    It's wrong that Pence came in to break the tie as Trump's tool. There was zero chance it would be a vote against -- the VP tiebreaker was the ace in the hole to get Trump his choice. I think what you kids really need to do is demand his justification for casting that vote -- why did he believe she was a suitable pick? Make him lie his sanctimonious ass off for the record. Or if he really favored her, make him explain how he can hear her dribble through all those hearings and still believe she has anything going except money, even a brain in her head. Make him tell you and the world why he did this to you. Write to him. Get a reporter at one of these rallies to take your question -- CNN or MSNBC. He owes you -- at least an answer.

    Young people, worldwide, we're gonna be ok. I know this because although times are harsh at the moment, YOU, the future of this planet and her people, are obtaining an education, and are shaping your convictions in ways that the Flower Power peace movements in the '60s can only envy. I look forward to your leadership. Your senses of justice, fair play, and solidarity will become very keen as you train in today's insane, lop-sided World U to become tomorrow's world leaders. Peace

    Good on ya kids keep right on protesting you're the new sons and daughters of liberty just like when the old patriots marched into Boston Harbor Cut open the cases of tea from the cargo holds of the ships and threw it into the harbor in protest to the king of England for unfair high tax on tea and to further demonstrate their resentment of a tyrant controlling them robbing them of even the most basics fundamentals that everyone should have with this new president and his administration gets done there will be no more free lunch programs for little children in the summertime when school lets out for the summer there be no more Medicaid will be no more Medicare they will privatize Social Security so they can steal it they will monetize education,,,that oil pipeline that's going to flow through Canada down through United States in and around Indian reservation land it's environmental train wreck waiting to happen with the presidents travel ban and his appointment of sessions as the attorney general it's like they've assassinate King all over again,,,, and I don't even want to get started on his pick for labor that guy used to be the head of Hardees restaurants and Carl's Jr. he is against the American worker in every way he's against raises for the minimum-wage workers rights,,,, everything Trump said that he was going to do for the working class and the poor is just exactly the opposite of he is actually going to do,,,, protest peacefully make it be heard call your representatives senators call everybody and protests let this country know how you feel he did not win the popular vote he lost by almost 3,000,000 votes let him and everyone else know it,,,, The Russians also hacked the election that right there tells me the selection should not stand he violated the emoluments clause because of his business interests for him and his family and his friend another reason this president should have never been sworn in to begin with in the first place,,,, not my president folks we need to get that message out loud and clear also how about all you students all across America pick a spot that is safe and peacefully protest we need at least 3 million students to come together and believe you me you'll be on CNN news and everything else in between the New York Times will be there the post and everybody else you could do your protests you could tell everyone how you feel and you could be holding up signs that read your ideals your viewpoints and opinions and some of those signs could read not my president and also you could hold some signs up that say hey Mr. not my president this is what 3 million people looks like by the way,,,,i'm proud of you all each and everyone you're the new sons and daughters of liberty bless you all

      EpicTyme Trump did not win the election he stole it. If we went strictly by the popular vote he lost to clip Hillary Clinton by almost three million votes. It's just that those ball as electoral college miscreants were manipulated and put him into office. Plus there was voter tampering and intimidation tactics used to keep people from voting and lest we forget the Russian influence. Not my president.

  • Anakka Hartwell

    What people are missing is that despite the protest, despite the calls and letters, nominations are happening, they do not care what the citizens want. The citizens did not vote for Trump, and this is a hostile takeover of the American Government, and as such, even if the front guy (Trump) is impeached all the damage remains with all the new appointee's still in place. There is a reason all of this is being done so fast and that is so that when Trump is impeached, he is after all the clown, Pence will take over with his cabinet of doom. I suspect they even feel that the Syrian gov has it right arresting and killing journalist, dissenters, and protesters. Trump is no longer the issue, the issue now are the people that now in place. Trumps presidency needs TO BE ANNULLED AND ALL ACTIONS TAKEN AFTER HIS SWEARING IN NEED TO BE REVERSED INCLUDING HIS DE FACTO CABINET. No one wanted them and they have been forced on us. Remember people, its not just trump, he is just the clown.

    The hypocrisy from the fake left is even worse than the hypocrisy from the fake right.Where were they when Obama was bombing the countries that are temporary banned?

    • J Gordon
      J Gordon 2 years ago

      C J Titan Yep. Obama and Clinton paved the way for Trump. I just saw Jimmy Dore report the Pentagon hid thousands of bombing raids from the public. Because if we recognized that our government bears responsibility for the refugee and immigration crisis, we'd have to change the policies.

    • C J Titan
      C J Titan 2 years ago

      @J Gordon
      I get that.
      I just don't see that much difference between, the fake left's policies and the fake right's.
      At least when it comes to the big picture.
      Foreign policy, economic policy and civil liberties.
      A perfect example.
      Both Trump and Obama create refugees and refuse to acknowledge the reason.
      We both know it's war, but most Americans sadly do not.
      Just like undocumented immigrants come here, mainly because of NAFTA and the drug war.
      We know that, most Americans do not.

