PENCE COSTLY, SEE THROUGH, SLEAZY POLITICAL STUNT

AMERICAN NATIONAL PAST TIME

Football is a family of team sports that involve, to varying degrees, kicking a ball with the foot to score a goal. Unqualified, the word football is understood to refer to whichever form of football is the most popular in the regional context in which the word appears.

I don’t know anything about football. It really doesn’t impress me much.

There’s a bunch of tough guys, placing hands up a player’s behind, shouting numbers, running into each other ending up on a heap of male muscle, increased testosterone and frequent stops.

The only interesting thing nowadays is the #TakeAKnee protest. 

By now, all fans and non-fans know about Pence’s costly, fake trip to Indiana. The cost of this charade has been calculated.

Nothing much!

It seems like we’ll never know exactly how much it cost taxpayers to have Mike Pence abruptly leave a football game Sunday between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers.

But conservative estimates say it was at least $200,000 – and that’s for the air travel alone.

CNN did a back-of-the-envelope calculation and figured the flight from Las Vegas (where Pence attended a memorial service for the victims of the mass shooting) to Indianapolis and then to Los Angeles for a previously scheduled political event cost at least $242,500. The cost of a flight straight from Las Vegas to Los Angeles would have been around $45,000.

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 #132.
The video speaks for itself.
If this resonates with you, good.
If it doesn’t, just scroll away to the next blog.
Thank you!

NATIONAL STRIKE

First National Strike Against Donald Trump Planned For 2/17

A growing number of activists are calling for a general national strike against President Drumpf on February 17, 2017

… the Friday before President’s Day.
In addition to the nationwide marches and protests, the first of possibly many general non-violent strikes are meant to send a message of widespread disapproval to Trump, his administration and to the Republicans who enable him.

This grassroots movement is calling for a national general strike on February 17th, 2017 in defense of our nation’s constitution.

Participants pledge to be non-violent. On the day of the strike, we will not go to work (unless absolutely necessary). We will not go to school (unless necessary). We will not spend any money (unless necessary).

Instead, we will show dissent with unconstitutional governance through gatherings and activities to be organized at the local/personal level. Some communities are planning a day of service. Instead of work, strikers will dedicate their time to serving neighbors in need. Find your people.

Make your plan.

SPREAD THE WORD!

bline

~DEMANDS~

1. No Ban, No Wall. The Muslim ban is immoral, the wall is expensive and ineffectual. We will build bridges, not walls.
2. Healthcare For All. Healthcare is a human right. Do not repeal the ACA. Improve it or enact Medicare for All.
3. No Pipelines. Rescind approval for DAPL and Keystone XL and adopt meaningful policies to protect our environment. It’s the only one we’ve got.
4. End the Global Gag Rule. We cannot put the medical care of millions of women around the globe at risk.
5. Disclose and Divest. Show us your taxes. Sell your company. Ethics rules exist for a reason and presidents should focus on the country, not their company.

Women’s March on Washington: Historic Protest Three Times Larger Than Trump’s Inaugural Crowd

WaPo Just Revealed Size of Women’s March “Visibly” Enraged Trump

President Drumpf Was ‘Visibly Enraged’ Over Women’s March

In one of the largest days of protest in U.S. history, millions took to the streets Saturday one day after the inauguration of Donald Trump. The largest protest was the Women’s March on Washington, where more than 500,000 packed the streets. According to crowd scientists at Manchester Metropolitan University in Britain, the crowd was roughly three times the size of the audience at President Trump’s inauguration a day earlier.

Women-led marches took place in over 600 locations spread across seven continents—including Antarctica. In addition to Washington, massive protests took place in Boston; Chicago; Denver; Los Angeles; Madison, Wisconsin; New York; Oakland; Portland, Oregon; St. Paul; San Francisco and Seattle. According to one count, as many as 4.6 million people took part in the global day of action.

As his press secretary, Sean Spicer, was still unpacking boxes in his spacious new West Wing office, Trump grew increasingly and visibly enraged. Trump turned on the television to see a jarring juxtaposition — massive demonstrations around the globe protesting his day-old presidency and footage of the sparser crowd at his inauguration, with large patches of white empty space on the Mall.

Trump was adamant, aides said.

blinemarch-crowd-ashley-judd20170121_114210bline

Over the objections of his aides and advisers – who urged him to focus on policy and the broader goals of his presidency – the new president issued a decree: He wanted a fiery public response, and he wanted it to come from his press secretary.

