Resistance Update 3/17/18
Every fucking day, I pray for Donald Trump to die.
Now that I’ve said that, let’s move on to what’s happening and what we can do next.
OK, it’s been a lot longer than a week since my last post. I’m not even going to try to keep up. Here are the two latest things that should be blowing our minds but are becoming just par for the course with the Trump regime: Trump just fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe
last night, just short of his retirement, in order to make a statement and deprive him of his pension after 21 years of service to our country. McCabe kept memos about all of his conversations with Trump and the WSJ is now reporting that McCabe has given his notes to Mueller. Trump is flipping out on Twitter.
This is part of his overall recent attempts to strip the government of everyone who won’t kiss his ring. He’s working his way to Mueller, although if he has the balls or lack of brains to get that guy fired is beyond me. Nevertheless, we are watching a coup of our nation in real time. This is not a joke. To catch up on the latest, read Amy Siskind’s latest list
. To hear some ideas about the repercussions of this latest dictatorial act by Trump, watch Elizabeth Cronise Mclaughlin’s latest video: Oh yeah, and it turns out that 50 million Americans had their info leaked from Facebook by Cambridge Analytica in 2016
. The company has now been banned from FB. A little late, dontcha think?
“So the firm harvested private information from the Facebook profiles of more than 50 million users without their permission, according to former Cambridge employees, associates and documents, making it one of the largest data leaks in the social network’s history. The breach allowed the company to exploit the private social media activity of a huge swath of the American electorate, developing techniques that underpinned its work on President Trump’s campaign in 2016.”
