Republicans Are Now Openly Organizing Against Trump – This Is Unprecedented

With the FBI raid on Trump’s attorney’s office, Trump is raging, brooding, and “bitching and moaning” inside the White House, and allies of his are again floating the idea of firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller. We all know Democrats are working their tails off to keep this from happening, and some Republicans in Congress have made noises about protecting Mueller as well. However, now it seems that there are Republicans who have just flat-out had it with Trump and his whole attitude toward being investigated.

They’re fed up to the point that they’re organizing against him, and by “organizing,” we mean that they’ve started an actual 501(4)(c) organization intended to stop any attempts to fire Mueller. It’s called Republicans for the Rule of Law, with people like Bill Kristol as one of the founding directors. For those who don’t know, Bill Kristol is very conservative on a lot of issues, but he also can’t stand Trump any more than anyone else with brains bigger than amoebas.

Of course, we can argue till the end of time that they’re still Republicans and they still support some incredibly vile things, and are complicit in, or responsible for, some of the worst atrocities going on here in the U.S. We can say we should just write them off, but the problem is this: Republicans still control all of Washington and a majority of states, and if we are to hold Trump accountable for anything, we need these Republicans to stand with us.

Right now the website is little more than dire warnings about firing Mueller from prominent Republicans such as Lindsey Graham. It also has a sort of petition on which voters can add their names to the growing list of anti-Trump Republicans. Their statement is simple, saying:

“Mr. President: Firing Robert Mueller would gravely damage the Presidency, the GOP and the country.

Please don’t do it.”

They’ve put out a video ad, too, praising Mueller and talking up his credentials, and urging people to call their representatives to ask them to protect Mueller.

Trump is already running scared. If he fires Mueller, Republicans for the Rule of Law will make sure he’s left with nothing but a bunch of impotent sycophants for allies.

Watch the Men arrested at Starbucks speak out

Unless you have been living under a rock, you already know that Starbucks has been under a nationwide outcry following an incident in Philadelphia where two African-American’s were wrongfully kicked out of a Starbucks store and arrested.

The short story goes like this: Two African American men (Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson) where waiting inside of a Starbucks for their friend. The manager asked them to leave or he would call the cops since the two men didn’t purchase anything (they were considered to be loitering,) and these two men were arrested.

The story instantly made national news and Starbucks became racist enemy number one. Now Starbucks in an attempt to save its image, has decided that it will close down all of its location next month (for only a few hours) in order to provide racial bias training to its employees.

The men who were arrested during this incident at Starbucks are finally speaking out about exactly what happen in the Philadelphia Starbucks that day and what they hope the rest of the world can learn from this situation.

Trump Goes INSANE Over Comey Book Tour, Goes On Bizarre Mike Flynn Rant (TWEET)

 

Everyone remembers how Trump’s disgraced National Security Adviser Michael Flynn went from being a decorated Four Star General to flipping on the man-baby “president” in order to avoid decades in federal lock up. Now that the FBI Director Trump fired in order to try and stop the probe into his campaign’s shady dealings with the Russian government has released a book that contains all the juicy details on just how sleazy and corrupt Trump is – from Russian hookers to obstruction of justice – Trump is really panicking now that the noose is tightening around his neck, and it shows.

In an early morning Twitter rant, Trump goes off on how Flynn is wrapped up in a federal investigation while Comey basks in the spotlight as he does a press tour to both promote his book and warn the American people about just what kind of man Trump is. Trump tweeted in an unhinged, grammatical mess of a tirade:

Trump, if anyone is shady in all of this, it is you. You’re the one who showed James Comey right away, before you were even sworn into office, that you had absolutely no respect for the role of the FBI and the FBI Director with regards to the line that must exist between institutions of justice and the White House. You showed this man of integrity your lack thereof, and you made sure he understood that you wanted his loyalty to be to you, rather than to the rule of law. Michael Flynn showed where his loyalties were as well – and they weren’t to the oath he took when he joined the military and swore to protect this great nation from the likes of men like you.

In short, if any lives have been destroyed, it’s on you and Michael Flynn. I hope you toss and turn every night and grow ever more unhinged until you finally crack and the men in white coats carry you off.

Another School Shooting Just Minutes Before Students Were Set To Walk Out Against Gun Violence

Another School Shooting Just Minutes Before Students Were Set To Walk Out Against Gun Violence

Students in every state are starting to walk out in protest of gun violence, including school shootings in our gun-saturated country. Today’s date is a familiar one as the walkout marks the 19th anniversary of the school shooting in Columbine, Colorado, an event that marked the start of an era of deadly school rampages. In the Washington, D.C. area, students gathered in front of the White House and plan to walk to the Capitol later during the day. But, students at an Ocala, Florida high school could not participate because they were on lockdown following a shooting that left one student injured.

Marion Public Schools spokesman Kevin Christian said the student was shot in the ankle and transported to a hospital with a non-life threatening injury. A suspect was taken into custody in what marks the 20th US school shooting this year, according to CNN.

One of the students at the high school tweeted a jaw-dropping picture of his barricaded classroom, showing the reality kids have to live in today.

As a precaution, all other schools in Marion County were put on a partial lockdown.

At least Florida’s Republican Governor didn’t offer ‘thoughts and prayers.’

Friday’s walkout comes about a month after people gathered in cities nationwide for the March for Our Lives rallies. In 1999, students at Columbine High School were massacred. 15 people died, including the two teens who went on a shooting spree. Since then, nothing has changed, not even after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre that took 20 children’s lives, between six and seven years old, as well as six adult staff members.

But this time, it will be the children who bring about change.
