Foreign Friend Asks: What is Being Done Against Trump??

When we want Trump out of power so badly, because he remains in power it is tempting but deceiving to think "nothing is being done."

That was a first thought when a European friend asked what is being done against Trump.

Can you help answer this queatuon by posting lists of accomplishments and/or efforts made against Trump?

To start:
1. We organized the largest midterm voter turnout in a century and flipped Jouse seats, 36 and counting....

2. How would you expand about our efforts and actions against Trump?

We Are Building a Beautiful BLUE WALL Today, and Trump is Gonna PAY For It!!

My prediction:

We Are Building a Beautiful BLUE WALL Today, and Trump is Gonna PAY For It!!

Please post what your beautiful blue wave.or wall looks like. Feel free to distinguish between hoping and thinking if they are different for you. I will post mine in a comment.

TrumpSpeak: Obama not Prez (not born here) but those born here aren't Citizens.

TrumpSpeak:

1. Obama is not the President because he's not a "natural born citizen" based on the fraudulent allegation that Obama was born abroad, but yet

2. Today shows that Trump also thinks people born here aren't even Citizens (despite the clear language of the 14th amendment) and he can reverse the Constitution with an Executive Order making citizenship an insecure political football.

Lemme guess: his "rules" are restricted in their application just to minority groups?

How I flipped two Southern Trumpians on the Caravan "Issue"

Two Trump supporters got into my rideshare car and were talking about the caravan. "What are we gonna do when these crooks in the 7000 person caravan reach our border?"

I replied: "This may not be what you're expecting, but everyone knows crooks are lazy. Crooks ain't gonna walk no 2,500 additional miles under a hot Mexican sun. So I say anyone who makes it we can process their application under due process and the rule of law."

One southern Trumpeter laughed, and then admitted crooks are lazy. The he said, "yeah, if they make it that far, I suppose we can just let them all in."

Note: by imagining the actual journey involved here, along with its risks and consequences over 2,500 miles, these couple of people otherwise disposed to a fearful militarized response flipped to an open borders position, whereas i had only advocated for due process (where some would likely get in, others not). The flip occurred, imo, because fear of crooks was removed and the frame altered so that they had to think about human beings walking 2,500 miles in the hot sun, and what that means...

No fear, no Trumpian positions.

US state Dept doc: Khashoggi stripped of speech rights after criticizing Trump

https://www.businessinsider.com/why-jamal-khashoggi-left-saudi-arabia-writing-ban-2018-10

This is revolting and despicable: Trump seeks the death penalty for the innocent Central Park teens, but covers up responsibility for the grisly torture murder of a Washington Post journalist who was banned.from speech in Saudi Arabia for criticizing then President-elect Trump.

Why there is NO WAY to Defend Kavanaugh's Demeanor

The claim is being made that Kavanaugh's belligerent and interrupting demeanor is "understandable" given the seriousness of the allegations and what he and his family are being "dragged through." This defense is absolutely unacceptable.

EVERY litigant, judge, lawyer, witness, Senate confirmee, and congressional witness, and yes even a defendant and a death penalty defendant, is required to comport themselves in a dignified, respectful and honest manner.

The seriousness of the charge is irrelevant, and if anything the seriousness of an allegation increases the demamds for proper temperament.

Kavanaugh disqualified himself simply by being disrespectful. Even if he hadn't been partisan, he disqualified himself, but his disrespectful belligerence falls below minimum standards for anyone in a courtroom or congressional process.

Indeed, the women who interrupted, got emotional and spoke their passionate opinions in earlier Kavanaugh hearings were ARRESTED and removed from the room, a fate they fully expected.
