Crimethinc writes in their Call For An International Week Of Solidarity, July 20-17, 2017:

We are calling for a Week of Solidarity with the J20 defendants from July 20 to 27, 2017. July 20 marks six months from the initial actions and arrests during Donald Trump’s inauguration, and on July 27, a motion to dismiss the charges will be argued in court. The case has finally begun to receive the media attention it warrants; with this court date approaching and the cases underway, this is a crucial time for a second Week of Solidarity.

On January 20, 2017, thousands of people came to Washington, DC to protest the presidential inauguration of Donald Trump. In the early morning, blockades shut down security checkpoints and discouraged people from attending the inauguration itself, while impromptu marches and direct actions occurred throughout the day. There was a spirit of defiance in the air.

Midmorning, an “anticapitalist and antifascist” march of several hundred people made clear its opposition not just to Trump but also the system that made Trump possible… After about half an hour, the march was brutally attacked by police, who used chemical and crowd control weapons along with physical force, then boxed in (“kettled”) and mass-arrested people. Everyone on an entire city block was arrested and given the same charge of felony rioting. Approximately 214 arrestees now face a total of eight felony charges, including conspiracy and destruction of property. All of the J20 defendants are now facing up to 75 years in prison.

These 11×17 posters are 300dpi jpg images, approximately 1.7mb each:

Tinfoil Hatter

Anyone who’s been paying any attention at all to what’s going on in this country knows that we’ve got a veritable buffet of issues waiting to be dealt with — healthcare, civil liberties, the neo-fascist threat, bloated war spending, police brutality, you name it.

So, what’s the Democratic Party up to? Yep, that’s right — they’re still pitching a tantrum, looking for someone to blame for their abject impotence, their sucking on toast in the last election, with their teeth clamped around their Russian hacking conspiracy theory like a dog with an old shoe.

Still blaming the Greens, the Berniecrats, the Left and the Russians, it’s looking like the Democrats are right on track to get their asses crushed again in the midterms next year. They’re going to go down hard and I, for one, am loving it.

Yer Liberals, no. 3

By mike flugennockSaturday - April 29th, 2017Categories: 2016 Election, Party Animals, elections

For the better part of a year and a half, Liberals have been screeching about how Sanders wasn’t “a real Democrat”, saying he was “damaging” the Democrats and that he and his supporters should leave the party — and after a year and a half of bullying, public insults, blame-shifting, gaslighting and other abuse, most progressive Democrats and other Left constituencies are thinking that ditching the Democratic Party sounds like a helluvan idea.

Needless to say these days, Liberals aren’t getting the reaction they’re hoping for from the Left on that point and, of course, the Liberals are having kind of a hard time getting their heads around it. Seems that finally, Liberal Democrats and the Left have reached common ground – just not in the way Liberals wanted.

And by the way, I need to send a shout-out and huge-ass props to Nina Illingworth, one of my favorite Left bloggers, who busts balls with straight raw truth, written in the kind of no-bullshit, smash-mouth style I really dig. A tweet she posted a week or so ago pretty much handed me this gag on a plate. Don’t forget to check out her blog, and toss a few bucks in her tip jar if you can. Thanks again, Nina.
