The Resistance Now: a healthy dose of reality/Impeach Trump?

We go again

Senate Republicans have been sweating away over the latest version of their healthcare bill over the past week. Now they’ve come out and slapped it down on the table.

Unluckily for the GOP …

a) Activists are both energized and accustomed to thwarting ill-thought out healthcare legislation.

b) It appears that some Republicans are unlikely to vote for it.

On Monday, police arrested 80 people who were protesting the second Senate bill in Washington. There have been signs that protests, phone calls and letter-writing are having an impact.

Susan Collins of Maine opposed the first bill and has already said she she will vote no on the second. Rob Portman of Ohio – a particular focus for activists – also appears to be wavering. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia isn’t keen either.

A Huffington Post/YouGov survey released on Thursday found that healthcare is the issue most Americans are most concerned about right now: 47% of respondents said healthcare was one of the top two issues they were worried about, with the economy at 37%. Just 12% of respondents put Russia in their top two.

Battle for an open internet

Tech giants joined forces with online activists and free speech groups on Wednesday for a day of protest against Trump administration plans to roll back net neutrality rules.

Amazon, Facebook, Netflix and other tech giants all highlighted their opposition to the plans. The activist group Fight for the Future said the day of protest had resulted in more than 3.45m emails being sent to Congress, while the Federal Communications Commission received more than 1.6m comments – a record for a single day.

In May, the FCC voted 2-1 to start the formal process of dismantling rules that prevent ISPs from creating fast or slow lanes to favor one user over another and potentially allow them to choose winners and losers online.

Impeach Trump?

More than 3,000 people are expected to gather in New York City on Saturday for an Impeach Trump! National Day of Protest. Protesters will gather outside Trump Tower for the event, which is organized by Refuse Fascism.

The rather optimistic title – the event was initially called the Trump Impeachment Party – came to be because it was created “with the mindset that Trump would be impeached within a matter of weeks since his election”, said organiser Mohammad Hamad, adding that he and others would try to turn the march into something broader in the coming months.

“We’ll continue to fight the Trump-Pence regime because they’ve already made their agenda clear and it will have a generational impact on Americans (and the world) if they get away with it,” Hamad said.

Progressivism can work everywhere

Matt Yglesias has a fascinating piece at Vox on how a progressive message can appeal in affluent suburbs – such as in Atlanta’s sixth congressional district, where Jon Ossoff lost on a more centrist platform in June. It’s because the GOP’s proposed tax cuts will only benefit the fabled 1%, Yglesias says.

“The reality is that even the richest GOP-held congressional district in the country, Virginia’s 10th, has a median household income of ‘only’ $110,000 – far too low for most voters to benefit from the GOP’s proposed top rate cut, or even from … repeal of the Affordable Care Act’s taxes, which fall on households earning more than $250,000 a year.”

9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out
by Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth

The 43 technical experts interviewed in Experts Speak Out lay out the case for controlled demolition from their individual areas of expertise in hi-rise architecture, structural engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, and controlled demolition. The seeming implausibility of the implications of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers being demolished with explosives is also handled quite skillfully in the film, as eight experts in psychology discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting the myth-shattering reality. This is a newly released DVD.

The Must Have Emergency Tool!

Etón FR160B Microlink Self-Powered (Hand Crank Power) AM/FM/NOAA Weather Radio with Flashlight, Solar Power and Cell Phone Charger (Black)
by Eton

AM (520-1710 KHz) & FM (87-108MHz) NOAA weatherband USB cell phone charger (USB cable not included) 3.5 mm headphone Accessories: owner"s manual, warranty card

Reviews: Excellent Item for Travel, Backpacking, Camping, Etc.

This radio is a great little investment. It does exactly everything it states it should. On a 60 second crank I got hours of play. I ran the radio completely dead by leaving the light on and the radio playing at half column. I let the radio play like this with the light on for at least an hour before it went dead. I then put it out in the sun and let it charge with the solar charger for about four hours and then turned the radio on and let it play for only about an hour and then just didn't want to complete the experiment. I am very pleased with this radio. 60 seconds of cranking for hours of play is very reasonable. Letting it charge out in the sun and getting hours of play is very reasonable. I have other brands like this in the past that you would crank for 5 to 10 and get maybe 10 minutes of play.

The USB charge does work, but know that it will not charge an iPhone 3Gs. This is more a problem/restriction of the iPhone 3Gs (a widely discussed complaint across the Internet for many-many generic charging devices) and is not because of the radio. Charging my old Samsung phone was not a problem.

Capitalism: A Love StoryCapitalism: A Love Story. On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece "Roger & Me," Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" comes home to the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans. But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene is far wider than Flint, Michigan.
