My New Hero


Sally Yates, acting Attorney General, told her department to not enforce trump's unconstitutional and inhuman immigration dictum. Fired by trump within hours. A woman worth of our respect and honor. An example of what we have to do, what our legislators have to do, an example of what America should be about. We are not the minions of this sorry-ass excuse for a man that 59 fucking million uninformed, misinformed, simply wrong people voted for. 

Let's follow her example, let's force our congress that are seemingly on our side to follow her example, let's resist the 4th Reich that trump is trying to bring upon our now semi-democracy. 

I'm not advocating the motto the Philippines once had about politics: "Ballots and Bullets". Yet. 

Cheers,
Mike

  1. Trump fires someone who is sworn to uphold the constitution as a lawyer. Absurd. This is like a bad reality tv show playing over and over again.

  3. Is a coup in the offing Mike? Many are murmuring. This is some kind of nightmare.

    1. I saw a pew research poll today that had the american people equally divided in approval/disapproval of his executive orders, including the immigration one.
      No, a coup is not in the offing. Other things, yes.

  4. Like the old days, yes? Wake up and think, what am I protesting today. Exams be damned.

    1. I'm glad, in some ways, I'm not the 23 year old me just getting back from Vietnam. I joined the VVAW. With these circumstances, I would go for the Weather Underground.

  5. Another reply- follow this link to see Yates asked by Jeff Sessions about the very question that got her fired

  6. Yes, she's a hero indeed. Trump believes he's still on the Apprentice TV show, barking "You're fired!" and everyone applauds. I hope he'll be forced to wake up when the protests and the boos become louder than the applause and cringing acceptance.

    1. I fear his pathology is much more malignant than one can 'wake up from'. It's severe, it won't stop, it's not 'curable'. He will simply deny that there is significant opposition, that he, and he alone, represents the will of the people. Does that language sound familiar? It's the same as Hitler used. "I am Germany. I am the will of the people."

    2. I'm afraid you're right, Mike. I'm hiding behind unwarranted optimism.

  7. How about "Impeach and Replace". 'Course then we'd be stuck with Reverend Pence.

    1. Yeah, 'twixt the rocks and the shoals, or the devil and the deep blue sea.

    1. Or just go straight to the top, send emails and comments to Putin to pass along.

  9. She sees her job as to enforce the law which was passed by Congress and she does do that well. Her job is not to agree with the Dictator in Chief.

    1. The irony of her questioning from J. Sessions a year or so ago is so......blatant and obvious. He asked her if she'd be willing to say 'no' to a president. Of course, he was talking about a real President, Obama.

  10. I've been reading scary stuff about how Trump appears to be making coup d'etat moves.

    1. Not to mention semi-threatening to invade Mexico.

  11. She is indeed a hero! I think she would have had more of an impact if she held a press conference and announced her resignation (and why) during it. Either way, she has more guts than all of the republicans in the congress and senate, who were so dead set against him, and are now kissing his bright orange ass.

    I wonder how long before he shows up wearing a "Gaddafi" style military uniform with tons of medals on it.

    1. Did you notice the REMF, actually he isn't even that high on the food chair, the motherfucker sitting at a desk with the Medal of Honor on the wall behind him? He shouldn't even be in the same room with one.
