RE the "I love this graphic" thread: Its history and where to get flags, yard signs, free downloads!

I posted this thread in March and was inspired by this thread to re-post:

"I love this graphic!" by Kath2

The graphic was developed by Nasty Women Get Shit Done Portland and these signs are everywhere in Portland!

Go check out their site! THere is tons of good stuff to inspire you.

Yard signs, car/window signs, flags, postcards, window stickers, more . Rep. Blumenauer had a town hall in March and had a huge one above him on the stage.



"NWGSDPDX emerged to actively resist the xenophobia, racism, misogyny, ableism, anti-LGBTQ, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic, anti-Earth platform and policies of the new administration.

Our strength lies in understanding that our fundamental rights and freedom are bound to justice for all. We strive to listen, learn and take the lead from people within marginalized and targeted groups.

We seek to understand the role of our own power and privilege in building a united and intersectional resistance.

Our monthly meetings include an educational component so that we can continue to learn ways to be allies within our community.

Mission Statement:
To support an era of activism, democracy and progressive politics in which we advocate for social, financial and environmental justice.

All proceeds from sales and donations are donated to local non-profits that support the values on the flag. "


“We want this not to be a moment, but a movement,” said U.S. Rep Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) during a meeting with NWGSDPDX. He noted that women are the leaders who are stepping up to organize and lead grassroots groups all across the country.

Rachel: 20 house repubs calling for 2nd special counsel to investigate HRC, Comey because it hasn't

had adequate investigation. It's all (I think all) the Rs on the House Judiciary Committee.

Turn on Rachel . RW media, T going after potential FBI witnesses. Al Franken on shortly.

Remember the guys Comey said he told about his mtg with Trump? RW media going after them one by one trying to discredit the FBI.

Al Franken on shortly.

Chris Hayes on Scaramucci: the fish rots from head down; everyone who works for T becomes a mini T

Charlie PIerce said once Scar gets his own SNL character, T will get jealous and oust him.
Joy: We're all in a giant video game and Scar is just the avatar T has chosen to play.

I like Scar better than Mooch for a nickname. He reminds me of Scar in Lion King.

Girl Scouts Obtain Restraining Order Against Trump (Borowitz)

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In an extraordinary rebuke of the President of the United States, the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. have obtained a restraining order against Donald J. Trump.

The order, which the Girls Scouts were granted on Monday night, prevents Trump from coming within three hundred feet of any gathering of the Scouts’ organization.

Carol Foyler, a Girl Scouts spokesperson, said that while the G.S.U.S.A. sought the restraining order “out of an abundance of caution,” the girls themselves were “in no way, shape or form” afraid of President Trump.

“They’re prepared to deal with bobcats and bears,” she said. “They can handle a malignant narcissist.”

Trump wasted little time responding to the Girl Scouts’ action, lashing out at the organization in a blistering early-morning tweet storm.

“Failing Girl Scouts bad (or sick) guys,” Trump wrote. “Mints, cookies terrible. Sad!”

Christopher Wray/Christie client/attorney relationship "extraordinarily unusual, possibly unethical"

Rachel had this last night; here's more. Hope Al Franken is on this.

Christie's Hiring of FBI Nominee as Bridgegate Attorney Raises Questions

President Trump's nominee for FBI director, Christopher Wray, represented Gov. Chris Christie as his personal, publicly-funded Bridgegate attorney for 11 months before signing a mandatory retainer agreement, according to new documents provided to WNYC through a public records request.

Wray began working for Christie as his personal, publicly-funded attorney, according to bills submitted to the state, in September 2014. But it wasn't until August 2015, 11 months later, that Wray and Christie formally agreed to the arrangement.

Several lawyers who work with the government said the extended delay was extraordinarily unusual, possibly unethical, and could indicate that Christie, who was preparing to run for president at the time, was keeping it hidden from the public that he had a taxpayer-funded criminal attorney. Indeed it wasn't until the summer of 2016 that it was revealed that Wray was holding onto a piece of potential evidence — one of Christie's cell phones that his former aides, charged in the Bridgegate affair, unsuccessfully sought to subpoena.

Wray and his colleagues would ultimately bill taxpayers more than $2 million in fees and expenses, including meals, hotel rooms, cab fare and flights. They continued working — and being paid — even after the Bridgegate trial ended and those convicted were sentenced to prison. It is unclear what work was done, since the governor was neither charged nor called to testify.

Shortly thereafter Christie recommended Wray to his friend, President Trump, for the job of FBI director.

Wyden on Rachel talking Kushner: gotta have him in open hearing; watch Rachel if you can! Loaded...

Wyden says Kushner was evasive, made very careful lawyer-ly statements in his statement.
T has gone from saying no collusion to"'so what?"
Talking to Wyden about T trying to push Sessions out.
If pres fires Mueller w/o cause, it will trigger constitutional crisis. (But we knew that...)

Sen. Wyden: Kushner statement work of clever lawyer; should be no presumption he is telling truth

Everyone probably knows by now that Sen. Wyden is on Senate Intel and has been a champion for transparency and public hearings since even before the election!

Wyden Statement on Kushner Testimony
Monday, July 24, 2017

Washington, D.C. –Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today called for full transparency by Jared Kushner, in response to the statement Kushner released this morning.

“It is imperative that the public hear Jared Kushner testify in an open session of the Senate Intelligence Committee, under oath, and support his claims with full transparency in the form of emails, documents and financial records,” Wyden said.

“Kushner’s statement, which he released publicly to the press, raises far more questions than it answers.

His description of his financial relationships with individuals and businesses tied to Russia appears incomplete, at best. Notably, the comment ‘I have not relied on Russian funds to finance my business activities in the private sector,’ is clearly the work of a clever lawyer trying to protect his client, not someone trying to clear up questions raised by Congress and the American people. He has an obligation to be transparent with all relevant documents to back up his claims.

More broadly, Kushner has repeatedly concealed information about his personal finances and meetings with foreign officials. There should be no presumption that he is telling the whole truth today.”

Actor Ron Perlman's hilarious recreation of Trump's NYT interview on AM Joy



Actor Ron Perlman appearing on AM Joy with Associate Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University John McWhorter, delivered accurate impression of President Trump’s rambling speech patterns based upon the N.Y.T. interview with the president from earlier in the week.

Watch Joy and McWhorter crack up.

Perlman part is shortly after the 3 minute point, but the whole thing is well worth watching.

Rachel on. Thought she wouldn't be. Talking Mueller/ T "disturbed" RE finance investigation.

Looks like investigation will get into his taxes! Finally. WH going nuclear.
Rachel's producer called one of T's lawyers to check out report T team was checking out statute of limitations on certain crimes. Atty said he will never talk to Rachel again and it's not true!!
