Senator David Perdue doesn’t “do” Townhalls …

Senator Perdue does not prefer to do Town Hall meetings, as he prefers more “one on one” meetings with constituents (donors and businesses.)

So, he has “Office Hours” events that he does not attend as had his aids there on his behalf. There are some people that thought that just wasn’t acceptable and decided to show up (about 175) at his event in McDonough, GA, a town just south of the Atlanta sprawl. This place is not a Democratic stronghold by any means. This is the second “Office Hours” during the recess, the first one on Grensboro, GA, a joint event with Senator Isakson and Congressman Jody Hice. That meeting had overflowing crowds that were pretty darn vocal.

Local activists and advocate are planning more demonstrations calling for Town Halls by Senators Perdue and Isakson during the recess.
I haven’t seen Georgia get so fired up since the march in Forsyth County in 1987.

Glad to see it.

Donald Trump refuses to release tax returns because ‘I won’

If Trump Wants a ‘Hacking Defense’ Strategy, He Should Just Use Obama’s

Arriving late to what was supposed to amount to a press conference, Trump, as expected, avoided answering any questions of a ‘delicate’ manner. Never mind the latest revelations from intelligence, someone asked him if he would release the tax returns. I’m sure you can guess what his response was. REPORTER: Do you believe the hacking was… Continue Reading →

Dear Leader is such a great guy

mitt romney continues to shine

Trump is a Heather at heart:

Donald Trump’s long-time but informal adviser Roger Stone says the Secretary of State job was dangled in front of Mitt Romney in order to “torture” him for previously opposing the president-elect.

During a Sunday appearance on InfoWars with Alex Jones, a conspiratorial media outlet that has become a mouthpiece of the next president, Stone called Romney a “choker” and said that Trump was simply toying with him.

“Donald Trump was interviewing Mitt Romney for Secretary of State in order to torture him,” Stone claimed on the program. “To toy with him. And given the history, that’s completely understandable. Mitt Romney crossed a line. He didn’t just oppose Trump, which is his democratic right, he called him a phony and a fraud. And a con man. And that’s not the kind of man you want as Secretary of State.”

Newspaper owned by Trump son-in-law prints op-ed urging FBI to crack down on protests

Reprinted with permission from Alternet. The New York Observer, a newspaper owned by Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, published an opinion piece last Friday calling for the FBI to launch a coordinated crackdown on nationwide anti-Trump protests, mobilizations, and recount efforts. Titled “Comey’s FBI Needs to Investigate Violent Democratic Tantrums,” the article was written by Austin… Continue Reading →

Let’s not congratulate him

The day after Trump's election.

Connie Schultz writes what a lot of us are thinking:

Don’t ask us to congratulate him.

Not today. Not this week. Not ever, probably.

He stands for so much of what we’d dared to hope was behind us as a country. Bigotry, misogyny, xenophobia. He spewed it with reckless abandon, and now he is going to be our next president.

Of course we are distancing ourselves. We love our families, our communities and our country. Our commitment is not a charade. And we want to live with ourselves.

This is not a sporting event. This is not about good manners. Sometimes there is no deliverance in the fake smile, the phony congratulations.

This would be one of those times.

We are exhausted but wide-awake aware. We have no choice, because we are his targets — a diverse group, which, in his view, qualifies us as the collective enemy. We are women. We are immigrants. We are black and Latino. We are Muslims and Jews. We are gay and lesbian, bisexual and transgender. We are the people on the margins, the ones invisible in plain sight.

We have listened to him talk about us for months. We know him.

Go read the rest.
