Support The Bridge Act



"As we get closer to the day that Donald Trump actually becomes the President of the United States, the urgency of our movement grows exponentially. We will not be silent, we will not be silenced and we will unite to oppose any and all policies that hurt the American people. Our duty is to protect the heart of this nation, and be more prepared for the first day of his administration than he is." 
~ Our friend Michael Skolnik

Under Democratic President Barack Obama, many undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children were given protections under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). 

DACA provides a path to legal work and deferred action on deportation. It's intelligently done and worth supporting. Now, with a Trump presidency looming, DACA is in danger, as are the Dreamers who have benefited from it. 

In case you are not aware of who DACA protected, here's the basics,

If you arrived in the United States before age 16
and
If you were born on or after June 15, 1981
and
If you have lived in the United States since 2007

Then
if you can prove you are either in school
or
have a high school diploma or GED
or
have served in the US Military

Then you might be eligible to apply for a
work permit
student loans
a driver's license
a social security number

That's it. It doesn't make you a citizen, it just makes you legal to be here, it makes you a "documented" resident for a limited amount of time, 2 years, during which time you may try to apply for citizenship. No promises.

Trump has said he'll deport all undocumented immigrants, and his intended Attorney General has stated opposition to even legal immigration. If you want to know more about that you can read more here:

Project 1461

On Friday, December 9th, another smart move was made. The BRIDGE Act was introduced in the United States Senate by Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), which provides a clean, legislative solution for 750,000 Dreamers who earned work permits and temporary relief from deportation.

Whether you are emotionally effected by the outcome of the election, or just a patriotic citizen surprised by the moves already made by the presumptive President-Elect, it would be totally worth your time to call your Senator and voice your support of this work.

So...

Please call your United States Senator. "Well, I don't even know who that is," you say. "And I don't know how to get a phone number of a person I don't even know," you say. Well, no worries, we got you:

You can find out who your representative is and how to contact them here:

http://www.whoismyrepresentative.com/

and tell them that you support the BRIDGE Act.

SHARE AND ACT! CALL TODAY, TOMORROW, AND THE NEXT!!

Go ahead, you can do it now, we'll wait...(make sure you call your Senator's local office and their office in D.C.)

So, now that that's done, it felt great, right? You weighed in, good for you. What's next? 

You could also send a letter, a paper letter, showing your support. That's a bigger ask, but maybe you're so darn mad you'll be happy we even suggested it. 

Until next time, the struggle continues....

OPEN LETTER TO MR. COMEY

With all due respect, sir, where was the ticking clock? I mean I understand, on an episode of 24 or something - when the people need to friggin know or people will be killed, or shot, or something secret will be stolen - that you would have to weigh your options carefully and chose to act swiftly, sir.

I guess what I’m saying is, I'd understand IF there had been some sort of imminent threat against anyone or anything at all that you were aware of that you might have some standing for your actions. If that were the case, you could possibly feel compelled to send a last-minute memo to members of Congress just like the feckless one you sent today. I suppose there are things we the people don’t know, and somehow with that knowledge yourself, with you having been briefed on the situation by your people, you would theoretically feel the urgency of the situation would override the fact that your wording – and the timing – would perfectly tilt the playing field at the last minute of a Presidential election – in your party’s favor. I could see if it meant saving us, saving the world, I get it, sir.

However, we feel perhaps you may have missed some facts and figures in your observably partisan decision-making process, sir.
  • There has been no detailed damage done from any email EVER either 'sent to' or 'received from' Sec. Clinton - let alone during any of the years she was in office. 
  • Sec. Clinton hasn’t been in office in years, therefore, whatever this mythical damage was, if WE THE PEOPLE don’t know about it by now, it must be Classified, or nonexistent right?
  • You obviously chose to send your email to Congress with your little “update” without sending the information using any CLASSIFIED protocol. 
So, sir, without that ticking clock, without that imminent threat, what’s up with your timing? I repeat, why the questionable logic and timing of this memo to Congress today? Many people are saying these were coup tactics and your actions are unprecedented. It would seem anything important enough to break the law by dumping this into the public sphere so close to election day will indeed make history. Because, in absence of any ticking clock, your memo was kind of against the law, I think. It was designed to make you a Partisan hero, a mythical figure. But it was not an act done for the common good. If you really thought you needed to keep Congress up to date, you could have sent the memo as Classified, right? With all due respect, it really is starting to seem, sir, that you have been dangerously reckless with either our elections or Classified material. At the very least, I have to question your competency and, at the very worst, I have to question your intentions.

