MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

~Spiking the ball after the first quarter~

House Republicans marched to the White House on Thursday afternoon, May 4, to celebrate their victory:

Passage of the American Health Care Act.
Drumpf welcomed them with a Rose Garden celebration.

The 2003 Mission Accomplished speech gets its name from a banner that read “Mission Accomplished” displayed on the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln during a televised address by United States President George W. Bush on May 1, 2003 and the controversy that followed.

On May 4, 2017, the US House of Representatives rammed a bill which passed with a very narrow margin.

This is the famous ‘repeal/replace’ Obamacare.

After the fact, these people partied in the Rose Garden.

This act and the photos will come back and haunt anyone who was there.

The only thing that happened really was the ramming of this bill.

There’s still a lot to be done before it becomes the ‘law of the land’.

Seems to me this celebration was a bit premature.

We’ll see!

Keith Olbermann, #66 …. “Drumpf’s New War on Free Speech …. not happening …. “!!


~~May 1, 2017~~ 

WAR ON FREE SPEECH

It seems that this Republican administration is going down a slippery slope.

Freedom of the press has been a pillar of the democracy proudly proclaimed by the United States of America.

This pillar is strongly and ‘bigly’  protected by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.

If this change would ever come to fruition, the consumer would be the one mostly affected.

Take a look!

Drumpf said he plans to change libel laws in the United States so that he can have an easier time suing news organizations.

During an interview with ABC’s This Week on Sunday, April 30, about the Drumpf’s first 100 days in office, the White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus, remarked that “newspapers and news agencies need to be more responsible with how they report the news.”

When asked whether the Drumpf administration wants to change laws to allow the President to sue the press, Priebus responded:

“I think it’s something that we’ve looked at.”

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.

Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues.

He has posted installment #66.

The video speaks for itself.

If this resonates with you, good.

If they don’t, just scroll away to the next blog.

Neil Gorsuch …. “several of his many ‘minuses’ …. wrong for SCOTUS, IMHO …. “!!


Gorsuch

~~March 24, 2017~~ 

WORSE THAN SCALIA

IN MY HUMBLE OPINION

Neil McGill Gorsuch (born August 29, 1967) is an American federal appellate judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.

On February 1, 2017, Drumpf nominated Gorsuch to be an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, to fill the seat left vacant after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia eleven months earlier.

Gorsuch is a proponent of textualism in statutory interpretation and originalism in interpreting the U.S. Constitution.

Gorsuch Says Marriage Equality “Absolutely Settled Law,” But Gets Indignant About LGBT Rights

(LGBT OPINION)

Earlier on Tuesday, March 21, Senator Richard Durbin asked Gorsuch about his views on LGBT people, and President Trump’s nominee seemed annoyed about having to respond to the question.

“What about them?” he asked. “They’re people.”

When Durbin asked the nominee to give an example of a decision or statement he made that was favorable to LGBT people, Gorsuch declared that he feels all people are entitled to equal treatment under the law.

“Senator, I’ve tried to treat each case and each person as a person, not a ‘this kind of person,’ not a ‘that kind of person’ – a person,” Gorsuch replied.

“Equal justice under law is a radical promise in the history of mankind.”

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch was grilled about LGBT rights during his confirmation hearings this week, and while the U.S. Circuit judge referred to same-sex marriage as “settled law,” he refused to share his own opinion on the matter.

Who is Gavin Grimm? …. Let’s put a face to the name …. a case headed to the Supreme Court …. Title IX protections …. no longer enforced …. “!!

TRANSGENDER … THE ‘T’ IS SILENT?

The transgender community, (the “T” in LGBT), hasn’t had an easy existence

There was plenty of hope during the recent years when rights for the LGBT community were recognized as basic human rights, including transgender rights.

However, the Drumpf administration has taken it upon themselves to start the dismantling of these human rights.

From Melanie Nathan, a blogger I follow  …. “Today, February 22, that transphobic homophobe the putrid Trump AG, Jeff Sessions, did exactly what we thought he would do the moment he assumed office – AND so hand in hand with that other homophobe and transphobic piece of work Pence – as well as an apparently forced Betsy DeVos Of the Department of Education – announced that Title IX will no longer be enforced to protect transgender students equally in all school facilities, including restrooms.

