Trump Violated U.S. Security

by Ben Hoffman

Trump was warned about Michael Flynn, not once but TWICE, and he still appointed him National Security Advisor. That shows total disregard for our nation’s security.

Stephen Colbert’s Anti-Trump Rant

by Ben Hoffman

“Mr. President, you’re not the POTUS, you’re the ‘gloat-us.’ You’re the glutton with the button. You’re a regular ‘Gorge Washington.’ You’re the ‘presi-dunce,’ but you’re turning into a real ‘prick-tator.’

Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine. You have more people marching against you than cancer. You talk like a sign-language gorilla that got hit in the head. In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c–k holster.”

Republicans are taking away our freedoms

by Ben Hoffman
  • Republicans are against the legalization of marijuana and are trying to take away state’s rights to legalize it. They are even against decriminalizing it!
  • Republicans are trying to take away a woman’s right to choose to get an abortion, which is guaranteed by the Constitution.
  • Republicans are taking away our freedom from religion. The anti-abortion argument is 100% based on religion.

Trump and His White Supremacists

by Ben Hoffman
  • Sebastian Gorka, who was one of Trump’s national security advisors, is a member of a Hungarian Nazi group.
  • Steve Bannon ran the Breitbart website, which is home to the alt-right movement — a white-supremacist movement.
  • White-supremacist “reporters” Mike Cernovich and Cassandra Fairbanks recently made a hand sign in the White House that is used to signify “white power.”

Trump disparages our Constitution: Calls it “an archaic system.”

by Ben Hoffman

On his 100th day in office on Saturday, facing historically low popularity ratings, a succession of intractable foreign crises and multiple investigations of his links with Moscow, Donald Trump reminded the nation that 1 May was Loyalty Day.

The day is a US tradition dating back to the cold war, when it was a bolster to stop May Day becoming a rallying point for socialists and unionised workers, but for an embattled president learning politics on the job it has an added resonance.

In an interview with Fox News to mark the 100-day mark, he declared himself “disappointed” with congressional Republicans, despite his many “great relationships” with them.

He blamed the constitutional checks and balances built in to US governance. “It’s a very rough system,” he said. “It’s an archaic system … It’s really a bad thing for the country.”

Kind of ironic that Trump disparages our Constitution on “Loyalty Day.” He thinks it’s a day to be loyal to him.

Trump’s First 100 Days — Making America Great Again?

by Ben Hoffman

Here are some of Donald Trump’s “accomplishments” in his first 100 days:

  • Has been in constant violation of the U.S. Constitution by using the office of president to benefit his business interests.
  • Most hated president of any president in history so early in his presidency.
  • Had to fire his security advisor Michael Flynn for violating the Constitution.
  • Botched raid on Yemen resulted in needless death of Navy Seal.
  • Only president in history to have SCOTUS nominee approved through nuclear option.
  • Only president in history to have three executive orders ruled unConstitutional during his first 100 days.
  • More to come…

What drives Trump’s policies? It sure as hell isn’t the interests of Americans

by Ben Hoffman

Trump’s main propaganda slogan has been “Make America Great Again,” but apparently, he’s only making things “great” for big money donors. His repeal of Obama’s executive orders have helped the coal, oil, and drug industries. He’s allowing our rivers and lakes to be polluted. He’s allowing more emissions to pollute our air.

In other words, he’s fucking destroying America. Here’s a good article from the NY Times detailing some of the nasty things he’s doing:

The Antifa emblem:
Antifa logo

Anti-fascists are making their voices heard. A few Antifa patriots were seen at a recent Colorado Rapids game displaying an Antifa banner:

It’s good to see real Americans fighting back against the alt-right, neo-nazis, or whatever else the deplorable Trump supporters are called.

Stop Fascism: Support Antifa

by Ben Hoffman

Trump supporters are unAmerican assholes. The Antifa (anti-fascists) are the true patriots.

  • Trump is violating the U.S. Constitution by using the office of president to promote his business interests.
  • Trump is not our legitimate president. He would not have won if not for Russia interfering with our election. He is being investigated for colluding with Russia to steal the election.
  • Trump has business ties to Russian oligarchs.
  • Trump lies 74% of the time.
  • Trump had to pay 25 million dollars to settle the Trump University fraud lawsuit.

You can’t simultaneously support Trump and love America.

U.S. deploys carrier to contentious South China Sea

by Ben Hoffman

JAKARTA, Indonesia — The United States deployed aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson to patrol the increasingly contentious South China Sea, despite Beijing’s warnings not to challenge its sovereignty in the resource-rich sea.

The Navy described Saturday’s launch as the beginning of “routine operations” in the South China Sea. China claims most of the sea as its own, despite overlapping territorial and jurisdictional claims from the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei.

Last week at a news conference, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Geng Shuang, denounced advance news of the deployment.

“China has indisputable sovereignty over the South China Sea islands and their adjacent waters,” he said. “China respects and upholds the freedom of navigation and overflight in the South China Sea which countries enjoy under international law, but firmly opposes any country’s attempt to undermine China’s sovereignty and security in the name of the freedom of navigation and overflight.”

He added that China urged the U.S. to “refrain from challenging China’s sovereignty and security” in the sea.

Both North Korea and China are challenging Trump’s rhetoric. Is he all talk and no action, or will he respond? We shall see.

Join the Resistance!!!

by Ben Hoffman

Protest Trump’s Inauguration

Trump is not our legitimate president. He was aided by Russia in the election, committed fraud and bribery, and is a sexual predator. He lies 73% of the time! With his business conflicts of interest, he’ll be violating the Constitution the moment he’s sworn in.

Here is a partial list of what we can do to stop Trump from taking office, or at least disrupt the inauguration. I’ll be adding to the list as we get closer.

Note: Check the laws in your state before engaging in political activities. I am not responsible for any legal repercussions that may arise out of any of these actions. That said, our new president is a criminal and should be in prison. Laws don’t seem to mean anything when you’re wealthy.

Resistance activities (pronounced ree-zis-TAWNZ)

  • Join the protests on January 20th. See disruptj20.org and other sites for more information. Protests will be occurring across the country. The 20th is on a Friday, so we can keep it going well into the night.
  • Disrupt the parade. Bush’s ceremony was halted when protesters pelted his limousine with eggs and banged on it. We can do even better with Trump.
  • Bring a 20,000 watt PA system (or whatever is available) to the inauguration grounds and blast out derogatory comments about Trump. Exercise your 1st Amendment rights.
  • Go to Trump properties and scream at his tenants and patrons the way pro-lifers do at abortion clinics.
  • Use a drone to fly banners over the ceremony. Or if you’re mechanically and electrically inclined, rig up a system to drop water balloons from a drone onto the heads of Trump personnel. That would be a hoot!  LOL!  Use your imagination, but don’t get caught.
  • Protest in front of establishments that openly supported Trump. Disrupt their businesses.
  • Tell your right-wing neighbor to fuck off any time you see him.
  • Arm yourself — especially if you’re a minority. Things are getting ugly, and they’re only going to get worse.
  • Protest at right-wing churches.

Fight back. We can’t let our country turn into a fascist totalitarian regime.
