Booker's statement on Bannon

Over the course of his campaign, Donald Trump degraded and demeaned Americans, threatened our rights, and attacked the privileges of citizenship. He will have a disastrous presidency if he governs that way, and he must show the American people with words and action how he will change direction. Many have offered to give him a chance to do so, despite his divisive campaigning, and he should not squander that opportunity to unite our nation.
Elevating Steve Bannon—a man who leads a website that promotes truly radical views about race and religion, whose appointment was celebrated by neo-Nazis and denounced by the Anti-Defamation League, and who has been condemned by Republicans and Democrats alike—to one of the highest positions in the White House installs a man with fringe and dangerous ideologies just steps from the Oval Office.
Bannon won't build bridges, he will burn them. He is unfit to advise America's commander-in-chief. Donald Trump should reverse the decision to hire him and chart a different course for the good of the American people.


Hopefully we can get some republicans to repudiate him as well. Hey Mark Kirk, you were anti-trump and are on the way out anyway, why don't you use your voice for something good!

Reading serious experts respond to this thing on Twitter is depressing as fuck and drives home that our problems extend well beyond Trump.

On a related note, I wonder if George Mason University will ever produce "scholars" who aren't cookie-cutter Fed Soc dweebs whose entire argument you already know by virtue of seeing "GMU" next to their name.

As someone who has never contacted a state rep before, what should I say? "I think this is awful and I would like to know your position and what you intend to do about it?"

Keep in mind that my rep is Bobby Rush, who helped found the Illinois chapter of the Black Panthers, so it should be an easy sell.

tgk wrote:I made a bunch of calls last night. my two senators, my congress rep, and then paul ryan and mitch mcconnel. if you're nervous talking off the cuff, write yourself a script. Give them your name, tell them you're a voter in their district/state, demand that they make a statement condemning pres elects choice of noted white supremacist steve bannon, who does not belong anywhere near the white house. I usually end by saying that if you want the country to come together you must reject racism and hatred blah blah blah.

It's also important to remember many of these reps have local and DC offices, so if you can't get through to one try the other.

KevMac, the thing with calling a rep/senator is it's less about the particulars of the message (it's just going to be some lowly staffer taking your complaints) and more about its vociferousness and the number of people who complain. Don't worry too much about what to say beyond the broad message of this is a terrible and dangerous choice.

lol

Unlike his predecessors, Trump faces or is pursuing a slew of civil lawsuits, perhaps as many as 75....The news is awash with reports that Trump’s lawyers have asked for a delay of proceedings until inauguration, saying the president-elect is now too busy to participate. But it is hard to see how Trump would have more time for this suit after he moves into the White House. Being president is not a part-time job.

....The new president appears doomed to be distracted by his private concerns. Fortunately, a solution is within our grasp. Congress can pass a law that would put these kinds of civil actions on hold while President Trump remains in office. The law would have to provide that any lawsuit against a sitting president or president-elect, filed before or after he or she assumed office, would not proceed until the president left office. Such a law wouldn’t protect the president from impeachment or criminal prosecution, but it would ensure that Trump would not be distracted by civil litigation arising out of his personal life or business interests.

that is.. not just bad, but really bad, right?

Is Krobach the anti-immigration asswipe who first drafts phony bills, then defends it in court, loses, and charges, is that Krobach?

I mean, Obama is intelligent and knowledgeable and an incredible speaker. It's kind of intimidating.

If anything, Trump should be more inspiring that literally anyone can do anything they want.