Title IX guaranteed students the right to a safe and supportive learning environment regardless of gender and protects them from discrimination.
There is no reasonable basis for them to do this except spite and hate of a community that deserves protection and recognition.”
So disgusted!!

I think this is the beginning.

Like the #MuslimBan, the LGBT community is in the cross-hairs now. 
Bad things are headed this way!!

Transgender Children & Youth: Understanding the Basics

One of the most important and difficult tasks that parents face is how to best support their children while also setting the kind of boundaries and structure that helps them grow up to become responsible and successful adults. Sure, children and teens love to test the boundaries that adults set for them. But it is important to make distinctions between instances where “kids are being kids” and when they’re asserting things about themselves that are critical to their identity and development – as is the case with gender identity and expression.

~Gavin Grimm: Meet the Boy Laverne Cox Shouted Out at the Grammys~

(this case is so much more important now)

by MARY EMILY O’HARA

February 13, 2017

Who is Gavin Grimm — and why does Hollywood’s most high-profile transgender actress want you to learn about him?

Grimm is a 17-year-old high school senior in Virginia whose fight against the local school board will be argued at the Supreme Court on March 28. The transgender boy’s long road to the highest court in the country started at age 15, when he was forced to endure a series of school board meetings at which adults debated whether or not he should be allowed to use the boys bathroom at school.

ACLU attorney Josh Block told NBC News that Grimm’s case has taken on a new significance with President Trump now overseeing federal agencies like the Department of Education.

For the last 20 years the overwhelming majority of lower courts have been holding that out civil rights laws against sex discrimination protect transgender people,” said Block. “Gavin’s case is the first time the Supreme Court will consider the question and reaffirm that transgender people are protected. With a presidential new administration, these protections are more critical than ever.”

But the case, “Gloucester County School Board v. G.G.,” stands to impact every transgender teen and child in the nation: the Supreme Court will use it to decide whether Title IX protections on the basis of sex can be interpreted to include gender identity, and whether Obama-era guidance from the Department of Education can be considered the law of the land.

We Will Resist

I go back in time.

Because of my life’s experiences, I use the year 1969 as a reference for the proud emergence of the LGBT community.

I’m well aware that it was there for a long time before 1969.

It wasn’t called that at the time.

The Stonewall Inn riots frame the history for me.

I was 19 years old in 1969, barely coming of age, and realizing that I was ‘different‘.

I did not have a name for it.

I learned about it as the years went by.

In view of the current Republican administration, many of the rights that those before me fought for, may be in jeopardy.

( … as many other causes/topics seem to be … )

In the past, today and always … these rainbow colors don’t run!

We refuse to go back into the closet!!

No One is Above the Law …. “there should be no exception now …. “!!

~~February 7, 2017~~ 

#MuslimBan

The line has been drawn in the sand.

Executive versus Judicial power!

The stay was ordered and the Drumpf administration has appealed.

The hearing has been set for February 7, 2017 at 6 PM EST.

U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE JAMES ROBART

bline

‘The threat from radical Islamic terrorism is very real, just look at what is happening in Europe and the Middle-East.

Courts must act fast!’

Drumpf, the ‘so-called president’

bline

In a tweet coming shortly after Robart’s initial ruling, he called him a “so-called judge,” whose decision put national security in jeopardy.

The context of this bullish statement directed at the courts is that, on Tuesday, February 7, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will take up the issue of the legality of Trump’s presently suspended Muslim ban. This hearing comes as just one stop in an already long and winding legal battle between those opposed to the ban and those in favor of it.

Seattle Federal Judge James Robart ruled against the ban late last Friday, February 3, and the Trump administration has been up in arms ever since then, trying to get it reinstated.

-SO-CALLED JUDGE-

‘NOTORIOUS R. B.G.’

The lack of respect for the judicial branch of the USA government is amazing.

Didn’t expect any different.

This is true to his ‘form’.

The judicial branch operates separate from the executive.

It stands on its own.

Guess, one more time, Drumpf has shown his utter ignorance!

Feb 4, 2017 8:55 PM
Drumpf launched an early morning Twitter offensive against a federal judge Saturday, February 4, after U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle declared a nationwide stay on Mr. Drumpf’s travel ban.

The ‘so-called president‘ defended his immigration order, which prohibits refugees or any citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the U.S., in the series of tweets.

He also swore that Robart’s temporary restraining order, which effectively freezes the executive order’s most controversial provisions, would be “overturned”.

(We will wait and see!)
