RESISTANCE RECESS: Find a resistance event near you

quote [ We will show up at our elected officials' events, town halls, other public appearances, and even plan our own events, if they refuse to meet with us ]

A handy tool for getting involved. Go see your elected reps, let them know what participatory democracy looks like.

Norma McCorvey, Jane Roe of Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, dies at 69

quote [ She was desperate for a way out of an unwanted pregnancy when she became the unnamed plaintiff in the landmark case. ]

A pivotal, complex figure of modern US history, she later switched sides.

The Tiny Trump Subreddit

quote [ As the name suggests, Tiny Trumps features photoshopped pics of the president where not only his hands are small, but every other body part. ]

Resistance in mockery.

Walmart sued for misrepresenting 'craft' beer

quote [ Walmart’s line of beers “is a wholesale fiction created by the defendant … designed to deceive customers into purchasing the craft beer at a higher, inflated price,” the lawsuit claims. ]

Vital news on a subject near and dear to my heart.

Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence

quote [ American law enforcement and intelligence agencies intercepted the communications around the same time that they were discovering evidence that Russia was trying to disrupt the presidential election by hacking into the Democratic National Committee ]

It's looking like Flynn may have been just the tip of the iceberg. If so, we might be looking at the fastest presidential flameout since William Henry Harrison. Fasten seatbelts.

John Oliver talks truth to power, literally

quote [ Donald Trump spreads a lot of false information thanks to his daily consumption of morning cable news. If only we could sneak some facts into the president’s... ]

Oliver returns for his first show since our so-called president assumed office. Nothing here we don't already know, but he has a creative suggestion. What a world where simple truth and sanity should be so refreshing.

Our so-called president's first military action: success or failure?

quote [ The operation raises serious questions about the planning and decision-making of the current occupant of the Oval Office, as well as the truthfulness of information coming out of the White House. ]

Much of this debate has focused on the personal conflict between Senator McCain and the White House and the relative sacrifice of a dead US Navy Seal. Not so much discussion of the 23 civilians killed in the botched raid.

Chaffetz booed at rowdy town hall

quote [ “You’re not going to like this part: the president, under the law, is exempt from conflict of interest laws,” Chaffetz told the loudly protesting crowd. ]

Very interesting to see this happening in Rep. Chaffetz's deep red, polite Mormon district. While the Democrats founder we might be seeing a popular uprising in the works. Stay tuned.

An American filmed the German army in WWI — until they became the enemy

quote [ Wilbur Durborough's forgotten film showcasing German soldiers has been restored by the Library of Congress. ]

See this incredible film in its entirety on the LOC blog site here. I suggest playing some period piano music in the background.

Republicans vote to rebuke Elizabeth Warren for citing Jeff Sessions' racist past

quote [ In an extraordinarily rare move, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell interrupted Warren's speech, saying she had breached Senate rules by reading past statements against Sessions from the late senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) and the late Coretta Scott King. ]

Because the truth hurts.
