“And each year in our nation, 1.6 million innocent babies are slaughtered for the mere crime of being born” Sir with all due respect, I think you dont realize these babies have not been born. And none are considered “babies” in utero.

Men should not make decisions for women, certainly not medical ones, for this very reason

Send Donald Trump a postcard

Mail Donald Trump a postcard that publicly expresses our opposition to him
Wednesday, March 15

We, in vast numbers, from all corners of the world, will overwhelm the man with his unpopularity and failure. We will show the media and the politicians what standing with him — and against us — means. And most importantly, we will bury the White House post office in pink slips, all informing Donnie that he’s fired.
Each of us — every protester from every march, each congress calling citizen, every boycotter, volunteer, donor, and petition signer — if each of us writes even a single postcard and we put them all in the mail on the same day, March 15th, well: you do the math.
No alternative fact or Russian translation will explain away our record-breaking, officially-verifiable, warehouse-filling flood of fury. Hank Aaron currently holds the record for fan mail, having received 900,000 pieces in a year. We’re setting a new record: over a million pieces in a day.
So sharpen your wit, unsheathe your writing implements, and see if your honesty and candor can pierce Donald’s famously thin skin.
Prepare for March 15th, 2017, a day hereafter to be known as #TheIdesOfTrump
Write one postcard. Write a dozen! Take a picture and post it on social media tagged with #TheIdesOfTrump ! Spread the word! Everyone on Earth should let Donnie know how he’s doing. They can’t build a wall high enough to stop the mail.
Then, on March 15th, mail your messages to:
President (for now) Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Men of Steel

 This year I am trying to get my news & information in more direct ways rather than through the filter of mainstream media. I subscribe to many Senators newsletters including Republican ones b/c I like to know directly what they are telling people.I found this interesting for the fact that it tells a little about improvements being made in manufacturing here in the U.S> BUT ALSO MENTIONS THINGS PRESIDENT OBAMA DID that no GOP member has acknowledged (other than Rob Portman, here in his newsletter)

From Sen. Rob Portman’s weekly newsletter: Rob Portman is Republican.

 

 

“The Steel Industry Preservation Act would provide a tax credit for steel companies that produce steel industry fuel, which is created by reusing waste products from steel production in an environmentally sustainable way. In addition to the tax credit, the production of steel industry fuel lowers the cost of steel production and promotes job creation.

Portman and Brown have also worked to give domestic industries the ability to fight unfair trade practices and Senator Portman has been widely acclaimed for his commitment to steel workers. In June 2015, their Leveling the Playing Field Act was signed into law by President Barack Obama, ushering in the most significant changes to trade remedy law since 2002.”

trumps EO is not just like Obama’s

From the Washington Post

 

Is Trump’s policy “similar to what President Obama did in 2011″?

Not really. Obama didn’t announce a ban on visa applications. There were reported delays in processing Iraqi refugee background checks after a 2011 case involving two Iraqi refugees in Bowling Green, Ky. Federal officials had found that the two men had attempted to help terrorist activities against U.S. soldiers in Iraq. (This is what White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway later called the “Bowling Green massacre,” which, of course, didn’t happen. She later called it an “honest mistake.”)

There were new screening procedures, but there wasn’t a policy that prevented all citizens from a country, like Trump’s executive order. We awarded Three Pinocchios.

Are foreign-born people more likely to attack the U.S. homeland?

The order says “numerous foreign-born individuals have been convicted or implicated in terrorism-related crimes since Sept. 11, 2001.” Of about 400 individuals charged with or credibly involved in jihad-inspired activity in the U.S. since 9/11, just under half (197) were U.S.-born citizens, according to research by the nonpartisan think tank New America Foundation. Another 82 were naturalized citizens and 44 were permanent residents.