    • J Gordon
      J Gordon 2 years ago

      C J Titan I am more interested in the hypocrisy of the current fascist-inspired Administration than in the possible moral imperfections of the millions of sane people who find fascism reprehensible.
      By the way, Jimmy Dore reported yesterday that the Pentagon failed to report thousands of air strikes in Afghanistan, etc to the American public. In other words, the government has been creating massive refugee problems. Then, when people try to escape, the Trump Administration wants to keep them from having a place to go.

      I have and do watch DN.
      They like all news outlets have spin.

      My point is, bombing and occupation is much worse than a temporary ban.
      That's why I call them hypocritical, dig?

      Darien Long GRSE! here we go again with another fake black troll. First of all during the black lives matter marches there are a myriad of people from different racial backgrounds cultures and religions. I seriously doubt you took down names and photos to know exactly which ones were in attendance. Also this device of bullshit you're trying to do to keep all the brown people all the other non-white male Rich elitist separated and fighting and distracted it's not going to work much longer. also black parents want a good education for their children as well so this March does affect them. You sound like a moron. Do you think that black children don't go to school or don't want to be educated ??? This tells me you are a racist divisive troll. anytime you see a photo of a black person on a website in most cases it's fake. Most black people don't put their pictures out on their websites unless they have a talking or news channel or some kind of entertainment or Business site.

      James Oates at least they have the opportunity to get a GPA right now but would DeVos in the educational seat they may not have that opportunity in the future. These elitist are moving towards getting rid of the public school system and making it on private. What this means is if you do not have enough money to put your kid in school then your child will either be uneducated or force be educated by a computer and someone to stay home with them when we get educated by a dumb computer. just like in third world Nations. Only the house will be here to cated and the middles and the Have Nots will not. watch out for this because this is their plan. you can better control and uneducated public. they're planning on using more more automation to replace human beings anyway and jobs. So the last thing they want is thinking human beings here. they want that reserved for only the 1% and their offspring. So that they can maintain control over us.

    Freeloading is going to become very unfashionable. Looks like such unfashionablity will start with education. Can't wait for an end to public schools. Government has proven that it doesn't know any more about education than it knows about how to run an economy or businesses or healthcare. Very exciting times indeed.

    • Bill Goode
      Bill Goode 2 years ago

      Now that's a pretty ignorant comment, thinking that wanting to end freeloading on government and working for less government is fascist. Have you noticed that government education is dumbing down American children?
      You're so ignorant you can't even tell the difference between libertarianism, fascism and communism. Your comment is so ignorant that you lump everyone you disagree with into the same category and can't tell whether they're communist or fascist, when all the time the person you're addressing is libertarian, which in all likelihood you know nothing about. That's a pretty good assumption, because you obviously know nothing about the state of education in America or how to deal with it.

    There have been protests for the last 240 years.. Give or take a few years...Yes, they can see and hear you better now with all your phone cameras. However, none of your protests will work.. They will do what they want anytime they want... They don't care about you, me or anybody. Its all about the money.. Money is power. You cannot fight that...You and me are peons. Get a job, go to school do the best you can.. These days again with all the cameras they will know who you are.. Think of your future, keep a low profile and get off the Government tab.. Do not let know who you are! Doing all the things you are doing will never work....It never has.

      PinkPonyOfPrey I hope no one gets hurt in the process either. But I do think that Revolution is in the air and growing against our government. Because it is becoming painfully apparent that it does not serve the common citizenry of the United States anymore. they have forgotten that they are public servants and they not treat us as if we are the servants. that's a recipe for every Revolution against a government that has ever existed. when you see your Country turning into the land of the Lord's and the serfs Lookout things are not going to be pretty !!!

    I used to be this crazy back in my college days. protesting at everything and anything. so idealistically foolish.
    Seeing these protests is quite laughable looking back at my own outrage back then.
    When these idiots start looking for jobs and paying taxes, paying for healthcare insurance etc. they'll soon realize their stupidity.

Just now his pick of secretary of defence threatening Japan to keep the US millitary base, after the orange hitler insults japan saying that the US millitary base was for Japan benefit. This Orange Hitler clearly does not know how US themselves wanted the millitary base stasioned there and how badly japan wanted to get rid of it. Only to back tracked and helps japan with their's v. china disputes againts shikoku.

      Veniese Wilkinson please do. We need to vote these Republican miscreants out of there. Until we get them out of Congress we will have very little to no power over this monster that we have in the presidency or even if we manage to get someone in the presidency of her choosing. we have to change the Congress and the Senate to get power. I don't know why the Democrats and the progressives have not stress this fact. Obama tried to but it was just too late in the game. Republicans have been on the list for years and they used it to their advantage and they still are.

  • antithetical 1

    Lest people forget, Obama was presiding over our invasion of Syria where we have been arming terrorist groups to overthrow Assad, a cruel dictator who allows religious freedom. Terrorists are not going to be better than Assad, they are already raping and torturing children on up. Obama gave more executive power to Trump even as he was exiting the white-house. Obama was only marginally better than Trump, he just hid it better. We need to fight more than Trump and the republicans, we need to get money out of politics, sever the tie between corporations and politicians so they will represent we the people instead of perpetual oil wars, banks gambling with OUR money and taking OUR tax dollars when they lose, and the constant attack on all social programs as well as medical insurance/drug costs. Not to mention the full scale attack being waged on our civil rights and the constitution itself! This is a big fight that must be ended with great candidates and smart voting at every level.