There are actual threats against our sacred domestic sovereignty. There is a very real threat of another country having committed several serious violations of cyber espionage against John Podesta and the DNC. Are you on that? Because I guarantee you, if they did a poll today, more people would want to see banner headlines telling us exactly what is going down with counter espionage in the cyber world. Tell us who the bad guys are. Tell us how you caught them. Did you catch them yet? I bet Putin would have taken care of anyone who hacked him like we’ve been hacked by now if it had happened to him, sir. Just sayin. Where are we on that? I bet if Hillary were in charge, they would be hunted down, like with Bin Laden. I can’t even imagine what hell would have been unleashed the minute it happened to Trump.

Nonetheless, we would all prefer that over hearing about you basically just combing over all of the Secretary’s correspondence repeatedly for no reason. Her Server still hasn’t been hacked. But Podesta’s emails were. Where’s your memo on that?

Your former First Lady and Secretary of State has been threatened repeatedly by her opponent with suggestions that others do her bodily harm. Where is that investigation? Where are we on that? Where are your updates to the public in the rise of “hate crimes” since Trump mounted the pulpit? That would seem like a real bonified justifiable threat. A rise in “hate crimes.” But you have been silent on the issue. People actually have been attacked and burned nationwide, and quite often in the name of Trump. Are you aware of that? Has your staff made you aware of any of those stories? Or just that they are still on the Weiner’s dick pics case? And then you agreed you could six degrees of separation this bitch and got to it.

Some people are saying that choosing to classify that memo as CLASSIFIED would have easily still soothed your conscience with Congress and preserved the integrity of our elections. Instead, you chose to sway the election, sir. There are those who have already said that isn’t worthy of your office and say you really should think about resigning, NOW. Perhaps you might want to start shredding now because once these investigations get going they have a way of spreading into everyone’s emails.

Perhaps you would like to plead innocent of the long-standing statutes and history of outlawing public statements by an official such as yourself of the kind you made before an election. Surely you must know those actions are going to be questioned and looked into? Well, apparently, yes you do because while you were sending that now historically incompetent email to Republican members of Congress, the Friday before an election, at the same time you messaged your entire staff at the FBI to let them know that you expected it to be misinterpreted.

You had the option of telling those members of Congress that you’d been briefed about something, sure, but you also had an obligation not to yell fire in a crowded theatre when there was no fire. That was more than reckless. That was dangerously reckless. Then your own staffed leaked your internal memo showing you were aware your Congressional memo would be fodder for one political Party, in essence, proving you were aware you were committing legal slander. Very clever legal slander.

You, sir, should be encouraged to step down as the Director of the FBI. The American Public can never trust you now. This is textbook. There was no smoking gun and no lives at risk. There was every reason to know this would be used as kindling to light some torches of feverish hate -  just like your loose lips sideshow at the hearing. We know you are not an idiot, or you wouldn’t be leader of the F.B.I. We know you are not a boob. We know you weigh every single word you say, and when and how you say it. You could have easily sent your “update” in a way that did not create a political bombshell, in the very top secret/classified way we-the-people would expect noninformation like this to go out, but you didn’t, did you, sir?

Where was the ticking clock? Just askin’.

Ocassional Repost


Sometimes we like to repost blogs of friends. 

So here's a post from a fellow American activist, our friend, Mike Page.
----------------------------------------------

The only way I, as one person, know how to voice my displeasure at what the GOP has been doing since election night 2008, is to VOTE AGAINST THE REPUBLICAN PARTY in every election until my dying breath.

