go-to sites:  https://www.foxnewsadvertisers.com and @Consumer FX.

Yo Republicans–House Un-American Activities Committee Ring a Bell?

Standard

Elect2Care

Seriously, folks. Are you in comas? Trump just threatened Iran, a week after holding a two-hour one-on-one meeting with Soviet dictator Vladimir Putin, days after the Justice Department indicted 12 Russians in great detail for interfering with the 2016 elections to benefit Trump, at the same time every other American government entity agrees Russia is actively engaged in cyber warfare with the United States.

Anticommunist_Literature_1950sGOP Representatives and Senators, how do you describe un-American activities nowadays? Not a Joseph McCarthy wannabe in your group? Think about it — you could make good on this error. Rewrite history with…FACTS! Do you physically need to be shaken to remember McCarthyism?

Let me save you the Google trip:  According to Wikipedia: it’s the practice of making accusations of subversion or treason without proper regard for evidence.[1] The term refers to U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy and has its origins in the period in the…

Double Standard or What?

So what if a group or a politician — it could be anyone from, oh say, The ACLU or a Christian parish to Representative Nancy Pelosi or Senator Paul Ryan, had a really bad moment.

  • They felt threatened by, oh say, POTUS befriending and meeting secretly with a cold-blooded dictator like Putin.
  • Or the idea of separating asylum seeking refugee babies from their parents felt decidedly un-American.
  • Or tapes came to light of Trump and his former fixer discussing paying off Trump’s lovers’ within weeks of the presidential election smacked of effecting voting trends.

And, in an irrational moment, they tweet:

To US President Trump: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS.

Vote with Your Wallet: Buycott for Social Justice

Standard

Trump’s conduct has gotten so extreme that even mainstream and venerable news outlets have started comparing his conduct to fascism. Many of Trump’s major business already cut ties with him. NBC and Macy’s as well as many other companies that do business with Trump ended their relationship over the summer. It’s a good start. But there’s more work to do.
