Houston, We Have A Problem

By mike flugennockFriday - September 1st, 2017Categories: Party Animals, environment

Just to catch everybody up on the hurricane situation: the Republicans don’t believe climate change is real and might actually be a hoax; the Democrats believe climate change is real, but are trying to pin it on the Russians.

So, everybody straight on this?

Arizona Hurricane Victim

By mike flugennockSaturday - August 26th, 2017Categories: Trumpism, environment

So, as most of you know by now, Trump has pardoned one of the most horrific excuses for a sherriff in US history, one Joe Arpaio, proprietor of the open-air concentration camp in Maricopa County, Arizona, who was convicted of illegally profiling Latin immigrants for arrest.

Ya gotta hand it to the Orange one; his timing was impeccable on this one — handing down the pardon just as Hurricane Harvey was coming ashore on the Texas Gulf Coast at about 125mph, and thousands were evacuating inland — including many Latin immigrants.

To add insult to injury, the Border Patrol and other immigration police kept their checkpoints open to demand immigrants’ papers as they fled the storm, leaving “illegal” immigrants in danger of arrest and deportation. Yeah, that’s right — the goddamn’ La Migra were looking to nab immigrants in the middle of running for their lives. And to add even further insult, the mayor of Rockport, Texas advised anyone not evacuating to write their name and Social Security numbers on their arms so that their bodies could be identified.

Where the Bush Regime’s handling of the Katrina response was merely massively negligent, the Trump Junta’s Harvey response is straight-up malicious. It’s like the Katrina response turned up to 11.

J20 Defendants’ Solidarity Posters

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:
