My School is Against tRump's Regime

As I was putting my materials down and getting ready to teach, I noticed a bunch of these flyers. I was very proud of my school, and I wanted to share.


What would happen if tRump actually sought Congressional approval?

Do you think McTurtle and crew would just give him carte blanche? I think they would, and that's why he isn't even asking.

Seriously?! Obama had the Brits do the wiretapping?

Is the right wing out of its fucking mind with this bullshit? Since when can an US president order British intelligence to conduct surveillance?

I will not be posting any right wing clickbait. You can Google for yourself.

Pussy Grabbing on a Global Scale

Let's call it what it is.

tRump gets excited over something and he reacts in a childish way. Never mind the legality of it. The impulse to attack Syria came about when he saw the opportunity to gain a few points of approval. Screw getting congressional approval for the attack! Just grab away. The impulse to send the Navy ships to NK came after Kim Jong Un dared tRump to do something about his nukes (fire one bullet and it's on). Never mind that there could be serious, deadly repercussions. Just grab! In this country, tRump wants every Muslim checked, double checked, and triple checked. Every Hispanic person is under suspicion. Don't think of the constitutionality or the nut jobs who attack American citizens because you said they should. Just grab!

Throughout his life, tRump has had big name lawyers guarding him from lawsuits when he acted impulsively. His "friends" and family vouch for him on the media. He has not suffered the consequences from his rude behavior that anyone else would have suffered. Through myriad enablers, tRump has reached old age without learning basic lessons about what is acceptable behavior that a normal five year old knows.

Only now his enablers happen to be congress and the attorney general.

If you're atheist and believe all 3 branches of govt are corrupt

edit: and don't trust the American people who put tRump in the WH.

How can you trust that tRump and his goons will eventually get their comeuppance?

First SC Decision for New Appointee Gorsuch

Newly appointed to the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch gave his opinion on the case of United Airlines v Asian Doctor today. Judge Gorsuch read his opinion out loud for reporters who had gathered at the steps of the Supreme Court building. Without a trace of emotion in either his facial expressions or vocal intonation, the judge said, "I hereby find in favor of the corporation, United Airlines. Based on extensive review of the bylaws regarding involuntary bumping of passengers that are hidden in very small print somewhere buried deep in the recesses of United Airline's website, I see no other choice than to fully absolve United Airlines, and by extension airport police, of all culpability. While I feel for the brutalized Asian man, he should have known better. Enforcing these rules that are meant to serve large corporations means that, sometimes, passengers must be beaten senseless and humiliatingly dragged off of planes." Justices Ginsburg and Sotomayor listened to justice Gorsuch with jaws dropped in abject horror to the marble floor of the court building.

Trump Has Already Spent Almost Double Obamas Annual Travel Budget

This marked the seventh weekend that President Trump spent at what he has come to calling the “Winter White House” since taking office on Jan. 20. It is estimated that each of the president’s trips to Mar-a-Lago costs taxpayers around $3 million. Meaning that since taking office, Trump has already spent around $21 million in taxpayer cash for his weekend travels, which also double as great advertisements for his Trump-branded properties.

In contrast, President Obama’s travel was estimated to have cost taxpayers somewhere between $85 million-$96 million, according to Public Citizen, a progressive advocacy group. Taking the highest estimate into account, that would translate into $12 million per year.

If Trump keeps up the current pace of trips, he could spend $60 million in taxpayer cash solely to visit Mar-a-Lago this year. And, of course, that doesn’t even come close to estimating the full cost of protecting the president and his family. The most obvious additional cost involves First Lady Melania Trump and son Barron, who are staying in New York at least until September. The New York Police Department has said it costs as much as $146,000 per day to protect the first family.


Syria strikes: Site of chemical attack hit again

Link: http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/08/middleeast/syria-strikes-russia-donald-trump/

(CNN)New airstrikes targeted a town in Syria that was hit by a chemical attack earlier this week, activists said, less than a day after the US bombarded a Syrian air base to "send a message" to the Assad regime.
It wasn't immediately clear who conducted the strikes on Khan Sheikhoun, which was hit on Friday and Saturday, though only Russian and Syrian regime aircraft have been bombing that area of rebel-held Idlib province.
The latest attacks come after a missile strike early Friday by the United States on a base in western Syria that the United States says was used to launch Tuesday's chemical attack, which left more than 85 people dead and hundreds more injured.

Saw Marc Maron Live Tonight

First twenty minutes were bashing Li'l Donnie. I noticed that most, like 80% of his jokes were very similar to what I've seen on DU.

For tRump, Humanitarian Aid is a Missile Attack

Really? Couldn't change the narrative on refugees. Millions in missiles, though. Now that's much easier to comprehend.