I am a former Republican and a military veteran. My voting record, since I could first vote, went to Bush Sr (’88 and ’92), Dole (’96), Bush Jr (’00 and  ’04) and Obama (’08 and  ’12). Yet, over the past eight years, my eyes have been opened to the obstructionist, RACIST, presidential disrespectfulness, big business-over-people-supporting, 1%-pandering, corporate welfare-giving, social security-cutting, climate change-denying, war mongering, foreign policy-sabotaging (think Iran #47Traitors letter), military veteran-patronizing, national infrastructure non-funding, xenophobia-inciting, SCOTUS Appointee-blocking, Planned Parenthood-defunding, immigrant maligning, ARROGANCE, environmental catastrophe-inviting (think Keystone XL pipeline and EPA shuddering), union-busting, rich-getting-richer-while-poor-get-poorer-ensuring, refugee-bashing, presidential patriotism-questioning, NRA-ingratiating, income inequality-encouraging, human rights-preventing, ELITIST, war on women-perpetuating, HYPOCRITICAL, Jesus’ word-changing, sensible gun law-blocking, middle class-erasing, sacred land-selling, public land-drilling, PRIVATIZING, student loan lower interest rate-rejecting, Medicaid expansion-refusing, Equal Rights-dismissing, minimum wage hike-fighting, GREED-filled, equal pay-denying, path to citizenship-opposing, SCOTUS ruling-ignoring, gerrymandering, HATE-filled, vote suppressing, environmental deregulating, "Citizens United" supporting (think GOP-controlled SCOTUS), Koch-indebted, WHINING-because-you-didn’t-get-your-way, BIGOTRY, poor-and-less-fortunate-bashing, birther and fake scandal-creating (think also BENGHAZI, Hillary’s E-mails), presidential daughter-attacking, 60+time Obamacare-repealing (and failing), LYING, executive appointment-blocking, Peace Deal-threatening, jobs bill-ignoring, FAUX News-supporting, presidential suing at taxpayer expense, TRUMP-creating, TRUMP-supporting, TRUMP-endorsing, TRUMP-excusing, TRUMP-shackled, propagandizing, government closing and do-nothing positive GOP party that has been wreaking havoc since Obama took office.....and all this cloaked as the one true “religious,” “patriotic,” and "conservative" party and yet, contrary to the will of the American voter in two presidential elections!

While I don't agree with, nor support, all of Obama's policies, beliefs or actions, I give him credit for trying to do something to help everyday Americans struggling with day-to-day life issues which is more than I can say of the GOP party and leadership who made it their pledge, upon Obama's first election, to stop him from doing virtually anything during his presidency. Remember, it was Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who, instead of encouraging a bipartisan effort with the then-new president, is quoted as saying, "The single most important thing we [the GOP] want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president." Additionally, a Time magazine article outlined: “If he [Obama] was for it,” former [Republican] Ohio Senator George Voinovich explained, “we had to be against it."


McConnell and his henchmen failed in keeping Obama limited to one term but, even with this loss, he and his colleagues in the GOP have kept their second promise. They have done absolutely NOTHING to help the struggling American economy nor it's struggling people in well over seven and a half years and we pay them millions in salary and benefits for their inadequacy and lack of work product! The rest of us would have been fired long ago if we produced absolutely zero for those who pay our salaries!

It is just remarkable what this president has accomplished, what with the obsessive obstacles purposefully thrown in his path. Imagine what could have been accomplished if those elected, on the Right, actually worked with this president and not become the Party of HATE!

I'm no huge fan of Hillary, and yet, between these two candidates, she is light years ahead of what Trump offers in virtually every category. She will get my vote in November as voting for any other candidate is a vote for Trump. I could really care less is if you don't agree with me, so save your breath, and your hate. Trump is lying to everyone and he is going to do nothing but destroy America from within. ALL evidence, over three-plus decades of news reports, show that Trump is out for himself. He doesn't give a damn about the average citizen, despite anything he might say.

It’s past time to change the game plan and start benching the Republican party. They should not be rewarded with any vote for the incessant, intentional, obstruction of the last eight years. Please vote BLUE down the entire ballot on November 8th. Progress depends upon this. I am so done with these haters!

Don't just agree with me - Please VOTE every single time and encourage likeminded family and friends to do the same. NOTHING changes if we remain apathetic to voting!

