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.

Join the Resistance!!!

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.

Libertarians behave like little children

by Ben Hoffman

LibertariansInABar

Libertarians believe they are real rebels, because they’ve politicized the protest of children who scream through tears, “You’re not the boss of me.” The rejection of all rules and regulations, and the belief that everyone should have the ability to do whatever they want, is not rebellion or dissent. It is infantile naïveté.
