Welcome to 2018, the year we take back America or go down with the sinking ship. Are you ready?
Donald Trump came back from his extended golfing vacation just in time to hear about a new book that reiterates how stupid he is hits the shelves. Well, it wasn’t supposed to come out until next week, but Trump tried to sue the author and publisher to stop the publication, so they released it early.
I’m not going to read it because it seems like most of what’s in it has been in the news over the past year, the author is a tiny bit questionable, and well, I don’t want to hear more about the chaos caused by our Moron in Chief. But the author supposedly has tapes of many of the conversations and the key item I’ve seen so far is Steve Bannon has confirmed that Trump colluded with Russia and that the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russia was treasonous.
Billionaire hedge fund manager and Democratic donor Tom Steyer says he purchased a copy of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House for each and every member of the United States Congress.
Oh yeah, Jeff Sessions is trying to make pot use a major crime again.
What can you do next?
This week, I want to share some articles and videos about what we NEED to do to save our country from tyranny. It’s definitely worth taking some time over the weekend to dig into these and make your own tactical to do list for the year.
