Just Ignore His Supporters

Personal opinion here, but I think it might be best to simply ignore any and all tRump supporters...COMPLETELY. That means not responding to them on social media. It means not responding to them on the streets.

Does it mean they will go away? Probably not. But is it better to give them a voice for their lunacy?

Think back to how you were told to respond to bullies in school. Just ignore their taunts. Eventually they will give up. If they get no reaction, not even a trace, then they should realize you are strong enough to resist them.

With tRump supporters any attempt at meaningful dialogue is wasted effort. They know how we feel and why. They must figure out the truth for themselves and in their own time (if at all).

Focus your energies toward something constructive and believe that you are having a positive impact. My advice. Take it for what it's worth.

tRump is a cockroach

One of those big, nasty Madagascar hissing roaches. Except he doesn't have the sense God gave all the other cockroaches. No, when you turn on the lights, he stays in the middle of the room. All the other roaches run and hide. Not tRumproach. He raises up and hisses at you, hisses all sorts of incomprehensible garbage about how he's the greatest and no one can stomp on him.

Come on intelligence agencies, DROP THE SHOE!

What is the point of detainment and deportation?

It creates a logistical nightmare. It requires hundreds of man hours that could be devoted to something of real benefit. It overburdens infrastructure (housing detainees). It disrupts business and causes who knows how much financial loss.

So, someone tell me why.

Just to create chaos?

Focus Should be On Congress Approval Rating

Two year, people. Are the ones who voted rethug in 2016 going to vote the same again in 2018, or are they going to see the connection between lousy, treasonous tRump and the congress who keeps him in control? We should be upset that the MSM doesn't give adequate coverage of the nasty things congress does while giving disproportionate coverage to the stupid things Don Small Crowds does (or tweets).

It will take hurricane season for tRump to stay in the WH

Even when he can't go to Florida, he is still going to play golf on the front lawn of the WH. You know he's thinking of putting in a mini-golf course.

What Influence Can Foreign Govts Have Over tRump?

We have Trudeau inviting Syrians to live in Canada. There is the British parliament set to decide whether or not to revoke their invitation for a tRump visit.

What course of action can any foreign government take with this administration that will have an affect? How can anyone diplomatically scold a five year old throwing a temper tantrum? Remember, that the best way to treat a temper tantrum is to ignore the child until he/she decides it is in his/her best interest to stop. However, tRump believes in isolationism, and he has his supporters believing in it, too. I don't know that Britain telling him he is not invited will have any impact. Nor do I feel that another country inviting refugees sends any kind of message to tRump. Instead, these moves play right into his tiny hands.

So what is the next step? Sanctions against the U.S.? Would any country be willing to try that when it is obvious that they will be hurting a lot more Americans who hate tRump than support him?

Helpful Vox Article on Congress Investigating Russian Connections

I found this helpful because it does a good job of explaining the different types of committees, how much power each has, and how partisan each is. Maybe no one else needs this, but I'll post it just in case:

Let's all send tRump some cheese

to go with his whine.



Could be the next big meme and really drive him over the edge.

McCain takes down tRump

Looks like McCain has had just about enough.

From WaPo: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/02/17/john-mccain-just-systematically-dismantled-donald-trumps-entire-worldview/?utm_term=.8f3996da2faf

John McCain is increasingly mad as hell about President Trump. And on Friday, he went after Trump — hard.

During a speech at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, the Republican senator from Arizona delivered a pointed and striking point-by-point takedown of Trump's worldview and brand of nationalism. McCain didn't mention Trump's name once, but he didn't have to.

And even considering the two men's up-and-down history and the terrible things Trump has said about McCain, it was a striking display from a senior leader of a party when it comes to a president of the same party.

In his speech, McCain suggested the Western world is uniquely imperiled this year — even more so than when Barack Obama was president — and proceeded to question whether it will even survive.

“In recent years, this question would invite accusations of hyperbole and alarmism; not this year,” McCain said. “If ever there were a time to treat this question with a deadly seriousness, it is now.”

Message I got from my senator re: Sessions appointment

I sent both of my senators a letter about opposing Sessions. This response seems like nothing more than an f-you. Guess who I will definitely not be supporting in 2018.


Dear Mr. Lord,

Thank you for contacting me regarding the confirmation of Senator Jeff Sessions as United States Attorney General. I appreciate you taking the time to write. It is an honor to serve you in the United States Senate and I hope you will continue to write with your thoughts and ideas on moving our country forward.

On February 8, 2017, with my support, the Senate voted to confirm Senator Jeff Sessions as Attorney General by a vote of 52-47. He was officially sworn in on February 9, 2017. Senator Sessions has served as a Senator for the state of Alabama since 1996 and previously served as Alabama Attorney General. Article II of the Constitution requires that the President obtain the advice and consent of the Senate on Presidential appointments.

Senator Sessions has had an impressive legal career and has a profound commitment to upholding the rule of law. I have had the opportunity to work with him in the Senate and witness firsthand his strong record of bipartisanship. I am confident in his ability to serve as the chief law enforcement officer in the country.

Again, thank you for contacting me, and do not hesitate to do so again when an issue is important to you.

Sincerely,

Cory Gardner
United States Senator