------------

NOTE: Many on the Right, after seeing this essay have accused me of lying about my veteran status, or of ever having been a Republican in the first place. I welcome the challenge as to the first accusation. Please report me for "stolen valor." I am who I say I am. As for the second allegation, well, blind allegiances are just not my thing which is why, I believe, I was born with eyes, ears, and a brain. Plus, I'm not a white nationalist, so I likely wouldn't fit in with the Trump crowd. For those who quickly dismiss this essay with “TL;DR” (too long, didn’t read), maybe you should take some time to read this as it affects YOU also.

Things Trump Said He Never Said



Did You Watch the Debate?
On Monday, September 26, 2016 two American candidates met on stage to debate their worthiness to be President of the United States. It was the first of three head to head match ups scheduled for the contenders this election cycle. News outlets are reporting about 84 million people watched it on television and countless more watched online, so it was big deal.

For those paying close attention to this particular season of all things POTUS, we can tell you blood pressures were raised on both sides of the aisle, stress levels went up nationally, and certainly - for many of those watching - an enormous amount of alcohol was consumed throughout the evening around debate watching campfires worldwide.

Once the dust had settled, the fact-checkers started reporting their findings. Trump had interrupted Hillary Clinton a total of 51 times - mostly interjecting with one word statements like, "wrong" and "not," but sometimes he splurged on extra words giving us a full sentence of interruption, like when he said, "I never said that."

Here's a list of the things Trump said he never said:

1. Global Warming is a Hoax Invented by the Chinese

During the debate Trump said, "I did not - I do not say that."
Actually, Trump first tweeted it in 2012, and since then has repeated it on se
veral occasions, including on Dec. 30, 2015 to a crowd at a rally in Hilton Head, South Carolina.



2. Trump Would Negotiate Down the National Debt of the United States


During the debate Donald blurted out, "Wrong."

In May of 2016, Trump suggested he would try to persuade creditors to accept something less than full payment. Apparently, this is a special skill that Trump has mastered throughout his decades as a prominent businessman - paying less than he actually owes. For most people, that means a credit downgrade, which is probably why no U.S. bank is willing to loan him money anymore.

3. Donald Trump Supported the Invasion of Iraq

While Hillary was speaking Donald bellowed, "Wrong."
On multiple occasions Donald J. Trump said he was for invading Iraq before the war began. Donald expressed support in an interview with Howard Stern. The transcript of the Stern interview shows Stern asking Trump if he favored invading Iraq. Trump replied, “Yeah, I guess so. You know, I wish the first time it was done correctly.” Two years after the war started Trump gave an interview saying he thought we should make sure we grab all the oil while we are there.

4. Donald Trump Would Start a War with Iran

During the debate Donald interjected, "That would not start a war."
At a September campaign event in Florida just before the debate, Trump said, “When they circle our beautiful destroyers with their little boats and they make gestures at our people that they shouldn’t be allowed to make, they will be shot out of the water, OK?”

5. Trump Said Pregnancy is an Inconvenience to Employers

Trump once again interrupted Clinton to say, "I never said that."
In an October 2004 interview with NBC's Dateline, Trump said pregnancy is "a wonderful thing for the woman, it's a wonderful thing for the husband, it's certainly an inconvenience for a business. And whether people want to say that or not, the fact is it is an inconvenience for a person that is running a business."

Is Trump Really Wealthy?

We all know that Trump was born rich. But did you know when his father died, he inherited so much money that he was superrich? Ok, so you probably knew that too. 

Born Rich and Incompetent
Yes, in 1978 Trump was worth $100 million. So he should have been able to bankroll any projects he was involved in all by himself, right? Of course that isn't the point, is it? Trump reminds his crowds regularly that using 'other people's money' is the way to go. So even though he had the money to start any kind of business he could ever dream of, or back up any loan he ever took to do just that, so far six of his hotels and casinos have filed for bankruptcy. 

Trump started a mortgage company once and that crashed 18 months later. It was called Trump Mortgage. He started an airline called Trump Airlines that defaulted on a $245 million loan forcing him to surrender ownership. Like ALL of Trump’s investment opportunities, people walk away burnt, while he gets money for putting his name on it. No seriously, every time you investigate, or ask, you hear the same thing. He even invented a board game called ‘Trump: The Game’ that is so stupid that it’s delivered 60% less sales than projected. He couldn’t even figure out how to market a kids’ game.

