Holy Gold Toilet Batman. Where are Ivanka, Jared, Jr & Eric...

Should the media be keeping an eye on their whereabouts, so they dont sneak off to Saudi Arabia from a private runway? I'm guessing they already have a jet lined up for just this kind of "in case of emergency, break glass" scenario.

Anybody know if this Trumphumper campaign activity is legal?

I tried a couple of Google searches, but came up empty. Not sure if i know the correct terms or if it's even covered under state or Federal law. I just came into this information today, but according to the Postmaster of this location, they've been at it since yesterday or earlier. Postmaster said he cant do anything as they're not technically on the post office property. Basically a couple of local Trumphumpers are standing on the sidewalk, on either side of a local town's post office driveway, with signs. The signs read "defend Trump!" and "Impeach Schiff!".

There is a school across the street about half a block down. They're creating a traffic hazard as people are stopping in the middle of the street to read the signs before they turn. I imagine these idiots are looking for a fight, as the town is a democratic majority town. I thought I would start the Wack-A-Mole process with a phone call to the appropriate agency if this is illegal in California. Should I call the police? The rep's office? State office of some sort?

Great! Green Party Space Cadet Moonbeam is %#!@ing Up the Senate Race For Sinema in AZ...

Angela Green has currently siphoned off the needed votes to put Sinema ahead, instead of behind, INSPITE of telling her fellow Space Cadets to vote for Sinema! Brand NEW to politics, DipS. didnt pull out of the race before the ballots were printed. If Sinema loses, we're down another Senate seat. This is Flakey Flake's seat. If we lose it, because of her, look for Space Cadet Moonbeam dart boards and inflatable punching bags for sale on ebay. DIE AZGP!!! DIE!

Mcsally - 49.4%
Sinema - 48.4%
Green - 2.2%

Look for the (D) or Democratic next to the candidates names and fill it in! You do NOT have to complete the entire ballot for it to count, so go ahead and VOTE!

North Dakota Tribes **Rockin The Vote!** In Other States Too! Donations needed...

For those that dont know how North Dakota has attempted to suppress Native American votes and WHY they're doing it:

https://www.thedailybeast.com/north-dakotas-racist-voter-id-law-is-already-backfiring

One of the groups who works to protect and enable Native American votes, Fourdirections are working their butts off, to get all the various tribes' members the ability to vote and to get them to the polls. Some details are here in their twitter feed.

Fourdirections are providing FREE ID's to members who have residential addresses, but have only their old PO box ID's. They've implemented the idea, to create reservation addresses, and assign them on the spot, now, and at the polls, to the many members who dont have one. In addition, they are mobilizing and will transport all eligible voters who need rides to the polls.

We need ND senator Heitkamp to keep this seat, and she needs the tribal vote to win. Her seat is crucial, even if we dont win the senate this election, as it could help us win a majority in 2020.

AND Fourdirections are also helping to physically get tribal voters to the polls in other states, like Arizona. Our senate candidate has a very slim lead in Arizona, so every vote is crucial.

Here's their Crowdpac donation page (read the updates- it's promising):

https://www.crowdpac.com/campaigns/388864/take-back-the-senate-in-2018-by-getting-native-americans-to-the-polls?ref_code=carousel&source_code=fourdirections

Edit: They now have a Paypal link on their website, for those that prefer to use PP, (and you can include a short note with your donation):

http://www.fourdirectionsvote.com/donation/

They need donations to keep their efforts going. Gas for rides to polling places, meals for volunteers, supplies for ID cards & letters, etc.

If, like me, you're angry at the horrible injustices our country has, and STILL is, perpetrating against Native Americans, here's your chance to stand with them in their fight to be heard- DONATE!
