America, the diminished

What Trump has wrought.

Source: Vox, by Ezra Klein


A list like this can go on. It is a measure of our diminishment how much is left off it — how many outrages and disappointments have already faded from memory. Six months into his term, Trump’s policy achievements are few and thin, but he has coarsened our politics, shown the power of shamelessness, undermined our faith in each other and ourselves, modeled behavior we would punish children for exhibiting, and implicated all of us in the running fiasco of his presidency. He has diminished the country he promised to make great.

July Recess: Women Resist Tool Kit (Ultraviolet)

"...we can’t rest—right now is literally the most critical time in this fight so far. Senator Mitch McConnell is working around the clock to convince senators who are on the fence and even offering concessions to allay their concerns. Some senators have said those negotiations are close to winning them over. If we don’t speak out now, Trumpcare could be on the president’s desk waiting for his signature as early as next week."


"If these are your senators, it’s time to leave it all on the field. If you do not live in one of these key states, there is still plenty for you to do—ALL of us across the country are creating an environment on the ground, in the media, and in DC conversations that Trumpcare is deeply unpopular."

Rallying against Trump is 'the most patriotic thing we can do,' protesters say

"There is nothing more patriotic than what we're doing on this July 4th weekend," Dominae Leveille, of Bedminster, said as eight protesters held signs by the side of Route 206 after the motorcade. 



A sign reading "People's Motorcade" hung on a truck leading the activists, and a mannequin of Trump with a Pinocchio nose sat in the flatbed. American flags hung out the windows of several cars. 



Anywhere from six to 125 people have joined past motorcades, which began May 6 during Trump's first weekend visit to New Jersey since taking office, organizer Jim Girvan said. Girvan, who sits on the steering committee of the anti-Trump activist group We the People NJ-07, spreads the word through Facebook and tells Bedminster police each week how many people he expects.



"I have 11 grandchildren faced with growing up in a country that doesn't represent anything it was meant to stand for," he said before he ticked off a list of his concerns, including healthcare, voting rights and national security.

Anti-Trump Banner To Be Flown In Protest Of U.S. Women's Open Being Held In Bedminster

UltraViolet, a women’s advocacy organization, will fly a plane banner on Saturday over the U.S. Senior Open in Peabody, Massachusetts to urge the United States Golf Association and Ladies Professional Golf Association to sever ties with Donald Trump and move the 2017 U.S. Women’s Open from Trump’s Bedminster Golf Course.

The banner, which will be in the air from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m., will read: “USGA/LPGA: Take A Mulligan. Dump Trump.”

The 2017 U.S. Women’s Open Tournament is scheduled to take place at Donald Trump’s golf resort in Bedminster from July 13 to 16.

“The USGA’s claim that holding the U.S. Women’s Open at Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster isn’t a political decision misses the point entirely. Our objection to holding the tournament at Trump National Golf Course isn’t about who’s President — it’s about the USGA choosing to give millions in revenue, free advertising and branding, to a self-professed serial sexual predator; one with a record of racism and misogyny,” explained Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of UltraViolet. “By holding the U.S. Women’s Open — one of the most prestigious women’s tournaments — at Trump’s golf course, the USGA and LPGA are sending a message to women across the country that this kind of racist, sexist, abusive behavior is okay — and that’s just wrong.”

UltraViolet also has a petition, that more than 100,000 people have signed, calling for the USGA and LPGA to move the U.S.Women’s Open out of the Trump National Golf Course. See the Petition HERE.