His Trump Steaks so underperformed that Newsweek reports the steaks were pulled 2 months after being put up for sale in Sharper Image catalogues. Donald started Trump Vodka, but production was stopped on Trump's vodka because they both lied about their kosher status and also failed to meet distribution requirements.

Trump Magazine was an actual thing and it FAILED in its 2nd year. Trump even had a Travel Website called gotrump.com and it was shut down in a year. How do you fail at a Travel Website??? He tried to go up against 'The Tour de France' with a little something he called 'The Tour de Trump' and he failed. After two years that event took his name off of all marketing materials completely. 

Whatever He Touches Fails
He tried to go up against the NFL with the USFL. He made so many blunders in that area, overpaying players, and insisting the league move their games from fall to spring, that he single-handedly destroyed that league and now they too are nonexistent. 

He created something called The Trump Network, it was a multi-level marketing scheme that he so mismanaged the project closed down after two years. He tried to go up against Pepsi and created Trump Ice (water in a bottle). The only place you can find his water is on his properties but he brags about it like it is somehow a real brand. 

$100 Million x 40 Years Equals
So what did he turn his $100 million into? I mean he started with a bundle, where exactly is he now? Well, we don’t know that yet because he is playing the dance of the seven veils with his tax returns. And depending on how things play out, we may never know. What we do know is this. He isn’t worth billions. We also know that if he had just left his money in mutual funds, and not lifted a finger his whole life, he would be worth billions. So instead, he seems to have spent a lifetime starting companies that have failed, offering investment opportunities where investors lost money, and starting huge projects that have repeatedly gone bankrupt…leaving the employees and subcontractors screwed.  There is nothing about this one man’s credentials that bears merit. Not one thing.

He is Comprised Financially
And worse, much worse, he is indebted to so many foreign based individuals, and hundreds of foreign based businesses, at this point in his businessman career that there is literally not ONE decision he could make in the White House that would not directly affect the amount of money in his pocket or in the pockets of his children. He has been blackballed by United States banks because of his incompetence and so for some time now has had to depend on the kindness of foreign nationals to pay for his lifestyle. And despite that very obvious fact, Donald J. Trump the GOP candidate has made no effort to diversify himself from this predicament at all. 

So, wow, GOP. Great job. We count on you to come up with worthy adversaries. We count on you to elevate the conversation and help run the country. But once again you disappoint. And this time you have let this man - who is financially incapable of leading a scout troop - be in charge of our national conversations of leadership. You let a convicted bigot and hate monger get to the microphone. Shame on you. You can't even use the excuse he is really good at business to justify it either.

Trump The Builder


Well, it's that time again. Talking heads talking about who is going to be President of the Free World 24/7. And it goes on for more than a year every four years. It's really unheard of and it's turned the business of running for office into a business in and of itself.

The length must have something to do with the continued celebration of independenting Americans practice once a year on July 4th. It must be in a continued effort to separate Church from State, to separate us from our British past, that we take so damn long to pick a President because the UK process typically lasts no longer than four weeks. Can you imagine?

In the United States, much the way Christmas has jellyfished over into neighboring months, the election of an American President siphons cash from the electorate through "campaign donations" more than 25% of their adult lives. Just sayin'.

This time around we have two frontrunners worth speaking of. Jill Stein thinks cell phones are killing our children, and Gary Johnson doesn't know what LPO is (Aleppo), so it's down to Hillary Rodham Clinton and Donald J. Trump. We don't have time to concentrate on fully vetting them both between now and November, and the world has had a microscope up Hillary's a** for over 25 years, so we figure that side's been well documented.

In an effort to help any friends out within the reach of this keyboard, we have, however, started to "extremely vet" the GOP candidate. And we've started with his only claim to the thrown, his business practices.

Bon appetite.

Donald Trump The Builder

Patriotically yours,

The Policy Geek

What's Up With Hillary Clinton?

What's Up With Hillary Clinton?

I have been paying attention to Hillary Clinton my whole adult life. No politician I have ever watched has ever gone through what I see her going through and yet she is still standing.