Shepard Fairey Promotes Hope and Diversity …. “Inauguration Protest Posters ….”!!


posters

~~January 17, 2017~~ 

INAUGURATION PROTEST POSTERS

On Friday, January 20, President-elect Donald Trump will be officially sworn in as the United States of America’s 45th President

A controversial figure, Trump has alienated a substantial amount of Americans throughout the course of his campaign and eye-opening victory. To condemn his platform and protest his presidential plans, countless groups are organizing demonstrations along the National Mall in Washington DC, where the inauguration will take place.

While many of these associations are purely politics-based, The Amplifier Foundation – in collaboration with contemporary artists Shepard Fairey, Ernesto Yerena, and Jessica Sabogal – will bring an artistic touch to the event with We the People, a collection of inspiring inauguration posters.

Rendered in street art’s signature stenciled style, each We the People poster features a powerful portrait of an American citizen. Promoting unity while emphasizing diversity, the series of prints presents people from various walks of life.

One design features a Muslim woman clad in a star-spangled hijab; another depicts a Native American elder; and one even portrays a tender moment between a same-sex couple.

Beneath each patriotic portrait is a message, many of which are defiantly led by “We the People,” the famous first words of the American Constitution.

Although some of the posters look strikingly similar to Fairey’s Hope – a piece popularized during President Obama’s inspiring 2008 campaign – the Amplifier Foundation stresses an important underlying difference between the two projects.

bline

“Eight years ago, the artist Shepard Fairey made the iconic image that captured a period of HOPE in America.

Today we are in a very different moment, one that requires new images that reject the hate, fear, and open racism that were normalized during the 2016 presidential campaign.

So on Inauguration Day, We the People will flood Washington, DC with NEW symbols of hope.”

Happy Christmas …. ‘War Is Over’ …. “Timeliness Classic …. still applies today …. “!!

CHRISTMAS IS OVER … NEW YEAR NEARBY

A timeless classic.

Another favorite of mine.

It was written so long ago, yet the lyrics apply today as much as they did then.

If only ….

Happy Xmas … War is Over!

Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” is a Christmas song with lyrics by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, released in 1971 as a single by John & Yoko/Plastic Ono Band with the Harlem Community Choir.

The lyrics are set to the traditional English ballad “Skewball”.

It was the seventh single release by Lennon outside of his work with the Beatles. The song reached number 4 in the UK, where its release was delayed until November 1972, and has periodically reemerged on the UK Singles Chart, most notably after Lennon’s death in 1980, at which point it peaked at number 2.

Also a protest song against the Vietnam War, “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” has since become a Christmas standard, frequently covered by other artists, appearing on compilation albums of seasonal music, and named in polls as a holiday favorite.

Partial Lyrics 

And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
Yellow and red ones
Let’s stop all the fight

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear ….

Michael Moore …. “Getting ready for what is coming our way …. 2017 …. Be Prepared ….. “!!

THE UNTHINKABLE AND UNAVOIDABLE

It happened.

There are no ‘if’s or but’s’ about it.

This is a done deal.

No way around it.

I watched The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell last Thursday, December 22.

Michael Moore was his guest that night.

His segment was impressive.

Here’s only but a part of it.

I wish I could have found all of it.

Anyway, here’s the plan Mr. Moore lays out for this new year.

Michael Moore’s 5-Point Plan to Combat Trump in 2017

Well-known and loved liberal mind Michael Moore appeared on MSNBC to explain his five-point plan to resist Donald Trump in 2017.

Moore has already made waves several times since the election, most notably with his plan to immediately have Donald Trump impeached, but he has come back to the the public with a level-headed and practical way everyone can move into the new year with a plan – and hope.

Visit your Congressional representative, whether in the House or in the Senate.

(Moore reminds those watching that Congress is in recess, and all representatives will be home.)

Insist that the Democratic National Committee appoint leaders who fall within the progressive spectrum.

blinemm-sbline

Form your very own rapid-response team.

(This is explained as a team made up of  neighbors, friends, or family who will be part of a text, call, or Facebook tree designed to prompt immediate response to Trump by contacting representatives, applying social media pressure, etc. The goal? To make sure your voices are heard.)

Plan to be a part of a protest taking place during Trump’s inauguration weekend.

Have a Plan B – as bad as you think it’s going to be, it’s actually going to be worse.

(His behavior since the election, coupled with his cabinet picks have given us a “coming attraction.” Be prepared).
